Gordon Brown is talking about what many people are calling global governance, or when they aren't mincing words, global government. Similar calls are made from Council on Foreign Relations members like Fareed Zakaria, a regular contributor for propaganda clearing house "Newsweek" in articles like "Writing the Rules for a New World."
Global problems, they argue, need global solutions. Global problems like the H1N1 Swine Flu pandemic, which later turned out to be over-hyped by industry insiders. Global problems like the current economic melt down perpetrated by the very financial institutions and regulatory organizations seeking additional authority and consolidation with even less oversight than before. Global problems like "terrorism" and "conflict" that the globalists are firmly, undoubtedly behind. Indeed, they are proposing global government to solve these global problems, they themselves are making.
These are immensely powerful people, the remnants of the European empires and the by-product of America's "Manifest Destiny" seeking global consolidation through these "global institutions".'
