World government is officially here.
With the click of a gavel, Obama became "the first American president to preside over a Security Council summit" thus marking the moment when America officially abandoned its sovereignty, prostrating itself to a world body representing every freedom hating tin-pot dictatorship in the world.
The details of this meeting are not relevant. The fact that an American president now overtly sanctions the legitimacy of this body and subordinates American interests to its policies, in principle, means that the United States government has ceded its Constitutional authority to a global governmental organization.
The loss of American sovereignty is a direct result of the modern philosophical assault on objectivity. Obama seeks to operate under the auspices of organizations like the United Nations because he rejects the idea that America has any objective moral authority in the world. This is because Obama rejects the idea of objective morality. He would ask: "who is the United States to tell other countries what to do?" Asserting America's interests requires a commitment to the principle that freedom and individual rights are objectively better than slavery and dictatorship. To the moral relativist, no culture is superior to any other.
If one has no objective principles to guide his actions, he must turn to a group. He must seek only compromise and consensus. Such an approach necessitates a rejection of "unilateralism":
Mr Obama proclaimed a sharp break with the previous US administration, acknowledging perceived American unilateralism had fed skepticism and distrust of his country.
What's ironic about that statement is that "trust" depends on one's willingness to commit to a plan of action. If one is principled, it becomes perfectly obvious how they will react to any situation. For example, if a country holds firm to a policy of not negotiating with terrorists, then any would-be terrorist knows their tactics are futile. In other words, an approach in which one is willing to act on principle despite the objections of others or regardless of its perceived popularity could not result in "skepticism" or "distrust." Such an approach results in certainty in the minds of your allies and enemies. Only an unprincipled, pragmatic approach based on the pursuit of short run objectives that may or may not conflict with longer term goals could cause capricious, contradictory policies. Only this approach could feed skepticism and distrust.
The nations of the world recognize that Obama is one of them. Not only does he agree that America should feel guilty for its successes, but it should actively work to level the playing field by sacrificing itself. Publicly, other nations welcome Obama's cosmopolitan attitude, but privately they know they can exploit his weaknesses.
America's actions over the past decades have caused our enemies to regard us as a paper tiger. In other words, despite hawkish rhetoric, our past administrations' unwillingness to identify our enemies and persecute total war has emboldened America's enemies around the world. However, past administrations at least felt a need to pay lip service to a strong defense even if their actions belied their words. Obama has taken this a step further. His policy of overt appeasement, apology, and surrender of our sovereignty to foreign diplomats has taken the tiger out of paper tiger. Evidently,
as Obama left the Security Council chamber, he told the Associated Press: "It was an excellent day."
I can objectively and confidently say on behalf of anyone who seeks to subjugate individual rights and excise the last vestiges of spirit from those who look to the United States as a beacon of moral certitude and a symbol of freedom - it certainly was.
