It is bad, there is nothing good about nationalism that relies on governance.

Sure, what the heck. I mean, all previous attempts have been so warmly welcomed.

The problem with a "world" government is religion. That is the thorn that will never go away. There is simply no way to remove religious doctrine from mainly Christian, Jewish, or Muslim governments. It simply won't happen and you're delusional to think otherwise. A secular government would offend the entire hardcore Jewish/Muslim/Christian world.

Beyond that, you have massively complex economic, trade, cultural, and monetary differences to work out. A single government would not be a simple process if done peacefully.

The only way to form a "one world government" is through lethal force. Peace can not be achieved through talking nor can world wide consensus. You have to kill, not conquer, those that oppose you. Then you have to erase their religious beliefs and destroy all historical documents of said belief. If you leave any religion intact out of compassion, your one nation government will quickly fall.

You will have to turn any country that opposes the new world government into a glass parking lot or your halcyon plan of a one world nation, will fail.

You will have to crush everyone before you can free them.

i believe it would be bad due to conflicts in ideas. we already have conflicts at current over different ideals (religion, sadly, tends to be the cause of most now) and if we had one central body telling us what is right or wrong, those who disagree with the decided views/beliefs will basically have a perfect reason for attempting mutiny (or probably more commonly assassination)...

on top of this i also believe that we would need to enact a fair system for governing a global scale which again would lead to more fighting... i am a strong believer of those who think we are truly a "free" or "democratic" society are naive, as democracy suggests we choose who is in power... we don't choose who is in power as proven in Australian politics with how the current PM got into power (Kevin Rudd was who we picked but the labor party kicked him out of the position without anyone else's consent and elected a new person, Julia Gillard... keep in mind I'm not saying she can't do the job I'm just saying she didn't run for the job but got elected anyway). we did not choose her nor did we really choose who was in power as the average person wouldn't even be considered for that job , no matter how many people voted for them, nor can just anyone run for the position in the first place.

Well, that's why I said "in the future" because you can't really predict how much things can change in the long run while living in an ever-changing society. Also, who says the whole world will have to be run by the laws of other countries, does the United Nations follow the laws of one specific country? no. It's all a democratic process based on the standard of how things should be run so to maintain a peaceful and equal society.

Yeah--trouble is that they are all different types of animals, so they'd be busy eating each other instead of pulling the harness. . .

That is in fact the exact reason I found the analogy so enjoyable

We have the United Nations...

We're getting there (to a One World Government), and eventually, as a species, if we're going to go anywhere (advance to colonizing other worlds) we must UNITE!(or destroy any opposition with one belief)

Honestly, I'm fine with that, as long as our freedoms are respected.

very interesting subject. right now from what i have research and watch, is that we are heading to a unite world. the internet already does this right now. we are in a transition periods of going form a type 0 to a type one civilization. now we have half the world not know this but going against it and other people who doe know about it but don't like and others that do like it and support it. the clash and mix of culture witch is happening right now you seen it in china, in India and other country that coming out of 3rd world statues.hey here we love anime witch came from japan and love the way japanses people live(will that what i think) and we ingrate the with our own culture where we live.

Fuck Centralization , I want my Freedom , only needy people need to have a big government to tell them what to do. Anyone that sacrifices their independence for a false sense of security deserves what they get

What if this new world government isn't secular as you portray, but religious. How would the world like living under Sharia Law?


Under theocracy you say? It'll be sexist, repressive, and the world might as well be reduced further into a worse cesspit than it is today. What I will say about the perverted form of Sharia law that is often portrayed negatively and ill-practiced by reprehensible, intolerant youth and extremists: "F*** that". If you ask whether theocracy/ecclesiastical rule is possible, methinks it is nigh impossible, despite the proliferation of religion it certainly would gain support by the masses, although the chances of such events that would transpire to convince adherence to what a single religion espouses is unlikely. Discussions on religion or theocracy is not my forte nor do I care for it.

Religion has no place in contemporary government, and should be a private preference.
