@peter jeffrey cobb,
Surely there has to be positives and negatives for either side of the discussion. What are they?

@peter jeffrey cobb,
Well let me make sure that I understand the basic concept. This is an organization built to promote peace around the world, but if your feet is touching a certain part of the world your representative for that part will have more or less power in speaking your affairs. Am I right?

@contrex,
Well, depending on what nation your feet is touching, your representative to the United Nations ,will carry either more or less of a voice than the other nations. Because a few nations can out vote the rest of the world with a single veto. Am I right?

@peter jeffrey cobb,
So I'm sure having such a system were depending were a World Citizen is stepping, their vote on World affairs has a lesser or greater value. Could you please provide me with your beliefs on why such a system is beneficial or harmful to the mission that the organization was created for.

Let's put it this way.

Ignorant people have the same political power as intelligent people because anyone can press a button - we learned that from Dexter's Laboratory.

Do not forget that there are far more stupid people than intellectual people. The votes are based on "numbers", not ideas or details.

@One Eyed Mind,
So when the World court makes a judgment toward or against the benefit of a Nation, having the sole power to overturn the courts judgment, how does that help or hinder the peace process?

@peter jeffrey cobb,
What the **** are you talking about?

I just said it all.

Your question doesn't seem to be in English.

Can you please rephrase your sentence? It's circular-logic.

Oh , it's that I didn't understand your reply. Are you saying that the nation's that holds the veto power should be based on their education system?

I am saying that if we want to take our community seriously and our economy seriously, we need to take the process of voting people in seriously because right now, these are not PEOPLE - these are PRIMATES.

What Nation are you referring to? Being that all humans share a common ancestor, which of our cousins are you referring to?

Could you please use simple language for my simple mind ? Is there a particular representative of a Nation that you believe that this person is not qualify for the job? Could you name any of these people you are referring to?

@peter jeffrey cobb,
If you combine all the people from the 10 most populated Countries in the World, it would still be less than half of the World's population. So why does any one Nation hold the power to overturn the rest of the World's decisions?

Here's my advice.

Don't create a society that has education systems on the lowest priority and not passing laws that forbids schools from scamming their way to the "top schools" by abusing numbers and sources.

The internet with over 80% of the World's knowledge , a computer screen away, it's a great first step in fixing this problem :-)
