Elon Musk slams idea of “world government” at World Government Summit

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Elon Musk is not perfect by any means, and a lot of his decisions are deserving of criticism. However, if there is one thing that one cannot really complain about when it comes to the CEO, it is the fact that Musk will never be afraid to speak his mind. 

This was exactly what happened when Musk addressed the audience at the World Government Summit (WGS). The WGS is a high-profile event where leaders are expected to exchange ideas and visions about pressing issues that are prevalent today. The event features thousands of leaders, including 250 ministers and the heads of 80 international, regional, and governmental organizations.

During his virtual segment, Musk took it upon himself to explain that humanity should be concerned about becoming too much of a single world government. “I know this is called the World Government Summit, but I think we should be a little concerned about becoming too much of a single world government. If I may say, we want to avoid creating a civilizational risk by having, frankly — this may sound a little odd — too much cooperation between governments,” Musk said.

The Tesla CEO saw the irony in his words considering the name of the event. However, Musk explained that if one were to look at the rise and fall of civilizations, humanity’s survival could mostly be credited to other civilizations that were thriving while one was declining. 

“If you look at history at the rise and fall of civilizations, throughout history, civilizations have risen and fallen, but it hasn’t meant the doom of humanity as a whole because there have been all these separate civilizations that were separated by great distances,” Musk said. 

Musk noted that a good example of this would be the fall of the Roman Empire, which happened at roughly the same time when Islam was gaining momentum. Thanks to this, Musk noted, a lot of knowledge and scientific advancements were preserved. With this in mind, Musk noted that civilizational diversity would be the way to go.

“We wanna have some amount of civilizational diversity such that if something does go wrong with some part of civilization, the whole thing doesn’t collapse and humanity keeps moving forward,” Musk said. 

Musk supported his stance on Twitter, noting in a response to a video of his talk that the WGS “seemed like the right venue” to share his thoughts.

While Musk’s words typically attract a lot of polarizing reactions online, his comments about the dangers of a single world government were well-appreciated by many. On Twitter alone, numerous users lauded the CEO’s stance, partly due to the fact that it’s a sensible sentiment and partly because Musk shared his thoughts at an event that directly references a single world government.
