PILLARS OF THE "ALLIANCE OF CIVILIZATION" THE EARTH CHARTER
A primary source for what was to become known as the Alliance of Civilizations, was the �Earth Charter Initiative.� Some chroniclers trace it back only as far as the 1987 Brundtland Commission The Earth Charter Declaration contains language startlingly reminiscent of its salvation-based religion baiting precedents, Humanist Manifesto and the Humanist Manifesto II. One prominent Earth Charter proponent, Maurice Strong, was quoted saying that the Earth Charter would become as important as the Ten Commandments. Conflicting histories have been given and it appears that it was in progress, per Maurice Strong, much earlier than the 1987 Brundtland Commission.
This obvious phase of implementation of what former UN Assistant Secretary General Robert Muller and Maurice Strong alike would acknowledge was �The Plan� was being developed on Muller�s Costa Rican turf in 1995. For me 1995 was an interesting year. It was then I discovered the existence of another interesting �eminent personality,� in the form of one Dr. Javier Solana. He also has had enormous input in the �Alliance of Civilizations.�
If the declared agenda of the Alliance of Civilizations of regulating religious schools and their curriculums seem potentially draconian, its incorporated �Earth Charter� is even stranger. It had a Vermont eerie coming out party, complete with drums and masks, preceding on September 9, 2001. This happened at Shelburne Farms, Vermont. �Eminent personalities� who were part of that party included Dr. Steven Rockefeller, Jane Goodall. New Age musician Paul Winter and �peace walker� Satish Kumar.
Clearly, their Moloch was not appeased. Only two tragic days later the Eastern USA skies were aflame. The Twin Towers burned, the Pentagon burned, and an assaulted plane crashed and burned over Pennsylvania. The ritual masks and pagan drumbeat to usher their version of a 21st Century �Ark of the Covenant� clearly had not inoculated the world against war.
Another source of both Alliance of Civilizations and The Earth Charter inputs include Mikhail Gorbachev�s Green Cross. Author Wayne Peterson, a former United States State Department official and Fulbright Scholar executive wittingly or unwittingly reveals much of the possible agenda. He claims to personally knows Mikhail Gorbachev to be open devotee of �Maitreya, the Christ.�
This may be entirely possible. The Earth Charter website says it was �restarted� by Strong and Gorbachev �with the assistance of the government of the Netherlands.� Many New Age guides to Europe in my personal library say Holland is the New Age capital of Europe. Apart from the obvious Findhorn Community (Scotland) claims, this may well be true. As early as 1903 a major Theosophical world congress was held in Amsterdam. During the 1920�s Theosophists were vigorously working to smooth the way for world acceptance of a �Day of Declaration.� Jiddhu Krishnamurti was anointed by Annie Besant, then Theosophical Society leader to be the �new Christ� and lead the world into a �New Order.� Dutch Queen Wilhelmina was an open devotee of Krishnamurti and eagerly awaited that �Day of Declaration,� offering Dutch national radio to broadcast the awaited Maitreyan acceptance speech. World theosophists flocked to the Theosophists Holland Camp Ommen. There they camped and shared vegetarian picnics out while taking part in convocations with �sacred fires.�
At Eerde, Holland, Krishnamurti had a lavish castle formerly belonging to a member of Dutch nobility. There he spent pre-Day of Declaration days with his Annie Besant and other followers. Several years later, in World War II, the Nazi warriors used Camp Ommen as a concentration camp. After Krishnamurti failed to deliver the acceptance speech, or so the official version goes, Annie Besant supposedly dissolved the �Order of the Star� connected with the �Christ�s reappearance.� Reportedly, she returned moneys to donors. I say supposedly, because despite these historical representations, I have amassed a collection of Order of the Star publications going through the mid 1930s and it appears that meetings were going on in Holland as well. Perhaps it was God who was not ready rather than Krishnamurti who expressed regrets from time to time in later life that he had not fully fulfilled his role as �the vehicle for the Christ.�
This is the Earth Charter Initiative�s own version of the time and events:
Bottom line: As one primary pillar of the now shaping Alliance of Civilizations, we have an Soviet atheist turned New Ager combining with an equally fervent Canadian billionaire devotee, both true believers in an alleged �Maitreya the Christ,� the latter particularly working openly with Lucis Trust, the offspring of Alice and Foster Bailey�s original �Lucifer Publishing Company.�
That such is taken seriously in more than esoteric circles is easily proved. One illustration is an article in the Vermont Journal of Environmental Law on December 2, 2001. Had a Christian or Jew dare suggest that this was God�s judgment on an idolatrous world, the outcry would still be heard. However, this suggestion that we all join in common earth worship passed at least the scrutiny of editors of what was supposed to be a respected legal journal:
Where this is heading and where environmentalists and New Agers alike are harmonically converging is clearly in the direction of earth worship and beyond to universe/cosmos adoration. Bundled in with the concept is one of gratitude to [gasp!] Lucifer himself, whom Benjamin Cr�me proudly proclaimed on one unwilling radio debate he did with me in the early 1980s, �made a tremendous sacrifice for our planet.� Evidently Lucifer, per Cr�me, ran a Garden of Eden intervention challenging God to see that we properly �evolved� rather than vegetate in a tropical garden. As a result, per Cr�me, Lucifer is the �prodigal son.� It is startling in personal conversations I have had with some in those circles that God is expected to welcome Lucifer back with open arms. A related belief is that those forever barred from the new Utopian Eden are those who stood in Lucifer�s way. This is a strange perversion of Judeo/Christian theology, widely published from sources such as Futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard and David Spangler. Lucis Trust has offered to cap it all off by allowing the world to use their �Great Invocation,� presumably a forced replacement to �The Lord�s Prayer� and �23rd Psalm.�
Such idolatry is condemned across the board by traditional monotheistic theology. Catholics as part of their baptismal rites say, �Do you reject Satan? The congregation is expected to answer, �I do.� �And all of his works? I do�
The biblical Book of Revelation contains a stern warning in chapter 14 that all should �fear God and give glory to Him for the hour of his judgment is come. Worship God who created the heaven, the earth, the seas, and the fountains of waters.� The Earth Covenant and its new bible called �the Book of Temenos� frighteningly reverse that command to one that inverts it to the very worship condemned: �If any man worships 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.� Those worshiping the �beast and his image� and receiving the mark of his name were to �have no rest day nor night.�
An even earlier proponent, working even closer to the time of the Krishnamurti era envisioned a scenario startlingly close to what now appears to be full process. H. G. Wells wrote in his 1928 book, THE OPEN CONSPIRACY; BLUEPRINTS FOR A WORLD REVOLUTION:
Again, I say, "fasten your seatbelts, friends. We are in for a bumpy ride. Keep the faith!"
