What do the terms ”Neoconservative” and ”Neoliberal” really mean, exactly?

Most people have heard such words used as slang referring to certain politicians, and a search of the internet for their meaning results in widely varying definitions.

One of the biggest causes of confusion surrounding those words is the fact that the political realities they define are often unknown to the public, and also people often incorrectly associate those terms with other words— for example, many people assume common ”social liberalism” is assocated with ”Neoliberalism,” and common ”social conservatism” is associated with ”Neoconservatism,” however those terms are actually not related.

This article defines the meanings of the political philosophies of ”Neoconservatism” and ”Neoliberalism” by making use of information drawn from a variety of sources including audio and video clips. Also explained is the meaning of the term ”Neocon Globalist,” which refers to a commonly employed hybrid of those two philosophies.

This page is a part of the article A Summary of Long Term ”Neocon Globalist” Agendas of the Global Elite.













What is ”Neoconservatism” and ”Neoliberalism,” and how are those words related to the phrase ”Neocon Globalist?”

A great deal of confusion exists concerning the terms ”Neoconservatism” and ”Neoliberalism.” They both refer to philosophies of international relations, and are not related to the commonly known social philosophies of ”conservatism" and ”liberalism.” For example, many social conservatives subscribe wholeheartedly to philosophies of ”Neoliberalism," and most politicians actually subscribe to a combination of both ”Neoconservatism” and ”Neoliberalism.”

Generally, ”Neoconservatism” involves a military interventionist approach to relations with other countries, and "Neoliberalism" involves long-term strategies of economic exploitation and global consolidation of nations.

Those who are mostly known for having affiliations with Neoconservative views are known as ”Neocons," and those mostly known for affiliations with Neoliberal views are known as ”Globalists.” However, the reality is that nearly all ”Neocons” and ”Globalists” are actually ”Neocon Globalists,” who share a similar hybrid of the two views, with most trying to conceal their affiliations with the opposite view of what they are generally known for being affiliated with.

”Neocon Globalist” is a phrase referring to a politician or member of the global elite who has an objective of achieving world domination through military and economic means. They work to incrementaly consolidate the governments of the planet to bring them under the totalitarian control of the global central banking cartel. Neocon Globalists generally further their objectives through deceiving the populace and using military force— including by implementing ”false flag” attacks on their own citizens for creating fear to justify invading other countries and for reducing the rights of their own people.

Both Republicans and Democrats can be ”Neocon Globalists,” and confusion often arises as many individuals most commonly known simply as ”Neocons,” such as George W. Bush, are actually also following Neoliberal policies. Other conservative politicians such as Ronald Reagan were also known as ”Neoliberals,” and the term often creates confusion as many Neoliberals are also involved with hawkish ”Neoconservative” philosophies such as the think tank ”Project for the New American Century (PNAC),” which published a document ”Rebuilding America's Defenses” a year prior to the 9/11 attacks which stated the need for a ”catalyzing new Pearl Harbor” type event.

Essentially, by examining examples of individuals who are most commonly thought of as simply being ”Neocons,” such as George W. Bush, it can be said that ”Neocons” often make use of deception and hawkish ”Neoconservative” strategies in order to help further long-term ”Neoliberal” globalization goals. Therefore, the term ”Neocon Globalist” is more accurate and less likely to be misinterpreted than the use of the term ”Neocon” by itself, due to the fact that it reflects the common reality of the combined use of the philosophies of ”Neoconservatism” and ”Neoliberalism.”

”Neocon Globalists” are associated with powerful but little known political groups such as the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR), the Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission. as well as ”military industrial complex” groups such as the Carlyle Group. Currently, nearly all well-known major politicians in both American political parties are actually ”Neocon Globalists.”








Details of Neoconservatism

”Neoconservatism” is a theory of United States imperialist military interventionism which has a history dating back many decades. It has the view that the U.S. military must be strong enough to control the world, or else the world would descend into chaos.

This video clip shows excepts from the farewell address to the Nation by President Dwight Eisenhower in 1961 after eight years of his Presidency. In the speech he emphasizes the dangers of the ”Military Industrial Complex.”

Eisenhower states:

”In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.”

”We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.”

This video clip describes Paul Wolfowitz's involvement in shaping the U.S. Neoconservative foreign policy implemented after the attacks of September 11, 2001, including his role in the creation of the PNAC document ”Rebuilding America's Defenses” during the year 2000 which suggested a need for a ”catastrophic and catalyzing event— like a new Pearl Harbor.”

Note that this video contains techniques of ”disinformation” which attempt to reinforce the ”false left/right paradigm” in order to shift blame away from most of the Republican Party, Democrats, and organizations such as the United Nations— details are explained on the video's main page.

[ Wolfowitz was also the President of the World Bank between 2005 and 2007, and during that time he worked on implementing Globalist economic configurations such as ”public-private partnerships.” He is an excellent example of a ”Neocon Globalist,” due to his being heavily involved with both ”Neoconservatism” and ”Neoliberalism.” ]

The Carlisle Group is a massive ”private equity firm,” which raises money from wealthy individuals and companies, and then reinvests the money into private defense companies which have extremely high profit margins. It is made up of well known politicians such as George Bush Sr. and James Baker, and it is one of the most powerful elements of the ”military industrial complex,” which is a business built around the defense industry being so large and powerful that it able to influence the politics of war. This video discusses the structure of the group and explains its history of abuses.







Excerpts from a Wikipedia Article Discussing Neoconservatism

Overview

”Neoconservatism is a political philosophy that emerged in the United States. Their key distinction is in international affairs, where they espouse an interventionist approach that seeks to defend national interests.

”Historically, neoconservatives supported a militant anticommunism, tolerated more social welfare spending than was sometimes acceptable to libertarians and paleoconservatives, and sympathized with a non-traditional foreign policy agenda that was less deferential to traditional conceptions of diplomacy and international law and less inclined to compromise principles, even if that meant unilateral action.

”The movement began to focus on such foreign issues in the mid-1970s. However, it first crystallized in the late 1960s as an effort to combat the radical cultural changes taking place within the United States. Irving Kristol wrote: 'If there is any one thing that neoconservatives are unanimous about, it is their dislike of the counterculture.' ...

”... Neoconservative foreign policy parallels their domestic policy. They insist that the U.S. military must be strong enough to control the world, or else the world will descend into chaos.

”Believing that America should 'export democracy', that is, spread its ideals of government, economics, and culture abroad, they grew to reject U.S. reliance on international organizations and treaties to accomplish these objectives. Compared to other U.S. conservatives, neoconservatives take a more idealist stance on foreign policy; adhere less to social conservatism; have a weaker dedication to the policy of minimal government; and in the past, have been more supportive of the welfare state.


Distinctions from Other Conservatives

”Most neoconservatives are members of the Republican Party. They have been in electoral alignment with other conservatives and served in the same presidential administrations. While they have often ignored ideological differences in alliance against those to their left, neoconservatives differ from paleoconservatives. In particular, they disagree with nativism, protectionism, and non-interventionism in foreign policy, ideologies that are rooted in American history, but which have fallen out of the mainstream U.S. politics after the World War II. Compared with traditional conservatism and libertarianism, which may be non-interventionist, neoconservatism emphasizes defense capability, challenging regimes hostile to the values and interests of the United States. Neoconservatives also believe in democratic peace theory, the proposition that democracies never or almost never go to war with one another.


Imperialism and Secrecy

”John McGowan, professor of humanities at the University of North Carolina, states, after an extensive review of neoconservative literature and theory, that neoconservatives are attempting to build an American empire, seen as successor to the British Empire, its aim being to perpetuate a Pax Americana. As imperialism is largely seen as unacceptable by the American public, neoconservatives do not articulate their ideas and goals in a frank manner in public discourse.

McGowan states:

”'Frank neoconservatives like Robert Kaplan and Niall Ferguson recognize that they are proposing imperialism as the alternative to liberal internationalism. Yet both Kaplan and Ferguson also understand that imperialism runs so counter to American's liberal tradition that it must... remain a foreign policy that dare not speak its name... While Ferguson, the Brit, laments that Americans cannot just openly shoulder the white man's burden, Kaplan the American, tells us that 'only through stealth and anxious foresight' can the United States continue to pursue the 'imperial reality [that] already dominates our foreign policy,' but must be disavowed in light of 'our anti-imperial traditions, and... the fact that imperialism is delegitimized in public discourse' .. The Bush administration, justifying all of its actions by an appeal to 'national security,' has kept as many of those actions as it can secret and has scorned all limitations to executive power by other branches of government or international law.'”









Details of Neoliberalism and Globalism

On the surface, the theory of ”Neoliberalism” is about making trade between nations easier, and it is associated with ”the rule of the market”— cutting public expenditures for social programs, deregulation, privatization, and eliminating the concept of ”the public good” or ”community.”

”Globalism” refers to the aspects of Neoliberalism which are associated with pushing toward a one-world economic system controlled by the global elite.








David Rockefeller speaking about having an anti-American and internationalist agenda:

”... Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”From Rockefeller's ”Memoirs”, (p. 405)







From the Website ”CorpWatch,” Briefly Defining Neoliberalism:

From an Article by Elizabeth Martinez:

”'Liberalism' can refer to political, economic, or even religious ideas. In the U.S. political liberalism has been a strategy to prevent social conflict. It is presented to poor and working people as progressive compared to conservative or Rightwing. Economic liberalism is different. Conservative politicians who say they hate 'liberals' — meaning the political type — have no real problem with economic liberalism, including neoliberalism.

...

”Around the world, neo-liberalism has been imposed by powerful financial institutions like the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank. It is raging all over Latin America. The first clear example of neo-liberalism at work came in Chile (with thanks to University of Chicago economist Milton Friedman), after the CIA-supported coup against the popularly elected Allende regime in 1973. Other countries followed, with some of the worst effects in Mexico where wages declined 40 to 50% in the first year of NAFTA while the cost of living rose by 80%. Over 20,000 small and medium businesses have failed and more than 1,000 state-owned enterprises have been privatized in Mexico. As one scholar said, 'Neoliberalism means the neo-colonization of Latin America.'

”In the United States neo-liberalism is destroying welfare programs; attacking the rights of labor (including all immigrant workers); and cutbacking social programs. The Republican "Contract" on America is pure neo-liberalism. Its supporters are working hard to deny protection to children, youth, women, the planet itself — and trying to trick us into acceptance by saying this will 'get government off my back.' The beneficiaries of neo-liberalism are a minority of the world's people. For the vast majority it brings even more suffering than before: suffering without the small, hard-won gains of the last 60 years, suffering without end.







From the Website ”The August Review,” Breifly Describing Globalism:

From an article by Patrick Wood, found on IndyTruth.org:

”The collective effect of purposeful and amoral manipulation that seeks to centralize economic, political, technological and societal forces in order to accrue maximum profit and political power to global banks, global corporations and the elitists who run them.

”'Free Trade' is the central mantra. Globalization is set against national Sovereignty, closed borders, trade tariffs and anything that would restrict its goals and methods used to achieve them.

”Globalization promotes regional and global government, a one-world economic system of trade and a form of fascism where global corporations and their elite control the policies and directives of individual governments.”








Potential of ”Doublespeak” Abuse Through the Use of the Word ”Neoliberalism”

”Neoliberalism,” while being a technically correct term for the majority of the policies of the presidential administrations from Reagan up until today, is a word that has not been used much in the United States during that time.

The resurgence of use of the term by certain media outlets to describe policies of Obama's Administration is an important example of ”doublespeak”— as the term is technically correct for the media to use to describe his policies, however most people don't realize that Neoliberalism is not at all related to what their preconceived notion of ”liberal” means, and usually it is not explained that the previous Republican administrations were heavily involved in furthering Neoliberal policies as well.






Rep. Dennis Kucinich on NAFTA and Immigration

Rep. Dennis Kucinich


I think that someone needs to say, and I'm willing to say it, that the basis of this whole battle over immigration ignores the fact that the waves of immigration started right after NAFTA passed. Wages collapsed in Mexico. Migrants came across the border seeking a chance for a better wage and a better life.

I'm saying that we need to go back to NAFTA. We need to cancel NAFTA and cancel the WTO, go back to bilateral trade conditioned on workers' rights, human rights and environmental quality principles.

”Once we have a trade agreement between the United States and Mexico that's based on workers' rights and a decent wage, then workers in Mexico can be assured that they can have a decent living. They don't have to go north of the border in seeking that opportunity. People should have a chance to make the money where they live, but they haven't been able to do that, because of these trade laws.

We need to stop attacking these migrant workers, because actually what's been happening is they're the victims of a system that has enabled corporations to make great profits using a cheap supply of labor. This has been a disgrace in this country, where we've actually supported a form of slave labor, and that has to stop. People who have been in this country and have been contributing to this country should have a path to legalization. We need to have, certainly, some control at the borders. But I'll tell you, the way this whole immigration thing has been couched, I think, has done a disservice to the proud tradition of this country in welcoming immigrants from all around the world.” — Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH)

Endgame Part 2 - How the Bilderberg Group is Secretly Merging the North American Continent

  view individual page  |   view in popup windowRunning Time: 23 minutes 28 seconds  

This video clip from the Alex Jones film ”Endgame” explains specifically how the Bilderberg Group has been using stealth for strategically paving the way toward full consolidation of the North American countries, for merging the populations, monetary systems, militaries, and highways of the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Following are excerpts from the video's transcript, the video page contains the full transcript:


... From September 12 to September 14 in Banff, Canada, hundreds of elected and appointed government leaders from Canada, Mexico, and the United States met in secret. ... The Judicial Watch Foundation submitted freedom of information act requests to obtain the full agenda and minutes of the secret assembly. ... The foundation finally succeeded, and did receive thousands of documents which are the blueprints of a shadow government ruling by bureaucratic and executive fiat. The pages chronicle an already operating North American Union— transportation, law enforcement, agriculture, regulation, banking, manufacturing, construction, education, immigration, and the military— are being merged, with no input from the people, or their elected representatives in congress and parliament. One of the first items on their agenda is to stress how important it is that their plan be ”carried out by stealth.” The controllers also talked about exploiting the public's fear about climate change to push a continent-wide tax to fund the new government.

...

Daniel Estulin: ”They are trying to destroy every nation on Earth in the name of promoting process, because you see these people are land owners, they don't need progress because they control the land. They are trying to bring the masses back to the 'middle ages' in a post-industrial age world order.”

Michael Coffman: ”One of the things that is very shocking is that the United Nations Global Diversity Assessment which came out in 1985 clearly states that to protect planet Earth we have to go back to a feudal system— they actually said that in the document.”

...

Building on the massive displacement of humanity caused by globalization, the New World Order is rapidly constructing the physical infrastructure of the North American Union— the NAFTA superhighway control grid.

The proposed Trans-Texas corridor would be a patchwork of superhighways and railroads stretching 4,000 miles from the border of Mexico, with a private Spanish company winning the bid to collect the tolls for the next 50 years. These deals with private companies are being negotiated largely in secret.

...

Gina Parker Ford - Chairman for Judicial Reform, National Eagle Forum: ”First of all, they are proposing a North American Tribunal, which would be similar to what we have in chapter 11 in the NAFTA agreement, which is trumped by International law. The US Supreme court and the US Constitution could potentially be rendered invalid, and what we would have is the North American business law that would trump what we have here in the United States.”

...

Michael Coffman ”'Smart growth' is nothing more than an effort to bring control into the cities.. You have the re-wilding of American and the wildlands project in the convention on biological diversity which is to control our rural population.”

Toll roads on interstate highways nationwide are walling off exit ramps to small towns and rural communities, and are creating ghost towns by design. This trend is accelerating under the NAFTA highway system, and is meant to re-wild more than half of the country.

Michael Coffman: ”All of these things are designed to bring more and more control to bureaucracies than to the independent individual of this nation. What brought me into this discussion is the fact that while I was doing this multimillion dollar research effort in the 1980's and the early 1990's, I became aware of an agenda to lock up essentially one half of the United States into wilderness corridors and reserves, what is called the ”Wildlands Project” which is also a key cornerstone of the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity. It was during that study in which I began to realize that this was not an effort to protect the environment, but an effort to control you and I. They were dividing the United States up into little compartments in which they would rip out whole roads and communities to put them back into the wilderness.”

...

Under section 802 of the Patriot Act, all misdemeanors are considered terrorism. Federal police squads called ”Viper Teams” randomly force Americans to line up and show their papers, from the sidewalks of Miami, to the subways of New York, to the streets of Houston, Texas, citizens are being searched by heavily armed gangs. of paramilitary police.

Refutation of Claims of the Trans-Texas Corridor Project Being Cancelled
recorded January 7, 2009, running time 27 minutes
Following is a partial description of a January 7, 2009 broadcast by radio host Alex Jones, the full description may be found on the main audio page.

Despite a recent press release claiming the Trans-Texas Corridor project being cancelled, radio host Alex Jones explains the only difference being that the project which is integral in creating a future North American Union has only been renamed.

The Trans-Texas corridor is part of the NAFTA superhighway system, which is integral for creating the North American Union which was defined in Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) documents, of which the the entire minutes from a meeting in Banff, Canada in September of 2007 were acquired by the Judicial Watch organization who sued for their acquisition in September of 2007.

... Public opinion is so firmly against the roads being put in place that politicians and companies need to rely on deception in order to put the roads in place.

...

George Bush signed an executive order in 2007 stating that if States want to receive their toll road or Department of Transportation Federal money, that they must give their roads over to foreign interests. Also, Barack Obama's proposed highway plan is to further shift control of roads over to foreign interests which will profit heavily from the roads.

The Trans-Texas corridor itself was already a deception as other "trans-corridors" are all part of the larger NAFTA Superhighway Security and Prosperity Partnership system that plans to take over every Federal and State highway in the United States, and place international tolls on those roads with a large portion shared with the State, County, Federal, and international bureaucracies under the North American Union. The same sort of transition is happening in such countries as Chile, Argentina, Greece, Iceland.
