Now there is very little public opposition to government policies. Young people, especially, are dispirited by the employment situation today and are afraid to be seen as ‘stirrers’ in case it causes problems for them getting a job. And workers are hardly likely to fight for better conditions when millions of others are waiting to take their jobs. In other words, what better time to bring in the ‘New World Order’ than when the economy is in disarray and the people are unable to protest against it? This nexus needs to be broken if the NWO agenda is to be successfully opposed.
