The denunciation of globalism is commonplace in extremist rhetoric. French political scientist Jean-Yves Camus recalls that "the term globalism is a neologism that appeared in the early 1980s in the conspiracy circles of the antisemitic far-right [...] to designate the so-called concerted action of secret societies, economic interest groups or lobbies to achieve the establishment of a world government."
Globalism is conceived by its detractors as a general program of destruction of the nation state and subversion of traditional values like family, religion and patriotism, in the service of an oligarchy often described as "stateless" to emphasize its lack of national roots. The conspiracy theorists claim globalism seeks to impose the undivided reign of finance through the abolition of borders and the takeover of the economy by banks. To do this, globalism is alleged to use think tanks and discussion forums such as the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group, the Council on Foreign Relations, the World Economic Forum, and a host of international and regional organisations including European Union, the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the World Trade Organization.
Personalities such as David Rockefeller, Zbigniew Brzeziński, Henry Kissinger and George Soros are regularly cited by the critics of globalism, accused of secretly working for the establishment of a “New World Order”. Frequently overlaid with antisemitism, this narrative also includes names such as the Rothschilds.
