There Ain’t No Conspiracy Here

David Rockefeller, in his 2002 autobiography, Memoirs, assures us that there is no secret conspiracy to create a world government. While he proudly admits to being an internationalist, he insists that there is no secret plan to lead this country into some sort of world superstate. He also insists that those of us who believe in such a conspiracy are really the victims of “populist paranoia.” Let his words speak for themselves:
For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as “internationalists” and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.
So Rockefeller readily admits to his part in working to create a “one world” global, political, and economic structure — the very definition of a world government. He merely denies being part of a “secret cabal.” But then how does he explain the plan of Cecil Rhodes to set up a secret society to secure the world’s peace? Of course, all of that took place at the turn of the last century when such an idea was considered too idealistic to succeed. Yet, according to Professor Carroll Quigley’s book Tragedy and Hope, there is indeed an Anglo-American cabal that has been working toward the creation of a New World Order since the end of World War One.
For proof of the existence of the conspiracy, all we have to do is turn to the front page of the New York Times of April 9, 1902 and read all about it. Rhodes had died on March 26, 1902 in South Africa, and it was his intimate associate and executor, W. T. Stead, who provided the newspaper with this astounding story. The headline reads: “Mr. Rhodes’s Ideal of Anglo-Saxon Greatness. Statement of His Aims, Written for W. T. Stead in 1890. He Believed a Wealthy Secret Society Should Work to Secure the World’s Peace and a British-American Federation.”
Although Stead fell out with Rhodes over the Boer War, he still believed in the plan for the creation of a secret society to promote the goals of Rhodes. The Times article states:
In its three columns of complex sentences the whole of Mr. Rhodes’s international and individual philosophy is embraced. Perhaps it can best be summarized as an argument in favor of the organization of a secret society, on the lines of the Jesuit order, for the promotion of peace and welfare of the world, and the establishment of an American-British federation, with absolute homerule for the component parts.
