    The United States and the European Union have signed up to a new transatlantic economic partnership at a summit in Washington.

    The pact is designed to boost trade and investment by harmonising regulatory standards, laying the basis for a US-EU single market.


    Put simply, the architects of this emerging "house of world order" have come to recognize that Americans and others would resist "instant world government," and so they have instead pursued global governance step by step and through stealth. Some of the planks in this house of world order include the UN, the IMF, the World Bank, the EU in Europe, the planned North American Union on our side of the Atlantic, and now an agreement for a new transatlantic economic partnership between the EU and the U.S.

    And even as new planks are being added to the house of world order, already-existing planks are being strengthened or expanded — contributing to the appearance of the "booming, buzzing confusion." Consider, for instance, the European Union. It is now obvious to anyone following the news the EU has evolved into a super-national government for Europe, but that was not always the case. In fact, the EU, particularly in its earlier manifestations such as the Common Market, was sold to the unsuspecting peoples of Europe as a "free trade" deal. On this side of the Atlantic, NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Agreement) was also sold as a "free trade" deal when it was voted on by Congress more than a decade ago. Yet not only do NAFTA tribunals now issue rulings binding on America but NAFTA provides the foundation for an emerging North American Union modeled after the EU.
