The Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) is hailed as a “think and do” tank, where issues are dealt with head-on and responses to those issues are determined and “marketed.” If you have not heard of this organization, don’t feel bad, as I hadn’t heard of them either until my writing partner – David Risselada – informed me of their existence.
This “institute” is the link between the UN and the U.S., bringing things like the “safe cities initiative” to the United States. I think most people who are aware of all that the UN is attempting to accomplish understand that one way or another, the UN is foisting itself and its policies onto the United States.
For instance, with the case of the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership), Mr. Obama is fully in favor of it and has signed on the dotted line. Of course, Congress needs to approve it, but unfortunately, members of Congress may not have the opportunity to read the actual document before they’re allowed a “yea” or “nay” vote on it.
In essence, if the UN (or agencies connected to it) can force its agenda on nations like America, they’ll do it any way they can and that includes being surreptitious enough to use deception to have things go their way. This is not new to the conservative/patriot. It’s simply understood that this is how they get things done.
Under the “About Us” section for ISD, the following information is provided:
“The Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) is an independent ‘think and do tank’ working with leaders in government, business, civil society and academia to develop cross-border responses to the major geo-strategic, social and security challenges of our time.
“Combining research and policy advisory work, with innovative delivery programmes, specialised task forces, cross-sector partnerships and networks, ISD works to counter global extremism, bridge inter-communal divides and enhance Europe’s capacity to act effectively in the global arena.”
In some ways, it seems innocuous enough (like the Council on Foreign Relations or the Club of Rome), until you begin reading their policy papers. Then, a picture begins to come into focus.
But one question – why are there groups like The ISD in the first place? Doesn’t it seem that these groups exist in order to form policy that they hope will become benchmarks (or at least part of) a nation’s focus? If they’re not, then they are clearly wasting everyone’s time, including their own.
The idea that groups like this exist purely for exercises in mental gymnastics is difficult to believe. Can you imagine all the money that goes into forming and running these groups if they’re not really meant to have any type of effect on a society?
The ISD was created essentially by one individual, though he had the backing of another group.
“The Club of Three, established in the mid-1990s at the initiative of Lord Weidenfeld, brings together leading figures from business and politics, journalism and academic life, from the UK, France and Germany, to meet regularly to extend discussion of key European issues beyond official circles.”
Lord Weidenfeld (cough, cough), certainly a member of the elite put this group together for the purposes of dialogue and to “extend discussion of key European issues beyond official circles.” Really? Yes, really. In other words, the goal is to move beyond official circles. What does that mean? It means to move beyond the parliaments, the congresses, the legislatures, and all other political bodies in order to move things in a direction that is purposeful for the Institute for Strategic Dialogue!
They want what they want and they’re smart enough to understand that sometimes, to get things done, you have to do an end run around the established political bodies. This is done at least until such a time as you can get the “right” elected officials in so they can stand in for certain groups.
One of the group’s articles is “Far Right Extremism and Intolerance.” While you might be tempted to think they are talking about Islamic extremism, think again.
“Though parliamentary manifestations of the radical right are non-violent and operate within the rules of democracy, there remains confusion over the nature of radical right parties and how they relate to phenomena like the extreme right violence that has become apparent across Europe in recent years.”
Notice they admit that the “far right” groups they are talking about are “non-violent” and are essentially law-abiding (“operate within the rules of democracy). In spite of that, they still have a problem with them because these “far right” individuals value the rule of law as determined by a nation’s constitution or other founding documents. They’re a threat to the growing cacophony of voices calling for a one-world system of governance for the “good” of all people (mainly, the elite).
In their guide called, “On the Front Line: A guide to countering far-right extremism” the emphasis is on making cities safer from far right extremism. What is fascinating (as well as completely disingenuous) is the fact that the examples used never include extremism found within Islam. It’s as though that group doesn’t even exist.
“Far-right extremism remains a worrying problem across Europe. The most
visible cases are those that hit the headlines, such as the discovery of the
National Socialist Underground in Germany or Anders Behring Breivik’s
attacks in Norway. In the past decade, both Hungary and Sweden were hit
by a string of serial murders of Roma and ethnic minorities. Though attacks
of this magnitude and scale remain rare, they are not unheard of. In some
cases, those personally touched by these violent attacks are still fighting
As if to cement the point deeply in our psyche that we need to ignore the violence found within Islam itself, the guide specifically notes that the problem lies with groups who are anti-Islam, not Islam itself.
“Those carrying out these actions – far-right extremists – are a broad
group, ranging from less ideological youth street gangs to neo-Nazi terrorist
cells, anti-Islam activists and registered political parties.” (emphasis added)
The truth about ISD is that they are a think tank of propaganda. Their goal is to jettison firmly held conservative beliefs as not only being outmoded, but archaic and anarchistic. In order to save society, these values must be deep-sixed. Even though Islamists have perpetrated most of the terrorist attacks throughout the world since the original 9/11, we can’t think badly of all Muslims. Unfortunately, ISD takes it one step further and insists that we cannot think badly of any Islamists, even those who strap on bombs or fly planes into buildings.
Groups like The Institute for Strategic Dialogue exist for one purpose – to propagandize the world into believing their lies and bringing about the type of change they want in society. In too many cases, the so-called Safer Cities Initiative is nothing more than greater police presence in the inner cities that rob people of their inalienable rights and this initiative is coming to a city near you in the United States.
To be aware of the ISD is to understand that there are groups out there that have plenty of money, direction, and brilliant people working for them to effect change in society. That change is what eventually robs you and me of our rights, our privileges, and our uniqueness. It’s all done in the name of global governance though they tell us it’s for everyone’s benefit.
Who’s kidding whom here? Ultimately, all of this think tank policy manure is designed to benefit only one group – the elite. Forewarned is forearmed.
Ultimately, what we’re dealing with here is another form of psychopolitics.
