“global governance”

The plans for a ‘new world order’ are now coming out of the closet and being openly discussed, a marked change from the denials and credibility attacks of only being a conspiracy theory of ‘tinfoil hats’. 

A recent Financial Times article talks of spreading the EU model to the whole world.

Jacques Attali, an adviser to President Nicolas Sarkozy of France, argues that:  “Global governance is just a euphemism for global government.” As far as he is concerned, some form of global government cannot come too soon. Mr Attali believes that the “core of the international financial crisis is that we have global financial markets and no global rule of law”.

“So, it seems, everything is in place. For the first time since homo sapiens began to doodle on cave walls, there is an argument, an opportunity and a means to make serious steps towards a world government.” – Gideon Rachman 

The argument? we already have global warming, a global financial crisis and a global “war on terror”, so why not global government?

Rachman continues; “In general, the Union (EU) has progressed fastest when far-reaching deals have been agreed by technocrats and politicians – and then pushed through without direct reference to the voters. International governance tends to be effective, only when it is anti-democratic.

The world’s most pressing political problems may indeed be international in nature, but the average citizen’s political identity remains stubbornly local. Until somebody cracks this problem, that plan for world government may have to stay locked away in a safe at the UN.”
