Shaping The New World Civilization:
A Global Calendar Of Events
By Gary Kah & Steve Frazer
Table Of Contents
If you have been a steady reader of our newsletter over the last two years you will have noticed a marked increase in the number of major one world meetings being held during this period. As we’ve stated in past issues, the year 2000 was a ‘coming out’ celebration for New Age globalists while 2001 was the beginning of the implementation phase.
The past year was characterized by a great deal of posturing, especially on the part of Mikhail Gorbachev. We saw Gorbachev become a regular on the ‘conservative’ lecture circuit. I (Gary) attended one seminar sponsored by Success Events International which had Gorbachev speaking alongside American celebrities – including George Bush, Senior. The meeting was held in Nashville, Tennessee and had approximately 10,000 people in attendance, many of whom were business and community leaders. This meeting gave Gorbachev the opportunity to charm and condition the audience for his proposed changes. I was amazed by his frank remarks concerning the New World Order and the need to drastically empower global structures.
The number one reason Gorbachev cites for global government is the environment. He contends that a global institution is needed to deal with this global problem, and if we don’t act soon, it will be too late – the world will self-destruct. As part of his push for world government, Gorbachev proposes his Earth Charter, a document for which he has become the chief spokesperson and which he believes will save the planet.
The Italian Connection [ Back to Top] ]
On Friday, June 8th Gorbachev’s agenda took a big step forward with the formal public unveiling of the Charter. The ceremony was held in Urbino, Italy – a town approximately 135 miles north of Rome. This ‘great international event’ was sponsored by Italy’s President, Carlo Azeglio Ciampi.
The Earth Charter website (www.earthcharter.org) in its pre-event coverage stated:
MIKHAIL GORBACHEV, President of Green Cross International, Introduces THE EARTH CHARTER.
Mikhail Gorbachev, winner of the Nobel Prize for Peace, President of Green Cross International, co-chairman of the Earth Commission, will present this important document and illustrate the philosophy at the root of the project.
Numerous international and Italian celebrities will be in Urbino for the ceremony; amongst them, Rita Levi-Montalcini winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine and Honorary President of the Italian Green Cross, Steven Rockefeller of the international foundation of the same name, Father Massimiliano Mizzi, General administrator of ‘Dialogo dell’ Opera Frati Minori Conventuali’ of Assisi, the Metropolitan Pitirim of the Moscow Patriarchate and various members of the advisory committee of Green Cross International amongst whom figure celebrities like Shimon Peres, Evgeni Velikov, Arba Diallo, Thor Heyerdhal, Ted Turner and Robert Redford.
This prestigious gathering formulated the Urbino Declaration in support of the principles of the Earth Charter. The Italian National UNESCO Commission and dozens of Italian towns have already joined Urbino’s lead, putting Italy at the forefront of implementing this agenda. The Italian initiatives are expected to serve as a model for environmental action across the world. In fact, according to the Earth Charter website:
Urbino plans to set up a permanent operational nucleus, the Territorial Laboratory, which will work with the Green Cross International network on local sustainable development and will promote guidelines for dialogue on a worldwide basis regarding shared global ethics and values. (emphasis added)
Introducing a ‘New’ Religion [ Back to Top] ]
The underlying purpose of Gorbachev’s environmental proposals becomes apparent when one examines the core beliefs of his sponsors. Their spiritual motivations were abundantly clear on September 29th at the Earth Charter Summits. These summits, hosted simultaneously in 12 cities across America, were linked together by interactive television coordinated by the Ethics and Meaning Center in Tampa, Florida. (The network of Earth Charter Communities in the US is being built from this location.)
Steve Frazer, a researcher, was able to attend the community summit held in Indianapolis – one of the host cities. Steve took extensive notes and gave me permission to share his experiences in this report.
According to Steve, Jerry King, the chairman of the Indianapolis committee, said the goal of these summits was to get professional and community groups involved in a grassroots effort to support the Earth Charter Initiative. The summits were held for the specific reason of launching the Earth Charter campaign in America and getting Americans to sign the Charter – sometimes referred to as a ‘Declaration of Interdependence.’ While all of this may be true, Steve found the main motivation behind the Charter to be spiritual. This was demonstrated in several ways.
For example, the Indianapolis summit convened on the campus of Marian College. Marian happens to be a Franciscan (Catholic) college. At first, Steve thought that the selection of this site for the local summit was merely a coincidence, until the following statement was made by a female dignitary via television:
This is a spiritual day presented by the Allegheny Sisters Foundation, Franciscan sisters supporting a Catholic foundation. Our movement comes across the centuries as we work together to preserve our world.
Steve was also taken aback by the blatant New Age overtones of the summit. One of the afternoon sessions involved Yoga. The programme entry under Yoga stated,
Relax and discipline your mind with this Hindu spiritual art form. Let Kim Allen, a certified yoga instructor, guide you towards the path of enlightenment and liberation.
Another session was titled Tai Chi Chih. The entry stated, “Join Ann Daly as she teaches you the techniques of this spiritual art form. Relaxation and lots of moving energy abound!”
At one point during the summit, the attention shifted to the national level. A prayer was broadcast live from Tampa via satellite, to all participating cities. The prayer included a request for blessings from ‘sister moon and stars-brothers wind and air-sister water-brother fire-sister earth – our mother who feeds us-and sister death’.
This was followed by remarks from each of the conference sites. Then back to Tampa, where David Korten, President of Positive Future’s Network, addressed the audience. He seemed to lay the groundwork for a ‘new’ religion with the following remarks:
Humanity is experiencing an evolutionary step in culture itself. We must free ourselves of a blind trance, redirect our life energy-as we are becoming a new culture. The world is in a cultural trance-a cultural trance that goes back to the old story, that matter is the only reality. The awakening of our cultural conscience is leading to a new story that is emerging, [it] awakens us to a sacred cosmos.
Fifteen billion years ago all energy and mass packed into the size of a pinhead, exploded and was dispersed across space-then four billion years ago earth gave birth to a living organism, a single cell-these cells then transformed into a living web-[then] came the creation of a being with the capacity to reflect on its own consciousness.
The new story, of which the building blocks are thoughts} “spiritual intelligence is God” we must choose the new story to guide our future “this is a time of passage to a new human era” an evolutionary moment, taking a step toward species maturity.
Steven Rockefeller, Commissioner of the Earth Charter Initiative (and Professor of Religion at Middlebury College in Vermont), was the next speaker. Here are a few of his remarks:
We make a mistake to believe terrorism is the major challenge we face today-the only long-term answer is to build together a global culture of peace “a worldwide culture of all peoples”. All global eco-systems are being degraded. Global warming, rising oceans are threatening coastal cities and villages. We urgently need a national and international declaration of interdependence. We have entered a planetary phase of interdependence-global cooperation is essential for “prevention of global warming and economic opportunity ‘. But we face isolationism. No problems in our world can be faced in isolation. Poverty is caused by environmental degradation-this will require new global ethics.
Steve Frazer said that after hearing the speakers, he left this event with the realization that a new global interfaith religion was being introduced. Designed to replace the ‘old story’ of Christianity, this ‘new story’ involved the worship of creation.
The Great Peacemaker [ Back to Top]
Steve was particularly alarmed to see the high level of participation by Catholic organizations in such a blatantly pantheistic event. How can Christianity and the teachings of pantheism be reconciled? The fact is – they can’t. True Christianity and pantheism run in direct opposition to each other. Catholicism, however, has opened the door to pantheism and interfaithism in a major way, as I have documented in chapters 8 & 9 of my book The New World Religion.
It should not come as a surprise that there is a strong Catholic connection to this agenda. The fact that Gorbachev and the Pope are working closely together has been well established in our past publications. It was probably no coincidence that the Earth Charter was officially introduced in Italy. Everywhere we look we are now finding strong Catholic ties into the one world movement. (If you will recall, the registration process for the UN Millennium Forum in May of 2000 was overseen by Franciscans International.)
Just recently, Pope John Paul II called for yet another meeting which will further the cause of interfaith unity. According to a Reuters news article (‘Pope Calls World Religions to Peace Summit,’ Nov. 18, 2001) the Pope has invited the leaders of all the world’s religions to join him in Italy next month. He described this as “an historic moment for humanity.”
The Pope said he hoped the January 24 meeting in the Italian hill city of Assisi, birthplace of St. Francis, would be particularly helpful to improve relations between Christians and Muslims following the September 11 attacks on the United States.
As you may recall, the Pope hosted a similar interfaith meeting in Assisi in 1986. We obtained video footage of that meeting showing occult rituals and ceremonies being practiced in full view of the attendees. Some of you have seen that same footage and have expressed your concerns over the direction the Vatican is taking.
According to Reuters,
The Pope said he wanted the new Assisi summit in the birthplace of the saint most associated with peace “to help overcome contrasts and promote authentic peace.”
Father Vincenzo Fortunato, a spokesman for the Franciscan order in Assisi which hosted the 1986 peace meeting, said: “For us, this shows once more the spiritual genius of the Pope who is again trying to influence the world with the power of prayer. We are delighted he is coming back for this and thank him.”
Things to Come [ Back to Top]
The political, religious and economic components of the ‘new world civilization’ are rapidly coming together. This is reflected in the strengthening alliance between Gorbachev, the Pope, members of the Rockefeller family and other global interests. A growing number of nations and leaders are ‘cozying up’ to this alliance as well.
For example, as you review the calendar of events on the following pages you will notice the visible role that England is playing in the one world agenda. An ever-increasing number of significant international meetings are being held in that country as Tony Blair lends his support to the New World Order.
You will also notice a large number of meetings on the environment and sustainable development. The environment is the central issue being used by globalists to build the legal infrastructure for world government. This developing system, as Gorbachev has hinted, will take shape either through an empowered United Nations or an expanded European Union. (At present, both institutions are being strengthened simultaneously.)
Whatever the case may be, Gorbachev has made clear that he would like his Earth Charter fully ratified by the end of 2002. If this is to take place, a great deal must happen on the world stage over the course of the next 12 months.
While Gorbachev’s environmental strategy represents an important part of the globalization effort, I believe it will be the issues of world peace and security that will ultimately put humanity ‘over the top’ to embrace the new world system.
Terrorism will undoubtedly help create the conditions necessary for global change. We can expect additional unconscionable acts to be perpetrated, especially against Americans and Israelis – possibly even involving nuclear, chemical or biological warfare. If the current escalation of violence continues, it may not be long before the people of the world are willing to sacrifice some, or all, of their sovereignty for the promise of peace. Whoever appears to solve the Jewish/Islamic dilemma will be in a position to rule the world.
Revelation 13 describes a leader who will work through a global political system – using his economic and military influence – to force a type of religious worship upon humanity. This political/religious system, once in place, will be so powerful and corrupt, the return of Jesus Christ will be required to put an end to it. (II Thessalonians 2:8)
Whether this Satanic global system and the return of Jesus are just around the corner or still years away, God is allowing us to see the birth pangs of things to come in order to bring us to full repentance and obedience to Him. Please heed these warnings and do not delay in choosing to follow Jesus Christ!
Scheduled Events [ Back to Top]
The following calendar of events highlights some of the most important upcoming meetings affecting global governance. As prior years have shown, many more events will come to light as we enter and progress through the new year.
Beginning of September (exact date unknown): 55th Annual DPI/NGO Conference
Where: UN Headquarters, New York
Each year, the United Nations Department of Information meets with NGOs from around the world. The purpose is to strengthen the relationship between NGOs and the entire UN system. Over the years, conference issues have included human rights, security and peace, social development, and environmental concerns. How the NGO network can lobby national governments towards empowering the UN is always a key factor in these annual get-togethers.
September 2-11: UN Earth Summit +10 World Conference on Sustainable Development (also known as the Johannesburg Summit and RIO+10)
Where: Johannesburg, South Africa
This is ‘the big event’ for 2002! Much has happened during the past ten years since the 1992 Rio Earth Summit. Many national, state, and county governments have – to some degree or another – worked to implement the recommendations of the Rio Earth Summit. Local Agenda 21 programs have sprung up, and initiatives such as the Earth Charter have been birthed and are moving forward. But pro-world government environmentalists aren’t satisfied. Hence, the United Nations Earth Summit in Johannesburg will focus on what needs to be done to see universal adoption of the 1992 Earth Summit action plans (Agenda 21 and the Convention on Biodiversity are the two main examples). Working alongside the UN Johannesburg event will be a non-governmental forum specifically for NGOs. This forum will work to empower non-governmental organizations in lobbying national governments to accept and put into practice world environmental laws.
It will be interesting to see how governments respond to this renewed call for environmental action. Watch as national, state, and local governments take a fresh interest in global environment and sustainable development programs. Also, be aware that the international community is hoping to eventually have in place a world environment authority, equipped with legal teeth and broad mandates. It is expected that this world authority platform will come up for discussion either during the RIO+10 summit or the parallel NGO forum.
September 23-26: ‘Prospects for Peace in the Middle East’
Where: Wilton Park (see the January 21-25 listing for details on Wilton Park), England
How can the peace process between the PLO and the Israeli government be revived? What role will the European Union have in the effective establishment of a comprehensive peace plan? What role will the Bush administration play in the process? And how might economic, political, and social pressures be applied to implement peaceful change? These questions, and more, will be discussed in the quiet setting of Wilton Park.
October (exact date unknown): Global People’s Assembly
Where: Pune, India
The Global People’s Assembly (GPA) is an embryonic people’s parliament which – organizers hope – will eventually work as a parallel body to the United Nations. Back in April 2000 the GPA held their inaugural session in Samoa. In 2002, the second international gathering will be held at the UNESCO Peace Center in Pune, India. Currently the GPA meets on a global scale every two years. However, regional GPA meetings are held between each bi-annual assembly, with the aim of building local political and public support for the larger body.
Already numerous UN officials have endorsed the GPA, including Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
October 11-23: Kalachakra for World Peace
Where: Graz, Austria
The Kalachakra celebration is a ten-day Buddhist peace ritual with the participation of the Dalai Lama. In 1999, the Kalachakra was performed in Bloomington, Indiana. During this Indiana event, government officials (including the Mayor of Indianapolis and the Governor of Indiana), Hollywood celebrities, and spiritual leaders from a variety of ‘faith traditions’ (including evangelical Christians and Catholics) paid homage to the Dalai Lama.
In essence, the Kalachakra is an occult ritual aimed at world unification – with serious interfaith connotations. Most residents of Graz won’t know it, but with the coming of the Kalachakra, their community will be a central hub for occult activity during 2002.;
October 28-30: ‘The Future of the European Union’
Where: Wilton Park, England
This Wilton Park gathering will deliberate on EU visions for the future. Topics will include balancing EU institutions with national parliaments, exploring the limits of European integration, examining the reality of a detailed European constitution, and the management of an expanded EU region. Participants will also discuss the emerging agenda for the 2004 EU Inter-Governmental Conference.
November 4-8: ‘EU Common Security and Defence Policy’
Where: Wilton Park, England
For the past number of years the EU has been working to establish a Euro-based military force. Already a number of European nations have earmarked military units for integration into this EU military machine. At Wilton Park, EU political and military experts will examine the obstacles and opportunities for the continued creation of this European security force. Relationships with other military players, such as NATO and the UN, will also be discussed.
