UN Document Outlines Globalists’ True Definition of “Reform”

In preparation for the UN’s September 9, 2000 Millennium Summit, to be attended by nearly every world leader, more than 1,000 non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) from more than 100 countries gathered together at UN headquarters in New York City to form the Summit agenda. The document, entitled “Declaration and Agenda for Action, Strengthening the United Nations,” leaves no doubt as to the intentions of those who run the UN. They want global power, money and control. They call for an end to independent sovereign nations. They intend to have a global army to keep us under control, a global court to punish us and global taxes to pay for it all. It is also clear from this document that the true purpose of the Millennium Summit is to change the focus and perhaps even the actual UN Charter (first adopted in 1945). Let the document speak for itself. The following are quotes taken directly from the “Declaration and Agenda for Action.”

OUR VISION

Our vision is a world that is human-centered and genuinely democratic, where all human beings are full participants and determine their own destinies. In our vision, we are one human family, in all our diversity, living in one common homeland and sharing a just, sustainable and peaceful world, guided by universal principles of democracy, equality, inclusion, volunteerism, non-discrimination and participation by all persons, men and women, young and old, regardless of race, faith, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity or nationality. It is a world where peace and human security, as envisioned in the principles of the United Nations Charter, replace armaments, violent conflict and wars. It is a world where everyone lives in a clean environment and with a fair distribution of the earth’s resources. Our vision includes a special role for the dynamism of young people and the experience of the elderly and reaffirms the universality, indivisibility and interdependence of all human rights – civil, political, economic, social and cultural.

STRENGTHENING AND DEMOCRATIZING THE UNITED NATIONS AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS

A major task of the world community in the twenty-first century will be to strengthen and greatly enhance the role of the United Nations in the global context. Governments must recommit themselves to the realization of the goals and mandates of the United Nations Charter. A challenging task is to firmly protect the integrity of the United Nations, counter the erosion of its role and to further strengthen and augment international institutions capable of implementing and enforcing international standards, norms and law, leading toward the formation of a new political order.

(Tasks for) THE UNITED NATIONS

To make the Security Council more representative of the world. Permanent membership in the Security Council is problematic because it blocks change and fails to accommodate evolving realities. Thus, the UN should begin to phase out the existing permanent membership in favor of a more flexible and accountable system. The Council should be immediately enlarged with newly elected members drawn from the member States from different regions of the world on a rotational basis.

IR Note: The UN Security Council is the one place where the United States has been able to defend its interests. It’s ability to veto policies that go against the interests of the United States are now viewed as “problematic.”

To make the International Court of Justice (ICJ) the locus of a more effective, integrated system of international justice. The compulsory jurisdiction of the World Court must be accepted by all states. In the absence of voluntary compliance, the Security Council should enforce ICJ decisions and other international legal obligations under Article 94 of the UN Charter.

IR Note: See how it works. Remove the United States from permanent membership of the Security Council. Then, if the U.S. refuses to recognize the UN Criminal Court or any other UN dictate, the new Security Council can vote to enforce it on us. Then the situation will no longer be “problematic.” That’s how dictatorships operate.

(Tasks for) GOVERNMENTS

To increase substantially the regular and peacekeeping budgets of the United Nations.

To pay UN dues on time, in full and without conditions. UN discussion of global taxes and fees had been stifled by the threat of a funding cut by a single member state. This blackmail must be rejected and the UN must vigorously explore the possibilities of alternate finding from such sources.

IR Note: The United States is the “single member state.” It is also the nation that has paid more than a third of the UN’s budget, supplied the majority of UN peacekeeping forces and budgets, provided the UN headquarters and keeps the organization alive. Yet, to the UN bureaucrat the U.S. simply represents one vote and a treasury full of money. Now our attempt to have a say in how our money is being spent is called “blackmail.”

To move towards creation of alternative revenue sources for the United Nations. The UN should set up expert groups and begin the necessary intergovernmental negotiations towards establishing alternative revenue sources, which could include fees for the commercial use of the oceans, fees for airplane use of the skies, fees for use of the electromagnetic spectrum, fees on foreign exchange transactions (i.e. the Tobin Tax), and a tax on the carbon content of fuels.

IR Note: The Tobin Tax, alone, would pour over one billion dollars a year into the UN coffers. Also note, today, gasoline would only cost about 71 cents per gallon without government taxes. Now the UN proposes an international tax on top of those. Can you afford a global government?

To extend consultative rights of access and participation to NGO’s. Governments should complete the process of extending to NGO’s rights of access and participation in the General Assembly and its Main Committees and subsidiary bodies.

IR Note: This proposal calls for giving equal governing status to non-governmental organizations (NGO’s). These are private groups, never elected to anything. They simply apply to the UN for NGO status. If the UN likes them, status is granted. If not – they are barred. NGO’s Include most of the radical environmental movement, Planned Parenthood, Mikhail Gorbachev’s “Green Cross” and the earth-worshipping Temple of Understanding. They are elected by no one. They represent only their own narrow interests. And they can be counted on to support the UN’s drive for global governance. Under the UN’s new Charter for Global Democracy, they will be installed as your new global government.
