Well, nowadays, in 2050 it’s a reality.
What does it mean?
It means that the world has become one single nation, with one government with Amabo as president, one mother tongue and the cultures amalgamated in one single culture.

“But our world is already perfect, why should we want to change it?”, asked with a baby voice one of them.
“And so you call perfect a world where French people don’t go around with a baguette under their armpit, Italians don’t cook good pasta and English people don’t drink tea at 5pm?”, answered peacefully the old man. ….to be continued….
