I asked Jim if he was familiar with the noted author Jack London, and when Jim responded affirmatively, I asked him if he was aware that in London's THE IRON HEEL (1907) the author referred to W. J. Ghent's OUR BENEVOLENT FEUDALISM (1902) as "the textbook" the "oligarchs" would use to rule in the future (see relevant article, "The New World Order," by A. M. Rosenthal in THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 5, 1998, p.A31). Jim had not heard of Ghent, so I informed him that Ghent had been the editor of THE AMERICAN FABIAN, and that our feudal future was laid out in Ghent's book which described the importance of "group fidelity" and indicated that "the teachings of the schools and colleges, the sermons, the editorials...and even the plays at the theaters will be skillfully and persuasively molded."
During President George H.W. Bush's administration, he highlighted the term, "New World Order" along with the term, "points of light," which he connected with service. Jim was familiar with this, but he expressed real surprise when I told him that although I didn't believe that President Bush was an occultist, the only other individual I had found who emphasized the terms "New World Order" and "points of light" connected with service was Alice Bailey, who was probably the leading occultist in the first half of the 20th century and whose works were first published by Lucifer Publishing Company.
Jim spoke up, saying "The New World Order was just President George H. W. Bush's expression for more global cooperation, such as U. N. peacekeeping efforts." I reminded Jim that Mikhail Gorbachev on December 7, 1988 had used the term, "New World Order," BEFORE president Bush had used it, and I emphasized that this new "cooperation" could only occur after the alleged demise of the Soviet Union, after which the United States military was greatly downsized and we were therefore forced to rely more and more upon "peacekeeping efforts" under the auspices of the United Nations, headed by Boutros Boutros-Ghali who was a vice-president of Socialist International (as has been Gro Harlem Brundtland, former prime minister of Norway, who was elected director-general of the World Health Organization on January 27, 1998) until his election as U. N. Secretary-General. The "old-fashioned frontal assault" (Richard Gardner's term) of trying to use the "communist dynamic" mentioned by Lincoln Bloomfield as a means of facilitating a dialectical "compromise for peace" (synthesis of the U.S. and USSR into a World Socialist Government) was now giving way to Richard Gardner's "end run around national sovereignty," using the alleged demise of the "communist dynamic" to cause the U.S. to believe "peace in our time" (a term mistakenly used by British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain after negotiations with Hitler) allowed downsizing our military, thereby forcing our greater reliance upon U.N. "peacekeeping" efforts.
"Don't you remember," I asked Jim, "that in the early 1930s, Communist Party theoretician Dimitry Manuilski stated in Moscow that 'one day we shall start to spread the most theatrical peace movement the world has ever seen. The capitalist countries, stupid and decadent...will fall into the trap offered by the possibility of making new friends....Our day will come in 30-40 years or so....The bourgeoisie must be lulled into a feeling of security'?"
Jim did not remember this, but he did say that he remembered the passage in 1 Thessalonians 5:3 that warns: "For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction shall come upon them...." And he did acknowledge that he had always thought the alleged coup attempt against Gorbachev was suspicious, and that Gorbachev's replacement by Boris Yeltsin was also curious. I reminded Jim that Gorbachev then set up the Gorbachev Foundation, which took over the Presidio, a former military base in San Francisco. Jim had likewise been suspicious of the sudden transformation of the Soviet Union as "evil empire" into a sort of partner with which we developed the Soviet-American Exchange Agreement in 1985, allowing Soviet educators to participate in the development of curricula for some American schools.
I asked Jim if he remembered who signed that agreement for the U.S., and he said that he believed that it was Secretary of State George Shultz. I told Jim that he was correct and asked if he knew that Shultz then became chairman of the Board of Advisers of the Gorbachev Foundation. I also told Jim that former U.S. Senator Alan Cranston (mentioned earlier as a member sponsor of the 1959 United World Federalists convention at which the world government map was distributed) had become chairman of the Board of Directors of the Gorbachev Foundation.
