Greetings to all. As you have read in the title, I am an Authoritarian. I know what history tells us about authoritarian regimes, but I do not wish to be as they were/are. Truthfully, I would gladly accept the title of world leader. Why? Let me explain it to you and maybe you will understand my way of thinking better.

I never thought of global control until my late teens, when I began learning about geopolitics and read news from around the world. Quickly I became frustrated with it. Why isn't this world united under a common human banner? My frustration grew to the point where I began to abhor the game of geopolitics and felt the urge to change it.

My plans evolved over time as I matured into young adulthood, but the frustration never relented. Finally I decided we as a species were too young and immature to be left as is. A strong and ethical person should be at the helm to lead us to a brighter future. Naturally, I wanted to be that leader.

Planning out how to run the world was difficult of course, but I persisted until I built a framework I could work with. Countries would be replaced with districts based upon ethnic groups. Resources would be shared for all to benefit from. Money would be replaced with luxury credits to spend on things wanted but not needed.

I kept thinking on it, working it, shaping it. How would crime be dealt with? What would be defined as a luxury and necessitate? What of dissent, how to deal with that? And what laws should be adopted as to safeguard my mental utopia?

These questions were slowly answered with the help of current events and past accounts from history. For the moment, I felt as if I could achieve my goal and make the world better. Then a thought crept into my mind. How would a succesor be chosen, and would they be righteous or something darker than anything we could imagine?

This killed my hope. This one thought, this one problem that refused to be solved, snuffed out the idea of becoming a benign authoritarian leader of humankind. Yet, my mind still refused to let it truly fade away. Still I work on this one problem.

Yes I still want global control, yes I still want to craft a world in which all may live and thrive. I am a benign authoritarian, an oxymoron I know, and I am unashamed of my way of thinking.

Ask any questions you may have about my ideas and I will answer them, hopefully to your liking.

Biggest problem........

You have delegated yourself the lone arbiter of whats ethical, civil, and right.......

Thats why youre wrong........

And theres no such thing as a benign authoritarian........

At some point there will be distention.......and at some point that always ends in the execution of those who dont agree........

We call it history......

I appreciate your feedback and I understand where you are coming from. I do understand historical regimes have given authoritarianism a terrible name. If not held back by the limitations of writing, I would tell all of my ideas to the fullest extent.

While you may consider my view incorrect, and I respect your opinion, I cannot see a future in which a divided world continues to prosper.

So how would you enforce that thought process and viewpoint on those that do not agree and resist..........

So what happens when Libertarians like me refuse to submit to your world government and don’t recognize your authority over us? I will never submit to a one world government.

Simple, I would educate them on what the goals I have for the species are. I would tell them that a united world benefits all instead of the powerful few. Then I would release them back to their homes afterwards. Enlighten rather than punish.

You would be shown the benefits of a United world over a world divided by countries and borders. Would you sacrifice global peace in favor of Nationalism? We need to unite as a species before we wipe ourselves out with war.

So forced socialism under a dictator. Segregation and re-education camps for those who disagree.

Surely everyone will quickly embrace this novel idea.

Would you kindly explain how the sharing of resources for all to benefit from is a bad thing?

There would be no camps at all, on the contrary they would be more like apartment blocks with amenities of home. As for the districts based upon ethnic groups, one only has to look at the way the colonial powers failed when they forced their own borders upon groups of people.

No, punishment would be dealt only as a last resort. Instead rehabilitation services would be used in place of jails and prisons that fail so many people.

They will be given tours of formerly impoverished areas that are finally allowed the same comforts as developed areas. They would then be asked why they disagree with a united species in favor of the selfishness of Nationalism. They would again be freed.

I am no troll, I am one who believes in unifying the species instead of continuing to adhere to the idea one country is greater than the other.

How am I wrong in this regard, wanting unity and peace for everyone?

Because unity and peace doesn't come from forcing everyone to believe what you do.....

Countries have arisen from forcing people to abide by the laws dictated, correct?

A unfied world needs not come from force, not if there were more pressing matters we as a species needed to overcome as one.

It technicaly does not have to be you , we can talk of an artificial super intelligence dictator. The same problem of insuring an upgraded succesor to it (or that ASI being in alignment in the first place I.E benignness).

Human Authoritarian are not good enough , so for an Authoritarian , an ASI is a prerequisite.

Britain arose from one country subjugating Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. France came from force as well. So did Russia, the US, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Italy, etc.

To see true unity, as I said, a common problem that humanity faces as a whole would suffice. No military threats, no embargoes, no force.

An AI would be acceptable. It would be able to preform better than a human could. As long as it isn't corrupted by a virus or something of that nature.

These countries still have the voices of the people....and laws that protect free thought, political affiliation and right to dissent...... Hence representatives of such in their governments .....


Maybe history more?

You act as if I said I would take away these things if in power. A true leader would not look to the subjugation of their people, but instead would focus upon how to make life as best as possible for them. A true leader would hold fear and respect for the masses. Dissent should be a signal to a leader that something is amiss and changes are needed.
