Gold & Silver Report
The Congress of Vienna of 1815 envisioned Europe as a group of individual nation-states, each with standing armies, using treaties and diplomacy to maintain the balance of power. Statehood or nationalism was the choice of the day. Not so 100 years later.
The New World Order envisioned Europe at the Paris Peace Talks as a League of Nations, where a centralized international organization would have the sole role of settling disputes between individual nations; using a legal compendium of laws, treaties, and agreements, as opposed to open warfare.
President Woodrow Wilson is usually credited with the idea for the League. In his 14-point plan for peace after World War I, Wilson introduced the seed for an international organization of intergovernmental nations in his 14th point:
XIV. A general association of nations
"A general association of nations must be formed under specific covenants for the purpose of affording mutual guarantees of political independence and territorial integrity to great and small states alike." 
Nevertheless, the brain child for the founding of the League appears to have originated in England with the British Foreign Secretary Edward Grey. Both Sir Edward and Colonel Mandall House, who was the President's most trusted confident, advised Wilson to adopt the League, thereby creating an international governmental ruling body under the auspices of the League of Nations.
But there was much more to the origin of the League than first meets the eye. Lord Grey was educated in the early 1880's at Balliol College, Oxford. Balliol had a reputation as a college where future politicians and men of power studied and grew up side by side before going off to rule the world.
In 1918 Wilson commissioned House to put together a special team of academics to draw up a postwar plan of solutions for the world's problems. House was not an elected official of the US Government - he was simply a private non-elected friend of Wilson's whom Wilson confided in as his must trusted advisor and confident - on ALL matters of State.
Wilson appointed Colonel House to serve on the League of Nations Commission on Mandates with none other than Lord Milner.
Milner was a most interesting chap: he held many powerful positions in the British government. He played a leading role in the conquest of South Africa along with Cecil Rhodes as we shall shortly see.
In 1910 Milner, Cecil Rhodes, and Lionel Curtis formed the Roundtable Group. Curtis had a dream of a one world government, and he later founded the Royal Institute of International Affairs: the stated goal was to establish a New World Order.
Lord Milner was educated at King's College London and was a scholar at Balliol College, Oxford, from 1872 to 1876. Curtis also studied at Oxford.
Cecil Rhodes went to South Africa in 1870, to join his older brother, Herbert, in Natal. At the time his brother was working on a cotton farm. Early in the 1870's they made a claim in the Kimberley diamond fields.
Within just a few years time, Rhodes returned to England and entered Oxford University. It took Rhodes almost 10 years to graduate, as he kept taking trips back and forth to South Africa.
This fact is most extraordinary, and belies an underlying force of power, as who can come and go from college, let alone Oxford, for a period of ten years, whenever they so please? Why and how and by whom was such special treatment afforded to Rhodes?
Born into a fairly poor family, as Rhodes father was a minister, the two brothers lacked the needed capital to fund a working diamond mine. In 1888 Rhodes, backed by London bankers Nathaniel M. Rothschild and Sons, bought out all rival mining companies in the Kimberley region.
Recall that Rhodes came from a poor family and he had just left Oxford with nothing more than his diploma in hand. Rothschild was the true power behind Rhodes, and his conquest of Africa.
Rhodes consolidated all of the mines into De Beers Consolidated Mines. This gave Cecil control of the Cape economy and made him the most powerful man in South Africa. Rhodes was am imperialist and a racist, and he believed in the supremacy of the white Anglo-Saxon race over all other peoples. A few of his delusional quotes tell the story:
"I contend that we are the finest race in the world and the more of the world we inhabit the better it is for the human race. Just fancy those parts that are at present inhabited by the most despicable of human beings; what an alteration there would be in them if they were brought under Anglo-Saxon influence... Added to which the absorption of the greater portion of the world under our rule simply means the end of all wars."
"Why should we not form a secret society with but one object: the furtherance of the British Empire and the bringing of the whole uncivilized world under British rule for the recovery of the United States for making the Anglo-Saxon race but one Empire. What a dream, and yet it is probable, it is possible." 
Rhodes was influenced by John Ruskin's belief in British imperialism. While at Oxford he became friends with Rochefort Maguire, who later became a director of the British South Africa Company - whose greatest commodity for trade was human flesh: the slave trade.
In his will, Rhodes left his money for the establishment of a secret society whose purpose was to establish British rule throughout the world.
"To and for the establishment, promotion and development of a Secret Society, the true aim and object whereof shall be for the extension of British rule throughout the world, the perfecting of a system of emigration from the United Kingdom, and of colonization by British subjects of all lands where the means of livelihood are attainable by energy, labour and enterprise, and especially the occupation by British settlers of the entire Continent of Africa, the Holy Land, the Valley of the Euphrates, the Islands of Cyprus and Candia, the whole of South America, the Islands of the Pacific not heretofore possessed by Great Britain, the whole of the Malay Archipelago, the seaboard of China and Japan, the ultimate recovery of the United States of America as an integral part of the British Empire, the inauguration of a system of Colonial representation in the Imperial Parliament which may tend to weld together the disjointed members of the Empire and, finally, the foundation of so great a Power as to render wars impossible, and promote the best interests of humanity." 
Besides his funding of a secret society, Rhodes also set up the Rhodes scholarship at Oxford University. The underlying reason for the scholarship was to have specifically picked candidates educated and trained to spread Rhodes conquest of the world by British rule: by, as he believed, the white Anglo-Saxon superior race.
Milner graduated from Oxford in 1876. At first he worked in the private sector as a journalist and then editor. From there he transitioned into public affairs, as secretary for George Goschen, Chancellor of the Exchequer.
In February 1897 he was appointed High Commissioner for South Africa and Governor of the Cape Colony. It was now that Milner's true beliefs and talents were able to be expressed and put into action - to the detriment of the people of South Africa; and a windfall for Rhodes and those connected to him.
Besides diamonds, Rhodes was also involved in the gold mining business, founding Gold Fields of South Africa. Thousands of prospectors looking to strike it rich flocked to the Transvaal region of South Africa. This hoard of profit seeking individuals had no respect for the indigenous people of the region who they looked down upon as an inferior race, wreaking great harm and desolation to their land and way of life.
Milner himself was one of the worst of the bunch, a true racist at heart, he viewed the Afrikaners as subjects of the superior British White Anglo-Saxon race. The friction between the two groups kept escalating.
Milner was of the opinion that the only solution to the problem was British hegemony, to be had by armed conflict and the complete subjugation of the Afrikaners - in other words war.
Previous to this flare up between the Brits and the Afrikaners, Rhodes had organized an attack on the Transvaal in 1895 - the infamously bloody Jameson Raid. It was a disaster and a disgrace, forcing Rhodes to resign as Prime Minister of the Cape.
Under Milner's instigation full scale war broke out in 1899. By 1901 the two Boer states had been annexed as property of the British Empire. Milner was assigned the administration of the two states, causing him to resign the governorship of the Cape Colony, while still retaining the post of high commissioner.
During the war Lord Milner constructed concentration camps that incarerated 30,000 Boer women and children. Some records report more than 14,000 black South Africans died while imprisoned in his camps. He knew not the the chords of mercy.
Unfortunately for the South Africans, whose homes and lands were being taken from them by imperial minded terrorists - the great white Aryan Race of Brits won the war and had their way, at least for the time being. They have yet to pay the true cost that Charon will exact for their crossing. The ferryman's oblus is the final toll.
Milner was an imperialist, a racist, and an elitist - his delusional mind unfettered by any semblance of love for his fellow man, unless of course the individual was of the superior race. He believed in a pre-arranged design for society, a socialistic state controlled by the elite few who retained the understanding of scientific intelligence.
His own words describe himself best:
"I am a Nationalist and not a cosmopolitan .... I am a British (indeed primarily an English) Nationalist. If I am also an Imperialist, it is because the destiny of the English race, owing to its insular position and long supremacy at sea, has been to strike roots in different parts of the world. I am an Imperialist and not a Little Englander because I am a British Race Patriot ... The British State must follow the race, must comprehand it, wherever it settles in appreciable numbers as an independent community. If the swarms constantly being thrown off by the parent hive are lost to the State, the State is irreparably weakened. We cannot afford to part with so much of our best blood. We have already parted with much of it, to form the millions of another separate but fortunately friendly State. We cannot suffer a repetition of the process." 
The Kindergarten was composed of graduates from Oxford, all cut from the same swath of cloth, all forged from the same imperialistic, racist, elitist vision of Britain's dominance of the world. Following their leaders, Rhodes and Milner, they all set up shop in South Africa, helping Milner to spread British Rule: what they called an Imperial Federation of the British Empire.
Some of the most notable members included J. F. Perry, Geoffrey Dawson, Philip Kerr, Lionel Hichens, Robert H. Brand, Leo Amery, and Lionel Curtis.
It was Curtis that was most obsessed with not only British imperialism, and white Aryan race superiority - he also envisioned a one world government, run by the elite chosen few. Curtis was the ideological keystone and driving force behind the order - a warped and delusional intelligence, but a visionary nonetheless. Rhodes was the doer - Curtis the thinker.
Professor Carroll Quigley
Carroll Quigley, was a world renowned author and professor of world history at Georgetown University. He wrote several books in which he spoke of the Kindergarten's powerful influence on world history. Quigley saw them in the same shade that Rhode's delusional mind had wrought them forth in - an elite secrete society of the elect few who could bring great power and force to bare on a chosen subject.
"There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960's, to examine its papers and secret records.
I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies (notably to its belief that England was an Atlantic rather than a European Power and must be allied, or even federated, with the United States and must remain isolated from Europe), but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known." 
"The Rhodes Scholarships, established by the terms of Cecil Rhodes's seventh will, are known to everyone. What is not so widely known is that Rhodes in five previous wills left his fortune to form a secret society, which was to devote itself to the preservation and expansion of the British Empire. And what does not seem to be known to anyone is that this secret society was created by Rhodes and his principal trustee, Lord Milner, and continues to exist to this day. To be sure, this secret society is not a childish thing like the Ku Klux Klan, and it does not have any secret robes, secret handclasps, or secret passwords. It does not need any of these, since its members know each other intimately. It probably has no oaths of secrecy nor any formal procedure of initiation.
It does, however, exist and holds secret meetings, over which the senior member present presides. At various times since 1891, these meetings have been presided over by Rhodes, Lord Milner, Lord Selborne, Sir Patrick Duncan, Field Marshal Jan Smuts, Lord Lothian, and Lord Brand. They have been held in all the British Dominions, starting in South Africa about 1903; in various places in London, chiefly Piccadilly; at various colleges at Oxford, chiefly All Souls; and at many English country houses such as Tring Park, Blickling Hall, Cliveden, and others."
"No country that values its safety should allow what the Milner group accomplished in Britain, that is, that a small number of men should be able to wield such power in administration and politics, should be given almost complete control over the publication of the documents relating to their actions, should be able to exercise such influence over the avenues of information that create public opinion, and should be able to monopolize so completely the writing and teaching of the history of their own period." 
"The powers of financial capitalism had (a) far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world." 
The above quotes are from a man (Professor Quigley) who was considered to be one of the leading scholars of his day. He taught at Georgetown University and President Clinton (Rhodes Scholar) considered him to be his mentor.
Dr. Quigley was a consultant in American History for the Smithsonian Institution. He was a consultant several times to the Industrial College of the Armed Forces at Fort McNair. He was also a consultant to the Select House Committee on Astronautics and Space Exploration, which set up the present space agency (NASA).
Professor Quigley was not an unsubstantial source that could be dismissed without grave reservations founded on countervailing evidence. He knew from whence he spoke: and what he spoke was the truth - and took great courage and fortitude to expose to the light of day.
