I am another one against it, regional, cultural and and varying economic conditions would tear it apart as fast as you can stick it back together.

Even if there was a world government, Prefecture Japan would still fight Province Russia, County America would still invade District Iraq. The possibility of a World War would be just as likely, except that you'd put a "Civil" between "World" and "War".

The problem, by and large, lies "within" us and not so much "around" us. We defy the laws of nature and therefore we deny ourselves a form of government that works for all. JMHO.

Negative. I can't even get along with the various geographical areas of my own State, so I doubt that the wants and needs of some fisherman in Caspiar is going to be high on my political agenda.

One world government? INSANE!
There are too many different views of what government
should be & how it is carried out.
The very idea sends shivers down my spine in horror and
ignites my fuse for rebellion.

Agreed, wholeheartedly. I think N. Cali should secede and join Oregon, Wash. and Idaho to form a new state. We'll then evict Portland and Seattle and send them to S.Cali. San Fran will be put on probation.

This idea is open to corruption, unless proper rules and regulations to stop the people in power taking complete control of the worlds wealth and resources.

I think the reverse. We need MORE separate governments.
Break up the large nations into smaller, more representative little nations.

If a tiny nation like Czechoslovakia finds itself better off split up, maybe more nations should do that.

Haven't you seen how your freedom is diminished by the action of more powerful countries? Really? Or corporations?
Still, I can do my thing in my own nation without them caring of what I do.
