As time goes on I'm amazed at how many people really know what's going on. I've recently began to study Will Durant's view of history and am finding some stunning revelations.
A Brief History of the One-World Government Movement
(Reprinted from the "Newsletter Column," June 1998 issue of Acres U.S.A., the monthly

". . . The existence of entire states comes to depend on a few private destinies vastly magnified."
So wrote Oswald Spengler in his classic and awesome work, The Decline of the West. Athens,
Rome, Carthage, the American North and the American South, all bear marks of this Spenglerian
comment, as do the nations of our time. The people, "a beast of muddy brain," Campanello
wrote, "knows not its own force, and therefore stands loaded with wood and stone . . . a mere
child guides it with bit and rein . . ."
Except for a few brokers and simple-minded politicians, almost everyone has some
comprehension of the gathering storm. A world awash in debt and economic slavery stands ready
to cut the floor out from under the American perpetual motion machine.
Thus the time has come for this Newsletter column to tunnel in under the mundane, not as a
miner, but as honest reporting a bit ahead of the fad, a bit behind the events that have led to the
It has been written in words like these that aquisition and merger bring an aristocratic culture to
the top of its form, whereas correspondingly philosophers despise these goals. As a culture rises
to its height, the two primary urges defined above travel apart, and hostility develops between
them. Spengler thinks this trend really defines world history. Toynbee and Pierrene would agree.
From a feeling of power comes conquest
and politics and law. From spoils, piracy, and trade come economy and money.
Our syllogistic sandwich therefore concludes that law is the personal property of the powerful.
What they conclude should be the law is the law for all. Money in turn is the unbeatable
weapon of acquiring. With
money the powerful subdue the planet. It is forever the goal of the powerful and monied classes
to court and establish economies and governments that are weak and subservient.
Free politics demands that economic life adapt itself to and within the state. The war and trade
nobility demands free flow of capital, even though the outcome of this exercise always leads to
decline and fall. Needless to say, the trade nobility has seized control not only of the state, but
also the military as warned by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in his farewell remarks.
Those who follow cultural and historical cycles assure us that the simple-minded have guided
the nation to perdition, but not many can identify or even recall the steps the body politic was
hoodwinked into taking along the way.
In our time the captains of industry have identified as their goal one vast trading wall, forgetting
that it was the differences of nations that created trade in the first place.
Sir Francis Drake could anchor off the coast of Africa and barter for, say, 200 war captives.
There was a differential advantage between Africa and the West Indies, thus the slave trade was
The modern trade nobility can discern a differential advantage between China and the United
States, but it is no longer necessary to transport Chinese slaves - indeed that would be counterproductive.
The cheap cost producer can stay at home, and the product can be transported. Even
a child can see that such a system must pull itself down in the fullness of time.
The trade nobility does not agree, for it now commands the government, remakes the
constitution with wired judges, solves its worst miscalculations via a subsidized International
Monetary Fund, and prays the sacred Dow will not desert it now.
The Indicators Over the past several months and years, this Newsletter has decoded the
indicators that pretend to tell us just where we are on the curve of history. We do not know
what or who will take the blame for the unwinding of the U.S. Constitution and the decision to
scrap our most sacred tradition to
placate the greed of the merchant. Perhaps Clinton will become a Hoover. Perhaps artful spin
doctors will invent some exotic cause totally divorced from the historical facts. For now it is
enough to suggest signs and symptoms, deferring an historical wrapup for later in this letter.
It is, of course, a wild proposition that all internal economies should be made subservient to the
wishes of money and trade lords hard on the hunt for a differential advantage. The wild men are
making the storied
man from Borneo look like a Boy Scout.
No one is in charge of this one world operation, even though Greenspan and a few of
Washington's flim-flam men pretend as much. One world is too big for one man or even one
group of men to keep a handle on.
In The End of Certainty, the writer - Nobel Prize-winning physicist Ilya Prigogine - explains that
advanced forms can evolve only by deviating ever further from equilibrium. We can translate this
to mean that the curve of history, the grand cycle, if you will, must return when everyone
becomes convinced that a new millenium has been reached. At 63 times dividends on industrial
stocks, a vast majority has become
convinced that arithmetic no longer matters. The big question today is whether economic winter
will destroy the absconders, or whether disgust and revolt will spend itself, leaving the same old
forces in command of the field!
Cast of Characters
It was recorded in an earlier book, Unforgiven, that whenWoodrow Wilson, the earliest of the
one-worlders, first captured the U.S. presidency, it was not possible at first to convince a clear
majority of industrialists that they should give up a stabilized economy in order to hunt the
world over for markets. Thus, it became necessary to break down the buying power of the
consumer's dollar, a feat easily handled by selling down futures in silver on the London
Exchange. For every penny an ounce that silver was lowered, wheat in Kansas fell a penny a
The banking and trade elite concluded they had discovered the key to eliminating that pesky
provision in the U.S. Constitution that Congress regulate the value of money. Then as now, the
real value of the dollar
depended on the value of commodities produced in the economy. For this reason, manipulation
of commodity prices has led the way, with other organized probes - Council on Foreign
Relations, General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, Committee for Economic Development and
World Trade Organization to follow.
A communication from Jose MacDonald of Wales last month illustrated the subtlety of the trade
nobility and how it stands ready to deprive nations of their rights and heritage. "From 1973 to
1993, EEU communities were implicated, destroying the power of the House of Commons, the
United Kingdom and jurisdiction of courts. Done with intent, secrecy and collaboration of
leading politicians and by businesses, the United States cooperated with historical German and
French plans for a Eurostate and formulated it. It was set up by undemocratic means."
This sudden awareness shocked Brits because they had believed the United Kingdom to be a
democracy, that the will of the people to forgo genetically engineered foods would be respected,
and that their customs and laws exempted them from being given the in/out basket treatment by
a bunch of high-level carpetbaggers.
The Bilderbergers might be a household word for some, but the fact is that only a small percent
of the people worldwide know how their rights and freedom are being compromised by an elite
group with alien ideas and a blueprint for international chaos.
Although the idea of conquering the world is of ancient vintage - Alexander, for instance - it
remained for Stalin, then Hitler, to mumble about a new world order. The idea had been
incubating in the United
States ever since someone caused a bullet to crash into the chest of William McKinley. By the
time Hitler and Stalin laid an egg as far as international consolidation was concerned, American
and European counterparts were well into their planning sessions.
The objective was to control the planet, every acre, every spit of land, every waterway, every
resource, and all the people under the umbrella of international bankers and business. All the
clubs of Rome, all the
Bilderbergers, the Tri-lateralists, the U.N. itself, all have proceeded without more than a
perceptible nod to the peoples involved. The Bilderbergers are a secret group functioning as a
think tank and spearhead for the one-world trade concept. Its main objective has been to bring
on a single federalized state for Europe regardless of cultures, diversities and labor disparities
involved. Such a world would allow traders to write their own rules and suborn all attempts at
equity that a decent respect for mankind requires.
The Bilderberger group was founded in 1954 by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, a Nazi who
somehow managed to marry into the Dutch royal family. Bernhard was an SS officer attached to
I.G. Farben, the same I.G. Farben that fed Jewish prisoners totally synthetic meals to determine
whether such fare could sustain an army. All of the prisoners died. Bernhard, however, had
moved on to distinguish himself by a $1 million bribe from the Lockheed Corporation. This
murky tie to international gangsterism was confirmed by the London Times when a zoologist
named Tom Ravendale was killed. A former PR man with the World Wildlife Trust, he was run
over by a car and his briefcase was stolen. He was carrying tapes and documents for a Dutch
The Bilderberger cast of characters is of maximum interest. It includes socialists, politicos,
journalists, even a few misguided royalists. Former U.S. Ambassador George McGee, stated that
"The Treaty of Rome that brought the European Community into being was nurtured at a
Bilderberger meeting." Clearly, available documents reveal that it has always been the goal of
the group to evolve an international order - a new world order, in short.
Paul Warburg, a director of I.G. Farben America, was a fanatical proponent of world
government. Accordingly, he founded the U.S.-based Council on Foreign Relations. Roosevelt
didn't trust the group, but when he died Truman not only allowed them into government, he
literally handed the government to CFR members on a silver platter. They have been in charge
In 1948, Truman set up the pilot organization that ultimately would see to the fast track passage
of GATT, NAFTA, and now lead to the uninhibited transfer of money with nations involved
having little or no say-so over trade, environment, even relief measures.
Almost all Bilderbergers are members of CFR. William Manchester, in his matchless books on
the Krupps and other absconders, related how Standard Oil and I.G. Farben settled accounts for
patent royalties on the bases of soldiers killed during WWII.
This business of playing off one part of the world against another - with war or trade - with
taxpayers paying for the advantages thus manufactured, has been a driving force behind so-called
world government. Indeed, Paul Warburg's son James told a U.S. Senate Committee, "We shall
have world government whether we like it or not."
In August 1944 there was a meeting between the German SS and representatives of seven
German companies, including Krupps, Roehling, Messerschmeidt and Volkswagen. At this
meeting plans were made to build up wealth, power and industrial capacity abroad so that a
strong German empire could be created after the war. Some $500 billion were transferred out of
the country before war's end. A prime objective was to set up liason's with foreign companies,
and the SS made reference to the patent agreements, now collectable.
Some 134 of Von Ribbentrop staffers quietly transferred to the civil service under Adenhauer.
Heinz Twetschler von Falkenstein, secretary of Hitler's Europe Committee, was named by
Adenauer in 1949 as Europe Division of West Germany's Foreign Office, a federated Europe
being the objective and a chess piece in the drive to divest people everywhere of their right to
govern, this choice to be taken off their hands by professionals.
At this late date we are required to recall that Ford and Rockefeller had directors on the board
of U.S.-Farben, which used funding to promote Nazi propaganda, and had three of its directors
found guilty at Nuremburg.
We are also required to recall that the corporate institution set up the Council on Foreign
Relations in the London-based Royal Institute of International Affairs. The intent to impose
limitations on sovereignty was furbished and refurbished by Arnold Toynbee, the historian.
After Word War II, a Pole named Joseph Retinger, a proponent of the world state, set up the
European arm of the movement with CIA funding and with the cooperation of Prince Bernhard.
A model for the grand scheme was Unilever, the oleo-margarine (fats and oils) giant that ducked
out of World War II by moving to South Africa (see Unforgiven, by Charles Walters).
Overlooked by all the think tanks were the foundation economic principles involved. One and
all, they forgot that the act of production has to create the credits for consumption of the
production in the
aggregate. That is why trade can never be the balancewheel and the flywheel for a world
economy. Disparities make one world and free world trade a wild card that mows down first one
nation, then another, finally the entire apparatus tied to this unsavory principle.
The head of Unilever in the 1930s was a friend of Hermann Goering and the SS chief, Himmler.
After the war he became a director of Dresdner Bank of the Daimler-Benz operation; the
Deutsches Bundesbank, and the International Monetary Fund in Washington.
Dr. Geringer of Austrian Branch Unilever was legal adviser with Lord Runceman's negotiations
with the Nazis in 1939. We can trail these international criminals and chart their cynical moves,
and marvel at the
mendacities and duplicity such tracking exposes. Their contempt for constitutional government
and their willingness to demolish human freedoms makes pale into insignificance cruder pogroms
of yesteryear in
which ethnic groups were extinguished for what was perceived as the greater good.
Edward Heath signed away the rights of Englishmen in 1972; Truman and his successors did the
same for the 200 year old U.S. Constitution. What happens next? We can only turn to history
and to the 500-year cycles described by Oswald Spengler. It is not possible for a world to profit
by trade in the aggregate. Only component parts can profit, always at another's expense. Data
reported in The Wall Street Journal and in financial newsletters confirm this, even though not
one pretends to see the long term fallacy of the scenario now afloat.
The World Trade Organization is now adopting dictatorial measures that could make Hitler
wretched with envy. As an opener, world farm prices are scheduled to decline. The EEU is
scheduled to import meat and grain from the United States with no regard to transgenic
contamination of grains or organophosphate-generated prions in meat. Dairy products loaded
with hormones are scheduled to enjoy free entry even though Brits do not aspire to raise a nation
of giants. Democratic principles have no place under WTO. Nor does food safety or any
protection from the ravages of import invasion. Codex Alementarius is enough to frighten the
most fiendish and infernal.
The forces described here take credit for a Dow that must surely reach 9,290 or higher, plus or
minus about 100 points. There will be a break, and that break will be a consequence of the
megalomania exhibited since the Wilson administration. No one can fix the moment in time the
way a speculator would like, but we can be certain that those who have failed to position
themselves correctly will suffer greviously. Bluntly stated, we can expect a Dow decline to the
support line some 45 percent downtrack. This likely will be followed by an explosive upsurge
retracing most of the loss.
All this will be history's cycles telling us that what is mathematically impossible is
mathematically impossible, regardless of what the spin doctors say, regardless of the bleatings of
the international merchant. - Charles Walters
