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 15 2012: Would we really? Or would there be a power struggle between our genders?
      • Mar 15 2012: Sarah, How would you describe the relationship between the genders as of now? I believe that authentic equality, acknowledged and implemented, would cause all males and females to enjoy each other and life itself as well as result in a whole stream of other positive payoffs, e.g., good health, peace on our Earth, prosperity, self-actualization, truth, love, joy.
      • Mar 18 2012: Oh, Sarah. I am hoping you will describe the current relationship between the genders.

          Mar 18 2012: Of course Rhona. I am wandering to what extent of "equal" both genders will become as in this current world, some cultures treat women unfairly as I have myself experienced and other cultures are striving to assist women in making their mark on the world.
      • Mar 19 2012: Sarah, please tell me where women have participated as equals in designing any major societal system, e.g., political, religious, economic, medical, legal, academic.
