want Jim Watt around to jeopardize the same “geopolitical” (one-world) strategy of resource monopolization that they are pursuing today:
If a world government is to work smoothly, certain economic conditions will have to be fulfilled. Various raw materials are essential to industry. Of these, at present, oil is one of the most important. Probably uranium, though no longer needed for purposes of war, will be essential for the industrial use of nuclear energy. THERE IS NO JUSTIVE IN THE PRIVATE OWNERSHIP OF SUCH ESSENTIAL RAW MATERIALS – AND I THINK WE MUST INCLUDE IN UNDESIRABLE OWNERSHIP, NOT ONLY THAT BY INDIVIDUALS OR COMPANIES, BUT ALSO BY SEPARATE STATES. THE RAW MATERIALS WITHOUT WHICH INDUSTRY IS IMPOSSIBLE SHOULD BELONG TO THE INTERNATIONAL AUTHORITY AND GRANTED TO SEPARATE NATIONS.
Centralized monopolization and control of world resources remains the dedicated goal of the aristocratic policy making elite working through the networks and institutions we have identified. In July, New York Times columnist James “Scotty” Reston, an unabashed anglophile, echoed an earlier, June 30 piece by Canadian columnist Gwynne Dyer, a member of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS). Dyer put it this way:
…it came as a mild shock when J.F. Taylor, one of the leading historians of our age, told me recently that he believes the only hope of avoiding a catastrophic world war that would end civilization was for somebody to create a world empire.
This is heavy stuff, but unfortunately Taylor is largely right. A world of 150 sovereign states, all supporting military forces and accepting war as a normal way of settling dispute, is doomed once it has access to weapons of mass destruction… So long as there are separate states in the world, the eventual collapse of civilization is inevitable.
Yet those 150 sovereign states will not voluntarily abolish themselves. Almost two-thirds of them are new since 1945, and their people are still entranced by the heady delights of independence. Even the olde countries are still afflicted with the disease of nationalism; indeed, being also the more industrialized countries, they constitute the main present danger to everyone’s survival…
The old slogan of the 1950’s is still relevant: one world or none. (emphasis added, Eds.)
The destruction of the nation-state and the triumph of “one worldism” is the open aim of the Forces grouped in and around the Council on Foreign Relations and its Trilateral Commission. “Supranationalism” and “global interdependence” are their buzzwords for this scheme.
ROBERT O. ANDERSON’S ASPEN INSTITUTE
On the surface, Robert O. Anderson appears to exemplify the independent entrepreneur. A former banker and cattleman, Anderson rose from relative obscurity in the 1950’s to head what has become the largest domestic oil producer and one of the world’s dominant natural resource concerns, the Atlantic Richfield Corporation. With annual sales of $16 Billion, ARCO ranks number 7 among the majors in petroleum, number 1 in silver, number 3 in copper and number 5 in aluminum.
Anderson is the largest individual landowner in the U.S. Besides serving as the chairman of ARCO and the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies, Anderson is a director of the Chase Manhattan Bank, the Chase Manhattan Corporation, CBS, Inc., and Pan Am. A Republican Party stalwart, Anderson served on the Republican National Committee from 1968-1972. He is a trustee of the University of Chicago (his alma mater), and the California Institute of Technology. He is also owner, as of 1976, of the British newspaper the London Sunday Observor.
An all-American success story? Not quite.
From his childhood in Chicago, where his father was with the First National Bank of Chicago, Robert O. Anderson was cultivated by the University of Chicago president Robert Maynard Hutchins, a self-proclaimed one-worlder and advocate of radical liberalism. From kindergarten through college Anderson was trained in special experimental schools run by the University of Chicago. With Katherine Meyer Graham of Newsweek Magazine and Senator Charles Percy, Robert O. Anderson was a graduate of the Hutchins curriculum, and Hutchins shaped Anderson’s outlook. This outlook demands resource monopolization and control. In 1968, drillers for Atlantic Richfield discovered the huge Prudhoe Bay oil field in Alaska. Virtually overnight ARCO was capitalized into the top ranks in domestic production. Only one year later, Robert O. Anderson contributed $200,000 in personal funds to launch the radical environmental group, Friends of The Earth. This organization wanted to lock up and prevent further development of resources. Ten years and several hundred million dollars later, the
