One superpower is better than two in world.


  • Having two super powers leads to a situation of constant tension between two nations. This leads to cloud of fear covering world. World Wars have been an evidence of extent to which human breed can go to stay in power and to suppress other nations. Be it Pearl Harbor or the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, game of power has adverse effects.

  • If two super powers exist than they can indulge in wasting their resources in WAR and other destructive activities.


  • If we have only one superpower, there will be no nuclear arms race and terrorism could be controlled, but as we have witnessed since in past century, after US emerging as sole power, terrorism has increased.

  • If there is one superpower, and it collapses, all other economies across world get badly affected, because of dependency of all countries on one super power. However, this impact can be mitigated; if we have more than one superpower. Like what is happening in current recession.

  • Existence of two super powers is very necessary for world because it put us in balanced situation otherwise one power could hurt other countries.

  • Competition between two super powers can do lot of innovations; race to moon between US and Russia has given lot of invention during cold war.

  • The existence of one superpower leads to natural monopoly wherein leader becomes complacent to point of becoming unabashedly cruel, as demonstrated by USA in Iraq.


  • Existence of 2 3 4 Super power do not matter what matters, super powers are putting their resources in development of humanity rather wasting them in destructive activities.

Point: Look, competition b/w nation has lead us to this point where we have created so many useful and disasterous things that not only comfort us but also affect us badly. Arm forces and economy of a country make it super power. So in my opinion 2or more power nation within this world is good. There should be one organisation which take the responsibility of controling these power nation.

Point: Instead of being any nation or states to be super power it would be better that all the nations be on the same line.. this will ensure progress and development for the other nations and all the resources would be used for productive purposes.

Point: Even if we have a single superpower or multiple bodies trying to achieve it there would always be a competition and race among them.However what we require is independent regulatory body like UN(although presently controlled by the superpower) having all the sole rights and power and very much transparent to take its own decisions with leaders representing from every corner and placing their view over the table to overcome any world wide issues.
