French President Emmanuel Macron called for world government in a speech Friday, claiming it would avoid conflicts between competing superpowers.
“We need a single world order,” Macron told the audience at the ongoing Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Bangkok, Thailand.
“Are you on the U.S. side or the China side?” Macron asked rhetorically. “Because now, progressively, a lot of people would like to see that there are two orders in this world.”
“This is a huge mistake — even for both the U.S. and China,” he added after comparing the two superpowers to “big elephants” in the geopolitical “jungle.”
After his implicit call for the end of national sovereignty, Macron lectured nations to “respect” the other’s “sovereignty” while pursuing “inclusive, sustainable” policies together.
“A dynamic balance is the best way for nations to avoid being forced to choose between superpowers. Countries have to pursue inclusive, sustainable development to address inequality and instability,” he said. “You compete, all of us want to win. But you have to respect the sovereignty of the other one.”
“I am sure that the only way to have a win-win game is to cooperate and to accept that all the members of the different regions of this world, will make their life easier and better at the end of the day,” he added.
Macron even claimed France doesn’t “believe in hegemony” despite just calling for a hegemonic “global order.”
“We don’t believe in hegemony. We don’t believe in confrontation. We believe in stability, and cooperation, to innovate together and deliver concrete and positive results for our people everywhere. Thank you for your attention and you can count on France. Thank You,” he said.
Macron has been relatively open about his support for a New World Order, having proclaimed in August that the “end of abundance” had come to France in the name of preserving “democracy” amid the Ukraine conflict.
European aid to Ukraine is occurring simultaneously with its implementation of the World Economic Forum’s “Great Reset” blueprint of cutting off fossil fuels and farming in the name of “sustainable development.”
