NWO: The Red CoupGambit
Finally we are down to the wire with the New World Order, as a
contrived economic collapse aims to usher in global financial control
via a socialist-communist, corporate-controlled, command economy.
Fintan Dunne details how the subversion methodology of the KGB
is being deployed in the USA --culminating in the candidacy of
the undercover Marxist idealogoue, Barak Obama.
Twilight of the World’s Power Structures
by Buckminster Fuller
Humanity is moving ever deeper into crisis
—a crisis without precedent.
First, it is a crisis brought about by cosmic evolution, irrevocably intent
upon completely transforming omnidisintegrated humanity from a
complex of around-the-world, remotely deployed-from-one-another,
differently colored, differently credoed, differently cultured, differently
communicating, and differently competing entities into a complete
integrated, comprehensively interconsiderate, harmonious whole.
Second, we are in an unprecedented crisis because cosmic evolution is
also irrevocably intent upon making omni-integrated humanity
omnisuccessful, able to live sustainingly at an unprecedentedly higher
standard of living for all Earthians than has ever been experienced by any.
Humanity now—for the first time in history—has the realistic opportunity
to help evolution do what it is inexorably intent on doing—converting all
humanity into one harmonious world family and making that family
sustainingly, economically successful.

Is Barack Obama a Marxist Mole?
In his biography of Barack Obama, David Mendell writes about Obama's
life as a "secret smoker" and how he "went to great lengths to conceal
the habit." But what about Obama's secret political life? It turns out that
Obama's childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was a communist. In
his books, Obama admits attending "socialist conferences" and coming
into contact with Marxist literature. But he ridicules the charge of being
a "hard-core academic Marxist," which was made by his colorful and
outspoken 2004 U.S. Senate opponent, Republican Alan Keyes.....
There has been a big buzz on the blogospere since US mega-blog
Powerline picked up on evidence proving that Barack Obama was, in the
mid '90s, a member of a short-lived socialist organisation, the Chicago
New Party. Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which also endorsed
Obama that year and to which the Senator has longstanding and ongoing
ties, has also been dragged into the fray.....
Barack Obama, Danny K Davis and the Marxist New Party
When Barack Obama successfully ran for the Illinois State Senate in 1996
on the Democratic Party ticket, he was endorsed by two interrelated
organisations, Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and the Chicago
branch of the New Party.
Two groups formed the backbone of the New Party-DSA and the closely
related radical grassroots organisation the Association of Community
Organisations for Reform Now (ACORN). In some areas, there was also
some Communist Party involvement and Chicago, considerable input
from the Communist breakaway group Committees of Correspondence.
Together the New Party Marxists worked through the Democratic Party in
order to move it far leftward.
Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method. In 1985
he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working
for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project....
Camouflage is key to Alinsky-style organizing: "True revolutionaries do
not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on
suits and infiltrate the system from within.
"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the
national security objectives that we've set," said Obama on July 2.
"We've got to have a civilian national security force that's
just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."
“I will ask for your service and your active citizenship when I am
president of the United States ... this will be a central cause of my
ED: Well, you spoke before about “ideological subversion” and that’s a
phrase that I’m afraid some Americans don’t understand. When the
Soviets use the phrase “ideological subversion” what do they mean by it?
YURI: Ideological subversion is the process which is legitimate and open.
You can see it with your own eyes. All American mass media has to do is
unplug their bananas from their ears, open up their eyes, and they can
see it. It has nothing to do with espionage. I know that intelligence
gathering looks more romantic. It sells more deodorants through
advertising. That's probably why your Hollywood producers are so crazy
about James Bond types of films.
But in reality the main emphasis of the KGB is NOT in the area of
intelligence at all. According to my opinion, and the opinions of many
defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower
is spent on espionage as such. The other 85% is a slow process which we
call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological
warfare. What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality
of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is
able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending
themselves, their families, their community, and their country.
The International Monetary Fund may soon lack the money to bail out
an ever growing list of countries crumbling across Eastern Europe, Latin
America, Africa, and parts of Asia, raising concerns that it will have to
tap taxpayers in Western countries for a capital infusion or resort to
the nuclear option of printing its own money.
By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard - 27 Oct 2008
"When you tot up the countries across the region with external funding
needs, you get to $500bn or $600bn very quickly, and that blows the IMF
out of the water. The Fund may soon have to start calling on the West for
additional funds," he said.
"Right now the IMF is too small to meet the foreign currency liquidity
needs of the larger emerging economies. We're in a dangerous situation
and there is the risk of extreme moves in the markets, as we have seen
with the Brazilian real. I hope policy-makers understand how serious this
is," he said.
The nuclear option is to print money by issuing Special Drawing Rights,
in effect acting as if it were the world's central bank. This was
done briefly after the fall of the Soviet Union but has never been used
as systematic tool of policy to head off a global financial crisis.
"The IMF can in theory create liquidity like a central bank," said an
informed source. "There are a lot of ideas kicking around."
The tag team of JPMorgan as the monster and Goldman Sachs
as its harlot represent a powerful pair that is more responsible for
destroying the entire US financial system than 95% of the American
public has any awareness. The colossus of JPMorgan is a monster, a
predator, nurtured by pond scum.
The oblong usury prices have contributed mightily to the destruction of
the USEconomy itself, created bubbles, killed jobs, and wrecked savings.
Goldman Sachs is clearly the investment banking agent for the USGovt,
given the privilege of insider trading in unspeakable proportions. They
manage the Plunge Protection Team efforts to intervene in financial
markets, making America strong for freedom and liberty.
The new kid on the block is the FDIC. The Federal Deposit Insurance
Corp is steering fresh meat into the corralled JPMorgan stockyards for
slaughterhouse feeding. The label of harlot might be too kind, especially
from the perspective of senior bond holders. But JPMorgan requires fresh
meat (capital) periodically, thus making America strong for freedom and
liberty. Nevermind the fires caused after its hearty meals and flatulence.
This article discusses the JPMorgan monster, its behavior,
and teeth revealed.
The representatives of the Six Nations (Haudenosaunee or Iroquois) are offered full scholarships at William and Mary for six of their young men. Out of politeness, the Iroquois wait until the following day to reply. The Iroquois then turn the offer down and present a generous counter offer.
"But you, who are wise, must know that different nations have different Conceptions of things; and you will therefore not take it amiss, if our Ideas of this kind of Education happen not to be the same with yours. We have had some Experience of it; Several of our young People were formerly brought up at the Colleges of the Northern Provinces; they were instructed in all your Sciences; but, when they came back to us, they were bad Runners, ignorant of every means of living in the Woods, unable to bear either Cold or Hunger, knew neither how to build a Cabin, take a Deer, or kill an Enemy, spoke our Language imperfectly, were therefore neither fit for Hunters, Warriors, nor Counsellors; they were totally good for nothing. We are however not the less oblig'd by your kind Offer, tho' we decline accepting it; and, to show our grateful Sense of it, if the Gentlemen of Virginia will send us a Dozen of their Sons, we will take great Care of their Education, instruct them in all we know, and make Men of them."
Look at me! See if I am poor, or my people, either. The whites may get me at last, as you say, but I will have good times till then. You are fools to make yourselves slaves to a piece of fat bacon, some hard-tack, and a little sugar and coffee.
I had a friend listening to the audio along with me here at work. She grew increasingly frustrated with what she termed as "negativity" in the audio. I explained to her that it was necessary to understand the deception first in order to reject those who promote this deception and find a another way. She saw this as anarchist and claimed that "people (read: redneck racist republicans) in Oklahoma couldn't take care of themselves" and need government, or they won't be able to "build roads, educate their children, provide social services, etc".
The left are ready for Obama and the NWO. They can't wait. Personal freedom means nothing to them, they have already accepted their drudgery and willingly wait in line for the soma. "Another way? Get back in line."

Senior black Republican warns
party could lose power until 2020
By Alex Spillius in Washington - 29 Oct 2008
A senior black Republican has warned his party faces more than a
decade in the wilderness.... Michael Steele, a rising star in the party
and one of its most prominent African Americans, admitted it "will
get hammered" next week in Congressional races.
"We could very well be looking at a situation where we don't get it back
by 2016 or even 2020," said Mr Steele. "So we could be looking at
12 years out like the Tories.....
Mr Steele is likely to be involved heavily in reviving the party, which lost
control of both the House of Representatives and Senate in the 2006
midterm elections and is set to see the Democratic majority grow in both
chambers next week, when all 435 House seats and 30 senate seats are
up for grabs.
In the senate the Democrats could win 60 seats or more, the vital
filibuster-proof majority that would reduce Republicans to the sort
of ineffective opposition status suffered by the Conservatives in 1997
after Tony Blair's first landslide.....
Mr Steele said the first challenge for the Republicans was to admit that
their demise was all of their own making. (Make that the NWO's making)
Like Margaret Thatcher and the Tories, Republicans dominated Congress
(though not always the White House) through the 1980s and 1990s,
running as the party of low taxes, fiscal control and small government.
But after too long in power the party lost its way. "After George W Bush
was elected we became the party of big government," said Mr Steele.
"It's anathema to grow government by 40 per cent, as we have,
and to grow a $10 trillion deficit, as we have. No wonder people look at us
cockeyed now when we talk about lower taxes and small government."
Meanwhile, read the reality emerging in Britain, which reveals that the
tax plans of both candidates are a total deception. The rolling Bailout
and meltdown means taxes will soar. And if government grew by 40%
under a Republican, just guess how much it will grow under Obama.

Higher taxes inevitable, Alistair Darling signals
By Andrew Porter and James Kirkup - 29 Oct 2008
Higher taxes and spending cuts are inevitable after the next election
because of Gordon Brown's decision to borrow his way out of the
economic crisis, Alistair Darling signalled last night.
Admitting that tax revenues are plummeting as Britain slides into a
recession, the Darling swept aside Mr Brown's fiscal rules to allow him
to borrow billions more to fund public spending during the downturn.
The UK, as well as other countries, is moving into recession," Mr Darling
said, insisting that in the short term, borrowing to spend was necessary to
"support the wider economy."
But once the current crisis has passed, he said, the Government will
have to "live within its means" and return the public finances to balance.
That sets the scene for higher taxes and lower spending in the
Mr Darling told a City audience: "We can boost the economy only because
we have built a foundation of sustainable public finances Â because
governments everywhere must live within their means, and I will ensure
that we do this in the medium-term.
"People should be in no doubt that Government will take the decisions
necessary, to ensure sustainability in the medium term. To return
borrowing and debt to a sustainable level - once these shocks have
worked through - just as we have in the past."
Mr Darling's pledge that the Government will "live within its means"
represents a change of tone from the Chancellor.
Having recently pledged to follow the path of John Maynard Keynes, he is
now also invoking Margaret Thatcher, who summed up her economic
philosophy in her 1981 declaration: "Live within your means."....
Trying to reassure the markets, Mr Darling said that he will use the Pre-
Budget Report next month to show how he intends to keep public finances
"on a sustainable path."....
Here the REALITY of the NWO's
ongoing plans and actions.
The Crack-Up Boom (Part XI)
28 October 2008 - Ty Andros, Managed Futures & Alternative Investment Specialist
We are nearing the first crescendo of the unfolding Crack-up Boom....
Incomes are COLLAPSING throughout the G7 and much of the world.
The finest assets on the planet are about to land into NEW hands as their
current owners were, as Warren Buffet puts it, “swimming naked when
the tide went out”, and now they will pay the ultimate price of
surrendering their most valuable possessions and businesses for pennies
on the dollar.
Make no mistake, it has been done intentionally by the banking cartels
which own and control the Federal Reserve and have done this according
to a well worn playbook. That the public is REPLACING worthless coupons,
called G7 currencies, with their own future earnings is “right by the
playbook”, for to them money is easily replaced by the stroke of a
keyboard. Even King Midas would have been jealous.
Since the beginning of September, up to over 7 trillion dollars, Pounds,
Euros, Swiss Francs, Aussie Dollars, Korean Won, etc. have been printed
out of thin air and the bill for them has been sent to you and your
Perpetual slavery of inextinguishable debt brought to you by your public
servants and their partners in the international banking cartels. When
crisis appears, you are in the most danger you can imagine and this time
is no different, as they use FEAR (false evidence appearing real) to “save”
you from their MALFEASANCE and corruption.
This current crisis was manufactured in Washington DC and its BIGGEST
campaign supporters on WALL STREET. Even today after all the losses,
the greatest money being spent in the elections which loom are from
WALL STREET and the commercial banks. The economic rescue plan is
none of the sort. It is a rolling up of the banking system by the public
serpents and the banking industries they are rescuing.
The idea that people can’t survive unless they can BORROW money is
obscene and nothing less then modern day serfdom. They have placed
the public out on a limb to which only they hold the solution, and
what is that: BORROW MORE MONEY, go further out on the limb.
Virtually the entire public is out on this limb. With the banking industry
putting itself in the position of saying BORROW more or we will saw it off
and down you will go. People make terrible choices when faced with this,
and in this case they are blaming the system rather then those who run
and operate it.
Who are they? They are public servants and the banking elites. Why do
they insist on lending to the POOR? Why to control them of course, and
create crisis which allows them to run amok at the impoverished public’s
behest. It’s called supporting the devil.
Do you know why politicians, the main stream press and bankers HATE
Capitalism? Because Capitalism is the road to individual freedom. It is the
road to “more for less” of everything you consume, it is the road to rising
middle classes, it is the road to your children having a better life than you
No better way to debauch Capitalism than to debase the currency as
getting ahead becomes impossible, they then deflect the blame to culprits
other then themselves. It is how they have destroyed you by destroying
the conditions for entrepreneurs and small business owners to rise up and
destroy entrenched big businesses and crony capitalists who have bought
off the politicians who always stand for “less of everything for more
money”. The G7 is about to become another casualty of these would-be
fascist dictators and socialists.
The political classes are in ascension into dictatorships; the next Hitler
looms directly ahead as the public is impoverished through the coming
hyperinflation and collapsing wealth creation, personal incomes and
business and economic output. As economic output falls the printing
presses and credit creation will substitute with the bill sent to YOU!
The G7 publics are functionally illiterate. They can read and write but
cannot think as they are ignorant of history, logic and common sense
having never been taught these things by the PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
George Orwell’s 1984 and ANIMAL FARM has ARRIVED.
This is a sad fact, but for prepared investors it is the greatest opportunity
in history as the greatest transfer of wealth in history unfolds, from those
that hold their wealth in paper to those that don’t. Most of the biggest
money in the world is caught OFFSIDES as the bankers repossess the
REAL assets their owners’ default on.
The big money of the world has bought the bonds and both parties will be
left BROKE and then the G7 central banks print the money, issue bonds to
the respective G7 governments to SAVE you and the financial system but
putting the public in hock for the bill (perpetual inextinguishable debt).
The public are the patsies and the perpetrators in the banking systems
and respective governments are insidious, immoral and despicable,
consumed by greed and the desire for power over others......
See the megaphone formation? It is called a Wolf Wave. We are at a
fairly good level of profits now. But it projects a nuclear winter in
corporate profits dead ahead.
From Record highs never seen in fifty years, to record lows also not seen
in the same period, below the lows of 2001-2002. This chart is a
testament to how fiat money and credit creation has made steady growth
and economic stewardship become more and more unmanageable over a
long period of time, it is clear that monetary policy is also following this
wolf wave pattern, either too hot or too cold.
Politicians (and their “something for nothing” constituents) in the western
world see these enormous profits and are set to attack the creators and
holders of this wealth, they want the money and will put in place new
taxes and entitlement mandates to claw back this gusher of wealth,
thereby accelerating the downside of this wave. We all want business
cycles that cleanse past excesses but the up and downs are now out of
control, there is no consistency. No orderly form to the business and
economic cycles, everything now is either booming or busting.

FINTAN OHHHH FINTAN
This is the second time I am trying to write something here
That is because I was trying to put my own two cents/pence here
There is no need for me to do so right now
You have "Hit the Nail on the Head"
I am so numb right now from all of this
I will leave with the facts you have presented
The people are ignorant to history and we may once again enter a period of time where the people will once again pay to their detriment.
And once again after time we all may move forward.
Lets all hope hope we may choose a different path next time.
Best Regards People of BFN,
I will be reading and listening,

This is now one of my favorite newsclips from BFN, great damned job Fintan. It is so damned frustrating living among those who are just so psyop'd that it seems that there is absolutely no hope lol. Which points out Bezmenov's point concerning the brainwashing of a particular generation being pretty much incurable lol. I'm still dissecting this great and informative audio piece. Great work .
You can resist all you like...in the end though you will come to accept the new age messiah as your savior and guru.
Wake up and smell the hopeium dude!
Seriously though, Obama as a new Stalin seems a little strained to me.
Obama is just a cynical, self serving, corrupt yuppie looking to satisfy his own ego, make bunch of money and help his friends in the financial services sector protect their assets.
He's Bill Clinton in blackface.
Bill was another youthful "left radical" who traded in his copy of Mao's 'Little Red Book' for a copy of 'Atlas Shrugged' and went on to "feel our pain" (and inflicted some more pain on us for good measure).
Obama will be the happy face of crushing oppression. If it "took Nixon to go to China" then I think it will take an Obama to turn the US into China. Maybe that was your point?

It might have served just as well, or even better, to pop up a picture
of Hu Jintao there. The dawn of a totalitarian state is the underlying idea.
Obama would still be shit-stirring in the ghetto, not playing off an autocue
with meaningless scripted oratory for the masses, if he hadn't been plucked
out of obscurity by the CFR to front up for Corporate Capital-ommunism.
Big Pharma, Big Finance, and all Monopolists are poised to break out
the chanpagne and already rubbing their hands in glee.
Obama's 'cult-of-personality' is a cliche of dictatorial populism.
But it's not Obama-the-Red that is important.
It's the agenda
-leading inoxerably to this:
A democratic supermajority LOOMS as people are desperate for someone
to SAVE them! And they are turning to the people who CAUSED it.
Incomes are being EATEN alive, personal, corporate, state, municipal,
and, at the same time, NOMINAL asset values are being destroyed as
You shall soon see a monthly job report with 400 to 500 thousand lost
jobs, assuming they don’t HIDE the ugly TRUTH of business and
employment in America. But rest assured, the G7 is in the boat with us.
Everybody is scrambling for the “financial” lifeboats, but just as the
Titanic was short of them so are the G7 economies. Things will soon get
vicious as those who believe in PAPER money are DESTROYED, and their
former wealth falls into the hands of the same culprits that perpetrated it
then. Majorities of the G7 no longer “produce more then they consume”
and they are headed for the poorhouse and bankruptcy; courtesy of G7
public servants and central banks.
EVERYTHING that creates wealth, produces more then it consumes, as
well as savings, are about to come under withering attacks. SO THERE
WILL BE LESS AND LESS of it. Misery spread in ever widening circles.
Everyday low prices at WALMART are about to be redistributed to run
amok UNIONS who serve no one but themselves. Massive hyperinflation
to pay for it as wealth creation FAILS and is substituted with government
imposed socialism with politicians deciding who gets what....
"I think at this point there needs to be a focus on an immediate increase
in spending and I think this is a time when deficit fear has to take a
second seat . . . I believe later on there should be tax increases.
-- Barney Frank, October 20, 2008
All of this to SAVE you. More “power and money” for them and less for
you; inflation and deficits which you, your employers and children must
pay for. Stealth taxes on your paper money “while it sits in the bank” and
they inflate its value away through FIAT money and credit creation.
Take a look at money creation on the most basic levels which is HIGH
POWERED, as it is the fuel of the fractional banking systems of the G7:
UP 38% year over year and almost triple the size of any monetary
expansion since 1985; and you haven’t seen ANYTHING yet.
This is the face of FUTURE inflation. Add to this the HUGE expansion of
government to save and provide for you, where $1.00 goes in and .10
cents of goods or services comes out; the rest goes to line the pockets of
their CAMPAIGN contributors and the government enforcers they have
SPAWNED in leviathan government.
The collapse in incomes has just begun to unfold. Since wealth creation
and income is COLLAPSING, fiat money and credit creation MUST rise to
FILL the gap. When the socialist dictators take the reigns of power, put
your hand on your wallets as it shrinks without them even putting a hand
on it. They will steal your money to “spread the wealth”. The hardest hit
will be the ones that VOTED them into power with the PRINTING press.
The money required to save the G7 financial systems and bloated state
and municipal sectors, insurance companies and soon general
conglomerates such as GE, and NATIONAL champions in the G7
will be at least 5 times what has been CREATED to date.....
The greatest REFLATION in history is in front of us as they will do as all
have done before them in a fiat currency financial system: They will print
the money. As Public Serpents, er servants try to save what can’t be
saved the next great depression will unfold except it will briefly be
deflationary then will become hyperinflationary.

Common Purpose operates in France, Germany, Ghana, Hungary, India, Ireland, Netherlands, South Africa, Sweden and UK, and is currently developing its activities in two more countries.
Common Purpose is an organisation that trains “leaders”. These “leaders” have to be nominated to take part in their training courses and applications are vetted. The training course trains the “leaders” on how to “lead beyond their authority, beyond their direct circle of control“.
Their “vision” contains the following:
For a democracy to be strong, it needs an active civil society, in which citizens are both informed and connected. Common Purpose’s vision is that we can improve the way society works by increasing the number of informed and engaged individuals who are actively involved in the future of the areas in which they live and work.
The leaders of this civil society are likely to be leaders already within their own areas: companies, hospitals, communities. But they need to see themselves as leaders of society too - and use their talents accordingly.
So, what does “lead beyond their authority” mean? Reading their website and translating it into plain English, the objective seems to be to train business leaders to take over local government - a process that’s already started. Regional Development Agencies, City Regions, Regional Assemblies, Regional Observatories, they are all dominated by business. Closer to home for me, the recently-evicted Liebour administration in Telford & Wrekin set up a limited company to take care of regeneration and investment in the borough. There are 11 board members, only 2 of which are from the council and only one of them was elected. The other 9 are “leaders” - company chief executives and directors, the regional development agency, the Learning & Skills Council, Wolverhampton University, Chamber of Commerce. The pattern is repeated throughout the unelected quangocracy.
UK Indymedia has a list with some of Common Purpose’s clients. They include police forces, the Scottish Executive, schools and universities, councils, churches, newspapers, prisons, government departments and some big household names. The founder of Common Purpose, Julia Middleton, was John Prescott’s head of personnel selection when he was Deputy Prime Minister and creating the regional assemblies - the same regional assemblies that are obsessed with the business agenda.
Phil Davies, MP for Shipley, asked questions in Parliament on spending on Common Purpose:
* The DWP spent £240k on Common Purpose between 2002 and 2007
* The Department for Communities and Local Government has given £40k to Common Purpose for “preventing extremism” since June 2007
* The Department for Children, Schools and Families (under its old name of DfES) spent £51,700 on Common Purpose in 2004 and 2005 and Common Purpose has the use of an office inside the Department for Children, Schools and Families at Sheffield
* DEFRA apparently spent £658 on Common Purpose since June 2001 but the courses cost thousands and there’s a cop-out in the answer saying that it’s from centrally-held records only (DEFRA operates regionally)
* DCLG has spent £307k on Common Purpose since 2002
* The Department for Health spent £35,242 between 2003 and 2008 on Common Purpose
* The Home Office spent £33,688 on Common Purpose training and gave £36,500 in grants to Common Purpose between 2002 and 2007
* The Duchy of Lancaster spent £5,688 on Common Purpose in 2002-04
* The Department for Transport spend £19,676 from 2005 to present and is still spending
* The Treasury has spent £20,625 on Common Purpose since 2002
* The Department for Culture, Media and Sport spent £8,460 in 2002 on Common Purpose for 2 employees
* The Foreign Office paid £3,750 in 2003-04 for one senior official to attend a Common Purpose course
* The Department for International Development spent £181,333 helping Common Purpose establish itself in South Africa.
* The Department for Constitutional Affairs doesn’t hold information on how much they have spent on Common Pupose as they made the decision to spend on Common Purpose at a regional level
* The Northern Ireland Office spent £4,395 on Common Purpose in 2006/07
* The Ministry of Defence spent £308,525 on Common Purpose between 2002 and 2007
The phrase “common purpose” appears a disturbing amount of times in government speeches. As does the word “connecting” in apparently meaningless context - this is part of Common Purpose’s newspeak. The EU, of course, operates on a policy of “common purpose”.
PJC Journal has discovered that Common Purpose even has its own reserved network on the internet, something that is normally the reserve of national registrars and large registrars.
The NHS in the East Midlands is actively recruiting for Common Purpose, as is Oxford Said Business School.
Renew Northwest, the Regional Development Agency has already booked up a Common Purpose programme (at taxpayers expense of course) for 2008.
Common Purpose operates Chatham House rules at its meetings meaning there are no minutes, no records of attendees and nobody talks about what happens at them. They are, effectively, a secret society along the lines of the Masons. They certainly have a lot in common with the Masons apart from the charitable donations which, to the best of my knowledge, Common Purpose have no truck with. And, of course, membership of the masons requires a disclosure on a register of interest if you are a Councillor or MP.
There is something very sinister about this organisation and something very wrong about a “common purpose” being instilled into the nation’s “leaders”. I don’t want a civil society run by the business community.
Demos is a think tank based in the United Kingdom. It was founded in 1993 by former Marxism Today editor Martin Jacques, and Geoff Mulgan, who became its first director.
