"Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government.”—Henry Kissinger

No evidence it came from Kissinger. I just always remembered it as a strategy that someone might try and heck might even work to a degree. Nazi's did something similar in Operation Canned Goods to justify their war. Been many of these "false flag" operations that worked against one nation to benefit another. If you want to unite the world with fear, the threat has to be something outside it that threatens the entire world. A natural catastrophe (see Armageddon) or aliens are two possibilities.

All I can say is Orson Wells was a genius even if an asshole. Whoever wrote that quote was probably just turning his stunt into a modern strategy for getting power. ;)
