Are you ready for world government? Are you willing to cede national
sovereignty to the United Nations? Are you prepared to become a citizen
of the world and give up your individual rights as guaranteed by the
U.S. Constitution?

For most of you, I suspect the answer to all of these questions is a
resounding “NO!” But it’s time for the questions to be asked — past
time, really.

The reason? The U.N. is planning a conference — a “Millennium
Summit” — next month, coinciding with the 55th session of the General
Assembly, that will either set the world on an inevitable march toward
global government or raise enough questions to wake up Americans to the
looming threat.

Here’s a little of what’s on the agenda:

  • the final formulation and implementation of an International
    Criminal Court, making the U.S. and other national judicial systems
    subservient to international law;

  • creating a global tax system, including levees on airline
    tickets, shipping and international commerce, to provide the U.N. with
    an additional and independent source of revenue;

  • the creation of a U.N. standing army dubbed a “Rapid Reaction

  • establishment of international

    gun-control regulations;

  • the cancellation of Third World debt;

  • nuclear disarmament;

  • the creation of a new international welfare system to redistribute wealth from rich countries to poor;

  • the redefinition of human rights;

  • promotion of a global agenda for “sustainable development” — meaning further diminishment of the concept of property rights;

  • backing of special rights and considerations for homosexuals and others based on sexual proclivities and behaviors;

  • a proposal for a “companion flag” for all humanity to be flown with national flags;

“Poverty is a violation of human rights,” declare the organizers. “With some 1.3 billion people living in extreme poverty, it is the most widespread violation of human rights in the world. Poverty exists not only in the developing countries, but is also a dramatic and often hidden reality in the industrialized countries. Particularly affected are disadvantaged and underrepresented groups — indigenous people, people with disabilities, women, children and the elderly. Hunger and HIV/AIDS pandemic are also highly related to poverty. … Poverty eradication is not an automatic consequence of economic growth but requires purposeful action to redistribute wealth, construction of a safety net and the universal basic livelihood allocation.”

The Millennium Summit promises to be the largest-ever gathering of heads of state or government in history. Yet there has been precious little in the way of news coverage. I wonder why. You would think every news organization in the world would be reporting on a conference with such an ambitious agenda and involving so many world leaders. Instead, I think you will find that is about the only news organization in the world that has given

any significant coverage to
this event.

The U.N. is certainly making no secret of the gathering.

You can
read about it for yourself.

Am I being paranoid? Is there good cause for ignoring this international event? Is it just a bunch of hot air?

Since the creation of the U.N. 50 years ago, the globalization process has been advancing steadily, albeit sometimes slowly. It’s possible, I believe, that the Millennium Summit could provide a jumpstart to this evil and dangerous trend.

On the other hand, there’s something very positive about this event. It’s right out in the open. Even though a complacent media establishment is obscuring the goals and objectives, the U.N. sponsors simply can’t hide their zeal for power. Thus, this summit could serve to stimulate honest debate about the true agenda of the United Nations for the first time in 50 years.

And that’s what we need. In fact, what we need is a vigorous debate for the first time ever on whether or not there is any purpose in the United States remaining in the United Nations, supporting it with tax dollars and tolerating its arrogant demands for more and more sacrifice by Americans.

Rep. Ron Paul has introduced legislation to withdraw the U.S. from the U.N. So far only 56 members have sponsored the bill.

I believe a
concerted e-mail campaign by WorldNetDaily readers could easily double
the number of co-sponsors.

If the U.N. wants the spotlight, let’s give it to them.
