by Lisa E. McLoughlin, Truth About IB
Five years ago, I wrote to Washington Post and Newsweek journalist Jay Mathews to complain of the IBO Director General’s love affair with Jean Jacques Rousseau and his avocation of a “New Social Contract” for international education. I have been labeled a crackpot, a right-wing extremist, a xenophobe, a heretic and a racist for my condemnation of Rousseau’s philosophy as something that is “bad” for American education.
This morning while reading Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism, I have finally been vindicated for my deepest suspicions about what is wrong with IB.
From page 39:
“According to Rousseau, individuals who live in accordance with the general will are ‘Free’ and ‘virtuous’ while those who defy it are criminals, fools or heretics. These enemies of the common good must be forced to bend to the general will. It was Rousseau who originally sanctified the will of the masses while dismissing the mechanisms of democracy as corrupting and profane. Such mechanics – voting in elections, representative bodies, and so forth – ‘are hardly ever necessary where the government is well intentioned”.
Therefore, it is beyond ironic that in 1799, a very different George Walker wrote a book called “The Vagabond”, a satire directed against the Jacobin philosophers that IB’s George Walker exalts.
It is therefore of even greater concern that under the current one party domination of the United States, I stumbled upon a “wing” of the IB called www.ibarms.org. Based right here in our beautiful Rocky Mountains, IB Arms bases its movement on J.F. Rischard’s book High Noon. (Please bear with me, the One World Government ties are too clear to dismiss as conspiracy theory, as IB supporters will do by their very nature).
For those of you unfamiliar with Jean-Francoise Rischard, he was vice President of the World Bank from 1998-2005. All of Rischard’s writings are readily available at a site called UN Jobs. My “favorite” on the list is: “Getting Serious About Internationalizing the Curriculum”, by J.F. Rischard High Noon. “Sharing our rule book. Issues needing a global regulatory approach”.
A “global regulatory approach”? Here we sit in the abyss of a global economic meltdown unparalleled in history while an unpublicized amendment is passed in the U.S. House of Representatives rebuking President Obama by a vote of 429-2!
“House members approved an amendment by a 429-2 vote to have the Obama administration pressure the World Bank to strengthen labor and environmental standards and require a Treasury Department report on World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) activities. The amendment to a 2010 funding bill for the State Department and foreign operations was proposed by Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas), but it received broad bipartisan support. The conditions on World Bank and IMF funding were part of the $106 billion war supplemental bill that was passed last month. Obama, in a statement made as he signed the bill, said that he would ignore the conditions. They would ‘interfere with my constitutional authority to conduct foreign relations by directing the Executive to take certain positions in negotiations or discussions with international organizations and foreign governments, or by requiring consultation with the Congress prior to such negotiations or discussions,’ Obama said in the signing statement.”
All Americans should be outraged at the audacity of a U.S. President who arrogantly seeks to ignore funding statutes approved by Congress for regulatory authority over the World Bank and the IMF’s use of U.S. tax dollars. Certainly Rischard would roundly applaud Obama’s trampling of the U.S. Constitution in favor of handing power over to the World Bank and the IMF on our dollars.
This is no conspiracy theory. This is carefully plotted history being made before our very eyes. The Left will attempt to mask this plot and dismiss such allegations as “ignorant” and “foolish”. But facts are facts, we must always know the history behind such movements and make sure that this one, more carefully orchestrated and global in intensity due to modern technology, doesn’t overtake us before it’s too late. There is still time to stop this annihilation of U.S. sovereignty. But it is short. Time is very, very, short indeed.
