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?

  • Jun 29 2012: I think differences between individuals is the motivation that people keep learning and growing. I do not believe that we would like to discover other things if people share the same language and culture. It will only lead us into a dull world if we have the same religion, culture,etc.
    War and hatred are not happend because of the difference between individuals, but it comes from our fear, ambition, envy and selfishness.
    A pleasant conversation is created by understanding between each other.

      Jun 30 2012: I like your thoughts on the matter Lili !! A creative conversation by understanding each other is a great approach, furthermore, one should also accept the difference of ideas and opinions of the other person, so that creativity on both parties can come alive and nourish, one, from the other!
