Professor Anthony Power, noted historian and authority on foreign affairs, was a high-ranking White House advisor under four Presidents. Power was completely dedicated to the American political system and to the principles of democracy under that system.
Losing faith in the American system due to the Vietnam War-related illness of his son, Professor Power soon became convinced that American universities were instilling apathy and cowardice in their students, and that the United States' leaders were so terrified of worldwide nuclear war that they were deliberately dragging America down in what he believed to be meaningless conflicts like the Vietnam war. Taking as his models Alexander the Great and the Roman emperors, who dominated virtually the entire Western civilized world of their times, Professor Power decided that worldwide peace could be achieved only if one mind, one power, controlled the entire Earth. Power believed that America must move against what he saw as the enemies of democracy to annihilate all threats to freedom.
Determined to be the one mind that dominated the entire world, Professor Power dedicated himself to this challenge.
