In 1980, the Trilateral Observer published a lengthy essay entitled "Humanism: The Global Ideology." (Vol. 3, Issue 9)
According to the Observer, Humanism is a secular, non-theistic (atheistic) religion that believes man is capable of self-fulfillment, ethical conduct and salvation without supernatural intervention.
Patrick Wood, author of Technocracy Rising, writes that Humanism today is being “taught” throughout the business world by the Aspen Institute, particularly to the multinational corporation community:
" The major financiers of Aspen also are the major financiers of Trilateralism, and no less than seven members of the Trilateral Commission also serve at the Aspen Institute."
"The Aspen Institute was founded in 1949 by Professor Giuseppe Borgese, Chancellor Robert M. Hutchins (both of University of Chicago) and Walter Paepcke, a Chicago businessman. In 1957, Robert O. Anderson became chairman, and has been its guiding force ever since. In 1969, chairmanship switched to Joseph E. Slater, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and formerly of the Ford Foundation."
"The two leading foundations contributing to Aspen are Atlantic-Richfield (ARCO) and the Rockefeller Foundation."
"Moreover, the largest single institutional shareholder in ARCO is Chase Manhattan (4.5%) and the largest individual shareholder is Robert O. Anderson, who is also on the board of directors of Chase Manhattan Bank."
"The Markle Foundation (a substantial Aspen backer) is less well known but leads us back to New York banks — in this case to the Morgan Guarantee group. Markle Foundation chairman is Charles F. Biddle, also chairman of the credit policy group of Morgan Guarantee Trust. Walter H. Page is president of Morgan Guarantee Trust and president of J.P. Morgan. Another director, William M. Rees, is a director of First National City Bank."
"In short, it seems the private financing for the Aspen Institute comes from the international banks in New York City, and more specifically, from foundations controlled by Rockefeller and Morgan interests." (Global Religion for Global Governance, Patrick Wood)
Humanism is an ancient pagan and mystical pantheist creed. Its materialistic roots,
"....go back to at least fifth century B.C. to the Greek philosopher Protagoras who said, 'Man is the measure of all things.' During the period of the Enlightenment, philosophers such as Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778), Immanuel Kant (1724-1804), Georg Hegel (1770-1831) and slightly later Karl Marx (1818-1883), developed humanistic doctrines that have worked their way into the 20th century in the form of Humanism, Marxism, Socialism, Communism, Collectivism and Rationalism." (Global Religion For Global Governance, Patrick Wood, technocracy.news)
All forms of Humanism are promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against our Heavenly Father that emerged out of the Renaissance giving birth to an occult intelligentsia, open intercourse with spirits, astral plane travels, totalitarian aspirations, subjectivism (moral relativism), and Illuminism, an ancient occult mystery religion that teaches that man,
"...can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself." (New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies," William Still, p. 27)
As the Observer article states, Marxist Communism is a humanistic doctrine; a twisted branch from the godless tree of Humanism. In a probing analysis of Marxist Communism, early conservative intellectual Frank Meyer described it as the state form taken by a materialist pagan faith,
"...determined to rule the world" Communism is the "final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement, pp. 251-252)
Communism is a godless, religiously monist (collectivist), subjectivist, philosophically Gnostic pagan and Eastern-oriented pantheist form of heretical Jewish elements and heretical Protestant liberalism's evolutionary cosmogony, a mystical, upside-down, anti-creation account grounded in a chiliastic-evolutionary, apocalyptic proclamation of a coming new order based in belief in the inevitability of evolutionary progress from molecule to sea-weed, reptile, ape, hominid, and finally god-man and in the perfectibility of this fallen world.
Chiliasm in Greek means 'thousand years' and is primarily a godless version of the millennial belief expressed in some Christian denominations that there will be a paradise on earth where Christ will reign for a thousand years prior to the final judgment and future eternal state.
The contemporary chiliastic-evolutionary movement is Technocracy, an animistic, Eastern-oriented worldview grounded in mereological nihilism. Mereological nihilism posits that since self-evolved matter (i.e., the Void, Sirius, Mind of the Universe or Energy Field) is really energy (which may or may not be divine) then the smallest building blocks (atoms) that make up everything are really energy, making the material world an illusion and idolatrous Technocrats worshippers of divine energy in pursuit of godlike powers and immortality.
Technocracy is not merely an ideology but rather a wholesale rejection of the only true God and a turning back to ancient dehumanizing pagan and pantheist creeds from the time of Babylon, and if New Age historians are correct in their conclusions, these creeds reach back through the mists of time to the pre-flood world.
