    Globalists & Nationalists: Who Owns the Future?
    Pat Buchanan • March 13, 2018 • 900 Words • 22 Comments •

    Robert Bartley, the late editorial page editor of The Wall Street Journal, was a free trade zealot who for decades championed a five-word amendment to the Constitution: “There shall be open borders.”

    Bartley accepted what the erasure of America’s borders and an endless influx or foreign peoples and goods would mean for his country.

    Said Bartley, “I think the nation-state is finished.”

    His vision and ideology had a long pedigree.

    This free trade, open borders cult first flowered in 18th-century Britain. The St. Paul of this post-Christian faith was Richard Cobden, who mesmerized elites with the grandeur of his vision and the power of his rhetoric.

    In Free Trade Hall in Manchester, Jan. 15, 1846, the crowd was so immense the seats had to be removed. There, Cobden thundered:

    “I look farther; I see in the Free Trade principle that which shall act on the moral world as the principle of gravitation in the universe — drawing men together, thrusting aside the antagonisms of race, and creed, and language, and uniting us in the bonds of eternal peace.”

    Britain converted to this utopian faith and threw open her markets to the world. Across the Atlantic, however, another system, that would be known as the “American System,” had been embraced.

    The second bill signed by President Washington was the Tariff Act of 1789. Said the Founding Father of his country in his first address to Congress: “A free people … should promote such manufactures as tend to make them independent on others for essential, particularly military supplies.”

    In his 1791 “Report on Manufactures,” Alexander Hamilton wrote, “Every nation ought to endeavor to possess within itself all the essentials of national supply. These comprise the means of subsistence, habitat, clothing and defence.”
    This was wisdom born of experience.

    At Yorktown, Americans had to rely on French muskets and ships to win their independence. They were determined to erect a system that would end our reliance on Europe for the necessities of our national life, and establish new bonds of mutual dependency — among Americans.

    Britain’s folly became manifest in World War I, as a self-reliant America stayed out, while selling to an import-dependent England the food, supplies and arms she needed to survive but could not produce.

    America’s own first major steps toward free trade, open borders and globalism came with JFK’s Trade Expansion Act and LBJ’s Immigration Act of 1965.

    By the end of the Cold War, however, a reaction had set in, and a great awakening begun. U.S. trade deficits in goods were surging into the hundreds of billions, and more than a million legal and illegal immigrants were flooding in yearly, visibly altering the character of the country.

    Americans were coming to realize that free trade was gutting the nation’s manufacturing base and open borders meant losing the country in which they grew up. And on this earth there is no greater loss.

    The new resistance of Western man to the globalist agenda is now everywhere manifest.

    We see it in Trump’s hostility to NAFTA, his tariffs, his border wall.

    We see it in England’s declaration of independence from the EU in Brexit. We see it in the political triumphs of Polish, Hungarian and Czech nationalists, in anti-EU parties rising across Europe, in the secessionist movements in Scotland and Catalonia and Ukraine, and in the admiration for Russian nationalist Vladimir Putin.

    Europeans have begun to see themselves as indigenous peoples whose Old Continent is mortally imperiled by the hundreds of millions of invaders wading across the Med and desperate come and occupy their homelands.

    Who owns the future? Who will decide the fate of the West?

    The problem of the internationalists is that the vision they have on offer — a world of free trade, open borders and global government — are constructs of the mind that do not engage the heart.

    Men will fight for family, faith and country. But how many will lay down their lives for pluralism and diversity?

    Who will fight and die for the Eurozone and EU?

    On Aug. 4, 1914, the anti-militarist German Social Democrats, the oldest and greatest socialist party in Europe, voted the credits needed for the Kaiser to wage war on France and Russia. With the German army on the march, the German socialists were Germans first.

    Patriotism trumps ideology.

    In “Present at the Creation,” Dean Acheson wrote of the postwar world and institutions born in the years he served FDR and Truman in the Department of State: The U.N., IMF, World Bank, Marshall Plan, and with the split between East and West, NATO.

    We are present now at the end of all that.

    And our transnational elites have a seemingly insoluble problem.

    To rising millions in the West, the open borders and free trade globalism they cherish and champion is not a glorious future, but an existential threat to the sovereignty, independence and identity of the countries they love. And they will not go gentle into that good night.

    Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of a new book, “Nixon’s White House Wars: The Battles That Made and Broke a President and Divided America Forever.”

    One of the more important essays I've ever posted, and not one bit of discussion and so few views?

    It is a terrific read- thanks for posting.

    Yep. America exported inflation, globalists got rich on the debt and Americans benefited with cheaper goods.

    The trade-off was Americans no longer had real money nor a manufacturing base.

    The new resistance of Western man to the globalist agenda is now everywhere manifest.
    The globalist usurpation of the USofA has been a long and planned process. The swamp really is deep.

    Remember, the swamp consists of;

    -Hollywood
    -The MSM
    -The Federal Reserve

    To truly resist the globalist agenda- those entities must be eradicated. See sig....
    "whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness"

    Agreed, in a nutshell, the battle front is nationalism, verses globalism. Sovereingty or slavery. It's nothing short of freedom or chains.
    International law is the order of the day, good bye Constitution, Bill of Rights, Natural law. Globalism means one world religion. Which means, selling your soul for the company man.

    It's as simple as that. We are seeing a lot of old men in positions of great power fomenting the change, prior to their deaths....ego's in action. To their demise. But not to be taken lightly, they wield great power.

    Buchanon has always had a good grip on reality imho. Boils the soup down to the essentials. Thanks for posting this.

    Way back when I was still working and becoming aware of the pernicious nature of the globalist philosophy, it seemed to me that the ultimate resolution of the globalist push would be between globalism and tribalism. I didn't think the nation-state as a political construct could survive the depredations of globalism.

    I still don't - and I'm still pulling for tribalism.

    Hillery, Obama and the rest of that team are still alive and influential through threats and money.
