ALTERNATIVE THINKERS UNITE!
We Have a Common Enemy: The New World Order
The Synthesis of Individualism & Wholism
By Jack Allis
Alternative thinkers today live in separate worlds. They squabble over countless issues, deflecting them from what’s really important, and often ignore each other completely. Worse yet, they shoot themselves in foot by their unwillingness to put aside their differences, and work together to defeat a common enemy that is perched to reduce them both to dust, and has the power to do so. This enemy is the emerging fascist world government, or New World Order, that is taking shape around us at a frightening pace, and transforming the people of the world into a herd of mindless sheep.
By alternative thinker, I am referring to those people, who believe that the mainstream corporate and political system in the modern world is decadent, and unless drastic changes are made, will soon collapse. They have philosophies, strategies, and life-styles that are alternatives to the norms of this system, and they are driven by their desire to change this system, and to create a different and better world. And there’s not much time.
I am going to call these two factions of the alternative thinking world individualism and wholism (the “w is added to denote whole). I am uniquely qualified here because I live comfortably in both these worlds, though I differ with each on various issues. And I am one of the rare few. I have studied them both for decades, and my work, as a personal growth teacher and writer, incorporates them.
The individualists are on the right side of the political spectrum. They consist of Libertarians, Christian Patriots, and those who believe in a limited government, which strictly adheres to the Constitution, and free market economics. The individualists also tend to see the entire system as corrupt, and in need of an overhaul, not just certain elements of it, such as the Republicans or Democrats. As far as The New World Order is concerned, the individualists tend to get it.
The wholists, on the left side of the spectrum, are a bit more apolitical and amorphous, and therefore more difficult to label. In general, they believe in environmentalism, wholistic health, and spirituality, of the non-denominational or universal type. Wholists loved the movies “Fahrenheit 9/11” and “What the #$*! Do We Know!?” (dealing with Quantum Physics and higher consciousness). They tend to see a conspiracy, but they believe it’s a right wing, Republican conspiracy. They thought John Kerry was a good guy, or at least clearly enough the lesser of two evils that he would really make a difference.
If alternative thinkers intend to bring about meaningful change, these two worlds must unite. If we could succeed in this one thing, we do have the capability to generate enough critical mass to wake up enough people to make a dent in the existing system. In order to initiate this push, two fundamental things are necessary. The first is to act like grown-ups, not children, and learn to tolerate our differences, so we can coexist and work together.
Tolerance also means respecting the right of everybody to believe in whatever form of religion or spirituality or atheism they choose. It’s OK to discuss our metaphysical differences, but we must remember that ultimately this is a personal matter, and should be left on the side. We must agree that the world we want to create is one of religious and spiritual diversity.
The second is to recognize the one titanic thing we do have in common: the enemy. Defeating The New World Order must be our central rallying point. If the New World Order reaches its goal, which is complete ownership and control of the planet Earth and all its people, alternative thinkers will be the first to go.
But much more importantly, individualists and wholists must come to understand that their positions are not inherently contradictory or exclusive of each other. They do tend to create this impression by the stereotypes they fling back and forth, and the names they call each other. You hear the Libertarians deride the environmentalists as a bunch of weirdo tree-huggers, who are more concerned about an endangered species of mice than they are about human progress, and the environmentalists think the Libertarians are a bunch of angry guys, without souls, who hate nature, and who wear fur coats just to tick them off. Neither is correct, and they both need to stop doing this, or they’ll get a spanking.
Actually, by clearing up some basic misunderstandings, and with a little tweaking here and there, individualists and wholists can fit quite nicely together, and become complementary pieces in a much bigger picture. In fact, if alternative thinkers are to make a difference, individualism and wholism must be synthesized. They are both essential ingredients to changing the world. The ultimate lesson is that they can’t live without each other. There’s absolutely nothing preventing a Libertarian or a Christian Patriot from being an environmentalist, and it’s totally reasonable for an environmentalist to believe in limited government and free market solutions to the environmental crisis.
So, who or what exactly is this common enemy: The New World Order? I am only going to give a sketch of this here. However, there are mountains of evidence to support what you’re about to hear. A few of my favorites are the work of G. Edward Griffin, Jon Rappoport, Alex Jones and David Icke (though David does tend to blow some fuses). If you want specific references, send me an email.
Here goes: The world is owned and controlled by a small group of people who operate entirely behind the scenes. I will call them The Global Elite. There is a wide range of disagreement about who they actually are, but we can safely say that they consist of interlocking genetic bloodlines, and they see themselves as divinely ordained to rule the planet Earth, and to decide what’s best for the human race. Earlier in history, they operated more overtly through the monarchies and royal families, and through mainstream religious institutions, such as the Vatican. More recently, they coordinate their agenda, and wield their power through a vast network of secret societies. In the modern world, some of these pose as public policy think tanks, such the Council on Foreign Relations in the U.S., the Bilderberg Group in Europe, and many others.
The Global Elite own everything, most importantly the major international banking institutions and the huge multi-national corporations, including all the major media outlets. This also gives them total control of all the governments of the major nations. And in the U.S., this includes both major political parties, including the Liberal Democrats and John Kerry. The Global Elite is able to totally control the information the world is exposed to through their control of the media and the educational systems. They use this to manipulate the minds of the people of the world by fabricating history, and creating a vast world of illusion that covers all this up.
The ultimate goal of the Global Elite is The New World Order. The New World Order will consist of one central world government, one global army, one global currency, and the all the people of the world will be micro-chipped, or linked by some kind of I.D. to a global central computer.
Sound like anything that’s dangerously close to happening? With stakes as high as these, individualists and wholists must learn to get along. And the first step is to take off our blinders, and get to know each other a little better.
The term individualism is derived from the primary and most fundamental issue of politics, and that is individualism versus collectivism. All other matters of politics are subordinate to this, and they are mutually exclusive. You can’t be a little of each. This issue, of course, has been around forever, but the philosopher Ayn Rand was the first contemporary thinker, to my knowledge, to bring it to the forefront, and more recently, writer G. Edward Griffin has elucidated upon it with great effectiveness.
In a system of politics, individualism means that the primary responsibility of government is protecting the rights of the individual, as was so clearly and eloquently spelled out in the Declaration of Independence: the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And the authority of the government is derived from free and empowered individuals. It is a system that works from the bottom up, as opposed to the top down in a collectivist system, where authority is derived from the collective or the group. The reason there was no real choice between Bush and Kerry is because they are both collectivists. A system of government that was based on individualism was the intention of the Founding Fathers when they wrote the U.S. Constitution.
The fundamental rule of law in a system of individualism is that people are free to do whatever they want, as long as they don’t harm others, or interfere with the rights of others to this same freedom. Individualism means limited government and free market economics. It works on the assumption that history has repeatedly proven that government is inherently parasitic, and is the single greatest threat to freedom. We can more effectively solve problems, and the world would work far better and more humanely if individuals were in charge, rather than governments.
Wholism is a very broad term that pertains to virtually every aspect of life. It deals with the operation of whole systems, and this includes philosophical, practical, and organic systems. The principle of wholism can be seen throughout the natural world, and the very existence of organic life depends upon it. Wholism, in any system, focuses on the functioning of the whole system, rather than its individual parts. Wholism is also dynamic in character, and deals with the interdependence and the process of interaction between the parts of a system, rather than those parts in isolation. A properly working wholistic system, then, is a dynamic process, in which the individual parts are interconnected and working in harmony.
Wholistic health is an excellent illustration of this. Wholistic health views people as whole systems, consisting of mind, body and spirit, in relationship to their total environment. Optimal health is a function of these parts of the human system being connected, and working in harmony. A primary source of the failures of contemporary medicine is the way it separates human beings into a multitude of different parts, and treats these parts in isolation.
The wholistic view of human life, and all organic life for that matter, is inherently ecological. This means that human beings cannot be isolated, and separated from their environment. Our environment, the Earth, is also a whole organic system, and we are an integral part of this system, along with its other parts, the air, the water, the soil, and the other forms of plant and animal life. All these parts are interdependent, and must work in harmony, or the whole system will collapse. Similarly, the Earth is also part of larger organic systems, the solar system and the universe. Life on Earth, for example, is totally dependent upon the electromagnetic radiation for the Sun.
Now that we know what we’re talking about, here’s a critically important question. What’s the most important issue facing both individualists and wholists today? Is it The New World Order? Or, is it any of the other hot button issues that divide us, such as environmentalism or abortion? Without minimizing the significance of the later two, this is a no brainer, is it not?
Once individualists and wholists get their priorities straight, and get to know each other a little better, they will not only see that they are not as far apart as they thought, but they will also see that there is a lot they can learn from each other. As so often happens in good marriages, each might see in the other a part that’s missing in them. Like the yin and the yang of ancient Chinese philosophy, they can learn that they are each complementary and necessary pieces of the whole system.
Why then do individualists and wholists not get along? We’ve already covered one of the main reasons: intolerance. But this is not the kind of intolerance where people are burned at the stake. It’s a form of intolerance where we shut down our minds, and cling to our belief systems in a way that closes us off to new possibilities. And when we do this, an important part of us dies. It’s as though we are afraid that letting in anything new and different that might shatter the tidy little world we have constructed around ourselves. A great example of this is the resistance people invariably have to radically new ideas, such as the world being round and not flat. What’s everybody so afraid of anyway? Change is good. Let’s revel in it.
The individualist and wholistic movements at the present time also have internal flaws that make them easier for each other to dislike.
Let’s begin with environmentalism. The environmental movement has become so huge and heterogeneous that it’s no longer accurate to lump it under this one label. Calling somebody an environmentalist is like calling somebody a Christian. It has no meaning. It’s also not fair to discredit the entire movement on the basis of the crazy behavior of certain extremists, or the inept polices of bungling government bureaucracies that have jumped on this bandwagon.
It is also an irrefutable fact that the environmental movement has been infiltrated and contaminated by the enemy. Many individuals and groups that promote environmental causes are puppets of the Global Elite, whether they are aware of it or not, and the environmental crisis is used as a tool to increase the scope and power of government and international agencies. Hence, the motives and judgment of many environmental do-gooders is seriously called into question. It’s a vicious cycle, in which the Elite can both create the problem, and then grab more power by providing the so-called solution, at the cost of our liberty. The United Nations, a New World Order front, is the most obvious example of this, with its many environmental committees and agencies.
I could go on and on, but what’s most important is that we must be very careful when we examine environmentalism, and we must not be blinded to the fact that there is a very real environmental crisis. Nor should it blur the fundamental message of wholism: that in order to be healthy and survive, humanity must learn to live in harmony with the environment.
Politically speaking, wholists also suffer from a bad case of naivety. In most cases, this is simply due to fact they have not been properly educated about the truth, which, after all, is quite ingeniously hidden. You’re not going to hear any of this on the nightly news.
But wholists make two monumental political blunders. Philosophically, they tend to be collectivists, falling back upon big government models as the best solutions to our problems. And practically, they still place a lot of trust in the mainstream political system, specifically the Liberal Democrats in the U.S. Politics is an area where the wholists could learn a great deal from the individualists, who understand that government is the problem, and that we can no longer trust the mainstream corporate and political system to solve our problems for us. We must do it ourselves.
On the other hand, the individualists also have some major internal problems. One of the biggest is the split between the Christians and non-Christians. These are the Christian Patriots on the one hand, and the materialist Libertarians, in the Objectivist mold of Ayn Rand on the other. Of course, there are exceptions to these categories, but they serve to illustrate the point. These two groups agree about much more than they disagree, but they do butt heads very intensely on a few primary philosophical and theological (Biblical) issues, and they are both real sticklers on these things. Practically speaking, there is one huge and extremely divisive issue, and that is abortion.
These disagreements are fine and healthy, as long as they don’t create the “my way, or the highway” attitude so characteristic of both. To put it bluntly, Christian Patriots and materialist Libertarians tend to be real blockheads when it comes to respecting different points of view, and the willingness to work with them. And the solution is equally simple: get past it. They must keep reminding themselves that when the New World Order arrives, they will be among the first to go.
The discoveries in Quantum Physics over the last century have also put the materialist philosophy of so many of the individualists in an entirely new light. Perhaps the Christian Patriots could learn some things here too. When Einstein and the Quantum physicists who followed him delved into the world of subatomic matter, they discovered a world that totally changed the materialist view of reality. Their discoveries proved that the material world we perceive with our five senses is only a tiny part of a much bigger unseen world. This new world was a dynamic web of vibrating energy that didn’t follow any of the classical Newtonian laws of cause and effect, and in which human consciousness played an integral part. And here, individualists can learn a thing or two from the wholists, as this is the essence of their worldview.
In conclusion, we’ve got our work cut out for us. But we should not be daunted by the apparently monumental nature of this struggle. Yes, this is a revolution we’re talking about. But it’s not a revolution where we’re going to blow up buildings, or kill anyone. It’s a revolution within the hearts and minds of each of us. The solution is ultimately a very simple one. It consists of waking up to the truth about our world, and then doing our utmost to wake others up. When enough of us arise from this slumber, we will reach a critical mass, and then there’s nothing the Global Elite will be able to do to stop us. Creating a healthy and diverse world of free and empowered individuals is another idea around which individualists and wholists alike can unite. The truth is our most powerful weapon in this struggle, and the truth shall set us free. And this too is something we can, and must agree upon.
