September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

1  General Category / Emergent church / Mark Driscoll & the Mars Hill church on: February 25, 2012, 02:32:23 pm
I live in Seattle & a few of my friends go to neo-calvinist Mars Hill Church, so I thought I'd do a little research as to WHY Driscoll is so controversial... according to my MHC friends, it is because of his "radical" stance against homosexuality & for biblical gender roles, which is criticized by Liberals & feminists for being "too conservative"... yet his assertive discussion of sex within a marriage tends to upset the conservative christians for being "too liberal"... I did my own research and the more I look into this guy, the more I think about the "leaven of the Pharisees"... where I agree with 95% of what he says, but the other 5% is poison...! 

This goes well beyond his yoking up with Freemasons like Robert Schuller or promoting  CFR stooges like Rick Warren... this plunges deep into dangerous territory like his unbiblical form of spiritual warfare by talking to the demons to get information from them, or his mind-control techniques to keep his followers in line (i.e. "I see things" or "I'll break their noses!")... Driscoll is also promoting a form of Catholic Mysticism, through "Contemplative Prayer".  I believe that the "emergent church movement" is the main way that the Jesuits will bring the various New Evengelical and Protestant groups back into the Catholic Church fold by promoting these New Age forms of "white" Witchcraft to the new generation of cultural christians...

Driscoll claims that Jesus shows him things in his mind like a TV ("I see things") in his video series on "spiritual warfare", of seeing in his mind's eye cases of adultery & domestic violence & child abuse of some of his congregates, and when the victim doesn't remember the incident of incest,  then supposedly "jesus" tells Mark to tell them to confront their abuser in order to verify his "gift" of "spiritual discernment" ... When the abuser asked "how did you know, you were too young?", they said "Mark said so"...  end of story...
Honestly, does that sound like something that would actually happen...?

Granted there's no way to verify these outrageous claims, but sure enough, folks in that church must wonder if "jesus" isn't showing Mark their secret sins as well, & then they will be confronted about it or have to sign a Church Discipline Contract or something...!  Even if it were true, it is invasive and abusive to accuse someone of past victimizations like that, just because you are in a position of authority and have a "gift"... These are marks of a cult leader... megalomania, fixation on sex, joking threats of violence against "elders" that don't toe the line, and convincing the flock that he can "read their mail" of their unconfessed sins or victimizations...

Mark Driscoll was raised Catholic, then was part of the Emergent Church Movement, before settling into his "Culturally Liberal & Theologically Conservative" mode... It is a "cult of personality" phenomena... They spend a lot of energy letting everyone know that they are "All About Jesus"... yet at the end of the day, it seems more about Mark Driscoll and the "Mars Hill" brand than about Christ... When MHC first got off the ground, Mark preached that there would be accountability from the leadership to the congregation, yet in 2007, they restructured the power structure of MHC to make Mark & 4 "elders" to have "lifetime tenure", and they could not be held accountable anymore... two of the original elders voiced their concerns about this change, and they were quickly sacked and ex-communicated... Then Mark preached that he should "break the noses" of anyone who dared to challenge HIS authority...!   

Then there is the most recent storm that came out when one of the members confessed to his "Community Group" leader that he cheated on his fiance, and despite his voluntary confession of repentance, Andrew was accused by the leadership of not actually being repentant, and the ensuing control-freak tactics and extreme disciplinary measures remind me of what the Scientology Cult, Marxist re-education camps, and Secret Society Fraternities do to their own members... (i.e. have to write lists of ALL of their lifetime of sexual sins to be kept on file, exposure of their "dirty laundry" to the rest of their Community Group as retribution for non-compliance, and then "shunning" the transgressor by not allowing any of the church members to make any contact with them on their own time...!) 
Sounds like the Catholic Church during the Dark Ages..!

Here are three written testimonies of those who chose to leave MHC on their own accord...

The rest of this post is from the following website:

Though Mark Driscoll has denounced the Emergent Church Movement and stated that it is unbiblical (http://www.marshillchurch.org/audio/driscoll_sebts_092107.mp3), he still embraces "Contemplative prayer". See "Christian Post Says Mark Driscoll 'Ditches' Emergent but Evidence Proves Otherwise" (http://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com/blog/?p=2009).

This is huge right now with many prominent evangelicals (especially those in the emerging, purpose-driven and seeker-sensitive movements) like Pastor Rick Warren, who in his book "The Purpose-Driven Life" positively quotes no less than nine mystics including Gary Thomas (Sacred Pathways) (http://www.onewayofjesus.com/rick-warren-and-the-purpose-driven---c...) and even popular Pastor Tim Keller of Redeemer Presbyterian Church has been recommending Roman Catholic mysticism (http://apprising.org/2011/01/27/tim-keller-recommending-roman-catho...). His church's website has an article by Jan Johnson titled "Meditation: Not So Mysterious - Two ways to move Scripture off the page and into your life" (http://www.redeemer.com/connect/prayer/prayer_johnson_article.html) which promotes the book Spiritual Exercises by Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Jesuits (see http://www.thebereancall.org/node/1796 andhttp://www.onewayofjesus.com/attacks-on-protestant-christians--oath...). This same article on Redeemer Presbyterian's website also promotes the Catholic mystical practice of Lectio Divina.

Pastor Mark has a history of dishonesty.
In the Mars Hill Doctrine series, he used a fake quote to try to smear atheists.http://driscontinuity.tumblr.com/post/15231214839/cant-find-a-quote...
He can’t remember if God audibly spoke to him in Idaho or Washington:http://driscontinuity.tumblr.com/post/14297925997/washington-or-idaho
He tried to blame Ted Haggard’s wife for his actions, then later denied ever saying anything about the Haggards: http://driscontinuity.tumblr.com/post/16120606145/pastor-mark-lies-...

The History Of The House Of Rothschild   2000-2006
By Andrew Hitchcock
10-31-9

2000: George W. Bush is elected (so they tell me) President of the United States. Bush and his family claim to be descendants of the House of Plantagenet which is descended from the Royal House of Judah.
 
2001: On September 11th the attack on the World Trade Center is orchestrated by Israel with the complicity of Britain and America, under the orders of the Rothschilds as a pretext for removing the liberty of people worldwide in exchange for security, just as happened with the Reichstag fire in Germany where the citizens were lied to in order to give up liberty for security.
 
They also will use the attacks to gain control of the few nations in the world who don't allow Rothschild central banks and so less than one month after these attacks, US forces attack Afghanistan, one of only 7 nations in the world who don't have a Rothschild controlled central bank.
 
Less than a week before the 9-11 attack on 5 September, the so-called lead hijacker Mohamed Atta and several other hijackers made a still- unexplained visit onboard one of Pro Israeli lobbyist, Ashkenazi Jew, Jack Abramoff's casino boats.
 
No investigation is undertook as to what they were doing there. It is discovered that US drug agents' communications have been penetrated. Suspicion falls on two companies, AMDOCS and Comverse Infosys, both owned by Israelis. AMDOCS generates billing data for most US phone companies and is able to provide detailed logs of who is talking to whom.
 
Comverse Infosys builds the tapping equipment used by law enforcement to eavesdrop on all American telephone calls, but suspicion forms that Comverse Infosys, which gets half of its research and development budget from the Israeli government, has built a back door into the system that is being exploited by Israeli intelligence and that the information gleaned on US drug interdiction efforts is finding its way to drug smugglers.
 
The investigation by the FBI leads to the exposure of the largest foreign spy ring ever uncovered inside the United States, operated by Israel. Half of the suspected spies have been arrested when 9-11 happens.
 
On 9-11, 5 Israelis are arrested for dancing and cheering while the World Trade Towers collapse. Supposedly employed by Urban Moving Systems, the Israelis are caught with multiple passports and a lot of cash.
 
Two of them are later revealed to be Mossad. As witness reports track the activity of the Israelis, it emerges that they were seen at Liberty Park at the time of the first impact, suggesting a foreknowledge of what was to come. The Israelis are interrogated, and then eventually sent back to Israel.
 
The owner of the moving company used as a cover by the Mossad agents abandons his business and flees to Israel. The United States Government then classifies all of the evidence related to the Israeli agents and their connections to 9-11.
 
All of this is reported to the public via a four part story on Fox News by Carl Cameron. Pressure from Jewish groups, primarily AIPAC, forces Fox News to remove the story from their website. Two hours prior to the 9-11 attacks, Odigo, an Israeli company with offices just a few blocks from the World Trade Towers, receives an advance warning via the internet.
 
The manager of the New York Office provides the FBI with the IP address of the sender of the message, but the FBI does not follow this up. The FBI is investigating 5 Israeli moving companies as possible fronts for Israeli intelligence.
 
It is revealed that prior to the attack millions of dollars of put options on both American Airlines and United Airlines, were traded. The FBI have promised to followed the purchasers up, but have never revealed their findings. That is because this would lead directly to Israel, the state behind the 911 attacks.
 
Following the World Trade Center attack, anonymous letters containing anthrax are sent to various politicians and media executives. Like the 9-11 attack this is immediately blamed on Al-Qaeda , until it is discovered that the anthrax contained within those letters is a specific type of weaponized anthrax made by a United States military laboratory.
 
The FBI then discover that the main suspect for these anthrax letters is a Ashkenazi Jew, Dr. Philip Zack, who had been reprimanded several times by his employers due to offensive remarks he made about Arabs. Dr. Philip Zack, was caught on camera entering the storage area where he worked at Fort Detrick which is where the Anthrax was kept. At this point, both the FBI and the mainstream media stopped making any public comments on the case.
 
Jewish Defence League Chairman since 1985, Ashkenazi Jew, Irv Rubin is jailed for allegedly plotting to bomb a mosque and the offices of a Arab-American congressman. He dies shortly after slitting his throat in a suicide attempt, before he can be brought to trial.
 
One week prior to the WTC attack, the Zim Shipping Company moves out of its offices in the WTC, breaking its lease and costing the company $50,000. No reason has ever been given, but Zim Shipping Company is half owned by the State of Israel (The Rothschilds).
 
On October 3, Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, makes the following statement to Ashkenazi Jew, Shimon Peres, as reported on Kol Yisrael radio.
 
"Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that....I want to tell you something very clear, don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it." 2002: Webster's Third New International Dictionary (Unabridged), re- printed in 2002, provides a new definition of Anti Semitism which has not been updated since 1956. It reads, "Anti-Semitism: (1) hostility toward Jews as a religious or racial minority group, often accompanied by social, political or economic discrimination (2) opposition to Zionism (3) sympathy for the opponents of Israel." It was definition (2) and (3) that were added in the 2002 edition, just before the USA decide to invade Iraq under orders from the State of Rothschild, I mean Israel. Also this year, the Prime Minister of Israel, war criminal, Ariel Sharon, orders the massacre in the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank. Best get that definition updated to protect these criminals. The DEA issues a report that Israeli spies, posing as art students, have been trying to penetrate US Government offices. Police near the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station in southern Washington State stop a suspicious truck and detain two Israelis, one of whom is illegally in the United States. The two men were driving at high speed in a Ryder rental truck, which they claimed had been used to, "deliver furniture."
 
The next day, police discovered traces of TNT and RDX military-grade plastic explosives inside the passenger cabin and on the steering wheel of the vehicle. The FBI then announces that the tests that showed explosives were, "false positived," by cigarette smoke, a claim test experts say is ridiculous.
 
Based on an alibi provided by a woman, the case is closed and the Israelis are handed over to INS to be sent back to Israel. One week later, the woman who provided the alibi vanishes.
 
2003: The United States invade Iraq on 19 March, which this year is the holy, "Day of Purim," in the Jewish calendar. This, "Day of Purim," is a day the Jews celebrate their victory over Ancient Babylon, now based within the borders of Iraq, how interesting.
 
What is also significant is that the previous U.S. led invasion of Iraq ended on the Day of Purim ten years earlier with the slaughter of 150,000 fleeing Iraqis under the current President's father, George Herbert Walker Bush. Purim is also the time when the Jews are encouraged to get bloody revenge against their perceived enemies.
 
Ancient Babylon, I mean Iraq, is now one of six nations left in the world who don't have a Rothschild controlled central bank. This war is mainly about stealing Iraq's water supply for Israel and is being fought with the blood of the American military which the State of Rothschild, I mean Israel control.
 
Israel has always struggled for water, it had to steal the Golan Heights from Syria which provided Israel with one third of its fresh water 36 years before, yet still in Israel water extraction has surpassed replacement by 2.5 billion metres in the last 25 years.
 
This means the water is far more precious to them than the oil reserves which are the second largest reserves of oil on the planet.
 
Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamed states in a speech,
 
"Jews rule the world by proxy. They get others to fight and die for them." The Police Chief of Cloudcroft stops a truck speeding through a school zone. The drivers turn out to be Israelis with expired passports. Claiming to be movers, the truck contains junk furniture and several boxes. The Israelis are handed over to immigration. The contents of the boxers are not revealed to the public.
 
Israel deploys assassination squads into other countries, including the United States. The US Government does not protest.
 
2004: Two years into an investigation of AIPAC's (The American Israel Public Affairs Committee  the largest political lobbying group in the USA with over 65,000 members whose only purpose is to use the USA for the purposes of Israel) possible role as a spy front for Israel, Ashkenazi Jew, Larry Franklin, a mid-level Pentagon Analyst is observed by the FBI giving classified information to two officials of AIPAC suspected of being Israeli spies.
 
AIPAC hires lawyer Nathan Lewin to handle their legal defense, the same lawyer who defended suspected Israeli spy Stephen Bryen in 1978. Larry Franklin worked in the Pentagon Office of Special Plans, run by Richard Perle, at the time Perle (who was caught giving classified information to Israel back in 1970) was insisting that Iraq was crawling with weapons of mass destruction requiring the United States to invade and conquer Iraq.
 
There were no WMDs, of course, and Perle has dumped the blame for the, "bad intelligence," on George Tenet. But what is known is that the Pentagon Office of Special Plans was coordinating with a similar group in Israel, in Ariel Sharon's office.
 
With two suspected Israeli spies (at least) inside the office from which the lies that launched the war in Iraq originated, it appears that the people of the United States are the victims of a deadly hoax, a hoax that started a war using the blood and money of American citizens for the purposes of Israeli oppression.
 
The leaking of the investigation of AIPAC to the media on August 28th, 2004 gave advance warning to other spies working with Franklin. The damage to the FBI's investigation was completed when United States Attorney General John Ashcroft ordered the FBI to stop all arrests in the case.
 
Like the Stephen Bryen case and the hunt for, "Mega," this latest spy scandal seems destined by officials who have their own secret allegiances to protect, barring a massive public outcry.
 
Police near the Nuclear Fuel Services plant in Tennessee stop a truck after a three mile chase, during which the driver throws a bottle containing a strange liquid from the cab. The drivers turn out to be Israelis using fake identifications. The FBI refuses to investigate and the Israelis are released.
 
Two Israelis try to enter Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base, home to eight Trident submarines. The truck tests positive for explosives.
 
The National Director of the ADL, Abraham H. Foxman, publishes a book entitled, "Never Again? The Threat Of The New Anti-Semitism," in which he states that the New Testament's "lie," that the ancient Pharisees were responsible for the death of Christ, has been responsible for anti-semitism throughout the millennia and thus the New Testament of the bible is, "hate speech," and should be censored or banned.
 
2005: On January 20, President Bush makes the following statement as part of his second inaugural address, "When our Founders declared a new order of the ages." This is not true. The founders did not declare a, "new order of the ages," President Roosevelt did when in 1933, he put it's latin translation, "Novus Ordo Seclorum," on the dollar bill.
 
On 7 July the London Underground Network is bombed. Israel's Finance Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu is in London on the morning of the attacks in order to attend an economic conference in a hotel over the underground station where one of the blasts occurred, but stayed in his hotel room instead after he had been informed by Israeli intelligence officials attacks were expected.
 
There are now only 5 nations on the world left without a Rothschild controlled central bank: Iran; North Korea; Sudan; Cuba; and Libya.
 
Physics Professor, Stephen E. Jones of Brigham Young University publishes a paper in which he proves the World Trade Center buildings could have only been brought down in the manner they were by explosives. He receives no coverage in the mainstream media for his scientific and provable claims.
 
2006: The Edmond De Rothschild Banque, a subsidiary of Europe's Edmond De Rothschild family bank group in France, becomes the first foreign family bank that has obtained approval of the China Banking Regulatory Commission and entered China's financial market.
 
The ADL ruthlessly leans on governments throughout the world to pass hate crimes legislation, as they are scared that the criminal cabal that is Israel and the Rothschilds is being exposed more and more on a daily basis, predominantly on the internet. Their job is to protect this criminal network and what better way to do it than by passing laws in which anyone who exposes a Jewish criminal becomes a criminal.
 
David Irving is sentenced to three years in jail in Austria, for denying the holocaust. It is important to note that the only historical event you can be arrested for questioning is the (Jewish) holocaust.

The History Of The House Of Rothschild   1973-1999
By Andrew Hitchcock
10-31-9

"The Rothschild empire helped finance Adolf Hitler." - None Dare Call It Conspiracy, Gary Allen
 
George J. Laurer an employee of the Rothschilds controlled IBM, invents the UPC (Universal Product Code) barcode which will eventually be placed upon every item traded worldwide and bear the number, 666. The Book of Revelation, Chapter 13, Verse 17 through 18, states the following in relation to this number, "And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."
 
The whole Satanic aims of the Rothschilds are now in full view of the world, everything bought or sold carries the mark of the beast, 666. N. M. Rothschild & Sons British Newfoundland Corporation, Churchill Falls project in Newfoundland, Canada, is completed.
 
N. M. Rothschild & Sons also create a new asset management part of the company which traded worldwide. This eventually became, Rothschild Private Management Limited.
 
Edmond de Rothschild, a great-grandson of Jacob (James) Mayer Rothschild, bought the cru bourgeois estate of Château Clarke in Bordeaux.
 
1976: Ashkenazi Jew, Harold Rosenthal, aide to Ashkenazi Jew, Senator Jacob Javits, states,
 
"Most Jews do not like to admit it, but our god is Lucifer." 1978: Ashkenazi Jew, Stephen Bryen, then a Senate Foreign Relations Committee staffer, is overheard in a Washington D.C. hotel offering confidential documents to top Israeli military officials. Bryen obtains a lawyer, Nathan Lewin, and the case heads for the grand jury, but is mysteriously dropped. Bryen later goes to work for Richard Perle.
 
1979: The Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty in 1979 was underwritten by United States aid which pledged $3 billion annually to Israel from the United States taxpayer (not even a drop in the ocean when you consider the amount they make off the Federal Reserve).
 
Shin Bet (the Israeli internal security agency) tries to penetrate the US Consulate General in Jerusalem through a "Honey Trap", using a clerical employee who was having an affair with a Jerusalem girl.
 
Baron and Baroness Phillipi de Rothschild in a joint venture with Robert Mondavi, begin the construction of a pyramid in Napa Valley, California, where the leader/founder of the Church Of Satan, Ashkenazi Jew, Anton LaVey, was based. This is known as Opus 1 (which means, the first work), and the front for this temple is that it is a winery.
 
1980: The global phenomenon of privatisation starts. The Rothschilds are behind this from the very beginning in order to seize control of all publicly owned assets worldwide.
 
1981: Banque Rothschild is nationalised by the French government. The new bank is called, Compagnie Européenne de Banque. The Rothschilds subsequently set up a successor to this French bank, Rothschild & Cie Banque (RCB), which goes on to become a leading French investment house.
 
1982: From September 16 to 18, future Prime Minister of Israel and then Defence Minister, Ashkenazi Jew, Ariel Sharon, orchestrates Israel's invasion of Lebanon, which provided ariel lighting in order to facilitate the killing of between 1000 and 2000 men, women and children in the Sabra and Shatila massacres.
 
1985: Eustace Mullins publishes, "Who Owns The TV Networks," in which he reveals the Rothschilds have control of all three major U.S. Networks, which are: NBC; CBS; and ABC.
 
The New York Times reports the FBI is aware of at least a dozen incidents in which American officials transferred classified information to the Israelis, quoting (former Assistant Director of the F.B.I.) Raymond Wannal. The Justice Department does not prosecute.
 
Richard Smyth, the owner of MILCO, is indicted on charges of smuggling nuclear timing devices to Israel.
 
N. M. Rothschild & Sons advise the British government on the privatisation of British Gas. They subsequently advise the British government on virtually all of their other privatisations of state owned assets including: British Steel; British Coal; all the British regional electricity boards; and all the British regional water boards.
 
A British MP heavily involved in these privatisations is future Chancellor of the Exchequer, Norman Lamont, a former Rothschild banker.
 
1986: Mordechai Vanunu a technician at Dimona, Israel's nuclear installation, from 1976 to 1985, discovers that the plant was secretly producing nuclear weapons.
 
His conscience made him speak out and in 1986 he provided the London Sunday Times with the facts and photos they used to tell the world about Israel's nuclear weapons programme.
 
His evidence showed that Israel had stockpiled up to 200 nuclear warheads, with no debate or authorisation from it own citizens. On 30th September 1986, Vanunu was lured from London to Rome. There he was kidnapped, drugged and shipped to Israel.
 
After a secret trial he was sentenced to 18 years for, "treason," and, "espionage," (something Israel are very familiar with) though he had received no payment and had communicated with no foreign power.
 
He goes on to be held in complete isolation for 11 years, only allowed occasional visits from his family, lawyer and a priest, conducted through a metal screen. Although he completes his sentence, the Israeli government continues to hold him against his will.
 
1987: Edmond de Rothschild creates the World Conservation Bank which is designed to transfer debts from third world countries to this bank and in return those countries would give land to this bank. This is designed so the Rothschilds can gain control of the third world which represents 30% of the land surface of the Earth.
 
On April 24 the Wall Street Journal reveals the, "Role of Israel in Iran-Contra Scandal Won't be Explored in Detail by Panels."
 
1988: The ADL initiate a nationwide competition for law students to draft anti-hate legislation for minority groups. That competition is won by a man named, Joseph Ribakoff, whose thesis proposes that not only must hate motivated violence be banned, but also any words which stimulate: supiscion; friction; hate; and possible violence, these must also be criminalised.
 
This ADL prize-winning paper suggests that not only should state- agencies monitor and restrict free speech in general, but they should also censor all films that criticize identifiable groups. Furthermore, even if the person making the statement can justify it, for example Christians criticizing homosexuality because the bible expressly forbids it, Ribakoff asserts that the truth is to be no defence in court.
 
The only proof a court will need in order to secure a conviction of hate speech is that something has been said, and a minority group or member of such group has felt emotionally damaged as a result of such criticism. Therefore, under these proposals which the ADL will have forced into law all over the world less than 15 years later, Jesus Christ would have been arrested as a hate criminal.
 
This law is designed to protect the Rothschild conspiracy from being revealed in that if you criticize the Rothschilds criminal cabal, you will be targeted as anti-semitic, and thus risk imprisonment.
 
Philippe de Rothschild dies.
 
1989: Many of the satellite states in Eastern Europe, through the influence of Glasnost, become more open in their demands of freedom from Communist governance in their Republics.
 
Many revolutions happen in 1989, most of them involving the overthrow of their respective Communist governments and the replacement of them with Republics.
 
Thus, the hold the Communists had over Eastern Europe (the Iron Curtain) becomes very weak. Eventually, as a result of Perestroika and Glasnost, Communism collapses, not only in the Soviet Union but also in Eastern Europe.
 
In Russia, Boris Yeltsin (whose wife is the daughter of Joseph Stalin's marriage to Rosa Kaganovich) and the Republican government takes steps to end the power of the Communist party by suspending and banning the party and seizing all their property.
 
This symbolised the fall of Communism in Russia, and resulted in the start of a mass exodus of 700,000 Jews from the former Soviet Union to Israel.
 
In the Israeli Journal, Hotam (24 November 1989), there is a report of a speech that then Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister, Ashkenazi Jew, Binyamin Netanyahu, gave to students at Bar Ilan University in which he states,
 
"Israel should have exploited the repression of the demonstrations in China, when world attention focused on that country, to carry out mass expulsions among the Arabs of the territories." The London and Paris Rothschilds announce the launch of a new subsidiary, Rothschild GmbH, in Frankfurt, Germany. 1991: Following the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990, on January 16 of this year the United States and Britain began an aerial bombing campaign of targets within Iraq. On 24 February the ground campaign commenced which was to last 100 hours until on February 28 when a horrendous war crime occurred.
 
This crime was the slaughter of 150,000 Iraqi troops with fuel air bombs. These Iraqis were fleeing on a crowded highway from Kuwait to Basra. President George Herbert Walker Bush ordered United States military aircraft and ground units to kill these surrendering troops, they were then bulldozed into mass unmarked graves in the desert, some still alive.
 
President Bush then ordered a cessation of hostilities. What was the significance of this slaughter and President Bush declaring the war over on this day? Well it was the day the, "Day of Purim," fell on this year. This the day the Jews celebrate their victory over Ancient Babylon, now based within the borders of Iraq and a day when the Jews are encouraged to get bloody revenge against their perceived enemies.
 
At the Bilderberg Conference on June 6 to 9 of this year, in Baden- Baden, Germany, David Rockefeller (a Rothschild) made the following statement,
 
"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 40 years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world, if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The super-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto- determination practised in past centuries."
 
1992: In March, former Federal Reserve Board Chairman, Paul A. Volker became Chairman of the European banking firm, J. Rothschild, Wolfensohn and Co. Stephen Bryen, caught offering confidential documents to Israel in 1978, is serving on board of the pro-Israeli Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs while continuing as a paid consultant, with security clearance, on exports of sensitive US technology.
 
"The Samson Option," by Seymour M. Hersh reports,
 
"Illicitly obtained intelligence was flying so voluminously from LAKAM (a secret Israeli intelligence unit, a Hebrew acronym for Scientific Liaison Bureau) into Israeli intelligence that a special code name, JUMBO, was added to the security markings already on the documents. There were strict orders, Ari Ben-Menashe recalled, "Anything marked JUMBO was not supposed to be discussed with your American counterparts." The Wall Street Journal reports that Israeli agents apparently tried to steal Recon Optical Inc's top-secret airborne spy-camera system. On September 16th Britain's pound collapses when currency speculators led by Rothschild agent, Ashkenazi Jew, George Soros, borrow pounds and sell them for Deutsche Marks, in the expectation of being able to repay the loan in devalued currency and to pocket the difference.
 
This results in the British Chancellor of the Exchequer, Norman Lamont, announcing a rise in interest rates of 5% in one day and as a result drives Britain into a recession which lasts many years as large numbers of businesses fail and the housing market crashes.
 
This is right on cue for the Rothschilds, after they had privatised Britain's state owned assets during the 1980's, driven the share price up, and then collapsed the markets so they could buy them up for pennies on the pound, a carbon copy of what Nathan Mayer Rothschild did to the British economy 180 years before, in 1812.
 
It cannot be overstated that the Chancellor of the Exchequer at that time, Norman Lamont, prior to becoming a MP, was a Merchant Banker with N. M. Rothschild and Sons, who he joined after reading Economics at Cambridge.
 
1993: Norman Lamont leaves the British government to return to N. M. Rothschild and Sons as a director, after his mission to collapse the British economy to profit the Rothschilds is accomplished.
 
Former Congressman, Paul Findley publishes his seminal book, Deliberate Deceptions: Facing the Facts About the U.S. Israeli Relationship.
 
In this book he lists the 65 United Nations Member Resolutions against Israel from the period 1955 to 1992, and the 30 United States vetoes on Israel's behalf which if not made would have seen Israel have 95 resolutions against them at this point.
 
No matter, even with Israel's puppet the United States helping them terrorise others, the 65 Resolutions passed against Israel are more than all the Resolutions passed against all other countries combined.
 
Not that Israel care too much about the views of the United Nations when you consider that less than two weeks after Israel's attack on the USS Liberty (an attack designed to sink the Liberty and blame it on Egypt prompting the USA into a war with Egypt on behalf of Israeli Lies, remember the Mossad motto, "By Way Of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War"), the Israeli Foreign Minister, Aba Eban, stated of the United Nations,
 
"If the General Assembly were to vote by 121 votes to 1 in favor of, "Israel," returning to the armistice lines (pre June 1967 borders), "Israel," would refuse to comply with the decision," New York Times  19 June 1967. The ADL is caught operating a massive spying operation on critics of Israel, Arab-Americans, the San Francisco Labor Council, ILWU Local 10, Oakland Educational Association, NAACP, Irish Northern Aid, International Indian Treaty Council, the Asian Law Caucus and the San Francisco Police. Data collected was sent to Israel and in some cases to South Africa. Pressure from Jewish organizations forces the city to drop the criminal case, but the ADL settles a civil lawsuit for an undisclosed sum of cash.
 
1995: Former atomic energy scientist, Dr Kitty Little claims the Rothschilds now control 80% of the world's uranium supplies giving them a monopoly over nuclear power.
 
The Defense Investigative Service circulates a memo warning US military contractors that,
 
"Israel aggressively collects (US) military and industrial technology." The report stated that Israel obtains information using, "ethnic targeting, financial aggrandizement, and identification and exploitation of individual frailties," of US citizens. 1996: A General Accounting Office report, "Defense Industrial Security: Weaknesses in US Security Arrangements With Foreign-Owned Defense Contractors," found that according to intelligence sources, "Country A," (identified by intelligence sources as Israel, Washington Times, 22 February 1996), "conducts the most aggressive espionage operation against the United States of any US ally." A pdf file of the report is here: www.gao.gov/archive/1996/ns96064.pdf An unformated text version is here: http://fas.org/man/gao/gao9664.htm
 
 
The Jerusalem Post (30 August 1996) quoted the report, ""Classified military information and sensitive military technologies are high-priority targets for the intelligence agencies of this country." The report described, "An espionage operation run by the intelligence organization responsible for collecting scientific and technologic information for (Israel) paid a US government employee to obtain US classified military intelligence documents." The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (Shawn L. Twing, April 1996) noted that this was,
 
"a reference to the 1985 arrest of Jonathan Pollard, a civilian US naval intelligence analyst who provided Israel's LAKAM espionage agency an estimated 800,000 pages of classified US intelligence information." www.washington-report.org/backissues/0496/9604014.htm
 
The GAO report also noted that, "Several citizens of (Israel) were caught in the United States stealing sensitive technology used in manufacturing artillery gun tubes."
 
An Office of Naval Intelligence document, "Worldwide Challenges to Naval Strike Warfare" reported that,
 
"US technology has been acquired (by China) through Israel in the form of the Lavi fighter and possibly SAM (surface-to-air) missile technology." Jane's Defense Weekly (28 February 1996) noted that, "until now, the intelligence community has not openly confirmed the transfer of US technology (via Israel) to China." The report noted that this, "represents a dramatic step forward for Chinese military aviation." (Flight International, 13 March 1996). Amschel Rothschild, 41, is strangled with the heavy cord of his own towel robe in his hotel room in Paris. French Prime Minister orders the French Police to close their investigation, and, Rupert Murdoch, born of a Jewish mother and so a Jew by Ashkenazi standards, instructs his editors and news managers around the world to report it as a heart attack, if they need to report it at all.
 
On 12 May United Nations Ambassador and Ashkenazi Jew, Madeleine Albright, when appearing on 60 Minutes, was asked the following by correspondent Lesley Stahl, in reference to the years of United States led economic sanctions against Iraq,
 
"We have heard that half a million children have died. I mean, that is more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?" To which Ambassador Albright replied, "I think that is a very hard choice, but the price, we think, the price is worth it." Her comments cause no public outcry. In fact, the holocaust of half a million Iraqi children is positively admired by the United States government when you consider less than 8 months later, President Clinton appointed Albright as secretary of state. Whilst appearing before the Senate Committee, who were considering her appointment, Albright is literally chomping at the bit for the blood of more Iraqi children and she states, "We will insist on maintaining tough UN sanctions against Iraq unless and until that regime complies with relevant Security Council resolutions." 1997: An Army mechanical engineer, Ashkenazi Jew, David A. Tenenbaum, "inadvertently," gives classified military information on missile systems and armored vehicles to Israeli officials (New York Times, 20 February 1997). The Washington Post reports US intelligence has intercepted a conversation in which two Israeli officials had discussed the possibility of getting a confidential letter that then-Secretary of State Warren Christopher had written to Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
 
One of the Israelis, identified only as, "Dov," had commented that they may get the letter from, "Mega," the code name for Israel's top agent inside the United States.
 
US ambassador to Israel, Martin Indyk, complains privately to the Israeli government about heavy-handed surveillance by Israeli intelligence agents.
 
Israeli agents place a tap on Ashkenazi Jew and daughter of a Rabbi, Monica Lewinsky's, phone at the Watergate and record phone sex sessions between her and President Bill Clinton. The Ken Starr report confirms that Clinton warned Lewinsky their conversations were being taped and ended the affair. Interestingly, at the same time, the FBI's hunt for, "Mega," is called off.
 
On 29 October Edmond de Rothschild dies in Geneva. Interestingly on the exact same day Anton Szandor LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan also dies, who in his book, "Satan Speaks," he states in relation to The Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion,
 
"The first time I read the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, my instinctive reaction was, So what's wrong with THAT? Isn't that the way any master plan should work? Doesn't the public deserve - nay, demand - such despotism?" Kofi Annan becomes Secretary General to the United Nations. He is married to Nane Lagergren, a Rothschild, who he wed in 1984. 1998: The European Central Bank is set up in Frankfurt, the city from which the Rothschilds originate.

The History Of The House Of Rothschild   1945-1973
By Andrew Hitchcock
10-31-9

1945: The end of the Second World War. It is reported that I.G. Farben plants were specifically not targeted in the bombing raids on Germany. Interestingly at the end of the war, they were found to have only sustained 15% damage.
 
The tribunals held at the end of the Second World War, to investigate Nazi War Crimes, censored any materials recording Western assistance to Hitler.
 
The Rothschilds take a giant step towards their goal of world domination when the second, "League of Nations," called the, "United Nations," was approved this year.
 
1946: On July 22 the future Prime Minister of Israel, Ashkenazi Jew, David Ben-Gurion, orders another future Prime Minister of Israel, Ashkenazi Jew, Menachem Begin, to carry out a terrorist attack on the King David Hotel in Palestine, to try and drive out the British. As a result of this 91 people were killed, most of them civilians: 28 British, 41 Arabs, 17 Jews, and 5 others. Around 45 people are injured.
 
Menachem Begin went on to proudly proclaimed himself as, "the father of modern terrorism." Just to put the gravity of the attack on the King David Hotel into perspective, it was at the time the biggest death toll as a result of single terrorist action ever and was only surpassed over forty years later by the Bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie.
 
1947: The British who prior to World War 2 declared that there would be no more immigration of Jews to Palestine in order to protect the Palestinians from their acts of terror against both them and British soldiers, transfer control of Palestine to the United Nations. The United Nations resolve to have Palestine partitioned into two states, one zionist and one arab, with Jerusalem to remain as an international zone to be enjoyed by all religious faiths.
 
This transfer was scheduled to take place on May 15, 1948. The United Nations had no right to give Arab property to anyone, as indeed even thought the Jews owned 6% of Palestine at that time, resolution 181 granted the Jews 57% of the land leaving the Arabs who at that time had 94% with only 43%.
 
Information collected by the ADL in its spy operations on US citizens is used by the House Select Committee on Unamerican Activities. Subcommittee Chair Clare Hoffman dismisses the ADL's reports on suspected communists as "hearsay."
 
1948: In the Spring of this year, the Rothschilds bribe President Harry S. Truman (33rd President of the United States 1945  1953) to recognise Israel (Rothschild owned Zionist not Jewish territory) as a sovereign state with $2,000,000 which they give to him on his campaign train.
 
They then declare Israel to be a sovereign Jewish state in Palestine and within half an hour President Truman declared the United States to be the first foreign nation to recognise it.
 
The Flag of Israel is unveiled. Despite tremendous opposition the emblem on the flag is a blue coloured version of the Rothschild, "Red Hexagram or Sign."
 
This angers many Jews who realise this Hexagram was used in the ancient mystery religions as the symbol of, "Moloch," (described as a demon of unwilling sacrifice and is also interestingly the name of the stone owl the elite worship at Bohemian Grove), and, "Astaroth," (described as the Lord Treasurer of Hell).
 
The Hexagram was also used to represent Saturn, which has been identified as the esoteric name for, "Satan." This indicates that anyone killed in the name of Israel is actually a sacrifice to Satan. These dissenting Jews believe the, "Menorah," the oldest Jewish symbol should be used and pointed out that the Hexagram is not even a Jewish symbol, but of course as the Rothschild Zionists use it that is what ends up on the Rothschild, I mean Zionist, I mean Israeli flag.
 
In the early hours of April 19, 132 Jewish terrorists from the Irgun gang, led by future Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, and the Stern gang, led by future Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, brutally massacre 200 men, women and children as they are sleeping peacefully in the Arab village of Deir Yassin.
 
Following the United Nations transfer of Palestine to an independent Jewish state and an independent Arab state on May 15, the Israelis launched a military assault on the Arabs with blaring loudspeakers on their trucks informing the Arabs that if they did not flee immediately, they would be slaughtered.
 
800,000 Arabs with the recent memory of the Deir Yassin massacre at the forefront of their minds, fled in panic. They asked for help from nighbouring Arab states, but those states did not get involved as they were no match for the Israelis whose up to date military hardware had been supplied by the Jewish Stalinist regime in Russia. Following this assault, the Jews now controlled 78% of the former Palestine as oppose to the 57% that had been given to them illegally by the United Nations.
 
The Palestinians, many of them Christians, were never paid compensation for their homes, property and businesses stolen from them during this illegal Jewish assault, and these people ended up in slum refugee cities of tents. Futhermore at least half of the Palestinians in their hurry to flee, left their birth certificates behind. The State of Israel then passed a law that only those who could prove citizenship were allowed to return to Israel, thus meaning these 400,000 Palestinians could not return and lost all their property they had left there.
 
Ashkenazi Jew, David Ben-Gurion, one of the father founders of Israel and its first Prime Minister, candidly describes Zionist aims in his diary (21 May 1948) as follows,
 
"The Achilles heel of the Arab coalition is the Lebanon. Muslim supremacy in this country is artificial and can easily be overthrown. A Christian State ought to be set up there, with its southern frontier on the river Litani. We would sign a treaty of alliance with this State. Thus when we have broken the strength of the Arab Legion and bombed Amman, we could wipe out Trans-Jordan, after that Syria would fall. And if Egypt still dared to make war on us, we would bomb Port Said, Alexandria and Cairo.
 
We should thus end the war and would have but paid to Egypt, Assyria and Chaldea on behalf of our ancestors." 1949: On October 1, Mao Tse Tsung declares the founding of the People's Republic Of China in Tiananmen Square, Beijing. He is funded by Rothschild created Communism in Russia and also the following Rothschild agents: Solomon Adler, a former United States Treasury official who was a Soviet Spy; Israel Epstein, the son of a Jewish Bolshevik imprisoned by the Tsar in Russia for trying to forment a revolution there; and Frank Coe, a leading official of the Rothschild owned IMF. 1950: Israel passes their law of return, guaranteeing every Jew worldwide the right to dwell in the state of Israel, however the Palestinians even though they had lived there for 1300 years, were denied that right.
 
John Davitt, former chief of the Justice Department's internal security section notes that the Israeli intelligence service is the second most active in the United States after the Soviets and of course both Israel and the Soviet Union are run by an Ashkenazi Jewish leadership.
 
1951: On 1 April the Israeli Secret Intelligence Agency the Mossad, which will go on to terrorize the world, is formed. The motto of the Mossad is probably the most disgusting secret service motto in the world, it is,
 
"By Way Of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War."
 
1953: N. M. Rothschild & Sons found the British Newfoundland Corporation Limited to develop 60,000 square miles of land in Newfoundland, Canada, which comprised a power station to harness the power of the Hamilton (later renamed Churchill) Falls. At the time this was the largest construction project ever to be undertaken by a private company.
 
1954: "The Lavon Affair." Israeli agents recruit Egyptian citizens of Jewish descent to bomb Western targets in Egypt, and plant evidence to frame Arabs, in an apparent attempt to upset American/Egyptian relations. Israeli defense minister, Ashkenazi Jew, Pinhas Lavon is eventually removed from office, though many think real responsibility lay with David Ben-Gurion.
 
A hidden microphone planted by the Israelis is discovered in the Office of the US Ambassador in Tel Aviv.
 
1955: Edmond de Rothschild founds Compagnie Financiere, Paris.
 
1956: Telephone taps are found connected to two telephones in the residence of the US military attaché in Tel Aviv.
 
1957: James de Rothschild dies and it is reported (by the Rothschild owned media) that he bequeaths a large sum of money to the state of Israel to pay for the construction of their parliament building, the Knesset. He states that the Knesset should be,
 
"a symbol, in the eyes of all men, of the permanence of the State of Israel." On page 219 of his book, "Tales of the British Aristocracy," L.G. Pine, the Editor of Burke's Peerage, states that the Jews, "have made themselves so closely connected with the British peerage that the two classes are unlikely to suffer loss which is not mutual. So closely linked are the Jews and the lords that a blow against the Jews in this country would not be possible without injuring the aristocracy also." Maurice de Rothschild dies in Paris. 1962: de Rothschild Frères establishes Imétal as an umbrella company for all their mineral mining interests.
 
Frederic Morton publishes his book, The Rothschilds, in which he states,
 
"Though they control scores of industrial, commercial, mining and tourist corporations, not one bears the name Rothschild. Being private partnerships, the family houses never need to, and never do, publish a single public balance sheet, or any other report of their financial condition." This attitude reveals the true aim of the Rothschilds, to eliminate all competition and create their own worldwide monopoly. 1963: On June 4th President John F. Kennedy (the 35th President of the United States 1961 1963) signs Executive Order 11110 which returned to the U.S. government the power to issue currency, without going through the Rosthchilds owned Federal Reserve.
 
Less than 6 months later on November 22nd , president Kennedy is assassinated by the Rothschilds for the same reason as they assassinated President Abraham Lincoln in 1865, he wanted to print American money for the American people, as oppose to for the benefit of a money grabbing war mongering foreign elite.
 
This Executive Order 11110, is rescinded by President Lyndon Baines Johnson (the 36th President of the United States 1963 to 1969) on Air Force One from Dallas to Washington, the same day as President Kennedy was assassinated.
 
Another, and probably the primary, reason for Kennedy's assassination is however, the fact that he made it quite clear to Israeli Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, that under no circumstances would he agree to Israel becoming a nuclear state. The Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz on February 5, 1999, in a review of, Avner Cohen's book, "Israel and the Bomb," states the following,
 
"The murder of American President John F. Kennedy brought to an abrupt end the massive pressure being applied by the U.S. administration on the government of Israel to discontinue the nuclear program...The book implied that, had Kennedy remained alive, it is doubtful whether Israel would today have a nuclear option." Edmond de Rothschild establishes La Compagnie Financière Edmond de Rothschild (LCF), in Switzerland as a venture capital house. This later develops into an investment bank and asset management company with many affiliates. He also marries his wife Nadine and they have a son, Benjamin de Rothschild. 1965: Israel illegally obtains enriched uranium from NUMEC (Nuclear Materials and Equipment Corporation).
 
1967: The treatment of the Palestinians by the Zionist Jews, finally ignites enough anger in the Arab world for Egypt, Jordan and Syria to mobilise on Israel's borders. All of these three countries are suddenly attacked by Israel and as a result the Sinai which included Gaza was stolen from Egypt, and the West Bank and the Jordan River stolen from Jordan.
 
As a result of this, on June 8, the Israelis launch an attack on the USS Liberty with Israeli aircraft and motor torpedo boats, in an effort to blame it on Egypt, to bring America into the war on their side, and of course follow to the letter, their Mossad motto,
 
"By Way Of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War."
 
As a result of their attack, 34 American servicemen were killed and 174 wounded. Israel lies as usual, claiming it mistook this warship that was flying a large United States flag, for an ancient out-of- service Egyptian horse carrier El Quseir, that was 180 feet shorter. They also claim the ship was in the war zone, when it was actually in international waters, far from any fighting. The Israeli's attack on this warship lasts for 75 minutes during which time they shoot up one of the United States flags, resulting in the sailors desperately raising another one.
 
In the aftermath of this attack, the American sailors who survived are warned by the United States military not to discuss the matter with anyone due to, "national security." This story gets no prominence in the Rothschild controlled mainstream media and as usual Israel is in no way even rebuked for their crimes by their subservient country of America.
 
The following day, June 9th, Israel illegally occupies the Golan Heights which it seizes from Syria. This area goes on to provide Israel with one third of its fresh water.
 
Israeli General Matityahu Peled, is quoted in Ha'aretz (19 March 1972) with the following statement,
 
"The thesis that the danger of genocide was hanging over us in June 1967 and that Israel was fighting for its physical existence is only bluff, which was born and developed after the war." Another sickening and deceptive statement but again at least he's consistent with the Mossad motto, "By Way Of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War." de Rothschild Frères is renamed Banque Rothschild. 1968: Noémie Halphen, wife of Maurice de Rothschild dies.
 
1970: While working for Senator Henry "Scoop" Jackson, Ashkenazi Jew, Richard Perle is caught by the FBI giving classified information to Israel. Nothing is done.
 
British Prime Minister Edward Heath makes Lord Victor Rothschild the head of his policy unit. Whilst he is in that role Britain enters the European Community.
 
1973: In his book, None Dare Call It Conspiracy, Gary Allen states,
 
"One major reason for the historical blackout on the role of the international bankers in political history is the Rothschilds were Jewish .The Jewish members of the conspiracy have used an organisation called The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) as an instrument to try and convince everyone that any mention of the Rothschilds and their allies is an attack on all Jews.
 
In this way they have stifled almost all honest scholarship on international bankers and made the subject taboo within universities.
 
Any individual or book exploring this subject is immediately attacked by hundreds of ADL communities all over the country. The ADL has never let the truth or logic interfere with its highly professional smear jobs
 
Actually, nobody has a right to be more angry at the Rothschild clique than their fellow Jews.

The History Of The House Of Rothschild   1900-1944
By Andrew Hitchcock
10-31-9

1901: The Jews from the colonies set up in Palestine by Edmond James de Rothschild, send a delegation to him which tell him,
 
"If you wish to save the Yishuv (The Jewish settlement) first take your hands from it, andfor once permit the colonists to have the possibility of correcting for themselves what needs correcting." Edmond James de Rothschild is very angry about this and states, "I created the Yishuv, I alone. Therefore no men, neither colonists nor organisations have the right to interfere in my plans." The Rothschild banking house in Frankfurt, Germany, M. A. von Rothschild und Söhne, closes as there is no male Rothschild heir to take it on. 1902: Philippe de Rothschild born.
 
1905: A group of Rothschild backed Zionist Jews led by Georgi Apollonovich Gapon attempt to overthrow the Tsar in Russia in a Communist Coup. They fail and are forced to flee Russia only to be given refuge in Germany.
 
The Jewish Encyclopaedia (Vol. 2, p.497) states,
 
"It is a somewhat curious sequel to the attempt to set up a Catholic competitor to the Rothschilds that at the present time the latter are the guardians of the papal treasure." 1906: The Rothschilds claim that due to growing instability in the region and increasing competition from Rockefeller (the Rockefeller family are Rothschild descendants through a female bloodline) owned Standard Oil, this is why they sell their Caspian and Black Sea Petroleum Company to Royal Dutch and Shell. This is another example of the Rothschilds trying to hide their true wealth. 1907: Rothschild, Jacob Schiff, the head of Kuhn, Loeb and Co., in a speech to the New York Chamber of Commerce, warns that,
 
"Unless we have a Central Bank with adequate control of credit resources, this country is going to undergo the most severe and far reaching money panic in its history." Suddenly America finds itself in the middle of another typical run of the mill Rothschild engineered financial crisis, which ruins as usual ruins the lives of millions of innocent people throughout America and makes billions for the Rothschilds. 1909: Jacob Schiff founds the National Advancement for the Association of the Coloured People (NAACP). This was done to incite black people into roiting, looting and other forms of disorder, in order to cause a rift between the black and white communities. Jewish historian, Howard Sachar, states the following in his book, "A History of the Jews in America,"
 
"In 1914, Professor Emeritus Joel Spingarn of Columbia University became chairman of the NAACP and recruited for its board such Jewish leaders as Jacob Schiff, Jacob Billikopf, and Rabbi Stephen Wise." Other Ashkenazi Jew co-founders included Julius Rosenthal, Lillian Wald and Rabbi Emil G. Hirsch. It was not until 1920 that the NAACP appointed its first black president, James Weldon Johnson. Maurice de Rothschild marries Ashkenazi Jew, Noémie Halphen.
 
1911: Werner Sombart, in his book, "The Jews and Modern Capitalism," stated that from 1820 on, it was the,
 
"Age of the Rothschild," and concluded that there was, "Only one power in Europe, and that is Rothschild." 1912: In the December issue of, "Truth," magazine, George R. Conroy states of banker Jacob Schiff, "Mr Schiff is head of the great private banking house of Kuhn, Loeb, and co, which represents the Rothschilds interests on this side of the Atlantic. He has been described as financial strategist and has been for years the financial minister of the great impersonal power known as Standard Oil.
 
He was hand in glove with the Harrimans, the Goulds, and the Rockefellers in all their railroad enterprises and has become the dominant power in the railroad and financial power of America." 1913: On March 4, Woodrow Wilson is elected the 28th President of the United States. Shortly after he is inaugurated, he is visited in the White House by Ashkenazi Jew, Samuel Untermyer, of law firm, Guggenheim, Untermyer, and Marshall, who tries to blackmail him for the sum of $40,000 in relation to an affair Wilson had whilst he was a professor at Princeton University, with a fellow professor's wife. President Wilson does not have the money, so Untermyer volunteers to pay the $40,000 out of his own pocket to the woman Wilson had had the affair with, on the condition that Wilson promise to appoint to the first vacancy on the United States Supreme Court a nominee to be recommended to President Wilson by Untermyer. Wilson agrees to this.
 
Jacob Schiff sets up the Anti Defamation League (ADL) in the United States. This organisation is formed to slander anyone who questions or challenges the Rothschild global conspiracy as, "anti-semitic."
 
Strangely enough, the same year that they do this they also set up their last and current central bank in America, the Federal Reserve. Congressman Charles Lindbergh stated following the passing of the Federal Reserve Act on December 23,
 
"The Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs this Bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be legalized.......The greatest crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill." It is important to note that the Federal Reserve is a private company, it is neither Federal nor does it have any Reserve. It is conservatively estimated that profits exceed $150 billion per year and the Federal Reserve has never once in its history published accounts. 1914: The start of World War I. In this war, the German Rothschilds loan money to the Germans, the British Rothschilds loan money to the British, and the French Rothschilds loan money to the French.
 
Futhermore, the Rothschilds have control of the three European news agencies, Wolff (est. 1849) in Germany, Reuters (est. 1851) in England, and Havas (est. 1835) in France.
 
The Rothschilds use Wolff to manipulate the German people into a fervour for war. From around this time, the Rothschilds are rarely reported in the media, because they own the media.
 
1916: On June 4, Ashkenazi Jew, Louis Dembitz Brandeis is appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States by President Wilson as per his agreed blackmail payment to Samuel Untermyer some three years earlier. Justice Brandeis is also the elected leader of the Executive Committee for Zionist Affairs, a position he has held since 1914.
 
The middle of World War II. Germany were winning the war as they were being financed by the Rothschilds to a greater extent than France, Italy and England, because Rothschilds, did not want to support the Tsar in Russia, and of course Russia was on the same side as France, Italy and England.
 
Then a significant event occurred. Germany, although they were winning the war and not one foreign soldier had set foot on their soil, offered armistice to Britain with no requirement of reparations. The Rothschilds were anxious to make sure this didn't happen as they were expecting to make far more money off this war, so they played another card they had up their sleeve.
 
Whilst the British were considering Germany's offer, Rothschild agent Louis Brandeis sends a Zionist delegation from America to Britain to promise to bring America into the war on the side of the British, provided the British agree to give the land of Palestine to the Rothschilds.
 
The Rothschilds wanted Palestine for the following reason. They had great business interests in the far east and desired their own state in that area along with their own military which they could use as an aggressor to any state that threatened those interests.
 
The British subsequently agree to the deal for Palestine and the Zionists in London contact their counterparts in America and inform them of this fact. Suddenly all the major newspapers in America that up to that point had been pro-German turned on Germany running propaganda pieces such as: German soldiers were killing Red Cross Nurses; German soldiers were cutting off babies hands, etc, in order to manipulate the American public against the Germans.
 
This same year, President Woodrow Wilson, ran a re-election campaign under the slogan, "Re-Elect The Man Who Will Keep Your Sons Out Of The War."
 
On December 12, Germany and her allies offer peace terms to end the war.
 
1917: As a result of Germany's offer of peace the Rothschild war machine goes into overdrive in America, spreading propaganda which leads to President Wilson under the instructions of American Zionist leader and Supreme Court Justice, Louis Dembitz Brandeis, reneging on his promise to the electorate and taking America into the first world war on April 6.
 
As per the Rothschild Zionist promise to the British, to take America into the war, they decide they want something in writing from the British to prove that they will uphold their side of the bargain. The British Foreign Secretary, Arthur James Balfour therefore drafts a letter which is commonly known as the, "Balfour Declaration," which is reprinted below.
 
Foreign Office November 2nd, 1917
 
Dear Lord Rothschild,
 
I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty's Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet.
 
His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.
 
I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
Arthur James Balfour
 
The Rothschilds order the execution by the Bolsheviks they control, of Tsar Nicholas II and his entire family in Russia, even though the Tsar had already abdicated on March 2. This is both to get control of the country and an act of revenge for Tsar Alexander I blocking their world government plan in 1815 at the Congress Of Vienna, and Tsar Alexander II siding with President Abraham Lincoln in 1864. It is extremely important for them to slaughter the entire family including women and children in order to make good on the promise to do so made by Nathan Mayer Rothschild in 1815. It is designed to show the world what happens if you ever attempt to cross the Rothschilds.
 
U.S. Congressman Oscar Callaway informs Congress that J. P. Morgan is a Rothschild front and has taken control of the American media industry. He states,
 
"In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press... ...They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers...An agreement was reached. The policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month, an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers."
 
1919: In January, Ashkenazi Jews, Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg, are killed as they attempt to lead another Rothschild funded Communist coup, this time in Berlin, Germany. The Versailles peace conference is held to decide reparations that the Germans need to pay to the victors following the end of the first world war. A delegation of 117 Zionists headed up by Ashkenazi Jew, Bernard Baruch, bring up the subject of the promise of Palestine for them. At this point the Germans realised why America had turned on them and under whose influence, the Rothschilds.
 
The Germans, naturally, felt they had been betrayed by the Zionists. This is because, at the time the Rothschilds made their deal with Britain for Palestine, in exchange for bringing America into the war, Germany was the most friendly country in the world towards the Jews, indeed the German Emancipation Edict of 1822 guaranteed Jews in Germany all civil rights enjoyed by Germans.
 
Also, Germany was the only country in Europe which did not place restrictions on Jews, even giving them refuge when they had to flee from Russia after their first attempted Communist coup failed there in 1905.
 
Nevertheless, the Rothschilds had held up their side of the bargain to spill the blood of millions of innocents and as a result, Palestine is confirmed as a Jewish homeland, and whilst its handover to the Rothschilds takes place it is to remain under the control of Britain as the Rothschilds control Britain. At that time less than one percent of the population of Palestine was Jewish. Interestingly, the host of the Versailles peace conference is its boss, Baron Edmond de Rothschild.
 
The Versailles peace conference is also used as an attempt by the Rothschilds to set up a world government under the pretext of ending all wars (which they create). This was called the, "League of Nations." Fortunately not enough countries accepted it and so it soon died.
 
On March 29th The Times of London reports on the Bolsheviks in Russia,
 
"One of the curious features of the Bolshevist movement is the high percentage of non Russian elements among its leaders. Of the twenty or thirty commissaries, or leaders, who provide the central machinery of the Bolshevist movement, not less than 75% were Jews." It is reported that the Rothschilds were angry with the Russians because they were not prepared to allow them to form a central bank within their nation. They therefore gathered groups of Jewish spies and sent them into Russia to drum up a revolution for the benefit of the common man, which was actually a takeover of Russia by a Rothschild controlled satanic elite. These Jewish spies were, in age old deceptive Ashkenazi tradition, given Russian names, for example Trotsky was a member of the first group and his original name was Bronstein. These groups were sent to areas throughout Russia to incite riots and rebellion.
 
The Jewish Post International Edition, week ending January 24th 1991, confirms Vladimir Lenin was Jewish. Lenin is also on record as having stated,
 
"The establishment of a central bank is 90% of communizing a nation." These Jewish, Rothschild funded Bolsheviks would go on in the course of history to slaughter 60 million Christians and Non-Jews in Soviet controlled territory. Indeed the author Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in his work, "Gulag Archipelago, Vol 2," affirms that Zionist Jews created and administered the organized Soviet concentration camp system in which these tens of millions of Christians and Non-Jews died. On page 79 of this book he even names the administrators of this the greatest killing machine in the history of the world. They are Aron Solts, Yakov Rappoport, Lazar Kogan, Matvei Berman, Genrikh Yagoda, and Naftaly Frenkel. All six are Zionist Jews. In 1970 Solzhenitsyn would be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for literature.
 
N. M. Rothschild & Sons' are given a permanent role to fix the world's daily gold price. This takes place in the City of London offices, daily at 1100 hours, in the same room until 2004.
 
1920: Winston Churchill (whose mother, Jenny (Jacobson) Jerome, was Jewish  meaning he is Jewish under Ashkenazi law as he was born of a Jewish mother) writes in an article in the Illustrated Sunday Herald, dated February 8th,
 
"From the days of Illuminati leader Weishaupt, to those of Karl Marx, to those of Trotsky, this worldwide conspiracy has been steadily growing. And now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America, have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and become the undisputed masters of that enormous empire."
 
1921: Under the orders of Jacob Schiff the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is founded by Ashkenazi Jews, Bernard Baruch and Colonel Edward Mandell House. Schiff gave his orders prior to his death in 1920, as he knew an organisation in America needed to be set up to select politicians to carry on the Rothschild conspiracy,and the formation of the CFR was actually agreed in a meeting on May 30, 1919 at the Hotel Majestic in Paris, France. The CFR membership at the start was approximately 1000 people in the United States. This membership included the heads of virtually every industrial empire in America, all the American based international bankers, and the heads of all their tax free foundations. In essence all those people who would provide the capital required for anyone who wished to run for Congress, the Senate or the Presidency.
 
The first job of the CFR was to gain control of the press. This task was given to John D. Rockefeller who set up a number of national news magazines such as Life, and Time. He financed Samuel Newhouse to buy up and establish a chain of newspapers all across the country, and Eugene Meyer also who would go on to buy up many publications such as the Washington Post, Newsweek, ant The Weekly Magazine.
 
The CFR also needed to gate control of radio, television and the motion picture industry. This task was split amongst the international bankers from, Kuhn Loeb, Goldman Sachs, the Warburgs, and the Lehmanns.
 
1925: This year's Jewish Encyclopaedia, states of the existence of Ashkenazi Jews (who represent approximately 90% of so-called world Jewry), with the startling admission that the so called enemy of the Jews, Esau (also known as Edom, see Genesis 36:1), now actually represents the Jewish race, when on page 42 of Volume V it is stated,
 
"Edom is in modern Jewry." So what they're basically saying is that these Ashkenazi Jews, who represent 90% of the so-called Jewish population, are actually gentiles or goyim themselves. 1926: N. M. Rothschild & Sons refinance the Underground Electric Railways Company of London Ltd which has a controlling interest in the entire London Underground transport system.
 
Maurice de Rothschild has a son, Edmond de Rothschild.
 
1929: The Rothschilds crash the United States economy by contracting the money supply.
 
1930: The first Rothschild world bank, the, "Bank for International Settlements (BIS)," is established in Basle, Switzerland. The same place as where 33 years earlier the first ever World Zionist Congress was held.
 
1933: On January 30, Adolf Hitler becomes Chancellor of Germany. He drives Jews, many of which were Communist out of Governmental positions within Germany. As a result of this, in July, the Jews hold a World Conference in Amsterdam during which they demand that Hitler re-instate every Jew back to his former position.
 
Hitler refuses and as a result of this, Samuel Untermyer, the Ashkenazi Jew who blackmailed President Wilson,and is now the head of the American delegation and the president of the whole conference, returns to the United States, and makes a speech on radio which was transcribed in the From the New York Times, Monday, August 7, 1933. In the speech he made the following statements,
 
"...the Jews are the aristocrats of the world...Our campaign is...the economic boycott against all German goods, shipping and services...What we are proposing...is to prosecute a purely defensive economic boycott that will undermine the Hitler regime and bring the German people to their senses by destroying their export trade on which their very existence depends... ...Each of you, Jew and Gentile alike...must refuse to deal with any merchant or shopkeeper who sells any German-made goods or who patronizes German ships or shipping."
 
As two thirds of Germany's food supply had to be imported, and could only be imported with the proceeds of what they exported, if Germany could not export, two thirds of Germany's population would starve, as there would be not enough food for more than one third of the population. As a result of this boycott, Jews throughout America, would protest outside and damage any stores in which they found any products with, "Made in Germany," printed on them, causing stores to have to dump these products or risk bankruptcy.
 
Once the effects of this boycott began to be felt in Germany, the Germans, who had demonstrated no violence towards the Jews up to this point, simply began boycotting Jewish stores in the same way the Jews had done to stores selling German products in America.
 
Rothschild financed IBM, supply machines to the Nazis which produce punch cards to help organize and manage the initial identification and social expulsion of Jews, the confiscation of their property and their extermination.
 
On November 16, President Roosevelt recognizes the Zionist regime of Stalin in Russia without consultation with Congress even as 8,000 Ukrainians march in protest in New York.
 
Also this year, President Roosevelt, born of a Jewish mother, therefore satisfying Ashkenazi rules of being Jewish, orders the all- seeing eye to be placed upon all new dollar bills along with the motto, "Novus Ordo Seclorum." This is latin for, "A New Order of the Ages."
 
1934: Swiss banking secrecy laws are reformed and it becomes an offence resulting in imprisonment for any bank employee to violate bank secrecy. This is all in preparation for the Rothschild engineered Second World War in which as usual they will fund both sides.
 
Edmond de Rothschild dies.
 
1936: With regard to the increase in anti-semitism in Germany, Samuel Landman (at the time, secretary to the World Zionist Organisation), in his 1936 book, Great Britain, The Jews, and Palestine states the following of the United States entry into World War 1,
 
"The fact that it was Jewish help that brought USA into the War on the side of the Allies has rankled ever since in German especially Nazi  minds, and has contributed in no small measure to the prominence which anti-Semitism occupies in the Nazi programme." 1938: On 7th November, a Jew, Herschel Grynszpan, assassinated Ernst vom Rath, a minor official at the German Embassy in Paris. As a result of this German hostility towards Jews in Germany started to turn violent. The Rothschilds Austrian banking house in Vienna, S. M. von Rothschild und Söhne, closes following the Nazi occupation of Austria.
 
1939: I.G. Farben the leading producer of chemicals in the world and largest German producer of steel dramatically increases its production. This increased production is almost exclusively used to arm Germany for the Second World War. This company was controlled by the Rothschilds and would go on to use Jews and other disaffected peoples as slave labour in the concentration camps. I.G. Farben also created the lethal Zyklon B gas that was used to exterminate the Jews.
 
On 1 September, the Second world war starts when Germany invades Poland. This was because the German leadership were a Christian leadership, who understood that Soviet Russia was led by Rothschild funded Communists, and they feared that as the Soviet Union grew in strength, these Jewish Communists would invade and wipe all the Christians off the map.
 
1940: Hansjurgen Koehler in his book, "Inside The Gestapo," states the following, of Maria Anna Schicklgruber, Adolf Hitler's grandmother,
 
"A little servant girl.came to Vienna and became a domestic servant.at the Rothschild mansion.and Hitler's unknown grandfather must be probably looked for in this magnificent house." This is backed up by Walter Langer in his book, "The Mind Of Hitler," in which he states, "Adolf's father, Alois Hitler, was the illegitimate son of Maria Anna Schicklgruber.Maria Anna Schicklgruber was living in Vienna at the time she conceived. At that time she was employed as a servant in the home of Baron Rothschild. As soon as the family discovered her pregnancy she was sent back home.where Alois was born." On the surface, it would appear Hitler was unlikely to be a Rothschild, but then again, when you discover the benefits that the Rothschilds got out of this war, both financially and politically, a Rothschild connection does not appear as outlandish as it may initially seem. 1941: President Roosevelt takes America into the second world war by refusing to sell Japan any more steel scrap or oil. Japan was in the midst of a war against China and without that scrap steel and oil, Japan would be unable to continue that war. Japan was totally dependent upon the United States for both steel scrap and oil. Roosevelt knew this action would provoke the Japanese to attack America, which they subsequently did at Pearl Harbor.
 
1942: Prescott Bush, father of future American Presidents' George Herbert Walker and George W, has his company seized under the, "Trading With The Enemy," Act. He was funding Hitler from America, whilst American soldiers were being killed by German soldiers.
 
Jews are also being slaughtered by these same soldiers. Interestingly the ADL never criticizes any of the Bushes for this.
 
1943: February 18th, Zionist, Izaak Greenbaum, head of the Jewish Agency Rescue Committee, in a speech to the Zionist Executive Council states,
 
"If I am asked, could you give from the UJA (United Jewish Appeal) monies to rescue Jews, I say, no and I say again no!" He would go onto state, "One cow in Palestine is worth more than all the Jews in Poland!" This is not a surprise, the whole idea of Zionist support for the slaughter of innocent Jews was to scare the survivors into believing that their only place of safety was Israel. How else do you think the Zionists could ensure Jews leave the beautiful European cities in which they live, in order to settle in a desert! 1944: On 6 November Lord Moyne, British Minister Resident in the Middle East was assassinated in Cairo by two members of the Jewish terrorist group, the Stern Gang, led by future Prime Minister of Israel, Yitzhak Shamir. He is also responsible for an assassination attempt against Harold MacMichael, the High Commissioner of the British Mandate of Palestine, this same year.
 
Interestingly he also masterminds another successful assassination this year against the United Nations representative in the Middle East, Count Folke Bernadotte who, although he had secured the release of 21,000 prisoners from German camps during World War II, was seen by Yitzak Shamir and his terrorist collaborators as an anti-Zionist.
 
In Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, two further Rothschild world banks are created. The International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the World Bank.

The History Of The House Of Rothschild   1743-1900
By Andrew Hitchcock
10-31-9

The Rothschilds have been in control of the world for a very long time, their tentacles reaching into many aspects of our daily lives, as is documented in the following timeline. However, before you jump to the timeline, please read this invaluable introduction which will tell you who the Rothschilds are as oppose to who they claim to be. The Rothschilds claim that they are Jewish, when in fact they are Khazars. They are from a country called Khazaria, which occupied the land locked between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea which is now predominantly occupied by Georgia. The reason the Rothschilds claim to be Jewish is that the Khazars under the instruction of the King, converted to the Jewish faith in 740 A.D., but of course that did not include converting their Asiatic Mongolian genes to the genes of the Jewish people.
 
You will find that approximately 90% of people in the world today who call themselves Jews are actually Khazars, or as they like to be known, Ashkenazi Jews. These people knowingly lie to the world with their claims that the land of Israel is theirs by birthright, when in actual fact their real homeland is over 800 miles away in Georgia.
 
So, next time you hear an Israeli Prime Minister bleating about the so- called persecution of the Jews, consider this, every Prime Minister of Israel has been an Ashkenazi Jew. Therefore when all these Prime Ministers have curried favour with the West for their re-establishment of a Jewish homeland, they have knowingly and deliberately lied to you, as they were never from that region, and they well know it, because it is they who call themselves Ashkenazi Jews.
 
The Book of Revelation, Chapter 2, Verse 9, states the following which would appear to be about these Ashkenazi Jews:
 
"I know thy works, and tribulation and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, butare the synagogue of Satan." The most wealthy bloodline in the world bar none and the leader of the Ashkenazi Jews in the world today is the Rothschild family. As you will see in the timeline, the Rothschilds have obtained this position through lies, manipulation and murder. Their bloodline also extends into the Royal Families of Europe, and the following family names: Astor; Bundy; Collins; duPont; Freeman; Kennedy; Morgan; Oppenheimer; Rockefeller; Sassoon; Schiff; Taft; and Van Duyn. However, these are not the only bloodlines to worry about. You are probably aware of the centuries old pratice undertaken by many Ashkenazi Jews whereby they would change their name, in order for them to appear part of the dominant race of the country in which they lived, so as they could obtain influential positions in that country, which they would then exploit to serve their real masters elsewhere. There is plenty of evidence to prove the Rothschilds continue that deceptive tradition.
 
Furthermore the Rothschilds are known to sire many children secretly that they can put into positions of power when required. This started with the very first man who took the name Rothschild, who had a secret sixth son. Finally, remember the world is a diverse place, I could if I wanted change my name to Rothschild, or any of the names listed above, and that would not make me part of this family anymore than converting to Judaism in 740 A.D. will make these Ashkenazis Jewish.
 
Please, therefore, do not automatically assume someone you see with the name Rothschild or any of the names listed above are part of the Rothschild criminal network. Furthermore and most importantly, the majority of Ashkenazi Jews are innocent and not part of this network. Check the facts out for yourself first, this article is designed to inform people who the enemy is, not single out people of a particular race or people with a particular surname, who may have nothing to do with this Rothschild criminal network.
 
 
1743: Mayer Amschel Bauer, an Ashkenazi Jew, is born in Frankfurt, Germany, the son of Moses Amschel Bauer, a money lender and the proprietor of a counting house.
 
Moses Amschel Bauer places a red sign above the entrance door to his counting house. This sign is a red hexagram (which geometrically and numerically translates into the number 666) which under Rothschild instruction will end up on the Israeli flag some two centuries later.
 
1753: Gutle Schnaper, an Ashkenazi Jew (future wife of Mayer Amschel Bauer), born to respected merchant, Wolf Salomon Schnaper.
 
1760: During this decade Mayer Amschel Bauer works for a bank owned by the Oppenheimers' in Hanover, Germany. He is highly successful and becomes a junior partner. Whilst working at the bank he becomes acquainted with General von Estorff.
 
Following his father's death, Bauer returns to Frankfurt to take over his father's business. Bauer recognises the significance of the red hexagram and changes his name from Bauer to Rothschild, after the red hexagram or sign signifying 666 hanging over the entrance door ("Rot," is German for, "Red," "Schild," is German for, "Sign").
 
Now Mayer Amschel Rothschild, he discovers that General von Estorff is now attached to the court of Prince William IX of Hesse-Hanau, one of the richest royal houses in Europe, which gained its' wealth by the hiring out of Hessian soldiers to foreign countries for vast profits (a practice that continues today in the form of exporting, "peacekeeping," troops throughout the world).
 
He therefore makes the General's re-acquaintance on the pretext of selling him valuable coins and trinkets at discounted prices. As he plans, Rothschild is subsequently introduced to Prince William himself who is more than pleased with discounted prices he charges for his rare coins and trinkets, and Rothschild offers him a bonus for any other business the Prince can direct his way.
 
Rothschild subsequently becomes close associates with Prince William, and ends up doing business with him and members of the court. He soon discovers that loaning money to governments and royalty is more profitable than loaning to individuals, as the loans are bigger and are secured by the nation's taxes.
 
1769: Mayer Amschel Rothschild is given permission by Prince William to hang a sign on the front of his business premises declaring that he is, "M. A. Rothschild, by appointment court factor to his serene highness, Prince William of Hanau."
 
1770: Mayer Amschel Rothschild draws up plans for the creation of the Illuminati and entrusts Ashkenazi Jew, Adam Weishaupt, a Crypto-Jew who was outwardly Roman Catholic, with its organization and development. The Illuminati is to be based upon the teachings of the Talmud, which is in turn, the teachings of Rabbinical Jews. It was to be called the Illuminati as this is a Luciferian term which means, keepers of the light.
 
Mayer Amschel Rothschild marries Gutle Schnaper.
 
1773: Amschel Mayer Rothschild born, the first of Mayer Amschel Rothschild's sons. He like all his brothers who follow him, will enter the family business at the age of 12.
 
1774: Salomon Mayer Rothschild born.
 
1776: Adam Weishaupt officially completes his organisation of the Illuminati on May 1 of this year. The purpose of the Illuminati is to divide the goyim (all non-Jews) through political, economic, social, and religious means. The opposing sides were to be armed and incidents were to be provided in order for them to: fight amongst themselves; destroy national governments; destroy religious institutions; and eventually destroy each other.
 
Weishaupt soon infiltrates the Continental Order of Freemasons with this Illuminati doctrine and establishes lodges of the Grand Orient to be their secret headquarters. This was all under the orders and finance of Mayer Amschel Rothschild and the concept has spread and is followed within Masonic Lodges worldwide to the present day.
 
Weishaupt also recruits 2,000 paid followers including the most intelligent men in the field of arts and letters, education, science, finance,and industry. They were instructed to follow the following methods in order to control people.
 
1) Use monetary and sex bribery to obtain control of men already in high places, in the various levels of all governments and other fields of endeavour. Once influential persons had fallen for the lies, deceits, and temptations of the Illuminati they were to be held in bondage by application of political and other forms of blackmail, threats of financial ruin, public exposure, and fiscal harm, even death to themselves and loved members of their families. 2) The faculties of colleges and universities were to cultivate students possessing exceptional mental ability belonging to well-bred families with international leanings, and recommend them for special training in internationalism, or rather the notion that only a one- world government can put an end to recurring wars and strife. Such training was to be provided by granting scholarships to those selected by the Illuminati.
 
3) All influential people trapped into coming under the control of the Illuminati, plus the students who had been specially educated and trained, were to be used as agents and placed behind the scenes of all governments as experts and specialists. This was so they would advise the top executives to adopt policies which would in the long-run serve the secret plans of the Illuminati one-world conspiracy and bring about the destruction of the governments and religions they were elected or appointed to serve.
 
4) To obtain absolute-control of the press, at that time the only mass-communications media which distributed information to the public, so that all news and information could be slanted in order to make the masses believe that a one-world government is the only solution to our many and varied problems.
 
1777: Nathan Mayer Rothschild born. 1784: Adam Weishaupt issues his order for the French Revolution to be started by by Maximilien Robespierre in book form. This book was written by one of Weishaupt's associates, Xavier Zwack, and sent by courier from Frankfurt to Paris. However en route there, the courier is struck by lightning, the book detailing this plan discovered by the police, and handed over to the Bavarian authorities.
 
As a consequence, the Bavarian government orders the police to raid Weishaupt's masonic lodges of the Grand Orient, and the homes of his most influential associates. Clearly, the Bavarian authorities were convinced that the book that was discovered was a very real threat by a private group of influential people, to use wars and revolutions to achieve their political ends.
 
1785: The Bavarian government outlaw the Illuminati and close all the Bavarian lodges of the Grand Orient.
 
Mayer Amschel Rothschild moves his family home to a five storey house in Frankfurt which he shares with the Schiff family.
 
1786: The Bavarian government publish the details of the Illuminati plot in a document entitled, "The Original Writings of The Order and Sect of The Illuminati." They then send this document to all the heads of church and state throughout Europe, but sadly their warning is ignored.
 
1788: Kalmann (Carl) Mayer Rothschild Born.
 
1789: Due to the European ignorance of the Bavarian government's warning, the Illuminati's plan for a French Revolution succeeded from this year to 1793. This revolution was a bankers' dream, it established a new constitution and passed laws that forbade the Roman Church from levying tithes (taxes) and also removed its exemption from taxation.
 
1790: Mayer Amschel Rothschild states,
 
"Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who writes the laws." 1791: The Rothschilds get, "control of a nation's money," through Alexander Hamilton (their agent in George Washington's cabinet) when they set up a central bank in the USA called the First Bank of the United States. This is established with a 20 year charter. 1792: Jacob (James) Mayer Rothschild born.
 
1796: Amschel Mayer Rothschild marries Eva Hanau.
 
1798: John Robison publishes a book entitled, "Proofs of a Conspiracy Against All the Religions and Governments of Europe Carried on in the Secret Meetings of Freemasons, Illuminati and Reading Societies." In this book, Professor Robison of the University of Edinburgh, one of the leading intellects of his time, who in 1783 was elected general secretary of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, gave details of the whole Rothschild Illuminati plot.
 
He advised how he had been a high degree mason in the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, and had been invited by Adam Weishaupt to Europe, where he had been given a revised copy of Weishaupt's conspiracy. However, although he pretended to go along with it, Professor Robison did not agree with it and therefore published his aforementioned book. The book included details of the Bavarian government's investigation into the Illuminati and the French Revolution.
 
That same year on July 19th, David Pappen, President of Harvard University, lectured the graduating class on the influence illuminism was having on American politics and religion.
 
At the age of 21, Nathan Mayer Rothschild leaves Frankfurt for England, where with a large sum of money given to him by his father, he sets up a banking house in London.
 
1800: Salomon Mayer Rothschild marries Caroline Stern.
 
1806: Napolean states that it is his,
 
"object to remove the house of Hess-Cassel from rulership and to strike it out of the list of powers." On hearing this, Prince William IX of Hesse-Hanau, flees Germany, goes to Denmark and entrusts his fortune valued at $3,000,000 at that time to Mayer Amschel Rothschild for safekeeping. Nathan Mayer Rothschild marries Hannah Barent Cohen the daughter of a wealthy London merchant.
 
1808: Nathan Mayer Rothschild has his first son born Lionel Nathan de Rothschild.
 
1810: Sir Francis Baring and Abraham Goldsmid die. This leaves Nathan Mayer Rothschild as the remaining major banker in England.
 
Salomon Mayer Rothschild goes to Vienna, Austria and sets up the bank, M. von Rothschild und Söhne.
 
1811: The charter for the Rothschilds Bank of the United States runs out and Congress votes against its renewal. Nathan Mayer Rothschild is not amused and he states,
 
"Either the application for renewal of the charter is granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war." However the United States stands firm and the Charter is not renewed, which causes Nathan Mayer Rothschild to issue another threat, "Teach those impudent Americans a lesson. Bring them back to colonial status." 1812: Backed by Rothschild money, and Nathan Mayer Rothschild's orders, the British declare war on the United States. The Rothschilds plan was to cause the United States to build up such a debt in fighting this war that they would have to surrender to the Rothschilds and allow the charter for the Rothschild owned First Bank of the United States to be renewed. Mayer Amschel Rothschild dies. In his will he lays out specific laws that the House of Rothschild were to follow: all key positions in the family business were only to be held by family members; only male members of the family were allowed to participate in the family business, this included a reported sixth secret bastard son (It is important to note that Mayer Amschel Rothschild also has five daughters, so today the spread of the Rothschild Zionist dynasty without the Rothschild name is far and wide, and Jews believe the mixed offspring of a Jewish mother is solely Jewish); the family was to intermarry with it's first and second cousins to preserve the family fortune (of the 18 marriages by Mayer Amschel Rothschild's grandchildren, 16 were between first cousins - a practice known today as inbreeding); no public inventory of his estate was to be published; no legal action was to be taken with regard to the value of the inheritance; the eldest son of the eldest son was to become the head of the family (this condition could only be overturned when the majority of the family agreed otherwise).
 
This was straightaway the case and Nathan Mayer Rothschild was elected head of the family following his father, Mayer Amschel Rothschild's death.
 
Jacob (James) Mayer Rothschild goes to Paris, France to set up the bank, de Rothschild Frères.
 
Nathaniel de Rothschild, the son in law of Jacob (James) Mayer Rothschild, born.
 
1814: With regard to the $3,000,000 Prince William IX of Hesse-Hanau had entrusted to Mayer Amschel Rothschild for safekeeping, for an account of what happened next we turn to the Jewish Encyclopaedia, 1905 edition, Volume 10, page 494, which states,
 
"According to legend this money was hidden away in wine casks, and, escaping the search of Napoleon's soldiers when they entered Frankfurt, was restored intact in the same casks in 1814, when the elector (Prince William IX of Hesse-Hanau) returned to the electorate (Germany). The facts are somewhat less romantic, and more businesslike." This last line indicates the money was never returned by Rothschild to Prince William IX of Hesse-Hanau. The encyclopaedia goes on to state, "Nathan Mayer Rothschild invested this $3,000,000 in, gold from the East India Company knowing that it would be needed for Wellington's peninsula campaign." On the stolen money Nathan made, "no less than four profits: i) On the sale of Wellington's paper which he bought at 50 cents on the dollar and collected at par; ii) on the sale of gold to Wellington; iii) on its repurchase; and iv) on forwarding it to Portugal." 1815: The five Rothschild brothers work to supply gold to both Wellington's army (through Nathan in England) and Napoleon's army (through Jacob in France), and begin their policy of funding both sides in wars. The Rothschilds love wars because they are massive generators of risk free debt. This is because they are guaranteed by the government of a country, and therefore the efforts of the population of that country, and it doesn't matter if that country loses the war because the loans are given on the guarantee that the victor will honour the debts of the vanquished.
 
Whilst the Rothschilds are funding both sides in this war, they use the banks they have spread out across Europe to give them the opportunity to set up an unrivalled postal service network of secret routes and fast couriers. The post these couriers carried was to be opened up by these couriers and their details given to the Rothschilds so they always were one step ahead of current events.
 
Furthermore, these Rothschild couriers were the only merchants allowed to pass through the English and French blockades. It was these couriers who also kept Nathan Mayer Rothschild up to date with how the war was going so he could use that intelligence to buy and sell from his position on the stock exchange in accordance with that intelligence.
 
One of Rothschild's couriers was a man named Rothworth. When the outcome of the Battle of Waterloo was won by the British, Rothworth took off for the Channel and was able to deliver this news to Nathan Mayer Rothschild, a full 24 hours before Wellington's own courier.
 
At that time British bonds were called consuls and they were traded on the floor of the stock exchange. Nathan Mayer Rothschild instructed all his workers on the floor to start selling consuls. The made all the other traders believe that the British had lost the war so they started selling frantically.
 
Therefore the consuls plummeted in value which was when Nathan Mayer Rothschild discreetly instructed his workers to purchase all the consuls they could lay their hands on.
 
When news came through that the British had actually won the war, the consuls went up to a level even higher than before the war ended leaving Nathan Mayer Rothschild with a return of approximately 20 to 1 on his investment.
 
This gave the Rothschild family complete control of the British economy, now the financial centre of the world following Napolean's defeat, and forced England to set up a new Bank of England, which Nathan Mayer Rothschild controlled.
 
Interestingly 100 years later the New York Times would run a story stating that Nathan Mayer Rothschild's grandson had attempted to secure a court order to suppress publication of a book which had this insider trading story in it. The Rothschild family claimed the story was untrue and libellous, but the court denied the Rothschilds request and ordered the family to pay all court costs.
 
Back to 1815, this is the year Nathan Mayer Rothschild makes his famous statement,
 
"I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls Britain's money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply." He would go onto brag that in the 17 years he had been in England he had increased the £20,000 stake given to him by his father, 2500 times to £50 million. The Rothschilds also use their control of the Bank of England to replace the method of shipping gold from country to country and instead used their five banks spread across Europe to set up a system of paper debits and credits, the banking system of today.
 
By the end of this century, a period of time that was known as the, "Age of the Rothschilds," it is estimated that the Rothschild family controlled half the wealth of the world.
 
However something that did not go well for the Rothschilds this year was the Congress of Vienna, which started in September, 1814 and concluded in June of this year. The reason for this Congress of Vienna, was for the Rothschilds to create a form of world government, to give them complete political control over much of the civilized world.
 
Many of the European governments were in debt to the Rothschilds, so they figured they could use that as a bargaining tool. However the Tsar Alexander I of Russia, who had not succumbed to a Rothschild central bank, would not go along with the plan, so the Rothschild world government plan failed.
 
Enraged by this, Nathan Mayer Rothschild swore that some day he or his descendants would destroy the Tsar Alexander I's entire family and descendants. Unfortunately he was true to his word and 102 years later Rothschild funded Bolsheviks would act upon that promise.
 
Interestingly, world government fanatic and Ashkenazi Jew, Henry Kissinger, did his doctoral dissertation on the Congress of Vienna.
 
1816: The American Congress passes a bill permitting yet another Rothschild dominated central bank, which gives the Rothschilds control of the American money supply again. This is called the Second Bank of the United States and is given a twenty year charter. The British war against the America therefore ends with the deaths of thousands of British and American soldiers, but the Rothschilds get their bank.
 
1818: Following the French securing massive loans in 1817 in order to help rebuild after their disastrous defeat at Waterloo, Rothschild agents bought vast amounts of French government bonds causing their value to increase.
 
On November 5th they dumped the lot on the open market causing their value to plummet and France to go into a financial panic. The Rothschilds then stepped in to take control of the French money supply. This was the same year the Rothschilds were able to loan £5,000,000 to the Prussian government.
 
1821: Kalmann (Carl) Mayer Rothschild was sent to Naples, Italy. He would end up doing a lot of business with the Vatican and Pope Gregory XVI subsequently conferred upon him the Order of St. George.
 
Also, whenever the Pope received Kalmann, he would give him his hand rather than the customary toe to kiss, which showed the extent of Kalmann's power over the Vatican.
 
1822: The emperor of Austria made the five Rothschild brothers Barons. Nathan Mayer Rothschild chose not to take up the title.
 
1823: The Rothschilds take over the financial operations of the Catholic Church, worldwide.
 
1827: Sir Walter Scott publishes his nine volume set, The life of Napolean and in volume two he states that the French Revolution was planned by the Illuminati (Adam Weishaupt) and was financed by the money changers of Europe (The Rothschilds).
 
1832: President Andrew Jackson (the 7th President of the United States from 1829 to 1837), runs the campaign for his second term in office under the slogan, "Jackson And No Bank!" This is in reference to his plan to take the control of the American money system to benefit the American people, not for the profiteering of the Rothschilds.
 
1833: President Andrew Jackson starts removing the government's deposits from the Rothschild controlled, Second Bank of the United States and instead deposits them into banks directed by democratic bankers.
 
This causes the Rothschilds to panic and so they do what they do best, contract the money supply causing a depression. President Jackson knows what they are up to and later states,
 
"You are a den of thieves vipers, and I intend to rout you out, and by the Eternal God, I will rout you out." 1834: The Italian revolutionary leader, Guiseppe Mazzini, is selected by the Illuminati to direct their revolutionary program throughout the world and would serve in that capacity until he died in 1872. 1835: On January 30, an assassin tries to shoot President Jackson, but miraculously both of the assassin's pistols misfired. President Jackson would later claim that he knew the Rothschilds were responsible for that attempted assassination. He is not the only one, the assassin, Richard Lawrence, who was found not guilty by reason of insanity, later bragged that powerful people in Europe had hired him and promised to protect him if he were caught.
 
The Rothschilds acquire the rights in the Almadén quicksilver mines in Spain. This was at the time the biggest concession in the world and as quicksilver was a vital component in the refining of gold or silver this gave the Rothschilds a virtual world monopoly.
 
1836: Following his years of fighting against the Rothschilds and their central bank in America, President Andrew Jackson finally succeeds in throwing the Rothschilds central bank out of America, when the bank's charter is not renewed. It would not be until 1913 that the Rothschilds would be able to set up their third central bank in America, the Federal Reserve, and to ensure no mistakes are made, this time they will put one of their own bloodline, Jacob Schiff, in charge of the project.
 
Nathan Mayer Rothschild dies and the control of his bank, N. M. Rothschild & Sons is passed on to his younger brother, James Mayer Rothschild.
 
1837: The Rothschilds send one of their own, August Belmont, an Ashkenazi Jew, to America to salvage their banking interests defeated by President Andrew Jackson.
 
1840: The Rothschilds become the Bank of England's bullion brokers. They set up agencies in California and Australia.
 
1841: President John Tyler (the 10th President of the United States From 1841 to 1845) vetoed the act to renew the charter for the Bank of the United States. He goes on to receive hundreds of letters threatening him with assassination.
 
1844: Salomon Mayer Rothschild purchases the United Coal Mines of Vítkovice and Austro-Hungarian Blast Furnace Company that would go on to be one of the top ten global industrial concerns.
 
Benjamin Disraeli, an Ashkenazi Jew (who would go on to become British Prime Minister twice - the only admitted Ashkenazi Jew to do so) publishes Coningsby, in which he characterises Nathan Mayer Rothschild as,
 
"the Lord and Master of the money markets of the world, and of course virtually Lord and Master of everything else. He literally held the revenues of Southern Italy in pawn, and Monarchs and Ministers of all countries courted his advice and were guided by his suggestions." 1845: The Great American Patriot, Andrew Jackson (7th President of the United States) dies. Before his death he is asked what he regarded his as greatest achievement. He replies without hesitation,
 
"I Killed The Bank," This is in reference to the fact he banished the Rothschilds Second Bank of the United States in 1836. Jacob (James) Mayer Rothschild (who by now had married his niece, Betty, Salomon Mayer Rothschild's daughter), now known as Baron James de Rothschild, wins the contract to build the first major railway line across the country.
 
This was called the Chemin De Fer Du Nord and ran initially from Paris to Valenciennes and then joined with the Austrian rail network built by his brother (and wife's father - all sounds a bit sordid doesn't it) Salomon Mayer Rothschild.
 
1847: Lionel De Rothschild now married to the daughter of his uncle, Kalmann (Carl) Mayer Rothschild, is elected to the parliamentary seat for the City of London.
 
A requirement for entering parliament was to take an oath in the true faith of a Christian. Lionel De Rothschild refused to do this as he was Jewish and his seat in parliament remained empty for 11 years until new oaths were allowed. He must have been an invaluable representative for his constituency, bearing in mind he could never vote on any bill as he never entered parliament! I wonder how he managed to keep his parliamentary seat for 11 years?
 
1848: Karl Marx, an Ashkenazi Jew, publishes, "The Communist Manifesto." Interestingly at the same time as he is working on this, Karl Ritter of Frankfurt University was writing the antithesis which would form the basis for Freidrich Wilhelm Nietzsche's, "Nietzscheanism." This Nietzecheanism was later developed into Fascism and then into Nazism and was used to forment the first and second world wars.
 
Marx, Ritter, and Nietzsche were all funded and under the instruction of the Rothschilds. The idea was that those who direct the overall conspiracy could use the differences in those two so-called ideologies to enable them to divide larger and larger factions of the human race into opposing camps so that they could be armed and then brainwashed into fighting and destroying each other, and particularly, to destroy all political and religious institutions. The same plan put forward by Weishaupt in 1776.
 
Eva Hanau, Amschel Mayer Rothschild's wife dies.
 
1849: Gutle Schnaper, Mayer Amschel Rothschild's wife dies. Before her death she would nonchalantly state,
 
"If my sons did not want wars, there would be none." 1850: Construction begins this decade on the manor houses of Mentmore in England and Ferrières in France, more Rothschilds Manors will follow throughout the world, all of them filled with works of art. Jacob (James) Rothschild in France is said to be worth 600 million francs, which at the time was 150 million francs more than all the other bankers in France put together.
 
1852: N.M. Rothschild & Sons begins refining gold and silver for the Royal Mint and the Bank of England and other international customers.
 
1853: Nathaniel de Rothschild, the son in law of Jacob (James) Mayer Rothschild, purchases Château Brane Mouton, the Bordeaux vineyard of Mouton, and renames it Château Mouton Rothschild.
 
1854: Caroline Stern, Salomon Mayer Rothschild's wife, dies.
 
1855: Amschel Mayer Rothschild dies.
 
Salomon Mayer Rothschild dies.
 
Kalmann (Carl) Mayer Rothschild dies.
 
1858: Lionel De Rothschild finally takes his seat in parliament when the requirement to take an oath in the true faith of a Christian is broadened to include other oaths. He becomes the first Jewish member of the British parliament.
 
1861: President Abraham Lincoln (16th President of the United States from 1860 till his assassination in 1865) approaches the big banks in New York to try to obtain loans to support the ongoing American civil war. As these large banks were heavily under the influence of the Rothschilds, they offer him a deal they know he cannot accept, 24% to 36% interest on all monies loaned.
 
Lincoln is very angry about this high level of interest and so he prints his own debt free money and informs the public that this is now legal tender for both public and private debts.
 
1862: By April $449,338,902 worth of Lincoln's debt free money has been printed and distributed. He states of this,
 
"We gave the people of this republic the greatest blessing they ever had, their own paper money to pay their own debts." That same year The Times of London publishes a story containing the following statement, "If that mischievous financial policy, which had its origin in the North American Republic, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without a debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of civilized governments of the world. The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe." 1863: President Abraham Lincoln discovers the Tsar of Russia, Alexander II (1855  1881), was having problems with the Rothschilds as well as he was refusing their continual attempts to set up a central bank in Russia. The Tsar then gives President Lincoln some unexpected help. The Tsar issued orders that if either England or France actively intervened in the American Civil War, and help the South, Russia would consider such action a declaration of war, and take the side of President Lincoln. To show that he wasn't messing about, he sent part of his Pacific Fleet to port in San Francisco and another part to New York.
 
The Rothschild banking house in Naples, Italy, C. M. de Rothschild e figli, closes following the unification of Italy. The Rothschilds use one of their own in America, John D. Rockefeller, to form an oil business called Standard Oil which eventually takes over all of its competition.
 
1864: Rothschild, August Belmont, who by now is the Democratic Party's National Chairman, supports General George McClellan as the Democratic nominee to run against President Abraham Lincoln in this year's election. Much to the anger of Belmont, President Lincoln wins the election.
 
1865: In a statement to Congress, President Abraham Lincoln states,
 
"I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me, and the financial institutions in the rear. Of the two, the one in my rear is my greatest foe." Later that year, on April 14, President Lincoln is assassinated, less than two months before the end of the American Civil War. Following a brief training period in the Rothschilds London Bank, Jacob Schiff, a Rothschild, born in their house in Frankfurt, arrives in America at the age of 18, with instructions and the finance necessary to buy into a banking house there. The purpose of this was to carry out the following tasks.
 
1. Gain control of America's money system through the establishment of a central bank. 2. Find desirable men, who for a price, would be willing to serve as stooges for the Illuminati and promote them into high places in the federal government, the Congress, Supreme Court, and all the federal agencies. 3. Create minority group strife throughout the nations, particularly targeting the whites and blacks. 4. Create a movement to destroy religion in the United States, with Christianity as the main target. Nathaniel de Rothschild becomes Member of Parliament for Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. 1868: Jacob (James) Mayer Rothschild dies, shortly after purchasing Château Lafite, one of the four great premier grand cru estates of France. He is the last of Mayer Amschel Rothschild's sons to die.
 
1870: Nathaniel de Rothschild dies.
 
1871: An American General named, Albert Pike, who had been enticed into the Illuminati by Guissepe Mazzini, completes his military blueprint for three world wars and various revolutions throughout the world, culminating into moving this great conspiracy into its final stage.
 
The first world war is to be fought for the purpose of destroying the Tsar in Russia,as promised by Nathan Mayer Rothschild in 1815. The Tsar is to be replaced with communism which is to be used to attack religions, predominantly Christianity. The differences between the British and German empires are to be used to forment this war.
 
The second world war is to be used to forment the controversy between facism and political zionism with the slaughter of Jews in Germany a lynchpin in bringing hatred against the German people. This is designed to destroy fascism (which the Rothschilds created) and increase the power of political zionism. This war is also designed to increase the power of communism to the level that it equalled that of united Christendom.
 
The third world war is to be played out by stirring up hatred of the Muslim world for the purposes of playing the Islamic world and the political zionists off against one another. Whilst this is going on, the remaining nations would be forced to fight themselves into a state of mental, physical, spiritual and economic exhaustion.
 
On August 15th of this year, Albert Pike writes a letter (now catalogued in the British Museum) to Guiseppe Mazzini in which he states the following,
 
"We shall unleash the nihilists and the atheists and we shall provoke a great social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to all nations the effect of absolute atheism; the origins of savagery and of most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the people will be forced to defend themselves against the world minority of the world revolutionaries and will exterminate those destroyers of civilization and the multitudes disillusioned with Christianity whose spirits will be from that moment without direction and leadership and anxious for an ideal, but without knowledge where to send its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer brought finally out into public view. A manifestation which will result from a general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and Atheism; both conquered and exterminated at the same time."
 
Pike, who having been elected as Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry's Southern Jurisdiction in 1859, was the most powerful Freemason in America. He would retain that post for 32 years until his death in 1891. He also published a book on the subject in 1872 entitled, "Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry," in which he candidly states the following, "LUCIFER, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darknesss! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual or selfish Souls? Doubt it not!" 1872: Prior to Guiseppe Mazzini's death this year, he makes another revolutionary leader named Adrian Lemmy his successor. Lemmy will be subsequently succeeded by Lenin and Trotsky, then by Stalin. The revolutionary activities of all these men are financed by the Rothschilds. 1873: The loss making Rio Tinto copper mines in Spain, are purchased by a group of foreign financiers including the Rothschilds. These mines represented Europe's largest source of copper.
 
1875: On January 1 of this year Jacob Schiff, now Solomon Loeb's son- in-law after marrying his daughter, Teresa, takes control of the banking house, Kuhn, Loeb & Co. He goes on to finance John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company, Edward R. Harriman's Railroad Empire, and Andrew Carnegie's Steel Empire. This is all with Rothschild money.
 
He then identifies the other largest bankers in America at that time. They are, J.P. Morgan who controls Wall Street, and the Drexels and the Biddles of Philadelphia. All the other financiers, big and little, danced to the music of those three houses. Schiff then gets the European Rothschilds to set up European branches of these three large banks on the understanding that Schiff, and therefore Rothschild, is to be the boss of banking in New York and therefore America.
 
N M Rothschild & Sons undertake a share issue to raise capital for the first channel tunnel project to link France to England, with half of its capital coming from the Rothschild owned Compagnie du Chemin de Fer du Nord.
 
This year Lionel De Rothschild also loans Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli the finance for the British government to purchase the shares in the Suez Canal, from Khedive Said of Egypt. This was done as the Rothschilds needed this access route to be held by a government they controlled, so they could use that government's military to protect their huge business interests in the Middle East.
 
1876: Otto von Bismarck states,
 
"The division of the United States into two federations of equal force was decided long before the civil war by the high financial power of Europe. These bankers were afraid that the United States, if they remained in one block and as one nation, would attain economical and financial independence, which would upset their financial domination over the world. The voice of the Rothschilds predominated. They foresaw the tremendous booty if they could substitute two feeble democracies, indebted to the financiers, to the vigorous Republic, confident and self-providing. Therefore they started their emissaries in order to exploit the question of slavery and thus dig an abyss between the two parts of the Republic."
 
1879: Lionel de Rothschild dies. 1880: Rothschild agents begin formenting a series of pogroms predominantly in Russia, but also in Poland, Bulgaria and Romania. These pogroms resulted in the slaughter of thousands of innocent Jews, causing approximately 2 million to flee, mainly to New York, but also to Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston and Los Angeles.
 
The reason these pogroms were initiated, was to create a large Jewish base in America, who when they arrived, would be educated to register as Democrat voters. Some twenty years later, this would result in in a massive Democratic power base in the United States and be used to elect Rothschild front men such as Woodrow Wilson, to the Presidency, to carry out the bidding of the Rothschilds.
 
1881: President James A. Garfield (The 20th President of the United States who lasted only 100 Days) states two weeks before he is assassinated,
 
"Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerceand when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate." Edmond James de Rothschild has a son Maurice de Rothschild. 1883: After 6,000 feet of tunnel in the channel tunnel project being excavated, the British government halt the project citing the fact that it would be a threat to Britain's security.
 
1885: Nathaniel Rothschild, son of Lionel De Rothschild, becomes the first Jewish peer and is takes the title of Lord Rothschild.
 
1886: The French Rothschild bank, de Rothschild Frères obtains substantial amounts of Russia's oil fields and forms the Caspian and Black Sea Petroleum Company, which quickly becomes the world's second largest oil producer.
 
1887: Opium trafficker in China, Edward Albert Sassoon, marries Aline Caroline de Rothschild, the grand-daughter of Jacob (James) Mayer Rothschild. Aline Caroline's father, Gustave, together with his brother, Alphonse, took over the Rothschild's french arm following their father Jacob's death.
 
The Rothschilds finance the amalgamation of the Kimberley diamond mines in South Africa. They subsequently become the biggest shareholders of this company, De Beers, and mine precious stones in Africa and India.
 
1888: Noémie Halphen, future wife of Maurice de Rothschild born.
 
1891: The British Labour Leader makes the following statement on the subject of the Rothschilds,
 
"This blood-sucking crew has been the cause of untold mischief and misery in Europe during the present century, and has piled up its prodigious wealth chiefly through fomenting wars between States which ought never to have quarrelled. Whenever there is trouble in Europe, wherever rumours of war circulate and men's minds are distraught with fear of change and calamity you may be sure that a hook-nosed Rothschild is at his games somewhere near the region of the disturbance."
 
Comments like this worry the Rothschilds and towards the end of the 1800's they purchase Reuters news agency so they can have some control of the media. 1895: Edmond James de Rothschild the youngest son of Jacob (James) Mayer Rothschild visits Palestine and subsequently supplies the funds to found the first Jewish colonies there, this is to further their long term objective of creating a Rothschild owned country.
 
1897: The Rothschilds found the Zionist Congress to promote Zionism (a political movement with the sole aim of moving all Jews into a singularly Jewish nation state) and arrange its first meeting in Munich. However due to extreme opposition from local Jews, who are quite happy where they are, this meeting has to be moved to Basle, Switzerland and takes place on 29 August. The meeting is chaired by Ashkenazi Jew, Theodor Herzl, who would state in his diaries,
 
"It is essential that the sufferings of Jews.become worse.this will assist in realization of our plans.I have an excellent idea.I shall induce anti-Semites to liquidate Jewish wealth.The anti-Semites will assist us thereby in that they will strengthen the persecution and oppression of Jews. The anti-Semites shall be our best friends." Herzl is subsequently elected President of the Zionist Organisation which adopts the, "Rothschild Red Hexagram or Sign," as the Zionist flag which 51 years later will end up as the flag of Israel. Edward Henry Harriman becomes a director of the Union Pacific Railroad and goes on to take control of the Southern Pacific Railroad. This is all financed by the Rothschilds.
 
1898: Ferdinand de Rothschild dies.

Bloody Utopian Dreams, Part I:
Hammer and Sickle

By Carl Teichrib - March 2005
Please visit his website at www.forcingchange.org

Author's Note: This is the first article in a multi-part series on New Age thought and political utopianism.
Part 2: The Enigma of the Third Reich | Part 3: The Politics and Religion of Population Control

"Ideas grow out of history; they also shape history." Stuart R. Schram, The Political Thought of Mao Tse-tung [1].

"Power kills; absolute Power kills absolutely."  R.J. Rummel, Death By Government [2].


Ever since humanity was ushered out of the Garden of Eden for rebellion against God (Genesis 3), we have been constantly scheming and working towards unifying Man with some system of Paradise. From the mystical doctrines of the Egyptian mystery religions to the hammer and sickle of the Soviet Union, from Plato's Republic and council of wise men to the dreams and aspirations of a globally enhanced United Nations - mankind has sought to create the "perfect utopian" society shaped in Man's image.

The New Age Movement fits in nicely with this concept, envisioning a spiritually evolved humanity coupled with a complete global social, political, and economic system [3]. It's a world where cosmic harmony and attunement motivates and permeates each group and individual, and where every nation and culture can come together in solidarity and equity. If you're thinking that all of this sounds like a blend of Karl Marx's communism and H.P. Blavatsky's Theosophical mysticism, you're not far off.

Spiritually Endorsing the Great Atheist-Experiment

Marx, the founder of communism, postulated a model for state control of all economic production [4]. His ideas, interpreted and carried forward by V.I. Lenin, Joseph Stalin, and Mao Tse-tung, were an attempt to achieve the utopian atheist political and economic regime. The results of this experiment in paradise-building; over 100 million dead, millions more imprisoned, vast regions depopulated, and suffering such as the world has never before seen [for a statistical analysis of government sponsored mass murder, see R.J. Rummel, Death By Government, Lethal Politics: Soviet Genocide and Mass Murder Since 1917, and China's Bloody Century: Genocide and Mass Murder Since 1900.)

But never mind the mountain range of corpses, the New Age Movement and the spiritual masters behind New Age thought have somehow managed to transcended the biggest bloodbath in history.

Consider the following quotes from the New Age spirit master, Maitreya the Christ, as channeled to Benjamin Crème - keep in mind, these words were transmitted during the height of the Cold War,
"Man is One. That, essentially, is what Marx is saying. Man is One, Humanity is One. Eventually, all social systems will tend towards a system which encourages that brotherhood or Oneness of man which Marx senses, as a spiritual Being." [5] (Author's note: Maitreya then tells Crème that the fault in the theory was how it was imposed!)

"In the future, the not too distant future, we will come to see that all political systems are divine expressions. There is more in common between true Democracy and true Communism than there would seem to be today. What is called communism today as it exists in Russia, China and the Communist world, is in no sense true Communism, but it is an evolving structure, moving towards a more perfect expression of the thought-form as it exists in the Divine Mind; likewise with Democracy."[6]

In another series of New Age messages channeled during the Cold War, the spirit being calling itself "I AM" transmitted an extensive plan for a worker's world communist paradise.
"The old world has come to its end. You know that the end only happens once. It has been prophesied all through history, and the end of fantasies comes now. Everyone waited for the end. Even the Communists who said they were Communists waited for the end. They taught that Capitalism and Socialism could coexist together. Yes, they can coexist together until the end; but Communism must begin now. Actually, everyone wants Universal Communism, which is the same as real Communism.

"All the things I channeled through Karl Marx follow the same social science and economics I taught in the Bible and am teaching here....

"The major religions are facing Socialism as a force they can build my Kingdom with, and they will take the initiative and introduce Communism into it. No sermon preached of any world religion that leaves out Marxism-Leninism can face the immediate reality." [7]

This is only one small portion of I AM's message. In fact, the entire text, titled God - Ultimate Unlimited Mind - Speaks, is over 450 pages in length and has, as a central theme, the literal establishment of a "New World Government" through a planetary form of "true" Communism.

One particular Ascended Master, the Tibetan Master Djwhal Khul [in the New Age an Ascended Master is a highly evolved spiritual entity], channeled the raisons de'être for the despots and tyrants of the last two hundred years, ascribing to them a high and beneficial role in the development of human spiritual enlightenment. Alice Bailey, one of the more prominent leaders of the Theosophical movement [Theosophy has been a key factor in the creation of today's modern New Age Movement], recorded the Tibetan's words in her book, The Externalisation of the Hierarchy,

"They [France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Portugal] have...reacted to that force [Shamballa Force] through the medium of certain great and outstanding personalities who were peculiarly sensitive to the will-to-power and the will-to-change and who...have altered the character of their national life, and emphasised increasingly the wider human values. The men who inspired the French revolution; the conqueror, Napoleon; Bismarck, the creator of a nation; Mussolini, the regenerator of his people; Hitler, who lifted a distressed people upon his shoulders; Lenin, the idealist; Stalin and Franco are all expressions of the Shamballa force and of certain little understood energies. These have wrought significant changes in their day and generation...
 
"We call these people dictators, demagogues, inspired leaders, or just and wise men, according to our particular ideology, tradition, attitudes to our fellowmen and our particular political, economic and religious training. But all these leaders are...in the last analysis, highly developed personalities. They are being used to engineer great and needed changes and to alter the face of civilization...
 
"Blame not the personalities involved or the men who produce these events before which we stand today bewildered and appalled. They are only the product of the past and the victims of the present. At the same time, they are the agents of destiny, the creators of the new order and the initiators of the new civilization; they are the destroyers of what must be destroyed before humanity can go forward along the Lighted Way."[8]

"...They are the destroyers of what must be destroyed..." Think about it! This section of The Externalisation of the Hierarchy was written in 1939, the year World War II began. Hitler's atrocities against his own people - particularly the infirmed and incurables - was known by 1939, as was his treatment of German Jews [9]. Mussolini's tactics were also known, as was the executions by Franco's Nationalists Spain [10]. Lenin and Stalin's crushing of their own people, soaking the Russian motherland with the blood of its citizens, was known too [11]. And the French Revolution, with its forests of guillotines, had kick started revolutionary ideologies that had bled Europe and other parts of the world over and over again [12].

But remember, it was the master Djwhal Khul, a spiritual entity that can supposedly transcend time and space [hence, ignorance cannot be used as an excuse], that basically proclaimed all of this death and destruction as good and necessary. Why? So that "humanity can go forward along the Lighted Way."

Welcome to the real New Age

Now please understand, not every New Age leader, author, or medium speaks highly of communism or despotism. Most of the time the word "communism," or the names of Marx or Lenin, never enters into the New Age lexicon. But there is a remarkably shared vision between the New Age "global society" - the ideal of a centralist system with a completely transformed humanity - and the centralist utopian visions of political tyrants, complete with their various concepts of human social transformation.

How so? The New Age Movement, like the political utopians of the twentieth century, seeks a "perfect world" balanced by economic, political, and spiritual unity and harmony. It's the World State, where global citizenship and planetary spirituality merges into the "perfect centralized" system.

In this mystical paradise society, nature, man, and God are placed on the same plane. Mankind, once spiritually evolved and recognizing its collective consciousness, is God. Likewise, the despot rulers of our immediate past exhibited the same ego-mania: the atheist state, a product of evolved man, was touted as God - and the Party and its leaders were the voice of this despotic-state deity.

Both ideologies, in their various forms and conceptions, sought and seek to re-create the Garden of Eden. But this Garden, be it built by Leninism or constructed by men and women who follow the teachings of other-worldly voices, cannot escape the facts of human nature - greed, arrogance, and a never ending focus on self. Scarier yet, the spirit masters forwarding this centralist New Age society exhibit qualities that parallel human fallacies. What would these channeled entities like to see destroyed so that "humanity can go forward along the Lighted Way"?

A utopian New Age united world, where tolerance is enforced in the name of diversity, and mankind steered down the path of social and spiritual transformation; would it be any different than the Communist system, where the hammer crushed indiscriminately and the sickle reaped were it did not sow?


Bloody Utopian Dreams, Part 2
The Enigma of the Third Reich

By Carl Teichrib - March 2005


“We have to take the Nazis seriously; after all they were the authors of a regime that took the lives of some 40 million people and the destruction of most of Europe…therefore, since such people took occultism seriously, so should we.” — David Morris, The Masks of Lucifer [1].

“Political parties are inclined to compromises; philosophies never.” — Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf [2].

Ever since humanity was ushered out of the Garden of Eden for rebellion against God (Genesis 3), we have been constantly scheming and working toward unifying Man with some system of Paradise. From the mystical doctrines of the Egyptian mystery religions to the hammer and sickle of the Soviet Union, from Plato’s Republic and council of wise men to the dreams and aspirations of a globally enhanced United Nations – mankind has sought to create the “perfect utopian” society shaped in Man’s image.

The New Age Movement fits in nicely with this concept, envisioning a spiritually evolved humanity coupled with a complete global social, political, and economic system [3]. It’s a world where cosmic forces are at work shaping individuals, cultures, and entire nations. It’s a world where “old norms” are torn down, and where newness is embraced – and yet, in this remaking of the world, ancient powers, symbols, and mythologies are drawn upon in this quest to re-forge civilization.

A New Fundamental Philosophy

The following words, penned by Adolf Hitler, the leader of the National Socialist German Worker’s Party, demonstrated the essential point of Nazism: a new and fundamental philosophy.
“It was self-evident that the new movement could hope to achieve the necessary importance and the required strength for this gigantic struggle only if it succeeded from the very first day in arousing in the hearts of its supporters the holy conviction that with it political life was to be given, not to a new election slogan, but to a new philosophy of fundamental significance." [4]
As the political and forceful expression of this “holy conviction,” the Nazi Party’s new philosophy centered on the interlocking ideals of blood and soil, race and Nature. Ultimately, it was believed, humanity’s spiritual and cultural evolution would rest on the strength of the Germanized Aryan ideal.

And then Europe burned.

It’s in the Roots

Millions of pages of material have been published in an attempt to explain Germany’s military actions, political structures, and overall historical impact. And much thought has been given to Germany’s social and cultural setting. But one area that hasn’t seen as much literature is in the realm of German esoteric interests. There has been some items published on this subject, but it’s hard to find non-sensationalist accounts. However, we can glean some important material that points to the philosophical roots – the “holy conviction” – of the German National Socialist ideology.
 
Note: Much of the historical material on the Germanic esoteric societies and their links to National Socialism is based on the scholarly work of Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke and his book, The Occult Roots of Nazism: Secret Aryan Cults and their Influence on Nazi Ideology (New York University Press, 1985/1992)

Germany’s theological roots run deep; Martin Luther’s strike against entrenched Roman Catholicism, and much of the ensuing Reformation and Anabaptist movement, are historically significant to Germany. As such, this particular nation has been looked up to for centuries as a bastion of theological thought and action. However, Germany’s spiritual history encompasses more than just the Reformation. Rosicrucian orders [5] and other esoteric schools of thought emerged from the German heartland. But it wasn’t a German-born who gave impetus to the Nazi philosophy, it was a Russian-born woman by the name of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky – the founder of the Theosophical Society.

Blavatsky, in her seminal work, The Secret Doctrine, outlines the activities of “God” throughout a number of evolutionary cycles. Each cycle, she explained, witnessed the rise and fall of “root-races,” and the pinnacle of mankind at this historical stage of the cycle was represented by the Aryan race. Furthermore, Blavatsky’s theosophical ideas also incorporated reincarnation, karma, and other Hindu beliefs. Gnosticism, Hermetic philosophies, Kabbalahism, Eastern religions, occult lore, alternative esoteric histories and mythologies – all of these streams of spirituality funneled into Blavatsky’s writings. And through this blending of mystical concepts, her emphasis on racial development and evolutionary hierarchy struck a cord within segments of American, Indian, English, and German high-society.

In 1884, the first German Theosophical Society was established. But because of internal stresses and outside accusations made against Blavatsky, this particular organization fell apart. However, the interest in theosophy remained, and by 1896 a German national branch of the International Theosophical Brotherhood was established [6].

Out of this greater interest in theosophy – and the re-organized German Theosophical Society in particular – a number of splinter groups and alternative esoteric organizations were birthed, both in Germany and Austria. By the time World War I had started in 1914, German occultism and mysticism had taken on a number of forms; from the volkisch mysticism of Guido von List to Rudolf Steiner’s Anthroposophical Society, from “irregular” Masonic and Rosicrucian lodges to Theozoology and the Order of the New Templars. It could be said that German-central Europe was experiencing an occult renaissance of sorts, and each of these movements (and others not listed) played a part in creating an undercurrent of Germanic spiritual adventurism. Moreover, many of these foundational groups viewed Jews as being a contaminant in the continued unfolding of an Aryan evolutionary line – thinking that would later find a political foothold in National Socialism.

With the defeat of Germany in World War I, a cultural and social vacuum precipitated an even greater interest in Germanic mysticism, alternative pagan histories, and occultism. Riding this wave, Rudolf J. Gorsleben kick-started a radical Aryan movement that centered on runes and occultism, creating “an original racist mystery-religion which illuminated the priceless magical heritage of the Aryans and justified their spiritual and political world-supremacy” [7].

The ideas of Karl Maria Wiligut also found root during this time. Wiligut, a proclaimed German sage with alleged clairvoyant skills, held to a blend of racist “Ario-Christianity” and Teutonic paganism. Later changing his name to Karl Maria Weisthor, Wiligut’s high-point contribution to the Third Reich was his involvement in the Wawelsburg project – the complete remodeling of a castle near Paderborn into an SS-order officer’s college and pan-Germanic SS spiritual center, complete with cult-styled pagan ceremonies and rituals [more on the SS order to follow].

And finally, during the years between the Great War and World War II, an aristocrat named Rudolf von Sebottendorff organized the Thule Society. Drawing from some of e arlier Germanic mythologies and esoteric groups, such as the Germanenorden – “an anti-Semitic group organized like a secret quasi-masonic lodge” [8] – the Thule Society became a haven for nationalistic leanings in light of Germany’s loss in the Great War.

Thule saw some interesting future Nazi figures pass through its lodge doors: Alfred Rosenberg – the eventual Reich Minister for the Eastern Occupied Territories, Dietrich Eckart – a key early member of the Nazi Party and editor of the Völkischer Beobachter [the Nazi Party newspaper], Rudolf Hess – the eventual Deputy of the Fuehrer [9], and Ernst Rohm – who became the Reichsminister of the SA [10].

The symbol of the Thule Society was a circular swastika mounted atop a double-edge dagger.

The Third Reich

Adolf Hitler himself had come into contact with some of these arcane doctrines and teachings, and was no doubt influenced by them to a certain extent, particularly from Thule interests and the mystical inclinations of Guido von List – a leading figure in German esoteric and Aryan blood-and-race ideologies [11]. Mein Kampf, Hitler’s major work, indirectly linked the meaning of the swastika with the Aryan racial mythologies of List:
“As National Socialists, we see our program in our flag. In red we see the social ideal of the movement, in white the nationalistic idea, in the swastika the mission of the struggle for the victory of the Aryan man, and, by the same token, the victory of the idea of creative work, which as such always has been and always will be anti-Semitic” [12].
But of all the major Nazi Party leaders, Heinrich Himmler – head of the SS; seemed most inclined towards mystical interpretations. The SS, short for Schutzstaffel, was originally an inner guard for the Nazi leadership but, as the regime and its military components evolved, the SS took on multi-task military functions [13].

Historian Marc Rikmenspoel, in his encyclopedic work on the SS, explains that “The official religious doctrine of the Nazi Party and the SS was a sort of deism, an undefined belief in God separate from any organized religion. The SS, in particular, encouraged the belief in Nordic paganism, and urged its members to abandon any Christian denomination” [14].

Certainly a large part of this mystical orientation came from Himmler’s close association with Karl Wiligut. Author and Nazi historian Nocholas Goodrick-Clarke explains,
“By virtue of his [Wiligut] alleged possession of ancestral memory and an inspired representation of archaic Germanic traditions, he became the favoured mentor of Reichsfuhrer-SS Heinrich Himmler on mythological subjects and was given an official assignment for prehistorical research in the SS between 1933 and 1939” [15].
Adding to this, Goodrick-Clarke writes,
“Among the top leaders of the Third Reich, Himmler appears the most ambiguous personality, motivated simultaneously by a capacity for rational planning and by unreal fantasies. His zeal for order, punctuality, and administrative detail, and the pedantic impression of an ‘intelligent primary school teacher,’ were seemingly belied by his enthusiasm for the utopian, the romantic and even the occult. It was Himmler’s idealistic imagination which led to a visionary conception of the SS and its future role: his black-uniformed troops would pro vide both the bloodstock of the future Aryan master-race and the ideological elite of an ever-expanding Greater Germanic Reich” [16].

Keep in mind, Himmler was the organizer of the concentration camp system, and specific units within his SS were tasked with carrying out the “Final Solution” against the European Jews.

From the employment of runes to the celebration of the swastika sun symbol, from the racially motivated mystical philosophies of an Aryan blood-line to the esoteric teachings of a pagan-Germanic pre-history, the “holy conviction” of the National Socialist German Worker’s Party – a blend of occultism and racism – culminated in one of the worst atrocities in human history.

Knowing that the Nazi’s ideology was fixated on arcane beliefs, the question of German Freemasonry, Rosicrucian orders, and even pan-Germanic mystical associations needs to be addressed. Understand, Hitler and his regime pursued these groups with a bent towards their destruction; even historically-linked Germanic esoteric organizations that had helped establish the philosophical ideals of the Reich were targeted. Given the fact that the Nazi Party was the political expression of various arcane doctrines, some critics have suggested that this purging throws doubt on the esoteric foundation for Nazism.

On the eve of World War II, Hermann Rauschning, a former advisor to Hitler and president of the Danzig Senate, attempted to warn the world of Nazism’s ultimate aim by publishing his book, The Revolution of Nihilism: Warning to the West. Commenting on Freemasonry and other secretive societies in Germany, and their relationship to National Socialism, Rauschning wrote,
“If we try to unders tand what it is that tempts Hitler again and again to dwell on Freemasonry, on the Jesuits, or on the Teutonic Order, we come close to the essential secret of the National Socialist elite, the ‘mystery,’ as the Teutonic Order called it, the esoteric doctrine confined to the brethren who were called to initiation. It was the piecemeal character of their initiation into secret aims, the aims and methods of a ruling class, by stages of discipline, enlightenment, liberation, that set the eyes of National Socialism in envious rivalry on such organizations as Freemasonry” [17].
Simply put, all rivalries must be removed – no matter how close the historical associations may be, such as was the case, ultimately, with Theosophy.

So why is it important to understand all this complex and obscure Nazi esoteric history?

First, the simple fact is that as a movement Nazism re-forged the entire structure of Europe, and continues to have lasting social repercussions (politically and culturally, today's European Union was birthed from the ashes of World War II and the Nazi's impact on European life). This fact alone demands that we examine its deeper roots.

Secondly, and of immense importance, is the fact that this movement’s historical philosophies were grounded in the same ideologies that today comprise the New Age Movement. Remember Blavatsky’s Theosophy and its early role in the development of Germanic mysticism? Consider this substantial statement from Cherry Gilchrist, author of Theosophy: The Wisdom of the Ages,

“Though its origins lie in the nineteenth century, the theosophical perspective has much in common with that of the New Age, and, it can fairly be said, it is the impetus of Theosophy that has enabled the whole New Age movement to come into being” [18].


Bloody Utopian Dreams, Part 3
The Politics and Religion of Population Control

By Carl Teichrib - July 2005
 
Author's Note: While population agenda themes interlink with a myriad of issues, the purpose of this article isn't to independently examine each area of impact. Instead, it follows an interlocking theme: a combination of environmentalism (and it's politics) and Earth-based spirituality - the utopian ideal of politics, religion, and a lot less people.


"Clearly, it is time for a global effort to create everywhere on earth the conditions conducive to stabilizing population."
- Al Gore, Earth in the Balance. [1]

"Halting population growth is an urgent task. But what means are justifiable?"
- The Gaia Peace Atlas. [2]

"There have been 'triage' proposals that would condemn whole nations to death through some species of global 'benign neglect.' There have been schemes for coercing people to curtail their fertility, by physical and legal means that are ominously left unspecified. Now we are told that we must curtail rather than extend our efforts to feed the hungry peoples of the world. Where will it end."
- Barry Commoner, Making Peace with the Planet. [3]

The first time I ever laid eyes on America's Stonehenge was late one spring evening. Caught in the shadow-play of the car's headlights, this remarkable monument appeared even more surreal then I expected. The following morning, after lodging in Elberton Georgia, I returned to this complex modern-day megalith for a closer look.

The Georgia Guidestones, a massive granite edifice planted in the Georgia countryside, contains a list of ten new commandments for Earth's citizens. The first commandment, and the one which concerns this article, simply states; "Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature."

This population control commandment reminded me of what I had witnessed back in 1997 while attending the Global Citizenship 2000 Youth Congress. Held in Vancouver, BC, the purpose of this event was to incite national changes to the Canadian educational system; specifically, to instill Earth-centric values through the adoption of Robert Muller's World Core Curriculum - a philosophy of education that incorporates global citizenship and pantheistic concepts. [4]

Muller, a grandfatherly figure with decades of United Nations experience, gave an emotionally charged speech which strongly emphasized a global population control agenda. In a dialogue between himself and Mother Earth (played by himself!), Muller, as the Earth, challenged the participants towards a new way of thinking,

"What are you doing to me? You have multiplied the number of beings on this planet from 2.5 billion in 1952 to 5.8 billion today. How could you do this to me? This big population explosion all around the world, and I, the Earth, am supposed to feed them. Why did you do this to me?...You are killing me!" [5]

To the attending youth and educators, Muller boasted that the United Nations had, as a result of warnings to the world, "prevented the birth of 2 billion, 200 million people." Furthermore, he encouraged the Congress to "Try to convince your people to reduce the number of children. This is one of the biggest problems we have on this planet."[6]

Clearly, the heart-and-soul of Muller's population agenda revolved around a dual theme of environmental degradation and a greater spiritual Earth-connection,
"...behave correctly towards the Earth...You are not children of Canada, you are really living units of the cosmos because the Earth is a cosmic phenomena... we are all cosmic units. This is why religions tell you, you are divine. We are divine energy... it is in your hands whether evolution on this planet continues or not." [7]
Not surprisingly, this interlocking three-way theme -- population, environment, and spirituality -- can be found in the literature of one of the most influential environmental policy organizations in the world, the International Institute for Sustainable Development.

In a 1995 text published by the IISD titled Empowerment For Sustainable Development, we find that population management, sustainable development, and religious values are drawn together in a common theme,
"The concept [of sustainable development] is also generally viewed as requiring major societal changes through radical or incremental restructuring of institutions and management approaches. For example, a paradigm shift is envisaged towards a decentralized society characterized by small-scale, labour-intensive enterprises, local autonomy, diversity of cultures and thinning out of population over landscape. A more forceful and dynamic role for religious and cultural groups to advocate principles of environmental protection has been urged." [8]

Management: this is the operational point of planned population shifts ("thinning out of population" certainly demonstrates this concept). And a major component of this management process towards environmental/population mind-change is education. After all, by altering the minds of the next generation, long-term target goals are advanced pupil-by-pupil.

Empowerment For Sustainable Development notes,
"Education has been advanced as significant in bringing about changes in attitudes, behaviour, beliefs, and values...In order to redirect behaviour and values towards institutional change for sustainable development there is a need to investigate strategic options in relation to educational philosophies, scope for propagation and adoption, and groups most likely to be susceptible to change."[9]

Consider the First National Environmental Teach-In, which was held on April 22, 1970, and was the event that sparked today's annual Earth Day celebrations. As an aid to this American-wide transformative event, a special book was prepared to equip teachers and students in their quest to live peacefully with the Earth. The follow quotes, some quite lengthy, illustrates this hoped-for managed change in "attitudes, behaviour, beliefs, and values" - and their anticipated impact on population issues. Remember, this text, titled The Environmental Handbook, was geared towards high school students [my own high school used this as a textbook for many years].
"What we do about ecology depends on our ideas of the man-nature relationship. More science and more technology are not going to get us out of the present ecologic crisis until we find a new religion, or rethink our old one." [10]

"Both our present science and our present technology are so tinctured with orthodox Christian arrogance toward nature that no solution for our ecologic crisis can be expected from them alone. Since the roots of our trouble are so largely religious, the remedy must also be essentially religious, whether we call it that or not. We must rethink and refeel our nature and destiny." [11]

"In a welfare state, how shall we deal with the family, the religion, the race, or the class (or indeed any distinguishable and cohesive group) that adopts overbreeding as a policy to secure its own aggrandizement? To couple the concept of freedom to breed with the belief that everyone born has an equal right to the commons is to lock the world into a tragic course of action." [12]

"No technical solution can rescue us from the misery of overpopulation. Freedom to breed will bring ruin to all...The only way we can preserve and nurture other and more precious freedoms is by relinquishing the freedom to breed, and that very soon...it is the role of education to reveal to all the necessity of abandoning the freedom to breed." [13]

"A prerequisite to any lasting solution to environmental pollution is a zero growth rate - the birth rate equalling the death rate...The essential cause of environmental pollution is over-population, combined with an excessive population growth rate; other antipollution measures can be used temporarily, but so long as the central problem is not solved, on can expect no lasting success." [14]

In order to hammer home these population concerns and affect lasting world change, The Environmental Handbook proposed that educators should embed population issues into core subject areas:

"Biology - Compare elimination of predation and consequent overpopulation of animal species (e.g. deer) with health advances followed by overpopulation of human species...Discuss methods of contraception.
Economics - Investigate key to affluence...Compare rates of population growth. Growth of various countries with rate of GNP growth; were former exceeds latter, living standards declines.
English - Read (perhaps as outside reading, with book reviews given in class) Malthus [author's note: Robert T. Malthus is the father of the science of population control, he lived from 1766 to 1834], Ehrlich's Population Bomb... any of the Sierra Club's Wilderness Conference books.
History (U.S.) - Consider changing attitudes toward birth control...
History (World) - Trace population growth in various areas of the world...
Mathematics - ...Calculate some of the horrors that will take place if breeding isn't slowed...
Psychology - Study (perhaps experiment with) effects of overcrowding..." [15, underlining added]

So how do we deal with the "pollution" problem of too many people? On page 291 of The Environmental Handbook, it suggests that instead of giving gifts at Christmas, you could send money to population control organizations such as Zero Population Growth and Planned Parenthood/World Population.

Other options were given in a section titled "Suggestions Toward an Ecological Platform,"
"Stabilizing the U.S. population should be declared a national policy. Immediate steps should be taken to:

1. Legalize voluntary abortion and sterilization and provide these services free.
2. Remove all restrictions on the provisions of birth control information and devices; provide these services free to all, including minors.
3. Make sex education available to all appropriate levels, stressing birth control practices and the need to stabilize the population.
4. Launch a government-sponsored campaign for population control in the media...
5. Offer annual bonuses for couples remaining childless and eliminate tax deductions for more than two children.

Control of world population growth is simply a matter of survival of the human race. Federal priorities must be made to reflect this fact. We propose:

1. Massive federal aid to supply birth control information, planning and materials to all countries that will accept it.
2. Foreign aid only to countries with major programs to curb population growth.
3. Increased research on birth control methods and on attitudes toward limiting births." [16]

Traditional family life, too, was targeted as a population concern. "Explore other social structures and marriage forms, such as group marriage and polyandrous marriage...Share the pleasure of raising children widely, so that all need not directly reproduce..." [17]

This is societal management at its highest, and religion comes directly into play. According to The Environmental Handbook, "...nothing short of total transformation will do much good." So with that in mind, a list was given of appropriate religions, spiritual traditions, and philosophies,
"Let these be encouraged: Gnostics, hip Marxists, Teilhard de Chardin, Catholics, Druids, Taoists, Biologist [author's note: biologists may have been listed because of the evolutionary principles underpinning much of modern day biological science], Witches, Shamans, Bushmen, American Indians, Polynesians, Anarchists, Alchemists...the list is long. All primitive cultures, all communal and ashram movements." [18]
As the foundation for today's Earth Day events, the 1970 Environmental Handbook provided a virtual roadmap for societal transformation. Since then, our educational system, sciences, and political circles have been inundated with population change agendas - be they in the guise of environmentalism, alleviating world poverty, or ensuring food security. [19]

Climate change, too, is linked into population issues. Noted environmental science writer Jonathan Weiner explains,
"If our numbers continue to spiral upward, so will greenhouse gases, and so will the temperature of the planet...If we cannot manage our impact on the planet now, how would we do so if there were many more of us? Can we defuse the Change Bomb while human numbers explode? Can we cut our carbon production in half while doubling the size of the human sphere?

"Think of the U.S., which has already seen the most fantastic population explosion in human history, from 18 million in 1750 to 250 million today, an increase of 3,500 percent. The U.S. population will reach almost 300 million in the next one hundred years. And at present rates, of course, each citizen is shoveling about five tons of carbon into the air...300 million people consuming resources as fast as Americans do today would produce about 1.5 billion tons of carbon per annum. That is to say, in one hundred years, the United States alone would be producing more than half of the whole world's annual quota of greenhouse gas. Something has to give; the planet cannot afford that many American consumers." [20]
And herein lies an ironic dialectic rub: Historically, the loudest and most powerful voices in favor of population control have been Western oriented. Typically under this scenario, population control promoters have cited poverty alleviation, disease eradication, and even the safeguarding of America's economy and national security [21] as reasons to restrict Third World population growth. Now, however, as the above quote by Jonathan Weiner illustrates, much of the global population debate has shifted towards lessening populations in the advanced countries.

The reason for this turn around is that Western developed countries (also known as the "global north") are viewed as the major consumer of natural resources. According to the Treaty on Consumption and Lifestyle, an alternative document penned by non-governmental organizations at the 1992 United Nations Earth Summit, the global north shoulders the brunt of the responsibility when it comes to the population agenda.
"While overall population growth is a danger to the health of the planet, it must be recognized that population growth in the North, due to extremely high levels of per capita consumption, is a far greater immediate environmental threat than population growth in the South. Meeting basic needs is a prerequisite for stabilizing population growth." [22]
Certainly Western and developed nations use the largest percentage of the world's resources, but they are also the chief extractor and refiner of natural commodities - and subsequently a significant supplier of food sources and raw energy the world over. [23]

But the Treaty on Consumption and Lifestyle points to something more; blaming the global north, this NGO treaty demands that the north make reparations to the global south through the redistribution of wealth and land, and by creating an international environmental management regime flanked with a radically altered global-socialist economic structure. Of course, this alternative treaty makes the point that central to these societal changes is the revamping of humanity's values, particularly as it relates to spirituality and nature. [24]

Regardless of what the reason is for reducing the world's population, the formation of a new global spirituality and the re-forging of the world's political/economic system occupies a central place in the agenda. [25] And we've been witnessing this political-religious blend take shape for decades - from the First National Environmental Teach-In to the scores of agendas and documents from the United Nations, [26] from the reports of the Club of Rome [27] to the incessant call of the neo-pagan Green/Gaia movement. [28] Sometimes, however, while elaborating on the reasons for global control, proselytizers present ideas that can only be described as "apocalyptic."

Obviously, the ability to manage the world's population requires the development of an integrated world system. Whether you call it "planetary management," world federalism, or global governance, it all points to the same end: world government. Noting this necessary interconnection, Bertrand Russell, one of last century's most recognized philosophers, wholeheartedly embraced mass depopulation as an indispensable component for securing a more unified world.
"I do not pretend that birth control is the only way in which population can be kept from increasing. There are others, which, one must suppose, opponents of birth control would prefer. War, as I remarked a moment ago, has hitherto been disappointing in this respect, but perhaps bacteriological war may prove more effective. If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full. There would be nothing in this to offend the consciences of the devout or to restrain the ambitions of nationalists. The state of affairs might be somewhat unpleasant, but what of this? Really high-minded people are indifferent to happiness, especially other people's.

"...unless there is a world government which secures universal birth control, there must from time to time be great wars, in which the penalty of defeat is widespread death by starvation...

"...The need for a world government, if the population problem is to be solved in any humane manner, is completely evident on Darwinian principles." [29]
As menacing as Russell's model appears, it resonates with a certain segment of the population control community. In 1968, Paul Ehrlich wrote that "We must rapidly bring the world population under control, reducing the growth rate to zero or making it go negative." [30] His suggestions seem tame by comparison to Russell's ideas, but "making" a population "go negative" carries with it some stark connotations.

Garrett Hardin, a campaigner of lifeboat-styled population management, [31] had this to say; "How can we help a foreign country to escape overpopulation? Clearly the worst thing we can do is send food.... Atomic bombs would be kinder..." [32]

Garrett too, admits that a global sovereign which oversees human reproduction is the only real solution. [33] However, Garrett attests that the current practical answer is that individual nations, each lifeboats of sorts, experiment with and actively pursue various population management programs at the local level. [34] In this system of planetary trial and error, nations that succeed in controlling their populations can be emulated by other countries.

Maybe Bertrand Russell was right; "Really high-minded people are indifferent to happiness, especially other people's."

And the ultimate number of people? Garrett suggests that "we might be able to settle on a world population of up to 100 million." [35] The Environmental Handbook makes this suggestion,
"Situation. There are now too many human beings, and the problem is growing rapidly worse. It is potentially disastrous not only for the human race but for most other life forms. Goal. The goal would be half of the present world population, or less." [36] [italics in original]
Cutting the world's numbers in half, or dropping the optimal level to 100 million - or 500 million as in the case of the Georgia Guidestones - is not "population control," it's genocide.

In 1998 I was a subscriber to the Progressive Population Network listserver, an online community of environmentalists and population control advocates. One posting, a short note written by a lady named Joan, [37] offered a glimpse into this "exterminationist" version of population control,
"Humans had to thin a heard of deer by shooting them because the natural mechanisms (probably wolves) for keeping the deer population in check had been disrupted. So instead of shooting humans to 'thin' us, lets find the natural mechanisms for keeping human populations in check. Otherwise people will just keep breeding and we'll just have to keep shooting them. And that's just too icky for me.

Since there is no equivalent to wolves for humans, one idea would be to just stop providing food and medicine to people who out-breed their habitat. Let them make the choice between starving or limiting their procreation. People need to see more clearly the connection between their reproductive habits and the destruction of the environment." [38]
From the Georgia Guidestones to the roots of our Earth Day celebrations, from the nation's classrooms to the pundits of global religious change, it is evident that many of our society's "people shapers" [39] wish to re-forge the world in the image of their bloody utopian dreams.

Flattery and the Big Lie

By Carl Teichrib - February 2005
Please visit his website at www.forcingchange.org


We've all heard the old saying, "flattery will get you nowhere." Sometimes I wonder; did the first person who made this statement do it in jest? For you see, flattery works, and it works remarkably well. More than that, in a peculiar sort of way, flattery is connected to the Big Lie.
 
From a strictly marketing perspective, flattery has to be one of the most overused techniques in the arsenal of the advertising industry. "You deserve it!" intones the radio and television ads. Really? You think so? In the course of an average day, how many times do you hear, see, or read an advertisement that caters to this line of thinking? It's a subtle yet flirtatious psychological bomb-shell, and it gets results.
 
On a personal level the use of flattery is all too evident. People love to be praised, held in high-esteem, and have their egos stroked. Face it, we've all succumbed to this temptation at one time or another. But in the hands of someone who knows how to use this character flaw, its an open door for manipulation.
 
Anton LaVey, author of The Satanic Bible and founder of the Church of Satan, openly mocked man's gullibility through the vice of flattery in his book, Satan Speaks.
"I would have made a good PR man, because my most flagrant lies are to other people, about themselves. If the Devil is a flatterer, I do my job well...

"I am the worst kind of rascal, for I flatter up like nobody's business. I am an unwilling, habitual practitioner of what Gypsies call 'lavengro.' It is the art of telling people what they most want to hear, and the fortune teller's stock and trade. A therapist would call it 'supportive' and note that it reinforces another's self-esteem. The lower one's self-esteem, the more valuable and effective it is.

"Oh, how I lie! If a fellow be a churlish lout, I tell him how sensitive and discriminating he is. If a girl is so ugly that she must sneak up on a glass of water, I allude to her great beauty. If one's performance is mediocre at best, I applaud his great talent. I praise the skinflint on his generosity and the hysteric on his levelheaded judiciousness. And it makes them all feel good." (Satan Speaks, pp.101-102)
While LaVey's admission is couched in a somewhat comical approach, the use of flattery in terms of mind manipulation is anything but humorous. In the May-June 1997 issue of Military Review, an article titled "The Age of the New Persuaders" detailed the geopolitical uses of persuasion techniques. Whether it's called "psychological operations" or "perception management," the ultimate aim is to modify the thinking of the intended target by influencing "emotions, motives, and objective reasoning."
 
Speaking specifically of psychological tools, the author of the Military Review article, Timothy Thomas, explained that this type of mind-game exploitation seeks to turn "personality weaknesses to one's advantage." And flattery, as a manipulation tool, was recognized as an effective technique. According to Thomas, "One can use an object's vanity and conceit to advantage. This can be done by flattery..."
 
The New Age Movement too uses a form of flattery as a tool for mind manipulation. Unlike the typically understood idea of flattery - which usually emphasizes someone's outer qualities, talents, or expertise - this particular type of flattery reaches deep within the soul and works to rearrange the foundational basis of reality.
"You are God...you are a god in the making" - the Big Lie of Genesis, where the Serpent approaches Eve and offers her the chance to "be as gods" (3:5, KJV) - becomes the ultimate form of subtle flattery manipulation within the teachings of the New Age Movement.
 
Consider the following statements as found in the World Core Curriculum, a New Age philosophy of education produced by long-time United Nations official Robert Muller,
- "...as it is vividly described in the story of the Tree of Knowledge, having decided to become like God through knowledge and our attempt to understand the heavens and the Earth, we have also become masters in deciding between good and evil..."

- "...we were always meant to be: universal, total beings. The time for this vast synthesis, for a new encyclopedia of all our knowledge and the formulation of the agenda for our cosmic future, has struck. It is becoming increasingly clear that in this vast evolutionary quantum change the individual remains the alpha and the omega of all our efforts...It is to make each child feel like a king or queen in the universe, an expanded being aggrandized by the vastness of our knowledge. It is to make each human being feel proud to be a member of a transformed species."
This is flattery at its highest: you are the master in deciding good and evil...you are the alpha and omega...you are royalty - an aggrandized member of a transformed species.
 
In the spring of 1997, Muller was the keynote speaker at the Global Citizenship 2000 Youth Congress, a meeting of students, teachers, and education officials from across Vancouver and the lower mainland of British Columbia. The purpose of this event was to enlarge the World Core Curriculum idea and thrust it into the framework of Canadian public education. As Muller explained to the gathering,
"You are not children of Canada, you are really living units of the cosmos because the Earth is a cosmic phenomena...we are all cosmic units. This is why religions tell you, you are divine. We are divine energy..."
His words struck a visible cord, and the atmosphere was charged with the excitement of social transformation (see Hope For The World Update, Fall 1997, for a first-hand report on this event).

J.D. Buck, a mystic and author of repute within esoteric circles, eagerly shared this same occult philosophy in his 1925 work, Mystic Masonry. "It is far more important that men should strive to become Christs than that they should believe that Jesus was Christ...Jesus is no less Divine because all men may reach the same Divine perfection" (p.62).

Early leaders in what has become known today as the New Age Movement, individuals such as Madame Blavatsky, Annie Besant and Alice Bailey, delved heavily into this realm of thought. And today's New Age writers repeat this spiritual flattery. Consider the words of John Davis and Naomi Rice, "It is time to reveal our divine glory, summon our courage, and demonstrate our wisdom. It is not only necessary to worship the Christ, WE MUST BECOME THE VERY CHRIST (capitals in original - Messiah and the Second Coming, p.69.)

The flattery continues: not only are you a god in the making, but your salvation depends on yourself. As Muller's curriculum states, you are the "alpha and omega" - that's how important you are. Salvation, the New Age teaches, is a process that you hold within you.

Anton LaVey candidly encouraged the spiritual adventurer to proclaim, "Say unto thine own heart, 'I am my own redeemer'." (The Satanic Bible, p.33). Blavatsky wrote that "mankind will become freed from its false gods, and find itself finally - SELF-REDEEMED." (capitals and italics in original - The Secret Doctrine, vol. II, p.420). And Henry C. Clausen, while holding the title of Sovereign Grand Commander of the Supreme Council 33° of Scottish Rite Freemasonry, wrote that "We must find the answers ourselves. The path to personal enlightenment is introspective." (Emergence of the Mystical, p.62).

And just in case you didn't catch the insinuating flattery found within Clausen's statement, he gives it to his fellow Masons in a more neatly wrapped package; "Your are a towering example of man's ability to burst out of an animalistic state and go forth bravely upon the road toward freedom and enlightened living, ascending ever upward onto a higher spiritual plane" (p.67).

Whoever said that "flattery will get you nowhere" didn't know what he was talking about. Flattery as a religious mind-manipulative technique works remarkably well. Droves of men and women are rushing to embrace the esoteric doctrines of the New Age Movement, complete with its flattering messages of self-deification, self-redemption, and self-enlightenment.

But why would humanity embrace this obvious grand illusion of self-deification? After all, even a casual observation of human nature - with all its corruption, evil-intent, and degradation - completely blows the idea of self-deification out of the water.

Anton LaVey's earlier statement gives us a clue; "…it makes them all feel good."

William Glasser, an internationally known psychiatrist who's work advanced an idea called "control theory," reinforced this concept of "feeling good" in his book Stations of the Mind,

"To control people successfully we have to guess what it is they desire (what their reference levels are) or in general what gives them pleasure (what causes them pain). Then, well aware of the ancient force of reward and punishment, all a good controller or operant conditioner has to do is to fine-tune his control so that it focuses on specifics. What causes the most pain or the most pleasure with the least effort to me? To be most effective, however, a good controller must discover how to apply these forces in such a way that does not cause conflict, that makes the controlled person happy to be controlled." (p.144).

LaVey's "makes them feel good" statement, and Glasser's idea of making the controlled person "happy to be controlled" follows an age-old concept that is found in the Bible; that sin produces pleasures - it makes you feel good - even if it is only for a short time (Hebrews 11:25). But the Bible also tells you something that this "controlled pleasure" line of thinking does not: that in the end, this "feel good...happy to be controlled" condition has its conclusion in pain, heartache, and death.

All of this brings us around to an interesting observation. Humanity, with its ears tickled by the flattery of the Big Lie, would rather choose to follow an illogical philosophy of self-godhood with its encumbered pride, than humbly face the reality that we cannot redeem ourselves.

Testing the Genuineness of our Faith
Pastor Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892)

"In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ." 1 Peter1:6-7

 
Untested faith may be true faith, but it is sure to be small faith, and it is likely to remain little as long as it is without trials. Faith never prospers so well as when all things are against her: Tempests are her trainers, and bolts of lightning are her illuminators.

When a calm reigns on the sea, spread the sails as you will, the ship does not move to its harbor; for on a slumbering ocean the keel sleeps too. Let the winds rush and howl, and let the waters lift themselves, though the vessel may rock and her deck may be washed with waves and her mast may creak under the pressure of the full and swelling sail, it is then that she makes headway toward her desired haven.

No flowers are as lovely a blue as those that grow at the foot of the frozen glacier; no stars gleam as brightly as those that glisten in the midnight sky; no water tastes as sweet as that which springs up in the desert sand; and no faith is so precious as that which lives and triumphs in adversity.

Tested faith brings experience. You could not have believed your own weakness if you had not been compelled to pass through the rivers; and you would never have known God’s strength if you had not been supported
in the flood. Faith increases in quality, assurance, and intensity the more it is exercised with tribulation. Faith is precious, and its trial is precious too.

Do not let this, however, discourage those who are young in faith. You will have trials enough without seeking them: The full portion will be measured out to you in due course.

Meanwhile, if you cannot yet claim the result of long experience, thank God for what grace you have; praise Him for that degree of holy confidence you have now attained: Walk according to that rule, and you will still have more and more of the blessing of God, until your faith will remove mountains and conquer impossibilities.

An Excerpt from:

The Loneliness of the Christian

by A. W. Tozer

The loneliness of the Christian results from his walk with God in an ungodly world, a walk that must often take him away from the fellowship of good Christians as well as from that of the unregenerate world. His God-given instincts cry out for companionship with others of his kind, others who can understand his longings, his aspirations, his absorption in the love of Christ; and because within his circle of friends there are so few who share his inner experiences he is forced to walk alone.

The unsatisfied longings of the prophets for human understanding caused them to cry out in their complaint, and even our Lord Himself suffered in the same way.

The man [or woman] who has passed on into the divine Presence in actual inner experience will not find many who understand him. He finds few who care to talk about that which is the supreme object of his interest, so he is often silent and preoccupied in the midst of noisy religious shoptalk. For this he earns the reputation of being dull and over-serious, so he is avoided and the gulf between him and society widens.

He searches for friends upon whose garments he can detect the smell of myrrh and aloes and cassia out of the ivory palaces, and finding few or none he, like Mary of old, keeps these things in his heart.

It is this very loneliness that throws him back upon God. His inability to find human companionship drives him to seek in God what he can find nowhere else."

Homeland Security and the Transformation of America

by Berit Kjos
February 2003  (Updated October 2009)

"SEC. 605. (a) There is hereby created and established a permanent police force, to be known as the `United States Secret Service Uniformed Division'. Subject to the supervision of the Secretary of Homeland Security, the United States Secret Service Uniformed Division shall perform such duties as the Director, United States Secret Service, may prescribe.... Under the direction of the Director of the Secret Service, members of the United States Secret Service Uniformed Division are authorized to--...make arrests without warrant for any offense against the United States committed in their presence..." USA Patriot Improvement and Reauthorizaton Act of 2005
 
"The President has proposed the most significant transformation of the U.S. government in over a half-century by consolidating the current confusing patchwork of government activities into a single entity--the Department of Homeland Security...." FEMA Region VI
 
"The President calls on each governor to establish a single Homeland Security Task Force for the state, to serve as his or her primary coordinating body with the federal government." Organizing for a Secure Homeland, White House[1]
 
"Every few hundred years in Western history there occurs a sharp transformation. . . . We are currently living through just such a transformation. It is creating the post-capitalist society." Peter F. Drucker, Post-Capitalist Society.[2]
 
Few would deny that America faces a major crisis. But the greatest threat to freedom may be a veiled government "solution" rather than the obvious threat of terror.  Yes, international terrorism and weapons of mass destruction call for a wise and strong response, but our new Department of Homeland Security brings radical changes that threaten the very foundations of our nation.
 
Some of the changes are structural; they deal with the transformation of the republic itself. Others are designed to draw all Americans -- young and old from coast to coast -- into community consensus groups that would manipulate minds, change values, build a collective world view, and promote a form of solidarity that clashes with all the wise warnings of our founding fathers.
 
Looming over those revolutionary changes stands an inter-governmental surveillance network symbolized by the all-seeing eye in the pyramid.  This Masonic symbol, whose roving eye covers the planet with its probing and penetrating rays, first appeared on a defense department website featuring TIA (Total Information Awareness). It must have raised some concern, since the image disappeared a few months later. See Surveillance
 
Some of these changes were planned decades long ago. [See Chronology of the NEA] More recently, former president Clinton tried to persuade Congress to pass similar anti-terrorism measures after the bombing of the Oklahoma federal building. But he failed. Americans were not yet ready to relinquish their rights to freedom and privacy. Now, thanks to a greater crisis, the planned laws, intrusive policies, high tech surveillance and vast networks have been put in place. What does it all mean to ordinary citizens like you and me?
Three Problems with Homeland Security

On November 19, 2002, President Bush celebrated the passage of the Homeland Security Act with these words,
"The United States Congress has taken an historic and bold step forward to protect the American people by passing legislation to create the Department of Homeland Security. This landmark legislation, the most extensive reorganization of the Federal Government since the 1940s, will help our Nation meet the emerging threats of terrorism in the 21st Century."[3]

Do you wonder what this "most extensive reorganization" entails?  I did. And after a week of perusing the White House and Homeland Security websites, I see that Al Gore's promise to "reinvent government" is nearing fulfillment. Fueled by today's anxious atmosphere, the former administration's plan to weaken the old "checks and balances" has been speeding ahead with relatively little public opposition. This massive project bears three distinct marks. It includes -

An interconnected government management system: a global framework of networks and partnerships that supposedly operate by consensus.
A mind-changing process: the facilitated group dialogue first used in the USSR to establish a new public consciousness that reflects collective ideals.
Standards and Assessments that hold all sectors of society accountable to top-down polices and an ultimate goal: what human resources must be, do and believe in order to build a world free from conflict and terror. The promise of "local control" means little when the end results ("outcomes") are measured and rewarded at the top.

1. The interconnected systems
Remember the words of the 10th Amendment: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively...."
 
A White House document titled, "The National Strategy for Homeland Security," admits that "American democracy is rooted in the precepts of federalism -- a system of government in which our state governments share power with federal institutions."[1]  But this "strategy" ignores the wise restrictions placed on the federal government. Ponder this statement:
"The Administration's approach to homeland security is based on the principles of shared responsibility and partnership with the Congress, state and local governments, the private sector, and the American people.... The federal government will employ performance measures--and encourage the same for state and local governments--to evaluate the effectiveness of each homeland security program."[4]
Guess who would be the controlling partner? It would not be the state! In a government partnership between unequal members, the one who sets the standards, defines the terms, and pulls the purse-strings will always rule. Through its calculated distribution of much-needed government grants, the federal government holds all its partners accountable to its top-down[5]  agenda.

Those partners include a vast network of local, state and national government systems, organizations, agencies and offices. This interlocking web also includes all kinds of private entities and churches. In fact, every part of society has been assigned a place in this massive web. And -- as our government joins hands with corporations, private agencies, "civil society" and faith-based organizations around the world -- we may soon be trapped within the politically correct boundaries of the "common values" and "community oneness" so often touted by former President Clinton and Mikhail Gorbachev.

Clinton's second executive order on Federalism set the stage. It redesigned and redefined the relationship between states and the White House. Neither Congress nor the Bush administration chose to challenge it.

But, as you will see, the federal power grab goes far beyond the 10th Amendment and the original "separation of powers." In the end, we may well see Clinton's vision of government controlled community oneness fulfilled. But by the time the manipulated masses have tuned their minds to the collective heart beat of the new "greater whole", the personal freedom we have treasured may be history. [See Capacity Building]

2. The mind-changing consensus process
Since the dialectic process has been explained repeatedly on our website, I will simply refer you to the best expose we have: "An analysis of Community Oriented Policing (COPs)" by San Diego Detective Phil Worts. He quotes from a Justice Department brochure which defines the department's federally funded COPS program -- now linked to Homeland Security:[6]

COMMUNITY POLICING - WHAT IS IT?

Shift in philosophy about police duties vs. community responsibilities to a team concept of Total Quality Management [TQM] of the community.  Re-identifying the police role as a facilitator in the community.
Leaders of the community (law enforcement, government, business, education, health, civic, non-profit, medical, religious, etc.) collaborating to identify problems in the community, what the significant impact on people will be, and suggesting solutions to those problems.

Identifying common ground, where all factions of a community can work together for the COMMON GOOD of the community in a broader problem-solving approach.  Forming a partnership between police and the rest of the community where each is accountable to each other and the community as whole.  (Emphasis added by author)

In other words, explains Mr. Worts, we are seeing a "transformation from a constitutionally empowered local police force performing their duty to keep the peace to that of a change agent working within the community to affect a Marxist paradigm shift."  He continues,

"Pay close attention to what the influential German Marxist Georg Lukacs had to say about who the facilitators are in the community:  'The institutions in socialist society which act as the facilitators between the public and private realms are the Soviets. They [facilitators] are the congresses [diverse groups], which facilitate the debate [dialoguing to consensus] of universal problems [social issues] in the context of the everyday.”[7]

In other words, this system was being tested in the last century, and its persuasive suggestions for change were effectively linked to relevant events, felt needs and the current crisis.

If this complex and transformational process sounds confusing, please read Mr. Worts' article. And remember that a driving force behind the global shift to TQM has been Peter Drucker, a management guru to governments as well as churches and corporations. Business Week online calls Drucker a "social communitarian" who "brings a communitarian philosophy to his consulting."[8]

Next, consider a 1998 training manual titled "Basic Facilitation Skills for Law Enforcement" used by the San Diego and Chula Vista COPS programs. It explains the function of the facilitator who must guide the group toward a pre-planned consensus, then warns potential community facilitators that some of their group members may try to block the process or hinder group consensus. These resisters might refuse to compromise their convictions or ignore the standard ground rules for group consensus (respect all members and their views; don't argue or debate; share feelings, not contrary facts or beliefs; be willing to compromise for the sake of unity....) The brochure's labels for such unacceptable behavior includes -

Aggressing: "deflating the ego or status of others; attacking the motives of others.
Blocking: "arguing too much on a point; rejecting ideas without consideration; resisting; disagreeing and opposing beyond reason; bring up dead issues after they have been rejected or bypassed by the group." [Those "dead issues" may not have been dead. Facilitators often ignore contrary voices in order to successfully declare consensus at the end of a meeting]
Isolating: "Acting indifferent or passive; resorting to excessive formality... will not voice concerns in the meeting but sabotages agreement afterwards."
Special Pleading: "Introducing or supporting suggestions related to one's own pet concerns, philosophies or biases...."[9] [Though all participants are required to share their feelings and concerns, people who bring concerns that are politically incorrect are often ridiculed, shamed or reprimanded]  

The last two pages in the COPS manual deal with a strategy called "Force Field Analysis." This transformational tool helps change agents or facilitators measure and use the social and mental forces that work for or against his goal. This is important to our topic, not because of what such analysis accomplishes, but because the specific "force field" chart used by the COPS program to illustrate this process came from a 1951 manual on brainwashing titled Human Relations in Curriculum Change. Its chapters are written by leading behavioral psychologists of the times, such as Kurt Lewin. See the history of this century-old plan in Brainwashing in America and Chronology of the NEA.

Our government has provided countless opportunities for group training in this dialectic process, and hundreds of thousands of eager volunteers have responded to our president's continual invitations. In communities across the country, the "AmeriCorps," Citizen Corps, Neighborhood Watch and other participatory community programs beckon the masses to join their groups. The goal is full participation; all Americans are called to serve their country at this time of need. For example,

"The mission of Citizen Corps is to harness the power of every individual through education, training, and volunteer service to make communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to the threats of terrorism, crime, public health issues, and disasters of all kinds.
     "The Citizen Corps mission will be accomplished through a national network of state, local, and tribal Citizen Corps Councils, which will tailor activities to the community and build on community strengths to develop and implement a local strategy to have every American participate.... If there is not a Citizen Corps Council in your area, please contact your State Citizen Corps representative and work with your local officials to get one started." Citizen Corps
You may want to compare this network of councils with the Soviet hierarchy of councils (or soviets). Both sets of councils are accountable to the polices or standards set at the top of the pyramid. Both operate in local cells or groups that seek consensus through the dialectic process and are accountable to the higher council. Both match the new global vision of solidarity, community, collective thinking and dedicated service to a Greater Whole.
 
One such example is the President's Council on Sustainable Development. Like more than 150 similar national councils, it is accountable to the UN Commission on Sustainable Development. While not formally linked to Homeland Security, the new network of governmental systems and partnerships means that the massive grass-roots network (a "civil society" committed to the UN ideology) will also be supporting community efforts to organize dialectic groups under the umbrella of Homeland Security. The two fit together, for the primary goal of Sustainable Development is not "saving the earth" but social transformation through trained facilitators and the dialectic process. See Local Agenda 21- The U.N. Plan for Your Community
 
If you follow the links from the Department of Homeland Security website, you will find both Citizen Corps and Service Learning. To understand how these nice-sounding terms are used to change values, blot out absolute truths and build solidarity through the dialectic process, read Serving a Greater Whole. It explains that community service or "service learning" is not simply showing compassion and serving the needy. The real purpose is to involve everyone in the consensus "process." To build the new community -- and to share in the "Capacity Building" encouraged by President Bush as well as by the United Nations -- we must learn to think collectively. "Separateness" is out; solidarity is in.
 
Corinne McLaughlin, a theosophist (she follows the occult teachings of Alice Bailey)  became the first task force coordinator for the President's Council on Sustainable Development under Bill Clinton. She also taught this transformational process at the EPA, the Pentagon and the Department of Education. In her book, Spiritual Politics, she wrote,  
"There really is only one sin--separateness. War is more likely to spring from rampant nationalism, ethnocentrism, and intolerant religious fundamentalism--all extreme and separative attitudes...."[15]

Her solution? It echoes Clinton's values: "What is needed as a cure for separateness is a deep sense of community--that we're all in this together." Both knew that community participation was key to the envisioned government control.

3. National and international standards
Those who set the standards and define the terms will rule the systems. Those who manage the resources and determine the consequences of failure will control their "partners" and enforce compliance. The promise of "local control" is meaningless when federal funding is tied to federal standards and policies.

If you haven't done so already, read Reinventing the World Part 3: Global Standards. It will explain the standards that bind communities and states to national and international benchmarks and standards.

Then go to solidarity and learn about the UN standard for community participation. Following UN guidelines, every community must be assessed and monitored for its social capital. At the 1996 UN Conference on Human Habitats (Habitat II) I asked Ismail Serageldin, Vice President of the World Bank, to define social capital for me. Ponder his answer (which I recorded) in light of today's national drive to broaden the web of partnerships, community service and consensus groups:

"Social capital is the interaction between people -- the sense of solidarity or shared values that exists between them.... It is the number of voluntary associations which people enter at the grass-roots level and create a community of willingness and solidarity between them."
Neither the standards nor the transformational agenda are new. Most of the systemic changes took place before George W. Bush became president. As early as 1922, New York Mayor John Hylan warned the people that -  

"... the real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of self-created screen. It seizes in its long and powerful tentacles our executive officers, our legislative bodies, our schools, our courts, our newspapers and every agency created for the public protection."[14]

Today, the top of the pyramid is international, and the Bush administration has neither slowed nor blocked this silent shift. Instead, the White House has pushed the agenda forward and won legal support through a Congress that has been all too reluctant to slow the advance of the new world order. (Yet, it deserves thanks for one victory: it blocked the TIPS program -- at least for the time being. The Justice Department probably won't be asking mail carriers to spy on the community they serve.)

By now, you may have realized that this three-pronged transformation matches the "Third Way" politics touted by British Prime Minister Tony Blair.  It also parallels the socialist vision of Amitai Etzioni, the founder and today's main spokesman for communitarianism. His message deals with the new education system, but it matches the three-pronged structure established under the banner of Homeland Security:

SYSTEM: "The good society is a partnership of three sectors: government, private sector, and community.... While these... may change with social condition, in a good society the three sectors seek to cooperate with one another....
      "In order to encourage communities' role in social services, all state agencies should have citizen participation advisory boards. Their talks would be to find ways for citizens to participate as volunteers in delivering some services currently carried by the state. They should also play a role in providing timely, relevant and informed feedback on the performance of service providers."

PROCESS: "Third Way governments do best when they resist the rush to legislate good behavior. When there is a valid need to modify behavior, the state should realize that relying on informal community-based processes is preferable...."

STANDARDS: "To ensure that this core education principle will be heeded, an annual assessment should be made in all schools of the educational (as distinct from teaching) messages they impart, and of their approach to character formation."[10]

Prevention, profiling and potential terrorists like us

Do you wonder who might be targeted by this vast, interconnected system? The three categories of suspects are:

1. Foreign terrorists abroad
2. Foreign and domestic terrorists in the US
3. Potential domestic terrorists

Much of the Homeland Security focus is on the last category. In its chapter on "Domestic Counterterrorism," the National Strategy states, "The attacks of September 11... have redefined the mission of federal, state and local law enforcement authorities.... Law enforcement agencies... should now assign priority to preventing and interdicting terrorist activity within the United States."[11]

Notice the word "preventing." It is important, because it shifts the public emphasis from catching criminals to exposing potential terrorists. It also shifts our government's administration of justice from the judicial and legislative branches to the executive branch.

Many have tried to define a "terrorist". Some definitions are so open-ended that almost any conservative or home-schooling parent could be suspect. The Homeland Security Act is more precise. Section 2 defines "terrorism" as any activity that--

(A) involves an act that --
       (i) is dangerous to human life or potentially destructive of critical infrastructure or key resources
       (ii) is a violation of the criminal laws of the United States...and
(B) appears to be intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
       (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or
       (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction....

Reading this definition, you and I have every reason to feel safe. Right? But with today's emphasis on prevention, our leaders have prepared lists of potential terrorists. What might they be looking for? Or rather, who might -- in their eyes -- be willing to use violence in order to "intimidate or coerce a civilian population" or "influence the policy of a government"?

In Muslim lands, an author who wrote a contrary book would be guilty.  But what about in America?

Would lobbyists be suspect? Radio hosts? Christian organizations?

The FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTFs) gives us some clues. The White House's National Strategy explains the part played by the JTTFs in Homeland Security:

"We will build and continually update a fully integrated, fully accessible terrorist watch list. When we have identified any suspected terrorist activities, we will then use all the tools in our Nation's legal arsenal... to stop those who wish to do us harm.
      "...the FBI is expanding the Joint Terrorism Task Forces, now operating in 47 field offices, to all 56 FBI field offices by August 2002."[12]
One of those 56 FBI field offices -- located in Phoenix, Arizona -- printed a three-fold flier several years ago. The back panel introduces the JTTFs mission:  "...the purpose of this information sheet is to assist uniformed patrol officers in identifying potential domestic terrorism. Domestic terrorism is defined as: Groups or individuals operating entirely inside the US, attempting to influence the US government or population to effect political or social change by engaging in criminal activity."[13]
 
The front panel states, "If you encounter any of the following, call the Joint Terrorism Task Force." Its list of suspects justifiably included "Hate Groups" such as "Skinheads, Nazis, Neo-Nazis (usually recognized by tattoos), KKK, White Nationalists...."  But it also listed some surprising suspects:
Right-Wing Extremists
-'defenders' of US Constitution against federal government and the UN (Super Patriots)
- groups of individuals engaged in para-military training
 
Common Law Movement Proponents
- No drivers license
- Refuse to identity themselves
- Requests authority for stop
- Make numerous references to US Constitution
- Claim driving is a right, not a privilege
- Attempt to "police the police"
 
Single Issue Terrorists
- Lone individuals

Do you still feel safe? I smile as I ask that question, for I may well be listed in their vast, integrated system of databanks tracking American suspects. Some years ago, a federal investigator in New Mexico heard a local radio program discussing the United Nations and its agenda. He went to the station, interrogated the staff and included questions about previous guests. One of the two names he mentioned was mine. Apparently, we were suspect because we valued the US Constitution and exposed the power, influence and aims of the United Nations. [See A Terrorist? Me?]
 
If you wonder why "lone individuals" would be listed, read The UN Plan for Your Mental Health. Al Gore summarized the "danger" in a 1992 address to a Communitarian meeting in Washington, DC. He said, "Seeing ourselves as separate is the central problem in our political thinking."[15]
 
To make sure no one is "separate" or "lone," the community programs you saw earlier have been designed to involve every person in group dialogue. As stated in the National Strategy:
"All of us have a key role to play in America's war on terrorism. ... In order to defeat an enemy who uses our very way of life as a weapon--who takes advantage of our freedoms and liberties--every American must be willing to do his or her part to protect our homeland."[1]
The vast network of homeland surveillance
By fall 2003, DHS Secretary Tom Ridge will have 170,000 employees in his department. "The DHS will serve as a central hub of intelligence analysis and dissemination, working with agencies throughout the federal government such as the FBI, CIA, NSA, DEA, the DOD and other key intelligence sources." www.dhs.gov/dhspublic/theme_home6.jsp
 
Although his wife, Michele Ridge, is not an official "partner," she will serve his purpose as "the hired national spokeswoman" for Communities That Care (CTC). According to an article titled, "Mrs. Ridge promotes survey on sex, drugs," the CTC "developed the youth survey used in more than 400 communities nationwide to collect personal information from students to help local governments justify federal and foundation grant applications."[16]  Majoring in "the field of prevention science," the CTC is a "complete prevention planning system for a healthy community" provides "hands-on training" in leadership, community planning, "strengths assessment," implementation and evaluation -- all the TQM skills and technology needed to transform a community and measure compliance.[17]
In contrast to the silent, behind-the-scenes work of the CTC, the following agencies and offices were officially transferred to DHS: Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), U.S. Secret Service, Coast Guard, Customs Service, Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Federal Protective Service (FPS), Office of Domestic Preparedness (ODP) and Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC).

Specific functions were transferred from the FBI, the INS, Departments of Justice, Defense, Health and Human Services, Commerce, Energy and Agriculture.
 
No one mentioned the "Secretive U.S. Court" established in 1978 by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act [FISA]. An article in the San Francisco Chronicle described its power:
"Cloaked in secrecy and unknown to most Americans, a seven-judge court has been busy in a sealed room at the U.S. Justice Department approving 'black bag' searches, wiretaps and the bugging of homes in the interests of national security.
The court, which has been operating for more than 20 years, has approved more than 10,000 government applications for clandestine searches and surveillance of foreigners, immigrants and U.S. citizens -- and only one request has ever been denied.
      "In its anti-terrorism proposals, the Bush administration is asking Congress for a broad expansion of the enormous powers already granted to the executive branch under the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act [FISA]....
      "Civil liberty advocates say they fear the government will take advantage of the administration's proposed change and use the pretext of intelligence gathering under FISA to go after other criminal activity, making an end run around the stricter Fourth Amendment protections in criminal law....  They argue that the total secrecy of the process has eliminated any public accountability to ensure that the process is not being misused."[18]
With the additional power and authority granted our President by the USA Patriot Act and the Homeland security Act, the FISA Court fades in significance and shock value. With today's technology, there are few limits to the ways that our government can manipulate, monitor and spy on American citizens without our knowledge. And while our government's right to personal information expands, the taxpayers' right to be informed shrinks. So it's not surprising that the Justice Department would draft a sequel to the Patriot Act with "sweeping new power." Were they trying to guard this secret bill until a greater crisis would set the stage for its acceptance?[19]
 
While America's founders built a government that would be accountable to the people, this monstrous new system turns the old Constitutional safeguards upside down. Today the people are accountable to unthinkable policies, rules, regulations and politically correct values, while much of our government hides its words and intentions behind a veil of secrecy.
 
Again, Al Gore sheds light on this revolution. Of course, his system of government control would be marketed to the masses under the banner of the "environmental crisis" rather than today's current crisis:
"Adopting a central organizing principle – one agreed to voluntarily – means embarking on an all-out effort to use every policy and program, every law and institution, every treaty and alliance, every tactic and strategy, every plan and course of action – to use, in short, every means to halt the destruction of the environment . . . .
     "Minor shifts in policy, moderate improvement in laws and regulations, rhetoric offered in lieu of genuine change—these are all forms of appeasement, designed to satisfy the public’s desire to believe that sacrifice, struggle and a wrenching transformation of society will not be necessary."[20] Emphasis added
A Biblical perspective
 
In the midst of these changes, our God still reigns!  Nothing escapes His watchful eyes. And nothing happens that doesn't in some way serve His plan. Today as always, He is our high tower and our Hiding Place. Nothing touches His people but through His love and for our ultimate good.
 
He is also the Truth. And He tells us that our battle is not "against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." Ephesians 6:12-13
 
Evil is not simply militant terrorists who would destroy America or the Communist leaders in North Korea who defy UN agreements and mock our military forces. Evil is far more subtle. It is in us and all around us. It holds us captive and it blinds us to the truth. That's why Jesus gave His life to set us free.
 
Two of the most dangerous evils we face are (1) the popular illusions that replace reality in our minds and (2) the psycho-social strategies that immunize our minds to God's unchanging truths. Both are vital to the three-pronged "quality management" system that has risen like a monster out of the sea and now spreads its tentacles into every part of this planet.  
 
To stand firm against these and other forces that deceive and destroy, please see Brainwashing & How to Resist It. Know the tactics and how to resist. Then pray that God guide our leaders, guard our freedom, equip our children and protect our homes. Remember, when we trust and follow God, He makes us "more than conquerors" through Christ. Romans 8:37

Trading Truth for Solidarity - Part 1
From Pentecost to Pluralism

By Berit Kjos - May 2007

"On Pluralism Sunday [Pentecost, May 27] progressive Christian churches around the US will explore and experience other religious traditions.... We grow closer to God, grow deeper in compassion, and understand our own tradition better by honoring and exploring the world’s religions."[1]
 
"It’s not just tolerance, it’s to go beyond tolerance, to principle pluralism. The fundamentalists have a pessimistic view of future, and they have this perception... that there’s an unbridgeable divide between the believer and the unbeliever.... We don’t believe that."[2] Richard Cizik, National Association of Evangelicals
 
"This is the New Spirituality’s false gospel of Oneness: 'We are all one. Ours is not a better way, ours is merely another way."[3] Tamara Hartzell, In the Name of Purpose - Sacrificing Truth on the Altar of Unity
It's no secret that the today's world system is driven by a vision of global solidarity and spiritual pluralism. We don't know God's precise schedule, but He warned us long ago to prepare for a time of "falling away," when people with "itching ears" would trade truth for myth and reject the "sound doctrine" needed to guard against deception.[4]  Do those signs describe our times?

Exposing the dark forces behind this spiritual revolution, Tamara Hartzell quotes occultist Alice Bailey, whose main source of "insight" was her spirit guide, Djwhal Khul:

“The day is dawning when all religions will be regarded as emanating from one great spiritual source; all will be seen as unitedly providing the one root out of which the universal world religion will inevitably emerge. Then there will be neither Christian nor heathen, neither Jew nor Gentile, but simply one great body of believers, gathered out of all the current religions. They will accept the same truths, not as theological concepts but as essential to spiritual living…. Such a world religion is no idle dream but something which is definitely forming today.”[5]

That prediction was dictated by Bailey's demonic mentor in 1947, before the telltale signs of social transformation were noticeable. But the next three decades brought radical changes. Humanistic psychology, multicultural education, the dialectic process, and countless other transformational schemes had been sown and began to bear fruit through institutions and "educational laboratories" across America. Together with data tracking technology, they evolved into increasingly sophisticated programs for manipulating minds, changing values, and undermining Biblical truth. [See Brainwashing in America]

Seminaries along with universities embraced the new way of thinking, and soon the revolution swept through churches as well. Postmodernism rejected the truth and values that had shaped America -- and pluralism is replacing them. The unthinkable is becoming the norm!
Hostility toward unbending Biblical Christianity is rising fast, exposing today's double-minded guides who bend the truth to please people and broaden their influence. Ponder these statements by three trusted models of Christian leadership. Are they teaching God's Truth -- or promoting a more popular postmodern distortion?

1. Billy Graham made this statement during a 1997 interview with Robert Schuller:
"I think everybody that loves Christ, or knows Christ, whether they're conscious of it or not, they're members of the Body of Christ. ...He's calling people out of the world for His name, whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world, or the Christian world or the non-believing world, they are members of the Body of Christ because they've been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus but they know in their hearts that they need something that they don't have, and they turn to the only light that they have, and I think that they are saved, and that they're going to be with us in heaven."[6]
 
"I used to believe that pagans in far countries were lost if they did not have the gospel of Christ preached to them.... I no longer believe that." ("I can't play God anymore," McCall's, January 1978)
 
But God said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel" (Mark 16:15). Faith must be grounded in Truth -- the reality of the crucified and risen Jesus. "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:10-12)
2. "America's pastor"    Rick Warren gives a similar twist to the uncompromising Scriptures. Dismissing the Biblical "foundation" for our relationship with Jesus, he cheered his UN audience and CNN listeners with these false assurances:
"You may be Catholic or Protestant or Buddhist or Baptist or Muslim or Mormon or Jewish or Jain, or you have no religion at all. I’m not interested in your religious background. Because God did not create the universe for us to have religion. He came for us to have a relationship with him.”[7]

“I have known many people who believe in the Messiah of Jesus, regardless of what religion they are, because they believe in him. It’s about a relationship, not a religion."[8]

3. President George W. Bush fits right in. He, too, has made countless head-scratching comments that turn God's Truth into pluralist proclamations. Do you wonder, as I do, if he really believes what he says? Or is he just trying to please his Christian constituents without offending others?
"In an exclusive interview with ABC News' Charles Gibson, Bush said he believes that both Christians and Muslims worship the same God. 'I think we do. We have different routes of getting to the Almighty,' Bush said."[9]
 
"The same Creator who names the stars also knows the names of the seven souls we mourn today," Bush added. "The crew of the shuttle Columbia did not return safely to Earth; yet we can pray that all are safely home."[10]
"Americans of many faiths and traditions share a common belief that God [which God?] hears the prayers of His children and shows grace to those who seek Him. ... There is a power in these prayers [to diverse gods].... I ask the citizens of our Nation to give thanks, each according to his or her own faith, for the freedoms and blessings we have received and for God's continued guidance, comfort, and protection."[11]

Has he forgotten that Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me" (John 14:6)?

Diana Eck, founder of Pluralism Project at Harvard, is not a "trusted model" of Christianity. Yet, in her promotion of Pluralism Sunday, she echoes the above sentiments:
"I have found my own faith not threatened, but broadened and deepened by the study of Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, and Sikh traditions of faith. And I have found that only as a Christian pluralist could I be faithful to the mystery and the presence of the one I call God.... We believe that God is no way constricted or limited by the traditions, doctrines, dogma, or texts of any one religious tradition.... Through it all, we are connected to the same infinite Source and we are all unified by the same all-inclusive Spirit. For us, Pentecost Sunday will be Pluralism Sunday."[12]
Those misleading statements remind me of a sobering Old Testament warning that we would be wise to heed:

"...you cried out to Me, and I delivered you from their hand. Yet you have forsaken Me and served other gods. Therefore I will deliver you no more. Go and cry out to the gods which you have chosen; let them deliver you in your time of distress."  Judges 10:12-14

Reinventing Pentecost

Like Diana Eck, the Interfaith Center at the Presidio promotes the new version of Pentecost: "On Pentecost Sunday, May 27, 2007, Christian churches across the United States and beyond will dedicate their worship to a celebration of our interfaith world."[13]

This interfaith feast is sponsored by Center for Progressive Christianity (CPC). It doesn't claim to be Biblical, but it does present itself as a more accommodating version of Christianity. And it gives us another sobering glimpse of the direction the world is headed. Remember, what seems absurd today may seem "normal" tomorrow.  What has been "right" to Christians may soon be reviled -- even in churches: 

"On Pluralism Sunday progressive Christian churches around the US will explore and experience other religious traditions.... Participating congregations will benefit by being included in national and regional publicity.... creating a special 'evangelism' opportunity to reach out to people who seek open-minded, open-hearted churches....

"We don’t claim that our religion is superior to all others.... Pluralism Sunday spreads good news: there is a way to be Christian without making this prideful claim, which has been the cause of so much inter-religious division and misunderstanding.

"Acts chapter 2 in the Bible recounts the powerful legend of Pentecost. When Jesus’ disciples gathered in Jerusalem, the 'curse of Babel' was reversed, and suddenly people who spoke different languages could understand each other."[1]

God had good reasons for disrupting the Babel building project. He saw the arrogance of ambitious visionaries who sought to control the world through human unity and ingenuity. Now, with UN treaties and global technology, mankind is establishing a far more sophisticated monument to human strength and solidarity. And God, who is "slow to anger," will not be patient with us forever.

The actual Pentecost was no "legend." An historical event, its wonders were documented by eyewitnesses and ancient historians. On that momentous day, God sent His Holy Spirit to equip His true Church with the life, strength, wisdom and love needed to serve Him anywhere in the world. But only those who believed in Jesus Christ received His Spirit -- the miraculous gift that would transform poor, uneducated fishermen into faithful preachers with the courage to face torture and death in the name of Jesus.

"When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they [disciples and other believers] were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance....

"Then they ["the multitudes"] were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, 'Look, are not all these who speak 'Galileans? 'And how is it that we hear, each in our own 'language in which we were born? Parthians and Medes... visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs—we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.'” Acts 2:1-13

Peter, the humbled disciple who had thrice denied Jesus, stood up to explain. Knowing the joy of divine forgiveness, he shared the good news of Christ's victory through His death, burial, and resurrection. The people were amazed.

"What shall we do?” they asked.

"Repent," answered Peter, "and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.... Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them." Acts 2:38-41

The "enemy" to man's global vision

"...no one religion rightly can claim superiority over all others," says Rev. Jim Burklo, the Presbyterian coordinator of Pluralism Sunday. "More and more people have been exposed to the insight and wisdom in spiritual traditions other than their own. Many folks see the damage that religious chauvinism is doing in the world today, and have turned away from Christianity."[13]

Do those words sound familiar? It might, if you have read our article on Al Gore's "panreligious perspective." Compare Rev. Burklo's views with Mr. Gore's statement Earth in the Balance. Notice his attitude toward those who refuse to compromise their faith:

"The richness and diversity of our religious tradition throughout history is a spiritual resource long ignored by people of faith, who are often afraid to open their minds to teachings first offered outside their own system of belief. But the emergence of a civilization in which knowledge moves freely and almost instantaneously throughout the world has... spurred a renewed investigation of the wisdom distilled by all faiths...."[14]

Postmodern pluralism sounds tempting to the world. Few mention the devastating consequences: spiritual blindness, moral corruption, cultural decay, bondage to lust and cravings, an epidemic of depression and hopelessness, and a growing hatred for uncompromising Christians.

While the Bible warned us it would happen, it also offers wonderful hope:

"...in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!  ...all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned..." 2 Timothy 3:1-14

"If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31-32

Trading Truth for Solidarity - Part 2
Training Teens to Twist the Truth
 
By Berit Kjos - June 2007

"You can only have a new society... if you change the education of the younger generation...."[1]  Marilyn Ferguson, The Aquarian Conspiracy 

"Fundamentalism is a worldwide threat.... So how do we counter it? The key is to change the view that salvation depends on playing by certain religious rules: everyone is saved."[2] World Economic Forum, 1999
“Instead of destroying and ridiculing the native names of the Creator God [of other religions], we... should introduce Jesus as the Son of their creator God.”[3] Perpetuated in Righteousness, promoted by YWAM [Youth With a Mission].

"I am a youth leader at our church.... The church staff would have the youth ministry turned into a smorgasbord of entertaining activities designed to retain current students and attract new ones.  It needs to be 'fun' and 'exciting' and you need to shorten the message time. Doctrine doesn't fit. Scriptures like Acts 2:42 don't matter."[4] A concerned Christian

"Last year I was asked to teach the high school Sunday school class for four weeks," wrote Dan Titus, a visitor to our website. "At the end of each lesson the students broke up into discussion groups. I presented the questions for them to discuss. One group decided they would rather discuss the latest R-rated movie. The discussion leader had no problem with them changing the discussion. Another group looked at the questions on I Thessalonians and said, 'We don’t need to discuss this.'  It dealt with persecution, but the group had no interest in the Bible."
Unusual? Not according to the Barna Group:

"Our continuing research among teenagers and adolescents shows that the trend away from adopting biblical theology in favor of syncretic, culture-based theology is advancing at full gallop."[5]
This gallop toward all-pervasive pluralism shouldn't surprise us. Taught to stress tolerance more than truth, few dare criticize even blatant compromise. Sensuality, immodesty, insolence, mysticism... anything goes, if it can draw a crowd and teach new values. 
 
"Our church announced 'that the youth would be going on a retreat,' a troubled parent told us. It promised "Twenty-four hours spent living, learning and serving in the inner city: Issues of poverty, justice and homelessness will be explored through various debriefing and service components. Students will be challenged to realign their perspectives, passions and pursuits with those of Christ."
 
"The buzz word 'debriefing' sounds suspicious to me," the mother added. "So does 'realign their perspectives -- as if Christianity has not been effective enough in the past so we have to 're-imagine' and 'rethink' God's Word in light of the world." She continued,
"My daughter struggles with obedience to parents, submitting to authority, and loving the elderly. It seems to me that the youth group should encourage growth in those areas....
 
"We left another Baptist church about 4 years ago because of the youth pastor's successful start of an emerging church, which included lecto divina techniques, visualization in the sanctuary, contemplative prayer and various other new age influences. All this while our youth room set up prayer stations, icons, candles and promoted on-line labyrinth prayers. It seems like our children are being used as lab rats for someone's idea of a cool way to feel spiritual, experience new environments, and check off that 'service project' box."[6]

Experimental spirituality

Lab rats? As church leaders experiment with different tactics for social change, our children are immersed in transformational experiences -- not unlike what the World Economic Forum prescribed in 1999: "'Religion should become experimental - it should become experiential,' said Professor K.L. Seshagiri Rao, Chief Editor of the Encyclopedia of Hinduism.... Addressing the topic, "Religion as a Global Phenomenon for the New Millennium," he called for an end to divisive dogma and a reawakening of inclusive spirituality."[7]

Those two points -- ending "divisive dogma" and promoting "inclusive spirituality" -- highlight two goals of postmodern visionaries, whether UN elitists, corporate human resource managers, or youth ministers in emergent churches. They know that dogma (used as a derogatory reference to God's unchanging guidelines) blocks their planned transformation, while spiritual diversity fuels it. And they know how to use group dialogue and "tolerance" to silence traditional voices.

Their "progress" leave Christian parents and God's true gospel behind. The article "Teens Change Their Tune Regarding Self and Church" gives us a glimpse into the problem:
"...sensitivity to faith matters has not resulted in a boom in Christian conversions.... Teens do not go to youth groups for music and games, and they will not attend 'adult church' for music and preaching. They demand transcendent adventures and supportive relationships. They need an outlet for their desire to have a positive affect on the world...."[8]
Transcendent adventure? Today's revival in medieval mysticism and "Christian" fantasy games fits right in. A "positive effect" on the world? This craving for politically correct "goodness" is served by countless programs that offer facilitated "community service" along with the sensitivity or "diversity training" needed to create solidarity. Forget traditional values and family unity. They clash with this social revolution!
 
But the new "barbarians" fit well.  As Pastor Erwin McManus explains in his popular book, Barbarian Way,
"Their lack of respect for tradition or ritual makes them seem uncivilized to those who love religion. When asked if they are Christians, their answer might surprisingly be no, they are passionate followers of Jesus Christ. They see Christianity as a world religion, in many ways no different from any other religious system. Whether Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, or Christianity, they're not about religion; they’re about advancing the revolution Jesus started two thousand years ago. This is the simplicity of the barbarian way."

"...we have lost the passion and power of that raw, untamed, and primal faith."

"Jesus understood His purpose was to save us not from pain and suffering, but from meaninglessness." [See His actual purpose]

"At Mosaic... we don’t describe ourselves as a modern church or a postmodern church, a contemporary church or an emerging church. The only description I use is that we’re an experimental church. We volunteered to be God’s R&D [Research & Development] Department."[9]
Few "Christian" activities are more barbarian than Bible Fight, The Video Game. Chris Rosebrough first heard about it from youth ministers who described it as "awesome" and “most fun." His article shows the other side:
"There was no outrage over the game.... no shame expressed over enjoying a game that blasphemes our Lord. Instead, there was gleeful excitement... and enthusiasm for blogging about it and sharing it with the friends in their online communities....
 
"In the game you can pick different Bible ‘characters’ to fight each other.... The characters include Moses, Noah, Eve, Mary, Satan and Jesus. Each character has 'special' moves and powers. For instance Noah can call forth a stampede of ark animals, Eve (who is wearing only fig leaves) can whap her adversaries with a snake, Moses can rain down a plague of frogs while Jesus can clobber his opponents with a cross.... This is the type of mockery that we'd expect from the world and unbelievers. But what does it say about the state of the church when Christians, rather than being outraged, are proud to express their approval of a game like this?"[10]

We do well to remember God's warning:

"...the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth.... Professing to be wise, they became fools. ...God gave them over to a debased mind... being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness... disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them." Romans 1:18-32
Blending sensuality with spirituality
Teen Mania, Battle Cry, Acquire the Fire.... This popular trio of "Christian" teen programs promises thrills, relevance, and relationships. But plenty of parents are confused and concerned. What kinds of thrills? they wonder. Will those events deepen their love for God -- or for popular culture?

The article "Re-Branding Christianity" by Discernment Ministry starts with this glimpse of a Teen Mania [Acquire the Fire] conference. Notice how sensuality and spirituality merge as in the pagan rituals of ancient Rome:

"This is how you enlist in the Army of God: First come the fireworks and the prayers, and then 4,000 kids scream, 'We won't be silent anymore!'... The lights in the Cleveland arena fade to blue, and a man on the stage whispers to them about sin and love and the Father-God. They rise.... the twenty-one-year-old MC... summons the followers to show off their best dance moves for God. 'Gimme what you got!' she shouts. They dance -- hip-hop, tap, toe and pelvic thrusting. Then they're ready. They're about to accept 'the mark of a warrior,' explains Ron Luce, commander in chief of BattleCry..."[11]

A discerning parent asked us to watch an online promo calling teens to "get re-ignited at the Acquire the Fire [ATF]: Branded by God" tour. Its transcribed words (excerpts below) are punctuated with the beat of contemporary rock and short film clips of gross behavior and barbarian-style eating:
"Where did you get your flava’? Are you submerged in pop culture? Get the answers while you discover God surrounded by thousands of fellow soldiers. Be trained to acquire the mark of a true warrior."

"Sometimes I feel God. Sometimes I don’t feel anything, but I’m still devoted to Him."

"Then… get your fist in the air and your feet off the floor for music from Flyleaf, Cutless, BarlowGirl...."

"There’s my dreams, my reality, and it stars my friends: The Jock, The Comedian, The loyal friend ["Do you really want to know what happened last night?"].... Uhhh, they’re just Freaks! ... Some are ones you’d like to avoid." [The corresponding three-word outburst sounds like a phrase starting with the "F" word and followed by "the Kracken," a demonic creature.].[12]

"...multi-media tools...  include podcasts and a DVD packed with exclusive messages and insight from Ron... Jeremy Camp, Skillet and Superchick..."[13]

Never heard of Superchick? Her website tells us that "What started as a vision for a one-girl revolution has multiplied into an army of nonconformists who believe in themselves and their ability to affect change...." Where does God fit into that picture?
 
Meanwhile Promise Keepers "are launching a rite-of-passage offshoot for teenage boys:"
"Hoping to capture what organizers fear could be a lost generation of evangelical Christians, 'Passage' uses Christian rock bands, hip-hop artists, extreme sports exhibitions.... Randy Phillips... says a youth revival is possible if the Christian message is repackaged in a more relevant form.... '[T]hey are rejecting the current expression of the church....'"[14]
Are they "ashamed of the Gospel"? [Romans 1:16] Have the leaders forgotten His warnings about those who "pervert the gospel of Christ?" Is contextualization (adapting the message to the cultural context) replacing Biblical teaching? [See changing His Word]

"I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ." Galatians 1:6-10

Global Spirituality
In his article "Golden Calf Evangelism," Mike Oppenheimer reminds us of an Old Testament illustration. God had called Moses up onto Mt. Zion to receive His commandments. Meanwhile, the waiting Israelites grew impatient. To please them Aaron gathered their jewelry and forged the gold into the shape of a calf -- an imitation of an Egyptian god. Then they celebrated with "worship" and debauchery.

God was not pleased!  “Go," He told Moses. "They have made themselves a molded calf, and worshiped it and sacrificed to it, and said, ‘This is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt!’ (Ex 32:Cool

Oppenheimer, the administrator of Let Us Reason Ministries, then gives us a timely illustration of such paganization of truth:

"I recently heard a series of programs with Daniel Kikawa being interviewed by Danny Lehmann director of YWAM (who is on YWAM's governing board) on the local Christian radio station. What I heard was extremely disturbing, problematic and some of it was rank heresy. The message was clear -- tell people they can keep their god's name, in their culture and add Jesus into the equation....

"Daniel Kikawa... has written a book called Perpetuated in Righteousness, the Journey of the Hawaiian people from Eden to the present time. This is a portion of their MISSION STATEMENT: '...Jesus Christ is the Son of the Creator of all people and He loves all people equally."[15]

That statement is clarified in Kikawa’s book. Endorsed by YWAM, it states,

“Instead of destroying and ridiculing the native names of the Creator God, we should help preserve them… Christians should cease representing Jesus as the Son of the foreign God of a foreign people.... We should instead introduce Jesus as the Son of their creator God.”[3]

What are the "native names" of this universal "Creator God?" According to Kikawa's strange theology, the "son of" any of the world's mythical "creator" gods and goddesses --  whether Hindu, Celtic, Greek or Hawaiian -- could be called Jesus Christ.

A youth pastor from South Africa sent us an interesting justification for re-imagining God:
"You speak about postmodernism denying absolute truth. True, but don't assume then that the post-modern church does the same. Granted it does say that there are very few absolute truths, far less then modernists would say there are. But the important ones are still there: God is love; God is good; God loves me enough to send His Son to die for me.... The only absolutes left all have to do with God."

But a god who is only defined as love is not the God who revealed Himself to us in His Word. Our sovereign God can't be squeezed into a "positive" New Thought box that hides His holiness, righteousness, justice, judgments and actual plan for salvation. Other religions can be molded to fit cultural preferences -- but not God's word or ways! Those who believe such lies embrace illusions -- false, feel-good deceptions that could blind their eyes forever to the true Deliverer.
"...there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies.... And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed." 2 Peter 2:1-3
 
"I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes....'" Romans 1:16

Trading Truth for Solidarity - Part 3
Shaping the Global 'Christian' Youth
 
By Berit Kjos - August 2007

 "...the purpose of education and the schools is to change the thoughts, feelings and actions of students."[1] Dr. Benjamin Bloom, "Father of Outcome-Based Education"
 
"Postmodern culture is a change-or-be-changed world. The word is out: Reinvent yourself for the 21st century or die."[2]  Leonard Sweet in Soul Tsunami (endorsed by Rick Warren)
"Kids can change the world... right now! So, how do you as an adult inspire these world changers? First, world changers need MENTORS to inspire them.... Honor and celebrate the uniqueness of each child. Ask relationship-building questions...."[3] KIDMO 

"In this new reformation of self-esteem, the first thing required is to pull God down from His supremely elevated place so you can then lift yourself up."[4]  A warning from Pastor John MacArthur
"The whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one," we are told in 1 John 5:19. And the leaders of today's world are just as determined to undermine God’s Word as those who despised Christianity two millennia ago. The fact that their tools and tactics are more sophisticated these days gives us plenty of reasons to heed God's repeated warnings: Be watchful! Pray! Don't be deceived!

The guiding vision of contemporary world leaders was summarized by Professor Raymond Houghton back in 1970. As you ponder his words, remember that the key strategies used in secular schools are now embraced by market-driven churches around the world:

"...absolute behavior control is imminent.... The critical point of behavior control, in effect, is sneaking up on mankind without his self-conscious realization that a crisis is at hand. Man will... never self-consciously know that it has happened."[5]

The main targets of these change agents have been our children, our youth, and our Biblical faith. Have these revolutionaries succeeded? Yes!  We are now immersed in the fruit of their labor: a postmodern world that rejects the Truth and moral foundations that shaped America's faith and freedom. .

GLOBAL TRANSFORMATION

Like our secular guides, today's postmodern, purpose-driven church guides keep sounding the call for continual change. And their restless audience -- dulled by decades of "progressive education" and corrupt entertainment -- are fast falling in line behind the most popular pied pipers.
 
There's little to hold them back from the tempting snares that tug at their hearts these days. The greatest obstacle to deception has always been God's unchanging Word. But that wall of resistance is crumbling fast. Today's transformational leaders know that their pleasure-loving followers would rather dialogue about "biblical principles" in popular movies than study or memorize Scriptures. And such facilitated dialogue is central to this revolution. As Professor Benjamin Bloom ("Father of Outcome-Based Education") wrote back in 1971,
"...a large part of what we call 'good teaching' is the teacher's ability to attain affective objectives through challenging the students' fixed beliefs and getting them to discuss issues."[6]
Bloom was building on the revolutionary foundation laid by Julian Huxley, first head of UNESCO. In his 1947 exposé of the UN agenda, "UNESCO: Its purpose and Its Philosophy," Huxley wrote:
"The task is to help the emergence of a single world culture.... And it is necessary, for at the moment, two opposing philosophies of life confront each other from the West and from the East.... Can these opposites be reconciled, this antithesis be resolved in a higher synthesis?...

"In pursuing this aim, we must eschew [shun] dogma - whether it be theological dogma or Marxist dogma.... East and West will not agree on a basis of the future if they merely hurl at each other the fixed ideas of the past... If we are to achieve progress, we must learn to uncrystalize our dogmas." [Read more here]

Could pastors and church leaders be willing to "uncrystallize" their Biblical foundations? Faced with the world's tempting incentives, today's pragmatic leaders are selling their souls for the latest marketing models. For example, one of today's popular Sunday School programs is the costly KIDMO. Its website emphasizes a unifying "mission," not Biblical literacy:
"In order to equip mentors to inspire world changers, your kids need a MISSION. ... It creates clarity, causes action, and changes perspective."[3]
Changing perspectives is key to this transformation. As Professor Houghton warned decades ago, you won't even "know that it has happened." Compromise becomes the norm as blinded shepherds of God's flocks pursue the latest strategies for "success." The steps below are vital to their unbiblical mission:
Replace solid Biblical teaching with feel-good storytelling.
Reinvent our sovereign holy God as a permissive buddy who applauds your goodness.
Keep affirming God's love and understanding; forget His holy standard and judgment.
Trade Bible study (too didactic and divisive) for facilitated group dialogue.
Stress human deeds not God's doctrine.
Contextualize the gospel and emphasize unity in diversity.
Tolerate everything except old-fashioned parents and other obstacles to change. 
WHOSE VALUES WILL GUIDE OUR CHILDREN?

Parents? Where do they fit into this picture? Mike Yaconelli, the celebrated founder of the popular "Christian" Youth Specialties, gave us a clue in his article "The Problem of Parents:"
"What's the biggest obstacle to effective youth ministry? Parents.... Why are young people stressed out? Parents. Why are young people obsessed with education, good grades, SAT scores...? Parents.... Who supports our ministries until their child has a negative experience, or is disciplined, or is injured, or doesn't like youth group, or the music, or their counselor, or a new sponsor, or the way the youth group is being run? Parents."[7]  Mike Yaconelli, "The Problem of Parents"
Concerned parents have distressed secular change agents as well. That's why Professor John Goodlad, who worked with UNESCO in the seventies, warned fellow educators that -

"most youth still hold the same values as their parents.... If we do not alter this pattern, if we don't resocialize... our society may decay."[8]

"Enlightened social engineering is required to face situations that demand global action now. Parents and the general public must be reached also, otherwise, children and youth enrolled in globally oriented programs may find themselves in conflict with values assumed in the home."[9]

Megan Fuller, a visitor to our website, shows us the results of this anti-family ideology. "I ran across an article by Mike Yaconelli from Youth Specialties about a week ago," she wrote, "and I was floored by his open disdain for parents and traditional church leadership. But it served to bring to mind my own rebellion, and I began to wonder if his disdain and my experiences in youth group weren’t really all that far apart."[10] She continued,

"I began attending a mega-church called Capital Christian Center which has recently strayed into the Emergent Church scene (though they wouldn’t admit it). Within one year of attending that church, I was in the beginning stages of rebellion against my parents and against the foundation of God's Word that was instilled in me as a young girl. Two years after becoming an ACTIVE member of the youth group (and in its leadership) I was in full rebellion against everything my parents had taught me as a child.

"I thought I was righteous. I thought I was the one who had it right. I thought my parents were legalistic (I HATED the writings of Paul). I thought my parents had too many expectations for me. I thought they weren’t really concerned about spreading the gospel as much as I was. I thought I was on fire for Christ. But I thought wrong…and had God not delivered me from that rebellion, I would be lost. Just another product of a youth group much like Mike Yaconelli envisions for every youth group. God help us!"[10]

[Since children and youth are the most vulnerable victims in this spiritual revolution, our next article will deal with three "Models" for facilitating a child's "spiritual formation." All are tested and used in public as well as church school: Contemplative-Reflective, Pragmatic-Participatory, and Media-driven Active Engagement Model.]
TRAINING TOMORROW'S WORLD CHANGERS?

Contrary to Biblical guidelines, the church and the world now share a common goal: to train today's youth to lead tomorrow's pluralistic world. Both church and world are picking out their most promising leaders -- those who heartily pursue the "right" vision and the evolving global mission. I met some of them at the UN conferences and [Gorbachev's] State of the World Forums. Those "chosen" teens from diverse nations were led, through the dialectic process, to synthesize opposing views and embrace an evolving, preplanned consensus. They were trained to think, speak and act as citizens of a collective global village.

Like postmodern "Christian" youth, many of those "chosen" youth believed in God but doubted the Bible. They believed in personal truths but rejected God's absolute Truth. They believed in a Christ but not in our Savior. They loved the creation but denied the Creator. As Harvard student Bill Burke-White reported during Gorbachev's 1996 Forum,

"We have spent this week re-imagining and re-envisioning the world we have inherited.... Just a few short steps from your meeting rooms this week there is a community of youth who were born into the global village.... This is a community that will not tolerate the continued ecological devastation of the sacred landscape of our home... [and] that has no tolerance for dogmatism and fundamentalism."

"This community needs to learn about the new paradigm or to unlearn the old -- we were born into an awakening Earth.... Imagine, if you will, a world which has realized the Youth summit's vision of building a Global Youth Alliance, a planet-wide conversation, an interlinking, a networking of the many youth organizations that share these heart-felt visions...."[11]

"Unlearning the old" ways is key to the global transformation. And its pied pipers are determined to break the old ties and restraints, whatever it takes. Like the Phoenix rising out of its own ashes, the new world must rise above the old beliefs and values. Their arguments sound good and noble -- almost Christian -- to those who never learned to love God's true and living Word. Notice the logical progression from untrue assumptions (#1) to mainstream deceptions (#3):

1. Global peace demands global oneness. Therefore all must follow the global guidelines to unity.
2. Global unity demands collective thinking. Therefore all must participate in small group dialogue.
3. Dialogue and consensus require respect for diversity and synthesis of opposites. Therefore resisters and their divisive Truth must be silenced.
 
Such spiritual assaults on Biblical Christianity are neither new nor surprising. God's holy ways have never pleased the world. They certainly don't fit today's emphasis on self-esteem and feel-good spirituality. And since they undermine God's moral and spiritual boundaries, they invite chaos rather than unity -- coercion instead of freedom.
 
The transformation is speeding up. Those who simply flow with the revolution will find acceptance, while those who passionately pursue "progress" will probably be tomorrow's leaders. But concerned resisters will face some hard choices. Dan (another website visitor) illustrates the battle:
1) My company was recently bought by another company. The new company had individual meetings with us to explain the 'company culture.' At the end of the meeting, we were asked to verbalize our commitment to the company culture with a yes or a no: 'If you agree to our culture, please answer 'Yes.'  They wanted a verbal commitment. Car salesmen use the same tactic to get you in a 'yes' verbal pattern. It also matches the new evangelism.

2) A television commercial for Lexus automobiles shows a gentleman walking thru a metropolitan area, with extremely fast-moving scenery, attempting to give the impression that things are changing very quickly. The gentleman (aka the viewer) is looking things over, as if contemplating what to do. The narrator says something about how the world is changing very quickly, and then in a very pointed way, says - 'Are you IN, or OUT?' It's Us or Them!"
Where do you stand?

Rick Warren assures his followers that "fundamentalism, of all varieties, will be 'one of the big enemies of the 21st century.'" [12]  He may be right! His worldwide influence will surely speed the rising hostility toward the fundamental Truths of God -- a major obstacle to global solidarity.[13]

"If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.... If they persecuted Me they will persecute you... for they do not know the One who sent Me." John 15:19-21
 
"But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God." Acts 20:24




13  General Category / End Times / Incremental Steps to Dictatorship on: November 29, 2010, 02:41:58 am
This article is from Berit Kjos' website:
http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/010/incremental.htm

Incremental Steps to Dictatorship

by Teresa Morris
Updated October 5, 2010

"Giving leaders enough power to create ‘social justice' is giving them enough power to destroy all justice, all freedom, and all human dignity." (Thomas Sowell )

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." (George Santayana)

"The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse." (Edmund Burke)

"If you by any means forget the Lord your God and follow other gods... you shall surely perish." (Deut. 8:19)

History shows us that as free nations become complacent, they become vulnerable to manipulation. Most dictatorships rise gradually -- a step at a time. Smooth talking politicians make each incremental step seem reasonable, because the masses are blind to the tides of change. The wisdom of Wendell Phillips fades away: "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty."

Austria illustrates the power of gradualism. In 1933, it was a free nation. In 1934, its government began to centralize its power and welcome the influence of Nazi sympathizers. By 1938, it had become a Nazi dictatorship .

The downward slide began with one crisis after another. A third of the people were out of work, inflation rose to 25%, and political turmoil caused civil unrest. People longed for a leader to rescue them. Adolf Hitler campaigned in Austria, promising to solve their problems if they were annexed to Germany. A persuasive speaker, he gave them hope and won their hearts. The Austrian people voted him in.[1]

Why? How could the Austrians be so blind? The answer is simple: they faced hard times, so they chose to believe Hitler's promises. They didn't see him as we do -- brutal, arrogant, narcissistic and ruthlessly ambitious. That image came later, when it was too late to escape his grasp. In the beginning, Hitler appeared as a caring, charismatic, captivating visionary.[2] His words brought hope of prosperity, and his public image was intentionally shaped with pictures of his smiles, benevolent deeds and warm encounters with children and babies.[3]

After the annexation, new government jobs were created and order was restored. The people were encouraged and hopeful, and -- for a short while -- the nation prospered. Then it crashed. This transformation is described by Kitty Werthmann:[4]

"I lived in Austria under Adolf Hitler's regime for seven years. Dictatorship did not happen overnight. It was a gradual process starting with national identification cards, which we had to carry with us at all times.... Gun registration followed, with a lot of talk about gun safety and hunting accidents.... Freedom of speech was the next target.... With a large network of informers, people were afraid to say anything political, even in their own homes."

She tells of other changes, including nationalization of education; indoctrination of children; socialized medicine; government control of businesses; and a lack of respect for human life. Before the annexation, most Austrian mothers stayed at home to take care of their children. Under Nazi rule, both parents had to work, so the children were sent to government-run daycare centers.

Gun control came in two stages. First there was gun registration, and then the people were required to give up their guns. Once the people were unarmed, they had no way of defending themselves against the Nazis. After that, political correctness replaced freedom of speech; taxes were increased to eighty percent (i.e., four fifths of income); the nation was filled with informers; anybody who spoke against the government was arrested; and the people lived in constant fear.

In Austria, the transformation from freedom to dictatorship was incremental. No nation is immune to such things, including the United States. In fact, America seems to be following some of the same incremental stops toward totalitarianism.

National Identification Cards

In 2005, Congress passed the Real ID Act. This, in effect, would turn drivers' licenses into a national ID card. However, the law is controversial, and 17 states have passed legislation or resolutions opposing compliance with it. Congress is considering repealing the law. Even if they do, this was an attempt to impose a national ID, and there could be other attempts in the future.[5]

Nationalizing Education and Indoctrinating Young Children

Kitty Werthmann told us how Hitler nationalized the education system. Christian symbols were removed and prayer was banned. Through their government-run child care program, the Nazis would indoctrinate the children with politically correct ideology and absolute loyalty to Hitler. Hitler worship became part of the new structure.  The daycare workers were trained in Marxist psychology, not motherly love, for Hitler was fascinated with communist mind-control.

Children idolized Hitler and sang his praises. Some American children have been taught to do the same for Obama. (See the video "Barack Obama Kids and Hitler Youth Sing for their Leader.")

America is also a nation where prayer is no longer allowed in school, and daycare is common. Obama is centralizing the public schools. His administration is completing a process begun in the nineties during the first Bush administration. A national curriculum with national standards, national tests, and a national database is fast becoming a reality. The goal is to provide "cradle-to-career education for all of America's children." The federal government is encouraging the states to provide children with "early learning experiences from birth through kindergarten entry."[6]

By imposing government education at such a young age, this un-American system exposes Christian children to the worldviews of secular humanism, neo-paganism, and countless other beliefs that clash with home-taught values. It subjects them to anti-Christian peer pressure, and to teachers determined to undermine their faith. No wonder children raised in Christian homes from coast to coast are fast rejecting our God and His ways. Meanwhile churches and youth leaders are bending backwards to conform to the new values and wants of our youth.

Government schools and the judicial system work hand-in-hand to undermine the faith of Christian children. Take Amanda, a ten-year-old Christian homeschooler. She is "well liked, social and interactive with her peers, academically promising and intellectually at or superior to grade level." Her homeschool curriculum meets all state standards. Yet, a judge has ordered her to attend public school because of her "vigorous defense of her religious beliefs." The judge wants her to consider "different points of view at a time when she must begin to critically evaluate multiple systems of belief." In other words, he is forcing her into government education in order to confront her Christian faith.[7]

Information added on October 5. Buried inside the health care bill is a provision that gives the federal government control over all student loans. As a result, the government can now decide which students are able to go to college. It can also refuse loans for students who want to attend colleges that the government doesn't approve of, thus putting financial pressure on colleges to be politically correct.[46]

New federal regulations would enable the federal government to control the accreditation of all U.S. colleges. According to former U.S. Senator Bill Armstrong, "the Department of Education is attempting to subject every college and university in America -- public and private -- to political supervision."[47]

Government Control of Health Care and Businesses

Obama's massive health care bill established government control of health care, which is one sixth of the nation's economy. Its regulation will have a devastating effect on the medical profession. Why would bright students invest in medical school when the pay would be minimal and medical "murder" would be mandated? My foot doctor told me, "Obama wants to make me retire early." My general practitioner told me, "Let me take care of you while I still can."

The government wields increasing control over businesses, both directly and through regulations. Obama's destructive control over Chrysler has been called "another extraordinary intervention into private industry by the federal government." As a result, many car dealerships were closed.[8] According to an attorney who represents some of those dealers, Chrysler closed them because it was "under enormous pressure from the President's automotive task force."[9]

Treating People Like Livestock

Farmers can kill animals that are born sickly or become too old to be productive. Likewise, Hitler talked about getting rid of "useless eaters." In modern America, some "experts" want to dispose of people with a poor "quality of life."

Kitty Werthmann told how the Nazis killed the mentally retarded people in her village. That was a result of Hitler's eugenics program. Following the unconscionable Darwinian ideals of an evolving, purified human race, he wanted to produce a Master Race of strong, intelligent Aryans. People he considered to be inferior (including Jews and the mentally retarded) had to be eliminated.[10]

Because of the Holocaust, eugenics was discredited. However, euthanasia  -- voluntary and involuntary -- is spreading. Voluntary euthanasia is a form of suicide, where patients choose to die -- usually with a physician's help. This is legal in Oregon and Washington.[11]  

Involuntary euthanasia is based on new, convenient medical standards. In Holland, where thousands of patients have been killed against their will, some elderly people are afraid to go to the hospital.[12] A concerned Belgian citizen warned Western nations to guard themselves against "the encroaching euthanasia agenda."[13]

An influential bioethicist in the Obama administration actively promotes health care rationing.[14]  Obama's health care law includes "death panels" with authority to deny life-saving medical care.[15] Once such care has been denied, it becomes unavailable even to patients who would pay the cost themselves.

Gun Control

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has a long record of supporting gun control. In a 2008 brief to the Supreme Court, Holder claimed that the Second Amendment does not pose any obstacle to banning guns.[16]

Obama has initiated a back-door approach to gun control by means of an international treaty known as CIFTA. President Clinton signed this treaty in 1997 but the Senate refused to ratify it. Now President Obama is promoting it. According to John Bolton (former U.S. representative of the United Nations):

"The Obama administration is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about trade between nations, but there's no doubt -- as was the case over a decade ago -- that the real agenda is the control of domestic arms."[17]

Enforcing Political Correctness

President Obama has co-sponsored a United Nations resolution that calls on countries to criminalize "any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence." Since the President of the United States is backing the resolution, then Americans will be expected to abide by it. As a result, this U.N. resolution would take priority over our constitutional right to free speech. In addition, as Robert Spencer said:

"‘Incitement' and ‘hatred' are in the eye of the beholder -- or more precisely, in the eye of those who make such determinations. The powerful can decide to silence the powerless by classifying their views as ‘hate speech.'"[18]

In 2008, a Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) warned that the FCC is likely to implement regulations that will give the federal government control over the content of radio, TV, and the Internet.[19].

In 2009, a high-ranking official in the FCC called for a "confrontational movement" to increase federal control of the media.[20] He openly expressed admiration for Hugo Chavez' efforts to stifle criticism by seizing control of Venezuela's media.[21]

Informers

In 2002, the federal government attempted to recruit four percent of the population as informers. These spies were to include people with access to homes and businesses, such as mailmen, meter readers, cable installers, and telephone repairmen.[22] After a public outcry, this plan was abandoned. However, the attempt to have informants throughout the country is not new. It has continued in various ways, for years.[23]

As part of President Clinton's war on "hate crimes," the Justice Department had a website that encouraged children to report relatives who made a "derogatory comment."[24] Now that Congress has passed the "Hate Crimes" bill, we need to be alert to similar attempts to turn children into informers.

The Ability to Arrest People at Will

The President can legally declare a state of national emergency on his own authority without the approval of Congress. There is no legal accountability. Once a national emergency has been declared, the President can "take over all government functions" and "direct all private sector activities" until he declares that the national emergency is over.[25]

A Master Arrest Warrant enables the U.S. Attorney General to have people arrested if he personally considers them to be "dangerous to the public peace and safety." He can keep these people incarcerated indefinitely without legal accountability.[26]

According to a U.S. Congressman, former Rep. Henry Gonzalez, there are detention camps in America. He said that, in the name of stopping terrorism, the President could evoke the military and arrest American citizens and put them in these camps.[27]

If American troops are unwilling or unable to carry out such arrests, then the President can use Canadian troops, thanks to a military agreement called the Civil Assistance Plan.[28] The President can also use troops from the United Nations.[29]

Right now, there is a bill in Congress (H.R. 645) that requires the Department of Homeland Security to establish at least six more detention camps on military installations. It also appears to further expand the president's emergency power.[30] Jerome Corsi observes:

"We are talking about a slippery slope: camps being prepared to be used in emergencies can easily be used to imprison dissenters."[31]

Additional Attempts to Increase Federal Power

The Obama administration's Financial Reform Bill was signed into law on July 21, 2010. It establishes an Office of Financial Research which would have "unprecedented, real-time access to a wealth of personal and corporate financial data."[32] This new agency would not be accountable to anyone, and it could use coercion to get information.[33]

The Senate has a bill which would give the federal government much more control over our food supply. It threatens to increase food prices and drive many small local suppliers out of business.[34] Even without this new law, Federal agents have already harassed small farms. In April 2010, they invaded a private dairy that doesn't sell to the public.[35] In 2008, a SWAT team with semi-automatic rifles raided a rural home and food co-op, holding the family (including small children) at gunpoint for hours.[36]

Information added on July 29:  The Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Communications Commission are discussing ways to regulate what Americans are able to read and hear. These proposed regulations "would apply across the board to print media, radio and television, and the internet."[37]

In July 2, 2008, presidential candidate Obama said, "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."[38] In March 2009, President Obama again discussed the need for a Civilian National Security Force. [39]

One approach to this is via Obama's Health Care law. It establishes a Ready Reserve Corps that would be subject to "involuntary calls to active duty during national emergencies and public health crises."[40] An article giving details about this corps is titled "Obama Just Got His Private Army."[41]

Another approach is the Universal National Service Act. If passed, this bill would require every American (including young mothers) from ages 18 to 42 to spend two years either serving in the military or doing national service as defined by the President.[42] The bill contains some provisions that could be used to promote a globalist agenda.[43]

Information Added on August 12:  A National Security Letter (NSL) enables the FBI and other federal agencies to require people to give them information without "probable cause" or judicial oversight. Under the Patriot Act, the NSL includes a "gag order."[44] According to Judge Andrew Napolitano, this makes it a crime for people to speak the truth. He said,
"If an FBI agent shows up at your house with a self-written search warrant, the agent will tell you, you may not tell anyone about this.... You can't even answer truthfully in a courtroom under oath whether or not you received one of these warrants, without violating the Patriot Act."[45]

Our Response as Christians

The Bible tells us to love our enemies, to warn all who will listen, and to trust Him -- no matter what happens. It says:

"Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day..." Acts 20:31

"And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you." Ephesians 4:32

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7

If we are willing to obey Jesus and love even our enemies, then God will give us the grace to do it. And if we aren't willing, then we can ask Him to change our hearts and make us willing. With God's grace, we can forgive and love. His grace is sufficient, and His strength is made perfect in our weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:9)

Role-Playing Games & Popular Occultism
Open doors to forbidden realms and spiritual seductions

By Berit Kjos - February 3, 2003

"Video games producers are getting smarter. They lead you to sites where you can be instructed by a real life occultist. You talk to **** people."1 Peter Lanz, a former member of the occult Order of the Golden Dawn

"The magical occult practices of the ancients aren't just for the ancients. The spirits involved are eternal beings, and they are just as active today as they were a thousand years ago, as is their worship.... The toys children play with depict powerful creatures of the darkness. Now, games give explicit instruction in the rituals and methods of the occult. Indeed, gaming tournaments are prime times for occultists to find 'recruits' with exceptional ability."2 N.R.K.

 "Satan is not simply trying to draw people to the dark side of a good versus evil conflict. Actually, he is trying to eradicate the gap between himself and God, between good and evil, altogether."3 Ray Yungen, A Time of Departing

"Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them." Ephesians 5:11

"What I learned in secret is now everywhere," said Peter Lanz, a former occultist.1 In a recent telephone conversation, he explained how today's children and youth explore occult worlds and experience magical thrills that seem harmless. The lure of secret powers -- especially when experienced through role-playing games that immerse players in mythical worlds and virtual experiences -- stir obsessive curiosity about forbidden forces. And, as they captivate their young fans, they fast erode the traditional values that built safe boundaries and brought warnings of danger.

Peter knows this all too well. He was active in occult work for about 30 years. As an occultist he was initiated to the level of a 9o-2o, and was a Temple Master in the "Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn" best known for its most infamous member, Aleister Crowley. Peter studied and mastered a number of other systems of ritual magick. [See note on the spelling of Magick]

"I did everything God considers an abomination in Deuteronomy 18," he told me. Then he described the captivating power of role-playing games -- one of today's most enticing pathways to spiritual bondage.

"Are you familiar with aviation simulators?" he asked. "They simulate the inside of a cockpit in flying a plane. You can learn how to fly a plane in a flight simulator. But in a simulator there is no risk. All personal danger has been removed. When you play these occult games, you're doing the exact same thing that you would be dong in a flight simulator. No risk."
 
So why not try the real thing?
 
Many players do. "These kids are easily drawn into occult groups through [role-playing] tournaments," said Peter. "When kids transition from simulation -- when they actually experience the POWER that is available to them through the rituals they are learning to perform under the guise of 'fantasy' -- that power becomes like an addiction and they get hooked. But they don't see that."
 
"I could walk up to any of these teens who showed promise," he continued, "and I could put my hand on their shoulder, look them in the eye and say, 'If you get a rush from this, how would like to do it for real?' No one has ever answered no."
 
"Softening up" for occult revival - Hermetic Magic & Hegel's dialectic process
 
Why would our nation, so richly blessed by God, embrace the occult? What caused this amazing change in values?  How could it happen so fast!

Actually, our nation had already been "softened up" by the 1960s when the rising rebellion against God erupted into public view. The century-old pursuit of social solidarity based on Georg Hegel's occult philosophy and consensus process had been an effective tool for change.
 
Hegel's 19th century pattern for "group thinking" denied God's absolute truths and trained people to adapt to "continual change" and group consensus. By year 2000, it had been embraced by schools, corporations, community organizations, mainline churches and political structures across America. Through the global media, people around the world have caught Hegel's vision of spiritual synthesis --an enticing blend of spiritual illusions and practices that appeal to our capricious human nature.
 
Hegel studied alchemy, Kabbalah (also caballa, kaballa, etc.) and theosophy. All were influenced by the heretical teachings of Gnosticism. He "read widely on Mesmerism, psychic phenomena, dowsing, precognition and sorcery. He publicly associated himself with known occultists.... He believed in an Earth Spirit and corresponded with colleagues about the nature of magic.... He aligned himself, informally, with 'Hermetic' societies such as the Freemasons and the Rosicrucians" and embraced their symbolic systems of sacred circles, mystical triangles and astrological signs.5  See excerpts from the book pictured.
 
Considering Hegel's occult connections, it's not surprising that his teachings would undermine Biblical faith and all opposing facts. Nor is it strange that the postmodern generation has been largely immunized against genuine Christianity. After all, Hegel's revolutionary dialectic process was the center-piece of Soviet brainwashing. It effectively purged God's unchanging truths and filled the vacuum with evolving "truths" and enticing dreams.
 
While Communist leaders embraced Hegel's process, they ignored his occult beliefs. In contrast, the Western world began to restore those pagan roots long before revolutionary baby-boomers began shouting their demands for sensual freedom and earth-centered spirituality. [See Saving the Earth]  In other words, the sixties didn't initiate this radical change; the turmoil of the sixties was the result of the psycho-social program of "re-learning" which had begun to transform America decades earlier.
 
As the old moral and spiritual boundaries were torn down, the mainstream media preached tolerance and acceptance of all kinds of forbidden thrills. Before long, occult secrets emerged from their centuries-old closets and claimed their place in mainstream entertainment.
 
In his 1998 article titled Popular Occultism, Alexis Dolgorukii shows how the world of fantasy complemented the rise of modern and postmodern occultism:
“During the 1960's, thanks to the works of J.R.R. Tolkien... there began a tremendous public fascination with what is called ‘Swords and Sorcery Fantasy’ and that fascination has continued and intensified to this day.... A vast number of films and computer games and arcade games echo this same preoccupation....
     “[This ‘popular occultism’ appeared during 1870-1925]...  The primary ‘movers and shakers’... were people like Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, Eliphas Levi... Rudolph Steiner, Aleister Crowley, A.E. Waite... Alice Bailey, Annie Besant....
     “Whether we speak of ‘Theosophy’, or The Golden Dawn, or The Orderae Templi Orientalis (O.T.O.)... or any other of the truly enormous number of tiny groups all enraptured by the same glamour, what it is with which we are truly dealing is ‘Popular Occultism’; and it is just as much ‘Swords and Sorcery Fantasy’ as the works of Tolkien....” http://www.parascience.org/popular.htm
Peter Lanz was associated with both OTO and the Order of the Golden Dawn. Founded by Aleister Crowley, its teachings -- like those of other occult 'orders' -- beckon anyone caught in the obsessive web of occult role-playing. That's why we, who trust God, need to recognize our enemy, resist his tempting strategies and know the truths that counter these deadly deceptions. The safety of our children depends on it. So,
"...be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole Armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places."  Eph 6:10-12

Pagan fantasies join the digital explosion
 
While "popular occultism" was imbedding its pagan images, myths and monsters into our modern culture, the world was rapidly adapting to a computerized media. The two seemed made for each other.
 
"Magic is the science of the imagination, the art of engineering consciousness and discovering the virtual forces that connect the body-mind with the physical world," wrote Erik Davis in his article, "Technopagans."  Showing the impact of pagan thrills on the cold logical world of computer language, he introduced Mark Pesce, a pagan leader in computer innovation:
"Mark Pesce is a technopagan, a participant in a small but vital subculture of digital savants who keep one foot in the emerging technosphere and one foot in the wild and woolly world of Paganism.... an anarchic, earthy, celebratory spiritual movement that attempts to reboot the magic, myths, and gods of Europe's pre-Christian people....
      "A startling number of Pagans work and play in technical fields, as sysops, computer programmers, and network engineers. ...
      "Over the millennia, alchemists, Kabbalists, and esoteric Christians developed a rich storehouse of mental tools.... It's no accident that these 'hermetic' arts are named for Hermes, the Greek trickster god of messages and information....
       "Using a combination of ceremonial performance, ritual objects, and imagination, Pagans carve out these tightly bounded zones in both physical and psychic space. Pagan rituals vary quite a bit, but the stage is often set by invoking the four elements that the ancients believed composed all matter....
       "...you find more intimate correspondences between computer culture and Paganism's religion of the imagination. One link is science fiction and fantasy fandom, a world whose role playing, nerd humor, and mythic enthusiasm has bred many a Pagan."6

"Both cyberspace and magical space are purely manifest in the imagination," says Pesce. "Both spaces are entirely constructed by your thoughts and beliefs."6

The characters birthed by Tolkien's imagination fit right in. That's why the first generation of mythmakers and technopagans would masquerade as wizards, hobbits, dwarves and other Middle Earth characters during the pioneering years of computer conventions. And that's why the emerging world of Dungeons & Dragons adopted Tolkien's orcs, dwarves, trolls and elves. Tolkien's mystical realms set the stage and built the pattern for America's future game-makers.   

It makes sense. “The makers of D&D were trained in euro magic -- all the elements of the medieval craft, same as Tolkien," says Peter. "As an occult simulation, this system offers a smooth ride into the real world of euro magic."

In fact, the most popular role-playing games blend fact and fantasy, myth and and history together into a virtual reality that stirs the imagination and implants its dark images in the minds of the players. For example, Warhammer Fantasy Role-Play -- like the new Tolkien games -- is "set in a medieval fantasy world" populated with a vast diversity of orcs, ogres, dwarfs, goblins, wizards, gods and sorcerers. It is -

"...very similar to early renaissance Europe.... There is a magic in this world that makes it special to the fans. This is partly the dark and sinister atmosphere.. and partly the easy and fast game mechanics."
      "When role-playing, you have to act out your part and the Game Master (GM) rewards you for good acting, for making the character you play come to life and for your interactions with the world.... There is the ever present danger of corruption by the dark gods, but many mortal men are more than able to corrupt themselves with no extra help."
The ancient message behind role-playing magic
 
"I was taught in ritual magick how to go to different planes of existence outside the physical body," continued Peter. "I could create a realm there in which I could practice ritual magick and perfect my magical skills. What I did on the physical plane was what I had practiced on the astral plane through creative visualizations. Through my will and imagination, I made things happen on the physical plane. As above, so below! This ritual magick is a manifestation of the power of your will."
 
His words reminded me of Starhawk's formula for magic and spells. Author of The Spiral Dance and founder of the "Covenant of the Goddess" she taught her followers that,
"To work magic is to weave the unseen forces into form, to soar beyond sight, to explore the uncharted dream realm of the hidden reality... to leap beyond imagination into that space between the worlds where fantasy becomes real; to be at once animal and god...
Spells [and magic]... require the combined faculties of relaxation, visualization, concentration, and [mental] projection... To cast a spell is to project energy through a symbol."7
"As above, so below!" These four words summarize the core of magick, explained Peter. But it was new to me, so I did an Internet search. Countless sites came up, linking the occult phrase to occult beliefs such as theosophy, kundalini yoga, the dialectic philosophy behind the yin-yang symbol and Theodynamics. The latter deals with "cosmic or First Force energy and the frequencies supposedly generated by the shape of the pyramid."8 
 
A more useful site gave the history and meaning of this simple phrase. But before you read the summary below, let me explain why I share this with you. As you have seen, these old occult teachings -- once hidden behind closed doors in secret societies and mystical brotherhoods -- have now gone mainstream. Yet, few recognize their dark, occult nature or the forces behind their timeless formulas. We cannot afford to be ignorant any longer. To avoid experiencing evil, we need to discern the evil. So take note of the esoteric concepts in the excerpt below. Many of these have been adapted to Christian counseling, mystical prayer, holistic health and other familiar practices. They sound good to those who are blind to the popular "wiles of the devil":
"This message theorizes that man is the counterpart of God on earth; as God is man's counterpart in heaven. Therefore, it is a statement of an ancient belief that man's actions on earth parallel the actions of God in heaven. ...
     "To the magician the magical act, that of causing a transformation in a thing or things without any physical contact, is accomplished by an imaginative act accompanied by the will that the wanted change will occur. The magical act and imaginative act becomes one and the same. The magician knows with certainty that for the change to occur he must will it to happen and firmly believe it will happen....
     "To bring about such a change, the magician uses the conception of 'dynamic interconnectedness' to describe the physical world as the sort of thing that imagination and desire can effect. ... Mind and body, galaxy and atom, sensation and stimulus, are intimately bound. Witchcraft strongly imbues the view that all things are independent and interrelated....
      "The purpose of all rituals in ceremonial magick is to unite the microcosm with the macrocosm to join God, or gods when invoked, with the human consciousness. When such a supreme union is achieved the subject and object becomes one. This is because the magician feels that he is consciously in touch with all elements of the universe, therefore, he can control them.... This feeling intensifies the more the magician successfully practices his skills.
     "When feeling unison with the universe the magician knows he has reached his Higher or True Self because he has attained mastery of himself and the universe. Thus he...receives the power of the superiors and of the inferiors.' Therefore, he 'hast the glory of the whole world." 9
This is a devious lie! But it's a message that Satan, masquerading as an "Angel of Light," has used to deceive God's people since the beginning of time. Remember what God tells us about this cruel "prince of the power of the air:"

“How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations!
For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars... I will be like the Most High.’
Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol,
To the lowest depths of the Pit." Isaiah 14:12-15

Chaos magick and dark arts

Satan neither keeps his promises nor follows our rules. Behind all the tempting promises of worldly unity lurks a cold, heartless cruelty that few Americans can even imagine. But those who still remember the Nazi concentration camps or bear the scars of torture in Communist prisons understand the terror of a human nature trained and dominated by the forces of darkness.

Peter was part of that dark cruel world, and his description was chilling:

     "Trained occultists will purge all love and all hate. They look for those who have no love or hate, but are predators. If you are part of the occult world and are not a predator, you become a sacrifice. If you demonstrate fear, or emotion, they don't want you.  Games teach you to be a predator – without risking any consequences. No one can harm you. So why not try the real thing? Many do.
     "If you look at your card games, they are used to kill or incapacitate your opponent. This is flight simulation for ceremonial magick. Any form of real or ritual magick. You conjure entities that go out and attack your enemies.
     "In the games, the entities pictured on the cards show the levels of power. Pokemon fans dealt with elemental beings. Yu-gi-oh and Magic the Gathering teach kids to invoke demonic entities, serviters and fallen angelics.
     "In the game, you put your characters out there to be slaughtered. You sacrifice your pawn to gain some points. If an occultist aims for people power at the top, he must remove the people in front of him.
    "When these predators see food -- gullible, captivated players -- they never ignore the opportunity. If you are not dressed for spiritual war, you become their victim."   
Though Satan's tactics have worked well through the ages, he does introduce new twists to satisfy all who are hungry for new occult adventures. Among the more recent ones is something called chaos magic. An article titled "Out of Scientific Magic Systems" compares this new role-playing magic with the old formula-oriented magic:

"RPG [role playing games] magic systems can roughly be divided up into "fixed spell" and "freeform" mechanics. Fixed spell systems are often highly mechanistic.... Freeform mechanics, on the other hand, call for the GM [Game Master, referee] to judge the difficulty of a spell."10

The next excerpts may sound confusing, but it illustrates chaos magic well. Notice how it fits postmodern thinking. Remember, no facts or rules. Just mix and match the religious experience of your own dreams. The author of the article began with this brief dialogue:

"Me: My religion is like a game of Dungeons and Dragons. The first thing you have to do is figure out the rules all by yourself.
"Him: Sounds like Chaos Magick.
"Me: Yeah, kind of.... My religion -- Kemet -- is lumped together with other reality maps. They are called hermetic, neopagan, alchemy, and New Age. None of those words is really accurate. It is more like Sumerian/Canaanite/Hittite...
     "The most obvious characteristic of my religion is that it is completely practical. The last thing I ask one of my students to bring is some theory from a book. As in Zen, I am interested in experience, not in the words that describe it, and never the analysis of anything.
      "Several rituals do this: LCC's Eucharist is one [twisted views of Christian concepts tend to permeate occult systems] , Kemet's Theurgia is another. What they do can be summed up in the following--
As above, so below
As without, so within"11
Finally, meet Tyagi: "Like many technopagans, Tyagi ... explored role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons.... After reading and deeply researching philosophy, mysticism, and the occult, he began cobbling together his own mythic structures, divination systems, and rituals - an eclectic spirituality well suited to the Net's culture of complex interconnection.
      "He also delved heavily into chaos magic, a rather novel development on the occult fringe that's well represented on the Net. Rather than work with traditional occult systems, chaos magicians either construct their own rules or throw them out altogether, spontaneously enacting rituals that break through fixed mental categories and evoke unknown - and often terrifying - entities and experiences.
      "'Using popular media is an important aspect of chaos magic,' Tyagi says.... 'Most Pagans would get online and say, ‘Let's get together somewhere and do a ritual.’ Chaos magicians would say, ‘Let's do the ritual online.’"6

Whether traditional magic or chaos magic -- the results may well look like Christian miracles to a blinded world. The Bible warns us that many will be deceived. But those who love God's Word and refuse to participate in this darkness will be eternally safe in their Lord, Jesus Christ:

      "The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness....
      "Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught."  2 Thessalonians 2:7-16

Your choice: truth or myth?

Those who love and follow God, will be repelled by occult myths. And those who love today's popular occultism will run from God's unchanging truths and boundaries. For if we are filled with His Spirit and follow His way, we will -- by His life in us -- "abhor what is evil and cling to what is good." It's that simple.
 
Other Scriptures are even more specific. For example, 2 Timothy 4:2-5 tell us to --
"Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables (or myths). But you be watchful in all things..."
The world cringes when it hears these truths. Its myths and fantasies are too enticing. That's why people find all kinds of arguments to justify their misdirected love.

In an article titled, "J.R.R. Tolkien: Truth and Myth," Tolkien's biographer, Joseph Pearce, wrote:

"... the power of Tolkien lies in the way that he succeeds, through myth, in making the unseen hand of providence felt by the reader.
        “In his mythical creations, or sub-creations as he would call them, he shows how the unseen hand of God is felt far more forcefully in myth than it is ever felt in fiction. Paradoxically, fiction works with facts, albeit invented facts, whereas myth works with truth, albeit truth dressed in fancy disguises.
        "Furthermore, since facts are physical and truth is metaphysical, myth, being metaphysical, is spiritual.” 12

Do you see the strange reasoning? For example, if Tolkien's mythical realm of occult magic and multiple gods "makes the unseen hand of providence felt by the reader," what message does it actually teach? Does Pearce really believe that God's all wise providence can be felt through the man-made gods in the Lord of the Rings? If so, the seductive myth has blinded his eyes and distorted his view of God's reality.

But that's just what myth does. It provides counterfeit answers to life's deepest questions and shuts the door to the only God who can provide eternal, life-giving answers. Small wonder the UK-based Tolkien Society chose the uroborus, a circular serpent swallowing its tail as a symbol for its organization. On one of its pages, this pagan society highlights the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, Peter's former battle ground:

"Dedicated to such practices as ceremonial magick and divination, it valued these more as gateways to true understanding of reality than for their intrinsic merit."3

Do you see the raging battle for truth and clarity?  What, then, can parents do if their children are caught up in the mystical worlds of occult fantasy games? Peter made these suggestions:

1. "If your child is a professing Christian, don't immediately condemn the games. Instead, explain that the Christian life is based on a belief system -- on Jesus Christ. Then help the child evaluate the game based on His teachings and the 10 commandments. This gives them a Biblical base to work from."
        "If your child wants to keep the game, ask why. (They all do.) His answer will show you what the child doesn't understand -- or why he is resisting."

2. "Teach your child that every part of life must reflect his relationship with Christ. Christians are vulnerable because they compartmentalize their God. Kids say, 'It’s only a game! It’s just fantasy.' They don’t see their God as part of their daily life and play, so they leave Him out. In contrast, occultists base every thought and action on their beliefs."
To prepare your child for daily battles against tempting spiritual counterfeits, consider these three other outlines of vital truths.

The Armor of God - These six truths expose and counter today's most popular deceptions. Even more important, they show us the way to an intimate relationship with God.
The Lord's Prayer - These truths parallel the ones in the armor of God and serve the same purposes.
The Beatitudes - Jesus' message, recorded in Matthew 5, show us a standard for holiness that is far higher than we can achieve, but it comes with the promise that -- by His life in us -- He will make us all He intends us to be. It ends with the reminder that those who follow Jesus will also share in His suffering. Therefore our children need to be prepared for persecution. Uncompromising faith and God's unchanging truths have become intolerable in today's postmodern age.

titled: " CONSENSUS & THE CONSCIENCE "

by Dean Gotcher
August 1997   (Revised 04-03-07)

CONSENSUS & THE CONSCIENCE

            As I have been explaining over the last few years, our whole society is being pulled under the control of socio-psychologists.  When departments of Health, Education, Welfare, and Labor control the development, promotion, implementation, and enforcement of the laws of the land the citizens will always find themselves in a Soviet form of Government (Communism).  All the reinventing of education (OBE), reinventing of the workplace (TQM), and the reinventing of government (STW) taking place in the United States of America today is being done under the departments controlled by socio-psychologists.

            Men such as J. L. Moreno, Kurt Lewin, Theodore Adorno, Erich Fromm, and Abraham Maslow were all interested in using socio-psychology to control the world.  They were all Marxists—Transformational Marxists (J. L. Moreno:  Who Shall Survive:  Foundations of Sociometry, Group Psychotherapy and Sociodrama, J. L. Moreno, Beacon House, Inc., Beacon, NY, 1953, p. xxxix.  Kurt Lewin:  The Practical Theorist: The Life and Work of Kurt Lewin.  New York: Basic Books, inc., 1969.  Karl Korsch a famous Transformational Marxist  worked with Kurt Lewin both in Berlin and in the United States on the socio-psychological measurements of people in a dialectic-praxis setting.  Theodore Adorno and Erich Fromm:  The Dialectical Imagination:  A History of the Frankfurt School and the Institute of Social Research, 1923-1950, Martin Jay, Boston, Little, Brown, 1973.  Abraham Maslow:  The Journals of Abraham Maslow.  Richard J. Lowry, ed., Lexington: Lewis Pub. Co., 1982, p. 132.)  What these men all had in common was their desire to create an environment which would promote the use the dialectic process, a process used by socialists, particularly communists, to solve social and personal problems.

            The environment these men set out to develop, missing in traditional Marxism, is called praxis.  Antonio Gramsci called this form of Marxism the philosophy of praxis.  This praxis environment is a diverse group of people, dialoguing to consensus, over a social issue, in a facilitated meeting.  OBE, TQM, and STW all use praxis.

            Literally every facet of America is using the dialectic process in an environment of praxis to make decisions and set policy.  It is in the classroom, in teacher training, in the workplace, in politics, in the legal system, and even in the church.  The police use it in the DARE program.  The military even use it; the Navy calls it TQL.

            Consensus is at the heart of it, and the searing of the conscience is its goal.  The books which have been written to lay the infrastructure for this dialectic transformational society are referred to as Bloom’s Taxonomies.  In book 2, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives:  The Classification of Educational Goals: Handbook 2, Affective Domain this quotation is found on page 39.  “They further state that ‘the superego. . .is conceived in psychoanalysis as functioning substantially in the same way as conscience.’ Superego development is conceived as ‘. . . the incorporation of the moral standards of society…’  Internalization (incorporating as one’s own) is thus a critical element in superego development and in the development of conscience.  Therefore the levels of the Taxonomy should describe successive levels of goal setting appropriate to superego development.”

            Most Americans, if they bother to read this book, assumed that it was written to help teachers in motivating children to learn facts.  Facts or cognitive was what the first book was assumed to be all about.  (“We recognize the point of view that truth and knowledge are only relative and that there are no hard and fast truths which exist for all time and all places.” Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 1:  Cognitive Domain, Benjamin S. Bloom (ed.) Longman, New York, 1956, p. 32.)  But the statement ‘the superego. . . is conceived in psychoanalysis as functioning substantially in the same way as conscience,’ is not dealing with motivation in the traditional way of thinking.

            What Bloom and Krathwohl are saying here is to have a transformational society the conscience must be replaced with the superego.  The superego can be processed to function in a socialist world since it can be developed to respond to test questions which require “most agree, somewhat agree, somewhat disagree, most disagree” type answers.  The conscience can only answer “right, wrong” or “thou shalt not” type questions.

            By processing out the conscience and replacing it with the superego one can move a society from seeking ideals to one living the ever changing world of ideas.  The Ten Commandments had to come off the school house walls not because of religious tolerance, but because they would not tolerate the replacing of the conscience with the superego.

            By putting everyone in society in a dialectic-praxis environment every individual and every institution will automatically be socialized.  As the conscience is being seared in the dialectic-praxis environment the superego will be habitualized into solving all personal and social problems with consensus.

HOW THE DIALECTIC WORKS

            By making sure every classroom, workplace, religious, and political meeting has a diverse group of people present the thesis-antithesis steps of the dialectic are represented.  Each person present has a position they hold to or believe in.  Each position must be supported with facts.  Each fact must be true, or at least the person holding to it must hold to it as true, and thus be able to say “I know my facts are right.”  If they can not say this then they are not sure of their facts and they do not have an established position or a solid thesis.

            Antithesis is another person or group who holds to facts and therefore a position which is different (obverse) from the one held by person or group with thesis.  Of course antithesis thinks it is thesis, which makes thesis, antithesis.  You may have to think about this a little, but it is true.

            The facilitator (socio-psychologist) must convince everyone their “I knows” are really “I think” or “I feel.”  Once every person is willing to put aside their facts or “I knows” which get in the way or conflict with the group solving a social problem, then consensus or synthesis can take place.

            The facilitator, a “sweet, caring, wonderful person,” does not tell anyone that their “I know” is wrong, just that they must be willing to put it aside if it gets in the way of the group solving a social problem.  If anyone refuses to participate they will be considered “negative,” (“Don’t be so negative.”) If they do participate they will then enter only those facts which the group can accept for the sake of solving the social problem.  They are then considered “positive” in their attitude (“Let’s be positive.”) Everyone in a dialectic-praxis (Transformational Marxist) world are being graded on how well they participate in consensus building for the sake of society.

WHAT CONSENSUS DOES TO THE CONSCIENCE

            Once a person is willing to put aside a fact which supports their position for the sake of group participation they have agreed to compromise their principles for the sake of social acceptance.  Facts which support our position or beliefs include our “can nots,” “must nots,” “will nots,” and “Thou shalt nots.”

            The conscience depends upon established facts. If facts are not longer established or no longer considered worthy of establishing, then the conscience serves no purpose. If facts become ambiguous, feelings become ambivalent.  If feelings become ambivalent, behavior becomes automatic (robotic) to whoever trains it. By participating in the art craft of justifying facts away for the sake of group acceptance, one simply ends up searing their conscience.

            Professionally trained facilitators, out of at least 10 regional training laboratories, (National Education Goals Panel Community Action Toolkit, September 1994.  The first National Laboratory, Human Relations in Curriculum Change, Kenneth Benne (ed.), The Dryden Press, NY, 1951.), are training students, teachers, elected officials, ministers, the police, the military, the media, etc., in dialectic-praxis environments to be socialist (Transformational Marxist) robots of the 21st century.  What is sad, as well as frightening, is that most Americans under their influence, do not know what is going on, or even worse, do not want to know or do not care.  All they want to do is feel good and be bathed in all the sweet, seductive words flowing out of the facilitator’s mouth.

            “We are here to help you.” “Trust us.” These were two of the most overused phases spoken by Marxists around the world during this century.  The language of the facilitator is just as seductive, and just as deadly.  This is the language being used by departments of health, education, welfare, and labor in OBE, TQM, and STW today.

    CONSENSUS:  DECISIONS MADE WITH FEELINGS.
(Seeking human relationship and power.)

CONSCIENCE:  DECISIONS MADE WITH FACTS.
(Seeking the truth and liberty.)

            According to socio-psychologists, the superego, since it can be processed to consensus (feelings), can be used in place of the conscience (facts).  An OBE-TQM-STW or Transformational Marxist society does not need a live and well conscience, it only needs a processed superego.

            The conscience is too slow at adapting to change.  It is too painful to deal with in a rapidly changing society.  This is why the next generation of children, educators, workers, elected officials, police, and military are unknowingly being processed in communitization, democratization, conscietization, habitualization, etc., as they participate in the dialectic-praxis world of consensus building.  A world developed and controlled by facilitators working through the departments of health, education, welfare, and labor.

Outcome-Based Education:
The One Armed Bandit


            As I drove through Central City, Colorado this year I was shocked to see the area’s history being destroyed by, of all things, “one armed bandits.”  Gambling casinos are going up everywhere while slot machines cover every possible inch of the floors of the old establishments.  People sitting in rows, putting in their money, pulling on handles, anticipating great return.  The truth being, few would get a return on their money and in their time spent.  The same is true for OBE.

            The citizens of America are pouring billions of dollars into the one arm bandit of OBE.  They are expecting great returns from all the glitz and hype they hear and see about them.  But they will soon learn, after their children’s time and their own money is spent, the return is not there.

            “Less is more” they hear, yet they keep on cranking away.  What they do not realize is that “less” is less learning reading writing and arithmetic and “more” is behavior modification, behavior modification which makes people addicted for more socialist programs as their rights are being taken away.  Actually, they are not being “taken” away; Americans are giving them away each time they pull the OBE handle.

            Every time Americans pull the OBE handle, by allowing elected officials to go into facilitator controlled meetings, by voting in more taxes, and by volunteering their time, they are spending the next generation’s time and money, all for the chance to “WIN BIG” at the OBE machine.

            Only a few will be allowed to win.  They will be paraded for all to see, while socio-psychologists reap a fortune in control over the possessions which once belonged to the citizens of America: their property, their children, and their rights.

AND JESUS ANSWERING

Mark 13:1-27

             And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!  And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings?  There shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

            And as he sat upon the Mount of Olives over against the temple,  Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately, tell us, when shall these things be?  And what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?

            And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

            And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled:  for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

            But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.  And the gospel must first be published among all nations.

            But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

            Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

            But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand), then let them that be in Judea flee to the mountains: And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house: And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.  But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.

            For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.  And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.

            And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.  But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

            But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

            And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.  And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

DECODING THE ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT

by Dean Gotcher
March 1998   (Revised 04-03-07)

DECODING THE ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT

                        Three verses in the Bible come to mind when I read the methods being used to change society today.  “A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:Cool “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;” (Eph. 4:14) “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinion?  If the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him.  And the people answered him not a word.” (1 Kings 18:21)

            The condition described in these verses is the condition socio-psychologists call “cognitive dissonance.”  This condition of cognitive dissonance is an essential part of Outcome Based Education, Total Quality Management, School-to-Work, and brainwashing.  So as not to alarm the American public of their research with and use of brainwashing on society, socio-psychologists use other words such as “mental hygiene.”

            Regarding Lewin’s use of this method for social change, several words need to be explained (decoded).  Lewin’s “play behavior” represents feelings, spontaneity, impulse, “I ought to be able to . . .,” antithesis, affections, etc.  Benjamin Bloom builds on Lewin’s definition of play behavior in his Affective Domain Taxonomy.  “Barrier behavior” represents knowledge, facts, truths, thesis, rules and standards, right and wrong set by higher authority, i.e. “can not, must not, will not, thou shalt not,” cognition, etc., which restrain play behavior.  Bloom’s Cognitive Domain Taxonomy was developed with Lewin’s “barrier behavior” in mind.

            Neither Bloom or Lewin support the traditional definition of cognition.  They make cognition development dependent upon the affective domain (play behavior).  In this way Bloom, for example, can conclude that “truth and knowledge are only relative and that there are no hard and fast truths which exist for all time and all places.” (p. 32)

            According to Lewin and Bloom, where the cognitive and affective (knowing and feelings) connect or overlap social change can be induced.  For instance we may say we believe such and such (cognitive), yet feel like doing something different (affective).  When we act (psycho-motor) on our feelings (a) which are different than our beliefs (c) we manifest what is called belief-action dichotomy.  When someone points out or we notice the difference between what we say we believe and how we behave, a state of disorganization results.  According to these men, this condition must be developed before change can take place.

Cognitive Dissonance

            Lewin defines this state of disequilibrium (the existence of two conflicting controlling heads within the organism) as one being “governed by two strong goals.”  The conflicting goals being identified with the past (our belief) and the present (our feelings).  This produces weakening of the hierarchy of the cognitive or knowing position one has with his belief resulting in a loss of “hierarchical organization.”  Simply put the person is in a state of “cognitive dissonance” since he has temporarily lost contact with his former source of authority as he participates in an environment which does not allow a traditional structure of authority to develop.  With the loss of former position and identity, frustration sets in.

            Frustration develops when “the cognitive-motor system loses to some degree its character of a good medium,” when cognitive instability occurs (when one’s “I know” becomes “I’m not sure”), or when the structure of cognitive authority (the former authority structure) is missing.  This condition, when sustained, produces regression.  In this way, facilitators (change agent) are able to seduce, deceive, and manipulate anyone caught in their web (the environment of facilitated meetings).  All across America and around the world change, through brainwashing, is taking place for the sake of social harmony and peace, for civic-social cosmic “health.”

            Lewin wrote that “change in organization can be derived from the overlapping between play and barrier behavior.  To be governed by two strong goals is equivalent to the existence of two conflicting controlling heads within the organism.  This should lead to a decrease in degree of hierarchical organization.  Also, a certain disorganization should result from the fact that the cognitive-motor system loses to some degree its character of a good medium because of these conflicting heads.  It ceases to be in a state of near equilibrium; the forces under the control of one head have to counteract the forces of the other before they are effective.” (Barker, Dembo, & Lewin, “frustration and regression: an experiment with young children” found in Child Behavior and Development, p. 457.)

            When one realizes how pervasive this practice is, a state of numbness can set in.  Our silence though will only allow the process to continue.  The answer is to not answer the questions and to get rid of the questionnaire/questioner.  This is hard to do since parents, bosses, and legislators have already abdicated their positions of authority.

            “Whoever defines terms for you controls your life.” We are not a democracy (pervasive government).  We are a Constitutional Republic (limited government), a concept which might label one a patriot extremist today.  We therefore need to limit government and reduce taxes.  We need to get Robert’s Rules of Order out, read it, learn it, and use it as intended.  We need to stop breaking off into facilitated groups (soviets) to get delphied into socialist outcomes with socio-psychologists at the helm-defining who we are, where we came from, and where we are going.  We need to force clear definitions of words before signing anything.  Otherwise facilitators will continue to use ambiguity and “cognitive dissonance” to process us and our children into their New World Order, their One World Government.  First we need to Repent of our sins!  (Acts 2:38)

GOVERNMENT UNDER THE INFLUENCE (GUI) & A RISK-FREE SOCIETY

            Citizens become an enemy of the State whenever government comes unto the influence (GUI) and control of socio-psychologists.  When former Gov. Bill Clinton facilitated America 2000 back in the late 80’s and participating governors returned to their states to likewise shape and control public policy through the use of facilitated task forces meetings, our Constitutional Republic form of government was replaced with a Soviet form of government.

            Whenever socio-psychologists, in collusion with departments of Health, Education, Welfare, Labor, Environment, etc., are given a position of authority over public policy, citizens automatically lose control over their lives.  Laws which are developed, promoted, implemented, and enforced by government that is influenced and controlled by socio-psychologists are laws which take away, rather than protect, the rights of the citizens.  When socialist programs such as Outcome Based Education and School-To-Work come into states via facilitated governors’ task force meetings, via emergency clauses, and via media persecution of any who resist (governors and legislators included), citizens’ control over education, police, military, jobs, government, etc., is usurped.  Citizen’s rights, protected by the Constitution and guaranteed by a limited government, no longer exist.  Government under the influence of socio-psychologists is an all inclusive government, a socialist government.

            When the citizens, in an effort to remove risk from life, allow government all inclusive control over their lives to protect their property, their children, their jobs, their health, etc., government will protect their property, their children, their job, their health, etc., from them when it decides the citizen has become a risk to society.  A risk-free society is a socialist society.  When A Nation at Risk was published in the 80’s no one paid attention to the fact that socio-psychologists wrote it.  We should have realized that we were a nation at risk because of “them.”

            When “a diverse group of people, dialogue to consensus, over a social issue or crises, in a facilitated meeting,” socializing of the participants takes place.  Karl Marx’s Feurbach Thesis #11 sums up this process.  “The philosophers have come up with many different views of the world, the objective however, is change.”

            Some of the organizations, secular and religious, that have been seduced or were intentionally built on this process are Outcome Based Education.  Total Quality Management, School-To-Work, Liberation Theology, the cell group movement, the Billy Graham Association, Promise Keepers, Focus on the Family, many Christian Colleges, Universities, Seminaries, and Churches.

            All facilitate accountability to “the group.”  All are dialectic.  It is not necessarily what these institutions are saying and doing that reveals their involvement, it is what they are not saying and doing.  Be discerning.

            Entertainment limits thinking and allows feelings to take us for a ride.  Experimentation justifies the removal of restraining barriers which inhibit spontaneity and impulse.  America has entertained itself into moral numbness (amorality) and experimented itself into moral bankruptcy (immorality).

Gordon Allport

            Gordon Allport’s book, The Nature of Prejudice, used by Benjamin Bloom to support his Taxonomies, bears witness to the socialist agenda contemporary education is based on.  Some statements from Allport’s book follow.

            “Prejudice tends to be a personality trait.”  “We note that this form of the California Ethnocentrism Scale [Theodor Adorno. The Authoritarian Personality] has four subscales, 1.  Jews, 2. Negroes, 3. Other minorities, and 4. Patriotism.”

            “’Patriotism’ as tested by these particular items obviously does not refer to loyalty to the American creed.  It has rather a flavor of ‘isolationism’”  “The California research found further, as we might now expect, a tendency for these ‘safety-islanders’ [patriots] to be vigorously loyal to their churches, sororities, families, and other in-groups.” “All who live outside the ethnocentric circle of safety are viewed with suspicion.” “The same restrictiveness is seen in correlations between ethnocentrism and social and political ‘conservatism—pseudoconservative’ or selective traditionalists.’”

            “Tolerant children, it seems, are likely to come from homes with a permissive atmosphere.”  “Early training is an important agent in slanting a child toward tolerance.”  “Tolerance [is] the result of several forces pressing in the same direction.  The greater the number of forces that press in this one direction (temperament, family atmosphere, specific parental teaching, diversified experience, school and community influences), the more tolerant the developed personality will be.” “Character-conditioned tolerance is set in a positive worldview.”

            “Some tolerant people are fighters. . . they are intolerant of intolerance.”  “Sometimes they form a group (e.g., Committee on Racial Equality) to test restaurants, hotels, and public conveyances, to see whether discrimination is practiced.” “They make themselves into spies to study and eventually expose agitators and intolerant profascist organizations.” “Whether the tolerant person is militant or pacifistic, he is very likely to be liberal in his political views.”

            “Prejudiced individuals are more often conservatives.”  “The fact that liberalism and radicalism both correlate positively with ethnic tolerance places a strong weapon in the hands of bigots (who are likely to be political conservatives).”  “Tolerant people are more accurate in their judgments of personality.” “Perhaps the best single phrase is that suggested by Else Frenkel-Brunswick, ‘tolerance for ambiguity.’”  “There is a tolerant pattern, not merely a tolerant attitude.”  “A pattern is a synthesis or ‘total style.’”

            “Self-love is compatible with love of others.”  “This disposition grows naturally out of the early dependent relationship of mother and child, of earth and creature.”  “Affiliation is the source of all happiness.”  “Only when life is free from intolerable threats, can one be at ease with all sorts and conditions of men.”

            If you are up on the New Age, One World Government agenda all the above should sound familiar.  Gordon Allport worked with the UN in helping develop and promote UNESCO’s globalist education program.  Bloom’s Taxonomies encourage and sustain this world view.

GOD’S PEACE, WORLD PEACE, AND THE CHRISTIAN

            Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words:  and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.  He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.  These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.  But the Comforter; which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

            Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  (John 14:23-27)  Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth?  I tell you, Nay; but rather division:  (Luke 12:51)

            These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace.  In the world ye shall have tribulation:  but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.  (John 16:33)  And the way of peace have they not known:  There is no fear of God before their eyes.  (Romans 3:17-18)  For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  Because the carnal mind is enmity against God:  for it is not subject to the law of God, either indeed can be.  (Romans 8:6-7)

            Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:  (Romans 5:1)  And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.  And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled.  (Colossians 1:20-21)

                        But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.  For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.  But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.  Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

            Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.  For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.  But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.  For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.  Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.  And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; and to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake.  And be at peace among yourselves.

            Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.  See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.  Rejoice evermore.  Pray without ceasing.  In every thing give thanks:  for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.  Quench not the Spirit.  Despise not prophesyings.  Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.  Abstain from all appearance of evil.  And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.  (1 Thessalonians 5:1-23)

            Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.  But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.  And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, in meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; and that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.  (2 Timothy 2:22-26)  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

            Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons out ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?  Nevertheless, we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.  Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.  (2 Peter 3:10-14)

            John to the seven churches which are in Asia:  Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come.  (Revelation 1:4)

“Obedience and compliance are hardly ideal goals.” 
Taxonomy of Education Objectives Book I Cognitive Domain 1956

"For the dialectical method the central problem is to change reality.… reality with its ‘obedience to laws.'"
Georg Lukacs History & Class Consciousness Class Consciousness What is Orthodox Marxism? March, 1919

The attack is upon the American Middle-Class Family (Bourgeoisie) by Government/Education/Work/Church

        A drum beat, mind-numbing, unyieldingly, repeating, repeating, repeating, pulsating, invading all space, no one, it would seem, can escape its unrelenting pounding.  From that day in the garden, mankind has been marching to this dialectical process, the beat, which Eve and then Adam initiated; the day of the first drum beat, there in the garden of Eden.

For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Romans 5:19

“The conception of the ideal family situation for the child: uncritical obedience to the father and elders, pressures directed unilaterally from above to below, inhibition of spontaneity and emphasis on conformity to externally imposed values.”" Theodor Adorno The Authoritarian Personality

"By making the object need satisfaction, in other words mankind and his desires, rather than obedience toward authority, participants shift their way of thinking from absolutes and sovereignty to relativism/humanism/socialism." Dean Gotcher

“The guilty conscience is formed in childhood by the incorporation of the parents and the wish to be father of oneself.” Norman O. Brown Life Against Death

Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? Romans 6:16

“The most effective method for weakening the child’s will is to arouse his sense of guilt.”
“The most important symptom of the defeat in the fight for oneself is the guilty conscience.” 
Erick Fromm Escape from Freedom

If you can not destroy a persons faith in God, since he fears God, destroy his faith mechanism through the praxis of questioning authority. Dean Gotcher

“Social control is most effective at the individual level. The personal conscience is the key element in ensuring self-control, refraining from deviant behavior even when it can be easily perpetrated.” “The family, the next most important unit affecting social control, is obviously instrumental in the initial formation of the conscience and in the continued reinforcement of the values that encourage law abiding behavior.” Dr. Robert Trojanowicz The meaning of “Community” in Community Policing

“Unfortunately, because of the reduction of influence exerted by neighbors, the extended family and even the family, social control is now often more dependent on external control, than on internal self-control.” Dr. Robert Trojanowicz The meaning of “Community” in Community Policing

“...  the super-ego ‘unites in itself the influences of the present and of the past.’” Norman O. Brown Life Against Death

“It is a function of the ego to make peace with conscience, to create a larger synthesis within which conscience, emotional impulses, and self operate in relative harmony.” “When this synthesis is not achieved, the superego has somewhat the role of a foreign body within the personality, and it exhibits those rigid, automatic, and unstable aspects discussed above.” Theodor Adorno The Authoritarian Personality

“The superego is conceived in psychoanalysis as functioning substantially in the same way as the conscience.” “Superego development is conceived as the incorporation of the moral standards of society.” “Therefore the levels of the Taxonomy should describe successive levels of goal setting appropriate to superego development.” Benjamin S. Bloom Taxonomy of Educational Objectives: Book I Cognitive Domain

“This voice which really isn’t you but tells you the way the world works is a direct attack on creativity. We have to work to remove it.” “When we learn to silence the inner voice that judges yourself and others, there is no limit to what we can accomplish, individually and as part of a team. Absence of judgment makes you more receptive to innovative ideas.” Michael Ray Maslow on Management, Abraham Maslow, John Wiley & Sons, Inc, 1998. p. 223, 225

"Marx was more right than wrong."

    If you want a clear understanding of why America has degenerated to its current level of depravity you must know the Word of God, what it really says, and the process of the dialectic.  A "church growth," Rick Warren thinking "Christian" responded to my statement that Marxism is evil with "Marx was more right than wrong."  This attitude is reflected in almost all our current thinking.  What would have been unthinkable a couple of generations ago has now become the norm.

"He was more right than wrong."

    "He was more right than wrong." can be engraved upon the tombstone of a demolition expert, a test pilot, etc. It can be the sign at the entrance (or exit) of the garden of Eden.  Eve was right on all counts of perception, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil was good for food, pleasing to the eyes, and desirable to make one wise.  In the moment wrong can seem right and right can seem wrong.  In the long run, right is always right and wrong is always wrong.  Our perception can tell us what "seems to be right" in the moment but seeing the full picture we would understand it as being wrong.

    The art of fly fishing, say for trout, is the art of deception.  The object is to entrap the subject with his need of the moment.  What every fly fisherman hears from the first day he becomes aware of such a method of fishing is to "match the hatch."  In other words his best success in hooking the fish is to match as close as possible, the shape, color, action, etc. of the insect the trout is currently feeding on, his "felt" needs.  Two conditions help in producing a successful fishing day. The need of the fish to eat, and the shortness of time it has to discern whether what he is about to consume is real or not.  Many other factors apply as well such as any sight of danger by the fish.

The art of trout fishing is built upon the artcraft of deceit. The agenda of the fisherman, is to facilitate the environment in such a way as to limit the fish's ability to discern anything unusual, until it is too late for the fish.  By the standards of observation, it could be said, the trout was "more right than wrong," as you cook it up for supper.

A cookbook on humans, Human Relations in Curriculum Change, presents in glorious details the artcraft of manipulating the environment to capture America, and serve it up.

"In the eyes of the dialectical nothing is absolute or sacred, nothing is established for all times."  Karl Marx

"By dialectical I mean an activity of consciousness, struggling to circumvent the limitations imposed by the formal logical law of contradiction."  Norman O. Brown,  Life Against Death

“We must develop persons who see non-influencability of private convictions in joint deliberations as a vice rather than a virtue.”
Kenneth Benne,  Human Relations in Curriculum Change

"Whoever defines terms controls life." Dean Gotcher

INFLUENCE

an emanation of occult power held to derive from stars.
an emanation of spiritual or moral force.
the act or power of producing an effect without apparent exertion of force or direct exercise of command.
corrupt interference with authority for personal gain.
the power or capacity of causing or altering an effect by indirect or intangible ways. SWAY
to have an effect on the condition or development. MODIFY
under the influence. TO AFFECT
Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary

PRIVATE

restricted to the individual or arising independently of others "private opinion"
intended for or restricted to the use of a particular person, group, or class
belonging to or concerning an individual person, company, or interest
not general in effect "a private statute"
unsuitable for public use or display
Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary

CONVICTIONS

    "a strong persuasion or belief: the state of being convinced."
doctrine, dogma, certainty, assuredness, confidence, sureness, surety.
Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary

      Social engineering is the artcraft of creating an environment in which people will change the way they think and behave for the sake of social approval.  By liberalizing the climate, where a person is allowed to freedom to express their feelings toward authority, the fear of or respect for authority is removed ("e.g., if the adult goes away or loses his authority"). Thus a persons respect for or fear of authority figures becomes erased from their brain (brain washing) when they participate in such action (praxis―therapy).

“The negative valence of a forbidden object which in itself attracts the child thus usually derives from an induced field of force of an adult. If this field of force loses its psychological existence for the child (e.g., if the adult goes away or loses his authority) the negative valence also disappears.”
Kurt Lewin A Dynamic Theory of Personality: Selected Papers, McGraw Hill

    Social engineers know that by replacing this "induced field of force" (traditional family setting) with a permissive environment, a change in a persons perception of the world will take place. This is the stuff "force field analysis" is made of.

"Work done by Horkheimer in the thirties identified 'neurosis as a social product, in which the family was seen as a primary agent of repressive socialization.'"
Erich Fromm, Marx’s Concept of Man, New York, 1961, p. 133

“Parental discipline, religious denunciation of bodily pleasure, . . . have all left man overly docile, but secretly in his unconscious unconvinced, and therefore neurotic.”  “The bondage of all cultures to their cultural heritage is a neurotic construction.” “Neurotic symptoms, with their fixations on perversions and obscenities, demonstrate the refusal of the unconscious essence of our being to acquiesce in the dualism of flesh and spirit, higher and lower.”
 Norman O. Brown  Life Against Death

This is more easily done in a group setting. For the sake of social approval, (self preservation) people willingly participate in expressing their resentment toward authority if the environment is one in which such expression is encouraged. When people seek approval from others, (perceived dependence upon others for self preservation), participate in such behavior becomes easier.

"The individual accepts the new system of values and beliefs by accepting belongingness to a group."
Kurt Lewin in Human Relations in Curriculum Change

"One of the most fascinating aspects of group therapy is that everyone is born again, born together in the group."
Irvine D. Yalom Theory and Practice and Group Psychotherapy

“The individual is emancipated in the social group.” 
Norman O. Brown  Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History

“It is not individualism that fulfills the individual, on the contrary it destroys him. Society is the necessary framework through which freedom and individuality are made realities… only in a socialist society.”
Karl Marx

"When the dialectical method destroys the fiction of the immortality of the categories [God's Law over man, parents law over child, etc.] it also destroys their reified character [Fear of God above man, parent above child, etc.] and clears the way to a knowledge of reality [Social Eros.] Georg Lukacs History & Class Consciousness What is Orthodox Marxism? 1919 [brackets added]

“For one class to stand for the whole of society, another must be the class of universal offense and the embodiment of universal limits. A particular social sphere must stand for the notorious crime of the whole society, so that liberation from this sphere appears to be universal liberation. For one class to be the class par excellence of liberation, another class must, on the other hand, be openly the subjugating class." Karl Marx Critique of Hegel's Philosophy of Right

“If a paradigm is ever to triumph it must gain some first supporters, men who will develop it to the point where hardheaded arguments can be produced and multiplied (which eventuates in) an increasing shift in the distribution of professional allegiances (where upon ) the man who continues to resist after his whole profession has been converted is ipso facto ceased to be a scientist.” Thomas Kuhn The Structure of Scientific Revolutions

“Scientific knowledge, like language, is intrinsically the common property of a group or else nothing at all. To understand it we shall need to know the special characteristics of the groups that create and use it.” Thomas Kuhn The Structure of Scientific Revolutions

“A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.” Thomas Kuhn quoting Max Planck’s famous dictum.

“Change in organization can be derived from the overlapping between play and barrier behavior. To be governed by two strong goals is equivalent to the existence of two conflicting controlling heads within the organism. This should lead to a decrease in degree of hierarchical organization. Also, a certain disorganization should result from the fact that the cognitive-motor system loses to some degree its character of a good medium because of these conflicting heads.  It ceases to be in a state of near equilibrium; the forces under the control of one head have to counteract the forces of the other before they are effective.” Child Behavior and Development Chapter XXVI Frustration and Regression Kurt Lewin, McGraw Hill

"Once the earthly family is discovered to be the secret of the heavenly family, the former must be destroyed in theory and in practice."  Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis # 4

“A stranger, even if his name were God, who imposes commands upon us must be resisted, he must be killed because nobody can stand him.” Paul Tillich source: Leonard F. Wheat Paul Tillich's Dialectical Humanism 1970

"The critique of religion ends in the doctrine that man is the supreme being for man; .... The critique of religion ends with the categorical imperative to overthrow all conditions in which man is a debased, enslaved, neglected, contemptible being.” Karl Marx Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right'

"In the dialogic relation of recognizing oneself in the other, they experience the common ground of their existence." "the revolution that must occur is the reaction of suppressed life, which will visit the causality of fate upon the rulers." [patricide] "Therefore the dialectic of the moral life must repeat itself until the materialist spell that is cast upon the reproduction of social life, the Biblical curse of necessary labor, is broken technologically."   Jürgen Habermas Knowledge & Human Interest, 1968, publ. Polity Press, 1987. Chapter Three: The Idea of the Theory of Knowledge as Social Theory  emphasis added

"Man has only to understand himself, to take himself as the measure of all aspects of life, to judge according to his being, to organise the world in a truly human manner according to the demands of his own nature, and he will have solved the riddle of our time. But there is no other salvation for him, he cannot regain his humanity, his substance, other than by thoroughly overcoming all religious ideas and returning firmly and honestly, not to 'God', but to himself." Frederick Engels The Condition of England A review of Past and Present, by Thomas Carlyle, London, 1843 Deutsch-Französische Jahrbücher, 1844

“Prior to therapy the person is prone to ask himself  ‘What would my parents want me to do?’ During the process of therapy the individual comes to ask himself ‘What does it mean to me?’” Carl Rogers On Becoming a Person

"As I tried the sociometric system first on the universe and on the concept of God, its first manifesto was a revolutionary religion, a change of the idea of the universe and the idea of God.  The god of Jesus was further extended, the son 'withered away' until nothing was left except the universal creativity of the Godhead and only one commandment: To each according to what he is (an all-inclusive acceptance of the individual 'as he is).'"  J. L Moreno Who Shall Survive? (J. L Moreno, a Marxist, is known as the father of role-playing, a procedure used in all institutions of society today.)

"Self-actualizing people have to a large extent transcended the values of their culture. They are not so much merely Americans as they are world citizens, members of the human species first and foremost." A. H. Maslow The Further Reaches of Human Nature

"I’ve decided to get into the World Federalists, become pro-UN . . . One World.   A world government with world-shared values . . . Until sovereignty is given up little by little by “nations.” This is a realistic combination of the Marxian version and the Humanistic." The Journals of Abraham Maslow, ed. Richard J. Lowry, p. 132. June 1982

“. . . should fascism become a powerful force in this country, it would parade under the banners of traditional American democracy. . . ‘rugged individualism’” "...democratic type of relationship, the ability of the subject to appraise his parents objectively, as contrasted with an inclination to put the parents on a very high plane.” “The democratic alternative, humanitarianism, (is) the ability to like and dislike, to value and oppose, individuals on the basis of concrete specific experience;” “What is particularly important here is that recognition of one's own individuality is the basis for recognition of the individuality of everyone, and for the democratic concept of the dignity of man.” “ Only when the process of production is organized on a socialist basis, they argue, can there be true economic democracy, equality or management and labor, and a high national standard of living.” Theodor Adorno The Authoritarian Personality.

“In Escape from Freedom, Fromm offered the sado-masochistic character as the core of the authoritarian personality.” “The antithesis of the ‘authoritarian’ type was called ‘revolutionary.’” “By The Authoritarian Personality ‘revolutionary’ had changed to the ‘democratic.’” Martin Jay The Dialectical Imagination

" ... the central problem of democracy is not the discovery of some optimal solution or standard for ranking incommensurate values; ... The central problem of democracy is instead the formation of a somewhat vaguely defined ‘postconventional’ consensus through which everyone affected by a decision must be able to participate in reaching it.” Bronner Of Critical Theory and its Theorists

“We may call this new order by the name of democratic socialism but the name does not matter; all that matters is that we establish a rational economic system serving the purposes of the people.  Only in a planned economy in which the whole nation has rationally mastered the economic and social forces can the individual share responsibility and use creative intelligence in his work.  All that matters is that the opportunity for genuine activity be restored to the individual; that the purposes of society and of his own become identical.” Erick Fromm Escape from Freedom

“In a democratic society a patriarchal culture should make us depressed instead of glad; it is an argument against the higher possibilities of human nature, of self actualization.” “In our democratic society, any enterprise--any individual--has its obligations to the whole.” “Tax credits would be given to the company that helps to improve the whole society, and helps to improve the democracy by helping to create democratic individuals.” Abraham Maslow,Maslow on Management,  John Wiley & Sons, Inc, 1998. p. 66

“Changing a group atmosphere from autocracy toward democracy through a democratic leadership means that the autocratic followers must shift toward a genuine acceptance of the role of democratic followers.” “It is of utmost importance that the trainer of democratic leaders establish and hold his position of leadership.” “In a democratic process deviation is welcomed as a possible source of improvement in common ways of thinking and acting.”  Kenneth Benne Human Relations in Curriculum Change

"Public space becomes for liberals an extension of their private living room."
"Liberals tend to colonize all spaces they are in."
 Elizabeth Powers

“In the process of history man gives birth to himself. He becomes what he potentially is, and he attains what the serpent―the symbol of wisdom and rebellion―promised, and what the patriarchal, jealous God of Adam did not wish: that man would become like God himself.” Erick Fromm You shall be as gods: A radical interpretation of the old testament and its tradition 1966

Lenin hated the traditional family business.

"[A] more powerful enemy, the bourgeoisie [middle class-traditional family system], whose resistance … and whose power lies ... in the force of habit, in the strength of small-scale production." "Unfortunately, small-scale production is still widespread in the world, and small-scale production engenders capitalism and the bourgeoisie  continuously, daily, hourly, spontaneously, and on a mass scale." "... the peasantry constantly regenerates the bourgeoisie—in positively every sphere of activity and life." "... gigantic problems of re-educating ..." "... eradicating their bourgeois habits and traditions...." "... until small-scale economy and small commodity production have entirely disappeared, the bourgeois atmosphere, proprietary habits and petty-bourgeois traditions will hamper proletarian work both outside and within the working-class movement, …" "... in every field of social activity, in all cultural and political spheres without exception."

DIDACTIC PARADIGM CHANGED INTO A DIALECTICAL PARADIGM

Didactic:   1) man is not good, 2) he does not will to do good, 3) and his passions are not right.  Therefore man's heart must be change.  Individualism.
Dialectic:  1) man is basically good, 2) he wills to do good,  3) and his passions are right.  Therefore must make the environment healthy for man to actualize his goodness.  Socialism: The praxis (practice) of Patricide and Incest.

DIDACTIC PARADIGM

“Black is black and white is white. Neither torture, maltreatment nor intimidation can change a fact. To argue the point… serves no useful purpose.”  P.O.W. Major David F. MacGhee responding to brainwashing attempts by the North Korean , January 19th, 1953  

Right is right and wrong is wrong.  Chastening is justified only if there is wrong, therefore only with "right and wrong" is chastening justified.

"If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby."  Hebrews 12:7-11
"I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me."  "For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father who sent me, he gave me commandment what I should say, and what I should speak."  John 3:30; 12: 49
     "And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your father, which is in heaven." "For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother."  "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my father which is in heaven."  Matt.23:9; 12:50; 7:21

DIALECTICAL PARADIGM

    “The subject which will be of most important politically is mass psychology. Social psychologists of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that ‘snow is black'. The opinion that ‘snow is black" should be treated as a morbid taste of eccentricity. This science will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated”. Bertrand Russell  The Impact of Science on Society
    “We can choose to use our growing knowledge to enslave people in ways never dreamed of before, depersonalizing them, controlling them by means so carefully selected that they will perhaps never be aware of their loss of personhood.” Carl Rogers, as quoted in People Shapers, by Vance Packard, Bantam Books, 1977, reprint 1979.

All is gray therefore dialogue, not chastening, is justified; unity and peace is based upon the praxis (practice) of uniting upon men's opinions:

    "The philosopher Hegel said that truth is found neither in the thesis nor the antithesis [right or wrong], but in an emerging synthesis which reconciles the two [circumventing right and wrong through the use of dialogue—uniting upon men's opinions. Unity of mind is accomplished by focusing upon unity of interest]."  Martin Luther King Jr. Strength to Love  
    "Once the earthy family [chastening for doing wrong] is discovered to be the secret of the heavenly family [chastening for doing wrong], the former must itself be destroyed in theory and in practice [dialogue—there is no absolute right or wrong]."  Karl Marx, Thesis on Feuerbach #4.
    "We have to study the conditions which maximize ought-perceptiveness."  "Oughtiness is itself a fact to be perceived."  A. H. Maslow, The Farther Reaches of Human Nature.  
    "I have found whenever I ran across authoritarian students that the best thing for me to do was to break their backs immediately. The correct thing to do with authoritarians is to take them realistically for the bastards they are and then behave toward them as if they were bastards."  Maslow, Maslow on Management
    "Prior to therapy the person is prone to ask himself ‘What would my parents want me to do?’  During the process of therapy the individual comes to ask himself ‘What does it mean to me?’"  Carl R. Rogers, On becoming a person.
    "We recognize the point of view that truth and knowledge are only relative and that there are no hard and fast truths which exist for all time and places."  Benjamin S. Bloom,  Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book I: Cognitive Domain (1956)  Referred to as Bloom’s Taxonomy  p. 32

    "In the eyes of dialectical philosophy, nothing is established for all times, nothing is absolute or sacred."  Karl Marx:  
    "...'good teaching' is the teacher’s ability to attain affective objectives through challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and getting them to discuss issues."   Benjamin S. Bloom  Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book II: Affective Domain (1964)  p. 54
    "By dialectic, I mean an activity of conscious, struggling to circumvent, the limitations imposed by the formal-logical law of contradiction." Norman A. Brown in Life Against Death, 1959

    "The negative valence of a forbidden object which in itself attracts the child thus usually derives from an induced field of force of an adult. If this field of force loses its psychological existence for the child (e.g., if the adult goes away or loses his authority) the negative valence also disappears." Kurt Lewin; A Dynamic Theory of Personality, 1935

“Change in organization can be derived from the overlapping between play and barrier behavior.  To be governed by two strong goals is equivalent to the existence of two conflicting controlling heads within the organism.  This should lead to a decrease in degree of hierarchical organization.  Also, a certain disorganization should result from the fact that the cognitive-motor system loses to some degree its character of a good medium because of these conflicting heads.  It ceases to be in a state of near equilibrium; the forces under the control of one head have to counteract the forces of the other before they are effective.” (Barker, Dembo, & Lewin, “frustration and regression: an experiment with young children” found in Child Behavior and Development)

Cognitive Dissonance: “The lack of harmony between what one does and what one believes.”  “ The pressure to change either one’s behavior or ones belief.” Introduction to Psychology Ernest R. Hilgard, Richard C. Atkinson

“There is evidence in our data that once a change in behavior has occurred, a change in beliefs is likely to follow.”  Kurt Lewin

“It is usually easier to change individuals formed into a group than to change any one of them separately.”
 

When a child feels free to share his "ought's," both the authority of the parent and the fear of punishment are negated. Thus the patriarchal paradigm is moribund (dead) in the mind of the child―patricide is actualized. The child is "free" to be their own person. Praxis dialectic equals patricide.

“The guilty conscience is formed in childhood by the incorporation of the parents and the wish to be father of oneself.” "We must return to Freud and say that incest guilt created the familial organization."  Norman O. Brown Life Against Death

DEDUCTIVE VS. INDUCTIVE REASONING:

    Deductive Reasoning: It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God…. It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.... for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.  Matthew 4:4, 7, 10  
    "Deductive reasoning holds to a very high standard of correctness ... In a deductive argument, the truth of the premises is supposed to guarantee the truth of the conclusion; the truth of its premise guarantees the truth of its conclusion, there is no middle ground."  Garth Kemerling  

    Inductive Reasoning: "And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat." Genesis 3:6
    "... in an inductive argument, the truth of the premises merely makes it probable that the conclusion is true." Garth Kemerling
    According to inductive reasoning, used on personal and social issues, guilt is the consequence of the child learning to reason deductively.  This prevents the child from identifying with his true nature, his universal (carnal-social) nature. Deductive reasoning must be overcome if he is to be emancipated, if he is to be free to think and live inductively, to be his "true person," if he is to be able to find common ground with the world. This is the key to Globalism, the "New World Order" and "World Peace."

    If we had only known!   When children from a patriarch-structured family participate in an inductive reasoning environment, used to determine morals and ethics, they will always come home with condescension toward their family structure. The process, brought by the child back into the home, will produce added stress in the family, forcing the parents to either "crack down" to restore order or acquiesce to bring "peace" back into the home.  With enough support from a source outside the home (from an inductive reasoning institution or person, i.e. teacher, friend, etc.), along with an internal determination (stubbornness, strong will) by the child "to be their own person", the crisis-creating child will be able to force the parents to look outside the home for assistance.  If they turn any direction except to another deductive reasoning institution for assistance, the patriarchal home will experience dissolution.
    When social engineers talk about your child learning to love others, which on the face of it you would not identify as a problem, they are in reality teaching your child to hate! To hate you! The hate is not directed at you per se, it is directed at the way you think and the way you behave. Nevertheless it is hate!  And it will manifest itself in a most grievous way. Not only will your children behave wickedly, they will behave stubbornly.  While their body may be present before you, their heart is not, and a hollowness now exists―in your heart. "But we had our children's best interest in mind when we sent them there. If we had only known!  If we had only known!"  But we did know! No where in the Word of God does God tell us to experiment with our children (inductive reasoning).  We are to train them up, in a deductively, didactically, patriarchal home!
    Any intervention between the parent-child hierarchy by the community weakens if not destroys the parent-child patriarchal structure of the home. There can be no parent-child-community partnership if the parents are to develop in the mind of the children a patriarchal paradigm. "We must use social-environmental forces to change the parent’s behavior towards their children." Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality  Bloom used the Marxist Adorno's Weltanschauung (paradigm) to build his Taxonomy of Educational Objectives. Marxists books used since the 50's to train teachers both in public and private schools of education.

THE LAW

 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.  Matthew 5:17

 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law. Romans 3:31

 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.  Romans 6:15

 What shall we say then? is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: Romans 7:7

 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good. Romans 7:12

 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. Romans 7:14

 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: Psalms 19:7

 For this: Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Romans 13:9

 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. John 7:24

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

CHRISTIANITY AND DIAPRAX

by Dean Gotcher
October, 1997   (Revised 08-20-09)
(Diaprax = Dialectic Praxis)


And what concord [harmony] hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 2 Corinthians 6:15

            Belial and deviancy are synonymous.  Throughout the scriptures men of Belial were referred to as perverse, vile, wicked men, who taunted and bore false witness against the righteous for personal gain.  They were able to seduce whole communities into protecting and defending them, even to the death and, like thistles, would harm anyone who tried to remove them by normal means.  Their constant aim was to separate the children of God from His authority.  One word sums up their art craft—deviancy.

            Diaprax (the dialectic process acted out—praxis) and deviancy are likewise synonymous.  When it comes to morals and ethics, deviancy becomes the norm when one uses the dialectic process.  The person using it must deviate from any position they originally claimed was right and therefore become tolerant of, embrace, or become that which right classifies as wrong or evil.  The operative word under attack by the dialectic is the "negative," i.e. restraining and judgmental world  “not.”

            Whether it is Jesus Christ quoting scripture, “It is written. . .” and therefore "not" of man's opinions, i.e. by human perception, or the teacher telling her students that “two plus two is four” and can "not" have any other answer, i.e. all other responses are wrong, or the policeman reminding the youth that “It is illegal to use drugs,” or the employer informing his employee that he “is fired” because he did "not" do things right, or the parent inculcating their children about what “is right” and what “is wrong,” the word “not” always acknowledges accountability to a higher authority—whether it be to God ("I AM that I AM"), to the laws of nature, to the laws of the land, to the boss, or to the parent.

            By promoting the “right” to deviate from what higher authority says "is not," the dialectic process challenges accountability to higher authority, i.e. the one who "is.".  It “rationally” justifies, to its participants, the “I have my rights” attitude and the disrespect for authority so blatantly being manifested in society today.  Belial and the dialectic process are both the same.  When Christian ministries use the dialectic process to promote their ministry, as is being done today, they will always have to deviate from the Word of God to justify “their ministry.”

            When it comes to the Word of God, men of faith, when asked to justify their faith, can only respond with “It is written.” God’s Word is the only truly objective view of mankind.  It is His Point of view, God breathed (inspired).  It is not man’s point of view, private interpretation (dialectic), as are all the other religions of the world.

            Because God’s point of view is above man’s, when it comes to scripture hard or impossible to understand through “rational” temporal means, all one can say is “It is written.”  This kind of response is spiritual (inspired) and reveals Godly wisdom and is not dialectic reasoning (temporal-sensual) which leads to death.

    "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." 1 Corinthians 2:14

"For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe." 1 Corinthians 2:21

    "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. {reprobate: or, of no judgment." 2 Timothy 3:1-8

    "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." 2 Timothy 4:3, 4

            Inspired understanding responds with “I know” and is willing to admit when it can not explain God’s point of view to carnal satisfaction, yet responding with “nevertheless it is written.”  Dialectic understanding seeks to make God’s point of view equal to man’s point of view by responding with either “I feel” or “I think” or “How do you feel?” or “What do you think?” in matters of scripture not clearly understood.

            Almost five hundred years ago, Martin Luther wrote about the dangers of using human reasoning (the dialectic) to define God’s point of view.  “Miserable Christians, whose words and faith still depend on the interpretations of men and who expect clarification from them!  This is frivolous and ungodly.  The Scriptures are common to all, and are clear enough in respect to what is necessary for salvation and are also obscure enough for inquiring minds. . . let us reject the word of man.” (LW. V. 32, p. 217)

            “I think” and “I feel” (our opinion) is the gray zone of human reasoning which has always deviated from the Word of God so it could be used for human agendas.  When “Christian ministries” use the dialectic process to “advance” the work of God, they have become the messengers of Belial and not Christ.  As Luther would say “because they teach not Christ but human reasoning. . .  Woe to these lost and dreadful men of Sodom and Gomorrah!”  (LW. V. 44, P. 200)  These are dialectic priests, who have simply covered themselves with scripture, so they can seduce souls to support them, in an effort to justify their evil affections.

            “Team building,” is being used within the Church today.  It is dialectic.  Just question its use before any theology student, minister, or youth minister and see how quickly it is defended.  As in Baal worship, it will be more vehemently defended than the Word of God. Jesus tough (didactic) his "small group" of men, today, "ministers" dialogue (dialectic) with their small groups and call it being like Jesus.  This is deception and not of God.

            The verb “is” (because God says so in his word) destroys the dialectic process.  Therefore, to exist, the dialectic must seduce those of faith to question their faith in “I AM.”  God gives us all a measure of faith.  It is the master facilitator of the dialectic process (Satan) who always seeks ways in which he can seduce us (through our affections) into questioning our faith, so he can become the master of all things created.  The only way out of his grasp is in “I Am.”  Jesus Christ is “I AM,” “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”  There is no other name under heaven whereby we must be saved.

            Jesus never participated in the dialectic. He asked no man how he felt or what he thought in an effort to discover truth. He only asked for the facts. "Peter, who do you say that I am?" He only expected revelation from his Father to be the right source for answers. "And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." Matthew 16: 17, 18  The rock of the church is built upon God revealing himself unto his own not upon mans reasoned opinions of God. That revelation being: "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God." Matthew 16: 16

    Jesus is not a team building, consensus seeking, role playing, psychodrama, sociodrama, sociometric, group dynamics, relationship building facilitator looking for social harmony and environmental oneness, savior.  A look at Christian material will more than likely reveal most if not all of these Belial-dialectic methods in them.  Let’s put them to the side and get the Word of God out and preach and teach “It is written.”

James Coleman

            James Coleman, a socio-psychologist, earned his Doctorate at Columbia University, trained under the tutelage of the "Frankfurt School" Marxist Paul Lazersfeld.  He wrote Equality of Opportunity in 1966.  It was used by the Supreme Court to help them solve educational issue.  His books have had a major influence in our society, so a look at them is essential if we are to have an understanding of what has happened to our educational system.

            In 1957 Coleman wrote Community Conflict, a book on how conflicts arise in communities and how to control them in favor of a particular (socialist) outcome.  Controversies in a community, says Coleman, need “(1) the existence in the community of a few extreme activists, who gain moral support, and sometimes information, leaflets, etc., from national sources; (2) the existence of a national climate of fear and suspicion concerning internal subversion; (3) the lack of close and continued relations between school administration and community organizations representing conservative as well as liberal segments of the population.” If any one of these is missing, controversy will be modified and controllable.

            Without directly admitting that ‘progressive education’ is tantamount to Communism, Coleman writes “In school controversies, the issue of Communist subversion in the schools is one-sided; as long as it occupies the attention of the community, it is to the advantage of school critics.  In contrast, the issue ‘progressive education vs. traditional education’ offers not differential advantage to either side (unless, of course, progressive education can be identified by its opponents as ‘Communistic’)…” Coleman equated the strong mayor-council form of government as “dictatorial control (whether benevolent or tyrannical)” in favor of his “democratic” style of government-transformational Marxism.

            From the classroom (The Adolescent Society) to the school system itself (Public School-Private School) to politics (Equality of Opportunity), James Coleman, a student of transformational Marxist Kurt Lewin and Ralph Tyler, has played a major role in the restructuring of America, bringing it into the New World Order.

            In his book The Adolescent Society, a book by the way which Benjamin Bloom uses to build his educational Taxonomies (Cognitive and Affective), Coleman writes:  “In the traditional society each child is at the mercy of his parents.  The ‘natural processes’ by which they socialize him makes him a replica of them.”  “Strengthening the family to draw the adolescent back into it faces serious problems, as well as some questions about its desirability.”  “Equality of Opportunity becomes ever greater with the weakening of family power.”  “Rather than bringing the father back to play with his son, this strategy would recognize that society has changed, and attempt to improve those institutions designed to educate the adolescent toward adulthood.”  “In order to [improve those institutions], one must know how adolescent societies function, and beyond that, how their directions may be changed.”  “The family has little to offer the child in the way of training for his place in the community.”

            In Public School-Private School, Coleman writes:  “Public schools represent an orientation that sees the school as an instrument of the society to free the child from constraints imposed by accident of birth.”  Coleman “sees schools as society’s instrument for releasing a child from the blinders imposed by accident of birth into this family or that family.”  “Schools transcend the limitations of the parents’ disparate [different, dissimilar, diverse] cultural backgrounds.”  “They have been a major element in social mobility, freeing children from the poverty of their parents and the low status of their social origins.  They have been means of stripping away identities of ethnicity and social origin and implanting a common American identity.”  “The young are seriously at risk because of the decline in strength of the family and those institutions that spring from it.  It is important that government policy by made in full recognition of this risk and of potential ways of reducing it.”  [A National At Risk].  The reason children are at risk today, according to Coleman’s reasoning, is because they are under the influence of traditional-minded parents and teachers.

            Coleman’s values are not traditional but rather transformational.  Equality of Opportunity, Social Class, and Social Mobility were the concerns of his mentor, Ralph Tyler.  These are the goals of transformational Outcome Based Education, the Outcome being a socialist society—transformational Marxism on a global scale.

            Coleman worked hard to identify how a traditional-minded community seeks to protect its values.  He is instrumental in helping to identify forces of resistance and methods of neutralizing them.  So when his protégées (facilitators) come up to you, smiling and saying, “Trust us we are here to help you,” beware, your freedom is at risk.

Without Law There Can Be No Grace

            “It is Satan, the god of all dissension, who stirs up daily new sects, and last of all, which of all other I should not have foreseen or once suspected, he has raised up a sect such as teaches that man should not be terrified by the law but be gently exalted by the grace of Christ.” Martin Luther (Source: Ray Comfort’s sermon “The purpose of the Law in evangelism” in his tape series Hell’s Best Kept Secret.)

How to make the Gospel of non-effect—Preaching the Gospel without the Law and God’s Wrath against those who have broken it.

            "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;" Rom 1:18

            For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.  Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.  Be not ye therefore partakers with them.  (Ephesians 5:5-7)

The beast is the dialectic process incarnate, man’s fallen nature personified and symbolized.  The heart and soul of OBE, TQM, & STW is the dialectic process preparing the world for the beast’s appearance and God’s wrath upon all who participate.

            If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.  (Revelation 14:9-12)

Human Relations Christianity—A False Gospel

            A Hindu form of thinking is now being used to define the Word of God.  It simply focuses upon the affections (feelings) of God for his creation, disregarding the cognition (facts) of His Wrath towards sin.

"LET’S AGREE TO DISAGREE."

            “Let’s agree to disagree” is a phrase being used around the country these days.  It is the dialectic in short form.  I just tell those who use such verbiage, including deceived Christians, to use that phrase on God on the day of judgment and just see how far they get with it.

            Another response, for the here and now, can be, “Oh, I see, you’re one of those unprincipled people.”  Anyone who uses the phrase “Let’s agree to disagree” is an unprincipled person since they do not have a position they wish to stand on except ambiguity and all they want is for you to become like them, unprincipled.  If you agree to disagree with an unprincipled person you are simply justifying their ambiguity and are participating in the dialectic process yourself—kiss your faith good-bye.

"THAT’S JUST YOUR POINT OF VIEW."

            When one hears the response “Oh, that’s just your point of view” after having shared the Word of God concerning a social issue they need to respond with, “No, that is not my point of view.  It is God’s point of view, and not only am I going to be held accountable to it, so are you.”  The Word of God is God’s point of view.  We simply, by faith, accept it as the only true point of view.

            Since “It is impossible to please God without faith,” and “Faith comes by hearing and hearing from the Word of God,” and since none of us have crawled outside the creation and can say we see things from that point of view, God is the only one with a true point of view of who we are, where we came from, and where we are going.  Therefore we must trust His point of view, His Word, to be the truth.

            Christians need to remind themselves, and the group and the facilitator (even if he happens to be their Sunday School teacher or their minister), that everyone on the face of the earth will be held accountable to God’s “it is written” and not how we feel or others feel about his word or what we think or others think about it.  While facilitators may facilitate the Word of God with I feel and I think, men of faith preach and teach it with “It is written.”

            To make God’s point of view equal to man’s point of view makes one an enemy of the Cross.  Many Christians have been seduced, deceived, and manipulated by this satanic process simply because they desire to better relate with the world’s point of view.  This is foolishness.   How can souls, your included, be saved from eternal damnation if God’s Word is made of non-effect in the ears of man?  "Having eyes which are human eyes, and ears which are human ears" is what Karl Marx believed in and promoted.  If the "church" builds upon this paradigm then it has "eyes which can not see, and ears which can not hear," and is not of God, it is apostate. It is God’s point of view which really matters, not ours.

It seems to me to be an exercise in futility to protest and fight against the change in America, and the world for that matter. All governments are moving to a world system according to scripture, and the US is no different. And I think it will be more dramatic for Americans because the world government is nowhere near as tolerant as the US Constitution, so Americans will see things get worse as time passes towards the end.

But prophecy clearly shows us that all governments WILL fall, including America. There is nothing worldly worth saving nor can be saved by man. Only God could do that if He chooses but scripture seems pretty clear this place is done for. Besides, Jesus says to lay up treasures in heaven, not earth.

We look to a new heaven and earth, because this one will pass away.

I agree, & I am not encouraging anyone to protest or fight... All I am doing is providing information for others to inform themselves as to what is going on... That is what I believe to be one of the purposes of this forum, (& Dr. Johnson's ministry as well), as a means to learn about what is happening in this world so that the Remnant will be better prepared for the inevitable changes taking place. I do not understand how this article is promoting laying up treasures on Earth... Care to elaborate...?

From Freedom to Servitude - Part 1
The Power and Perversions of Laws
http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/009/1-servitude.htm
By Berit Kjos - March 27, 2009

"Watching the markets... two interlocking phrases immediately come to mind: Ordo ab Chaos, and Crisis Equals Opportunity. Ordo ab Chaos is a Latin phrase and the motto of the Thirty-Third Degree of Freemasonry.[1] It means, 'Order out of Chaos.'”[2] Carl Teichrib

"Never waste a good crisis." Hillary Clinton [see video]

"...the financial crisis will lead to the creation of a global central bank and a global single currency within 15 years."[3] Stephen Gallo

“Once a nation parts with control of its currency and credit, it matters not who makes that nation’s laws.”[4]  W.L. Mackenzie King [former Prime Minister of Canada]

"I set before you today a blessing and a curse: the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God... and the curse, if you do not obey...." Deuteronomy 11:26-28

During the Nazi occupation of Norway (1939-1945), my father joined the Norwegian resistance movement and was willing to die for his country. But when the post-war years brought creeping socialism, he became increasingly disillusioned. Finally he chose to immigrate to America, which shone like a beacon of freedom and opportunity across Europe's war-torn lands.

Entering New York's harbor some years later, we gazed in awe at the Statue of Liberty. But even as we ate our first hamburger soon afterwards, America was  changing. Dwight D. Eisenhower, our war-time hero, was now president. John Foster Dulles -- a founding member of the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) -- was his Secretary of State.

Like most Americans, we had no idea what was happening "behind the scenes." We didn't know that Dulles had been a Trustee of the Rockefeller Foundation -- or that he collaborated with Alger Hiss, an active member of the Communist Party, and had helped draft the preamble to the UN Charter back in 1945.[5]

Nor did we realize that our Secretary of State had chaired a 1942 Federal (later renamed National) Council of Churches conference. In an article titled Conforming the Church to the New Millennium, I summarized the conference report. While Hitler's armies were ravaging Europe, the Council used that devastating crisis as an opportunity to promote its agenda:

a world government of delegated powers
immediate limitations on national sovereignty
a [single] democratically controlled international bank
a universal system of money
worldwide freedom of immigration
even distribution of the world’s natural wealth.[6]
Does that sound familiar? Apparently that last point didn't originate with Obama!  Even Time magazine was shocked! Here's its summary of the report:
“Some of the conference’s economic opinions were almost as sensational as the extreme internationalism of its political program. It held that a ‘new order of economic life is both imminent and imperative' – a new order that is sure to come either ‘through voluntary cooperation within the framework of democracy or through explosive political revolution.’”[7]
Considering Alger Hiss' influence within the Council of Churches and friendship with Dulles [See note], it shouldn't surprise us. His Marxist goals fit right into a church establishment already infiltrated with socialist ideology.[8]  In spite of his Marxist aims, he served President Roosevelt both in the State Department and as his adviser at the 1945 Yalta Peace Conference, where much of eastern Europe was handed over to Stalin. His leftist ideology may even have prompted his assignment as the Secretary General of the United Nations Charter Conference in 1945 -- and, later, as president of the multimillion dollar Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.[9]

In our UN Chronology, you can follow the hidden threads toward world government. Notice that today's radical "change" simply means that we are nearing the completion of goals set long ago. As President Thomas Jefferson said,

“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms [of government] those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.”[10]

It's true! Unscrupulous leaders have traded the solid guidelines of our Constitution for evolving laws that conform to global standards and human greed. Since the Constitution was written for a nation that valued God's moral guidelines, it crumbled under the pressures of power-hungry globalists, financial transnationalists, and the deceptive promises of pragmatic socialists. They all saw God's unchanging Truth as an obstacle to their success.

To understand this radical shift, let's take a closer look at the three sets of laws that have influenced this nation -- both for good and evil.

1. Our Constitution with its Promise of Freedom

Whether Christian or not, most of our nation's founders based the Constitution on God's moral law. They knew that freedom to follow God would be essential to future prosperity.

In his 1796 Farewell Address, George Washington exposed the main threats to the authority of the Constitution:

"Of all the dispositions and habits, which lead to political prosperity, Religion [i.e. Christianity] and Morality are indispensable supports. ...[V]irtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government."[11]

Washington concluded with warning about the "mischiefs of foreign intrigue," the lure of "imaginary common interest," and the consequences of failure to "prevent our nation from running the course, which has hitherto marked the destiny of nations." In other words, if we don't follow God's ways and guard the foundations of this nation, it will be destroyed -- just like the Roman empire.

2. Evolving Laws and Global Treaties (See Total transformation)

True to socialist ideology, our current administration seems determined to control every aspect of life: speech, beliefs and values, education, food, health care, money, the way we serve God or each other, etc. May we, like the early disciples, have the courage and strength to "obey God rather than men." (Acts 5:29)

Most of us are familiar with the various new bills (omnibus, stimulus, budget, etc.) loaded with earmarks that Obama had promised to purge. Costing taxpayers trillions, they seemed designed to deepen, not resolve, the current financial crisis.

But that apparent fiasco fits the plans of socialist change agents such as Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. They -- like Obama four decades later -- knew how to engineer a crisis that would 'force change through chaos.'[12] Former federal prosecutor James H. Walsh explains their Marxist manipulations:

"Cloward and Piven held that poor people can only advance when society is afraid of them.... Their strategy to create political, financial, and social chaos that would result in revolution blended Alinsky concepts with their more aggressive efforts at bringing about a change in U.S. government. To achieve their revolutionary aims, Cloward and Piven sought to use a cadre of aggressive [community] organizers assisted by friendly news media to force a re-distribution of the nation’s wealth.....

"New York Mayor Rudy Guiliani called the Cloward-Piven Strategy 'an effort at economic sabotage.'.... Cloward and Piven were joined over the years by nouveau billionaires led by George Soros. Through his Democracy Alliance, they funded ACORN.....

"On the horizon are proposed taxes led by the Obama-sponsored Global Poverty Act that would tax every U.S. man, woman, and child $2,500 for a total of $845 billion to help the United Nations eliminate global poverty. The goal remains the same, to redistribute the wealth of the nation."[13]

In other words, social engineering is changing America along with the rest of the world! For example, Obama's Global Poverty Act calls for communitarian partnerships between the --

       1. Public sector (government, which writes the laws and sets the standards)
       2. Private sector (business, which supplies resources)
       3. Social sector (civil society, especially churches, which provide human servers trained in political correctness).
This three-legged system would be governed by globalist elites. Unlike communism, such a communitarian system would allow people to "own" their property, but both ownership and ideology would be governed, assessed and tracked through laws and regulations based on unthinkable global standards aimed at worldwide social solidarity. After all, Obama has agreed to "stepped up US-UN cooperation."[14]

Our old Constitution-based laws are rapidly being replaced by new laws that end virtually every freedom that we have treasured. This transformational legal system fits the UN's rising body of international laws as well as the 67-year-old vision of John Foster Dulles. But is this what Americans want? Or are most people too distracted by entertainment and Huxley's "feelies" to notice? Take a look at the road ahead:

a socialist world government to "coordinate" the crisis and guide the solution [See The emerging New World Order]

drastic limitations on national sovereignty [UNESCO's War Against National Sovereignty]

a [single] democratically controlled international bank and a universal system of money. [One World, One Money]

open borders and global migration based on UN decrees. [The UN Plan for Global Migration]

redistribution of the world’s wealth. [Smiling at Socialism & Scorning the Bible][15]

In this new system, "We, the people" of America will no longer count. Our government -- elected to serve us -- will become our 'masters.' Ashley Mote (an independent member of the European Parliament) shows us what happened in Europe, the model for the other planned "regions" under the UN:

"Even the EU's public face - the unelected commission - is part of the charade. Power does not lie with them. It lies with the senior staff running their departments.... We do not know what their budgets are, how they are financed, or who approves their costs. Indeed, we do not even know what powers they have been given, nor by whom.... The other 24 commissioners, each appointed by the other member states... are figure-heads. They take the flak in the public arena, and make announcements decided for them by their senior staff, with the guidance of the secret committees....

"The European Parliament sits below this vast superstructure... designed to create an illusion of accountable democracy. A condescending pat on the head for voters held in contempt.... In effect, the left has said to the multinationals: you can have your markets stitched up for you, if we can indulge ourselves in endless social engineering. Big business has agreed. The result is a largely supportive parliament both from the left and right of the political divide. The 'Americas' is moving in the same direction!"[16]

3. God's Unchanging Law and Judgments

The old Christianized Europe leads the way. Rejecting its Christian foundations, it has filled its spiritual vacuum with forces far greater than it can control without total repression. Ponder this recent example:

"A few years ago, the left-wing London Guardian newspaper called Sweden the most successful society the world has ever known. But Sweden today is being rocked by a large influx of Muslim immigrants.... Wide-open immigration policies... have made Malmo, which is now one-quarter Muslim, one of the most racially divided cities in Europe. Most Muslim immigrants are concentrated in one district, where the male unemployment rate is 82 percent. Crime affects one of three families in the city and **** has tripled in 20 years.... In one housing project in the district, fire and emergency workers will no longer enter without police protection.

"Malmo has been so accommodating toward immigrant Muslims that a local Muslim politician and imam has even declared, 'The best Islamic state is Sweden!'... Right-wing Swedish Democrats, who support limits on immigration, have been stigmatized by the left-wing Swedish media as fascist and bigoted.... 'I think the best prediction is that Sweden will have a Muslim majority by 2049, so we know where that country’s going.”[17]

America is marching to the same tune -- right into the embrace of the planned world government.
 
While most Americans still call themselves Christian, few can define the gospel or explain the holy character of the God they claim to know. Churches have replaced Biblical Truth with energizing entertainment, and Biblically illiterate members are being trained to follow group consensus, not the Word and ways of our sovereign God.
 
At a time such as this, we ought to "tremble at [God's] Word' [Isaiah 66:2] and fall on our faces before Him! For unlike us, our mighty Lord doesn't change! His laws are operational as well as eternal. The world may ignore them, but it can't escape the consequences. As He told us through Moses over three thousand years ago:
"...when you have eaten and are full, and have built beautiful houses and dwell in them... your heart is lifted up and you forget the Lord your God. ... you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth.’
"...if you by any means forget the Lord your God, and follow other gods... you shall surely perish. As the nations which the Lord destroys before you, so you shall perish, because you would not be obedient to the voice of the Lord your God." Deuteronomy 8:10-20

Demonstrating a patience that far exceeds mine, he told His beloved Israel, “'In returning and rest you shall be saved. But you would not." The rebellious people refused his gracious invitation. (Isaiah 30:15) So has most of the Western world.

Today that call still rings out: "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." (Matthew 11:28) What will we answer?

"I have set the Lord always before me;
Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved." Psalm 16:8

From Freedom to Servitude - Part 2
"Service Learning" through Soviet Brainwashing
http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/009/2-servitude-brainwashing.htm
By Berit Kjos - April 20, 2009

"Lenin outlined a program for an active participation by both children and adolescents in the building of socialism.... Socially useful work should serve as a school of collectivism."[1] Nadezhda Krupskaya, Lenin's widow and fellow-revolutionary

"...expand and strengthen service-learning programs through year-round opportunities ... in order to renew the ethic of civic responsibility and the spirit of community for children and youth throughout the United States."[2] Serve America Act (GIVE, H.R.1388), signed into law on April 21.

"Brainwashing is a system of befogging the brain so a person can be seduced into acceptance of what otherwise would be abhorrent to him. ... Facts and fancy whirl round and change places."[3] Edward Hunter, Brainwashing

"O our God... we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You." 2 Chronicles 20:12

Last March, North Dakota gave us a heart-warming demonstration of traditional voluntary service -- in minus 20 degree weather. As the rising Red River threatened to flood Fargo, willing volunteers gathered by the thousands. Before long, they had filled and stacked over 2 million sandbags to barricade the city against the raging waters. Christians prayed for victory over the forces of nature, and by God's grace, the make-shift dikes held.

About 6,000 volunteers of all ages had simply followed their conscience, worked together and met the need. Unlike President Obama's plan for government-directed "service," neither prayer nor God's comforting Truths were banned. Volunteers weren't hindered by trained facilitators and unconscionable boundaries. As the flood subsided, they were free to thank God together for the amazing victory.   

Traditional American volunteerism and self-giving service has served people around the world. But it may soon be replaced with a government system of mandatory service and re-education for all ages. Obama's signature on H.R. 1388 "Serve America Act," [See 2] will usher in a new era. While people of all ages will be recruited, the main focus will be on the youth. Words such as "uniforms," "youth corps," campuses" and "boarding" [i.e. "grouped together as appropriate in campuses for operational, support, and boarding purposes" SEC. 1516] bring memories of totalitarian government-controlled youth service.[4]

"Service learning" -- the heart of this evolving program -- is grounded in Soviet ideology. Banning Biblical sharing, it reflects Communism's "dialectical materialism" and notorious "re-education" camps. Its basic formula is simple:

1. Immersion into a group [collective] environment with diverse beliefs and values. For decades, our government has been guiding migration and assessing cities on their success in building "unity in diversity," i.e. social capital."[5]   Such facilitated oneness may sound benign, but the manipulative methods used to build socialist values undermine both personal freedom and family-taught convictions.

2. Dialogue led by facilitators trained to manipulate the diverse groups of servers (with their assortment of values) toward a new consensus. Edward Hunter's 1956 book, Brainwashing, gives us this glimpse of Communist mind control,

"They went about this in the 'democratic discussion' manner; this was the new principle of unanimity [i.e. consensus] ....  What was truth anyway? Nobody knew. What was false? ... Everyone couldn't be wrong. Could they? Weren't they all one team? A collectivity?"[6]

3. Practice (practical experience) that seals the dialectical group teaching in the minds of idealistic servers. Lenin understood this formula well. He said,

"...the young people shall engage in the practical solution of some problem of labour in common.'"[1]

The Soviet History of Service Learning

Today the seeds of Soviet ideology are sprouting across America. Truth, facts, logic and discernment fade -- drowned by a flood of mind-dulling, time-stealing trivia and distraction and choked by the tempting tentacles of dialectical compromise.

Lenin's Soviet education system was largely organized by Nadezhda Krupskaya, his personal companion, "co-worker," biographer, and "the founder of Soviet pedagogics." In her book, On Labor Oriented Education and Instruction, Krupskaya describes the roots of Soviet mind control:

"Lenin... said that the young generation should evolve a new, communist morality that would subordinate personal interests to general ones... that the younger generation should know how to achieve solidarity in their struggle.... Being a member of the Youth League means devoting one's labor and effort to the common cause...."

"The joint work of children should be particularly valued because it is the embryo of collective labor. ... If we attribute an educational role to socially useful work, then all children must be involved in it."

"...voluntary labour, irrespective of quotas, is labor performed without expectation of reward.... performed because it has become a habit to work for the common good."[1]

Remember, all Communist/Socialist labor was government controlled. Private enterprise and personal initiative were quenched, and all were forced to submit to the government-defined "common good." Within decades, Biblical morality had been replaced by sexual license and moral depravity, and personal despair.

After the second World War, young John Noble was trapped in the Soviet gulag system. Though an innocent American citizen, he was sentenced to hard labor in an arctic slave camp. Miraculously freed after a decade, he wrote the book, I Found God in Soviet Russia, which showed the sad reality behind socialist idealism:

"The young man and his wife were both fanatical Communists, graduates of the Communist Youth Movement where he had been a leader. They had both gone to youth camps from the age of fourteen. These Soviet youth camps are not conducted for recreation but involve hard work by young 'volunteers'....

"There is marked relaxation of sexual restraints in this atmosphere and many illegitimate children are born from the casual couplings of such summer youth camp excursions.... [These] children are raised to be zealous, dedicated Communists....They have no ties but their loyalty to the State, no allegiance to God or family, no principles to stand in the way of their performing any assignment given them.
"...children are also taught in school that they must constantly be on the lookout for 'reactionaries' [like America's 'right-wing extremists'?] and, further, must report any neighbor who talks against Communism or acts suspiciously, even if this may come to involve their own parents."[7]

Service Learning in America

The American version of service-learning was planned by socialist educator John Dewey almost a century ago. His formula, like Lenin's, is simple: affective learning (based on feelings rather than facts), followed by dialogue and group experience that helped seal the information in young minds. [See Chronology of the NEA]

Back in 1958, concerned congressmen invited Edward Hunter, an American expert on Communist brainwashing, to testify before the Committee on Un-American Activities in the House of Representatives. The Congressional transcript includes this testimony:

“I spent 30 years, a little bit more perhaps, in countries under various forms of Communist pressure and attack.  What I am witnessing in America is no different from what I saw in those other countries. ...

“I see, primarily, as part of this softening up process in America, the liquidation of our attitudes on what we used to recognize as right and wrong, what we used to accept as absolute moral standards.  We now confuse moral standards with the sophistication of dialectical materialism, with a Communist... theology which teaches that everything changes, and that what is right or wrong, good or bad, changes as well. ... There is no such thing as truth or a lie....

“The objective of Communist warfare is to capture intact the minds of the people and their possessions, so they can be put to use. This is the modern conception of slavery."[8]

Hunter's book, Brainwashing, reflects his interviews with victims of the Chinese "education reform." These survivors were trained through cruel but sophisticated "brainwashing" tactics to betray their nation, embrace socialism, "confess" lies, and serve the Communist propaganda machine.

Hunter described how each new "consensus" destroyed the victim's factual basis for resistance. And as minds were purged of Biblical hope and traditional values, unquestioning compliance became the norm:

"The long-range objective of brainwashing is to win converts who can be depended on to react as desired at any time anywhere. This is the inside-out meaning they give the word voluntary.... Even when he stands by himself, the truly indoctrinated communist must be part of the collective. He must be incapable of hearing opposing ideas and facts, no matter how convincing or how forcibly they bombard his senses. A trustworthy communist must react in an automatic manner without any force being applied. Only then is he the 'new Soviet man'..."[9]

It's happening today! Most American youth have abandoned the factual discernment that characterized America in the past. In many families, this change has already accomplished a socialist goal: to separate children from the traditional values of their parents or grandparents.

In 1971, fifteen years after Hunter wrote Brainwashing, Saul Alinsky's revolutionary manual, Rules for Radicals, was published. Alinsky, whose socialist disciples mentored Barack Obama, prepared the blueprint for the radical "community organizers" of the last three decades. He knew that "common involvements, "facilitated by "community organizers" such as Obama, would build the needed relationships:

"One of the factors that changes what you can and can't communicate is relationships. There are sensitive areas that one does not touch until there is a strong personal relationship based on common involvements. Otherwise the other party turns off and literally does not hear...."[10]
By 1992, American leaders were set to implement this system as part of mandatory education. In a letter to Hillary Clinton, America's First Lady,  Marc Tucker, President of the National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE) wrote:

"We think the great opportunity you have is to remold the entire American system for human resources development....  What is essential is that we create a seamless web of opportunities, to develop one's skills that literally extends from cradle to grave and is the same system for everyone... regulated on the basis of outcomes that providers produce for their clients, not inputs into the system."[12]

The word "outcome" reflects a planned result that's essential to social transformation. Continual assessments help refine the process. [See Reinventing the World]

Mandatory or Voluntary?

The original version of H.R. 1388 included a statement about developing "a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people." It was deleted. Perhaps the word "mandatory" stirred up too much criticism. In any case, those exact words had simply been moved to H.R. 1444, a less conspicuous bill. It states,

SEC. 4. DUTIES  (b) ...In carrying out its general purpose under subsection (a), the Commission shall address and analyze the following specific topics:
(6) Whether a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people could be developed, and how such a requirement could be implemented in a manner that would strengthen the social fabric of the Nation and overcome civic challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic, ethnic, and educational backgrounds."[13]
In any case, service learning will be mandatory for schools and institutions that receive government funding. The financial strings attached to this program will guarantee nation-wide participation from the start.
Many have wondered if H.R.1388 would include the Civilian Security Force that Barack Obama mentioned in a campaign speech in Colorado Springs. "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set," he said on July 2, 2008. "We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."[14]
Who would be the targets of such a civilian militia? What kind of domestic violence does he expect?

The Department of Homeland Security may have answered that question. On April 7, Secretary Janet Napolitano released a report titled "Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment." Suggesting that violence could erupt from "right-wing," anti-abortion, and "lone wolf extremists" as well as veterans, and others who are unhappy with today's government, it raised questions about the potential use of a civilian militia to silence concerned "resisters" across America.

Such intentional vilification of ordinary Americans reminds me of Hitler's shrewd strategy:

"The art of truly great popular leaders in all ages has consisted chiefly in... concentrating always on a single adversary.... It is part of a great leader's genius to make even widely separated adversaries appear as if they belonged to one category..."[15]

No "free speech" for "voluntary" servers?

Like Obama's Faith-Based Partnerships, this Serve America Act includes prohibitions that limit both speech and expressions of faith. Notice how God's timeless call to be a witness of His love is now summarized in negative word often used to vilify Christianity around the world:

(a) Prohibited Activities - An approved national service position under this subtitle may not be used for the following activities:
(2) Organizing or engaging in protests, petitions, boycotts...
(5) Engaging in partisan political activities, or other activities designed to influence the outcome of an election.... [that only seems to apply to those who might criticize the administration]
(7) Engaging in religious instruction, conducting worship services... constructing or operating facilities devoted to religious instruction or worship.... or engaging in any form of proselytization...."[2]

Through the ages, Christians have been faced with a common choice: Follow the crowd and culture -- or take a stand on your convictions. What will you choose?

"...as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." Joshua 24:15

"Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

From Freedom to Servitude - Part 3
Deceit, Delusion and the Destruction of America
http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/009/3-servitude-deceit.htm
By Berit Kjos - June 8, 2009

"...a concentration of world evil, of hatred for humanity is taking place and it is fully determined to destroy your society."[1] "Communism: A Legacy of Terror" by the respected Russian author, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, 1976.

"The Social Sciences will concern themselves with the rationalization of social control... the control of human behavior."[2] Rockefeller Foundation president Max Mason

"The federal government is likely within weeks to emerge as the principal owner of a storied U.S. corporation.... It will simultaneously serve as the company's regulator, tax collector, customer, pension backstop and lender."[3] Wall Street Journal

"We don't have to invade Iraq to find terrorists. They're right here.... Dr. Tiller is dead by an anti-abortion assassin, and this is the absolutely inevitable consequence of 35 years of anti-abortion fanatic rhetoric and intimidation...."[4] "Late-term abortion doctor decries Tiller killing"

"O our God... we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You." 2 Chronicles 20:12

Obama didn't lie when he promised CHANGE. He just didn't define it. Nor did he explain the basis for his HOPE. Today, with a bit of hindsight, the fog is lifting and we see the immediate future more clearly. Both words imply a shift away from the foundational truths and values of America. As Communist nations have determined, man's hope must rest in a useful worldly vision, not in the disturbing distraction of the Biblical God or other-worldly heaven.

Today, CHANGE and HOPE point to a New World Order -- a virtual utopia where the masses would eventually enjoy peace, pluralism, parity and the promise of universal welfare. Both slogans serve as bait to draw the masses into a web of deception.

As in Orwell's Animal Farm, today's spreading tentacles of Marxian socialism imply two classes of people: the equally poor masses and their wealthy "more equal" rulers. While the latter reign in luxury, the equally poor (new "middle class") may struggle to feed their families. [See box]

A recent article in the Russian Pravda titled "American capitalism gone with a whimper" has been spreading a somber view of this nation. Unlike its old Soviet-era namesake, this new Pravda may actually be telling the truth. It reminds us that the current transformation, which has now become all too visible, actually began long ago. Most of its message can be verified, as you will see in the links and facts that follow these excerpts:

"...the American descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple.... The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was.... Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

"First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture.... Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas than the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their 'right' to choke down a McDonalds burger... than for their constitutional rights....

"Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches... were for the most part little more than Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more than happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the 'winning' side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another....

"The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. ... His spending and money printing has been record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more than another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe....

"These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more than a whimper to their masters.

"The proud American will go down into his slavery without a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world how free he really is. The world will only snicker."[5]

The "Hidden" Oligarchs

We have listed many of these transnational power-brokers in "A Chronology of the Revolutionary Roots of the UN." Some are obvious participants in the seventy-year-long "partnership" between Russian Communism and leading American capitalists. As you ponder these examples, remember that today's transformation is no "conspiracy theory." It's really happening!

1913. President Woodrow Wilson wrote: "Some of the biggest men in the U. S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it."[6]
1917 (November 28) After Lenin had established his bloody reign in Russia, Colonel Edward Mandel House, President Woodrow Wilson's main advisor, cabled the president the following message from Paris: "There have been... published here statements made by American papers to the effect that Russia should be treated as an enemy. It is exceedingly important that such criticism should be suppressed."[7]

1922. New York city Mayor John F. Hylan said in a speech on March 26: "...the real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of self-created screen. It seizes in its long and powerful tentacles our executive officers, our legislative bodies, our schools, our courts, our newspapers and every agency created for the public protection."[8]

1933. President Franklin Roosevelt, 1933 said: "The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson... "[9]
 
l931. "We are at present working discreetly with all our might to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world." [Professor Arnold Toynbee, in a June l931 speech before the Institute for the Study of International Affairs in Copenhagen]
1947. Julian Huxley, the first Director General of UNESCO, wrote: "The task before UNESCO... is to help the emergence of a single world culture.... And it is necessary, for at the moment, two opposing philosophies of life confront each other from the West and from the East.... You may categorize the two philosophies as two super-nationalisms, or as individualism versus collectivism... or as capitalism versus communism, or as Christianity versus Marxism.  Can these opposites be reconciled...? ...through the inexorable dialectic of evolution, it must happen.... If we are to achieve progress, we must learn to uncrystalize our dogmas."[10]

l950. "We shall have world government whether or not you like it, by conquest or consent." CFR member James Warburg, speaking to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, February 1, l950.

1953. During a Congressional investigation Rowan Gaither, President of the Ford Foundation, made this startling admission: "We at the executive level here were active in either the OSS [forerunner of the CIA], the State Department, or the European Economic Administration. During those times, and without exception, we operated under directives issued by the White House. We are continuing to be guided by just such directives, the substance of which were to the effect that we should make every effort to so alter life in the United States as to make possible a comfortable merger with the Soviet Union." [11]

1966. Georgetown Professor Carrol Quigley, Bill Clinton's distinguished mentor and a lecturer on Russian history at the Industrial College of the Armed Forces, wrote: "There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so. I know of the operation of this network because I have studied it for twenty years, and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records."[12, p.950]
"One of Professor Quigley's most shocking revelations," wrote Dr. Stan Monteith, "was the fact that the American Communist Party was partly financed by J. P. Morgan and Company.... J. P. Morgan and his associates financed the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, conservative groups, liberal organizations, communist groups and anti-communist organizations." [13]

"The powers of financial capitalism have another far reaching aim," continued Dr. Quigley, "nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole."[12, p.324]

1976. "The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining supercapitalism and communism under the same tent, all under their control.... Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent." Seven years after sharing this observation, Congressman Larry P. McDonald, was killed. He was flying in a Korean Airlines 747 that was shot down by the Soviets. [Read more here]

 2001. "The Russians are building tremendous new nuclear/biological and chemical weapons systems--all with the assistance of US technology transfers. ... Further, the Russians are building huge underground nuclear bunkers and weapons production facilities in the Ural Mountains, clearly intended to function during a nuclear war. The US intelligence community (under both Republican and Democratic administrations) knows this and are actively covering for the Russians, so the American people won’t become alarmed.
      "Both Republican and Democratic administrations have been supplying the Chinese with high technology weapons systems for years, knowing that they, in turn, are supplying other enemies (Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, North Korea) as well."[14] Joel Skousen

Meanwhile, both parties have used the media to build and maintain a public perception of opposing positions on certain issues, while building consensus on issues that were critical to social change.[15]

Solzhenitsyn's Warning to the "Free" World

Few have explained this Communist-Capitalist partnership better -- or exposed Soviet terrors more effectively -- than Alexandr Solzhenitsyn. After criticizing Stalin in a letter to a friend, he was imprisoned for spreading "anti-Soviet propaganda" and served eight years in torturous Soviet labor camps (1945-1953). When he seemed to be dying of stomach cancer, a faithful doctor shared his testimony and apparently led Solzhenitsyn to put His faith in God. Exiled to Kazakhstan, he was restored to health. In his 1976 book, Warning to the West, he tells us that--

"...there also exists another alliance - at first glance a strange one, a surprising one - but if you think about it, in fact, one which is well-grounded and easy to understand.... [This] is the alliance between our Communist leaders and your capitalists."

"This alliance is not new. The very famous Armand Hammer, who is flourishing here today, laid the basis for this when he made the first exploratory trip into Russia, still in Lenin's time, in the very first years of the Revolution. He was extremely successful in this intelligence mission and since that time for all these 50 years, we observe continuous and steady support by the businessmen of the West of the Soviet Communist leaders.

"[Russia's] clumsy and awkward economy, which could never overcome its own difficulties by itself, is continually getting material and technological assistance. The major construction projects in the initial five-year plan were built exclusively with American technology and materials. And if today the Soviet Union has powerful military and police forces - in a country which is by contemporary standards poor -- they are used to crush our movement for freedom in the Soviet Union....

"Certain of your businessmen, on their own initiative, established an exhibition of criminological technology in Moscow. This was the most recent and elaborate technology, which here, in your country, is used to catch criminals, to bug them, to spy on them, to photograph them, to tail them, to identify criminals. This was taken to Moscow to an exhibition in order that the Soviet KGB agents could study it, as if not understanding what sort of criminals [political resisters]... would be hunted by the KGB....

"Lenin foretold this whole process. Lenin, who spent most of his life in the West and not in Russia, who knew the West much better than Russia, always wrote and said that the western capitalists would do anything to strengthen the economy of the USSR....

"Through the decades of the 1920s, the 1930s, the 1940s, the 1950s, the whole Soviet press wrote: Western capitalism, your end is near. But it was as if the capitalists had not heard, could not understand, could not believe this.

"Nikita Khrushchev came here and said, 'We will bury you!' They didn't believe that, either. They took it as a joke. Now, of course, they have become more clever in our country. Now they don't say 'we are going to bury you' anymore, now they say 'detente.'" Nothing has changed in Communist ideology."[16]

But everything has been changing in America!

Why? What can we do?

A key part of this planned transformation is Islamic terrorism, which has been fueled, funded and used by Russia. As in George Orwell's 1984, there are three main forces used to destabilize the world and create the dissatisfaction needed for planned control in a "single world culture."  [More on this topic]

Solzhenitsyn shows us the basic problem: rejection of Biblical Truth and values. "It is almost a joke now in the western world," he reminds us, "to use words like 'good' and 'evil.' They have become almost old-fashioned concepts, but they are very real.... These are concepts from a sphere which is higher than us."[17]

Indeed they are! "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil," warned Old Testament prophet Isaiah (5:20). 'Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good," wrote the apostle Paul. (Romans 12:9) Yet Biblical views of good and evil are fast disappearing from the American consciousness. They seem too intolerant and divisive in today's permissive, postmodern culture.

In contrast, the "evil" God warns us to shun is promoted everywhere: in books, movies, music, schools, ads, churches.... Since it fits the universal cravings of human nature, its collective acceptance brings an illusion of unity. Our leaders have been promoting it, for it sets the stage for mass manipulation.

The main strategy behind this transformation has been the dialectic process: group dialogue led by a trained facilitator toward an ever-evolving consensus. The result is a "dumbed-down" population of what Pravda called "sheeple" -- blinded masses following false shepherds. Our nation, once famous for its faith, freedom, wisdom and initiative, has learned to trust--

feelings instead of facts
opinions and impression instead of Truth and certainty
human cravings rather than God's authority
group consensus rather than God's Word
Rejecting the Shepherd, we lost our way. America hardly noticed the unseen forces that misled her. But it's not surprising, for "we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness...." Ephesians 6:12

Solzhenitsyn points us to the solution: "...we have to recognize that the concentration of World Evil and the tremendous force of hatred is there and it's flowing from there throughout the world. And we have to stand up against it...."[1]

"Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." Ephesians 6:13

"The common enemy of humanity is man.
In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up
with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming,
water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these
dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through
changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome.
The real enemy then, is humanity itself."
- Club of Rome,
premier environmental think-tank,
consultants to the United Nations

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"We need to get some broad based support,
to capture the public's imagination...
So we have to offer up scary scenarios,

is between being effective and being honest."
- Prof. Stephen Schneider,
Stanford Professor of Climatology,
lead author of many IPCC reports

"In Nature organic growth proceeds according
to a Master Plan, a Blueprint. Such a ‘master plan’ is
missing from the process of growth and development of
the world system. Now is the time to draw up a master plan for
sustainable growth and world development based on global
allocation of all resources and a new global economic system.
Ten or twenty years form today it will probably be too late."
- Club of Rome,
Mankind at the Turning Point

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"We need a new paradigm of development in
which the environment will be a priority.
World civilization as we know it will soon end.
We have very little time and we must act.
If we can address the environmental problem,
it will have to be done within a new system, a
new paradigm. We have to change our mindset,
the way humankind views the world."
- Mikhail Gorbachev,
founder of Green Cross International

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"The concept of national sovereignty has been immutable,
indeed a sacred principle of international relations.
It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to
the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation."
- UN Commission on Global Governance report

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Democracy is not a panacea. It cannot organize everything and
it is unaware of its own limits. These facts must be faced squarely.
Sacrilegious though this may sound, democracy is no longer well
suited for the tasks ahead. The complexity and the technical nature
of many of today’s problems do not always allow elected
representatives to make competent decisions at the right time."
- Club of Rome,
The First Global Revolution

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"The emerging 'environmentalization' of our civilization
and the need for vigorous action in the interest of the entire global
community will inevitably have multiple political consequences.
Perhaps the most important of them will be a gradual change
in the status of the United Nations. Inevitably, it must
assume some aspects of a world government."
- Mikhail Gorbachev,
State of the World Forum

"We require a central organizing principle - one agreed to voluntarily.
Minor shifts in policy, moderate improvement in laws and regulations,
rhetoric offered in lieu of genuine change - these are all forms of
appeasement, designed to satisfy the public’s desire to believe that
sacrifice, struggle and a wrenching transformation
of society will not be necessary."
- Al Gore,
Earth in the Balance

"Adopting a central organizing principle...
means embarking on an all-out effort to use every
policy and program, every law and institution...
to halt the destruction of the environment."
- Al Gore,
Earth in the Balance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound
reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world
has ever experienced a major shift in the priorities of both
governments and individuals and an unprecedented
redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift
will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences
of every human action be integrated into individual and
collective decision-making at every level."
- UN Agenda 21

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"The current course of development is thus clearly unsustainable.
Current problems cannot be solved by piecemeal measures.
More of the same is not enough. Radical change from the
current trajectory is not an option, but an absolute necessity.
Fundamental economic, social and cultural changes that
address the root causes of poverty and environmental
degradation are required and they are required now."

which is nature's proper steward and society's only hope."

"Little by little a planetary prayer book is
thus being composed by an increasingly united
humanity seeking its oneness. Once again,
but this time on a universal scale, humankind is
seeking no less than its reunion with 'divine,'
its transcendence into higher forms of life. Hindus
call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly
see no difference between our earth and the divine.
This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon
humanity, as we are about to enter our cosmic age
and become what we were always meant to be:
the planet of god."

Does your 'Mental Health' meet global standards?

http://endtimesandcurrentevents.freesmfhosting.com/index.php?action=post;board=15.0
by Berit Kjos - September 2003

Part 1: Legalizing Mind Control

“Principles of mental health cannot be successfully furthered in any society unless there is progressive acceptance of the concept of world citizenship."1 The International Congress on Mental Health, 1948.
 
"...the subject which will be of most importance politically is Mass Psychology.... The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for a generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen. As yet there is only one country which has succeeded in creating this politician’s paradise.”2  Bertrand Russell, The Impact of Science on Society
Would the American people allow government control and collectivism to replace freedom and individualism? You bet! So would the rest of the world. This social transformation is well under way, and the masses simply flow with the change.3 " [See "Brainwashing in America"] Planned over a century ago, the framework for managing and monitoring this worldwide revolution was in place by 1945.

Like the mythical Phoenix rising out of its ashes, the United Nations emerged from the fiery devastation of World War 2 as a beacon of light to utopian humanists and their hopeful followers. Within a year after Communist leader Alger Hiss presided over its birth, some of its most powerful agencies had been established. Julian Huxley (brother of Aldous) led the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). And Canadian psychiatrist Brock Chisholm laid the foundation for the World Health Organization (WHO).

The two socialist Director-Generals shared a common vision of a tightly controlled global community, but Dr. Chisholm summarized it best. Ponder his words, for they exposed a global plan for "peace" designed to conform the "mental health" of all people to his radical mission. " Notice the villains in this crusade:
"The responsibility for charting the necessary changes in human behavior rests clearly on the sciences working in that field. Psychologists, psychiatrists, sociologists, economists, and politicians must face this responsibility....
     "Can we identify the reasons why we fight wars...? Many of them are easy to list -- prejudice, isolationism, the ability to emotionally and uncritically to believe unreasonable things....
     "The only psychological force capable of producing these perversions is morality, the concept of right and wrong...   "For many generations we have bowed our necks to the yoke of the conviction of sin. We have swallowed all manner of poisonous certainties fed us by our parents, our Sunday and day school teachers....
     "...it has long been generally accepted that parents have perfect right to impose any points of view, any lies or fears, superstitions, prejudices, hates, or faith on their defenseless children. It is, however, only recently that it has become a matter of certain knowledge that these things cause neuroses, behavior disorders, emotional disabilities, and failure to develop to a state of emotional maturity which fits one to be a citizen of a democracy....
     "Surely the training of children in home and schools should be of at least as great public concern as their vaccination for their own protection.... "Individuals who have emotional disabilities of their own, guilts, fears, inferiorities, are certain to project their hates on to others... They are a very real menace... Whatever the cost, we must learn to live in friendliness and peace with... all the people in the world...."
     "There is something to be said... for gently putting aside the mistaken old ways of our elders if that is possible. If it cannot be done gently, it may have to be done roughly or even violently.4
Those "poisonous certainties" include all the unchanging truths and values that can't be compromised. That's why Biblical Christianity was -- and continues to be -- incompatible with the world's standards for mental health. Many who refuse to conform to the evolving guidelines for tolerance, inclusiveness, group dialogue and adaptability to the UN plan for "continual change" are facing severe consequences.5 [See "Ban truth, reap tyranny"]

A WHO (World Health Organization) agency named "Nations for Mental Health" was established to guide the national branches of this global network founded by Dr. Chisholm. Its website tells us that "Governments will be assisted to formulate, implement, monitor and evaluate mental health policies...." These “policies should enable all individuals whose mental health is disturbed or whose psychological balance may be compromised to obtain services adapted to their needs, and to promote the optimal development of the mental health of the population."6
Do you wonder how nations will define, measure, monitor and promote "the optimal mental health of the population"? It starts with subtle, even secret, legislation. Back in 1960, Dr. Lewis Alesen, former surgeon and president of California Medical Association, wrote this timely warning:

"... the proponents of the mental health program have been quick to elaborate a series of legislative proposals.... This is the age-old subterfuge of the collectivist, whose only solution for any problem, be it economic, social or political, is the passage of another law, the imposition of another tax, and the establishment of another bureau."7

He is right. Year after year, new laws that widen the web of surveillance -- and new regulations that ban "hate," "intolerance" and other broad and ambiguous threats to solidarity  -- have been building an inescapable framework for control.

"We have a clear blueprint in place," announced Surgeon-General David Satcher at the "National Healthy People Consortium" meeting in 1998. "Currently, 47 states are actively involved in Healthy People 2000 and 'Healthy City and Healthy Community' initiatives are being pursued throughout the country. Hundreds of national organizations have reviewed the Year 2000 objectives and have adopted them as their own. ... No priority yet has generated as much interest and enthusiasm as this one on mental health..."

"...our efforts will be focused on maintaining a system of global health surveillance," he continued. "Healthy People 2010 is the United States' contribution to the World Health Organization's call to the nations of the world to renew their commitment to health for all."8 [Emphasis added]

On April 29, 2002, President George W. Bush added his support to this massive network by signing an Executive Order with the misleading title, "President's New Freedom Commission on Mental Health."  It established a commission which bound the Departments of Health and Human Services, Education and Labor together in a common quest for "the desired outcomes of mental health care, which are to attain each individual's maximum level of employment, self-care, interpersonal relationships, and community participation."9 [Emphasis added]

That may sound fine to some of you. After all, mental illness has devastated countless lives and families around the world. But this vast new mental surveillance and remediation program reaches far beyond actual mental illness. Instead of informing tax-payers, its nice-sounding goals and promising titles seem designed to hide the truth, pacify the masses and prevent opposition. In his 1960 book, Mental Robots, Dr. Lewis A. Alesen, described this age-old tactic:

"Most of the almost innumerable books, pamphlets, and other publications issued by the sponsors of the mental health program are purposely and craftily disingenuous, disguising its real and ultimate purpose: ... the ultimate reduction of every individual in this world, except the favored few who conceive of themselves as possessed of an incomparable genius in their ability to direct the affairs of others, into... a common servile obeisance to his master, the State...."10

President Bush assures us that his new "Freedom Commission" (subtitled "Achieving the Promise: Transforming Mental Health Care in America") would "follow the principles of Federalism." Instead, it actually paves the way for an official cradle-to-grave behavioral modification and monitoring system that would turn those wise federalist principles upside-down. To "ensure that its recommendations would promote innovation, flexibility, and accountability at all levels of government" this Commission need only "respect" -- not accept or acknowledge --"the constitutional role of the States." That's not the Federalism guaranteed in our Constitution.11

Eight months after President Bush signed this Executive Order, his new "Freedom Commission on Mental Health" presented its report. Like the Homeland Security Act, the report focused on "prevention." To globalist managers who would conform our thinking to a communitarian ideal, prevention implies a continual program of assessing, monitoring and molding every mind -- before any evidence of "unhealthy" thinking appears. The following excerpts from its "Goal 4: Early Mental Health Screening, Assessment and Referral to Services" presents the persuasive "scientific" evidence needed to gain public support:

"New understanding of the brain indicates that early identification and interventions can sharply improve outcomes and that longer periods of abnormal thoughts and behavior have cumulative effects and can limit capacity for recovery....
      "Since children develop rapidly, delivering mental health services and supports early and swiftly is necessary to avoid permanent consequences and to ensure that children are ready for school. Emerging neuroscience highlights the ability of environmental factors to shape brain development and related behavior...
      "Early interventions, such as the Nurse-Family Partnership,12  and educational efforts can help a greater number of parents, the public, and providers learn about the importance of the first years of a child's life and how to establish a foundation for healthy social and emotional development."
      "A coordinated, national approach to these issues will help eliminate social and emotional barriers to learning.... More effort is needed to heighten public awareness of the developmental requirements for children's social and emotional well-being...."13
What is meant by "eliminate social and emotional barriers to learning"? Might it include Christian faith and a Biblical view of right and wrong? Or parental objections to government interference?12 Or the constitutional rights that protect religious freedom?

If so, it would match Dr. Chisholm's blueprint for "mental health." You read some of the excerpts earlier. In that 1946 message (quoted earlier), the WHO pioneer asked, ""Can such a program of re-education... be charted?"

"The answer is yes, and each year brings us closer to this sobering reality.

But we shouldn't be surprised. The Bible describes a time ahead when His people will face unthinkable hatred and persecution from a world government determined to wipe out Biblical Christianity and all other obstacles to its absolute control. When that time comes, there will be only one place to hide: in Jesus Christ. Between now and then, let's pray for God's guidance and seek to awaken as many people as possible to the coming challenges to faith and freedom.

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed....
'Be still, and know that I am God!"  Psalm 46:1-2, 10

Part 2: Justifying Mind Control
Recent history of the "prevention" side of "Mental Health"
http://endtimesandcurrentevents.freesmfhosting.com/index.php?action=post;board=15.0
by Berit Kjos, 2003

"Americans today are being deluged with...proposals by federal, state, and local governments classified under the broad general and disarmingly innocent title of 'The Mental Health Program.'... [1]  Mental Robots
 
"...absolute behavior control is imminent.... The critical point of behavior control, in effect, is sneaking up on mankind without his self-conscious realization that a crisis is at hand. Man will... never self-consciously know that it has happened."[2] Raymond Houghton, ASCD (curriculum arm of the NEA), 1970
"An Iceberg presents only one tenth of its deadly mass above the ocean’s surface," wrote Dr. Alesen in Mental Robots (1960). "So it is with this pernicious so-called mental health program."[1]  Alesen, a former surgeon who served as president of the California Medical Association in the 1950s, went on to describe the growing web of government control aimed at eliminating "barriers" to global oneness.
 
His conclusion? The revolutionary pioneers in the global "mental health" movement showed little concern for the standard forms of mental illness. Instead, their "therapy" would target the sick masses of humanity -- with the main focus on the misguided individuals who take their stand on the uncompromising truths of the Bible.
 
Their mass psychology has already changed our world. Have you wondered why we suddenly live in a "postmodern" world with little tolerance toward truth or traditional authorities? Or why France, Sweden and Canada are banning offensive Scriptures? Or why traditional morality means nothing to today's consensus-trained youth? [See "Ban truth; Reap Tyranny"]
 
The war against Christian symbols and holidays may be the most obvious symptom. God has been banned from Christmas celebrations, art projects, seasonal songs and American history. Even a first-grader's personal prayer has led to ridicule and reproof.  How did this nation slide so far from its foundations?
 
Part of the answer is found in the new usage of a familiar word: "prevention." Decades ago, humanist visionaries twisted its focus 180 degrees. No longer directed against sexual immorality and occult seductions, "prevention" would instead open the door to forbidden thrills by blocking interference from old-fashioned parents, pastors and teachers.
 
In other words, prevention would be a key to social control and communal transformation. Just as the U.S. Homeland Security department uses the word prevention to justify extensive surveillance of ordinary citizens, so our U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and Education (DOE) -- and their global partners-- use prevention to mold the views and values of our children.
 
"[Our objective] will require a change in the prevailing culture--the attitudes, values, norms and accepted ways of doing things,"[3] said Marc Tucker, the master-mind behind today's global school-to-work system.
 
Remember (from Part 1) the words of Dr. Brock Chisholm, the first head of the World Health Organization (WHO). He laid the blame for war and human conflict squarely at the feet of parents and Sunday schools teachers who -- from the beginning -- fed their children the "poisonous certainties" of the Bible. An active Unitarian who despised God's truths, he asked a suggestive question:
 "Can we identify the reasons why we fight wars...?  Many of them are easy to list --prejudice, isolationism, the ability to emotionally and uncritically believe unreasonable things....  
      "When the other [infectious diseases] were attacked at the preventative level, some martyrs had to be sacrificed to the cause of humanity, because reactionary forces fought back. Ignorance, superstition, moral certainties... resisted through anti-reform organizations, religious and political pressure groups, even political parties."[4]
Chisholm's friend, Alger Hiss, agreed. In 1948, the infamous Soviet spy published Chisholm's message on mental health in his socialist journal, International Conciliation. Hiss, then president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, added his own Preface which showed the involvement of the Rockefeller Foundation in the mental health movement.[5]
 
Earlier, another loyal friend had launched a new journal called Psychiatry,  which would gain immense prestige by the end of the century. Its owner, US psychiatrist Harry Stack Sullivan, also published Chisholm's message.[4]
 
Dr. Sullivan and Dr. Chisholm had been working closely with the British Brigadier-General John Rawlings Rees. Dr. Rees had helped found the Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology, the birthplace of the infamous Tavistock Institute for Human Relations [See "Brainwashing in America"]. As military officers, all three had been involved in psychological research using their respective armies. All wanted to know how conflict, fear and psychological trauma could be used to manage large human populations.
 
The three psychiatrists represented three nations -- the UK, USA and Canada. Together, they mapped the course for the world's mental health management system by the light of their own socialist vision of global conformity.[6]  
 
Dr. Rees had envisioned a global NGO (non-governmental organization) that would network with political and civic leaders around the world. His leadership led to the birth of the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH) in 1948. It would "enjoy consultative relationship with several UN agencies and... national groups" but remain free from government oversight. Its purpose: "To promote among all peoples and nations the highest possible level of mental health... in its broadest biological, medical, educational, and social aspects."[7]
 
Dr. Chisholm, Margaret Mead (the federation’s second president) and other social scientists from ten countries wrote its founding document, "Mental Health and World Citizenship."[7] Notice their attitude toward traditional values:
       "Studies of human development indicate the modifiability of human behaviour throughout life, especially during infancy, childhood and adolescence.... The social sciences and psychiatry also offer a better understanding of the great obstacles to rapid progress in human affairs....
       "Social institutions such as family and school impose their imprint early.... It is the men and women in whom these patterns of attitude and behaviour have been incorporated who present the immediate resistance to social, economic and political changes. Thus, prejudice, hostility or excessive nationalism may become deeply embedded in the developing personality... often at great human cost....
       "...change will be strongly resisted unless an attitude of acceptance has first been engendered."[8]
Today, more than half a century later, that "attitude of acceptance" has been built. Nations around the world are fast conforming to the pattern set in the 1940s. The global network of "mental health" partners is working to prevent anything that would hinder "positive" collective thinking in the rising global village. Few notice its tentacles reaching into community health programs and civil society in over 130 nations around the world.[9]

Pushed by this massive system, our communities are changing fast. Ismail Serageldin, Vice President of the World Bank, calls cities "the vectors of social change and transformation"[10] and so they are. That's where schools, health agencies, private institutions, the media, social activists and other members of "civil society" strive together to promote "progress" and to produce "world citizens" for the envisioned 21st century community. [See "The Habitat II Agenda"]

Mass immigration (planned back in the 1940s) and multicultural conflicts have added to the urgency, and the intentional crisis has helped promote pre-planned solutions. Today, strategies for social change such as group thinking, conflict resolution, consensus building and continual compromise are becoming the norm. All are based on the dialectic process used in the former Soviet Union to conform minds to Soviet ideology.[11]

Small wonder Dr. Satcher, former U.S. Surgeon General, showed special interest mental health. "No priority yet has generated as much interest and enthusiasm as this one on mental health," he announced in 1998. "...our efforts will be focused on maintaining a system of global health surveillance."[12]

Dr. Richard Carmona, the new U.S. Surgeon General appointed by President George W. Bush, seems to be following the same plan. In a speech at the American Psychological Association's 2003 Annual Convention in Toronto, he asked for help in raising "the public's mental health literacy."

"Until we can say the words 'public health' and everybody thinks of that as including mental health, we will not have a complete health-care system," Dr. Carmona told the crowd of psychologists. "I won't be satisfied until we achieve parity."[13]

"My agenda is prevention," Cardona informed the U.S. National Institute on Health. "We need to become a prevention-oriented society — one that accepts social responsibility, makes good decisions. Things like not smoking, increasing physical activity and eliminating risky behaviors are very simple, cost-effective measures that can have a huge impact on our society. After all, the lifestyles that we are creating today are what our children and grandchildren will inherit."[14]

His argument rings true. Good medical doctors naturally encourage prevention. They would want their patients to maintain their health and strength. But when globalist "change agents" step into the picture with their psycho-social strategies -- calling their agenda "prevention" in order to gain your approval -- they bring oppression instead of peace.

Cardona mentioned positive life-style changes such as exercise and not smoking. Those are good suggestions. But when government officials assume the right to guide our personal lives, where else might they lead us?  Could they mandate participation in the consensus process through government-funded "service learning" and other manipulative "lifelong learning" programs? Actually, it's already happening -- just as it happened in the Soviet Union long ago. [15]

Under the new system, noncompliant individuals would be caught and disciplined, for the web of surveillance and remediation is becoming virtually inescapable. In Part 1, you saw that President Bush's "Freedom Commission on Mental Health" would involve continual assessments and monitoring of human resources. Children classified as loners, independent thinkers, poor or uncooperative team members (unwilling to conform to the group) would be "at risk" of mandatory remediation. Ultimately, all people and institutions would be held accountable to the intrusive national and international standards for positive mental health.

Promoted as prevention, such controls might even seem right. After all, it's for the "common good." And (as you will see in Part 3) in a world dulled by feel-good thrills and the sensual seductions of the media, the masses will barely notice the loss of their freedom.

"...the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
     "But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry." 2 Timothy 4:3-5

Steps toward Global Mind Control
under the banner of "Mental Health" and Education

1909. Five years after his release from a primitive "insane asylum," Clifford Beers, formed the U.S. National Committee for Mental Hygiene" and called for a network of mental hygiene societies throughout the world."1
1910. The Eugenics Record Office in Cold Spring Harbor in New York was funded by the Carnegie Institute, and would receive funding from the Rockefeller Foundation three years later. "The Rockefeller Foundation also will fund Nazi Dr. Ernst Rudin's eugenics research at the Kaiser Wilhelm Brain Research Institute in Berlin. [See 1932]" [Dr. Dennis L.Cuddy]

1916. In Democracy and Education, John Dewy wrote, "There is always the danger that increased personal independence will decrease the social capacity of an individual. In making him more self-reliant, it may make him more self-sufficient.... It often makes an individual so insensitive in his relations to others as to develop an illusion of being really able to stand and act alone -- an unnamed form of insanity which is responsible for a large part of the remedial suffering of the world."2, Cuddy page 13.
 
1918. In The Science of Power, Benjamin Kidd wrote, "The main cause of those deep diving differences which separate peoples and nationalities and classes from each other and which prevent or stultify collective effort in all its most powerful forms... could all be swept away if civilization put before itself the will to impose on the young the ideal of subordination to the common aims of organized humanity... So to impose it has become the chief end of education in the future. ... Give us the Young and we will create a new mind and new earth in a single generation."
    Kidd goes onto quote Masonic Carbonari leader Guiseppe Mazzini (1805-1872): "Your task is to form the universal family.... Education, this is the great word which sums up our whole doctrine. [From Mazzini's On the Duties of Man].  According to Dennis Cuddy, Kidd emphasizes Mazzini message that "education is addressed through emotion to the moral faculties in the young and instruction to the intellectual (faculties)." "Power centres in emotion."2 Cuddy, page 14
 
1919. With funding from the Commonwealth Fund and the Rockefeller Foundation, Clifford Beers "formed the predecessor of WFMH [World Federation for Mental Health], the International Committee for Mental Hygiene (ICMH). Other supporters were Clarence Hincks, M.D., of the Canadian Medical Association, Adolph Meyer, M.D. of Johns Hopkins Hospital; and psychologist William James of Harvard.  William James, John Dewey and other socialist visionaries spread the philosophy of pragmatism, which denies Biblical truth, sees truth as relative, and tests its validity by its practical and measurable effects.
    Note: Remember, almost every public step in this social revolution won public sympathy and acceptance by focusing on a real crisis. But in the hands of socialist change agents, the nice-sounding "solution" became a stepping stone to an ever expanding web of control.1
 
1920. Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology (TIMP) pioneered research into psychological warfare under the direction of Brigadier-General John Rawlings Rees.1 Here, the British Army Bureau of Psychological Warfare would study the effects of severe stress and shellshock on British soldiers and research the human "breaking point" in order to learn how conflict and psychological shock could be used to manipulate and manage large human populations. 3?
1920s. The eugenics movement (quest for racial purity) spread through Western nations.

1925. The Rockefeller Foundation funded the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Psychiatry in Munick, directed by Dr. Ernst Rudin. Additional funding was provided by the Harrimans, Warburg and the British Crown. It continued to sponsor the Institute and its Nazi leader throughout the devastating holocaust of World Ward II. 4?

1925. A  Rockefeller Foundation's grant gives birth to the International Bureau of Education.2 Cuddy 15

1930.  The ICMH’s First International Congress on Mental Hygiene, held in Washington, D.C., founded the International Committee for Mental Hygiene. The Congress drew more than 4,000 participants.1

1932. Rockefeller Foundation president Max Mason tells trustees that "The Social Sciences will concern themselves with the rationalization of social control... the control of human behavior." 2 Cuddy 18

1932. Dr. Ernst Rudin, the Nazi director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Psychiatry (funded by "Rockefeller) was appointed president of the global Eugenics Federation.

1934 (February). A Rockefeller "progress report" (by one of the division heads) asks, "Can we develop so sound and extensive a genetics that we can hope to breed, in the future, superior men?"2 Cuddy, 18.

1930-33. Hitler came to power and delegated Rudin to direct the Racial Hygiene Society, which called for sterilization or death of people considered "racially impure." The Rockefeller Foundation funded an anthropological survey of the eugenically correct population by Nazi eugenicists Rudin and others. 4?

1933. British Columbia's Sexual Sterilization Act of 1933. In the 1970s, former health minister Dennis Cocke helped strike down that law. He said, "Many people thought, like I did, that it was disgusting that somehow or another a profession could deem a person other than a human being."5

1937. The ICMH’s Second International Congress on Mental Hygiene. 1

1937. "In Wadenberg, Germany, a court has taken parents away from their children because they refused to teach them Nazi ideology. The parents are pacifists, members of a Christian sect called International Bible Researchers. The court accused them of creating an environment where the children would grow up 'enemies of the state.' The children were delivered into the state's care. The judge delivered a lengthy statement reading in part, 'The law as a racial and national instrument entrusts German parents with the education of their children only under certain conditions, namely, that they educate them in the fashion that the nation and state expect.'" (Clifton Daniel, Ed., Chronicle of the 20th Century, cites a news article published Nov. 29, 1937)

1939. Rockefeller Foundation helps launch the School-Health Coordinating Service.2 Cuddy 22

1940s. "Otmar Verschuer and his assistant Dr. Joseph Mengele together wrote reports for special courts, which enforced Rudin's racial purity law against the illegal cohabitation of Aryans and non-Aryans. In the early 1940s, a large factory was built "at Auschwitz... to utilize the Standard Oil IG Farbin patents with concentration camp slave labor to make gasoline from coal.  The SS guarded the Jewish and other inmates and selected for killing those who were unfit for IG Farbin slave labor.... Standard Oil and German President Emil Heilfeck testified after the war at the Nuremberg Trial that Standard Oil funds helped pay for the SS guards at Auschwitz.  The Rockefeller Foundation defends its record by claiming that its funding of Nazi Germany programs during World War II was limited to psychiatric research."  4

1941 (fall): "The resurgence of an international mental hygiene movement [eugenics] was foreshadowed by the Canadian army’s creation... of the Directorate of Personnel Selection, led by psychiatrist George Brock Chisholm, M.D. In that role he became a friend and confidant of American psychiatrist Harry Stack Sullivan, M.D., then a consultant to the U.S. Selective Service. Both were concerned with how to select a civilian army and what public mental health resources would be necessary after the war. 1  Origins of the World Federation for Mental Health

1943: The Rockefeller Foundation helped fund the Allen Memorial Institute at McGill University in Montreal. Working with the Canadian military and the Office of Strategic Services (The OSS became the CIA in 1947), Dr. Cameron conducted torturous experiments on human guinea pigs in order to perfect the various mind control techniques. These brainwashing tactics included coercive interrogation, psychosurgery, drugs, hypnosis and "between 30 to 60 electroshocks over a short period" along with powerful tranquilizers to control anxiety. Cameron's justification: his patients, "like prisoners of Communists, tended to resist and had to be broken down." This is described in the 1989 book, Journey Into Madness: The True Story of Secret CIA Mind Control and Medical Abuse

1943. Joseph Mengele appointed medical commandant of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

1945. Harry Stack Sullivan Major, US Army, founder of the journal Psychiatry, thought his viewpoints on interpersonal relations could contribute to avoiding future conflicts between nations and the risk of war. In collaboration with Dr. Brock Chisholm, a Canadian psychiatrist and later director of the World Health Organization, he put these ideas to practice. Thus was born the World Federation for Mental Health.... Of Sullivan the person, some information is fact, some is anecdotal, some is rumor. That he was homosexual is widely suspected; that he was improvident with money is fact (he borrowed from colleagues and declared bankruptcy twice in the 1930's); that he was loose with the truth at times, especially during his early years, is speculated."7

1945. Immediately after the bombing of Hiroshima..., Dr. Sullivan invited Chisholm, then director of medical services for the Canadian army, to lecture at the William Alanson White Foundation. In two addresses, titled 'The Psychiatry of Enduring Peace and Social Progress,' he articulated his view of psychiatry and psychology as the disciplines that could make it possible for human beings to abandon war and become 'citizens of the world.' He and Sullivan were already thinking in terms of 'a psychiatry of peoples.'" 1 Origins of the World Federation for Mental Health

1946. The United States joined UNESCO. According to Charlotte Iserbyt, "this legislation was accompanied by President Harry Truman's remarkable statement: 'Education must establish the moral unity of mankind.' Truman's recommendation was bolstered by General Brock Chisholm, a... friend of Soviet agent Alger Hiss. Chisholm... presented a paper entitled The Psychiatry of Enduring Peace and Social Progress  Iserbyt
    Ponder Chisholm's words:
 "The responsibility for charting the necessary changes in human behavior rests clearly on the sciences working in that field. Psychologists, psychiatrists, sociologists, economists, and politicians must face this responsibility....
     "Can we identify the reasons why we fight wars...? Many of them are easy to list --prejudice, isolationism, the ability to emotionally and uncritically to believe unreasonable things....
     "The only psychological force capable of producing these perversions is morality, the concept of right and wrong...   For many generations we have bowed our necks to the yoke of the conviction of sin. We have swallowed all manner of poisonous certainties fed us by our parents, our Sunday and day school teachers....
      "...it has long been generally accepted that parents have perfect right to impose any points of view, any lies or fears, superstitions, prejudices, hates, or faith on their defenseless children. It is, however, only recently that it has become a matter of certain knowledge that these things cause neuroses, behavior disorders, emotional disabilities, and failure to develop to a state of emotional maturity which fits one to be a citizen of a democracy....
       "Surely the training of children in home and schools should be of at least as great public concern as their vaccination for their own protection.... Individuals who have emotional disabilities of their own, guilts, fears, inferiorities, are certain to project their hates on to others... They are a very real menace... Whatever the cost, we must learn to live in friendliness and peace with... all the people in the world...."
       "There is something to be said... for gently putting aside the mistaken old ways of our elders if that is possible. If it cannot be done gently, it may have to be done roughly or even violently....
     "Can such a program of re-education... be charted?"8
1946. Dr. Sullivan, US psychiatrist and army major, published the above message by Brock Chisholm in his journal, Psychiatry:
    "Alger Hiss, a Communist spy and the publisher of International Conciliation published the same paper by his friend, Dr. Chisholm, in his own journal. Hiss, then president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, wrote the Preface to Chisholm's paper. Iserbyt

1946 or 1947. (Both dates have been cited) Tavistock Institute of Human Relations is formed as an independent not-for-profit organization -- with a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation, which "was interested in seeing if the kind of social psychiatry that had been developed during World War II could be relevant for the civilian society."
    It would own the journal Human Relations. "Canadian-born psychologist and social analyst Elliott Jacques.... was the man who first identified the midlife crisis... Jaques was... a founder member of the Tavistock Institute." 9 http://education.guardian.co.uk/obituary/story/0,12212,934548,00.html
 
1947. Articles of Association for the World Federation for Mental Health were written. Rees (Tavistock) had already established preparatory groups in many countries. US participants included members of the Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry (GAP) led by recent Brigadier General William Menninger. They were sensitive to the new organization’s definition of purpose: "To promote among all peoples and nations the highest possible level of mental health....in its broadest biological, medical, educational, and social aspects."1
     The official  WFMH website website describes its vision: "a world in which mental health is a priority for all people. Public policies and programs reflect the crucial importance of mental health in the lives of individuals, families and communities, and in the political and economic stability of the world."
1948 (July/August) "Canadian social psychologist Otto Klineberg, M.D., Ph.D. and others... were joined by Chisholm, social scientists such as Margaret Mead (the federation’s second U.S. president) ...in an international commission convened at Sullivan’s suggestion. It produced the new federation’s founding document, Mental Health and World Citizenship." 1

1948. (August 21) The Third International Congress of Mental Hygiene met in London. Here, the International Committee for Mental Hygiene is replaced by the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH).  It would "enjoy consultative relationship with several UN agencies and... national groups."10  Its founding document, Mental Health and World Citizenship, was adopted. It stated, “Principles of mental health cannot be successfully furthered in any society unless there is progressive acceptance of the concept of world citizenship." The ultimate goal of mental health is to help people "live with their fellows in one world." See also "The UN Plan for Your Mental Health"
1948. The World Health Organization is founded with Brock Chisholm as its first Director-General.
 
1948. "Professors B. F. Skinner and Alfred C. Kinsey published their books, Walden Two and Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, respectively. Skinner's novel, Walden Two, recommended - amongst other radical things - that 'children be reared by the state, to be trained from birth to demonstrate only desirable characteristics and behavior.'
      "Kinsey, as a taxonomic scientist, wrested human sexuality from the constraints of love and marriage in order to advance the grand scheme to move America and the world toward the eugenic future envisioned by the elite scientists of the 'New Biology,'...
      "In 1953 Professor Skinner published Science and Human Behavior in which he said, "Operant conditioning shapes behavior as a sculptor shapes a lump of clay.'...
      "Kinsey and Bloom, as scientists, were involved in the breaking down of man (taxonomizing) into units of behavior which Skinner, as a behaviorist, could identify, measure and change. This breaking down or 'deconstructing of Man' was intended to separate man from his God-given, freedom-providing identity. This opened the door to the study of methods to control man and society." Iserbyt
 
1948. The National Institutes of Mental Health was founded under the leadership of Psychiatrist, Dr. Robert Felix. Dr Felix "was also the Director of a Lexington, Kentucky drug addiction center, which carried out LSD experiments on African American inmates who were drug addicted. The experiments involved LSD and a variety of other hallucinogens, marijuana and poisons."4 Null?
 
1950. (September): "God's plan in America" by C. William Smith is published in the Masonic magazine, New Age, includes this statement: "Great God our King has chosen the great American Public Schools to pave the way for the new race, the new region and the new civilization that is taking place in America. Any mother, father or guardian who is responsible for the taking away of the freedom of mind, freedom of will or freedom of spirit is the lowest criminal on earth, because they take away from that child the God-given right to become a part of God's great plan in America for the dawn of the new Age of the world."2 Cuddy, 26
 
1953.  Bertrand Russell, The Impact of Science on Society: "...the subject which will be of most importance politically is Mass Psychology.... The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for a generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen. As yet there is only one country which has succeeded in creating this politician’s paradise.”11
 
1955. "Congress passed the Mental Health Study Act mandating the appointment of a commission to make recommendations for combating the scourge of mental illness in the United States.  It is impossible to exaggerate the enthusiasm with which psychiatrists created this legislation. Their euphoria was justified.  In effect the act ratified the recasting of the very nature of the American government changing its primary duty from protecting and promoting personal liberty and property to protecting and promoting the mental health of citizens and the community as a whole."4 Nul ?
 
1959. (March): An article by Dr. James D. Carter, "Why stand ye here idle?," published in the Masonic magazine, New Age, stated that "Masonic philosophy" which brought about "a new order" became a reality by "the establishment of the public school system, financed by the State, for the combined purpose of technological and sociological education of the mass of humanity, beginning at an early age in childhood."2Cuddy 33
 
1960. Dr. Lewis Alesen, former surgeon and president of California Medical Association: "The proponents of the mental health program have been quick to elaborate a series of legislative proposals.... This is the age-old subterfuge of the collectivist, whose only solution for any problem, be it economic, social or political, is the passage of another law, the imposition of another tax, and the establishment of another bureau." 12
1963. Community Mental Health Centers Program established
1977. Futures We Are In by Fred Emery, a senior staff member at the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations, is published. According to Dr. Dennis Cuddy, Emery had "developed a theory of 'social turbulence' which indicates that faced with a series of crises, many individuals will attempt to reduce the tension by adaptation and eventually psychological retreat. This can lead to social disintegration."
       "In an earlier book, "Children of Change," Emery showed how television effects children. Since children tend to absorb rather than analyze information, "conscious functioning is impaired" and they become indifferent -- "more like 'sheep' than 'people'." He wrote, "In other words, television can be seen partly as a technological analogue of the hypnotist." Writing in Human Relations (August 1959), he said, "The psychological after-effects of television are of considerable interest to the would-be social engineer."2 Cuddy 61.
 
1979. Supported by the Rockefeller Foundation, the National Institute of Education and the U.S. Department of Education, Schooling for  A Global Age is published. In the Preface, John Goodlad wrote: "Enlightened social engineering is required to face situations that demand global action now. Education is a long-term solution.... Parents and the general public must be reached also... Otherwise, children and youth enrolled in globally oriented programs may find themselves in conflict with values assumed in the home. And then the educational institution frequently comes under scrutiny and must pull back."2 Cuddy 65.
 
1987. Among the notable members of the Study Commission on Global Education were (then) Governor Bill Clinton, AFT president Albert Shanker, Professor John Goodlad, CFAT (Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching) president Ernest Boyer, and Frank Newman, president of the Education Commission of the States. Together, they prepared a report titled The United States Prepares for Its Future: Global Perspectives in Education. The Rockefeller, Ford and Exxon Foundations helped fund this report. In the Foreword, New Ager Harlan Cleveland, author of The Third Try at World Order, wrote:
"A dozen years ago... teaching and learning 'in global perspective' was still exotic doctrine, threatening the orthodoxies of those who still thought of American citizenship as an amalgam of American history, American geography, American lifestyles and American ideas.... It now seems almost conventional to speak of American citizenship in the same breath with international interdependence and the planetary environment."13
1998 : Surgeon-General David Satcher, speaking at the National Healthy People Consortium: "We have a clear blueprint in place. ... Currently, 47 states are actively involved in Healthy People 2000 and 'Healthy City and Healthy Community' initiatives are being pursued throughout the country. Hundreds of national organizations have reviewed the Year 2000 objectives and have adopted them as their own. ...
    "No priority yet has generated as much interest and enthusiasm as this one on mental health..."
    "...our efforts will be focused on maintaining a system of global health surveillance," he continued. "Healthy People 2010 is the United States' contribution to the World Health Organization's call to the nations of the world to renew their commitment to health for all." 14
1999. (No date on page) "Nations for Mental Health:  "Governments will be assisted to formulate, implement, monitor and evaluate mental health policies...." These “policies should enable all individuals whose mental health is disturbed or whose psychological balance may be compromised to obtain services adapted to their needs, and to promote the optimal development of the mental health of the population."15
2001  World Mental Health: "...the World Health Organization has proclaimed that World Health Day, April 7, will be a day of advocacy dedicated to mental health issues."16

2001 (July 22-27). World Congress for Mental Health convened together with the 26th Conference of the World Federation for Mental Health in Vancouver, July 22-27. Pirkko Lahti was appointed the Secretary General/CEO of the WFMH  & manager of the Secretariat (until Preston Garrison would be appointed in September 2002).
     Allan Rock, Canada's Minister of Health, said, "...the World Health Organization has devoted both World Health Day 2001 and its Annual Report to mental health....There's the immeasurable toll of social exclusion, creating barriers and limiting us all....
     "...one of the recurring themes in our approach to mental health is a commitment to the principles of population health – to looking at the broad range of factors to nurture healthy citizens. Mental health, in particular, is multi-faceted, its determinants so diverse and its promotion so dependent on variables beyond the traditional health care system, that dialogue across disciplines is essential. ...And sometimes the greatest obstacles before us are the attitudes we face. Education is key to changing those attitudes. But so too is a full appreciation of the factors that contribute to mental health."17
 
2001. (September) Secretary General Pirkko Lahti, speaking at the WFMH conference in Beirut, says, "...mental health is not only psychiatry; it includes also economic, social, psychological, medical and environmental elements....The World Federation for Mental Health, where I act as president at the moment, is represented in about 130 countries. We have nine regions, each of them having a vice president or a regional president. The World Federation for Mental Health works in co-operation with the United Nations, the World Health Organization WHO, Unesco and the labour organization ILO."18
 
2002 (April 29): President George W. Bush added his support to this massive network by signing an Executive Order titled, "President's New Freedom Commission on Mental Health."  It established a commission which bound the Departments of Health and Human Services, Education and Labor together in a common quest for "the desired outcomes of mental health care, which are to attain each individual's maximum level of employment, self-care, interpersonal relationships, and community participation."19 See Legalizing Mind Control

Excerpted from Kjos Ministries:
http://www.crossroad.to/Quotes/brainwashing.html

Strategies used in China and other Communist countries as described by Edward Hunter in his 1956 book:
BRAINWASHING: The story of the men who defied it

"Brainwashing is a system of befogging the brain so a person can be seduced into acceptance of what otherwise would be abhorrent to him. He loses touch with reality. Facts and fancy whirl round and change places.... However, in order to prevent people from recognizing the inherent evils in brainwashing, the Reds pretend that it is only another name for something already very familiar and of unquestioned respect, such as education or reform." Edward Hunter, Brainwashing (New York: Pyramid Books, 1956), pages 185-186)

If you have read our articles or Brave New Schools or followed the implementation of Goals 2000 -- the massive education program signed into law by President Clinton in 1994 -- you would know that "education reform" has turned our education system upside-down. Our master plan comes from UNESCO, which published the blueprint for "lifelong learning" in 1973. The six goals announced by UNESCO at its World Conference on Education for All in 1990 became the original six goals for the American version of the global education system (See "Zero Tolerance for Non-Compliance").

Back in 1985, President Reagan and Soviet President Gorbachev signed the U.S. - USSR Education Exchange Agreement. It put American technology into the hands of Communist strategists and, in return, gave us all the psycho-social strategies used in Communist nations to indoctrinate Soviet children with Communist ideology and to monitor compliance for the rest of their lives.

The parallels between the Soviet education system and our Goals 2000 have been well documented by researchers such as James Patrick.1 But few have recorded the practical horrors of Communist brainwashing more thoroughly than did Edward Hunter in his book, Brainwashing. 2

It's time to take a closer look at the well-tested tactics used by Communist regimes to alter minds and create "the new Soviet man," for it's happening here. Once the international system is fully in place, neither we nor our children will remain free from socialist indoctrination and unthinkable controls. It's all part of Goals 2000, the school-to-work legislation, and the process of "lifelong learning" which is essential for building the planned "sustainable communities" around the world.

Edward Hunter based most of the following observations on personal interviews with victims of the Chinese "education reform". These survivors include Western missionaries, prisoners of war, teachers, and business men who were trained through cruel but sophisticated "brainwashing" tactics to betray their nation, embrace dialectic materialism, "confess" lies, and serve the Communist propaganda machine. Later, we will show how some were able to resist the process.

Compare Mr. Hunter's findings with present-day realities. Notice the references to words such as "democratic" and "discussion." Both point to the quest for social solidarity through the Hegelian dialectic or consensus process now used to mold minds through group facilitators in our schools, government, and workplaces from coast to coast.

A NEW KIND OF WAR!

"This was war! Some called it psychological warfare. A better name would be brain warfare. The only difference was that formerly weapons were aimed principally at bodies, to incapacitate and destroy them, whereas now they were aimed mainly at minds, so subvert and control them. In brain warfare ultimate victory lay in the conquest of attitudes and feelings." (p. 47)

"The Reds wanted people to believe that it could be described by some familiar expression such as education, public relations, persuasion - or by some misleading term like mind reform and re-education." (p. 5)

GROUP LEARNING, EMPHASIS ON SHARING FEELINGS

"...classes had virtually stopped. Varieties of 'learning' meetings were taking up all the time. The students were working on confessions, as were many of the faculty members." (p. 50)

"Meetings were being held in vacant rooms and open spaces wherever a group could gather to discuss, self-criticize, and confess." (51)

DIALOGUE, CONSENSUS PROCESS, DESTROY FACTUAL BASIS FOR RESISTANCE

"They went about this in the 'democratic discussion' manner this was the new principle of unanimity. He felt so tired that his minds did tricks on him.... God knows how little sleep he got." (43)

"What was truth anyway? Nobody knew. What was false. Others had confessed the same as he. Everyone couldn't be wrong. Could they? Weren't they all one team A collectivity." (44-45)

PURGE MINDS OF TRADITIONAL VALUES

"They work then on persuading the prisoner to rid his mind of the 'bourgeois poison' he had been carrying about of seeing good on all sides! That is patently ridiculous, they point out to this weary mind. Their patient then is taught that there is good only on one side, that the other is 'all bad' and the enemy. When an individual reaches this upside-down stage in his theorizing, he can then be freed." (198)

TRAIN EVERYONE FOR VOLUNTARY COMPLIANCE

"The long-range objective of brainwashing is to win converts who can be depended on to react as desired at any time anywhere. This is the inside-out meaning they give the word voluntary and is why they condemn free will with such ferocity, for its existence is basically inconsistent with communism.

"Even when he stands by himself, the truly indoctrinated communist must be part of the collectively. He must be incapable of hearing opposing ideas and facts, no matter how convincing or how forcibly they bombard his senses. A trustworthy communist must react in an automatic manner without any force being applied. Only then is he the 'new Soviet man' that Lenin foresaw." (184)

"Brainwashing was made up of two processes.

One is the conditioning, or softening-up, process primarily for control purposes.
The other is an indoctrination or persuasion process for conversion purposes." (182)
"[Conditioning and indoctrination] operate strictly within the 'practical' framework of dialectical materialism, which recognizes only power. They want to make sure that their followers will not grab the first opportunity to turn against them. That is the dilemma they have been unable to solve short of creating a 'new Soviet man' with the instinctive obedience of the termite instead of a free will which is subject to reasoning faculties and is therefore never 'reliable'." (183)

SCIENCE, ZEAL, and PSYCHIATRY:

“The methods used to make ‘learning’ and confession palatable and workable are borrowed freely from … evangelism, psychiatry and science. The language and ideals of each other these fields were taken over and given new meanings and new interpretations in accordance with communist need. Brainwashing is a combination of this fake evangelism and quack psychiatry in a setting of false science.” (202)

EARLY CHILDHOOD TRAINING -- Infant and preschool conditioning

"The only real guarantee for this was to grab a baby from its cradle and then to keep it all its life from the slightest contact with outside ideas or places, so a subversive word can never enter its ego." (184)

PURGE BIBLICAL HOPE & ABSOLUTES
(Today, China continues to outlaw certain biblical truths dealing with our eternal hope)

"The achievement of this submission is the immediate short-range objective of brainwashing. The man does not have to be a true believer so long as he is convinced that he has no alternative to following Red instructions. Hope -- the prospect of any alternative in life, no matter how slim -- must be wiped out of his mind entirely before communism can fell safe with him." (184)

"The hopelessness-inevitability line permeates communist strategy everywhere." (196)

DOUBLE-TALK and NOBEL EUPHEMISMS

"The Party's own name is one of its most striking examples of double-talk. Communism is sheer power system, gang rule with modern appliances. So long as the individual submits unquestioningly, he is what is referred to as a "disciplined Party member." (184)

"LIFELONG LEARNING": Everyone -- young and old -- MUST participate

"'Learning' and 'confession [now referred to as authenticity]' are inseparable from brainwashing. Everyone has to participate in them, whether a party member or not. Learning means only political teaching from the communist standpoint. Confession is an integral part of the rites. In China there are no exceptions from it for anyone, any more than for attendance at 'learning' classes. The retention of his own individuality by a single person is recognized as a deadly menace by the whole monolithic structure." (184)

Communist PARTNERSHIP WITH THE MEDIA

“There had been a big change in journalism since the Reds had taken over. News was now a weapon. The reporters knew… that the new authorities didn’t hesitate to alter details according to what they wanted to prove, and even to cut the news out of a whole cloth when it suited their purpose.” (44)

“The Red officials appealed to a man’s common sense. Seeing was believing, wasn’t it?” (45)

“He felt high, from smoking marijuana. The reds had told him not to, but he did. He foxed them; the stuff was growing all over the place. Funny, if they were so anxious to keep it out of his hands, why didn’t they uproot it?" (48) [DARE and other values clarification programs]

DISSEMINATION OF POLITICALLY CORRECT INFORMATION:

“Now they had the final proof that America had engaged in cowardly and loathsome germ warfare against the poor peoples of Korea and China. They had the details from the mouth of a man who had done so. What a story! Every newspaper… ran the story. They were copied by hand…. Posted on countless house fronts… Farmers were approached in wet paddies where they worked by 'able Party members' who told them the news.” (48-9)


FACILITATED GROUP DIALOGUES are used to confirm the new Information:

“The radio, with an emphasis all its own, repeated every detail. The routine discussion meetings, held daily in every school, office, or factory, were given over to this news by order of the authorities. The interviews were read out loud, during lunch or after work, by group chairmen who asked in the ‘democratic manner,’ for each person present to express his frank opinion about this ‘unspeakable barbarity perpetrated by the imperialist Americans.’ The repressed burdens each man carried within himself could find vent here. “


ALL MUST PARTICIPATE IN "REAL-LIFE" EXPERIENCE:

“Everyone in China… heard…. Every person was given the feeling of being an eyewitness. Everyone in all of China was called on to swat flies and squash bugs. The authorities explained that there was no telling how many innocent people had been infected with the ‘American plague.’ … A minimum quota was set for insect slayings…. Schoolchildren had to deliver their quota to their teachers. … Nobody could evade his responsibility to the state.” (49)

"Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:37-39)

Brainwashing in America
WHY FEW DARE CALL IT CONSPIRACY

http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/brainwashing.html
by Berit Kjos - 2001

"Information is useful only if citizens can put it into a framework of knowledge and use it to solve problems, form values, and make choices. Education for sustainability will help them make individual and collective decisions that both benefit themselves and promote the development of sustainable communities. [It] must involve everyone." [4] President [Clinton]'s Council on Sustainable Development

"...absolute behavior control is imminent.... The critical point of behavior control, in effect, is sneaking up on mankind without his self-conscious realization that a crisis is at hand. Man will... never self-consciously know that it has happened." [1]  Raymond Houghton, To Nurture Humaneness, ASCD (curriculum arm of the NEA), 1970
 
"The Protestant Ethic will atrophy as more and more enjoy varied leisure and guaranteed sustenance.... Most people will tend to be hedonistic..." [2]  Behavioral Science Teacher Education Program (B-STEP), Department of Health, Education and Welfare, 1969.
 
"We were trained in all phases of warfare, both psychological and physical for the destruction of the Capitalistic society and Christian civilization. In one portion of our studies we went thoroughly into the matter of psychopolitics. This was the art of capturing the minds of a nation through brainwashing and fake mental health... During the past few years I have noted with horror the increase of psychopolitical warfare upon the American public." [3] Kenneth Goff, member of the U.S. Communist Party from 1936 to 1939.
Brainwashing is not, as some anti-Christian educators and students contend, the Biblical  process of training our children to love and follow God. The word "brainwashing" refers to a planned, step-by-step attempt to "wash" family-taught beliefs from the minds of those who oppose government ideology. In America, it would mean replacing the old Biblical values and world view with a new way of thinking that would support a totalitarian agenda. In other words, every child must become a peace child, a willing and active servant of a new world order.

A massive world-wide partnership is pioneering new strategies for social transformation. The media, the entertainment industry, computer companies, government agencies, educational institutions, the United Nations and its accredited non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have all joined together in a common quest for a global mind change. They seek solidarity -- a worldwide unity based on a new set of beliefs and values.  "Obsolete" and "exclusive" loyalties to national sovereignty, Biblical values, and the unadulterated U.S. Constitution stand in their way.

Conforming the masses to their way of thinking requires all the sophisticated tools and tactics developed at the various "behavioral science research" institutes and "education laboratories" established first in England, then in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, and finally in the United States.  If these psycho-social engineers win their battle against an unsuspecting public, they would "wash" away individual thinking, free speech and all the other "rights" that have made America unique. The vacuum would be filled with lofty ideals, enticing images and deceptive promises designed to mold minds that match their global vision. Group thinking and other controls and "incentives" would enforce compliance. (See Mind Control and The UN Plan for Your Mental Health)

Bombard children with mind-changing suggestions

A familiar tale told to first-graders in Pennsylvania illustrates both the tactics and the planned  transformation of the world. We all know the story of the Little Red Hen who wanted some bread to eat. She asked some of her barnyard friends to help make it. But the cat, the dog, and the goat all said "no." Finally she did all the work herself. Yet, when the bread was done and its fragrance spread throughout the farm, her unwilling neighbors were more than willing to help her eat it.

"Won't you share with us?" they begged.

"No," she answered. "Since you didn't help, you don't get anything."

In the context of  traditional values, the moral of the story is: you get what you work for. But those who have learned to think and see from the new global perspective are led to a different conclusion. Listen to the kinds of questions the first grade teacher asked her class:

"Why was the Little Red Hen so stingy?  Isn't it only right that everyone gets to eat? Why wouldn't she share what she had with some who had none?"[5]

The concerned mother who heard and reported this story asked, "What kinds of values were the children taught?"  The new interpretation emphasizes love and sharing, but what is missing?  How might it confuse a child's values? 

The answers are obvious. The children were taught socialist values. The new interpretation vilified values that had motivated Americans to be diligent, responsible and fair. The teacher's questions were actually strategic suggestions prompting the group to ridicule traditional values, to see reality and society from the new politically correct perspective, and to intimidate and shame anyone who dared to disagree.

A new mental "framework" is vital to this paradigm shift [see chart]. But to launch the new system, the old patterns must be blurred and broken. The educational establishment knows that children who are fed a daily diet of biblical truth will resist their plans for change. They also know that students bombarded with strategic suggestions and idealized pagan images will probably reject Christianity. If schools can build the "right" kind of framework or filter in the minds of children early enough, the new global beliefs will fit right in. In other words, the battle for the hearts and minds of America's children will be won by the side that first trains children to see reality from its point of view.

     This paradigm shift was no mystery to Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World. He wrote that education must provide a mental "framework... within which any piece of information acquired in later life may find its proper and significant place." [6] 

     In the old days, that mental framework was the biblical world view. But Huxley, like most of today's change agents, called for a New Age/global framework. Like a filter, it blocks facts and ideas that don't fit, but welcomes input that strengthens the framework -- especially when communicated through stories and images that stir the imagination and arouse strong feelings. 

Focus on feelings, not facts

This shift from factual education to feeling and experience-based learning began over seventy years ago. Through the decades, the strategies used to manipulate minds in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany were developed, first at the Tavistock Clinic near London and later at Germany's Frankfurt School (originally called Frankfurt Institute for Social Research). Their mind-bending methods soon spread to a rising number of psycho-social research centers in America. They were fine-tuned at Columbia, Harvard, Stanford and other American universities, at our regional educational laboratories [7] and at the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies where Elian Gonzales was remediated in preparation for his return to a Communist system. (See Elian Starts Re-Education)

Bob Buford, former head of the Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management and the founder of Leadership Network also taught the new "Christian" leadership methods at the Aspen Institute.

More recently, at the 1989 Governor's Conference on Education in Kansas, Dr. Shirley McCune, then head of the Mid-Continent Regional Educational Laboratory, summarized the policy in her keynote speech:

“The revolution… in curriculum is that we no longer are teaching facts to children…. We no longer see the teaching of facts and information as the primary outcome of education.”[7]

"What will take the place of logic, fact and analysis in the coming age?" This rhetorical question was raised by Dr. Donald A. Cowan, president emeritus of the University of Dallas. His revealing answer exposes an important step toward the new consensus:

"The central way of thought for this new era will be imagination.... Imagination will be the active, creative agent of culture, transforming brute materials to a higher, more knowable state." [8]

It's easy to see why visionary change agents would prefer to inspire the imagination rather than teach facts and logic. Unlike facts and convictions, the imagination can easily be manipulated. Today's popular books, games and other forms of edutainment bring all kinds of suggestions and images that confuse the old ways of thinking and promote the new values.  They twist facts, turn right and wrong upside down, stir the imagination with unthinkable suggestions, redefine words, and give new meanings to old images such as the Little Red Hen. (See Establishing a Global Spirituality)

Eventually, most students become conditioned to see everything through the new politically correct mental filter. The sight of an old social symbol (i.e. flag) or the sound of an word they have learned to hate (pastor, evil, capitalism, etc.) can now trigger emotional reactions that cannot be resolved with facts and logic. 

A simple example of this process was exposed by a Christian teacher in Sunnyvale CA. During a public elementary school assembly, the students sang the words of the Peacemakers' Planetary Anthem to the tune of the Star Spangled Banner. This melody, which has symbolized freedom to those who have loved America, now became a tactical trigger used to turn hearts from the old ways to the new vision:

O Say can you see by the one light in all
A New Age to embrace at the call of the nations,
Where our children can play in a world without war
Where we stand hand in hand in the grace of creation,
Where the rivers run clean through forests pristine....
Inspiring, isn't it? The mental images behind those words illustrate the "visioning" part of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) as well as Total Quality Management (TQM). Both use the consensus process to create the collective consciousness needed for the new communities and social organizations.

In the classroom, this process of change often begins with planned "visions" that plant vivid but unrealistic goals into children's minds and emotions. 

Next, students must learn to visualize scary images of the current crisis. The crisis is vital to the process. It provides the justification for environmental activism, government control, and unthinkable changes. So, in stark contrast to the lofty ideal in the song above, the students must learn to feel the pain of a dying earth abused by the ruling generation. The colorful classroom manual on global change, Rescue Mission Planet Earth, fits the bill. It is full of scary, sensational pictures and misguided children's opinions that fire the imagination and fuel anger.

Trained teacher/facilitators turn this anger toward parents and grandparents who must bear the blame for destroying our planet. This is important, because -- as in totalitarian countries around the world -- children must learn to submit to state-defined values and loyalties -- not their parents or traditional values.

Unless they know the facts, children and their teachers will have little resistance to the heart-breaking images of dying trees, starving children, abused women and an overcrowded planet drowning in pollution and rising oceans.

As Al Gore wrote in Earth in the Balance, "I strongly urge the establishment of a Mission to Planet Earth, a worldwide monitoring system staffed by children...design to rescue the global environment."

It's all part of the plan: create and/or publicize a crisis, vilify the "enemy of the people", then market the pre-planned global solution to the world -- starting with the children. As in the former Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, the school becomes a boot camp for an army of angry and self-righteous rescuers, ready to argue using their feelings, not facts, against anything that opposes their new and narrow idealism. (See third point in Paradigm Shift) 

Rescue Mission Planet Earth is nothing less than "the children's version" of the United Nations' Agenda 21.  Sponsored by UNESCO and other UN agencies and promoted by the President's Council on Sustainable Development (see Local Agenda 21), the propaganda-filled children's book helps create the needed "gap" between inspiring visions and a perceived crisis scary enough to evoke strong feelings, change values and motivate children to government-led social action. 

"We have to re-orient education so that we turn out planetary carers (sic)," explained David R. Woollcombe [9], President of Peace Child International and head of the Rescue Mission Planet Earth project. He also serves as Consultant to the Global Vision Corporation,[10] a massive international NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) accredited to the UN Commission on Sustainable Development.  Behind the backs of parents around the world, it works to transform the goals, the methods, the leaders, and the process of education. "And that," continued Mr. Woollcombe,

"...requires, as Agenda 21 said, a re-orientation of education towards sustainable development. It's a revolution we're talking about here! It's going to require new materials, it's going to require much greater involvement by young people themselves in their own teaching and education, because actually, adults don't know as much and don't care as much about the environment as many young people do. And it's going to require a much better sort of facultative education, where teacher and students together are on this exploratory journey about how you can square the circle between economic growth and prosperity...." [11]

Before you dismiss Global Vision's power and influence, consider a few of its partners and sponsors. They include UN agencies such as the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the World Health Organization (WHO), the UN Centre for Human Settlements and the UN Centre for Human Rights.

It also includes numerous foundations, environmental groups, educational institutions, and media and corporate giants such as the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), Princeton University Centre of International Studies, Columbia University Department of Religion,  Mystic Fire Video, Apple Computer, Sun Microsystems, The Image Bank, Bell Labs, Robert Muller, Noel Brown, Federico Mayor, Nafis Sadik, Maurice and Hanne Strong (See World Heritage "Protection?"), Gro Harlem Brundtland (Head of The World Health Organization), the Dalai Lama, and movie moguls Bernardo Bertolucci and Martin Scorsese. All have joined their talents and resources in a common pursuit of the global consciousness envisioned by the United Nations.

A "new way of thinking"

In 1994, President Clinton’s Council on Sustainable Development took a big step toward that global vision. It met with an influential  group of like-minded change agents at the Presidio – the former army base in San Francisco that now houses the Gorbachev Foundation USA and dozens of other UN-related organizations. Its partners  included the UN Environmental Programme, the EPA, the U.S. Departments of Education, Labor, State and Energy, the Council of Chief State School Officers, the American Federation of Teachers, Stanford, Colombia and other major universities, the Sierra Club... and the organizers of the Rescue Mission Planet Earth project.

Their joint report, “Education for Sustainability,” became a model for sustainable education. Quoting David Orr, author of Earth in Mind, it states,

"One result [of formal] education is that students graduate without knowing how to think in whole systems, how to find connections, how to ask big questions, and how to separate the trivial from the important. Now more than ever, however, we need people who think broadly and who understand systems, connections, patterns and root causes."[12] emphasis added
"Root causes" involve far more than ecology. Anything that blocks the general acceptance of the new global ideology is suspect and must be challenged. Traditional beliefs and values rank high on the list of villains to their vision of peace. For example, an international "Declaration on Tolerance," prepared by UNESCO and signed by its member nations, shows one of the major "root causes:"

"Tolerance involves the rejection of dogmatism and absolutism."
"Scientific studies and networking should be undertaken to coordinate the international community's response to this global challenge, including analysis of root causes and effective countermeasures, as well as research and monitoring... "
"Promote rational tolerance teaching methods that will address the cultural, social, economic, political and religious sources of intolerance-- major roots of violence and exclusion."  Emphasis added [13]
The earlier statement from Education for Sustainability stressed the "need" for "people who think broadly and who understand systems, connections, patterns and root causes" from a predetermined perspective. This kind of thinking is -- and always have been -- crucial to brainwashing in totalitarian regimes with a global mission.
A basic goal of UNESCO’s worldwide program for "lifelong learning" was summarized in Our Creative Diversity, the 1995 book-sized report from the UN Commission on Culture and Development. Published by UNESCO, it tells us that,

"The challenge to humanity is to adopt new ways of thinking, new ways of acting, new ways of organizing itself in society, in short, new ways of living." [14]

This "new way of thinking" has become the standard for mental health in America. (See The UN Plan for Your Mental Health) As head of the Department of Health and Human Services, Donna Shalala helped organize The National Mental Health Services Knowledge Exchange Network. Ponder its definition for mental health:

"Mental health refers to how a person thinks, feels, and acts when faced with life's situations. It is how people look at themselves, their lives, and the other people in their lives ...and explore choices." [15]

Do you wonder what Dr. Shalala and her network of health planners would consider good thinking? Or bad thinking? This definition doesn't tell us. But Al Gore's 1992 best-seller, Earth in the Balance, helps answer the question:

"The fifth major goal of the Global Marshall Plan should be . . . to organize a worldwide education program to promote a more complete understanding of the crisis. In the process, we should actively search for ways to promote a new way of thinking about the current relationship between human civilization and the earth." [16]

Vice-President Gore was referring to an environmental crisis with psychological overtones. As we pointed out in the article on Al Gore's Vision of Global Salvation, he has diagnosed our basic social problem in America and suggested a solution:

"...we feel increasingly distant from our roots in the earth...we lost our feeling of connectedness to the rest of nature."[17]

"The richness and diversity of our religious tradition throughout history is a spiritual resource long ignored by people of faith, who are often afraid to open their minds to teachings first offered outside their own system of belief. But the emergence of a civilization in which knowledge moves freely and almost instantaneously throughout the world has. . . spurred a renewed investigation of the wisdom distilled by all faiths. This panreligious perspective may prove especially important where our global civilization's responsibility for the earth is concerned." [18] emphasis added

Al Gore's "panreligious perspective" has helped lay the foundation for a global environmental ethic. His vision of a "world education program" is nearing reality. It fits right into the United Nations' education system. This "seamless system" of partnerships and governmental agencies around the world has two main goals:

Prepare human resources for a global workforce (see Workforce Development Means Life-Long Indoctrination)
Bring the "thinking" of the world's human resources into alignment and compliance with the new global standards for Solidarity and Sustainable Development. (See The UN Plan for Your Community)
In other words, people must learn "to look at themselves" as part of the collective society, not as individuals. Their sense of worth must be based on participation in the community and compliance with the new ideology, not on individual beliefs or independent choices. A continual barrage of classroom "assessments" and surveys must test and track how children and their parents think, "explore choices" and draw conclusions.

To win this battle for the minds of the world, the United Nations and its powerful partners have agreed to put aside integrity and employ any possible means to reach their end. But they must still must operate according to guidelines that demand, at least, a perception of the consent of the masses. Therefore, the means to their end must be both subtle and deceptive, employing all the skills and strategies proven successful in the totalitarian countries of the 20th century. Al Gore summarized the attitude behind this global agenda well:

"Adopting a central organizing principle – one agreed to voluntarily – means embarking on an all-out effort to use every policy and program, every law and institution, every treaty and alliance, every tactic and strategy, every plan and course of action – to use, in short, every means to halt the destruction of the environment. . . . Minor shifts in policy, moderate improvement in laws and regulations, rhetoric offered in lieu of genuine change—these are all forms of appeasement, designed to satisfy the public’s desire to believe that sacrifice, struggle and a wrenching transformation of society will not be necessary." [19] Emphasis added

Our leaders have already shown us that Al Gore's words, "every tactic and strategy..." includes compromise, lies, deception, and propaganda. Where Biblical values have been dismissed as obsolete, these tactics seem are perfectly acceptable to those who lead this spiritual and psychological war for control of the masses. The UN, with help from the Clinton-Gore administration, have already re-invented the concept of government. Its new global management system would be based on its principle of sustainable development or rather, the 3 E's: Environment, Economy and Equity. It means using a grossly exaggerated view of the environmental "crisis" to re-educate the masses, persuading them to accept totalitarian tactics for redistributing the world's economic resources and creating socialist equality. (See Local Agenda 21- The U.N. Plan for Your Community).

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

"Bill Clinton will be a great president if he can make America the creator of a new world order based on consensus."[20]

Remember, consensus demands a felt crisis, and today's moral crisis -- created by trading moral boundaries for sensual freedom -- serves the purpose well. The absence of absolute boundaries leads to social chaos which, in turn, calls for social controls that would have been unthinkable under the old paradigm. In other words, the official promotion of sensual indulgence serves a political purpose.  Aldous Huxley summarized it well in Brave New World:

"As political and economic freedom... diminishes, sexual freedom tends compensatingly to increase. And the dictator... will do well to encourage that freedom.  In conjunction with the freedom to daydream under the influence of dope, movies and the radio, it will help to reconcile his subjects to the servitude."[21]

Psalm 2 fit our times:

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

The Ominous "Success"of Re-Education

By Berit Kjos - October 5, 2009
http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/009/3-family.htm

"The purpose of education and the schools is to change the thoughts, feelings and actions of students."[1]

"As the home and church decline in influence... schools must begin to provide adequately for the emotional and moral development of children. ...The school... must assume a direct responsibility for the attitudes and values of child development. The child advocate, psychologist, social technician, and medical technician should all reach aggressively into the community, send workers out to children's homes...."[2] "Joint Commission on Mental Health of Children"

"A proposal for new social studies curriculum in Texas public schools removes a mention of Christmas in a sixth-grade lesson, replacing it with a Hindu religious festival...."[3] Houston Chronicle

"...the breakdown of traditional families, far from being a 'crisis,' is actually a. ... triumph for human rights against 'patriarchy.'”[4] UN Population Fund leader

The traditional Christian family has been a continual obstacle to the globalist vision of solidarity. And for over sixty years, the United Nations and its mental health gurus have fought hard to eradicate those old "poisonous certainties" that stood in their way. They seem to be gaining ground!

Since Hitler outlawed homeschooling about 70 years ago, German parents have faced the harshest battles. Now other nations are catching up. Notice the government attitudes in the following examples:

"A critical hearing is scheduled in Germany in that nation's war against homeschoolers to determine whether a family can continue to control the education of its high-performing son, 14.... 'One of the fundamental rights of parents is the right to educate their children according to the dictates of their own religious beliefs.'"[5]

That "fundamental right" is fast being replaced by government-defined "community" or "collective rights." The fact that those homeschooled children have "extraordinary academic abilities" and are "socially competent" doesn't matter. Today's rising global system doesn't want "competent" Christian leaders. Not in Sweden, not in America -- not anywhere!
"A North Carolina judge has ordered three children to attend public schools this fall because the homeschooling their mother has provided over the last four years needs to be 'challenged.' The children, however, have tested above their grade levels – by as much as two years.... The judge... explained his goal ...to make sure they have a 'more well-rounded education.' ...the judge also said public school would 'prepare these kids for the real world and college' and allow them 'socialization.'"[6]

Such socialization tactics "worked well" in the Soviet Union. Based on the Marxist/Hegelian dialectic process, they include collective thinking, manipulative peer pressure, denial of absolutes, shameless "tolerance" for immorality, and irrational intolerance for contrary views.

The results can be disastrous. Students trained to scorn God's guidelines and conform to the crowd are anything but free. Most are soon driven by evolving new notions that undermine all truth and certainty. Loosed from moral constraints, many are bound by their own lusts, obsessions, and (ultimately) despair.

A Model School for Future Leaders

Bill Clinton's "Governor's School" -- one of many across America during the eighties -- demonstrates the tragic results. For six weeks each summer, it isolated selected Arkansas high school students from the outside world and immersed them in liberal ideology, sensual literature, group dialogue, and mystical thrills -- both real and imagined.[7]

"Students do me a favor," urged author Ellen Gilchrist, a guest speaker at the school. "Totally ignore your parents. Listen to them, but then forget them. Because you need to start using your own stuff, your real stuff that you have."[8]

Her aim was to free students from "obsolete" family values, not  promote personal independence. They must reject the old ways and become "open-minded" -- ready to accept the unthinkable practices that would bombard their minds. (See Paradigm Shift)

By the time they left the Governor's School, their utopian dreams seemed more real than the actual world. Like the planned results of Soviet brainwashing, they had been weaned from truth, facts and reality. With seared consciences, new ideals, and volatile emotions, they would now face the old world they had left behind only six weeks earlier.

The Marxist change agents behind this transformation are too numerous to list, but behavioral psychologist Kurt Lewin gives us a simple formula. Linked to infamous psychological research institutes in London (Tavistock) and Germany (Frankfurt Institute), Lewin moved to America when Hitler began his reign. His influence spread through MIT and other universities, then paved the way for "sensitivity training" and the formation of National Training Laboratories that would prepare transformational tactics and textbooks for public schools.

Lewin outlined his program with a 3-step formula:

UNFREEZING minds: Questioning the old ways through facilitated dialogue, peer pressure, and group "experience" -- real or imagined.
MOVING the students to the new level: Using cognitive dissonance (mental, moral and emotional confusion), peer pressure, and manipulated consensus to loyalties from the old ways and to the new.
FREEZING group minds on the new level: The new views become the norm. They feel good!  The old views become offensive as well as wrong![9]
For the students, the transition back to reality -- to home, family and normal life -- was painful. For some it was lethal. "When I came back home, I sort of wrote a suicide note to myself," confessed LeAndrew Crawford. "Not actually wanting to kill myself, but wanting to kill the reality of what society had been teaching me for so long.... I was totally down, because my family just didn't feel like my family.... I didn't want to be back."[7]

Brandon Hawk did kill himself within a year. Hearing about his death, other concerned parents contacted Brandon's parents.

"They see the same thing in their kids that we saw in Brandon," the father explained.... They just sort of walk off and leave the family."[7]

But Brandon wasn't the only one who chose death rather than life.  After the third suicide, the Joint Interim Education Committee of the Arkansas legislature held hearings that exposed some of the problems. Perhaps the most revealing testimony came from Brandon's mother, who read from her son's log. In his first entry, he wrote,

"'Moms are the best people around, and my mom is the best mom on earth.' But three weeks later, he wrote: 'My mom is so closed minded I feel like we will have a standoff soon over issues.' And his final entry stated: 'After I came back from the [three-day, July 4] break, my friends and I could tell that we had suddenly been transformed into free thinkers.'”[7]

Another mother testified that, “My son came back from Governor’s School and his favorite line was ‘There are no absolutes; there are no absolutes.”[7] 

It didn't take long to change the students' minds and hearts, did it? Yet few teachers or parents are aware of this subversive agenda.

Back in 1982, Professor Benjamin Bloom, an internationally known behaviorist, defined "good teaching" as "challenging the students' fixed beliefs and getting them to discuss issues."[10] (Sounds like Kurt Lewin, doesn't it?) He added,

"The evidence collected thus far suggests that a single hour of classroom activity under certain conditions may bring about a major reorganization in cognitive as well as affective (attitudes, values and beliefs) behaviors."[11]

The most revealing evidence that this scheme really "works" comes from those who participated in the Clinton's Governor's School. In light of today's rapid changes, it makes sense to remember their testimonies as recorded in the documentary video titled "The Guiding Hand":

1. ISOLATE STUDENTS FROM TRADITIONAL FAMILY VALUES

"For the six weeks ... they are not allowed to go home except for July the Fourth. They are discouraged from calling home.... They can receive mail but they are encouraged to have as little contact with the outside world as possible." (Shelvie Cole, Brandon's mother)

"I felt that I needed not to talk about it. I don't know why. Maybe because we were supposed to stay here and the fact that we couldn't leave.... No one... who had gone before would talk to me about it." (Kelli Wood, former student)[7]

The "effectiveness" of such mandatory separation may help explain why (1) educational change agents want to put 3-year-olds in pre-school programs and (2) why "Obama says American kids spend too little time in school."[12]

2. REINFORCE NEW LIBERAL, ANTI-CHRISTIAN VALUES

"We watched movies like Harvey Milk. We learned about gay life -- those things that your parents say, 'This is wrong... You shouldn't see this type of thing because, hey, that's just not right...'" (LeAndrew Crawford, former student)

"[The instructors] tear down their authority figure system and... help establish another one.... They convince the students that 'You are the elite. The reason why you're not going to be understood when you go home -- not by your parents, your friends, your pastor or anybody -- is because you have been treated to thought that they can't handle.' ...[This] intellectual and cultural elitism gives them the right... to say, 'We know better than you.'" (Mark Lowery, former director for Governor's School publicity)

3. EMPHASIZE FEELING-CENTERED (affective, not cognitive) TEACHING:

"Rather than learning what 2 and 2 equals, they would be asked what they feel about 2+2. Right now we have a move going on in our Arkansas schools called restructuring, where they are trying to get away from more objective, substantive learning into this subjective area of feelings." (Mark Lowery)

"You would think that there would be some academic challenges... getting ready for college... The main textbook that I remember from there is a book called Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and the book is totally Hindu religion defined." (Steve Roberts, former student)

4. SHAPE A PERSONAL, ALL-INCLUSIVE SPIRITUALITY:

"A lot of places. . . even Christian camps, you get that stress about 'What am I doing wrong?' . . .There it was like, hey, I can talk to God! Me and God are one, the world is one... Jump up and down, you know, just twirl around."

"It was kind of like that Baha'i idea. How you have Islam, Baha'i, Muslim, Christianity... They're all different kinds of trees, but underneath, its root system grows together [and] is the same god." (Steven Allen, student)

5. INSTILL THE TARGET BELIEFS -- A 'NEW' SOCIAL AND POLITICAL AGENDA:

The next quote fits Bill Clinton's experience. He was selected as a potential future leader -- a Rhodes scholar -- worthy of the required indoctrination:

"I think the whole intent of the Governor's School in taking 350 - 400 students per summer, is to pick out the four, five or six students that could be political leaders and then to mold their minds in this more liberal and humanistic thinking.... [T]o be considered intellectual... you have to be a liberal thinker...." (Mark Lowery, former director)

"They're bringing a political agenda in the guise of academic excellence.... It was something that was well orchestrated, well organized, it was mind-bending and manipulative." (Steve Roberts)

"Prominent themes promoted by this school include radical homosexuality, socialism, pacifism and a consistent hostility toward Western civilization and culture, especially [America's] Biblical foundations." (Jeoffrey Botkin)

6. BUILD ALLEGIANCE TO THE NEW COMMUNITY:

"You could dress just about any way you want. We had almost naked people. It was real liberal... an awful lot of cursing." (Mike Oonk, former student)

"The students... say, 'This is the perfect place. I never want to go home.' I caught myself saying that several times." (Mike Oonk)[7]

Indoctrinating students with diverse beliefs, socialist values, utopian dreams, and idealized love leads to deception, disillusionment, corruption and chaos. But that fits the battle plan for global transformation just fine. Today's change agents need chaos and crisis to justify their oppressive action.  Not only does it unravel the old social order, it gives an illusion of newfound freedom -- from family values as well moral restrains.[13]

"It would be impossible for me to describe to you just how exciting and unusual this educational adventure is," said Bill Clinton.[7]

It wasn't exciting for re-programmed students who returned home. But that problem may soon be resolved. Through "service-learning" and other long-term re-learning projects, today's students can stay rooted in the new environment -- even if they sleep at home.

This is where we are headed, dear friends! During this last year, three students at a top-rated high school in California committed suicide -- one of the many consequences of today's emotional confusion. One evening, as desperate parents met with school officials to seek solutions, a fourth student attempted suicide at the nearest railroad crossing. He was pulled off the track seconds before the train thundered down the track.[14]

Standing firm in this social and spiritual war

The school offered no real solutions. But our God does! Please take these guidelines to heart:

Pray!. For, as Jesus said, "...apart from Me you can do nothing." (John 15:5)
Prepare yourself. "Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole Armor of God...." Eph. 6:10-11
Equip your children to discern evil and resist compromise. "Do not be deceived...." 1 Cor. 15:33
Trust God, not yourself. "O our God... we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You." 2 Chron. 20:12
Inform and warn all who will listen. "I now send you, to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light..." Acts 26:17-18
"Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord..." 1 Cor. 15:57

The UN Seizure of Parental Rights

By Berit Kjos - July 7, 2009
http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/009/1-family.htm

“...some opponents of Humanism have accused us of wishing to overthrow the traditional Christian family. They are right. That is exactly what we intend to do.”[1] The British Humanist Association,1969

"...if you give me any normal human being and a couple of weeks, ...I can change his behavior from what it is not to whatever you want it to be.... I can turn him from a Christian into a Communist.... We can control behavior.”[2] Psychology Professor James McConnell, 1966

"Article 13. "The child shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers...."[3] Convention on the Rights of the Child

"Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ."  Colossians 2:6-8


Don't be deceived! The twenty-year-old Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) has little to do with personal rights. It has everything to do with changing values and undermining the traditional family. Since it transfers parental authority to the state, Christian children are legally free to reject safe family guidelines. The state will back their choice!  As Hillary Clinton wrote back in the nineties, "It Takes a Village!"

This process started long ago. Its milestones include the birth of the United Nations in 1945 and, starting in 1948, its "consultative" relationships with the new World Federation for Mental Health. The Federation's founding document, "Mental Health and World Citizenship," exposed the mind-changing agenda behind the social sciences:

"Studies of human development indicate the modifiability of human behaviour throughout life, especially during infancy, childhood and adolescence.... Social institutions such as family and school impose their imprint early.... It is the men and women in whom these patterns of attitude and behaviour have been incorporated who present the immediate resistance to social, economic and political changes."[4]

The CRC is designed to erode that resistance! For example, its ARTICLE 14 tells parents to "respect the right of the child to freedom of thought, conscience and religion." That might make sense if parents were free to teach them safe moral and spiritual boundaries. But it spells disaster in today's boundary-free culture, which bombards our children with promiscuous, pornographic and pluralistic suggestions and images.

ARTICLE 14 includes this qualification: "Freedom to manifest one's religion or beliefs may be subject only to such limitations as are prescribed by law and are necessary to protect public safety, order, health or morals, or the fundamental rights and freedoms of others." But who are those "others" that need protection? All who despise the Bible and are offended by moral standards? That's already happening! As one school administrator warned a student: "Leave your faith in the car."[5]

ARTICLE 15 grants children the right to "freedom of association," while ARTICLE 16 forbids "interference with his or her privacy... or correspondence." Their freedom to choose would fling the doors open to every lewd kind of literature, texting and Internet communications.

Notice the strange twist. With ratification of this Convention, the state terminates parental rights to set wise boundaries and maintain moral standards. It "frees" children to follow their new pied pipers into a world of corruption, group thinking, and government control. Meanwhile, Christian children lose their traditional right to express their faith, since Christian beliefs and values are too divisive for today's changing world.

This heartbreaking process is illustrated by a Canadian family. (Since Canada has ratified this Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), it must conform to UN standards):

"The father had ordered the daughter... to remain off the Internet. She didn't, chatting on websites her father had tried to block and then posting 'inappropriate' pictures of herself online, using a friend's Internet portal. As punishment, the father refused to let her go on a scheduled school trip, so the 12-year-old went to Canada's judicial system to get her way.  ...[she] had access to the courts using a court-appointed attorney representing her in her parents' custody dispute."[6]

"Quebec Superior Court rejected the Gatineau father's appeal of a lower court ruling that said his punishment was too severe for the wrongs he said his daughter committed. The father is 'flabbergasted.'"[7]

Such biased verdicts complement the deceptive language in the UN's celebrated Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Notice how it parallels the CRC: Its ARTICLE 18 guarantees "the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion." And ARTICLE 19 affirms "the right to freedom of opinion and expression...." But ARTICLE 29 warns that:

"these rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations."[8]

In other words, UN "rights" won't be granted to those who disagree with its goals. They include:

A New World Order ruled by unelected globalists with a socialist agenda
The end of national sovereignty, absolute truth and the traditional family
Social solidarity and spiritual pluralism purged of "divisive" Christian values.
A communitarian network of partnerships between three sectors: (1) government, (2) business, and (3) social. The latter includes community organizations, churches, families, etc. In this unequal partnership, the government becomes the controlling "partner." It would set the standards, measure (or assess) compliance, reward group "progress," and punish resisters.
This agenda may sound good to utopians who put their hope in global CHANGE -- and who ignore the duplicity of today's powerful and pragmatic globalist change agents. Today's clever disinformation "speaks" louder than the truth -- especially to listeners trained to follow feelings rather than facts!

So it's not surprising that two-faced "double-speak" is central to UN propaganda. UNESCO's Declaration on the Role of Religion is a good example. It calls for tolerance and dialogue -- but shows no tolerance toward Christianity. Its unchanging truths simply don't fit UNESCO requirements:

"We will promote dialogue and harmony between and within religions … respecting the search for truth and wisdom that is outside our religion.… We call upon the different religious and cultural traditions to join hands… and to cooperate with us."[9]

The word "cooperate" is a benign way of saying "submit to the new global standards." And any substandard results of that "search for truth" would soon be silenced by today's ever-present dialectical "group-think."

NO ROOM FOR RESISTERS

The CRC brings this interfaith agenda right into our homes and schools. Following the UN pattern, its promised "rights" are reserved for those who embrace its socialist, anti-Christian values. The Preamble sets the stage:

"Considering that the child should be fully prepared to live an individual life in society, and brought up in the spirit of the ideals proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations [co-authored by Alger Hiss], and in particular in the spirit of peace, dignity, tolerance, freedom, equality and solidarity....

ARTICLE 3. "...ensure that the institutions, services and facilities responsible for the care or protection of children shall conform with the standards established by competent authorities..."

ARTICLE 9. "...a child shall not be separated from his or her parents against their will, except when competent authorities subject to judicial review determine, in accordance with applicable law and procedures, that such separation is necessary for the best interests of the child..." [Might faith in God's unchanging Truth be considered incompatible with those "best interests?"]
ARTICLE 12. "...assure to the child who is capable of forming his or her own views the right to express those views freely in all matters affecting the child, the views of the child being given due weight in accordance with the age and maturity of the child."

ARTICLE 17. "States Parties recognize the important function performed by the mass media and shall ensure that the child has access to information and material from a diversity of national and international sources, especially those aimed at the promotion of his or her social, spiritual and moral [referring to politically correct, not Christian, values] well-being and physical and mental health. To this end, States Parties shall:
(c) "Encourage the production and dissemination of children's books.... [What kind of books? Most popular books today immerse our children in suggestions, images, beliefs and values that clash with Christian values!]

(e) "Encourage the development of appropriate guidelines for the protection of the child from information and material injurious to his or her well-being. [The Bible? Traditional history books? Missionary stories?]

Might those "injurious" materials include the Bible? Missionary stories? Traditional history books or other information that could clash with UN ideology? Probably! Since the goal is CHANGE -- establishing a New World Order -- any hindrance to that vision is already censored in public schools. The Globalist Elite have no tolerance for the America we have treasured!

INCITING HATRED FOR RESISTERS

This socialist revolution reminds me of the anger that followed the 1996 Oklahoma bombing. Day after day, the media's accusing pens pointed to suspected foes of American togetherness -- those whose "enraged rhetoric" had created a national "climate of hate and paranoia." They ranged from "rabid" radio hosts and "extremists" to concerned Christian parents. "Their coalition," wrote Time,

"included well known-elements of far-right thought: tax protesters, Christian homeschoolers, conspiracy theorists... and self-reliant types who resent a Federal Government that seems to favor grizzly bears and wolves over humans..."[10]

Apparently, the recent controversial report from the Department of Homeland Security was simply the latest expression of the socialist agenda. Do you remember its amazing report on 'Right-wing Extremism?' It suggests that economic woes, "the return of military veterans" and "individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration"[11] could lead to the "emergence of terrorist groups" and violence.

Notice what's happening. In spite of their call to unity, our socialist leaders are stirring up division. That's because this intentional vilification of ordinary, peace-loving Americans serves a useful purpose. Hitler understood it well. He, too, was determined to separate followers from resisters. Remember what he wrote in Mein Kampf:

"The art of truly great popular leaders in all ages has consisted chiefly in ... concentrating always on a single adversary.... It is part of a great leader's genius to make even widely separated adversaries appear as if they belonged to one category..."[12] (See The Enemy of the People)

This CRC is an invitation as well as a curse. It would "free" our children and grandchildren to be World Citizens, immune to the call of God and traditional parental values. But for those who refuse to compromise, it spells the end of American freedom. Ordinary Americans are demonized as an enemy, while the actual enemy has become a friend. Thomas Sowell said it well:

"While the rest of us may be worried about violent Mexican drug gangs on our border... the Director of Homeland Security is worried about 'right-wing extremists.' ... somehow they just know that you right-wingers are itching to unleash terror somewhere....

"So-called 'honor killings' by Muslims in the United States... does not seem to arouse any concern by the Department of Homeland Security.... When it comes to the thuggery of ACORN... the Department of Homeland Security apparently sees no evil, hears no evil and speaks no evil."[13]

SAVING THE EARTH

ARTICLE 29 states: "...the education of the child shall be directed to... (e) The development of respect for the natural environment."

That vision could be good if it wasn't wrapped in a political agenda -- and a spiritual one as well. But countless environmental and religious groups are now sharing their strategies for a new earth-centered ideology. Many so-called churches are persuaded that green religions are more beneficial than the "obsolete" certainties of the Bible. Al Gore leads the way. Ponder this quote from Earth in the Balance:

"The richness and diversity of our religious tradition throughout history is a spiritual resource long ignored by people of faith, who are often afraid to open their minds to teachings first offered outside their own system of belief. But the emergence of a civilization in which knowledge moves freely and almost instantaneously throughout the world has... spurred a renewed investigation of the wisdom distilled by all faiths. This panreligious perspective may prove especially important where our global civilization's responsibility for the earth is concerned." (pages 258-259)

Mocking truth is a sign of our times, and "fear" has become a common accusation against us. Yet, of all the world's people, Christians have the least reason to fear. For our sovereign God reigns -- all the more in the midst of today's unholy changes:

"...in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Rom 8:37-39

Meanwhile, "Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God..." Ephesians 6:10-12

Assaults on Faith and Family - Part 2
By Berit Kjos - September 7, 2009
http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/009/2-family.htm

"The bourgeois family will vanish.... Do you charge us with wanting to stop the exploitation of children by their parents? To this crime we plead guilty. But, you say, we destroy the most hallowed of relations, when we replace home education by social. And your education! Is not that also social, and determined by the social conditions under which you educate...? The Communists have not invented the intervention of society in education; they do but seek to alter the character of that intervention...."[1] Marx and Engels, Communist Manifesto

"John Dewey wrote...that the Bolsheviks were engaged in 'a most interesting sociological experiment...' using progressive educational ideas and practices to 'counteract and transform... the influence of home and Church.'"[2] Dr. Dennis Cuddy

"Years before he had inflicted... dialectical materialism on a long-suffering world, Marx called for what had to be accomplished—the ‘ruthless destruction of everything existing.’ That destruction would wipe out religion, the family, morality... and everything that made Western civilization…. The seemingly modest instrument was the [Frankfurt] Institute of Social Research... dedicated to neo-Marxism.'  
     "...the greatest harm came when the Frankfurt School decamped to America, courtesy of John Dewey and Columbia University."[3]

Remember that proverbial frog in a pot of water? It finally died, since it didn't notice the slow-rising heat.

Few saw the early signs of the Neo-Marxist ideology that has invaded our schools and universities. But back in Teddy Roosevelt's days, who would have guessed that a major goal of Dewey's "progressive education" was to weaken the traditional family, trade freedom for collectivism, and replace Christianity with an evolving form of "spiritual" solidarity?[4]

In his 1908 article, "Religion and our Schools," Dewey wrote that "dogmatic beliefs" were "disappearing." Decades later, while presiding over the American Humanist Association, he co-authored the 1933 Humanist Manifesto. Notice how his words reflect today's emerging churches?

"Any religion that can hope to be a synthesizing and dynamic force for today, must be shaped for the needs of this age. To establish such a religion is a major necessity of the present."[5]

Fast-forward to the 21st century. The ever-present dialectic process now reigns in churches as well as schools. And in cities across America, Alinsky-trained "community organizers" work side-by-side with students doing their "service-learning" from coast to coast. Meanwhile Christian families face rising opposition. For example,

"A 10-year-old homeschool girl described as 'well liked, social and interactive with her peers, academically promising and intellectually at or superior to grade level' has been told by a New Hampshire court official to attend a government school because she was too 'vigorous' in defense of her Christian faith. The decision... reasoned that the girl's 'vigorous defense of her religious beliefs to [a court assigned] counselor suggests strongly that she has not had the opportunity to seriously consider any other point of view.'...

"...a guardian ad litem [assigned to represent the interest of the child] concluded the girl 'appeared to reflect her mother's rigidity on questions of faith' and that the girl's interests 'would be best served by exposure to a public school setting' and 'different points of view at a time when she must begin to critically evaluate multiple systems of belief... in order to select, as a young adult, which of those systems will best suit her own needs.'"[6]

Did you catch that? The court tells us that this Christian girl -- an excellent student -- does not have the right to "choose" which religion best "suits her own needs" until she has examined many other "systems of beliefs." Only as "a young adult" would she know enough about the world's diverse religions to choose a suitable system.

Would that rule apply to Muslim children? Buddhist children? Hindu children?

Of course not! In today's "progressive" global culture, the "enemy" is Christianity. Other religions are protected. After all, they are essential to the new vision of "unity in diversity."

You see, today's change agents consider Biblical Christianity a major obstacle to global solidarity. And nothing erodes Christian values more effectively than immersion into small groups led by trained facilitators who guide the diverse members toward a pre-planned unity of heart as well as mind.

The Marxist practice of PRAXIS

But there's more to this manipulation. The path to pluralism calls for a strategic blend of group consensus [an evolving THEORY] and collective PRACTICE: active immersion into a community with diverse social and moral values. Such "service-learning" has become a norm in schools, colleges, and service organizations everywhere.

Based on Hegelian dialectics, Marxist ideology, and Antonio Gramsci's gradualism, this manipulative process spread around the world during the 20th century. Its blend of an evolving consensus or THEORY and collective PRACTICE would be called PRAXIS. It would seal the new lessons in "open" minds, while undermining all forms of traditional certainties. It would shift the public mindset from the solid rock of Truth and facts to the shifting sands of collective opinion.

Karl Marx first mentioned PRAXIS in 1844. According to the double-speak of the Encyclopedia of Marxism, it's "just another word for practice in the sense in which practice is understood by Marxists." And according to various Marxist documents, Marx saw it as the continual interaction of "theory-and-practice, in which neither theory nor practice are intelligible in isolation from the other."[7]

In other words, the group must continually confirm its evolving theories with corresponding practice. Its members must be ready to compromise for the sake of consensus (the evolving THEORY), and then PRACTICE its new views through some kind of group action or service -- followed by a time of group REFLECTION.... The process is repeated again and again, ad infinitum.

Not all groups fit this mold. Many Christian groups are grounded in facts, truth and certainty. They seek God, not CHANGE! They act on His Word, not popular opinions. Their hope cannot be quenched by the world's changing opinions:

"This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast..." Hebrews 6:19

The Marxist view of Christianity -- the "religion" of his time

To Karl Marx, Christianity was detestable! He hated it! And since its various expressions had spread throughout Europe, it had to be eradicated. So, in his Critique of Hegel's Philosophy of Law, he wrote,

"Man makes religion, religion does not make man....  Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of spiritless conditions. It is the opium of the people."[8]

From a Communist perspective, it makes sense. But from a Biblical perspective, it's nonsense! Marx believed in continual CHANGE. Christians believe in unchanging Truth, which clashes with that dialectical progression. Christianity can't be squeezed into the Marxist revolutionary process. Nor can Marxism fit into God's churches without perverting both Truth and faith. The two are incompatible!

The Encyclopedia of Marxism rationalizes the word "absolute" to fit its evolving theories:

"...the progress of knowledge never comes to an end, so the absolute is relative. However, even a relative truth may nevertheless contain some grain of the whole absolute truth, so there is an absolute within the relative."[9]
This distinction is important. Apart from God's unchanging Truth, there is no concrete hope or certainty to stand on, because man's unending desire to redefine reality knows no bounds. Few examples are more disturbing than the distortions of God's Word in today's postmodern churches.

Training our Youth in Marxist Praxis

An Internet survey of American colleges will quickly expose the acceptance and popularity of Praxis. Take the University of Wisconsin. Its page on "Service Learning Pedagogy" sounds innocent enough. It seems to reflect the Christian tradition of loving and serving the poor and needy, but it actually fits right into the Marxist formula for change: Facilitated Dialogue (establishing a preplanned, transformational OBJECTIVE) or THEORY + PRACTICE (practical experience that changes values) = PRAXIS. Its website affirms this process:

"The process of critical reflection is an essential element of service learning. It enhances student learning by connecting the service and the academic experiences. It links THEORY with PRACTICE."[10]

The real purpose is calculated CHANGE. Whether the students' assignment involves homeless shelters, drug and addiction issues, community organizing, medical care, or environmental issues, they will be led toward emotional involvement with those who "hurt," be they humans, animals or a "fragile earth." They learn to evaluate reality through subjective feelings, which can easily be manipulated. Like the students in the infamous Clinton's Governor School, they are trained to see life from an irrational -- often a revolutionary -- perspective.

When students are immersed in morally "diverse" contexts that mock Biblical values, they are likely to emerge with a disturbing familiarity with unforgettable corruption. They learn to "tolerate" practices that mock our God, empathize with those who face the painful consequences of bad choices, and accept social evils as a normal condition.

The actual transformation in student values will usually be measured by assessments done before and after each service-learning experience. These assessments are key to documenting the effectiveness of the program. The website for Minnesota State Colleges and Universities shows the significance of "reflection" and "assessments:

"Service-learning is not volunteerism. Reflection allows students to think critically about their experience, including how the experience affected them emotionally and how their values may have changed."

"Student assessments may include pre-service and post-service assessments...."[11]  

This transformational strategy may sound kind and compassionate to its numerous supporters, but it virtually immunizes most participants against God's moral guidelines. And those who don't flow with the changing values will pay the high cost of low assessments and poor grades.

Julea Ward, a Christian student at Eastern Michigan University, was expelled from graduate school "for not affirming homosexual behavior as acceptable."[12] Though she wasn't involved in formal "service-learning," she illustrates the general university attitude toward Christian values.

This seductive PRAXIS is now the norm in "service learning" programs from elementary schools through college -- and on through adulthood. With President Obama's universal service plans, few will escape the mind-changing manipulation. [See Praxis through Service-Learning for another glimpse of this transformational agenda]
Redefining Rights and Freedom

The 10-year old girl mentioned earlier illustrates a battle that has raged in Germany since the days of Hitler: Should parents have the right and authority to raise their children according to their Christian faith? As you saw in Part 1 of this series, the Convention on the Rights of the Child was designed to end that right in America and elsewhere. Of course, in modern Germany, parents never had such a right:

"A critical hearing is scheduled in Germany in that nation's war against homeschoolers to determine whether a family can continue to control the education of its high-performing son, 14. ...the Schmidts have been fined about $18,300 for homeschooling, and since they are unable to pay all of the fines, they have been subjected to a government lien on their home. 'Testing [of] both children showed that they have extraordinary academic abilities.... The tests also showed the children to be socially competent. This is critical as the Germans still hold to the disproven belief that homeschool children are socially retarded.'...

"Several hundred families are believed to be homeschooling in Germany. Virtually all are in some type of court proceeding or living underground. One family even fled to the U.S....

"...one of the first acts by Adolf Hitler when he moved into power was to create the governmental Ministry of Education and give it control of all schools and school-related issues.... In 1937, the dictator said, '... we have set before ourselves the task of inoculating our youth with the spirit of this community of the people at a very early age.... And this new Reich... will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing.'"[13]

Like persecuted Christians around the world, we must make a choice: will we please the world and follow its ways -- or please God and follow His Way? Since America is rapidly embracing Neo-Marxist ideals, Christians who refuse to conform may soon reap the wrath of the world. (See The UN Seizure of Parental Rights)

Please stay alert to this transformation. The pressure to compromise our Biblical values starts in elementary school or earlier. Once the anchor to Truth is torn away, most young minds will flow with the strongest currents. Dear friends, don't let go of that anchor! Warn your children! And train them to trust, follow and "abide" in our wonderful Shepherd.

"...do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." Romans 12:2

Twelve reasons not to see Harry Potter Movies
 
Berit Kjos - 2001

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone opened on November 16 at a record-breaking number of theaters across the country. "Christian" as well as public schools bussed their students to see the long awaited movie based on the first book in J. K. Rowling's ground-breaking series. Teachers are facilitating classroom discussions that train students to seek "common ground" and conform to an ever-changing group consensus.[2] While forbidding prayer in the name of Jesus, most schools seem to welcome spells and sorcery in the name of Harry Potter.

The pressure to participate in the fun and frenzy is intense. So what can a Christian child do in the midst of such hype, hypocrisy and popular wizardry?   

Those who know God can find answers in His Word. Consider this list of Biblical warnings and wisdom, then put on the Armor of God and pray that He lead you in His way.

1. God shows us that witchcraft, sorcery, spells, divination and magic are evil. He hates those practices because they blind us to His loving ways, then turn our hearts to a deceptive quest for self-empowerment and deadly thrills. Harry Potter's world may be fictional, but the timeless pagan practices it promotes are real and deadly. Well aware that the final result is spiritual bondage and oppression, He warns us:

"There shall not be found among you anyone who... practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord..." Deuteronomy 18:9-12

2. The movie's foundation in fantasy, not reality, doesn't diminish its power to change beliefs and values. Imaginary (or virtual) experiences and well-written fantasies can affect the mind and memories as much, if not more, than actual experiences.[3] Designed to stir feelings and produce strong emotional responses, a well-planned myth with likeable characters can be far more memorable than the less exciting daily reality -- especially when reinforced through books, toys and games as well as movies. Small wonder Harry's fans have been counting the days until their next fantastic journey into Hogwarts' classes on sorcery, divination, potions and spells.

"But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward." Jeremiah 7:24

3. Each occult image and suggestion prompts the audience to feel more at home in this setting. Children identify with their favorite characters and learn to see wizards and witches from a popular peer perspective rather than from God's perspective. Those who sense that the occult world is evil face a choice: Resist peer pressure or rationalize their imagined participation in Harry's supernatural adventures.        The second choice may quiet the nagging doubts, but rationalizing evil and justifying sin will sear the conscience and shift the child's perception of values from God's perspective to a more "comfortable" cultural adaptation. Even Christian children can easily learn to conform truth to multicultural ideals and turn God's values upside down - just as did God's people in Old Testament days:

"But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward." Jeremiah 7:24
"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness....
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!"  Isaiah 5:2-21

4. God tells us to "abhor what is evil" and "cling to what is good." (Romans 12:9) But when Christian children and teens love the Harry Potter myths, delight in the movie and read the books again and again, they are desensitizing their hearts and minds to its evil. Turning God's truth upside down, they are learning to "love" what is evil. The natural next step is to reject God's wise boundaries and "abhor" what He calls good.

"You love evil more than good...." Psalm 52:3

5. Immersed in Hogwarts' beliefs and values, children learn to ignore or reinterpret God's truth. They lose their natural aversion for the devious spirits represented by the creatures and symbols in this eerie world. Caught up in the exciting story, they absorb the suggested values and store the fascinating images in their minds -- making the forbidden world of the occult seem more normal than the Kingdom of God.

Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ."  Colossians 2:6-9

6. This inner change is usually unconscious, for the occult lessons and impressions tend to bypass rational scrutiny. After all,  who will stop, think and weigh the evidence when caught up in such a fast-moving visual adventure?  Fun fantasies and strategic entertainment has a special way of altering values, compromising beliefs and changing behavior in adults as well as in children.  This learning process has been named "edutainment" -- a favored way to train multicultural citizens for the envisioned 21st century community.  Its power to influence beliefs and behavior is illustrated by today's marketing firms which spend billions on entertaining ads that touch emotions, ignore the facts, yet motivate people to buy the product.

"Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, and revive me in Your way." Psalm 119:37

7. The main product marketed through this movie is a new belief system. This pagan ideology comes complete with trading cards, computer and other wizardly games, clothes and decorations stamped with HP symbols, action figures and cuddly dolls and audio cassettes that could keep the child's minds focused on the occult all day and into night. But in God's eyes, such paraphernalia become little more than lures and doorways to deeper involvement with the occult. In contrast, He calls a person "blessed" who -

"walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor stands in the path of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of the scornful [mockers];
"But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. Whatever he does shall prosper." Psalm 1:1-3

8. The implied source of power behind Harry's magical feats tend to distort a child's understanding of God. In the movie as in the books, words traditionally used to refer to occult practices become so familiar that children begin to apply the same terms to God and His promised strength. Many learn to see God as a power source that can be manipulated with the right kind of prayers and rituals -- and view his miracles as just another form of magic. They base their understanding of God on their own feelings and wants, not on His revelation of Himself.

"You thought that I was altogether like you; but I will rebuke you...." Psalm 50:21

9. Blind to the true nature of God, children will blend (synthesize) Biblical truth with pagan beliefs and magical practices. In the end, you distort and destroy any remnant of true Christian faith. For our God cannot be molded to match pagan gods.

“For My people have committed two evils:
They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters,
And hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water." Jeremiah 2:1

10. God tells us to "train up a child in the way He should go."  It starts with teaching them God's truths and training them all day long to see reality from His, not the world's perspective. To succeed, we need to shield them from contrary values until they know His Word and have memorized enough Scriptures to be able to recognize and resist deception. Once they have learned to love what God loves and see from His perspective, they will demonstrate their wisdom by choosing to say "no" to Harry Potter.

“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up." Deuteronomy 6:6-7

11. While some argue that Harry and his friends model friendship and integrity, they actually model how to lie and steal and get away with it. Their examples only add to the cultural relativism embraced by most children today who are honest when it doesn't cost anything, but who lie and cheat when it serves their purpose.

"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased [depraved] mind, to do those things which are not fitting.... They are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them." Romans 1:28-32

12. God has a better way. When His children choose to follow His ways, He gives them a heart to love Him, spiritual eyes that can understand and delight in His Word, a sense of His presence and a confidence in His constant care -- no matter what happens around us. Harry Potter's deceptive thrills are worse than worthless when compared to the wonderful riches our Shepherd promises those who will ignore evil and walk with Him.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things." Philippians 4:6-8

"The Technocratic Age is slowly designing an every day more controlled society. The society will be dominated by an elite of persons free from traditional values (!) who will have no doubt in fulfilling their objectives by means of purged techniques with which they will influence the behavior of people and will control and watch the society in all details". "... it will become possible to exert a practically permanent watch on each citizen of the world".         
- Zbigniew Brzezinski - (Obama's Foreign Policy advisor & co-founder of Trilateral Commission)

"The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen... At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties."
- New York City Mayor John F. Hylan, 1922

"It doesn't matter who the people voted for; they always vote for us".                                       
- Joseph Stalin -

"The world is governed by personalities very different to what people that cannot see further than their eyes, believe."
- Benjamin Disraeli - (British Statesman)

"Behind the October Revolution there are more influential personalities than the thinkers & executors of Marxism"
- Lenin

"The one who cannot see that on Earth a big endeavor is taking place, an important plan, on which realization we are allowed to collaborate as faithful servants, certainly has to be blind" 
- Winston Churchill - (33 Degree Freemason)

"... in politics nothing is accidental. If something happens, be assured it was planned this way"
- Franklin D. Roosevelt - (32 Degree Freemason)

"Today, I say that no nation in the world need be left out of the global system we are constructing."
- Madeleine Albright

"Give me the power of the money and it will not matter any more who makes the laws"
- Mayer Amschel Rothschild

"In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn't such a great idea after all."
- Strobe Talbot, Clinton's Deputy Secretary of State, as quoted in Time, July 20th, l992.

"We shall have world government whether you like it or not, by conquest or consent."
- James Warburg, Rothschild US banking liason & Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member, to The Senate Foreign Relations Committee, February 17th, l950         

To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family tradition, national patriotism and religious dogmas ...
We have swallowed all manner of poisonous certainties fed us by our parents, our Sunday and day school teachers, our politicians, our priests, our newspapers and others with vested interests in controlling us.    The reinterpretation and eventual eradication of the concept of right and wrong which has been the basis of child training, the substitution of intelligent and rational thinking for faith in the certainties of the old people, these are the belated objectives ... for charting the changes of human behavior.
- Brock Chisolm, DIRECTOR of the WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION

"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 work 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 autodetermination practiced in past centuries."
- David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, June, 1991

"The idea was that those who direct the overall conspiracy could use the differences in those two so-called ideologies [marxism/fascism, socialism, capitalism, etc.] to enable them [the Illuminati] to divide larger and larger portions of the human race into opposing camps so that they could be armed and then brainwashed into fighting and destroying each other."         
- Myron Fagan

"Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the Field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it." 
- Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom 1913 (Signed the Federal Reserve Act in 1913)

"For a long time I felt that FDR had developed many thoughts and ideas that were his own to benefit this country, the United States. But, he didn't. Most of his thoughts, his political ammunition, as it were, were carefully manufactured for him in advanced by the Council on Foreign Relations-One World Money group. Brilliantly, with great gusto, like a fine piece of artillery, he exploded that prepared "ammunition" in the middle of an unsuspecting target, the American people, and thus paid off and returned his internationalist political support... The UN is but a long-range, international banking apparatus clearly set up for financial and economic profit by a small group of powerful One-World revolutionaries, hungry for profit and power... The depression was the calculated 'shearing' of the public by the World Money powers, triggered by the planned sudden shortage of supply of call money in the New York money market....The One World Government leaders and their ever close bankers have now acquired full control of the money and credit machinery of the U.S. via the creation of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank."
- Curtis Dall, FDR's son-in-law as quoted in his book, "My Exploited Father-in-Law"

"The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson."
- A letter written by FDR to Colonel House, November 21st, l933

"The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes."
- Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, 1952

"Fifty men have run America, and that's a high figure."
- Joseph Kennedy, father of JFK, in the July 26th, l936 issue of The New York Times.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements, arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the worlds' central banks which were themselves private corporations. The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury of all other economic groups."
- Tragedy and Hope: A History of The World in Our Time (Macmillan Company, 1966,) Professor Carroll Quigley of Georgetown University, highly esteemed by his former student, William Jefferson Clinton.

"The Council on Foreign Relations is "the establishment." Not only does it have influence and power in key decision-making positions at the highest levels of government to apply pressure from above, but it also announces and uses individuals and groups to bring pressure from below, to justify the high level decisions for converting the U.S. from a sovereign Constitutional Republic into a servile member state of a one-world dictatorship."
- Former Congressman John Rarick 1971

"The New World Order will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down... but in the end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old fashioned frontal assault."
- CFR member Richard Gardner, writing in the April l974 issue of the CFR's journal, Foreign Affairs.

"The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining supercapitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control.... Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent."
- Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976, killed in the Korean Airlines 747 that was shot down

"The most powerful clique in these (CFR) groups have one objective in common: they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the U.S. They want to end national boundaries and racial and ethnic loyalties supposedly to increase business and ensure world peace. What they strive for would inevitably lead to dictatorship and loss of freedoms by the people. The CFR was founded for "the purpose of promoting disarmament and submergence of U.S. sovereignty and national independence into an all-powerful one-world government."
- Harpers, July l958

"If there are those who think we are to jump immediately into a new world order, actuated by complete understanding and brotherly love, they are doomed to disappointment. If we are ever to approach that time, it will be after patient and persistent effort of long duration. The present international situation of mistrust and fear can only be corrected by a formula of equal status, continuously applied, to every phase of international contacts, until the cobwebs of the old order are brushed out of the minds of the people of all lands."
- Dr. Augustus O. Thomas, president of the World Federation of Education Associations (August 1927), quoted in the book International Understanding: Agencies Educating for a New World (1931)

"... when the struggle seems to be drifting definitely towards a world social democracy, there may still be very great delays and disappointments before it becomes an efficient and beneficent world system. Countless people ... will hate the new world order ... and will die protesting against it. When we attempt to evaluate its promise, we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and graceful-looking people."
-H. G. Wells, in his book entitled The New World Order (1939)

"The term Internationalism has been popularized in recent years to cover an interlocking financial, political, and economic world force for the purpose of establishing a World Government. Today Internationalism is heralded from pulpit and platform as a 'League of Nations' or a 'Federated Union' to which the United States must surrender a definite part of its National Sovereignty. The World Government plan is being advocated under such alluring names as the 'New International Order,' 'The New World Order,' 'World Union Now,' 'World Commonwealth of Nations,' 'World Community,' etc. All the terms have the same objective; however, the line of approach may be religious or political according to the taste or training of the individual."
- Excerpt from A Memorial to be Addressed to the House of Bishops and the House of Clerical and Lay Deputies of the Protestant Episcopal Church in General Convention (October 1940)

"The existing order is breaking down at a very rapid rate, and the main uncertainty is whether mankind can exert a positive role in shaping a new world order or is doomed to await collapse in a passive posture. We believe a new order will be born no later than early in the next century and that the death throes of the old and the birth pangs of the new will be a testing time for the human species."
- Richard A. Falk, in an article entitled "Toward a New World Order: Modest Methods and Drastic Visions," in the book "On the Creation of a Just World Order" (1975)

"Further global progress is now possible only through a quest for universal consensus in the movement towards a new world order."    -Mikhail Gorbachev, in an address at the United Nations (December 1988)

"We believe we are creating the beginning of a new world order coming out of the collapse of the U.S.-Soviet antagonisms."   -Brent Scowcroft (August 1990), quoted in The Washington Post (May 1991)

"If we do not follow the dictates of our inner moral compass and stand up for human life, then his lawlessness will threaten the peace and democracy of the emerging new world order we now see, this long dreamed-of vision we've all worked toward for so long."   
- President George HW Bush (January 1991)

"... it's Bush's baby, even if he shares its popularization with Gorbachev. Forget the Hitler 'new order' root; F.D.R. used the phrase earlier."     
- William Safire, in The New York Times (February 1991)

How to Achieve The New World Order -- Title of book excerpt by Henry Kissinger, Time magazine (Mar 1994)

"There will be in the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude and producing dictatorship without tears so to speak. Producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution."
- Aldous Huxley, Tavistock Group, California Medical School, 1961 -

Directed to the 23 Supreme Councils of the Illuminati 4 June 1889:  "To you, Sovereign Instructors of Grade 33, we tell you: you have to repeat to the brothers of inferior grades that we worship only one God to whom we pray without superstition. It is we, Initiated in the Supreme Grade, that are to keep the real Masonic religion preserving pure the Lucifer doctrine"
- Albert Pike - (33rd Freemason)

"We shall unleash the Nihilists and Atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effects of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will be from that moment without compass, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view, a manifestation which will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."   
- Albert Pike 33°    "Letter to Mazzini"  15 August 1871

"Fictions are necessary to the people, and the Truth becomes deadly to those who are not strong enough to contemplate it in all its brilliance. In fact, what can there be in common between the vile multitude and sublime wisdom? The truth must be kept secret, and the masses need a teaching proportioned to their imperfect reason."
- Albert Pike 33°   "Morals and Dogma",   page 103 -

"It was during that period that I became interested in freemasonry. ... In the eighteenth century freemasonry became expressive of a militant policy of enlightenment, as in the case of the Illuminati, who were the forerunners of the revolution; on its left it culminated in the Carbonari. Freemasons counted among their members both Louis XVI and the Dr. Guillotin who invented the guillotine. In southern Germany freemasonry assumed an openly revolutionary character, whereas at the court of Catherine the Great it was a masquerade reflecting the aristocratic and bureaucratic hierarchy. A freemason Novikov was exiled to Siberia by a freemason Empress.  I discontinued my work on freemasonry to take up the study of Marxian economics. ... The work on freemasonry acted as a sort of test for these hypotheses. ... I think this influenced the whole course of my intellectual development."

My Name is Elliott, I am a 35 yr old Carpenter in Seattle, Washington...

I have been seeking Truth my whole life, looking for God everywhere but in Jesus Christ... Believe me when I say that I did not want to believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, or that He is the ONLY way to the Truth, Light & Life... the "political correctness" indoctrination in school caused me to reject the exclusivity of Christ Jesus...
I was turned off of Christ by the easy-believism & hypocrisy of modern Churchianity, & the violent past of Catholicism & Protestantism... I bought into the "Liberal/progressive" lie that all Religions are the same...
I searched through various schools of philosophy, from Plato to Ken Wilber... until I realized that moral relativism & situational ethics were just sophisticated forms of vanity and intellectual elitism...
I researched various forms of scientific thought, even astrophysics & quantum mechanics... until I realized it was an endless quest in reductionist materialism...
I became a political & environmental activist in order to "change the world!"... until I realized that secular humanism was just atheistic dominionism, and I was an unwitting tool of the globalist elites who manipulate ALL of the various ideological camps through the Hegelian Dialectic (Problem -> Reaction -> Solution)...
So I began my theological search for spiritual understanding, which led me on a path through the Taoism, Hinduism, Buddhism, paganism, New Ageism & Hebrew Roots... until I realized that syncretism, eclecticism, & pantheism were just ways of trying to make God in my own image...
I became enthralled with gnosticism, hermeticism, mysticism, shamanism, Cabalism, secret societies & the occult... I began to read the KJV Bible in order to prove the Christians wrong... (For I had "secret knowledge" that they didn't know!)... until I realized that these paths were just an ego trip & blinded me with pride...

Finally, after I had exhausted every possible "alternative" to the Truth, I humbly realized & recognized that Jesus Christ is our one & only Lord & Savior... My whole life has changed... I now study the scriptures & listen to on-line sermons for daily guidance in my life... I feel like I have had the scales removed from my eyes & cobwebs from my conscience... I feel like my life has been transformed from a grainy black & white photograph into a full-spectrum kaleidoscope of light...   Praise the Lord...!

Let me know if anyone else in the Seattle area wants to join my family for a home Bible study...
God Bless,
Elliott
