George W. Bush, Mikhail Gorbachev, George Shultz and your children -- how are they linked? Why does it matter? 

And who is George Shultz? How did he help rewrite history, redefine morality, and prepare America to accept the new socialist values that are paving the way to the new world order?

If you are as concerned as I am about America's shift from traditional values and factual education to global values and psycho-social strategies for "lifelong learning," you would want to know the answers. You might also wonder why Texas Governor George W. Bush would choose George Shultz, who negotiated the 1985 U.S.-USSR Education Exchange Agreement, as advisor on his presidential exploratory committee. Or why Robert Dole chose Shultz as an advisor during his quest for the presidency in 1996.

SEPARATENESS VS. SOLIDARITY & COMMUNITY

These alliances reflect the new perspective that motivates our globalist leaders to set aside the old rules of involvement and chart a new course for the world. From their point of view, the old-fashioned national sovereignty (or independence) is out, and global solidarity (or interdependence) is in. Now it's up to the media and our educational "change agents" to persuade the masses to accept their view of the earth as a global village. 

The old rules don't fit in the new world order. "Nations that stick to stale old notions and ideologies will falter and fail," said former President Bush in 1991, when introducing the Republican version of our international education system.[2] Al Gore would surely agree. At a 1991Communitarian conference in Washington, he said, "Seeing ourselves as separate is the central problem in our political thinking." [3]

Gore's conclusion was quoted in the book, Spiritual Politics, co-authored by Corinne McLaughlin, the first task force coordinator for the President's Council on Sustainable Development. McLaughlin, who likes to quote Djwhal Khul, spirit guide to theosophist Alice Bailey, also taught her mediation strategies at the Department of Education, Pentagon, and the EPA. [4]

"There really is only one sin--separateness," she states in her book. "...war is more likely to spring from rampant nationalism, ethnocentrism, and intolerant religious fundamentalism -- all extreme and separative attitudes.... [A} primary cause of the earth's suffering is that humanity is caught in the illusion of separation.... What is needed as a cure for separateness is a deep sense of community -- that we're all in this together."[5]

SHULTZ AND GORBACHEV

Mikhail Gorbachev shares his contempt for nationalism and religious fundamentalism, i.e. biblical Christianity. The goal of this unrepentant Communist continues to be a socialist world government with power to manage and monitor every human resource according to the will of an elite "Council of the Wise."

Back in 1995, George Shultz served as Chairman of the Board of Advisors of the Gorbachev Foundation, which had been "created to assist in the process of building global consensus for our common future." The same year, he co-chaired Gorbachev's first annual State of the World Forum in San Francisco together with Ted Turner, Maurice Strong,[6] and other international leaders "chosen for their internationally recognized contributions to designing our emerging global civilization." Among the speakers was author Sam Keen, who announced that --

"The ecological crisis, in short, is the population crisis. Cut the population by 90% and there aren't enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage."[7]

Attending the Forum as a member of the press, I heard the thundering applause that followed Keen's statement. Whether Shultz agreed with audience or not, this popular suggestion shows the Forum's general attitude toward human lives. Despite the noble rhetoric about saving the oppressed, the overriding sentiment indicated that people count only if they conform to the new ideology and serve the world community. Therefore the masses must be trained, managed, and monitored -- and the loss of lives due to politically expedient conflicts matters little. The major players in this transforming process are the media, the international education system, and a global surveillance system. All are nearly in place [8]-- thanks to Shultz, Clinton and others who share their vision for managed conformity and strive to fulfill it.

SOVIET INDOCTRINATION IN AMERICA

Shultz's friendship with Gorbachev dates back to his years as Secretary of State in the Reagan administration [9] -- a time when many of us simply trusted the Republican cabinet to represent American families. In the early eighties, few of us realized that Shultz and David Hamburg, President of the globalist Carnegie Corporation, were using their authority to negotiate a binding international agreement with Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze.[10] Its terms required that we trade our sophisticated education and data tracking technology for the brainwashing strategies used to indoctrinate Soviet children, modify behavior, and monitor the masses to ensure compliance with Soviet ideology. [11]

To see what George Shultz did to undermine our American education system, rewrite history, change values, and prepare America to accept a new role in the "international community," ponder the following quotes from The Keys of This Blood by Malachi Martin:

"Within scant months of Gorbachev's election in March of 1985 to the post of General Secretary of the Central Committee of the CPSU, he and President Reagan met at their first summit in Geneva. . . November 19-20,1985.... [They signed] the General Agreement on Contacts, Exchanges and Scientific Technical Education and Other Fields... It authorized mutual exchange programs, the homogenization of curricula, the sharing of facilities and the mutual indoctrination of the two peoples involved. . . .

"Cooperation would cover all computer-based instruction, instructional hardware and curriculum design for all grades of primary and secondary education, as well as college and university studies. The obvious goal was a total homogenization not only of the methods of teaching and learning, but what was to be taught. . . .

"Cooperation, for instance, in the 'social sciences' turned a blind eye to the official prostitution of psychiatry and psychology by the Soviet Union as clinical tools for inflicting mental and physical torture as political punishment and for disposing of dissidents. The USSR had been banned from the World Psychiatric Association in 1983 for such practices. ...

"Or take cooperation in the humanities. As taught in the Soviet Union, all humanities are marinated in Leninist Marxism as a matter of course. And history is distorted by a thoroughgoing Marxisation of ideas, by the systematic suppression of facts, and by downright lies. One might wonder what common curricula might be drawn up between the USSR and the US. . . . "

". . .the aim of the General Agreement -- at least from the point of view of the Wise Men of the West -- was 'to transform the shape of the world'. . . because 'sooner or later we are going to have to face restructuring our institutions so that they are not confined merely to the nation-states. . . . '"

"That agreement came from already established drawing boards. . . . For both parties intend to create nothing less than a new arrangement in all human affairs -- 'a new world order,' to use a consecrated phrase both Gorbachev and the Wise Men employ. . . .

"Those early policies also reflected that blithe and trusting acceptance by the Wise Men of basic Leninist thinking. . . as they took the field with the leader who had been judged. . . most likely to succeed in fulfilling Lenin's ultimate dream of Soviet messianism. . . ."[12]

That messianic leader was Gorbachev. His blueprint for revolution came, not from Lenin, but from Antonio Gramsci. This Italian Communist had aroused Stalins's wrath by suggesting that Lenin's revolutionary plan wouldn't work: the "oppressed" proletariat in Christian nations could not be incited to violence against the bourgoise. After all, in America the two groups prayed together. So Gramsci wrote a new blueprint for world revolution. Before long, his plan for Communist infiltration of the media, university, church, and government was changing the leadership, beliefs, values, and attitudes of our nation. The primary assault was on biblical absolutes and Christianity, which must be crushed as a social force before the new face of Communism could rise and flourish. Malachi Martin gave us a progress report:

"By 1985, the influence of traditional Christian philosophy in the West was weak and negligible. . . . Gramsci's master strategy was now feasible. Humanly speaking, it was no longer too tall an order to strip large majorities of men and women in the West of those last vestiges that remained to them of Christianity's transcendent God." [13]

Whether we agree with Martin's conclusion or not, the process he describes matches history. George Shultz had helped pave the way. The merger of US and USSR education strategies laid the foundations for the new program for training human resources and monitoring compliance. To bring everyone into the web, they linked political correctness to success through the national-international workforce development program signed into law by Clinton in 1998. When fully implemented, only those who demonstrate conformity to the new standards for attitudes, values and group thinking would be rewarded with work and college.[14]

THE GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE

Apparently, Governor George W. Bush, the frontrunner among Republican presidential candidates, approves of this system. His education record in Texas shows his support. [15] No wonder, since his father adopted the six goals of UNESCO's world education system and made them the center piece of America 2000, the Republican version of Clinton's Goals 2000. You read part of this 1991 announcement earlier, but it's worth repeating. If the media had warned us, we might have awakened to the current revolution:

"Nations that stick to stale old notions and ideologies will falter and fail. So I'm here today to say, America will move forward.... New schools for a new world.... Re-invent--literally start from scratch and reinvent the America school.... Our challenge amounts to nothing less than a revolution in American education." [16]

President Bush was referring to a paradigm shift in education that would produce a corresponding shift in our culture. In this context, a paradigm is a cultural model or mental framework that determines how people understand and perceive reality. A paradigm shift means cultural transformation: a totally new way of thinking and seeing. In the new paradigm, the old absolutes based on the Bible and the Constitution must be reinterpreted or discarded. So when Bush spoke of "old notions and ideologies" and a "revolution in American education", he had already prepared his plan for changing the minds of America. The management system had been designed by UNESCO, and the psycho-social strategies for altering our children's beliefs and values had been promoted by UNESCO but imported from the Soviet Union.

In other words, everything that had made American education the envy of the world was now obsolete. In the ashes of the old ways would arise the UN plan for global education, tested in the Soviet Union, and designed to mold compliant servers for the 21st Century "sustainable communities." [17]

THE PARADIGM SHIFT: Total Transformation

   OLD PARADIGM NEW PARADIGM
Beliefs  Based on Bible  Blend of earth-centered religions
Culture  Western individualism  Global solidarity
Values  Based on Bible  Based on human idealism
Morals  Moral boundaries   Sensual freedom
Rights   Personal freedom   Social controls
Economy   Free enterprise  Socialist collective
Government  By the people  By those who control the masses

The masses would be controlled through the Hegelian dialectic (consensus) process [18] by globalist leaders who would view the world through the new filter of globalism. Polls, propaganda, simple slogans, and continual conflicts would be essential to its success. In fact, the greater the perceived crisis, the faster the leader can assume the coveted political powers that true freedom forbids. President Clinton has already mastered these totalitarian strategies, as Gorbachev suggested in a 1993 editorial:

"Bill Clinton will be a great president if he can make America the creator of a new world order based on consensus."[19]

Shultz's ties to Gorbachev link him to a network of leaders determined to unite the world under a socialist banner.[20] To them, national sovereignty, the U.S. Constitution, Biblical absolutes, and parental rights are offensive obstacles [21] that hinder progress. They use the word "democracy" as if it means freedom, but their policies point to a world where, as in Communist countries, only the compliant are free to express their opinions.[22] In this context, expedient lies are more valid than truth, and a human life has no value apart from its place in a political agenda.

GOD'S PERSPECTIVE

Long ago, the people who followed Jesus misunderstood His message and sought to crown Him king. But Jesus didn't come to free His people from their Roman rulers. He came to save us from bondage to sin, fill us with His life, and enable us to see reality from His perspective.

From His high vantage point, the world's threats and conflicts look far less formidable. Yes, we are moving toward world governance. Yes, hostility toward God, His Word and His uncompromising people is rising fast. But when we trust and seek His guidance, He will surely guide each one of us through the battles ahead. When we follow Him, He will enable us to walk in His triumph. (2 Cor. 2:14)

The author of Psalm 2 saw the earthly conflict from God's perspective. His words are as relevant now as ever:

"Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the LORD and against His Anointed,
saying, 'Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.'
He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The LORD shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
'Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion.' . . .
Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him."
