What I find amusing is that most people that want to hang onto the past and who side against globalization and the sharing of wealth, are religious conservatives.
There have been millions of people since the dawning of time who do good and mean good. Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Ghandi, the list goes on and on.

The whole point of a One World Government is to rebuild other nations and make the world a more balanced place. Why don't you guys take a trip to 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.
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 order?
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?
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.

Why are these types of threads popping up everywhere?
War: created by the people that proclaim they have a solution.
Poverty and Disease: created by the people that proclaim they have a solution.
Overpopulation: Really do you research. The earth is not overpopulated. Your just swallowing what your told. I bet you believe in Global Warming created by too much Carbon emissions too?
Violence: maybe not CREATED, but supported endlessly by the people that proclaim they have a solution.
Religious Extremism: created, and fueled, by the people that proclaim they have a solution.
Think of this as a chess game. It is time consuming and because we move step by step, we are now in check mate. But I guess it's not so bad. Right.

I've been thinking about this all evening. The flaw with the concept of communism is hard to define to someone convinced of it value. What it is is a carrot on a stick used as a lure by evil men. It sounds plausible, it is not. It makes sense, but could never be reality. Those who dangle the carrot know it.
