"THE THIRD WORLD AS A MODEL FOR THE NEW WORLD ORDER"
THE EMERGENCE OF A NEW "CORPORATE-TERRORIST" NEW WORLD ORDER
For the past several decades, a New World Order has been
emerging. It is a globe-girdling
"religio-political-corporate-terrorist" state based on the model the
CIA, United Fruit Corporation and Wycliffe Bible Translators (SIL) pioneered in
The "managers" rule the country at the behest and in the interest of American corporate power, which itself is sustained by the machinations and intrigues of the CIA, which in turn is backed up by the guns of the American military. It is an Orwellian realm of "Newspeak" in which there is very little connection between perception and reality; where "freedom" means "slavery;" "democracy" means rule of the many by the few in the interest of corporate profits; and organized religion is utilized as a significant and extremely consequential instrument of state control (an aspect of America's New World Order that very few in the United States are aware of).
For the eighty percent of the population which falls into the "worker-serf" category, it is a notably cruel and utterly despotic system. It's held together in two ways: first, by police forces given to fascist-like brutality, torture, terror, and, on extreme occasions, the use of death squads; and second, by an organized religious system which has mastered "magic," "mysticism," and Pavlovian psychological techniques. These techniques are based on a strategy of rewards and punishments involving the dissemination (and, concomitantly, the withholding) of not only "spiritual favors," but welfare funds and a myriad of other essential state services which such countries channel through the church (i.e., through both conservative Catholic and Protestant functionaries and hierarchies).
THE RELIGIOUS COMPONENT OF NEW
In this connection, it should be remembered - especially by those who are steeped in the "surface" secularism of the West - that the religious component in America's Third World "client states" is extremely important because it serves to legitimize state power in societies that are essentially undemocratic and cannot, as a result, rely on the "will of the people" as the source of their legitimacy; hence, the resort to the notion of the "will of God" (a "will" which, of course, only organized religion can interpret to the people). Finally, all this is enhanced by the use of mass propaganda, control of the press, and high-tech methods of population control.
There is no place in such an environment for real democracy, nor can there be much occasion in this kind of system for the exercise of a legitimate, Bible-based form of Christianity where the church serves the interests of heaven (and the poor) rather than the interests of this present evil world (and the rich). It's a universe where the leaders of the church have been pressed into service as population "controllers" (overseers and "labor managers") for the wealthy, and whose primary function is to "mold" and "fit" the "worker-serf" portion of the population into useful and effective "cogs," "gears," "sprockets," and "ratchets" in the elite's corporate machine. Indeed, the very real fact of the matter is, that's the primary function of religion in such systems: to validate and certify (in the name of God) the elite's control of the "worker-serf" portion of the population, and to pacify them insofar as that control is concerned.
Being a "good Christian" in such a world means
being a compliant and docile worker, which, ipso facto, means avoiding
membership in unions or worker organizations of any kind; knowing how to say, "Yes
sir" and "No sir" to your "Betters;" not being a
"complainer;" avoiding welfare even if that translates practically
into holding down several jobs at the same time in order to make ends meet -
and making your wife and children do the same; not fussing when elections are
rigged; not fretting about police brutality or questioning the authorities when
your neighbors and loved-ones are hauled "downtown" on trumped up
charges, and so forth. This is what is meant
when people say that this person or that person is a "good Christian"

Dr. Noam Chomsky of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
a dissident American intellect whom the New York Times said is "arguably
the most important intellectual alive" today, says that for the past fifty
years the evidence as to what Corporate America has been up to in the world at
large has been clear enough. Chomsky writes that—contrary to what most people
believe who are given to "conspiracy theories" (and the belief in
secret cabals)—the proof as to what the

"During World War II, American
planners were well aware that the
position of hegemony that had few historical parallels, and they organized and met in order to deal with this situation.
"From 1939 to 1945, extensive studies were conducted by the Council on Foreign Relations (which is essentially the nexus around which the American business elites and the American foreign policy establishment coordinate their activities) and the State Department. One group was called the War-Peace Studies Group, which met for six years and produced extensive geopolitical analysis and plans.... These groups...involved every top planner in the State Department ...
"The conception that they developed is what they called
'Grand Area' planning. The Grand Area
was a region that was to be subordinated to the needs of the American economy
(after the war). As one planner put it,
it was to be the region that is 'strategically necessary for world control'.
The geopolitical analysis (that these men produced) held that the Grand Area
had to include at least the Western Hemisphere, the Far East, and the former
British Empire, which we (i.e., America) were then in the process of
dismantling and taking over ourselves.
This is what is called 'anti-imperialism' in American scholarship [i.e.,
the dismantling of the British Empire (as well as the French, Dutch, and
Portuguese empires) and the subsequent installation of "native"
elites in their place who were ultimately controlled by American corporate
power and the CIA—which precisely describes the process which took place in the
Middle East (particularly in Iran and Saudi Arabia), in the Dutch East Indies
(Indonesia), in French Indochina (Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos), etc.] The Grand
Area was also to include Western and

Of course, as any reader here should know who has paid attention to what we have been saying on this website over the past several years, what Chomsky is describing above is precisely what we have depicted in numerous articles we have published: that after the war the elites in the United States—under the rubric of "defending the world against communism"—set about to create for themselves a world-wide empire which, if one were to diagram it on a piece of paper, would approximate organizationally a multi-tiered pyramid with the United States at the apex of the pyramid; then Western Europe and Japan on the second tier; on the third tier, those nations considered to be vital to the security interests of the United States (i.e., nations like Canada, Australia, Korea, South Africa, Israel, etc.); and finally, on the fourth tier, those nations that we (and Chomsky) call American "client states"—countries that the U.S. system uses as sources of raw materials and cheap labor (i.e., countries like Brazil, Chile, Guatemala, most of the countries of the Middle East, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, etc.).
There are, no doubt, a great many people who will find it difficult to believe that the driving force behind the creation of American world-hegemony was NOT the war on communism, but pure, naked greed–and that world-hegemony would have been pursued by the United States whether the Soviet Union had existed or not. But such is the case! Dr. Christopher Layne, a senior fellow in foreign policy studies at the Cato Institute, and Dr. Benjamin Schwartz, an analyst in the International Policy Department at the Rand Corporation, explain in an article which appeared in Foreign Policy entitled, "American Hegemony - Without an Enemy:"
"It is commonly held that the
Cold War's end allows the

THE CREATION OF AN EMPIRE OF "SLAVE STATES"
No!—as Layne and Schwartz explain, it wasn't containment of the Soviets that was the primary force behind the drive toward American world-hegemony, but the creation of an empire of "slave nations" that the American elite [and the elites in Western Europe and Japan who were eventually (but only partially) cut in on the scheme in the late 1960s and '70s] could use to enrich itself beyond it's wildest imaginings—a system of "chattel populations" and vast stores of mineral wealth and farm products that today provides the cheap labor and inexpensive raw materials that make the empire "roll and go"—and one needs to understand and appreciate this fact if one is ever to come to any appreciation of what the elites have been up to since the end of the Second World War. It's an empire whose economy has in many ways come to resemble the South's economy before the Civil War (after all, that's what Southern slavery was all about, cheap labor)—a system (i.e., the Southern slave system) that produced unheard of wealth for a few on the top at the expense of black slaves and "poor white southern trash" [who had been tricked through the device of "racism" to believe that slavery benefited them (which it did not)] on the bottom.
The model for this system—as we indicated earlier—was

This is what the GATT (and later the WTO) has been all about – producing this regime of "free trade" for the benefit of profits which were destined for the pockets of people like the Cabot-Lodges, the Rockefellers, the Olins, the Pews, the Mellons, the DuPonts, etc.—the kind of people who live in the Hamptons and sip martinis at Burning Tree Country Club and at the Broadmore—people who consider the rest of mankind as existing merely for their pleasure and at their "beck and call."
WHAT THE AMERICAN SYSTEM IS NOT ABOUT: HUMAN RIGHTS, RAISING LIVING STANDARDS AND DEMOCRACY

lucid accounts of the planning behind (

That would certainly come as a shock to most Americans!—i.e., that the New World Order that the U.S. has constructed is not concerned about "human rights," the "raising of the living standards," and "democracy?" But that's what PPP23 said! - and that's what was meant! Take human rights. Chomsky writes:
"Now actually, that (i.e., the
related to human rights ... The leading American specialist on human rights in
Comparative Politics (January 1981), in which he investigated exactly that question. He asked how the human rights climate in a country was correlated with American aid. He chose a very narrow conception of human rights, what he called 'anti-torture rights', that is, the right to be free from torture by the government and so on. He found that there is a relationship between human rights and American foreign policy: namely, the more the human rights climate deteriorates, the more American aid increases. The correlation was strong ... To use his words, 'Aid has tended to flow disproportionately to Latin American governments which torture their citizens' ... This might suggest that Kennan understated the case (i.e., that human rights are merely irrelevant to America's foreign policy): human rights are not irrelevant; rather, we (i.e., America) have a positive hatred of them. We send aid to precisely those governments which torture their citizens, and the more effectively they do so, the more we'll aid them. At least that's what the evidence shows in this and other studies."
Of course, a correlation isn't an explanation for what's
happening. We still need an
explanation. One possible explanation is
that the elites who run American foreign policy, and the business men that
benefit from that policy, just like torture—so the more a government tortures
its citizens, the more
So what then is the explanation? - what
can account for the positive correlation between our support of governments
that torture their citizens and the aid we give them? There are several studies which suggest an
explanation. For example, there's one by
Dr. Edward Herman, who investigated the same sort of thing that Schoultz did,
but on a worldwide basis. Herman found
the same correlation: the worse the human rights climate in a given country in
But he also carried out a supplementary study which factored into his correlation new data which gave some insight into the reason behind this relationship - such things as:  The investment climate (e.g., can foreign corporations repatriate profits? Can they buy up local companies, and by doing so, drive them out of business? Do "locals" have to own a percent of the corporation, etc.?);  The climate for business operations (e.g., do the host countries demand compliance to environmental standards?- or do they even have any? What about trade unions? What about the right of workers to organize? etc.?  Police control (e.g., can the police be counted on in any kind of showdown with local labor organizations and the local populace?); etc.
It turned out there was a very close correlation: the lower
the environmental standards were, the lower the wage scale was, the easier it
was to return the profits of a multinational company's operations in a foreign
country to elite shareholders in the United States, the harder it was for labor
unions to organize, the more brutal the police were insofar as labor organizers
were concerned, etc., the more American aid flowed into the country. Herman's
work here, then, gives a plausible explanation: American aid to a foreign
country is tied to the predatory needs of the American business community. It is not based on humanitarian concerns, but
on the financial concerns of a small elite of greedy investors in the
And that's the answer:
"So how do you improve the
business climate in ... (
RAISING LIVING STANDARDS
Well, so much for human rights. What about raising the living standard? In
So much, then, for the second element, raising
of living standards. Then what about
democratization? Well, the sad fact is,
the United States has a miserable history of overthrowing popularly elected
governments in Latin America - whether the government of Goulert in Brazil,
Arbenz in Guatemala, or Allende in Chile.
And the reason?
The more a country is democratic, the more it is likely to be responsive
to the public, and hence committed to the dangerous doctrine that "the
government has a direct responsibility for the welfare of ALL the people,"
not just the transcendent needs of
Egged on by American multinationals doing business in the

overthrown. In 1965, there was another coup by liberal, reformist officers—a

CHRISTIANITY & AMERICA'S "CLIENT STATES"
Now in all of this, Americans—secular and non-secular alike—would by utterly surprised to learn of the extremely close connection between American business elites [the same ones who have been responsible for the brutal overthrow of countless popularly elected governments in Central and South America (and elsewhere) for the sake of investor profits back home] and organized religion in these "client states." It's a connection which these same elites purposely obscure in the United States, but one which they openly promote and shamelessly extol in the client states themselves—and so much so that one could not be faulted in thinking that the primary motivation of American business in the Third World is to spread the Gospel of Christ.
Take just one example, the "BIG MONEY" behind Wycliffe Bible Translators; and as you mull over the names of these individuals, foundations and corporations, ask yourself what real interest do these people have in the Gospel of Christ other than using it as a FRONT to advance their business interests: the Pew family (Sun Oil Company), the Pitcairn family (Pittsburgh Plate Glass), Clark Breeding (Aztec Oil), Nelson Bunker Hunt (Placid Oil), James Ezell, the LeTourneau family (earth moving, lumber, cattle), Weldon Thomas, Frank Sherril (S&W Cafeterias), Laurence Roth (construction), the Belk family, (department stores), G.S. Jones, the Woodward Foundation, Tramel Crow (real estate), Samuel Milbank (Corn Products Corp.—ranching, mining, mutual funds, banking, the Borden Company), the Cero de Pasco Corporation (Peru), Standard Oil of New Jersey (Humble Oil, International Petroleum), Albert Johnson (insurance), the Weyerhauser Corporation (lumber), Aaron Saenz (sugar, banking), Amos Baker (oil), Henry C. Crowell and the Henry P. And Susan Crowell Trust (the Quaker Oats fortune), Kejn Foundation, Maxey Jarman (GENESCO Corporation), Robert Welch (real estate), Earl Miller (grocery stores), the Irvine Foundation (citrus ranching, real estate), Herbert Rankin (department stores), Swift and Company (cattle and meat packing), the Olin Foundation, etc. [Please see chapter 31 ("Mistaken Identities") in Gerald Colby's and Charlotte Dennett's book, Thy Will Be Done, particularly the chart on page 488.]
This is to say nothing insofar as Wycliff's connection to the Rockefeller interests (beyond Standard Oil of New Jersey)—for example, Standard Oil of California (Chevron), Standard Oil of Indiana (AMOCO), Marathon Oil, Eastman Kodak, Xerox, AT&T, Monsanto, Dow Chemical, General Electric, Olin Mathieson, Rockwell Manufacturing, Chrysler, Bendix, IBM, Motorola, etc. [Please see chapter 25 ("Building the Warfare State") in Gerald Colby's and Charlotte Dennett's book, Thy Will Be Done, particularly the chart on page 373.]
THERE IS A PRICE TO BE PAID
Yes!—there is a price to be paid for the elite's money. And what exactly is that price?—support for
the rapacious and predatory economic policies the business elites are pursuing
in the Third World—the consequence of which is the corruption of one's
soul. For example, the
Religious Right (and Wycliff's, and any number of other Protestant groups,
churches and denominations) slavish support for the American business
community's overthrow of the popularly elected Goulert government in
And then there is the matter of the aid that the Protestant missionaries (and most particularly Gospel Outreach in Eureka, California) gave to the homicidal government of Rios Montt in Guatemala, who—while his army was carrying out a bloodthirsty campaign against the Indians at the instigation of various U.S. conglomerates in the area—preached the Gospel over the radio to his followers! In the 1980s alone, the Guatemalan military and its death squads killed over 100,000 people. Entire Indian villages were massacred. A front-page article in the Sept. 20th New York Times (1996) made a rare admission. It said that the conflict had its roots in the CIA / United Fruit / Wycliffe machinations of the 1950s—a conflict in which Wycliffe "gave up" hundreds and hundreds of its converts to the tender mercies of United Fruit's death squads, some of whom were in the personal employ of Cam Townsend himself.
And what about the support Juan Carlos Ortiz [and, ipso
facto, the so-called "Ft. Lauderdale Five" (Ern Baxter, Derrick
Prince, Bob Mumford, etc.)] gave to the Argentine military junta which had been
installed in power through the coordination of American business interests, the
CIA, and the Argentine military (which had been trained at the "School of
the America's" which was initially located at U.S. installations in Panama
and was later moved to Fort Benning, Georgia)? [Both groups (Gospel Outreach's
The list of examples here is endless and horrifying—and it's true not only of Central and South America but throughout the world—in the Philippines, in Indonesia, in Taiwan, in Korea, etc: Christian relief service workers who were really military intelligence officers; CIA money funneled through Protestant missionaries for the purpose of overthrowing Allende in Chile; missionaries in Columbia who where induced to run a Cold War propaganda machine targeting the peasants they were supposed to be witnessing to; other Christians who believed they were fighting illiteracy, but who were unwittingly turned over to the CIA by their missionary boards to gather details on people's lives to be used later by death squads; Protestant missionaries who informed on their parishioners who were members of labor organizations.
Nonetheless, it's not as if the organized Christian community is ashamed of all this; indeed, quite the opposite! Cubie Ward, a leading American evangelical, unwittingly betrayed the feelings of most Christians regarding the church's involvement with the death squads (and ipso facto, the CIA and American multinationals) in an article that appeared in his Paralife Ministries newsletter, Living Word, in the late 1980s. The article reads in part:
"Killing for the joy of it is wrong, but killing because it is necessary to fight against an anti-Christ system (i.e., communism) ... is not only right, but the duty of every Christian."
KILLING FOR THE SAKE OF CHRIST
A frightening glimpse into this kind of thinking was
revealed in an extraordinary article, "How Argentina Won Its War Against Leftist Terrorism," which appeared in the
"Don't say it was I who said so, but the victory over ... (the left) began the day my wife said, 'There's no way out except to kill these monsters:
we've got to kill them all'!"
That's evidently what was going on when Indians that Dr.
Myrna Cunningham was ministering to in the border area between
The attackers who had been involved in the rape later reported that they had been told by their pastors that killing and even torture (when necessary to obtain vital information) were permissible in a "just war" against an anti-Christ system.
Then there's the episode involving the Nicaraguan village of
"... they don't massacre people ... They massacre demons, and these people are demon possessed: they're communists ..."
PLEASE TAKE CAREFUL NOTE!
Now we ask you to take careful note of all that we have said here, and in doing so, remember, the kind of state we have been describing—the "religio-political-corporate-terrorist" state—comes into being whenever the elites control a population to the extent that they no longer can rely on "the will of the people" to legitimize their continued control. When—despite their machinations, their carefully rigged elections, their buying up of legislators and judges, etc.—they can no longer trick the people into believing that their will counts for anything, that's when the switch must ultimately be made. It's when this point is reached—and the people take to the streets as they did in the 1960s with regard to Civil Rights and the War in Vietnam—that the elites must rely on something else beyond trickery. That's when the police and the army are called out; and that's when the elites make an appeal to God (and organized religion) for their legitimacy. And we are but a hairs breadth away from that point today.
When that happens, everything that we have
described to you insofar as elite control of the populations of the
The one thing the elites fear most is people in the streets demonstrating, and more democracy—which they believe will ultimately lead to the confiscation of their wealth.
The elites are more than cognizant of what happened in the French Revolution of 1789 and the Russian Revolution of 1917, and what almost happened to them here in this country during the Great Depression and the labor unrest of the 1930s. My, how the Henry Fords, the DuPonts, the Harrimans, the Vanderbilts, the Morgans, etc. got religion then!
That's when religion is brought into the equation to stabilize things.
It is time to wake up and realize what is really happening in the world. Adolf Hitler said, "How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think." All hope for change lies in an awakened population. And if things cannot be changed, you need to be awake to prepare for what is coming.
