When will the earth have a world government?
(Not) A world government
Excerpt from the book "75 Years of the UN - Power and Powerlessness of the United Nations", published by the Diplomatic Council.
Could a “world government” deal better with the challenges of a pandemic than the patchwork of nation states? Or to put it further: If there was a single government for the whole world, would we live in a better world?
The Greek philosophers and cosmopolitans such as Aristotle and Plato have already discussed this question. The philosophers of the modern age like Immanuel Kant and Friedrich Nietzsche also put their thoughts on paper. Albert Einstein also campaigned for a world government. It is alleged that US President Wilson was guided by the Chinese philosopher Kang Youwei and his 1902 work "Great Community" in founding the League of Nations. Bill Gates, billionaire and savior of the world, raised the question again in early 2021.
Conspiracies from Bilderberg to Rothschild
To this day, the question of whether a world government would work and, above all, act for the benefit of mankind remains unanswered. There is no world government - it is definitely not the UN. On the other hand, conspiracy theories about secret circles that rule the world have been circulating for a long time. Depending on their taste, this includes the participants of the Bilderberg Conference, the Group of Seven (G7), the global elites, high finance or even the Rothschilds. Depending on the source, these groups either strive for world domination or have even already taken it over. None of this is demonstrable.
UN is not a world government
The United Nations, the only verifiable organization whose structure would come close to a world government if it had powers, is in any case not a world government and not an independent world court. They are a reflection of the international community, nothing more and nothing less. What the countries that support the UN do not want will not happen in the UN either. Either such resolutions do not even come about, or they have the character of non-binding recommendations and are therefore basically worthless. Ultimately, the United Nations reflects the international relations between the powers of this world.
No democratically legitimized government
Incidentally, the UN would by no means be a democratically legitimized government, as the question of the democratic roots of the United Nations poses. In hardly any country that belongs to the United Nations does the population have a say in the UN.
The only UN body that can make binding decisions under international law, the Security Council, is historically determined by five states. On the other hand, the decisions that the community of all countries organized in the UN take in a democratic vote are non-binding.
Even UN General Secretary António Guterres admitted on the 75th anniversary of the United Nations in 2020: “The UN is not a federation of democracies. All countries of the world gather here - and that inevitably leads to contradictions. In addition, many organs still work exactly as they did 75 years ago. "
