purpose....The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao's leadership is one of the
most important and successful in history."

world order (Novus Ordo Seclorum) unless the Communist nations
are brought into the world order....' "

of the Bulletin....that those plans include the conversion of the United States into a
socialist nation....and the merger of that enslaved segment of mankind with other
Communist nations into a New World Order
That goal, under that very name -- originally written in bastardized Latin as novus ordo
seclorum -- has been envisioned by a Master Conspiracy for the past two hundred
years as the ultimate product of all its crimes against humanity, and of all its
subversive onslaughts against western civilization."
