I want to ask you a hypothetical question. Please take seriously the question and use your intelligence to answer the question.
Let’s say you want to create a one-world government. How would you go about doing that?
My answer is that it would make sense to do the following:
1. Gather like-minded people to formulate a plan. The planners should include the political-economic-cultural elites from the world’s most powerful countries for the simple reason that those are the people who, being powerful, can either (a) thwart the plan; or (b) help see the plan’s implementation to fruition.
2. It is always better, from cost-benefit calculation, that instead of using force to coerce, that the people of the world willingly embrace one-world government.
3. To do that, they would need be persuaded, brainwashed, indoctrinated, and frightened into not just acquiescing but wanting a one-world government.
4. The tools of persuasion should include the notion that humanity is confronted with problems of such a scale and scope (Global Warming! Climate Change! Over-population! Global Financial Crisis! Imminent Economic Collapse!) that only a unified coordinated response by all humanity will do. That means the world’s many countries and governments will have to join together and become one.
5. Obviously, a one-world government can’t be created overnight. Logically, a stepping stone toward that eventuality should be the amalgamation of separate countries and governments into regional entities, such as an European Union (EU) and a North American Union.
Well, surprise, surprise! We do have such a group of like-minded elites! And the group did formulate a plan!
It’s called the Club of Rome (see Sagebrush’s post, “Super Nation#5: Eurasia“). Here’s the Club’s current map of the 10 Super Nations that should/will be formed from the current 207 sovereign states or countries in the world:
It is that context that makes the following news alarming.
Macer Hall reports for Express.co.uk, May 4, 2012, that a group of senior Eurocrats are secretly plotting to replace current President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy with a super-powerful EU president who will move to abolish Britain as a sovereign state. In effect, Britain will be ruled from Brussels, not London.
Express.co.uk is not some crackpot supermarket tabloid, but the home site of the Daily and Sunday Express — well-established and reputable UK newspapers. Express’ source for this plan is Lord David Stoddart, an independent Labour politician in the UK, unaffiliated with the Labour Party.
European Council President Herman Van Rompuy at an EU summit
Here are excerpts from Macer Hall’s article:
Senior Eurocrats are secretly plotting to create a super-powerful EU president to realise their dream of abolishing Britain, we can reveal.
A covert group of EU foreign ministers has drawn up plans for merging the jobs currently done by Herman Van Rompuy, president of the European Council, and Jose Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission.
The new bureaucrat, who would not be directly elected by voters, is set to get sweeping control over the entire EU and force member countries into ever-greater political and economic union.
Tellingly, the UK has been excluded from the confidential discussions within the shady “Berlin Group” of Europhile politicians, spearheaded by German foreign minister Guido Westerwelle.
Opponents fear the plan could create a modern-day equivalent of the European emperor envisaged by Napoleon Bonaparte or a return to the Holy Roman Empire of Charlemagne that dominated Europe in the Dark Ages.
They are concerned that David Cameron’s coalition Government is doing nothing to prevent the sinister plot. The secret talks were uncovered by Independent Labour peer Lord Stoddart of Swindon. “This is a plot by people who want to abolish nation states and create a United States of Europe,” he said. “The whole thing is barmy. These people are determined to achieve their final objective.”
Tory backbench MP Douglas Carswell said: “It doesn’t matter how you arrange the offices of these technocrats, they are useless at arranging our lives for us and they are not elected so they have no legitimacy. “My worry is that the president will end up having the charisma of Van Rompuy and the economic management skills of Barroso.”
Euro-MP Paul Nuttall, of the UK Independence Party, said: “This is a truly ridiculous idea that must never be allowed to happen. It sounds as if they are trying to go back to the days of the Holy Roman Emperor.”
[...] Supporters of the move believe that the rival presidencies are undermining the EU’s ability to speak with a single voice. They argue that merging the two jobs will create a powerful European leader who is capable of pursuing the federalist dream of a united Europe which has been severely shaken by the eurozone crisis.
Lord Stoddart confirmed the existence of the plot thanks to a parliamentary written answer in the House of Lords. He asked Foreign Office ministers to reveal what they knew about the merger talks.
In response to his inquiry, Tory Foreign Office minister Lord Howell of Guildford said: “We are aware of one group of EU foreign ministers meeting on an informal basis to discuss a variety of issues related to the future governance of the EU. While the UK is not part of that group, we understand that one idea under discussion is a merger of the positions of president of the European Council and president of the European Commission.”
[...] Lord Stoddart said: “These sorts of informal discussions within the EU have a habit of rapidly being transferred into formal proposals. Since the [British] Government is not party to these discussions, its reservations are academic. Such a merger would represent a massive shift of power into the hands of a single, unelected bureaucrat. The Government should be taking this far more seriously and voicing its objections very strongly. The holder of this new office would be both Europe’s political and administrative leader, giving them far more powers than those given to the US president.“
