1.0 out of 5 stars A new dispensation for corporate interests, 28 Nov. 2013
By 
This review is from: The Meaning Of The 21st Century: A Vital Blueprint For Ensuring Our Future (Paperback)
Dr James Martin's concern for the fate of the planet and its inhabitants is commendable. The "solutions" he is suggesting to the world's problems are the exact opposite.

In this book, he makes the extraordinary claim that multinational corporations are "the only human organisation capable of achieving the complex and difficult tasks that are ahead," which is why they must take a greater role in the world's affairs. This after stating that corporations already have "more impact on people's lives than government."

What multinational corporations Dr Martin is talking about is clear from his background and the organisations he has set up. Dr Martin started his career as a computer scientist with Rockefeller-controlled IBM where he worked for nearly 20 years.

With the assistance of Rockefeller associate Bill Gates and fellow billionaire George Soros, the futurologist Dr Martin - by then a multi-millionaire in his own right - founded the Oxford Martin School (OMS) to "address the most pressing challenges and opportunities of the 21st century."

The School is run by former World Bank vice-president Ian Goldin and has an advisory council controlled by the World Economic Forum, whose participants Dr Martin praises for their alleged concern for "sustainable development" and "the future of the planet."

The World Economic Forum ("Davos set") is dominated by Rockefeller-controlled multinational corporations and associated interests like Saudi Aramco (originally a Rockefeller-Saudi joint venture), Chevron, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and the Rockefeller Foundation.

With the leaders of the global corporate community firmly behind it, the OMS has virtually taken over Oxford with a budget of millions of pounds and 38 institutes with 400 academics beavering away on corporate-friendly projects ranging from the economy to immigration.

While the problem of "shaping humanity's long-term future" is being taken care of by the School's Commission for Future Generations and associated Future of Humanity Institute, the world's economy is being fixed by George Soros' Institute for New Economic Thinking and migration is being sorted by the pro-immigration Migration Observatory and International Migration Institute.

Apart from being a member of the Rockefellers' notorious Council on Foreign Relations, Soros has a long track record as speculator and gold market manipulator who reportedly broke the Bank of England and was involved in a plot to cash in on the fall of the euro by placing large bets against the currency. Notably, he has been accused of ruining Eastern Europe's economies by hijacking their privatisation programmes after the fall of communism.

Soros' collaborator, OMS director Ian Goldin, is an immigrant from South Africa who, in his own words, has made immigration his life-long passion. His belief that open borders are "an ideal to work towards" and that large movements of immigrants are "good for the economy" has led him to announce that immigration will "define our future" and to call for more of it.

With self-appointed "problem solvers" like the above in charge of drafting the blueprint for our future, the world can look forward to its troubles getting a great deal worse rather than better.
