    Right to bear arms? You mean insurrection? Rebellion? Then your cities would be burned to the ground, and you would be conquered and reassimilated.

    I enjoy the right to bear arms in America. In spite of this, or perhaps, because of this, my cities have thus far not been burned to the ground nor have I been conquered. Assimilation was never an issue since I was born here.

    Then I say we turn the tables on T.H.E.Y. and form a one world republic before T.H.E.Y. try to "scam us" in such a terribly destructive manner.

    How about that?

    Wait a second. Let's back up.

    I asked what happens if the world government stops being sensetive to your rights. In your reply, you indicated that you would then use your right to keep and bear arms.

    Were you talking about taking up arms against the oppresive world government or not? Maybe I misunderstood you.

    OK, here's my project for The Constitution.

    1. Thou shall not stick your nose in others people's business. (a.k.a. m.y.o.b.).
    2. One shall not do to others what one doesn't want done to him/her (steal, lie, cheat, kill, etc.)

    Is it OK?

    If it comes to that, yes.

    Of course, having an armed populace that is also guaranteed the freedom of speech, press, and assembly, has worked wonders in America towards keeping the nation generally free of oppressive government.

    This is no accident. A well-armed militia, in the form of a majority of the citizenry, greatly discourages the possibility of an oppressive regime being installed by any cabal of would-be schemers.

    Not OK. You left out a whole bunch of stuff.

    You see, that's the problem. The more common the political structure, the more abstract it should be, imho. If we start forging detailed laws and regulations, like "thou shall have your face visible" (that may upset the Islamists) or "thou shall have a bath at least once a week", well... Finally, we will end up with a dictatorship of the most terrible kind.

    So you and your friends with hunting rifles are going to mount an insurrection against the world government, that has tanks, cluster munitions, daisy cutters, and atomic weapons?

    They will call you traitorous terrorists, and they bring down a storm of lead on you, your families, and your town. You will be wiped out, and the global news may not even note it in their nightly report.
