If I were to rule the World

Updated on August 6, 2014

Ruling with humility


If I were to rule the World,

I would require all parents to take responsibility and control for the upbringing of their children with family, civic and social values, and leave only the academic education of their children to the schoolteachers. All children would be required to attend school up to the primary stage, and parents would be urged to actively participate with the schools in their children’s development.

If I were to rule the World,

I would ensure that citizens all over the world would have access to basic health care, clean water and sanitation, electricity and basic infrastructure. All citizens would have access to the Internet, and technical schools, community college and university education would be available to all, so that societies the world over would haven a well-educated population and workforce. I would strive for all businesses to flourish and work tirelessly with the owners, unions and other stakeholders to provide an enabling environment, so that they create employment for all those entering the job market. I would work in earnest to enable each country to reach its maximum economic potential, so that citizens of each country are happy to continue living in their country and would have little incentive to leave their countries and seek to enter other countries illegally and at grave risk to their lives.

If I were to rule the World,

I would strengthen international institutions so that they are competent enough to resolve disputes and achieve peace in all regions of the world. No nation or region should have the power to dictate his or her will to other regions. I would strive to unite people all over the world, and urge them to view us as part of a global village. Natural resources need to be recognized as resources that belong to our Planet, to be shared by all the citizens, and a process would be established by which such resources would be available to all, rather than just the nation where they are located.

If I were to rule the World,

I would strive to make our planet safer and reduce the need to resolve conflicts with arms and ammunition. I would ensure that no region is engaged in an arms race, and I would work ceaselessly for nuclear disarmament and remove the threat of all nuclear weapons. I would work earnestly on convincing citizens that it is counterproductive for individuals to heavily arm themselves for protecting themselves, and work on controlling availability of assault and other sophisticated, automatic weapons. I would eventually create an environment where all citizens would feel safe enough to not have to carry a weapon; if required, they can carry ordinary handguns for their protection.

If I were to rule the World,

I would require all citizens to protect our wonderful planet for all that it has provided us. I would require that we leave the planet for our future generations in the same if not better than the state we have inherited it. All citizens would need to recognize that our rapid modernization has come at a cost to the state of our planet, and all would need to put in place measures that have proven to minimize damage and pollution to the air that we breathe, and to the rivers, oceans, flora and fauna that surround us and on which our very lives depend. I would actively move away our energy dependence on coal, oil and other polluting resources to renewable and more environment-friendly resources like wind, solar, hydro-electric, nuclear and geothermal.

If I were to rule the World,

…would I just be able to make the world a better place for us all to live in….?

      Prakash if you were to rule the world the will of God would be done on Earth. All of God's children would be able to say "Free at Last". If you fail to have it all your way, the world would still be a better place. Continue to do what you can as Prakash Dighe.

      Prakash, great hub. I think if you "ruled the world" it just might be a better place. We need more people who think this way. Thanks for sharing with us.
