So, I was going to start out by asking if it would be completely legal to write and publish a book concerning how to take over the world. It would be solid, scientifically proven and easily done with in ones life-time... this could not be a group effort. Rather, it would 100% rely on the individual.

That's when I decided to google the idea on how to take over the world and I came across this little diamond in the rough. lol

I'm going to only pick a few of my favorites, the rest of them can be viewed by clicking the link.

10. Cytogenetically freeze myself until the world has fallen into perfect socialism and then defreeze. Please refer to ‘Demolition Man’ to indicate how easy the world will be to convert to dictatorship.


6. Go to the remains of the Ottoman Empire, rebuild it, and say that it doesn’t matter, we all die anyway.


13. Create a multi-dimensional vortex to the alternate plane of existence where I already control the world and ask myself how I did it. Copy how I / he had done it.


20. Publish this as a book and indicate how hard I planned to take over the world.

How would you take over the world?

Lets play my favorite game...

Would you rather:
Take over the world, which then leads towards its destruction. Or, be dictated by the world and watch it destroy you?

No wiggle room, one or the other lol!

I would take over the world in the style of Darth Vader and Palpatine, by slow and steady steps until I meat the requisite criteria, then swoop in with "all the answers" and trick the sheeple into giving me carte blanche, then I would rulle all with an iron fist, with swift justice( IMHOn though not so humble) until the rebels over came me because of my wicked ways and killed me off.

They would have to kill me off of course, as I would never surrender the absolute power they gave me. As all tyrants and kings, I would not ever want to give up ultimate power, I would have to be stripped of it by force, and killed as I would simply rally my loyal storm troopers to put down any resistance without mercy or quarter. Death to all who would oppose me, would be the new modo of everyone who desired to continue breathing my air in my world.

So ya I would take over and get got for my ill mannered ways, thus forcing the people to destroy me. I just can't see destroying the whole world, I don't even think it is possible for humans any time before interstellar travel is used wholesale.

Sorry, ruling the world involves entirely too much paperwork.

I would begin visiting all of the local homeless hangouts in my city. Food, warm clothes, some cash, and the promise of employment should endear me to at least a large percentage of them. They will become my shadow force. Largely ignored by most people, the homeless would be my eyes and ears around the city, especially in places where city officials are known to be. Through them I would amass the necessary information to blackmail my way into owning at least a few politicians. From there I will branch out into other cities, befriending the homeless and growing my force of forgotten soldiers....amassing mountains of data that will later be used against those in charge. Eventually my name will be whispered under the bridges and in the alleys. They will begin to come to me on their own and those with former military training will begin pop up boot camps, readying the shadow force for the day when I give the call. When the call comes a wave of well trained, well armed people with very little to lose will rise up and crash upon the unsuspecting world like a tsunami. As this happens I will most likely be deep underground in my supervillain style lair, readying the detonators on the hundreds of weapons that my loyal minions have placed all over the world. At that point the negotiations would begin as I trade historical, political and cultural landmarks for more and more control over everything from military systems to electronic grids.

First start a religion. Grow your religion rapidly with a large recruitment organization. Once you are financially backed by your congregations invest into politics and put candidates into every position state and federal that you can. Eventually you'll getting someone to become president. Once you have control on this level you can start picking off smaller countries adding them to your "cause" by first converting them to your religion. Your army will slowly grow and before you know it no one can stand against you and your church.
