Idealism Shattered

I am here, Clarence Streit.

I see you are reading my book “Union Now”, and I wish to comment on it, that is, on the one-world government idea behind it. But first, let me say that you need not fear the accuracy of this channeling because the rapport is strong, and you are in a good condition this beautiful sunny afternoon in Berkeley where you currently reside.

Ah yes, this idea. You are wondering if my original conception of it was naive, or did I perceive the great evil in it and dissemble? I will say that I was sincere. I had idealism. I felt that a one-world government was the best solution to the world’s problems. So you now realize I was sincere. We who believed this way knew that most would reject it, so many of our colleagues worked in secret.

So now you know the truth, that I wished for a better world. As you compare this idea to what I have written, you see this coheres. So was I left off the hook morally? I did eventually see that my idealism was misplaced because the greed and lust for power of my future colleagues obliterated all the idealism I had. And as I observe the fruit of my efforts as history has evolved, I am horrified at what has occurred. So I guess I’m saying that my original conception was unworkable. That was quite a bitter pill to swallow, considering I had devoted my whole life to it. But to end on a happy note, yes, the one-world government plan will fail. But something better will take its place.

You began this channeling with the preconceived idea that I was a monster in these plans. But you allowed my thoughts to come through accurately, so I commend you for that.

I did not, however, escape the Law of Compensation. No spirit can.


Clarence Kirschmann Streit (name rhymes with “fight”) (January 21, 1896 California, Missouri - July 6, 1986 Washington, D.C.) was a journalist and Atlanticist who played a prominent role in the Atlantic Movement.

Streit, of Palatine German origin, moved with his family to Missoula, Montana in 1911. In Missoula, he founded the Konah, a high school paper that is now one of the oldest in the United States to be in continuous publication. While a student at Montana State University (now the University of Montana), he volunteered for military service during World War I, serving in an Intelligence unit in France and assisting the American delegation at the Conference of Versailles. He was a Rhodes scholar at University of Oxford in 1920. He married Jeanne Defrance in Paris in 1921, after which he became a foreign correspondent for the New York Times.

In 1929, he was assigned to cover the League of Nations in Switzerland, where he witnessed the League’s slow disintegration and collapse. That experience, coupled with the rise of totalitarian regimes in Europe, convinced him that mankind’s best hope was a federal union of democracies, modeled on American federalism. This led him to write “Union Now”, a book advocating the political integration of the democracies of Western Europe (including their colonies) and the other English-speaking countries at that time (the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa). The book was published in 1938, on the eve of World War II. It had sold over 300,000 copies by 1972. (Source: Wikipedia)
