    I would be bitterly opposed. Moreover, I think people should make much, much greater use of local currencies. There are several towns in the US and England who have launched such ventures, such as the Stroud Pound

    This is ethnically neutral ground. We are not Europeans.

    Eventually, all the world's currencies and governments should merge into one. Not hastily though. At this point I would not recommend it.

    You're triggering one of the standard right wing conspiracy theory memes about how the Progressives are trying to destroy the USA via the New World Order.

    No way. The US$ is at the brink of collaps. Euro has its own problems. Why take on more problems?

    If they be good workmen, they may be from Asia, Africa, or Europe; they may be Mohammedans, Jews, or Christians of any sect, or they may be Atheists.

    What does it matter how it would be called, and what part of "not hastily" don't you understand?

    Your vision for the world is a frightful one. Needless to say, I am of the exact opposite opinion. Governance should be kept as small and as local as possible. A world government would inevitably end in totalitarianism.
