1918: "The old world order changed when this war-storm [WW I] broke. ... The old world order died with the setting of that day's sun and a new world order is being born while I speak" - Nicholas Murray Butler, in his book A World in Ferment

1975: "The existing order is breaking down at a very rapid rate, and the main uncertainty is whether mankind can exert a positive role in shaping a new world order or is doomed to await collapse in a passive posture. We believe a new world order will be born no later than early in the next century and that the death throes of the old and the birth pangs of the new will be a testing time for the human species." - Richard A. Falk in "Toward a New World Order: Modest Methods and Drastic Visions" article in On the Creation of a Just World Order
