After all, the current one is all messed up!
Q. Hi Sally.
A Hi Sally!
Q. I’d like to ask myself if there is anything deeper in your above n.w.o joke.
A. Well, I’d welcome such questions from myself. Go ahead!
Q. What is a new world order?
A. A change in the worlds balance of power.
Q. Is that all? Why do I keep find loads of conspiracy stuff on the web about it then?
A. Because fundamentalist christians in the USA, such as Pat Robinson, used the term to describe their paranoid end-times fantasy of a secret Satanic conspiracy that planned to take over the world and bring about the rule of the anti-Christ. At the same time hard-right wing americans used the term to describe their own pet conspiracy theory of a secret communist plot to take over the world and build a totalitarian collectivist one world government. I personally see at as a grand insidious hoax on a par with the ‘rotocols of Zion’, which could if left unchecked and uncountered, lead to the mass extermination of pagans and occultists, in much the same way that earlier conspiracy theory lead to the mass extermination of anyone the Fascists and National Socialists considered as ‘Jewish’. If a large minority group like Europe’s Jewish population in the 20th century were unable to resist the hatred stirred up against them by people willing to spread hate propaganda, then the much smaller minority groupings of pagan’s and occultists won’t be able resist if people start believing the hate propaganda that fundamentalist christians are trying to stir up against them.
Q. Then why do politicians keep talking about a new world order?
A. They don’t. At least not in the sense the conspiracy theorists imply. Politicians have used term to describe any significant shift in the world’s balance of political and economic power.
Q. This is so confusing, how can we tell the difference?
A. Easy. The fundamentalist Christian propagandists capitalise all the letters, or even initialise them into a N.W.O. acronym in order to make it look like the name of an actual organisation.
Q. So when politicians talk about forming a new world order, you support them?
A. Probably not. Saying you want things to change says nothing about how you want things to change. Most politicians, including in democracies, tend towards a very authoritarian world view, and mostly look to change things in such a way as to benefit their own financial interests and increase their personal power base.
Q. So what kind of new world order do you want?
A. I want to see more bottom-up change, that slowly dismantles the means by which the few can hold power over the many, whether that few are elected or otherwise. Power to individuals and communities to chose their own way of life, not dictated to and controlled by politicians. My body, my mind, my choice.
Q. Thankyou Sally, its been good talking to me.
A. No problem Sally, thanks for asking these questions! It really helped me get my head around writing about the whole thing.
