misspent youth, to be sure.

anyway, I still don't want or need One World government.  There are only two ways to do that:  Let the US take over the world or Let the World take over the US.  The amount of taxes it costs to grow the empire to that extent is too much of a burden.  In fact, I think we have already bitten off as much as we can chew, proverbially speaking.  And the other alternative seems just as offensive.  Do you really want some Sudanese slave-trading overlord making your laws?  Or how about Supreme Court Chief Justice Pol Pot?  No thanks.

Against

Our different tribes, demographics, societies, etc. are too important to abandon just for some monolithic government. Look how remote the EU is from Europeans, and thats just 450 Million people, not 6 Billion. The bureaucracy would be mind boggling.

following the US system? No way. Following any system? No, thanks.

3 years ago, i'd've been a massive yes. Not anymore.

You've wised up.  I guess all that time you spent picking up rubbish at school really did teach you something. Tongue

So basically the world gets taken over by one single government operating a federalist democratic society. All rights and freedoms that exist in the US Constitution exist in this Earth Constitution.

Wow, Phillip's wrong about what he said.  Supersoulty is waaaaaay smarter than you.  Although it's not saying much.

While I believe in international cooperation (United Nations, Interpol), I strongly believe that we should have many separate and autonomous nations.

I think having one government for the entire world is a bad idea.  What happens if that government screws up and we end up with hyperinflation, the collapse of the monetary system, war, widespread corruption, genocide, persecution, etc.?  When there are many different nations, people have the option of moving to another nation in the event that their livelihood or survival is doomed in their home nation.  If the whole world is under one nation, then there is no such option.

Another advantage of having many different nations is that different ideas can be tried.  When one nation is particularly successful on an issue and another is a miserable failure, this provides valuable guidance to the rest of the world.  Just look at capitalism vs. Communism.

I'd support a world government if I was the supreme ruler.  Imagine for a moment me as Supreme Ruler over the world.  Poverty would be eliminated in 20 years.  Every person on this planet will be well armed and well supplied with ammunition.  Prosperity for all.  Crime will be almost nonexistant.  Daily public executions on the State Broadcasting Network (it will also be the only programming aired by the government).

Ah, that would be a wonderful wonderful world.

Please.  I have no intention of murdering anyone or nationalizing any industries.  There will be virtually no government.  The government will be there to provide planetary defense, defend YOUR rights to keep and bear arms and to own property and keep the fruits of YOUR OWN labor, and to enforce contracts.  Your education is clearly lacking in a serious manner.  Consider getting one.

How exactly do you plan on eliminating poverty?

Evening Newscast of the SBN:

*military-like tune plays*
Female announcer: Good evening, comrades.
Male announcer: Good evening. We go now to Dakar, Senegal, where a live execution is about to take place on Goree Island.
*screen changes to a firing squad*

On-the-scene reporter: So ladies, and gentlemen, here you have two men and one woman who are due to be executed by firing squad for being bisexual, which our lord Richius deems to be evil liberal. We are warning you about the insiduousness of liberals.
Commander: Squaaaddddd!!!
*squad aims at prisoners*
AAAIIIIMMMM!!!
FIRE!!
*banging in the distance*
*doctor pronounces prisoners dead, etc*
*camera returns to studio*
Male: Earlier today in Toronto our lord Richius stressed the importance of stamping out the evils of liberalism in the world and how our world will prosper:
*large organized crowd all simultaneously holding up portraits of Richius*

Richius: We need to stamp out liberalism in the world. It is evil. It is terrible. I will defend the world against little green men in outer space.

Female: Our lord Richius also wrote about the evils of liberals today in the Singapore Straits Times. Here is what he had to say:

Quote
Liberals Suck

-by Richius

Liberals really f'in suck. Everything that has gone bad with me is the result of liberal interference in my life. Why if it wasn't for those GD liberals I may actually want to 'hit it' with a woman one time, yeah, damn liberals.

Female: The words of our dear leader should be praised as an example of how our humble earthling should live by.

Male: In the steel mills of the world our great corporate leaders have lead our world to record steel production. This was made possible under the discipline and corporate freedom of our lord Richius. The workers of all steel mills, from Pittsburgh to Cleveland, from Shenyang to Anshan, and from Liverpool to Potsdam, are united to bring more wealth to our corporate masters.

Female: And that concludes our nightly newscast, and thank our lord for our new-found happiness.
