Twitter CEO Elon Musk said Wednesday at the World Government Summit in Dubai that the world should be wary of a one-world government.
“One thing I should say, and I know this is called the World Government Summit, but I think we should be, maybe, a little bit concerned about actually becoming too much of a single world government,” Musk said.
“If I may say that we want to avoid creating a civilization risk by having — frankly this may sound a little odd — too much cooperation between governments. You know, if you’re looking at history and the rise and fall of civilizations, really all 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,” he continued.

“While Rome was falling, you know, Islam was rising,” Musk said. “And that actually ended up being a source of preservation of knowledge and many scientific advancements. So I think we want to be a little bit cautious about being too much of a single civilization, because if we have too much of a single civilization, then the whole thing may collapse.” (RELATED: Elon Musk Spent The Super Bowl With Fox News Owner Rupert Murdoch)
“I think we want to be a little bit wary of actually cooperating a little too much. It sounds a little odd but we want to have some amount of civilization diversity such that if something does go wrong with some part of civilization, that the whole thing doesn’t collapse and humanity keeps moving forward,” he added.
The summit is “dedicated to shaping the future of governments” and focuses on “harnessing innovation and technology to solve universal challenges facing humanity,” according to the event website.
