Can’t argue with that, another one? The bloke who rabbits on about the Championship games on R5/BBC can’t remember the irritating Pratt’s name.

Debt, every single penny of it for every country and person in the world.

It would then be interesting to watch the world develop without it being hindered by current debt levels.

They would reintroduce it as soon as possible.

It's the biggest control government has.

Probably, but it would give various countries a chance to try and drag themselves up instead of continuously paying debts back to the richer and better do countries.

It's crippling places that can't improve themselves.

I agree.

Africa receives 90 billion in aid for 100 billion to be taken in debts every year.

If the debts were all quashed wars would start again and things like the British empire would start back up.

Greed is massive in humans.

Eventually we'll be a mature enough species to not be so concerned about territory and accept that we don't need to be divided into nationalities of people. It won't happen soon, but it'd be nice if it did.
