When I was a high school junior at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Maryland, I started a United Nation’s Club. I vaguely remember that Carl Bernstein joined my club, before he graduated to become a cub reporter at the Washington Post. As a result of my love for the U.N., I subsequently became the national student chairman of the United World Federalists, a group led by Norman Cousins, that wanted a world government based on the U.N. charter. The United World Federalists aspired to put some teeth into the structure of the United Nations, so that it could eventually replace nation state armies with U.N. forces. This we hoped would prevent an atomic holocaust.
That was almost 50 years ago, and I have since learned a few things about this planet. I now believe that in my youth I was a pawn for the American version of the English Fabian Socialist movement. The Fabians helped create the Council on Foreign Relations in 1921, the United Nations in 1945, and other New World Order groups that aim for a world government based upon communist principles, but with a softer, gradualist, non-violent approach. Their ideal is to promote the greatest good for the greatest number of people, in opposition, however, to principles of individuality and freedom.
