As long as it's not the Vatican doing the ruling I don't see a problem. Nothing against any one religion, but religion has no business ruling
anything except their own organization. Religion should be used to appease the spiritual preferences of specific people. That's it. That's where it
According to what I read in the article though that's not what the Pope is referring to. He believes it's humanity in general who should be in
charge of themselves. Not to be too hard on the guy but I really don't think he's firmly entrenched in reality. I check the news periodically to see
what's going on in the world and it's the same old same old. There are too many countries with too many differences of opinion, ideologies,
viewpoints and methods of operation for them all to come together and live as one. To hope for it one thing, but to believe it's actually going to
happen with the way the whole structure is set up.........that's a pipe dream at best.
There would HAVE to be one entity in charge and that one entity would have to be impersonal in nature. As evidenced when you look at the world around
you, there are way too many differences in this world to realistically expect them to be relegated under one set of laws. There are brilliant minds in
this world but I don't think anyone can draft a constitution that can put a fair and equal blanket over everything. It's just not possible. The only
realistic option I can see is to run the whole shebang like a business. If there's one common denominator that all countries have in common it's a
monetary system. And if you think about it, money is about the most impersonal thing you can have your pocket.
And just like a board of directors, you would have to have numerous people of slightly varying backgrounds to help keep everything running smoothly
and to keep the best interest of the shareholders, the individual leaders of various countries, in mind. You will have differences of opinion creeping
in, that's just nature doing her thing, so you would have to have a system of legal checks and balances set up to self-regulate itself.
So sorry all you religious people out there, but organized religion isn't qualified for that job. I know who is, but since my point of view isn't
taken seriously in certain circles, my point of view is beside the point. All I know when I look at the world around me is that you have different
countries in the eastern hemisphere with different ideologies and different currencies that are trading, buying, selling and otherwise bartering
weapons of mass destruction. That's what they they do and they destabilize the entire world as a result. Picture a company with branches scattered
across the country. Now picture those branches fighting amongst themselves for a piece of the pie that home office itself baked. Pretty silly isn't.
Not to mention counter-productive for the entire country. I'm all for internal competition. It's financially healthy. But that's not what I see
when I look around. I see see greed and personal agendas getting in the way. The ideal one world government would put an end to all the bickering and
back-biting and let everyone get down to the business of life without worrying if a bomb is going to explode outside their god damn _
Peace for profit. What a concept. With all the emphasis that people in every country in the world seems to put on money, you would think that what I
just wrote would have been the solution all along. Apparently not though. Again, people with my point of view aren't taken seriously because we
formulate realistic options for productivity. Everybody is so concerned with hidden agenda's, they're concerned with intangibles, that reality
passes them by. They can't see the forest through the trees.
I'm all for a good conspiracy theory now and then but you can't let it blind you to the facts of life. All you little people on the totem pole, do
yourselves a favor. Don't associate me with this post. Keep it impersonal, keep it to yourself and adopt it as your own mindset. You'll see soon
enough how well it can work. Then, come see me and thank me. Just leave me out of the mix of the crowd. I prefer to stay anonymous. AND on top.
