GERMANY - The Closest We Have to World Government

Arno Froese

When thousands of delegates congregate each year for a G-20 summit that ends with a verbose closing statement that is short on substance, it invariably raises the question of what the point of it all is? Is the whole thing unnecessary? Should we get rid of it? After all, world leaders already come together on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly each autumn.

No. The further globalization progresses, the more it disempowers national governments, and the more important all formats become in which the concerns of humanity are addressed in a joint forum. If everything is global—crises and climate change, finance and refugees, terrorism and greenhouse gases—then mankind needs something resembling a world government. The G-20 represents 60 percent of the global population and 80 percent of economic power on the earth. And no matter how vague and ambiguous, there are consequences when it agrees on goals and principles for mankind. Its position is important. Even a nonbinding closing statement can still send a strong signal. There is always a symbolic aspect to politics, and it is fed us by images and stages., 8 July 2017

Arno's commentary

The G20 leads the way; extremely diverse, yet unified in objectives affecting the entire world. Quite fittingly, the author writes: “The further globalization progresses, the more it disempowers national governments.” How true and how frightening at the same time, for we know that world government will have to be established. The United Nations General Assembly does not represent the economic power, thus the G20—where meetings occur with heads of state and tens of thousands of delegates—is empowered by merchandise. It has the economic power, and the rest of the world will sooner or later succumb to all its demands.

What we do know from Scripture is that all the nations of the world aim for peace, prosperity, and security. It is for that combination, ISIS has largely been eliminated, although not completely.

The article concludes with these words: “The G-20 must be transformed from an exception to the norm, and to a regular cabinet meeting of a world government. And if that happens, it also ought to meet twice a year.” Welcome to globalism!
