The era of global government?

Prophecy Sign:  The coming one world government 



He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it.  The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. Daniel 7:23-24 NIV

The era of global government?
It's not just the G20 group of world leaders who are meeting. Also here are the heads of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank. There's also the associated organisations, such as the B20 (business), C20 (civil society), L20 (labour), T20 (think tanks), and Y20 (youth). With politicians, businesses, NGOs, labour groups, thinkers and the young, these look like the elements that could make up a future global government. Of course, we're not at that stage and may never get there. But, what has become evident is that global markets are more interconnected than ever, and that means that what happens in one part of the world economy affects others. 
Hypothetically, a global government could re-allocate, much as a federal or central government now does to help regions/provinces/states. It could also regulate global markets, address climate change, fight Ebola, etc. But, of course, who gets to run that government and how democratic it is would raise questions that are certainly far beyond the G20. Still, as the world becomes more interconnected, the questions over global governance will loom larger.

Supra-national border guard system on EU radar
The European Commission is looking into long-term plans to create an entirely new EU border guard service with an independent command and control centre. While details are scant, a EU source said setting up such a supra-national border agency that goes beyond the remit of the current EU border agency Frontex would be twenty years in the making. “We are talking about 2030 or 2035 so this is really a long term development,” noted the contact. A commission financed feasibility study completed over the summer has put forward a three-phase approach in creating the so-called European System of Border Guards.
