This is post here is for all of you who think, and hope, that a One World Government will solve all the worlds problems.
Firstly, I am not here to put you down if you think that one world government is a great idea. After World War One, many people felt this way also.
"We must, at all costs, prevent another World War", was the prevailing thoughts of the day after World War One. So, everyone came together and
formed a loose association of governments that would supposedly, by consent, “Keep the Peace.” As you know, it didn't work. An axis of foreign
powers came together and started another war, World War Two. Then, after that war, people once again said, “This is enough!” and clamored once
again for a stronger union of governments that would come together to prevent the next world war. Guess what, that creation, The United Nations, is
only a partial success at best. Each government still only does what it wants unless they are threatened with war from the other consenting members.
War by consent of the UN members is just a formality now.
And so, the people say, we need an even stronger world government that will do even more to make the world a better place. But guess what? Not only
will it not work, but it will never work.
How can I say this? It is simple. It is because of history and the nature of the human condition. The world has, by choice, forgotten the fact that
there actually have been one world governments, not once, but many different times in history. I will now list the problems that these governments had
and the realities of what dominating governments do. As well, if you don't take my word for it, then even the Bible highlights, all too well, the
flaws of governments and the absolute flaw that one world government would be anything but a disaster.
Problem number one is the lack of a unified cause. You see, every government on earth exists supposedly for the benefit of its people. Even communism
is supposedly a necessary evil designed to administer the goods of the nation such that it provides a maximum benefit for the people of that nation.
However, the people who run government never have "the benefit of the people" as thier true goal. instead, they have either thier own beneift and or
the benefit of thier supporters as thier goal, and therefore the goal of government. Government must be run by persons, and those persons are never
perfect. That is the reason that government never actually does "only" what is best for the country.
In fact, those persons who often run government are very often anything but perfect. The fact that government itself is a form of concentrated power
makes it a constant target of evil people. Evil people want power and control and so they almost always seek to control government. So, when they
achieve the power of government their goals for government (and the nation) are almost always for their own benefit at the expense of the people. This
will always be the case until either government is run by saints, or by a benign computer that is not susceptible to the human emotions of greed,
arrogance, pride, ect, ect.
The flawed idea of One World Government is in thinking that by simply having only one government then you would therefore by default have "only the
best” government. History has actually show the opposite to be true. Rome, China, Persia, the mongols, and even the Saxons and the Myans have
basically had a version of a one world government. Did any one of them last? Did any one of them have the peoples best interest first? Of course not.
Government exists to serve the people, but in almost every single case today, and in entire recorded history, government by its actions serves the few
at the expense of the people. Government is a human flaw of action, not a flaw of structural design. Every single government fails the people because
of the flawed people who gain control of government. Evil strives and wins control of government, pure and simple. That is why all the people of the
world suffer, and have always suffered at the hands of government.
The only limiting factor of this evil of government is the power and control of the government itself. It is only by limiting governments size and
area of control that you thereby limit the evils that government can do. This is why we have states in the united states. It is to limit and fracture
government such that governments themselves can only do a limited amount of harm to the people.
Government is, and always has been, a necessary evil. Concentrating government only make that evil stronger to control and more dangerous to the
people. Forming many governments, and limiting them as much as possible, is the best, and only way, to control the evils of government.
