A Non-Satanic "New World Order"
It has been stated that, while the conservative elites want a global economy, the liberal ones want a global government. The latter is regarded as being a threat to freedom and sovereignty. I would like to propose an arrangement that is no threat to either of these things and that not only does not result in "a brave new world" or any other totalitarian scenario but enhances liberty and benefit for every person involved.
I propose these two conditions: Each place having the right to its own institutions and its own character; and a free flux of people among the places so that they can find the place that works for them. That way, freedom will be upheld at both the national and the individual levels. Each country will be able to define its character and institutions; and individuals will be able to move around the world to find a country to which they are the most suited.
This is, to a limited extent, the status quo already; and I want to see it taken to a greater extent. Right now, moving among the countries is a possibility for only some people. It should be a possibility for everyone. The more this is the possibility, the greater the beenfit at every level. If a country insists on being nasty to its people, then this arrangement will allow people to get out of the country and to continue getting out of the country until the country changes its ways. If a country chooses to be good to its people, then this arrangement will result in more people getting into the country. And this will result in people benefitting everywhere, in countries that choose to be good to their people winning, and in all countries being incentivized to treat their people right.
The positive achieved will be twofold. One is that people will have real freedom - meaning, a real choice of lifestyles - a choice which they will find expressed by different institutions and different cultures in different places in the world. The other is that the governments and the non-government powers in the countries of the world will be put under competitive pressure to treat their people right. And this will benefit people at every level, resulting both in greater choice for them and in better conditions for them in every country. A regime that is horrible to the people will not be able to survive for long in such a situation. All countries will have a very present and very real incentive to have a good government and to treat their people right.
While there are people who howl about the "Satanic New World Order conspiracy," this is in no way satanic nor is this a threat to anyone's sovereignty. This is a real-world way to maximize liberty and well-being. Each place would get to have its own character and institutions; and people would be free to move between places to find a place that works for them. And in this mix, it is the countries that treat their people the best that would come out winners, and all other countries would be put under competitive pressure to improve how they treat their citizens (or, otherwise, they would see their citizens leave in large numbers and see their country weakened as a result).
The world will continue to exist; the question is, in what form. Any world order that is created will be binding on its participants. I put it forth that a world in which there is both national sovereignty and individual freedom of movement will result in both freedom and benefit being maximized. Each place will have its own character; people will be free to find a place that works best for them; and every country and every government will be put under competitive pressure to be good to its people, resulting in people benefitting all across the board.
In this model, we can see maximum liberty and maximal benefit. Each country decides its identity; each person decides which country's identity is most appropriate to themselves. The countries that treat their people right get to grow in size and power, while the other countries are made to improve the way they treat the people if they want to keep their people. The best of ideas behind America get to shape political reality. And the world order created is the same one that has created the American federal system, but applied on a larger scale and to greater global effect.
