Some Statist Tinfoil For Your Reading Pleasure

It looks like a bunch of guys up in Canada are trying to create a world government through an online poll. Taken from their site:

WHY “WORLD LAW” AND “DEMOCRATIC WORLD GOVERNMENT”?

We can outlaw war!
All human conflicts can be worked out through law. We can live under law globally as easily as we do within our nations, provinces and cities.

Lower taxes globally!
“Collective security” will cost you far less than financing your nation’s defense against all other countries. Imagine if your city or town had to hire, train and equip a military force in case a nearby city or town invaded! We have “collective security” within our nations; now we need it among all nations.

Solutions for global problems!
With a globally enforced peace, we can actually defeat AIDS and poverty, get serious about everyone’s human rights, spread freedom and democracy everywhere, and build a truly sustainable future for our planet.

Oh yeah, let’s not forget their radical overconfidence. I guess the site started out in 2004. By 2006, they predicted:

…the writing will be on the wall. We expect that thousands of organizations will be collecting ballots, and people will assume that we are going to reach our goal of three billion “YES” votes on schedule (our target year is 2014).

So far, 1717 people have voted-and I’m pretty sure they haven’t tried advertising this to the national sovereignty demographic so much. The results of that would make them sad. :’(

Read on, it just gets funnier and more outlandish. This is like the Bill Clinton “New World Order” edition of TimeCube. Oh yeah, and see how many not-so-subtle disses on America you can find on the site, if you’re that bored. I’m up to three so far.

    Stuart, congratulations! I believe you have made it through two entire posts without one obscenity. I’m glad to see real progress in your writing.

    It’s no suprise that their online poll is showing mostly yes votes. Who would take the time to provide all the required personal information just to vote NO? Not I. They obviously only want to see yes responses.

    So I decided to do the poll anyways to get my no vote in. Here are my responses:

    Items marked with an asterisk * must be completed.

    * Given Name: Mike
    (no nicknames please)
    * Family Name: Yes

    * Address: A House

    * City: Near the Ocean

    * ZIP/Postal Code: 69692

    State or Province: Depression

    * Country: Fried Steak
    * Date Of Birth: 01011976
    (MMDDYYYY)
    must be 16+
    Email: NO@badidea.com
    (yours or contact)

    If you have checked “yes” or “no” on the ballot and filled out the information sheet click below to vote.

    Patronize much?

    Anyway, I’ll have to check out that FTL segment. Thanks for the post, Ian.

    I just voted NO too. It incremented the vote counter and the “yes” percentage went down…I lied about my address…Let’s nail ‘em!

    Lower taxes globally? LOL! What are these people smoking?

  • Stuart Richards

    Ian, after listening to that… I gotta ask how you were able to keep up the pretense. That was fucking HILARIOUS.

    It’s rare that we do that kind of radio, but always fun. The most interesting part was that many of our listeners didn’t catch on. They trusted us so much that they thought we were being serious!

    Here’s another one you’ll enjoy, Wiley Brooks, the founder of “Breatharianism”:

    I think I’ll start a get out the vote initiative – to bring in “no” votes. Hah!
