I think we could achieve most of what you mentioned, minus no hate, dishonesty or inequality.
Firstly, I'll explain my stance on that, then give my little idea of what such a world would look like. So, hate and dishonesty, we ain't getting past
those. Or greed now that I think of it. Those are ingrained in humans like any other emotion or skill. I say skill, because that's exactly what lying
is, a learned skill. We will use it (most of us anyway) to one degree or another whenever it may serve to protect us from whatever the threat, real or
imagined. For as long as we feel fear, especially of the truth, we will use lies.
So far as hate and greed go, they are emotions that are essential to both survival and the human experience. Hatred is a hard thing to earn with most
people, and when someone does hate something it is usually because they have been done a great wrong by the subject of their hatred. Hate then drives
us to do what we normally would not. Though this may sometimes lead to tragedy, it also saves lives. Hate prepares us for battle against the predators
of this world. And greed, well, greed drives us, pure and simple. We both need and want, and believe it or not. you do sometimes need the things that
you want - holy shat, that rhymed. Anyways, greed is what has gotten man to this current pinnacle of society that we now live. Greed is here to
That being said, I can see the rest being achieved in a century or so. Of course, I wouldn't like to see a world without religion. I'm no proponent of
organized religion, but I'm a firm believer in a citizen's right to believe in whatever they like and discuss it as well. I love talking about
spirituality and the afterlife,; it's one of my few joys in life, and a world without it would be dull in my eyes. But, a world where we teach from an
early age that nothing of the afterlife can really be known until death, and you just have to make your best guess if any at all, that would be a
world with far less conflict.
No war, that we can achieve through one world government; once the concept is perfected that is. Nowadays, government is too easily corrupted to give
any assortment of individuals that mush power. Now, if we were to say, declare bribing a public official to provide political favors an act of
treason, plus the taking of that bribe, well, that's a mighty fine deterrent. Plus, regulations on lobbying would help, and the laying of tax burdens
on corporations would help. Why tax the common man when all he's doing is playing the game he was forced into? After we take measures like that, well,
maybe the whole thing could work. Imagine the entire earth split up into little districts, with representatives from each voted in by the people of
their district, and a few higher ups voted one by those reps. There would be so damn many politicians, with so many special interests to think of,
that almost nothing but the bare minimum would ever be achieved. And hell, isn't that what governments are there for?
A world like this, in my mind, would look far more prosperous and advanced. Life would be simpler, and opportunities more accessible. Without the
common drama of this age, we could focus as one people, acting together, on achieving true greatness as a species. We could take our brightest minds
and set them together with the most challenging goals in mind. We could give our most creative one night in the same room, and watch them build the
future on the ideas discussed at that symposium. We could take our most virtuous, and put them in power. That world would be different.
