    Re: Will There Ever Be a Global Government on Earth?

    I'm not going to go as far as to say that it's impossible for it to happen, but the chances of every government and religion congregating together just seems slightly nonsensical-- at least for today's day and age.
    Maybe it'll happen one day, but that day isn't coming any time soon...
    I don't solve problems, I create them.

    A common challenge does not require one world government. If people feel an issue is important enough, then it will be easy to create some international treaty. The reason we haven't done much about global warming is because people don't think the issue is important enough, and I hardly believe global warming is going to be the biggest problem for the west in the 21th century. There is no reason why humans shouldn't be able to stand a temperature increase of 2-3C. I think the biggest challenge for the west is to deal with the shortage of oil, fall inn standard of living and to deal with debt bubbles.

    However a one world government will be difficult to reverse, will be corrupt, and will hardly be democratic. First off half of the countries in the world are not democratic, and even if they are that does not guarantee that the national governments represent the population at international level.

    I wonder if people would be in favor of a world-wide direct democracy when billions of people in other countries can impose their values on you.

    Considering europe with the EU and euro currency have been our way of testing the waters for this, I would hope their failures will teach some of the proponents why it isn't a good idea.

    Well, people better start coming up with better reasons than "omg fascism" to counter it. So far a confederation of global powers looks to be the likely outcome. If anything, I see two confederations, due to the split caused by the Cold War. East and West all over again, with those stuck in the middle forced to make a tough decision.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I don't live on absolutes...so impossible and inevitable are eliminated, but I will say it probably will not happen.
