• It is possible

    Why so many people have a problem imagining a governing system that is in charge of the entire planet is because they are trying to imagine a new government based upon the existing structure of the old one. For example, in the United States, we have not a democracy but a democratic republic. We don't make decisions for ourselves; rather, we vote for people to make decisions for us. This was an effective system when the United States was first conceived. The population was so dispersed, and communication so difficult, that the most effective form of government was one that localized power to a select few. Fast forward to today. We live in a world that becomes more and more connected every day. Communication is almost instantanious, and everyone can (with access the proper resources) be "plugged in." Why don't we create a new form of government? One that the citizens vote for representatives, but is also fully transparent. The citizens would have the opportunity to go online to a central "hub" and vote on issues directly. They would have the ability to navigate through local and global issues, and would be able to overturn any political action taken by the representatives by a majority vote. This would help to prevent the corruption that can run so rampant through the systems we currently have.

    A global government is possible; and if we want to progress as a species, it is necessary.

  • It can work

    There are 196 countries in the world. That means a parliament/senate if you wish with 196 members. A lot of minds and ideas to make the world a better place. All that remains is to get rid of greed and selfishness. Banks, big oil and pharma companies need to be put in thier place.

  • Absolutely, this will work...

    Imagine a world where you, your kids and even pets are chipped with a biochip. Everyone knows where and what everyone is doing. The only people who oppose a one world government in which everyone is connected to via chip, would be murders and child molesters. Who cares if everyone knows where is everyone is at all times? The future is bright and satisfying

  • I want humanity to explore the stars.

    We will never become a space faring race without world unity. No war, less poverty, less capitalism mindsets, more humanity centered thinking. This is the future, if you impede it you are harming progress and in effect, preventing end of starvation, racial hate, gender bias, and war. Look to the future, one world government is Utopia, cant you see?

  • United we are strong, divided weak

    It's like a basketball team, playing as a team and passing the ball is way more powerful than a team full of people trying to play one on one. Ball movement is the key to success. Just imagine 5 Kobe Byants fighting to shoot the ball. That's not a pretty sight.

  • One world government.

    In the beginning God created one man & a woman (Adam & Eve) & He said to them "multiply". We are children of Adam and Eve. One father one mother so we should live in unity as one people, one government, one world. Irrespective of diverse language, we are one.

  • Humans achieve great things together

    Imagine this, A unified world with no language boundaries, universal health care, and yet still small enough that elected representatives actually can dictate what happens for their people. This is what we can achieve through a one world government. No more of "races" to discover the same thing on two opposite sides of the planet, but now we work as 1 unified union to forward humankind.

  • Our survival as a species relies on global cooperation

    By the year 2050, this planet will have an estimated 9 billion people. This will result in a strain on ecosystems across the planet. Resources will begin to diminish, resulting in global conflicts for the last bits of remaining resources, and nations that have resources staking their claims to them. Nations across the world will be FIGHTING FOR SURVIVAL! But with a global government, the planets population can share its resources as one. This can allow for more spending in medicine and alternative fuel/energy research, thus AVOIDING A GLOBAL RESOURCE WAR.

  • If only everyone thought of themselves as world citizens first.

    The world is only getting smaller and smaller everyday with our ability to communicate at lightning speed across the world and more and more people everyday are learning English in order to do business. It just makes sense that we would someday have a world government. Everyone is becoming more aware that they are not the only ones living on this planet and that resources need to be shared so that everyone might have a good life. Greed is a big barrier that needs to be overcome in order to get to that state. As it is now some countries have a lot and some have not nearly enough. If we had a world government we could insure that everyone everywhere has the same chance at a good and peaceful life. That is if this world government allows all countries to be represented as equals. I can't very well imagine it working if there was only one world ruler. Then there would be too much chance of corruption. Instead if a squabble were to arise between nations then the world government would act as a sort of world court in order to determine a course of action with war only being used as the very last resort. I guess I'm imagining something like the UN but with more weight and power behind it.

  • Why cant we

    Should we? Yes. Would it be feasible? Maybe not. In a perfect world this would be great, we could unite and solve problems instead of squabbling over petty differences. Could we find leaders that would be able to overcome biases? Most likely no. Although we could greatly benefit from a unification of people there would be a backlash among people that cannot understand the benefit, and people that are too entrenched in hatred for other cultures. While this would be amazing for advancement of society, and the human race; there would be no way that people from different cultures could accept leaders that do not come from their own background. This is a great concept, but it is like communism, theoretically it would create a world where everyone would be better off, it would end in strife, and scuffling between ignorant people

  • Government Of the People, By the People, and For the People

    Our rights (life, liberty or freedom, and the pursuit of happiness) are given to us by our Creator. Government is in place to ENSURE WE MAINTAIN OUR FREEDOMS. Do you remember the Declaration of Independence from a Tyrannical Government? Do you remember that men and women have fought and died to protect our freedom in America. We have so many people forgotten the purity and rich heritage we have come from?

  • Human nature says no

    It sounds wonderful to "imagine all the people" living together in harmonious bliss, but when has that happened? The United Nations, with its toothless Security Council certainly doesn't bode well for a one world solution. The reason centrally run economies always fail is because economic decisions are made by billions of people every day. Those decisions are what determines supply and demand in a reasonably free market. No person, persons, or army of persons can determine what those decisions will be, nor can they determine what price levels will sustain economic activity, even in a single country. So, with hundreds of countries, different ethnicities, religious beliefs, social customs, etc., what possible forum could express all of those different needs and desires. The closer any government is to the people it governs, the more accountable it will be held. This pipe dream is held by people who think Roman civilization was the epitome of human development. People who don't bother to know history. People who falsely assume that we need overlords. They spew diversity out of one side of their mouth, and conformity out of the other. What's most pathetic, is that these are the supposedly "cool" people. Lemmings.

  • It is wrong on so many levels

    NWO = Slavery, no independent countries, no race, no culture, police state, no freedom, genetically modified food, social unrest etc, etc. What sane human being wants all of that? Only greedy, evil, Zionist freaks/bankers/corporations who want to take over our planet want that, because they don't have enough already... All people have to do is stop going to wars that have nothing to do with them; we are all being played off one another - there are no terrorists, only evil governments who want us to do their dirty work and make a hell of a lot of money in the process. There also needs to be a huge world wide strike against low wages - peaceful yet probably the most powerful kind of protest, if everyone sticks together. Without us, they are nothing.

  • this is what the bible warned us about.

    For those of you who don't believe in god and want a one world government, is only fulfilling his prophesy. You don't believe in him, but are starting to do everything that he has said will happen in the future. Its only a matter of time before you realize the truth.

  • No, we should not have one world government.

    There should not be one world government because the international population as a whole is too complex in needs and views to reasonably be governed by one group. Either one faction would take control and impose their values and needs on the rest of the population or force acculturation of the rest of the world population on some level. Furthermore, the economic disparities between countries would be destructive to developed countries. The current system is sufficient in which there are numerous countries and a central forum (the UN) to monitor globally significant events.

  • it mostly depends on who you are

    I am not very powerful so I would like a world with many governments. A world government to me is good to the rich and powerful, this is the same with monopoly's and the depression with a couple being rich and everyone having nothing but a little money. In a world government every man has less powerful since every vote will have a different idea. Plus many people in this world are very strange and want to kill all christens(Muslims) and they would vote for a leader who wants to kill all christens and if we just say that they cant vote than the government will tell everyone not to vote once they figure out that they can rule for ever they will become dictators of this world

  • no we should not have one world government

    Things need to stay the way they are. One world government would not work well at all. There are just too many people and too many issues for one government to handle, even if there was a select few elected from each nation. There would just be no way to be able to make that many laws and keep them enforced. Things need to stay just about the same as they are now just with a few changes. The United Nations need to start firing out the treaties and make everybody happy. The worlds nations need to be more independent also. This whole i need your oil, you have cheep labor, i will kill you if you don't trade from me thing is just not going to fly. Nations should only buy/sell/trade other nations if absolutely necessary. It would be like helping out a good friend, but only help a nation if they are willing to help themselves. Things are not perfect right now but it wouldn't take much to make it so much better.

  • Nothing Would Ever Get Accomplished

    I tend to lean towards the idea that every culture should have a country. This minimizes internal quarrels. This is one of the problems facing the US. We have become a melting pot and nothing can ever get accomplsihed because each group of people has their own agendy. The same principle applies to the "world government". It is the US on a bigger scale.

    Economic problems: Each country is in a unique economic situation that needs its own special policies. A world government, even if it eliminated the idea of a "country", would prevent cultures per se from applying their own economic prognosis and policies.

    Social problems: Each culture is as varied as the universe; each group has a different agendy, and no one group can account for a majority; the best you could hope for would be a plurality, and that would just result in the majority of people being angry.

    Power problems: A world government leaves open the possibility of a global takeover. Whereas today, a dictator would have to conquer 200+ countries to take over the world, a single coup would change the balance of power across the entire world, which is very dangerous.

    Overall, a world government is not a good idea because nothing would be accomplished, and the power of the world would be in terrible danger from evil people with the right mind.

  • Big Government Fail

    The government closest to the people truly rules best - Thomas Jefferson
    Even in the supposedly great Republican Democracy of the United States, government inefficiency is staggering, taxes are overbearing, and unity is unknown. Why would anyone want to accentuate the problem and grow the jurisdiction and size of government?

  • First Things First

    It can not work. To prove this, go to a stranger on the other side of town, and ask them to come to your house and tell you what is allowed in, around, and people allowed to reside there. And only their view is allowed you do not get a vote. I guarantee you quickly see that a world government can never exist peacefully. Rebellion would not be tolerated. Man is selfish, greedy, and spiteful. I will not conform to another man's view of how I get to live on this earth.
