The new globalists’ model of what is now called universal “governance” is in fact a colossal form of collectivism. As all ideologues do, they offer us superficial either/or choices. They do not understand that globalism will not change the fundamental human condition. World-shapers (rather, world-reshapers) are long familiar to those who have lived through radical political experiments, and we would do well to listen carefully to what the survivors have to tell us. Their experience is a crucial part of “the basic memory of mankind.” And they are consistent in their warnings that beneath the experimenters’ mental constructs, and even beneath their supposed humanitarianism, you will always find a killer. It is a fact that in the 20th century alone 170 million people were murdered by their own governments (this figure does not include human lives terminated through abortion and euthanasia). It is a fact that the majority of the murderous states were impelled by idealistic visions for solving the problem of man. Regardless of whether a killer is brutal and repulsive or whether he is altruistic and attractive (as he speaks in reasonable tones about the lives that must be subtracted from the human community), he is a killer. Presumption and arrogance over mankind always bring forth, in time, the fruit of death.
