Thread: One world government

  1. #1

    Default One world government

    With the speed of communication and travel enabling real time interaction between countries pretty much anywhere on the globe, I am curious to see how others feel about the possibility of establishing a world government that would have the power to create and enforce international laws. The initial goal of the government I envision would be to stabilize the dangerous military situation we have, with the ultimate goal of becoming the sole authority of military action anywhere in the world. Trade and humanitarian issues would be dealt with as determined by the member countries.

    Any thoughts on this?

    I thought of this theory mulitiple times, but why not upgrade the U.N.'s policies. We could give them a military force, made of the best and brightest of the allied countries.

    The UN already has military forces. And like the League of Nations before it, it's bogged down with the conflicting philosophies and goals of its member nations. As an example - you'll never get a resolution against Russia, the US, or China; all hold a permanent veto power on the Security Council that would pass such resolutions.

    Yes a great thing you loose all things important to you and give it to others that hate what it is to be American.
    Look at Germany they are strong because you must as a german buy german goods .
    So they get to tell Greece what to do .

    But dont worry it's all ready happening as we speak .
    Carbon tax is one thing they want .
    Now privatization of water is next.

    I don't see the possibility of a world government as being very close at all.

    It depends what kind of world government you have in mind. If I picture a World Parliament directly elected by the people of the world (you'd need electoral divisions of 7 million or so) I can't imagine them being able to form a government on any kind of meaningful program without some large part of the world were to be excluded from it. Pick any issue and the material interests and deeply held beliefs of any one part of the world are directly in conflict with another part. Very soon people will get sick of the conflict and not getting what they want/ having things they don't want forced upon them and then want to pull out and be independent. This is already true about many nations in the European Union, and parts of nations in Europe. It was only last month that 45% of people in Scotland voted to leave the United Kingdom, and the differences between Scotland and the rest of the UK are tiny compared to the differences between Scotland and Sudan and Singapore and Saudi Arabia and Senegal and Swaziland and Syria. Can you really imagine them living together for any length of time?

    Also I have doubts about a one world government as a solution to the military problems in the world... the trend of the last 40 years has been more and more conflict between state and non-state armed groups. Do you think Islamic State is going to recognise the World Government? They already think they ARE the One World Government.

    it's not bad enough that the filthy, scratch that, disease-ridden europeans sail over here in 1492 and claim everything in sight for spain, thus starting the subjugation of an entire continent of formally happy aboriginals.
    but waite, that's not enough.... now you want to float the idea of another layer of world domination/governmental conquest that will probably just shaft us as a people even worse, when we are just getting used to what we have now....

    well frack that noise!

    Great topic.

    The only realistic scenario that well develop in the next 100 - 200 years will be two world super powers. You will have your western state, USA, most of Europe, some of Africa and South America. The other will be China, Russia, rest of Asia and what is left of Africa with the Middle East. This will come about after a third world war when most polarised views of the 'perfect state' will see a line drawn through the middle of the world.

    The Asian and Middle East states will join because the communist and feudal systems will actually work very well together in respect of land division. Also the power China will have by this stage will make it hard for many surrounding areas to resist the protection they can offer. Imagine a billion Chinese people marching on America.

    The west will do its usual League of Nations, UN and whatever comes after but will be hard to sustain and eventually a union of sorts will have to exist. Probably the United States of the West or something similar. There will local elections for the different areas and one governing overseer in a similar vein to the how the European Union works.

    It will be two worlds in conflict through ideology, religion and views on rights, welfare for people etc.

    I do not mean to paint this as a negative, it will just get to a point where democracy is fallible as it relies to much on economy where as a lot of eastern states have proven that production and physical numbers garner great power. It is a choice between power and harmony that will divide the world and its peoples.

    well you would have to get everyone to get along with one another. just doing that would be a huge task in it self. all ready country's are braking up because of internal fighting. one world government with one world law I don't know if it will ever happen. maybe some thing similar to the UN may come out of the need for country's to work to closer together. but who know.

    As a member of the wealthy elite like everyone else here I am against it. That would mean wealth redistribution which would mean being forced into relative poverty.

    Read '1984' by Orwell. It is an interesting insight into a rather screwed-up world.

    I have to agree though that whilst it seems like a good idea, a central government would be impracticable simply due to the fact that H. sapiens is such a diverse and varied species. We have so many vastly differing social and religious habits for any major agreement on laws etc to occur anytime soon. Add to that the self-serving nature of many world governments and the increasing apathy of Western publics and you get an environment that is resistant to change, even for the better.

    The only thing I can see happening is the conglomeration of Europe into a 'United States' type-arrangement, but even this is unlikely as the different countries are so heterogeneous in their national identities. It is likely that until multinational corporations are taxed and regulated fairly that the situation in Africa will improve, and the only likely thing in Asia is that the instability will continue as China and India grow and Japan shrinks as its population ages. The US is driving itself broke trying to be the 'police' of the world, and in my opinion leaders of other Western states are complicit with its war-mongering by supporting or at least turning a blind eye to its operations, many of which would be condemned as 'state-sponsored terrorism' if ever carried out on home soil. My own PM, the Honourable arsehole John Key, is particularly bad in this regard. During his last six years in power, he has systematically undermined NZ citizen's rights, such as with the TPPA, GCSB spying on NZ citizens (illegal until a recently passed bill) and with some seriously dodgy deals with Skycity, a casino company. There are more, read 'dirty politics'.
