“World One” was right in its dire prediction of the end of civilization

(ORDO NEWS) — Apocalyptic predictions have been made for many centuries. From the ancient religious text “Revelation” to banned literature and its fictional incarnation in major Hollywood films; it is typical to associate apocalyptic predictions with fantasies and fictions.

Through a strange series of mathematical calculations, Isaac Newton was able to predict the end of civilization in 1704, around 2060. Although such predictions were usually mediated by religion, it is puzzling that the famous astronomer and physicist made such predictions.

However, more than 300 years after Newton’s prediction, in the 1970s American engineer Jay Forrester and his team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) developed a computer program called World One.

The World One program was processed and operated by the largest Australian computer at the time, frankly presenting the complex model of planet Earth and what mankind had done to destroy it.

World One was developed under the auspices of the Club of Rome, a high and elite society of wealthy industrialists. And, oddly enough, the computerized system of dynamics came to the same apocalyptic conclusion as Newton did in the 1700s.

In 1973, the Australian Broadcasting Network (ABC) demonstrated newly developed First World technology. ABC showed computer-generated predictions in disturbing detail.

Showing a complex model of the planet Earth, World One presented a sharp increase in population and pollution, a negative deterioration in the quality of life of civilizations, the loss of natural wealth and resources – minerals, oil, and so on.

Terrifyingly, World One predicted a decline in the overall quality of life that would come in 2020, along with alarming predictions of the complete collapse of civilization. “By 2060, all civilized life as we know it will cease to exist,” an Australian reporter for ABC declared in 1973.

An Australian broadcaster presented World One’s predictions in a printed chart detailing the four key components that will eventually lead to the end of civilization: “P Curve” representing population, “Q Curve” representing quality of life, “N Curve” representing natural resources and “Z Curve” representing environmental pollution.

World One has predicted that there will be a global collapse by 2040 if the population surge and global industrialization continue at current levels.

Apart from a subtle mirror image of Newton’s 1704 prediction, World One’s predictions so far have proven alarmingly different from the many predicaments born of 2020 and the years leading up to it.

“About 2020, the state of the planet will become critical. If we do nothing, the quality of life will drop to zero. Pollution will become so serious that it will start killing people, which in turn will lead to a decrease in the population – lower than in 1900 “.

Depressingly, the ABC reporter concludes his tour of the World One charts by saying: “At this point, around 2040-2050, civilized life as we know it will cease to exist on this planet.”


Founded in 1968 at the Accademia dei Lincei in Rome, Italy, the Club of Rome today has around one hundred exclusive members. It includes well-known scientists, economists, diplomats, businessmen and businesswomen, high-ranking civil servants, current and former heads of government.

This shadow society of wealthy industrialists and scientists remains a central figure in many contemporary conspiracy theories. Probably thanks to the infamous founders of the club: Aurelio Peccei, Alexander King and David Rockefeller.

Interestingly, the Club of Rome was featured on an ABC broadcast, which made them famous for foreseeing the natural and man-made disasters proposed by the First World in the early 21st century.

Both Alexander King and Aurelio Peccei made it clear in a 1973 interview that interdependence (globalism) is the seed that will eventually grow into draining our sovereignty, as well as global sovereignty in general.

Clearly, the Club of Rome had many misgivings about independent nations freely indulging private enterprise, pushing for a New World Order.

An order in which big government and elite corporations will manage and “take care of” all human needs, desires and whims, acting as the main parent. Hence King’s belief in the need for “interdependence” and not “independence.”

“Dr. King, you describe the world as a closed system where all these things are interconnected, and yet government – control of the system – is exercised by individual nation-states. How do you convince them to cooperate?” asked an ABC reporter.

Alexander King, then head of the World Bank, replied: “The sovereignty of nations is no longer as absolute as it used to be.” He added: “There is a gradual decrease and weakening of sovereignty, little by little … Even in large states, this will happen.”

The Club of Rome has also predicted that major states such as the US will have to cut back on their demand for world resources. He further put forward the idea of ​​ending private enterprise and giving the state full control over all exports, production, and so on.

“I think going forward you will see that Australia will have to lose some of its own decisions in order to acquire something else that may be purely political in a very broad sense, and may be safe.”

Dystopian future

Assuming a suspiciously semantic and at the same time ominous idea of ​​the Club of Rome, it is safe to say that it causes bewilderment on both sides of the coin.

Instead of being “dedicated to solving global problems related to population and economic growth”, as their website claims, there may indeed be elements of social engineering involved.

The club’s open connivance with the loss of sovereignty, the loss of independence, the privatization of industry, and the general indiscreet push for a New World Order is certainly a fundamental element in order to question the moral foundations of World One.

In the words of an ABCs reporter, “How is the Club of Rome going to convince us to work together?”.

When Dr. Peccei was asked what the average lifestyle would look like in 100 years, Dr. Peccei replied that wilderness and nature “should disappear.” He also added:

“You’ll probably have a smaller car, you’ll use more common modes of transport, you’ll work far fewer hours, and you’ll have more cultural opportunities than today.”

“You won’t be so bothered by the needs of the day, because thanks to technology, the organization of the markets, the basic needs will be met, and I think that you will love nature and continue what I think you are doing now to protect our environment. to escape this man-made world where nature’s creations, animals, plants, green spaces, wildlife, must disappear.”
