Huffington Post Article on "One Global Government"... (plus a flashback to Dec. 2008)

Huffington Post writer Patrick Takahashi gives his thoughts regarding the merits of the world one day uniting under a One World Government. (excerpt below). Little by little, this concept, once seemingly mostly discussed by Conservative Christians, conspiracy theorists, and "right wing extremists" is gradually getting more attention in the mainstream media. Look for more mainstream websites and publications to discuss the issue as the biblically prophesied Kingdom of Antichrist begins to take shape in our world.

An excerpt from the Huffington Post article:

The trend, though, is clear. First a G3, then a universal government. This already is happening with one global economy. We are inextricably linked on one Planet Earth and our common environment. World peace will only come when there is one global government.

Let's for the sake of discussion say that someday the world has one government. Won't this be like the United Nations, but worse? Well, linear thinking would come to that conclusion. Let us surprise ourselves and be smarter this next time. Let us design a system that works.

Yet, it remains unclear what will trigger this ultimate consolidation. Certainly, the United Nation (UN) will not morph into this leading role. As the EU has 27 members, should the U.S. then have 50, not one vote? If you've ever had to work with this organization, you can only agree with me that the UN has perfected paralysis by analysis. Thus, the UN cannot be that unifying force.

So what is the simple solution on how, exactly, to attain one world government and Peace on Earth? I really don't know. Perhaps someone out there has a clue.

However, probably one of the most noteworthy articles in recent memory that speaks favorably of One World Government was when Financial Times writer Gideon Rachman's wrote his article "And Now For a World Government".  That was back in December 2008, and the article gathered a whole lot of attention and was one of the most downloaded and most commented-on pieces in the website's history. For those who've never seen it, take a look below.

Excerpt here:

I 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”.
