Globalization or Poison Pills?

I am a “baby-boomer”. I grew up an America that lived in fear of global nuclear disaster. Most of my young life was consumed with issues of the Cold War, the aftermath of World War II, and the growing shadow of Socialism and Communism upon the face of the earth. At the same time, up until the Vietnam Era, I, like most of my fellow Americans, lived in a world that we thought was very special, so special that it actually seemed that it was shielded from the evil forces of the world. We had leaders who cared; who had our best interest in mind. All of that began to change in the 60’s and the change continued right up to present day. I am a “baby-boomer” and I now live in an America that is very frightening to me.


There are those who point back into our history and cite that America became great because it was a haven for the down trodden, the persecuted, the needy. America stood on its shores and said, “Give us your sick, your hungry, your oppressed.” Those people came to America and eventually participated in making this country a great nation and a world power. So, if that is the case, what do we have to fear from mass immigration today whether it is illegal or not? If it made us strong in the past surely we can only become a stronger country if we open our doors and open our arms to the world. Well, it all sounds heart-warming, but if you buy that, then welcome to the world of false analogy.


Mass immigration into our society is toxic, even from a legal perspective, in this day and age. There is good reasoning behind that statement in that immigration introduced into our current politically correct society tends to simply dilute the mixture to the point that it has no purpose or direction. Today, in America, there is no impetus to “become an American” and therein lies a danger. Today, we teach the appreciation of cultural diversity in our schools; we preach it in our industries, especially in America, as part of the human relations training. Our society and our governments, for that matter, promote pride in cultural values and in holding on to cultural tradition. We no longer herd people toward the English Language but instead encourage others to learn their language as a way of reaching out. In this process, we are simply turning America into a land of micro-cultures who feed on themselves and embrace little or nothing that is traditionally “American” in flavor or culture.


Ultimately, we erode our ability to form a consensus in this country. We forfeit our rights on the basis of our inability to take a common direction or goal. It is an extremely delicate and dangerous condition in our country in this day and time. Yet our leaders fail miserably in any attempt to address the issue because they value the voting power of these individual blocks that have formed in our culture. Regardless of anything else going on in the world, this issue, left unchecked, will be the undoing of America in terms of the democratic process. It is happening right before our eyes.


Our environment is being used a platform on which to justify the “globalization” of America. There has been no impetus for America to want to join other countries in the world in pursuit of socialistic functionality. We have stood alone and stood by our democratic principles on which we were founded. There are those who wish to rid the earth of such thinking and America is a great place to do it. Those who pursue this goal hid behind the good-will and warm feelings of noble causes.


What could be more noble than wanting to save the environment so that those who follow us on this planet can enjoy the quality of life here? Everyone would want to align behind such a worthy cause. Unfortunately, that is not the point. The environment because the platform upon which the argument is built that America is a bad place; that we are polluters; that Americans are single-handedly destroying the global environment. If those arguments can be sold to enough Americans, and believe me, more are buying into it everyday, the case can soon be made that America is incapable of policing itself in these matters. The only viable alternative will be for America to subscribe to global regulation in order to protect the environment for all. This will be the insidious path through which those who want to destroy us will enter. No shots will be fired. No alerts will be sounded, but the process will have started.


Much the same argument can be made in terms of America’s financial well-being. If our borders can be filled with enough immigrants who live off the dole of the American taxpayer, the financial pressures will be overpowering. Medical programs that offer hand-outs to all will only be the start of the social welfare state in the decline of America. The attacks on the financial institutions will continue. This is an industry that has basically been set up for failure through schemes that follow back through the Carter years. Subsidized housing programs, government guaranteed loan programs, inducements to grow the housing industry to offer literally a chicken in every pot has finally brought enough pressure to bear on this industry that basically blew the doors off the safe and allowed money to bleed out in all directions and eventually tumble the financial markets in America.


Now that the damage has been done, where are those in government willing to step forward and shoulder the blame that the government is due in creating such a disaster? There are none. But there are plenty who will step forward and use this situation to argue that America’s financial institutions are out of control and thus must come under a more effective scrutiny, one that “global” in nature and protects all the people of the world. Too many Americans are too quick to agree and here is yet another hole in the fabric of America through which the snakes of the world slither in and begin to cure their slimy business. No shots fires. No alarms sounded.


Country after country in the world begins to tumble to the pressure of financial strife and mismanagement. The argument quickly comes to the table that America, with all her impact on the world, is much to blame. Our “own” financial crisis has played heavily on the world stage in dragging down the economics of the rest of the world and causing further financial ruin. The International Monetary Fund must step in and bail out good countries like Greece with financial aid. Since America is so strong, it is only fitting that much of the financial burden of this bail out be borne by the American taxpayer. Thus, our financial crisis grows into one of international proportion which ultimately places even more pressure the American system. Repeated incidents only add to the probable failure of the American government. And now we have another tear in the fabric of America.


I think you get the picture. As the dominos are stacked higher and higher, the pressure, the rationalization, and the argument for a world government begins to make more sense to more and more people who make up America and the world. In fact, these situations discussed above will reach levels that will dictate a state of emergency in the world. No longer will there be an opportunity for choice as to our direction and future. There will be but one way the world can be saved….Globalization.


Give that some thought as an American citizen. Is that what you want for your descendants? Do you really believe that will produce a better world for them to live in? A more productive one that offers a quality of live or one that only serves to place the people of the world into a yoke of socialistic existence that will provide little or no opportunity unless you are of those considered to be of the elite class.


The next time you hear the word “Globalization”, I hope you will give it some thought and give some level of credence to the idea that maybe a move in that direction is not necessarily a healthy one for America nor is it a coincidence.

Thanks, outdoorsguy. Its a shame nowadays but nothing is as it seems and too often something sinister lies behind the most innocent front. We have to be careful as a public. Thanks for stopping by! WB

I agree with your premise that Globalization is the goal of the worlds Richest families many of whom control the worlds biggest banks I can't see how we can prevent globalization altogether.Our economies are already intertwined to a great extent.If,we are to extricate ourselves from outside control over our lives we must have the wherewithall financially to do that.The banking system needs to be changed.It,should be controlled by the people or congress as it was intended.We can no longer let the federal central banks have control.We have seen too many times where they simply let the economy fall.Yet they were given control back in 1913 on the premise that they would stablize the economy.

If,there is globalization it should be of each ountries own free will,rather than forced due to a few individuals control over the worlds economy.I'm all for a peacful world based on each individual country wanting peace for peace sake.Without a central authority that has control over everything that goes on in each country state,city,town etc.

someonewhoknows...your points are well-taken and well-made. I have difficulty imagining a world which could be controlled under the auspices of a central government...that is beyond my mental scope. I think there are those power hungry types out there who believe that the parts they want of it can be manipulated to their benefit under the guise of other issues such as banking, environment, etc. Within that process I think lies the danger for the USA in that we have significant surface area in world organizations such as the UN and the IMF and thus pressure to conform and yield. I also feel there are some major stumbling blocks one of which lies with the giant, China. I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment. Please stop by again! WB

Wayne,we are moving into a World Order, it's been planned by the elite of the elite and the common American citizen is being manipulated and blindsided. Don't think for a minute that their are not evil forces at work behind the scenes conjuring up what they call Globalization when in fact it's A New World Order. They are moving in ever so slippery, like a snake in high grass hiding and waiting to pounce at the right moment. I am in total agreement with you here brother, it's a scary world that not only baby boomers have moved into, but that of our youth as well, what kind of torch are they going to carry to light the world, they may just become slaves to the New World Order.I pray that someone other than an Anti Christ steps up to the plate to save the world. But don't count on the Rothchilds being our saviors. Good hub, much appreciate your spin on GLOBALIZATION.

Globalization, One World, whatever they call it, I think 'United Nations'. And how has that worked out?

Many have immigrated to this great country, myself being one of them. The difference is that back in the day there were rules. We didn't just barge in and expect favors, things were done legally no matter how difficult. Most who came here from Europe, studied hard to become a citizen, didn't break any laws, learned the language, were too proud to accept any handouts. In the end they became proud to be an American, after all this was the country which gave them freedom to persue happiness, capitalism, and education. That was then, now most old timers, like my parents, see the change that is promised, and fear of the times that resembles the one they were so desperatly fleeing from.

Thanks for a brilliant look at immigration and globalization. I think this piece should be required reading before it is too late and it becomes our reality.

Agreed! Globalization is bad, bad news! In point of fact, our current economic troubles are largely because of this trend--the "outsourcing" of jobs to oversesas markets, all in the interest of corporate greed to make a few extra pennies or dollars. We don't manufacture anything of significance in this country anymore.

The printing of ballots in several languages--no other country would accomodate an American relinquishing their citizenship in that way--it would be, "If you want to be a citizen of our country, LEARN OUR LANGUAGE, or forget it!"

America must follow that concept, instead of this blind catering to every whim in the name of being "politically correct." Screw "politically correct!" It is killing our nation.

The minorities, (and former minorities) seem to mistake equal rights for special privileges.

We will fall...we will be taken over. But most likely by immigrants (legal or otherwise) who enter our country, and proceed to breed like rabbits. It will be an internal, bloodless takeover by virtue of population and culture shift. Those with the greatest numbers win.

Rome took 2000 years to fall: we will be the fastest rise and fall of a superpower in history.

Sorry DML...been on vacation. You are exactly right. Even down at the paint store, they will tell you that you can only put so much pigment in a bucket of paint. I hope everyone who really wants to be an "American" does want to come to America. But if you have no desire to be an "American" then stay the hell out. We don't need the problem. We have to think with our brain...afterall God gave them to us and not our heart on many of these issues. Compassion is a wonderful thing until it destroys a society then it is only recognized as stupidity. Thanks for the read! WB

I agree with WB. I would like to add that Globalization or One World Government (OWG) is pure EVIL. And this is not a dramatization statement. Think of the people who is behind the so-called Globalization or OWG. Do I need to say more to prove my point? Dont they control all major banks worldwide? Arent they the ones that control IMF, UN and other "peace loving" or "financial aid" institutions? Look at what they have done at the world. Look at how wars start, examine wars started and "controlled" or "effort to save people" in Africa!!!

Anyways, the point I am trying to make is that PEOPLE have VERY BIG POWER IN THEIR HANDS, ONLY THEY DO NOT KNOW IT...think about it, who makes your senators or presidents to what they are? Its us through our voting and our other decision making....WE HAVE THE POWER TO ACT AND IF WE ACT T O G E T H E R WE HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR. All people want today all around the world is to live a quit life, with no troubles and with an income just enough to support their families, their children's education and to be able to satisfy theit basic needs of shelter etc. We do not want to be rich, have millions in the banks, possess luxury cruising boats, expeensive cars etc. All we need is peace and loving for each other because there is no greater satisfaction than loving your family and neighbor and the rest of world all together. Our enemy is not our neighbors but OTHERS....
