When I see Buddhists fall into the subject of “open borders” or a “Buddhism beyond borders” and other subjects like “globalizing the modern world,” a red flag goes up. Just recently Soto Zennist Brad Warner did a blog on “Securing our Borders” saying:
“So if we accept that even our most fundamental borders and boundaries are illusions, shouldn’t we, as Buddhists, also accept the idea that “making any divisions is itself an act of motivated exclusion, serving the interests of maintaining power?” It certainly sounds a bit like Buddhism or non-dualism.”
Buddhists who write this kind of stuff are really nothing more than dupes of the globalist agenda which is about absolute trade liberalization (otherwise known as free trade/FTA). Now, here is why those like George Soros and other globalists like Peter Sutherland want people to believe that sovereignty is an illusion. Borders are outdated.
To make global trade liberalization work three essential elements are required: 1) the elimination of national regulations and laws; 2) the elimination of national borders; 3) the elimination of national currencies. Without going into the history of the WTO (before that GATT), it should be obvious what has been going on since the end of WWII. It has been to sell what is, essentially, “neo-monopolism” where a cabal of multinational corporations economically run and control the world through the BIS (Bank for International Settlements), the central bank of all central banks which is accountable to no one and runs the world economy, presently.
Eventually, sovereign states with their individual cultures, economic structures and currencies must be eliminated which leaves us with a one world borderless society where the moneyed cabal run everything and the rest become little more than slave workers of nothingness. But all this leads to macro-social degeneration as predicted by none other than Karl Marx in 1848 who said:
“[T]he protective system of our day is conservative, while the free trade system is destructive. It breaks up old nationalities and pushes the antagonism of the proletariat and the bourgeoisie to the extreme point. In a word, the free trade system hastens the social revolution. It is in this revolutionary sense alone. . . . that I vote in favor of free trade."
Free trade has already led to destabilizing effects in Europe and the United States in the examples of long-term economic stagnation (“secular stagnation”) and long-term under employment (“underemployment equilibrium”). Globalism, in many respects, is a new economic experiment modeled somewhat after Russian Communism—but an experiment that is certainly doomed to fail with negative global consequences unless it can be stopped in its tracks.
Yes, there is something profoundly evil going on—you can feel it in your bones. This blog is simply meant to give the reader a little peek of what is going on behind the facade. It’s also a warning to Buddhists to think twice before they write nonsense about a borderless society. Presently, we are moving towards greater social antagonism. Ironically, the cabal who brought us the WTO after WWII inadvertently planted the seeds of its own destruction.
