Trilateral Commission



A short clip from a 1981 episode of Barney Miller, a US sitcom set in a NYPD station, was added to youtube earlier this year. It features a conspiracy nut, spouting information about the Trilateral Commission's plan for a New World Order.

For many in the UK, the term New World Order (NWO) will be synonymous with a speech given by then prime minister, Gordon Brown, to the CBI in 2007, in which he wedded UK destiny to the NWO; the sheer scale and speed and scope of globalisation.

Although Brown's speech contained countless NWO references, he refrained from mentioning the body inseparably linked to the ideology, the Trilateral Commission. Their off-stage work, particularly in schooling, however, is brought to the fore by John Taylor Gatto and Noam Chomsky;

At the end of a session (1hr, 18 secs) during Richard Grove's extensive interview with Gatto for the Tragedy and Hope website, Gatto, refers to the student unrest of, late 1960' early 1970's:

After National Policy was contradicted by the "riff raff " in colleges and high schools, word went out that it was never to happen again... Gatto explains how The Trilateral Commission, laid out their concerns in a report called The Crisis in Democracy (1975) ...In shorthand, the crisis is, if the people take it seriously, we've got trouble on our hands. So we have got to hide how powerful decisions are made even more rigorously than we have done in the past.

Chomsky, in his 2012 lecture, Education for whom and for what? (at 1 hour), notes that the Trilateral Commission comes from a more Liberal Internationalist perspective and he therefore questions them in their report referring to the crisis, as coming about by, literally having, too much democracy....Just like the far right...they assume their extraordinary power and their control of the State and other institutions is just the natural order. A primary concern (of the report) was the failures, of what they call, and I'm quoting, the Institutions responsible for the indoctrination of the young.

It's another excellent interview from Tragedy and Hope that brings us full circle to the clip at the top of this post.

Published in September 2015, author and lecturer, Patrick Wood warns of Technocracy being the imminent threat to democratic civilisation today.


In the late 1970s, Wood partnered the late Antony C. Sutton to co-author Trilaterals Over Washington, Volumes I and II. He tells how certain powers hindered their work through unofficially blacklisting their publications and discrediting their research by having it presented as comedy conspiracy on a popular TV sitcom.
