The New World Order is no longer a conspiracy theory; it is an established fact. The "New World Order" has been a prominent conspiracy theory for decades. Here and now, as the new millennium dawns, the New World Order has become a globally recognised political concept, and as such it can no longer be regarded simply as a theory. Mankind is now literally entering a new age, the Age of Aquarius, according to the ancient zodiacal calendar which is as old as human civilisation. Aquarius is associated by astrologers with brotherhood, or fraternity, which is the cornerstone of Freemasonry.
