John Fonte accurately identifies the coalition of institutions, interests and individuals that are promoting global governance and convincingly argues against their attempts to undermine the democratic nation-state.
Whatever formal structure it might have, a global government would, in effect, control our lives, with no possibility for us to exert any real influence on it. In such a world order, the concept of citizenship would rapidly become extinct. But democracy without citizens is a contradiction in terms, and the currently popular ‘world citizenship’ is only mystification and manipulation. My experience with one of its variants, the European Union, is not positive at all.
