Gore Funding Plan For “A New World Order”
That is the title of Dan Riehl’s latest post. It may be the most important essay you’ll read this year.
Lefties will condemn it as paranoid. I wish they were right. But this phenomenon has been building for a long, long time. And now the nightmare he describes is coming into the daylight. It’s hideous looking.
Dan is to be congratulated for a Herculean effort, one which will bring down the wrath and withering ridicule of those he exposes. However, our European friends will not be so quick to condemn what has become their reality.
I am not going to expand on his points. I simply ask you to read them so you will know where we’re headed. The signposts to Utopian Hell are well marked here.
As Dan says, he has connected the dots. Our Brit friends know what a fiend Soros is. We all know that Dean is unhinged at best – they keep him on a leash and let him loose at appropriate times.
NOTE: Dan rightly points out that these ideas are not original with him; they begin in – of all places – The New York Times in 2004.
And now, Dan Riehl:
The Generation Foundation is not your typical foundation involved in giving money to what it views as deserving causes. And the ramifications of its work should be of genuine concern for fiscal and social conservatives, civil libertarians and anyone who supports the free market system and the economics, or laisser-faire capitalism of Milton Friedman.
By their own admission, Gore and his well-heeled, high-minded brand of liberal thinkers believe Capitalism is either dead, or deserves to be. Here’s the first quick look at a now Gore supported and funded, self-proclaimed New World Order as ruminated upon back in 2002.
Above all, the man is wondering whether Americans need to pause for a moment, now that the millennium has turned and the market has crashed and corporate ethics seem like the quaint idea of a bygone era. And then, after this pause, the man wonders if we need to think long and hard about what we want and how money — and, in particular, value — figures into the arc of our lives.
He has come up with an idea that admittedly might not solve any of our financial and social ills, but that he hopes might solve quite a few of them.
The man’s name is Jed Emerson. And his idea is called the “blended value” proposition.
Jed Emerson used to spend his afternoons walking into shooting galleries to dispense clean needles and condoms in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district and now lecture(s) to the most powerful business leaders on the planet. (emphasis mine – Dan Riehl)
Those facts aren’t inserted to disparage Emerson’s work, but to highlight precisely the brand of social values Gore wants to build into our economic system so that they are realized though a non-democratic system controlled by wealth, as opposed to votes. And conservatism’s good friend George Soros is linked to the work, as well.
Gore’s foundation has employed the now well-credentialed Emerson as their first senior research fellow.
Jed Emerson is the first Generation Foundation Senior Fellow. Learn more about his body of work on Blended Value.
You might recall my post on Working Assets, the Leftist publishing company that plucked Glenn Greenwald out of the blogosphere to publish a hastily written book to bash Bush and oppose the Patriot Act. Their financial backing links them to the Phoenix Group, does the name George Soros ring a bell? It isn’t me making these connections; it’s the New York Times.
– – – – – – – – – –
To understand the financial connections that can now be documented, you’ll also want to understand the Phoenix Group (PG)…as reported in depth through the New York Times, Wiring the Vast Left Wing Conspiracy, July 2004. Wealthy associates of the group have been propping up the Netroots movement, enjoying the cachet of a ground up grass roots movement that’s actually financed and, I’d argue, controlled from the top down by big money, just as is most all contemporary politics. The Times piece is an absolute must read.
Some of the key PG players, though far from all, are Howard Dean, George Soros, Simon Rosenberg, Andy Rappaport, and SEIU President Andy Stern.
Take a moment and process that. Some of the very same individuals, now well networked, can almost immediately launch a New York Times best seller written by an all but unreadable blogger, a book intended to attack Bush and defeat the Patriot Act; meanwhile the same individuals are drawing a road map for the US economy based upon a self-labeled Utopian neo-capitalist ideology. Scary? It should be, as the Right has not kept up.
This is not a battle to be won or lost tomorrow, or even next year. It’s a battle conservatives and libertarians must understand and engage over the next decade if they wish to prevail.
Now that we understand who would design this new values-based economic system Gore and his Leftist buddies have in mind, it’s important to understand the notion behind Blended Value. Building moral or social value into our economic system may sound nice, but whose values? Who gets to decide? Not you. The system only works provided the society marches in lockstep on difficult choices. In Gore’s proposed system, decisions don’t flow from the bottom up, as with democracy. They flow from the top down with the money.
If Gore has his way, the wealthiest of the world, those who invest and support corporations in the largest measure, get to decide how everyone gets to live, what causes are supported, or dropped. And he has the nerve to call it freedom? It’s not even close.
This is one essay that needs to be read in its entirety, or you will miss how truly awful this is. And how myriad and various are the ways in which you are being distracted.
Brittany Spears, anyone? Football? Television series you can’t miss?
The modern road to hell is paved with “entertainments.”
There is a dead link in Dan’s original post to The Hill. It concerns George Soros, but I was unable to bring it up. If our readers have any luck with this, please put a note in the comments and I will update.
Now, thanks to Wally Ballou, that intrepid explorer of the internet jungle, we have a link to The Hill article.
