social movements have often come to be identified with the individuals
most perceived as embodying their expressed values and perspectives. That
being the case, one might suggest Arianna Huffington be considered the
perfect spokeswoman for the New World Order. For even though she definitely
lacks the intelligence required to manifest the cabalistic acumen needed
to orchestrate such a comprehensive plot, a number of the viewpoints she
expresses are nearly identical to those motivating those allied with this
At the heart of the New World Order is a radical dichotomy between how
the masses would be forced to live by their alleged betters and in the
Bacchanalian fashion in which the elites would continue to exist. In other
words, those advocating this form of cultural organization endorse a Don’t-Do-As-I-Do-But-Do-As-I-Say
approach to social ethics.
Foremost among the plans of the New World Order is to feudalize the population
by strictly controlling access of the average person to technologies,
resources, and necessities ---- even going so far as to stipulate in what
kind of dwelling an individual may live. These policies will, however,
in no way infringe upon the ability of bigshots in the overclass from
enjoying their own lives though.
For example, media dilettante Arianna Huffington introduced an ad campaign
accusing those of driving SUV’s of financing terrorism because of
the questionable gas mileage displayed by this mode of transportation.
But while the little guy is expected to return to a pre-industrial lifestyle,
don’t be fooled into thinking Arianna and her ilk will lead by example
by sharing in the intentionally-imposed hardship.
You might be a supporter of terrorism for driving an SUV around town,
but Miss Arianna gallivants across the country and around the globe aboard
private jets. She also has a 9,000 square foot house and, according to
an April 2000 issue of National Review, her wedding dress “cost
more than most college grads’ starting salaries” and the reception
well over $100,000.
But as she pointed out to Sean Hannity who dared highlight such hypocrisies,
she only flies where the planes are going anyway. Have her put on a few
pounds and work on her accent, this woman could serve as Anna Nicole Smith’s
Unfortunately, these attitudes aren’t the ravings of a lone madwoman
in the wilderness. They are in fact quite prevalent among many of those
holding positions of cultural influence.
For example, Norman Lear, who bankrolled
this propaganda, himself owns a 21 car garage that’s 45 feet tall;
most SUV dealer showrooms aren’t that large. Other eco-minded celebrities
wanting to tell you what to do while continuing to enjoy their own lives
of luxury include Jane Fonda (it figures) who has one of those SUV limousines
and Barbara Streisand who, according to WorldNetDaily.com, drives around
town in a 45-foot motorhome thinking herself too good for a public toilet
out of a fear of germs (but then again, those adorable restroom pathogens
can only endure so much trauma). It must be remembered this is the same
Barbara Streisand who during the California electricity crisis admonished
residents about hanging laundry out to dry rather than tossing it the
In the eyes of those like Arianna, however, it is not the place of commoners
to expose the inconsistencies of the self-important. Our role is simply
to obey. According to Lloyd Grove of the Washington Post, Huffington demanded
a formal apology from New York Post columnist Richard Jackson, lecturing
him about the impropriety of exposing celebrity duplicity.
Some might think this issue one merely of economics or conservation. Yet
the matter goes much deeper to embrace components of the ultimate or spiritual
in the attempt by those orchestrating this movement to control all facets
To advocates of the New World Order, religion is not the transcendent
source of truth by which even their actions will be judged but rather
an implement through which to whip the masses into compliance. Of the
“What Would Jesus Drive Campaign” the director of the Religion
Action Center of Reform Judaism told the Associated Press, “If you
in the auto industry manufacture and market more clean cars, we in the
American religious community will not only tell our people about it, we’ll
have prepared them to embrace such change. “ Gives a whole new meaning
to Huxley’s line in Brave New World, “In the Year of Our Ford.”
To those running with the World Council of Churches crowd, religion has
very little to do with the relationship of the individual to the eternal
God of the universe; rather it’s about spouting-off sociomanipulative
propaganda for the latest politically correct cause. Frankly, I have better
things to do Sunday mornings than being told what car to drive.
Arianna is herself no stranger to the bizarre symbiosis that develops
between aberrant religion and eccentric politics. Besides being a pundit,
Arianna is also a minister in the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness,
known as “MSIA” and pronounced “messiah” (something
extremely creepy in itself).
There’s much more to this group than Sunday sermons, choir practice,
and picnics on the church lawn. MSIA is a New Age group that believes
we are all a part of God but need the help of the “Mystic Traveler”
(the group’s leader of course) to help us in re-embracing the divine
As such, some people are higher up the metaphysical ladder than others.
Having had a number of out-of-body experiences (one could argue her mind
has yet to return), Huffington has ascended to a higher level of consciousness;
and, as has been argued since the days of Hegel, those of us trapped on
the lower planes of cosmic development can in no way apply our outdated
standards to those operating in the next epoch of the Universal Spirit.
That is why Arianna and those like her have no problem with flying around
in private jets yet chastise you for simply going to work and taking care
of your children.
An old adage warns beware of Greeks bearing gifts. It must be remembered
that not all Trojan horses are made of wood and hide marauding armies.
Many are composed of words and conceal ideas just as threatening to both
human liberty and individual well-being.
