RELIGION AND WORLD GOVERNMENT
Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.
Mass psychological control via the Tavistock Method was developed by the Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology deputy director John Rawlings Rees, who coined the term "psychologically controlled environment" referring to use of mass media to manipulate certain population groups. On June 18, 1940, Rees said: "We can therefore justifiably stress our particular point of view with regard to the proper development of the human psyche...We have made a useful attack upon a number of professions. The two easiest of them naturally are the teaching profession and the Church." (See MENTAL HEALTH, vol.1, no.4, October 1940.) Note especially his reference to "the Church." In 1945, Rockefeller Foundation medical director Alan Gregg recommended a grant to begin the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations to see if wartime psycholgy could be used in civilian society.
John Foster Dulles had helped prepare the charter for the U.N. at Dumbarton Oaks, and John D. Rockefeller III later gave a check for $8.5 million to the U.N. to purchase the land for its New York City headquarters. Dulles was Secretary of State from 1953 to April 1959, and in that same year (1959), THE MID-CENTURY CHALLENGE TO U.S. FOREIGN POLICY was published by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and claimed: "We cannot escape, and indeed should welcome, the task which history has imposed on us. This is the task of helping to shape a new world order in all its dimensions---spiritual, economic, political, social." Note that the first dimension listed was "spiritual." In 1973, David Rockefeller founded the Trilateral Commission, and Senator Barry Goldwater in WITH NO APOLOGIES (1979) wrote: "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." Note the inclusion of "ecclesiastical" control !
Four years before the founding of the Trilateral Commission, Arnold Toynbee's EXPERIENCES (1969) was published. Toynbee was a member of Cecil Rhodes' Association of Helpers, who in June 1931 had written that "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." And in EXPERIENCES, he forecasted: "I believe that in the twenty-first century human life is going to be a unity in all its aspects and activities. I believe that, in the field of religion, sectarianism is going to be subordinated to ecumenicalism, that in the field of politics, nationalism is going to be subordinated to world government...." Toynbee's belief is, in fact, the goal of the power elite in the 21st century.
Relevant to Methodists, five years after Toynbee's book was published, Methodist Minister George W. Blount authored PEACE THROUGH WORLD GOVERNMENT. It was a history of the World Federalist movment and was dedicated to Robert Lee Humber (Rhodes scholar), who in 1940 "began his one-man crusade for World Government" with his "Declaration of the Federation of the World." In his book, Blount proposed that "the Christian Church should give full and complete support to, and adequate cooperation with, World Federalists, U.S.A....Our hope is that the United Methodist Church, a major Protestant Denomination, will lead the way...It is certain that the Society of Friends, the Quaker Church...would join the Methodist Church in an adequate plan of cooperation with World Federalists. If these two would, and could, lead in a viable effort, other branches of the Christian Church would, hopefully, follow....It is the opportunity of the World Christian Community to demonstrate the essential relationship of the World Brotherhood and World Government....If the Christian Churches of America will cooperate with World Federalism, they can lead America to see that its destiny is to lead the nations into world government....Jesus Christ is the Supreme Reason for the union of nation states in World Government to insure peace....It is for this reason that the Christian Church, in all its branches, should throw its full strength into the effort for world government."
Toward the end of Blount's book, he refers to Lord Alfred Tennyson's "Locksley Hall" (1842), which refers to "the Parliament of man, the Federation of the world." And Blount closes this chapter of his book by writing: "Tennyson's prophecy will come true, 'There the common sense of most shall hold a fretful world in awe, And the kindly earth shall slumber lapt in universal law.' (Locksley Hall, Tennyson)"
Blount also quoted from the BOOK OF DISCIPLINE of the United Methodist Church in 1968, in which one reads: "We believe that Christianity cannot be nationalistic....We believe that the United Nations is a working center of international cooperation which provides the most hopeful avenue leading to peace and world order." Assistant Secretary-General of the U.N. at that time, and for many years, was Robert Muller who advocated in his NEW GENESIS: SHAPING A GLOBAL SPIRITUALITY (1982) "the display (of) the U.N. flag in all houses of worship." He followed this with FRAMEWORK FOR PREPARATION FOR THE YEAR 2000, THE 21st CENTURY AND THE THIRD MILLENNIUM (1994), in which he referred to "a world no longer stifled by absolute, obsolete and abusive national sovereignty."
Four years later, during December 21-28, 1998, just before the beginning of the 21st century, Lucis Trust's Festival Week of the New Group of World Servers (NGWS) was held. Lucis Trust for years maintained the U.N.'s Meditation Room and was founded by occultist Alice A. Bailey, whose works were first published by Lucifer Publishing. Bailey formed the NGWS in 1925, and members now include President Jimmy Carter's The Carter Center, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as other prominent organizations.
Bailey said there is "the Plan" which the NGWS (also called "the Hierarchy of liberated souls" or "Transmitters of the Purpose") are pursuing via "moulding public opinion" and acting "as a synthesizing factor within humanity...to lay the foundations for right human relations and ultimate world unity." In Bailey's pamphlet THE NEXT THREE YEARS (1934-1935-1936), she projected that the outer form of "the World Federation of Nations" would be "taking shape by 2025."
Among the speakers at the 1998 Lucis Trust NGWS event mentioned above was Dan Wheatley, a Baha'i and World Federalist who was also education officer for the One World Trust. At the event, Wheatley revealed: "As a Baha'i, I see myself as a world citizen....I have a great personal belief in the creation of a system of democratic world government....We have to box clever with how we try to attain our goals. One of my dreams is to cast my vote in a Parliament of Humanity....Glorious ends often have very humble beginnings and those of us who would change the world must have the humility to work to dig the foundations of the new world order."
Unfortunately, it would seem the world is well on the way to fulfilling "the Plan" of a synthesized "Common Faith" (the title of humanist John Dewey's 1934 book) World Religion and "World Federation" by 2025. But the danger inherent in demoting Christianity to an equal status with other faiths was warned about long ago, as Pope Pius XI in QUAS PRIMAS (1925) cautioned that there will be no lasting peace "as long as individuals and nations continue to deny or refuse to acknowledge the rule of Christ our Savior....Little by little, the Christian religion has been made the equal of other and false religions and has been lowered to their level....We have already written in sorrow in Our Encyclical UBI ARCANO of this abandonment of Christ on the part of both individuals and nations.....The more the dear name of Our Redeemer is passed over in shameful silence and the more His commandments are ignored, so much the more necessary is it to acclaim Him King and to announce everywhere the rights of His royal dignity and power."
The power elite believe their "Common Faith" World Religion and World Socialist Government will bring peace to the world, but Jesus said in Luke 12:51 "Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division." It is not a "Common Faith" or world government that will save us, but rather only the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
