Imagine if all Earths' continents were connected and we were all one nation, what would life be like and what kind of world would this be?

If somehow all the islands, countries, continents floated along the oceans and joined together, would this cure our "differences"?

Would this put an end to war, racism, hate, greed, power struggles etc? And would everyone stop to help each other rather than live only to help themselves?

After all, we share the same Earth so we are all connected one way or another. This world is our community. It is important to look out for one another, is it not?

  • Mar 14 2012: This is a really imaginative and interesting question. Unfortunately, I don't think such a geographical arrangement would change us. I think the tendency for factions to rule and force those under them to fight a perceived 'enemy' would still shape our world.

    In fact after the initial excitement was over I think we would look around and see the same greedy people in charge. It is the people that need to come together.
