WASHINGTON – A powerful think tank chaired by former Sen. Sam Nunn and guided by trustees including Richard Armitage, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Harold Brown, William Cohen and Henry Kissinger, is in the final stages of preparing a report to the White House and U.S. Congress on the benefits of integrating the U.S., Mexico and Canada into one political, economic and security bloc.
The final report, published in English, Spanish and French, is scheduled for submission to all three governments by Sept. 30, according to the Center for Strategic & International Studies.
... "The results of the study will enable policymakers to make sound, strategic, long-range policy decisions about North America, with an emphasis on regional integration," explains Armand B. Peschard-Sverdrup, director of CSIS' Mexico Project. "Specifically, the project will focus on a detailed examination of future scenarios, which are based on current trends, and involve six areas of critical importance to the trilateral relationship: labor mobility, energy, the environment, security, competitiveness and border infrastructure and logistics."
... this is called premeditated merger ...
A similar thing happened many years ago when the government forced racial school integration throughout the South. The Southerners, except for a few holdouts in Alabama, having lived with blacks all their lives, adapted very quickly. It was the Bostonians, you may remember, who had such a hard time with it. No sensible person would argue that integration should not have occurred, however the "integration" was done in a completely incompetent manner. Local schools that once held a high level of academics, discipline, and pride reduced all rules of behavior, discipline, and academic criteria to the lowest common denominator. Florida public schools, before those days, were rated within the top 10% of schools in the country. They're now rated near the bottom.
The same sort of thing will happen as we integrate more and more with Mexico, then the rest of Central and South America. We are well on our way, folks ... and the direction we're headed is down.
