Dag Hammarskjöld
Dag Hjalmar Agne Carl Hammarskjöld (1905-1961) was Secretary-General of the United Nations from 1953 until September 1961, when he died in a plane crash while on a peace mission in the Congo. He was born on July, 29, 1905, in Jonkoping, Sweden.
Many Americans believe that they live in a democratic country. However, the United States is not a democracy but rather a republic.

A republic is a form of government in which the power lies with the citizens to elect representatives who make policy decisions on their behalf. In the American Republic, all citizens also have rights based on the Constitution that cannot be voted away.

In a true democracy, citizens' rights are decided based on majority vote. Although key characteristics of democracy include freedom and equality under the law, democracies must be legislated by strict checks and balances in order to avoid becoming oppressive of minorities.
The History of the United Nations

Summary: The United Nations has been shaping history since its inception in 1945. What are the foundational dogmas guiding this global organization?

In 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt coined the term "United Nations," the name first used to describe the 26 nations who pledged their governments to fight the Axis powers during World War II. But the idea of global government has been around since a lot earlier than the 20th century. Stephen P. Duggan Sr., former Director of the Council on Foreign Relations, explains:

The idea of preserving unity among civilized men, of promoting universal allegiance to a common lawgiver and obedience to a common law, appealed powerfully to thoughtful men throughout the "Dark" and "Middle" Ages, and has continued to affect mankind to the present day.i

The first recent attempt at creating a "universal allegiance to a common lawgiver" was the League of Nations, an organization established in 1919 after World War I "to promote international cooperation and to achieve peace and security."ii Peace and security may seem like noble goals, but when we remember that the Jesuits have been working behind the scenes to bring the world under the authority of the Papacy, the whole idea of a universal allegiance becomes less innocent.

Historian Bill Hughes tell us this:

After World War One, an attempt was made to set up a one-world government, and the League of Nations was established. Senator Henry Cabot Lodge Sr. prevented the United States from joining the League of Nations. The Jesuits’ plot to create a one world governing body from which they could control the world, was stopped only temporarily. This part of the Jesuits’ plan had to wait another 27 years for a repeat performance, when the Second World War would result in the United Nations.iii

The United Nations website tells us that "the United Nations officially came into existence on October 24, 1945."iv

Arthur Balfour

Arthur Balfour, one man instrumental in forming the League of Nations. Watch our ADtv video...

Arthur Balfour (1848-1930) was one man instrumental in the forming of the League of Nations. He was Prime Minister of England from 1902 to 1905 and later became Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs. Balfour represented Britain in the League from 1920 until 1922.v

Balfour was a member of several secret societies such as the Apostles Club, and in 1893 served as president of the Society for Psychical Research.vi Biographer Eugene Rasor writes that Balfour “visited mediums, arranged seances, and was a spiritualist...seances were held at (his townhome) Carlton Gardens.”vii

Arthur Balfour also helped in founding a group called the Synthetic Society.viii Balfour invited Frederic Myers of the Society for Psychical Research to join, and together they created "The preamble of all religions," which says, "We can therefore obtain information about the metetherial plane by 'communicating' with the discarnate in the orthodox ways."ix

Balfour and his Synthetic Society aren't the only spiritual foundations of the United Nations. Read about UN official Robert Muller and his plans for one-world education and religion

Political Concerns

First Secretary-General of the United Nations Trygve Lie (1896-1968). Watch our ADtv video about the...

The stated aim of the United Nations is "maintaining international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations and promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights."x However, the political backgrounds of many important UN officials point towards socialist philosophy. David Rivera writes this in his book Final Warning: The History of the New World Order:

Trygve Lie, the first official UN Secretary-General, was a high-ranking member of Norway’s Social Democratic Labor Party, which was an offshoot of the Third Communist International. Dag Hammarskjöld, the second Secretary-General, was a Swedish socialist who openly pushed communist policies, and U Thant, the third Secretary, was a Marxist.xi

Dag Hammarskjöld was responsible for the interreligious meditation room at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

U Thant, mentor to Robert Muller, praised Russian communist Vladimir Lenin's leadership, saying that his "ideals of peace and peaceful coexistence among states have won widespread international acceptance and they are in line with the aims of the U. N. charter."xii Thant was also a key supporter of a one-world government. He said this:

I can only conclude from the information that is available to me as Secretary-General that the members of the United Nations have perhaps ten years left in which to subordinate their ancient quarrels and launch a global partnership.xiii

World federalists hold before us the vision of a unified mankind living in peace under a just world order...The heart of their program—a world under law—is realistic and attainable.xiv
