No, you can't 'go it alone' when you're trying to push everyone into globalism. It's a horribly bad idea that is continuing to go horribly wrong, but it's making a select few quite a few billions, so that powerful and continually power hungry few will keep pushing and pushing until the whole world is one huge smoking mess - but then what good will all their billions do?
It's the same thing that's happened here, supposedly smart people ignoring all the warning signs, pushing the credit markets more and more all the while ripping the underpinnings (real solid economic foundational rules) out, all for the sake of wringing out a few more pennies into their pockets. Now we've got these economic geniuses wondering how we got into this mess (any idiot knows how) and how they can machinate us out of it.
And they wonder why we worry about our guns.
