China while maintaining its strict Communist Government has allowed business and trade to become such a necessity that it has no choice but to grow as part of a global community or revert to being a poor isolated nation.
The U.S. is leading the way in getting the nations of the world to unite without borders by way of free trade, massive immigration both legal and illegal and trying to convince all other nations to join in on the fight to save the planet from Global Warming.
NAFTA opened the doors to eliminating borders by opening up trade between willing countries and creating a more global economy rather than economies separated by countries.
The Global Warming issue is to unite the world from projected destruction of its environment from rising seas and increasing amounts of Greenhouse Gas emissions. This issue is designed to unite the world's scientists and their perspective governments who fund them in the quest for alternative energy sources and ways and means of improving our current usage of fossil fuels.
America would be the most unresponsive to losing its identity to a world community. Thus, it became necessary to change the face of the country by allowing millions of immigrants both illegal and legal to take up residents here. By doing this the powers that are have changed the very face of American society from a basic majority of white Christians to one of various color and culture. Thus, we are now primed to accept being a global community rather than a single national entity.
I believe the period for accomplishing this coincides with events coming our way in 2012. If this is so, we may just make it to the finish line as a one world national body.
The events of 9-11 were deliberately orchestrated and carried out to unite the world against a common enemy. Although this enemy really is not defined by, a group of people per say it is an invisible idealism, which is not a physical form but rather an elusive frame of mind not identified by a particular country.
Thus, the puzzle is coming together.
