In 2005, then Secretary General of the U.N. Kofi Annan observed that while the U.N. previously dealt only with governments, in the interest of global peace and prosperity the United Nations should extend its reach and partner directly with the business community, civil society and international organizations. He envisioned the elimination of state sovereignty and nationalism to make way for global citizenship, ushering in a borderless world run by a U.N.-centered, international bureaucracy. This world government with international institutions, global citizenship and a world code of justice would supplant individual nation-state governments to bring about a better world free of hunger, conflict and inequities.
However idealistic Annan’s vision, the reality would be darker and misshapen, like the grotesque creature put together by Dr. Frankenstein. Signing away of sovereignty and independence is a surefire route to tyrannical subordination of freedom and individual liberty. One-size-fits-all precepts imposed on all nations by an international body would ignore regional needs, interests and values. World governance would eliminate the ability and self-determination of nations to protect their interests and act for the good and security of their people. These functions would be abdicated to an international body without direct consent of the people.
