"Our Search for Global Order"

After innumerable conversations with family, friends, and strangers along Gene's and my half-century long pathways, and hundreds upon hundreds of hours of research, I now conclude the following:

Philosophy- man's vain attempt to define his own existence without God.

Psychology - man's vain attempt to remedy the difficulty of existence without God.

Novus Ordo Seclorum-- new order of the ages [1]  --
man's vain attempt at solving global problems without God.

Regarding the above, I offer the following.  Take what you need and leave the rest....


(Report to UN on the Conclusions and Recommendations re:)
7-8 January, 1992,
Petersberg, Germany

"The world is at a crucial turning point. Behind us: almost half a century of stifling cold war and management of superpower confrontation. Before us: the historic chance to move towards a new era of peace, co-operation and dialogue. A few of the contours of a new and more complex world are already evident: the end of the East-West conflict, the demise of the Soviet Union as a sovereign state and strategic superpower, the emergence of new and competing political units, and the proliferation of acute global problems which jeopardize the very survival of the planet.  But although the old order is gone; a coherently structured new order offering a predictable framework for international intercourse is not yet in place. Conflict management and international co-operation are vital in this period of transition. Moreover, the new era is inconceivable without a redefinition of the interrelationship between national and global interests, without new institutions, mechanisms and instruments. These will certainly not be created without effective political leadership. "
 --German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, chair of meeting

"There is nothing more difficult to plan,
more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage,
than a creation of a new order of things."
--Niccolo Machiavelli, "The Prince" (c.1513)

"Further global progress is now possible only through a quest for universal
            consensus in the movement towards a new world order."
--Mikhail Gorbachev, before the UN, December 7, 1988

In September 1990, just before leaving for Helsinki, Finland -- en route to discuss the Persian Gulf crisis at his summit meeting with Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev -- then President, George Herbert Walker Bush, expressed the hope that "the foundation for the new world order would be laid in Helsinki," and that it would be established under the United Nations. At the news conference with Gorbachev following their historic meeting, Septemeber 8-9, President Bush declared optimistically, "If the nations of the world, acting together, continue as they have been we will set in place the cornerstone of an international order more peaceful than any that we have known."
--President G.H.W. Bush, Sr.,
For entire speech go to:

"We want to do what we can to facilitate what I might optimistically call a new world order. But that new world order should have a conciliatory component to it. It should say to those countries that are on the other side at this juncture -- and there aren't many of them -- 'look, you're part of this new world order. You're part of this. You can play an important part in seeing that the world can live at peace in the Middle East and elsewhere.' So, there are some that oppose us. There are some of the more radical elements that will always oppose the West and the United States. But there are countries involved there that may have leaned -- tilted, to use an old diplomatic expression, towards Saddam Hussein and towards Iraq that will clearly be in the forefront of this new world order."

--President G.H.W. Bush, Sr., January 18, 1991

"What is at stake is more than one small country, it is a big idea -- a new world order,
where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind:
peace and security, freedom, and the rule of law. "
--President G.H.W. Bush, Sr.,
his State of the Union Address before Congress (January 29, 1991)

"Now, we can see a new world coming into view.
A world in which there is the very real prospect of a new world order.
In the words of Winston Churchill, a 'world order' in which
'the principles of justice and fair play ... protect the weak against the strong ...'
A world where the United Nations, freed from cold war stalemate,
is poised to fulfill the historic vision of its founders.
A world in which freedom and respect for human rights find a home among all nations.
The Gulf war put this new world to its first test,
and, my fellow Americans,
we passed that test.
--President G.H.W. Bush, Sr.**

"A system of world government is mandatory. The proud nations someday will
see the light and...yield up their precious sovereignty."
--Walter Cronkite, from "A Reporter's Life"(©1996)

"The receptivity of the great masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, and their power of forgetting is enormous."
--Adolph Hitler, "Mein Kampf"

"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications, whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries...We are on the verge of a global transformation.
All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the new world order."
--David Rockefeller; founder of the Trilateral Commission, 345 East 46th Street, New York, NY 10017.
(excerpts; address before the Commission, June 1991)

"It is the sacred principles enshrined in the United Nations charter
to which the American people will henceforth pledge their allegiance."
--President G.H.W. Bush, Sr.,
(addressing the General Assembly of the U.N., February 1, 1992)

Note:  In response to the Sept. 11th attacks, Bethlehem, Vermont Earth Charter organizers carried the long-awaited Ark of Hope across their fair state to UN headquarters in New York City. The Ark of Hope, containing the UN's own "ten commandments;" aka., the "United Nations' Earth Charter", was on display at the United Nations from January 24 - February 19, 2002, and is currently destined to receive permanent residence at the UN's own Meditation Room (designed and dedicated by the late Dag Hammerskjold) on the first floor of the NYC, UN building, June 2002.

Sept. 29, 2001, Tampa, Florida, from his speech titled:
"The Earth Charter: Building a Global Culture of Peace"

     "Effective international and cross-cultural collaboration requires a new global ethic. We urgently need a shared vision of basic values that will provide a basis for world wide partnership and an ethical foundation for the emerging world community. The mission of the Earth Charter initiative is to help establish such a foundation. The Earth Charter endeavors to make clear that in the final analysis the problems the world faces are ethical ones. If we are to create a secure world and better future for all, we must revise our idea of the good life and our understanding of right conduct, and we must do this together as global citizens....
One way of understanding the Earth Charter is to think of it as a declaration of global interdependence and universal responsibility. When this nation was founded, we issued a Declaration of Independence. Over 200 years later, we confront a very different world, and we urgently need a national and international declaration of interdependence. World wide interdependence is to a large degree the result of American technology, industrialization, and trade. Our nation has been the leader in the process of globalization, and yet, we have not fully understood the ethical implications and practical consequences of living in the world we ourselves are actively creating...
In my home state of Vermont, the Earth Charter is being transported across the state from town to town in a beautiful, handcrafted Ark of Hope by people walking in a spirit of peace. In addition to the Earth Charter, the Ark of Hope contains the prayers and poems of many Vermonters. The global challenges before us are great, but if we unite behind the kind of vision affirmed in the Earth Charter, there are grounds for hope."
--Steven C. Rockefeller,
Professor Emeritus of Religion--Middlebury College, Middlebury, Vermont; and architect of "The Earth Charter"

     ".... according to one of its promoters [and Green Cross founder], Mikhail Gorbachev, [the Earth Charter] will replace the Ten Commandments and is the base of the 'new ethics for a new world', and will be presented/displayed to the international community for its definitive acceptance in the World-wide Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD), in Johannesburg, South Africa, the next September (2002)."
--The Global News, The NTT International Researcher's Newsletter,
Number 462, November 18, 2001

"The roots of the Earth Charter can be found in the writings of Gorbachev’s group, Green Cross International. 'World population must stabilize,' says Green Cross literature. Green Cross goes on to say that 'natural resources are finite' and that each person in the world must be assigned a set amount of resources he can use. This amount of  personal resources would be monitored by a world body. Green Cross also calls for the elimination of national sovereignty on environmental questions. It also calls for an international body for the Sustainability of Human Life on Earth that would have the 'power and independence to facilitate agreement between all societal actors to support the protection of the Biosphere as the Common Interest of Humanity.' According to [Steven] Rockefeller, already hundreds of cities around the world have agreed to the tenets of the charter."

"Every age must produce its own theology."
-- Philip Schaff,
(1819-1893; professor/author "History of the Christian Church")

"Many religions today expect the coming of an Avatar or Saviour...
The Christ belongs to all mankind; he can be understood as the same great Identity in all the world religions...
The world teacher is that great being whom the Christian calls the Christ.
He is known also in the orient as the Bodisattva, and as the Lord Maitreya, and is the one looked for by the divine Mohammedan, under the name of Iman Madhi. He it is who has presided over the destinies since about 600 BC and he it is who has come out among men before, and who is again...
He is the great Lord of Love and of compassion, just as his predecessor, the Buddha, was Lord of Wisdom.
Through him flows the energy of the second aspect,
reaching him directly from the heart centre of the Planetary Logos via the heart of Sanat Kumara...
He is the World Teacher, the Master of the Masters, and the Instructor of the Angels,
and to him is committed the guidance of the spiritual destinies of men,
and the development of the realisation within each human being that he is a child of God and a son of the Most High."
--Alice Bailey, (1880-1949),
theosophist & co-founder Lucifer Publishing (1921)/ Lucis Trust International (1922-to present);
(Lucis Trust is current member of United Nations Economic and Social Council, and publicists for UN)
Lucis is Greek for Lucifer. (a full list of UN ngo's) (the spiritual work of the UN)


"Christ is the same force as Lucifer... Lucifer prepares man for the experience of Christhood....
(He is) the great initiator. The true light of Lucifer cannot be seen through sorrow, through darkness, through reflection. The true light of this great being can only be recognized when one's own eyes can see with the light of the Christ, the light of the inner sun. Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into the New Age, which is the age of man's wholeness, each of us is brought to that point which I term the Luciferic Intiation, the particular doorway through which the individual must pass if he is to come fully into the presence of his light and his wholeness. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age.  As we move into a new age, which is the age of man's true wholeness and Unity, each one of us gets to the point in our lives where we must receive a Luciferic initiation.  Through this experience we enter the phase of light and wholeness in our lives."

"The Occult Science of the Ancient Magi was concealed under the shadows of the Ancient Mysteries; it was imperfectly revealed or rather disfigured by the Gnostics; it is guessed at under the obscurities that cover the pretended crimes of the Templars; and it is found enveloped in enigmas that seem impenetrable in the Rites of Highest Masonry. was this same remembrance, preserved or perhaps profaned in the celebrated Order of the Templars, that became for all the secret associations, of the Rose-Croix, of the Illuminati, and of the Hermetic Freemasons, the reason of their strange rites, of their signs more or less conventional, and above all, of their mutual devotedness and of their power."

(*To this day many freemsons outwardly attempt to minimize Pike's significance to the histories of either aforementioned organization.  My own late father aspired to 32rd degree southern freemasonry--my mother, a member of the Order of Eastern Star; those who deny are incorrect, or uninformed.)

"When the mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the mystery of his craft.  The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands."

"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.  And no wonder, for Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.  Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as ministers of righteousness; whose end will be according to their works."
-- 2 Corinthians 11:13-15

"I have spread out My hands all day
to a rebellious people,
who walk in the way which is not good,
following their own thoughts,
A people who continually provoke Me to My face,
offering sacrifices in gardens
and burning incense on bricks;
who sit among graves, and spend
the night in secret places;
who eat swine's flesh,
and the broth of unclean meat is in their pots.
Who say, 'keep to yourself,
do not come near me, for I am holier than you!'
These are smoke in My nostrils,
A fire that burns all day.
Behold, it is written before Me:
'I will not keep silent, but I will repay;
I will repay even into their bosom,
Both their own iniquities and
the iniquities of their fathers
together,' says the Lord.'"
--God to Isaiah, chapter 65:2-6

" 'I AM the Lord and there is no other;
Besides Me there is no God.
I will gird you though you have not known Me;
that men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun
that there is no one besides Me.
I AM the Lord, and there is no other,
the One forming light
and creating darkness,
causing well-being and creating calamity;
I AM the Lord who does all these...
Gather yourselves and come;
draw together, you fugitives of the nations;
they who have no knowledge,
who carry about their wooden idol,
and pray to a god who cannot save.
'Declare and set forth your case;
Indeed, let them consult together.
Who has announced this from old?
Who has long since declared it?
Is it not I, the Lord?
And there is no other God besides Me,
A righteous God, and a Savior;
There is none except Me.
Turn to Me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth;
For I AM God and there is no other.' "
--God to Isaiah, 45:20-22

"I AM the way the truth and the life;
no one comes to the Father, but through Me."
--Jesus Christ, to all would hear
(book of John, chapter 14:6)

"So if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ,' or, 'There He is!' do not believe it.  For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. Behold,  I have told you in advance."
--Jesus Christ (Matthew 24:23-25)

"For creation was made subject to vanity*,
not of its own will,
but because of Him who subjected it,
in hope that the creation itself will also be set free
from the bondage of slavery to corruption,
into the freedom of the glory of the children of God."
-- Romans 8:20
(*some Bibles translate "vanity" as:
"futility, frustration, vain things, vain pursuits, emptiness, inutility, and/or depravity.")
-- from Greek word MATAIOTES--

All translations are correct.

"But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose unbelieving minds the god of this age has blinded, that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God."
--the apostle Paul (to the Christian church at Corinth)
(2 Corinthians 4:3-4)

"And we know that God works all things together for good to those who love God,
who are the called according to His purpose."
--to the Romans 8:28
