Waldheim's Monster: United Nations' Ecofascist Programme
(Link to document)
By William Walter Kay
Three score and seven years ago the United Nations was founded primarily to advance the interests of English-speaking countries. Now the UN is primarily interested in conducting economic warfare on those countries. The tipping point in UN history roughly corresponds with Kurt Waldheim's tenure as Secretary-General (1972-81). This essay draws upon: the recent reportage on the UN's Global Ministerial Environmental Forum; the recently leaked Management Review of Environmental Governance within the United Nations System; the Encyclopedia of the United Nations and International Agreements; the websites of UN agencies, and other troves to sketch a portrait of the UN's environmental programs.

Kurt Waldheim was a former Brown-Shirt with an Iron Cross dangling from his lapel when he wrote a doctoral thesis deifying the Third Reich while simultaneously plotting war crimes which were actually carried out. Can you be more of a Nazi? So query: What's a guy like that doing running the UN? Answer: he's converting it into an environmental movement resource. The Stockholm Conference, the founding of UNEP, the start of the ozone hole and global warming scares, the global population control blitzes, the proliferation of multi-lateral environmental agreements, and the greening of many UN agencies, all date to his tenure. This is not to portray Waldheim as an eco-Horatio. Environmentalist appropriation of the UN slightly pre-dates his tenure. Installing Waldheim into the Secretary-General's chair was a coup for the movement and a consequence of their growing clout. No one should be so naive as to think international environmentalism's leaders were unaware of Waldheim's past, or disapproving.
There was more to Nazism than anti-Semitism and militarism. A core ingredient was indigenous-ism - romanticizing the affinity between ethnicity and geography. A contemporary manifestation of this is the "anti-colonialism" emanating from Europe and purporting to assist Amazonian Indians, Australian Aborigines, etc. This anti-colonialism is an attack on the national sovereignty of Brazil, Canada, USA, Australia and other "colonial" countries. It serves the environmental movement by undermining economic development in the hinterland of these states. Half the UN's founders were colonial states.
In 1942 the world was divided into two camps. The Axis powers controlled Continental Europe, Japan and areas of the western Pacific. The Allies' sphere was the English-speaking world, South America and part of the USSR. The United Nations was 100% lodged in the Allied sphere. The UN's purpose was to diplomatically isolate, and conduct economic warfare on, the Axis world and ultimately to impose regime changes on Germany, Japan, etc. Now the territories formerly under Axis control supply most of the money, staffing and head office locales for the UN. UN-led campaigns to suppress and retard development of the Americas and Australia, and campaigns to steer humanity away from abundant supplies of hydrocarbons, are economic warfare operations benefitting former Axis states. The socio-geographical pre-determination of fascism persists and underlies environmentalism.
Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, and UNEP were born months apart (1971-72). UNEP is the youngest and smallest of the triplets. The trio have identical ultra-green ideologies. Each are multinational in operation and globalist in outlook. They conduct joint campaigns. Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth routinely quote UNEP as an authority. Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth are integrated into UNEP's management. UNEP is every bit as much of a biased eco-activist group as is Greenpeace or Friends of the Earth. UNEP launched "global warming" BEFORE the campaign was sanctioned by the UN General Assembly. The campaign's policy goals - reducing the use of hydrocarbon fuels and expanding the world's forests - were UNEP/Greenpeace/Friends of the Earth goals BEFORE the campaign. Scientistic factoids supporting the anthropogenic global warming hypothesis were harvested AFTER the alarm was sounded; after lavish funds were made available. Few people would pay heed to global warming if it were solely Greenpeace's cause. The campaign depends on appropriation of UN imprimatur. The media acquiesces to and sustains the myth that UNEP and other UN agencies are honest brokers of scientific information with humanity's best interests at heart.
Studying UN environmentalist efforts is an education on how large and institutionalized environmentalism has become. The image persists of environmentalism as an earnest, idealist grassroots protest movement. This is a media myth. True, the movement has its shock troops, its extremists, its radical flank, but these people are an exploitable flock amidst a much larger organizational field. The modern environmental movement encompasses several hundred state bureaucracies, over a thousand intergovernmental bodies and UN agencies, and tens of thousands of non-profit societies. The movement has built a constituency in the wind and solar power industries, in the international chemical cartel, in eco-tourism, in organic farming and food distribution, in environmental law firms, and in tens of thousands of other for-profit businesses. The movement has colonized the board rooms of scores of mass media firms, hundreds of philanthropic foundations and has established beach-heads in multiple faculties in every university. In spite of this, it retains crucial features of a social movement: it represents a marginalized solidarity network grasping for power.
Hitler's ideology continues apace. A plutocracy artificially established by making the masses poor. Europe then world governance is what the eu and un are targetting. Population control, management and reduction is the ideology of CoR that has many members in all NGO organisations. Using a manufactured or real global issue to achieve their nefarious ambitions is even mentioned in their manifesto.
The very survival of the two newspapers that probably rant on more than any others against the so-called environmental 'evils' of the car, The Guardian and its Sunday equivalent, The Observer, is - wait for it - partly "dependent on second-hand car sales - [the group] owns half of the normally highly profitable Auto Trader)." Isn't that just wonderful! Think of it - Old Savonarola himself, George Monbiot, Sister Polly Toynbee, and Brother Robin Mackie are thus supported partly from the profits generated by a house journal of the petrol heads.
