The second paragraph, below, is a quote from one of the many writings of Alice A. Bailey, an English-born woman who, in the early 20th century, was part of a growing esoteric belief system, based mostly on the occultist writings of Helena Blavatsky, usually known as ‘Madam Blavatsky:
“The new world order must meet the immediate need and not be an attempt to satisfy some distant, idealistic vision. The new world order must be appropriate to a world which has passed through a destructive crisis and to a humanity which is badly shattered by the experience. The new world order must lay the foundation for a future world order which will be possible only after a time of recovery, of reconstruction, and of rebuilding.
In the preparatory period for the new world order there will be a steady and regulated disarmament. It will not be optional. No nation will be permitted to produce and organize any equipment for destructive purposes or to infringe the security of any other nation.
The new world order must be appropriate to a world which has passed through a destructive crisis…
We are concerned with only one subject, the ushering in of the new world order.”
It all sounds familiar — it sounds as though it’s all going according to plan. Notice that she repeats the phrase about the ‘NWO’ being ‘‘appropriate to a world which has passed through a destructive crisis”. This idea turns up often in writings by globalists when discussing the future. ‘Ordo ab chao‘, is the phrase.
The existence of writings like this from decades ago (the quoted words were written c. 1940) reminds us that these ideas have been around for some time, not a new development, not a product of the ‘Sixties.’ But the ideas are a part of the ‘New Age’ movement which many people think of as only another faddish syncretistic religious system, when in fact it is very political, working with the U.N. and other such organizations; I’d be surprised if the organization associated with Bailey, the Lucis Trust, counts many of today’s politicians and officials as members, though they may avoid publicizing that fact.
