RIC Editor Note: The first king of the Netherlands in more than 120 years has been crowned, ’reigning’ over a people reportedly well invested in their monarchy with a high level of loyalty. However, the position is largely symbolic, and has been stripped of most of it’s political power.
Symbolism can be powerful, though, and a means with which to communicate your message.
A profile of Willem-Alexander by Dutch whistleblower and pedophile exposer Micha Kat and investigative writer Jurriaan Maessen:
“[...] a word about the oldest brother: William-Alexander, heir to the throne, who accompanies his mother to the annual Bilderberg-meetings. He is certainly no stranger to the long-term ambitions of his family, but- as heir to the throne- keeps his actions much more in the dark than his two brothers. As he is subject to a high degree of scrutiny, this prince passes his time with ‘global water-management’ for the UN. And even in this apparently innocent day job, the prince can hardly refrain from pushing global governance. It’s in his blood, you might say. In a documentprepared by the prince for the Johannesburg Summit, he states:
“The most important area of global governance with a substantial potential impact on the water sector is the system of international trade.”
Lamenting that: “The effort to develop a much-needed institutional framework for international water governance has met with resistance and been relatively unsuccessful”, the prince recommends to “Have the World Trade Organization develop and consider virtual water balances, using a resource accounting framework, when assessing and negotiating agriculture subsidies and trade in agricultural products.”
Here they go again, have the WTO strangle nation-states into submission by lending and retracting agricultural funding.
“In the international arena”, says the prince, “water has shown to be a good catalyst for cooperation between nations.”
At a 2004 meeting of the International Institute for Sustainable Development held at United Nations headquarters in New York, the prince of Orange sat side by side with Bilderberger and Executive Director of UNEP Klaus Töpfer, discussing the “overall review of implementation of Agenda 21.” This, by the way, is the same Töpfer that admitted to an “international consensus on worldwide population control” back in 2000.”
[...]Yet on Tuesday, the most elite family in the Netherlands, the House of Orange, will celebrate the ascension to the throne of a new king, Willem-Alexander, amid an outpouring of popular enthusiasm. Polls show support for preserving the Dutch monarchy running as high as 85 per cent.
The outgoing Queen Beatrix is beloved; her son Willem-Alexander is seen as a decent fellow, if a bit of a clod, and his wife Maxima is wildly popular. While some questions have been raised about the royal budget, the highest in Europe at €39m per year by one estimate, it remains the one cultural subsidy that has stayed nearly intact in the face of the Netherlands’ austerity measures.
Why has Dutch populism largely spared the country’s most elitist institution?
In many ways, this apparent paradox represents two sides of the same coin. Support for the monarchy is driven by some of the same forces that drive Dutch anti-elitism. The Dutch are anxious over the preservation of their national identity in the face of immigration, globalisation, and the increasing power of the EU. And they are increasingly disillusioned with a political constellation of a dozen parties that has produced five elections in the past 11 years, and has failed to provide a coherent path out of the euro crisis or to reverse last year’s 1 per cent contraction of the Dutch economy.
“The monarchy is a source of identity in a globalising world,” says Paul Scheffer, a leading scholar of Dutch immigration. “With the divided political parties losing legitimacy, the monarchy gains strength because other institutions are weakened.”
