A CHRONOLOGICAL HISTORY OF THE NEW WORLD
D.L. Cuddy, Ph.D.
Arranged and Edited by John
In the mainline media, those who adhere to the position that there is some
kind of "conspiracy" pushing us towards a world government are
virulently ridiculed. The standard attack maintains that the so-called
"New World Order" is the product of turn-of-the-century, right-wing,
bigoted, anti-semitic racists acting in the tradition of the long-debunked
Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, now promulgated by some Militias and
other right-wing hate groups.
The historical record does not support that position to any large degree but
it has become the mantra of the socialist left and their cronies, the media.
The term "New World Order" has been used thousands of times in
this century by proponents in high places of federalized world government. Some
of those involved in this collaboration to achieve world order have been
Jewish. The preponderance are not, so it most definitely is not a Jewish
For years, leaders in education, industry, the media, banking, etc., have
promoted those with the same Weltanschauung (world view) as theirs. Of course,
someone might say that just because individuals promote their friends doesn't
constitute a conspiracy. That's true in the usual sense. However, it does
represent an "open conspiracy," as described by noted Fabian
Socialist H.G. Wells in The Open Conspiracy: Blue Prints for a World
In 1913, prior to the passage of the Federal Reserve Act President Wilson's
The New Freedom was published, in which he revealed:
"Since I entered politics, I
have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. 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."
On November 21, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt wrote a letter to Col.
Edward Mandell House, President Woodrow Wilson's close advisor:
"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... "
That there is such a thing as a cabal of power brokers who control
government behind the scenes has been detailed several times in this century by
credible sources. Professor Carroll Quigley was Bill Clinton's mentor at
Georgetown University. President Clinton has publicly paid homage to the
influence Professor Quigley had on his life. In Quigley's magnum opus
Tragedy and Hope (1966), he states:
"There does exist and has
existed for a generation, an international ... 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 operations 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. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and
have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I
have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies... but
in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown,
and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be
Even talk show host Rush Limbaugh, an outspoken critic of anyone claiming a
push for global government, said on his February 7, 1995 program:
"You see, if you amount to
anything in Washington these days, it is because you have been plucked or
handpicked from an Ivy League school -- Harvard, Yale, Kennedy School of
Government -- you've shown an aptitude to be a good Ivy League type, and so
you're plucked so-to-speak, and you are assigned success. You are assigned a
certain role in government somewhere, and then your success is monitored and
tracked, and you go where the pluckers and the handpickers can put
On May 4, 1993, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) president Leslie Gelb
said on The Charlie Rose Show that:
"... you [Charlie Rose] had
me on [before] to talk about the New World Order! I talk about it all the time.
It's one world now. The Council [CFR] can find, nurture, and begin to put
people in the kinds of jobs this country needs. And that's going to be one of
the major enterprises of the Council under me."
Previous CFR chairman, John J. McCloy (1953-70), actually said they have
been doing this since the 1940s (and before).
The thrust towards global government can be well-documented but at the end
of the twentieth century it does not look like a traditional conspiracy in the
usual sense of a secret cabal of evil men meeting clandestinely behind closed
doors. Rather, it is a "networking" of like-minded individuals in
high places to achieve a common goal, as described in Marilyn Ferguson's 1980
insider classic, The Aquarian Conspiracy.
Perhaps the best way to relate this would be a brief history of the New
World Order, not in our words but in the words of those who have been striving
to make it real.

Wilson, publishes Phillip Dru: Administrator in which he promotes

1913 -- The Federal Reserve (neither federal nor a reserve) is
created. It was planned at a secret meeting in 1910 on Jekyl Island, Georgia by
a group of bankers and politicians, including Col. House. This transferred the

bankers. It is probably the largest generator of debt in the world.

of New York... The character of the Open Conspiracy will now be plainly
displayed... It will be a world religion."
1931 -- Students at the Lenin School of Political Warfare in Moscow
"One day we shall start to
spread the most theatrical peace movement the world has ever seen. The

by the possibility of making new friends. Our day will come in 30 years or
so... The bourgeoisie must be lulled into a false sense of
1931 -- In a speech to the Institute for the Study of International
Affairs at Copenhagen) historian Arnold Toyee said:

discreetly with all our might to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty
out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world. All the time we
are denying with our lips what we are doing with our

some form of social economy."

Dewey, the noted philosopher and educator, calls for a synthesizing of all
religions and "a socialized and cooperative economic order."
Co-signer C.F. Potter said in 1930:
"Education is thus a most
powerful ally of humanism, and every American public school is a school of
humanism. What can the theistic Sunday schools, meeting for an hour once a
week, teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of a
five-day program of humanistic teaching?"
1933 -- The Shape of Things to Come by H.G. Wells is
published. Wells predicts a second world war around 1940, originating from a
German-Polish dispute. After 1945 there would be an increasing lack of public
safety in "criminally infected" areas. The plan for the "Modern
World-State" would succeed on its third attempt (about 1980), and come out
of something that occurred in Basra, Iraq. The book also states,
"Although world government
had been plainly coming for some years, although it had been endlessly feared
and murmured against, it found no opposition prepared
1934 -- The Externalization of the Hierarchy by Alice A.
Bailey is published. Bailey is an occultist, whose works are channeled from a
spirit guide, the Tibetan Master [demon spirit] Djwahl Kuhl. Bailey uses the
phrase "points of light" in connection with a "New Group
of World Servers" and claims that 1934 marks the beginning of
"the organizing of the men and
women... group work of a new order... [with] progress defined by service... the
world of the Brotherhood... the Forces of Light... [and] out of the spoliation
of all existing culture and civilization, the new world order must be
The book is published by the Lucis Trust, incorporated originally in
New York as the Lucifer Publishing Company. Lucis Trust is a
United Nations NGO and has been a major player at the recent U.N. summits.

one-world state"' or "new
world order" comprised of "socialist democracies."

the world's disease." He continues:
"The manifest necessity for
some collective world control to eliminate warfare and the less generally
admitted necessity for a collective control of the economic and biological life
of mankind, are aspects of one and the same process." He proposes that
this be accomplished through "universal law" and propaganda (or

Time, testifies that Hiss was a member of his Communist Party cell.
1946 -- The Teacher and World Government by former editor of
the NEA Journal (National Education Association) Joy Elmer Morgan is
published. He says:

stand the school, the teacher, and the organized

Affairs, sees "a New
World Order" taking shape:
"How far can the life of
nations, which for centuries have thought of themselves as distinct and unique,
be merged with the life of other nations? How far are they prepared to
sacrifice a part of their sovereignty without which there can be no effective
economic or political union?... Out of the prevailing confusion a new world is
taking shape... which may point the way toward the new order... That will be
the beginning of a real United Nations, no longer crippled by a split
personality, but held together by a common faith."
1948 -- UNESCO president and Fabian Socialist, Sir Julian Huxley,
calls for a radical eugenic policy in UNESCO: Its Purpose and Its
Philosophy. He states:
"Thus, even though it is
quite true that any radical eugenic policy of controlled human breeding will be
for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important
for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care
and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake that much that is
now unthinkable may at least become thinkable."

Senator Glen Taylor (D-Idaho). Senator Alexander Wiley (R-Wisconsin) called it
"a consummation devoutly to be
wished for" and said, "I understand your proposition is either
change the United Nations, or change or create, by a separate convention, a
world order." Senator Taylor later stated:
"We would have to sacrifice
considerable sovereignty to the world organization to enable them to levy taxes
in their own right to support themselves."
1950 -- In testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee,
international financier James P Warburg said:

government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world
government will be achieved by consent or by conquest."
April 12, 1952 -- John Foster Dulles, later to become Secretary of
State, says in a speech to the American Bar Association in Louisville,
Kentucky, that "treaty laws can
override the Constitution." He says treaties can take power
away from Congress and give them to the President. They can take powers from
the States and give them to the Federal Government or to some international
body and they can cut across the rights given to the people by their
constitutional Bill of Rights. A Senate amendment, proposed by GOP Senator John
Bricker, would have provided that no treaty could supersede the Constitution,

dictatorship in the United States can be laid by strictly legal means, unseen

bureaucratic elite which believes our Constitution is outmoded and is sure that
it is the winning side.... All the strange developments in the foreign policy
agreements may be traced to this group who are going to make us over to suit
their pleasure.... This political action group has its own local political
support organizations, its own pressure groups, its own vested interests, its
foothold within our government, and its own propaganda

international political tasks....These are some of the reasons pressing us to

voluntary service... and our dedicated faith in the brotherhood of all

is published. Author Benjamin Bloom states:
"... a large part of what we
call 'good teaching' is the teacher's ability to attain affective objectives
through challenging the students' fixed beliefs."
His Outcome-Based Education (OBE) method of teaching would
first be tried as Mastery Learning in Chicago schools. After five
years, Chicago students' test scores had plummeted causing outrage among
parents. OBE would leave a trail of wreckage wherever it would be tried and
under whatever name it would be used. At the same time, it would become crucial
to globalists for overhauling the education system to promote attitude changes
among school students.

"In my view The Trilateral
Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and
consolidate the four centers of power -- political, monetary, intellectual, and
ecclesiastical. All this is to be done in the interest of creating a more
peaceful, more productive world community. What the Trilateralists truly intend
is the creation of a worldwide economic power superior to the political

materialism they propose to create will overwhelm existing differences. As
managers and creators of the system they will rule the

thought control exists in the United States... the citizenry is indoctrinated

most cases, a Soviet veto, then we could begin to transform the shape of the

mother had been members of the Communist party. Bernstein's father tells his
son about the book:
"You're going to prove [Sen.
Joseph] McCarthy was right, because all he was saying is that the system was
loaded with Communists. And he was right... I'm worried about the kind of book
you're going to write and about cleaning up McCarthy. The problem is that
everybody said he was a liar; you're saying he was right... I agree that the
Party was a force in the country."
1990 -- The World Federalist Association faults the American
press. Writing in their Summer/Fall newsletter, Deputy Director Eric Cox
describes world events over the past year or two and declares:

developments. But most federalists know what is happening... And they are not
frightened by the old bug-a-boo of sovereignty."
September 11, 1990 -- President Bush calls the Gulf War an
opportunity for the New World Order. In an address to Congress
entitled Toward a New World Order, Mr. Bush says:
"The crisis in the Persian

live in harmony.... Today the new world is struggling to be

begin a journey into a... new age."

"What is at stake is more

several of the conference participants joined some 100 other world leaders for
another closed door meeting of the Bilderberg Society in Baden
Baden, Germany. The Bilderbergers also exert considerable clout
in determining the foreign policies of their respective governments. While at
that meeting, David Rockefeller said in a speech:
"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 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 supranational sovereignty of
an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national
auto-determination practiced in past centuries."

"We have a much bigger

deliberately intruding into the sovereignty of a sovereign nation... Now this
is a marvelous precedent (to be used in) all countries of the world...
October 29, 1991 -- David Funderburk, former U. S. Ambassador to
Romania, tells a North Carolina audience:
"George Bush has been
surrounding himself with people who believe in one-world government. They
believe that the Soviet system and the American system are converging."
The vehicle to bring this about, said Funderburk, is the United Nations,
"the majority of whose 166 member states are socialist, atheist, and
Funderburk served as ambassador in Bucharest from 1981 to 1985, when he
resigned in frustration over U.S. support of the oppressive regime of the late
Rumanian dictator, Nicolae Ceausescu.
October 30, 1991: -- President Gorbachev at the Middle East Peace
Talks in Madrid states:
"We are beginning to see
practical support. And this is a very significant sign of the movement towards

able to move toward a new world order... relying on the relevant mechanisms of

the Global Nation by Strobe Talbott, Rhodes Scholar, roommate of Bill
Clinton at Oxford University, CFR Director, and Trilateralist, in which he
"All countries are basically
social arrangements... No matter how permanent or even sacred they may seem at
any one time, in fact they are all artificial and temporary... Perhaps national
sovereignty wasn't such a great idea after all... But it has taken the events
in our own wondrous and terrible century to clinch the case for world
As an editor of Time, Talbott defended Clinton during his
presidential campaign. He was appointed by President Clinton as the number two
person at the State Department behind Secretary of State Warren Christopher,

Boutros-Boutros Ghali, who asserts:
"It is undeniable that the
centuries-old doctrine of absolute and exclusive sovereignty no longer
stands... Underlying the rights of the individual and the rights of peoples is
a dimension of universal sovereignty that resides in all humanity... It is a
sense that increasingly finds expression in the gradual expansion of
international law... In this setting the significance of the United Nations
should be evident and accepted."
1993 -- Strobe Talbott receives the Norman Cousins Global Governance
Award for his 1992 Time article, The Birth of the Global
Nation and in appreciation for what he has done "for the cause of

world peace and world government.... Strobe Talbott's lifetime achievements as
a voice for global harmony have earned him this recognition... He will be a
worthy recipient of the Norman Cousins Global Governance Award. Best wishes...
for future success."
Not only does President Clinton use the specific term, "world
government," but he also expressly wishes the WFA "future
success" in pursuing world federal government. Talbott proudly accepts the
award, but says the WFA should have given it to the other nominee, Mikhail

"Wise Men" (e.g. Paul Nitze, Dean Acheson, George Kennan, and John J.
"assiduously guarded it
[American foreign policy] for the past 50 years... They ascended to power
during World War II... This was as it should be. National security and the
national interest, they argued must transcend the special interests and
passions of the people who make up America... How was this small band of
Atlantic-minded internationalists able to triumph ... Eastern internationalists
were able to shape and staff the burgeoning foreign policy institutions... As
long as the Cold War endured and nuclear Armageddon seemed only a missile away,
the public was willing to tolerate such an undemocratic foreign policy making
1994 -- In the Human Development Report, published by the UN
Development Program, there was a section called "Global Governance
For the 21st Century". The administrator for this program was
