Between the financial crisis, the in-coming Obama administration, and the terror attacks in Mumbai, there is too much news of this sort to keep up with.  Ideas that would have raised a skeptical eyebrow in the past are now being reported in the mainstream media with unflinching ease.  It would have been crazy six months ago to mention a  “new world order,” to do so you would be guaranteed to open yourself up to being labelled with the pejorative term “conspiracy theorist.”  Yet, now we are hear calls for “global governance” and a “new world order” almost everyday by economists and world leaders.  Should we all just resign ourselves to a “new world order,” much as we have America’s move to fascism?  [“Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power.” – Benito Mussolini.]

And now for a world government

  have never believed that there is a secret United Nations plot to take over the US. I have never seen black helicopters hovering in the sky above Montana. But, for the first time in my life, I think the formation of some sort of world government is plausible.

A “world government” would involve much more than co-operation between nations. It would be an entity with state-like characteristics, backed by a body of laws. The European Union has already set up a continental government for 27 countries, which could be a model. The EU has a supreme court, a currency, thousands of pages of law, a large civil service and the ability to deploy military force.

So could the European model go global? There are three reasons for thinking that it might.

First, it is increasingly clear that the most difficult issues facing national governments are international in nature: there is global warming, a global financial crisis and a “global war on terror”.

Second, it could be done. The transport and communications revolutions have shrunk the world so that, as Geoffrey Blainey, an eminent Australian historian, has written: “For the first time in human history, world government of some sort is now possible.” Mr Blainey foresees an attempt to form a world government at some point in the next two centuries, which is an unusually long time horizon for the average newspaper column.

But – the third point – a change in the political atmosphere suggests that “global governance” could come much sooner than that. The financial crisis and climate change are pushing national governments towards global solutions, even in countries such as China and the US that are traditionally fierce guardians of national sovereignty.
