Informative account of how globalism was spawned by English socialism (or Ingsoc per Orwell's Nineteen Eight-Four). The point of origin was 19th century British imperialism which Victorian administrators projected world dominion as inevitable. The media was on board early promoting a 'Parliament of man' (Tennyson, 1842) under the rule of a 'Greater Britain' (NYT, 1897) composed of the UK, US, and other English-speaking countries.
Higher ed joined in as well. Oxford professor John Ruskin inspired generations of bureaucrats with his 'Reign or Die' lecture of 1870. He argued that the British Empire should conquer barbarous peoples and spread what amounted to socialist values across the globe. It should be noted that Ruskin called himself a Communist before Marx completed his seminal Das Kapital work.
Backed by the legitimacy of the professoriate, British statesman such as Cecil Rhodes and Alfred Miner lead the country's leadership down the globalization path. Miner established 'Round Table' groups to promote a worldwide federation of English-speaking countries. In each target country, local leaders were recruited as 'Judas goats' to lead their countries to the slaughter of WWI. The 'War that Will End War,' wrote novelist H.G. Wells in 1914, would result "in a Peace League that will control the globe." Wells, by the way, was among British mediates recruited by Britain's War Propaganda Bureau (a.k.a. Wellington House) as a secret operative.
British leaders knew that the Peace League would never come about without US support. Thus, British intelligence worked to penetrate the Wilson White House--an endeavor that proved easy. Among their top recruits was Edward House, a close advisor to the president with generational ties to England. House worked with British spies, including US station chief for the SIS Sir William Wiseman, to influence US policy toward participation in WWI and assembling the subsequent Peace League. British Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey coined the term 'League of Nations' that, through the persuasive influence of House, Wilson proposed to the world.
It should be plain, then, that counter to narrative of popular history, President Wilson was not the father of globalism. Instead, he was merely a high profile mouthpiece for an idea that had been nearly a century in the making.
Following WWI, House and Wiseman guided Wilson's every move at the 1919 Paris Peace Conference. To the disdain of British globalists, however, Wilson could not persuade the US Senate to vote in favor of the League of Nations. Consequently, globalist sympathizers in the UK and US governments established groups, such as the US Council on Foreign Relations, to coordinate policy in a manner that kept the torch burning.
As we now know, Wells' War that Would End War didn't do the trick. In midst of WWII, Winston Churchill picked up the torch of globalism, calling for a 'special relationship' between US and UK to form a 'world organization' that prevent another world war. The United Nations was subsequently founded in 1945.
But how could there be peace without tools for war that would keep the peace? Churchill argued that yet another English-speaking groups authorized to make war was necessary to enforce the globalist vision. Thus, NATO in 1949.
And so became the British foundation for globalism foreseen by Orwell and in play today.
