Infinite amount of cons.
A bit hasty with the opinion on zero pros? what about no major wars? Traditionally, with nationalism, wars includes vast, vast sums of money that
various countries spend on armaments. Not to mention few civilian casualities, displacement of people and resources, Etc. We need not consider any
other reason better for a one-world government.
Politics stink, why should those of a one-governemt world be any worse than the collective of the whole bunch we exist with today? There would be
little difference and there could be efforts made to do a better job of it than any of our better governed countries do today.
It needs to be understood that nationalism has to be eliminated. That we are one world and should be united around that cause rather than united in
selfdefense efforts. If you are an American, as I am, you have an illusion of freedom and democracy that does not exist and never did. True, we will
be hurt the worst of most people because of our idealism about those freedoms if not some actual advantagles, but everything has a price tag, and war
has the highest one of all.
The larger world view is not had from any vantagle point on earth. It is from space as several of the astronauts have told us. Whether you believe
in UFOs or not, surely you would agree that an outside viewpoint on earth's inhabitants is not one that any decent alien race would admire. And if
you were to dwell on it with much thought, you may conclude that perhaps the UFOs are
alien craft and they have been influencing some of the
major earth governments to change. You see, we average citizens are caught in a dilemma that does not make sense in light of how we view ourselves
and nationalism. Why would any of the great Western powers start wanting to give away their powers to lessor countries unless they had no choice? We
can suspect a mandate came down from on-high, change, become better at simply being humans, or suffer the consequences. Some of countries would not
change for the world, as the old saying goes, but that is exactly why they must
change, for their and our actual survival.
