Commonism – The Beauty And The Beast Of Global Governance

A new spirit is hailed in the world – the spirit of Common-ism. All the major powers of the New Europe and the New Americas have entered into a political-spiritual alliance to bring about this new specter. Yesterday’s “isms” are Communism and Capitalism. The “ism” of tomorrow is Commonism.
From the jacket cover of “The Coming Century of Commonism, by Philip C. Bom


“…The common use of the word ‘democracy,’ together with the contradictory interpretations of the meaning of the word, is a semantic symbol of a civil war in the heart of Western civilization, in which a fanatical equalitarian creed has been pitted against a libertarian one.”
Reinhold Niebuhr, 1977

“We have to develop the process of democratization in all areas – political, economic and in the sphere of reconstructing our federation. We have to move ahead democratically in all areas and this movement toward greater justice and greater liberty, that is the same thing as the movement to socialism and to the implementation of the socialist idea..”
Mikhail Gorbachev, 1991

“In politics and ideology we are seeking to revive the living spirit of Leninism…based on the principle of more socialism and more democracy… consolidating our internationalist community of nations.”
Mikhail Gorbachev,


“We are saying this honestly, without trying to fool our own people or the world. Any hopes that we will begin to build a different, non-socialist society and go over to the other camp are unrealistic and futile. Those in the West who expect us to give up socialism will be disappointed. It is high time they understood this, even more importantly, proceed from that understanding in practical relations with the Soviet Union.”
Mikhail Gorbachev, 1987

“More than once he (Lenin) spoke about the priority of interests common to all humanity over class interests. It is only now that we have come to comprehend the entire depth and significance of these ideas. It is they that are feeding our philosophy of international relations, and the new way of thinking.”
Mikhail Gorbachev, 1987


“As long as the child breathes the poison of nationalism, education in world-mindedness can produce only precarious results. As we have pointed out, it is frequently the family that infects the child with extreme nationalism. The school should therefore use the means described earlier to combat family attitudes that favour jingoism…We shall presently recognize in nationalism the major obstacle to development of world-mindedness. We are at the beginning of a long process of breaking down the walls of national sovereignty. UNESCO must be the pioneer.”
William Benton, Assistant U.S. Secretary of State, UNESCO meeting, 1946

“Creating an effective global level of governance and management is clearly the biggest challenge we face in the next century…”
Maurice Strong, 1987

“Given the common stand that the Soviet Union and the United States have taken at the United Nations, it seems to me that we should be as forthcoming as we possibly can in terms of economics and I plan to do that… This remarkable cooperation…gets me inclined to recommend as close cooperation in the economic field as possible.”
President George Bush, September 9, 1990, USSR/US Summit, Helsinki


“Assisting the child in becoming an integrated individual who can deal with personal experience while seeing himself as a part of ‘the greater whole.’ In other words, promote growth of the group idea, so that group good, group understanding, group interrelations and group goodwill replace all limited, self-centered objectives, leading to group consciousness.”
Robert Muller, former Secretary-General, UN’s Economic and Social Council, 1995


“I have come to believe that we must take bold and unequivocal action: we must make the rescue of the environment the central organizing principle for civilization…Adopting a central organizing principle – one agreed to voluntarily – means embarking on an all-out effort to use every policy and program, every law and institution, every treaty and alliance, every tactic and strategy, every plan and course of action – to use, in short – every means to halt the destruction of the environment and to preserve and nurture our ecological system.”
Vice President Al Gore, Earth in the Balance


“When Communism finally hangs Capitalism, a Capitalist will sell us the rope.”
