When I watch any of the speeches from the president or some other high ranking politician they almost always make remarks on how to advance the U.S.A to a superior status.Only on rare occasion do they mention Global action and advancement for everybody.Everything seems like a competitive race. I was just wondering how long this pattern will be able to continue.Eventually something will disrupt it and the out come could be good like a treaty or pact,or it could be bad like a war. The world needs to organize it self into 1 single entity as fast as possible or it will just keep tugging on the planet in each individual nations way.There are global problems facing the Earth and only global action can fix it. As of right now I cant imagine things really getting better without getting alot worse first.Can anyone here think of a scenario where a global government is set in place with out there being the immediate need for one cause of a bad situation.If so please share. Oh and how long do you think it will be before it happens.
