So I was watching a video on youtube, and in the column to the right where the promoted video goes was this...
POW, or President of the World, is a character created to promote the voice of the People of the World via a global democracy, found here:
www.globaldemocracy.com... POW is not a New World Order concept. POW does not add a layer of leadership to the world. POW listens to all People of
the World who would like to see their leaders act in ways that benefit all of us, not just a select few. Follow on Facebook: on.fb.me...

This is the best thing that I have seen come out of the internet in a long time. Pretty much any person can make a topic or suggestion and the rest of
the world sees it. You then vote on whether you think its a good idea or a bad one. There's places to leave your own comments so people can get your
views and opinions. The most "approved" ideas get put back out in video's, and (unlike facebook) your information will not be sold to a third party.
In the video the guy says "the more that people unite in one place, the more powerful their voices become.". I think that if the people of the world
get behind this then we could actually start pushing the ball in the right direction.
SN- when I was watching this I couldn't help but feel a little freaked out about the video. The fact is that the world is a little uneasy at the
moment. Everyone is a little on edge, between 2012, the #@%$ economy, the occupy movement, all this war over nothing, bank bailouts...(the list goes
on and on), the world just isn't as "calm" as it used to be. Now I can't help but get the feeling that this is a way to make the people believe they
have a voice in their governments and make them think that a world president would be a good idea. That he would act like that. Allow you to make the
decisions, and we all know that wouldn't happen. That being said i think its a good way for the world to find a voice, but as always awareness is
key. I for one will be looking for more signs as to whether or not tptb are going to try and pull a fast one.
You know what is worse then fascism and communism ? A democracy You think you are free but the majority rules and you had better be in the
majority. That is why a republic ruled by law is the only real way all voices can have the same freedom.
In a sense this is true. Democracy in the traditional sense is bad, as it only allows people to choose between ideas that are not theirs. Essentially
you pick between two pre-determined agenda's that you had no say in making. You vote for someone to pick for you. Choosing between a giant douche and
a turd sandwich. In this style of democracy you pick what certian ideas you want to promote. If you can make a valid enough point then you should
never be on the "wrong side" of the vote.
I think the masses will go along with this ..sounds like a good idea .BUT ...Oh and China or India could out vote the U.S. any day ..And what about
the issue that we find in the little dibold machines ....Not for me,but you are free to fall in line ....peace
Do not fall for this, we already have the power of social networking and it is obviously working hence all the bills to censor the internet. This in
my opinion just puts public voice into a more manageable state which could easily be fixed, censored and even used as a way to spread propaganda.
Soon , the Euro will fail , the "world reserve currency" ( $ ) will be introduced as Europe`s main currency , America`s already telling dozy zarkozy
and merkel the turtle , what laws and regulations they can and can-not introduce.
Once America has Europe on a financial leash they will move towards declaring full scale war with Russia and China from all angles, and the world will
be under American dictatorship by 2020...... oh snap, that`s already happened
Ron Paul is the only one who can prevent global domination ...... failing that , there`s always that little gang of islands who seem to have a knack
for defeating pure evil wherever it stands.
I made a thread on this sort of ' technological direct democracy' before, with the technology available to us it's not a stretch that something
like that could be achieved. Changing attitudes, beliefs and dependencies, now that's the hard part. But, you can never have too many well presented
video's like this around which hint at an alternative, so good job.
If you think falling in line means allowing your voices and opinions to be heard then i think you should look up the definition of conformity. You'd
realize that sitting there docile and quietly disagreeing doesn't change the world. This has the potential to be something. It isn't some government
controlled website. It's a place for ideas to spout and grow, and i firmly believe that an idea is one of the most powerful weapons that we possess.
Especially with the internet, the spread of certain idealisms could fix the world.
Deny ignorance. Just because something can be used for bad doesn't mean that it can't be used for good. Remember that every blade no matter how
sharp has two sides.
a lot of you guys are slamming this site, but I'm giving it a chance. I like the idea of free flowing ideas, lets just hope it's moderated well.
They could take a lesson from ATS. If anything saves the human race it's going to be a global connectedness and the internet is the best vehicle for
that. Once we get over the superficial uses of the net I think people will start to wake up and use it in new movements. It's already in full swing
in some places in the world. There seems now to be a push to unite citizens of all countries.
the site is only in its very beginning stages, but I like the concept so far.
II have a voice and its called a opinion ...I express that quite frequently ..I think there are many good ideas to address the many problem in
many places of the world that I would have no opinion to offer ..Who am I to say to you what is best for you and your culture ..Even the Colonialists
had good Ideas for the Natives in their own mind but failed miserably to consider the cultures of the tribes they were dealing with ..look at how that
turned out ..poisoned rivers,Buffalo gone, stuck on a reserve on a piece of land stolen from them in the first place ...Yea we need a concisest all
right ...If this group wanted to know what we think all they have to do is Google it ...there is the conses .no need to vote, If they want to know
what we think they can find it ...its every where on the net ...the Govt's know what we think ...and they use that knowledge to do what ? I will
share my opinion and not hide it but I wont be part of the crowd that just might decide to bring out the gallows to fix the problem .One group of
ideals wont work for the whole .Even Nature tells us that .do all the birds fly south? do all fish migrate? Are all peoples nomadic? one mind one
world govt. is all I can see coming out of this. Like I said ,I think the masses will go for it....peace
The concept is ideal, but with this kind of thing you're only as influential as the number of email addresses you can register with. Until there is
one person one vote it can't be used fairly. Having said that the current system doesn't exactly excel at that.
Nice idea on paper and the video was excellently worded and spoken!
However, I'm gonna just live on my property and do my thing.
I harm nobody, in fact I actually help out.
Either way, leave me alone and I will do the same.
I do not want nor need a president of the world.
Why pay someone to make decisions for me when I have been doing that just fine all along?
Maybe the president of the world could go get his own piece of land and make his own decisions for himself.
worst than that.
The American forfathers argued against democracy as much if not more than communism and socialism.
It's simple really, to show how democracy fails us. It goes to the heart of what would happen to a self serving people (all of us) when given
What happens to a tax producing minority when a tax consuming majority figures out they can vote entitlements to themselves?
Democracy simply cannot and will not ever work. Especially in a morally bankrupt society as we find ourselves in now.
