NEVERMIND BEING UNABLE TO GET EUROPE TO ACCEPT THE EU...:

And now for a world government (Gideon Rachman, December 8 2008, Financial Times)

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.


...they can't even hold Spain, Belgium, Italy and Britain together.
