“Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.” Mat 24:7

While most individual laws in America don't derive directly from the Ten Commandments, "the law" as a whole does.

Up until Nietzsche noted an existing reality by writing "God is Dead", the rules of the moral law in the Western world were derived from the Ten Commandments.

Afterwards, a new rules-based system, nicknamed “democracy”, drove the moral rules from the desires of the elites of every nation who can muster a majority in parliaments to pass laws. Nations became multi-cultural; where the nation is formed of many segments with differing sources of rules (some are biblical; others are secular).

The current events in Ukraine are a symptom of the struggle for defining the “rules” in the new world order as expressed by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen during her visit to Japan earlier this week

“Like the European Union, Japan understands what is at stake here. Not just Ukraine’s future. Not just Europe’s future. But the future of a rules-based world order,” Ursula von der Leyen said.

What are the rules of stability/sustainability of a world order? Is there a consensus among the world population to establish such an order or even to campaign for its existence? If there is none, then why is this phrase "world order" being often used by politicians? Which world order is it?

Was there a similar episode mentioned in human literature about an attempt of the population to build such an order?

1 The whole earth had a common language and a common vocabulary. 2
When the people moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and
settled there. 3 Then they said to one another, “Come, let’s make
bricks and bake them thoroughly.” (They had brick instead of stone and
tar instead of mortar.) 4 Then they said, “Come, let’s build ourselves
a city and a tower with its top in the heavens so that we may make a
name for ourselves. Otherwise we will be scattered across the face of
the entire earth.

5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower that the people
had started building. 6 And the Lord said, “If as one people all
sharing a common language they have begun to do this, then nothing
they plan to do will be beyond them. 7 Come, let’s go down and confuse
their language so they won’t be able to understand each other."

8 So the Lord scattered them from there across the face of the entire
earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why its name was
called Babel—because there the Lord confused the language of the
entire world, and from there the Lord scattered them across the face
of the entire earth.

Genesis chapter 11
