If you really think about the contexts of a One-World Government, you will come to understand that it would do the planet good. You just have to
think outside the box. Here are my points:
1) War Would End
In order for a One-World Government to be firmly established, there would have to be an understanding between all the nations of the world. The G-20
Summit is a perfect example of powerful nations co-existing for a beneficial common purpose. If all the nations in the world are united, then there
won't be anymore disagreements or factors leading up to war. All difficulties would be resolved in peaceful fashion.
1. Wars will never end, as they have been a factor of Humanity since time immortal. As a matter of fact, Animals even wage wars against eachother, can
you find a way to stop them from doing so? No? So there you go.
2) Poverty & Disease Would End
A lot of you seem to be complaining about higher taxes if a One-World Government becomes a reality. I believe that's a selfish point of view.
If the goal of raising taxes is to balance out the world economy and redistribute money to the poor, then why would it be such a bad thing?
I don't believe a lot of you have ever visited a third-world country, let alone put yourself in their shoes. I went to Afghanistan around 2006 to do
some charity work and I can tell you that those people would give an arm and a leg to be able to live even close to how a minimum wage US citizen
You all obviously care about the human race if you seem to be rebelling against the order in order to save "freedom". But would it be wrong to
raise taxes in the wealthiest nations of the world and distributing to poor countries? Would it be wrong to use this same tax money to fund research
for medical cures of the world's deadliest diseases?
2. Poverty cannot be eliminated when you have people who wish not to work nor earn a living. No matter how much aide or infrastructure you pour into
programs and the like, there will ALWAYS be individuals who live below the Poverty line, whether by choice or circumstance. As for Diseases, there
will ALWAYS be illnesses, they will never become fully eliminated. Often times, when curing one illness, another is created or discovered in its
3) Over-Population Would End
Let's say that this One-World Government sets a regulation that states that the amount of children you can have has to match the amount of income you
make. Would this really be a bad thing? How many of you have seen or grown up in low-income families with multiple children? Some people can barely
support themselves, let alone multiple children. What would happen to these children who've received a lack of nutrition and lack of education in
their lives? This is the root of a moral problem that potentially leads to crime.
Let's say your parents were living off of Ramen noodles everyday and working minimum wage, would you respect them for bringing you into a world of
poverty? What if they had waited until they were making enough income to raise you in a comfortable manner?
3. Over-population would never end, because Human and Animal nature is to PROCREATE. You cannot take away this inherited characteristic, so therefore
what would you do with the babies that are born outside of a particular family's set limits? Would you kill them? Dump them? Adopt them? Regardless,
the population would still increase. Also, in correlation to the "Cure Disease" aspect of your "Point Number Two", the more Illnesses you cure,
and the further along you increase longevity as a result, the greater our Global Population will become.
4) Violence Would End
Let's say that the "right to bear arms" is banished and punishment for certain crimes get harsher. Wouldn't this decrease the amount of violence
and murder in the world? What if new technology were created similar to the weapons in the film, "Minority Report", that subdues criminals in a
On a global note, this would take quite a bit of time because war would have to be abolished and peaceful coalition among nations would need to be
established first, hence the One World Government.
4. Violence, as in War, will NEVER end. Again, Animals have always subjected eachother to violent acts since the beginning of time, and Humans are no
different. You can never eliminate a characteristic of nature, you can only reduce or inhibit it through the way in which you raise your children, the
environment you provide for them, as well as the moral values which you instill in them. A Unified World Government has NO ability to do this for you,
and therein lies the current fault behind a growing number of individuals who simply wish to shove off their own responsibilities upon the Government,
5) Religious Extremism Would End
The age old nonsense of "My God is better than your God" has been plaguing mankind since the beginning. Even to this day, if you check the news,
you will probably see "Suicide bomber hits subway, kills 15". Where do you think that suicide bomber got his motivation from?
Now, this might cause a bit of controversy but if I was part of a secret group that could influence the world's events, I would certainly try to
stage some sort of Extraterrestrial contact with the world that would challenge people's beliefs. Now ask yourself if such an event happened, would
the suicide bomber have still bombed the subway due to his religious beliefs?
There are many more points I would like to point out but unfortunately this post will not allow me to write anymore. Just ask yourselves if you would
like to live in a society described as above.
5. The current aspect of Religion as we know it has spread for roughly 3,000 Years, so what makes you believe you can simply scrub everyone's
Beliefs? No one should EVER be asked to give up nor sacrifice their Moral integrity, and Belief systems, and therefore this proposition is so
ludicrous in nature, it will in fact never be accomplished. I dislike the idea of an Atheist controlled Government as much as I do a Thuggish
Theocracy such as the Taliban. 93% of the World is considered Religious in Nature, so unless you wish to Tyrannically impose 7% of the World's
beliefs upon the Vast Majority, then you are out of luck I am afraid.
