    Yea but look at superpowers today. What do they all want? More power! If one person ruled the world what is to stop them from imposing stupid laws like "All People who have a name "Dave", should be shot?" There would be no one to stop them, which would lead to chaos
    It would be democratic and it wouldn't be a superpower as there would be no other powers at all, and countries don't stop other countries from shooting people anyway, and if they did then it would be probably more likely to bring chaos.

    I think the only good thing about communism was the superb education it often provided. It taught things like spelling and grammar.

    Indeed. Resistance is futile. The rebel alliance will soon be crushed.

    how do you judge the best person in the world? You would have dissagreements and probably wars over who was better.
