What IF planet earth was just : One color, one race, one nation, one religion, one language ?

Does all this diversity in races, colors, religions etc., bring human being to war, hatrated, anger, frustration etc. ? The differences that we all share on this beautiful planet, is it to our advantage ?

Would it not be easier and more pleasant to speak all, the same language, have the same culture, practice the same religion etc. ?

What is your take ? Would you rather live on A PLANET EARTH elsewhere, that it's all the same colors, same culture, same language, same religion etc...If not, why and what do you propose to make OUR planet earth, as much unified as possible within is differences?

  • May 30 2012: The world that you imagine is a utopian one. Everything in the world would be simple and easy, but it wouldn't be as divine and beautiful as now. What we need is to learn unity in diversity . With all these differences too we can live peacefully, the differences don't format the root problem here. It's our human ego and our attitude towards people, trying to shun them down when they're different from the crowd,this creates issues, not the differences. Differences are beautiful.
