    And who enforces those?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Have you carefully considered the logic of your post?

    Seems to me that a one world government would prevent the likelihood of a third world war, not precipitate it.

    If a world republic is to be at all possible, it would need to be keenly sensitive to varying cultural mores, as well as keenly respectful of individual liberty, most especially the right to freedom of speech, religion, assembly, and press, the right to bear arms, the right to privacy, and the right to due process of law.

    This is possible.

    Actually no, they will start WW3 to scare people into the OWG scam, not the other way round.

    I would support a world government only so long as membership was completely voluntary. As long as it had a built-in right to unilateral secession, I'd be fine with it.

    I believe that people should always be free to withdraw from their current government and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.

    People living under a government that forbids secession are little more than slaves.

    Until the government STOPS being sensitive to such things. And then what do you do?

    Obviously, an elected constitution would be absolutely required if we are considering a world republic.

    You employ your rights to freedom of speech, assembly, the press, as well as the right to bear arms, obviously. This is why such individual rights would have to be a non-negotiable condition of such a world republic constitution.
