    Our world, today, is not in great shape. We are plagued with killing each other in wars, pollution is on the rise, and global warming is a growing problem. We have people living lives of luxury, as people halfway around the world and even on the streets we live on, beg for spare change just to eat. Leaders, lawmakers, and other people of power live the most lavish lifestyles of all their subjects. Global security is achieved through a terrible project known as MAD, or Mutually Assured Destruction. It’s pathetic; we saved ourselves by threatening to kill ourselves. How does society look lie this? This is what happens when you step outside society and sit on the sidelines, silently observing. This is what I have done, and I believe there is only one solution that will help the human race advance further and faster than we could possibly imagine. I propose a unified world, where we view each other not at Germans, Russians, Africans, Christians, Jews, Muslims as well as countless others, but as a species living in harmony to achieve greatness. All governments would come together to form a globally united community. There would not be several hundred nations where the powerful ones can override the lesser nations, but there would be one nation, Earth. All current nations, pooling their resources together, create a powerful economy with a unified currency and a powerful military, capable of quelling all groups who infringe the people’s rights. Instead of spending money on creating weapons to kill each other, that money could go to curing diseases and expanding the influence of the human race. Am I talking about throwing away religion? Taking away what makes us individual? No. Religions may be an acceptable part of our society. However, religious leaders will be treated as members of the general population. Religions maybe altered so that they do not infringe on anyone’s rights or jeopardize global security. Different regions can still generate their own culture, but they cannot contradict any worldwide laws. I propose no borders, passports or customs. We will all be citizens of one nation, united under a large democratic government, heavily influenced by the people. Welfare programs would be put into place to improve the condition of living for all. This powerful government is capable of quickly reacting to any major issue, should one arise. The government would be for the people, doing its best to improve their lifestyles, and allowing each human being to be able to wake up each morning and not be in fear of their lives. The people are what is comes down to, and I believe that a unified human race could be capable of achieving things we only dream of today. Yes, it will be a difficult transition, but I believe the results are worth it. So now I ask you the people, are you willing to take on the challenge of creating a unified world, a unified species, to achieve global security and, in the end, or wildest dreams?
    Does this sound appealing?

    It would turn the whole world into a PC nightmare.

    No freedom of thought.

    Everybody must do and act the same.

    Basically a communist paradise.

    Isn't it sad that the only species on the planet that knows the difference between right and wrong willingly chooses wrong time after time.

    And I doubt we'll be around long enough to achieve anything approaching the kind of world suggested in the OP.

    That is exactly what the Bible says, and why the people want it.They will buy into it hook,line and sinker.
    It will be ruled by one President- a dictator in disguise. Promising all kinds of things and then turns the tables to complete totalitarianism.
    It will not work and in 7 short years it's going to go down in flames.

    Im sorry, maybe im just suffering from a short attention span but I can't read anything not separated in paragraph form right now. If you want to edit the post so it's organized and coherent so that people can read and understand it, that's fine. Or if you want to sum it up thats fine too. I just am not going to try to translate that.

    Yes, it was a bit hard to read. Please, OP, no offense at all, but it would just be easier to read also if it was broken down in paragraphs, etc, tyvm!

    Let me guess. You are a college freshman or sophmore who just took some intro to poli sci or intro to philosophy class. I bet you are reading about utopian thought and philosophy or marxisim. What till you grow up and see how the work really works. :cuckoo:
