why do you think the American pharmaceutical industry is so big?

So? Building a Turning Machine is a COMPLETELY different animal than ruling over a government, much less a consolidated government consisting of the entire world.
Here's the thing about incrementalism (it's called working on margin, but whatever)
it NEVER gets to 100%. You can slowly restrict a freedom constantly, but at no point will the restriction ever get to the point that it is banned. It just doesn't work that way. A ban is too big of a jump from restriction.
Another problem I have with this CT is the idea of "a long enough period of time". Humans are NOTORIOUSLY short sighted. Like all of them. You, me, the poor, the left, the right, the rich, EVERYONE. I don't believe for a SECOND that the elite are less short sighted than any other human on this planet. To suggest as such is to suggest that they truly ARE better than everyone else, because they can think long term and more importantly consistently where others cannot.
This is why the likes of Icke pitch the idea of monsters really running the show. Because, deep down, we all know if we are all just humans, then the elite are JUST as clueless as the rest of us and don't know what they are doing either. It's fun to pretend, but if you use logic, it just doesn't make sense.

You know, I've always felt like it was weird that Christians would fear a one world government. Seems like a one world government would be the fastest way to obtain worldwide peace (something Christians are supposed to be desiring...). Even if the government itself was totalitarian, if there is no other government to war against, then there can be no war. That is unless you count civil wars or revolutionary wars, but then you may be able to argue that they are new governments.
That being said, OP you're wrong. The likelihood of a one world government in the near future or even our lifetimes is slim and none. We still have to worry about China and Russia integrating fully with this supposed government, and that isn't even worrying about the third world, the Muslim world, or areas of the world with little to no governance. Look how integrating the Muslim world with the west has been working out for us.
Heck the idea of a one world government is almost AGAINST what the "evil", rich businessmen would want. Under a one world government, all entities would be subjected to similar worker rights. How could the corrupt businessmen exploit the working classes of various third world parts of the world if the entire world was subjected to the same workers' rights laws?
An evil one world government just doesn't make any real sense, no matter what ways you slice it.

The New World Order is fully underway, they even warned you about it.
They may have painted the idea up to look nice and pretty, but the reality of the situation is dire.
The globalists created this financial mess and their solution is a one world government.
The same goes for the current mess we are in with foreign relations, illegal war, and terrorism.
All of these things have been wrapped up neatly into a perfect bouquet of problem, reaction, solution.
They own the media
they own the politicians
and in some cases, they own you.
Slavery is very easy to get away with when the slave thinks they are free.
Chains can be replaced with television, smart phones, games consoles, music, and entertainment.
Prisons can take the form of an office cubicle and real prisons can take the form of a homeless shelter.
People are being left behind. Left to rot. Whilst the rich get richer, the power brokers get more powerful, and the law gets more tyrannical.
It's like the plot to a bad movie, the kind people would watch in the 70's about a dystopian dream far into the future..
Apparently it's not enough to 'just obey the law' anymore. Apparently now they will come after you regardless.
Just for causing a nuisance to the state. We are starting to see it in the countries which were once renown for their democracy, fairness and liberty..
