"There are always regional issues and no matter what political or religious lines can be blurred those regional matters will remain and it seems the height of arrogance to say that a council in brussels will deal with and make all decisions concerning an issue like the tensions between the Turks and the Kurds"
Its simply a matter of scale, just as you have local administration in countries, so too you would have local administration in our super state, the only difference is that instead of the buck ending in say Madrid, London or Paris, it ends in Brussels.
"I see absolutely no benefits from a central govt. commitee that the UN wishes to become. The polotics won't change, and the economics won't change, in fact they will be hindered greatly by new regulations and probably approvals needed for every single major biz transaction decided in the councils - a big honkn slothy mess"
Why are countries better than a lot of smaller warring regions?
"The only benefit would be to those anti-americans out there who wish to see american power and influence eroded to nothing"
So basically you don't like idea of Americans not being more influential than other people.
"Most likely a UN central govt. would be SOCIALIST and impose high taxes and a redistibution of wealth and publication of formerly privately owned biz's"
It would no doubt have some "socialist" aspects, you think everything "socialist" is bad?
"That's why european countries are so stagnant and in poor shape as they are up to their eyeballz in social welfare programs"
.... There is just so much wrong with what you say, its really hard to know where to start.
The 1st world European countries are not "stagnant and in poor shape", they are less powerfull, less rich, no doubt less efficent than the US, but who cares? Why prioritise those things over people?
"Here's another shocker, ppl are selfish and they work for their own benefit and not for the cuase and wellbeing of the STATE, REPUBLIC, or UN..."
Right..... which is why communism doesn't work, and the relevence is........?
"You wanna see a civil war... just have this UN govt. tell us americans that our constitution is now invalid and the first thing the UN does is eliminate the "right to bear arms". You'll see some blood then"
Which is why it would not work in todays world, because yea lots of people would object for lots of stupid reasons like you mention, but anyway I think the process will occur gradually over a large time frame not as a sudden change.
We may be seeing the beginnings in the EU but that could well fall through, never the less given enough time and assuming we dont destroy ourselves in the mean time, i think it will happen, and that it will be a great thing.
