Return of the City-State

Is this what the ‘globalized’ world will look like? Many thousands of separate and distinct megalopoli or city-states all operating under the same laws and all governed by a global parliament. Will there be a place for nationhood? How will people be made to abandon their flags and their armies? Have we come this far only to regress?

“Members of the [Strong Cities] network will join in the network’s first annual summit in Paris in spring 2016. The network will be led by a steering committee of about 25 cities and regions, and will be run by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, described in the press release as a “leading international ‘think-and-do’ tank” that fights violent extremism.”

Of course cities co-operate in many ways, and have for a long time, but for an organization of corporate cities to do away with the executive is still treason, and a coup d’état, whether it is to the cause of global terror or not.

It’s as though the middle class (the national executive) in world government were also being excised. Left behind are the regional elected, and the international un-elected. It’s like getting rid of Hoffa. In this way, it is turning a strong nation of [insert population here] into a set of much weaker individual cities [divide by 10 to 1000] in order to have more influence over each. It’s what every corporation has wanted to do with every trade union ever formed, and will now get their chance to do it. Off with their heads!

Combine this with the power which the UN already exercises over climate treaties, food production, medical intervention, land rights, disaster relief, etc. and we no longer need imagine a ‘New World Order’ or an ‘International Order,’ it is already upon us.

It seems that the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau wants to cross the rubicon. He was working on something else right before he was elected ‘Minister Prime.’ (The homepage has since been changed to this.)

“The Campaign for the Establishment of a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly is a global network of parliamentarians and non-governmental organizations advocating for citizens’ representation at the United Nations.

A United Nations Parliamentary Assembly (UNPA) would be the first parliamentary body directly representing the world’s citizens in the United Nations. It is envisaged as first practical step towards the long-term goal of a world parliament.

Wouldn’t this put the Prime Minister out of a job? And what does the Queen think about all of this?

It would seem that Mr. Trudeau (true to his father’s image) wants to play with the big boys. What’s he gonna’ hafta’ do and who’s he gonna’ hafta’… Nah, he’ll prolly get a free pass. You see, Pierre Elliot Trudeau (Justin’s father) was the man who privatized money creation in Canada. He ushered in the era of private central banking and huge national debt. The Canadian national debt when he took office (April 20, 1968) was $14B. When he left office (June 30, 1984,) it had reached $130B. That’s a factor of nine within sixteen years. At that rate, the debt would have been over $11T by 2016. <sarc>Thankfully, it’s only $613B now.</sarc> No wonder his son, as a liberal, likes to spend, spend, spend.

Each and every denuded cities’ largest export will be its own management. Will there be a global currency at that point, or will that be moot, as well? If it smells like feudalism…
