You do realize that the "United Earth" in Star Trek (what this website is about) is a world government, don't you?

I don't think we'll see a united earth government until we have actually something to unify against or for. For example the discovery of intelligent extra terrestial life. Which is rather unlikely.

One day, hundreds or thousands of years from now, there will be a world government. It will be created by a long slow painful political process. And not before the century numbers start with "3".

I voted for one world government. It's inevitable. Unity is the future.

It seems these One World governments are inevitable... sadly it's not so much "One World" as "Our World or You're History".

Well, somebody's got to run it. Better just hope they're good.

Dictatorship is theoretically the best form of government, offering the greatest economic and social growth. However, it is also with the greatest risk of becoming corrupt and vicious.

But we shouldn't let a few bad experiences with corrupt dictators in the past blind us to it's potential.

In star trek yes :) But the idea of compiling things together is a capitalist model. If it fails, then everything fails.

There is strength maintaining independence.

I don't think there should be one.
