The common theme in conspiracy theories about a New World Order is that a secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian world government—which will replace sovereign nation-states —and an all-encompassing propaganda whose ideology hails the establishment of the New World Order as the culmination of history's progress. Many influential historical and contemporary figures have therefore been alleged to be part of a cabal that operates through many front organizations to orchestrate significant political and financial events, ranging from causing systemic crises to pushing through controversial policies , at both national and international levels, as steps in an ongoing plot to achieve world domination. Before the early s, New World Order conspiracism was limited to two American countercultures, primarily the militantly anti-government right and secondarily that part of fundamentalist Christianity concerned with the end-time emergence of the Antichrist. During the 20th century, political figures such as Woodrow Wilson and Winston Churchill used the term " new world order " to refer to a new period of history characterised by a dramatic change in world political thought and in the global balance of power after World War I and World War II. Such collective initiatives manifested in the formation of intergovernmental organizations such as the League of Nations in , the United Nations UN in , and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization NATO in , along with international regimes such as the Bretton Woods system and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade GATT , implemented to maintain a cooperative balance of power and facilitate reconciliation between nations to prevent the prospect of another global conflict.
