The Club of Rome is a global think tank that deals with a variety of international political issues. It was founded in April 1968 and raised considerable public attention in 1972 with its report The Limits to Growth. The club states that its mission is “to act as a global catalyst for change through the identification and analysis of the crucial problems facing humanity and the communication of such problems to the most important public and private decision makers as well as to the general public.” Since 1 July 2008, the organization has its headquarters in Winterthur, Switzerland.
The Club’s principle areas of concern are:
- Environmental Movement
In 1993, the Club published The First Global Revolution. According to this book, divided nations require common enemies to unite them, “either a real one or else one invented for the purpose.“
Because of the sudden absence of traditional enemies, “new enemies must be identified.”
“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill….All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”
The Club of Rome was created in 1968 by the Morgenthau Group, its original purpose was to create a New World Order by the year 2000. The Club of Rome has an hidden agenda to divide the entire world into ten regions or kingdoms.
Establishment of the Club of Rome
In April, 1968, the Club of Rome was founded by members of the original Morgenthau group during a meeting at Rockefeller’s Private house in Bellagio, Italy. The meeting was organized by Aurelio Peccei, an Italian industrialist who had close relations to the Olivetti Corporation and Fiat. He claimed to have solutions for world peace and prosperity, which could be accomplished through a New World Order.
The Club of Rome was established with 75 prominent industrialists, economists and scientists members from 25 nations. The Bilderberg Group and the Club of Rome are the most important foreign policy arms of the Round table, which is led by the Committee of 300.
Many of the Club of Rome members were drawn from NATO, and they have been able to create a lot of what NATO claims are its policies. Through Lord Carrington, they were able to split NATO into two groups, a left-wing political faction, and its former military alliance.
In 1973, the Club of Rome released a report entitled “Limits to Growth“, which dealt with the problem of overpopulation.
In the August, 1980 edition of Fusion magazine, Howard Odum, a marine biologist at the University of Florida, who was a member of the Club of Rome, was quoted, saying: “It’s necessary that the U.S. cut its population by 2/3 within the next 50 years.” He did not mention how this should be accomplished.
During the presidency of Jimmy Carter, a task force was created to expand the “Limits on Growth” document, and on 24 July, 1980, a two-volume report was released entitled “Global 2000 Report” which had been authored by former Secretary of State Cyrus R. Vance. The report, which was presented to President Carter, attempted to project global economic trends for the next two decades, and indicated that there aren’t enough resources on earth to support the expected dramatic increase in the world population. The document says the population of the United States should be reduced by 100 million people by the year 2050.
About half a year later, the Council on Environmental Quality made recommendations based on the document, entitled “Global Future: A Time to Act.” They proposed an aggressive plan to control the population which included contraception, abortion and sterilization.
In August, 1982, the Executive Intelligence Review released a document entitled “Global 2000: Blueprint for Genocide” which stated the 2 before mentioned Presidential documents “are correctly understood as political statements of intent – the intent on the part of such policy centers as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the International Monetary Fund, to pursue policies that will result not only in the death of the 120 million cited in the reports, but in the death of upwards of two billion people by the year 2000.” Throughout the world, the Club of Rome has said that genocide should be used to eliminate people who they refer to as “useless eaters.“
