Indeed. I have always thought Brave New World was much closer to how things would actually develop.

A one world government is like communism, it sounds good on paper. (sort of).

The whole idea comes from I think the desire to rid things like dictatorships, mass hunger, and such. But thats why we have the UN, and unfortunately in my opinion they don't do very much.

I read there was a lot of heated debate between the US and European Bilderberg attendees around the Iraq war issue.

The biggest crooks are hiding in plain view - Paulson, Cheney, Eric Prinz and the rest.
I agree with this. I think that whole conspiracy concerning men in Mercedes meeting in swank hotels to plan our futures is nonsense. Most of the "harm" we face we bring upon ourselves by allowing the people we elect get away with their mistakes / greed.

No! People in one country can't even agree on what the government should be, the whole world would be a bigger mess. The only way it could be done is via a brutal dictatorship like the Emperor in Star Wars.

Now don't be giving anyone any ideas.

How about a global crisis caused by nuclear war, monetary collapse, climate, cyber-terrorism or the return of disco?
