Just in case there is any doubt left that the United Nations does in fact want to rule the world ... there's this, from Eagle Forum:
"The United Nations is meeting in Qatar to negotiate a “complete transformation of the economic structure of the world,” explained Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) at a Monday press conference. “What is occurring here, not just in Doha, but in the whole climate change process is the complete transformation of the economic structure of the world. It should happen much quicker, but it cannot happen overnight,” she added.
True, the U.N. didn't say it wanted a "complete transformation" of the entire world, but rather only a "complete transformation of the economic structure" of the entire world. So maybe the global body is not so power-hungry after all?
Except that whoever controls the purse strings controls the agenda. If the U.N. controls the world economy, it's pretty much the same as saying the U.N. controls the world's agenda, policies, politics and economies.
Figueres added that the U.N. is moving toward a Kyoto-type world climate change treaty with mandated 16.5 percent reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by 2015, with implementation by 2020. For America, this speedy push for more global environmental regulation is not good news, given the political leanings of the White House and the Senate, the two entities that constitutionally control the fate of treaties.
