Tony Blair sets out his plans for imperialism's future.
Tony Blair seems to be trying to ensure that his view of the way that the world should be ordered becomes the great power view. He argues that "progressive pre-emption" should be the order of the day, and to help this along the United Nations' Security Council should be expanded to 25 members, none of whom would have a power of veto. He further believes that the post of Secretary General should be far more powerful than at present.
This has been taken as a sign that Blair wants the post for himself, but a more likely explanation is that he sees himself as the father figure of a new, globalist order, where it would be much easier to obtain the Security Council's "consent for future military aggressions".
It looks to this writer like a recipe for disaster. If Blair got his way the U.N. would probably split, with the bulk of the Third World going off, possibly with Russia and China in tow, to form a new international body that had the concept of state sovereignty at its root. The globalists would be left with Western Europe, Australia and North America: hardly a decent blueprint for peace on earth and goodwill towards men.
