Using gradual incrementalism towards a New World Order

Tyranny Unmasked, Dr. Augustus O. Thomas

Doctor Augustus O. Thomas, of the World Federation of Education Association, on how to use gradualism to achieve a New World Order:

“If there are those who think we are to jump immediately into a new world order, actuated by complete understanding and brotherly love, they are doomed to disappointment. If we are ever to approach that time, it will be after patient and persistent effort of long duration. The present international situation of mistrust and fear can only be corrected by a formula of equal status, continuously applied, to every phase of international contacts, until the cobwebs of the old order are brushed out of the minds of the people of all lands.”
