The arguments against[edit]

If one distinguishes, for convenience, between the 'conventions, standards agreements and suchlike on particular topics' (so people at least know what they are disagreeing about and which language to use) and 'one world government.' The former are developed over time and are likely to involve much hairsplitting on technicalities, and gnashing of teeth (as going too far/not far enough) and they exist in the real world, and the latter is the construct of the anti-one-worldists.

  1. The simplest argument - try and organise an office/family/street party/office meeting and see all the problems arising - and then try and develop the process upwards to encompass the whole world at more than the basic level (conventions on shaking hands or bowing slightly, not starting a war over some trivial problem etc).
  2. Persons arguing over who has the 'prettier/gooder' button.
  3. Accidentally revealing the script directions ('pretend to be sincere about disliking them' etc).
