The review below summarizes the message in "Terror and Consent" -- a book highly praised by Tony Blair, Henry Kissinger and other globalist leaders. The author, Philip Bobbitt, bases his argument on this statement: "During the era of twentieth century industrial nation states... 80 percent of the dead and wounded in warfare were civilians."

       He fails to remind readers that most of the killing was caused by Nazi or Communist  cruelty and aggression. Instead he uses that horrendous "crisis" to justify the rejection of the constitutional nation-state! Wouldn't it be better to resist Communism (it didn't die), Communitarianism and terrorism -- and to preserve our constitutional freedoms? See Totalitarianism


Global Management.  'Terror and Consent': (Book review) "For Philip Bobbitt, a distinguished lecturer and senior fellow at the University of Texas and a law professor at Columbia University, this [the sentence above] is more than a gee-whiz factoid. It's the basis upon which he advances an ambitious argument for fighting the wars that are bound to plague the 21st century. ... What does it say about the nation state...? Might it be time for something new?

      "The best way to protect citizens of modern democracies, [Bobbitt] claims, is to fundamentally rethink the nation state as the guarantor of the freedoms that terrorists intend to obliterate. ... If 'we want to defeat state-shattering terror in the twenty-first century,' Bobbitt writes, we will have to 'transform the emerging constitutional order of the twenty-first century State.' Specifically, we must stop thinking like a nation state and start thinking like the 'market state' that we are inevitably becoming. ... What's needed is a constitutional order that takes its structural cues from multinational corporations and nongovernmental organizations, relying 'less on law and regulation and more on market incentives' to expand people's options. Such a market state keeps its finger on the pulse of consumer demand, advocates trade liberalization, is prone to the privatization of public works and 'will outsource many functions.' ...

      "...if we strengthen our alliances with other states, networks of shared intelligence could do an impressive job of it. Of course, this would require a more invasive process of information gathering within and across national borders. In order to reduce the threat to civil liberties this would entail, Bobbitt highlights "our commitment to globalize the systems of human rights and government by consent.'... 'In many situations, he explains, our only option is to vest faith in properly formulated international and constitutional systems of law." See The Revolutionary Roots of the UN


President Bush Participates in Joint Press Availability with President Calderon of Mexico and Prime Minister Harper of Canada: BUSH: "...we spent time talking about the Colombia free trade agreement. Canada is negotiating a Colombia free trade agreement; Mexico has a free trade agreement with Colombia.... It makes no sense to me to say that Colombia goods can come into our country duty-free, yet our goods can't go into Colombia duty-free.... We're talking about food and product safety standards to make them compatible in a way that guarantees safety for our consumers.... Obviously, we talked about global warming and the need to make sure that major economies are all party to an agreement."

     CALDERÓN: "...Six, we also talked a lot about border projects. Our three countries want to have safe borders and we want to have efficient borders, borders that will improve the competitiveness of our various businesses and for the entire region. We talked about how to make the flow along the borders even better, how to improve trade there." See Green Lies and The "New European Soviet"  


José Can You See? Bush’s Trojan Taco: "The second reason Bush has kept this major summit [Canada, Mexio & the US] a virtual secret is its real agenda. More important, the agenda-makers, the guys who called the meeting, must remain as far out of camera range as possible: The North American Competitiveness Council. Never heard of The Council? Well, maybe you’ve heard of the counselors: the chief executives of Wal-Mart, Chevron Oil, Lockheed-Martin and 27 other multinational masters of the corporate universe. And why did the landlords of our continent order our presidents to a three-nation pajama party? Their term is 'harmonization.'...

       "Harmonization means making rules and regulations the same in all three countries. Or, more specifically, watering down rules – on health, safety, labor rights, oil drilling, polluting and so on - in other words, any regulations that get between The Council members and their profits.

       "Take for example, pesticides. Wal-Mart and agri-business don’t want to reduce the legal amount of poison allowed in what you eat. Solution: 'harmonize' US and Canadian pesticide standards to Mexico’s.... The three chiefs of state will meet privately with the thirty corporate chiefs...."
