Eventually for humankind to truly prosper and survive yes, it needs a one world government. The danger in that transition is who consolidates power
and rules in that one world government. Looking to Rome as an example only one out of every six emperors was a good emperor. The rest were either
incompetent, despots or sadistic tyrants that the state and the people suffered under.
Right now there is still that possibility if you don't like the system somewhere you can move somewhere else with a different system. Right now
though it is becoming increasingly hard because of how the media and technology function it is easier to over throw through either peaceful or violent
means a one nation government as opposed to entire planet under one government.
Unfortunately the business practices you speak of are almost impossible to stop for one simple reason. Money, it's the root of all evil, and when you
have a society based on earning wealth equals earning privilege, status, luxury, influence and sexual partners you have a whole lot of incentive to
not only work hard for money but to come by it any means necessary if you covet the things money can buy enough.
While a Utopian Society based on a communal sharing of resources equally has long been attractive to the progressively romantic, peace loving and
spiritual, attempts and communist type Utopian societies have failed miserably for two primary reason.
First is the propensity towards laziness when one is not under the harsh urgent need to acquire sustenance or wealth. Communist workers all paid the
same privileges in similar food, dwelling, clothing, and entertainment rations have no incentive to be productive. They can't be fired, their rations
can't be taken away, and likewise they can't get extra privileges for working harder or being innovative.
Fewer great innovative minds develop as to date necessity has been the mother of all invention. Only the most curious and introspective minds will
then engage in this process and in engage in a system where less forward thinking minds in charge of parceling out resources to aid such an innovative
inclined person might not see it expedient to deliver those resources controlled by the communal state.
The second big problem in communist systems trying to truly take hold is while they remain dependent on other capitalist societies and nations that
lie outside their borders for natural resources that they lack within theirs they must produce something that can be sold for hard currency abroad to
buy those things and produce it from a system rife with inefficiency and laziness because it is not a performance rewarded society. This usually
causes shortages of domestically made goods that have to be sold on the international market and shortage of natural resources that have to be bought
internationally because of a low domestic output and productivity. Ultimately no one in these societies is better off and keeping people participating
in the system then usually requires intense security and oversight.
Right now under this current performance based monetary system, that is basically devoid of any true spiritual nature, the chances are the powers that
could achieve enough wealth to force consolidation through force are going to be corrupt powers who amassed wealth in anyway shape or form they can.
Most of the world's wealthiest families have their fortunes rooted in Piracy, Opium Smuggling, Mercenary Activity, and various forms of extortion and
frauds. Few people get rich by participating by adhering to all the rules, and the few who do have a very hard time keeping their wealth playing by
Currently because of this it's almost a given that any regime that can take over the whole world will be a bad one, and any performance based system
they device that incorporates a form of currency that can buy privilege will be an equally corrupt and bad one.
One of the founding fathers greatest fears as they hammered out the details to the constitution in that sweltering summer in Philadelphia is how they
would attract the best minds into government with service to the government not being particularly lucrative as far as being paid.
Looking to Rome the example of a representative Republic that ours was being founded on and how the Patrician Ruling Class basically ended up
consolidating most of the land and commerce in relatively few hands because of their position of access in the government creating a situation similar
to ours today with corporations the founders tried to build in as many additional checks and balances as possible into the government.
Ultimately though it depended on politicians and public officials being honest. Ultimately though most public officials and politicians yield to a
concerted effort to bribe them to get favorable laws that give a select few an advantage in commerce, and to themselves be on the lookout for rare
business and investment opportunities that politicians are often in a unique position to get in on the ground floor of.
The special interest Lobbying system in the nation today is basically the organized institution set up to bribe politicians. Special interests are the
only ones that have representation in the representative republic now. The State's Rights originally set up in the Constitution to protect each State
and it's citizens individual interest have all been taken away by a Federal Government that our founders wanted to be weak and simply settle disputes
between states, ensure uniform tariffs in trade, levy taxes and raise an army both only in a time of war, and conduct the nation's foreign policy has
grown so bloated with all invasive powers in large part to accommodate each special interest group's special arena of wealth and power generation.
The entire system is based on bribery, corruption, power for the sake of power, and eliminating all forms of dissent and counter measures against it.
Though it will be hard on the citizens the only thing that is going to correct this likely will be a prolonged period of deprivation that starves the
corporations and special interest groups out of business for lack of business and ceases to make political office and government positions
It would be highly detrimental to let any corrupt system take over the world and ours as well as every other nation's is basically flawed because of
a performance based, monetary based society.
A Utopian society could only flourish if and when humanity reaches the point where we are all well educated at youth and are allowed to choose
precisely what we love doing best in doing something creative and productive and the output of each persons labor, or invention, or growth or
cultivation is simply given away to whom ever needs it at the end of the day.
People will work for the love of what they do, the things that they need will be obtained free from other people who love what they do. Everyone will
see a responsibility to share and share alike in this process and everyone will have a desire to enhance and support one an others spiritual and
intellectual growth and provide the support they can to further their talents and expertise at what they do to contribute they love best.
Which billionaire and which corrupt political establishment do you currently see willing to give up their power to begin the hard transition to this
That's the only way Earth and humankind will survive. It's going to take a lot of courage and selflessness and love for one another to dare try it.
We are pretty much screwed until the Ommish Sects concept of Ask and thou shall receive is practiced universally. It's a Christian concept but they
are the only group of Christians and the only group I know of that actually practices it.
That's the road forward, and we are going to have to go backward to get to it in my humble opinion.
