The problem with government is that a small group of people cannot govern the interests of millions, let alone billions. sure, 500 people can
represent and meet the interests of maybe 5 million people successfully, but 320+ million? 7 billion? No way in hell.
The only way a world governing system would work, in theory, is if there was no central government, but rather a one world parliamentary system in
which each country, or nation-state, would elect a representative. Even then, things get very complicated. There are too many conflicts of interest
within the world for there to be a peaceful one world government. We would basically come back to where we are.
The first step to fixing this is to create a one world religion, or rather abolish religion altogether. Religion, and the bigotry that often
accompanies it, has been the culprit behind so many wars and so much bloodshed throughout history; they must be done away with if we are to ever
achieve world peace.
The mere fact that a majority of otherwise mentally stable people in the world buy into the god myth is very telling of how deserving we are of
cultural and spiritual evolution. Simply put, we're no where near a one world government or one world religion. We're so separated and full of
hatred for our fellow man and our planet; how can one create peace in the world if he or she cannot create peace in himself? People are full of war,
full of hell, and they think that they can harbor these beliefs and feelings and somehow achieve a remarkable, sustainable, one world government?
The world will change when people change; until then, we can repeat the same actions and expect the same results. All change starts within, otherwise
it is not genuine.
On a side note, another major factor in establishing a one world government is putting the right people behind it; if a power as large as a one world
government becomes corrupt, the lives and livelihoods of all citizens will be at stake.
There is something to be said about sustainability: assuming that a one world currency is established to accompany said government, there will need to
be much taxation. Stop regurgitating this mindless babble about tax free peace and equality; you want peace and equality? Work to eliminate poverty.
How does one do this? Tax the hell out of those with more money and provide social services to those who are less financially fortunate. Everyone
would need to pay tax, regardless if it is 1% for the lowest income bracket and 50% for the highest income bracket; you want connectivity, be prepared
to support your fellow neighbor, regardless of whether he or she is living next door to you, or across the world from you.
We have the potential to create a society worth being a part of, but that's just it: potential. Selflessness must manifest and replace our
selfishness if we are to evolve; the We must replace the I.
