Will it ever be possible to remove country borders and become citizens of earth? Why or why not?

Pretty straightforward. There are no nations or nationalities....we are all humans. Here to serve the greater good.

Closing Statement from Joshua Bowles

Well I can see that some folks are unable to envision a positive future without borders. To me it does not make much sense. Humans spending their whole lives being boxed up. Then the Pat guy was talking about these tyrannical leaders from history. Can you not see that this is just one person? How is it possible that the human race can be so naive to let one person enslave millions? That kind of thinking will never get any real progress in this world. Thanks for all of the comments. May the force be with you ;)

  • May 16 2013: I repeat: SEEK POSITIVE, FIND POSITIVE.
  • May 15 2013: Yes. Yes. Yes. Let's dissolve those artificial borders and acknowledge we are citizens of earth. The well being of all of us will then rise. Thanks for posting this, Josh.

    As a family, as a nation we always find ourselves together in face of out side attack.

    • May 16 2013: You seem to be persistently negative. Oh, well. Your choice. Stop blaming neutral reality. You are making the choices about what you are focusing on.

        May 16 2013: In history where ever there was a centralized government the individual gets crushed.

        Mao, Pol Pot, Stalin, etc. got rid of anyone who did not want to get with the program.

        This also happens in less severe ways but none the less crush the individual.

        The individual is the source of all that is good

        The centralized collective is what allows complacency at the expense of the individual.
  • May 15 2013: It's a noble idea, but the administrative side of it would be a huge nightmare. There are so many different cultures, religions, education levels, and ideologies on this earth that giving them all an equal voice in one huge government would be horrifically hard. There's also a lot of prejudices between nationalities that would be very hard to overcome. When you force different groups that historically hate each other into one nation, you get Rwanda. I don't think anybody wants to repeat that.
