United Nations

The United Nations Organization (UNO) or simply United Nations (UN) is an international organization whose stated aims are facilitating cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress, human rights, and achievement of world peace. The UN was founded in 1945 after World War II to replace the League of Nations, to stop wars between countries, and to provide a platform for dialogue. It contains multiple subsidiary organizations to carry out its missions.

There are currently 192 member states, including nearly every sovereign state in the world. From its offices around the world, the UN and its specialized agencies decide on substantive and administrative issues in regular meetings held throughout the year. The organization has six principal organs: the General Assembly (the main deliberative assembly); the Security Council (for deciding certain resolutions for peace and security); the Economic and Social Council (for assisting in promoting international economic and social cooperation and development); the Secretariat (for providing studies, information, and facilities needed by the UN); the International Court of Justice (the primary judicial organ); and the United Nations Trusteeship Council (which is currently inactive). Other prominent UN System agencies include the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Food Programme (WFP), World Trade Organisation (WTO), World Bank (WB), International Monetary Fund (IMF), Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and many others.

UN and a NWO

Julian Huxley (brother of Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World) was involved in the setting up of UNESCO and an advocate of eugenics and population control. In 1946 he had this to say:

The task laid upon UNESCO of promoting peace and security can never wholly be realised to the means assigned to it – education, science and culture. It must envisage some form of world political unity, whether through a single world government or otherwise……specifically, in its education programme it can stress the ultimate need for world political unity and familiarise all peoples with the implications of the transfer of full sovereignty from separate nations to a world organisation……one other item which UNESCO should put on its programme as soon as possible is the study of the application of psycho-analysis and other schools of ‘deep’ psychology in education.


And more alarmingly he stated:

Taking the techniques of persuasion and information and true propaganda that we have learned to apply nationally in war, and deliberately bending them to the international tasks of peace, if necessary utilising them, as Lenin envisaged, to overcome the resistance of millions.
