Did you know there is now a new global governance type initiative? It is called the GLOBAL INFRASTRUCTURE INITIATVE? Javier Solana reported as a global sign of hope in his November 29th Project Syndicate article. The link supplied in his article is bad, but here is a good link to that Initiative. The project is projecting a required investment of $3 Trillion US dollars equivalent ANNUALLY. Query, how will that amount, should their initiative be "successful" be raised? Do you see any way out besides a global tax? I don't!
The leadership looks like a combination of governmental and big business allies. They undoubtedly had a lovely meeting in a posh Rio de Janeiro setting last May, 2014. The event was "by invitation only." GLOBAL INFRASTRUCTURE INITIATIVE
According to Javier Solana, the GLOBAL INFRASTRUCTURE INITIATIVE will "will create a Global Infrastructure Hub to serve as a knowledge-sharing platform for governments, the private sector, development banks, and international organizations. . . ."
McKinsey & Company, the consultant/organizer, of the event is a player in another "globalization" scheme: "the internet of things." In 2010 their Quarterly publication posited the advantages of accelerated interconnectedness:
McKinsey & Company get around. According to Huffington Post, even the Vatican has engaged them as a consultant.
Cognizant Reports has issued an on line available report on the "Internet of Things". You may obtain it from clicking here.
McKinsey & Company claims an alumni of upwards of 30,000 networked throughout the world. Not bad for a company started by accountants in Chicago, Illinois in 1926 -- at the time that the world was being prepared for a "messianic" figure named Jiddhu Krishnamurti -- a dream that did not pan out for the Theosophists and their fellow travelers. I do not yet know for certain if there were connections between the various occult networks and this firm, but I do know that many of their aims, proposed methods, and aspirations are the same. McKinsey & Company is BIG and as their website proudly proclaims:
According to a Wikipedia article on the business, it has a highly secretive culture that is "almost like a religion" among its members and adherents:When James O. McKinsey founded McKinsey in 1926, he could not have imagined the reach his small firm would eventually have. Eighty-five years later, the firm has grown into a global partnership serving two-thirds of the Fortune 1000.
A 1993 profile story in Fortune Magazine said McKinsey & Company was “the most well-known, most secretive, most high-priced, most prestigious, most consistently successful, most envied, most trusted, most disliked management consulting firm on earth.” According to BusinessWeek the firm is "ridiculed, reviled, or revered depending on one's perspective."McKinsey's culture has often been compared to religion, because of the influence, loyalty and zeal of its members. Fortune Magazine said partners talk to each other with "a sense of personal affection and admiration." An article in The News Observer said McKinsey's internal culture was "collegiate and ruthlessly competitive" and is sometimes described as arrogant. The Wall Street Journal said McKinsey is seen as “elite, loyal and secretive.” According to Reuters it has a "button-down culture" focused on “playing by the rules”. According to BusinessWeek, “some observers” say that McKinsey has started to lose touch with its founding principles and become less personal as its size has increased. The Guardian said at McKinsey “hours are long, expectations high and failure not acceptable.” Fortune and USA Today both noted that the majority of McKinsey's consultants are white men.
Well, I've just learned and plan to study more about this significant globalization initiative which might well ultimately affect both our pocketbooks and freedoms. It decidedly is "on the move" while we seem to focus on "news" more often bordering on soap operas. I'm keeping a wary eye on it. You should too.
