Con

yes so there may be no hunger, no war , no border problem , etc etc
themohawkninja

Pro

Assuming that my opponent is the one for the concept of one government governing the world, and I am against, even though he selected con, and not pro, I will be asserting that one government ruling the world will not solve the problems that con asserts, and that it may lead to additional problems.

No hunger

There is no evidence that my opponent states, or cites to show that one government governing the world will in fact terminate the problem that is hunger. Not only has by opponent failed to provide evidence towards his side, the fact of the matter is, is that 870 million people in the world are estimated to be suffering from chronic undernourishment in 2010-2012 [1]. Due to the fact that these 870 million people are not concentrated in one country, it can therefore be shows that multiple types of government have failed to address the issue, and therefore shows that there is a very low chance that one single government running the world will in fact solve the issue.

No war

There is no evidence that my opponent states, or cites to show that one government governing the world will in fact terminate the problem that is war. Not only has my opponent failed to provide evidence towards his side, the fact of the matter is, is that wars have broken out inside countries, whether it be various civil wars, or revolutions [2][3][4][5][6][7]. It can therefore be shown that if civil wars and revolutions have happened throughout history in individual countries, than so can they happen in a one world government.

No border problem

There is no evidence that my opponent states, or cites to show that one government governing the world will in fact terminate the problem that is border problems. Not only has my opponent failed to provide evidence towards his side, the fact of the matter is, is that there are times throughout history that border problems have existed within countries. Most notably, referring back to the refutation of your assertion of no war, is that of the time prior to, and during the American Civil War, whereby in Ohio, an emancipated slave was prohibited from returning to the state in which he or she had been enslaved [8]. It can therefore be shown that if border problems have happened throughout history in individual countries, than so can they happen in a one world government.

You are asserting that there should be, but you are on the con side? So, is pro asserting that there should not be one government running the world?
