  New Age: The Practical View   copied with permission from


  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.
