I doubt human beings are going to be able to forgo all their petty territorial disputes to unify under one government, but a global coalition - the United Nations seems to be an example of this - does seem possible.I am not a fan of the EU. While it may have advantages, it seems to become more bureaucratic and convoluted with each passing day. This coupled with the fact that certain states have a more power than others (I'm looking at you France and Germany) means that it isn't really an accurate representation of all the people, and if a global government is one thing, it should be that.Collaboration between nations? Sure. But a single government? I would oppose that.

Hence, I would be shut down and excluded from the global community. In other words, I would have no say whatsoever in the matter because the government would have ultimate and final decision.
