New world order, frequently abbreviated to NWO, is a phrase originally coined after the Great War (World War I) to describe Woodrow Wilson's strategy during the formation of the League of Nations (later replaced with the United Nations since 1945). It was meant to imply that the international political climate that existed before the war had to be changed by adopting a compact of collective security and emphasizing the right to self-determination and democracy. However, when the United States rejected membership of the League, the term became discredited. Since then the term has been applied (sometimes retroactively) to pivotal changes in international affairs, such as the end of World War II or the end of the Cold War.
The phrase "new world order" has since developed a much more sinister meaning of implementing a one-world government and ending national sovereignty under the disguise of "world peace." In 1991, former president George H. W. Bush promoted the new world order and described it as being a world where a rule of law would determine the conduct of nations, which vaguely describes a one-world government. Insisting that the plan will be a success, Bush goes on to say that the new world order will allow the United Nations to fulfill its peacekeeping role that its founders had envisioned.
