"Issues and Action in Education"
Global Education/Global Government at the Door

The worldwide financial crisis is being used as an excuse to create a global government.
To that end, on April 26, 2010, the President of the European Central Bank, Jean-Cluade Trichet, delivered a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) called, "Global Government Today."
Forbes online summarized the Trichet speech to the CFR as follows:
"The President of the European Central Bank, Jean-Claude Trichet, told Forbes that global governance is extremely necessary if we want to prevent another financial crisis."
Robert Rubin, Chairman of the CFR, signaled his support and that of the CFR for global government by responding to Trichet as follows: "Jean Claude, you were terrific."
By his remarks, Trichet, was reinforcing the position of European Union President, Herman Von Rompuy, who recently announced:
"2009 is also the first year of global governance."
The primary institution of global governance, according to Trichet, will be the Global Economy Meeting (GEM), which regularly meets in Basel, Switzerland. Trichet explained that this body, with its agreements "has become the prime group for global governance among central banks." GEM is a committee of the Bank for International Settlements, a non-governmental organization controlled by none other than the large banks of the world.
The UN's World Bank President and CFR member, Robert Zoellick, explained how this will happen. Said Zoellick:
"If leaders are serious about creating new global responsibilities or governance, let them start by modernising multilateralism to empower the WTO, the IMF, and the World Bank Group to monitor national policies."
That means that the big banks -- which Trichet referred to as a parallel government -- will give global institutions the power to regulate national policy. Doing so creates a global government.
I and others at EdWatch have pointed out on numerous occasions that education in America is being used as a tool for preparing our nation for global government. International Baccalaureate (IB), for example, is an international system of education run by UNESCO, a branch of the UN. IB, which is subsidized with state and federal tax dollars, is the prototype for a uniform system of international education run by global government.
IB says on its web site that its goal is to create world citizens. By that statement IB means that its purpose is to create individuals who owe their allegiance to global government, not to the United States or any other nation for that matter.
At the same time, state lawmakers are eagerly trying to qualify for "Race To The Top" -- the federal education program which has states writing curriculum standards that conform to "international standards." Translate "international standards" to mean UNESCO curriculum standards.
If global government becomes a reality, the United States will no longer be a free and independent nation but will rather be under the control of the global government body.
Last fall's environmental conference in Copenhagen was intended to establish global control of energy, and now the World Health Organization has called for the right to collect taxes to support its efforts.
International agencies that collect taxes, other international agencies that control energy-these are additional key components of global government.
The tentacles of global government are penetrating our nation from all sides -- and neither the public, nor most lawmakers, have a clue about what is happening.
At the same time, by his intention to sign the proposed environmental accord at Copenhagen, President Obama has made it clear that he enthusiastically supports global government. We need to seriously ask if we as a nation have either the will, or the means, to stop it.
