~~By James J. Fire
And now the third part of this article in the continuing series of TTUF Profiles on various “Radicals and their worldviews that rule America from the grave” based primarily on Brannon Howse’s book of the same name, is here for your review.
Imagine if a General was about to receive some military Intel on positions and strengths of his enemy, but declined it as being “unnecessary, negative, non-productive and “hurtful to the cause” and wanted rather to focus on the positive, the relevant, and “that which builds up”. How long do you think it would be before that General was replaced with another that rightly perceived such information as needful in order to wage a successful campaign against the enemy?
In our supreme struggle against the subtle enemy of the church, we are not to be “ignorant of his devices” 2 Cor. 2:10-11 whether he chooses to use unforgiveness and bitterness or spiritual leaven (unbiblical teaching – such as the sort our children and students here in America are inundated with in our public indoctrination centers (and yes, it is spiritual!) or public schools as they are more commonly known) to cause division in the body of Christ.
Certainly there can be no greater division or more accurately, departure from the Word of God (2 Tim. 3:1-7; 1 Tim 4:1) than when scores of students numbering in the hundreds of thousands across our nation leave the faith in favor of a global Humanist, Evolutionary worldview!
~This is a primary reason why we here at TTUF are pursuing the exposure of these radicals (Eph. 5:11); they represent the means of Satan’s tactics and overall global plan as his mouthpieces, spreading his deceptions and lies and infesting the minds of our youth. Personally, I feel that I’m a bit ‘late in the game’ in all of this, but thankfully there have been those like Brannon Howse (Grave Influences), Berit Kjos (Brave New Schools) and Johanna Michaelson (Like Lambs to the Slaughter) that have sounded the alarm long ago (yet why are so few alarmed?). I’m little more than an ‘echo’ in repeating and resounding these vital issues, but am willing to be so if it means reaching those who may not have read these (and other) books or perhaps saw no urgent need to do so.
So now that we have looked at John Dewey in part one, and Benjamin Bloom in part two, we now turn our attention to Robert Muller in this third part. Mr. Howse did not include Mr. Muller as one of his 21 Radicals, but I do so here as a supplementation to what he has already written in Grave Influences because Mr. Muller has most certainly exerted a profound influence on students, both here in America and abroad.
Let us begin by looking at a biography of this prolific man:
“Robert Muller - born in Belgium, 1923 and raised in the Alsace-Lorraine region in France, he experienced constant political and cultural turmoil during his youth. Often as a child, Robert Muller would look out of his window at the border he could not cross and long for the day when he would no longer have to observe the imaginary line.
“Robert Muller knew the horrors of World War II, of being a refugee, of Nazi occupation and imprisonment; he was also a member of the French Resistance. After the war he returned home and earned a Doctorate of Law from the University of Strasbourg. In 1948 he entered and won an essay contest on how to govern the world, the prize of which was an internship at the newly created United Nations.
“Dr. Muller devoted the next 40 years of his life behind the scenes at the United Nations focusing his energies on world peace. He rose through the ranks at the UN to the official position of Assistant-Secretary-General. He has been called the ‘Philosopher’ and ‘Prophet of Hope’ of the United Nations (interesting appellations!). Robert Muller is a deeply spiritual person. From his vantage point of a top level global states-person he has seen a strong connection between spirituality and the political/cultural scene.

The World Core Cirriculum
~~ end of update
“Robert Muller created a ‘World Core Curriculum’ and is known throughout the world as the ‘father of global education.’ There are 29 Robert Muller schools (as of the time of this writing) around the world with more being established each year. The ‘World Core Curriculum’ earned him the UNESCO Peace Education Prize in 1989. Dr. Muller (based on this work) has recently drawn up a ‘Framework for World Media Coverage’ as a public service, as well as a ‘Framework for Planetary and Cosmic Consciousness’ and a ‘Framework for the Arts and Culture.’
“In active ‘retirement,’ Dr. Muller was Chancellor of the University for Peace created by the United Nations in demilitarized Costa Rica. He is in great demand to make speeches to educational, environmental, spiritual and political conferences around the world. Dr. Muller concentrates his efforts on promoting greater human understanding and global awareness. He was recently the recipient of the Albert Schweitzer International Prize for the Humanities and the Eleanor Roosevelt Man of Vision Award.
“Dr. Muller lives most of the year at his small farm overlooking the University of Peace, on a sacred indigenous hill, Mt. Rasur, from which according to indigenous prophecy, a civilization of peace will extend to the entire world (Dan. 8:25; 1 Thess. 5:3). His traditional Costa Rican house is located just up the hill from the Peace Monument of the University. In addition to his duties at the University, he devotes time to his writings and is an internationally acclaimed, multi-lingual speaker and author of fourteen books published in various languages. He has published his Testament to the UN as well as his plans and dreams for a peaceful, happy world.”
Robert Muller’s Biography
Far from being merely a political entity, the UN of which Muller had a predominant hand in forming and developing, is very much a spiritual/religious entity that reflects the values of its former Assistant Secretary General; his dream lives on in the minds and hearts of UN members, its workers and followers of Muller himself:
Robert Muller's 7000 Ideas and the University for Peace
His dream seems to parallel, if not be inspired by “God’s Dream” an idea that is heavily promoted by New Agers and Emergent Leaders alike, that is, “to bring heaven to earth”; an idea which intimates that we are not to wait around for God to establish His kingdom (Dan. 2:34, 45), but must be active participants in its erection. Since Muller is by his own admission a “deeply spiritual man” one must ask where he obtained his spirituality from. This we shall look into!
My Dream 2000
by Robert Muller
That on 1 January 2000
The whole world will stand still
In prayer, awe and gratitude
For our beautiful, heavenly Earth
And for the miracle of human life.
That young and old, rich and poor,
Black and white,
Peoples from North and South,
From East and West,
From all beliefs and cultures
Will join their hands, minds and hearts
In an unprecedented, universal
Bimillennium Celebration of Life.
That the year 2000
Will be declared World Year of Thanksgiving
By the United Nations.
That during the year 2000
Innumerable celebrations and events
Will take place all over the globe
To gauge the long road covered by humanity
To study our mistakes
And to plan the feats
Still to be accomplished
For the full flowering of the human race
In peace, justice and happiness.
That the few remaining years
To the Bimillennium
Will be devoted by all humans, nations and institutions
To unparalleled thinking, action,
Determination and love
To solve our remaining problems
And to achieve
A peaceful, united human family on Earth.
That the third millennium
Will be declared
Humanity's First Millennium of Peace.
In his “Spirituality in World Affairs” Robert Muller lists ten objectives that would promote global spirituality among the nations, with the UN as well as the URO, leading the way. These ten objectives have either been fulfilled or nearly so, since Muller wrote this article thirteen years ago. Here are those ten objectives:
1. At the 1993 World Parliament of Religions in Chicago, I proposed the creation of a United Nations "World Spirituality Agency," and later during the 50th anniversary of the UN in San Francisco, in 1995, I proposed the creation of a United Religions Organization similar to the United Nations Organization.
2. At the World Parliament of Religions I also recommended that the Parliament should not wait another hundred years to reconvene, but should do so before our entry into the next century and millennium in the year 2000. This was adopted. I have now been invited to address the Parliament's session in Capetown, South Africa in December 1999. I will ask for a world-wide spiritual Renaissance and offer a comprehensive detailed plan for that.
3. On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the UN, I published My Testament to the UN with an important chapter on the UN and spirituality, underlying the spirituality in a world of action of Secretaries Dag Hammerskjold and U Thant.
4. I could not attend the second meeting of the United Religions Initiative in San Francisco in 1997, but submitted a paper on the "The State of the World on Earth Day 2013, A Vision of the Future of Inter-Religious Cooperation."
5. I have finished writing my fourth volume of 2000 Ideas for a Better World as a count-up to the Year 2000. In it I request that spirituality should become priority number one of humanity.
6. My 1986 recommendation that the UN should proclaim the year 2000 "International Year of Thanksgiving" has been approved by the UN Economic and Social Council and has been confirmed by the current General Assembly of the UN.
7. The Global Dialogue Institute acted upon my idea to establish a "World Commission on Global Thought and Spirituality for the 21st Century," in August of 1998, to fill an important gap in the series of World Commissions already held to guide our path into the next millennium.
8. As a member of the Club of Budapest on Planetary Consciousness created in 1996, I am advocating the need for a cosmic, divine, spiritual consciousness.
9. I continue as an active member of the canonization of Robert Schuman, my compatriot from Alsace Lorriane, who was a political saint and achieved peace between France and Germany and fourteen other European countries by creating a European Union. He never saw it completed. I went to his tomb to report it to him.
10. I am planning with the Thomas Merton Foundation on Spirituality and Politics a millennium conference. They found a note by him envisioning such a conference of world leaders to ask the question: "How can we practice contemplation in a world of action?" At that meeting, I will advocate how this is possible by practicing, as I do, the constant Presence of God.
All ten objectives are highly relevant within the context of a global spirituality, but I find the last three most interesting.
Muller’s advocating the need for a cosmic, divine, spiritual consciousness as a member of the Club of Budapest for Planetary Consciousness reveals his perspective of a connection between the political and the spiritual.
In connection with a shared spirituality with Robert Muller, Robert Schuman was credited by his UN partner to have achieved peace … by creating a European Union. We see another undeniable connection between a global spirituality and an endeavor towards global government (as represented by the creation of the E.U. and even the U.N. itself).
Peace Day Tribute to Robert Muller
He seems like a kind, grandfatherly sort who only wants “happiness, smiles” and “love” for the people of the world, doesn’t he? And we can empathize deeply with people such as Mr. Muller who suffered terribly by the ravages and cruelty of war. Such experiences make his passion for peace quite understandable, even commendable.
However, how can this seeming ‘heaven on earth’ come about without the heavenly King Who alone has the power to establish that heavenly kingdom that will reign not only overtly, but inwardly in the hearts of people, but nonetheless cannot exist in those hearts that are opposed to the King and His Word and whose heart condition (of evil) can only promise further corruption, even violence in this fallen world? Such is the premise of hopelessness to unregenerate humankind. Such a spiritual, peaceful union of the world as dreamed of by Muller and others will only come about by alternative spiritual means:
Muller professed affection for Brother Lawrence and his “Practicing the Presence of God” which he himself practices and who shares a common vision with Thomas Merton, Trappist monk and contemplative prayer/spirituality advocate and leader. Of course contemplative prayer and spirituality is endorsed by such anchors as Richard Foster, Dallas Williard and most other Emergent Church leaders and movements. See the following article on The RED PILL Consortium for more of this:
Beware of Prayer of the Contemplative Kind-Part2
In Ray Yungen's book, A Time of Departing, he said, "What Martin Luther King was to the civil rights movement and what Henry Ford was to the automobile, Thomas Merton is to contemplative prayer."
"...Thomas Merton has influenced the Christian mystical movement more than any person of recent decades [and defined it as:] '... a glorious destiny to be a member of the human race ... and I now realize what we all are... If only they [people] could all see themselves as the really are...I suppose the big problem would be that we would fall down and worship each other... At the center of our being is a point of nothingness which is untouched by sin and by illusions, a point of pure truth... This little point... is the pure glory of God in us. It’s in everybody."
“Mr. Yungen aptly tracks the spiritual trail by which Contemplative Prayer is making headway into the evangelical church:
’From India (guru's and swamis) to Alexandria (the Gnostics), to the desert fathers (John of the Cross, St. Teresa of Avila, etc), to Thomas Merton..." to Richard Foster and more recently through many other contemporary leaders in Evangelical Christianity, to you and I.’”
You might ask, ‘Why am I getting into all of this spirituality when I’m supposed to be writing about ‘global educrats’?’ The answer is quite simple. Along with Humanism, Socialism, Evolution, and other primary schools of a secular worldview, there is this spiritual aspect and worldview that’s being blended in with all the rest, the sum total of which denies and replaces a biblical worldview in the minds and hearts of the students.
Understanding this bias, we can look at UNESCO, which was impacted greatly by Muller, and see how its objectives are anything but friendly to biblical Christianity:
“UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, is a specialized agency of the United Nations system.
The organization was created more than a half century ago, with the mission to build the defenses of peace in the minds of men. Its Constitution states that:
“Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defenses of peace must be constructed.
The Constitution was adopted by the London Conference in November 1945, and entered into effect on the 4th of November 1946 when 20 states had deposited instruments of acceptance.
“UNESCO currently has 188 Member States (as of 31 December 2000).
The main objective of UNESCO is to contribute to peace and security in the world by promoting collaboration among nations through education, science, culture and communication in order to further universal respect for justice and the rule of law and for the human rights and fundamental freedoms which are affirmed for the peoples of the world, without distinction of race, sex, language or religion.
“To fulfill its mandate, UNESCO performs five principal functions:
What forms of education, science, culture and communication for tomorrow's world?
“The advancement, transfer and sharing of knowledge:
Relying primarily on research, training and teaching activities.
The preparation and adoption of international instruments and statutory recommendations.
Provided to Member States for their development policies and projects in the form of "technical co-operation".
“Exchange of specialized information.”
This premise of peace is predicated on the idea that all religions (as well as governments) share a united vision for and about mankind which is diametrically opposed to what the Bible states. Merton and others in political, Humanist and religious circles see mankind as anywhere from ‘basically good’ to having “[a]t the center of our being … a point of nothingness which is untouched by sin and by illusions, a point of pure truth... This little point... is the pure glory of God in us. It’s in everybody.”
“Former UN Secretary-General U Thant who was a teacher and master to me, often had this comment: ‘Robert (Muller), the world will not change and find peace, if there is not a new education.’ He was entirely right.
“History will prove that Gloria Crook, U Thant and the United Nations were right. The quicker all educators and media will listen to them, the quicker we will get out of the present confusion and find a new, promising way of our progress and evolution. Please, all teachers of the world, listen to them.”
UNESCO ratified and implemented something called the World Core Curriculum, created by Robert Muller himself, albeit with significant influence and inspiration from his heroes like Jesuit priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin; and Alice Bailey of the Theosophical Society, itself a source of ‘specialized information’.
“As we have already seen, Robert Muller believes in the divinity of humanity and ‘was deeply influenced’ by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin*, a Jesuit priest who taught that all of humanity would eventually meld into one super-being through the coming of the Cosmic Christ (read that, anti-Christ, the Beast of Revelation, chapter 13, et. Al.).
[* de Chardin is the one whom Leonard Sweet (Emergent Church advocate and teacher) claimed was the “Chrisitan voice of the 20th century”!]
“Muller’s World Curriculum framework includes teaching on “Spiritual exercises of interiority, meditation prayer, communication with the universe, eternity and God.” These spiritual exercises, meditation, and mystic communication are marks of New Age spirituality.
“According to United Nations Online, “The scope of the curriculum will always be the same; to allow the student to see himself truly, as an integral part of the Cosmos…At the moment, it seems the only limitation will be the imagination of the Cosmic-minded and spiritually oriented teaching staff.”
“And we cannot forget what the World Core Curriculum itself tells us about Muller's source of inspiration:
The underlying philosophy upon which The Robert Muller School is based will be found in the teachings set forth in the books of Alice A. Bailey by the Tibetan Teacher of Djwhal Khul*...and the teaching of Morya as given in the Agni Yoga series books.
* A demonic spirit channeled by Bailey. Its shocking when one realizes that our public school system is increasingly endorsing a Curriculum based on the ‘doctrines of devils’ (1 TIM 4:1)!
“Alice Bailey (1880-1949) was a New Age leader and a channel for Djwhal Khul, a demon disguised as a master of wisdom. Bailey's Luciferian channeled messages from Djwhal Khul are published through her organization, the Lucis Trust Association. Lucis Trust is a United Nations-affiliated NGO. Lucis Trust gained consultative status with the UN in 1989.”
Taken from Robert Muller’s Global Education article on the Amazing Discoveries web site.
Berit Kjos has done a phenomenal job in documenting the infiltration of these Global Educrats and their New Spirituality counterparts (many times represented by the same people) in her book, Brave New Schools. The following are excerpts from her web site in an article entitled:The International Agenda where she quotes from chapter two of her book:
"Multicultural education...strives to integrate multi-ethnic and global perspectives," wrote Christine Bennet in Comprehensive Multicultural Education, a popular textbook for student teachers. Its goal is not to teach factual history, but to "challenge [the student's] cultural assumptions" and mold global citizens with an "emotional commitment to the fundamental unity of all humans....
“In other words, a new commitment to universal oneness must supercede commitments to God and country. While grandiose dreams of global unity reach back to the beginning of history, it was more recently documented in 1973 by the authors of the Humanist Manifesto II. They wrote, "We deplore the division of human-kind on nationalistic grounds. We have reached a turning point in human history where the best option is to transcend the limits of national sovereignty and to move toward the building of a world community....”
“Professor Philip Vander Velde, who taught "Foundations of Education" at Western Washington University, authored the book, Global Mandate: Pedagogy for Peace. Reflecting the views of countless other change agents, he wrote,
“...unless a new faith... overcomes the old ideologies and creates planetary synthesis, world government is doomed.... Nation-states have outlived their usefulness, and a new world order is necessary if we are to live in harmony with each other... The task of reordering our traditional values and institutions should be one of the major educational objectives of our schools.’”
“Do you wonder what kind of ‘global spirituality’ that might be? The following Theosophical statement from Muller's book offers a clue:
‘Once again, but this time on a universal scale, humankind is seeking no less than its reunion with the "divine," its transcendence into ever higher forms of life. Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine. This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity. Its full flowering be the real, great new story of humanity as we are about to enter our cosmic age....’
“After the symposium, Cawelti expressed his appreciation for the positive response to his suggestion. Despite "the pride all countries have in their own core curriculum," he said, all shared a common response "to the urgency of defining what global interdependency means for the schools.”
“Since the ASCD so heartily endorsed Muller's World Core Curriculum, how have Muller's ideas influenced our schools? The answer will help us understand the seductive pull of holistic education, which, like holistic medicine, has suddenly won mainstream support. It provides globalists with the spiritual link needed for a plausible vision of a united world, of connectedness with nature, and of the oneness of the human family around the world.”
“During a visit to Arlington, Texas, some years ago, a friend took me to see the original Robert Muller school. While she waited in the car, I walked past a little Buddha, climbed the steps to the front door, and rang the bell. Gloria Crook, the Director opened the door and asked why I had come. I listed my credentials: I was interested in global education, was concerned about the environment, and was an immigrant from Norway -- a country well known for its global concerns and admiration for the United Nations.
“I must have passed the test, because she invited me in and led me into a massive hallway. Looking to the left, I saw a room full of young mothers and pregnant women in yoga position. On a table next to the doorway, I noticed a stack of papers. The title startled me: "Occult Meditation."
“To those who don't know God, the occult seems good, not bad, I thought to myself.
“Are you familiar with Alice Bailey?" she asked me as we entered a large cluttered office.
“Yes." I nodded, well aware of her links to Theosophy and the occult messages she channeled from her favorite spirit guide. "Didn't she write books full of messages she received from the Tibetan Master, Djwhal Khul?"
“Yes," answered Ms Crook. "Here, sit down and look at some of them." She pulled down several of Bailey's books from a shelf and put them in my lap. I silently thanked God for His spiritual protection as I flipped through the pages of the first one, Education in the New Age.
“Then she handed me the Robert Muller World Core Curriculum Manual. I turned a few pages and read,
"The underlying philosophy upon which the Robert Muller School is based will be found in the teaching set forth in the books of Alice A. Bailey by the Tibetan teacher, Djwhal Khul ...."
“The back of the manual contained two certificates. The first announced that The Robert Muller School "is a participating institution in the UNESCO Associated Schools Project in Education for International Co-operation and Peace." The other confirmed its accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. On behalf of the Southern Association's review team, Dr. Eileen Lynch wrote,
"The visiting team... was so impressed with the Robert Muller School that they thought the educational process and the general curriculum would be most valuable as a model for teacher education... Throughout this report the committee has recommended that information of the school's educational processes be shared with educators everywhere as much as possible." (Emphasis added)
“Finally Ms Crook pulled two large golden frames from the wall and showed them to me. I shivered when I looked at the first. It pictured a beautiful calligraphied rendition of "The Great Invocation," an occult prayer used around the world to invoke a global outpouring of spiritual light and power.”
I would strongly recommend the reader to examine Mrs. Kjos article (link at the beginning of these quotes) in it’s entirety as this presents a full grasp of the entirety (holistic) aspects of education that the Global Educrats are intent on indoctrinating our students with.
Whereas Dewey and Bloom focused on Humanism and Socialism, Muller’s focus was not merely these, but everything that represents an anti-Biblical world view in order to create world citizens that will pay homage to the coming One World Leader, something no Christian would ever commit. It behooves us as Christians, particularly Christian parents that we combat this quite literally satanic (given its scope in context) worldview and to instill and reinforce biblical truth in our children. This concludes this three part article on Forth Comes the Global Educrats.
TTUF Profiles on “21 Radicals” will continue with a treatment on Charles Darwin.
