I don’t think that any one nation will ever achieve world domination, and as far as the larger nations go I doubt they’d try. The United States learned their lesson on imperialism during the Philippine Wars. The English learned their lesson after the British mandate in the middle east fell apart around WWII. Honestly, many territories aren’t worth dominating.

However, that’s not to say that I don’t think the world will ever be dominated. I think that the world will eventually fall to an organization of nations similar to the UN. We’ve seen similar patterns on smaller scale throughout the history of mankind. Sparta managed to dictate the entire Peloponnesus of Greece through the Peloponnesian League. Even today we see nations blindly following the whim of stronger rivals. I mean, look at Australia and the US. Australia follows the United States like a blind puppy.

The European Union, Asian hegemonies, the British monopolies and mandates in Africa…the UN itself…

Actually, by 2050 China will no longer have the world’s largest population. India’s growing faster than China. Plus, China's already got a lot of issues. Over population, environmental decline, and of course martial conflicts.

No country will, eventually the UN will have more power and there will sadly be a one world government. Bureaucracy will take over the world.

That is so untrue it is ridiculous. Currently, the UN has little to no power whatsoever. Chances are any country that tries to conquer extended areas (of land or population) will fall at some time. Take Rome of the Mongolian Empire for example.

A few people probably can, maybe even us, but it is very unwise. Plus, who wants countries like Russia anyway? Its a fucking cold desert up there.

If you've read 1984...a quite interesting novel,
Even if we joined into superstates with authoritative governments that concentrate on war/world domination
It really isn't possible. No matter how powerful one country might seem on its own, without others it is ultimately powerless.
Everyone would be evenly matched int he end....
and if the world REALLY got into a stage as horrific as that...then the standard of living will really decrease drastically and people will be living in poverty and fear always. Something we definitely don't want to even contemplate.


kind of like how alexander the great, caesar, and napoleon fell. history proves world dominations is impossible...of course unless someone like me tries it out

i think india and pakistan will destroy themselves . though war . sad really but it looks like muslims are willing to die to achieve there Islamic goals.

also think the eu , china , russia and an alliance between south and north america will rule the world in my opinion.

China has a good chance of becoming the worlds sole super power, but they can't take the States out just yet. China says it will be able to take out the U.S. by 2025 , it will likely involve a lot of hackers from China assaulting the west's networks causing all sorts of chaos.


Pshhh by what a DDoS attack on the U.S. government? China would never be able to take out the US. Pre WW2 maybe, but now due to nuclear threat's I would like to see their government try, and you would see China's population drop drastically if we were losing if you catch my drift.

And the US government's shit doesn't exactly run off of Windows. I would love to see them try to take the architecture they know nothing about though.
