The Dystopia of H.G. Wells
H.G. Wells (1866-1946) was one of the 20th century's biggest proponents, if not architects, of the what today is commonly known as the "New World Order", or the drive to establish a Communist-style one-world goverment . It's a theme he wrote about tirelessly over the course of his entire career, beginning with Anticipations (1901) and continuing on to the end of his life with works like Mind at the End of Its Tether (1945) and Marxism vs. Liberalism (published in 1945 and co-authored, perhaps alarmingly, with none other than Joseph Stalin himself).
Wells' most famous work in this non-fiction, pro-Communist genre was The Open Conspiracy: Blueprints for a World Revolution (1928), a self-described master plan for how to overthrow the United States government and inaugurate a One World "benevolent, utopian" dictatorship.

The network of close relationships that H.G. Wells maintained with other prominent British "One Worlders" (or, in some cases, "would be One Worlders" who later defected from the cause) like T. H. Huxley, Aldous Huxley, Julian Huxley, Bertrand Russell, the Fabians, George Bernard Shaw and George Orwell is a subject deserving of its own investigation, although I will not address it further in this post today other than to post a few comments from these "great, wise" men that should give the reader some insight into the sanity with which they were possessed:
- H.G. Wells writing in Anticipations: "The men of the New Republic (one world dictatorship) will not be squeamish either in facing or inflicting death ... They will have an ideal that will make killing worth the while; ... They will have the faith to kill ... If deterrent punishments are used at all in the code of the future the deterrent will (be) good scientifically caused pain."
- Bertrand Russell writing in The Impact of Science on Society: "War has been throughout history, the chief source of social cohesion."
- Bertrand Russell writing in The Impact of Science on Society: "I do not pretend that birth control is the only way in which population can be kept from increasing ... War ... has hitherto been disappointing in this respect, but perhaps bacteriological war may prove more effective. If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation, survivors could procreate without making the world too full."
- George Bernard Shaw, writing in The Intelligent Woman's Guide to Socialism and Capitalism: "If it were discovered that you had not character and industry enough to be worth all this trouble, you might possibly be executed in a kindly manner."
For instance, it's widely believed that it was H.G. Wells who authored Woodrow Wilson's "Fourteen Point Plan", which Wilson presented to a joint session of Congress on January 18, 1918 . Point Number 14 on Wilson's list was the creation of a "League of Nations" (forerunner to today's United Nations). As Richard Gamble puts it in Reassessing the Presidency, "the Fourteen Points were a direct effort to rearrange Europe, marking an unprecedented entry of the U.S. into European affairs and a further departure from America’s traditional foreign policy of nonentanglement and non-intervention."  Of course, uprooting America and destroying the vision that the Founders of this nation had is what Fabian Socailism and the New World Order is all about.
Stay tuned for more information about H.G. Wells and his world-famous novel, War of the Worlds, which has just been released this summer (2005) by Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise.
 In fact, Wells is the man who coined the term "New World Order," "War to End All Wars" and many other neologisms now part of our everday venecular.
