    Maybe I'm missing something but why is unity a bad thing exactly? I've never had the anti-world unity schemiel explained fully so if there's any one who can give me the lowdown on why a united world is bad I'd like to hear the reasons. I only have my conjectures to go on.

    My mom went to one of those wild and crazy bible prophecy churches like Sarah Palin's for a while when I was kid. They were always worried about a possible united world as a sign of the end times - among countless other "signs". For a group of people so against divination and reading omens every week the pastor had "seen new signs of the end times". Which semantically is simply attempting to read omens like any other old druid. I thought that unity among varied groups of people was the point of world peace. Which is what, as a kid, I thought religion was supposed to be all about. The only thing I got out of going with my mom to that church a couple times was an interest in conspiracy theories and trying to find out why people believe the things they do!

    Don't tell me you haven't read Revelations. Yes, unity is the point of (way to?) world peace. But according to the New Testament, you can't have world peace until you have the rapture, and that doesn't happen until everything goes to crap.
    If I'm not mistaken, the world falling under rule of a single kingdom is a big part of Biblical prophecy - I think it's supposed to happen sometime around the time of the anti-Christ.

    But the anti-christ was already just about here 25 years ago when she was going to that church. They had movies and guest speakers... Don't tell me the anti-christ has to have dress rehearsals!

    But other than these kind of folks what is the reason people don't want world unity? I mean there's the John Birch Society (American Opinion Publishing) and the Anti-Trilateral Commission people and anti UN people. I've just never understood the angle/fears behind it, what is it they're afraid of? I know what they're against but why?

    It seems like the road to world unity could be a heck of a lot rougher than just having world unity, in which case I suppose one of the biggest problems could be a corrupt government.
    Then again, I suppose it all depends on how one defines "world unity"...

    On another note, Futurama is on if you're west coast...

    The way I see it having a united planet could go either on a path of failure or success. I think the reason why so many would see this in a bad light is that with a giant world democracy, the government may have too much power, and of course "take over the world". IMO I think we should get rid of capitalist, socialist, and communist goverments, and replace them with a much more humanist kind of government, where everyone truly has equal positions in their society. From there we can unite our segregated lands we can all solve our problems as one. With so many minds at use our race will advance til' we reach the stars.

    Look at the UN... a Democracy made up of Dictatorships. They vote the biggest human-rights abusers onto the human-rights commision for example.

    Not like the US is perfect, but we have Rights that are inalienable. Not Priveledges that are granted by Governments that can be revoked.

    No Central Authority telling me how to live no thank you. I personally think this strengthening of our own Federal Government coupled with the "anti-terrorism" laws could lead to a not-so free USA in the future.
