*******A "Bold New World" and "Forces Too Powerful"

[Note: On September 14, 2011, World Bank Group president Robert Zoellick delivered a speech in which he advocated a "new world economy" including "modernized multilateralism" which is "beyond dependence." In this system, he said there would be a "New Normal" that "will be fluid and at times volatile---with more shocks and crises...." And relevant to the Power Elite's timetable for a world currency in 2018 and later fulfillment of their plan for world government, he indicated there should be "fiscal union" instead of just "monetary union." He said, "It is not responsible for the Eurozone to pledge fealty to a monetary union without facing up to...a fiscal union that would make monetary union workable...." To see the strategically important positions Zoellick previously has held, look toward the end of my October 20, 2008 NewsWithViews column, "The People's Republic of America."]
William Knoke is founder and president of the Harvard Capital Group, which advises “global corporations.” And in his book, Bold New World: The Essential Road Map to the Twenty-First Century (1996), Knoke projects that “in the twenty-first century, we will each retain our ‘indigenous’ cultures, our unique blend of tribal affiliations,… yet our passion for the large nation state, for which our ancestors fought with their blood, will dwindle to the same emotional consequences of county or province today. A new spirit of global citizenship will evolve in its place, and with it the ascendancy of global governance.”
Knoke’s vision is not new, as noted Fabian and historian Arnold Toynbee in a paper presented in early June 1931 remarked: “A local state may lose its sovereignty without losing those familiar features which endear it to the local patriot—such features, I mean, as the local vernacular language and folk-lore and costume, and the local monuments of the historical past…. [But] if we are frank with ourselves, we shall admit that we are engaged on a deliberate and sustained and concentrated effort to impose limitations upon the sovereignty and the independence of the… sovereign independent States…. The dragon of local sovereignty can still use its teeth and claws when it is brought to bay. Nevertheless, I believe that the monster is doomed to perish by our sword. The fifty or sixty local states of the world will no doubt survive as administrative conveniences. But sooner or later sovereignty will depart from them.”
Toynbee was one of those individuals pursuing Cecil Rhodes’ “scheme to take the government of the whole world!” His paper (quoted from above) was reprinted in the November 1931 edition of International Affairs, the journal of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, an outgrowth of the semi-secret Round Table Groups, formed between 1908 and 1913 to further Rhodes’ plan for an elite to dominate the world. According to Bill Clinton’s mentor at Georgetown University, Professor Carroll Quigley, in Tragedy and Hope (1966), the elite who formed the Round Table Groups “in 1919 founded the Royal Institute of International Affairs…. Similar Institutes of International Affairs were established in the chief British dominions and in the United States (where it is known as the Council on Foreign Relations.)”
Whenever someone asks for evidence of a secret plan to undermine national sovereignty, the question invariably arises as to who are the elite behind the plan. In that regard, the Toynbee paper quoted above was read at the 4th Annual Conference of Institutions for the Scientific Study of International Relations. Twelve countries were represented along with delegates from 4 international organizations, and the Conferences were initiated by the League of Nations Institute for Intellectual Cooperation. National Coordinating Committees were also formed, with one of their purposes being the execution of resolutions passed by the Conferences. In the Toynbee paper quoted above, he stated (and note especially the word, we): “I will merely repeat that we are at present working, discreetly but with all our might, to wrest this mysterious political force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local national states of the world. And all the time we are denying with our lips what we are doing with our hands, because to impugn the sovereignty of the local nation states of the world is still a heresy for which a statesman or a publicist can be—perhaps not quite burnt at the stake, but certainly can be ostracized and discredited.”
Concerning the preparation of an elite to dominate the world, Paul Mantoux wrote in the Foreword of International Understanding: Agencies Educating for a New World (1931) by John Eugene Harley: “How can a well-prepared elite be raised throughout the world to spread its influence over the masses, who can then support them in their turn? …Plainly the first step, in the case of each country, is to train an elite to think, feel, and act internationally.” In order to do this in the U.S., though, our nationalistic Constitution would first have to be undermined. And in that regard, the next year (1932) William Kay Wallace’s Our Obsolete Constitution was published. Wallace had accompanied President Wilson to Paris after World War I and was attached to the American Commission to Negotiate Peace. In his book, Wallace wrote: “The age of individualism is past…. The Constitution is no longer adequate to meet the requirements of our age…. [The individual] must adopt the one best way or plan which has been scientifically determined by experts…. The absurdity of such doctrines as those of national rights and a social contract has long been recognized…. As we have gone beyond the stage of believing in an avenging God, so we are coming to realize that ideas of political sovereignty are borrowings from ignorant notions about the source of power in the state…. Sovereignty in its narrow territorial aspects must be abandoned…. We must be prepared to integrate Scientific Capitalism with the principle of Scientific Socialism…. It is admitted on all sides that national directive control of industry… must be undertaken in the immediate future…. The state will control the means of production….”
The same year (1932), Rhodes scholar Clyde Eagleton’s International Government was published, and in the Preface of the 1948 revised edition, he stated: “I am… concerned with… the slowly evolving constitutional law and organization of the community of nations developing toward international, or world, government.” In the text of the book, he noted that “the following arguments have been offered in favor of regionalism: (1) Development should be attempted gradually, rather than in one jump toward world government. Such a world system could be better built upon the solid foundation of regional systems.”
Concerning the pursuit of world government via regionalism, Graeme Howard in America and the New World Order (1940) argued regarding “the framework for support of the new world order” that “promising both a more ethical and a more realistic solution is the formation of regional economic entities…. Cooperative regionalism [will] bring about a better world order through internationally balanced economic and political regional blocs.” Similarly, M.J. Bonn in The Annals of American Academy of Political and Social Science (July 1941) wrote that “national planning means deliberate international anarchy…. But we are not yet going to have a world state…. The formation of regional federations by hitherto autonomous groups of countries is much easier…. With every move a step toward a new world order is taken.” And the next year, in Post-War Worlds, P.E. Corbett (also a member of the Group furthering Rhodes’ plan) wrote: “A world association binding together and coordinating regional groupings of states may evolve toward one universal federal government, as in the past loose confederations have grown into federal unions…. World government is the ultimate aim, but there is more chance of attaining it by gradual development.”
The same year (1942), the Federal Council of Churches convened a “Commission to Study the Bases of a Just and Durable Peace” (in June 1996 Bishop William Swing convened an interfaith forum, “United Religions,” as a prelude to Mikhail Gorbachev’s second “State of the World” forum in October 1996). The 1942 Commission published a series of lectures titled A Basis for the Peace to Come, and in John Foster Dulles’ lecture, “Toward World Order,” he declared: “We have found that regional integration… is not alone adequate…. We must find a system of government which can exercise jurisdiction which is world-wide…. Let us first consider the solution of ‘world government.’ …It involves an organization dedicated to the general welfare—the peace and order of mankind—and the assuming of an allegiance to this goal superior to that of any national allegiance…. By these… initial steps we will have begun that dilution of sovereignty which all enlightened thinkers agree to be indispensable.” Just think, President Eisenhower would choose this man to be his Secretary of State, even though Dulles had these views regarding our national sovereignty.
In September 1942 Free World published “Round Table No. 10” (remember Cecil Rhodes and the Round Table Groups), titled “The Coming World Order.” In addition to Frank Aydelotte (American Secretary to the Rhodes Trustees), participants included Clyde Eagleton (mentioned above) and William Allan Neilson, who was presiding. In the Round Table discussion, Neilson stated: “The question as to whether humanity is ready for world order, whether there are certain changes in public opinion that must be brought about first and what forces must be put to work for it, really follows very closely from this question of whether we should plan for it now while we are still at war.”
Remember, this is in 1942, long before the end of the Second World War. Eagleton in the discussion proposed: “What I had in mind was my hope that the United Nations, when they are victorious after this war, and assuming that they will be, would simply take over and run the world for a period of time, for a transitional period, and that they would compel other states to obey and that they would ultimately change this United Nations system to a permanent world order in which every state must be a member and must submit to the regulations laid down by the international government…. But probably it will not be necessary to use coercion against them, because in such a world order, they would practically be compelled to fit in.” Nielson then interjected, “The economic pressure would be enough.” One might remember this statement in terms of GATT and the World Trade Organization. Free World later published “Round Table NO. 11” titled “Prospects for 1942” with one of the “Essential Findings” given as the following: “The creation of the machinery of a world government in which the present United Nations will serve as a nucleus is a necessary task of the present in order to prepare in time the foundation for a future world order.”
And in the November 1942 Free World, T.V. Soong (Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Chinese Republic) wrote “The Coming International Order,” in which he declared: “The new world order, like the Chinese Republic, and all like human institutions, will never be realized until we start it. And we shall never be more ready for starting it than now…. We are seeing more clearly than ever before… the crying necessity for a new world order…. We must give to our young men, who are called on to sacrifice, a flaming mission of a new world order, and we must begin to make that mission come true now.”
In 1946, the World Movement for World Federal Government was formed, and in 1947 the movement’s philosophy was expressed in its Montreax declaration. According to Alfred Lilienthal in Which Way to World Government? (Foreign Policy Association “Headline Series” number 83, Sept.-Oct. 1950), “At Montreaux the formation of regional federations, in so far as they did not become an end in themselves, was favorably regarded as a step toward the effective functioning of world government.” In September 1946, Winston Churchill advocated a European Union and on May 13, 1947 stated: “Unless some effective world supergovernment, for the purposes of preventing war, can be set up and begin to reign, the prospects for peace and human progress are dark and doubtful…. But let there be no mistake upon one point. Without a United Europe there is no prospect of world government. It is the urgent and indispensable step toward the realization of that goal.”
In that same year (1947), Cord Meyer, Jr. (who was a member of Scroll & Key at Yale University, as was Dean Acheson) became the first president of United World Federalists, and in Peace or Anarchy (1947), he advocated “the transformation of the U.N. into a limited world government,” and further stated: “The U.N. must be given the constitutional authority to maintain security through laws which call for obedience from the individual inhabitants of the world as their first duty and which no national government can override…. They will not have the right to appeal to their national governments for protection because in its limited sphere the world law will be supreme…. Disarmament must be enforced by law and the possession of war-making power by national governments prohibited. They can be allowed to retain only the weapons needed for the maintenance of domestic order…. Similarly a limit must be set on the number of troops that any government can be allowed to retain. The abolition of mass armies is as essential as the outlawry of heavy armament…. The U.N. must have its own police and military forces to uphold its laws. A revised Charter must empower the U.N. to raise, train and support under its own command individuals owing exclusive allegiance to it…. The amended Charter should deny the right to secede. If it is to guarantee protection, the U.N. cannot allow the member nations the right to withdraw when they see fit…. So long as the present sovereign state system exists, each government will continue to distort the education of its youth with nationalistic propaganda.
The tribal religion of nationalism is kept alive by the continuous menace of war…. Many of these proposals may appear unpatriotic or even treasonous to those who identify patriotism with the worship of American military power…. The tribal nationalists continue to believe that the support of a heavily armed and sovereign United States is the first duty of a citizen…. The final stage in the transference of power to the U.N. will be completed when the outlawed armaments have been removed from all national arsenals and national armies have been reduced to the size required for internal policing.” In March of the next year (1948), Meyer told the New York Herald Tribune Forum: “It is not a question of whether some kind of world government will be established in the next 10 years. Within a decade the world will be organized as one political unit. It is only a question as to what kind of world government will be established, and how.” Meyer will be a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and will work for the CIA from 1951 to 1977.

[Note: In the Note at the beginning of Part 1 of this series, I referred to the Power Elite’s (PE) economic timetable for the future. Often, the PE uses crises/chaos to move their plan forward, and on September 7, 2011, Moneynews published “UBS: Euro Can’t Survive, Demise To Spark Chaos” by Forrest Jones, who wrote that according to Zero Hedge, a UBS (Union Bank of Switzerland) report stated: “Under the current structure and with the current membership, the euro does not work. Either the current structure will have to change, or the current membership will have to change…. Were a stronger country such as Germany to leave the euro, the consequences would include corporate default, recapitalization of the banking system and collapse of international trade…. It is also worth observing that almost no modern fiat currency monetary unions have broken up without some form of authoritarian or military government, or civil war.”
Another part of the PE’s plan is to link regional arrangements, and in that regard, on September 13 negotiations began in Chicago regarding the Trans-Pacific Partnership (known as the “NAFTA of the Pacific”). The original members Chile, New Zealand, Singapore and Brunei joined on June 3, 2005; and Australia, VietNam, Malaysia, Peru and the U.S. are now negotiating to join. This will mean an additional loss of jobs for American workers, especially in manufacturing, because nations like Viet Nam have few (if any) labor, health, and environmental regulations as the U.S. does. In the last decade, Michigan has lost almost half of its manufacturing jobs, and North Carolina and Ohio aren’t far behind that. Another reason for the loss of these jobs is that many other countries subsidize their industries. A New York Times article, “Solar Panel Maker Moves Work to China” (January 14, 2011), reported that Evergreen Solar is moving from Massachusetts (800 jobs lost) to China because, as CEO Michael El-Hillow said: “Chinese manufacturers have been able to push prices [for solar panels] down sharply because they receive considerable help from the Chinese government and state-owned banks, and because manufacturing costs are generally lower in China.” And in “Andy Grove: How America Can Create Jobs” (Bloomberg Business Week, July 1, 2010), one reads that former Intel CEO Andy Grove claims that our advanced technology companies are creating many more jobs abroad than in the U.S.]
William Knoke in his book Bold New World mentioned in Part 1 sees clearly the trend today toward world government via regional arrangements, as he comments that “Historians looking back on us today will view regional blocs as mere stepping-stones toward the world as a trading bloc, perhaps one political unit…. It will only be a matter of time before these blocs in turn, merge into a whole…. As each bloc forms, regional trade heightens and the need for a common currency, uniform product labeling, and commercial regulation rises. In each case, we are experimenting with new ways to link countries, to yield sovereignty in exchange for something more than what is lost.”
It was evident even before the end of the Second World War that if a world government were to succeed, there would have to be some sort of enforcement mechanism. In the Chinese Ambassador to the United States Hu Shih’s lecture in A Basis for the Peace to Come, he pronounced: “The new world order which we want to see set up… must be a ‘League to Enforce Peace.’ …This new world order must command a sufficient amount of organized force to support its law and judgment.”
The Secretary-General of the United Nations, U Thant, would see the U.N. in the role of “Enforcer,” as in a May 6, 1962 address at Uppsala University in Sweden, he talked about “the myth of the absolute sovereign state,” stating that “If the United Nations is to grow into a really effective instrument for maintaining the rule of law, the first step must be the willingness of Member states to give up the concept of the absolute sovereign state…. In the community of nations, it is increasingly important to restrict the sovereignty of states, even in a small way to start with. This restriction may involve… the reduction of armed forces and the undertaking to submit disputes to the arbitration of an international judiciary…. The United Nations… must have the right, the power, and the means to keep the peace.” (See volume VI of the Public Papers of the Secretaries-General of the United Nations, made possible by a grant from the Ford Foundation, whose earlier president H. Rowan Gaither told Congressional Committee Research Director Norman Dodd that the foundation was operating under directives from the White House “to the effect that we should make every effort to so alter life in the United States as to make possible a comfortable merger with the Soviet Union.”)
In a later address to the World Association of World Federalists on August 23, 1970 in Ottawa, U Thant indicated “there is no aspect of world affairs and national affairs that does not require the attention of world citizens as they work steadfastly to usher in the new world order.” And the next year (1971), U Thant became one of the founders of Planetary Citizens, along with Norman Cousins who would be president of the World Federalist Association. President Barack Obama has referred to himself as a “citizen of the world.”
Cousins had earlier written in Modern Man is Obsolete (1945) that “the greatest obsolescence of all in the Atomic Age is national sovereignty…. We even debate the question of ‘surrendering’ some of our sovereignty—as though there is still something to surrender. There is nothing left to surrender. There is only something to gain…. A common world sovereignty would mean that no state could act unilaterally in its foreign affairs…. It would mean that no state could withdraw from the central authority as a method of achieving its aims…. There is no need to talk of the difficulties in the way of world government. There is need only to ask whether we can afford to do without it.”
And if the U.N. were to become a de facto world government, how might it govern and who might be the model for its leadership? In a message to a UNESCO symposium in Finland in 1970, U Thant noted that “Lenin was a man with a mind of great clarity and incisiveness, and his ideas have had a profound influence on the course of contemporary history…. [Lenin’s] ideals of peace and peaceful coexistence among states… are in line with the aims of the U.N. Charter.” (See “Lenin Aims Like U.N.’s, Thant Says,” Los Angeles Times, April 7, 1970.)
U Thant was not the only notable to see the “benefits” of the Communist model for world government, as former U.S. Supreme Court Justice William O Douglas in Towards a Global Federalism (1968) wrote that “when the anatomy of that system [Communism] is exposed, say at the level of medicare, scientific research and development, athletics and the arts, technical training, nursery schools, outer space, the regime obviously reflect much that is good from the view point of all humanity…. ‘Building bridges’ with Communist nations is the prime necessity of the day…. We have moved from free enterprise to a sui generis form of socialism. The trend toward the collective society will continue…. The Western and the Soviet regimes may yet evolve into comparable economic systems…. The new [global] federalism would deal with conflicts between nations just as our own Supreme Court deals with conflicts between sovereign states.” This is the type of synthesis I have mentioned many times as the goal of the PE. And Justice Douglas’ 1968 assessment that we had already moved toward a form of socialism has been furthered by President Obama.
Unlike Lenin’s acceptance of violent means to accomplish his ends, the movement today toward a World Socialist Government, synthesizing Western Capitalism and Eastern Communism, is more sophisticated and psychological in its approach. In that regard, Soviet defector Anatoliy Golitsyn in The Perestroika Deception (1995) spelled out how Mikhail Gorbachev had been tricking the West, as Gorbachev and his wife Raisa were the disciples of the late Sardinian Communist Antonio Gramsci, “the Marxist proponent of a policy of active social demoralization” to undermine a country by subverting the culture through a variety of means. Though Gorbachev was responsible for numerous atrocities, he was treated royally when he toured the U.S., even having the use of Steve Forbes’ (presidential candidate at the time) family airplanes.
Relevant to societal change and the movement toward a World Socialist Government, Knoke in his book projected that the Socialist-dominated European Union “is showing us the next step…. What happens in Europe will very much be the model for world consolidation in the twenty-first century, not just economically, but politically and socially as well.” But how would American society be changed to accept this “Grand Design”?
In Raymond Fosdick’s memorial volume on Rockefeller’s General Education Board, he described the Board as part of Rockefeller’s effort toward “this goal of social control.” And in 1945, Rockefeller Foundation Medical Director Alan Gregg was touring various institutions that had been involved in war medicine to see if any group would commit to undertake the kind of social psychiatry that had been developed by the army during wartime (e.g., cultural psychiatry for the analysis of the enemy mentality), and see if it could be relevant for the civilian society.
This led to a Rockefeller grant that resulted in the birth of the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations in London in 1947. Tavistock would join with Kurt Lewin’s Research Center for Group Dynamics at the University of Michigan the next year to begin publication of the international journal, Human Relations, relating theory to practice. In that same year (1947), the Research Center for Group Dynamics along with a division of the National Education Association (NEA) founded the National Training Laboratories (NTL), which in 1962 published Issues in [Human Relations] Training. In this book is described “unfreezing, changing and refreezing” attitudes, and how the NTL has moved toward “sensitivity training” which is characterized as “thought reform or brainwashing.” Some years later (1977) Tavistock senior staff member Fred Emery’s Futures We are In was published, in which was related Emery’s theory of “social turbulence,” which indicates that faced with a series of crises, many individuals will attempt to reduce the tension by adaptation and eventually psychological retreat, which can lead to social disintegration. Tavistock and the NTL have been especially interested in “human resource management” and “group behavior.”
At this point, it is important to look a little more closely at who has been psychologically manipulating the American people as well as many others in the rest of the world. In that regard, Christopher Simpson in Science of Coercion: Communication Research and Psychological Warfare 1945-1960 (Oxford University Press, 1994) wrote: “I first discuss U.S. psychological warfare prior to 1945, stressing the early work of noted communication theorists Harold Lasswell and Walter Lippmann and the pioneer studies underwritten by the Rockefeller Foundation…. Lasswell and Lippman advocated… a particular social order in the United States and the world in which forceful elites necessarily ruled in the interests of their vision of the greater good. U.S.-style consumer democracy was simply a relatively benign system for engineering mass consent for the elite’s authority…. Harold Lasswell had the ear of [Rockefeller] Foundation administrator John Marshall…. The elite of U.S. society (‘those who have money to support research,’ as Lasswell bluntly put it) should systematically manipulate mass sentiment.”
A key agent of such elite was John J. McCloy, Assistant Secretary of War during World War II, who established a highly secret Psychology Branch within the War Department General Staff G-2 (Intelligence) organization (McCloy would go on to become head of the World Bank, on the Board of the Rockefeller Foundation, chairman of the Ford Foundation, and chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations for many years.). Other elite such as William Paley (CBS), C.D. Jackson (Time/Life) and W. Phillips Davison (RAND) were prominent staff members of the U.S. Army’s Psychological Warfare Division during the Second World War. Two other centers of psychological warfare at that time were the Office of War Information (OWI) headed by Rhodes scholar Elmer Davis, and Samuel Stouffer’s Research Branch of the U.S. Army’s Division of Morale.
After the war, Stouffer (Harvard University) became a member of the interservice Committee on Human Resources established by the Department of Defense in 1947. John Clauson, who was a veteran of Stouffer’s Research Branch, wrote in “Research on the American Soldier as a Career Contingency” (Social Psychology Quarterly 47, no. 2, 1984): “Perhaps most intriguing was the number of our members who became foundation executives. Charles Dollard became president of Carnegie Corporation. Donald Young shifted from the presidency of SSRC (Social Science Research Council) to that of Russell Sage… Leland DeVinney went from Harvard to the Rockefeller Foundation. William McPeak… helped to set up the Ford Foundation and became its vice president. W. Parker Mauldin became vice president of the Population Council. The late Lyle Spencer (of Science Research Associates)… endowed a foundation that currently supports a substantial body of social science research.”
Dollard (president of the Carnegie Corporation 1948-1954) and Young (SSRC) urged Stuart Chase (with the League for Industrial Democracy, formerly titled The Intercollegiate Socialist Society) to write The Proper Study of Mankind. The book was initially financed by Carnegie Corporation, was characterized as a project of the SSRC, and was published in Harpers in 1948. In the book, one reads: “Theoretically a society could be completely made over in something like 15 years, the time it takes to inculcate a new culture into a rising crop of youngsters…. Prepare now for a surprising universe: Individual talent is too sporadic and unpredictable to be allowed any important part in the organization of society. Social systems which endure are built on the average person who can be trained to occupy any position adequately if not brilliantly.” Does this not call to mind Pavlov’s conditioning of dogs in the past and Outcome-Based or School-to-Work education today?
And how society would be “made over” by Chase can be seen in his earlier book, A New Deal (Chase originated this term and would be a member of FDR’s “Kitchen Cabinet”), in 1932 in which he proclaimed: “I am not seriously alarmed by the sufferings of the creditor class, the troubles which the church is bound to encounter, the restrictions on certain kinds of freedom which must result, nor even by the bloodshed of the transition period. A better economic order is worth a little bloodshed…. Revolution can give what no other road promises to give so directly and forcibly—a new religion…. It will be materialistic…. We need a new religion…. Red revolution is a creed, dramatic, idealistic and, in the long run, constructive…. A nation (Russia) of 160 million people… has adopted this religion…. Groups are actually beginning to form. As yet they are scattered and amorphous; here a body of engineers, there a body of economic planners. Watch them. They will bear watching. If occasion arises, join them. They are part of what H.G. Wells has called the Open Conspiracy. Why should Russians have all the fun remaking the world?” Chase would be a consultant to UNESCO in 1949.
Dollard was not only president of the Carnegie Corporation (and a trustee of RAND), but he was also chairman of the Human Relations panel of the Defense Department’s Committee on Human Resources (paid panel consultants included Lasswell and the Carnegie Corporation’s John Gardner, who would become Secretary of HEW under President Johnson). In Christopher Simpson’s book mentioned above, the author states that “it was the Carnegie executives who controlled the purse strings of the funds on which Stouffer relied.”
October 31, 2011[Note: To show how the Power Elite’s (PE) plan is coming to fulfillment today, Rush Limbaugh on his October 21, 2011 radio program said Wall Street bankers are in the hip pocket of President Obama, and he is in the hip pocket of Wall Street bankers. This is exactly what Philip Freneau in American Museum (July 1792) said would happen as part of a hereditary elite’s (e.g., Rockefellers) plan to gain control of the U.S. Freneau claimed “money will be put under the direction of government, and government under the direction of money.” The next step in the PE’s plan for world control is a world currency in 2018 A.D., and you can see a picture of it on the cover of The Economist for January 9, 1988 right here.
Relevant to the PE’s planned economic integration of European nations mentioned in the “Note” of my last two articles in this series, the Financial Times (October 16, 2011) reported that “the eurozone crisis exposed the lack of economic integration needed to complement the European monetary union. But if the 17 partners in the common currency are going to interfere in each other’s fiscal strategies—hitherto regarded as the cornerstone of national sovereignty—then closer political integration is essential, say proponents…. To German eyes, the next step forward in the E.U…. must fill in the gaps… that created a monetary union without fiscal union….”
And relevant to Germany and the secret Nazi plan mentioned in my newest book, For The Record (January 13, 2010) highlighted the relationship between “The Family” (which I have mentioned before) and the Underground Reich as well as the (Martin) Bormann capital network. The following information comes from this FTC radio program. “The Family” was founded in the 1930s by Abram Vereide, and after WWII, it and Vereide got PE agent and American high commissioner John J. McCloy to rescind the de-Nazification program in Germany, which helped Bormann’s network.
Nazi spies Manfred Zapp and Baron Ulrich von Gienanth were close associates of Vereide. In 1938, Zapp came to the U.S. from Pretoria, South Africa (PE member Cecil Rhodes was in South Africa), and he ran the Transocean News Agency (which was really a Nazi espionage and propaganda organization) that afforded him the opportunity to network with those of New York’s elite who were sympathetic to Fascism. Von Gienanth was a Nazi undercover SS diplomat in Washington, D.C., who was watching secret American operations and laundering Reich finance minister Joseph Goebbels’ gold into dollars donated to the America First Committee.
Vereide and “The Family” recruited Nazis to serve U.S. intelligence after WWII. One Nazi Vereide saved was Hermann Abs (known as “Hitler’s Banker”) who would become “Adenauer’s Banker” (Konrad Adenauer was chancellor of West Germany 1949-1963). Abs would also become vice-president of Vereide’s International Christian Leadership.
In my book, The Power Elite and the Secret Nazi Plan, I refer to Curt Riess’s The Nazis Go Underground (1944), which forecast that one of the secret Nazi strategies would involve liaison with American Protestant fundamentalists. In my book, I also refer to Nazi Gen. Reinhard Gehlen, who would become a Christian evangelist when about 70 years of age.]
Like John Clausen’s statement in Part 2 of this series, former OWI overseas director Edward Barrett (head of the U.S. government’s overt psychological warfare program 1950-1952, and later Dean of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism) in Truth Is Our Weapon (1953) wrote: “Among OWI alumni are the publishers of Time, Look, Fortune, and several dailies; editors of such magazines as Holiday, Coronet, Parade, and the Saturday Review, editors of the Denver Post, New Orleans Times-Picayune, and others; the heads of Viking press, Harper & Brothers, and Farrar, Straus and Young… the board chairman of CBS and a dozen key network executives… the editor of Reader’s Digest international editions….”
Christopher Simpson in Science of Coercion reveals that “U.S. psychological warfare programs between 1945 and 1960 provide a case study of how the priorities and values of powerful social groups can be transformed into the ‘received knowledge’ of the scientific community and, to a certain extent, of society as a whole… the engineering of consent of targeted populations at home and abroad…. Various leaders in the social sciences engaged one another in tacit alliances to promote their particular interpretations of society…. They regarded mass communication as a tool for social management and as a weapon in social conflict…. Key academic journals of the day… concentrated on how modern technology could be used by elites to manage social change, extract political concessions, or win purchasing decisions from targeted audiences…. This orientation reduced the extraordinarily complex, inherently communal process of communication to simple models based on the dynamics of transmission of persuasive—and, in the final analysis, coercive—messages.” Since that time, commercial advertisers have increasingly used psychological techniques of persuasion upon the American public, and Simpson notes: “From the advertisers’ point of view, the simple sale of products and services is not enough. Their commercial success in a mass market depends to an important degree on their ability to substitute their values and worldview for those previously held by their audience…. Terms like ‘Pepsi Generation,’ ‘Heartbeat of America,’ and ‘I Love What You Do for Me’ have always been more than simple advertisement slogans. They have been successful from the advertisers’ point of view only to the extent they have defined a way of life.”
Concerning the subject of education, as American education continued to decline through the 1970s and 1980s, corporations became increasingly concerned that they would not have enough skilled workers to compete in what they saw as the new “global economy.” Management of “human resources” or “human capital” to compete in such an economy became of prime importance to industry.
On May 8, 1996, A.D., a co-worker of Dr. Shirley McCune at the federally-funded Mid-Continent Regional Educational Laboratory (McREL) told me that McCune (who left McREL around 1994) had referred to work done at the Research Center for Group Dynamics, founded in 1946 by Kurt Lewin. The co-worker said he believed that McCune had known Lewin and had done work for the National Training Laboratories (NTL). Prior to coming to McREL, McCune had been a director of the tax-funded Education Commission of the States (ECS) and had been with the (John) Naisbitt (author of Megatrends) Group. After coming to McREL, McCune authored a 63-page working paper in 1983, for the Kansas State Department of Education, titled “Framing A Future for Education.”
The working paper was largely based upon the views expressed in Megatrends, and McCune stated: “Schools must become more effective and more efficient in providing society with human resources which are essential for our national well-being.” She continued to say that students will be expected to develop “ability to work in groups, use skills in critical thinking, problem solving… synthesizing, decision making and communication—key factors for successful participation in the work force.” Students would be the products or “human capital” for society’s economic system, and there would be “lifelong learning” with an increase in adult education and retraining. McCune went on to say, “The future of all institutions and our total society rests on our ability to develop human capital or to ‘grow better people.’”
Under “Probable Directions for Restructuring Education,” she listed among the “Goals of Education” in “An Information Society” the following: “Global education, small group skills, computer as learning tool in all programs, and career/vocational education as integral pat of educational community experience.” Also under “Probable Directions” in “An Information Society,” she included “School-based management, managed change, economic development (forming human capital), expended support for total population services, business as participant and learning resource, school as community center for varies ages and services, lifelong learning oriented.”
On November 2, 1989 McCune spoke at the Kansas Governor’s conference on education, stating that “The Governors began to understand the very close relationship between economic development and human capital…. What we’re into is the total restructuring of the society…. What I’m not sure that we have begun to comprehend or to act on sufficiently is the incredible amount of… human resource development restructuring…. In this particular changed society, there are only two things that really matter… and secondly to produce human capital…. The great majority of businessmen today understand the critical importance of human resource development…. More and more the school is the cob or the center of all human resource development services…. We have to have adults who can be leaders, leaders who can, in fact, have visions of where we can go in the future…. We have to prepare students for the range of knowledge and skills they’ll need… with group and organizational skills… conflict resolution skills…. We’re going to have to provide them with career development skills…. One of the developments that’s going on in more and more communities in this nation… [is] an educator whose job is to work with the social welfare community and put together a total network of human resource development activities in that community where we can actually provide for all of the needs of the children and of the adults in that community…. The earlier we intervene into the lives of people, the cheaper it is.”

[Note: There’s a great deal in the news regarding the economic difficulties of Greece and whether they will cause problems for the entire European Union (EU). However, in Moneynews (October 27, 2011) international investor Jim Rogers said that because “most European countries are increasing their debt rather than decreasing it,” problems for the EU will continue. Reuters on October 4 had reported that Russia’s prime minister Vladimir Putin wanted to bring ex-Soviet countries into a Eurasian Union with “a stronger integration on a new political and economic basis,” because “he saw the way out of the global [economic] crisis through a regional integration.”
Of course, the integration will be Socialist, because that’s the goal of the Power Elite (PE). And that President Obama is playing an important part in achieving that goal by moving the U.S. more toward Socialism can be inferred from The Voice of Russia announcement on August 2, 2011 that “Russia’s Post Office has issued a collection of stamps and envelopes to mark the 50th jubilee of the U.S. President Barack Obama.” Russia or the U.S.S.R. never did this for any previous president, did they?
The U.S. is also moving closer to Communist China, as their People’s Daily Online (September 30, 2011) covered Michigan Governor Rick Snyder’s visit to Beijing, where he expressed his pleasure that “at least 50 Chinese auto-related companies have set up shops in the Detroit area.” And if you look at this article, you can see Gov. Snyder wearing a lapel pin of combined U.S. and Communist China flags!]
What Dr. Shirley McCune was saying at the end of Part 3 is a fulfillment of what Arthur Calhoun wrote in the third volume of his 1919 book, A Social History of the American Family, in which he proclaimed: “The modern individual is a world citizen, served by the world, and home interests can no longer be supreme…. As familism weakens, society has to assume a larger parenthood. The school begins to assume responsibility for the functions thrust upon it…. The kindergarten grows downward toward the cradle and there arises talk of neighborhood nurseries…. Social centers replace the old time home chimney…. The child passes more and more into the custody of community experts…. It seems clear that at least in its early stages, socialism will mean an increased amount of social control…. We may expect in the socialist commonwealth a system of public educational agencies that will begin with the nursery and follow the individual through life…. Those persons that experience alarm at the thought of intrinsic changes in family institutions should remember that in the light of social evolution, nothing is right or valuable in itself.”
At about the same time, McCune delivered the main speech at an Aurora, Colorado “in-service” teachers session, and according to a teacher there, McCune proclaimed: “Radical change is necessary now; you cannot escape it…. Strategies and behaviors must be changed because the dawning of this new age is far more significant than the transformation of the national and world economics which is taking place…. The [new] Information Society will touch every aspect of our lives. It will shape a new social character or person who views the world in very different ways…. The schools will become the training institutions whose function it is to affect all other sectors of society—economic, social, and political.”
And what kind of radically changed, restructured New Age society and education did Dr. McCune have in mind? In her co-authored The Light Shall Set You Free (1996), she talked about a “point of light,” and stated: “Only the souls who are ready to receive the new curriculum will elect to raise their vibrations to match those required to enter the New Age…. Did you know that the animals’ souls are the souls of our future children?... We are entering the Age of Aquarius…. The goal for all of humanity who will enter the new millennium is to become androgynous…. Educational systems, businesses, political structures and governments all built on self-serving principals, for example, are crumbling, only to be reborn through tremendous pain into higher forms.” At about the same time Dr. McCune co-authored this book she was a research assistant in School-to-Work at Arizona State University, and then she became an administrative assistant to the Superintendent of Public Instruction for the State of Washington.
Much of the information in her book is alleged to have been channeled through the authors by “Ascended Masters,” including one called “El Morya, Master.” And this is where there is an international connection.
For decades, the U.S. has poured millions of U.S. tax dollars into the U.N., and for decades while Secretary-Generals came and went, Robert Muller remained an Assistant-Secretary-General. While at the U.N., he began the Robert Muller School in Arlington, Texas, and his schools are in over 25 nations and are members of the UNESCO Associated Schools Project. A description of Muller’s school from its own document states that: “The underlying philosophy upon which the Robert Muller School is based will be found in the teachings set forth in the books of Alice A. Bailey by the… teachings of M. Morya….” This is the “El Morya, Master” mentioned in Dr. McCune’s book, and Alice Bailey was the leading occultist of the first half of the 20th century. Bailey wrote often about a coming “new world order” and “points of light” connected to service. Her first works were published by Lucifer Publishing Company, which became Lucis Trust, now located at 120 Wall Street in New York City.
That Dr. McCune is a New Age proponent who on November 2, 1989 had used the term “human resource development” more than once is perhaps significant in that earlier in that year, New Age networking Sen. Claiborne Pell had introduced Senate Joint Resolution 135, the “National Commission on Human Resource Development Act,” co-sponsored by Senators Al Gore and Nancy Kassebaum. The resolution was to establish the Center for Human Resource Development and spoke of the “normal aspiration of all citizens to more fully achieve their potential in body, mind and spirit…. [and] there is a role for government to assist in research and education on techniques that promote the… fuller realization of human potential.” Testifying for the measure was Dr. Herbert Benson of Harvard Medical School, who explained the “relaxation response” as experienced by those who practice Zen, Yoga and Transcendental Meditation. The resolution probably would have passed the Senate except that Senator Dan Coates put a “hold” on it and it died.
Before continuing with the subject of education, I will digress briefly to describe the effect of the New Age upon the presidency. Not only did Newsweek refer to Bill Clinton as the first “New Age President,” but the “Renaissance Weekend” he had attended for years was referred to by The New York Times as a “New Age Retreat.” Then, in a front page article in The Washington Post (June 23, 1996), Bob Woodward wrote that Hillary Clinton “seemed jerked around by the muddled role of first lady, as she swung between New Age feminist and national housewife.” Woodward was excerpting from his new book, The Choice, and recounted that at Camp David on the weekend of December 30, 1994, Bill and Hillary Clinton invited people to dissect the first 2 years of his presidency and search for a way back from the Democrats’ Congressional defeat in November of that year. Woodward related that Jean Houston “played a significant role over the weekend and the year that followed…. Hillary and Houston clicked, especially during a discussion of how to use the office [of the presidency] for the betterment of society.”
Houston is a New Age researcher in psychic experiences and altered consciousness, who has visited and worked in 36 countries under the auspices of UNESCO, and who spoke on “The Rise of the New Right” at the National Education Association convention in 1979. She has been a Director of the syncretistic Temple of Understanding, and has spoken to the National Catholic Educational Association annual convention several times. On March 14, 1989 she spoke on “Whole System Transition: The Birth of the Planetary Society” to the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) annual conference (the day after New Age former U.N. Assistant Secretary-General Robert Muller spoke to the ASCD on “Educating the Global Citizen: Illuminating the Issues,” which was the conference theme). Houston along with John Naisbitt (remember Shirley McCune’s connection to him, and McCune also participated in the 1989 ASCD conference) and Elsa Porter (President Jimmy Carter’s Assistant Secretary of Commerce) founded “The Possible Society,” which in 1985 sponsored a seminar in Denver re-creating The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, with Houston employing trances, etc., and saying “You are simply God in hiding. You must achieve your potential Godhood.” This same year Newsweek published “The Megatrends Man” (September 23, 1985) about John Naisbitt, and in the article referred to “the crowd of 200 or so mostly New Age enthusiasts…. Senator Albert Gore of Tennessee, a friend of the Naisbitts and one of the invited speakers, got into the swing of things by submitting that it was time to ‘re-think the nation-state system’” (In Gore’s book Earth in the Balance, he says: “Nature in its fullest is God.”) In Jennifer Donovan’s article “Creating Mythos of the Modern World” (San Francisco Chronicle, March 19, 1985) about Jean Houston, Donovan wrote that Houston was “A showman and shaman… calling what she does ‘priestcraft’.”
In Bob Woodward’s Washington Post article mentioned above, he also wrote: “Houston and her work were controversial because she believed in spirits and other worlds, put people into trances and used hypnosis, and because in the 1960s she had conducted experiments with LSD…. [Houston] conducted extensive dialogues with Athena [pagan Greek deity] on her computer.” Woodward then indicated that while Houston did not use any of these aforementioned techniques on Bill and Hillary Clinton, Houston at the White House in April 1995 did put Hillary through a visualization exercise, asking Hillary to shut her eyes and visualize meeting Eleanor Roosevelt. Woodward wrote, “Houston regarded it as a classic technique, practiced by Machiavelli, who used to talk to ancient men.” Hillary was then asked by Houston to play the part of and speak as Mrs. Roosevelt, and then Houston asked Hillary to visualize speaking to Mahatma Gandhi. Woodward revealed that in October and November 1995, “Houston virtually moved into the White House residence for several days at a time to help” with Hillary’s book It Takes A Village. And Woodward concluded the article by writing “Houston wondered what might happen if her role as advisor and friend to the first couple became public. ‘If I ever get caught,’ Houston asked Hillary, ‘what should I say?’ ‘Just tell the truth,’ Hillary replied, ‘Just tell them you’re my friend.’”
According to the Encyclopedia of Occultism & Parapsychology, Houston and her sexologist husband, Robert Masters, developed something known as “the Witches’ Cradle.” In March 1968, the NTL Institute (mentioned earlier in this article), presented a week-long seminar by Jean Houston and her staff titled “The Myth and Mystery of Isis and Osiris: A Journey of Transformation.” And in 1995, Houston authored The Passion of Isis and Osiris: A Union of Two Souls. Given that Bob Woodward felt it important to show Hillary’s connection to Houston and Houston’s “dialogues with Athena,” one must wonder why the press did not explore Bob Dole’s being a Shriner “noble” of Isis Temple (Isis was a pagan Egyptian deity) for some 40 years in Salina, Kansas. And given that Athena is important to Jean Houston, it is relevant that The Encyclopedia of Mythology indicates Athena “played a predominant role in the construction of the Trojan Horse, which she was said to have dreamed up.” Could it be that Jean Houston introduced the “Trojan Horse” of New Age spirituality into the White House and society at large to change the nation’s consciousness away from Judeo-Christian moral absolutes? Remember, New Ager Dr. Shirley McCune said: “What we’re into is the total restructuring of society.”
