    Yes, I think it is likely we will one day have a global government. But not for centuries and I don’t think it will be through force.

    To some degree there already is and it revolves around corporations and business law - and around finance. "International laws" per se means international government.

    The Union now has won. All their members lost their jobs as was the union's goal.

    I have little doubt this ultimately is a sweetheart deal with another company with more union employees, for which the union is eliminating that company's competition.

    Well, I think any one of the world powers (namely, the USA) could fit that description.

    We have to if we want to ever join the Federation. We also need warp capabilities.

    I think people are looking at this from a personal lifetime view. It isn't likely to happen in the next few generations, although it is possible. I think it will eventually happen though in the next few centuries. We are working hard, as humans, to make internal social changes rather than forcing people to accept governments through force. There are some groups that are more than willing to try to force their views on others and that might be what happens. But such a government would not likely last long. But if getting different countries to change their views on rights of the people and that the people need to decide for themselves then I can see a large, global government form. It would take a while though. Some countries/regions are not even close to such a change in views.

    And there will always be opposition to a global government, just as there is always some opposition to all forms of government.

    This is sort of narrow minded don't you think? I prefer a pandemic which is more abitrary. The end result is that humans finally reach carrying capacity (1.75 billion) and hopefullly have the good sense to stay there.

    Like I said. Global no continental possibly

    Possibly. But not likely in my lifetime.
