Without being presumptuous, I'd like to offer some views on why a/the NWO is viewed negatively, rather than positively, for those who asked this
It's all about received wisdom. To some people, the word 'wisdom' triggers thoughts of ancient sages and soothsayers with long beards and grey
hair. To other people, the word is charged with religious, even fanatical, overtones. Still others hear echoes of intelligence and the simple art of
living. In the latter sense, received wisdom is really just the accumulated street smarts of human history. We learn by experience.
The post industrial era has generated enormous pride within the human heart. Technological developments have fostered the idea that humans are
mastering the manipulation of the physics, chemistry and biology that comprise our very existence. Although our scientific journals are very sobre and
cautious about their claims to truth, our media are saturated by stories about the 'great wonders of the modern world'. People love to reflect on
the idea of "progress" and the notion of gradual, continual improvement as though human history was synonymous with evolution, that slowly but
surely our intelligence and mastery of nature is or will make us better, stronger, healthier, more productive and more cohesive. But few ask - will it
make us wiser?
Think back to Sunday school. Man tried to unite the world under one language and ascend to heaven as though a god (master of nature). As a
consequence, Man became scattered, divided, and his langauge was garbled and multiplied into confusion.
Received wisdom says that pride comes before the fall. Ask any sportsperson, musician, actor, carpenter, bricklayer, in fact, anyone who has developed
their own talent. Any one of them will be able to tell you a story of when they were humble and performed beyond their expectations, and an inverse
story of when they were full of pride and self-glory and then were sorely humiliated. Of course in real life there is a scale or spectrum, but the two
extremes are perfect humility or imperfect pride. Perfect humility is eager to learn and cautious to execute. Imperfect pride is impatient to execute
and unwilling to learn. Received wisdom would suggest that there is a lot of the latter in the modern world. Someone is always telling someone else to
"think before you speak". But in this fast-paced, solution-focused postmodern world, people would rather act now and deal with the consequences
later. Imperfect pride has come to dominate human affairs at this late stage in history.
And to think it all started with the eating of a piece of knowledge fruit...
Has anyone noticed how public opinion is driven strongly by what "the latest research suggests..."? I notice this phrase used on a daily basis as
though it means "the new gosple is...". But when you really think about it, trusting the latest scientific research is actually non-scientific.
Reliable scientific facts are only those facts which stand the test of time. Anyone can make up some 'latest research'. According to some, the
latest research suggests that earth turns into a marshmellow for one second every morning at precisely 04:35 Australian Central Standard Time. But
only those assertions which stand up to centuries and millenia of scrutiny and scepticism can be reliably counted as 'received wisdom'.
But postindustrial, postmodern humanity is prideful and boastful. This should be the world's slogan today: "Act now, for tomorrow we will invent a
(I recommend anyone interested in this to read Milton's Paradise Lost and Regained
reflect on the characters/personalities of Satan, Adam and Eve and the Angels. A beautiful retelling and expansion of the classic biblical tale of
pride and fall.)
But what does this have to do with a 'New World Order'?
