The U.N. has a plan to make every Miss America Pageant contestant happy by bringing about “world peace.”

All it will take, says the draft of a visionary proposal by the U.N. Development Program, is to getting rid of all the pesky nations of the world.

In fact, the plan endorsed by prominent world figures including Nobel laureates, bankers, politicians and economists to end nation-states as we know them is also designed to end health pandemics, poverty and “global warming.” So far, the U.N. hasn’t mentioned whether the proposal will do anything for obesity.

The U.N. says an unprecedented outbreak of co-operation between countries, applied through six specific financial tools, would serve as pretty much a cure-all for the world’s ills and generate an extra $7 trillion in economic growth.

The authors of the ambitious report don’t expect nations to fold up and take the hint any time soon. But the idea is to start the ball rolling – and maybe years or decades from now the world will actually be ready to listen.

Most of the focus of the U.N. plan is on global warming – a climate change phenomenon some consider to be more theory than reality. But it seems to be the central component in the U.N.’s globalization scheme for the future – the very organizing principal behind the push to eliminate borders, sovereign governments and autonomous nation-states.

If the scheme seems far-fetched, consider that it already has the backing of the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, according to the London Independent.

The U.N. plan includes six immediate action steps:

 

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions through pollution permit trading;

     

  • Cut poor countries’ borrowing costs by securing the debts against the income from stable parts of their economies;

     

  • Reduce government debt costs by linking payments to the country’s economic output;

     

  • An aggressive campaign of worldwide vaccinations;

     

  • Tapping into the vast flow of money from migrants back to their home country;

     

  • Aid agencies underwriting loans to market investors to lower interest rates.

    It’s not the first time the U.N. has come out openly to suggest global government is the only solution to the world’s problems. “Our Global Neighborhood” was a 410-page final report of the Commission on Global Governance, and was first published in 1995 by Oxford University Press. That 28-member “independent commission,” created by former German Chancellor Willy Brandt, developed the following strategy, as reported in the EcoSocialist Review: “To represent a shot-across-the-bow of George Bush’s New World Order, and make clear that now is the time to press for the subordination of national sovereignty to democratic transnationalism.”

    Then-U.N. Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali endorsed the commission, and the U.N. provided significant funding. The plan calls for dramatically strengthening the United Nations, by implementing a laundry list of recommendations, including these:

     

  • Eliminating the veto and permanent member status in the Security Council;

     

  • Authorizing global taxation on currency exchange and use of the “global commons;”

     

  • Creating an International Criminal Court;

     

  • Creating a standing army under the command of the secretary-general;

     

  • Creating a new Economic Security Council;

     

  • Creating a new People’s Assembly;

     

  • Regulating multinational corporations;

     

  • Regulating the global commons;

     

  • Controlling the manufacture, sale and distribution of all firearms.

    And none of those recommendations were new. All had been proposed in a variety of documents for decades by various groups and individuals. However, this did mark the first time the comprehensive plan for global governance was published with the approval and funding support of the United Nations.

    To justify the sweeping changes proposed by the commission, a new concept of “security” was offered. The U.N.’s mission under its present charter is to provide “security” to its member nations through “collective” action. The new concept expands the mission of the U.N. to be the security of the people – and the security of the planet.

    Thus, in their speeches to the U.N.’s Millennium Assembly in 2000, both Secretary General Kofi Annan and President Bill Clinton made reference to this new concept, saying national sovereignty could no longer be used as an excuse to prevent the intervention by the U.N. to provide “security” for people inside national boundaries.

    To provide security for the planet, the plan called for authorizing the U.N. Trusteeship Council to have “trusteeship” over the “global commons,” which the plan defines to be: ” … the atmosphere, outer space, the oceans beyond national jurisdiction, and the related environment and life-support systems that contribute to the support of human life.”
