Socialist International in Copenhagen: "Birth of Global Governance"



World government and world socialism. Those are the explicit goals of the Socialist International, one of the planet's most influential organizations, but one that is virtually unknown to the vast majority of Americans, since it is rarely reported on in the United States' major media.

The headline story that currently tops the home page of the Socialist International's website reports on the organization's influence and clout at the recently concluded United Nations Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark. The brief article, however, does not even begin to do justice to the Socialist International's central role, not only in pushing the current alarmism over global warming, but in actually launching and promoting the global militant environmental lobby, from 1970 to the present day.

Your correspondent not only witnessed first-hand the Socialist International (SI) at work in Copenhagen, but also witnessed the same at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), better known as the Earth Summit, in Rio de Janeiro. I wrote about that at the time ("Socializing at Rio: Socialists Run the Earth Summit," August 10, 1992), pointing out, for instance, the key role at the summit of Norwegian Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland, who was then Vice President of the Socialist International, and noting as well the prominence of other SI leaders at UNCED.
The Socialist International  was most notably represented in Copenhagen by its president, George Papandreou, who is also the current prime minister of Greece.
