First off, i enjoyed reading, but i probably would have enjoyed it more if it were in a few paragraphs? It just makes it so much easier to read!

You know, i am not entirely convinced the world needs to depopulate. We absolutely need to watch how much we consume, as well as how much we
reproduce. i think the consumption is an issue absolutely. And not even necessarily how "much" we go through, but more the methods through which
we do that. Though, most certainly, how much is a problem too.
The real argument is, WHO's one world government? Many arguments can be put forward about the method. Sure there are ideals, far better
ideals, where we voluntarily, as one, learn to love each other and unite, where we put aside our religions and differences as take control of our own
fate. But that is an ideal senario. How in the world is that going to happen when the state of the world is how it is. The majority of the world is
still cemented into its religious dogmas and medieval mindsets, and they aint changing any time soon.
i dont think anyone necessarily needs to put aside their beliefs. Instead, i feel the core proposed idea of cooperation is the key. In this respect,
the idea would be to more accept the beliefs as individual and inherently "different," and explore and learn about them cooperatively. i do not
feel anyone needs to agree to cooperate, but when everything is seen as a competition it seems to be the only time it happens. But, even those that
agree would tell a significantly different story if asked to write a book
So, in this, i do not necessarily feel it is the presence of differences
that is the issue. It is seen, once again, as the methods through which we deal with it.
i feel the people "at the top" are indicative of issues that concern all of humanity, regardless of class or money. When one is wealthy, however, i
think they generally have the means with which to carry out those excesses and in some cases, atrocities, currently and throughout history. Because
of that (along with you it seems), i feel that to "fix" it , we need to look at how we interact with each other. i have never understood why anyone
thinks that these people would want anything to change, as they quite literally "have the world in their pocket(book)," i could be entirely wrong
on that, but it makes less sense to me.
We also see two different scenarios. One is a one world government
, as in a one world order attained mainly, or entirely, by
political/military means. The other is united earth, of sorts, where the individuals in the world choose to cooperate. Both would likely have some
sort of governing function still, but the overall world would be quite different. Both of these also tend to get lumped into the same NWO negativity.
However, i feel that as our population grows as well as our connectivity through technology, unity is happening whether we like it or not. We can
still completely maintain our individual identity, but i feel it would better serve the planet as a whole with a co-operative based society. The way
i see it, our lungs and heart are quite different systems, but they cooperate as part of the same system. i think the only way to truly "implement"
this is to have enough people decide to do it to move the momentum of the masses in that direction. It must never be implemented by the
"government," but if it goes the other way around i think it gives everyone the opportunity to choose, because that is how it is anyway. i feel we
do need to start considering how the world is going to (and already has) change from technology and how best to integrate it and utilize it in a
society where the world is getting "smaller and smaller (sic)" everyday.
i feel that with the advent of robotics and the rate of technological growth, we not only need
to start looking at the entire "system," but
we are finally starting to be in a position to do so. But the only way we can actually change the base system of division and competition is through
our individual choices and actions.
