The right wing in the USA used to spread fear about the UN and One World Government.
After watching the leaderless Occupy movement, and how the internet spreads revolution in an organic way in the Middle East, I think they may have more to be afraid of re:losing authoritarian means of control. Ideas, action and policy bubble up from the internet as does a type of agreement on the major issues of the day. The GOP got control of all authority: politicians, church leaders, talk radio, MSM, and silence the leaders on the left: hollywood celebrities, MSM, etc. None of that matters anymore where OWS is concerned. It is about great ideas divorced from personality. No wonder the GOP is attacking net neutrality.

2. Yeah, One World Government is the boogyman...
But they're just fine with "economic globalization" or a One World Corporation.

5. The JBS doesn't like globalization or 'one world government'. It's as right wing as you can get.
The society opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, claiming it violated the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and overstepped individual states' rights to enact laws regarding civil rights. The society opposes "one world government", and has an immigration reduction view on immigration reform. It opposes the United Nations, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA), the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), and other free trade agreements. They argue the U.S. Constitution has been devalued to favor of political and economic globalization, and that such alleged trend is not accidental. It cites the existence of the Security and Prosperity Partnership as evidence of a push towards a North American Union.

It has been described as "ultraconservative", "far right", and "extremist". The Southern Poverty Law Center lists the society as a "'Patriot' Group". Other sources consider the society as part of the patriot movement.
