From Australia’s moonbat-in-chief, Greens leader Bob Brown, comes a proposal for a global parliament for the people of the Earth based on the principle of one person one vote one value.
Interesting idea. Now let’s do what Bob Brown hasn’t done, and think this through. Let’s assume for the sake of argument that this global parliament will have 1,000 members. That’s probably unworkably large but it’s a nice round number.
Now how many representatives would Australia have? About three. The European Union would have about 71 and the US about 45. Canada would have five seats. Eco-friendly politically correct Sweden would have one. North America, Europe and Oceania combined would have fewer than 200 representatives. Add South America and you could say the western world would have around 240 seats. China would have 200 and India about 172. Based on the fact that there are around 1.62 billion Muslims in the world (some sources believe that to be a considerable under-estimate) we could expect to see around 231 Muslim representatives in the global parliament. Given the results of the elections in supposedly moderate Egypt it’s fairly safe to assume we’d see a solid bloc of hardline Islamists that would have at least 150 seats, possibly a good many more. They’d outnumber of the entire representation of the EU and the US combined.
How many seats would Green candidates win? In Australia the Greens could muster less than half the votes required to win a single seat. They might win one in ten of the EU seats. Say seven seats. Let’s be generous and double that.
OK, left-wing parties that are broadly supportive of the green agenda would win a lot more seats. They might win half of the western world’s 240 seats. Say 120.
Now given that the extremist environmentalist policies favoured by Bob Brown and his Green followers really only appeal to white midde-class university-educated westerners how much support could green proposals expect to get in a world parliament? Probably about 120 votes. If a green member of this earth parliament were to put forward the kinds of draconian environmental legislation that get Bob Brown excited, how many votes would they get? The answer of course would be, 120 at the most.
And what about the social causes so dear to the hearts of people like Bob Brown? Things like homosexual marriage. How may votes would that attract in a global parliament? I suspect that a proposal to make homosexuality a world-wide criminal offence would get more votes.
In fact a world parliament would be likely to be very hostile indeed to the leftist social agenda.
If I was a radical greenie or a radical leftist a “global parliament for the people of the Earth based on the principle of one person one vote one value” would be my worst nightmare. So the question is, is Bob Brown more deluded than we thought he was? Or is he really pushing for something quite different from the democratic world government he wants us to think he supports? Is it merely window dressing for a true agenda to dramatically increase the powers of the present unelected, unaccountable, corrupt, bureaucratic horror that is the UN?
The bizarre alliance between the radical Left and extremist Islam has been greeted with a mixture of despair and amazement by intelligent observers.
The feature that has excited the most wonder has been of course the combination of hypocrisy and self-loathing exhibited by the Leftists.
The strangest element of all however is the truly astonishing inability of the Left to grasp the blindingly obvious fact that from Islam’s point of view this alliance is strictly temporary. In the short term it guarantees virtually unlimited immigration for Muslims into western countries and virtually unlimited welfare payments when they get there, so they can concentrate on planning the jihad without the annoying distraction of having to work for a living.
Once the Muslim populations of western nations reach a certain critical mass the Left will be in for a very rude shock. Leftist parties will find their support among Muslims suddenly vanishing. Muslims will turn to purely Islamic political parties along the lines of the Muslim Brotherhood and other even more extreme Islamist parties. There are already Islamic political parties in some European countries. Do leftists seriously believe that in the long term Muslims will continue to support parties that push the left-wing agendas of atheism, radical feminism, liberalisation of drug laws, abortion and gay marriage?
Leftists truly do live in a dream world.
