Once considered a fringe philosophy of the far left, globalism is reaching further into the mainstream than ever today, prompting a strong tone from many of America’s more patriotic leaders.
I can recall the first time I had ever truly encountered the idea of globalism, and it was in a transmission from Alex Jones. I can’t remember now if it was a radio show or a visual representation, but I remember immediately heading to Google to get a better idea as to what Jones was ranting about.
At the core of this concern is the idea of a loss of sovereignty, and, thus an eventual push toward homogeny. Globalists are not only thinking about this sort of anti-diversity in terms of national borders and currency, either. Instead, they are pushing for the “new world order” of conspiracy theories through fear mongering and the skewing of science…and that’s just in the case of global warming.
President Trump today took a massive stand against these would-be tyrants, in a speech to the United Nations.
President Trump excoriated the “ideology of globalism” and multinational authorities, underscoring the importance of national sovereignty and need for countries to pay for their own defense in his address before the United Nations General Assembly in New York Tuesday.
The president’s second address before the body since taking office was marked by the president’s insistence that other nations look out for themselves and their own interests, and allow the United States to do the same.
“I honor every nation to pursue its own customs, beliefs and traditions. The United States will not tell you how to live or work or worship,” Mr. Trump said. “We only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return.
After all, these are the characteristics that brought Americans to the forefront of the world’s stage to begin with. Why would anyone oppose a continuation of that success?
Oh, wait. The “resistance”…that’s why.
