    Ontopic: I am not a professor or have a phd in politics. So I may come across as misinformed. However, I'll state my opinion based on the limited knowledge I've had in the subject.

    It's most likely inevitable through the course of history that mankind will go into some form of world government. Old rivals have become allies to oppose greater foreign influences. Eventually these alliances will overcome the globe and it will not be a choice to be against the massive political alliance (see the middle east). Eventually humanity will realize how more efficient it is to spend resources on butter instead of iron and will gladly join the alliance (if they're not radicals who believe in anything opposing humanism).

    Most people seem opposed to the concept because of paranoia of a draconian system. No doubt that it's possible. But predicting specifics beyond what we have not already invented is kind of odd. There's a reason people say whatever happens after this technological singularity(if it will occur) is unpredictable.



    Edit: Google globalization economic growth correlation.

    Though it is a limited form of a world government.
    Yes, it is limited and also very selective on which wars it interferes in.

    There is only one way a few can contol many:
    1) The subjects submit themselves to a higher power

    How the subjects submit themselves to a "higher power" can vary depending on the few that want the control.

Indeed, no longer can ignorant educated voters make a difference in their local and sovereign governing bodies. What is good giving people freedom of their lives and liberties if they make bad choices? Surely the educated elite who wish to lead mankind into prosperity will know whats best for the rest of us? We have to protect people from themselves, our leaders know what's best.
    It's true that the micro politics ( personal politics) will need to be governed by macro politics. And maybe moral would not exist in the common man if the governing bodies never enforced it. But the governing bodies also divide and bias the mass', as well as support the status quot(rascism was only unnacceptable until people started standing up to "the man" whoever the fuck that is) But the fact that we are told we are free when in fact we are fettered to the common ignorant man is a lie. To live within all these unconcious people running our society (voting) will keep me bound by myself unless ron paul comes to canada

    If the idea of globalisation being true, it is deffinitly something to be worried about since clearly the world of tommorow is more important then the world of today, and that would make most people expandable in makign the world a better place. The lives would be worthless if you are thinking of potential future lives, and they would be turned into ssacrifice if need be. Not saying im worried, but the idea of absolutism is a very communist idea, and im living in a "democracy". Meh, ill just keep floating along
