DR. MICHAEL YOUSSEF: A One-World Government – Utopia or Hell on Earth?


As global politics becomes even more convoluted, many utopian-minded people are pushing for more global governance organizations to help order the billions of people around the world. Although it may seem that the idea of ​​one world government goes hand in hand with the rise of universal connectivity via social media, the pressure for a global system of governance has been growing steadily for years.

The movement towards a one world government started with a few individuals in the 20th century. Sir John Boyd Orr, a Scottish physician and politician, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1949 for his research into improving global food production. He donated all of the prize money to organizations working for a united world government.

In his Nobel Prize acceptance speech, he said, “We are now physically, politically and economically one world…Absolute national sovereignty of nations is no longer possible. As difficult as it may be to achieve, some form of world government, with agreed international law and means of law enforcement, is inevitable.

In 1950, James Paul Warburg, chairman of the Council of Foreign Relations, told a United States Senate subcommittee, “We will have world government whether we like it or not. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest.

More recently, Lord Christopher Monckton, who was scientific adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, reported on the goals of the 2009 UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen:

A world government will be created. The word “government” actually appears as the first of the three objectives of the new entity. The second objective is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to the countries of the third world… And the third objective of this new entity, this government, is the execution… [Delegates discussed] set up a world government so they can shut down the West, shut down democracy and end freedom all over the world.

Billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates said he was disappointed that the Copenhagen conference failed in his goal of establishing a world government. In an interview with Süddeutsche Zeitung, Germany’s national daily newspaper based in Munich, Gates said:

We have global problems and urgent needs. But the way we run the world isn’t super efficient. Advantages and disadvantages are distributed unfairly… We always have army divisions ready for war. But what about disease control? How many doctors do we have? How many planes, tents, scientists? If there was a world government, we would be better prepared [to fight disease outbreaks].

Even the Catholic Church is involved in the effort to impose a world government on the world. In 2011, Vatican cardinals issued a document calling for a “World Authority” (with a capital A) to impose controls on the global economy. The Vatican said:

It is the task of today’s generation to recognize and consciously accept these new global dynamics for the realization of a universal common good. Of course, this transformation will take place at the cost of a gradual and balanced transfer of part of the powers of each nation to a world authority… This evolution will not take place without anguish and suffering… Only a spirit of harmony which rises above divisions and conflicts will enable humanity to be truly one family and to conceive of a new world with the creation of a world public Authority at the service of the common good.

What none of these proponents of a one-world government seem to consider, let alone have an answer to, is this question: How do we ensure that this “world authority” rules wisely and benevolently? These ardent utopians make the rash assumption that their world government will be run by people of goodwill. But history shows that great governments tend to produce either clumsily inefficient bureaucracies or ruthlessly oppressive dictatorships.

During the pandemic, we have seen how easily “global governance” organizations like the World Health Organization can be bent to the will of a coercive power like communist China. Globalized power inevitably leads to globalized corruption and oppression.

Massive concentrations of power tend to attract narcissistic personalities who are determined to use that power for their own selfish ends. A world government would be the greatest government mankind has ever seen. What guarantees do the globalists offer that their utopian vision will not lead to a dystopian hell on earth dominated by totalitarian rulers?

Revelation 13 tells us, “The beast [the Antichrist] received a mouth to speak words of pride and blasphemy and to exercise his authority for forty-two months…And authority was given unto him over every kindred, people, tongue, and nation” (Revelation 13:5, 7) . The oppressive rule of the Antichrist is what the globalists are working towards – whether they know it or not.

Every freedom-loving person everywhere must reject the attempts of governments, non-governmental organizations and multinational corporations to lead us into the abyss of a globalist hell on earth.
