The poor rating I give this book is based on the subject of the book and the author's opinion that I find objectionable. He may be a good writer as far as the way this book was written.
The most positive aspect of this book is that it proves that contrary to some, there is indeed a coherent and organized plan to incorporate Mexico, Canada, and the United States of America into one government entity. NAFTA is viewed as the starting point.
On the balances of trade, job creation or loss, and capital flow you will read on page 2 where the author's priorities lie-
"These are important issues, but they are hardly sufficient to take the pulse of such a complex, dynamic phenomenon."
I would rate these issues as priority issues myself. But then I am working class.
An emphasized goal of the plan is to boost the middle class of the developing world. At whose expense we are not told.
Despite the rosy picture of NAFTA in this book, it obviously adversely affected American jobs. Ross Perot was right.
On page 39 Mr. Pastor mentions an obstacle to North American integration he calls "sovereignty". Another term for it is "patriotism". Put more bluntly, we are American citizens-as in United States of America- not North America or any other name the author would care to give a trilateral integration.
Sovereignty is a Constitutional concept that should not be so easily dismissed. It's a virtue not an "obstacle".Read more ›
Then Kissinger went even further by asserting that “It [NAFTA] will represent the most creative step toward a **new world order** taken by any group of countries since the end of the Cold War, and the first step toward an even larger vision of a free trade zone for the entire Western Hemisphere. NAFTA is not a conventional trade agreement, but the architecture of a new international system". More precisely, a new international system of PREDATORY CAPITALIST IMPERIALISM, nothing less !
The raison d’etre of the Trilateral Commission has always been to subvert democracy and create a new international world order. After it was founded in 1973, the conservative Republican Presidential candidate, Senator Barry Goldwater,
called it “a vehicle for multinational consolidation of commercial and banking interests.”
Another Trilateral Commission advocate, the author Robert A. Pastor is well known as the father of the North American Union (NAU), a more radical, more violent NAFTA, who has been pushing for a deeper integration of USA, Canada, and Mexico for years.
It is an indisputable fact that NAFTA, under the strong lead of USA's supra-nationalist corporatism, is indeed now rapidly being superseded by what the continent’s corporatist rulers are referring to as the North American Union (NAU), a unitary super state to be formed through the merger of Canada, Mexico and the U.S.Read more ›
But opposition is mounting. Perhaps the most blistering criticism has come from Lou Dobbs of CNN - a frequent critic of Bush's immigration policies.
"A regional prosperity and security program?" he asked rhetorically in a recent cablecast. "This is absolute ignorance. And the fact that we are -- we reported this, we should point out, when it was signed. But, as we watch this thing progress, these working groups are continuing. They're intensifying. What in the world are these people thinking about? You know, I was asked the other day about whether or not I really thought the American people had the stomach to stand up and stop this nonsense, this direction from a group of elites, an absolute contravention of our law, of our Constitution, every national value. And I hope, I pray that I'm right when I said yes. But this is -- I mean, this is beyond belief."
Recently, the Pittsburgh Tribune Review questioned the unchallenged momentum toward merger.
"Will Americans trade their dead presidents for Ameros?" the newspaper asked in an editorial last month.
The paper chided efforts at replacing the U.S. and Canadian dollars and Mexican peso with "the amero" - a knockoff of the euro - along with the building of "a looming NAFTA-like superstate." Citing the meeting between the three national leaders at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, in March 2005, the editorial warned: "Canadians, Mexicans and Americans who value the sovereignty of their respective countries should be concerned.Read more ›
