"The ideology of globalization, like
all "inevitable" utopian visions,
is being exposed as a fraud.
The power elite,
perplexed and confused,
clings to the disastrous principles of globalization and its outdated language
to mask the looming political and economic vacuum.
The absurd idea the
marketplace alone should determine economic and political constructs led
industrial nations to sacrifice other areas of critical importance from
working conditions, to
child labor, to
health and pollution on the
altar of free trade.

Woodrow Wilson proclaimed a right to

been dominated by the Ottoman Empire.

1975 The Trilateral Commission published a Task Force
Report labeled, "The Crisis of Democracy, of which one of the
principal authors was Samuel
Phillips Huntington, a close associate of Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzezinski.
Samuel Phillips Huntington,
analyzing this "democratic surge," showed that throughout the 1960s and into
the early 1970s there was a dramatic increase in the percentage of people who
felt military spending was too high.
From 18% in 1960 to 52% in 1969,

Samuel Phillips Huntington
concluded that many problems of governance in the US stem from an "excess of
democracy," and that, "the effective operation of a democratic political system
usually requires some measure of apathy and noninvolvement on the part
of some individuals and groups."
Huntington explained that society has
always had "marginal groups" which do not participate in politics, and while
acknowledging that the existence of "marginality on the part of some groups is
inherently undemocratic," it has also "enabled democracy to function
identified "Blacks" as one such group that had become politically active,
posing a "danger of overloading the political system with demands."
"Following the collapse of the Soviet
Union in 1991, American ideologues "politicians and academics" began
discussing the idea of the emergence of a "New World Order" with
power centralized in the US.
This laid the basis for an expansion of
elitist ideology pertaining to the notion of "globalization": that power and
power structures should be globalized.
The "New World Order" was to be
a global order of global governance.
The US was to be the central and
primary actor in constructing a new world
order and global government." - Andrew Gavin Marshall
social crisis, the emergence of a
charismatic personality, and the
exploitation of corporate
media to obtain public confidence would be the steppingstones in the
transformation of the
US into a closed society.
Such a society would be
dominated by an elite whose claim to political power would rest on allegedly
superior scientific know-how.
the restraints of traditional
liberal values, this elite
would not hesitate to achieve its political ends
by using the latest modern
techniques for influencing the public consciousness and
keeping society under close
surveillance and control.
Under such circumstances,
the scientific and technological momentum of the country would not be reversed
but would actually feed on the situation.
The traditionally democratic American
society could, because of
its fascination with technical efficiency, become
an extremely controlled
society, and its humane and
individualistic qualities would thereby be lost." -
"The Technological Revolution has
allowed elites to redirect and control society in ways never before imagined,
ultimately culminating in a global scientific dictatorship, as many have warned
of since the early decades of the 20th century.
The potential for controlling the masses has never been so
great, as science unleashes the power of genetics, biometrics,
new forms of modern eugenics;
implemented by a scientific
elite equipped with systems
of psycho-social control ." - Andrew Gavin Marshall
2005 Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzezinski writes
an essay for The American Interest labeled, "The Dilemma of the Last
Sovereign," in which he explains the geopolitical landscape that America
and the world find themselves in: "For
most states, sovereignty now verges on being a legal fiction."
Kazimierz Brzezinski publishes an article based on a speech he delivered to
the London-based Chatham House in their academic journal,

Royal Institute of International Relations, is the British counterpart
to the US-based Council on
His article, "Major foreign policy challenges for
the next US President" aptly analyzes the major geopolitical challenges for
the Obama administration in leading
the global corporate state at this critical juncture.
Kazimierz Brzezinski refers to the "global political awakening" as "a truly
transformative event on the global scene:"
"For the first time in human
history almost all of humanity is politically activated, politically conscious
and politically interactive.
There are only
a few pockets of humanity left in
the remotest corners of the world that are not politically alert and
engaged with the political turmoil.
The resulting global political
activism is generating a surge in the
quest for personal dignity, cultural respect and economic opportunity in a
world painfully scarred by memories of

author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern
propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an
international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt
version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any
group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due
to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of
philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a
rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of
faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in
which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation
with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality
in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human
spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are
spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against
individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate

social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as
