Could it be.....

A CONSPIRACY OF 

"THE LEFT"

"The presence of paranoia does not prove the absence of plots and plans.  Remember--it's not paranoia if they really are out to get you."  Henry Kissenger

"It is in politics and economics that will to power becomes really dangerous...that the rights of the collectivity take precedence over...the rights of man..."

"Here is one optimist's reason for believing unity will prevail... I'll bet that within the next hundred years, nationhood as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. A phrase briefly fashionable in the mid-20th century -- 'citizen of the world' -- will have assumed real meaning by the end of the 21st ..." -- U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbot, TIME magazine column, July 20, 1992.]

"Permanent crisis justifies permanent control
...by the agencies of the central government..." 
Brave New World Revisited

"They are slaves who fear to speak

For the fallen and the weak...

They are slaves who dare not be

In the right with two or three."

James Russell Lowell (Stanzas on Freedom -1843)

"Limits to Growth" (1972) predicted the impending end of life as we know it due to population grown and depletion of resources; calls for international action of "unprecedented scale and scope".  "We believe in fact that the need will quickly become evident for social innovation to match technical change, for radical reform of the institutions and political process at all levels, including the highest, that of world polity.  And since intellectual enlightenment is without effect if it is not also political, THE CLUB OF ROME also will encourage the creation of a world forum where statesmen, policy-makers, and scientists can discuss the dangers and hopes for the future global system without the constraints of formal intergovernmental negotiation."

Convention on the Rights of Child

adopted by the UN General Assembly Nov. 20, 1989

Communist Party platform under Lenin called for "establishment of nurseries for infants and children in all shops, factories and other enterprises that employ women"

Article 12.1 Grants children the right to express their own views freely in all matters

Article 13.1 Grants children the right to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds

Article 14:1 Grants children the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion

Article 15:1 Grants children the right to freedom of association and peaceful assembly

16:1 Grants children the right to privacy in the family, home, or correspondence

strips authority for child-rearing from parents and gives it to the government

 

October 2, 1994 column by Arnold Beichman, Washington Times: "Weeds In the Child's Garden of Rights."  "From Canada a warning voice is heard against ratification of a UN covenant which could 'advance a radical agenda' focused on parental authority and the normal historic family of Western society."

"In November 1989, the UN General Assembly adopted a convention, the language of which was replete with the kind of pieties so useful to avant-garde social engineers who want a new world order reflecting their weltanschauung.  The UN declaration stressed the rights of children to be raised 'in a spirit of peace, dignity, tolerance, freedom, equality and
solidarity.'  Who could argue against so majestic a declaration, so luscious a sugar-coated package?  But the devil is in the details, the subsidiary clauses, the bureaucratic guidelines --and that is the alarm which the Canadian magazine, 'Western Report,' published in Vancouver, was sounding."

[Remember that the Clintons have vowed to get this 'convention' implemented in the U.S. by hook or by crook--by legislation or Executive Order or by step-by-step agency regulations...??]

In 1990 there was the UN World Summit for Children.  "The 'Summit' attended by representatives from 71 states [remember the UN refers to countries as "states"], promulgated a world declaration comprising 54 articles calling upon governments everywhere to place the rights of children high on the national agenda.   Without a word to the Canadian House of Commons or the people of Canada, Prime Minister Mulroney signed the UN pronouncement and created a Children's Bureau, a new billion-dollar bureaucracy to administer his unilateral commitment." [Deja vu, Red, White and Blue copycat, 1999??]

"As is usual in radical blueprints for remaking the world, many of the declaration's provisions are unexceptional ... Taken out of context, warns the 'Western Report' writer, Celeste McGovern, 'the document's ambiguous phrasing raises some red flags.'"

[Note how it is phrased: 'As is usual in radical blueprints for remaking the world.'   People tend to focus on the "who could object to this" type of content and miss the "red flags." ]

Warnings of Canadian grassroots groups (1994) included warnings that the proposed treaty "ignores the rights of parents...if these functions are not clearly given to parents and the family, the powerful state agencies will assume them."  It goes on to cite Article 13, which gives children the "right to freedom of expression...the right to seek, receive, and impart information of all kinds...in the form of art or through any other media of the child's choice." [1999, note the most recent pronouncements of the American Psychiatric Association and the American Library Association asserting the rights of children to delve into pornography, etc., and to participate in acts by pedophiles if they do so "consensually."]

Article 20 "gives the State the right to remove children from their homes 'for their best interests when necessary.'  That's the kind of bureaucratese which makes civil servants purr with joy since they will define the child's 'best interests' and they will define when it is 'necessary' to remove the child from a family."

Mr. Mulroney's Children's Bureau spawned a second bureaucracy, "Brighter Futures Campaign." [1999: Think about all the emerging groups in the U.S. to bring about success, etc., for our children...]  The Canadian Children's Bureau promoted good-sounding things like research into childhood asthma and cancer [Notice all the ads here for helping asthmatic children all
springing forth in 1999?] and also started a LOBBYING EFFORT TO OUTLAW SPANKING EVEN THOUGH THERE IS A DISTINCT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SPANKING AND CHILD ABUSE. [Emphasis capital letters added here.]

1994 column continues: "Statistics Canada, an official govt. agency, is seeking 'to develop a new definition of family because it believes the traditional family is beyond recovery,' yet researchers have found that more than 80% of Canadians live in 2-parent, heterosexual families."
"Statscan is seeking a broader definition of family which would include 'gay and lesbian families,' and 'an increase in awareness of the homosexual presence.'"

1999:  Read the headlines; read the school programs being forced in; read the news features lauding gay/lesbian activities, gay/lesbian parents; notice the story lines of movies and books. Note the "need" for govt. and business day-care centers because single mothers have nowhere to leave their children while they work; note the "need" for schools to be
"families" in today's changed "family structures."  1999 dots had a lot preceding them. But, "it's for the children" so it's
all "needed." Who could object to wanting children to live in a "safe environment" and have "freedom"? Not mentioned in the Beichman column were the UN Rights of the Child provisions such as being free to choose their own religion OR not to have a religion; freedom to choose their own associates [...don't tell me I can't be in the Trenchcoat Mafia???]; the right to an education [where and for how long??] Lots in the details.  Lots already been eased in every so carefully in the five years since Mr. Beichman warned that the "radical agenda of the anti-family bureaucracy and its supportive lobby groups" were working to "change forever the quality of family life in Canada."  [AND EVERYWHERE ELSE, INCLUDING THE U.S.]

    "The most difficult transition to make is from an anthropocentric to a biocentric norm of progress.  The solution is simply for us as humans to join the earth community as participating members, to foster the progress and prosperity of the bioregional communities to which we belong.  A bioregion is an identifiable geographical area of interacting life systems that is relatively self-sustaining in the ever-renewing processes of nature.  Such a bioregion is a self-propagating, self-nourishing, self-educating, self-governing, self-healing, and self-fulfilling community.  For humans to assume rights to occupy land by excluding other lifeforms from their needed habitat is to offend the community in its deepest structure.  Further, it is even to declare a state of warfare, which humans cannot win..."

    UNESCO: Its Purpose and its Philosophy
    "The general philosophy of UNESCO should be a scientific world humanism, global in extent and evolutionary in background...In its education program it can stress the ultimate need for world political unity and familiarize all people with the implications of the transfer of full sovereignty from separate nations to a world organization...political unification in some
    sort of world government will be required....Tasks for the media division of UNESCO (will be) to promote the growth of a common outlook shared by all nations and cultures...to help the emergency of a single world culture...Even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugnic problem is examined with the greatest care, and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that now is unthinkable may at least become thinkable."

    MULLER ON EDUCATION

    "I had written an essay which was circulated by UNESCO, and which earned me the title of "Father of Global Education.'  I was educated badly in France I've come to the conclusion that the only correct education that I have received in my life was from the United Nations.  We should replace the word politics by planetics.  We need planetary management, planetary caretakers.  We need global sciences.  We need a science of a global psychology, a global sociology, a global anthropology.  Then I made my proposal for a World Core Curriculum."  Speech delivered at the University of Denver in 1995 (The World Core Curriculum has received the Department of Education's stamp of approval through the National Diffusion Network for use in public schools.) Robert Muller's School of Ageless Wisdom is fully certified by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) He is also Chancellor of the University of Peace in Costa Rica and one of the major promoters of peace education initiatives through the United Nations.

    Whatever happened the liberals insistence upon the separation of church and state?

    "Assisting the child in becoming an integrated individual who can deal with personal experience while seeing himself as a part of the `greater whole.' In other words, promote growth of the group idea, so that the group good, group understand, group interrelations and group goodwill replace all limited, self-centered objectives, leading to group consciousness." Trojan Horse, Brenda Scott and Samantha Smith

    The following is from the Preface to "The Robert Muller School; World Core Curriculum Manual"

    "The underlying philosophy upon which the Robert Muller School will be found in the teachings set forth in the books of Alice A. Bailey, by the Tibetan teacher, Djwhal Khul (published by Lucis Publishing Company, 113 University Place, 11th floor, New York NY 10083) and the teachings of M. Morya as given in the Agni Yoga Series books (published by Agni Yoga Society, Inc., 319 West 107th Street, New York, NY 10025).  

    Webmaster:  I was unsure whether this School of Ageless Wisdom actually existed.  It does.  I visited it in Arlington, Texas.  No one answered my knock but there was a car in the driveway with a Clinton Gore bumper sticker.

    VISION 2020

    Dear Friends,

     For the past 3 months I have been working on researching my local school  district's proposal to convert to a charter district (via California Senate  Bill 1705).  Because this district (Capistrano Unified) has a track record  of implementing all aspects of the federal education laws (Goals  2000/School to Work/Outcome Based Education, etc), I have much spent time  trying to reveal the motives behind the charter district proposal.

     In my recent research on this local issue, I needed to access the local  county STW plan, which is called Vision 2020 (which was put into place in  1997).  Usually I am more shrewd than this, but I must admit that I have  been under the impression since '97 that "Vision 2020" was just the name
     given to our local STW plan.  WRONG!

     While doing an Internet search to locate the website for the Orange County Dept of Education's Vision 2020 link, I was appalled to see literally  hundreds of Vision 2020 websites.  After clicking around on them, it became
     clear that Vision 2020 is the name being given to ALL cities/county
     level/international level/university level/corporate level/ even churches'
     Vision 2020 plans.

     Let me explain.  What you will find as you surf through the various Vision
     2020 sites, is that it is no coincidence that they are all named Vision
     2020.  At first glance I thought, well maybe alot of these sites have to do
     with optometry or something.  NOT!  What you will see is that they all have
     to do with community planning and development, global governance goals,
     sustained development, food distribution systems, transportation systems,
     global economy, workforce training systems (STW), ENVIRONMENTALISM, planned
     economies, human resource development, etc.

     I could not fathom what it was I was uncovering as I pursued this web  search.  It is sickening when it hits you that this IS the global agenda,  Vision 2020.  I am sure it originates at the UN, but still need to do more  research.  I wanted to give you all the heads up on my discoveries and  include here various links to just a few of the participants--so you will
     see the diversity of participants.  Most disturbing is the number of churches involved in Vision 2020 (which I believe is part of the global
     spirituality component of the plan).  So far I have found links for two Presbyterian churches, a Methodist church, and a Baptist church--and that  was just on one search engine through the first 50 hits for Vision 2020.  I  will continue to update as I do this research.  It appears that all the  church Vision 2020 sites are geared to raising money to increase church
     membership, but no real explanation for the name Vision 2020 is stated at any of these websites.

     I have found a Vision 2020 link for Yellowstone National Park (but it
     references the entire park system as involved in it), the US Space Command
     site (where it speaks of global engagement and global partnerships), the US
     Chemical Industry, several universities and a zillion local Vision 2020
     plans in most states.  I found a key site for Vision 2020 in Malaysia, one
     for India, and two for Canada.

     I will give you a glimpse of the Vision 2020 site for Ireland's University
     of Limerick because it is so absolutely frightening...  please do read
     this!

     I hope you too will see this as an urgent issue and help pass this
     information around to other activists.  The various links will appear at
     the end of this excerpt from Ireland.

     Thanks and God bless you,
     Eileen Spatz


     2.2 The detailed Vision 2020 process (outlined in 2.1) was used because:
     (i) it was felt that the future of the University of Limerick should be
     charted on the basis of the views and opinions of those who would be an
     essential part of the organisation in the time ahead.
     (ii) the potential and possibilities for future development are such as
     would benefit from in-depth and rigorous analysis over a very broad canvas.
     While the period of development of the University from 1970 to 1995 could
     be construed as having to do mainly with establishing and developing a
     national reputation and extending this to the international domain, the
     next 25 years can hardly avoid focusing on the creation and sustaining of a
     strong international reputation. The serious consolidation of the
    University of Limerick in the international sphere raises many exciting and
     far reaching issues and visions which span a very broad area. For instance,
     the external environment, within which the University will need to chart
     its development, can be expected to contain the following characteristics:
     · Increasing intensification of the process of globalisation under the
     impetus of technological advance and geopolitical trade block
     consolidation; and this globalisation will take place in the context of a
     multi-polar trading and development world which is replacing the old
     bi-polar world;
     · The all-pervasive growth of informatics and consolidation of the
     "Information Age". The resulting information society will generate
     societal, economic, cultural and organisational issues which simply did not
     manifest themselves during the last 25 years. Studies show that the
     information society, for instance, will:
     - impact in a fundamental way on the economy and on employment;
     - lead to far-reaching change in basic social and democratic values in the
     "Virtual Community";
     - influence the nature, organisation and delivery of public services;
     - put new pressures on and influence the cultural dimension of life and
    shape the future of communications, particularly the media;
     - redefine the parameters for sustainable growth, technology and
     infrastructural development.
     · New forms of entrepreneurship and enterprise operating successfully in a
     global and information society context;
     · Environmental concerns, of a different nature and more intensely
     expressed than in the past;
     · Societal values taking on different emphases than in the past;
     · The growth and development of a more aesthetic value system and leisure
     culture putting a sharp focus on, for instance, music and the arts,
     literature and tourism - and by extension the potential for development
     enshrined in the Irish Diaspora;
     · New forms of quality, qualitative concerns and automation coming to bear
     on the future manufacturing process across all sectors;
     · Well-focused strategic alliances between organisations and corporations
     throughout the world since the potential for and scale of development will
     be such as will be beyond the scope of any one organisation.


     SECTION 3

     SUMMARY OF THE FINDINGS WHICH EMANATE FROM EACH OF THE WORKING TEAM REPORTS
     ON:

     · THE UNIVERSITY & SOCIETY
     · THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
     · EDUCATING THE WHOLE PERSON
     · TEACHING AND PROGRAMMES
     · RESEARCH
     · EXTERNAL AND NETWORKS
     · QUALITY
     · PEOPLE
     · RESOURCING VISION 2020
     3.1 THE UNIVERSITY & SOCIETY
     3.1.1 The broad thrust of the report:
     · The team adopted as its guiding principle: "Embodying the Creation of
     Knowledge in a Global Village".
     · Traditionally, universities have concerned themselves with the creation
     of bodies of knowledge and the creation of knowledgeable bodies. In a
     period of rapid population growth, the University of Limerick achieved
     particular success in fostering the expansion of the Irish high-tech sector.
     · This function is under threat from a number of interacting social,
     demographic and technological change forces. But change brings with it new
     opportunities as well as threats.
     · The report outlines how these changes will affect the environment of the
     University of Limerick, and suggests how the University might transform
     itself to pursue relevant economic and social goals in a rapidly evolving
     and competitive market situation.
     · It concludes that a future based on multidisciplinarity and, in later
     years specialisation, within a small set of strategically chosen areas,
     will best serve the institution and Irish society at large.
     · A concentration of effort, starting in the very near future, will be
     needed to realise this vision, and the effort will require fundamental
     changes in attitudes, operations and structures.
     3.1.2 Structure of report:
     The report is organised in five main sections:
     · What is a university?
     · What are the five most significant elements of our external environment?
     · What will constitute a university and society in 25 years?
     · Charting a future for the University of Limerick.
     · New directions.
     The report also includes, as appendices, a number of position papers which
     were reviewed by the Working Team in the course of its deliberations.
     3.1.3 Facets of a University:
     In attempting to answer the question "what is a university?", the report
     highlights the multifaceted nature of a university. Different universities
     at different junctures emphasise different facets:
     · An inventory (both physical and human) of knowledge about the world;
     · A community of scholars concerned with the discovery, integration,
     application, and dissemination of knowledge;
     · An oligopolistic supplier of (professional) qualifications and networks
     which simplify labour market access;
     · A social space where young people have formative experiences;
     · A regionally monopsonistic employer;
     · An engine for social and/or economic development.
     Each of these facets is reviewed and discussed in turn. The report
     concludes that the extent to which any university is perceived as "good"
     will depend on which of a series of personal viewpoints and values holds
     sway in a broad social arena, and that perhaps a pragmatic long-term
     strategy is necessary which involves striking a delicate balance between
     opposing views.
     The approach adopted in the report is one based on choice - a university
     can choose to emphasise particular facets and if it succeeds in emphasising
     the correct ones, it succeeds.
     3.1.4 Five Elements of our Environment/Scenarios for 2020:
     The report then proceeds to attempt to identify some of the elemental
     forces that may shape universities over the next two decades. Five elements
     are identified, and each is explored in turn:
     · Society
     · Demography
     · Technology
     · Economic Development
     · New Sites of Scholarship
     In the case of "Society", the possibility that Ireland's traditional
     commitment to the social may solidify in the face of an increasingly
     individualistic (and potentially fragmented) external world is raised. This
     would result in:
     · Greater emphasis on social stability and cohesion;
     · A desire to escape from an entirely materialistic society;
     · A sense of pride in a country that emphasises equity.
    > On the other hand, individualism may come to the fore, in an increasingly
     materialistic and uncaring world.
     The existence of an intricate network of social institutions is relatively
     recent and fragile (cf. events in Eastern Europe). Fragmentation of social
     institutions has implications for university education.
     The review of "demography" concludes that, on certain assumptions derived
     from a HEA study, the University of Limerick can look forward to healthy
     growth in total enrolment (by about 34%) in the period to 2015. However,
     even accepting these assumptions (which require further analysis), there
     may well be a fundamental shift in the composition of society, with a
     consequent impact on the quantitative demand for educational services.
     Issues concerning admission standards, a possible pecking order among
     institutions, and the educational demands of an ageing population will
     arise.
    As a result of emerging trends in "technology", the simultaneous liberation
     of space, the elimination of human intermediaries, and the creation of work
     from home, produces a series of revolutionary threats and opportunities.
     These technical changes are difficult to comprehend and to project; they
     are occurring rapidly, and changes in one sphere are reflected in and
     generate changes in other spheres.
     The advent of the new age of work (with the home being used increasingly as
     the location for both part-time and full-time working careers) will pose
     new and different issues for education:
     · A requirement for continuous retraining and updating of competencies;
     · An emphasis on communication skills, creativity, and multicultural
     appreciation.
     The key challenge facing universities is to remain relevant to the new
     emergent growth sectors, and to prepare society for the new world of work.
     Under "Economic Development", the report reviews recent Irish industrial
     development policy, and draws the conclusions (inter alia) that:
     · The strategy which was based on Ireland's role as a gateway for US
     high-tech firms seeking a European toe-hold remains valid;
     · Indigenous firms should be resourced and encouraged to exploit the
     opportunities opened up by the combination of modern technologies and the
     information age with developments in Irish art and culture.
     The report also examines the inter-relation of economic development and
     social issues, and predicts that the University of Limerick has the
     opportunity to be a pioneer in genuinely improving access to education, and
     thereby contributing to social development and greater social harmony in
     our local and national community.
     In discussing the "Shifting Sites of Scholarship" the report notes that:
     · Whereas fifty years ago universities had localised monopolies of
     scholarly activity, there is now a proliferation of institutions and other
     educational bodies resulting in greater competition in traditional markets,
     with the university just one of many players;
     · Equally, there is a polarisation in labour markets, with new information
     technologies giving rise to opportunities for both highly specialised
     professionals and generalists.
     All of this is a natural consequence of knowledge as the central economic
     resource in late modern society - its very centrality making it unlikely
     that it will be left exclusively in the hands of collegially organised
     institutions. If knowledge has become power then ownership of knowledge
     becomes contested.
     The conclusions from the analysis of these five elements are brought to
     bear in the section of the report headed "Charting the University of
     Limerick's Future".
     Before that, however, the report develops a number of scenarios for 2020.
     The purpose of the scenarios is to integrate themes already identified in
     the report, in order to demonstrate the potency of these forces taken
     together.
    A number of possible scenarios for society are developed, basically a
     series of alternative stories representing and reflecting areas of
     uncertainty about the future:
     · The subject - Individual (I) Vs. Community (We).
     · Society - Coherence Vs. Fragmentation.
     The scenarios are described under four dimensions:
     · "I will - The world fragments into a working pandemonium of individuals,
     organised by jobs rather than geography".
     · "Consumer Land - The world is populated by consumers rather than
     citizens."
     · "Ecotopia - The world slows the growth of development in reaction to  early decades of high crime and chaos."
     · "New Civics - The world settles into small powerful city states."

    For those of you who think that stopping UNESCO and our government's Presidential involvement in that organization does NOT have a direct bearing on Education, I suggest you go to the UNESCO site and read their agenda for Education world wide at the UNESCO site for their "Second International Congress Technical and Vocational Education" at:

    http://www.unesco.org/education/educprog/seoul/document/cover.html

    Pay close attention to the buzz words used on the Tech Ed pages such as "life long learners" "global economy" "bridge to the future",   "world of work" , etc etc. 

    I also suggest you surf around the main site and beside this on Tech Education go back a bit to the UNESCO main index and read about Sex Ed and Population planning and stuff.

    If this is all just a kook conspiracy theory, then I am glad I am in good company with Bob Barr and others in Congress who have finally seen the light.

    For years we have asked "where is all this education crap coming from", perhaps this site I listed above will just begin to shed some light on that question. It's the old which came first the chicken or the egg question.

    Thanks to Lois

    New Age Roots

    Dark Foundations of the New World Order

    Steve Bonta

    The New American, March 1, 1999

    Although the Theosophical Society remains a force in the occult/New Age camp, its influence today seems to be confined to the education (or re-education) of those seeking alternatives to Western religion. The Society at Adyar parted ways with European and American power elites back in the 1920s, with the expulsion from the Society in America of Alice Bailey and her husband Foster Bailey. The Baileys inaugurated the Lucis Trust, a New York-based organization responsible for giving the New Age movement most of its modem organization and political trappings.

    Like Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey claimed to have been overshadowed on various occasions by an "Ascended Master" (named Djwhal Khul), and to have penned many volumes of occult writing under his influence. The Lucis Trust, like the Theosophical Society, claims as one of its purposes the advancement of interest in occult and arcane religion. It runs a number of non-profit "arcane schools" designed to teach various occult doctrines and practices.

    The Lucis Trust is also aggressively involved in promoting a globalist ideology, which it refers to as "goodwill." Its World Goodwill organization is closely connected to international elitist circles. Authors and participants in its various conferences read like a Who's Who of the globalist insiders. Featured on its website, for example, is the Universal Declaration of Human Responsibilities, put forth in April 1998 as a companion document to the notorious UN Universal Declaration on Human Rights. Signatories to the World Goodwill document include: Helmut Schmidt, former chancellor of West Germany; Malcolm Fraser, former Australian prime minister; Oscar Arias Sanchez, former prime minister of Costa Rica; Shimon Peres; Robert McNamara; Paul Volcker; and Jimmy Carter. Indeed, the Lucis Trust enjoys consultant status at the United Nations and, judging from the political writings appearing in its publications, it is as much a political organization as an occult religious one.

    The following links are posted on the website of the Lucis Trust support group, the New Group of World Servers, one of four legs of the Lucis Trust, established up by Alice Bailey.

    http://www.ngws.org/

    http://www.ngws.org/service/groups.htm

    The groups comprise the real working legs of the new age movement, taking world civilization where Bailey had envisioned through her mediumistic writings, first published under the name Lucifer Publishing company.  Their real aims are to establish a one-world governance/civilization, through collective love and "good will" and human service as a paradigm-shift process to usher in a new world order as described in Bailey's demonic books. Not everyone who is referenced below is necessarily a new ager, but it does reflect the inclusive drift of their larger working agenda.

    Correction:  I had given Maurice Strong credit for Earth Day.  I appreciate Mr. McConnell setting me straight.

    Sent: Thursday, May 04, 2000 12:22 PM
     Subject: From Earth Day Founder


     Dear Friends,

     Your web site brings out repeatedly the many conflicting forces at work in  society.  I happen to be an evangelical Christian - and was the founder of  the real Earth Day. Please to to my web site: www.earthsite.org.  Note:
    "Commandments of Jesus."  I would be delighted if you would give me a call.

     John McConnell  -- the founder of the original Earth Day.

    I did go to Mr. McConnell's web site (http://www.earthdayone.org/charta.htm#Prelude) and responded by e-mail...

    Dear Mr. McConnell,

     Please forgive me for taking so long to respond to your email.  My yard was recently on the garden tour for the local botanical garden.  Needless to say I have been "sowing, hoeing and mowing" from morning till night.

     Then my computer got a "worm"!  Unfortunately this worm did nothing to aerate my soil and merely wreaked havoc on data!  I feel like composting my computer.

     I am finally back and ready to respond.

     I did check out the web site to which you referred me.  I must tell you the inclination toward world government has me alarmed.  I find it amazing that groups of non governmental organizations (unelected) would presume to dictate and assume the such power over the people of the world.  After reading David Hornbeck's book Human Capital I am quite aware of the determination of these groups to "create a sense of crisis" and then come up with "the answer" (predetermined and always enhancing their own power and advocacy group).  By manipulating opinion through altruistic jargon people are convinced to cede their independence and individualism to become
    "human capital" to the world economy.  Man has become merely a cog whose purpose is to create wealth and deposit it into the hands of a world elite.  Man's only  purpose is to create wealth to be used by the "elite" for the "common good" according to their determination of that good.  No longer is the individual a special child of God created in His image for His purpose, allowed to dream and become...whatever that may be...farmer or president.  By taxing the world this "world" body would have immense power to become the foxes telling the chicken what's for dinner.  And I do not doubt that our own  country, the beacon of hope and freedom for the world, the most generous of all nations, would then become ripe for the plucking.

     Socialism has never worked.  It has merely bred tyrants and dictators (Lenin, Stalin, Mao for example) and led to blood baths.  Whatever group that tyrant decided was "inferior" or a "threat to the common good" was annihilated...gypsies, Jews, Christians, freedom fighters.  It is freedom that has elevated the standard of living for the people of this country. It is freedom to realize the potential of each individual that we should "redistribute" and then whatever "resources" each country has could be developed without making the entire world generic according to the supposed egalitarian edicts of a world elite.

     I realize it was an ideal of Plato's to breed an "elite" to rule and provide for the less able masses.  Unfortunately, history has proven that such arrogance in the "elite" produced only contempt for the masses and a disregard for the value of human life.  The end justifies the means.

     You and I share a commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  Yet, I  wonder how we can be obedient to his "Great Commission" under the United Religions Initiative.  Can we truly love and not share the Truth and eternity with our fellow man?  How can we compromise God's Word and our Faith by coming to "consensus" on issues about which the Bible is so clear?  Are we not doing just what the last verse in the book of Judge's commented so sadly upon:  "And they all did what was right in their own eyes" ?

     I see the world government movement much like the building of the Tower of  Babel.  Man sets himself up as his own god.  We sow to the wind and will  reap the whirlwind.

     I will give you credit for being the founder of Earth Day (surely altruistic in its infancy), but was it your vision that it evolve into a symbol of the movement to confiscate private property, redistribute the wealth of the  world according to the whims of some world elite, and force Christians to compromise their absolutes to conform to the "current wisdom"?  I am concerned that we have come to worship the creation and not the Creator.

     You are now in your eighties.  You have had a very full life.  I have just  turned fifty (that was a tough day).  We will have much to tell our Savior when we see him face to face.  I know you, like me, long to hear him say, "Well done my good and faithful servant."

     Thank you for writing me.  I am honored.

     In His love...
    Your sister in Christ,
    Sharman Ramsey

    Castro's Strong
    friend in U.N.

    Shares socialist agenda,
    disdain for industrialized nations

    Maurice Strong, special adviser to the U.N. secretary-general on reform, recently concluded a visit to Cuba, promising greater cooperation and economic assistance to the communist-ruled island, according to Radio Habana Cuba, the official broadcasting service of the Cuban government.


    Maurice Strong, special adviser to the U.N. secretary-general on reform, recently met with Cuban President Fidel Castro

    Speaking with Castro and a number of top Cuban officials on a wide variety of topics, including cooperation between Cuban universities and the U.N. University of Peace, Strong also spoke about the upcoming U.N. Millennium Summit in New York, the purpose of which is to discuss the role of the United Nations in the 21st century.

    Both Strong and Castro have voiced similar views on socialism and the future of humanity. Strong, despite having made a fortune in oil and utilities, is a self-described socialist and has earlier stated that for humanity to survive, it may be necessary "for industrial civilization to collapse."

    Castro recently made a similar declaration while addressing a conference of underdeveloped nations in Havana in mid-April. Castro stated that the world's leading industrial nations control a "cruel, unjust, inhuman, and racist" economic system that is "incapable of preserving the human race."

    Strong has close connections with numerous influential leaders in business and government around the world -- including the United States -- and is considered a possibility to fill the post of secretary general of the U.N. when the position again becomes open.

    In addition to his leftist political views, Strong is reputed to be an avid devotee of Gaia, the earth goddess, and is closely involved with the Temple of Understanding in New York.

    Strong's close working relationship with Castro stands in stark contrast to the recent condemnation of Cuba by another United Nations agency -- the U.N. Human Rights Commission, which has found Cuba guilty of continuing serious human rights abuses.

    Along with Strong, there are those who disagree with characterizations of Cuba as abusive.

    "Americans have been very propagandized against communism," said Lisa Valanti, president of the U.S.-Cuban Sister Cities Association, "against certain words that we use toward Cuba (such as) 'communist dictator,' 'anti-democratic' -- all these things which are in fact not real in Cuban life."

    U.S. citizens "know nothing about the reality of Cuban life," Valanti said.

    During an interview with Radio Havana, Valanti stated that the organization exists to "bring the people of one community into contact with people of another community," desiring to make "visible in the U.S. the realities of Cuban life."

    One hundred delegates from the year-old U.S.-Cuban Sister Cities Association began their conference in Havana just as Strong concluded his business and left the island.

    The U.S.-Cuban Sister Cities Association was founded in Pittsburgh in 1999 with three members: Mobile, Ala., Madison, Wis., and Pittsburgh, Pa. All three participating cities had made previous exchange arrangements with Cuba.

    Another 30 to 40 cities have expressed interest in the program. Students, religious leaders and business personnel are involved in the exchange programs.

    Participants in the organization's exchange programs are "seeds" whose ultimate goal is to put their view of Cuba "into political action," and to "impact legislatively," according to Valanti.

    Critics of the Castro regime, however, are not welcome to participate in the organization's activities, Valanti added.

     

     

    SYSTEMS THINKING AND GAIA (by Lynn Stuter)

    Systems thinking grew out the writings of Alfred North Whitehead. The science of systems thinking is accredited to a man by the name of Ludwig von Bertalanffy and his associates (one of whom is Ervin Laszlo, currently working with the United Nations). The generic term for systems thinking is general systems theory. A bit on Bertalanffy before I go on. Bertalanffy came to the United States from Germany on a Rockefeller grant. He returned to German-occupied Vienna, Austria in 1938. His biology textbooks were used by Hitler. He returned to the United States following WWII.

    General systems theory states, simply, that the world is a system of subsystems (also called systems) all interconnected and interdependent to form a wholistic or holistic system; that within any system is an infrastructure that is analogous across systems, irrespective of physical appearance. Stated a bit differently, but to the same effect, is the Gaia hypothesis: the world is a living breathing organisim, irreducible to its parts; that what affects one part, affects all parts; that in the name of saving space-ship Earth, we must change our society. The Gaia hypothesis adds a spiritual dimension to systems thinking.

    Systems thinking sees everything as wholistic, with all parts interconnected, interdependent. In the words of Senge, 1990, (The Fifth Discipline; the Art and Practice of a Learning Organization), systems thinking "is the fifth discipline because it is the conceptual cornerstone that underlies all of the five learning disciplines of this book." This discipline is the foundation upon which the other four disciplines function: personal mastery, mental models, shared vision, team learning.

    Recognize the terms? The systems thinking model, because of its wholistic nature, is cyclical--a circle or a spiral. The beginning is the end. You start at point A and your destination is point A. Thus it is that mankind can be said to be "creating the future." At point A "you" decide what "you" want the world to look like in x number of years. This is your goal or outcome. Example: the exit outcomes for the school, state, federal: what the child should know and be able to do as a result of his/her educational experience; what the child should look like. Now you align everything you do to achieve point A, the outcome. In this endeavor you align the curriculum, instruction and teaching methodologies to the outcome to ensure that it is reached; the measure of which is the assessment. I call this designing down, aligning back. It is also known as backmapping.

    The technical term is a syllogism: a process used by behavioral scientists to bring about planned change. At this point, I shall digress to the philosophy behind systems thinking as it is important to understanding the semantics of systems thinking. Systems thinking sees everything as a system, analogous to all other systems irrespective of physical appearance. All things are equal, whether it be the ecosystem, or mankind--man is no better than animal or nature.

    The underlying philosophy here is humanism that maintains that man is devoid of spirituality or self-determinism. It therefore follows that man must be conditioned (the process) to his environment (the outcome or goals), whatever it is decided that environment will be (creating the future). As stated in the Humanist Manifesto II, "…we can discover no divine purpose or providence for the human species. While there is much that we do not know, humans are responsible for what we are or will become.

    No deity will save us; we must save ourselves." All the exit outcomes from all the school districts, states, and Goals 2000 are what man must be conditioned to to achieve the perceived environment. That perceived environment is based on "future trends" which, again, is cyclical, deciding what we want the world to look like (in the 21st Century), then back mapping. In this same vein, outcome based education is education based on outcomes--starting at the end and back mapping, ensuring the outcome. In researching "future trends" it becomes very obvious that they are based, not on fact, but on the doomsday prophesies of rabid environmental groups whose religious philosophy is very much humanistic/New Age. More on this later.

    Systems thinking, to repeat, sees everything as wholes. It is in this context that appear whole language; the wholistic education system incorporating all services to deal with the whole child--mentally, physically, emotionally; life-role or real-life (wholistic) education; constructivist (hands on) learning (the child reinventing the wheel); integrated curriculum deleting the lines of disciplines; thematic units addressing social or life related issues (wholistic); conflict resolution in pursuit of the collectivist (wholistic) society; peer tutoring; the child centered classroom; individual learning plans; …. Everything done is to achieve the whole, with all systems (everything done to produce the child who will look like the exit outcomes) interconnected and interdependent.

    Humanism is a religion that sees everything as wholistic, the basis of collectivist thought and action; it is the foundation upon which Marx built his philosophy (Marx saw Christianity as a religion of self-alienation, something to be stamped out at all cost). Marx believed the individual mind to be part of the universal mind (the wholistic mind), the collective. He saw the Hegelian dialectic as a process for achieving wholes, of Oneness of Mind through a process of thesis (an idea or proposition), antithesis (the opposite idea or proposition) and synthesis (the bringing together of thesis and antithesis). Synthesis then becomes the new thesis, and through a continuing process, Oneness of Mind theoretically occurs. If you look consensus up in the dictionary, you will discover that it means "solidarity of belief"; continual evolution to oneness of mind. To achieve consensus (wholism), one must give up his/her individual beliefs and conform to the group beliefs--again, oneness of mind. Left to its own devices, however, consensus is uncontrollable. Thus, to control the process, and insure the outcome, facilitators are trained in group dyanmics (how groups function) to ensure the outcome. Again we start at point A and return to point A. In the process, all participants hold the outcome instead of just the facilitator. In the words of one participant, the job of the facilitator is to make everyone in the group think its their idea.

    Because of mulitple parties being involved in consensus, it cannot be rigid except in outcome. In each instance thesis and antithesis come into play, with synthesis as the outcome whether achieved incrementally or in one cycle. Thus it is that there is no right or wrong answer, everything is relative, situational. (This is the why and wherefore, also, of no right answer in the classroom.) Everything is thesis and antithesis, ever evolving in a spiral, whether individual thought or collective thought to the next higher plain. This is, incidentally, the process of attaining "higher order thinking." This is the reason for the teacher as facilitator, the "guide on the side; not the sage on the stage."

    The facilitatiave process is not one that appeals to the cognitive domain; it appeals to the affective domain--how people feel. In achieving consensus, it is not what one knows about a subject that matters, it is how one feels that is important. As so adequately demonstrated by the final evaluation on the Schools for the 21st Century in Washington state, content is "excellence in terms of the change agenda," process is the "destination," the "product," and "what learning is about;" emotionality and affectivity are the means by which content and process will be achieved. If you want to change someones belief system, you do not appeal to what they know, you appeal to what they believe, how they feel about a subject. In a consensus circle, the facilitator sets the stage by appealing to the affective domain of the participants--emotionality is imperative. If they have learned nothing else from sex ed programs and the resulting rise in teen pregnancies, they have learned that appealing to emotionality sets the stage if the intent is for people to compromise their principles. Once the stage has been set, affective is brought into conflict with cognitive, and the individual pushed to conform to the group belief system. Once that has occurred, and individual principles have been compromised, it is very hard for the individual to reclaim his individuality. To do so requires breaking away emotionally from the new "family" and again thinking for oneself The social acceptance within the circle makes this very hard for most people to do--a facet that is counted on. What people learn about each other, intimately, within the circle "of trust" also becomes a coercive factor against anyone who might attempt to break away.

    In the classroom, systems thinking plays out in the focus of the classroom. No longer is the focus knowledge. Now the focus is "real-life" or "life-role" education. Everything is set in the context of children "experiencing" real life situations. Thus it is that the focus in the classroom is social or life-related issues taught in the context of unit themes or thematic units, whether it is gender, prejudice, discrimination, the environment, homosexuality, life styles, etc. The primary focus, however, is upon environmentalism, which is why parents are finding a lot of it in the classroom. This environmentalism, is not, in most cases, based on scientifically validated facts, but rather, on the doomsday prophesies of rabid environmentalists with a self-serving agenda--an agenda that plays itself out in such events as the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 and similar more recent events such as that in Japan. The fraudulent claim of global warming is a good example.

    Future trends harkens back to a man by the name of Jay W Forester and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. (Forester was Peter Senge's mentor for 20 years according to Senge.) In 1972 Forester established a world simulation model known as World 3 for the Club of Rome (one worlders). This was a computer simulation model that, according to inputs, predicted future scenarios. A book was written over the twenty scenarios predicted by the simulation model, called "Limits to Growth" by Donnella Meadows.

    None of the predictions have come true, but that's beside the point. It is the doomsday prophesies that "we must change our ways if we are to save spaceship Earth" that dominates the scene. This is also what comes across in the classroom. The purpose is to turn children into political activists for the cause. The same is true for addressing other social or life related issues. This is what Washinton SPI Bergeson meant, in her state of education speech, when she said, "Education beats out fighting crime, holding the line on taxes, creating new jobs, improving access to health care, or protecting the environment. And, by the way, when we achieve our educational goals, all of these problems will be addressed in new and better ways." In his book, "A Strategy for the Future, the Systems Approach to World Order," Laszlo predicted that a more accurate and concise model of World 3 would be forthcoming by the mid-1980's. This, or something similar, is undoubtedly where the predictions of what the world will look like in the 21st Century are coming from. The point that needs to be made here, is that in predicting the future, the future can also be created, starting at point A and return to it. In other words, whatever the "we" want it to look like. What "we" want it to look like is manifesting itself now in the classrooms across America under Goals 2000, STW and the plethora of bills building the system.

    In creating the future, one of the first steps, is to analyze "where we are now" against "where we want to be". This is called a gap analysis. Undoubtedly most have heard this term. The gap analysis become the foundation of the change strategy--what "we" need to do to move people from "where they are now" to where "we want them to be"--from "here" to "there". The facilitative process then becomes the bridge between "here" and "there" whether in the classroom or in the community. This is why facilitators are used in the whole of the process, whether in the classroom or in establishing the mission and vision statements and the exit outcomes.

    Once the cyclical process is put in motion, theoretically it will envelope the whole community at some point--except for holdouts like me. The success of systems thinking, however, is contigent on it encompassing everyone--all. Because not everyone can be so controlled, the necessity comes eventually, in the interests of the system, to invoke tyrannical means of achieving and maintaining compliance. This is why, in the USSR, dissidents were labeled "mentally ill" and incarcerated.

    What is being achieved in America today is known as transformational Marxism, meaning that whereas it was achieved through revolution in Russia, and attempted in Germany under Hitler and Italy under Mussolini, it is being achieved through gradualism in the United States. This is where the term transformational comes into play, especially in the third stage of OBE known as transformational outcome based education wherein social and life related issues become the primary focus of the classroom with knowledge only incorporated as it is used and applied.

    Systems thinking is the method of achieving and maintaining a planned economy, in which every facet is carefully monitored and carefully controlled, including the human factor. Accountability, under systems thinking, is the gathering and analysis of statistically data to measure evolution to outcomes. Thus the establishment of huge data banks housing personally identifiable information on every man, woman, and child.   Coercion becomes a definite factor in achieving the desired outcome--whether it is determined that the parent, teacher or child is the problem.

    This is not in Global Governance, but Lynn helps put the entire process into perspective.  I am truly grateful for those who share their understanding with the rest of us.

    Remember who to thank in your community for bringing you into conformity with these goals.

    Key Players Control World Money Supply

    By John M. Berry

    Washington Post Staff Writer

    Sunday, June 28, 1998; Page H01

    BASEL, Switzerland - Ten times a year, the financial barons who control the world's supply of money gather here on the bank of the Rhine River for drinks and dinner - and secret conversations that can shape the course of the global economy.

    The 13 members of this economic cabal meet on the glass-walled 18th floor of the round headquarters tower of an obscure institution known as the Bank for International Settlements. From their seats at the conference table, they can look across the city and the river to Germany's Black Forest or farther west to French Alps on the horizon.

    As they arrive and greet one another by their first names, waiters hover with drinks - they know each one's favorite. For privacy and candor, no staff members are present, only the principals and occasionally a guest, such as Michel Camdessus, managing director of the International Monetary Fund.

    The members of this secretive group are the governors of the central banks of the Group of 10 industrial nations, plus Switzerland. The most powerful voice in the room is the U.S. representative - Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan or, if he can't attend, Vice Chairman Alice M. Rivlin.

    As befits its power, the United States alone has a second seat at the table, occupied by William J. McDonough, president of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. The 13th participant is the BIS's general manager, Andrew Crockett, a former Bank of England official.

    This is how global finance does its most sensitive business, in these quiet Sunday-night meetings. The central bankers talk informally - with no agenda other than what is on their minds. The financial intelligence that emerges from these meetings - and perhaps more important, the personal trust - helps keep the international banking system steady in turbulent times, such as the financial crisis that has swept Asia over the past year. Roots in a War

    But what, exactly, is the strangely named organization that hosts this secret conclave?

    The BIS was established in 1930 to assist in the payments of reparations owed by Germany and other losers in World War I to the victors. Over the years it has become a central bank for central banks. It has also emerged as a clearinghouse for regulators - helping them supervise commercial banks, oversee foreign exchange markets and protect the world financial system.

    Topic A on recent Sunday nights, of course, has been the financial crisis in Japan and other Asian nations. The 13 participants have discussed how to ease the Asian crisis and limit its impact on the rest of the world.

    The group has focused, in particular, on ensuring that the crisis doesn't threaten the world's intricate system of settling international transactions. A collapse of that payments system, as it's known, is a central banker's ultimate nightmare.

    Partly in response to the Asian crisis and partly to broaden its role beyond its European base, the BIS will open a satellite office in Hong Kong on July 10. The following day, the central bank governors will hold a regular monthly dinner outside Basel for the first time - in Tokyo.

    If the meeting room in Basel could speak, it would tell a history of global monetary policy. It was at one of the dinners in 1982 that then-Fed chairman Paul A. Volcker twisted arms - one source said "browbeat" -the other governors to come up with money and other actions to help limit the economic damage from that year's default by Mexico and later by other Latin America nations on their governments' debt owed to foreign banks.

    Mexico was the topic once again in late 1994 when the United States led a $50 billion bailout that involved money from the IMF, the United States and other countries and, as a backup, $10 billion from the BIS. That was an unusually contentious meeting because European central bank governors, including the powerful head of Germany's Bundesbank, Hans Tietmeyer, opposed the bailout on the grounds that it was unnecessary and a bad precedent.

    At one critical dinner, recalls former Fed vice chairman Alan Blinder, "we took a lot of heat about Mexico. We were lucky that Camdessus was there. He was a lightning rod. The others were mad at the United States, but more so at the IMF." In the end, the United States got its way. "By central bank standards, the talk is amazingly frank because there is no audience," said Blinder, now an economics professor at Princeton University. "There is this old cliché about 'full and frank' discussions among diplomats. That means they were stiff and didn't say anything.

    In this case, it really is frank. There is no gallery to play to. . . .You know, central bankers cooperate across national borders better than governments do, and I think this is one of the reasons."

    Another glimpse of the secretive group comes from E. Gerald Corrigan, a managing director at Goldman Sachs & Co. As president at the New York Fed from 1984 to 1993, Corrigan attended 115 consecutive monthly meetings at the BIS.

    With everyone at one table and "no staff, no agenda, no records and no communiqué . . . marvelous personal relationships developed," Corrigan recalls. "The consequence of that was that when something went wrong, working with these people was just so easy because of the trust developed by the frequency and the intimacy of the dinners. To me, that's the genius of the organization."

    During Corrigan's time, plenty did go wrong - particularly with the world's banks. The Japanese bubble was expanding toward the bursting point, which eventually sent Japanese banks into a downward spiral from which they still haven't recovered. The U.S. stock market crashed in October 1987, sending shock waves around the world. Foreign exchange crises were so frequent they are now barely remembered. Adding to the disarray was the view of the leading U.S. banker, Citicorp Chairman Walter Wriston, that large banks with diversified portfolios didn't need much capital.

    During those raucous years, financial institutions around the world were disregarding what Corrigan calls "prudential standards." The banks were lending like crazy, often in other countries where the bankers didn't understand the risks, and national bank regulators were not cracking down.

    With Volcker taking the lead, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, a BIS group, began trying to draft a new set of international standards for bank capital - that is, the amount of reserves institutions must have relative to the amount of loans they have on the books. Corrigan recalls that the Basel Committee wasn't getting anywhere until the Fed and the Bank of England found that they had separately come up with similar approaches.

    When the details were announced in January 1986, "instead of everybody getting mad at us, it became a rallying point," Corrigan said. "The next big obstacle was getting the Japanese on board. The big issue there was to what extent the standards would allow the Japanese banks to count their unrealized capital gains on stocks as part of the capital."

    An allowance was duly made for the Japanese, and Corrigan said, "I thought at the time it would come back to haunt them." As indeed it has.

    What analysts describe as the current "death spiral" of Japanese banks stems partly from the fact that every time the Japanese stock market falls, it reduces the amount of bank capital. That, in turn, makes it harder for Japanese banks to make new loans, which in turn limits economic growth - plunging the country deeper into economic crisis.

    Central bank staffers, too, use the BIS for bonding. As a result of their regular meetings here, senior members of the governors' staffs have developed a network of their own that can be activated in a crisis.

    Edwin M. "Ted" Truman, director of the Fed's international finance division, used that network last December, when there was a high risk that major South Korean banks would default on repayment of short-term debt owed to banks in Europe, Japan, Australia and the United States. Truman set up daily conference calls with his counterparts in all the home countries of the lending banks.

    In the daily calls, Truman and the other central bank staffers shared information about their lending banks' situations. The exposure of the banks varied greatly, and it was proving difficult to get an agreement that the banks would roll over the loans and extend their maturity. The conversations helped move the negotiations forward, and the rollovers took place in January.

    "This is a small illustration of the process," Truman said. "It's a sort of club, I guess . . . dealing with people we know."

    The BIS also has some formal committees handling arcane banking matters.

    Its Committee on Payment and Settlement Systems has been promoting better risk management by banks, better ways to settle transactions involving multiple currencies and better domestic payment systems. The Euro-Currency Standing Committee is studying how to reduce the vulnerability of the world financial system in the wake of the Asian crisis. And the Gold and Foreign Exchange Committee oversees world currency markets and is the only source of data on the size and transactions in that huge market.

    Of course, the G-10 governors don't have to come to the BIS to have dinner together. In fact, most years when the IMF and World Bank annual meetings are in Washington in September, there is no monthly meeting here, and Greenspan plays host at the Fed.

    A Bigger Board

    Historically, the BIS has been essentially a European institution with U.S. participation. In July 1994, however, the governors of the central banks of Canada and Japan were added to its board. More recently, nine additional nations outside Europe - Brazil, Mexico, Russia, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, India and Saudi Arabia - became members, bringing the total to 41.

    Almost 100 nations had representatives at the BIS annual meeting earlier this month, including central bankers from member nations and from those that do business with the bank. Similarly, at the monthly meetings, there is a well-attended session Monday afternoon on central banking topics, which is open to any central banker.

    Rivlin, the Fed vice chairman, says those wider afternoon sessions are valuable. "They are interesting," she said, "and I learn a lot."

    During the annual meeting this month, Julian Francis, the governor of the central bank of the Bahamas, said his institution - like many others from smaller nations - relies on the BIS for technical assistance in banking supervision, payments and settlements, and banking technology. The BIS

    has also helped in training some of his bank's employees. "We find it very useful," Francis said.

    As a bank, the BIS has deposits of about $112 billion, some of which is in gold. The funds are invested with commercial banks and in securities, but central bank depositors can withdraw them at any time. Smaller central banks use the BIS both as a convenient way to invest their reserves and to keep secret the way in which they are managing the money. Even the Fed has some reserves on deposit here. Last year the BIS made roughly $500 million on its banking activities.

    In some cases, BIS officials take great pains to make sure that orders to pay money out of the accounts of central banks in countries run by corrupt governments are related to the central bank's activities, rather than just the needs of some powerful official moving cash into his own secret account.

    All but 16 percent of the BIS shares are owned by its member central banks. The remainder are in private hands, as the result of the United States's failure in 1930 to pay for its shares; they were instead acquired by a group of American banks, which later sold them, mostly to individuals in Europe. Some of the French and Belgian shares went the same way.

    Even though the United States was included in the BIS from the beginning, the Fed's two seats on the board weren't filled until four years ago.

    Initially the United States objected to the BIS mission of facilitating payment of German reparations. At the peace conference that followed World War I, the United States had opposed such payments.

    At various points between 1930 and 1994, U.S. officials considered taking the board seats but a number of problems arose - such as the BIS membership of some communist nations in Eastern Europe - though not Russia, which has never been a member - and South Africa. With the end of the Cold War and of apartheid in South Africa, those barriers were gone.

    "The BIS . . . is now too valuable to the Federal Reserve in carrying out its statutory responsibilities for the [Fed] not to be a full participant

    in BIS institutional deliberations," Greenspan told Congress in explaining why the United States was finally joining the BIS board.

    Two Big Issues

    For the BIS staff, two big technical issues lie ahead:

    The first is how to deal with the advent of the European Central Bank, which will open its doors this week as part of the creation of the Euro to replace the currencies of 11 European countries. The ECB will take over virtually all of the monetary policy responsibilities of the Bank of France, the Bundesbank and their counterparts, though not those of the Bank of England, which is not adopting the Euro immediately. Obviously, the head of the ECB, Willem F. Duisenberg, former head of the Dutch central bank, will be added to the Sunday dinner list. But what of the others, whose power will have been greatly diminished?

    The second issue is whether to keep expanding BIS membership by including such nations as Malaysia, Argentina, Indonesia and Thailand - and in the process expand the bank's role in developing nations.

    Meanwhile, BIS chief Crockett hopes to make this city on the Rhine the center of information, advice and cooperation on international financial supervision. The secretariat of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision is here, as is the headquarters of the International Association of Insurance Supervisors. Crockett is hoping to persuade the organization of investment bank supervisors, which is located in Montreal, to move as well.

    The BIS set up shop in Basel originally in 1930 because it was about a day's train ride for the European central bankers. Now the institution has to decide just how far it will travel from its Swiss home to fulfill it: role as guardian of global finance.

    A9 Copyright 1998 The Washington Post Company

    President Abraham Lincoln warned us of these dangerous International bankers when he said "The money power preys upon the nation in times of peace & conspires against it in times of war. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces, as public enemies, all who even question its methods or throw light upon its crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me & the financial institutions at the rear, the latter is my greatest foe."

    President James A. Madison warned "History shows that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit and violent means possible to maintain control over governments by controlling the money and the issuance of it."

    President Thomas Jefferson once said "I sincerely believe that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid posterity under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale" and "The Central Bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the principles and form of our Constitution. I am an enemy to all banks, discounting bills or notes for anything but coin. If the American people allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent that their fathers conquered."

    Thomas Jefferson was prophetic when he spoke these words. America is now mortgaged to the hilt and when it all collapses, the International Bankers will end up owning everything. They gave us paper "money" and we gave them everything, our labor, our inventions, our land and our possessions. If we do not stop this crime from continuing we will end up very much like serfs from the middle ages who had to rent land from the Land-Lords.

    Bilderberg - 'summit' opens in Sintra under massive security
    (Click here for current list of participants)

    SAMPAIO ATTENDS SINTRA SUMMIT

    A massive security operation was launched in Sintra on Wednesday, in preparation for the
    arrival of some of the world's most powerful people. A special unit from the PJ (Judicial Police)
    was reported to be sweeping Penha Longa for listening devices late Wednesday. A film crew
    from the UK's Channel 4 were being trailed by a team of plain clothes police and security men
    after they attempted to film inside the hotel on Tuesday afternoon. Veteran Washington reporter
    and Bilderberg specialist Jim Tucker, a regular and unwelcome visitor at Bilderberg conferences
    since 1980, is also under constant surveillance. He told The News that he was spotted near
    the hotel by the Bilderberg security team. Since the Bilderberg meeting was first revealed by
    The News on May 1, scooping the world's media, the internet site of The News has been
    experiencing unprecedented international interest. In the last four days the site has accumulated
    over 368,000 hits, being linked to some of the largest media sites on the net. Only on Wednesday
    did the Portuguese media start to comment on the upcoming 'summit' in Sintra, despite the fact
    that the Portuguese press agency LUSA had alerted them to the story in The News four weeks
    ago. Much of the information now being published is relying heavily on The News reporting of this
    event over its last five issues. Guests confirmed by the Bilderberg Meeting to The News on Thursday
    morning included in alphabetical order; Pinto Balsemão, Conrad Black, Kenneth Clarke, João
    Cravinho, Paulo Fresco, Marçal Grilo, Richard Holbrooke, Henry Kissinger, Peter Mandelson,
    Vasco de Mello, Murteira Nabo, Her Majesty Queen of the Netherlands, David Oddsson,
    David Rockefeller, Richardo Salgado, President Jorge Sampaio, Rudolf Scharping.

     

    The Bilderberg wall of silence suffered substantial damage this week. The Edinburgh based
    Sunday Herald, WorldNetDaily and the famous Drudge Report all commented on the rendezvous
    of world leaders currently taking place in Sintra.

    The Scottish Sunday Herald published the story (May 30) and the internationally-respected
    WorldNetDaily led with the agenda linking directly to The News site. The Portuguese national
    radio station, RFM, reported on Wednesday the expected presence of Bill Clinton who, they
    reported, would be unaccounted for over this weekend.

    The Sunday Herald said in its article: "Every year the international media competes to be the
    first to reveal the location and agenda for the conference". The Herald continued by saying:
    "The winner of the Bilderberg scoop this year was a Portuguese newspaper, The News, which
    boasts that it is the country's largest-circulation English language newspaper. It has published
    the location and the detailed agenda of the conference".

    Público refers to a "Lusa News Agency alert" quoting a newspaper, 'The News'.

    The BBC Worldwide Monitoring Service this week printed a text of a report by the Yugoslav
    News Agency, Tanjug, which said the plan to bring about a Balkan Vietnam was drawn up
    secretly back in 1996 and reactivated at a meeting of the Bilderberg Group held in Scotland
    last year, citing the May 27 edition of the Yugoslav newspaper "Vojska".

    Vojska said that a thorough investigation conducted by independent US journalists had
    disclosed that the group members included David Rockefeller, Giovanni Agnelli, Helmut Kohl,
    Lord Peter Carrington, Queen Sophia of Spain, Valery Giscard D'Estaing, Baron Rothschild,
    Margaret Thatcher, Lord Robert Owen and Henry Kissinger. The newspaper claimed that US
    journalists had disclosed that the Bilderberg Group had in fact made plans for the "third
    Balkan war" in this century.

    Under the plan, drawn up at a session chaired by Lord Carrington, the first move was to be to
    try and arrest "war criminals from among the Serbs" with extensive help of the Hague tribunal,
    set up for that very purpose. The move was to provoke a stormy reaction by Serbs, which was
    to be used as a pretext for a military intervention.

    However, developments prevented the idea from being translated into practice, which required
    a reserve variant - the fanning of interethnic conflicts in Kosovo-Metohija.

    All indications are that a group is now going back to the original variant, the outcome of which
    is the indicting of Yugoslav officials by the Hague tribunal, said the newspaper.

    According to the same scenario, Greece, Albania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Russia and Turkey
    are to be drawn into the war, in addition to Yugoslavia, with Nato adding fuel to the fire.

    In yet another 'extraordinary coincidence' one of the items on the Bilderberg agenda for this
    weekend (as revealed to The News by Canadian based researcher John Whitley) is the formation
    of a Western European Army which is high on the agenda of the meeting of European leaders in
    Cologne on Thursday.

    Stop press: As we went to press on Thursday we received the official press release from the
    Bilderberg Meeting. It said:
    "The 47th Bilderberg Meeting will be held in Sintra Portugal June 3
    to 6 to discuss the Atlantic Relationship in a Time of Change. Among others the conference
    will discuss NATO, Genetics, Emerging Markets, The New Economy, European Politics,
    US Politics, International Financial Architecture, Russia. Approximately 120 participants
    from North America and Europe will attend the discussions. The meeting is private in order
    to encourage frank and open discussion.

    "What is unique about the about Bilderberg as a forum is the broad cross-section of leading
    citizens that are assembled for nearly three days of informal and off-the-record discussion
    about topics of current concern especially in the fields of foreign affairs and the international
    economy; the strong feeling among participants that in view of the differing attitudes and
    experiences of the Western nations, there remains a clear need to further develop an
    understanding in which these concerns can be accommodated; the privacy of the meetings,
    which has no purpose other than to allow participants to speak their minds open and freely.
    In short, Bilderberg is a small, flexible, informal, off-the-record international forum in which
    different viewpoints can be expressed and mutual understanding enhanced.

    "Bilderberg's only activity is its annual Conference. At the meetings, no resolutions are proposed,
    no votes taken, and no policy statements issued. Since 1954, forty-six conferences have been
    held. The names of the participants as well as the agenda are made available to the press.
    Participants are chosen for their experience, knowledge, and their standing; all participants
    attend Bilderberg in a private and not an official capacity.

    "There usually are about 120 participants of whom about two-thirds come from Europe and the
    balance from North America. About one-third are from government and politics, and two-thirds
    from finance, industry, labor, education, communications.

    "Participants have agreed not to give interviews to the press during the meeting. In contacts with
    the news media after the conference it is an established rule that no attribution should be made
    to individual participants of what was discussed during the meeting.

    People-covered blankets form a patchwork quilt around the U.S. Capitol. As

    the sun sets, music of the National Symphony Orchestra rises to

    Tschaikowsky’s "1812 Overture." Cannons wait across the reflecting pool,

    poised for the signal. Then, at the precise moment, they blast in unison

    with the symphony---and fireworks explode over the Washington Monument.

    Independence Day--the Fourth of July--binds us as a nation. In rural

    villages and massive cities, in countrysides and on urban streets,

    Americans gather for picnics and fireworks. They celebrate the freedoms,

    the history, the privileges America affords.

    Globalism is Gaining

    A growing shadow looms over American nationalism--a creeping movement

    toward global citizenship. Instead of a world made of independent nations,

    globalism requires an international system to govern and unite

    "nation-states." World federalism would unite all countries under a common

    government--a greatly empowered United Nations. And we would no longer

    look to Washington, D.C., as the center of our government.

    "World federal government is not only possible, it is inevitable." says

    Sir Peter Ustinov, President of the World Federalist Movement, "and when it

    comes, it will appeal to the patriotism of men who love their national

    heritages so deeply that they wish to preserve them in safety for the

    common good". (emphasis added.

    This agenda is neither new nor covert. The World Federalist Association

    has been working toward this goal for nearly 50 years. Some have suspected

    a conspiracy to bring the world under one power--global governance. Now

    efforts seem to be accelerating for the year 2000.

    Mother Earth

    The motivation for global governance is the lust for power illustrated in

    the age-old lie, "Man is his own god." This 90s-style religion elevates

    Earth to an object of worship (FV, April 1997),. Man controls his destiny.

    Man is the savior-not God.

    Preserving the planet becomes the act of worship, and Christians the enemy.

    Western culture, say U. N. environmentalists, has desecrated Earth. Vice

    President Al Gore has supported this theory for years. In 1990 he

    introduced legislation that established the annual "Earth Day."

    Influence Peddler

    Another leading advocate of Mother Earth is Canadian Maurice Strong,

    possibly the chief influence peddler within globalism. His U.N.-related

    resume includes former Deputy Secretary- General and Secretary-General of

    the 1992 U.N. Conference on Environment and Development. Some point to him

    as an upcoming U. N. Secretary-General.

    Strong has referred to Our Common Future, resulting from the U.N.’s World

    Commission on Environment and Development, as "an extension of the Bible."

    The book deals with how "humankind must preserve Earth.

    Strong artfully chastises "those who call ourselves Christian" for starting

    the Industrial Revolution--the source of Earth’s problems. "The oneness

    of the Earth has been shattered within these nations by artificial

    boundaries dividing the open land into segments of private property, and

    destroying Mother Earth and indigenous peoples," he said at a "theology of

    the Earth" event in New York City.

     

    "God has placed the fate of the Earth in our hands . . . We can secure our

    own salvation of life itself on Earth," he said. How? Through global

    governance by the U.N. And wherever the U.N. is, the sovereignty of the

    United States -- and our identity as American citizens -- is jeopardized.

     

    U. N. Charter

    Little did U.N. founders dream of its future power.

    In 1918, President Woodrow Wilson designed the Fourteen Points, a document

    calling for the League of Nations. This world body was to secure

    international peace and, thereby, domestic security. Congress, however,

    refused to ratify the League of Nations--seeing it as a threat to our

    national sovereignty.

    But later, demoralized by two world wars within 50 years, the U.S. changed

    its position. In 1944, our national leaders met with Russia, China and

    Great Britain, forming the United Nations to promote and maintain world

    peace. These superpowers ratified the U.N. Charter the next year.

    That Charter gives the U.N. Security Council power to:

    · Recommend judges for election to the International Court.

    · Maintain international peace and security.

    · Investigate and arbitrate disputes.

    · Use economic and military actions against aggressors.

    · Recommend new members.

    · Recommend appointment of the Secretary General.

    >From this rather limited beginning, the U.N. now equates peace with

    globalization--and ultimately, a world government.

     

    Global Governance

    The Commission for Global Governance (CGG) gives us a birdseye view of the

    process. Founded in 1992, the Commission has the full endorsement of

    former U.N. Secretary-General Dr. Boutros Boutros-Ghali. Although not an

    official U.N. organization, its 28 members all have U.N. related resumes.

    The Commission published its 357 page report Our Global Neighborhood, in

    1995. Its recommendations include:

    · Governmental agreement to changes "in the international system"

    · Strong leadership "that reaches beyond country, race, religion, culture,

    language, lifestyle" "Global governance) must embrace . . . a sense of

    responsibility to the global neighborhood..." The report further states.

    "The impulse to possess turf is a powerful one for all species; yet it is

    one that people must overcome."

    The U.N. is to play a pivotal role. "It is our firm conclusion that the

    United Nations must continue to play a central role in global governance,"

    it says. Moreover, the CGG proposes expanding the U.N.’s current power.

     

    U. N. Expansion

    Through Taxes:

    The CGG recommends fees on international activities, including foreign

    currency transactions. The greatest income, however, would come from taxes

    on all fossil fuels. Economist James Tobin states in National Review that

    "a 0.5 percent tax on foreign-exchange transactions would raise $1.5

    trillion annually---nearly equivalent to the U. S. federal budget."

    No More Veto:

    Another power grab comes from the CGG’s recommendation that the U. N.

    Security County, the organization’s most power entity eliminate the veto

    power held by the five permanent members--the U. S., France, the United

    Kingdom, the Russian Federation and China.

     

    Currently, nine Council members must agree before a measure can pass,

    including all five permanent members. This veto power offers needed

    protection to the U.S.

    However, CGG recommends elimination of the veto in a two-stage process,

    because "the Commission knew," reported the National Review, "that the

    current permanent members of the Security Council, including the U.S.,

    would not easily surrender their vetoes." First, five new permanent

    members would join the Security Council--without veto privilege. Then

    three countries would be added as non-permanent members.

    The second stage poses the real threat to our sovereignty. Although the

    U.S. would not have ratified the U.N. Charter in 1945 without the veto

    provision, the CGG wants it phased out.

    According to Our Global Neighborhood, the original five permanent members

    would retain the veto to use "only in extreme cases." By the year 2005,

    "today’s permanent members will have become accustomed to participation in

    global governance without the veto."

    These plans are progressing. The State Department has already agreed to add

    five new members to the Security Council, but has not commended on the veto.

    "Without veto power, the U.S. would be subject to the decisions of other

    countries--even if we violently disagree with them," says Laurel MacLeod,

    CWA’s Director of :Legislation and Public Policy.

     

    Where’s the Voter?

    Fueling global government and U.N. expansion is the mindset that our

    world’s survival demands a new system. Though globalists might not admit

    it, they see the Founding Fathers’ vision as archaic.

    "Where are the voters?" asks Laurel MacLeod. "The CGG’s plan ignores

    Congress, state legislatures and the system of checks and balances so

    carefully crafted for our Republic. Instead, the globalist vision gives

    power to non-elected elites who would control out government from behind

    the scenes."

    We already see this trend progressing throughout our culture.

    Expanding Through Land Use--Using the model of the U.N. regulations, our

    own executive agencies have created biosphere reserves--and subverted

    private property rights in the process. For example, in 1976 the U.N.

    designated Yellowstone National Park as a biosphere reserve--set aside for

    conservation and scientific study.

    Yet the U.N. regulations that control buffer zones (areas around the core

    biosphere reserve) only allow limited human activities and dwelling.

    Individuals who own property within buffer zones may not keep animals, grow

    crops, or develop land. Core and buffer zones are places where "the

    collective needs of non-human species must take precedence over the needs

    and desires of humans," says environmentalist Dr. Reed F. Noss.

    "It is important to protect and preserve environment," says Laurel MacLeod.

    "But laws must recognize the democratic process and not be imposed upon

    people outside their Constitutional rights. The United States’ national

    sovereignty--is becoming subservient to U.N. wishes."

    Expanding Through the Military--The United States Constitution empowers

    Congress to declare war and the President to act as Commander-in-Chief.

    However, our military has increasingly come under U.N. control.

     

    In 1990, President George Bush obtained U.N. authority to send U. S.

    troops to Iraq--an unprecedented action. Some 54 members of Congress

    unsuccessfully attempted to force the President to obtain congressional

    authority.

    In 1992 President Bush again approached the U.N.--to send American soldiers

    to Somalia. For the first time in our history, American troops served

    under direct command of a United Nations foreign commander.

    But not all American soldiers agree with this growing change of command.

    In 1996, Specialist Michael New, an Army medic, underwent court martial for

    refusing to serve under foreign command as an international peacekeeper

    (FV, May 1996). "I swore allegiance to my country, not the U.N.," Spc. New

    declared. (He received a dishonorable discharge.)

    Now, the move toward a U.N. standing army indicates further control. The

    Washington Times reports that Choi Young-Jin, the U.N. assistance

    secretary- general for peacekeeping operations, hopes to establish "a

    standing army system" I would consist of 100,000 standby troops from 70

    countries. He called the standby system "an interim measure" resulting

    from opposition to a U.N. standing army from the U.S. and other "core

    countries."

    Sen. Rod Grans (R-MN), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations

    subcommittee on international operations said that Congress should be very

    concerned. "They keep saying that there will be no U.N. standing army, but

    this is proof that there is a lot of planning going on to make this a

    reality," Sen. Grans told the Washington Times.

    Expanding Through the Family Unit--Even the God-ordained institution of

    family is experiencing U.N. intervention. In 1989, the U.N. General

    Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Our ambassador

    to the U.N. signed the Convention in 1995. It went to the Senate--where it

    remains today in committee.

    President Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton strongly endorse this treaty.

    Still the President has said he will attach "reservations" to it--to allay

    citizen fears and state the Administration’s differences--before sending it

    to the full Senate.

    If the Senate passes the Convention in committee, it will go to the full

    Senate for a final ratification vote of two-thirds, instead of a simple

    majority. If ratified, this intrusive treaty would--according to modern

    Supreme Court interpretation of the Constitution--supersede all state and

    federal laws.

    The U.N. treaty would charge Congress with seeing "the best interests of

    the child" (article 3), thus usurping the family’s role.

    American traditionally believe that minor children need parental protection

    But the treaty purports that children have the rights to make their own

    decisions--in all areas. It would conceivable give them even freer access

    to sexual activity, contraception and abortion, pornography, and cultic and

    occult "religions."

    "God designed the family to nurture and guide children gradually increasing

    their autonomy until they become independent," says Dr. Beverly LaHaye, CWA

    Founder and Chairman. "This plan isn’t oppressive, but loving."

     

    Allan Carlson of The Center on the Family in America, a conservative think

    tank, agrees. "(The U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child) undermines

    the one institution in which children are least likely to be abused least

    likely to be poor, least likely to be promiscuous, most likely to be

    healthy, and most likely to be well educated: the traditional two-parent

    family."

     

    I Pledge Allegiance

    The U.S. Constitution laid out our system of government by the people. A

    balance of power, checks and balances, a bill of rights--and national

    sovereignty--are its hallmarks. Independence Day, the American flag, the

    pledge of allegiance--are all its symbols. Our country began as a

    magnificent experiment, and still exists as a paragon of freedom for the

    entire world. We must not let the United Nations rob us of our right to

    celebrate as American---not global citizens.

     

     

    COMMUNIST GOALS

    (From The Congressional Record, Jan. 10, 1963)

    1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

    2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

    5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

    7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

    8. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

    9. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.

    10. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

    11. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

    12. Gain control of all student newspapers.

    13. Use student riots to ferment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

    14. Infiltrate the Press.

    15. Gain control of key positions in radio, T.V., and motion pictures.

    16. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate" all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.

    17. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

    18. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

    19. Break down culture standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and T.V.

    20. Present homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity, as "normal, natural, healthy."

    21. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

    22. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

    23. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

    24. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

    25. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the cultural education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

    26. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrist can understand or treat.

    27. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

    28. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. (Hen. A.S. Herlong, Jr. of Florida in H.R., Congressional Record-Appendix, Jan. 10, 1963, pp. a34-35)

    Look through the above list again and count the number of goals which have been accomplished in this nation since 1963.

    -------------------------------------

    COMMUNIST GOALS (from The Communist Manifesto written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in 1848.)

    "The theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single phrase: Abolition of private property." (page 82) "In bourgeois society, therefore, the past dominates the present; in communist society, the present dominates the past. In bourgeois society capital is independent and has individuality, while the living person is dependent and has no individuality.

    "And the abolition of this state of things is called by the bourgeoisie, abolition of individuality and freedom! And rightly so. The abolition of bourgeois individuality, bourgeois independence, and bourgeois freedom is undoubtedly aimed at." (page 84)

    "You reproach us with intending to do away with your property. Precisely so; that is just what we intend." (page 85)

    ". . . the middle-class owner of property. This person must, indeed, be swept out of the way, and made impossible." (pages 85-86)

    "Abolition of the family!" (page 87) "The Communists are further reproached with desiring to abolish countries and nationality." (page 90)

    "Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality."(page 92)

    "Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things " (page 116)

    Goals of Communism (page 94)

    1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.

    2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

    3. Abolition of all right of inheritance.

    4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

    5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.

    6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.

    7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of wastelands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

    8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

    9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.

    10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc., etc.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 13107

    This EO requires all federal state and local governments to comply immediately with a ll UN Treaties, whether or
    not co nfirmed by the US Senate as required by the Constitution. One treaty, the UN Treaty on Genocide says that anyone persuading someone to change his or her religion  is a hate crime pnishable by law.  This EO will be used by
    the new Office of Religious Persecution Monitoring to arrest and imprison Christian missionaries and witnesses anywhere in the world who preach Jesus only.  Thus we now have Christian persecution from our White House.

    WILLIAM J. CLINTON
    THE WHITE HOUSE, December 10, 1998.


    David Hornbeck edited one manifesto for this agenda, Human Capital.  In it he cited the need to "create a sense of crisis" and then to use the courts to achieve the goal.  Ira Magaziner wrote an interesting letter gloating of their win in the election and what it meant toward achieving their goals of social engineering (Marc Tucker 17 page Letter to Hillary Clinton advising on Education and Training http://www.eurekanet.com/~cpr/tucklett.html) .  Sadly, education did need fixing, only now those responsible for the failure have been further empowered to more radically extend the "fix".  (David Hornbeck wrote the education restructuring plan for the state of Alabama and Kentucky.  Marc Tucker "fixed" Oregon.)

    This list makes poor Richard Mellon Scaife, the American Spectator and the Rutherford Institute look mighty puny. But they are not our strength and our salvation.   Fortunately those "Right Wing Radicals" who dare to object know the One Who is really in control and they look to Jesus Christ as Lord of all.  Many good people have been deceived by the Newspeak of those promoting this agenda.  I had often wondered how the Anti-Christ could come out of the Church as Revelations predicts.   The skillful manipulation of language has made many believe they are supporting something the facts do not bear out.  We must remember "there is nothing new under the sun."  This may be the final act of the Battle of the Ages.  Do not despair or be dismayed, our God will never leave us or forsake us.  Let us be constantly in prayer for those whom He is using on the frontlines of this "War" as James Carville calls it.  Let us pray that the shackles will fall from the eyes of those deceived.  Like the Virgins in the parable, keep the oil in the lamps and be prepared.

    And they accuse us of "having an agenda"?

    Let me suggest that you read Malachi Martin's Windswept House.
    From Wanderer Interview:

    "Since the publication of Malachi Martin's WINDSWEPT HOUSE (Doubleday) early this summer, everyone who has read it is asking the same question: Is it all true?

    The brilliantly conceived and elegantly written novel presents Vatican City as a nest of intrigue, where the Holy Father is cautiously temporizing as disloyal cardinals subvert his Papacy and scheme with government and business elites in London and Brussels to advance the New World Order.

    Believing that the Church must be a key player in the New World Order - primarily for financial reasons - and that Catholic doctrine on key issues must be "moderated," "transformed," or simply dropped in order for the Church to be accepted as a player in the new power structure, the Pope's unfaithful cardinals plot to isolate John Paul II."
