Sovereign Nations Founder Michael O’Fallon addressed the guests of Sovereign Nations and World Net Daily on the topic “The Genesis of the Progressive Movement” during the World Net Daily Alaska Cruise.

In his presentation, O’Fallon lays out the purposed gradual strategic timeline of the progressive movement beginning with:

  1. The founding of the Fabian Society in the United Kingdom
  2. The influence of George Bernard Shaw, H.G. Wells and others on the Fabian Society
  3. The founding of the Labour Party in 1900 by the Fabian Society
  4. The founding of the London School of Economics by George Bernard Shaw and the Fabian Society
  5. The early progressive influence of the Fabian Society in the United States
  6. The professorship of Dr. Karl Popper and his teaching on “Open Societies” at the London School of Economics
  7. The enrollment and education of a young Hungarian by the name of George Soros at the London School of Economics
  8. George Soros’ move to the United States and his use of the philosophy of reflexivity in financial markets
  9. George Soros’ founding of Open Societies Foundation in the United States and his use of reflexivity in national and international politics

“The purposed catastrophic changes to Western Civilization over the past 100 years are no accident” O’Fallon stated in his 1 hour and 20 minute lecture. “What we have witnessed is the gradual, reflexive, descent of a sovereign nation whose society is based on Judeo Christian principles into a Marxist-inspired, global, non-democratic pseudo democracy controlled by social engineers bent on creating open societies. Our constitution and bill of rights are being deconstructed in the classroom, in the judicial branch, in the halls of congress, and saddest of all, in the church.”

If you were to take a quick search through national mainstream news over the past 8 years would find the following repeated topics:

  • The national borders and immigration laws of the United States are not being respected or enforced by the members of both political parties. The result has been the illegal immigration of tens of millions of unvetted, unverified, undocumented people groups and cultures into the nation
  • The purposed gradual erosion of the constitutional and legal understanding of what it means to be a citizen of the United States
  • A gradual shift from biological, cultural, and common sense understandings of what makes someone an identifiable member of a gender
  • A focus on “social justice” for the purposes of balkanizing the United States and destroying national unity
  • Propagation of the myth of “white privilege” to erase the foundation of the United States and the cohesive underpinnings of Western Civilization
  • Encouraging the widespread acceptance of the concepts of eugenics and abortion
  • Destroying the concept of self governance and encouraging widespread dependence on an oligarchical government
  • The forced secularization of faith

O’Fallon stated, “There must be a unified push-back against those that would erode our God-given liberties and rights as guaranteed under our constitution. Once we establish that movement here in the United States, we must take that fight globally for the sake of mankind. All of issues we are facing now are the consequences of ideas. We must prepare to be warriors on the battlefield of ideas.”

    This presentation was a little over my head! Is there a book or another lecture that simplifies all this? For instance, I don’t know anything about the London School of Economics but it appears this is a dangerous “think tank”.
    Thank you.

      Glen Beck did an expose’ on this while he was still at Fox News. You could probably find it on YouTube, in several parts. He lays out the same information and does it very well… shortly after, he “left” Fox News.

    Great exposition of the Progressive Movement. Does anyone know if the second follow-up video was posted or not? I could not find it on Youtube.

    It goes back even further than the Fabian Society but you’re on the right track. The only thing that I would add is that unless the people wake up to what is going on NOW it’s going to be too late. Most people are too nice and unable to accept just how evil these people are and what they’re capable of. They are pure EVIL and must be exterminated with extreme prejudice!

    I am looking for an apolitical credible source to cite on American Progressives adopting the Fabian Socialist tactic of “Infiltration” aka “Gradualism” as a method of revolution.

    Karl Popper’s ‘The Open Society and it enemies’ is a famously comprehensively denunciation of all totalitarian political visions from Plato’s ‘Republic’ to Karl Marx. I don’t see how you can blame Popper for what George Soros is doing now with his ‘Open Societies Foundation’, which now seems to be dedicated to the exact opposite of Popper’s book. How did Soros manage to utterly pervert and reverse Popper’s ideals? That is a genuine question, which I’d appreciate an answer to instead of trying to tar Popper with the same brush as Soros. There was a time when even Soros was financing efforts to help and encourage Communist bloc dissidents. This included underground lectures by the likes of Roger Scruton the famous conservative philosopher. Yes, there was a time when Soros was funding Scruton…! Also, just because Popper taught at the LSE doesn’t mean he shared the socialist views of its founders. After all, Michael Oakeshott and Elie Kedourie also taught at the LSE…!
