World Government (One)
This term, with a long and rich history of usage is currently seen with great suspicion among many conservatives - and hopefully among many progressives. For the former, this idea reflects an overreach of power that threatens sovereignty similar to growing federal power (aka Common Core)- when compared to state, family and individual freedoms. For these, the growing power of the United Nations and increasing talk of international law raise the spectre of a global power hegemony or “New World Order” that restricts freedoms - and literally fulfills Biblical prophecy .
For others, all this talk sounds paranoid and conspiratorial - with the aspiration towards larger order in the global system simply a reflection of growing cooperation among nations and a newfound sense of interdependency that will primarily lead to positive consequences in the world through enhanced collaboration and accountability to shared values.
