If I had authority over who would be allowed to roam the Earth, I would leave the world as it is, instead of pressing for a uniform people. My reasons behind this are because according to history, the press for uniformity has caused wars and hateful acts to occur. Another reason for my decision is that it provides variety in everyday life. Finally, diversity is innovative and profitable. However, there are some benefits to uniformity as well. Nonetheless, I would prefer diversity over uniformity. The press for a uniform people is evident throughout all of history. An example of this is the Nazi movement.
