Among the many benefits:

*Globalizing the risks, so that small countries don't face the brunt of the capital system.

*Easier policymaking for crucial issues like climate change.

*One world currency and elimation of passports facillitates travel and trade

*One global world court to ensure accountability

Good luck with that s%!t here in Appalachia the rest of the world can go fish....

I can make that easy for ya... they'd take anything and everything, til there's nothing left. Including your equality, you know, unless you're a party boss. And that would give 'some are more equal than others' real meaning..

And one more layer of corruption, fraud, waste and crony capitalism.

And one giant step backward.
