    Do you support a world government?

    Obviously a huge hypothetical as we are not ready for a world government yet, but in the future if all nations have become democratic in nature would you support the United Nations of Earth so to speak? Could each nation work as a state and have different nations rights like we have state rights? 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?

    Washington DC, and the politicians thereof, are quite sufficiently out of touch with the lives of their citizens as it is. I would not wish to be subject to the whims of legislation that originated in Bangaladesh or Zimbabwe.

    I would agree which is why this is not in sight right now, but with a better less corrupt democratic system that makes politicians pay for their choices it may be possible in the far future.

    No, a world government wouldn't work without being a dictatorship.

    maybe. It would depend on the structure. If it were like the current UN or the IMF, the big countries could jut dominate. If we came to recognize ourselves as earthlings or something like that. ATM we are just too divided.

    The only way that a world government would work is if you first got rid of religions, Leftists, Rightists, Etc. and soccer...

    I think it'll have to happen eventually.

    No. Everybody has their own set of local concerns.

    Not at all. It sounds too Orwellian.

    The government is already a form of cancer that is out of control and is spreading everywhere. If you have a tumor do you wish it were larger?

    It's not the idea of a one-world-system which is the problem. If implemented, those who would be in control are those in control now. It would simply be the same people with even more power.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
