    Humanity has always grown more united through history, going from tribes to city-states, city-states to nations.

    In larger states we can pool resources, with better cooperation.

    A world where the government can give you all is a world where the government can also take it all. History shows it usually happens the last.

    I have a question before we move on: are you newbies (hashmann and Saykine) with less than 20 posts, related in some way? Can a mod check if they are different persons, at least, please?

    I recently read something from the MIT courseware .... utilitarianism .... it means that the government will structure policy so that it benefits the greater ....
    we just need to trust the government ... what is the other option?

    war in all the arab countries?
    economic failure in the US and EU

    I have disagreed with hashmann on several points in this thread, why would we be the same person?

    If you are unaware of the English Civil War and its consequences, you are not qualified to suggest any kind of political system. Go and do some studying and come back when you've learned about the origins of modern liberal democracy.

    I won't say too much as it'll risk derailing the topic (if this topic was ever 'on the rails' to begin with..) but the English Civil War created a huge change in democratic politics, turning an Absolute Monarchy into a Constitutional Monarchy among other things.

    I think you're focusing too much on terminology ....

    in Australia she sacked that whitlam guy a while ago
