    So we have Americans talking secession but we think we are gonna get along with the Sri Lankans enough to have a government with them? LOL.

    I said probably not, but I think the Chinese may have this plan. The Chinese are so unlike the American (consumer) they will gladly take 100 to 200 years to accomplish their goal. The current Chinese leadership may not have such a dream, but then they don't seem to mind working towards it.

    Even if a mass dying occurred there would still be folks who don't want to be part of the larger group.

    I can see something to the effect of the European Union, Asian Union, North American Union, South American Union, African Union.. and possibly partnerships between them, however a single global gov't probably isn't in the best interests of anyone, and would be extremely difficult to deal with.

    There is already gridlock among American gov't, and we are only around 310million people. Imagine +6 billion people all with different religions/cultures/ideologies/social structures/wealth trying to be governed under one.. It would be a massive undertaking that I just don't see possible.

    It's almost inevitable (20-50yrs) that eventually some sort of unified authority or organized group will be recognized in control, even if countries keep certain rights, like statehood, leaders and national heritage. The United Nations, U.S. and several industry giants already practice a form of global influence.

    Will there ever be a global government? I hope to God not.

    I think it is ultimately inevitable.

    I think it will be multinational corporations that will ultimately cause it to develop.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Many of them
    Hundreds, maybe thousands of years will pass, then man will overthrow the shackles of religion.
    He will be a lot smarter, I hope, and accept a one-world government, which will respect its citizens and realize that the government people are public servants.
    Hatred, bigotry, intolerance will be things of the past...but this will take time, even as things are slowly, ever so slowly , improving..
