Why You Need to Fear Your Big Brother

I hope it isn't just the aging process that has me anxious over recent developments and discussions in our society. I also still feel jumpy over how easy I fell into a trance as Covid policies and restrictions enveloped me like a boa constrictor seducing me with a song of personal comfort and peace to quell my fears and panic. 

Globalism may have some limited positive aspects like increased connectivity, economic development, and cultural exchange, but the price could be too high as agencies and industrial architects need to limit freedoms of individuals to accomplish what they see as a 'common good'.

Some of this high price includes involuntary (and coerced) wealth redistribution, job loss, loss of cultural identities, insecurity, loss of national sovereignty and security, limitations on travel and speech... among others.

In this debate, I tend to land on the side that nations should be able to prioritize their own well-being over global cooperation.

We should avoid political and economic entanglement with other countries that limit our Bill of Rights. We have to seek ways to reverse the globalist trend and minimize our nation's involvement in international affairs and maintain a focus on our own domestic concerns as much as possible.

We have to be willing to push back or outright reject the proposals entities play significant roles in promoting globalist principles, fostering international cooperation, and shaping global affairs, particularly these:

United Nations (UN): The UN was chartered as a global organization that aims to promote peace, security, and cooperation among nations. Recent stances and policies cause concern, especially to countries in the West. 

World Health Organization (WHO):
The speed and veracity that the WHO used to push Covid practices illustrates to concern I have over these powerful entities!

International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank: Though these institutions work to stabilize international financial systems and provide financial assistance to countries in need, consolidating wealth can easily lead to coercion and confiscation of individual's money and property.

Globalist entities also include the following:

Transnational Corporations: Large multinational corporations often operate across borders and play a crucial role in shaping the global economy. Their activities, investments, and supply chains can influence trade, technology transfer, and economic development on a global scale. In many ways, these powerful corporations have more potential for harm if greed overtakes the priorities of their agendas.

Global Alliances and Agreements: Regional and international agreements, such as the European Union (EU), NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement), and others, foster economic and political collaboration among participating nations. These agreements should always be limited to protect the rights of individuals.

Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs):NGOs, like Amnesty International, Greenpeace, and Doctors Without Borders, advocate for various global issues such as human rights, environmental protection, and public health. Though they often work independently, there could danger lurking as they collaboration with governments and international organizations for globalist conformity.

Philanthropic Foundations: Organizations like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Open Society Foundations allocate significant resources to address global initiatives.

Media and Technology Companies: Global media outlets and technology companies contribute to the dissemination of information and the shaping of public opinion on a global scale. The need for these companies to remain avenues for dissenting viewpoints are crucial to avoiding the negative impact of globalist initiatives.

I have been somewhat disheartened that there doesn't seem to be Christian leaders and thinkers leading in this area. I'm happy for the warriors in the gap for the time being, but we need spiritual applications to these issues as well.

Love to know what you think.
