world government. admirable or abhorrent, the words invoke passion. as radical as the proposition may be, world government is a matter of discussion both in private and public sectors just as it has been over the span of decades if not centuries. but what is world government and what does it mean? is it the eventuality of civilization and the answer to all of humankind's ills? is it for that matter even feasible? what say you? since the dawn of civilization, the world has been progressing to a world government. such organization is the reality of systems. demonstrated in the evolution of the universe, the evolution of life and the evolution of civilization. simulated in cellular automata such as "the game of life." in each case simple systems coalesce into evermore advance systems this phenomenon has yet to cease if ever it should at all. in terms of government the nation state is not so suddenly a thing of the past as they too have began to coalesce into super-states ie. the european union and african union. and of course there are the united nations, world bank, world trade organization, world health organization, international monetary fund, north atlantic treaty organization, north american free trade agreement, central american free trade agreement, free trade area of the americas ect. ect. so on and so forth. again, is world government the eventuality of civilization and is this a good thing or not so good thing?
