World Peace Through World Law
by Scott the aussie
'World Peace Through World Law' is a phrase which has become all to common in the minds of many of those who believe they know what is best for the rest of the world. 'World Peace Through World Law' is the justification for the establishment of an all powerful totalitarian world government.
The mention of 'world government' is usually too strong a term to mention in the mainstream sphere of media and schools yet it has been discussed time and time again in the halls of government, courts and think tank meetings and journals.
'World Government - Shall Britain Participate' was released by the British American Council for World Government Organisation back in 1944. This may sound like an obscure document to many unschooled in the world government agenda until one is to check the membership list of The British American Council and discovers no less than twenty members of parliament, noted individuals such as the author H.G. Wells, Lt.-Col F.R.S. Balfour and Field Marshal W. R. Birdwood among many other famous names.
World government was openly stressed and supported as the goal for creating the United Nations by Harry Truman in the preface of 'Our Foreign Policy, Department of State Publication 5972, General Foreign Policy Series 26' in September of 1950. The document went into great detail in describing how the american people wanted world government (a blatant lie) and then on how to achieve it through the creation of international institutions.
World government has been discussed openly and frequently in the parliaments and congresses of the varied nations of the world, at the various United Nations Conventions and world government as a goal is specifically mentioned in official documents of the United States government, the British government and the Australian government.
It is important to realise how open the agenda actually is and how simple it is to gain the primary evidence for those willing to do the work. People when presented with documented court cases and government policy can no longer be excused of ignorance as they can read them for themselves. No exaggeration or hype is needed, just the facts. The truth is a very powerful tool indeed!

WORLD PEACE THROUGH WORLD LAW -- (Extensions of Remarks - July 11, 2006)
SPEECH OF HON. CHARLES B. RANGEL
OF NEW YORK
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
TUESDAY, JULY 11, 2006
* Mr. RANGEL. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to a truly remarkable man, Mr. Louis B. Sohn passionate supporter of the United Nations, Mr. Sohn has made a significant mark on both our country and the world . On June 7 at his home in Falls Church, Virginia, we lost Mr. Sohn to complications of a stroke. He was 92 years old.
* Born March 1, 1914, right at the start of World War I, in Lwow, Poland, Louis showed tremendous passion right from the beginning. He earned both his undergraduate and law degrees from John Casimir University. A mere two weeks before the invasion of Poland during World War II, a Harvard law professor who had been impressed by Mr. Sohn's treatises, invited him to be a research fellow at Harvard School of Law. Soon after his arrival, he met Betty Mayo, who became his wife and is now his only survivor.
* Serving as an assistant to Manley O. Hudson, a Harvard Law professor and a judge on the Permanent Court of International Justice at the Hague, Mr. Sohn traveled to San Francisco for the United Nations charter conference. With his help, the International Court of Justice was established. Then when Mr. Hudson retired as the Bemis Professor of International Law at Harvard, Louis Sohn was awarded the honor.
* Professor Sohn was well known for his book ``World Peace Through World Law,'' which he co-authored with Grenville Clark, a prominent Wall Street attorney. Their book delved into various proposals to transform the U.N. into a world government .
* Throughout his 50 year career in the field of law, which culminated at the University of Georgia School of Law, Professor Sohn was a champion for disarmament and the creation of a permanent U.N. peace force. He hoped that through such a peace force, the U.N. could use their military budget alternatively to relieve poverty. Mr. Sohn commendably spent his life working hard for a more powerful United Nations.
* I enter into the RECORD an article published in the New York Times on June 23, 2006 titled ``Louis B. Sohn, Passionate Supporter of the U.N., Dies at 92.'' The article provides a more in depth commentary of Professor Sohn's esteemed accomplishments. He is a truly remarkable man who has left an everlasting imprint on society. We must keep his legacy alive and continue to fight for disarmament and human rights. [From the New York Times, June 23, 2006]
LOUIS B. SOHN, PASSIONATE SUPPORTER OF THE U.N., DIES AT 92
(By Dennis Hevesi)
Louis B. Sohn, a professor of international law who helped draft parts of the United Nations Charter in 1945 and was a leader in subsequent efforts to turn the United Nations into a true world government , died on June 7 at his home in Falls Church, Va. He was 92.

The cause was complications of a stroke, said Paige Otwell, a friend.
For nearly 50 years, while at the Harvard School of Law and then the University of Georgia School of Law, Professor Sohn served on commissions and organized conferences around the world , championing disarmament, human rights and increased powers for the United Nations.
He called for the creation of a permanent United Nations peace force. He wanted nations with nuclear arsenals to hand them over to the United Nations and use their military budgets for relieving poverty. He campaigned to have the 1948 United Nations Declaration of Human Rights accepted as a legally binding document, rather than a statement of principles. In 1968, the General Assembly adopted that premise.
Those proposals and others were seized upon by American isolationists to attack the United Nations. Professor Sohn called them ``the minimum requirements for peace, not a utopian scheme for a perfect world community.''
Louis Bruno Sohn was born on March 1, 1914, in what was then Lwow, now Lviv, then part of Poland but now in Ukraine. He graduated from John Casimir University there and then earned a law degree in 1939.
Professor Sohn's parents, Isaak and Fredericka Sohn, were doctors. His father, taken to an internment camp after the invasion of Poland, barely survived World War II. His mother died of pneumonia that first winter.
Two weeks before the invasion, at the invitation of a Harvard law professor who read one of his legal treatises, Professor Sohn had boarded a ship to the United States to become a research fellow. In 1941, he married Betty Mayo, a Radcliffe student; she is his only survivor.
At Harvard, he became an assistant to Manley O. Hudson, a judge on the Permanent Court of International Justice at the Hague, which was established by the League of Nations but suspended during the war. Judge Hudson was the Bemis Professor of International Law at Harvard. Professor Sohn succeeded to the Bemis chair in 1961 and held it until 1981.
In the summer of 1945, Judge Hudson and his assistant traveled to San Francisco for the United Nations charter conference. There, they helped draft the statute establishing the International Court of Justice, or World Court, as the successor to the Permanent Court of International Justice.
In an interview in 1977, Professor Sohn recalled how Harvard had asked him to teach a course on the United Nations after his return from the charter conference, ``because nobody else would teach anything so crazy.''
In 1958, Professor Sohn was a co-author, with Grenville Clark, of ``World Peace Through World Law'' (Harvard University Press), which examined proposals to transform the United Nations into a world government . The book envisioned a time when the United Nations budget, then $55 million, would surpass $35 billion, with $25 billion set aside to mitigate ``the worst economic disparities between nations.''
The authors also called for the elimination of all armaments in 12 years and envisioned that the United Nations would then have a monopoly on military force and would maintain a peace force of 400,000 soldiers.
In 1967, Professor Sohn wrote a report for a committee of international law experts, urging the United Nations to study the threat to individual freedom posed by computers, eavesdropping devices and genetic engineering. The report, submitted to the United Nations as part of the 20th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, said the concept of national data banks ``raises the specter of a government which knows all.''
"Arrangements have to be devised,'' it said, ``to control the precious few who run the machines, and on whose wisdom and impartiality the fate of mankind may depend.''
In 1977, Professor Sohn was a delegate to a United Nations-sponsored conference that drafted the Convention on the Law of the Sea, which the General Assembly adopted in 1982.
In 1981, after 35 years at Harvard, Professor Sohn accepted an invitation from Dean Rusk, who had been secretary of state under President John F. Kennedy, to join him in teaching international law at the University of Georgia.
