When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle! (1)
- Edmund Burke (April 23, 1770)
It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds. (2)
- Samuel Adams
If we wish to be free... we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! (3)
- Patrick Henry (March 23, 1775)
In the preceding chapters, we have painted, we admit, a very alarming picture of reality. It was entirely our intent to do so. We believe, like Founding Father James Madison, that it is proper and prudent to sound the alarm, wake the town, and tell the people when danger is threatening. In fact, it would be immoral not to warn others about an imminent peril. Madison wisely advised, as we have noted previously:
It is proper to take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties. We hold this prudent jealousy to be the first duty of citizens and one of the noblest characteristics of the late Revolution. The freemen of America did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise and entangled the question in precedents. They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle. We revere this lesson too much, soon to forget it. (4)
Tragically, most Americans have forgotten this important les son. We are long past "the first experiment on our liberties." We are rushing headlong to destruction, tyranny, and slavery.
Some will say that our concerns are wildly exaggerated, that the UN, while often obnoxious and corrupt, is toothless and can present no real danger to the mighty United States. And besides, they will aver, it still represents mankind's noblest aspirations for peace. We can reform it and use it to good purpose. We can trust our president and Congress to watch out for our interests.
Others will react in the opposite direction, asserting that the Insiders' new world order and their plans to empower the UN have proceeded too far to be stopped now. The enemy is too rich and powerful, too well organized and deeply entrenched. Resistance is futile; we have already lost.
Both of these attitudes - blind, senseless optimism and hope less defeatism - should be equally repugnant to free peoples. We assure you there is nothing exaggerated about the dire threat posed by the UN in anything we have written. But it is not necessary for anyone to rely on our word. We have quoted extensively from UN and U.S. documents and copiously cited the statements of many of the key players in this drama. We have gone to considerable lengths to make many documents available on our Internet website and to provide links to many other primary sources. Any person of ordinary intelligence, with an open, honest mind, can read the literature and compare it with readily verifiable facts concerning the rapidly growing "empower ment" of the UN in all of the areas we have discussed.
Let us take a lesson from the patriots who founded our nation. In the summer of 1775, these courageous souls faced a situation not dissimilar from our own. Some argued that, in spite of the Crown's tyrannical acts, things were not all that bad and that the prudent course was to continue entreating England for fair ness and justice. Others warned that it would be futile and fool hardy to dare to challenge the British military might.
In his famous oration at St. John's Church, Patrick Henry addressed the faulty arguments of both the Panglossian optimists and the defeatists. He eloquently and forcefully expressed the position that full and complete information, even though unpleasant, was the necessary basis for a proper decision:
It is natural for a man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth - and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation. For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and to provide for it. (5)
Mr. Henry then spoke words that are as relevant today (if not more so) as they were in that desperate time:
They tell us, sir, that we are weak - unable to cope with so for midable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally dis armed, and when a British [or a UN] guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat, but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged, their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston!...
Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! (6)
The submission and slavery the American colonists faced was a very real and dire prospect, but was nothing compared to that which we will face under a fully empowered UN. The British government was autocratic, abusive, even tyrannical at times, but not outright totalitarian. The organized one-worlders, how ever, intend to transform the UN into the global governing instrument of their ruthless, totalitarian "New World Order."
Projecting the Lines
Let us summarize the case we have made and, from what is already known, project the lines concerning what we can expect in the future - if, that is, by "irresolution and inaction" we allow the Insiders' plans for the UN to come to fruition. Those plans include:
- Creating a United Nations Military, with army, navy, air force, and nuclear weapons.
- Dispatching U.S. military personnel on ever-increasing UN missions throughout the world.
- Gradually disarming all nation states, including the U.S., so that the UN military forces will be unchallengeable.
- Establishing the International Criminal Court and rapidly expanding its jurisdiction.
- Establishing a global UN police force and bringing all local police under its control.
- Outlawing private ownership of firearms and disarming citizens.
Imposing global draconian regulations on all human activity under the pretext of protecting the environment.
- Drastically restricting and, ultimately, destroying properly rights.
Forcing vast relocations of human populations in order to create "Wildlands" for UN-designated animal species.
- Imposing global "carbon taxes" on all fuels, a "Tobin tax" on financial transactions, and myriad other tax proposals.
- Placing a vast regulatory regime on all labor, business, and employment policies.
- Imposing population controls, including mandatory abortion a la Red China's UN-approved-and-funded "one child policy.
- Accelerating UN subversion in our schools and bringing all education under the jurisdiction of UNESCO.
- Subjecting all parents to licensing and claiming UN "protective" authority over all children.
- Striking down all laws against homosexuality and paedophilia/pederasty.
- Greatly expanding the practice of euthanasia and assisted sui cide.
- Promoting paganism, "New Age" spirituality, the occult, and Satanism under the guise of promoting peace, brotherhood, and a "Global Ethic."
The list above is far from exhaustive. Anyone willing to study the facts will be able to readily verify that the Pratt House mafia promoting the UN is pushing for all of these insidious programs and more. All of these incredible grabs for power are, in fact, already in various stages of implementation.
So what will be the consequences of inaction? What will an all-powerful UN government mean to life as Americans know it? Isn't it possible that our would-be slave masters will be more benevolent than old-style Communist dictators? Surely American leaders would not want to preside over bloodletting, torture, and genocide.
That is a dangerous assumption. First of all, while many of the Insiders of this one-world cabal are American citizens, they are not Americans; they are internationalists, with loyalties to no country. Many of them hold, or have held, public office and have sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution - while doing everything in their power to subvert and destroy it. Secondly, while no one can predict with absolute certainty what others would do given the power and opportunity, nonetheless there are compelling principles we dare not ignore. Let's look first at the lessons of history regarding the consequences of power.
We have previously invoked Lord Acton's famous maxim, "Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolute ly." (7) This principle was accepted as an undisputed truism by the American Founding Fathers. They were so firmly convinced that the best of men, regardless of character and intentions, could not be trusted with unrestrained power that they designed our government to thwart the ambitions of men. Thomas Jefferson expressed it this way: "In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution." (8)
The situation is even worse when the system encourages the worst of men to gravitate to the top as happened so often in so many nations in the last century. Then we are no longer talking about "mischief" with our liberties. Our lives, the lives of our families and neighbours, and the lives of billions of others are at stake.
John Locke warned centuries ago that "he that thinks absolute power purifies men's blood, and corrects the baseness of human nature, need read but the history of this, or any other age, to be convinced of the contrary." (9) The history of the spectacularly bloody 20th century offers a definitive rebuke to those who believe that a world government would be a blessing.
In his important book, Death by Government, Professor R. J.
Rummel documents that the case for global government rests entirely upon an essentially superstitious belief in the benevolence of government as an institution. (10)
Rummel, a professor of political science at the University of Hawaii, is perhaps the world's foremost authority on the phenomenon of "democide" - the systematic murder of human beings by governments. "Democide is committed by absolute Power; its agency is government," Rummel declares, and the death toll of democide is nearly incomprehensible: "In total, during the first eighty-eight years of this 20th century, almost 170 million men, women, and children have been shot, beaten, tortured, knifed, burned, starved, frozen, crushed, or worked to death; buried alive, drowned, hung, bombed, or killed in any other of the myriad ways governments have inflicted death on unarmed, helpless citizens and foreigners. The dead could con ceivably be nearly 360 million people." (11)
Although "the common and fundamental justification for government is that it exists to protect citizens against the anarchic jungle that would otherwise threaten their lives and property," in the era of the total state "government has been truly a cold-blooded mass murderer, a global plague of man's own making." The supposed "wisdom" of academic elites who depict government as a benign institution, says Rummel, ignores a "pre-eminent fact about government" - namely, "that some of them murder millions in cold blood. This is where absolute Power reigns." (12)
One of Professor Rummel's most important insights is that "peace" under a tyrannical government is actually more lethal than war. "Putting the human cost of war and democide together, Power has killed over 203 million people in this century," Rummel points out. (13) However, "even if all to be said about absolute and arbitrary Power was that it causes war and the attendant slaughter of the young and most capable... this would be enough. But much worse [is the fact that] even without the excuse of combat, Power also massacres in cold blood those helpless people it controls - in fact, several times more of them." (14)
If this has been the record of death and desolation caused by the exercise of unrestrained power by totalitarian governments of nation states, can we expect the horrors of unrestrained world government to be less? Remember, it is the same perpetrators of these unspeakable crimes (or their totalitarian successors) who the one-world Insiders insist we must join in common cause for "peace." The "respectable" CFR elites have always been comforttable with mass-murdering thugs like Stalin, Mao, Tito, Castro, Sukarno, Nkrumah, Kenyatta, Lumumba, Ben Bella, Ceausescu, Aristide, Mandela, Arafat, et al.
As we have noted, David Rockefeller, one of the most powerful drivers of the Establishment agenda during the 20th century, has praised "the social experiment in China under Chairman Mao's leadership" as "one of the most important and successful in human history." (15) He made this incredible statement in spite of the well-known fact that Mao Tse Tung's "social experiment" had by that time (1973) cost the lives of as many as 64 million Chinese at the hands of their Communist masters!
Rockefeller and his fellow one-worlders share with "Mao the Master Butcher" the addictive lust for absolute power. Again, Patrick Henry has provided us the proper attitude toward a record of tyranny. He said, "I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging the future but by the past." "And judging by the past," he declared, "I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves...?" (16)
What has there been in the conduct of the CFR-UN cabal in the last fifty years to justify any hopes of benign intent on their part? Patrick Henry's exhortation is echoed today by the FBI's famous profiling pioneer John Douglas, who has written extensively on the criminal mind and obstacles to criminal rehabilitation. (17) From his extensive studies, Douglas maintains that the best predictor of human conduct is previous conduct. (18) While many violent criminals may perform well and give indications of rehabilitation under the restraints of prison, when they are released and confront the same opportunities and pressures that gave rise to their original offenses, they repeat their crimes. What would be the crimes of such men if they attained sufficient power that they did not have to fear being caught or brought to justice? That is the near reality we face today.
What could we expect from men with proven amoral character who would gain unrestrained power and the opportunity to do evil? Moreover, can anyone imagine that a Hitler could, let alone would, turn his back on the evil forces that propelled him to power?
Some may seek comfort in the illusion that tyranny is strictly a foreign phenomenon - that domination and exploitation of one's fellow man are not in the heart of American leaders. After all, these men are cultured, genteel, and highly educated. They are some of the most famous political, business, and academic leaders. Some of them kiss babies, smile convincingly, and talk of God, patriotism, and family values. Some of them give millions of dollars to hospitals, schools, and charitable causes. They are courted and praised by the media and responsible, respectable members of society. Surely these eminent men are not capable of the criminal activities we suggest.
This naïveté and inability to judge by objective facts instead of deceptive appearances have always been the boon of criminals and the bane of their victims. Even the worst of criminals do not always openly display their wickedness. In fact, most of the time they disguise their evil beneath unctuous charm.
Adolph Hitler is universally recognized today as having been one of our planet's premier criminals. Yet, during his rise to power (and even after he attained power) some American "liberals" and Insiders were singing his praises. (19) They pointed to the schools, hospitals, roads, and social projects he had built, and they belittled or denied his well-known criminality and totalitarian aspirations. We all have seen innumerable documentaries in which Hitler is maniacally ranting to his Nazi hordes. However, he was very capable of presenting an entirely affable, congenial image as well, and was frequently filmed hugging children, petting dogs, visiting war veterans, or chatting amiably with foreign dignitaries.
Al Capone, perhaps America's most notorious criminal, likewise, knew how to turn on the charm at strategic moments and to posture as the champion of "the little guy." According to the World Encyclopedia of Organized Crime:
Capone was a murderous thug without remorse... He was responsible for perhaps as many as one thousand or more murders, certainly hundreds. Worse, for a decade the city of Chicago embraced this bragging, boasting, strutting killer, its newspapers paying homage to him and quoting his every cretinous statement, its citizens - a goodly portion of the population - nodding tolerantly, if not approvingly, in his direction. (20)
With the fabulous wealth gained from his criminal enterprises, Capone bribed cops, judges, jurors, prosecutors, and reporters - and "gave generously to charity." Notes the Encyclopedia:
Capone spent money lavishly on himself and those about him, projecting the image of generosity, of a philanthropist to the common man. Old-timers in Chicago still pay his bloody memory offhand compliments about the so-called soup kitchens Capone established in Chicago during the Depression to feed the hungry, little realizing that the crime boss did this at the suggestion of attorneys attempting to improve his horrible reputation when he was being tried for income-tax evasion. (21)
Much of the public and many politicians were willfully blind, refusing to believe that Capone was in fact the evil crime lord his accusers made him out to be. Public officials, such as Chicago Mayor William Hale Thompson, Chicago Police Chief John Garrity, and Illinois Governor Len Small, who should have been protecting the public from the likes of Capone, were actually in league with the Capone mob. (22) So it was also with the crime bosses who followed after him.
Although now largely forgotten, during the 1970s and '80s Pablo Escobar Gaviria was one of the most feared organized crime bosses in the world. As head of the Colombia's infamous Medellin drug cartel, he was also touted as one of the world's richest men. His thugs unleashed a reign of terror that included the assassination of dozens of judges, prosecutors, presidential candidates, governors, police officials, and journalists. Many more were bribed into complicity with his criminal operation. Yet he showered millions of dollars on churches, clinics, hospitals, and schools; provided college scholarships to many students; and funded many public works and charitable institutions. (23) Was this "bad guy" just misunderstood? Did he really have a heart of gold underneath a rough exterior? That's what his defenders claimed, including some members of the press. Of course that was a lie. Escobar was just doing what all smart bad guys do: buy protection in the form of public relations. He bought the loyalty of thousands of people, and was elected to the Colombian Congress, in spite of his murderous record.
The point is that hiding behind a patina of false respectability is standard modus operandi for "smart" criminals. If relatively uneducated street thugs like Capone, Escobar - and the infamous John Gotti, the "Teflon Don," as he was glamorized in the press - can figure this out, isn't it foolish to think that that lesson has escaped the notice of our fabulously wealthy Insiders with their Ivy League pedigrees and hordes of think-tank "experts" at their beck and call. Just because these "respectable" leaders do not pull the triggers does not absolve them from culpability anymore than a "respectable" Mafia boss is innocent of the killings perpetrated by his underlings.
With more space, we could credibly demonstrate that U.S. Insiders (direct forebears to the current new world order cabal) orchestrated the rise of Communism to a world power in the USSR and in China and supplied these criminal regimes with Western technology and the means for nuclear weapons. (24)
It is also true that they willingly sent U.S. sons to die in no-win wars to build their new world order. They betrayed friendly, anti-Communist allies into Communist tyranny. They used U.S. foreign aid to further communize and socialize nations under petty despots. (25) They supported brutal terrorist groups and Communist-directed wars of "national liberation." (26) They have facilitated the Communist drug offensive against the United States and frustrated all genuine efforts to expose and oppose it. (27) They have then turned around and offered dangerous, totalitarian proposals disguised as a "War on Drugs," but which, in reality, are aimed at making war on our freedoms. They have promoted the destruction of morality and the family. They have sought the destruction of private property and the middle class. They have worked to subvert the influence of monotheistic religions. They have encouraged teaching methods that promote illiteracy, conformity known as political correctness, and worship of the Almighty State as God.
These and a host of other crimes too numerous to mention should leave no doubt that top leaders of the Pratt House presidium are out to create the kind of absolutist, all-pervasive, mind- and soul-destroying, Big Brother dictatorship depicted with such horrifying force in George Orwell's 1984.
In case your memory of that nightmarish world has dimmed since you read Orwell's classic in high school, it may help to recall commissar O'Brien's hideous colloquy with the tortured protagonist, Winston Smith. After delivering an excruciatingly painful electric shock to Smith, who is strapped to a bed, O'Brien casually explains:
Obedience is not enough. Unless he is suffering, how can you be sure that he is obeying your will and not his own? Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation. Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing. Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. [Emphasis in original.] Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain. The old civilizations claimed that they were founded on love and justice. Ours is founded upon hatred. In our world there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement. Everything else we shall destroy - everything. Already we are breaking down the habits of thought which have survived from before the Revolution. We have cut the links between child and parent, and between man and man, and between man and woman. No one dares trust a wife or a child or a friend any longer. But in the future there will be no wives and no friends. Children will be taken from their mothers at birth, as one takes eggs from a hen.... There will be no loyalty, except loyalty toward the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother. There will be no laughter, except the laugh of triumph over a defeated enemy. (28)
The brutish O'Brien then matter-of-factly continued his explanation to the helpless and supine Winston Smith. "But always do not forget this, Winston - always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever." (29)
A Call to Action
A ruthless, tyrannical, Orwellian world state is precisely what the top Insiders plan to have. Like Orwell's O'Brien, they are intoxicated with power. They crave absolute power. And if they should ever attain it, we will experience a murderous "plague of power" such as this planet has not seen before. We will know democide on a scale not previously imagined.
The moral man who fully realizes the terrible consequences of allowing such a future to come to pass by default will be highly motivated to join the battle against the forces of evil and oppression. The moral person who understands what is at stake - for himself, his loved ones, and the incredible heritage of freedom with which we have been blessed - will be imbued with a high level of commitment to stopping these would-be tyrants.
But how does one go about such a daunting task? Those committed to this UN world-government goal enjoy, as we have shown, enormous influence and prominent positions throughout our institutions, especially in the media. They are able to create the appearance of universal support for their agenda. As the late Admiral Chester Ward, a former longtime member of the Council on Foreign Relations, observed: "Once the ruling members of CFR have decided that the U.S. Government should adopt a particular policy, the very substantial research facilities of CFR are put to work to develop arguments, intellectual and emotional, to support the new policy, and to confound and discredit, intellectually and politically, any opposition." (30)
Clearly, anyone who dares to sound the alarm or question the globalist agenda invites well-orchestrated attacks and ridicule. In short, Americans face a very perilous situation: the major power centers and safeguards on which they depend to protect their interests have either been compromised or are secretly working to enslave us. With the major channels of communication in internationalist hands, alerting other Americans to this situation is a formidable challenge. Yet, as we shall see, the situation is not hopeless if a core of responsible Americans will organize and act in pursuit of a sound plan.
A Commensurate Response
What needs to be done commensurate with the seriousness of the danger? Our answer: Enlist many more citizens to follow a sound program to get the United States out of the United Nations com pletely.
With the UN as a foundation, the globalists are waging assaults on our sovereignty on an incredible number of fronts. And they have equally incredible resources at their disposal for doing so, including the support of now more than 1,000 NGOs lobbying for the UN agenda. We cannot expect to obtain the resources to defend against all of those attacks. Moreover, such a purely defensive strategy is always doomed to defeat. The only sensible strategy is to put the globalists' gains up for grabs by going after the foundation for their assaults - the United Nations itself.
"There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil," said Henry David Thoreau, "to one who is striking at the root." (31) Rather than hacking at the ever-proliferating branches of the UN program, we must concentrate our forces where it counts. We must wield a sharp axe to the root and trunk of the UN tree by forcing the U.S. to withdraw from the UN. U.S. withdrawal before the UN acquires real, independent power would condemn the UN to the ash heap of history. Without U.S. support, the United Nations would share the same fate as its predecessor League of Nations. When the U.S. Senate wisely refused to have the U.S. join the League following World War I, the League soon faded into oblivion.
The UN is not the only program or assault on the U.S. system that has been mounted by the Establishment one-worlders. But it is a cornerstone of their plans - an investment of over five decades. As a mechanism to destroy our sovereignty, it threatens to take many other battles in resisting the collectivist assault out of the hands of Congress and the American people. Depriving the Conspiracy of its creation, the UN, is essential to the preservation of liberty and accomplishing this would be an incredible set back to the Insiders' plans.
Of course, we are not claiming that convincing Congress to take such a step will be easy. It will not be. We are not minimizing the difficulty in the least. But, with an effort commensurate to the danger, Congress can be persuaded. It will take enormous effort, planning, and organization by thousands of concerned citizens in order to overcome the momentum and influence that the many powerful proponents of the new world order have built through labor, subversion, and deceit. But just as America after Pearl Harbor had to work to catch up, we shouldn't expect to overcome a tough opponent who has the initiative with easy, half-way measures.
One very significant advantage we have on our side in this monumental effort is truth and the natural, God-given, human desire to be free. Another is the considerable freedoms and protections that still exist under what remains of our badly tattered constitutional system. There are many layers of strength not yet rotted and corrupted. One very important indication of that reality is the fact that the Insiders still must resort constantly to massive lies and deception to sell their fraudulent, totalitarian programs. If the fight were already over, as the defeatists claim, our enemies would not be going to such lengths to deceive; they would be flying their colors openly.
But they cannot promote their agenda openly. As dumbed down, numbed-down, bummed-down, and scummed-down as a growing segment of the American public is, there is still sufficient residual morality and intelligence to force the conspirators for world tyranny to cloak their schemes in noble-sounding rhetoric and extravagant charades. This means they must invest hundreds of times (even thousands of times) more in labor and resources to sell their lies than what it takes to offset their lies by promoting the truth.
The architects of the new world order have not yet been able to entirely erode the Republican form of government that our Founding Fathers established and that has been passed on to us through the sacrifices of so many dedicated Americans who have gone before us. Concerned Americans just need to inform themselves and use the rights, freedoms, and blessings we enjoy in order to reverse our course.
Most Americans are not aware of what already has been accomplished in this struggle. In 1997, 54 representatives voted for the first measure ever to come before the full House calling for the termination of our membership in the United Nations. (32) Two years later, 74 representatives voted to kill all funding for the UN, which, if successful (218, a majority, would be required), would effectively stop our participation in this traitorous sham. (33) And blocking all funding is an easier legislative step than outright withdrawal, for the House alone can refuse to fund UN operations (whereas withdrawal would require Senate action, and the President would likely claim the constitutional power to veto such action).
Even though there is growing legislative support for withdrawal from the UN, at the moment there is not nearly enough support to accomplish the task. The involvement of concerned citizens who inform themselves and then inform others is the only route to generating sufficient political pressure that will force Congress to vote to defund U.S. support for the UN. This informed pressure will be required to offset the enormous Establishment pressure that would be brought to bear to prevent Congress from taking such a step. Unfortunately, with so much at stake, it is not sufficient to sell politicians on the merits of our case. Instead, success will take clout. Realistically, most representatives will bow to pro-UN pressure until there is sufficient, well-informed outrage to force them to quit making excuses and act! The vast majority will not budge until they see that they must if they want to remain in office.
What we are talking about is a plan to rebuild a higher standard in Congress. The defense of freedom requires that principle must govern our affairs, else pragmatism, dictated by the Conspiracy for a global collectivist order, will destroy us. While we would like to see more statesmen gain office, this is only a small part of the solution. In today's climate even statesmen, who act on principle rather than political pragmatism, will require the support of an informed electorate if they hope to remain in office. And that same informed electorate is also the key to holding all politicians accountable for actions in defense of freedom. So the real challenge is building and leading that informed electorate.
Sound Organization Required
Building sufficient understanding in time will require organization under extremely tough, responsible, and knowledgeable leadership. Taking on the UN means taking on the power and influence of the Establishment, and in particular the Council on Foreign Relations (the UN's creator and sponsor) as well as all of the politicians and media moguls the CFR has in its pocket. This battle can't be carried through to success without leadership that understands the wiles of politicians and the pressures that the CFR can bring to bear.
For example, as public understanding grows that the UN is not our friend, inevitably new proposals to "reform" the UN will be offered which politicians will be tempted to support. This is not only a bad idea, but also a dangerous trap. No reforms will change the nature of the beast. The UN was designed from the beginning to promote global tyranny. But politicians love to champion "compromise" because they see a chance to pacify uninformed constituents while not risking the wrath of the globalists. Which also means that freedom loses. These politicians love to posture with calls for "reform" in order to deflect mounting pressure that would force them to take real action with real political consequences. Unfortunately, many conservative groups that oppose most of the UN's agenda have already been co-opted to adopt the "reform the UN" agenda. That is a prescription for defeat.
To force serious political action (and keep politicians from wig gling, stalling, and doing nothing in the face of enormous pressure and deception from the Establishment) requires a well-informed, well-organized action group under sound leadership. And that's why we recommend The John Birch Society (JBS) as uniquely qualified to serve that role.
The JBS has a track record of over four decades of principled leadership, of taking tough stands including working to expose the influence of the Conspiracy we have been discussing in this book. For more than 40 years it has been courageously fighting the good fight, blocking or slowing down many dangerous pro grams of that Conspiracy, and, most importantly, surviving the heat directed at anyone who takes the point in this fight.
And the Society has the plan and organization to get the job done. In countless battles great and small, in cities and rural areas, the challenge comes down to reaching enough Americans with the problem and a workable solution in time. This book is part of that plan. But success requires the wise and committed help of many more like yourself. We encourage readers to contact the Society for more information or the individual from whom the reader got this book. *

We also urge readers to get informed and to contact their congressman insisting that he support measures to Get US out! The name of the game is to be effective. Be firm, but don't insult or be strident. And most importantly, gain muscle by getting others to help. Membership in the Society helps enormously with that challenge.
The variety and extent of UN agencies and programs can be bewildering. When one first comes to understand the incredible organization the enemy has built to confuse, confound, and deceive Americans into giving up their inheritance of freedom, it is easy to become discouraged. But that reaction, if allowed to stand, only serves the enemy. One of the key strategies of this cabal is to create the "illusion" of overwhelming support - so that Americans see no leadership for sanity. The Establishment one-worlders want to demoralize good Americans so that they give up any idea of resistance. And so these conspirators fear and try to capture, corrupt, discredit, or isolate - any leaders that would give Americans hope that there is resistance, that there is sound leadership to follow.
For more than four decades, members of The John Birch Society have been educating their fellow citizens concerning the dangers of the United Nations. Their work has been largely responsible for the disfavor that befell the UN for many years. It took major deception and planning by the new world order advocates, including new "threats" and the "collapse" of Communism, to dust off the UN and put their plans on a fast track. We now face the looming threat of world tyranny - a danger greater than our nation has faced at any previous time in its history. The danger is great because it is neither seen nor understood by most of our citizens. And so The John Birch Society has created a new drive to meet this challenge. We are all fueled by the urgency to capture the attention of our fellow citizens and finally put an end to the creature on the East River. We respectfully ask for your help. (34) We are asking for your help in an epic educational battle.
Thankfully, the primary challenge is not a military one. In fact, for today's problems a call to arms would only serve the cause of our enemy most powerfully and help him consolidate and acquire the unrestrained power he seeks.
Our enemy's success all stems from the ignorance, delusion, and lack of understanding of the American people. If good Americans gain a proper understanding of what is happening, our problems can be resolved within the institutions that George Washington and others fought to give us.
If the people don't gain the understanding to choose better leaders and hold their politicians accountable to the Constitution, they cannot expect to improve their government through revolution. In fact, just the opposite would happen. What is needed instead is to use the resources and the freedoms we have to inform our fellow citizens and put the government our Founding Fathers gave us back on track.
But for success in the educational battle ahead, we do need to find the same spirit of patriotism and determination that Patrick Henry captured so well in his previously mentioned "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death" oration:
If we wish to be free - if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending - if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained - we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight!! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!
...Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! (35)
