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?

    @ : To all
    Firstly, thank you to each of you for taking the time to put your opinions, suggestions, ideas, solution to this debates.

    For the persons I did not reply, it's not that your points wasn't good, I did want to see how many real debaters will actually answered, and by not having me replying to all gave to this debate, close to 70 "real" person with new ideas, refreshing points of views for all to read. Thanks for your understanding.

    We all agreed that the differences on our planet earth, have great importance in our lives, mind, spirit and heart...this is why this planet its so great : our differences make us grow, learn, teach, educate, understanding, curious etc., also, we do agree that at times, our differences, can bring the worst of humanity : wars, prejudice etc.

    Furthermore, we all agree that part of the solutions is : education, acceptance, respect, understanding, love and embracing the differences of GOD offers us "for those whom believe in GOD!

    Now, each country on this planet is in a way, the same : religion, race, language, colored etc., if we put it in the context of the debate, even, within ones country, there is war, violence etc, and they all are of the same nations, so why, there is so much prejudice and hate ? One can only imagine, IF planet earth was all of the same, it would be catastrophic.

    Unless, WE as individual decide to do the change within ourselves to : accept, respect, embrace, understand the other cultures, views, opinions etc., even if you don't agreed with it, the importance is to give the liberty of expression, creativity, to take roots and live.

    It doesn't matter if you are Jewish, Afro-American-African-Haitian, Asian, American...or any of the other, Nations, because : Courage, strenght, joy, peace, love, etc., these are universal language, that everyone communicate, without having to be of the same race, religion, color. Change is within us to do, to embrace each other differences.

    Thanks to all.
