Billionaire Bill Gates called for â€œa kind of global governmentâ€ this week, arguing that the creation of such a system would be needed to combat major issues such as â€œclimate change.â€
Speaking with Germanyâ€™s â€œSÃ¼ddeutsche Zeitungâ€ newspaper Tuesday, Gates decried the fact that a proper United Nations system has failed to materialize as planned.
â€œYou can make fun of it, but in truth it was sad how the conference in Copenhagen is run, how individual who behave like the UN system failed,â€ Gates said according to an English translation in the Huffington Post.
Gates went on to stress his position further, stating that a global government was â€œbadly neededâ€ in order to combat an array of issues ailing the planet.
â€œTake the UN, it has been created especially for the security in the world. We are ready for war, because we have taken every precaution. We have NATO, we have divisions, jeeps, trained people,â€ Gates said. â€œBut what is with epidemics? How many doctors do we have as much planes, tents, what scientists? If there were such a thing as a world government, we would be better prepared.â€
The billionaire made headlines last week after introducing a plan to implement a cashless system in multiple third-world countries, a program that would undoubtedly give financial elites total control over monetary systems.
