UN: Turning America's Students Into Good Global Citizens

The United Nations is actively trying to infiltrate American classrooms with a curriculum designed to transform our students into better “global citizens.”  The initiative, known as UN Global Classrooms, is being marketed by the global government in waiting as a way to inculcate students with the “valuable insight into the growing influence of globalization.”

 The United Nations is actively trying to infiltrate American classrooms with a curriculum designed to transform our students into better “global citizens.”  The initiative, known as UN Global Classrooms, is being marketed by the global government-in-waiting as a way to inculcate students with the “valuable insight into the growing influence of globalization.”

One prong of this pernicious attack on our sovereignty is known as the Model United Nations.

As many parents will know, the Model United Nations is a program created by the UN to engage “middle school and high school students in an exploration of current world issues through interactive simulations and curricular materials. Global Classrooms cultivates literacy, life skills and the attitudes necessary for active citizenship.”

Global citizenship, not American citizenship. If the two collide, there is little doubt which allegiance the UN would prefer our young people to declare. In 2008, the Model UN project was promoted in a statement made by the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in Los Angeles:

 

You are here to step into the shoes of UN Ambassadors — to draft resolutions, to plot strategy, to negotiate with your allies as well as your adversaries. Your goal may be to resolve a conflict, to cope with a natural disaster or to bring nations together on an issue like climate change. You may be playing a role, but you are also preparing for life. You are acting as global citizens.

Again, the emphasis is not on being good citizens of their home countries; rather it is to diminish that concept in favor of the creation of global citizens who will see participation in worldwide government as their primary responsibility, regardless of national sovereignty or principles of national law.
