I don't know about that. At the micro level within individual countries under one ruler, revolts have happened.

At the macro level, revolts might still happen. but then we would have all the resources necessary to end them more easily and hopefully more justly than if the resources were not available to the rulers.

But yes, I tend to agree that not being hungry or poor should reduce evolutional thinking by quite a bit.

I don't understand the relation of what you said to what I said. I meant that we could save tons of money from no building warfare. What is the use of warfare when there is one state?

I thing analogically and, agree when you say an army would not be necessary.

I was looking at the military being replaced by police or whatever the unified world would call their emergency services.

The main point was that people would have less to revolt against.

I hope that clears things up.
