At the United Nations, the Curious Career of Maurice Strong , By Claudia Rosett and George Russell, February 08, 2007,2933,250789,00.html

[....] Strong, now 77, is best known as the godfather of the environmental movement, who served from 1973-1975 as the founding director of the U.N. Environment Program (UNEP) in Nairobi. UNEP is now a globe-girdling organization with a yearly budget of $136 million, which claims to act as the world’s environmental conscience. [....]

Rosset is worth reading; she has done considerable investigative work on the UN, its Oil for Food corruption, Tongsun Park and Maurice Strong's part in it and related journalistic work.

End of Update

I don't recall voting for this, that is, funding studies into the possibility of world federalism. Do you? It sounds too much like a world government run by the inept UN. Check further into the funding for all these helping, do-good, activist-filled organizations and homes for ex-politicians.

Do you want Global Governance and to be taxed by the United Nations?

Empower the United Nations !

I do not have much respect for the UN, given what has been revealed about its corruption. Why do Canadian taxpayer funds go toward a World Federalist Movement and undoubtedly, if one were to dig, to its United Nations tenatacles in Canada? Do you want Global Governance and to pay taxes to the UN? Information on this was posted on Frost Hits the Rhubarb in February.

[....] Visions of a Global Citizens Movement

Orion Kriegman, author of Dawn of the Cosmopolitan: The Hope of a Global Citizens Movement, provides the most complete description to date of what a potential Global Citizens Movement might look like. In his introduction he states, “Transnational corporations, governments, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) remain powerful global actors, but all of these would be deeply influenced by a coherent, worldwide association of millions of people who call for priority to be placed on new vales of quality of life, human solidarity, and environmental sustainability.”

Kriegman distinguishes this “coherent, worldwide association of millions” from the existing fragmented social movements active in the World Social Forum. These movements tend to be issue-specific – focused on labor, environment, human rights, feminist issues, indigenous struggles, poverty, AIDS, and numerous other interrelated but “siloed” efforts. Coherence among these movements would require a reframing of their work under the rubric of the struggle for a socially just and ecologically sustainable global society and the establishment of an institutional structure to defend the rights of humanity, future generations, and the biosphere. Kriegman asserts, “The upsurge of civil society activity, in the form of NGOs and social movements, over the past few decades can be understood as an early manifestation of the latency in the global system, and at the same time this transnational activity helps deepen the latency. However, existing social movements have not found a way to effectively balance the creative tension between pluralism and coherence to provide a collective framework for theory and action. Without a shared framework, it is hard to imagine how the latent potential would coalesce into a global systemic movement. The development of a shared framework will depend on new forms of leadership to facilitate engaged dialogue inclusive of diverse voices.” [....]
