National Sovereignty or Global Governance?

This is an interesting lecture given by American political analyst John Fonte, director of the Center for American Common Culture at the Hudson Institute, in the Danube Institute and it is discussing the issue of national sovereignty in the 21st century.

The Danube Institute is an independent think-tank in Budapest, “established  for intellectual debate between conservatives and classical liberals and their democratic opponents in Central Europe”.

Here is a very interesting interview (unfortunately in Hungarian) with John O’Sullivan,  the executing manager of DI, once a special councillor to British prime minister Margaret Thatcher and editor of British and US conservative newspapers, and DI deputy manager Gerald Frost.   Please stay tuned because I’m going to review it in a later post.

    Great! Thanks for presenting Leto. John Fonte was erudite and brought home his points well as it relates to the growing Global sovereignty grab by the non elected. Those who would chose the high minded intellectual to to steal their freedom and his nations sovereignty is a fool and yet the line is long with them. Their reading of history is very different than mine. Their take on human nature left to its own devices with out checks and balances is dangerously naive. Not unlike Mr. Chamberlain, who announced peace with Hitler a short time before he swallowed up your part of Europe.
    My concern in John’s comments regarding the Globalist : “Acelease Heal” is that in my opinion it is a trap for those who want the Globalist power base to die and go away. By demanding democratic votes by member states elected officials to validate the Globalist non elected bodies interpretations of treaties approved years ago, but being “interpreted” (over stepping historical meaning- creating whole cloth out of thin air) in light of their courts opinion: his examples England’s law banning Felons voting or Slovenia penalized for encouraging mothers to stay home. No by demanding a democratic veto of these intellectual dictators you validate their superiority and the slippery slope is all down hill from there. They would see it as the win validating their position and sovereignty and start marginalizing the elected groups using their allies inside government, media and the educational community Probably is anyway but its a worthy fight for a just cause. .
