“The World Man Is Here”

September 6, 2011

Note: The following are extracted from an older text by leading American socialist, Scott Nearing. His book, United World (Island Press, 1945), was a call to shift society from nationalism and individualism to worldism and groupthink. Reading these quotes reveals that the idea of globalization isn’t new, but one deeply rooted in the desire for a “united world.”

1) “World law is impossible without world government.” (p.15)

2) “Indoctrination works. Human loyalties can be and are speedily shifted by experience coupled with propaganda.” (pp.20-21)

3) “Worldizing processes are building up a great number and variety of world experiences. Millions of human beings, responding to these experiences, are already world conscious, world minded and prepared to function as citizens in a world society. Such human beings have passed through and graduated from the school of nationalism. They are worldists. They wait with impatience for the emergence of a world commonwealth.” (p.21)

4) “The world man is here. His coming has been heralded through the ages by far-seeing individuals who felt and dreamed and thought in terms of human solidarity.” (p.35)

5) “Those who see and feel the possibilities of world organization are world men. Their ultimate loyalty is world loyalty. Their ultimate form of organization is world organization.” (p.38)

6) “Social reconstruction today does not mean the rebuilding of civil society. It means the development of a world community.” (pp.39-40)

7) “The world diffusion of information and of ideas complement and supplement one another and produce human beings who are prepared to feel and think in world terms. There now exists a world public opinion… World opinion is always present, but it may take a notable event or a crisis to crystallize it.” (p.100)

8 ) “Men harnessed nature as they learned something of nature’s forces and processes. They can hope to move from provincial nationalism to cosmopolitan worldism as they learn to understand the nature of social change.” (p.140)

9) “A world society cannot be haphazard. Since there are no precedents, it cannot be traditional at this stage in its development. It can only be deliberative and experimental, planned and built up with particular objectives and with the aid of all available knowledge concerning the principles of social organization. Social engineering is a new science.” (p.221)

10) “World crisis and world chaos cannot be successfully handled in the absence of world authority… The rational, scientific answer to world crisis and world chaos is the organized world community… Historic forces are pushing humanity toward an era of worldism. World life means world-wide collective action.” (pp.248-249)

    It is still the same old lie; You can be like the gods.

      You’re right, Melissa. The only difference is that Nearing’s idea of the World Man isn’t about an individual ascending, but society as a whole rising to a new level – there is nothing new under the Sun…

    Revelation Thirteen :

    15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

    16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

    17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

    It seems the people of the world is resorting back to the spirit of babylon. Make a city that is unified on every side. Build with one mind and one goal towards heaven.

    Thanks for great summary. These are important quotes when talking with others. Just a note on N. 10 `Historic forces are pushing humanity.` Another Biblical reference (with previous Rev.13) Daniel 7:1-6 show our Big Four Power group (British Empire, Russian Confederacy & European Economic Union.) The World also includes the U.N. but of course the (Lion & the Leopard) British Commonwealth & European Union have veto over that. (Note: wind /spirit the same in Hebrew.) These are the 4 spirits of heaven (demonic) that go forth into all the world `pushing humanity.` (Note also Zechariah 6: 1 – 8 esp.5 & Rev. 6:1 – 8) The same 4 but different symbols for further description of character (beasts) & power of operation (horses) of these `historic forces.`

    Amen – True : The Beast that was healed of its grievous wound re-established itself (Germany, Japan, Italy) BUT into the world of money; and ALL the world marvels at this restored Beast. NB : Daniel : The Lion with the wings of the eagle clipped off – British Empire birthing America. The Bear : Russia (Three Ribs : Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia – the great famines and evil of Communism “arise and devour much flesh”). The Leopard and four heads and wings of a fowl : Catholicism seen through Italy, Spain, Portugal and France “mixing” with the darker skinned nations of the entire earth. Also represents the industries of the colonial epoch – ships, technology and firearms.

    Today, The Fourth Great Beast is fully birthed, on all continents and growing rapidly : Modern Civilisation :Concrete, Steel, Tunnels, Bridges, Skyscrapers, Oceanic Cabling, Factories, THE WHOLE reinforced concrete structure of post Second World War Construction.

    THE GOOD NEWS : The Church of The Wise Virgins INHERITS This Fourth Kingdom in The Millennium to Come.

    WARNING TO EVERYONE : Believe In JESUS; Worship The Lord; Be Baptized and LEARN and LIVE The Most Holy Bible. IF, (FOR ANY REASON) you refuse THIS, The OTHER Beast (Love of Money – Revelation 13 – Name, Number and Mark) WILL OWN YOU and when you DIE in your sins, DOWN TO HELL YOU WILL GO. This is TOO Horrific NOT to cause us to SHOUT THIS TO EVERYONE – Get Saved – GET SAVED – Just Believe – and REJECT “the Lost world MAN” AND Embrace The Holy Man From Heaven, WHO IS ALIVE Right Now !!! The Lord JESUS Christ. Only with HIS NAME, Sealed In your foreheads BY FAITH AND BAPTISM, can you HOPE to escape the End Time Deceit of the EVIL SPIRIT of the air – “satan” who HATES EVERYONE.

    You can easily start RIGHT HERE : http://www.constellation7.org/TheSimplePrayerOfFaith.htm

    God Bless ALL In Christ Alive – ESPECIALLY Those who TRULY BELIEVE – Amen and Amen

    † Mark 16:15-16 †
    And he said unto them,
    Go ye into all the world,
    and preach the gospel to every creature.
    He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved;
    but he that believeth not shall be damned.

    † 2 Timothy 4:5 †
    But watch thou in all things,
    endure afflictions,
    do the work of an evangelist,
    make full proof of thy ministry.
