Well there is the Silent weapons for a Quiet War report Im sure you have seen the thread,it makes the same points as Iron Mountian,the PANC was pedestrian to me.I suspect there is a New Iron Mountian group operating right now.

Well now that we are 40+ years in the future it makes you wonder if another Iron Mountian project might have come up with next. Now of course one would point out PNAC, but that wasn't exactly done in secret nor nearly as broad reaching in scope as this report.
As for the global reaching aspect, well I am sure the results were indeed shared in some circles. Some of the report reads as though it had some influence from Gene Roddenberry's vison of Earth's future in Star Trek as well as other sci-fi writers of the time. The way the report dismisses Huxley's Brave New World and Orwell's 1984 (and I would imagine Animal Farm was implied as well) makes me glad that they had not read Burgess's A Clockwork Orange despite it being five years old at the time. Or maybe that did and would rather keep things from degrading to that level of dystopia.
