OECD blueprint

It is hardly a contentious opinion—and one highlighted on this blog ad nauseam—that the three main parties are all pretty much the same, differing only in one or two (largely superficial) particulars.

Ian Parker-Joseph believes that he has found out why that should be: that governments are explicitly following the economic blueprint from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
[Gordon Brown] is following a blueprint, laid out in documentation at the OECD, which clearly outlines how all Western States should be approaching PFI, local authority outsourcing, regional funding, cross border equalisation of fiscal policies, Target driven policies including the KPI's to be measured and most contentious of all, Tax Policy. OECD has even planned out how your family should be structured and planned by their Directorate of Employment, Labour and Social Affairs.

It is worth shifting through Ian's remarkably detailed—and prolifically linked—post, and seeing the sheer scale of the planning. And his conclusion?
I know there are many who have considered that Government plans, spending and initiatives over the past 12 years have been put down to inept ministers, but we can clearly see from this and other documentation on the OECD site, that they were only following orders, pre-ordained as part of the plans of Global governance, therefore no reason to ever apologise for their actions. A world run by process driven functionaries.

Globalisation is not just about global business, or global money, we can see here a development well under way for homogeneous Global government, right down to the local level, which is being adopted by all OECD members, and now also being adopted by non-OECD countries under extreme pressure.
...

For Libertarians, this entire set of projects set up by the OECD cannot be allowed to dictate policy within Sovereign states. The tax affairs of state are just that, private between state and citizens. The right of any state to make its own laws, maintain its own sovereignty and jurisdiction, without impediment by any other jurisdictional are essential if elected representatives are to have any value.

We elect our representatives, both national and local to serve our best interests, and in no way have we given them permission to sell those interests to supranational bodies or organisations.

Your humble Devil is ploughing his way through some of the documents at present, but is certainly highly cynical about supranational bodies: especially those that describe themselves thusly...
Our mission

OECD brings together the governments of countries committed to democracy and the market economy from around the world to:
  • Support sustainable economic growth

  • Boost employment

  • Raise living standards

  • Maintain financial stability

  • Assist other countries' economic development

  • Contribute to growth in world trade

The Organisation provides a setting where governments compare policy experiences, seek answers to common problems, identify good practice and coordinate domestic and international policies.

Because, I must say, I don't remember voting for any of this crap; nor do I recall voting for any member of the 2,500 OECD staff; I certainly do not remember voting for my hard-earned cash to be stolen from me to be ploughed into the economies of other nations.

Last month, I wrote a post describing my apprehension and worry about the way that the entire world seemed to be embracing "soft" socialism.
You see, what I saw—reading between the lines of the manufactured disagreements and media-interpreted problems—was a bunch of people with the same hideous agenda: reform of economies in a model of their choosing.

And I saw a bunch of politicians, all of whom were representatives of socialism—whether that be the soft Communism of the Chinese or the "social democracy" of Brown—coming together with the conversation starting with "a conspiracy against the public". All were advocating the same basic ideas, the same consensus—and you know how keen I am on consensus.
...

We who are libertarians, who want to be left alone, are being conspired against and soon, no matter how rich you are, there will be no place of escape for the G20 socialist monsters will control all the civilised world.

Even the other countries will be off-limits, for the democratic socialists of the West have already bought their loyalty and obedience with bribes masquerading as "aid".

Such favours, direct funding and tax breaks have already bought the Third Sector and the mainstream media. The blogs remain, but will soon be regulated out of existence.

Everywhere the socialists have won.

Can it be, as Ian suggests, that all of these fuckers are, in fact, working to a blueprint laid out by the OECD? Sceptical though I am of conspiracy theories, it seems to me that it is entirely possible.

And if that is the case, we can all look forward to our new global parliament of technocrats, whilst the people toil on...

I'm unsure if the OECD is entirely relevant, since it doesn't matter what the source is when the outcome is the same.

Could be the OECD, World Bank, reactionary EU-ism, the devil (???) or just simple corruption. Whoever it is, the move towards collectivism barely shrouded behind the smokescreen of 'economic progression' should be resisted.

Seasteading, anyone?

Throw a fish on the grill, Tim - I'm swimming over.

'We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination [read as 'democracy'] practiced in past centuries." -- David Rockefeller, June 5, 1991, Bilderberger meeting in Baden Baden, Germany (a meeting also attended by then-Governor Bill Clinton)

Judging by their mission statement they must support the free market.I mean, see how that is the one thing proven to do all the things listed.

I think Ian Parker-Joseph's spot on,

but DK - "I don't remember voting for any of this crap"

It wasn't long ago you were attacking democracy, now you're complaining you haven't got enough.

Its already happened to us. For "global parliament of technocrats" substitute "EU Commission".

Before we start seeing conspiracy theories relating to the OECD we should deal with the conspiracy within the organisation we know to exist, which we know to be unelected, corrupt, and determined to form a superstate with that very aim almost complete as we speak - the EU

Yep - it's the gradual drift towards corporatism that I've noted before. As I've tried to point out, this is an inevitable result of globalisation. A globalised economy requires globalised regulation and globalised regulation requires globalised governance. It can't be voted for - so it is made up by appointed technocrats. Supranationalism is just mini globalisation on a regional scale.
