    Thanks for your email.
    I’m not a political person but I prefer to express my idea about this.
    I think It’s not a logical idea because in such circumstances,only some countries gain the world’s total power and control and wealth, and the others become the colony of those.

  2. Nivan Gomes says:

    Imagine
    John Lennon

    Imagine there’s no heaven
    It’s easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today
    Imagine there’s no countries
    It isn’t hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace
    You may say
    I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope some day
    You’ll join us
    And the world will be as one
    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world
    You may say,
    I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope some day
    You’ll join us
    And the world will live as one

    This is what I think about the matter.

    One world government is bad idea. Is that means all country take capitalism? The idea is useful for being economy more simple, but patterns of economy is not only one way. That’s depends on geographic factor.
    The government is more powerful than private companies. It is better to think about politics and economy separately. Is it so difficult? If politicians don’t hope to get more power and think more simple and think for people, so much money or weapon is not necessary, isn’t it?

    • Mark White says:

      Most people do not know what capitalism really is. When they say “Capitalism is good”, they really only mean “money is good” because before they were poor but now they have some money and now they are happy that they have some money.

      Many people think “capitalism” means “freedom” or “opportunity” but really it means “the chance to give up everything for money and become a part of a system where everything is quantified and everything is for sale and nobody has any respect for anything except money and power”. The problem is that once you start, where do you stop?

      It is important to control the primitive urge to control others or eat too much or take too much or destroy things for pleasure or out of ignorance.

      Capitalism glorifies this urge. Anything that makes money is OK in a capitalist system.

      Capitalism as a practical system (as opposed to as a philosophy) is a system where people make money out of money (investment, finance etc) instead of making money out of work. It is the system that the rich families use to control the People on Earth. They have done this for a long time. They work together in secret meetings that are not reported .. like the Bilderberger group! Do you know about them? Check it out on youtube!

      If you study spending power, private corporations have more spending power than governments. Large companies are individually larger than governments if you measure their expenditure.

      So who really has the power? Who really pulls the strings? what do you think?

      CEOs and heads of governments and government ministers are members of an elite class who work for one company then a government body which regulates that company or work for the government then get a job in the company that they used to regulate, or in another company owned by “in house contacts” (rich friends who are shareholders in the same groups.)These rich cliques are totally corrupt and they control governments.

      These rich people have all the money (they print the money because they own the central banks and are never audited) and own all the property. The wealth is more centralized than it ever has been before!!

      Is it possible to start a popular democratic movement on the internet to stop these crimes against humanity by these wealthy corrupt organizations?

      The first step is to end bank control of the economic and political system!

        hi dear
        thank yu for your nice comment
        i agree also with you
        but unfortunatly when we have some thing we appriciat it less

  4. Cleiton says:

    One world government is GOOD idea when you want to set up a ant Christ.

    • Mark White says:

      Of course you are being ironic!.

      You don’t really want an anti-christ to control our planet!

      If we have one central system of control and a vile pernicious commercial interest takes over that system of control then we are in big trouble economically, politically and spiritually. I think that is the problem.

      The central banks control the governments and politicians through the financial system. The central banks are private banks or private companies which control the government. through legal contracts and business agreements. They are owned and controlled by the rich families which own the armaments industry, the oil industry, the pharmaceutical industry, the media and others. We are in big trouble. We have to stop them!

      They have secret meetings where they make plans for us but they do not consult us. We do not really live in a democracy!

  5. file says:

    the idea is fantastic, but I have a cuestión: where we goin to find a Human goberment hwo will be interest in others and not only in him? Human history show that it is imposible. why it is so? look in your Bible in jeremy 10:23.

    then where we goin to find the answer? Mathew 6:10

  6. Ali Al-Duais says:

    I don’t agree because having one company with unlimited power around the world is going to entitle a few people to control the distiny of millions of people worldwide without having any other power that can encounter them .

  7. asmaa says:

    thanks sir it s a good idea i agree with you

  8. seyyed ali reza bakhshayesh says:

  12. otar says:

    I think the world will be peace whenever the rules that government applies
    is the rule from the creator of the universe( human,environment…)if not
    the world will be face big trouble, war will be everywhere cause the strong one will
    colonize the weak one….

  13. abdinasir hassan says:

    I believe that private companies are stronger then governments interns great deal of money

  14. Mark White says:

    A secret group of super rich people is working behind the scenes to control the world and they own most of the big companies and they control governments and companies and set policies and agendas through meetings like the Bilderberger Group meetings.

    They created the European Union. They control the money. They are a private organization and they control all the governments in the world from behind the scenes through money and legal contracts.

    The question is, are they good guys or are they just trying to increase their monetary wealth? Do they care about the planet and all the people who live on it?

    I think they will try to kill half of us in a big war. They will sell weapons and supplies to both sides in the war and they will make huge profits. Then the survivors will get reconstruction contracts which will also make profit for the secret government of wealthy families behind the financial system.

    I think we are in big trouble. We human beings are in big trouble. We have to find a way to stop these bad guys!

  15. Mark White says:

    We have to end private control of the money system! That will do it. Then other things will follow.

  16. Adelina says:

    Ithink It will be a good idea but there are people can´t accept it beause they are sick of power they have the idea to control the world and have their own rules and they haven´t learnt that we must live peaceful.

    • Mark White says:

      It would be a good idea.

      They are power-hungry.

      They have become sick from power and corruption.

      We must live peacefully.
      We must live ion peace.

      We must learn to live in peace.

      A peaceful life is our right!

  17. Domingo Meza says:

    The only idea sounds like something crazy. The humans by nature are too much complex, in consequence, the society is a product of that complexity. One World Government is impossible today, because the societies have improved their knowledge about everything respecting the former societies from other centuries. Besides that, One World Government isn’t convenient because we have a lot of different cultures, different histories, different ways of thought. It is a good topic for a general reflexion but it’s unreal.

  18. ABHISHEK says:

    I think this is crazy thought like. Its practically not possible . If ti possible also its very difficult to implement and control. In my view in the present senario THE DIVIDE AND RULE olicy is the best one.

  19. khaled says:

    I think it’s good idea to end the problems in all the world like poor and unemployment and also war
    and the most important help the country that need to money to medicine to every thing..

  22. Lenard Valko says:

    There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to deliver up. I offer the thoughts above as basic inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you deliver up where crucial thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impression of just a moment?s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

  23. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you possibly can fix for those who werent too busy on the lookout for attention.

  24. It?s laborious to seek out knowledgeable individuals on this matter, but you sound like you already know what you?re talking about! Thanks
