World Bank comes out of the closet

September 9, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

We alerted readers several days ago to the malevolent plans of the World Bank to push for the establishment of sweat shop factories in Papua New Guinea [read more]. Now the Bank has gone public with its intentions, advertising in the media for a lawyer to draft the legislation that will allow the establishment of Special Economic Zones.

Apparently oblivious to the blatant Colonial implications and completely contemptuous of Papua New Guinea’s own democratic procedures, the World Bank is advertising for a lawyer to draft legislation for Papua New Guinea before Parliament has even debated whether such legislation is desirable or needed.

Normal process would dictate that should Parliament decide Special Economic Zones are a good idea then it would be the job of Papua New Guinea’s public service to draft a policy and subsequent legislation.

But the World Bank clearly has no time for such niceties and is happy to run a bulldozer through notions of independence and National sovereignty in its pursuit of the economic interests of the transnational corporations.

Those corporations, of course,  want duty free access to PNG resources and to process and add value to our raw materials without bothering with domestic niceties like minimum wages and health and safety laws – and they certainly don’t want to be bothered with paying any taxes.

    THE IMPACT OF CHANGE UPON PNG SOCIETY AND POLITICAL DIRECTION IS NOT JUST A RANDOM EVENT BUT A VERY WELL ORCHESTRATED ONE.
    IT HAS NOT COME DIRECTLY FROM ANY INVENTIONS BY LOCALS AS MUCH AS IT HAS ARRIVED BY DESIGN PURPOSE VIA THE VARIOUS ARMS OF THE UN AS IT SEEKS TO ORDER AND CONTROL WORLD AFFAIRS.

    THE WORLD BANK IS BUT ONE OF THE INSTRUMENTALITIES ENGAGED IN THIS ODIOUS TASK.

    AS A REFRESHER, MAY I OFFER THE FOLLOWING:

    The loss of traction by locals in the implementation of aid programs could also be illustrated by reflecting on negative aspects of the recent project debacles in Australia; ala, the roof insulation rorts and related damages much of which emanated from centralised and remote administration not unlike the scenarios in PNG. This process ultimately leads to disinterest and disaffection on the local scene but aids the systemic need for power and control by the “big-men” due to the way that developed nations interact with the all-encompassing arms of the international money business.

    Think Milton Friedman (Free-Market Economics) and reflect on all those refugees from the South and Central American nations that imploded in the 70’s and 80’s. They fled, migrated, or were driven out during a reign of socio-political meltdown resulting in; essentially, the same loss of local control, and transfer of influence to outside parties: hereafter known as GLOBALISM.

    A seminal text on the free-market economics effects on various nations is Naomi Klein’s: Shock Doctrine. The Rise Of Disaster Capitalism. (2007)
    What you describe is the outcome of that same process gradually insinuating itself upon PNG.

    A definition for many of the projects undertaken by governments around the world now in respect of those works formerly done by local bodies, might be termed: “Public- Private Partnerships.

    If you are able, view the videos below and analyse where the info there correlates with your observations.

    Hello PNGexposed,

    Interesting that they think it fit to bulldoze policy and influence politics when articles of agreement (section 10) of IBRD Article IV states and I quote:

    “….The Bank and its officers shall not interfere in the political affairs of any member; nor shall they be influenced in their decisions by the political character of the member or members concerned. Only economic considerations shall be relevant to their decisions…..”

    What a load of Bull**
    We are an independent state and should not bow down to any political pressure from outsiders……….

    God bless PNG.

    LEAKED DOCUMENT REIGNITES FAILED CLIMATE CHANGE AGENDA
    In context with the recent concern over the tactics of the World Bank in PNG projects it is alarming to see a reengagement by the UN in matters global that bear a striking similarity to happenings here.

    A UN blueprint for putting the organization back at the forefront of global governance alarmingly reveals the agenda to re-brand global warming as “overpopulation” as a means of dismantling the middle classes while using “global redistribution of wealth” and increased immigration to reinvigorate the pursuit of a one world government.

    United Nations Secretary General Ban ki-Moon and 60 of his top lieutenants met this past Labor Day at a secluded Austrian Alpine retreat in a bid to get the global warming agenda back on track after the dismal failure of Copenhagen.

    The planning paper that was handed out to delegates at the conference was subsequently leaked to Fox News, and outlines a strategy of exalting “global redistribution of wealth” as the basis of the climate change agenda.
    As was uncovered during the Copenhagen summit, the program of “global redistribution of wealth” largely centers around looting the wealth of the middle classes in richer countries through carbon taxes and then using that money to bankroll the construction of world government. As the leaked “Danish text” revealed, the money generated from consumption taxes will go directly to the World Bank, not to developing countries.

    Under the terms of this proposal, poorer countries will not simply be handed the money pillaged from richer nations, instead they will be forced to accept “green loans” in the name of combating climate change, a policy that would land the already financially devastated third world with even more debt, payable to globalist institutions such as the IMF.

    The blueprint makes it clear that the UN intends to reassert its role as the instigator and leader of a one world government, and will set about to achieve this by bypassing nation states and thwarting national sovereignty.
    The planning document also makes it clear that the UN intends to drastically expand its role as the world’s policeman, by “building a “standing justice and corrections element” to go with the semi-permanent police force — a permanent strike force to establish courts and prisons in nations where peacekeepers are stationed.”

    The paper also outlines an intention to push new economic regulatory powers to enable the organization to introduce global financial regulation.

    Secretary General Ban ki-Moon and about 60 of his top lieutenants — the top brass of the entire U.N. system — spent their Labor Day weekend (5-6 Sept’ 2010) at a remote Austrian Alpine retreat.

    Here is the link to the position papers leaked to Fox News.
