Global Government

    Arthur Fontesposted 7 years ago

    Would you be willing to give up U.S. souverenity to a United Nations control?  Do you think the world would be better off under a one world government using a global currency?  A world without borders and a sharing of economic and natural resources?

      How has a 1 global religion worked out so far? A 1 global government would turn out the same way.

        How about if the one world religion is formed at the same time in the entity controlling environmentalism.  Do you not think that a worship the world religion is being forced on us Right now.

          I know, but I think this was the goal when religion first developed. Much easier to control a group if they all have the same morals and belief compared to them all having their different individual morals and beliefs.

      It's not a simple matter of sovereignty. Some things globalise naturally, to the general good (e.g. English as a universal second (or first) langauge, communication technology and the Internet). Some things need to be pushed along, but are worth pushing, like International Law, Human Rights, etc. There will always be the need for intra-community and inter-community organisation, which traditionally equate to local and central government. But the inter-community organisation might eventually be remodelled more along network lines, instead of pyramid style centralisation. The last thing we need is a 'world president'.

          Ralph Deedsposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          I've been following the talks at Copenhagen. They appear to be going nowhere fast. Besides, an agreement among nations to do something to control carbon emissions is hardly giving up their sovereignty. There have been plenty of such agreements in the past involving a variety of topics from nuclear disarmament to protection of endangered species and various agreements wrt international plane flights, laws of the sea, etc. Nothing alarming. The advance of technology has required all kinds of international treaties and cooperation. And there will be more in the future.

        Contemplation is what I do in my spare time and it is great to read all the feedback.  I like questions that make me think. As for proposals how about Agenda 21 I only know what I have read on the subject which is not vast but a few articles.  I am disturbed by it though and it does make me contemplate questions such as this. I do enjoy taking advantage of my First ammendment rights while I still can.

      It matters not what I would do or want, the soverignty of this nation was signed over to a foreign power when the Congress and the President of the US ratified and signed the UN Charter.  The acclerated rate at which we are moving towards a Marxist, socialist society is probably best witnessed by the answer that you have received given this question.

      Arthur:
      I think you know that I have written a "hub" on this subject.
      If man is to survive as a species, a 1 world gov't will be its only hope.
      As fragmented as contemporay mankind is, the odds are that a 1 world gov't has no chance of being realized before it has suffered a population reducing catastrophe.
      Human population would, necessarily, HAVE TO BE, massively, reduced in number to be governable.
      That gov't would have to dedicated to the destruction of all facets of religion and Machiavellian in control, assuring itself that "it" (religion) could not rise again.
      The governing body would have to be devoted to the concept of the survival or the human species.
      At this moment in time, all that I have written above, has to be considered to be pure idealism to the max.

        This is a very scary scenario that you describe.

        It sounds more like it would be a world of total global dictatorship with no personal freedom.

        I would not even want to be a part of such a world.

        1. qwark profile image61
          qwarkposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          Yes, It would have to be such.
          Once a 1 world gov't was in control and all facets of resistance was destroyed, a universal movement to educate the remaining populace could begin.
          Genetic engineering would be utilized to create new human species that would be the future leaders of human life.
          The gov't would allow freedom to all who were dedicated to progress and human survival.
          It would take a few generations to realize the fruition of a society that functioned in concert to guarantee the viability of all extant life.
          Living on this planet could be paradise under the democratic rule of an elected gov't devoted to the success of the human species.

      So long as that World Government provided the protections of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of happiness...

      We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all PEOPLE are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among HUMANITY, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security...
      ... To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

    Soros wants to kill capitalism:

    “The system we have now has actually broken down, only we haven’t quite recognized it and so you need to create a new one and this is the time to do it,” Soros told the Financial Times last month

    Soros said he wants Communist China to run this new financial system. “You really need to bring China into the creation of a new world order, a financial world order,” Soros said.

    If that doesn’t send a chill down the spines of freedom lovers in America and elsewhere, nothing will.

    In an interview with Der Spiegel last year Soros said European-style socialism “is exactly what we need now. I am against market fundamentalism. I think this propaganda that government involvement is always bad has been very successful — but also very harmful to our society.”

    The very idea that the US would secede control to the United Nations is..odd. They're are toys, not the other way around.

    As far as a global government creating peace, it'd be quite the other way around. The more government the less freedom.

    A global power only ensures that when the tyrant gets into office and performs a coup--and it would be only a matter of time--you have less of a chance of escaping it.
