G20 leaders weigh 'new generation' of challenges to global government
World leaders examined at the weekend frameworks for global governance ahead of a G20 summit in Seoul, with UN chief Ban Ki-Moon stressing no single power could tackle key issues alone.
With the G20 meeting on November 11-12 set to be dominated by currency disputes and the threat of protectionist measures, the WPC theme of global governance in finance, the economy and politics was a timely issue.
There it is again - references to "global governance in finance, economy and politics". Thats pretty much everything isn't it?
Leaders needed to strive in particular "for a world economy that works for all people not just a fortunate minority," the UN chief said.
Almunia said the 27-member European Union had to strengthen its cohesion to contribute to global leadership but also allow emerging countries a greater voice in institutions like the International Monetary Fund.
A sub forum that focused on the meeting in Korea noted that "the issue of over-representation of the EU within the G20 needs to be addressed" as well.
Now thats interesting as well. Who would have figured? The "revived Roman Empire" has disproportionate representation on matters concerning this "world governance". That is definitely food for thought.
The G20 has emerged at the leading format for global discussions since it represents 66 percent of the world's population and 85 percent of its total output, but is nonetheless "a self-appointed group without any legal basis," Korean researcher Wonhyuk Lim and French associate Francoise Nicolas noted.
Good governance extends beyond governments, said Mohamed Ibrahim, the British-Sudanese founder of the Ibrahim Foundation that has established an African governance index that covers 88 aspects of the issue.
It seems like the calls for a global governance are coming from every direction these days. From the EU to the UN, the G20, international bankers, the IMF etc. It seems that "the nations" are ready to implement a world governance, beginning with a unified financial system (which we are close to now) and a single currency.
Similar to the peace attempts in the Middle East - only the central figure known biblically as the antichrist will successfully implement this system. We may see the early stages of this, but it will require the antichrist and the false prophet to implement on a world wide basis.
The road continues to be paved for these two figures. The closer we get to seeing implementation of this "world governance" then the closer the world is to seeing the rise of the antichrist. And the closer we get to the formal rise of the antichrist, the closer we are to the Rapture of the Church.
That simple fact makes watching all of these various developments very worthwhile.
