if there is a nwo would it become like hitler wanted it? An Aryan race? and if this eventually happened would we lose track of free enterprise and become ... dare i say... communists?

Well this is where the peace, freedom and one world government thing falls down. We simply can't have a planet with a one world government where everyone is an equal resident.
The big corporations will always need the poorer nations for cheap labour and the rich will need the low paid to do all the menial tasks for them.

First off one simple lesson.. Communism isnt specifically a goverment type, and there have yet to be any TRUE communist economic systems without corupption. A true democratic nation has never been realized either.

Anyway it is possible to have a Democratic goverment with a communist economic model.

The true basis of a communist economy is that everyone receives the exact same pay as everyone else. Which imo is the way it should be. For example to tie it into what we know today.. Every single person once they got out of high school would receive a salary of say.. 75,000 a year, every year for as long as they continued to actively pursue their career. (By going to college, or by working in that career) Anyone that didnt would immediatly be cut to 0 as that is what they are worth.

Some may say why should a Janitor make the same amount as a surgeon... Hmm how long could that surgeon continue to operate with bio-hazards piling up in his lab. Everyone that has a job and works a equal amount of time is worth the same amount to society. Without their job others fail, without them more fail. Without any couple of jobs the entire economy can falter. (or at least a regions economy)

Communism without corupption doesnt entirely negate free enterprise. It does however destroy capitalism, big corporations, and people that make thousands of times what anyone in the world should ever make.

In my opinion anyone that makes above $100,000 US and doesnt give the rest straight to charity is a complete asshole and a leach on the rest of the world.

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs."

Xerrog, you make a great argument against our current economic system, but the fact remains that most of our government is run by men who make over 100,000 dollars a year. They aren't going to be making sweeping reforms that hurt their ability to be on top of the world.

Communism will probably never work. At some point human nature kicks in and someone says, "Hey, I can exploit this!" and it happens.

I think the point is, who is going to go thru all that medical training and work under those conditions when they can just be a janitor and get the same pay.

Similarly, why would anyone have a motivation to create new innovations in a communist system? Capitalism encourages innovation, communism represses it. It doesn't prevent it entirely, but it does work against it.
