What if we all were one color, one race, one language, one religion, one belief, one everything! Would that solve the problem of the barriers between people and countries? Would that makes us more closer to each other, and there would no wars and people dying of poverty? I always wonder what if all of were the same, and not have different nationalities and languages and no separate lands. We are not born stating that we only belong to so and so country. The whole world is ours... so then why the differences? Would it really make a difference?

I think god did make us one. We are all human some have blues eyes, dark skin, red hair. But we are all part of one race the race is call the human race. Sure we look different speak a different language but never the less we are all the same.We are the ones that separated ourselves and put our self in a different class. You don't see animals of different colors showing hate toward each other. Then why do we? I think we are one world why cant we just get along?

@ Bamboee Your right sometimes I think animals are smarter then humans in certain aspect. Such as enviroment and natural disasters. We rely on the weather channel on our phones while animals rely on their instinct. Sometimes we are wrong but their mostly right isnt that something? They learn to live in harmony and we choose to live in hate thats ashame. Life is a series of choices and we made ours.

Yes frans, your absolutely right! Animals get to know first if some calamity is going to befall upon that place or area. So they start to move away and find a finding place. Definitely they are far more smarter than us, its just us living in a delusion that we are more smarter than them. Just because we can read and write and talk we think we can out think them. Unfortunately we are the one's who are actually the greatest fools of all. If you even look at this way, Animals dont do anything to harm this planet. And look at what we do? Wasting, pollution, harmful gases, destroying nature?... We are killing the only place we have to live - what about generations to come? so ya, we are the greatest fools of all... Yes, life is definitely a series of choices and each choice that a person makes effects someone or the other in a certain way, it could effect nature, plant, animal, human and the world!!! but we dont think about all this because we think we juz live and die, who cares what happens to the world!! Cheers. P.S= your so right about the fact that all that would matter in the after life is the GOOD we all did here, that is what God is going to count.. I bet He will be done sooner!

Hello Bambo you seem very alert and aware of who you are and your place on this earth. I think its deffinately true we humans are the one indangering our planet. With polution wasting water and tons of other things. I took a survey the other day and it was about us wasting our water system that sometime in the near future a large population of the earth is going to have a huge water scarcity. I was at work and I so this guy full the cup with water and then took a few sips and throw away the rest of the water. I thought to myself the survey is right we are heading to water scarcity soon.

If there are other countries, then no it would not solve all the problems. We would still fight because one country would think they are better than the others. If, taking literally what you say as far as ... one everything ..., then yes, problems solved! Because that would make us all the same, even our personalities, the way we think, look, and everything. Some may say that would be boring, but if everyone is the same, they wouldn't know any different because they haven't experienced differences.

Well ya its like in the animal kingdom or the bird kingdom, they all look same!! but still as many of our lotters have said that people who want to fight and create issues will still create problems. Because humans have that nature, they just want to be the best. I guess even if they had exact same features and personality, some how they would create something to fight about. Maybe then it would be fight about who wears the best clothes, or have the best car and maybe that would be the major in the world!! Oh God, this can only be solved in heaven. Thanks for your response scoop :)!

Ok, I wasn't sure what you meant by being the same. And I think you're right. There would be some who want to be better, problem not solved :)

Haha yes, problem never solved. Unless humans give up wanting to be better than one and another and having more than the person next to them..

well if you find it boring, and to make it exciting you want to fight? have people killed? people die out of starvation? .. i think I would rather live in a boring world than to see other suffer.

I am glad that you will think about it now. And I am sure you dont want suffering in the world :) I know we humans cant live a boring life, that is why in olden ages we ended up creating different kinds of sports that would give us some enjoyment. But these days people find killing and harming people as a sport. I hope things get better!

I wish those things can really happen my friend, but i think it will not work. Even those people who are one or live in their own country has something to fight over. Some countries have civil wars, some people want to be the leader. You see, what you say would be very good, and i hope that someday somehow, all the wars, poverty would be eliminated in the world. But all i know, each one of us, could make a difference in our own little way.

True tatzkie, you have said it very right. That maybe one day it can happen, if each one of us does something even a little to make a difference in the world. Leaders cant control us, we are who we are, and we all humans in the world unite - what can these leaders with money do? they cant force us to fight? they cant force us not to help each other.. So you have said it :), we all have to put in our efforts to unite this world and maybe that dream will come true some day!! God bless you. Thanks for the best response.

Hi bamboee, I feel sorry about this world, especially when a lot of people are really affected by those things in life. I feel sad, when i see people dying from war, hunger, poverty. I realized that i we have to appreciate life and just be contented on what we have.

I had sort of a backwards take to this discussion. My first reaction was to think how certain groups in history tried to wipe out other groups so that there would be only one color, one race, one religion, one belief - meaning THEIRS. And of course the outcome was always gruesome . . . it was never a good thing. What color, race, language, religion, belief would be "the one"?
@Bamboee (645)

I understand what your trying to say.. ofcourse I dont want to eliminate, i just wish when the world itself came we all were just one of everything. having everything same and equal but ofcourse then how would the world run? because when people fight and take over lands, that is when economy booms and things happen. When powerful people run the world and poor people kill themselves to build it that is how the world works.. so if we all were the same, then what? I dont care what religion, color, race, language or belief would be the one.. Maybe it was something which does not even exist in this world I think that would be better off :) thanks for your response!

you are right my friend, with people having mix cultural marriages, we never know that one day in a billion years we reach that stage. then maybe that generation will open a same topic on mylot saying that when my great great greatest of grandfathers and mothers were talking about bringing peace in the world with no differences, they were right - we will still have problems if we become one!! :) haha, I am sure that day will come...

No, I don't think that eliminating race, religion, countries and skin color would solve the world's problems. We'd just find something else to fight about. Possibly a group of unemployed men would start a war out of boredom.

Hahaha, well ya some of the lotters found that kind of world very boring! so yes, its always normal when one problem is solved in the other world, some other problem comes, so its just a never ending process of problems no matter how much we try to fix it. Lets just try our best to change ourselves for the better!! Maybe that could be the start! Cheers.

If this is possible, it would be a very boring world. And even people with the same colour, religion etc. are different, you know this. The decision is to make more and more people learn how to live better together. Maybe one day this will be possible.

No It will not create any difference. It will create more problem. If their are no poor who will make house or will work for rich or if their are no rich who will generate money for poor.

Exactly that is the whole thing? Why not work urself? Well ofcourse people cant do that, because they dont know how to do that! to work hard, to go through the tough way!

I guess thats what it would take for some people. Those are haters. But personally i would think it quite boring. I really love a accent. Love different races and cultures.

Well different races and cultures are wonderful, only if we all could find to come in peace terms. but I guess we can not.. so I will just drop the idea for this generation.. atleast we all can try little by little, and spread love and harmony :) maybe someday, it will come true :) we all will be one big happy family! Thanks for ur response.

That sounds like the definition of communism - everybody is equal; all foe one and one for all. Great theory. In practice, however, some consider themselves more 'equal' than others and demand (and get) a bigger share of the pot. We are young on this planet. We still have a lot to sort out and in a million years we may end up one of everything as you say.

true smacks in a million to billions years maybe we come to being ONE NATION !! But as everyone is here saying on my lot and even you said it, there still will be new problems that will arise.. And we are not going to live to see that day :) so I wish best of luck to the future generation after millions years. thanks for ur response.

No, it won't solve anything really. There will always be something that some people will consider themselves better than others. That is just something that is ingrained right in the back of the human mind. Even those who try to look past the differences, will in the back of their mind, be judging a lot of people about something or something. Plus the world would be a rather dismal and rather boring place if everyone was the same. That is the true price of world peace in the end. You have peace, but you pretty much lose any choice of free will and thus rather any reason that you are going to want to live. So it would close one box of problems but still open up more and it would be rather bland. It would make no difference and it would lead to a different kind of problem.

Hello Matt, your last sentence sums it all, that it would just lead to another problem that will be created by us - humans! Even no matter how much we try to kill the differences, we cant because after all we are humans and no one on this planet can think or feel alike :), we all are different, have our individual personalities. So no matter how much we want to omit the bad, from somewhere it can rise again. Thanks for your response.

i would argue that many conflicts have been about land, especially land that offers money making opportunities. its just that people tend to form communities, or tribes, and then create disputes over things like land. i think the problem would be that those who see differences in other people and fear those differences would still find reasons to dislike those who are different. the story underneath every conflict, that seems to be about nationality, there is almost certainly a demagogic leader who wanted more power, and used the people of his country to achieve that. after the term "the king's shilling" would suggest that many people who fought in wars did so for the money. its a nice idea, but i think those who want to fight will always find a reason too.
@Bamboee (645)

True and we can not kill that nature of the human, fighting for power and money. Certainly even if people want to stay in peace and happiness the leaders dont let them because some way or the other they make it about "being the richest country, or being the most resourceful country, or having all the natural resources in power".. and thus the public and the poor people in the country are made bait and used to gather those powers and resources. Which leads to wards and crimes, and people fighting with each other. If only this inner devil of fighting could be removed then I think we can come to a day where there could be peace, but that can never happen... its just impossible..

I guess then we should make a world with just good people in it! Maybe that will solve the issue..because bad people just wont let good people survive happily no matter how much they want to be together. Thanks for your response.

It wouldn't solve anything. People would still hate each other. Have you ever read Dr. Seuss? The butter side uppers would fight against the butter side downers. People would still find something to fight about. Even if everything is the same they would find something to fight about, whether it was tall people vs. short people or west vs. east or north vs. south.
@Bamboee (645)

It definitely wont solve, I think I have come to agree. Because what your saying really makes sense, people will fight about anything and everything. Even if there is nothing to fight about they will still find a way to create a mess and a problem. Thanks for your response.

No it would not. As long as humans live, they will automatically form groups, and those groups will find any excuse for hating other groups.
