Current activities to implement global governance

Very few people realize that there is a massive global effort to create world government and religion within the next few years. Although it has been underway for decades, the plan to create global governance (a euphemism for world government) will be be making its public debut during the United Nations Millennium Summit starting September 6, 2000. The Millennium Summit has been planned since 1995 and will bring together the largest group of heads of state in one meeting in history, according to the Summit's promotional material. Over 150 heads of state will be represented. 

To institute global governance, a new United Nations Charter must be ratified. The September meeting was originally supposed to gather all the world leaders together to sign this new Charter, according to the United Nations Commission on Global Governance in their 1995 report, Our Global Neighborhood. For a variety of reasons, the effort for the United Nations to propose a new Charter for signing has failed. Instead, Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs) are being used to accomplish a similar role. 

By violently protesting globalization, the protests and riots in Seattle (#1 photo) during the World Trade Organization (WTO) were designed to create the urgency and momentum necessary to force the world leaders at the Millennium Summit to create a new United Nations Charter. These NGOs met in Montreal the following week and were told by United Nations Secretary General that the NGO movement "was the best thing that has happened to the organization [United Nations] in a long time." NGOs have rioted and protested three times since Seattle, at Davos, Switzerland (#2 photo) in late January and Bangkok, Thailand (#3 photo) in mid-February and again during the April 16, 2000 World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) meetings in Washington, D.C. (#4 photo) Led by 10,000 members of various labor unions, they first protested the China full trade bill before Congress to permit with the U.S. The protests were then joined by other more radical NGOs who will again protest the WTO, World Bank, IMF and other international institutions.

The United Nations hosted a Millennium Forum for NGOs from April 22 to the 26 to prepare their demands for the Millennium Summit. As with the recommendations from the UN Commission on global governance, these NGOs will demand more open international institutions, inclusion of the WTO into the United Nations and a new parliamentary body within the United nations for themselves. Patterned after the NGO Charter 99-A Charter for Global Democracy the NGOs demand:

  1. consolidation of all international agencies under the direct authority of the United Nations;
  2. regulation by the U.N. of all transnational corporations and financial institutions;
  3. independent source of revenue for the U.N. such as the "Tobin tax" and taxes on aircraft and shipping fuels, and licensing the use of the global commons;
  4. eliminate the veto power and permanent member status on the Security Council;
  5. authorize a standing U.N. army;
  6. require U.N. registration of all arms and the reduction of all national armies "as part of a multilateral global security system" under the authority of the United Nations;
  7. Require individual and national compliance with all U.N. "Human Rights" treaties;
  8. Activate the International Criminal Court, make the International Court of Justice compulsory for all nations, and give individuals the right to petition the courts to remedy social injustice.
  9. Create a new institution to establish economic and environmental security by insuring sustainable development;
  10. Create a new International Environmental Court.
  11. Adopt a declaration that climate change is an essential global security interest that requires the creation of a "high-level action team" to allocate carbon emission based on equal per-capita rights;
  12. Cancellation of all debt owed by the poorest nations, global poverty reductions, and for "equitable sharing of global resources," as allocated by the United Nations.

The Millennium Summit of heads of state contained 2½ days of plenary sessions and small group roundtables. The plenary sessions were open to the press where numerous heads of state, starting with President Clinton, shared their visions of the future and how the UN can contribute to that vision. The real work, however, was accomplished behind closed-doors within the small group roundtables. These roundtables were not open to the press, nor were summaries of their conclusions be available to the press. Instead, the comments and conclusions were put into a report called the Millennium Declaration in which a Special Commission will make recommendations on how to rewrite the UN Charter. When the time comes, we will attempt to inform readers of what is decided behind these closed doors.

Just before the Millennium Summit met, the Millennium Summit on Peace of Religious and Spiritual Leaders convened from August 28 to 31 at the UN headquarters to unify religions around the common idea of peace. It advised the UN on spiritual issues and will eventually condemn any religious belief that does not have all-inclusive doctrines. The long-term impact of this meeting will result in an an attack on all monotheistic beliefs, especially that of Christianity. The second meeting from August 28 to 30 included over a thousand NGOs at the UN and focused on how the NGOs can "participate in the decision-making process" of the UN." This will most likely result in a proposed "People's Assembly" that would be created along side of the UN General Assembly. The People's Assembly will not represent the peoples of the world, but rather the leftist, socialist, NGOs themselves. Finally, there was Mikhail Gorbachev's State of the World Forum that met from September 2-10 which served as an intense lobbying effort to get the heads of state at the Millennium Summit to buy into the agenda of Global Governance, which includes changing the UN Charter.

Immediately after the Millennium Summit, the UN General Assembly put forth a 179 item agenda to be completed in its 55th Session, 14 of which directly dealt with establish global governance (i.e. world government). These 14 agenda items included:

  1. Specific reform measures and proposals
  2. How specifically to strengthen the UN system
  3. General and complete Disarmament
  4. Sustainable development and global economic cooperation
  5. Resolve the Mideast crisis
  6. Globalization and developing interdependence
  7. International crime prevention and criminal justice
  8. Various human rights issues, including those of women and children
  9. Solving the financial problem of the UN
  10. Establishing the principles and norms of international law within the new international economic order
  11. Establish the International Criminal Court
  12. Review and take action on the Special Committee's report on changing the UN Charter to implement global governance
  13. The UN's role in developing a new international partnership
  14. UN role in promoting a new global human order

Once completed, the role of the UN in global governance will be fully known.
