Who said anything about any existing system like the UN as being involved. This would be a contract agency that is strictly limited to a specific action menu that is part of the contract signed by all nations. It is a pact or contract situation. The deciding body would be one person per member nation and they all have a simple up or down vote on a decision to action. The whole thing could be run by an AI for that matter. Pure logic and reasoning without emotion or the influence of avarice could be the only trigger for military action.


I doubt the world will put its collective trust and politics into one entity controlling all the world's armed forces. Not going to happen, ever. So we are left with the UN. Which just doesn't work. In fact, if the World could reach this point where we trusted enough in each other to support a GDF, we infact would not need it, would we?

ok so it would be a "black water" type of contract security pay your dues and join or "TS" your on your own , no i do not like it UN and NATO is ok for what they are, and what would make them pay up front for security?

If there is no threat or is this for country's like Israel Iran Egypt Cuba Libya, so China would not be part of it nor would most of South America, how would Russia fit in?

Interesting idea, as it sounds very much like what the EU did to prevent war in Europe (amongst its Member-States anyways), but I think that on the global stage there is unfortunately too much to be lost in the protection of trade routes and economic hegemony for something like this to catch on.

Explain how you would be "giving up your freedom"?

They could use the existing military in each country instead of conscripting people.

I'm not pro-NWO but I do want to gain a better understanding of what is at risk if such a movement were to get off the ground. Would it be a 100% negative thing or would the benefits be 50/50, 75/25 or what?

How much freedom do we have now as the defacto global police force? We are already a police state. I am discussing distribution of the cost and responsibility for global security to the rest of the globe.

edit on 9-3-2011 by wayouttheredude because: dyslexic


No y ou are ignoring the way the world actually works.

A common 'world police' could not fight wars, and not only that, but what do you suppose they would be more interested in protecting...the corporations that provide their money, or the freedoms of the civilian?


Who would decide to employ these forces ? what would their objective be?This is extraordinarily dangerous. So a motion is made by Chinese leaders to "global world command that those darn Americans are "aggressive" again by securing their southern border and World Commands sends in 20,000 malaysian and nepalese conscripts. to "stabilze the situation.. ever wonder where the" Blue helmets" =trargets ideology comes from?

This! Please tell me you are not idiotic enough to believe the superficial global peace b.s.("captain") This will be sold under(??) Americans will be naturally reluctant to shoot at u.s.national guard forces. Foreign u.n.forces" will be seen and treated as invaders..

Duh! Of course it is. but it is only going to make it official what has been unofficialy since the beginning of WWII. The US is the unoffical cop of the world. (Agree or not, like it or not, it is true in the true meaning of the word. Not that a police force need be perfect, mind you.)

Two functions, first to thwart China in some of its expansionist moves. So that aspect will draw in the Russians and their associated friends into the fold. OK. Three functions, here's the second: to draw in the Asians that are afraid of China. Finally, it is to complete the circle of power needed by the UN to formalize the NWO, that would be the third function.

Why all of this is happening is far beyond a UN police force with bite as the master control for the NWO. I seriously suspect that the ETs are telling our various leaders to "Make it so" ...or else. Honestly, that is the only thing that makes sense. No Western country wants to share (read as give away) its wealth,erase borders, deny nationalism and promote multiculturalism. Those are not human traits, not even liberals usually go that far! (Yes, tongue in cheek but not joking.)

Conscription might not have been the right word to use. The idea is that there would be a requirement of all member nations to provide a per capita force of half of one percent of their population. It also requires a half of one percent of the member nation's GDP. In this way a nation with a poor GDP would not be burdened with a global tax more than they could bare. If they have a larger population than their GDP would reflect they would have more members in the GDF then smaller nations by population but with higher GDP.

The GDF would also pay these people as professional soldiers so there is no conscription in the classic sense. These member nations would get some percentage of their contribution back in the form of their nation's income tax to their GDF soldiers.

yes i agree and it does sound familiar, as well as the thought as seen here www.historylearningsite.co.uk... just one line sticks out

Police State was to ensure that everybody did as they were told
does this not seem the same as the op's?

I do not think so. This would prevent a Nazi state that was aggressive from domination of another state. No real comparison. Think free association by contract instead of force of the rule of the few.

I think the savings of the system would attract the Chinese Russians and all other nations. If the US signed on as pilot member this would mean a huge decrease in the US military budget. China and Russia would benefit from our decreased expenditure as well as other nations. Here is a list of per capita expenditure by nation.

As you can see this idea could drop the per capita spending on defense of the world by quite a large figure. Even those nations that currently spend only 1% - 2% would save millions or billions per year.

This idea is for global security that is paid on a contract basis. Poor nations can provide more soldiers and gain revenue from their income. Rich nations can save the cost of much larger security forces by distribution of the cost of global police actions paid equally by all member nations.

I am sure that such a proposal would do away with the "militia" rationale for the 2nd Amendment..altho that would not negate the natural rights of man.

I think that militias would be allowed as internal security to each member state so it would not consider such militia programs and internal deployments.
