    IMO, perhaps our government can be more efficient and smaller..
    This , I do not know...I am not in government.
    But I do know that man tends to over-re-act (the Patriot bill) as an example..
    We need some response from government people; HONEST government people...IMO, its the nature of man to be dishonest when pushed into a corner.....and he is, I think, by the "small government" tea baggers and their supporters.....

    Re: Do you support a world government?

    Globalisation of economy has already created the beginnings of a worldwide economic cartel, with a handful of companies controling the stake. The kinds of economic treaties that have been signed in the past 10-15 years have divested many nations of their sovereignty. Key businesses have more power than any world government - they've hijacked democracies instead of replacing them with outright autocracy. After all, maintaining the pretense of democracy is enough to fool a lot of people.

    The key pieces missing are a hegemonic suprainternational body that has binding power, and equal mobility across state lines of people just like goods do; but those would be too obvious and would reveal the objective to everyone. No, instead it has to be more subtle.

    Make no mistake, attempts are underway to make world governance a reality, but it's more through economy.

The only problem is there would be no one to trade with so ultimately we would have to work to keep the nation alive trading among each other. Honestly I don't even know if capitalism would work for a world government since there would be no competition. There's a ton of things to considerand I personally think because of human nature a world government in even 200 years isn't possible. But as a hypothetical would you support such a idea?
    if it were possible ,i would support this but world nations havent reached enough capacity to gather to build a peaceful earth ,power struggles would destroy that world goverment soon..........

    I don't support world government; I prefer a decentralization, or devolution, of power. I support universal human and to some extent environmental rights, and world democracy/freedom.

    How would you go about organizing resources to tackle global issues?

    One world government is inevitable. How we get there is going to determine whether or not it is successful.



    If this is the way a one world government come to fruition, then we are all screwed.

    I would think a world government would have to have a light touch. It should have little influence on the internal activities of nations/states. The only place a world government could have jurisdiction would be in interactions between nations/states. I doubt you could get anyone to agree to more than that.

    That is how it would start, yes.

    But power would centralize, as it always does. Some big emergency would come along, and the SCOTUN (supreme court of the united nations) would approve hitherto unknown powers to the world government.

    Oh, and of course secession would also be declared illegal.

    Have a nice tyranny!

    No government, that I am aware of, has a light touch. The nature of government is to grow in power. The nature of just about anything is to grow in power. It's the result of the human creative impulse.

    Damn, I always thought science fiction was fiction and therefore not to be believed.
