A new world order is emerging which has little to do with the professed
ideology of nations, but is based primarily upon countries' states of
Writing in War And Anti-War, renowned futurists Alvin and Heidi Toffler,
define three levels of technological development, the
First, Second, and Third Wave, corresponding to countries reaching
the heights of the Agricultural Age, the Industrial Age, and the Information Age.
The term wave is used because like a wave there occurs a gradual buildup in
technological development which reaches a crest and is followed by another wave.
While many countries
have experienced the First and Second Wave, only a few countries like the United
States and Japan are at the stage where the Third Wave has begun to be
experienced. That is not to say that many other countries have not entered the
Information Age. However, they are only experiencing the gradual buildup of
information technology, but not the crest which marks the wave approaching it's
peak. While other countries are building industries, many industries in the U.S.
are in decline. Wealth in the U.S. increasingly is being created in the
information technologies and services.
Third Wave countries are characterized
by organizations which are decentralized, have few layers, are task oriented or
matrix instead of hierarchical, are highly dependent on sophisticated
information and communications systems in which communications flow not only
from top to bottom, but also from bottom to top and sideways. Organizations in
the U.S. are going through a re-engineering process and are emerging leaner,
more efficient, and more effective. The U.S. armed forces are no exception to
The relevance of the First, Second, and Third Wave, according to
the Tofflers, is that the way nations make wealth parallels the way they make
war. The Gulf War marked the first test of the $200 billion U.S. space machine.
It was the first major instance where combat forces were deployed, sustained,
commanded, and controlled through satellite communications.
first shot fired by the U.S. knocked out Iraq's information and communication
capabilities. After knocking out Iraq's southern radar defenses, Iraq's
electrical systems were crippled with then secret bombs that disperse thousands
of carbon filaments to short circuit transmission lines. In essence, the war was
over in the first few hours. The importance of information and communications
during the Gulf War is underscored by the fact that these systems involved 12
commercial satellites, 118 mobile ground stations, which handled up to 700,000
telephone calls and 152,000 messages per day!
Third Wave capabilities open up
entirely new vistas of war making and terrorism. Increasingly the emphasis in
war will be on the acquisition and use of information, the disruption of the
enemy's information and communication capabilities, and in disinformation
necessary for public support. Terrorists will have new tools at their disposal.
Imagine the havoc which would have been created at the World Trade Center if at
the height of the Gulf War, instead of a bomb, terrorists were able to disrupt
communications with an electromagnetic pulse. The world's financial markets
would have been in disarray, and it may have altered the course of the Gulf War.
And the reasons for war have not changed despite the euphoria that followed the
fall of the Iron Curtain. Nations make war, as they have throughout history, to
acquire resources, to acquire markets, and to acquire allies who will aid in
acquiring resources or markets.
Yesterday, historically speaking, the
Americas were conquered and native populations decimated to acquire wealth for
the Europeans. The British having nothing the Chinese wanted forced an India
conquered for its spices to grow opium, and forced China to buy the opium.
Today, the U.S. and Western Europe with the aid of Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia,
Turkey, and others fight the Gulf War to maintain access to low priced
Middle-East oil. The historical reasons for war have not changed. Only the
methods for fighting war, and for numbing the public to the morality of war,
Naturally, Third Wave nations will attempt to maintain their
superiority both in making wealth and making war. While we hear talk of nuclear
nonproliferation and limits on missile capabilities and chemical and biological
warfare corresponding to Second Wave technologies, there is much less talk of
the nonproliferation of Third Wave war making technologies. Moreover, unlike
Second Wave technologies, Third Wave technologies are predominantly dual use.
That is they can be used both for war and peaceful purposes. Third Wave
countries, while increasing their lead in Third Wave technologies, will
increasingly favor the dismantling or dumping of Second Wave war making
technologies. They will attempt to dump Second Wave technologies upon First and
Second Wave countries, thereby assuring the latter's continued weakness and
depletion of wealth, while assuring Third Wave countries' access to First and
Second Wave countries' markets and resources.
Second Wave countries may be
better off developing or buying more Third Wave weaponry instead of Second Wave
weaponry. The example of India's worldwide superiority in Unix may be worth
following. India became a world leader in Unix software by essentially skipping
the mainframe computer revolution, and moving directly to personal and
distributed computing. Can a country entering the industrial age, by selective
development, skip the Second Wave, and move toward the Third Wave thereby
becoming a world power? It may be something to contend with in the shifting
The alliances resulting from the way countries make both
wealth and war are creating a New World Order which trisects the world into
countries aligned by their having attained First, Second, and Third Wave
capabilities. This New World Order is defined more and more by a nation's
technological achievements, and less and less by its professed ideology.
[". . . and above all to see the lowering of the British flag which was
raised there in 1842, following the defeat of China. Acting in the name of
'free trade,' the British decided to punish China for outlawing the
lucrative dope traffic, instigated by British and American merchants. (China
seized the British opium and burned it, much like the patriots dumped the
imported tea into Boston harbor).
"Cheering the British, John Quincy Adams accused China of being
'anti-commercial,' unneighborly, and violating the Christian precept 'to
love your neighbor as yourself' -- meaning free trade among equals. The
Treaty of Nanking set the pattern for a series of unequal treaties which
effectively reduced China to a semi-colony until 1949. While Western powers
exploited China's resources, the average life span of Chinese hovered around
30."--L. Ling-Chi Wang, "The Closing Chapter of the Opium War," Jinn, June
[Architects of Deception, a 600-page history of Freemasonry by Estonian writer Jyri
Lina offers profound insight into the true character of modern history.
Essentially, a dominant segment of society has joined the Jewish financial elite by
embracing Freemasonry, a satanic philosophy that represents a death wish for Western
civilization. They imagine they will profit from the carnage and suffering caused by
their "New World Order."
Incredible, bizarre and depressing as it sounds, Lina writes that 300 mainly Jewish
banking families have used Freemasonry as an instrument to subvert, control and
degrade the Western world.--Henry Makow, "Freemasonry: Mankind's Death

[Mercantilist governments resented the perpetual drain of silver from West to East
in payment for Oriental goods (tea, silk, porcelain) that were in high demand in the
Occident, while facing low demand in the Orient for Occidental goods. From the
mid-17th century, more than 9 billion Troy ounces, or 290 thousand tonnes, of silver
was absorbed by China from European countries in exchange for Chinese goods.
The British introduced
opium along with tobacco as an export item to China in order to reduce the trade
deficit. Under the disguise of free trade, the British, the Spanish and the French,
with the tacit approval of the Americans, continued sending their contraband to
China through legitimate as well as illegitimate trade channels even after the
Chinese dynasty put an embargo on opium imports.--Antal E Fekete, "Silver and
opium," atimes.com, February 17, 2011]
