The Council on Foreign Relations is almost certainly the World's most influential agency for the promotion of global governance, so this self-promotional video is worth a view.
The Council on Foreign Relations is an outgrowth of Cecil Rhodes' Secret Society, which aimed to extend the British Empire to the entire globe. Carroll Quigley, Bill Clinton's admired history tutor at Georgetown University and the official historian of the the Secret Society (or the Rhodes-Milner Group as it came to be known), explained the origins of the CFR in his sweeping history of the modern era, Tragedy and Hope:
At the end of the war of 1914, it became clear that the organization of this system had to be greatly extended. . . . Lionel Curtis . . . established, in England and each dominion, a front organization to the existing local Round Table Group…This front organization, called the Royal Institute of International Affairs, had as its nucleus in each area the existing submerged Round Table Group…in New York it was known as the Council on Foreign Relations, and was a front for J. P. Morgan and Company in association with the very small American Round Table Group. The American organizers were dominated by the large number of Morgan 'experts'… The Round Table for years (until 1961) was edited from the back door of Chatham House grounds in Ormond Yard, and its telephone came through the Chatham House switchboard (Tragedy and Hope: 951-952).Although the society and it's now independent American offshoot have generally operated with stealth, the purpose of the movement, as seen by its originators, is the high-minded goal of establishing a civilized system of global governance, based on the rule of law, parliamentary democracy and the principles espoused by Jesus of Nazareth as stated in the Sermon on the Mount. However, the recent CFR-backed rape of Libya, rather transcends that original moral directive.
In conformity with its basic objective, the CFR and the London-based Round Table Groups, Chatham House, aka the Royal Institute for International Affairs, supported the creation and continual expansion of the EU, the creation of the Canada-US Free Trade Area (FTA), the Canada-US-Mexico North American Free Trade Area (NAFTA), the World Trade Organization (WTO), the continual expansion of NATO, and the yet to be consummated Free Trade area of the Americas (FTAA).
But while the lovely people at the Council of Foreign Relations, Angelina Jolie, et al., may not be evil by intent, their program is odious to the great majority of mankind, who for the most part have been brought up within the framework of a nation state, with its distinctive heredity, history, culture and religion, and have no desire to become part of a polyglot, globalized, mongrel society.
