What the world would look like if the whole world had only one central government?

I love politics I thought if the world would unite the whole world would look beautiful but if we had only one governing system. What the world would look like?

    It really depends on the sort of government it takes on, dictatorship would lead to physical slavery, the present form of capitalism would lead to even more slavery to debt, communism in it's present form would be the same as dictatorship, monarchy would lead to class distinction not that capitalism doesn't to a certain degree & so on.

    Central government, no thankyou.

    Apr 4 2013: If the world has one government, it would still be the world. Some would be law-abiding, some would turn to crime or disobey the law, there would still be corruption and greed, there would still be one form of discontent or the other.

    Apr 4 2013: There would be many large pictures of George Seros.

    This is his dream ... have you read up on any supporters or those who wish for this. It is all about power and ego ... there is no plan for the "people" other than control.

    If one government existed then what about religion, cultures, local controls, etc ... they would have to go. Your very company Speechate would not exist as free speech as we know it would no longer exist. What would be the new world language? I cannot even envision the corruption that would evolve .... probally not much more abuse than current politicans exhibate.

    Read "Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley. Not all change is good. Different cultures and systems give us balance.

    As I read about your country of India each area is very distinct, many power struggles in politics, no unified language, many cultures, religions, etc ... what would happen if just your country was under one government party with total power. After reading about the politics in India I think there would be big trouble.

    I mean no disrespect to India ... just a example.

    I wish you well. Bob.

    Apr 4 2013: Dear Rhitik, I am not sure about a world with a central government, but can imagine a world without any geo-political boundaries. It will have a governance based on environmental ethics. It will also a be world of self sufficient villages (now planners are calling them cities, I am sure they will correct themselves) connected by freeways exchanging and prospering in unison.
    If you like you can check my crazy idea.

    Apr 6 2013: It would be easier to travel without borders. Presumably we would have one language, which would make life easier.

    Don't know if people can agree on the best system of governing, however.

    Apr 4 2013: Is there a system of governance you think everyone the world over would prefer? Are you thinking it would be mandatory for everyone everywhere to be under a particular system of governance? Would any local systems or any self-determination fit into the model?

    Would you describe what features of politics make you most enthusiastic and how you see those playing out in the government you envision?

    Apr 4 2013: There are examples existing today which illustrate the answer to your question. Take North Korea for example. Sadly, it is not easy to get first-hand information about daily life in such a system but most indications are that there is nationwide poverty, malnutrition, and suffering. Government is not the solution to our global problems. The problem lies in the human heart. Man's inhumanity to Man is not subject to governmental regulation in any form. Such things as peace, harmony, and concern for our fellow man come from spiritual rebirth.
  • Apr 4 2013: I am amazed at the answers to your question.
    They reveal an inability to think, or a choice not to think. Brainwashed so that they no longer can envision good, goodness, change and more than likely don't want change, even if it were for the benefit of all.
    You asked them to imagine. They cannot. They are dead. They take your world, a new one, and install all the shit, crap, evil and negativity from the one they now squirm around in. It's pathetic. And, they think they are thinking.
    I imagine your world without money for money is directly connected to almost 100% of all crime world-wide.
    The small percentage not directly connected, is indirectly connected. So virtually all crime is gone and so are the reasons for crime, i.e. greed, fear, the need to corrupt, to kill, invade, lie, cheat, steal, blackmail, embezzle, and so on.
    Next, all Human Needs are Human Rights and are provided free, by people (us), to people (us), because they are what we all work for already, but we cannot meet those needs because of money, i.e., corruption, greed, fear, etc., the basic features of a corrupt, unjust system. Apparently, they want to keep that system.
    Without crime, laws are not needed. Only a few. Less legislation. That means virtually no politicians or politics because they never solve problems anyway and are thus completely irrelevant, particularly in your (my imagined) new world. Morality can never and should never, be legislated. But, there will still be some crime, very little and a little law enforcement will suffice.
    Instead of using the term governing, I prefer to use management and right now, as things stand, everything is mismanaged by those in power, so they all, all of them, have to go.
    The resources of the earth are to be managed by the people of the earth and not owned or controlled by anyone, any corporation or any country, because they belong (if they belong) to everyone on earth and everyone has a right to their free share needed to live in health. That's a start

      Apr 6 2013: Random, what would you replace money with, the old system of exchanging goods? But how would this do away with crime, people who had fewer goods would still steal from those who had more.
      • Apr 6 2013: Human Needs have to become Human Rights.
        It is people who provide (do the work), create,, and so on, but the best
        thing I have looked into is the resource-based economy espoused by Jacque Fresco down
        in Florida.
        Consider that he has worked on re-engineering societies (particularly the U.S.) for over
        75 years. There is no one else, nor any other study or plans, done by anyone else who can
        approach the amount he has produced for doing such a thing.
        And we most definitely need to restructure our society and our management (governance).
        What mostly happens is that people scoff and dismiss him and his Venus Project out of hand without truly considering his ideas without prejudice, prejudice that comes in the form of already pre-conceived ideas that nothing can change and if it isn't perfect and doesn't answer every single question, then it is somehow no good. It is very narrow, short thinking. In fact, it isn't thinking as I said in my first post. It is just repetitive rhetoric by individuals who have been rendered artificially intelligent and say what they have been programmed to say. (which is nothing more than having been brainwashed for decades.)
        Short answer, when people's needs are met, they act and behave quite differently - no crime, because there are no reasons to commit crimes.
        What we see and what most keep saying we will always see, is a perversion of how humans are because so many are not getting their needs met and of course they will then respond in whatever way they deem necessary in order to survive.
        So would you. So would anyone.
        With the numbers of humans, we need a new system, not a new government.
        We need what will work, not demonizing and then debating (soberly and rationally), who should be killed in order to stem the false-flag fiction of overpopulation.
        A just system doesn't have corruption at any level nor reasons to become corrupt.
        Think on it for awhile until you can begin to envision what you couldn't before.
        It's your baggage in the way.

          Apr 6 2013: I'm a little doubtful, Random, because here in the U.S. we more or less meet everyone's needs, nobody is starving, nobody lacks housing who wants it, free clothes are available from different charities. Yet, despite meeting everyone's needs, we have quite a bit of crime, the last figure I heard was 3 million in jail or prison.

          By the way, on the other conversation, I'm sorry you've gone through serious health problems. I was saying to Derek that there are programs to help poor people pay for medicine, but I meant in the U.S., where he and I live. I'm surprised you had problems in Germany, I thought you had socialized medicine?

    Apr 4 2013: Hello Rhitik,
    When I was younger I used to fantasize about this form of no-boarders world. I pictured a utopia of peace, fun, cultural diversity and great food! If the leader(ship) of this single world government was benign than the world would surely be more equitable, organised and just...

    However, humanity being what it is, opposition groups would emerge as one group of people perceived they were becoming disadvantaged in some way. Before you know it, these groups would split into clan, class, racial, religious or ideology factions that would work to de-stabilise the status quo for their own advantage. In short, given the current level of human evolution, it would not be possible or desirable.

    I do believe we need a strong UN. In the next few decades the impact of climate change and environmental degradation will lead to the loss of significant areas of habitable land - either though sea inundation (pacific low lying islands + countries like Bangladesh) or the desertification / deforestation of vast tracks of land. Whole populations will be on the move and international governance will need to be strong to prevent wars and other disruption from taking hold.

    How do you think Indians will react when it has to absorb the population of Islamic Bangladesh into its territory?

    (The current population of Bangladesh is 163,609,665 source: http://www.geohive.com/earth/population1.aspx )

    Apr 4 2013: if we can get the idea of a governing system that is independent from corruption and does not discriminate against anyone, then perhaps it could be beautiful. The thing is though, that all things that are good are usually found on the longer harder routes. The harsh road to travel on can be the unraveling of people and thus form a revolt to do the hard work required to achieve this.

    The idea, i support, the reality, i fear is far from this.
  • Apr 4 2013: Who knows. Some would want Sharia. Some would want higher taxes. Some would want and get higher wages. Some wouldn't want but would get lower wages. some wouldn't want but would get higher taxes. Some would want and get a balanced diet. etc. etc. some would win and some would lose.
