"Mankind's desire for peace can be realized only by the creation of a world government." --Albert Einstein
What has this got to do with anything?
A lot, really.
If you think about it, given computers, technology, our ability to communicate with each other and the world, you have to realize that what we are headed for is a "world government", as Einstein spoke of all those years ago, just for different reasons.
I've been thinking of this for some time. It seems the movements and machinations in Europe this past year has proven it, too, what with the situation in Europe and their financial mess.
Germany has all the money, Greece, the debt. For Germany, specifically, to be strong-arming Greece, from without, to go on austerity budgets and slash spending, even if they--Germany--are the ones with the money, promising the helpful loans Greece needs, it seems an indication of what is happening along those lines in this new world.
Personally, I think an ultimate, "one-world government" would be a good thing. No, I think it would be a great thing. And the sooner it takes place, the better.
There will have to be all kinds of local structure in place and we'd have to communicate still further and--God forbid--talk to one another, through the nations and national government. In short, the world's people would have to open their minds. (That makes it seem virtually impossible, I must say).
But if we could see that we are, all of us, on this planet, in this together for and with all the natural resources and weather and everything, maybe, just maybe we'd all learn to share and maybe, just maybe then we'd never war again.
Hey, I can dream, can't I?
