The problem with globalism

Americans are pessimistic about the future.  They also view past decades more favorably than they do the present one.  The “land of opportunity” is gone.  The “American dream” is gone.  What remains is a fading memory of what America used to be without an underlying promise that its erstwhile preeminence can be restored.

When every human is encouraged — if not mandated — to act strictly for the “common good” of the global population, then those preferences that advance an individual’s, family’s, or nation’s unique interests must be undermined.

Globalism and State supremacy are diametrically opposed to the family.  By elevating a loyalty to the “common good” and the State’s “expertise” over the private decision-making of families, the State has weakened the most natural engine for creating and sustaining a human being’s identity and purpose.  Government agents now insert themselves between parents and their children in matters as personal as religious conviction, sexual morality, and psychological well-being.  Should parents reject any of the State’s radical ideologies, their natural rights as parents are threatened.  Just as during China’s Cultural Revolution, Western governments now dominate the family’s private sphere.

In my experience, human suffering arises when people feel that they have no control over their own lives.  How do you create happy societies?  Encourage citizens to embrace God, private property, and free speech.

Globalism does just the opposite.  It requires total dependency on government.  When COVID struck, the State closed churches, bankrupted small businesses, and silenced dissent.  The cult of “climate change” insists that you own nothing, produce nothing, and pray to Mother Earth.  The State’s preposterous “War on Disinformation and Hate” seeks to enslave the mind and criminalize thoughts.  And the individual is expected to make all these sacrifices for the glory of the “multicultural,” “inclusive,” “equitable,” “green”-energy-obsessed, globalist State.  Unsurprisingly, most humans have no interest in praying at the church of the United Nations or obeying the World Health Organization’s and World Economic Forum coercive mandates and manipulations as if they were the Ten Commandments.

Globalism can succeed only in a terribly pessimistic world.  It thrives on racism.  It depends upon an apocalyptic vision of a dying planet.  It needs to divide people against one another, so that they are too busy to unite and resist those who cause them actual harm.  Under globalist government, happiness is smothered with misery, fear, and hate.

Globalism is where optimism goes to die.  Happiness will require its demolition.
