“Free Trade” is the central mantra. Globalization is set against national sovereignty, closed borders, trade tarrifs and anything that would restrict its goals and methods used to achieve them.
Globalization promotes regional and global government, a one-world economic system of trade and a form of fascism where global corporations and their elite control the policies and directives of individual governments.
The original and primary perpetrators of modern-day globalization number only in the 100′s, representative of which, but not exclusively, are members of The Trilateral Commission.
The Global Elite: Who Are They?
Patrick Wood November 21, 2005
There are two common misconceptions held by those who are critical of globalism.
The first error is that there is a very small group of people who secretly run the world with all-powerful and unrestrained dictatorial powers. The second error is that there is a large amorphous and secret organization that runs the world. In both cases, the use of the word “they” becomes the culprit for all our troubles, whoever “they” might be. If taxes go up, it is “they” that did it. If the stock market goes down, “they” are to blame. Of course, nobody really knows who “they” are so a few figureheads (people or organizations) are often made out to be the scapegoats. …
Every bit of thirty-five years of research indicates that there is a relatively small yet diverse group of global players who have been the planners and instigators behind globalization for many decades. The primary driving force that moves this “clique” is greed; the secondary force is the lust for power. In the case of the academics who are key to globalism, a third force is professional recognition and acceptance (a subtle form of egoism and power.)
It is also important to understand that core globalists have full understanding of their goals, plans and actions. They are not dimwitted, ignorant, misinformed or naive….

We empathize with everyone who is frustrated with lack of tangible, concrete things that can bring actual results. Letter writing campaigns, boycotts and the like are simplistic and ineffective. They may keep you busy, but they haven’t changed much!
The only hope we have is in the citizens themselves. A grass roots ground-swell is our only hope to address the onslaught of globalization. Such a movement must be based on FACTS, not on opinion or rhetoric. No public debate will ever be won against globalism without definitive and defensible proof of your position.
The August Review exists to provide that kind of education and information that allows you to take a firm stand on moral ground, able to withstand the shallow (yet persuasive) arguments of the global elite.

Czech President Slams New World Order At UN Speech [SOMEBODY with some SENSE!]
There is nothing new about the idea of managing others, or even of controlling the whole world. That has been the goal of social philosophers for thousands of years. However, we need not go back over ancient history. We are concerned primarily with what has been going on in our own generations. This we can understand quite well if we confine ourselves to the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries……
