While, as always, I remain skeptical and simultaneously open to all possibilities, I feel that people tend to almost want there to be a grand
scheme for a literal global government, because that scenario is a more exciting or psychologically frightening/reaffirming/obvious one than other
possibilities may be.
I believe it is possible that a literal government need not encompass the globe in order for a system of control responsible for policy and decision
making to be effectively global in scope and power. Indeed, it would make their job easier, and allow greater flexibility. Global agendas - if
they exist - are just that; global.
You won't (at least not easily or probably) be able to direct the world unless you play nations/organizations/people/whatever - which would never
willingly (at least not in our life times) coalesce into such an amalgamation - unwittingly against one another in such a way that the ultimate
policies of this effective (but not necessarily literal) global "government" are achieved.
I'm not saying there may not be a point at which those objectives are so close at hand or inevitable that such a "government" would reveal itself
and declare its intentions to a certain extent. I just find it difficult to imagine them admitting the nature of their machinations or revealing how
their levers of control function - as would be necessary if a literal "one world government" were openly declared - without the people of the
nations played against one another for so long being incited to violence on a global scale. And it is difficult to rule when people know what's up,
or are then on a rampage and screaming for blood.
An event of genuinely catastrophic and global proportions would be necessary for people to accept this (or be deceived into accepting this as many
profess will come to pass). 9-11, an invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, and a possible strike against Iran, don't qualify for that in my humble
opinion, and if the plan is to expand those conflicts into a global catastrophy, then I don't see any signs that it's working thus far.
But, again, anything is possible.
