If you are the world government, you have the world's military, and probably control the world's communication networks. Look at the buster call. It would be a simple matter to declare martial law over whatever district rebelled and not tell any of the rest of the world, so that they simply think they were revolting against everyone else.
Uryuu freaky, pale and geeky,
how do your powers grow?

What I'm saying is that if the WG has an alliance with, lets say 5,000 countries and more than 60% percent of them decided to rebell against the WG because of the WG's past, the WG would have a hard time dealing with it since not every single country is going to sit on their ass waiting for a buster call to hit them. Plus, an attack on so many countries would hardly go unnotice. And lets say if they manage to kill off everybody that opposed them, where would they get new recruitments? The majority of the people would be dead and among those that are left would probably be reluctant to join. In addition, we have seen some non-corrupted people in the Marines and they might also rebell if they discovered the WG's past.

All this talk of rebelling reminds me of Drago... did I spell his name right?
We haven't heard about him in, what, 300+ chapters?
It also kind of reminds me what Crocodile atempted to do, and of Don Flamingo's rant about the "New Age".
Hell, even Shanks and White Beard could be involved in something that could result in a revolt, as the WG absolutely does not want them to make contact. They even have tabs on them; maybe a spy in one of their ranks?

what does it take for a pirate to be a sichibukai. i think a bounty of over 1 billion berri. . . . hahaha. luffy can make that bounty after destroying enies lobby. . i think.. when will the rest of the chapters come out im itching to read whats going to happen next.

it's been mentioned, one of the Shichibukai had a final bounty of 3xx million
Crocodile was also one of the member of Shichibukai. and Blackbeard is the next runnerup.

To be a Shichibukai, you have to be a Pirate that alone could kill a good number of Marines by yourself. You either have to be equal or stronger than their Admirals to be considered a threat to them. If you aren't a threat to them, why would they need you to join the Shichibukai.

Being Shichibukai doesn't neccesarily mean you have to be equal or stronger than admirals its more about how big your name is. Such as Blackbeard wanting to take out a high bounty pirate to get in so that people will fear him.

I know right, If a Shichibukai is not as strong or stronger than an Admiral, why would the WG need him?? It doens't make sense for them to enlist Blackbeard just because he captures Luffy. you need To be at top tier of the Pirate Echelon. Ace is stronger than Blackbeard who was his subordinate and if Whitebeard could have Pirates like that under him then he's even stronger.
Now if Luffy defeats another 1 or two Shichibukai, he might even get an invitation but I know he'll flat out refuse to even meet with them.

luffy won't get an invitation, as shanks or WB didn't get any too... they are considered top criminals, and the government know they can't buy them like the others ^^
also a shichibukai doesn't need to be stronger than an admiral, the idea is that with a shichibukai the admirals will have less work to do, and don't forget there are only 3 admirals so they really need allies even if they are less powerfull
btw, i think we could say that ao kiji is stronger than crocodile, so we have an example here than shichibukai doesn't need to be more powerful than admirals (also if they were stronger than the admirals, why would they be shichibukai to begin with ?? they could crush the government)
