Gorbachev Calls for "New World Order"

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va., October 6, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Mikhail Gorbachev, the former Soviet leader who has promoted one-world government under the guise of "global governance", called Tuesday for a "new world order" that will be based on strong adherence to international law.

Gorbachev, speaking to the 91st annual Insurance Leadership Forum, said the new world order he is advancing should adhere to international law, rely heavily on the United Nations and not seek to impose the views of one country or a group of countries on others. He said the new order should be more stable, more just and more humane. It will not deny the cultural and ethnic diversity in the world, and it will not ignore environmental challenges, he said.

Taking aim at the United States, the only developed nation that has refused to surrender its sovereignty to the International Criminal Court, Gorbachev said, "World order does not mean world government," nor "can you build a new world order on the basis of preemptive strikes."

Gorbachev with his influential comrade Maurice Strong co-authored the infamous "Earth Charter" which they are hoping will guide a new world order based on "planetary ethics". The Charter reads like a new age ten commandments and includes language supporting abortion.
