In today's world of instability, degradation, recession, instability, fears of war... would it be better for a superpower to lead the way.... Give reasons why.. You can go for or against the topic.. All arguments appreciated for or against the topic.. please instead of taking this as a challenge, give your views about it.. Its more like an open topic.. no challenge:)

I think what you are describing is like a world dictator(and even if your talking about a group of people, there is allways a dominent factor or person in the group, wich none of the rest will contradict).

Definition from the "Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary"-
dictator-a person granted absolute emergency power ;

now, lets look at a little history, take hitler for instance, he tried to be a world dictator, and look were that lead the world.
cant figur it out? it lead to the secont world war!
having a dictator lead to romes demise too, look that up XP
so basicaly your wanting a ww3? are you scuisidal?
there are so many resons why a dictator no less a world dictator would be bad.
heres a coupl key resons-
1.its been proven in the past not to work and you know what they say "those who dont know there own history are doomed to repeat it."

2. Its the kind of system thats justifyed mass killings such as the holocaust.

3. It allows for abuse of power, a tyrany if you will. if you give any one person( or even a colection of individuals too much power, it will be abused.

4. There would be the problem of geting countrys to comply, in other words, what makes you so sure that every country in the world will just spontaiously deside to go in head first with this radicalistic idea.

5. Also, a sudden change in the standings of power to one goverment would send a sort of shockwave through the economy and in the worlds economys as they stant right now, i dont think that the would beable to stand such a tramendous shock, and it would all collapse, caos would break out, sort of a wor would break out as a result, because were there is caos there is no peace, mayby an internal war is a better way to put it, as a resul of fear more power would be granted to the given supper power witch would eventualy lead to them naming an allpowerfull dictator and this is were anothere famous saying might come in to play-"total power corupts all" so basicaly what you would end with is a world with one country with one country with a corupt goverment, and an internal war going on, it would not be pretty.

so thats why any1 reading this should vote con because im sure the destruction of all peace and even the world in case of the internal war going nuklear is not what the average joe wants, i meen that may be what my oponent whants but you can not let his resolution prevail so vote con!
