One Worldwide Government

Just picture this if you will, a world with no war, a world where everyone is provided for, a world that is. . . perfect.

Hypothetically speaking, if every individual country acted as if it were a state rather than many states combined, and there was one central government (similar to the U.N.) than that would allow for one "Super-Country" if you will. Thus, eliminating the need for big scale wars and global hunger. Everybody everywhere could be provided for. Every child could have an education. Religions would still be separate but have different Churches, Synagogues, and Mosques etc. One last and very important point, the political view. I believe, should become one of both Democratic and Communistic views, a mix of both. Now I'm not saying at all that the world should be a dictatorship or that i support that kind of stuff, but that I simply believe having every individual on the same social level is a wonderful idea. It would eliminate poverty! Though while at the same time still keeping a more Democratic way of doing things. (voting, electing representatives etc.) And on one last note, the economy might be a mixed economy, leaning more towards command than free-market, while still having most characteristics of a mixed economy. In many ways i think that life could be less. . . chaotic.

Please, let me hear your thoughts on why or why not, this would work. Give me your opinions and feedback, also. Feel free to help "add-on" or improve if you wish. (and please remember, this is just, for me, an ideal world. You don't have to agree.)

    May 1 2011: I am all for a betterment and a one world order is definitely an urgency. Considering all the clamors and poverty it certainly is the solution however. I am certain that religions are whats keeping us from this. Not that religions essences are wrong but that people have an intolerable way of destroying that which they hardly understand.

    The Bahai Faith proposes this very idea of one world government and unity in diversity however met many challenges and impervious believers therefore a cause in vain. Then their is Sai Baba who aimed for unity in all religions and called to mankind's consciousness. Evidently we find these sagely prescribed visions and values are in vain.

    To bring the worlds people together, it will take that all drop their labels/beliefs/institutions that divided and charge their INTENT towards a common vision.

      "The Bahai Faith proposes..."

      isn't it a little ... self defeating?

        May 4 2011: It would seem so but you have to acknowledge the full sentence - "The Bahai Faith proposes this very idea of one world government and unity in diversity HOWEVER met many challenges"

        It was basically answering on the religions who tried and failed because of actual religious disunity.
