The idea I'm proposing is a unified global community; The people we've globally accepted as "The smartest" all proposed it, why not us.

It's generally accepted that we are a divided people, but that's a destructive way to shape our future. In my opinion, a globally unified peoples would be able to conquer the most difficult tasks.

One currency, a balanced economy, a global scientific front, ever moving outwards and thinking ahead to the future of our species. If we were to move into space it would be as a whole people, all endeavoring to push the human race into the stars, to explore what we never have, and find the best for our people. Care for everyone, equally. No more losing a loved one to a curable ailment because you simply can't afford a treatment. No war. That explains itself.

As a global community all of these things are reachable. I implore all of you to expand and reason about this. Thank-you for reading.

  • Jun 14 2012: At first your idea looks like a really good one. But what about that thing that made us what we are today. COMPETITION.
    Your talking about a world with no competition. And that leads to no innovation, no scientific discoveries.Is that a world were you want to live?
    Secondly, a single government is highly corruptible (dictatorship), and again it lacks competition:
    - think about Soviet Union, what lead it to the end was not the communist way of thinking, it was because it was alone, for the good or bad decisions, there was no competition. And it ended when it started competing with the US.
    - the raise of the west during Industrial Revolution was due to the competing environment of European countries.
