CTL refers to the United Nations as an agency ultimately working for
the enslavement of the human race through subtle means. It asserts
that even though well-meaning people are involved in the effort, the
hidden agenda is ultimately to create a global tyranny through slow,
imperceptable implementation. The codeword for this arrangement is
"New World Order" referred to by political leaders (e.g. president
Bush), perhaps some unwittingly, for decades. Nations are encouraged
to give away their sovereignty to a higher authority in the same way
local citizens have given their rights away to their national
governments. See [Jasper92].
