Obama’s New World Order Part 1: A New Financial Order
Now that the majority of Americans have been completely swayed by the promises of hope and change by a handsome, charismatic new leader, Time Magazine has reported that the New World Order agenda will continue under President-elect Obama. However, Time Magazine’s claim that this is Obama’s New World Order is erroneous; Obama’s role will simply be the front man whose job will be to sell Americans on the concept of a world government.
According to Wikipedia, the New World Order is simply “a new period of history evidencing a dramatic change in world political thought and the balance of power.” The concept has been around for decades, but has only entered the public consciousness in recent years, most notably with President Bush’s dramatic New World Order Speech of September 11, 1990 (often cited as March 6, 1991). Bush’s speech focused on the Persian Gulf crisis and the federal budget deficit.
At the core of the current New World Order agenda will be a solution to the current global financial crisis. In mid October 2008, many world leaders called for a “new financial order” including French President Nicolas Sarkozy, European Union Commission President José Manuel Barroso, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. One measure for a complete restructuring of the global financial system was Prime Minister Brown’s call for a new Bretton Woods , while Secretary General Ki-moon suggested that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) play a key role in overseeing the global financial system. China, the world’s largest holders of US dollars said that the world must adopt a new currency order that will no longer be dependent on the United States.
If we apply the concept a “dramatic change in balance of power” (a new world order), to the term “financial world order,” we can safely assume that the United States will face enormous changes during the upcoming years as well as the prospect of losing its status as the dominant super power. Obama has already given an ominous warning that the current financial crisis will get worse before it gets better.
