Fang Talks

Bananas aren't curved.

So one of my good friends wants to dominate the world.

We had a little chat about this one Skype just now. (Feel free to correct me here, pal.) He said that the only way to create a world of peace was to become a dictatorial leader, threaten other countries to make peace, and nuke them down if they don’t. That’s pretty much what it came down to, at least. We went back and forth on this a bit, I told him my arguments against him, and he retaliated some. To be honest, I still don’t agree with him.

The main issue here is the immorality of the whole deal. You can’t just threaten people into making peace. Hell, even the becoming a dictator part just doesn’t sit well with me. Sure, people are dumb, and democracies aren’t getting us anywhere (sorry folks), but that doesn’t justify pretty much enforcing your ideas and opinions onto others. Besides, forced peace doesn’t last, or at least doesn’t feel as good as real, honest peace.

Then of course there’s the thing about a “perfect world” requiring we get rid of most of the current population. He even said that he himself may be one of the people that need to be done away with, simply because he’s hella lazy and that doesn’t get the world as a collective anywhere. Same goes for the aforementioned democracies, but also people who let their life choices be influenced by their religion, and other things like that.

This post has become kind of a scary mess, with very little distinction between his words and mine. Mostly his though, but eh, whatever. Nobody’s going to hate on us for our opinions, right? Oh wait, we don’t live in a perfect world yet. Too bad.

Also, shame his chances of succeeding at this are pretty darn close to zero.

    That’s why you take his ideas and combine it with mine. Bribe people into world peace.

    Or bribe people into making certain people disappear…

    Of course his chances are zero, for I shall be the one to rule the world! All I need is some more time. You can’t force people to live in peace, although one could argue that there are times when someone coming up, and unifying the land, has worked. Look at Japan and China, they were made up of lots of different colonies and what have you until a warlord turned up and conquered them all, unifying the country under himself. Yes, there was a ton of war and violence to get there, but unification was achieved. I still don’t think it’s the right way though, and wish that more countries would take the lead of the countries out there that don’t have an army. There are some countries that don’t have one at all.
