Thus, the war in Ukraine is not just to protect the physical boundaries of Russia from NATO aggression, Robert Bridge writes.
For many decades, the term ‘new world order’ has been discussed obsessively in the United States, yet few have any idea where the concept originated from and where the individuals who promote this grand vision wish to lead humanity. But one thing is for sure, Russia is having none of it.
This week, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov remarked that one of the goals of Moscow’s military operation in Ukraine is to end the U.S.-dominated world order, which is categorically at odds with Russia and its ally’s desire for a multipolar global system.
“Our special military operation is meant to put an end to the brazen expansion [of NATO forces] and the … drive towards full domination by the U.S. and its Western subjects on the world stage,” Lavrov told Rossiya 24 news channel.
“This domination is built on gross violations of international law and under some rules, which they are now hyping so much and which they make up on a case-by-case basis,” Russia’s top diplomat added.
Aside from the question as to whether U.S.-led NATO will heed Moscow’s warnings and stop the military advance on Russia’s border is another equally critical one: ‘What exactly is the New World Order, and why does the term invite so much fear and loathing?’
Invitation to Global Control
In a letter dated August 15, 1871, Confederate General and prominent author Albert Pike wrote a letter to the Italian politician and revolutionary agitator Giuseppe Mazzinni in which he suggested the creation of a ‘one world order’ where all nations would fall under the dictate of a single authority. Since then, various U.S. presidents have paid lip service to this yet-to-be-realized globe-straddling super-structure, with, ostensibly, the United States at the helm.
“The world order which we seek,” Franklin D. Roosevelt said in his 1941 State of the Union Address, “is the cooperation of free countries, working together in a friendly, civilized society.”
Later, U.S. president Harry S. Truman, who was responsible for dropping not one but two atomic bombs on nearly vanquished Japan in the waning hours of World War II, also expressed his fascination with “world order.”
“Today, the great quest of mankind is for a world order capable of maintaining world peace,” Truman told an audience of the Ancient Arabic Order of Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, of which Truman was a proud member. “The kind of world organization for which this Nation and other democratic nations are striving is a world organization based on the voluntary agreement of independent states,” he added.
In these quasi-democratic times, one can only imagine what sort of coercion would be required in getting nations to submit their “voluntary agreement” to such a unipolar power.
Up to this point, most U.S. leaders shied away from blurting out the loaded phrase ‘New World Order,’ which seems rather strange considering that ‘Novus Ordo Seclorum’ (‘New Order of the Ages’) has been inscribed on the reverse side of the Great Seal of the United States since 1782 when Charles Thomson, one of the Founding Fathers, presented his design to the Continental Congress.
This seal has attracted no shortage of feverish speculation from the ‘conspiracy theorists,’ who view the seal – complete with an Egyptian pyramid topped off with an all-seeing eye – as proof that the United States is governed by a secret cabal hell-bent on global domination. Indeed, the term ‘Novus Ordo Seclorum’ was said to have been borrowed from the Latin poet Virgil, who wrote in his fourth Eclogue: “The great order of the ages is born afresh…now justice and the return of Saturn’s reign.” All things considered, it does seem strange that a Christian nation would decorate its most visible piece of currency with Egyptian motifs and references to ancient pagan worship.
It is not necessary, however, to venture too far down rabbit holes to be wary of any politician or government that promotes the idea of a ‘one world’ ruling system. After all, this was the moral behind the Tower of Babel, where God, angered by human efforts to build a city and tower tall enough to reach heaven, caused the workers to speak in mixed tongues while banishing them to the four corners of the earth. Biblical allegories, however, has rarely caused ambitious men to reconsider their misguided plans.
Thus, on September 11, 1990, George H.W. Bush, enthused by America’s war in the Persian Gulf, unleashed the dreaded phrase not once, but twice.
“Out of these troubled times,” he told a joint session of Congress in reference to a paradise just over the horizon, “a new world order can emerge…An era in which the nations of the world, east and west, north and south, can prosper and live in harmony.”
Sounds very enticing, doesn’t it? All it takes to enjoy world peace, it seems, is for nations to submit their liberty and sovereignty to a single ruler.
And further down in his speech, “Once again, Americans … serve together with Arabs, Europeans, Asians and Africans in defense of principle and the dream of a new world order.” I’m guessing that the lions also lay down with the lambs in this political paradise.
The critical part of Bush’s passage is his remark, “Out of these troubled times.” The key to creating the ‘new world order’ that these people so desperately crave is quite simply chaos. The warped dream of uniting all nations together under a single roof can only come about as the result of some cataclysmic event, a tragedy so great that countries will eagerly submit to hegemon. This is basic Hegelian dialectics, of course, where some dire crisis arises, the people react, and the all-powerful state enters the scene to provide a solution, which has a funny way of resulting in some fundamental loss of liberty.
More recently, U.S. President Joe Biden made mention of the notorious catchphrase, which, incidentally, could have been what prompted Lavrov to reiterate his condemnation of the ‘new world order’.
“Now is a time when things are shifting,” Biden said last month at a meeting of the Business Roundtable lobbying organization. “We’re going to — there’s going to be a new world order out there, and we’ve got to lead it.” So much for this being a group effort; Biden revealed what is taken for granted among the Washington elite: there will be a new world order and the United States will “lead it.”
It needs reiterated that crisis is what these power-crazed individuals need in order to see through their plans. This was obvious at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic when Klaus Schwab, Chairman of the World Economic Forum and author of The Great Reset, said the “pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world.” Anytime a powerful, highly influential individual, especially one who is not held accountable by democratic due process, starts babbling about crisis as an “opportunity,” that is when alarm bells should start blaring.
Keep in mind that it was this very same WEF chief who organized, in cooperation with Johns Hopkins University and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the so-called Event 201, which predicted, almost down to the exact details, how the real pandemic would play out just a couple of months later. That’s not to suggest that Schwab knew what was coming down the pipe, but rather that he and his peers were preparing for such a moment to bring about the ‘Great Reset.’
Then there was the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), a now defunct neoconservative think tank founded in 1997 by William Kristol and Robert Kagan that played a major role in drumming support for the invasion of Iraq in 2003. In one of its most influential publications entitled, Rebuilding America’s Defenses (2000), the authors, many of them holding key policy positions in the Bush administration, complained that “the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.”
Lo and behold, almost exactly one year later, on Sept. 11, 2001, the PNAC got its “catastrophic and catalyzing event” with the terrorist attacks on Manhattan. That event ushered in a decades-long ‘War on Terror’ that would see the United States scrambling to play catch up with Russia and China, who were quietly building up their offensive and defensive capabilities while the U.S. military expended itself in wasteful and unnecessary conflicts abroad.
What kind of other crisis should humanity be prepared for that might usher in this ‘new world order’? Anything from economic collapse, to alien invasion, to a viral pandemic would be enough to do the trick. But the more important question is what kind of ‘new world order’ would the United States impose on the planet if given half a chance?
A cursory glance at the social, cultural and political trajectory in the U.S., where weird progressive experimentation (the teaching of transgender ideology, critical race theory and alternative sexual lifestyles at the elementary school level by cancel culture extremists, for example) should give tremendous pause. Logic and decent behavior has been turned on its head, and this makes conservative countries like Russia understand that this is not the sort of ‘new world order’ – even if they were theoretically willing to go along with such a grandiose project – they want any part of.
Thus, the war in Ukraine is not just to protect the physical boundaries of Russia from NATO aggression. The war in Ukraine is to save Russia from the spiritual demise that would be the ultimate result of any ‘new world order’ dictated upon them by the morally bankrupt West. In that respect, Russia is fighting an existential battle for its very soul.
