  Among the various mechanisms and means devised over the years as a vehicle
for world government, the latest is the New Age Movement.  While claiming to
be the “new spirituality, ” the New Age only offers the same, worn-out old
cliches about peace, love , higher selves, and lower living that have
accompanied malcontents from Plato until now.

    Redistributing the wealth of others may beat working productively, but
such dreams do not happen naturally; they must be imposed from the top
downward.  This  oppression from above is the real momentum behind New Age
“flowers.”

  DOCUMENTATION; The New American, October 12, 1987

    …Ideologically, those involved in the New Age Movement are invariably to
the left in the political spectrum.

    …Though its roots go back several centuries, the New Age Movement, with
its heavy leftist tilt, is clearly linked to the radicalism of the 1960’s.

  …The New Age Movement is basically collectivist in its politics. 

(New Ager Marilyn) Ferguson quotes political scientist Melvin Gurtov
approvingly: “The new person creates the new collectivity and what the new
collectivity creates — is — the new politics.”…  On the issues of foreign
policy and national security, the New Age Movement lines up squarely with the
Soviet-dominated peace movement ….  Finally, the New Age Movement is
strongly committed to globalism.  Throughout the movement’s literature there
is hostility toward nationalism and an emphasis on  “planetary consciousness.”

  Marilyn Ferguson declares: “All countries are economically and ecologically
involved with each other, politically enmeshed.  The old gods of isolationism
and nationalism are tumbling,  artifacts like the stone deities of Easter
Island.”….Futurist Alvin  Toffler also envisions his “new civilization” as a
global one:”…

    This consciousness is shared by multinational executives, long-haired
environmental campaigners, financiers, revolutionaries, intellectuals, poets,
and painters, not to mention members of the Trilateral Commission …  And its
appearance is seen as an evolutionary necessity — a step  closer to a “cosmic
consciousness” that would embrace the heavens as well.” ..  Many in the New
Age Movement see the United Nations as the foundation of such a new global
order …

    The New Age Movement is a significant political force that could determine
the future.  Freedom-loving Americans should not take lightly the implications
of the following statement by Tom Hayden: “Those who filled the streets in the
60’s may yet fill the halls of government in the 80’s and if we do, I don’t
believe we will forget our
roots.”

  Among the warnings to be found in the Bible is I Thessalonians 5:3: ” For
when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon
them …” This is the theme of the New Age.  But, as we have seen, the  New
Age is merely “old tyranny, ” dressed-up in “new clothes.” Let Christians bear
in mind that we know a tree by its fruit. Apart from Christ Jesus, the Prince
of Peace, no true peace will be found.
