If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

So back in 2008, this guy thought the EU was a template for a New World Order.

Today, people are writing about how the EU is in danger of disintegrating.

How much closer are we now to a world government?

Not very.

Isn't there something about one world government in Revalations? Not going for debate, just think the 700 club might like this news if I'm remembering right.

Just look to the crisis with Greece and the EU and it quickly becomes apparent that it is not working out.
Britain just dodged an attempt by Conservative backbenchers to force a referendum on leaving the EU.
The financial implications of a "world government" requiring richer countires to support poorer ones really puts an end to a world government idea.
Not to mention the fact that countries like the US would never allow themselves to be "governed" in any way, shape, or form by any other country, or power.
They won't even allow their military to be under the command of other military commanders, or international contingents.
The failure of the League of Nations, the precursor of the UN is a great example of a "world power" not working.

We aren't close to a one world government. But I wouldn't say that the U.S. wouldn't let it happen. Our country is controlled by too many wimps as it is. The U.S. is full of wimps from the top on down.

How many national rulers are there in the world right now? How many of those will step aside to let one of them be the supreme ruler of the world? How many of them will abandon, or greatly compromise, their current laws and ways of doing things to allow a homogonized world-wide system?

When that happens, we'll see a single world government.

Either then or when one country uses enough weaponry to blast enough other governments to bits.

If Simon Bar Sinister couldn't do it, as much as he tried, how is anyone else going to do it?

Near where I live, there's a 10-year battle going on where a gated community is trying to secede from the town it is in. Ain't that going in the wrong direction for a world government?

That's what people used to call H.W. He didn't take kindly to it.

Back then the wimp factor wasn't so heavily embedded in most of them as it is now. I don't think the U.S. will ever shed the wimp factor now.

Actually I remember him. Not a bad guy. Made a few people's lives better, which in this day and age is saying something.

"Become"? As opposed to what exactly?
