Luis Lopez Posted about 2 years ago The World would be a better place with one government. Even in a vacuum, government of seven billion people by a single entity would be very difficult. All that power in just a few hands could work beautifully in capable hands, but we all know even democracy doesn't always elect even competent officials, and there's always the possibility of corruption. if officials aren't elected, well, then you're toeing a fine line with despotism. Not in a vacuum, if you put a global government right now in the real world, you'd have to add clashes between nationalities, cultural identities, religions, races, ideologies, sports rivalries... This system might not be perfect, but I'd rather have a community of nations to police each other, than one massive government that could fall on wrong hands.
