What a lovely idea.
Too bad that it crashes directly with the very basics of the human
nature - which is the only thing that has not changed for all those
thousand years of written history. Despite all the glorious
technological advancements we have achieved, we are still the very same
bloodthirsty and envious creatures as we were in the days when the stars
were young and too sad that we did not learn nothing in the process,
still ignorant to everything but us.
No state system or religion, be it democracy or communism, be it islam
or christianity, will change that. It simply does not matter.
