Humanity is believed to have caused a mass extinction that is comparable to the mass extinction that occurred when the the dinosaurs went extinct , and according to the World Wide Fund for Nature global biodiversity has declined by approximately 30% since 1970. Conversely, it can take many million years to increase the global biodiversity by 30% with the slow evolutionary processes that generates new species. Loss of biodiveristy has been shown to have a negative effect on humanity in numerous of ways. We believe that policies to reverse the decline in global biodiversity and thereby prevent an ecological collapse must be implemented globally in order to be effective. A new world government therefore seems to be required to deal with the ecological issues that threaten this planet.
Global wealth inequality is currently enormous, with 0.7% of the richest people in the world owning 45.6% of the world’s wealth, while 73.2% of the poorest people in the world own only 2.4% of the world’s wealth. In the current multinational world, billionaires often place their money in ”tax havens”, and/or move their businesses to other countries to avoid paying taxes. Because of these loopholes, global wealth inequality continues to grow. With a new world government, billionaires will not have any ”tax havens”, or any countries they can move to if they are unhappy with paying taxes. The tax laws will be the same everywhere.
Today superpowers are competing against each other to get the most advanced weapons. The nuclear weapons we have today can destroy civilization as we know it. If a new world government orders all the superpowers to get rid of their nuclear weapons, our civilization will be much safer. It can also set a limit for how large national armies can be, so that nations do not need to waste so much money on military expenses, and other nations do not feel threatened by them.
