Should We Let The Globalists Win?

If, somehow, Russia is defeated, the global currency is rolled out, climate credits are institutionalized, and so forth, would that be so bad?

Of course, Alex Jones used to talk about all the ways this could be a nightmare.  Computer chips implanted in our skin, ubiquitous surveillance, brainwashing media, designer plagues to wipe out undesirables.  But how realistic is it to think that will all work together?  Aren’t the expediencies of running a global state a bit prohibitive?  North Korea, the USSR, and Nazi Germany were all founded in part thanks to the anvil effect of a plausible outside threat.  Would a global government have such an excuse?  I suppose that’s the role of false flag terrorism.  Nevertheless, how well can the economy perform under these circumstances?  And if the economy doesn’t do well, how long can a semi centralized global world order last?

Maybe natural forces would lead a world without independent antagonistic powers towards inevitable liberty.  The NWO would’t be able to thwart irresistible economic forces.  Maybe they’d benefit from them.  Maybe liberty could help everyone, in the end.

So is fighting the NWO from coming into being the right approach, or should we develop libertarian systems that can work within that context, to help nudge it more quickly in the right direction?

Zachary Sorenson worked for the United States Air Force for six years as a Navigation Officer. He recently quit because of a principled opposition to war. He considers himself to be a Libertarian, and studied Economics at the University of Maryland, College Park.

    • This guy gets it. All I meant was that libertarians should plan with confidence, and not desperation. Alex Jones sells desperation to the revanchist crowd, and things can appear quite desperate, and indeed be desperate for an afflicted generation. But liberty requires confidence and prescience. Desperation is the enemy of liberty.
