Hello, this is my second thread ever and I'm still not sure if I'm doing it right so please be patient if it takes me more than one try to get the video on here. I searched for this video and didn't find it but if it's out there, please feel free to delete if necessary. Michio Kaku, a theoretical physicist talks about the evolution of our species and the different types of "phases" that we will go through, assuming we don't destroy ourselves. He seems to be making the argument that a one world civilization is necessary for us to progress forward and eventually leave our planet and spread our species throughout the universe. Some examples are the Empire from Star Wars, United Earth from Star Trek, The Terran Federation from Starship Troopers, United States of Earth from Futurama, etc.

Near the end he also addresses the idea that there could be many worlds out there that never evolved to the next level and instead destroyed themselves through war, pollution, etc. Who knows, maybe there was once a primitive civilization on Mars that never made it past the primitive stage due to some extinction event. Maybe the reason we haven't found life yet is because they didn't make it to the point where they could construct stone monuments or leave any real long lasting evidence of their existence.

Here's the video (hopefully) and my opinion afterwards....




Now I know there is a lot of debate over the whole NWO/One World Government and this subject has undoubtedly been brought up before but my objective is to bring this video to your attention as I feel he does bring up a few good points. I personally don't see what the problem is with a unified Earth. It seems to be the best way that we as a species can truly evolve to the next step which is to become a true intergalactic species. Could we get to the point where we come together for the betterment, nay, survival of the human race? Or is it just wishful thinking? Now, I'm not an expert on this subject so maybe you fine people can help me better understand the pros and cons of a One World Government. What do you think?

I don't think the idea of a One World Government is all bad.

Two of the first things that come to mind are no war and little or no hunger.

If it was set up like the U.N. except with all members having equal say.

Just saying we need to try something else because I sure don't like where we are headed!

edit:
To clarify the U.N. part I think there would need to be a large council that would represent all people.

Okay, I tell you this:

It cannot happen under capitalism. Is in nature of capitalism to always compete and in doing this, destroy competition. Scientific innovation relies on funding, which won't be granted unless it has opportunity to make money. Maybe it's not so bad, within unviversities, but they too must make money, which mean being competitive, or they will fail. Pharmaceutical companies are bad - researchers within them do not share ideas and discoveries, because this means their competitor receives profits, and not them, and they fail.

Economic strength in global scene is of exploitation and manipulation of weaker countries. Look at sweat shops in, say, Vietnam and such places. Big rich companies employ labour there not expensive, and it gives them necessary jobs to survive, but in exchange they must be controlled by companies. Because value of money is in its use - if these poor people stop working, they earn no money, and so money is not spent in buying goods and services, and so their economy fails.

Is highly unstable system which serves only profits and not improvement of humanity. But this is how the world such operates, and it's detrimental so bad. A one-world government is not conducive to this system. They need weaker countries for them to operate. Say just, stop allowing these corporations to operate like this? Then you get rid of capitalism. It is the backbone of the world as we know it today.

Basically, my point is that it cannot happen any time soon. If at all it could ever happen. Personally, I think that human nature will never end, and it will always get the better of all good intentions. To have one government, what you need is world peace. And I do not think it's totally necessary anyway. As long as there is free academic exchange between all institutions, all countries, then development will happen.

Exchange of information is not bad, thanks to the internet.

I think what troubles many people about a one world govt is that it would be a select few people at the top in power and it would be absolute power and like the saying goes "absolute power corrupts absolutely"

Many people look at the leaders we have in charge of our national govts and they seem corrupt, so god only knows how corrupt a world leader/s would be.

People fear a totalatarian regime dictating laws and the people powerless to have any control over the situation. Financial might condensed in the hands of a few, rationed out as they deem fit for the rest of us, military might condensed in the hands of a few to be used as they see fit, those few leaders passing laws that line up with their moral codes, not neccessarily the morals off the people they govern.

I guess it depends on how much you trust these leaders to "do the right thing" for humanity. It could work out very well, or it could go south really quick.....I have not made my mind up either way, but I hope one day it will happen and have a positive, not negative outcome.

Right now, I have little faith that the outcome would be positive, we have not as a species evolved enough me thinks. Maybe in another 500 years we might be ready for something like an NWO.

The larger the government the more waste, fraud and abuse. 

Look at the governments around the world today. 

Is there one that has redistributed wealth and people live equally? 

Is there one that has eliminated poverty?

Is there one that has no unemployment?

Why would anyone think all of these thing would improve on the largest scale when no country has accomplished it on a smaller scale?

Be careful what you wish for. There is no NWO rainbow or pot of gold.

Is a One World Government Necessary?:
Not at all, nor would it help. All that is necessary is worldwide cooperation, and that's a long way down the road. If the tribal mentality of mankind isn't outgrown, our civilization will never make it to "type one".

Thanks for the video. I found it very interesting.

See ya,
Milt

Okay, how about a little twist on the NWO.

If aliens are out there, and they have their civilizations, would we be in more of a need for a one species government?

Yes

Its is necessary and it will help, it is how our society is going evolve as a planet.

However

People presume a one world government means dictatorship under the rule of some sort of cabal of pedophile shapeshifting lizard aliens from a planet that doesnt exist.

So in that respect, that probably would be a bad thing.

In reality however, it is a good thing and will happen.

I don't think it's coming anytime in the near future, but if technology continues to progress then a World Government will grow out of that.

Let's put a hypothetical out there-We invent this teleporter. You can be anywhere on the planet in less than a minute. So, how do you control things then? If you can be anywhere in a minute, you can work anywhere on the planet, you can live anywhere. The whole nation-state apparatus makes no sense in such a setup. You would need a global rule of law. This is why world government comes up-Because technology is taking us to that point. The nation states developed from the city states, which developed from a lower level of organization. All of these came from advances which allowed for the faster exchange of information or people.

Thanks for the great replies everyone. I think it's true that a peaceful one world government is quite impossible under the capitalist system we have now. I also believe on that same note that the system as it is today can't sustain itself for much longer, but what next? We seem to cycle from one system to another every few hundred years (give or take a century or two) i.e. Feudalism, Slavery-Capitalism, Modern day Capitalism (still slavery for some), etc.

I feel that it's not a matter of if but when this system will have to change. I'm excited but also somewhat apprehensive of what's around the corner. The real test will be how we are able to pick up the pieces and hopefully keep from backtracking. It feels like we're right on the edge of something, perhaps a great leap forward of some kind? Only time will tell but I'm certain that some significant change will happen within my lifetime.

A one-world government being beneficial? Only under Christ Jesus.
Before that, however, we get a group of greedy and wealthy individuals that succumbed to the promises of power and control. A group who controls both sides of all issues to serve their own agenda of world domination under their "god" Satan. Think the tower at Babel and you won't be far off.

One World Government is the ONLY choice. It is simply the natural progression.

The important focus should be on: HOW and WHO.

Seriously - - - the squabbles fighting against this are endangering the important focus of HOW it is constructed and WHO is doing the construction.

I think we are pretty much already there in the reality of all the main governments working together.

Unfortunately - - - the people need to be appeased by believing they still have their independent country governments.

Of course One World Gov't is necessary. The issue is how we go about forming a one world gov't and how that gov't is ran. We must be fully aware of what is going on or we lose everything. We've got it right once in history. We must make sure we get it right for this final gov't. Due to economics we must become a one. Lets be old school US, not some socialist state. Blood will be shed. We only lose if we quit fighting. Our founders lost, and they kept fighting until we got our bill of rights. Never give it. Resist. Resist everything. Resistance lets you view both sides while giving time to make the correct decision.

ok so a one world gov is needed do we go by the Roman or the German or USSR or do we live by China, Persia or the Mead's? for they all have one thing in common world domination, to have that one must have control of thought, currency, religions belief, education, and Military might, to keep your people safe from the others that will rebel, or to crush the ones that will not bow down to your way of life. so who will be the emperor ? better yet where to find him or her Mid east? the west, USA UK Europe? the South Chavez or the east Kim Jong Un ? got to pick one, this is the one world gov and it does need a emperor.

No dictator needed. Set it up as original US. The world gov't is just what binds all the others together (like fed held states together). It isn't to make the others weaker, but make everyone stronger. The world gov't should be very limited, mostly economic laws. Min wage etc. Obviously we would run into the problem of the world gov't always trying to get bigger/stronger. W/ the internet we all are more informed though, so it's easier to fight back. Every country/region should still have their own rules, and our states/local gov should maintain many laws. Local gov knows whats best for it's people. But a world gov is needed for peace and economic stability

Yeah - - tell the other countries of the world that.

One reason America has been a successful country is our location. We haven't suffered constant/continued military raids from neighboring countries.

Europe/Asia/Africa - - - have been in constant destruction and rebuild mode for centuries. We get one hit on 911 and practically fall apart.

America also has most of its own natural resources.

Is a One World Government Necessary?


Necessary? For what?

Exactly what good does a one world government bring? To be honest, it is almost exactly like having only one place to buy your groceries and only one place to get your internet service... and because they have it all wrapped up in a single, neat bundle, there's no oversight and damned sure no where to run to if your one world government goes on a tear of tyranny.

Someday, in all likelihood, mankind will realize a single world form of governance. But in the right here and right now, that world is not ready. As such, any forced-feeding of this kind of thing upon the world will only result in untold misery and bloodshed... and in the end, there will be more divisions that there are today.

Someday... maybe, but not today.
