An alternative news source in the UK, UK Column has been investigating Common Purpose.
As I keep trying to explain in different ways, Canadian society is like an iceberg–with many different private groups, from powerful banks to NGOs and so on, below the surface–ultimately all working for the same power. These are the ones who are really running our society and our government.
The government as we are taught to understand it is part of the tip of the iceberg. We’re trained to see government as separate from the private sphere, but it’s not. We’re trained to see the politicians as running things on our behalf, but they’re not. And we’re trained to see the “nation” and the flag even though the “leaders” and policy-makers are all globally-oriented and always signing international agreements that surrender decision-making to international bodies.
Regardless of whether they are actually the equivalent to Common Purpose, it looks like Action Canada is significant enough in itself that we should pay attention to what it doing.
In the same way we should pay some attention to the CFR–or CIC in Canada–to the IMF, to IBM, to Google, to the World Wildlife Fund, to the UN, to the Gates Foundation and the other major foundations–and to the federal and provincial governments too–and the many associations they listen to. They’re all very busy planning our lives and selling to us their unified view of the world via the controlled media.
Action Canada is Canada’s leading public policy fellowship.
Fellows are chosen from all sectors, including business, science, government, academia, and the professions. The program revolves around working conferences held across Canada, during which Fellows interact with leaders from government, industry, the media, academia, and NGOs. In addition, Fellows work in teams on policy projects that have, in past years, inspired Canadian public policy. . . .
Notice that one of the contributors works for the Canadian International Council.
One of the contributors is a Gates Cambridge scholar. Yes, that is a scholarship funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
I count 8 Rhodes scholars (original link no longer functioning: http://www.actioncanada.ca/en/index.php?s=rhodes+scholar&sbutt=Go) on this page among the 2012/2013 Fellows.
Those who have read Carroll Quigley would expect Rhodes scholars like Bill Clinton and these young people to be OUR FUTURE LEADERS.
Hey, Rhodes scholars are Oxford University. Gates scholars -> Cambridge University. England, not Canada. We’re talking world empire.
As they say on the site (http://www.actioncanada.ca/en/fellows/fellows/20102011-fellows/), “LEADERSHIP LOOKS LIKE THIS” and it means going along with the global agenda and never questioning it. One of the pictures is of the president of the Canadian Commission for UNESCO.
The motto of Action Canada is “Building Leadership for Canada’s Future”.
The government fully backs them. Action Canada is a pioneering partnership between the federal government and the private sector (http://www.actioncanada.ca/en/program/partners/).
At the bottom of the page: Action Canada is generously supported by: Canadian Heritage, that’s the Canadian government again.
“Canadian Heritage” is kind of ironic as we’re talking about all these people promoting globalism. History, for them, is only moving in one direction and you can’t criticize trade agreements and that sort of thing. That “debate” was decided already. Same with all the “security” measures and new forms of political correctness. You’re just supposed to pick one of the major parties on the fake left-right paradigm and pretend they’re different.
Never mind “theories” about what is happening. Just look at the reality. We live under a corporatist oligarchy. It even says “partnership” between private and public. Groups like this run everything. They pick the “leaders”. These are the elites, already pre-trained and pre-packaged by the long arms of resource-grubbing empire-builders like Cecil Rhodes and Bill Gates.
Where is the Empire? It’s here. It’s all around. When you hear the terms IMF, EU or “Obama says” or Financial Stability Board or “Bill Gates”, or “Rhodes Scholar”, there it is, WTO, GATT, NAFTA, NATO, G20, Climate Change, in your face, flying your flag out of the other side of its mouth.
Is it the same thing as “Common Purpose”? Maybe:
The challenge (http://www.actioncanada.ca/en/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/op-ed-2007-08-en.pdf) for political leaders will be how best to express a common vision for all of Canada and to bind together the tiles of our Canadian mosaic with common purpose. There must be two parts to this national mosaic, the tiles and the glue.
. . . These characteristics are the source of our common purpose and ultimately our common destiny. . . .
. . . Among our political leaders, whoever offers the best answers to these questions and can articulate a clear common purpose for our country deserves the opportunity to govern
Canada. . .
Ginger (http://www.actioncanada.ca/en/fellows/fellows/20042005-fellows/) and her Action Canada colleagues “are united,” she says, “with a common purpose of wanting to play a role in making Canada a better country.”
Minister Moore Announces Renewed Youth Program Funding, October 14, 2009 (http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/minister-moore-announces-renewed-youth-program-funding-october-14-2009-1059688.htm)
We firmly believe that a strong attachment to Canada unites Canadians in a common purpose and enables us to succeed as individuals and as a nation. That is why we are proud to invest $60 million in a three-pronged approach that will encourage young people to develop Canadian identity by becoming attached to Canada and involved in the shaping of its future. . . .
. . . A $3-million investment over three years in Action Canada will boost its significant private sector support to offer young Canadians a concentrated leadership program. Action Canada’s goal is to identify and nurture future leaders for Canada while promoting the active participation of young Canadians, from various disciplinary backgrounds, in the renewal of ideas and the building of our country. Participants learn and interact with current leaders in government, business, NGOs, and academia, and undertake public policy projects of significance to Canada. Action Canada develops innovative and high-quality research on key public policy issues. It fosters the creation of leadership networks spanning the diversity of the country and the development of a renewed spirit of collaboration among the public, private, and voluntary/non-governmental organization sectors. The program is open to Canadians under the age of 30. . . .
A happy little power NETWORK camping and boating together:
Action Canada Fellows form an enduring network of outstanding emerging leaders who bring finely honed leadership skills and thoughtful new policy ideas to the challenges facing our country.
Imagine (https://actioncanada.ca/) a network of young Canadians whose talents, experiences and perspectives represent the mosaic of Canada. Now imagine them connected through a premiere leadership development and public policy program that builds leadership for Canada’s future.
At the completion of the fellowship year, they join our network of outstanding leaders dedicated to the future of Canada.
