UN Continues Push for Global Monopoly of Violence
“Regulating small arms is a unique challenge,” UN Secretary-General António Guterres declared in a June 18 press release. “It is not simply a question of addressing Government stockpiles. Out of some 900 million small arms in the world, three quarters are in civilian hands — the majority unlicensed.”
“Controlling and regulating small arms therefore requires action that goes well beyond national security institutions,” Guterres continued. “It includes providing alternative livelihoods for former combatants, engaging with municipal governments and police, working with civil society, including grass-roots organizations and community violence reduction programmes, as well as local businesses.”
Anybody see exactly that unfolding here?
It’s not like the UN considers rights unalienable. Its Universal Declaration of Human Rights reads like a Utopian’s wish list until you get to Article 29:
“(2) In the exercise of his rights and freedoms, everyone shall be subject only to such limitations as are determined by law. . . [and] (3) These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.”
In other words, the law is what the UN or any of its despotic member regimes say it is–as is your “law-abiding” status. And, of course, there is no declaration that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
The UN Panel of Governmental Experts on Small Arms report proclaims, “All States should determine in their national laws and regulations which arms are permitted for civilian possession and the conditions under which they can be used.” So if the answer is “none” and “never,” your job is to obey.
And that not being enough, the push continues to force everyone into a “monopoly of violence.”
That’s a term coined by German political economist and sociologist Max Weber, who supported approving Article 48 into the Weimar constitution, establishing “emergency powers” to bypass Reichstag consent, and allowing Adolf Hitler’s rise to unchallenged power.
And lest anyone think the end game is control of guns, allow Guterres to disabuse you of the notion. Yeah, he wants’ em, but there’s a reason for that. Total control:
“Only through sustainable development will we be able to build just, peaceful and inclusive societies and to achieve lasting peace. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is our agreed road map for building peaceful, resilient and prosperous societies on a healthy planet. Among the 17 Goals, there is a specific target to reduce arms flows, based on improving the tracing of weapons.”
“Agreed upon”? Did you agree to anything? Anybody see any “consent of the governed” from those of us working to push back infringements and usurpations against our Constitution and Bill of Rights…?
The thing is, this is hardly new. Tyrants craving totalitarian control have plagued mankind throughout history. That’s why our Founders ordained and established a Constitution to “form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”
That’s why they mandated that “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Guterres’ absurd arrogance is hardly new. He’s merely the latest flunky for the evil, squirming globalist Philosopher Kings that would control all as if they were gods.
Treasonous domestic enemies and useful idiots working to disarm their countrymen mask their subversion as “commonsense gun safety laws.” We know that’s a lie, that they’ll never be satisfied that the next infringement is enough. “Experience hath shewn” that each incremental gain is always used as a beachhead from which to launch the next incursion. Here’s what Sen. Thomas Dodd, principal author of the Gun Control Act of 1968 (coming up on its semicentennial) had to say:
Similarly, the UN’s plotting to get your guns with the help of U.S. elites should also come as no surprise to any informed gun owner, despite their protestations that all they want to do is control “illicit” arms (and guess who gets to define what those are). Old-timers ought to remember “Freedom from War,” a plan of treason committed by the State Department in 1961, but it may be new to some younger readers. It not only cedes Weber’s “monopoly of violence” to a “U.N. Peace Force” superior to any national interests, but gets up close and personal in the “Third Stage”:
“The manufacture of armaments would be prohibited except for those of agreed types and quantities to be used by the U.N. Peace Force and those required to maintain internal order. All other armaments would be destroyed or converted to peaceful purposes.”
The operative word is “all.”
But no one is talking about taking your guns.
