In 1989, Cronkite spoke to a dinner organized by People for the American Way...
In 1999, he appeared at the United Nations to accept the Norman Cousins Global Governance Award from the World Federalists Association. He told those assembled, including Hillary Rodham Clinton, that the first step toward achieving a one-world government his personal dream is to strengthen the United Nations...as a first step toward a world government patterned after our own government with a legislature, executive and judiciary, and police to enforce its international laws and keep the peace," he said. "To do that, of course, we Americans will have to yield up some of our sovereignty... "
In his acceptance speech, Cronkite added, "Pat Robertson has written in a book a few years ago that we should have a world government, but only when the Messiah arrives. He wrote, literally, any attempt to achieve world order before that time must be the work of the devil. Well, join me. I'm glad to sit here at the right hand of Satan."
Later, in an interview with the BBC, Cronkite described this new order as something that sounded like a militaristic world dictatorship.
"I wouldn't give up on the U.N. yet," he said. "I think we are realizing that we are going to have to have an international rule of law. We need not only an executive to make international law, but we need the military forces to enforce that law and the judicial system to bring the criminals to justice before they have the opportunity to build military forces that use these horrid weapons that rogue nations and movements can get hold of germs and atomic weapons."

Perhaps those words mean something to him now, however.
There are no athiests on the other side of death.
What was Britt Hume on when he said he kept his liberalist to himself? Thank God for the internet and being free of these liberal media monsters!!
Enjoy yourself,Walt....you've earned it.
Goodbye Walter, no thinking person will miss you.
Tom Brokjaw is every bit as bad as Walter ever was.
It's amazing that most people are unaware of the true nature of this "smiling 'undertaker' grandfather figure."
His delusion was no different than that of Marx, or Lenin or even Hitler, assembling the tools for a new society, ruled by --- what?
All have uniformly failed; simple bricklayers on the road of good intentions. The only unfortunate result is that we must deal with the destination here on earth.
How does one "...enforce that law and the judicial system to bring the criminals to justice..." without the use of force? By sacrificing other peoples' lives of course, none of which are criminal.
This do-gooder was never in a position to do overt damage, but he did his part to enable the 'do-gooders' we are experiencing today.
This guy was worse than merely bad. He created a permanent illusion of 'good,' where his only ability was ignorance of human nature and history.
But he sounded great!
I was actually surprised to learn a few years ago that there still were a few people who tuned in for the evening "news" on the MSN.
I simply can't imagine doing that anymore.
