Should the U.S.A. try and acquire Mexico? That sounds funny right. In this day and age, one country acquiring another seems like a funny and even crazy idea, but is it? Do you know most of our problems are do to imaginary lines, borders. Wars are fought over these lines, walls are being built because of these lines, poverty is in large part because of these lines and how someone is perceived is because of these imaginary lines. If you were to get rid of these imaginary lines, you would get rid of almost every problem we have, maybe even climate change, which is not because of these lines. It is my opinion that this is the next logical step in the evolution of our world, to become a one country (which would not even be the right word for it because without borders there would only be a world). Now, I am definitely not saying invasion, alright Turkey, I am saying coming to an agreement that would be advantageous to all parties involved. I’m thinking less early 17, 18, 19th century and more future globalization by mutual acquisition, like AOL and Time Warner, Dow and Dupont, and Heinz and Kraft. The thought of countries merging to become one sounds funny, maybe ridiculous, but I feel that it would solve almost every problem we have. I wrote a blog about discovering a new planet and then posed the question what would we do if it came to be. Would we put borders up and separate people or would we just inhabit the world as one people? A borderless world would no longer see endless wars or any wars (saving a crap load of money on building nuclear missiles), it would not see famine (hopefully) and it would not see racism (I mean, that would have to fade away with the older generation). I know what you’re thinking, how would we hold an Olympics without borders, while that does pose a dilemma, I’m sure we can figure it out. So here’s to taking over the world one small country at a time, lol, sure as heck doesn’t sound right but if done the right way, democratically, it would benefit everyone. While everyone balked at President Trump for wanting to get Greenland, I don’t know what his reasons for trying to acquire it were, the premise of becoming one world without borders is not that crazy. The election for whoever would become President of that World would be interesting, we wouldn’t have to worry about foreign interference anymore, so there’s that, look another problem solved. There would be no more foreign terrorism just domestic and there would be no need for money exchanges.
I watched the Daily Show last night and saw Sen. Rand Paul. He spoke with the host Trevor Noah and the topic was socialism vs. capitalism. Let me say that the Senator was my choice on the Repub side for nominee in 2016. His arguments though for capitalism and socialism aren’t far off from a moderate candidate. Socialism doesn’t work, he is right, but he is mistaking communism and authoritarian regimes for socialist republics, they are not. True socialism puts the power in societies hands and not an individuals hands, that’s individualism. The regimes the Senator spoke of were faux socialist republics or only socialist republics in name but not in practice. Socialism works like this. Everyone puts all their money in a pot and then it is redistributed equally among everyone. Then the government asks for money from the people and society as whole then decides to say it is or it isn’t a worthy cause or reason to give that money. The regimes that the Senator spoke of would take your money and then take their part without asking society and then redistribute what’s left as they, this individual, deemed fit. That’s a pyramid scheme disguised as a government. The problem with true socialism is, it lacks incentive. Why become a doctor if I can be a janitor and get paid the same. That being said, capitalism is better to a point. The problem with capitalism is that it’s a wider form of communism. The CEO’s now become heads of their own entity and they redistribute as they see fit. That’s why they move their companies to countries where labor is cheaper. They pay their workers but if they can pay them less, they would and do. This is where being a borderless world would actually be most useful, greed would be put in check because now we can force a living wage to everyone in the world, no matter where you move your business. Capitalism would be put in check and there would be no socialism. Minimum wage would be the same and earnings for any particular profession would be in par all over the world. Then we can cap yearly earnings to a billion or two with the rest being forced to be taxed at a 100 percent rate to be redistributed to people all over the world as tax rebates.
