The United States of America is a federal republic consisting of 50 states, one federal district (Washington, D.C.). The European Union is a geo-political entity comprising 28 member states covering a large portion of the European continent. It has a long history of unions of various forms but the modern EU was only founded on 1 November 1993. The 1707 Acts of Union declared that the Kingdoms of England and Scotland were “United into One Kingdom by the Name of Great Britain” though the new state is also referred to in the Acts as the United Kingdom of Great Britain and the United Kingdom. The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), was a Marxist-Leninist state on the Eurasian continent that existed between 1922 and 1991. It was governed as a single-party state by the Communist Party with Moscow as its capital. A union of multiple subnational Soviet republics.
A federation of diverse groups of people is fragile. Imbalances in terms of power and contribution by the federation members inevitably result in unhappiness and dissent. Powerful and influential members expect greater voices and control. Anyone expecting equality of membership in such a union is delusional. The USSR ceased to exist on 26 December 1991 by declaration no. 142-H of the Soviet of the Republics of the Supreme Soviet of the Soviet Union. Twelve republics of the Soviet Union became independent and formed the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
Currently, the EU is experiencing an acute economic imbalance amongst its members. The economic tension could potentially fragment the EU. Elsewhere in the USA, “tens of thousands have put their names to secession petitions in 20 states, asking that they peacefully become independent from the rest of the country (Daily Mail). Tomorrow, Scotland votes to secede from the UK and may be on its way to become an independent state without the umbilical cords attached to UK. The rumblings of people to secede from a union grows louder by the day. News.com reported that Spain, Italy, Bosnia, and even Western Australia are possible candidates to take this path towards independence.
Two powerful forces are furiously competing in the turbulent world – one towards a One World Order, the others for balkanization. Going by history, the odds are for fragmentation to emerge the winner. A One World Order is inconceivable in such a chaotic world. But conspiracy pundits have a totally different view. The chaos is the prelude to peace that will be ushered in by a New World Order when man finally succumb to “terror” and accepts the New World Order under the dictatorship of a all-powerful anti-Christ personality. “Out of Chaos comes order” is a freemason Illuminati dictum and that fits into the End Time scenario alluded in the Bible. Odds may be against One world Order. Sometimes, the outlier wins.
And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
