Only a new paradigm of
global cooperative governance can provide real solutions to our difficulties.
Now we must re-order our priorities, and place the well being of the earth before
that of individual people or states. This will require the cooperation of people
all over the world. When people change, politics change. Whether or not we create
an equitable global community is up to us.

Canada's Heir-Apparent Prime Minister Courts One-Worlder Maurice Strong for Advisor
Strong no fan of democracy, national sovereignty or any traditional religions
OTTAWA, July 7, 03 (LifeSiteNews.com)
- As if population control guru and one-worlder Maurice Strong did not have enough
to do as a top advisor to the United Nations and the World Bank, and running confabs
for the world's wealthiest and most powerful, he is now being courted as a top
advisor to Paul Martin, the man set to become Canada's next Prime Minister. The
Ottawa Citizen reports that Strong's new role will commence at the end of this
year or early next, after the Nov. 15 Liberal leadership race.
Hanne Strong, Maurice's wife, told the Citizen's parent company CanWest that she
and her husband have bought a condo in downtown Ottawa and intend to move back
to Ottawa as early as November. Mrs. Strong runs a synchretic New Age centre on
the couple's 160,000-acre Baca ranch in Colorado.
Despite being an environmental extremist and admitted overpopulation doomsayer
who has publicly endorsed legal limits on family size, Strong is nonetheless well
regarded by world leaders. Touted as one of the most well connected men on the
planet, Strong has used his extensive web of high level international connections
to advance the demise of national sovereignty, democracy and traditional religion
and other elements he believes are causing an over-populous and environmentally-irresponsible
humanity to endanger the planet.
Beginning with the concept of fostering a new "global ethic", Strong, along with
fellow de-population advocates Mikhail Gorbachev and Stephen Rockefeller, co-produced
the Earth Charter to be a New World Ten Commandments. Such nonsense would normally
not be taken seriously except for the connections that Strong has at the U.N.
and with many current and past world leaders.
For years, conservative intellectuals have derided those who voiced concerns about
Strong's Earth Charter and his plans for the demise of Christianity. However,
earlier this year the Vatican warned against the "global ethics" which are the
origin and core of the Earth Charter. In an article published in L'Osservatore
Romano on February 11, Archbishop Javier Lozano Barrag�n, president of the Pontifical
Council for Health Care Workers warned that the aim of the program was to supplant
Christian values with a "global ethic."
The Archbishop called the 'global ethic' movement an eco-religion which holds
"sustainable development" as the highest good. He said it manifests itself "as
a new spirituality that supplants all religions, because the latter have been
unable to preserve the ecosystem." In a word, this is "a new secular religion,
a religion without God, or if you prefer, a new God that is the earth itself with
the name GAIA," he said. "The different religions existing in the world have been
unable to generate this global ethic; therefore, they must be replaced by a new
spirituality, which has as its end global well-being, within sustainable development,"
explained Archbishop Barrag�n.

UN'S KOFI ANNAN SENDS ONE-WORLDER MAURICE STRONG
Playing With the World's Agenda
STRONG RECENT HISTORY
UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan stands the powerful Canadian multi-billionaire
Maurice Strong. The founder of both the World Economic Council and Planetary Citizens,
he has served as director of the World Future Society, trustee of the Rockefeller
Foundation and Aspen Institute, and a member of the Club of Rome. As head of the
Earth Council, he began to prepare an Earth Chartera global code of conduct
based on global values and radical environmental guidelines.
led the 1992 "Earth Summit" in Rio de Janeiro (United Nations Conference
on Environment and Development). It produced the controversial Biodiversity Treaty
and Agenda 21
the monstrous plan for reorganizing the world along environmental guidelines.
One of his offices is only two blocks away from the White House.
Strong was "hired" by Annan to "reform" the massive, inefficient,
and corrupt UN bureaucracy so that the US Congress would pay its dues. But his
leadership brings little comfort to those who remember Strongs occult and
environmental ties, globalist ambitions, and corrupt business practices.
true plan for UN reform is documented in Our Global Neighborhood, the report
of the UN Commission on Global Governance, which Strong helped write. Like Towards
a Rapid Reaction Capability for the United Nations, this report calls for
a volunteer UN army under UN command, with UN police stationed in every region
of the world:
many of todays crises, it is clear than an early intervention could have
prevented later negative developments
. This underlines the need for a highly
trained UN Volunteer Force that is willing, if necessary, to take combat risks
would be particularly useful in low-level but dangerous conflicts. Such an international
Volunteer Force would be under the exclusive authority of the Security Council."
if the U.S. Congress disagrees with UN decisions. Could it simply press for a
U.S. veto on the Security Council? Not if Strong implements his vision of reform.
The United States, which is billed 25% of the huge UN budget, would be dismissed
from the Security Council:
recommend that a new class of standing members be established
Of these new members, two should be drawn from industrial countries and three
from among the larger developing countries. Of the two from industrial countries,
presumably one will be from Asia and one from Europe. Of the three from developing
countries, we would expect one each to be drawn from Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
. . . The new standing members will not possess a veto, and we believe the aim
should be for the power of the veto to be phased out. 10

World Order Ten Commandments:
CWNews New World 'Ten Commandments' Venerated In 'Ark Of Hope'

New World 'Ten Commandments' Venerated In 'Ark Of Hope'
Sep 13, 02 (LSN.ca/CWNews.com) - Surprisingl y, without much media fanfare, the
Earth Charter, hailed as the "Ten Commandments" of the New Age, was unveiled at
the Earth Summit last week. However, the lack of media attention and public notice
may be purposeful. William Jasper, who co vered the unveiling ceremony for New
American Magazine, reports: "Apparently, the plan is to orchestrate a global stealth
campaign for the Charter among a sympathetic core constituency. As the campaign
picks up steam, activists will obtain signatures and public support for this new
global ethic from local, state, and national governments, schools, and organizations--
without stirring the suspicions and opposition of churches, pro-life, and pro-family
The Charter's founding proponents, Mikhail Gorbachev and Maurice
Strong, both have referred to the Charter as a new "Ten Commandments" to guide
the new age "global spirituality." The religious overtone is intentional. Moreover,
the Earth Charter backers, including Stephen Rockefeller, have fashioned an Ark
of the Covenant look-alike "Ark of Hope" to house the "sacred" Charter. The Ar
k was ceremoniously carried to United Nations headquarters in New York last year
and was put on display in Johannesburg.
With UN language, the Charter
promotes abortion (using the terms "reproductive health and responsible reproduction")
and homosexuality (banning discrimination based on "sexual orientation"). The
New American reports that the Charter will soon be makin g its way to schools,
city governments, state legislatures, teachers organization s, civic groups, professional
associations, judges, and law schools. The magazine suggests, "Once a critical
mass of support has been built among students, teachers, journalists, and public
officials, the Charter will appear to be universally accepted and unstoppable."
THE EARTH CHARTER
We stand at a critical moment
in Earth's history, a time when humanity must choose its future. As the world
becomes increasingly interdependent and fragile, the future at once holds great
peril and great promise. To move forward we must recognize that in the midst of
a magnificent diversity of cultures and life forms we are one human family and
one Earth community with a common destiny. We must join together to bring forth
a sustainable global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights,
economic justice, and a culture of peace. Towards this end, it is imperative that
we, the peoples of Earth, declare our responsibility to one another, to the greater
community of life, and to future generations. In
order to fulfill these four broad commitments, it is necessary to:
Earth Charter Commissioners

Steven C. Rockefeller, Mercedes Sosa,
Alexander Likhotal and
Humanity is part of a vast evolving universe. Earth, our home, is
alive with a unique community of life. The forces of nature make existence a demanding
and uncertain adventure, but Earth has provided the conditions essential to life's
evolution. The resilience of the community of life and the well-being of humanity
depend upon preserving a healthy biosphere with all its ecological systems, a
rich variety of plants and animals, fertile soils, pure waters, and clean air.
The global environment with its finite resources is a common concern of all peoples.
The protection of Earth's vitality, diversity, and beauty is a sacred trust.
The Global Situation
The dominant patterns of production and consumption
are causing environmental devastation, the depletion of resources, and a massive
extinction of species. Communities are being undermined. The benefits of development
are not shared equitably and the gap between rich and poor is widening. Injustice,
poverty, ignorance, and violent conflict are widespread and the cause of great
suffering. An unprecedented rise in human population has overburdened ecological
and social systems. The foundations of global security are threatened. These trends
are perilousbut not inevitable.
The Challenges Ahead
choice is ours: form a global partnership to care for Earth and one another or
risk the destruction of ourselves and the diversity of life. Fundamental changes
are needed in our values, institutions, and ways of living. We must realize that
when basic needs have been met, human development is primarily about being more,
not having more. We have the knowledge and technology to provide for all and to
reduce our impacts on the environment. The emergence of a global civil society
is creating new opportunities to build a democratic and humane world. Our environmental,
economic, political, social, and spiritual challenges are interconnected, and
together we can forge inclusive solutions.
To realize these aspirations, we must decide to live with a sense of universal
responsibility, identifying ourselves with the whole Earth community as well as
our local communities. We are at once citizens of different nations and of one
world in which the local and global are linked. Everyone shares responsibility
for the present and future well-being of the human family and the larger living
world. The spirit of human solidarity and kinship with all life is strengthened
when we live with reverence for the mystery of being, gratitude for the gift of
life, and humility regarding the human place in nature.
We urgently need a
shared vision of basic values to provide an ethical foundation for the emerging
world community. Therefore, together in hope we affirm the following interdependent
principles for a sustainable way of life as a common standard by which the conduct
of all individuals, organizations, businesses, governments, and transnational
institutions is to be guided and assessed.

THE WAY FORWARD
As never before in history, common destiny beckons us to seek a new beginning.
Such renewal is the promise of these Earth Charter principles. To fulfill this
promise, we must commit ourselves to adopt and promote the values and objectives
of the Charter.
This requires a change of mind and heart. It requires a new
sense of global interdependence and universal responsibility. We must imaginatively
develop and apply the vision of a sustainable way of life locally, nationally,
regionally, and globally. Our cultural diversity is a precious heritage and different
cultures will find their own distinctive ways to realize the vision. We must deepen
and expand the global dialogue that generated the Earth Charter, for we have much
to learn from the ongoing collaborative search for truth and wisdom.
often involves tensions between important values. This can mean difficult choices.
However, we must find ways to harmonize diversity with unity, the exercise of
freedom with the common good, short-term objectives with long-term goals. Every
individual, family, organization, and community has a vital role to play. The
arts, sciences, religions, educational institutions, media, businesses, nongovernmental
organizations, and governments are all called to offer creative leadership. The
partnership of government, civil society, and business is essential for effective
In order to build a sustainable global community, the nations
of the world must renew their commitment to the United Nations, fulfill their
obligations under existing international agreements, and support the implementation
of Earth Charter principles with an international legally binding instrument on
environment and development.
Let ours be a time remembered for the awakening
of a new reverence for life, the firm resolve to achieve sustainability, the quickening
of the struggle for justice and peace, and the joyful celebration of life.
