Globalist Organization Calls for a Massive Welfare State Alongside Mass Migration
Alex Newman of The New American exposed the Council on Foreign Relation’s latest justification for mass migration.
In their view, CFR believes that America should expand the size and scope of government.
CFR cited the lavish welfare states in Sweden and Denmark as examples of successful socio-economic organization.
Should America not follow this rubric, the nation will supposedly lag behind in the emerging globalist paradigm.
Newman cited U.S. Admiral Chester Ward, a CFR member for almost 20 years before he decided to defect, in order to explain CFR’s nefarious intentions. Ward even claimed that the principal objective of the organization is to attack U.S. sovereignty and transition the United States into an “all-powerful one-world government.”
Admiral Ward also explained the way it moves its objectives forward.
“Once the ruling members of CFR have decided that the U.S. Government should adopt a particular policy, the very substantial research facilities of CFR are put to work to develop arguments, intellectual and emotional, to support the new policy, and to confound and discredit, intellectually and politically, any opposition,” he stated. “The most articulate theoreticians and ideologists prepare related articles, aided by the research, to sell the new policy and to make it appear inevitable and irresistible.”
“By following the evolution of this propaganda in the most prestigious scholarly journal in the world, [CFR mouthpiece] Foreign Affairs, anyone can determine years in advance what the future defense and foreign policies of the United States will be,” Ward asserted. “If a certain proposition is repeated often enough in that journal, then the U.S. Administration in power — be it Republican or Democratic — begins to act as if that proposition or assumption were an established fact.”
Although globalism has met a roadblock in the Trump era, these plans have been decades in the making.
Mass migration and multilateral trade deals are at the center of the globalist civic religion, which Newman noted:
As readers of this magazine know well, though, when the CFR advocates “trade,” it is generally referring not to genuine free trade, but to sovereignty-shredding “free trade” agreements that strip nations and peoples of the right to govern themselves. Mass migration, meanwhile, also helps smash national identities, culture, and eventually, the nation-state itself, as Europe is learning the hard way right now.
The report also listed several policy recommendations. These policies entail a very intrusive government to accommodate mass migration:
- Government should step in to create “better jobs and career paths for Americans.”
- A call for “highly-skilled” migration
- More government funding for “research”
- Placing college and university “education” within “reach” of all Americans
- Adopt the “flexicurity” models of Scandinavian countries which will likely raise taxes across the board for Americans
- Demand that the U.S. government “create portable systems of employment benefits tied to individual employees rather than to jobs themselves.”
It’s clear that instead of trying to stop mass migration, many political elites have been willing to accept it and even go as far as to accommodate it with government programs.
When organizations like CFR float a policy idea, you better believe that they’re planning on passing it within a decade or so.
