While addressing the Business Roundtable on Monday, President Joe Biden said there is “going to be a new world order” that must be led by the United States.
“You know we are at an inflection point, I believe, in the world economy — not just the world economy, in the world. Occurs every three or four generations,” Biden said. “As one of the top military people said to me in a security meeting the other day, 60 million people died between 1900 and 1946, and since then, we’ve established a liberal world order and that hadn’t happened in a long while.”
“A lot of people died but nowhere near the chaos, and now is the time when things are shifting. There’s going to be a new world order out there. We’ve got to lead it, and we’ve got to unite the rest of the free world in doing it,” he continued.
Biden’s use of the phrase “new world order” caused an uproar on Twitter, with many suggesting that the president was referring to a globalist effort to change the world economy.
“’..there could be a new world order out there, and we’ve got to lead it.’ – Joe Biden,” independent journalist Drew Hernandez tweeted. “Out in plain sight, Biden openly telling you he listens to globalist military advisors.”
While the “new world order” has been attacked as a conspiracy theory, the World Economic Forum (WEF) – which is self-described as an “International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation” – has repeatedly adopted the phrase to describe a desired change in the global economy.
One WEF article from 2018 entitled “We must work together to build a new world order. This is how we can do it,” claims that the West has been resisting a “change in the international order” through “intransigent denial, while zealously clinging onto what we inherited from the Cold War.”
The article asserts that the West’s denial is based on “the need to defend a certain ‘way of life’ against a different one.”
“That murky definition was coloured with the principles of freedom, democracy and human rights, but there were parts of the so-called ‘Western bloc’ that did not fall within these principles at all,” the article said.
“China, on the other hand, prefers to promote and soften its growing international influence by referring to ‘cooperation’, and a ‘win-win’ approach under a globalist outlook,” it added. “China’s use of infrastructure-for-resources loans in Africa, as well as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) have been put forward as a new regional and globalist ‘win-win’ strategy.”
