Richard N. Haass — World Order 2.0

Richard N. Haass is president of the Council on Foreign Relations, the public face of the "Masters of the Universe." What he says about is therefore significant as the public agenda of the plutocrats and technocrats.

He begins with describing the old world order as that following the Peace of Westphalia in 1648, which made national sovereignty the priority. Haas asserts that this order is no longer appropriate for a globalizing world and the new world order needs to be founded on internationalism.

Guess who wants to write the rules for international obligations of states?

Haas bemoans that this view is antithetical to Donald Trump's America First policy.

Battle brewing.
