XO left an awesome comment on yesterday's post. I over all agree with him, with the understanding that as a conspiracy theorist I wouldn't be in favor of any such uniting led by the evil secret societies. *shakes fist* Okay, now that's out of my system, let's give our full attention to what is possibly the best comment I've ever gotten on this blog:
I totally agree.
However, I think it is just a first step.
I would like to see it eventually expanded to Central America and even South America.
And Africa. And Europe. And Asia.
I know it sounds all SciFi-ish and Utopian, but we really need a Terran Union.
The old saying is that "no man is an island". That's true. But it is even truer that ALL of mankind IS an island on this planet. At least for now.
The sooner we realize that we are all in this together and we need each other to survive, the sooner we can get past the territorial, philosophical Neanderthal crap and move to the next stage of human and social evolution.
Shouldn't all of the planet's (and the solar system's) resources be pooled and shared to the greatest benefit of everyone?
Shouldn't the goal be that no human on the planet is left without the basic necessities of life or the means to achieve whatever they wish?
Shouldn't we all have an equal share in the success or failure of our species?
Beyond that, shouldn't all life, everywhere, have an equal stake in the success or failure of all other life?
How is this a point of contention for anybody? Seems like a forgone conclusion to me.
