In a speech to the NZIIA Major Economic & Foreign Policy Issues Seminar, NZ Green MP Kennedy Graham said,
We do not see the world as being composed primarily of an international community of sovereign nation-states.
Rather we see one planet, whose beauty and bounty is shared by humanity with other species.
The speech talks of the UN in glowing terms:
Global Community: A world in which societies respect the cultural beliefs of others, embracing the common global values identified by the UN
He called for people to get behind UN programmes that will have huge effects on everyone’s lives:
The Green Party calls for humanity’s Ecological Footprint to be of a sustainable size by 2030. This will require collaborative support through the UN, building from the pioneering initiative of UNDP with the Human Development Index that began two decades ago, expanding that to embrace the current work of IUCN, WWF and the Global Footprint Network
He called for global governance infrastructure to be built up:
The effective resolution of these problems requires a restructuring of our institutional architecture – through far-reaching reform of the UN and Bretton Woods system.
This is just the sort of talk the NZIIA likes to hear, since the NZIIA (New Zealand Institute for International Affairs) is a branch of the RIIA (Royal Institute for International Affairs), and the United Nations is a project of that group.
The United Nations likes to promote war. For example, “UN general assembly backs resolution on Syria”:
The UN general assembly has overwhelmingly denounced Syria’s crackdown and demanded the securing of its chemical and biological weapons.
Voting was 133 in favour, with 12 against and 31 abstentions.
The resolution says “the first step in the cessation of violence has to be made by the Syrian authorities”.
How is this promoting war? The Free Syrian Army, who are painted as fighting for freedom against the tyrannical Syrian authorities, were funded and armed by NATO, so when the UN calls the Syrian authorities the aggressor, this is a deception for the purpose of war promotion. They’re drumming up support for “humanitarian intervention” (i.e. military invasion).
And… the people who speak for the Free Syrian Army in the media turn out to be working for the Council on Foreign Relations – another group connected with the RIIA!
Oh what a tangled web we weave.
Is it really wise to entrust a warmongering bureaucracy called the UN with vast global legislative power? Is that really the solution to our environmental problems?
The UN certainly thinks so. If you keep your eyes open, you’ll see UN promotion creeping in everywhere – your local library, city council, schools, children’s magazines, etc. And it’s your money they’re spending to promote it.
