Who Wants A Global Government?

Vernon Coleman

Those who warn that there are politicians and bankers who want to create a world government are usually dismissed as `cranks' and `conspiracy theorists'. Talk of a New World Order is sneered at as an example of paranoia. Criticisms of the Bilderbergers are laughed off as of no account.

But are these fears really so crazy?

In 1996, the United Nations published a 420-page report entitled `Our Global Neighbourhood' which outlined a plan for global governance. In 2001, when UN Secretary General Kofi Annan received the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of the United Nations, he said: `In the twenty-fitst century I believe the mission of the United Nations will be defined by a new, more profound awareness of the sanctity and dignity of every human life, regardless of race or religion. This will require us to look beyond the framework of states, and beneath the surface of nations or communities.'

What was Annan talking about, if not a global government?

Many politicians (including Mikhail Gorbachev, former President of the Soviet Union) have argued that we need a world government. Gorbachev and others contend that we need a global institution to deal with global warming!

In September 2005, Bill Clinton organised a `Global Initiative to bring together world leaders to `make a difference'.

There are a number of organisations trying to create a world government. The United Nations, the G8 and the European Union are just a few of them.
