Project ahead a little. What will the outcome of having one world order be? It seems inevitable, it seems like there is no way to overcome the trend
towards global homogenizaiton of nations and economies.
After 100 or 200 years have passed, what then? Will the world be united under a corporate supersystem of interdependance, infrastructure, and
economic reliance? Or will warfare tear this utopian dream apart?
Or, more interestingly, what about the emergence of a new spiritual leader, like a Messiah? Or what about the emergence of a truly world-emperor
leader? What would that do to the race of humanity?
I think it to be a better idea to be free, and to have self-ruled nations of reasonably educated and refined persons. It would make doing everything
much easier. Even if we were not rich, life would cease to be much of a trouble or a burden for much of the civilized world.
Since the corporate-federal-economic combination seems to be a rather dead-ended social philosophy, I would expect this kind of system to fold itself
rather quickly. It lacks any kind of soul with which to endure past the generations. There is nothing worthy to hand down from such a nation, her
people are debtors and consumers, they retain no understanding of citizenship.
To replace these drone-like waves of people generated by a system of self-indulgence and blind functionality, will come a new generation of less
affluent children, who will attune to the love of their neighbors and less of the entertainments offered to them by marketers.
Perhaps then the light of the republic and the virtues of wisdom and civilization will again emmanate from America.
