Chalk one more up for the conspiracy theorists right after Bambi is actually constitutionally eligible to be president, he is NOT a global socialist, and that he actually cares about you and I and our children.
Are you ready for this?
The Sydney Morning Herald (Right on the heels of Henry Kissinger stating the same thing two weeks ago.)
KEVIN RUDD has denounced the unfettered capitalism of the past three decades and called for a new era of “social capitalism” in which government intervention and regulation feature heavily. (emphasis mine)
In an essay to be published next week, the Prime Minister is scathing of the neo-liberals who began refashioning the market system in the 1970s, and ultimately brought about the global financial crisis.
“The time has come, off the back of the current crisis, to proclaim that the great neo-liberal experiment of the past 30 years has failed, that the emperor has no clothes,” he writes of those who placed their faith in the corrective powers of the market.
“Neo-liberalism and the free-market fundamentalism it has produced has been revealed as little more than personal greed dressed up as an economic philosophy. And, ironically, it now falls to social democracy to prevent liberal capitalism from cannibalising itself.”
Mr Rudd writes in The Monthly that just as Franklin Roosevelt rebuilt US capitalism after the Great Depression, modern-day “social democrats” such as himself and the US President, Barack Obama, must do the same again. But he argues that “minor tweakings of long-established orthodoxies will not do” and advocates a new system that reaches beyond the 70-year-old interventionist principles of John Maynard Keynes.
“A system of open markets, unambiguously regulated by an activist state, and one in which the state intervenes to reduce the greater inequalities that competitive markets will inevitably generate,” he writes.
He urges “a new contract for the future that eschews the extremism of both the left and right”.
He mocks neo-liberals “who now find themselves tied in ideological knots in being forced to rely on the state they fundamentally despise to save financial markets from collapse”.
He advocates tighter regulation and policing of global finances, and identifies the immediate challenge as restoring global growth by 3 per cent of gross domestic product, the amount it is expected to fall in 2009. Next week, as Parliament resumes, his Government will chip in with a second economic stimulus package.
Mr Rudd singles out Thatcherism as a culprit, as well as the former Howard government. His essay implicitly attacks the Opposition Leader, Malcolm Turnbull, who this week urged the free market be allowed to dictate commercial property values as he slammed a Government measure to prop them up.
What Mr. Rudd does not realize is that this bubble was caused by the Democrats when they altered the Community Reinvestment Act during Clinton’s administration forcing banks to give loans to people that could not afford them. How is that rampant capitalism?
Yes, digest that for a bit and then tell me that you want to be part of a New World Order where Iran and the U.N. tell Americans what to do…..ah, that’s what I thought…. At this point in civilization’s history, if there is one world order, do not the countries with the “energy” hold the most power?
Do you remember this quote from David Rockefeller in one of my earlier posts?
David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, while he was the Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations said, “This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long – We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.” (1994)
Or this one from Paul Warburg’s (originator of the Federal Reserve and Council on Foreign Relations) son, James Paul Warburg:
We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.
So America, how are you feeling about not being Constitutional Americans anymore? Are you ready to fall in line, roll over, and bow down?
The Monster? Not so much…
(P.S. I would like to welcome Honeywell back to the Monster, and ask them why they are still looking at Birth Certificate Posts? The rest of your corporate friends are looking at the same posts.)
