I was wondering if anybody would be willing to help me out with my dissertation research... I need 30-40 people to fill out my survey who have been or are currently involved in a non-violent political movement. I am looking at psychological values in such movements compared across several cultures. If you feel like this applies to you and have 15-20 minutes, and want to help out a poor graduate student I would be very appreciative. The website I am hosting it at is

Have You Been Changed by Travel?

My name is Garth Lean and I am a PhD student with the University of Western Sydney, Australia. I am currently investigating a phenomenon called ‘transformative travel’ with the hope of gathering information that can develop forms of tourism that bring about enduring social changes in the interests of sustainable development.

I have just launched a global online study and I'm currently seeking participants who feel they have been 'transformed by travel' to share their accounts on a simple and confidential form at my website Two types of participants are being sought:

1. The main focus of the research is on travellers who have been influenced by a travel experience to such an extent that they were inspired to change their values, attitudes and/or behaviours toward our natural and social environments upon their return home. This also includes individuals who already held strong views on these issues, but were motivated by travel to become more involved in addressing them, and/or the education and encouragement of others to get involved.

2. As a traveller’s life can be impacted in many other ways by their travel experiences, the study is also looking for participants who represent the diversity of all changes that can occur through travel. In other words, if somebody has been dramatically changed by travel in anyway, I want to hear from them!

How You Can Help
If you fit the descriptions above, it would be great if you could share your experiences by completing the simple form at Alternately, if you know somebody whose life has been dramatically altered by travel, please tell them about the study and invite them to visit the website.

If you are just interested in following the project, I have an update newsletter which you can sign up for on the website.

Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing your experiences.

Warm Regards,

Does Anyone Doubt There's a New World Order / Illuminati Conspiracy?


George W. Bush told us after September 11th that we “mustn’t tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories.” Anxious to be intolerant of something new, I thought I’d look into these outrageous claims. FOX News even suggested taking some time to peruse the internet’s fine “cess-pool of conspiracy theories,” so that’s what I did. However, what I found was a vast library of factual information following the movements of a very real conspiracy. The conspiracy is for world governance under the United Nations. The conspirators are a cabal of international bankers, businessmen, politicians, media personalities, Illuminati families, and secret society elites.

While this may surprise many and be simply unbelievable to others, that is because there has been a concerted effort, an info-war if you will, to keep the general population in willful ignorance regarding “outrageous conspiracy theories.” Branding this area of research as “theory” propagates it to the masses as unreliable and unimportant. However, just a tiny amount of investigation into subjects such as the JFK assassination, the Oklahoma City bombing, 9/11 or 7/7 show a massive amount of evidence against the “official” stories. I urge every one of you to perform your own research into the Illuminati and New World Order. Read the decades of thorough investigation into these subjects and learn why these “conspiracy nuts” are so adamant about their “outrageous theories.” You might just find out what all the buzz is about.


"It was not my intention to doubt that the doctrines of the Illuminati had
not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more fully
satisfied of this fact than I am."
-George Washington, 1782

"The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by
those who are not behind the scenes."
-Benjamin Disraeli, 1844

"Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me
privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the Field of
commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a
power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so
complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when
they speak in condemnation of it."
-Woodrow Wilson, 1913

"I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great
industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of
credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our
activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the
worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments
in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a
government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by
the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men."
-Woodrow Wilson, 1916

"From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, to those of
Trotsky, Bela Kun, Rosa Luxembourg, and Emma Goldman, this world wide
conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of
society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence and
impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played a definitely
recognizable role in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the
mainspring of every subversive movement during the nineteenth century, and
now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of
the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by
the hair of their heads, and have become practically the undisputed masters
of that enormous empire."
-Winston Churchill, 1920

"The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government which like a
giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation. At
the head is a small group of banking houses. This little coterie run our
government for their own selfish ends. It operates under cover of a
self-created screen, seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies,
schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public
-N.Y. Mayor, John Hylan, 1922

"The real truth of the matter is that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson"
-Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1933

"Today the path to total dictatorship in the United States can be laid by
strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by the Congress, the President, or
the people… outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating
within our government and political system, another body representing
another form of government, a bureaucratic elite which believes our
Constitution is outmoded and is sure that it is the winning side. All the
strange developments in the foreign policy agreements may be traced to this
group who are going to make us over to suit their pleasure. This political
action group has its own local political support organizations, its own
pressure groups, its own vested interests, its foothold within our
government, and its own propaganda apparatus."
-Senator William Jenner, 1954

"The invisible Money Power is working to control and enslave mankind. It
financed Communism, Fascism, Marxism, Zionism, Socialism. All of these are
directed to making the United States a member of a World Government."
-American Mercury Magazine, 1957

"The most powerful clique in these (CFR) groups have one objective in
common: they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the
national independence of the U.S. They want to end national boundaries and
racial and ethnic loyalties supposedly to increase business and ensure world
peace. What they strive for would inevitably lead to dictatorship and loss
of freedoms by the people. The CFR was founded for "the purpose of promoting
disarmament and submergence of U.S. sovereignty and national independence
into an all-powerful one-world government."
-Harpers, July l958

"The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society, and we are as a people, inherently and historically, oppossed to secret societies, secret oaths, and secret proceedings. For we are oppossed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence. It depends on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly effecient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published, its mistakes are buried, not headlined, its dissenters are silenced, not praised, no expendature is questioned, no secret is revealed... I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people.
-JFK, 1961

"The Trilateral Commission is intended to be the vehicle for multinational
consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of
the political government of the United States. The Trilateral Commission
represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate
the four centers of power political, monetary, intellectual and
ecclesiastical. What the Trilateral Commission intends is to create a
worldwide economic power superior to the political governments of the
nationstates involved. As managers and creators of the system ,they will
rule the future."
-U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater, l964

"The powers of financial capitalism had another 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 private meetings and conferences. The apex of the
system was the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a
private bank owned and controlled by the worlds' central banks which were
themselves private corporations. The growth of financial capitalism made
possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power
for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury of all other
economic groups."
-Professor Carroll Quigley, 1966

"The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world
government combining supercapitalism and Communism under the same tent, all
under their control.... Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there
is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and
incredibly evil in intent."
-Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976, killed in the Korean Airlines 747 that
was shot down by the Soviets

"We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine
and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and
respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have
been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been
subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work
is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world
government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world
bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in
past centuries."
-David Rockefeller, 1991 Trilateral Commission meeting

"George Bush has been surrounding himself with people who believe in
one-world government. They believe that the Soviet system and the American
system are converging. The vehicle to bring this about, is the United
Nations, the majority of whose 166 member states are socialist, atheist, and
-U.S. Ambassador David Funderburk, 1991

"It is the sacred principles enshrined in the United Nations charter to
which the American people will henceforth pledge their allegiance."
-George Bush, 1992

"[The New World Order] cannot happen without U.S. participation, as we are
the most significant single component. Yes, there will be a New World Order,
and it will force the United States to change it's perceptions."
-Henry Kissinger, 1994

"Some even believe we (Rockefeller family) are part of a secret cabal
working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my
family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around
the world to build a more integrated global political and economic
structure---one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty,
and I am proud of it."
-David Rockefeller, 2002 Autobiography


Educate yourself and awaken the sheeple around you. World Governments have
been hijacked by a cabal of globalists bent on one world government, world
bank, world currency, world military, and a micro-chipped population under
the United Nations. These people have many fronts which you all MUST
RESEARCH including: the Bilderberg group, the Committee of 300, the
Trilateral Commission, the Bohemian Grove, the Council on Foreign Relations,
Skull and Bones Society, the Free Masons, the Knights of Malta, the Illuminati, and the New World
