Robert P. Hillmann is a graduate of Loyola University of Chicago, with a bachelor’s degree in history. He did extensive research concerning the “New world Order”, and what is happening to the world economy. For anyone wanting to know, and to prepare his book is a must read. This article is a review of Hillmann’s book titled”Reinventing Government: Fast Bullets And Cultural Changes.
Following are a few very interesting, well documented, and informative excerpts from his book. They are not necessarily in the order as presented in the book. However the wording is the same.
The book is based upon the personal papers of University professor of international law, Quincy Write. The Quincy Write Papers are held the Department of Special Collections at the University of Chicago Regenstein Library. There in excess of 140 boxes of these records containing thousands of original documents—many on U.S. Governmental letterhead—concerning the creation of what Wright referred to as the “new world order”.
The letters and documents in Wright’s papers paint a picture of 20th Century historical events and people that many scholars have been reluctant to address. My goal in writing this paper was to outline the period and bring to light some of the events and people that for one reason or another have been overlooked. (writes Robert Hillmann)
Defining The Term
In early March 1993 President Clinton created what is now called the National Partnership for Reinventing Government (NPR) and named Vice President Al Gore to serve his point man in a drive to reinvent government in the United States (1)
There are three main differences between the system that Follett described and Socialism as Marx, Lenin, Stalin and other 19th and 20th century Communist leaders viewed it. The first was the creation of the “socialized will”. This could only be achieved over a long period of time using incremental adjustments. Communist leaders on the other hand believed that it could be accomplished quickly from the top down, first by violent revolution and then the elimination of anyone left that disagreed with them.
The second difference between the two was that while most Socialists and Communist leaders believed in a classless society, Follett advocated an aristocracy to rule over what she referred to as the “mob.”
The third difference between Follett and Socialist leaders like Lenin and Stalin is not as apparent as the other two. It involves the route that the Russian Revolution took after its initial success. Vladimir I. Lenin began forming a Socialist nation-state from which revolution could be exported to capitalist countries around the globe. Joseph Stalin continued to expand on this program causing a rift between those that believed in world government as the primary goal of their efforts and those who saw Socialism as their primary goal. (70)
Historical Origins And Those In Charge
It is a Forbes magazine article that provides the most valuable insight into its origins. In it Mary Parker Follett, an early 20th century educator and business management consultant from Boston, is identified as being the “mother” of reinventing government theory (29)
As World War I was coming to a close, Communists and radicals of every stripe were laying the groundwork for a Socialist world government that they hoped would emerge from the ruins of the old world order. As it turns out, large banking interests and others of great wealth, in Britain and the United States, were thinking along similar lines—of course their brand of Socialism would have two classes not one. In 1918, with the help of Albert Bushnell Hart, Follett wrote a book called The New State: Group Organization the Solution of Popular Government. Folett outlined the social political and educational requirements necessary to build a world government and it was the banking interests to which her book was addressed. (31)
By the late 1890’s American educators such as John Dewey, J.E. Russell—both of Columbia University—and Woodrow Wilson of Princeton University joined with wealthy businessmen such as Andrew Carnegie, J. P. Morgan and John D. Rockefeller (both engineers of the Federal Reserve) in pushing this globally oriented agenda.
The Council On Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Royal Institute of International Affairs were only the first of many such organizations to come—all of which had as their most basic goal the education of people in the necessity of world governance. (CFR & Jeb Bush)
Roosevelt, an ardent supporter of the League of Nations, was a committed internationalist. His political appointments reflected this internationalism and a close relationship between government officials and groups like the Council on Foreign Relations.(135)
He (Eichelberger) said that Roosevelt felt that the only way for the world government to be successful would be for it to be dictatorial in nature. By this he meant that the U.N. using the strength of its four main members , the United States, Great Britain, the Soviet Union and China, was going to have to force its will upon the remaining nations of the world. (213)
One of the main obstacles to U.S. participation in the League Of Nation (precursor to the U.N.) was the U.S. Senate’s (Thus the 16th Amendment) objection to American involvement in a world political organization that would clearly limits its rights as a sovereign nation. Having learned from their previous mistake, it was decided that this time economic integration (The Federal Reserve) & (one world Currency) would precede political integration.(196)
The new world economic order was to be based upon three financial institutions––The International Monetary Fund, The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the International Trade Organization.(197) See the inter connection between these organizations and the Federal Reserve at this link.
The WTO, which negotiates and implements trade agreements operates out of Geneva, Switzerland. The WTO consists of a ministerial conference, a general council and a director-general–none of whom is elected by or are in any way answerable to the people. This is a classic example of “democracy” as defined by Mary Parker Follett. (page 68)
Once again, following the Shotwell model, economic union would proceed political union. This began with the Canadian-U.S. Free Trade Agreement in 1988 which was quickly, expanded by George Bush, into the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).…In October of 1997, Bill Clinton made clear the goal of these free trade agreements when he declared that a great tide of change was sweeping the globe and that”...isolationist voices must be ignored as efforts proceed to fully integrate the political and economic future of the Americas.“(314)
In the article Dziedizic noted that NAFTA”…is nevertheless replete with implications for regional security cooperation. (317). He then went on to describe a regional military force whose main opponent would be civilian rather than military. Its primary mission, according to Dziedzic, would involve illegal immigration, contraband weapons and illegal drugs.(318)
The Transformation Of Education
Before such a plan could be implemented, however, common people would need to be specially educated to accept both an international government and their new station in life. One of the ways advocated to accomplish this task was to edit history books to reflect more global perspective. This idea was first put forward at the first Universal Peace Conference in 1889 (36)
(Note: on page 57, Robert Hillmann also documents the involvement of UNESCO in the indoctrination of children and adults to accept the new world order. I am not posting his words here, but will, instead post their link which says volumes as do the other links I have provided)
Melching and company say that one of the major obstacles in the way of public-sector re-engineering is “America’s constitutionally embedded reluctance to authorize governmental innovations (the checks and balances which constrain government).”(9)
Osborne ad Gaeble make a similar comment in “Reinventing Government” when they state. “Just a Columbus never knew he had come upon a new continent, many of today’s pioneers—from governors to city managers, teachers to social workers—do not understand the global significance of what they are doing:(15) The last step in the process is to quickly implement your plan. This approach is described as “slow trigger, fast bullet”(16)
Under the old system children were taught, in their history classes, about how people came to America in search of religious freedom and how they fought a revolutionary war to escape tyranny. They were also taught about the Constitution and its Bill of Rights. This was to come to and end. In order for a two-class society to properly function the lower class would have to forgo more than just a liberal education—they would also have to give up their individual rights. In order to achieve this, the history of the Republic could no longer be taught the way it he had been in the past. Walter Karp, contributing editor of the Harper’s magazine, commenting on industrial education stated that, “With economic “interdependence” as its subject and a “socialized” worker as its goal the new “democratic” curriculum had little place for history. For political history, which recounts the diverse deeds of men, there was to be no place at all. ” (39)
She (Follett) felt that government based on individual rights had no place in modern political theory and disliked the system of checks and balances because it prevented power from being concentrated in the hands a small group of people. (51)
The training for the new democracy mus be from the cradle through nursery, school and play, and on and on through every activity of our life. (69)
People however, were not going to be told that the solution to the problems of world peace was the creation of a world government until they had been properly prepared. (173)
“My point (says Wright) was that excessive loyalties to certain sacred cows such as sovereignty, nationality, neutrality, and domestic jurisdiction is ruining civilization.”(194)
The early 1920’s were a growth period for the textbook revision program. “The ICIC planned a positive program for the future. It made recommendations to local school boards to governments for official campaigns to revise textbooks, and requests for support were sent to major international governmental agencies”(103). ….”It is strictly forbidden to make or except applications for emendations referring to personal views of a moral, political, or religious order.“(105)
Tony Blair, while speaking in Chicago on 22 April 1999 mentioned that national constitutions were also to be targets of the reinventing process. (345). Nowhere is that more true than here in the United States. The U.S. Constitution with its system of checks and balances and the concept of individual rights, enshrined in its Bill of Rights, makes it an impossible document for the supporters of global government to deal with.
Reinventing the basic law of the land is no longer the sole preserve of the federal judiciary. Today government officials (and law enforcement) routinely Oregon the limitations placed on their authority of the Constitution. (page 79)& (351)
Group Identity Instead Of Individual Identity
In seventeenth and eighteenth century theory of democracy it was the individual that was considered to be the base unit of society and therefore it was individual rights that were paramount in documents like the U.S. Constitution…..Follett went on to state that “But there is no such thing as the ‘individual’ …(54) and since there was no such thing as the individual, it would naturally follow there should be no such thing as individual rights.(55)
The concept of individual rights had many flaws according to Follett’s political philosophy, not least of which was the fact that they believed that people were too stupid to make informed decisions. …The New State she proclaimed that, “Ballot-box democracy is what this book is written to oppose.” (57)
The solution to this problem, according to Follett, was to eliminate the individual as the basic unit of society and replace him with a group organizations (57) Group rights would now take the place of individual rights. Under the old order, man was endowed with certain God given rights—under the new system the only rights that man had were those that the group would bestow upon him. (59)
It makes it possible for a very small number of people to control a very large number of groups.
In Follett’s vision of democracy there would be two classes of people…”those who govern and those that are governed.” (62)
Military Transformation And Disarmament
Political and military control of the world during the transition period was to be in the hands of the four great powers that the Commission thought world make the largest contributions to the war effort—Britain, China, Russia, and the United States. (199) It was also planned that during the transition period membership in the world organization was to be expanded to include neutral countries and the defeated Axis powers. Prior to being allowed into the new world order, however, the Axis powers would have to undergo a period of extended military occupation during which the people in these countries were to be psychologically prepared for participation in it. (200)…In the permanent order to be established, abstention or withdrawal will be impossible. (201) The reports also made it clear who was going to pay the lion’s share of this global reconstruction project–the American people (202)
The World State that this new organization was advocating was to consist of an executive body, a legislature, a judicial branch (with jurisdiction over the individual), and a World army …so recruited and so based that no individual, group, or nation could seize control of it, (249) It was also noted that, “Upon the achievement of world government. all national armaments save limited quantities for international policing should be abolished, and the manufacturer of armaments, save those required by a world army and for internal policing, should be banned.” (250)
National armed services are being re-engineered in order to be able to properly interact with global and regional military forces while at the same time working with state and local governments. Like the regional and world forces, they too are preparing for major operations against civilian populations. This new type of mission is referred to as Operations Other Than War (OOTW) (336)… By December 1994, however, this had changed (not operating in the U.S.) . The West 95 “Operations Other Than War” conference openly discussed how these forces could be used in the U.S.(337)…by 1998 mufti-national forces were training for warfare in major urban centers, such as Chicago. under the code name “Urban Worrier”. (340)
Using military force within the United States is a sensitive subject because under the Posse Comitatus Statute it is illegal. The Defense Department is moving ahead anyway. (page 77) http://www.cfr.org/world/globalization-politics-american-foreign-policy-new-century/p6330
Re-engineering Local Governments
Some of the most radical government re-engineering is occurring at the local level. Over the past ten years, numerous summits and conferences, sponsored by various United Nations agencies, have been held to outline plans for local government in the twenty-first century/ These plans cover such things as housing, healthcare, population control, land use, transportation, and almost any other aspect of life that can be imagined (357)
The main goal of these local re engineering projects is to institute what is called “Sustainable Development“. The origins of this idea can be traced to the Earth Summit held in Rio D Janeiro in 1992. Agenda 21, the United Nations Center for Human Settlements (Habitat), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Sustainable Cities Programme further developed this concept (362)
large corporate interests are the driving force behind it (Sustainable Development). Both require the creation of a new regional governing body that will control all development involving residential building plans, commercial development and transportation planning which includes limiting the use of the personal automobile and expanding mass transit. The also have two other things in common: the first is that the new regional governing bodies will have control over taxation and how the money is spent, and the second is that they will not be accountable to the taxpayers.(364)
How much taxation will it reuire to force the bulk of the drivers off the road and on to mass transit? The london Planning Advisory Committee (LPAC, a local Agenda 21 troup in the U.K. has come up with an estimate. According to the LPAC, it will require the equivalent of about $12,000 (U.S.) per car in additional taxation each year to significantly reduce traffic (386)
“Once crises open the door, radical and rapid change can proceed.”(18)
2. A national identity card would be necessary and it must be an integrated access card or as it is more commonly referred to as a “smart card”.
Closing (Page 89)
Others have been reluctant to address both the persons and events revealed here. However, illuminating these obscured facts can elevate understanding of the ideas essential to individual freedom and free enterprise. Those ideas of liberty are the opposite of the ideas of serfdom revealed in this monograph and fostered by the advocates of Socialist world government.
Ideas essential too individual freedom and flourishing lives include:
- The individual is the fountainhead of rights
- The individual is the basic unit of government
- Individual judgment and individual ownership of property are the basis of liberty’
- The American Revolution was a uniquely moral revolution
- Voters need representatives who are elected and accountable to them
- Attributes of individual sovereignty may not be limited
- Political freedom must rest upon economic freedom
- Individuals, not groups, participate in republics, not democracies
- Americans are not obligated to finance any global reconstruction porject
- Withdrawal from insufferable social contracts is a basic human right.
Understanding the look and feel of fast bullets and culture changes can equip us to dodge the first and resist the second as the central planners spin out their reinvention of government. Having read first their books and now their papers, we can see clearly that we are simply dealing with some new-time thugs who desire old-fashioned rule over all. If this is a battle that every generation must wage and win, so be it. Floy Lilley, J.D., The University of Texas at Austin

World Bank Insider Blows Whistle on Corruption, Federal Reserve
Former Assistant Secretary of Housing under George H.W. Bush Catherine Austin Fitts blows the whistle on how the financial terrorists have deliberately imploded the US economy and transferred gargantuan amounts of wealth offshore as a means of sacrificing the American middle class.
** This video is sped up by 20% to make watching more efficient, and it is uploaded uncut from the original interview. **
Fitts documents how trillions of dollars went missing from government coffers in the 90’s and how she was personally targeted for exposing the fraud.
Fitts explains how every dollar of debt issued to service every war, building project, and government program since the American Revolution up to around 2 years ago — around $12 trillion — has been doubled again in just the last 18 months alone with the bank bailouts. “We’re literally witnessing the leveraged buyout of a country and that’s why I call it a financial coup d’état, and that’s what the bailout is for,” states Fitts. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nU7wGe2A6k&feature=share
