What would the world be like without politics, governments, money or religion?

    What would the world be like without politics, governments, money or religion?

    I listened to the song Imagine by John Lennon and thought about how the world would be like without politics, governments, money or religion. What would the world be without people fighting or arguing because of their beliefs and their greed?

    wouldn't it be nice? Unfortunately, conflict will never go away completely because it is a part of human nature.

    I'd like to think that it would be a better world. But you can't civilisation without the things listed above. Sad, but true.

    Mars? A planet devoid of all life? One person left in the world with no glasses so can't see the demolished statues after the armageddon?

    Now if we take our colored glasses off, we will see the other side.....

    It will be very chaotic!
    No Politic: whoever is in power will not let go of it, and do whatever they desire; (rings a bell?)
    No government: No Laws
    No Money: ??
    No religion: no morals, no guidance

    Who exploits all these: human
    No human: world will be a peaceful place!

    Think about it......

    No doubt, for decades people have been constantly arguing over money; They disagree with each other's religious beliefs, political affiliation or even point of view.
    God created a beautiful world, we have everything in abundance for survival and happiness --- so there is nothing wrong with this world! The problems are created by the people living in this world. Thus, if we could learn to sit down amongst ourselves like tribesmen and come to an agreement as to how we are going to share the wealth of this world so that everyone can have enough to survive then we shouldn't need governments or politicians. However, religion is another story, but if we could get rid of "religion" and just concentrate on the existence of God we would be okay.

    Unfortunately these institutions you would like to remove are the building blocks of civilisation.So I would have to try and imagine the world of the pastrol hunter-gathers. Small bands not even tribe sized yet but unfortunately there would be conflict over hunting areas,water supply,and slaves it seems we have always coverted our nieghbours.

    Would that be the definition for Heaven on Earth if it included no lawyers.

    A world without politics, governments, money or religion doesn't necessarily mean a world without people fighting because of their beliefs and greed. Only a world without people will not have politics, governments, money or religion. These are the building blocks of human race and without them, all hell will break loose, destroying the entire civilization. I will illustrate this with a simple example. Many world countries have nuclear power, but none of them are using it because of the power and clout enjoyed by governments.

    Most people think that without the current situation of society plaguing us, the world will generally be a better place. However personally I will dismiss that as naive thinking.

    People are born with strong survival instincts. As Steve Jobs said "everybody wants to go to heaven but no one wants to die to get there". Survival has always been a game where the fittest are the ones on top and most likely - alive. Without the global currency of money DOESN'T remove greed. Greed is a temptation and instinct of survival. If we don't fight for money, we fight for other things. Everything in this world is of limited supply including sunlight, where the sun is believed to be a star and would one day die out too.

    Religion to me is pretty similar to law. Where they preach for you to do good or risk being punished and sent to the depths of hell. Without law and religion, people would likely to be free to do whatever they want whenever they want. What kind of world would that exactly be is as good as anyone's guess but I can foresee it being a very very chaotic situation where people run amok. Many people are conforming to societal requirements because they are afraid of the consequences of breaking the law or doing something immoral. When such psychological restriction is removed there is no limiting to what all people could end up doing.

    Instead of the world that many imagine would be freed from the sufferings of civilization may end up bringing the bloodshed of barbarism.
