Gorbachev Calls for "Central Soviet" To Run Global Economy

If anyone had ever any questions about the validity of what we have published regarding the New World Order, the excerpts of the following article recently published in The Wanderer [1] should dispel any and all doubts.

On September 21, 2000, Paul Likoudis writes in The Wanderer...

NEW YORK - Former Soviet Communist Party boss Mikhail Gorbachev, founder of the State of the World Forum six years ago, used a $5,000 per person gathering of the world's political and business elite to plea for the United Nations to adopt a Soviet-style "central authority" to manage the world's business and environmental concerns.

Speaking at the New York Hilton and Towers on "the state of the world" one day before the world's political leaders took to the podium to deliver five-minute speeches calling for a stronger UN with tax-gathering capabilities and an international police force to act as a global cop, the Soviet leader who oversaw perestroika and the dismantling of the Soviet system in Eastern Europe complained that "globalization" has only benefited rich nations at the expense of the poor.

Gorbachev made a similar appeal in 1992, before the institution of such powerful agencies as NAFTA, GATT, and the WTO, the Maastricht Treaty, and the Asia-Pacific Economic Community Agreement, which are now the de facto tools for implementing his current proposal.

"Globalization has been privatized," he said on September 5. "It has been Westernized and Americanized."

He objected that "transnational corporations" hold monopolies on patents and all new technologies, and the benefits they generate rarely trickle down to the poor. Thus, he said, the United Nations must establish a Soviet-like authority that would direct international economics and the environment.

Gorbachev's well-received speech represents the coming of age for the United Nations, and a culmination of the Soviet Union's patient efforts (and faith in long-term planning) over the past 65 years, ever since Stalin proposed a three-stage process for achieving world government at the 1936 Comintern meeting in Moscow:

[A] socialize the world's governments;
[B] bring about regional unions of various groupings of these socialized nations; and
[C] amalgamate these regional groupings, (such as the European Union) into a final worldwide union of socialist states.

Further down in The Wanderer's article we read...
Gorbachev's call for a "central authority" was seconded by multi, multibillionaire financier George Soros, who made his fortune as a currency speculator.

Reflecting on the anti-World Trade Organization riots in Seattle last fall, Soros described rioters - and the U.S. Congress - as "dangers to international institutions."

We read further...
A Conservative News Service (CNS) report on the conference said the ultimate aim of the agenda is to limit the power and privileges of the world's wealthier countries, such as the United States, through a global taxing system, an international court, and the elimination of permanent member status and veto authority in the Security Council.

Henry Lamb, executive vice president of the Environmental Conservative Organization and a member of the nonprofit Sovereignty International agency, described the agenda as "frightening."

"It is one of the last means of control that the U.S. has over the UN.

"When you combine that recommendation with the global taxing proposals . . . and international criminal courts," he continued, "we see the UN is posturing itself to have not only the authority but the means to implement and enforce national policy."
