[David] Rockefeller had been quoted as saying at the United Nations on September 23, 1994:“This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long. We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.” (Berit Kjos, “The U.N. Plan for Global Migration,” News with Views, 2006)
“The document that Mr. Brown first made public on Wednesday morning …proposes a set of organizations — a ‘new international financial architecture for the global age’— that will monitor risks in the financial system and provide an early-warning system; determine global standards of regulation; supervise international corporations in their cross-border activities, protect markets from excessive activities of speculators; stamp out major conflicts of interest and set standards for pay and bonuses; internationalize accounting standards, and provide transparency in complex financial transactions.”
Whenever a new centralization of power occurs, it is always justified on the basis of benefits that could result. Once the centralization happens, however, the benefits are forgotten and the new power center serves its own interests.
