Totalitaria looms – rise of the UN’s global governance agenda


How The UN Has Been Planning A Global Government For Decades

UN documents leaked to Fox News last month reveal the United Nations is gearing up for a ‘planetary announcement’ in 2015 that will usher in a 15 year programme that the UN boasts will be “the most transformative in human history”. In this exclusive extract from his new book Totalitaria, IAN WISHART gives you a glimpse at what’s driving the new regime:

World War One, with its origins in the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires, and the ambitions of a united Germany, had a massive impact on the civilised world. Millions had died in the war, millions more from the global Spanish flu epidemic that followed as the troops came home in overcrowded and disease-ridden transport ships.

The histories of the twentieth century’s two great confrontations have been extensively covered by others, and need no detailed repetition here.

Weary of battle, world leaders established the League of Nations – with the notable absence of the USA – in the hope of settling future disputes without bloodshed. The United States came on board in a different way a decade later when it signed the Kellogg-Briand Treaty for the Renunciation of War in 1929:[1]

“I congratulate this assembly,” said US President Herbert Hoover, “the states it represents, and indeed, the entire world upon the coming into force of this additional instrument of humane endeavour to do away with war as an instrument of national policy and to obtain by pacific means alone the settlement of international disputes… an act so auspicious for the future happiness of mankind has now been consummated. I dare predict that the influence of the Treaty for the Renunciation of War will be felt in a large proportion of all future international acts.”

Key signatories to the Treaty, apart from the US, included Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Italy and Germany. Within ten years, despite a “binding” declaration of peace, a war the size of which the world had never seen was breaking out as the planet went through a military version of groundhog day.

From 1939 to 1945, virtually the entire globe was involved in conflict at some level.

In the ashes of World War 2, world leaders again looked for ways to end such horrors. Clearly, ill-fated treaties like the Kellogg-Briand Renunciation of War were not going to cut the mustard any longer.

 The mantle of world policeman had passed from Great Britain to the United States, whose late entry into WW2 had proved decisive. The League Of Nations, established after WW1, had obviously proven ineffective at preventing the rise of Adolf Hitler and the re-armament of the German state; something stronger was needed.

The global conflict of 1939-1945 had left virtually no corner of the world untouched. Of necessity, almost every sovereign power on the planet had been forced to choose sides and work within international treaties and agreements to fight in cooperation with other like-minded countries.

The doors of international cooperation opened by the war on the Nazis could not be closed again. The Allies had demonstrated that international alliances could be truly effective in policing the globe. One of the first symbols of the new hope to arise was the United Nations.

Leaders and diplomats met in San Francisco late 1945 to thrash out the fine print for the new organisation. As President Obama recently described it:

“After the Yalta Conference, shortly before the United Nations was founded, President Roosevelt spoke of what it would take to achieve a lasting and durable peace.  ‘The structure of world peace,’ he said, ‘cannot be the work of one man or one party or one nation.  It cannot be an American peace or a British, a Russian, a French, or a Chinese peace.  It cannot be a peace of large nations or of small nations.  It must be a peace which rests on the cooperative effort of the whole world’. 

“These words,” said Obama, “are more true today than ever, whether it’s preventing the spread of deadly weapons, promoting democratic governance, or fighting daily battles against poverty and hunger and deprivation.  International peace, development, and security will not be achieved by one nation or one group of nations.  It must be the work of all of us.”[2]

Roosevelt, the first person to use the phrase “United Nations” to describe the Allies during WW2, died on the eve of the establishment of the UN with a sudden brain haemorrhage – it was early April 1945. By the time the diplomats and leaders signed off on the UN Charter in October that year, the war had ended.

In the decades since, there has been huge support internationally for the United Nations concept, and what it may lead to. French leader Charles de Gaulle, for example, ominously remarked, “Nations must unite in a world government or perish.”[3]

“It seems to many of us that if we are to avoid the eventual catastrophic world conflict, we must strengthen the United Nations as a first step toward world government,” opined US newsman Walter Kronkite, “and [empower]police to enforce its international laws and keep the peace…To do that, of course, we Americans will have to yield …It would take a lot of courage, a lot of faith in the new order.”[4]

You can see, there, why the news media are so sycophantic to the UN agenda, it’s in their blood.

The UN might have been born as a political organisation, but few will know that one of its driving forces was a New Age lawyer, Robert Muller. Born in Belgium, March 11, 1923, Muller had known the horrors of the Nazis as a resistance fighter. His experiences led him to write an essay on how to govern the world, and that essay secured him an internship at the UN in 1948. The topic had been chosen by the UN itself, so its agenda has been reasonably plain from its inception.

Muller quickly rose through the ranks as one of the UN’s top bureaucrats. In a 40 year career he was at the centre of forming most of the UN’s big-ticket policies, as UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon noted in a 2011 eulogy:[5]

“His creativity and influence were instrumental in the conception of scores of multilateral bodies, including the UN Development Programme, the World Food Programme, the UN Population Fund, and the World Youth Assembly — some of the key endeavours that define the United Nations and our global work. He knew that these could not be impersonal institutional structures but, rather, had to be alive with vision, compassion and a powerful sense of human unity.

“Dr. Muller brought precisely that spirit to whatever task he undertook. For him, the entire human family was his family. He also helped orchestrate the first-ever UN Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm in 1972, and was deeply involved in many other global gatherings. His career spanned the decades, the issues, and even almost all the professional ranks of the Secretariat – starting from the P1 level and rising steadily to Assistant-Secretary-General, directly serving three of my predecessors. He also had a tremendous imprint on global education, including through the University of Peace, and richly earned the UNESCO Prize for Peace Education in 1989.”

It was Muller who gave us the climate change bandwagon and whose philosophies infused the global “peace” movement. He was the man who pushed to enlist the world’s youth in UN affairs (for reasons which will shortly become clear). But who, exactly, was this Rasputin? He didn’t see himself as a diplomat, he saw himself as an evangelist for the New Age, and was directing the United Nations to a position of global supremacy so it could usher in a new spiritual power to govern the planet. I kid you not. Here is Muller endorsing the words of his spiritual advisor Sri Chinmoy:[6]

“No human force will ever be able to destroy the United Nations, for the United Nations is not a mere building or a mere idea; it is not a man-made creation.”

Really? According to Muller and Chinmoy, the United Nations is supernaturally-driven, so if you think of it as an independent, secular institution you are in for a shock:

“The United Nations is the vision-light of the Absolute Supreme, which is slowly, steadily and unerringly illuminating the ignorance, the night of our human life.

“The divine success and supreme progress of the United Nations is bound to become a reality. At his choice hour, the Absolute Supreme will ring His own victory-bell here on Earth through the loving and serving heart of the United Nations.”

Who knew the UN was “divine” in nature, ordained by “the Absolute Supreme”?

In case you are wondering who the coy phrase “Absolute Supreme” might refer to, don’t get distracted, we will get to that shortly.

Muller and Sri Chinmoy are not the only senior UN figures to have invoked the concept of “the Divine” in regard to the mission of the United Nations. You’ll recall at the start of this book we talked about a “convergence of opportunities”, and different groups having different motives whilst sharing a similar goal.

What you are about to read will stun you. You might have heard about parts of it on some conspiracy site on the web somewhere, or read about it in some rabid, faded tome from the 1970s written by some guy claiming the end of the world was coming. Let’s face it, we’ve all heard conspiracy theories about the United Nations.

So here’s the thing. As an investigative journalist, it’s my job to chase down rumours and gossip and look instead for hard facts. What follows has come directly from United Nations or other primary source documents (Muller’s archives for instance). What you are about to read is the story of how an obscure pagan religious group seized an opportunity to influence the influencers, to evangelise to the power brokers, in their own attempt to control the world.

In the Prologue to this book we examined convergence of opportunity, that times arise when different groups see an opportunity to cooperate towards a common purpose. Some in this story are motivated by something spiritual, while for others it is money and power.

What you are about to read is the story of the totalitarians motivated by their own brand of spiritual fundamentalism, and you will be able to judge for yourself just how successful they’ve been.

Let’s begin.
