This article in Huffington Post uses the term “new world order” in a novel (and optimistic) sense. Jeremiah has been warning that America will lose our dominance in international finance, and now it is happening. Punitive fines, sanctions, and currency wars are driving the world out of our currency zone.
A multi-polar financial world with new international financial centres emerging in Mumbai and Shanghai will be a more stable world.
The term “new world order” is generally used to describe a conspiracy, in which an international elite aims to create “one world government” with themselves at top. See here, for example. The new world order described by Dr. Saidi is actually the antidote for one world government. Such are the pitfalls of using labels.
So, what about the new world order of one world government? Does that sound like a good idea to you? As always, we approach the theory by assuming that it is rational – and not a conspiracy.
We already have a raft of supranational institutions like the IMF, the WTO, and the UN. The European Union aims to “transcend” the national governments of Europe, and already controls their currency. The leaders of these institutions may reasonably believe they’re doing the world some good. It’s human nature to believe that your outfit ought to have more funding, and more power.
Globalists, like George Soros and his various think tanks, believe that national governments are obsolete. They deny wanting a world government, but they want every issue – from welfare to monetary policy – handled by a global body.
Insofar as there are collective interests that transcend state boundaries, the sovereignty of states must be subordinated to international law and international institutions.
This amounts to world government, for all practical purposes. It promises an end to war, poverty, pollution, etc. People with this much faith in government are statists, by definition, and they believe in utopia.
Jeremiah does not have that kind of faith. He believes that the more power and personnel a government has – any government – the more despotic it will be. World government, therefore, would be a giant prison with no hope of escape, like The Hunger Games.
With globalism, as with socialism, we don’t want to get hung up on the label. We want to look at specific policies. For example, Soros and his crew want the IMF to issue the world’s reserve currency. This is obviously the enemy of human liberty. Just look at what happened to Greece, with the Euro.
This brings us back to Dr. Saidi and his multi-polar world order. We can no longer hope for the dollar to retain its reserve status. Failing that, we would rather have competing national currencies than a “new world currency” controlled by the IMF.
