Old-thinker news | Sept. 26, 2007

In a 1997 paper presented to the Research Department of the Air Command and Staff College, written by Maj. Bart R. Kessler, light is shown upon yet another plan on part of globalist think tanks to propagandize the world into accepting their vision for the future.
In “Bush’s New World Order: The Meaning Behind The Words,” Kessler shows that in the 1970’s, the World Order Models Project, financed by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and the Rockefeller foundation, proposed “strategies of transition” into a new global era. Saul H. Mendlovitz, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, directed the project. Richard A. Falk, also a member of the CFR, contributed academic work.
The goals of the WOMP, according to Mendlovitz, were to,
“…go beyond the nation-state system…to use a much broader range of potential actors, including world institutions, transnational actors, international organization, functional activities, regional arrangements, the nation-state, subnational movements, local communities, and individuals.”
Kessler points out that,
“While the WOMP values seem mundane enough, their conclusions were not. With the main concern of the WOMP being war… their central new world order visions in Falk’s A Study of Future Worlds was the ‘dismantling [of] the national security apparatus in the major states of the world.'”
The long term goals of WOMP (2011-2013), as Mendlovitz states, is to establish,
“…a global tax scheme to establish and maintain a basic needs regime for global society… a complete and general disarmament with alternative security system in place…”
Ultimately, as Richard Falk’s contribution to the project “A Study of Future Worlds” states,
“Symbolic world leaders such as the Secretary General of the United Nations or the Pope might espouse [the WOMP agenda]… as a program for the future… These kinds of external developments… would initiate a world order dialectic within American politics that would begin to break down decades of adherence to [the Westphalian system] and its infrastructure of values, perceptions and institutions.”
Long after the proposals were set forth in this project, both Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI have called for a “new world order” as a solution to problems facing the globe. Many other world leaders have followed with calls for a new international order.
As CNN reported in January of 2004, Pope John Paul II called for a ‘new world order’ to solve war, poverty, and other problems facing the world,
“This year, John Paul directed his thoughts to continuing conflicts around the globe. But he stressed that to bring about peace, there needs to be a new respect for international law and the creation of a “new international order” based on the goals of the United Nations.”
The current Pope, Benedict XVI has also called for a new world order in his 2006 Christmas address.
“Pope Benedict, in his first Christmas address, on Sunday urged humanity to unite against terrorism, poverty and environmental blight and called for a “new world order” to correct economic imbalances.”
