Helen,

'I can only conclude that my posts are worrying for those in Common Purpose as they are being unreasonably attacked.'

I doubt that CP has the slightest interest in you or your conspiracy theory. Certainly not given your posts on the subject so far and your weird idea that all managers are psychopaths.

you are talking twaddle, and are being asked to provide evidence, and some semblance of self awareness. Given your views it seems most likely that you are a shill for someone else, because no-one can be this silly, surely?

Dunno about psychopathic but in the construction and mining industries it is essential to have a criminal mind to deal with other managers and contractors' managers. Workforce management is straightforward. Explain your requirements clearly, the purpose of those requirements if needed, then check to make sure everything is understood. Then get them to sign something to cover your 4 r s 3.

The following is an excerpt from the "UK Column". ukcolumn.org
which offers some insight as to where the driving force for Common Purpose stems from.

Multiple Paths Lead To One World Government. by Martin Edwards & Mike Robinson
......................................................................
That we live in a world of "Agenda Politics" is absolutely clear. Governments come and go, but the agenda never changes. Policies left incomplete by one Government are taken up with gusto by the next. Civil servants get involved in writing party manifestoes.
One of the most obvious of the agendas our politicians are pushing, is that of "World Government". The British Parliament is now subservient to so many foreign bodies and institutions it is hard to keep count.
This is not a new agenda. It has been pushed since before the twentieth century by, among others, the "rat pack" of the Huxley's, H.G.Wells, Bertrand Russell, and the like. And it finds its expression in a host of organisations, "think" tanks, NGOs, and committees.
The most obvious example of these organisations, of course, is Julian Huxley's United Nations.

It was Franklin D. Roosevelt who first coined the term "United Nations". His vision however was for a forum of sovereign nations; a world apart from what the United Nations has become.
Perhaps a less obvious path to world Government is the Commonwealth, and a question which has long been on our minds is, which is the path which is most likely to get us there?
A hint came in July 2010, when the Queen addressed the UN. General Assembly. She said:

"This September, leaders will meet to agree how to achieve the Millennium Development Goals when each nation will have it's own distinctive contribution to make....
Since I addressed you last, the Commonwealth, too, has grown vigorously to become a group of nations representing nearly two billion people. It gives it's wholehearted support to the significant contributions to the peace and stability of the world, made by the United Nations and it's agencies. Last November, when I opened the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Trinidad and Tobago, I told the delegates that the Commonwealth had the opportunity to lead. Today I offer you the same message."

The implications of this are staggering. Here, the British Monarch is telling the world that she is creating the largest power bloc within the United Nations. A power bloc with 54 votes, compared to the single votes of say, the USA. Russia, or China.

The Commonwealth Is The British Empire.
...........................................................
Contrary to rumour, the British Empire never went away. Commonwealth Nations never, in reality, obtained independence from Britain. Instead, they simply went through a process of devolution; home rule instead of direct rule. Puppet Presidents and Prime Ministers, to replace Viceroys and Governors.
In any case the British Empire was never really about Britain, and has certainly never been about the British people. It was, and remains, a corporate and financial empire; an international trading empire based on the looting of nations and the trafficking of drugs.
For a while that corporate infrastructure was effectively nationalised, and took on the appearance of being a British political empire, rather than a corporate financial one.

After the second world war, however, "empire" became unfashionable. It was time to move to the next phase of the globalist agenda, so the empire shrunk into the shadows. The colonies were restructured, and the embryonic institutions of "World Government" were formed.
Today it has raised it's ugly head above the parapet once again with renewed vigour, and once again we stare into the jaws of a now truly global, corporate communitarian monster.

A Return To Feudalism.
................................
The apex of the pyramid of feudal power is the monarch. In Britain, our monarch and her family get involved in a wide range of activities, some commercial, some not. One area the British Royal Family has been involved in is environmentalism, particularly so-called "Sustainable Development."
both Prince Philip and Prince Charles push the idea that humanity is a parasite on the face of the earth; Philip perhaps a little more openly since he has expressed his desire to be reincarnated as a virus which would solve what he views as the global population problem.

Nonetheless, both father and son head up the global environmental push for massive depopulation, limiting of technology except where it oppresses, and limiting access to natural resources.
Prince Philips World Wildlife Fund is directly responsible for the deaths of many, many people through it's interference, for example, with irrigation programs right around the world which would feed millions.
But it is Prince Charles' "Prince of Wales International Business Leaders Forum" which along with the IMF. World Bank, and the United Nations, have really been pushing the sustainable development policy, including the U.N.s "Agenda 21".

Agenda 21.
...............
Agenda 21 is a term which has mostly been dropped these days. Too many people became aware of what it was - a modern form of feudalism.
Agenda 21 designed a global movement, coordinated through a global to local action plan to create world government in accordance with certain objectives:
* Populations to be concentrated in Cities.
* An end to National Sovereignty.
* The abolition of private property.
* The restructuring of the family unit and increasing limitations on mobility and individual opportunity.

Now consider the policies coming out of our own Government:

* The systematic destruction of our farming industry.
* An end to national sovereignty. European and UN. laws applied at the local level - "The Big Society."
* Private property and assets stripped away through economic hardship and crippling taxes.
* Children stolen by the State and pushed into a multi billion pound care system.
* 0-19 education programs (schools opening longer, no parental influence)
* Crippling public transport costs, and soon to be imposed road charging.
So, while the term "Agenda 21 has been dropped, the policies it represented absolutely have not. They have simply been transformed into the "Big Society" and the "Millennium Development Goals." The agenda remains, and at it's heart is the drive for world government.

The Leadership Agenda.
..................................
Let's look again at what we said about Agenda 21 above - "a global movement, coordinated through a global to local action plan." A key facet of that action plan is to push the agenda down to the most local levels in society.
One mechanism for achieving that has been the absolute destruction of our education system. The inability of our teachers to teach has nothing to do with their capability as teachers, but rather the imposition of ever more ridiculous processes and procedures, which bar them from teaching effectively. The deliberate dumbing down of entire generations of children guarantees that those children will grow up as more sustainable human beings, because stupid adults earn less and therefore consume less. Stupid adults are incapable of recognising Delphi technique when it is being used upon them. Stupid adults are incapable of understanding the lessons of history, or of Shakespeare.
But stupid adults still need leadership, and it's through the massive increase in "leadership" training that the world government agenda is being implemented. --Please see our One World Governance Series for more on this.

As stated above, the apex of the pyramid of feudal power is the monarch. Historically, the military stronghold from which such power was wielded was the castle. One such stronghold is Windsor Castle.
Windsor Castle is the home of the Windsor Leadership Trust. St Georges House College, states that:
"Through a unique portfolio of programmes and consultations, held at St. Georges House, Windsor Castle, we provide opportunities for leaders to develop their own leadership wisdom and insight. Leaders from all sectors take part, including business, government, military, religion, and not for profit."

St. Georges House was founded in 1966. by H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh, and the then Dean of Windsor, Robin Woods, as a place where people of influence and responsibility in every area of society can come together to explore and communicate their views and analysis of contemporary issues.
The website of the World Bank contains a page dedicated to a: Leadership Program: Windsor Meeting July 2007. It reads:
Following consultations on the establishment of a Global Leadership Initiative (GLI) to generate support - globally - for leadership development interventions, a second meeting of the core group for the initiative (GLI) took place in Windsor. UK. from July 8--10. 2007.
Organisations represented at this meeting were UNDP. DflD. CIDA. The Windsor Leadership Trust. And the World Bank. (PRMPS and WBIGP)
All meetings at the Windsor Leadership Trust are held under The Chatham House Rule which the majority of UK Column readers would associate with Julia Middleton's Common Purpose.

Connections Between The Monarchy, Common Purpose, And The United Nations.
................................................................................................................
The Windsor 2012 Annual Lecture held on Monday the 28th of May this year was given by Assistant Commissioner Cressida Dick QPM, of the Metropolitan Police.
Dick, was the policewoman in charge of the operation that led to the death of Jean Charles de Menezes, mistaken for a suicide bomber at London's Stockwell tube station. According to the response to a "Freedom of Information" request by the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS.) dated 8th September 2008. Deputy Assistant Commissioner Cressida Dick attended a training course run by Common Purpose whilst serving with Thames Valley Police (TVP.)

Researchers have also discovered that Dr. Kate Ardern MB. ChB. MSc. FFPH. Executive Director of Public Health for the Borough of Wigan, and graduate of Merseyside Common Purpose (1999) is also an Alumnus of the Windsor Leadership Programme with which she has an ongoing involvement.
In "Developing Tomorrows Leaders, CBI. Guide to Leadership." by Prof. John Adair (published by Windsor Leadership Trust in September 2007):

"Public leadership programmes should be used selectively. Their chief value is to get managers out of their corporate silos and cross-fertilising with managers from a wide variety of organisations. Recommended programmes in this context include those of The Windsor Leadership Trust, the Whitehall and Industry group, the Campaign for Leadership and Common Purpose."

In 2009. John Adair was made United Nations Chair of Strategic Leadership. Based in Turin, he has launched a strategic leadership programme in association with the UN. In chapter 1 of her book, "Beyond Authority: Leadership In A Changing World" Julia Middleton, CEO. Common Purpose, writes:

"Society needs leaders who can overcome the silo problem inside their organisation - and then move across different spheres of activity outside it and connect them too. Then, perhaps we can start to shift the 'silo problem' in society as well."

Amongst the Windsor Leadership Trust Movers and Shakers Autumn 2011. We discover Oliver Mack WLP. 2001. now Chief Operating Officer at Common Purpose.
The Windsor Leadership Trust supports the Clore Leadership Programme.
The Clore Leadership Programme is supported by Common Purpose. The relationship between these organisations is incestuous in nature.
According to Linked In, Doug King LVO. MA. is Assistant Private Secretary to the Queen. He is a Common Purpose 20:20 graduate and Windsor Leadership Trust Alumni.

CSC Leaders.
...................
Windsor Leadership Trust is not the only training organisation that Prince Philip has set up, however.
According to the Linked In page of Sam Stewart, Plymouth based Director of CSC Leaders. And ex-regional Director of Common Purpose CSC. Leaders:

"...will assemble 100 of the most exceptional individuals from across the Commonwealth with the purpose of tackling challenges that business, governments and society, face today and build global relationships needed by the leaders of tomorrow. CSC Leaders, is the renewal of H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh's Commonwealth Study Conferences, and represents a partnership between H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh's Commonwealth Study Conferences (UK Fund) and Common Purpose. The international leadership organisation operating in 18 countries which has been giving people the inspiration, skills and connections to become better leaders both at work and in society for over 21 years. The Duke of Edinburgh's Commonwealth Study Conferences were first initiated by H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh...The Conferences have continued to run every 6 years or so. Hosted by a different Commonwealth Country."

World Government Via The UN. Or The Commonwealth.
...............................................................................
Our research has led us to conclude that the Commonwealth is well on it's way to becoming the key power bloc leading us to World Government, via the United Nations. It would appear that the question is not whether one or the other will take us there, since both are.
As for who is pushing the agenda,
So far all paths lead us back to the British Crown.

As always an excellent piece of research.

Neosbro,

Is there no end to your gullibility? Just a quick look at one of the 'owners' of the Red Ice Creations website is a Henrik Palmgren, whose own website proclaims:

"Filmmaker, radio host, musician, editor, director, researcher & graphics designer. I am an explorer of the occult, esoteric & exoteric. I am an observer of everything from conspiracies to subtle nuances of divine communication and meaningful coincidences."

In other words, just another charlatan taking money from the gullible in order to feed them with material that reinforces their own prejudices and foolishness. And you seriously think this is a credible source?

Hello again Margaret,
Nice to chat with you again. The previous article I posted, written by Martin Edwards & Mike Robinson, was copied from UK Column. ( ukcolumn.org ) An excellent site for researching the real M/O of Common Purpose and organisations of that ilk. It's perfectly clear that Common Purpose has it's supporters/members on this forum. As expected, I knew it would get the usual dogs of negativity snapping and snarling among themselves, but I've decided to take a leaf out of your book and put them on ignore.
Times like this, a quotation from 19th century German Philosopher, Arthur Schopenhauer seems quite apt.

"All truth passes through three stages!

First,- it is ridiculed.

Second,- it is violently opposed.

Third,- it is accepted as being self evident."

NeosBro,

'"All truth passes through three stages! First,- it is ridiculed. Second,- it is violently opposed. Third,- it is accepted as being self evident." '

Your statement whilst interesting is based on the false premise that what you have posted represents 'truth.' Take that out of the equation and your stages become untenable. I could equally post three stages for the average gullible Conspiracy Theorist:

First - they post outlandish ideas worthy of ridicule by anybody with a brain.
Secondly - when these are not instantly accepted they resort to insults, as they cannot actually debate their own position in any depth.
Thirdly - when this doesn't work, they then put their questioners on ignore, since that's the only way to deal with those annoying questions that undermine their daft beliefs.

Congratulations, you've now reached stage 3 on the CT scale of ridiculousness.

Undermine what ?

All we are trying to do it find out what common purpose actually does.
If as they espouse CP choses and trains leaders, then Surely we should know on what authority and how it decides who will be leaders, and who gives them the power to make these people leaders.

Helen,

'All we are trying to do it find out what common purpose actually does.'

No you aren't. You told us what it did and then claimed you had no evidence to back up your claims. Asking for evidence is one of those awkward questions I was referring to.

'If as they espouse CP choses and trains leaders, then Surely we should know on what authority and how it decides who will be leaders, and who gives them the power to make these people leaders.'

You still haven't been able to say why leadership programmes are unacceptable to you. Most big businesses use them, so what's your problem?

You and I have an inherent need to impart knowledge and empower people by educating them about injustices. Don't let any 'thing' stop you. Many people just arn't aware of what we post.... but I believe they do absorb some of it, and then it grows, and benefit's all mankind... that I am sure of..

Quite right Phelan, I think it is a real injustice that I should pay taxes to help people who have abused their bodies with drugs and booze while I have kept clean. Was that what you had in mind?

Roma says:
Hi Pen, i don t drink alcohol nor use illegal drugs, yet i am very happy that my taxes are used to help people who have a history of substance abuse. Alcohol is legal and socially acceptable and while most people do not abuse it, for those who become addicted, it can be totally destructive both for themselves and their families. Also, there is a very strong link between mental health issues and alcohol and drug abuse, with many people self medicating in the absence of proper diagnosis and treatment.

I do believe, however, that addicts have a responsibility to avail themselves of the support available to help them overcome their addiction.

I have never yet met an alcoholic or drug addict and hoped we could change places. Neither do i judge them because i don t know what in life has taken them to this dark place. In gratitude that i live in a better place i m happy for them to have my money.
Cheers

Roma - you have never met an alcoholic or a drug addict?? For heaven's sake, in what uninhabited island do you happen to live??

That's in no way related to the original topic I have *almost* no idea about and I never thought to post, however your statement baffled me just a bit too much. So once started - I'd happily share my money for the sake of those who really *want* help. Sadly, the vast (?) majority of alcoholics or drug addicts lose any capability to consciously want any help pretty quickly. In many cases they reach the point where no strong will can really help (not that they have any, most of them, that is). "Alcohol and drug abuse" and "self medicating" in the same sentence also goes beyond my comprehension to be honest

Roma says:
Hi Anita
Of course i have met alcohol and drug addicts. I didn t say that. I said i have never met one whose life i would prefer to my own, acknowledging that their lives are not to be envied. I m surprised you regard substance abuse and medication as oxymoronic as it is well recognised that many people with mental illnesses use alcohol and drugs to alleviate their condition. Obviously this is not recommended as it leads to two problems instead of you.However, the damage is often done before people are diagnosed and receive treatment. This may not be recognised by yourself but it is by psychiatrists who offer "dual diagnosis" clinics. I always think any one of us could end up as addicts and am thankful that there are people who help and not condemn.
Cheers
