    Does god, gods, or even non-theists want a one world order?

    Yes, but with the right people heading it. It's important we don't give the world to corrupt people or deceivers.

    I don't think so.

    Our world is such a flea's fart in the scheme of it all, anyways.

    There is division in the world, but whatever world order we do - it has to tolerate these differences we have with another.

    I doubt it. He created it the way He did and we have lots of cultures, peoples, languages and so on. It's good.

    If you study human rights, you can justify world government for similar reasons you justify human rights and government in general.

    We differ on who the right people are, but agree that is necessary.

    Doesn't history show that overly large man-made governments tend to break, resulting in the same division?

    World government would for example, prevent genocide of one country towards a minority it has. I believe this is necessary in this age.

    But if we are going to have it, we have to have democracies, and get rid of republic nature of countries that claim democracy and also get rid of dictatorships all around the world.

    So long as it's your preferred politically leaning government, not everyone agrees with you here. I for one would prefer a republic.

    Note my last paragraph which would solve all your objections

    I think world government might come about, but only after some serous threats to human life on this planet, when we inevitably see that we could only survive by all countries being involved in what might be necessary as to actions, and all be seen as having as much stake as anyone other country - which of course is true, since if life becomes so bad on this planet then it will affect all, not just the poor, those not having so much influence, but all. How such a government might work I'll leave to the future.

    If a label is required, I choose paradox.

    no one really knows where it comes from, or where it is going to, thus all who are born of god, love.


    love is a mystery, paradox, that is found not only in self but in other as self.

    ehyeh asher ehyeh


    god itself is love at heart
