The United Nations continues advancing a global taxation agenda. Americans who believe in national sovereignty are indebted to Clifford Kincaid for his diligent monitoring of an important issue that “mainstream” news media long has ignored. The quotations which Kincaid has compiled in a publication issued recently by his organization, America’s Survival, A CHRONOLOGY: UN CAMPAIGN FOR GLOBAL TAXES ON VERGE OF SUCCESS, clearly demonstrate the deepest desire of UN bureaucrats – to pick our pockets. Wasting the regular contributions made by our Government and others is simply not sufficient to sate their appetite for money.

The UN rarely expresses its intention in such crass terms, preferring the more diplomatic euphemism “new and innovative sources of funding” to mask intent.

The drive to establish international sources of tax revenue extends to at least the mid-1990s, when the World Summit for Social Development was held. Chapter 5 of the report from that Summit declares, “Nothing short of a renewed and massive political will at the national and international levels to invest in people and their well-being will achieve the objectives of social development.” The Chapter includes this call to develop a revenue stream for projects aimed at improving the developing world:

    “Developing innovative sources of funding, both public and private, for social programmes, and creating a supportive environment for the mobilization of resources by civil society for social development, including beneficiary contributions and individual voluntary contributions.”

Kincaid in 1995 issued his own book, GLOBAL BONDAGE: THE U.N. PLAN TO RULE THE WORLD, which casts a hard look at the objectives of the UN. Kincaid wrote:

    “Described in the press as just a worthwhile event designed to eradicate poverty, the UN Development Program (UNDP) – the main sponsor – has issued a ‘Human Development Report’ openly calling for ‘world government’ in a featured article written by Nobel Prize-winning economist Jan Tinbergen, who declared, ‘Mankind’s problems can no longer be solved by national governments. What is needed is a World Government. This can best be achieved by strengthening the United Nations system.’”
