blished the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. In 1948 the General Agreement of Tariffs and Trade (GATT) followed along with a new wave of regional organizations. It instituted a code of rules by which countries could trade, as well as a forum for resolving trade disputes. It aimed to liberalize world trade through the reduction of trade barriers. Nations coordinated their trade policies through the GATT.
Globalization is the merging of the nation’s systems and governmental processes around the globe. Social, economic, and political trends are bringing about this unification. Even religion is following the global path through organizations such as the World-Wide Council of Churches.
Federalists believe that sovereign nations are no longer able to solve the world’s problems. They regard national sovereignty as a traditional, outmoded governmental precept of the past. European federalists view the sovereign nation state as an unfit model for organizing relations between European states. By pooling specific areas of sovereignty nations can prevent war and gain the ability to influence their futures.
The report views the Union as world community made up of nations. This will lead it to a world government one day. The Trust produced a set of proposals on how the EU might forge federal institutions. They suggested instituting a European federal bank to underpin economic and monetary union. The Trust also proposed a common security and foreign policy. The Union adopted all of these proposals, and they are now Union policy.
The EU regards Jean Monnet as the father of the EU. In 1976, the European Council made Jean Monnet an “Honorary Citizen of Europe.” In March of 1979, Monnet died.
The federalists sought to improve and strengthen world institutions such as the UN, the IMF, and the World Bank. Globalists attempted to turn the UN into a world authority. While these efforts failed, Jean Monnet reiterated their vision for the European Union. Federalists viewed the EU as an indirect route to achieve their end.
While looking for the secret society, these end-time watchers have failed to discover a European political ideological movement. This group does not operate in secret but out in the open. They have influenced the European Union’s evolution. Their teachings provide a blueprint for global rule. These individuals believe in European “federalism”-the ideological term for one-worldism. They are European federalists.
In my writings, I teach about European federalism, which is the ideological term for globalists who aim for a one-world government and believe that the EU should act as the cornerstone for uniting the globe. Federalism is the ideology that drives the Union, and many key leaders within the EU have come from Federalist ranks.
