Old-Thinker News | Aug. 1, 2018 By Daniel Taylor During a recent appearance on Bloomberg, Council on Foreign Relations president Richard Haass lamented the destruction of international institutions and the lack of oversight to reign in “anarchy” on the internet

 

“The United States… has been the great preserver of international order… now we are the great disruptor…” stated Haass. Haass continues to lament the demise of the TPP agreement and suggest that the United States under Trump is moving toward authoritarianism. Regarding the internet Haass says “…In some areas we don’t have rules or institutions… take cyberspace, that’s the wild west… there aren’t enforcement mechanisms… there’s a serious degree of anarchy…” Haass stated in 2006 that “Globalization thus implies that sovereignty is not only becoming weaker in reality, but that it needs to become weaker. States would be wise to weaken sovereignty in order to protect themselves…” The Council on Foreign Relations was established as the U.S. branch of a global round table group in order to create a system of global governance. Carroll Quigley writes in Tragedy and Hope,

“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…. In fact, the original plans for the Royal Institute of International Affairs and the Council on Foreign Relations were drawn up at Paris.”

Quigley elaborates,

“The powers of financial capitalism has another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.”
