Afghanistan and see that there is a whole another world out there that needs help and they need it immediately. Or else, those same people are going
to get become envious and raise havoc in the world, ie terrorism.
Obviously you don't know or understand the history of Afghanistan. Please tell me why and how a One World Government would bring peace and
prosperity to one of the of the most politically unstable areas of the world. The most stable that region has ever been was under Mongol rule from
the 13th to 18th centuries. Most recently, the Soviet and USA invasions have done very little to bring Afghans to modern living standards. As long
as their #1 crop is opium, and the cash from this crop is controlled by drug lords/elite govt officials, their standard of living will always be
You can say that no elite group of human beings can manage the world. Well, ask yourselves why you all live so peacefully in the US? Did you
yourselves create this kind of environment, or was it the "elite" group of politicians that have been making sure that the US is in good working
We live peacefully in the US because we have sets of freedoms defined within our founding documents and vigilantly enforce private property rights,
contract law, and the right to bear arms. Once upon a time ago, our founding fathers were normal citizens. If they were elites, we'd be more like
Canada and still honor the British monarchy on our currency. And the elites you speak of are our elected representatives, we are a Representative
Republic after all, not a Democracy.
You guys seem to think that anarchy is the greatest way to live... That we should be free from all government control and that we should govern
our lives ourselves, then why don't you guys look at Afghanistan for the past 20 years?
Living by just laws that don't violate our founding documents isn't anarchy. And freedom to make choices, responsible or not, is the best way to
live. See the above point about Afghanistan.
Please tell me what happened to that country after Soviet War and the government had collapsed... Anarchy. There was civil war among various
tribes and war lords running the show... Drug cultivation got out of control, and millions of people were raped, brutalized, and murdered. Women lost
their all their rights and were forced into live dehumanizing lifestyles. But nobody in the world noticed, until the terrorism bit them on their ass
and reminded them that the WHOLE WORLD needs to be looked after.
Please tell me what happened under the rule of communism? Flowers, Utopia, and Singing, and Wealth right? Or what about under secular rule during
the 70s? Right the USA encouraged them to pick a fight with the USSR. Or the monarchy before that? Or British/Anglo rule before that? All 3 of
which tried to modernize the territory, secularize the government, and give equal rights to women.
When the Taliban moved in after the Soviets pulled out is when the society regressed to ultra-orthodox Islamic law. This is also the reason for many
of their current problems. Is the USA helping or hurting? Both, as we've always done.
At the least, read this Wikipedia article
on Afghanistan. At best, go get a few history books of
the region from your library. If you choose to ignore and deny the culture, history, religion, sociology, economics, and anthropology of the region,
then you deserve to be called an idiot.
