The Axis World Order

The totalitarian order must go because it is contrary to the spiritual vision. The world order, as visioned by Hitler, is based upon the subjection of the weak to the rule of a super-Germany; it is one in which the life of the little nations will be allowed to go on just in so far as they serve the need of Germany. The lesser Axis powers are permitted existence only because they benefit German aims—Italy, to give Germany scope in the Mediterranean; Japan, to handle the Asiatic problem which is too large for Germany to handle alone. It is an order whose intention is that the best of all industrial and agricultural products shall go to Germany and the unwanted residue to the little nations. It is an order [188] in which the educational processes will be controlled by the dominant super-race. All departments of knowledge will be subordinated to the glorification of Germany. Germany will be portrayed as the seed of all world glory, and as the ruthless savior of mankind; the beauties of war, of struggle and of physical strength will be emphasized, and these so-called admirable objectives of the human spirit will be developed to produce a race of men in whom the "effeminate" beauties of loving kindness and wise consideration for others will find no place.

Because totalitarism is contrary to all spiritual concepts and laws it cannot survive, eventually the people living within these countries will rise up and demand their rights and either destroy those who are their controllers and/or vote them out, oust them out; but however they finally decide that they need to be free will determine how they will proceed.  Think about it the “world order” is based entirely on controlling the masses under a dictator, who will take away all of their freedoms and liberties – the people become prisoners of the state and have no free will – even those lesser countries who sided with Hitler, like Japan and Italy will only receive token benefits for their loyalty, while Hitler received all the benefits from the industrial and agricultural sources without sharing it with his own people or those who abetted him. This so-called world order will be a cold and calculating regime without any spiritual or compassionate values whatsoever – what a terrible way for people to exist in such a cold climate.

I would call your attention to the teaching now being given to the German youth. Might is right. The German belongs to the super-race, and all other races are inferior. Only a chosen aristocracy should be permitted the privilege of education and of rule. The masses of the people are no more than cattle and exist only to be slaves of the superior race. War is to men what childbirth is to women. War is a natural process and therefore eternally right. All sources of supply must be controlled by Germany, and consequently even those nations at present neutral must be brought under the German sphere of influence. The totalitarian powers will dominate the economic system of the world and control all imports and exports. The standard of living in both hemispheres will be lowered; everything will be related to the good of Germany, and no other nation will be considered. Christian teaching and Christian ethics must necessarily be eliminated, because Germany regards Christianity and its divine Founder as effeminate and weak, as emphasizing the softer qualities of human nature, and as responsible for the decadence of all nations, except Germany. Christianity must also be overthrown because it is based on Jewish sources; the rule of Christ must come to an end, because only the rule of force is right.

In the world order of the Axis powers, the individual has no rights; he has no freedom except in so far as he serves the state; there will be no liberty of thought or conscience, all issues will be decided by the state, and the private citizen [189] will have no right to an opinion. Men will be drafted like slaves into the service of the state.

Much was discussed concerning what it was and still is today to live under a totalitarian regime.  Everything beautiful and loving must be destroyed. There were no longer any Christian teachings; and anything to do with Jews (like Jesus) must be destroyed. The youth must remember who they are - the superior race; and they will be educated according to the dictates of the state, and that includes controlling the economy, the wealth, the industries not only within their own country but in all those countries that they now control.  The common man had no freedom or liberty to practice his or her faith, educate themselves and their children for they were now slaves to do the bidding of all their superiors – they actually had nothing to call their own, for even they belonged to the state and must live and act according to what is decided for them by that state.

Such is the picture of the order which the Axis powers are preparing to impose upon the world, and to this their own words testify. Only insight into the true nature of this crisis, a determination to face the facts, and fearlessness will suffice to defeat Hitler. This conquering fearlessness must be based on a recognition of the spiritual values involved, on a belief in God, and on a commonsense which is determined to establish security, right human relations and liberty.

All the values that make a democracy work for the people would be taken away by those Axis powers as they planned to take over every country in the world.  The most important subject that must and did prevail at that time was people’s reaction to the Axis powers and what it would mean if they were to lose their spiritual values and especially their loss of their liberties and right human relations among themselves and other nations – this was what forced most nations to join as allies in the fight for their precious values.

It is important that people face up to the facts immediately. They must realize what is the nature of the world order which Hitler is preparing to enforce, and what lies ahead of humanity if the Axis powers triumph. It is essential that the little children of the world be rescued from this overshadowing evil and from the false education to which they will be subjected if the totalitarian powers hold Europe in their grasp. The intensive culture given to the youth of Germany during the past twenty years has proved the effects of environing mental attitudes. These boys who roll their tanks and fly their planes over the countries of Europe and who wage war on women and children are the product of an educational system, and are therefore the victims of an evil process. The children of Germany must be rescued from the future which Hitler plans, as well as the children of other countries; the women of Germany must be set free from fear, as must the women in other lands; the population of Germany must also be liberated from the evil rule of Hitler. This is recognized by the allied nations. Make no mistake. The German is as dear to the heart of humanity, to God, to Christ and to all right-thinking people as are any other people. The German must be rescued from Hitler's world order as much as the Pole, the Jew, the Czech or any captive nation. In effecting this freedom, the allied nations and the neutral powers must preserve the spirit of goodwill, even when using force, which is the only means of conquest the totalitarian powers understand.

As we look back upon that terrible crisis between the Axis Powers and the Allies, we realize that people in representing the Allies had little choice but to act and the enforce their armies into action if they were going to preserve their democracies and freedoms.  There was also a realization that the children of the world would be the losers, for they would be brought up to become the future leaders of these totalitarian regimes, dictating to all those under their control how they should live, while never ever having a chance to learn about the beauty and spiritual values that would not be available to them as they grew into adults.  And what about the people of Germany who foolishly allowed this tyrant to become their leader, and who didn’t foresee the whole picture of their own futures under the Axis Power?  These same people would be subject to the same control and dominance as any other country that was taken over by those  aggressors. This was most likely a difficult time for all those who allowed this dictator to take over their countries; and there was little they could do to turn things around – it was up to the Allied forces to forgive and have the goodwill to help the Germans rebuild their nation after the war – but along with the goodwill the allies still had to make sure that there was no further military armies in the country of Germany even to this day – the allies placed their armies within Germany’s borders in order to make sure that such tyrants never came into power again in that country.


Steps Towards the New World Order

In contradistinction to the totalitarian world order, what should the rest of the world plan? Towards what world objectives should the democracies work? Utopian schemes, idealistic forms of government and cultural living processes have ever been the playthings of the human mind, down through the centuries. But these Utopias have been so far ahead of possibility that their presentation seems useless. They are most of them wholly impractical.

Certain immediate possibilities and attainable objectives can, however, be worked out, given a definite will-to-good and patience on the part of humanity.

Certain major and spiritual premises should lie back of all efforts to formulate the new world order. Let me state some of them:

1.The new world order must meet the immediate need and not be an attempt to satisfy some distant, idealistic vision.

All of mankind have thoughts of the perfect Eden the Utopian state – yet, even today we can see that these ideas are great in their concept but impractical in their actual objectives – for even today with many of mankind moving towards a more spiritual objective, there is still much of mankind who are still living in the material and illusional world, who would destroy these Utopian ideas within a very short period of time because much of mankind today are in control of what and how things should be done in every area of society.  So, as Master D. K. explains above, the need of the hour after WWII was to find ways to meet the immediate situation rather than go off on some ideal than living in the real world at that time.

2. The new world order must be appropriate to a world which has passed through a destructive crisis and to a humanity which is badly shattered by the experience.

Unlike the “world order” of the totalitarians, the “new world order” must meet the immediate needs of all the people within those countries who were still suffering from the mass destruction and the economic disasters that they were all experiencing at that particular time.

3. The new world order must lay the foundation for a future world order which will be possible only after a time of recovery, of reconstruction, and of rebuilding.

Notice the play on words that are given in the above suggestion – that at that time after the war, it would only be practical for the nations to “lay the foundation for a future world order”- this was an excellent idea as at that time, people were still badly in need of direction and aid from those countries willing and able to bring much needed supplies and help in the reconstruction while establishing order and support to all those who were subject to great loss in every area of their lives.

4. The new world order will be founded on the recognition that all men are equal in origin and goal but that all are at differing stages of evolutionary development; that personal integrity, intelligence, vision and experience, plus a marked goodwill, should indicate leadership. The domination of the proletariat over the aristocracy and bourgeoisie, as in Russia, or the domination of an entrenched aristocracy over the proletariat and middle classes, as has been until lately the case in Great Britain, must disappear. The control of labor by capital or the control of capital by labor must also go.

As we all know, mankind are all upon different rungs of Jacob’s Ladder, there are those who are highly evolved both intellectually and spiritually while there are those who are just beginning to grasp and open their minds to the possibility of living within their spiritual values.  There are still others who haven’t a clue and could care less about spiritual values – they are on the lower rungs of Jacob’s Ladder and are more concerned with survival – all individuals are part of God and all are on their own journey of the soul – but after the crisis everyone had just experienced, there had to be a “new world order” in which all men are equal but not all men were in the upper echelons in  their development, in their personal lives and even their caring about a “new world order” at that time.  The one thing that became most apparent to everyone was that the distribution of power must change – no longer should anyone live under domination and rules dictated by the aristocracy, the bourgeoisie and the reigning monarchs – also the control of labor as well as the control of capital by labor must go.  This would mean that there should be according to “the New World Order” a redistribution of the wealth (not held by some aristocrats and by dictators) and either a democracy and/or a republic should be run by a group of people from all walks of life, who could understand and validate what was to happen on any given occasion. These were some of the ideas put forth at that time and we can see today that many of the allied countries after the War did change their politics and become more democratic in their governing, while many others still clung even to this day to their monarchy as well as their dominate controlling governing.


5. In the new world order, the governing body in any nation should be composed of those who work for the greatest good of the greatest number and who at the same time offer opportunity to all, seeing to it that the individual is left free. Today the men of vision are achieving recognition, thus making possible a right choice of leaders. It was not possible until this century.

We can see that many nations who were governed by a monarchy have established political parties who actually run the country while the monarchy is more or less a figurehead.  We also see that many countries have allowed women to take over the reins of governing and they have proven to be very wise leaders.  Yet, even today we look around the world and we see many countries still under authoritarian rulership, while others are continually at war -especially those living in the Middle East who have been at war with one another for centuries and still are unable to move into a more diplomatic way of governing.  The biggest problem even within a democracy which is very fragile and can be destroyed by those who are voted in who are aggressive and have only selfish goals in mind; this is happening not only here within our United States but also in some of our European countries as well.  Again, it has a lot to do with money and power, selfish goals that require takeovers in weaker countries. And, unless the people wake up to the fact that they are again being led down the rabbit hole to the end of their freedoms, they will end up in a similar situation as the Germans who fell under the spell of Hitler and his ilk back in the 1930’s.  I think that in order to bring about a more perfect union, we have to educate our children to understand that right action, negotiation and a positive vision must be studied.  The other possibility is that they should also study what went wrong back in the 1930’s and 40’s, and make a study of how not to fall into the totalitarian mentality.  It must start in the school room and also by the families who must show through example and right living, how to make the right choices if we are ever to have a new world order.

6. The new world order will be founded on an active sense of responsibility. The rule will be "all for one and one for all." This attitude among nations will have to be developed. It is not yet present.

As the world moved on after WWII, they tried various forms of governing but in order to form a more perfect union, there needs to be a worldwide meeting of the minds of men who are willing and able to sit down a discuss the whole process of becoming “all for one and one for all” – otherwise, we run into the same old, I’d rather do it my way and then again, there’s a loss of possibilities of bringing about goodwill and peace throughout the world.  What we need are men and women of goodwill who see the need of mankind and must communicate and interact with all nations who should come to the table and discuss their needs, until at some point there is an agreement that all nations are able to work with one another and are also able to support those who are not economically and financially able to compete.  This is how wars start and how dictators crop up here and there because they are dissatisfied with the status quo and want to bring about change which is not always for the good of all but mainly for attaining some selfish goal.

7. The new world order will not impose a uniform type of government, a synthetic religion and a system of standardization upon the nations. The sovereign rights of each nation will be recognized, and its peculiar genius, individual trends and racial qualities will be permitted full expression. In one particular only should there be an attempt to produce unity, and that will be in the field of education.

Here again is the major problem when dealing on a worldwide situation.  When coming to the table the leaders of all countries must have their say and their rights discussed just like all the major powers, who in turn, must listen and then work out a plan wherein the sovereign rights of each and every nations will be recognized and the ways and means of solving problems will then be brought into the light so that everyone can add their advice and support to these lesser nations – this goes for the economic as well as every country’s right to practice their ethnic as well as racial qualities according to their particular dictates.  Again, education of the masses by those countries who have successfully worked out a democratic plan that is working.

8. The new world order will recognize that the produce of the world, the natural resources of the planet and its riches, belong to no one nation but should be shared by all. There will be no nations under the category "haves" and others under the opposite category. A fair and properly organized distribution of the wheat, the oil and the mineral wealth of the world will be developed, based upon the needs of each nation, upon its own internal resources and the requirements of its people. All this will be worked out in relation to the whole.

The sharing of all of every nation’s resources should be the first order of discussion for herein lies the problem facing most third-world countries.  They are continually at war with others who take what little they have to offer and leave many people starving and unable to support themselves or their families.  In order for the New World Order to work, there has to be an immediate plan that brings about a sharing of the wealth and at the same time a determination to find the ways and means for these lesser countries to produce some natural resources or other industries that will put people to work, raise the standards and living conditions and bring about a more positive attitude to all those involved.

9. In the preparatory period for the new world order there will be a steady and regulated disarmament. It will not be optional. No nation will be permitted to produce and organize any equipment for destructive purposes or to infringe the security of any other nation. One of the first tasks of any future peace conference will be to regulate this matter and gradually see to the disarming of the nations.


Disarmament would be the first protocol as each country turns to better living and working conditions, they see that because there is support from all the larger nations, there is no need to live in fear anymore and that everyone is free to live and move and educate themselves and their children. This will eventually shift these third-world countries into thriving and independent nations able to support themselves without the help of others.  This should be the goal of all who sit down at the table – the idea that the sooner each nations is able to find their own means of supporting themselves the happier and healthier their lives become, so part of the New World Order is to send those who are professionals when it comes to finding ways and means for individual small nations to support themselves and then to educate them in bringing these resources into a thriving success.  Therefore, when they reach that place and feel that they have been supported all along the way, they come to the understanding that there is no need for war and instruments of war, for now everyone is working and reaching goals that they never thought were possible.

These are the simple and general premises upon which the new world order must begin its work. These preliminary stages must be kept fluid and experimental; the vision of possibility must never be lost, and the foundations must be preserved inviolate, but the intermediate processes and the experimentations must be carried forward by men who, having the best interests of the whole at heart, can change the detail of organization whilst preserving the life of the organism.

Today, more than any other  time in our history, we see men and women who are the humanitarians around the world, working with these third-world countries, bringing aide in the form of doctors, medicine, food and supplies that are very much needed, while at the same time bringing with them those experts who can change sea water into drinking water for those areas in extreme drought, while in other areas, these same humanitarians are working with major companies throughout the world, in bringing the tools necessary for the education of the children, and aiding both women and men in moving their products throughout the world – so that people around the world can buy products that are unique to these countries and cannot be found anywhere else.  These movement are now very productive in India, Africa, South America and among the Native Americans here in our own country.  This is just a start of what can and will be possible as these ideas become a possibility and have proved beyond a doubt that there is money to be made from these home industries.  Bless all those who spend their lives in helping others to attain their freedom from oppression and bless all those doctors who travel throughout the world helping the poor and displaced people everywhere to better health.  There are organizations that are funded by good people everywhere who make sure that food, medicine and doctors are brought into the most remote areas of the world and we pray that they will be able to continue doing their service to humanity.  This will eventually bring about “the New World Order” everywhere on our planet.

Right Human Relations

The objective of their work can be summed up thus: the new world order will facilitate the establishing of right human relations, based on justice, on the recognition of inherited rights, on opportunity for all—irrespective of race, color or creed—on the suppression of crime and selfishness through right education, and on the recognition of divine potentialities in man as well as the recognition of a divine directing Intelligence in Whom man lives, and moves and has his being.

The above paragraph sums up what is going on not only among nations but among groups and organizations today – especially spiritual groups, who must understand and begin to educate everyone according to the law of “Right Human Relations”.  This disregard for other peoples’ opinions and spiritual beliefs is very prevalent in every land and added to this is the increase in hate and bigotry towards fellow human beings – in order to form a more perfect union and a “brotherhood of mankind” we must begin right where we are to set an example of goodwill towards everyone and to listen to other points of view and through discussion find a common ground in which to work with one another.  The growing problem has caused many cleavages and many people will leave the group, the organization and/or the political affiliation – just because of the inability to communicate, negotiate and find common ground in every single circumstance while operating with a concentrated heart and from group soul awareness.

The difficulties confronting the nations when the war is over may seem insuperable but—given vision, goodwill and patience—they can be solved. Assuming that humanity will not rest until the aggressor nations are subdued, it will be necessary for the conquering democracies to be generous, merciful, understanding and attentive to the voice of the people as a whole. It is that voice (usually sound in its pronouncements) which must be evoked, recognized and listened to, and not the voices of the separative exponents of any ideology, of any form of government, religion or party. The objective of those who are entrusted with the straightening out of the world is not the imposition of democracy upon the entire world or to force Christianity upon a world of diversified religions. It is surely to foster the best elements in any national government to which the people may subscribe, or which they intelligently endorse. Each nation should recognize that its form of government may be suited [193] to it and quite unsuited to another nation; it should be taught that the function of each nation is the perfecting of its national life, rhythm and machinery, so that it can be an efficient co-partner with all other nations.

It is equally essential that the new world order should develop in humanity a sense of divinity and of relationship to God, yet with no emphasis upon racial theologies and separative creeds. The essentials of religious and political beliefs must be taught and a new simplicity of life inculcated. Today, these are lost in the emphasis laid upon material possession, upon things and upon money. The problem of money will have to be faced; the problem of the distribution of wealth—whether natural or human—will need careful handling and a compromise reached between those nations which possess unlimited resources and those who have few or none; the problem of the varying forms of national government must be faced with courage and insight; the restoration—psychological, spiritual and physical—of mankind must constitute a primary responsibility. The sense of security must be put on a firm basis—the basis of right relationship, and not the basis of force. Men must feel secure because they are seeking to develop international goodwill and can trust each other, and are not therefore dependent upon the strength of their armies and fleets.

I think all that can be added here is that we all have to listen and not allow others who wish only to control not to have any position of leadership – while all nations have to work on their own weaknesses and seek advice from those who have been successful.  The democratic nations will be called upon to be generous with their time, money, advice and education of all those nations seeking to move forward and become part of the new world order.

The recognition of a spiritual Hierarchy which is working through the New Group of World Servers must steadily grow in some form or another. This will happen when the world statesmen and the rulers of the different nations and governing bodies—political and religious—are men of vision, spiritually motivated and selflessly inspired.

The future world order will be the effective expression of a fusion of the inner spiritual way of life and the outer civilized and cultural way of acting; this is a definite possibility because humanity, in its upper brackets, has already developed the power to live in the intellectual and physical worlds simultaneously. Many today are living in the spiritual world also. Tomorrow there will be many more.

We, the New Group of World Servers will be the spiritual leaders who will be responsible by our example of working as a “group soul” in introducing Hierarchy and educating others on how our Elder Brothers have always been behind the scenes supporting, advising and sending Their Light and Energy into our group in order for us to then send that great Energy and Love from Them into the hearts and minds of the whole human race.  This must be conveyed to the masses so that people everywhere will become familiar with Hierarchy and will be willing and able to welcome Them and especially fuse with Them as They externalize and become part of the New World Order.
