I do not see a problem with this.
The problem is that greedy, power-hungry people want to be that #1 ruler most of all, and historically, they get their way most often because
they're willing to go beyond the law and play dirty to get their way.
This is why tyrants constantly come to power, revolts have to keep happening, etc.
It would be far more efficient if the Earth was divided into an infinite number of independent communities that fed and defended and governed
themselves, and worked with all other communities on Earth on a peer-to-peer level. Why hasn't this actually worked yet? For the same reason a
world-wide ruler can't work: corruption. There is always some ass-hat who has to come along and be a Hitler or Stalin and ruin it for everyone and
kill millions of people because he's off his rocker. I would rather take my chances on a community-level, where all communities assume responsibility
for themselves and take authority from no one else, than to have to deal with dictators' boots up my ass every time some Nero or Caligula decides that
he feels like making a quilt of out my family's hair or some other twisted thing for which history provides countless real examples.
