Should our planet have a one world government?
Biblical and political fears aside, would this be better for humanity?
What do you think?
Good concept but I think we would destroy ours-selves before that would happen. On that note, I think whatever government we have people are still not going to be satisfied. Leading back to were we started.

Yeah, I know. And you are probably right. But when I look at who we treat each other and things like our ecology and resources, a good government could help eliminate this problem.
The operative phrase here though, is 'good government'.
Leaders are too selfish when in power which we have seen through out history. The ladder to the top isn't made to be climbed by people like me and you.
Sometimes the green grass on the other side of the fence looks perfect because its fake.
As it happens, I am a strong supporter of having just one World government. In fact, if you check my profile and some of my submittals, you'll see that I am already politicking to be King of the World..... and have many strong attributes to offer, and am a reasonably fair-mindd and level-headed individual.....
By the by, once I am King, I'll be looking for many advisors, regarding various subjects.... So, if you think you qualify, please let me know....
A one world government may sound great is some scenarios, however the vast differences in culture and religion, as well as economic problems world wide, create this concept to be unrealistic. The direct difference in social issues and governing bodies, such as in China where there is communism, and Russia, as well as other countries that have a more socialistic form of government in addition to the outright dictatorships of some, make it an impossibility to establish a one world governing body. It could be met with great opposition and much bitter warring would be the result leading to the obvious conclusion that this would not be feasible on this planet at this time. If there were such a great calamity to befall us on this planet and there was no other alternative, then perhaps a one world governing body might be viable. It would still be a great challenge world wide.
Every utopian dream like this one sounds good until you see it start to play out in the real world. Karl Marx thought he was offering a great idea, and yet almost every Socialist or Communist country has been founded on conflict and conquest. A unified world government would only work by trampling the rights and freedoms of most of the world, and I don't know of any person who has ever described a one world government that I would be eager to choose as my leader.
Not my utopian dream, but something that may become a necessity due to a lack of resources and over population. If you see tsunami coming we can run, or try to change its course. I'd rather not be ruled by those I did not elect.
Eugene - one world government doesn't change the number of people on the planet nor the amount of resources used. And the bigger a government is the more it is destructive like a tsunami. And you will still be subject to those you didn't elect.

One world government is the tsunami,and in terms of who control the resources it is already here. In general, I do not like the idea because someone is going to lose their freedom or resources or both. Why not turn the tide?
Okay, we're on the same page if you don't believe in a one world government because, as you say, it is the tsunami.

But, do you understand what I'm trying say?
Apparently not. I cannot accept a government that controls a sovereign people, because governments do not dictate individual freedom or life -- that is the domain of God. And since governments are made up of men then men control gov not the reverse
You have part of it I guess.
The problem is that since men create governments, men can declare a world wide sovereignty, and all previous sovereignty null and void. And if government were a bad thing then anarchy would be OK.
Why not one for all?
I don't like the idea. If I don't agree with the government, I like the ability to move to different areas so I can find the government that I agree with. If there is only one choice, there isn't much choice.
A one world government could never work. It would require Nation States and their citizens to forfeit sovereignty. We have seen this "one world order" attempted throughout history in the form of the Roman Empire and the British Empire. One thing they do have in common is that they always fail. A second issue that they have in common is the constant "war" necessary to maintain that one world government.
Frankly, one of the issues that a one world government brings into focus is the reality that it limits individual choice. For instance, if an individual is persecuted or financially repressed in one country the individual can always move to another country that offers the lifestyle sought. However, under a one world government there is but one game in town. And the issue will always be whose game is it -- democratic, socialist, communist, representative republic, capitalism, corporate statism, Islam. Then there are the issues of religion and the makeup of the Constitution. Then there is the legal system -- common law, sharia law, cannon law etc. And of course then there is the "race" issue of who rules --- blacks, whites, Muslims, Asians etc. And with this comes various factions and tribes.
Furthermore, there is the issue of "rule". Who is going to be chosen to rule? It is human nature that Germans will want to lead and Americans will feel that they should lead. A one world government requires individuals to change thousands of years of evolution and basic human nature. In fact, I can envision years of war to settle the issues as to what type of political system would be most appropriate.
As a model of dysfunction of such as system is the Eurozone. This system is under stress no due to deteriorating economic conditions and it is most likely that the Euro will collapse. So I do not envision a viable workable global system.
The more area a government covers, the larger and less caring a government os. Smaller governments worry more about the citizens and making their lives better.
There is also the fact that if you don't like a government, you are free to move to another area, with a different type government.
It is something on the order of churches. We all do not feel comfortable in the same type of church. It is good to find one we are comfortable in. Governments are the same way. We can find the one we feel comfortable with.
This is why I do not like the idea of one world government and also why I do not appreciate our President trying to turn this into a socialist country.
A one world government is something Hitler, Stalin and other dictators wanted to achieve. We all know where it ended ...

Would a world government put an end to national friction? A world government could help stabilize resources, so that religious concerns would no longer control the economies of non believers.

There should be no borders separating nations, agree or disagree?The fact that we have different nations, different interests, culture etc. Do you think that it is more better if we have no borders?
