Scott Morrison: Glimmers of Nationalism? By James Reed
I was pleasantly, if not peasanty, surprised to read this glimmer of opposition to the New World Odour, sorry, Order, by our pm. Yes, the NWO even mentioned by name in the article, not an invention of my fervoured imagination. But it seems like only yesterday that when Eric Butler and Jeremy Lee spoke about the New World Order, the mainstreamers poo-pooed it, but now, well here you go:
“Scott Morrison has declared his government will lead the charge in asserting the authority of nation states over unelected international -institutions, such as the UN. The Prime Minister, in a major foreign policy address to the Lowy Institute on Thursday evening, signalled Australia would seek to play a greater role in shaping a new economic and strategic world order. Mr Morrison’s speech was aimed squarely at the push by the UN to set the global agenda on issues such as climate change and refugee policies. As democratic nations increasingly band together to counter a rising China, Mr Morrison announced he would visit India and Japan early next year and Indonesia next month. Mr Morrison’s visit to Washington DC late last month sparked debate about how the nation should balance its relationship with the US and China, but he told the Lowy Institute it was not a “binary” equation. While Mr Morrison recognised the benefits the global economy had brought Australia, he declared that the ballot box should always be more powerful than international institutions. He warned that where elite opinion became disconnected from the mainstream of societies, it could foster a sense of resentment and disappointment. “(It is) an era of insiders and outsiders, threatening social cohesion, provoking discontent and distrust,” Mr Morrison said. He said Australia would partner with the international community through “practical globalism” and vowed to make fresh efforts to reshape inter-national rules, starting with a new audit of global institutions and rule-making processes. “We should avoid any reflex towards a negative globalism that coercively seeks to impose a mandate from an often ill-defined borderless global community. And worse still, an unaccountable internationalist bureaucracy,” Mr Morrison said. “Only a national government, especially one accountable through the ballot box and the rule of law, can define its national interests. We can never answer to a higher authority than the people of Australia.” He said Australia had played its part over the generations to build a better world through “co-operative and respectful internationalism”. But he warned that pragmatic international engagement was giving way to a new order that sought to “elevate global institutions above the authority of nation states to direct national policies”.
This is a good start and the pm should be encouraged to march on down the road to nationalism. Who knows, after another 50 years we might be getting back to where we were in 1950, in the great seesaw of history:
