One Global Government

Revelation 17:7 And the angel said to me, Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and ten horns.

8 The beast that you saw was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 9 And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits. 10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space. 11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition. 12 And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength to the beast.

14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. 15 And he said to me, The waters which you saw, where the whore sits, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 18 And the woman which you saw is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.

But the one pervading thought was, wherever I went, how badly government was broken

The USA will have no serious competition for many generations, China is getting old before it will get rich and Russia is just plain declining, especially in population. Viet Nam will have more people in not many many more years. Joel Kotkin, in his "The Next Hundred Million," provides some reinforcement of this superiority. Thus, the presence of only one superpower can provide some stability as the world attempts to save itself.

The European Union (EU) formed in 1993 with the Maastricht Treaty, seeing how well our united concept succeeded. Mind you, they are today a mess, but, still only a teenager, and is a work in progress. We have almost exactly the same Gross Domestic product and they have 500 million people to our 308 million.

Let's for the sake of discussion say that someday the world has one government. Won't this be like the United Nations, but worse?
