A coworker recently told me I was wasting my time supporting Ron Paul and his antiglobalist campaign. He said a World Government was inevitable and Ron is about 40 years too late in trying to stop it. We had a pretty heated argument with him trying to convince me of the benefits of World Citizenship and that I was clinging to old ideas of nationalism. He said once people realize the benefits of an International Union they will accept and even embrace it. He claimed all world citizens be able to relocate wherever they wish without immigration hassles. Each and every world citizen will have all their health care and retirement expenses covered for life. People would have the opportunity to experience exotic cultures and be given equal consideration for job opportunies in their region of choice. Blah blah blah...
The World Government would consist of the weathiest participant nations at first, to include Western Europe, Australia, USA, Canada and Japan. This will eventually spread to include all countries. I told him it was a dumb idea and the ones who benefit are the Int'l bankers and multinational companies. Wages would decrease. The people would be insanely taxed and have little control if any over such a governing body. He said it would operate like the UN but better and more efficient. What a joke.
