The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) was an American think tank based in Washington, D.C. that lasted from early 1997 to 2006.
It was co-founded as a non-profit educational organization by neoconservatives William Kristol and Robert Kagan.
The PNAC's stated goal was "to promote American global leadership."
Rockpuck, have you seen either "Executive Action" or "Arlington Road"?
Both movies allude to the fact that a group, of subversive individuals, in essence herd their prey into an action, making that person the perfect patsy.
The fact all these "lone nuts" commit these major high-profile actions though is suspect, as it says one of two things, if they did in fact act alone, that either our Government and Law Enforcement agencies are so inept that they cannot figure out these things before they happen, or that society is breeding the perfect assassin without its own knowledge, neither theory there is plausible enough to me.
I can see a large group moving behind the scenes, and their agenda is to tighten the reigns, increase their funding through secrecy and deniability, and in essence commit treason through proxy against their own nation.
We can move this part of the debate into the "NWO" conspiracy. Many believe there is a select few who cooperate to move the World's politics.. starting wars, toppling governments, silent coup d'eta etc..
Why not? .. Why does a man go out and shoot up a school, a church, a work out facility, or just drive around randomly shooting? Because they snap.. they brew their hate for years and it finally comes spilling out. And after the fact the media and the self righteous media pundits disect the persons life and come to the conclusion: Oh jeeze we shoulda saw this coming" and go on to blame a number of people, institutions, government and so forth. Who do they NEVER blame? The person that did it. Why?
Any political and or social action on a large scale has to be organized and operated by a few individuals for it to occur. Would people spontaneously rise up and overthrow a government seemingly out of the blue? No, that never, ever, ever happens. There will always be a collection of like minded people that will strive to alter the beliefs of the many to achieve the gains of the few. Is it always a bad outcome for the many? No, most of the time it's not.. it's just a sway in political thought.

I like your replies, Rockpuck, however you and I will have to agree to disagree.
I figured out in the end, it was a set of keywords, designed to spook people who suspected Government intervention behind the scenes, as a means of discreditation, meaning anyone who "reacted" to those words, or tried to convince people "the New World Order" was out there, instantly became labeled as a "lone nut", so in essence it was a diversion, just to make people discredit themselves.
Why not? Really? I can see one individual doing something like this, or even two in maybe a decade, which is plausible, but how many school shootings, snipers, and other assorted idiocy have we had happen in the last three decades?
I began as a youth believing in the "New World Order", but figured out the truth behind their lies, this would be that there is a group, and many sub-groups, behind the scenes, sitting between the regular laws and the emergency laws (where F.E.M.A. comes in) who will manipulate events to happen.
No, people would not spontaneously "rise up" and revolt, that is an undertaking of massive proportions. I know that for a fact, I started the thread below and ATS'ers just ignored it.
Rockpuck, I have always enjoyed our conversations, and I hope to see you on these boards for a long time to come, and thanks for the enjoyable discertation on your views.
I am sure we both see a middle ground in here and that you and I would be as good of friends in person as we are here on ATS.
I will continue until you conform to my beliefs!
This is an interesting paragraph. You say chasing the NWO is like, I dunno, chasing a shadow.. you can conclude no NWO exist because the logic behind it is flawed. However, you proceed to use the same logic believers of the NWO use to justify a secret cabal organizing a secret cabal to throw people off the scent of the real secret cabal.
Your next paragraph is implying the actual key word NWO is a flag to target individuals? Really? I could never believe that. You are elevating the Government to the status of GOD again! Anytime someone comes in to discredit the NWO does not mean they are a Government agent.. hell I discredit the NWO, defend Masons, denounce the Illuminati and still call openly for revolution and constitutional practices. I must be sending mixed messages!
