It was reported that the Vatican sought "a supranational authority" which would have worldwide scope and "universal jurisdiction" to guide and control global economic policies and decisions. China's new push for closer ties with Russia, the growing intrusions from the United Nations with regards to control of the Internet and the latest remarks made by the Catholic Church all point to a new world order that will set in stone a path the world may not be able to recover from. – Activist Post
Dominant Social Theme: Global is the new good.
Free-Market Analysis: According to Andrew Puhanic, contributor to the alternative media website the Activist Post, the Vatican (the Pope) has called for world government and a New World Order …
He writes that the leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI, has recently made a speech at the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace (Monday, December 3, 2012) calling for the "construction of a world community, with a corresponding authority [serving] the common good of the human family."
Here at The Daily Bell we were lucky enough to have a friend who used Google to translate the speech and confirmed that from what he could tell, the reports were accurate. We haven't seen the speech but if the reports are true, the Vatican is proposing a kind of genocide.
Does that sound too blunt? In the 20th century, governments one way or another murdered up to 150 million people. What on Earth gives the Vatican an assurance that world government will not be even MORE merciless?
And there seems little question, from what we can tell – again, if the reports are accurate – that the Pope is proposing a GOVERNMENT. Here's more from the article:
As a means of defending global peace and justice, the pope's vision for the establishment of World Government and a New World Order is supposedly not to create a new superpower, but a new governing body that offers to those (politicians) who are responsible for making decisions, criteria for judgment and practical guidelines.
The Pope was quoted as saying: "The proposed body (World Government) would not be a superpower, concentrated in the hands of a few, which would dominate all peoples, exploiting the weakest."
The Pope also described his vision as a "moral force" or moral authority that has the "power to influence in accordance with reason, that is, a participatory authority, limited by law in its jurisdiction."
Puhanic points out that the Pope's remarks are historically congruent. "These latest remarks made by the Pope and the Catholic Church come as no surprise considering that in 2010 the Catholic Church sought the establishment of a new Central World Bank that would be responsible for regulating the global financial industry and the international money supply."
Unfortunately for the Pope's stance regarding world government, the facts simply seem unimpeachable. The bigger the government, the more merciless it is and the more dangerous to the people who live under its sway.
The Pope and the Vatican expect that such a government would NOT be a superpower? Exactly how do they know? They expect such a government to provide a "moral force" and yet be "limited by law."
This is the stuff of fairytales. If man ever did by chance erect global government, it would be neither limited nor moral. The entire bloody history of humankind shows that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
The best way for human beings to survive in this woeful world is via the smallest groups feasible – familial, tribal, clan and community entities that allow people to decide on their cultures, resource extraction and formulas for living.
The Leviathan that the Vatican seeks must inevitably offer exploitation of the harshest kind, confiscation, forced "norms," comprehensive punishment and ultimately, as we pointed out above, policies that will grow increasingly murderous over time leading inevitably to genocide.
These are history's lessons. Shame on the Pope for ignoring them.
