"For this wisdom above all, we thank Mr. Jefferson,
who helped create the system that served us so well for so long
and that now must, in its turn, die and be replaced."
- Newt Gingrich, quoted in Creating a New Civilization: The Politics of the Third Wave, pg.91, by Alvin Toffler & Heidi Toffler,
Turner Publishing, March 1995
There it is. The quote of the campaign - something to share far and wide - with full attribution.
Thanks Ron Paul.
=============================Creating A New Civilization
How Newt Gingrich has been Tofflerizedhttp://www.isburg.net/essays/Creating_New_Civilization_newt.html
By Nancy ThomsonExcerpt:
... Despite all of the above, the most telling features (and perhaps the reason) for Newt’s duplicity is a result of his long association with Alvin and Heidi Toffler.
The Tofflers, who have been described as "Newt’s Guru", are global, new age socialists. Gobbledegook best explains phrases such as "demassification of production", "civilizational upheaval", "byte cities", " brain lords" and "cyberpolitics." Their literary efforts are arrogant and reach illogical conclusions based solely on left wing ideology which (when tried) has already proved fatal for our society.
Founders of the "three wave" theories, wave one - agricultural, wave two - industrial, and wave three - knowledge power, the Tofflers want to redesign the world.No longer are sovereignty, the U.S. Constitution or traditional families necessary.
Tofflers, Alvin and Heidi, scoff at the problems associated with Clinton’s foreign campaign contributions. It is no big deal, according to them, because every country should be interfering with every other country on a global basis. EVERYTHING is global!
They reason that those who consider foreign linked funding as being inappropriate are basing their decisions on the obsolete conception of nationhood.
The Toffler’s book, "Creating A New Civilization" (The Politics Of The Third Wave) with a foreword by Newt Gingrich, should have been warning enough for the Republicans. Newt has joined the Clintinistas. He has rammed through the 22,000 page GATT, put U.S. business under the WTO, pushed the Mexican peso bailout using $20,000,000,000 (that’s billion) of our tax money, supported Clinton’s effort to block repatriation of hundreds of thousands of Central Americans who fled to the U.S. for temporary refuge when their region was in turmoil, and is responsible for initiating the latest effort to admit Puerto Rica as a state.
This is a partial list of third wave thinking on the part of Newt Gingrich.
Heidi Toffler stated that more women and minorities must be elected to government. In response, Arianna Huffington exclaimed that such a concept was second wave and out of synch with new age women who won’t have to depend on Washington to make their marks. The former Mrs. Huffington also urged third wavers not to associate with those who cling to the second wave.
The Republicans (the opposition party) had better decide which wave the Speaker is putting them in. Our Constitutional boat is sinking fast and the Gingrich-Toffler third wave power drive will drown us all.
