In the mainline media, those who adhere to the position that there is some
kind of "conspiracy" pushing us towards a world government are virulently
ridiculed. The standard attack maintains that the so-called "New World Order"
is the product of turn-of-the-century, right-wing, bigoted, anti-semitic racists acting
in the tradition of the long-debunked Protocols of the Learned Elders
of Zion, now promulgated by some Militias and other right-wing hate groups.
The historical record does not support that position to any large degree but it has
become the mantra of the socialist left and their cronies, the media.
The term "New World Order" has been used thousands of times in this century
by proponents in high places of federalized world government.
Some of those involved in this collaboration to achieve world order have been Jewish.
The preponderance are not, so it most definitely is not a Jewish agenda.
For years, leaders in education, industry, the media, banking, etc., have promoted
those with the same Weltanschauung (world view) as theirs. Of course, someone
might say that just because individuals promote their friends doesn't constitute
a conspiracy. That's true in the usual sense.
However, it does represent an "open conspiracy," as
described by noted Fabian Socialist H.G. Wells in The Open
Conspiracy: Blue Prints for a World Revolution (1928).
In 1913, prior to the passage of the Federal Reserve Act President Wilson's The New Freedom was published, in which he revealed:
"Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had
men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the
U. S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of
somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power
somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so
complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their
breath when they speak in condemnation of it."
On November 21, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt wrote a letter to Col. Edward Mandell House, President Woodrow Wilson's close advisor:
"The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government every since the days of Andrew Jackson..."
That there is such a thing as a cabal of power brokers who control government behind the scenes has been detailed several times in this century by credible sources. Professor Carroll Quigley was Bill Clinton's mentor at Georgetown University. President Clinton has publicly paid homage to the influence Professor Quigley had on his life. In Quigley's magnum opus Tragedy and Hope (1966), he states:
"There does exist and has existed for a generation, an international.... network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups and frequently does so. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments.
I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies...but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known."
Even talk show host Rush Limbaugh, an outspoken critic of anyone claiming a push for global government, said on his February 7, 1995 program:
"You see, if you amount to anything in Washington these days, it is because you have been plucked or handpicked from an Ivy League school -- Harvard, Yale, Kennedy School of Government -- you've shown an aptitude to be a good Ivy League type, and so you're plucked so-to-speak, and you are assigned
success. You are assigned a certain role in government somewhere, and then your success is monitored and tracked, and you go where the
pluckers and the handpickers can put you."
On May 4, 1993, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)
president Leslie Gelb said on The Charlie Rose Show that:
"...you [Charlie Rose] had me on [before] to
talk about the New World Order! I talk about it all the time. It's
one world now. The Council [CFR] can find, nurture, and begin to put
people in the kinds of jobs this country needs. And that's going to
be one of the major enterprises of the Council under me."
Previous CFR chairman, John J. McCloy (1953-70), actually
said they have been doing this since the 1940s (and before).
The thrust towards global government can be
well-documented but at the end of the twentieth century it does not
look like a traditional conspiracy in the usual sense of a secret cabal of
evil men meeting clandestinely behind closed doors. Rather, it is a
"networking" of like-minded individuals in high places to achieve a
common goal, as described in Marilyn Ferguson's 1980 insider
classic, The Aquarian Conspiracy.
Perhaps the best way to relate this would be a brief history of the New World
Order, not in our words but in the words of those who have been striving to make it real.
1912 -- Colonel Edward M. House, a close advisor of
President Woodrow Wilson, publishes Phillip Dru: Administrator in
which he promotes "socialism as dreamed of by Karl Marx."
1913 -- The Federal Reserve (neither federal nor a
reserve) is created. It was planned at a secret meeting in 1910 on
Jekyl Island, Georgia by a group of bankers and politicians, including
Col. House. This transferred the power to create money from the
American government to a private group of bankers. It is probably the
largest generator of debt in the world.
May 30, 1919 -- Prominent British and American
personalities establish the Royal Institute of International Affairs
in England and the Institute of International Affairs in the U.S. at
a meeting arranged by Col. House attended by various Fabian
socialists, including noted economist John Maynard Keynes. Two years
later, Col. House reorganizes the Institute of International Affairs
into the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
December 15, 1922 -- The CFR endorses World Government
in its magazine Foreign Affairs. Author Philip Kerr, states:
"Obviously there is going to be no peace or
prosperity for mankind as long as [the earth] remains divided into
50 or 60 independent states until some kind of international system is
created...The real problem today is that of the world government."
1928 -- The Open Conspiracy: Blue Prints for a World Revolution by H.G. Well is published. A former Fabian Socialist, Wells writes:
"The political world of the into a Open Conspiracy must weaken, efface, incorporate and supersede existing governments...The Open Conspiracy is the natural inheritor of socialist and communist enthusiasms; it may be in control of Moscow before it is in control of New York...The character of the Open Conspiracy will now be plainly displayed...It will be a world religion."
1931 -- Students at the Lenin School of Political
Warfare in Moscow are taught:
"One day we shall start to spread the most
theatrical peace movement the world has ever seen. The capitalist
countries, stupid and decadent ... will fall into the trap offered by
the possibility of making new friends. Our day will come in 30 years
or so...The bourgeoisie must be lulled into a false sense of security."
1931-- In a speech to the Institute for the Study of
International Affairs at Copenhagen) historian Arnold Toyee said:
"We are at present working discreetly with all
our might.to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of
the clutches of the local nation states of the world. All the time
we are denying with our lips what we are doing with our hands...."
1932 -- New books are published urging World Order:
Toward Soviet America by William Z. Foster. Head of the Communist Party USA, Foster indicates that a National Department of Education would be one of the means used to develop a new socialist society in the U.S.
The New World Order by F.S. Marvin, describing the League of Nations as the first attempt at a New World Order. Marvin says, "nationality must rank below the claims of mankind as a whole."
Dare the School Build a New Social Order? is published. Educator author George Counts asserts that:
"...the teachers should deliberately reach for power and then make the most of their conquest" in order to "influence the social attitudes, ideals and behavior of the coming generation...The growth of science and technology has carried us into a new age where ignorance must be replaced by knowledge, competition by cooperation, trust in Providence by careful planning and private capitalism by some form of social economy."
1933 -- The first Humanist Manifesto is published. Co-author John Dewey, the noted philosopher and educator, calls for a synthesizing of all religions and "a socialized and cooperative economic order." Co-signer C.F. Potter said in 1930
"Education is thus a most powerful ally of humanism, and every American public school is a school of humanism. What can the theistic Sunday schools, meeting for an hour once a week, teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of a five-day program of humanistic teaching?"
1933 -- The Shape of Things to Come by H.G. Wells is published. Wells predicts a second world war around 1940, originating from a German-Polish dispute. After 1945 there would be an increasing lack of public safety in "criminally infected" areas. The plan for the "Modern World-State" would succeed on its third attempt (about 1980), and come out of something that occurred in Basra, Iraq. The book also states,
"Although world government had been plainly coming for some years, although it had been endlessly feared and murmured against, it found no opposition prepared anywhere."
1934 -- The Externalization of the
Hierarchy by Alice A. Bailey is published. Bailey is an occultist, whose
works are channeled from a spirit guide, the Tibetan Master [demon spirit]
Djwahl Kuhl. Bailey uses the phrase "points of light" in connection with a "New
Group of World Servers" and claims that 1934 marks the beginning of "the
organizing of the men and women...group work of a new order...[with] progress
defined by service...the world of the Brotherhood...the Forces of Light...[and]
out of the spoliation of all existing culture and civilization, the new world
order must be built."
The book is published by the Lucis Trust,
incorporated originally in New York as the Lucifer Publishing
Company. Lucis Trust is a United Nations NGO and has been a major
player at the recent U.N. summits. Later Assistant Secretary General
of the U.N. Robert Mueller would credit the creation of his World
Core Curriculum for education to the underlying teachings of Djwahl
Kuhl via Alice Bailey's writings on the subject.
1932 -- Plan for Peace by American Birth Control
League founder Margaret Sanger (1921) is published. She calls for coercive
sterilization, mandatory segregation, and rehabilitative
concentration camps for all "dysgenic stocks" including Blacks, Hispanics,
American Indians and Catholics.
October 28, 1939 -- In an address by John Foster
Dulles, later U.S. Secretary of State, he proposes that America lead
the transition to a new order of less independent, semi-sovereign
states bound together by a league or federal union.
1939 -- New World Order by H. G. Wells proposes a
collectivist one-world state"' or "new world order" comprised of
"socialist democracies." He advocates "universal conscription for service" and
declares that "nationalist individualism...is the world's disease." He continues:
"The manifest necessity for some collective
world control to eliminate warfare and the less generally admitted
necessity for a collective control of the economic and biological
life of mankind, are aspects of one and the same process." He
proposes that this be accomplished through "universal law" and
propaganda (or education)."
1940 -- The New World Order is published by the
Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and contains a select list
of references on regional and world federation, together with some
special plans for world order after the war.
December 12, 1940 -- In The Congressional Record an
article entitled A New World Order John G. Alexander calls for a
1942 -- The leftist Institute of Pacific Relations
publishes Post War Worlds by P.E. Corbett:
"World government is the ultimate aim...It
must be recognized that the law of nations takes precedence over
national law...The process will have to be assisted by the deletion
of the nationalistic material employed in educational textbooks and its
replacement by material explaining the benefits of wiser association."
June 28, 1945 -- President Truman endorses world government in a speech:
"It will be just as easy for nations to get
along in a republic of the world as it is for us to get along in a
republic of the United States."
October 24, 1945 -- The United Nations Charter becomes
effective. Also on October 24, Senator Glen Taylor (D-Idaho)
introduces Senate Resolution 183 calling upon the U.S. Senate to go on record as
favoring creation of a world republic including an international police force.
1946 -- Alger Hiss is elected President of the
Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Hiss holds this office until
1949. Early in 1950, he is convicted of perjury and sentenced to prison
after a sensational trial and Congressional hearing in which
Whittaker Chambers, a former senior editor of Time, testifies that
Hiss was a member of his Communist Party cell.
1946 -- The Teacher and World Government by former editor of the NEA
Journal (National Education Association) Joy Elmer Morgan is published.
"In the struggle to establish an adequate
world government, the teacher...can do much to prepare the hearts and
minds of children for global understanding and cooperation...At the
very heart of all the agencies which will assure the coming of world
government must stand the school, the teacher, and the organized profession."
1947 -- The American Education Fellowship, formerly the Progressive
Education Association, organized by John Dewey, calls for the:
"...establishment of a genuine world order, an order in which national
sovereignty is subordinate to world authority..."
October, 1947 -- NEA Associate Secretary William Carr
writes in the NEA Journal that teachers should:
"...teach about the various proposals that
have been made for the strengthening of the United Nations and the
establishment of a world citizenship and world government."
1948 -- Walden II by behavioral psychologist B.F.
Skinner proposes "a perfect society or new and more perfect order" in
which children are reared by the State, rather than by their parents
and are trained from birth to demonstrate only desirable behavior and characteristics.
Skinner's ideas would be widely implemented by
educators in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s as Values Clarification and
Outcome Based Education.
July, 1948 -- Britain's Sir Harold Butler, in the
CFR's Foreign Affairs, sees "a New World Order" taking shape:
"How far can the life of nations, which for
centuries have thought of themselves as distinct and unique, be
merged with the life of other nations? How far are they prepared to
sacrifice a part of their sovereignty without which there can be no
effective economic or political union?...Out of the prevailing
confusion a new world is taking shape... which may point the way
toward the new order...That will be the beginning of a real United Nations, no
longer crippled by a split personality, but held together by a common faith."
1948 -- UNESCO president and Fabian Socialist, Sir
Julian Huxley, calls for a radical eugenic policy in UNESCO: Its
Purpose and Its Philosophy.
"Thus, even though it is quite true that any
radical eugenic policy of controlled human breeding will be for many
years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be
important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined
with the greatest care and that the public mind is informed of the issues
at stake that much that is now unthinkable may at least become thinkable."
1948 -- The preliminary draft of a World Constitution is published by
U.S. educators advocating regional federation on the way toward world federation
or government with England incorporated into a European federation.
The Constitution provides for a "World
Council" along with a "Chamber of Guardians" to enforce world law.
Also included is a "Preamble" calling upon nations to surrender
their arms to the world government, and includes the right of this
"Federal Republic of the World" to seize private property for federal use.
February 9, 1950 -- The Senate Foreign Relations
Subcommittee introduces Senate Concurrent Resolution 66 which begins:
"Whereas, in order to achieve universal peace
and justice, the present Charter of the United Nations should be
changed to provide a true world government constitution."
The resolution was first introduced in the
Senate on September 13, 1949 by Senator Glen Taylor (D-Idaho).
Senator Alexander Wiley (R-Wisconsin) called it "a consummation
devoutly to be wished for" and said, "I understand your proposition
is either change the United Nations, or change or create, by a
separate convention, a world order." Senator Taylor later stated:
"We would have to sacrifice considerable
sovereignty to the world organization to enable them to levy taxes in
their own right to support themselves."
1950 -- In testimony before the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, international financier James P Warburg said:
"we shall have a world government, whether or
not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be
achieved by consent or by conquest."
April 12, 1952 -- John Foster Dulles, later to become
Secretary of State, says in a speech to the American Bar Association
in Louisville, Kentucky, that "treaty laws can override the
Constitution." He says treaties can take power away from Congress
and give them to the President. They can take powers from the States and
give them to the Federal Government or to some international body
and they can cut across the rights given to the people by their
constitutional Bill of Rights. A Senate amendment, proposed by GOP
Senator John Bricker, would have provided that no treaty could
supersede the Constitution, but it fails to pass by one vote.
1954 -- Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands establishes
the Bilderbergers, international politicians and bankers who meet
secretly on an annual basis.
1954 -- H. Rowan Gaither, Jr., President - Ford
Foundation said to Norman Dodd of the Congressional Reese Commission:
"...all of us here at the policy-making level have had experience with
directives...from the White House.... The substance of them is that we shall use our
grant-making power so as to alter our life in the United States that we can be
comfortably merged with the Soviet Union."
1954 -- Senator William Jenner said:
"Today the path to total dictatorship in the
United States can be laid by strictly legal means, unseen and
unheard by the Congress, the President, or the people....outwardly we have
a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government
and political system, another body representing another form of
government, a bureaucratic elite which believes our Constitution is
outmoded and is sure that it is the winning side.... All the strange
developments in the foreign policy agreements may be traced to this
group who are going to make us over to suit their pleasure.... This
political action group has its own local political support
organizations, its own pressure groups, its own vested interests,
its foothold within our government, and its own propaganda apparatus."
1958 -- World Peace through World Law is published, where authors Grenville
Clark and Louis Sohn advocate using the U.N. as a governing body for the world, world
disarmament, a world police force and legislature.
1959 -- The Council on Foreign Relations calls for a New International Order. Study Number 7, issued on November 25, advocated
"...new international order [which] must be responsive to world aspirations for peace, for social and economic change...an international order...including states labeling themselves as 'socialist' [communist]."
1959 -- The World Constitution and Parliament
Association is founded which later develops a Diagram of World Government
under the Constitution for the Federation of Earth.
1959 -- The Mid-Century Challenge to U.S. Foreign
Policy is published, sponsored by the Rockefeller Brothers' Fund. It
explains that the U.S.:
"...cannot escape, and indeed should
welcome...the task which history has imposed on us. This is the task
of helping to shape a new world order in all its dimensions --
spiritual, economic, political, social."
September 9, 1960 -- President Eisenhower signs Senate Joint Resolution 170, promoting the concept of a federal Atlantic
Union. Pollster and Atlantic Union Committee treasurer, Elmo Roper, later delivers an address titled, The Goal Is Government of All the
World, in which he states:
"For it becomes clear that the first step toward World Government cannot be completed until we have advanced on the four fronts: the economic, the military, the political and the social."
1961 -- The U.S.
State Department issues a plan to disarm all nations and arm the United
Nations. State Department Document Number 7277 is entitled Freedom From War:
The U.S. Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World. It
details a three-stage plan to disarm all nations and arm the U.N. with the final
stage in which "no state would have the military power to challenge the
progressively strengthened U.N. Peace Force."
