    Whats it gona take to bring the world together? Aliens.
    The human psyche eneds an 'other' to define an 'us'. Its extremely problematic.

    Nevermind the fact that political ideology, nationalism, economic self-intrest and so on has undoubtably started more wars and killed more people than religion, though many ambitious conquerors have abused religion as an excuse to invade their neighbor because the conqueror wanted the neighbor's land/resources/wealth/serfs.

    Could not have put it any better myself. Well OK I could have, but that's not the point!

    No. With total acceptance there is no diversity.
    If the other guys culture or religion was so great we would all convert or move there.

    As it is now there is a salad bar acceptance. Pick and choose what you want.
    Trouble comes when someone elses "acceptance" equates making someone "approve" of their whatever.

    Being of one mind has caused a bit of death as well.

    The idea is good one but all we can do is wave as it passes by.
    nope-some of us are producers or hosts and some are parasites or takers. One party runs on supporting the producers and trying to limit parasites. THe other pary not only caters to the parasites, it does everything possible to expand their numbers.

    It is like saying will ticks and dogs ever truly unite as friends.

    Re: Will people ever truly unite?

    I can see getting clubed like a harp seal for this response.

    We can unite but some ideas need to be discarded with first.

    1. Religion needs to go.
    2. Private propertty needs to go.
    3. Nations and references to national pride need to go.
    4. Borders need to fade.
    5. Universal money.
    6. universal language would have to be in the works.
    7. The UN or a group like that would have to take change.

    Individual nation states could no longer exist.

    IMO religion is the biggest barrier to unity.

    Re: Will people ever truly unite?

    Asking about unity is a veiled attempt to decry the fact that the government cannot control its citizens as much as the decrier wants, among other forms of control and tantrum-throwing.
    Let's figure it out.

    Private property needs to go? You mean you wish to get rid of a persons rights to have private property? Or something else?

    Borders need to fade? So we should simply open the flood gates and just let everyone in?

    Universal money? That scares me. It sounds like you are on the New World Order Team.

    Do you understand that as much as we may wish for it that there will never be any such thing as Universal Love? I really wish but feel it is a pipedream.
