WHAT’S WRONG WITH GLOBALIZATION?
Brieuc G. from Copenhagen, Denmark writes:
I just watched this 6-part video on YouTube by Johan Norberg. Essentially
its aim is to expose fallacies in the anti-globalization argument. I am not
sure whether you will endorse it or not, but I found it honest and useful. I
would be grateful to hear your opinion (especially if you feel it is in some
Brieuc, 2009 Jan 22
THIS WAS MY REPLY:
Briefly stated, my analysis is that this film is a mixture of truth and
misdirection. Globalization, per se, is neither good nor bad. The real
issue, skipped over by this video, is what KIND of globalization. My concern
with globalization is that the way it is unfolding today is leading into a
global totalitarian system. Theoretically, nationalism could also lead in
the same direction – and, in fact, is doing so in many places. The issue is
not globalization vs. nationalism but what KIND of a world are we heading
into. Will it be one of freedom or one of feudalism?
My analysis of the ant-globalization movement is that it is largely
misdirected. Instead of protesting the growth of government, the protestors
usually demand more government. They want MORE subsidies, more regulations,
more redistribution of wealth, more collectivism. We are being given a false
choice between the anti-globalist useful idiots and the globalist
totalitarians. I think they are basically on the same side. I do not wish to
participate in that losing game.
Thanks for sending this.
DEM BONES CONNECTED TO DA DEBT BONE
Commentary by Robert Singer, 2009 Jan 21
It is an understatement to say we are experiencing an unprecedented
financial crisis along with our world-wide environmental crisis. Neither
crisis needs an Austrian economist to explain it. We live in a consumer
society and consumers “use things up.” In recent history, this useless,
toxic “stuff” comes from China, and this sad state of affairs is so simple
to understand that even a child can follow. Just watch the, “Story of
Stuff,” a web-based documentary about the dark underside of consumption.
Our consumer society didn't just happen, it was planned. Not in the 20th or
21st centuries, but in the 19th century by the Skull and Bones secret
society. Skull and Bones, a branch of the Bavarian Illuminati, was founded
by William Huntington Russell and fellow classmate Alphonso Taft at Yale
University in 1832. (More)
FROM BRAVE NEW WORLD BY ALDOUS HUXLEY:
"A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the
all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers
control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced because they
love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned ... to
ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and school teachers."
READER SAYS VALUE OF HUMAN LIFE IS BASIS OF MORALITY, EVEN IF THERE IS NO
I just received the latest Unfiltered News, and read the
correspondence between a reader and you regarding the source of morality and
'right and wrong'. I too have struggled with this and I have come to the
firm conclusion that all sources of good and evil come from the value placed
on human life. It has always seemed to me that the "if there is no God then
there cannot be good and evil" argument is full of holes. For one example,
if a religious text dictated that the first born should be murdered in the
cradle, would it be right? Of course not. But the reason I can say that it
would not be right is because of the value I place on human life. If we
break down all of the moral values held by libertarians, whether it be
freedom of speech, freedom to own property, and freedom of choice among
products, the core similarity is the value placed on the human life, and the
dignity granted to each living being because they are human. If we value
life over death, freedom over slavery, sound money and low taxes over a
welfare state, we are doing so, not because God exists or not, but because
we hold human life as the standard of all values. Murder of an innocent
person is murder, regardless of whether God exists. Why is it wrong? Because
the innocent person's life was taken from him/her, because of the value
implicitly placed on life. Governments are no exception, murder on a mass
scale is still murder, even if everyone calls it 'war'. I firmly reject the
notion that 'might makes right', and that the perpetrators should still be
held accountable by fellow human beings, who are capable of understanding
the morality behind the value of human life.
Thank you for listening to my humble reply.
-Sincerely, Shane Smith, 2009 Jan 18
4 ISRAELI DEATHS, NOT 13, DUE TO HAMAS ROCKETS. AND COULD THOSE ROCKETS
Your link [in the Jan 16 issue] to the BBC News article on Gaza deaths and
injuries wrongly states that 13 Israelis have been killed by Hamas rockets.
Actually, 9 of those deaths were from combat in Gaza. Only 4 Israeli deaths
are allegedly from Hamas rockets.
I say allegedly only because I'm not convinced that Hamas is firing the
rockets. Same for the recent rockets fired from Lebanon, where the media
claims it's Hezbollah. In fact, the Lebanese cabinet member representing
Hezbollah has denied that they were responsible for those rockets.
The rockets fired from Gaza and Lebanon could be Mossad's way of developing
and maintaining the phony pretext Israel needed.

MULTINATIONAL INTERVENTION IS NOT THE SOLUTION TO THE ISRAEL - PALESTINE
from Alan Brockway, 2009 Jan 16
For many, the Israel-Arab conflict is so emotionally charged that some
pro-sovereignty laymen are silently suggesting a form of global response due
to the sad images on television. I have no doubt that the "live and let
live" policy many of us try to adhere to is difficult to stomach when one
sovereign body chooses to not let another live, yet going so far as to
suggest an international police action is not going to gain my support - and
I believe we can help reframe the issue away from a globalist solution.
Eliminating all foreign support (aka- taxpayer rape) is much better to focus
upon than, as some in the liberty community are calling for, a globalist /
multinational / empirical response to such an emotive issue.
I suggest, when you hear your liberty minded buddies fired up about the Gaza
fighting (be it for one side or the other), be sure to help them adjust the
perspective towards non-governmental intervention, cleaning our own house,
and eliminating foreign aid Remind them that this likely contrived issue has
great potential to further supranational initiatives. If they're impassioned
about this incident, encourage them to become personally involved through a
private foundation or volunteer effort.
It is my opinion that pro globalists will use the Israeli / Paletinian
conflict to emotionally charge everyone from the deeply religious to the
staunch atheists. We should be mindful of efforts to recruit our minds into
supranational initiatives through our soft hearts.

think it honorable that you would allow a thread like that to appear on the

WHAT ABOUT THAT RUSSIAN PROFESSOR WHO HAS PREDICTED THE BREAKUP OF THE
I was just wondering what your thoughts were concerning a short You Tube
video I just watched reporting from CNN news, that a Russian professor is
predicting the U.S. will disintegrate by the year 2010! He contends that
America will split up into regions where certain states will group together
independently, thus doing away with the U.S. as we know it. Your comments
would be appreciated.
Mary S., 2009 Jan 15
We have passed over this story because we do not have confidence in the
source. Pravda always has been the propaganda arm of the Russian
collectivist government. The story line is fairly plausible, and there may
be some truth to it, but Unfiltered News does not want to become an
unwitting dupe in the battle between Russian collectivists and American
collectivists. Thanks for asking.
HEALTH-FREEDOM ADVOCATE SAYS MOVEMENT IS INFILTRATED BY TWO AGENTS
SECRETLY WORKING AGAINST HEALTH FREEDOM
From John Hammell, President of International Advocates for Health Freedom,
Jan 15, 2009
As the first person in the world to ever call attention to the Codex
International threat to health freedom (via an article in Life Extension
Magazine in 1996) I speak with authority when I say that the (so called)
Natural Solutions Foundation is not trusted or respected by any LEGITIMATE
health freedom organization in the world including IAHF, NHF, ANH, AAHF,
Mayday, La Leva di Archimede, Health Freedom Australia, The New Zealand
Health Trust,The Dr.Rath Health Foundation, Well TV and others.
NSF is a controlled opposition group that is misdirecting the grass roots on
the Codex issue. They would have people believe you can stop Codex AT Codex.
You cannot! We have no influence over unelected bureaucrats from the world's
FDAs at UN Codex meetings and never will. Everything that occurs at those
meetings is decided before the meeting even takes place.
The only chance we have of stopping Codex (and the thing NSF never talks
about) is by stopping regional harmonization through which the USA is being
dismantled and forced into a North American Union Dictatorship modeled after
the EU, which is a Dictatorship.
If NSF were for real, they'd be urging the grass roots to push for
Congressional oversight on FDA's Trilateral Cooperation Charter with Canada
and Mexico via which FDA is harmonizing the food and drug regs of all 3
countries as if a North American Union were already in existence. See

BY WHAT AUTHORITY CAN WE CLAIM WE ARE RIGHT AND THOSE PROMOTING THE NEW
WORLD ORDER ARE WRONG?
This question came to us from a subscriber who is struggling with the
question: If religion must not be the authority for government, then what
should be? He writes:
“The Declaration of Independence states that in respect to the
opinions of mankind, we must give a reason that impels us to separation. I
understand our movement is focused on freedom, but where is the
justification for it? I agree whole-heartedly that the Constitution makes no
mention of God, and in my opinion, rightly so. We do not want to offer
freedom and then force someone into a paradigm of beliefs.
“However, if our freedom movement is to fight for freedom, on what
justification are we doing it, or in other words, why would the NWO be wrong
in clearing the earth of 90% of the population? For the sake of argument,
let's suppose there is no God, the atheist was right all along, and
evolution is true. On what authority can we justify that our desire for
freedom is right and the NWO desire for our enslavement is wrong?
“The 10 Commandments for the NWO posted on the Georgia Guidestones hold
evolutionary and atheistic values that clearly show that the world's
population needs a 90-95% decrease. What makes that wrong? I know it's
wrong, because I can say there is a Creator who grants rights, and the NWO
has no authority over the Creator to take them away.
“I'm asking the movement to please explain to me how we justify that the NWO
would not be saving the planet and resources by getting rid of all the
'inferior species'? Without using God as our answer, on what authority do we
justify that our desire for freedom is right and the NWO desire for our
enslavement is wrong? If this movement cannot justify that its basis for
freedom is right over the NWO, why are we doing it? We need to state a
reason that impels us to separation.
Christopher J., 2009 Jan 13
REPLY FROM GEG:
Regrettably, I must be very brief, but the essence of my thought on this is
very simple. It really makes no difference what authority we choose. We can
write proclamations all day long and claim God’s word or logic or philosophy
as our authority, but they mean nothing unless we are able to back our
proclamations with physical force. Those with the winning armies choose
whatever authority they wish.
It wasn’t philosophy or the recognition of a Creator expressed in the
Declaration of Independence that carried the day. It was the Continental
Army. Those who win on the battlefield always determine the laws and can use
any authority or justification they wish. Therefore, those of us who believe
in freedom cite the philosophy expressed in The Creed of Freedom, and
that’s quite sufficient, provided we can rely on the power of government to
enforce it. But remember, that power is greatly restricted by the Creed
itself. It is limited to the defense of life, liberty, and property. Without
that limited power, however, we have no enforceable rights. That’s why the
motto of Freedom Force is: “Those without power cannot defend freedom.”
For additional thoughts on this issue,
Being informed is not enough.

GENERATION RX; Children As Victims of Anti-Depressant Drugs

aggression and suicides. Millions of young people have been falsely

memoirs of how they pretended to be preserving law and order while actually
carrying out a military operation to crush the tiny nation, all in the name
of peace. We have not seen the last of U.N.
so-called peace-keeping forces. Unless the further development of what is
called the New World Order can be stopped, we are going to see a U.N. army

UNSTOPPABLE GLOBAL WARMING (EVERY 1500 YEARS)
This New York Times Best Seller is a data mine of scientific facts showing
that global warming is not caused by human activity but by solar activity
and cosmic radiation – and the cycle has been occurring for millions of
years. The recent rise in temperature has created the most ideal climate for
civilization that Earth has ever experienced. The next cycle will be colder
and much less beneficial for mankind.
GREAT GLOBAL WARMING SWINDLE
First broadcast over Great Britain’s public service TV station, this
documentary deconstructs the myth that Global Warming is caused by human
activity. World-class scientists explain that it is caused by solar
activity, and that similar cycles have occurred many times in history. Solar
activity recently was high, so higher temperatures are the expected result.
In previous years, when industrialization was increasing at its greatest
rate, temperatures went down. (More)

science of harnessing gravity should have this book for the sheer enjoyment
of the unfolding story and as a serious reference volume.

DECEPTION WAS MY JOB
The Testimony of Yuri Bezmenov, KGB Propagandist
Bezmenov, the son of a high-ranking Soviet officer, was a member of the
elite propaganda arm of the KGB, known as the Novasti Press Agency. One of
his assignments was to accompany journalists visiting the Soviet Union to
make sure they did not discover the truth about Soviet life. After becoming
disillusioned with the oppressive system, he escaped to the West at great
risk to his life. In this interview, conducted by G. Edward Griffin, Mr.
Bezmenov tells how the Soviets used propaganda against their own citizens;
how he hoodwinked American journalists into publishing Soviet propaganda,
how slave laborers are concealed from foreign visitors, and how he escaped
to the West posing as an American hippie. Includes many photographs brought
with him on microfilm at the time of his escape.

The Persecution of Falun Gong
The Testimony of Charles Lee
Charles Lee is one of the few political prisoners held in Chinese prisons
who has survived to tell about it. After receiving a medical degree in
China, he came to the U.S. in 1991 for graduate study and soon thereafter
became an American citizen. In 2003 he returned to China to proclaim the
truth about government persecution of Falun Gong, a non-violent, spiritual
movement dedicated to “Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance”. He was
arrested and sentenced to 3 years in prison where he was beaten, force-fed,
and tortured, which he describes in gruesome detail in this video interview
by G. Edward Griffin. On January 21, 2006, Charles was released and returned
to San Francisco. Now he is a leader in the movement that has motivated
millions of members of the Chinese Communist Party to resign. (More)
