LETTERS: Globalization and globalism schemes

Definitions of three words every American should memorize: oligarchy – a small group of people having control over a country (and the world); globalization – the process by which businesses or other organizations develop influence or start operating on an international scale; and globalism – the operation of economic and foreign policy on a global scale.

Collectively, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Bilderberg Group (BG), the Trilateral Commission (TC) and the United Nations are an oligarchy. Richard Nixon’s Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, began attending BG meetings in 1957 and to this day remains an influential proponent of the oligarchy.

Before Kissinger’s secret trip to China in July 1971 (during the Vietnam War), Red China was a closed society. Foreigners were not welcome. That visit paved the way for Nixon to begin diplomatic and trade relations with America’s enemy and would eventually be worth trillions to the world’s elites.

Up until the early 1990s, roughly 90 percent of the Chinese people lived in extreme poverty. Some of you may recall the images of streets in China being packed with people on bicycles during the days of “Ping Pong Diplomacy” in the 1970s.

Thanks to the oligarchy’s globalization and globalism schemes, the economies of China and many other countries like Mexico and Vietnam were on the rise while America’s was going in the opposite direction. Is the oligarchy’s goal worldwide Socialism?

With the outbreak of the coronavirus that originated in China and its impact on the global supply chain, the world’s economic markets are falling like rocks. Will the globalization and globalism that generated tremendous wealth for the world’s elites now lead to a worldwide recession or worse, a worldwide depression? Pray not.

On a different note, it seems like the simplest way to stop the spread of the coronavirus would be to quarantine everyone entering any country from another for a specific period of time. But because of the cost and the world’s economies being tied together, that is not likely to happen.
