Many assuming will follow this sentence now.
What would I do if I got a time machine and were in their position? I mean, taking over the world. Lets forget about paradoxes, because we already
assume time travel works. I say that to avoid the multiverse theory here because I think then, possibilities are too many.
If I had traveled by accident from 1940 to 1965 and saw I lost, I would, in that order:
# Phase 1: Covering my ass
- Jump back and destroy all evidence.
Reason: Cannot risk someone being on par with me
- Take with me all witnesses and knowledgeable people to a distant location in the same time.
Reason: I need compatible machines and materials and mancraft. Part of the reason is also that I can not risk havinga leak to my enemies.
# Phase 2: Setup base operation - Going parallel now
a) Establish a short term base with enough technology to further research
Reason: It is cold in Antarctica and I need more stuff.
a) Jump through time to checkout the best points in time where every big nation is either weak or in war with each other. Reason: Find out the point
of no return, the point where they find access to the same technology I have and plot a plan to takeover all nations at once.
# Phase 3: Plot a plan
b) Jump back in time to be safe from attacks from storng nations (like goto 1600) with enough equipment and materials to get my productions of
warships and robo soldiers going.
b) Seed technological stuff that I cannot produce into different times so I can reap the efforts. I think about specialized stuff that needs huge
production chains. Like microchips and computer stuff.
# Phase 4: Gaining world order
I would pop into existence and completely arrest the most powerful nations governments. Take offline all atomic bombs and weapons systems. I would
make myself appear above every nations capital and I would not tolerate violence. My technological advancements would be that high, when I strike.
I would offer the world access to my technology so we can built up this and get everyone to 1. world level without damaging the environment. For that
all nations must surrender their laws and border are to be canceled.
I would either make or lookout for an island where I take the prisoners so they stay there. The rest of the population will then get major direct
Then I would hand over power to a congress of people that are selected randomly from all kinds of nations. There would be no upper or under class.
I still would control the technology to some point in time.
Clearly I am a dictatoress in this scenario and it is my way or.., well it is only my way because you cannot do anything.
Add: I would also value different cultures and traditions.
I would then, after we finally have peace on our planet, would build a interplanetary defense system. The prisoners from before, I would let them
free, depending on what they did. I would not violate human rights.
Some processes like resolving borders would go slower, until there are no reasons the be jealous of other nations.
