Ok, So I didn't see this one made already. 
 
Question: If you ruled the world, What would It be like?

#2 Edited by mark5 (1213 posts) - - Show Bio

A population of less than 4 billion. Generally a pretty good place i suppose. Equity for all races and both sexes. Any rapist would be chemically castrated. This will also be the punishment for sex offenders and pedophiles. A personal army would be created to instill order. They will be disciplined (or brainwashed if necessary) to rid the world of any evil and discourage rape or misconduct on their part. They will be a paramilitary troop and will stymie any riots, religious upheaval, apparent genocide or injustice with brutal accuracy. No crime will be left unpunished. The jail system would be vastly improved to allow better monitoring of both prisoners and the behavior of the guards and workers. Only those who truly want to help society will be allowed to work in prison. it will be a make-shift rehab center and if progress is too slow on inmates they will be subject to all manners of brainwashing. Both sexes are to be treated as equal and any domestic violence (against spouse or child) would require rehabilitation of the perpetrator.   

Health care and education would be free for those earning below a certain income. All families in the state will be provided weekly provisions of foodstock. Cities will be rolled back in some areas and farmlands would be expanded and GM crops would be encouraged and subsidized if there are no threats to health. The size of the main cities would expand greatly so buildings are spaced out more and congestion is reduced. Every city would have to apply to environmental standards. Those who do not will be taken over by the state marshall. Each building in every city is to be accompanied by a significant area of vegetated land and trees. Solar energy and other renewable energy sources would be the main supply of world energy. Mandatory that 80% of windows in skyscrapers or large buildings (10 levels and over) in all cities must serve as make shift solar panels. Nuclear energy would be abolished as with coal. Oil drilling will be discouraged and payable by a large fine. Large "solar towns" would be established in all world deserts which would provide the bulk of the energy. Islands would be bustling hubs of mega hydroelectric power stations and mountains and plains would have wind mills.  Poaching or hunting of endangered or rare animals is punishable by death. Several animals like eagles will not be allowed even be allowed to be poached or hunted under any circumstance. Licenses would be given to people during 'open seasons' is there are an excess of certain animals in an area. Las Vegas would be relocated to a more suitable area and the Hoover Dam would be destroyed. 
All national debt would be abolished and deforestation in any area apart form under approved government license is punishable by 10 years in jail.   Over-fishing and overgrazing would be punishable by the same.   
Polygamous marriages would be outlawed. 

For the economy, i would stick to Neo-classical economic theory. Encouraging government intervention where necessary in the market but otherwise let the consumer have sovereignty.Narcotics would be legal under the right circumstances and use of them in public is punishable by several years in jail and mandatory rehabilitation (or brainwashing if required).  
People would be greatly encouraged to enter the fields of medical science and engineering from young ages so society would progress technologically. People over 17 would be subject to medical examination every year to check for their health. Those with the most dangerous contagious diseases would be quarantined while others would be given free medical care and discouraged for spreading these diseases.  Families would be greatly encouraged to have more female children especially in territories like China (there 300 MILLION excess males in china right now) and subsidies would be given on the healthcare/education/feeding and taxation of families who do. Mandatory counselling is required for those soon having children. Mandatory social education would be taught in schools from year 1-12. 
 
I think the world would be much better this way.

For one, I would dismantle virtually all constitutional and conventional restraints on my power and build a police state. I would be the head of government and not be responsible to any government body. Local autonomy would be abolished as well. All other parties aside from the fascist party would be outlawed and therefore elections would be outlawed as well. Instead, a Grand Council of Fascism would elect from a single list of candidates that have been approved. I would not hesitate laying siege to towns, using torture, and holding women and children hostage to oblige suspects of crimes against the state to give themselves up. 

Regarding economic policy, I would launch several public constriction programs and government initiatives to combat economic setbacks and unemployment levels. For example, I would establish new agricultural towns and farms on pieces of land dedicated solely for that sort of industry. I would encourage the public to voluntarily donate gold and jewelry, including necklaces and wedding rings, to government officials in exchange for steel. The collected gold would be melted and turned into gold bars, and then distributed to national banks. I would also push for government control of business, making them subject to state authority. I would issue several edicts to further control the economy and force banks, businesses, and private citizens to give up all their foreign-issued stocks and bonds to one national bank. I would institute wage and price controls as well. Most importantly, states will become self-sufficient autarkys, instituting high barriers on trade with most countries.  
 
Everyone, everywhere will bow down to my state.

an open boarder for all of america a american union.
peace for each continent each country within the continent would allow free travel through boarders.
focus on self reliance within each continent for food and tech, restrict travel to other continents via passports and non citizenship of that continent kinda how it is now.
 
Africa and the middle east would be strictly policed and governed to make sure people have religious and political freedom no tolerance for any violent fanaticism.  These two would be my pet project and i would hunt down every despot, rapist murderer to have ever walked the world with my world army. In order to fix problem i would have jobs brought over to help build towns and cities bringing the people to come live and provide services for each other.
 
I curb rampant Capitalism impose strict punishment  for violation of humanitarian rights, and one global standard for business. No abusing third world nations of their resources while the rich get richer and poor get poorer and their lands destroyed.
 
It would be slightly socialist in government health care and education similar to canada. Money would be electronic for the most part like credit cards in cities and towns depending on the social advancement.
 
I would like to do something about the world population but only way to fix that is war but if i ruled the world i guess people would want to stop me on the unset so that might justify me eliminating ppl and reducing world population.. although i am looking at one continent in particular so long as they stay on their continent and not upset the world balance they would be left alone.
 
Surplus food would be traded, sold or given freely depending on circumstances and need.
 
Dolphins whales would no longer be allowed to be hunted and would be an international crime anyone caught hunting them and it is 5 yrs automatic jail sentence crew and all, leniency may be applied for crewmen who did not know.  Drugs like Marijuana, mushrooms, peyotl, cocain even acid would be legal but regulated so to make it as save as can be suicide would also be legal. jails/prison quality would be improved and jails would becomes schools for rehabilitation to earn a degree and those inside would be paid as well for having a work program at least 3 dollars an hour.
 
 Constitutional laws would be strictly enforced no racial profiling of any kind will be tolerated that includes manner of dress illegal searches of possessions regardless if a person has a criminal record allegations will all be looked at. Police Officers will be required to have their video cameras on at every arrest and interaction with a suspect. suspects can video tape and record their interaction with the police without police consent or knowledge.
 
Any Police Officer caught violating civil rights and laws will face harsh punishment up to 5-10 yrs no special preference of any kind.

Because I would either burn it down or well burn it down a different way. One way is the power getting to my head and eventually I shoot missiles all over the world or I put kids in control. Either way we'd all be doomed to a horrible death. So that's why I wouldn't be allowed to rule

I would build an Empire and make everything in my own image. I will conqueror high and low until I rule with an iron fist. It would be a new era under my dominion. I would free the world from it's unjustice and sinful nature and form my own system.

#23 Posted by castleking (24119 posts) - - Show Bio

mine is similar but without the 1st part of using children and women as bargaining chips. I would hold absolute power but each town, city and country would have their own elected official voted by the people. there would be no special interest groups and i would make it illegal for corporate interest groups or foreign investors to play politics. Any corporate investor who wishes to donate for a political party will do so anonymously they will not be allowed to hire or pay any lobbyist. It will be a crime for political people to take favors or money from any special interest group and immediate expulsion and investigation. Money will be ceased from both parties taking up to 70% of their total earnings and jail time. 
 
There would be no amnesty or diplomatic immunity for government officials, they would also have a minimum earning of 80k- 180k no more nor do they have the power to increase their wages. it would be strictly dictated by inflation and terms will last no longer then 4 years. Supreme justice will be appointed by the state representative but will only hold a term of 5 years.
 
personal religious affiliation will not be used for any voting and will not be allowed to be brought up during election, all choices must be made for the good of the people and the majority interest of the people. Which means abortion would be legal, fetus stem cell research would be legal, condoms for schools and so on.
 
i would basically be the UN with legitimate power while the continents and each city state, country ran itself independently. by i would review controversial laws with my UN faculty in case it needs over ruling for the people when some slime ball politicians tries to get a fast one over on the people and he will be made an example.
 
also i try to get ppl to stop being so status drive withe everyone wanting to be doctors and lawyers forcing them to see the reality of the world and everyone having to play a crucial part from working in the field, janitor to doctors. menial jobs would get a pay increase due to how hard it is and a person having a fair share of the "sweat off his brow."  Which means everyone would have the ability to make a decent living plus cost prices on food should drop significantly due to how the world would be set up.
 
I also regulate the power company and start looking at other forms of electricity and look at Nikla Desla technology, i would cut the price of electricity of each house hold by 30% and cut the income of how much an owner or Ceo can earn from their company and pay the workers a more distributed wage. So you wont see a Ceo or Owner making 100mil or billion a year while their workers make 7 to 8 bucks an hour. it would be cut to about 8 million for a Ceo if that and owners reduced 100 million and bumping ppl at 3 dollars more and the rest going back for alternative power and the upkeep after that he can keep the rest.  I hate horders of any kind.
 
Taxes would be one flat fee each year of 15% of each person's earnings, house and land taxes would be a one time fee 7% of the total price of the house. The land and house once paid off is the owners nor can it be taken away by government as it is privately own property, banks will be heavily regulated on how much interest can be added on a person's loan as they are some of the biggest thieves on the planet. Large businesses will be taxed accordingly but will not enjoy the individual perks of the people. Small business will be given tax ride offs and exceptions in order to help them grow till they reach a certain income size and begin to profit and can support itself independently no longer requiring tax exceptions. Government spending will be  curtailed and no frivolous spending nor spending 300 dollars on toilet seats, 50 dollar toilet paper and so on.

I'd move to get rid of borders and have a one centralized united world government with individual nations acting as states do in the US. I'd get rid of the world's militaries and invest in educational and environmental causes. Stop the world's dependency on oil and natural gas and invest in alternative energy sources such as solar and wind power.  Heavily regulate multinational corporations, stop the exploitation of third world countries by western nations/corporations and start about bringing the third world into the first. Combat religious, cultural and ethnic differences with education and uniting ourselves under a common goal such as scientific discovery and raising the standard of living.

Others policies would be:

2. Make MMA the universal sport and there would be an MMA world cup every 4 years. But first I'll take over UFC and revive Pride.
3. Outlaw nonsensical sports like golf.
4. Disney Land in every major city is mandatory, or else I nuke them. Cities with six flags would be exempted.
5. Save the world by banning all carbon emitting stuff like vehicles and factories. Except for me. I get a Nuclear power plant to power all my personal vices.

If I ruled the entire planet we'd already have a working space station at least because if every space program world wide combined their funding and worked together they'd get a lot more done, also since we'd all be under a single government led by me we wouldn't need as much military funding because if its all the same nation they wouldn't have any one to fight any way and there wouldn't be any branches of the military it'd all be one big organization so we wouldn't have to worry about a bunch of separately funded branches competing against each other  for funding. There would be a mandatory world wide living wage and any company who didn't obey that law would see their C.E.O.s in prison, real prison not those white collar day spas, all people would be held equally accountable for their actions, no more slaps on the wrists for celebrities they do commit grand theft they go to prison not house arrest on the beach. Pedophiles, rapists and murderers would be executed in the most cost efficient way possible.  Any bribery of any public official would be considered treason no exceptions, lobbyists giving monetary gifts to politicians would be considered bribery.

I would declare myself emperor. My declaration is final and I would be a just and fair leader. A council of leaders would oversee the rest of the word, but no single man (other than myself) holds sway over another within the council. My spies would be everywhere, quelling potential uprising. Elite commandos would guard my fortress. Where would my throne be? Not sure. Somewhere warm. 
 
There would be no war. All rebellions would be instantly crushed. For the most part, I think it would be a utopia. I would attempt to convert unused land into farms and green houses, as well as creating underwater farms. I would also fund research into a space colony and/or underwater colonies.
