It will take something big though to bring people to that day.something that would damage the environment and the planet so severely that it will
change the way that we have to live but that doesn`t completely destroy the planet and the environment.
I don`t know what it might be, maybe a limited nuclear war that makes parts of the planet uninhabitable.it would need to be something that scares all
people enough and makes them feel very lucky to still be alive that they are willing to give up all their freedoms to ensure that nothing like that
could ever happen again.
something that makes the people who weren`t directly affected by it to say " that could have been us, that could be us if we don`t do something
drastic to make sure it never happens again"
It`s not "if" that day will come but "when".

good points Tardacus, but that's exactly what they're counting on. A peaceful and secured existence n exchange for self governance.
Thus this banner - or rally cry if you will for "peace and security" is a powerful incentive in uniting the world. Nothing like it in existence
right now has the capability ability to achieve such cause.
Name one - you can't because the circumstances are what pushing it to come about.
1) The fear of nuclear exchange between warring Nations. Take for example, Iran becoming a nuclear power. The fear is NOT Iran having the "bomb" but
their willing allies getting it from Iran. Israel as a free nation with its own (nuclear) arsenal will NOT allow such danger to come about. If
permitted to happen, the world will be embroiled in an unimaginable catastrophe. Thus the U.N security council MUST stepped in to prevent such
nightmare. The solution - peaceful coexistence - for the sake of "peace and security" of the world. The world will demand this - we've seen it
expressed in the UN body council.
To post Severin's quote:
The world is changing, and with it the demands on the United Nations. The UN provides a unique platform for international action. It offers
unparalleled legitimacy for global engagement, owing to its universal membership; its inclusive decision-making processes; its unequalled reach;
and its ability to provide critical services that are essential to international peace, security, stability and prosperity.
The members of the U.N body has put this "obligation" upon themselves as a "legitimacy for global engagement". An authority to determine the
future of the world.
2) Economic collapse - this is very real and we're already seeing it in Europe. The United States economy is anemic and is weakening. Result - mass
hysteria and hopelessness. The rich are pitted with the poor resulting in anarchy if not addressed soon. Thus something is needed to rally the
hopeless masses. There's no other powerful and a "just" cause out there other than the promise of a "peaceful and secured world". Who can be
3) Terrorism - affects all. People are getting fed up with it and will demand it to be stopped else it will grow like a cancer in every part of the
"civilized world". Right now the U.N. is weak because it doesn't have the "teeth" to deal with such formidable foe. But once the member nations
pledge to strengthen the Security Council - then only then that body will be a formidable force. I expect in the coming months/years - this will be
4) a STRONG advocate in the White House with the backing of Congress has now emerge to tackle such issue.
Any way there are other equally important matters that will demand such cry to happen if you catch my drift.
BTW - there's no such thing as a "limited nuclear war" only MAD - Mutual Assured Destruction.
