The blogger Scipio has crafted one of his typically fine posts in All The World Is Their Stage. In it, he reflects on our world's socialist elite, including The One, making some interesting observations along the way, including this gem:
The grand design of all these teeming intellectuals all over the globe is to create a world system where they and their type sit at all the tables of governance, control all the levers of power and distribute all the world’s wealth. Obama sees himself at the head of this motley throng. It is obvious that these types have no particular loyalty to any particular geographic area. Obama himself has nothing particularly American about him. Search all you like but in him you will find no Jefferson or Madison. He is really a citizen of that transnational body of intellectuals that imagines the entire world as its proper stage and the rest of us as mere bit players in its grandiose drama. The members of this elite regard the entire earth as part of their rightful inheritance and desire a world government composed of themselves.
Obama we can easily grasp, but his place among the other elites and the greater pattern of the movement to socialism by most of the European countries is not something of which all Americans are aware. That said, if you have been following the de-democratization of Europe as part of that grand experiment in socialism that is the EU, then Scipio's generalizations will ring true indeed.(H/T Crusader Rabbit)
