“You know we are at an inflection point, I believe, in the world economy — not just the world economy, in the world. Occurs every three or four generations,” Biden told chief executives at a Business Roundtable earlier this year in Washington, D.C.
In video footage seen by Worthy News and confirmed by a White House transcript Biden also referred to previous wars and other crises to make his case for a new world order. “As one of the top military people said to me in a security meeting the other day, 60 million people died between 1900 and 1946. And since then, we’ve established a liberal world order, and that hadn’t happened in a long while.”
Biden added: “A lot of people died but nowhere near the chaos, and now is the time when things are shifting. There’s going to be a new world order out there. We’ve got to lead it, and we’ve got to unite the rest of the free world in doing it.”
Biden’s use of the phrase “new world order” has been condemned by critics.
“There could be a new world order out there, and we’ve got to lead it.’ – Joe Biden,” independent journalist Drew Hernandez wrote on social media network Twitter. “Out in plain sight, Biden openly telling you he listens to globalist military advisors.”
Liberal commentators said Biden’s full speech showed he was discussing global changes in the wake of Russia’s attack on Ukraine. Biden, they said, was not confirming “a one-world government conspiracy theory.”
A CONSPIRACY THEORY?
USA Today newspaper concluded “that historians and experts,” say the term “new world order” has been used by politicians “for decades” to describe global changes during a new period of history.
While the “new world order” was attacked as a conspiracy theory, the World Economic Forum (WEF) has adopted the phrase to describe a desired change in the global economy.
The WEF, which is self-described as an “International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation,” – made clear it seeks a desired change in the global economy.
One WEF article from 2018 entitled “We must work together to build a new world order. This is how we can do it” claims that the West has been resisting a “change in the international order.”
The article, reviewed by Worthy News, accuses the West of “intransigent denial while zealously clinging onto what we inherited from the Cold War.”
The WEF wrote that “It was the vision of a lack of alternatives that stoked this fear [of changing the order] of not letting go of the 1990s. What lay behind this was the erroneous belief that the mission of shaping the world through essentially western institutions and norms ‘gave diverse people a sense of a shared mission and a common vocabulary.’ This is likely to be less and less the case.”
The article stressed that the West’s denial is based on “the need to defend a certain way of life against a different one” and suggested taking countries such as China as an example.
HUMAN RIGHTS ‘MURKY’
“That murky [Western] definition was colored with the principles of freedom, democracy, and human rights, but there were parts of the so-called ‘Western bloc’ that did not fall within these principles at all,” the article said.
“China, on the other hand, prefers to promote and soften its growing international influence by referring to ‘cooperation’ and a ‘win-win’ approach under a globalist outlook,” it added. “China’s use of infrastructure-for-resources loans in Africa, as well as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), have been put forward as a new regional and globalist ‘win-win’ strategy.”
Skeptics fear the WEF vision could further limit freedom globally by issuing central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) and East-West armed conflicts.
Dutch Queen Maxima was criticized by commentators this month for publicly embracing CBDCs, which could enable governments to control people’s spending.
Máxima, the United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development (UNSGSA), was a keynote speaker at the recent annual IMF – World Bank meeting in Washington, D.C.
“Maxima openly advocates for programmable money; power in central banks, without parliamentary accountability,” argued leading Dutch financial journalist Arno Wellens.
Yet, President Biden’s words seemed to reflect that a new world order is underway, with or without the U.S. leading (what is left) of the free world.
