I'll stop replying to you after this, as I have university in the morning and would much rather finish reading a book than banter any further.
I have given quite alot of thought to the topic. Certainly far more than you apparently have. Have you considered the astronomical logistics problems
associated with some of the silly fears associated with a global community?
Enforced population levels? Stormtroopers? Et al? This is not a country the size of Germany we are discussing, this is 900 Billion+ square kilometers
of varied terrain and water. A singular government is going to be too busy maintaining a healthy level of life across the globe and fighting people,
like yourself, who oppose it out of pure fear and blindness.
This wonderful one world community you speak of will only seek to consolidate power amongst a select few and will give you, as a citizen, absolutely
no say in what goes on in your own life. You will be taken care of from cradle to grave. You will be told what to think, when to think it, what to do,
and what choices you have permission to make.
Yes, this does indeed show that you have a very good ability to sum up the governments of most countries in a concise fashion. Good job! A good grasp
of language is a great skill to have. I'll simply point out how perfectly this description fits America, most of all.
I completely agree with you about live and let live, why can't everyone live in peace, etc. Sadly, this is a pipe dream as long as humanity is split
into factions. Someone is always going to come along and try to kill you for being different. You yourself are promoting a lovely double standard by
essentially saying "I will be peaceful as long as I am never asked to change for the greater good, then I will just shoot people rather than
With a global society, the opportunity to completely erase any defining attribute other than "Human" would finally be attainable, and within a few
generations we would attain the same level of closeness around the globe that most tribes do. Aided, of course, by the elimination of the close minded
people who refuse to become part of the whole. Resistance is great, mind you, but these people would be no better than the religious fundamentalists
that you profess to dislike so much.
Ah, and you are a few thousand kilometers off in your estimation of my location. I am Canadian, born and raised. Again, you simply proved your
terrible reliance on nationalism and fear by pointing the finger at those whom Americans traditionally perceive to be lower: Europeans.
Goodnight, good Sir. I would ask you to allow the topic to get back on track and take any further correspondence with me to the U2U arena.
