Does anyone think that we can have an efficient, peaceful world?

I think it is possible for the population of the internet, which is over 38% of the population of planet Earth, to collectively design and demand a change in the manner that we are governed. We now have the ability to create a new system, by the people, for the people, worldwide.

    Jul 27 2013: David, yes!!

    Soon we'll have earthly conditions so beautiful that we will all be wondering "what took so long?"

    But do you think humans alone can do it?

        Jul 28 2013: I agree with you....no "we" can't.
        • Jul 29 2013: And that's where we diverge Mary, if "we" can't, then maybe "we" are unworthy and all that it implies. After all, just how many times does someone have to die?

        Jul 29 2013: No, it simply implies that we do not know how to do it ourselves.

        We need help.

        And we only die once Tify.......only once.

      Jul 29 2013: Hello Mary; Do I think that humans alone can do It? Yes I do. We we made the world of people the way it is with all it's flaws, so why should we not be able to fix it?. Collectively, we aren't anywhere as vulnerable to corruption as the individuals that we select to represent us. The general intelligence of the voters has to be wiser than any single individual.

        Jul 30 2013: Hello David; I don't know about that......from the looks of history, well, I just have not real faith in humans alone tackling this massive issue of peace.....more later.
