Today, the OWS released a manifesto. This manifesto calls for global democracy. I think it's important we discuss this issue simply because this movement has close ties with the OWS.
Personnally, I think ''global democracy'' would be the worst thing that could ever happen. The idea of global governance is what got us all into such mess in the first place. The richs have been calling for a global governance for a long time and have yet to obtain it. Please, do not imagine that creating a much bigger and more powerfull governement will solve any problems that we might have with our current ones. And, please also consider that being canadians, our situation isn't as bad as most claim.
In my opinion, we must avoid at all cost any idea of a one-world governement or unity. If anything, decentralisation is what should be proposed instead. By decentrallizing our powers, we manage to have much more ''human'' contacts with eachother and therefor, have logical actions.
Please leave your thoughts about it, whatever they may be
