Last week a headline appeared in the local paper which began with the words ‘World Leaders.’ It was a typical headline that one sees whenever there is a big meeting such as the G20. Even though it was typical, it still got me thinking. I wondered about the person who wrote the headline and the editor who approved it. How does one decide that there is such a thing as a ‘world leader’? Why did they choose those particular words to convey the information they were trying to get across: that presidents and prime ministers were gathering somewhere. More not-so-subtle brainwashing.
What the hell is a ‘world leader’? OK, Barack Obama is the president of the United States, which is the predominant military power on the planet. So does that automatically make him a world leader? I wonder what the cut-off line is for being one of these imaginary creatures. If you are the elected head of a country which has a top-ten GDP, are you in this elitist group? Or is more about the size of your country’s military? The more one looks at this, the more absurd it all starts to sound.
Getting back to Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Obama, does he really speak for anybody outside the United States? Hell, even within the United States, he only represents a tiny fraction of the population who still support him. And yet we dare to haphazardly pin the moniker of world leader on him?
Just the term itself should make any self-respecting citizen of a sovereign country cringe with embarrassment. Only a few short years ago, if you spoke about a one-world government with a one-world bank and one-world army, you’d be accused by most everybody as a rabid ‘conspiracy theorist.’ And yet the movement towards just such a system has been happening for a long, long time. Much of this agenda has been kept hidden and secret but much of it has been openly and proudly written and spoken of. When you see headlines like this , ‘they’ are merely getting you, the people, used to the idea. Yes, humanity, we now have our world leaders.
Step by step, they lead us along their agenda. Gradually, Europeans have been getting used to hearing about the ‘leaders’ of the EU, who were making laws superseding the laws of their own countries. The next logical step from an EU leader is a world leader. The same phenomenon is happening in other parts of the world. Here in Southeast Asia, the regional bloc is called ASEAN.
People need to learn to recognize the insidious nature of Orwellian doublespeak and language manipulation by the controlling class. We the people don’t need ‘world leaders’ or any other kind of leaders. We’re quite capable of leading ourselves, if we are brave enough to take on the challenge.
