Oh dear. It seems that the first globalist was none other than Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective, or at least that the Neocons and Neolibs got their ambitions, if not their limited intelligence, from the great man.
For, reading The Noble Bachelor we find Holmes expressing his fondness for those hailing from the United States in these words:
“It is always a pleasure to meet an American, Mr Moulton, but I am one of those who believe that the folly of a monarch and the blundering of a minister in far-gone years will not prevent our children from being some day citizens of the same world-wide country under a flag which shall be the quartering of the Union Jack with the Stars and Stripes.”
I somehow don’t think he had in mind a country that kept the rebels at bay with some 900 military bases, fomented proxy wars across the globe, and put trade sanctions on every non-compliant nation, currently to the total of forty countries.
I don’t think he thought of Britain as a mere lapdog, either. But then, Conan-Doyle did believe in fairies too.
