Globalization through institutional collaboration and cooperation
This story will translate to all kinds of conclusions being drawn by Obama’s opponents. Here we go, there will be cries of socialism and cries that cooperation will lead to the degradation and subordination of US Constitutional freedom to lesser quality forms of government throughout the world. I don’t think so.
President Obama is not the first to mention a “new world order.”
Above is a link to the video of George Bush senior introducing the concept.
"Time and again in this century, the political map of the world was transformed. And in each instance, a New World Order came about through the advent of a new tyrant or the outbreak of a bloody global war, or its end." -President George Bush, during a speech in San Francisco.

Foreign Affairs quotes historian Arthur Schlesinger as declaring: "We are not going to achieve a new world order without paying for it in blood as well as in words and money."
“President vows an ‘international order’ as part of new national policy
By Michael D. Shear
WEST POINT, N.Y. - President Obama on Saturday pledged to shape a new "international order" as part of a national security strategy that emphasizes his belief in global institutions and America's role in promoting democratic values around the world.
Speaking to the graduating class at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point — the ninth wartime commencement in a row, he said — the commander in chief who is leading two foreign wars expressed his faith in cooperation and partnerships to confront the economic, military and environmental challenges of the future.
"The international order we seek is one that can resolve the challenges of our times,'" he said in prepared remarks. "Countering violent extremism and insurgency; stopping the spread of nuclear weapons and securing nuclear materials; combating a changing climate and sustaining global growth; helping countries feed themselves and care for their sick; preventing conflict and healing its wounds."
