This link from my friend Brian. The president of a United Nations watchdog organization has slammed recent proposals by a globalist body calling for the establishment of a universal taxation system and a worldwide media corporation as Orwellian. Last month world leaders attended the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, which is "committed to improving the state of the world by engaging leaders in partnerships to shape global, regional and industry agendas". Despite not being an official government body, the guest list included many prominent politicians such as British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. WEF also partners with many influential groups such as Fox's News Corporation, CNBC and Forbes. Although media attention was focused primarily on the financial crisis that is presently engulfing the world, the WEF looked at a wide range of topics, including global governance, the Middle East and the role of religion in shaping the New World Order. At the conclusion of the summit the WEF published a working document called 'Global Agenda 2009', outlining a large number of areas where council members felt action must be taken in order to resolve certain issues and ease the process of globalisation. The WEF does not make any efforts to conceal their globalist ideologies. And in one of their many recommendations, the Council propose that a universal television network be created that would " eliminate the barriers" that separate the nations and bring about the establishment of a "new global community" that will be able to speak with a "global voice". Their words, not mine. The council also claims that there are now calls for "global governance as a response to the global financial crisis", and that the media must play a proactive role in bringing this about.
Quote: "A new value proposition for journalism and its mission in society. The Council is championing a new global, independent news and information service whose role is to inform, educate and improve the state of the world – one that would take advantage of all platforms of content delivery from mobile to satellite and online to create a new global network. It could bring together journalists and citizens, aggregating content to create new communities of interest that cross the boundaries already crossed by companies and NGOs and that eliminate the barriers that so often frustrate truly global responses. And how do we advance the proposals of the Network of Global Agenda Councils if not through an ambitious act of journalism itself? It will take innovative public-private funding to provide that global voice, one that can both generate content and imagine a new global community in which people can share, participate and disagree, with a focus on mission rather than the bottom line. That voice, and the content it creates, will act as a focus for providing education, campaigning for access and championing empowerment. If we are going to create a global voice, we need to empower it by removing the restrictions on story-telling. To do that, businesses, governments and institutions need to embrace both transparency and a readiness to be open to information provision. Why is something new required in a world seemingly awash with information? In a world where there are calls for global governance as a response to a global financial crisis, where scientific research, capital flows and production chains are globalized, the media and the communities in which we imagine ourselves remain fiercely localized. Even the media voices we think of as international come from London, Qatar or Atlanta. Via the World Economic Forum committed to improving the state of the world, the agenda that will deliver those improvements needs a genuine, global voice that shares that fundamental commitment. The Forum was created to bring a space for international debate and cooperation where global stakeholders could talk about global issues. In a world facing global problems but with little to match in global governance, its foundation was an act of imagination. Communicating a global agenda, and motivating and mobilizing people to support it, requires an initiative of global imagination, and why shouldn’t such an initiative come from the World Economic Forum and its Members?
As Cliff Kincaid states in his article, this is not journalism, it is propaganda. Journalism is when you report the facts without bias towards one side or another. News becomes propaganda when an idea or opinion that you want to convey is added into the mix, or when you suppress facts that would appear detrimental to your cause. In this case "global governance" is the goal, and "communicating a global agenda" through the media is the means of bringing it about. Of course there is nothing intrinsically evil about the idea of global governance. It could be that some of these people have no greater ambition than making the world a better place to live in. Some believe that a devilish plot is being hatched by the global elite in order to bring us into a New World Order. That is possible too, but I prefer to stick to what I personally know to be true. The fact is, God still rules in the kingdom of men (Daniel 4:17). On one occasion God gave all the kingdoms of the world into the hands of an evil dictator called Nebuchadnezzar, and He did so in order that His will might be accomplished.
The Bible states that during the tribulation period, a one world government will be set up. It will be headed by an evil dictator called the man of sin (2nd Thessalonians 2:3). Satan will give him his seat and great authority (Revelation 13:2), and he will be given a 'global voice' speaking great blasphemies (Revelation 13:5). But rather than resolving global issues, the problems will continue to grow worse, and believers in the one true God will become the scapegoat. And thus will commence the period of time called the great tribulation. All this will happen in the permissive will of God. But when the King of Kings returns, all the kingdoms of the world will be destroyed (Daniel 2:44-45), "And of the increase of His government and of peace, there shall be no end", Isaiah 9:7. So while we know all these things must come to pass, we can still have hope.
Do you have hope for the future? Do you belong to the kingdom of God? Jesus Christ declares that only those who are born again of God's Holy Spirit shall enter His kingdom (John 3:3). Jesus Christ gave His life upon the cross so that your sins could be forgiven and you could live in His kingdom (John 3:16). Turn away from your sins and trust in Him for salvation today.
