The First Global Revolution by Alexander King and Bertrand Schneider


I just read The First Global Revolution by Alexander King and Bertrand Schneider.

On the back of the book it talks about The Club of Rome:

Alexander King, one of Britain’s most respected scientists, is a founding member of the Club of Rome, which includes among its one hundred members many public figures, business and industrial leaders, scientists, and heads of state. Bertrand Schneider, the Club’s secretary-general, is a Fellow of the World Academy of Art and Science. [1]

Near the front of the book it says that the book is A Report by the Council of The Club of Rome.

I guess The Club of Rome is pretty big cause they have royalty going to their meetings:

“No generation has ever liked its prophets, least of all those who point out the consequences of bad judgment and lack of foresight.
The Club of Rome can take pride in the fact that it has been unpopular for the last twenty years. I hope it will continue for many years to come to spell out the unpalatable facts and to unsettle the conscience of the smug and the apathetic.”

Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
Message to the Twentieth Anniversary
Conference of The Club of Rome
Paris 1988 [2]

So from that Prince Philip quote I guess The Club of Rome started in 1968 (1988 – 20 = 1968).

They even got a quote by that Toynbee guy who influenced Milner and Rhodes and the Round Table Groups like was talked about in the Carroll Quigley books; Tragedy And Hope and The Anglo-American Establishment.

“The cult of sovereignty has become mankind’s major religion. Its God demands human sacrifice.”

Arnold Toynbee [3]

Toynbee can also be regarded as the founder of the method used by the Group later, especially in the Round Table Groups and in the Royal Institute of International Affairs. As described by Benjamin Jowett, Master of Billiol, in his preface to the 1884 edition of Toynbee’s Lectures on the Industrial Revolution, this method was as follows: “He would gather his friends around him; they would form an organization; they would work on quietly for a time, some at Oxford, some in London; they would prepare themselves in different parts of the subject until they were ready to strike in public.” In a prefatory note to this same edition, Toynbee’s widow wrote: “The whole has been revised by the friend who shared by husband’s entire intellectual life, Mr. Alfred Milner, without whose help the volume would have been far more imperfect than it is, but whose friendship was too close and tender to allow now of a word of thanks.” [4]

They say a couple members of The Club of Rome in the book like Maurice Strong and Wangari Maathai. So they have people in the UN and people doing grass-roots stuff.

On the initiative of Maurice Strong1 and the Club of Rome, a meeting was held in 1989 in Denver with some forty Colorado decision makers . . .

[Footnote on the page on the above stuff for Maurice Strong] 1Secretary General of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, member of the Club of Rome. [5]

In Kenya a woman, Wangari Maathai — founder and President of the grass-roots Green Belt Movement and member of The Club of Rome . . . [6]

They have some cool quotes in the book:

“Ah love! Could thou and I with fate conspire,
to grasp this sorry scheme of things entire,
would not we shatter it to bits and then,
remould it nearer to the heart’s desire.”

Omar Khayyam [7]

“We must no longer wait for tomorrow; it has to be invented.”

Gaston Berger [8]

So its like you just think of the world you want to bring in, smash the current world to bits, and then rebuild the world to the way you want it to be.

Other cool stuff in the book is when they talk about three trading groups:

Neither can we ignore geostrategic change. We are currently witnessing the emergence of three gigantic trading and industrial economic groupings. The North American market in which Canada has now joined the United States and which Mexico is expected to join, will inevitably continue to be an industrial and postindustrial group of great power. Its immediate future, however, is clouded by the immense deficit which, amazingly, the United States has allowed to accumulate in recent years.
The development of the European Community, despite the years of hesitation, is now acquiring substance as its members see tangible economic and political advantages in co-operation and devise new mechanisms for it. As 1993 approaches, with its completion of economic integration, the Community has begun discussion of political unity. This has become especially urgent with the reunification of East and West Germany. A Community embracing the whole of Western Europe and later joined by its Eastern neighbours — whose transformed economies should make this possible — would constitute a second bloc of great strength. Despite present confusion, it is not impossible that the European republics of the Soviet Union will eventually follow the same road, thus constructing Europe “from the Atlantic to the Ural Mountains,” as was expressed by Charles de Gaulle in 1960.2

[Footnote on the page for the above stuff] 2In a television interview during his visit to Paris in 1989, Michael Gorbachev quoted this same statement by de Gaulle when referring to Europe.

The third bloc consists of Japan and the ASEAN [, Association of South-East Asian Nations,] countries, including for example Thailand, Indonesia or Malaysia, which are growing rapidly. Later, perhaps Australia and New Zealand, which have strong trading links with the other Pacific countries, may find themselves in this grouping. Even at this early stage of development, the existence of these three blocs signifies an utterly different world pattern of trade and industry. [9]

They also mention “Big Brother”, like that show on television, but I think this is something different.

It is not possible at this stage to foresee the consequences of these innovations with any clarity, but some trends are already visible. In the information society interdependence between individuals and between countries will increase through the immediate visibility of information. it will lead to a greater complexity of institutions and societies. It could enable a high degree of power and decision making, but it could equally well serve the will of unscrupulous leaders to consolidate centralized power. There will be the means for the electronic control of everyone’s activities by “Big Brother” dictators and societies, far more effective than myriads of secret police. [10]

They talk about population control. If I was Earth Emperor I would reduce the population of bees and those lady bugs that bite, cause I don’t like those.

Population control, necessary as it is, must be planned in terms of human well-being. It is of paramount importance that all countries striving for development should design their population policies. These policies have to be based on detailed exploration of the demographic growth prospects in relation to resource availability and development aims, including the standard of living which each country hopes to achieve. Only through informed assessment of such prospects can development planning be realistic. If the public is to respond to population control needs, it must be given sufficient information to understand the dangers of overpopulation for the individual and the benefits that would flow from population growth restraint. Such conditions are necessary if population planning is to be implemented with humanity. [11]

They talk about the media:

. . . the media are one of the main agents in forming public opinion and the thinking of individuals. [12]

They talk about Elite thinking and popular thinking. To be Earth Emperor you got to have thinking at a high point, like bringing in a single world government, where the popular thinking is just about stuff like politics.

Elites everywhere reconcile easily despite the surface controversy. The general public is not involved, only manipulated, in debates of this type. The gulf between elite thinking and thinking at a popular level is enormous. Here is where we find distortions and tensions difficult or even impossible to resolve. [13]

They talk about in the book how politics is a joke:

It is simply not good enough that access to leadership be achieved through good television performances and simplistic speeches aimed at manipulating the masses into enthusiastic support with empty promises and avoidance of realities. [14]

What got me thinking in this book was where they talk about the need of having an enemy to bring the world together:

It would seem that men and women need a common motivation, namely a common adversary to organize and act together; in the vacuum such motivations seem to have ceased to exist — or have yet to be found.
The need for enemies seem to be a common historical factor. States have striven to overcome domestic failure and internal contradictions by designating external enemies. The scapegoat practice is as old as mankind itself. When things become too difficult at home, divert attention by adventure abroad. Bring the divided nation together to face an outside enemy, either a real one or else one invented for the purpose. With the disappearance of the traditional enemy, the temptation is to designate as scapegoat religious or ethnic minorities whose differences are disturbing. [15]

So one thing I was thinking that you could do as Earth Emperor that would bring the world together is to have aliens attack the earth. Like U.F.O.s are just Unidentified Flying Objects. So you could build these weird airplanes that look like weird alien space ships, then genetically modify humans to look all messed up by putting animals into them, then send them out with their airplane space ships and have the media say that aliens are attacking the world.

Then I thought that that was hard work. A couple pages later they gave me another idea to bring the world together:

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. . . . The real enemy, then, is humanity itself. [16]

They talk about using CO2 as a way to blame humans for causing global warming:

The fundamental need is to reduce carbon dioxide emission . . . [17]

I don’t think people will believe that they are causing global warming, cause I learned in school that there have been a bunch of ice ages. So that would mean that there would have to be global warming between those ice ages, cause if there wasn’t then it would just be one ice age and we would still be in an ice age. So global warming is just a natural thing. So you would have to take that information out of school in order to be able to trick people to believe that they are causing the global warming.

So I was thinking that if you blame global warming on carbon, and that humanity is causing it, then it is a good idea, cause in the Carroll Quigley book one guy says that you have to tax everybody in order to have a single government.

He [, Lionel Curtis.] pointed out it [, the League of Nations,] could be a world government only if it represented peoples and not states, and if it had the power to tax those peoples. It should simply be an interstate conference of the world. [18]

So it would be cool to blame people, cause of carbon, for causing global warming, cause one thing everyone has in common is carbon dioxide.

And you can get people to believe that it’s carbon dioxide that’s causing global warming by doing that thing that Carroll Quigley talks about in his book where you get a bunch of people that the public think are separate (i.e. journalists, T.V. people, etc.), but they are all connected together, and you have them all saying the same thing; that people are causing global warming.

The greater part of its [, The Times,] influence arose from its position as one of several branches of a single group, the Milner Group. By the interaction of these various branches on one another, under the pretense that each branch was an autonomous power, the influence of each branch was an autonomous power, the influence of each branch was increased through a process of mutual reinforcement. The unanimity among the various branches was believed by the outside world to be the result of the influence of a single Truth, while really it was the result of the existence of a single group. Thus a statesman (a member of the Group) announces a policy. About the same time, the Royal Institute of International Affairs publishes a study on the subject, and an Oxford don, a Fellow of All Souls (and a member of the Group) also publishes a volume on the subject (probably through a publishing house, like G. Bell and Sons or Faber and Faber, allied to the Group). The statesman’s policy is subjected to critical analysis and final approval in a “leader” in The Times, while the two books are reviewed (in a single review) in The Times Literary Supplement. Both the “leader” and the review are anonymous but are written by the members of the Group. And finally, at about the same time, an anonymous article in The Round Table strongly advocates the same policy. The cumulative effect of such tactics as this, even if each tactical move influences only a small number of important people, is bound to be great. If necessary, the strategy can be carried further, by arranging for the secretary to the Rhodes Trustees to go to America for a series of “informal discussions” with former Rhodes Scholars, while a prominent retired statesman (possibly a former Viceroy of India) is persuaded to say a few words at the unveiling of a plaque in All Souls or New College in honor of some deceased Warden. By a curious coincidence, both the “informal discussions” in America and the unveiling speech at Oxford touch on the same topical subject. [19]

So that was what I was thinking. So carbon tax would be a good thing for being Earth Emperor cause then that would be the world tax for everybody.

That’s about it.

    Well done. only bit you got wrong was the date, all of your thoughts are alive and well in Australia at this time. All the people are following along like sheep – won’t look at the truth and are happily putting their necks in the hangman’s noose

  • Jeannon Kralj

    Thanks again for nice overview of this book.

    This is the old problem-reaction-solution routine (Hegelian dialectic) in spades.


    social, economic, technological, and cultural upheavals –



    There will be this engineered/created global worldwide revolution. People are screaming “We’ve had enough. We must do something.”


    This book sets forth a strategy for world survival. This strategy is to be implemented at the time of the onset of this world revolution. The engineers of this strategy have promoted destruction of nation states and their national SOVEREIGNTY and have thus greated, by the information highway and so many other ways, “a small planet” that they claim we the people are hell bent on destroying when they are the ones who are hell bent on eliminating 95 percent of humankind and the earth and its atmosphere along with it with all of their environmental and other created crises.

    The ultimate solution for all these created crises is that they, our saviors, will attack world crises by attacking humans (weather control, mind control with HAARP and other atmospheric manipulations as well as stuff they put in the air and our food and vaccines) and installing the world death and slavery system known as the New World Order.

    The operative word in all of this is “order.” God has told us in the bible what “order” is in every aspect of human existence. These “world emperors” have an upside down conept of “order”. There will never be complete order and peace in this world because man and this universe are fallen. Attempts to sell a one world system under the terms “order”, “peace” and love and “saving the planet” are truly the most DIABOLICAL deception (solution) ever for all humans on earth.

     Hahah good work buddy.. I love your style, looking all tired and out of
    it, and looking like you wouldnt know a thing about this, but you have
    nailed it to the letter. Nothing but a diabolical and twisted plan to
    just depopulate the world under the guise of ‘saving the kids and the
    earth’. These people should just kill themselves if they want to help
    the earth so much.
