New World Order
The expression New World Order (NWO) usually refers to an argued emerging exploitative world government and various related forms of harmful globalization.
The phrase is today often claimed to always refer to a secret conspiracy theory similar to The Protocols of the Elders of Zion (by a wide variety of conspirators), but that is not necessarily how the phrase has been used (see below). Supporters of globalization or a world government have often stated so openly.
The phrase "new world order" is in itself unspecific and has been used in various ways. After the First World War and Second World War, it was used by individuals such as Woodrow Wilson and Winston Churchill to refer to the changed political situation and the emergence of new globalist institutions, such as the League of Nations and the United Nations.
William Luther Pierce has stated that "The truth of the matter is that the New World Order people ultimately aim to create a New World Population of serfs for their global plantation, a homogeneous population of coffee-colored serfs --- a population of docile, predictable, and interchangeable serfs -- and they definitely don't want any large reservoir of White people anywhere who might rebel".
An example of a somewhat different usage is "The United States is, itself, a product of the fall of the Old World Order. The Old World Order, as far as government is concerned, was comprised of the Christian monarchies which ruled by "divine right" after the fall of the Western Roman Empire in the sixth century. The term "New World Order" pertained to an ideal world which was allegedly to develop on the ashes of the Old Order after no powerful monarchs ruled in Europe. The American Revolution was a relatively benign manifestation of a revolutionary movement against that Old Order. This movement bore its most bitter fruit in the 19th and 20th centuries. This revolutionary movement, whatever its merits once were, has been hijacked by the enemies of our race and nation."
As a derogatory label
In politically correct sources, the term may be used as a derogatory label for claimed absurd theories, which may explain why it is used in, for example, the leftist Wikipedia to label various theories only vaguely associated with a world government, such as deep state theories.
