To start, take a good hard look at where you as the reader truely feel our planet is heading in the distant future. It would be difficult for most of you to logically see a world where we are forever trapped on this planet in a coporatalized circle with no future in human advancement or space exploration. The truth as it stands is we are rapidlly moving to a life not just bound to our planet alone. Space travel itself has already gone the way of coporatalization with the ending of nasa's manned space flights. The owner of Virgin has plans for a space motel he is actively persuing with many other investors on his coat tails. This means the future of humanity is no longer bound to our planet alone, atleast to some extent.
Now back to the title of this post, let's look at this from TPTB's perspective... when humanity finally sets its goal on claiming space as its own (which as sad as it sounds, I think most of us would agree is inevitable) are we going to speed off into space, each country for its own, to take control of what ever resources they can get their hands on, putting us back in the constant resouce war we've been trapped in for so long? The only other alternative is a joint global effort that brings humanity together as one. TPTB have realized this fact for a long time now, and more than likely have put the steps into place to insure their profits continue as we venture into this new transition of mankind. So logically, it is enevitable that a "new world order" would have to be put into place to ensure those controlling the money, and in hand control us, would remained that way.
The real question are we going to sit and allow TPTB to institue a new world order on their own with their own shadows controlling it, or will the people of earth take it upon themselves to institute it first in order to have some form of control on our future?

I agree with the above poster. IMO, globalization has been horrible for the US. We should end all free trade agreements immediately. We should adopt punitive tariffs for all imports. We should end all foreign aid except to Israel. We should also round up all of our liberal environazis and ship them to Europe or something.

I'm a born-again Christian and believe me, I'm no threat to anyone. Talking about radical right-wing Christians, can you say Blackwater? I will have nothing to do with these people. These are your dangerous "Christians" ...
