Actually answer is obvius. I know. But the question leads to why people is so arrogant and selfish? Does gaming and movies have effect on this?

No....It's not because we are arrogant and selfish, though we do tend to do that as a species frequently. It's because we all have such different cultural, economic, political, social backgrounds that trying to have one single world government will make us implode.

Or, if you're not talking about world government, but talking about country politics, it's because people simply have different opinions. I support gay marriage, others don't. Ergo, differences, ergo support for different parties and leaders. Not very hard to understand is it?

Nichodemus is right.

People can't really ever get along, completely.

Different religions, beliefs, backgrounds, all of this will prevent Humans from becoming one Nation.

Besides, after all the wars and suffering we've caused each other, I don't think anyone want's to 'Unite and become one big nation'.

....Gaming and movies? Are you some kind of moron?

People don't unite because there would be no point in uniting unless it was forced. You would be a fool to not recognize the vastly different cultures between countries, putting them under one democratic rule would just end up being exactly like it is right now. If some one forced them to listen, it would be different, but any free government would be pointless.

For example, lets say that the world did go threw with this foolish plan and unite. What laws would you apply to everyone? Even countries with similar beliefs and shared cultures would disagree on the most basic of things. For example, if you outlawed guns everywhere the U.S would be up in arms about it, while the U.K would be fine with it. If you wanted to give everyone socialist healthcare, the U.S would be against it and the U.K would be for it. It would be the opposite if you did the opposite, legalize guns everywhere and the U.K would be up and arms about it, while the U.S would be for it. Get rid of socialist healthcare and the same thing would happen. And that is just with the U.S and the U.K, this is a large world with many different cultures, there is no way that all of them can agree on anything.

Not to mention that making a big nation would simply be pointless. What would the world gain from such a thing?

314d1 I actually meant isn't becoming one nation. It's uniting. Becoming one big nation. What I meant is with helping and loving each other. Not govermental meanings. I know that sounds stupid. The topic is a bit false-leading. And what I meant by games and movies is like racist ones. Or showing religious things in the false ways. I'm a nerd dude. I won't somebody to judge games or movies for this kind of things. I mean games and movies sometimes shows so many wrong things if u know what i mean.

Oh! Not becoming one nation...but becoming one nation! Thanks for clearing that up!

What I meant is with helping and loving each other.


What nation acts like that?

Not govermental meanings.


So it would literally do nothing.

. I know that sounds stupid. The topic is a bit false-leading


That seems to be your own fault.

And what I meant by games and movies is like racist ones.


...Examples?

Or showing religious things in the false ways.


Who does that?


I'm a nerd dude.

Sadly such a utopian view is unrealistic. People aren't influenced by video games, studies have shown almost no correlation between violence and video games; much less racist attitudes. If anything, video games and movies are part of a deep seated culture, and as we all know, cultures have their own intricate prejudices and paradigms.

If 314d1 didn't get banned for bashful comments yet, I wonder what Zega did to get banned...

Anywho, as nicho and 314 said, it's impossible to do this. And also, idiotic. It would simply not work. Same like communism, good in theory, but impossible in reality.

What nation acts like that?


When you're a kid, your own nation sure does.

Not govermental meanings.


Governmental meanings? Just... what?

I mean games and movies sometimes shows so many wrong things if u know what i mean.


If you mean violent games, or games that have drug-related stuff in them, I see no way how this could influence this Utopia you are imagining. And I'm yet to play a game with racism in it, except for maybe 'The Warriors'.

It isn't that people are selfish or that they hats eachother. Its that people disagree about the way the world should be run. Democracy? Devine provinance? And who would decide that?
