IMO the only being fit to rule over us would be a form of artificial intelligence, devoid of emotions (artificial or not)..it would rule simply through cold hard logic. Our biggest problem however would be if for instance it chose to rid the planet of us to save itself or the planet itself by reasoning that we are the greatest threat of all.

The further away a government gets from the governed, both geographically and mentally, the worse off the governed will be. Government works best at the closest possible location to the governed (even though most of the time it still sucks). This way the people's immediate needs are (supposedly) met.
How can you expect some idiot in another country to understand the local needs of a population? They THINK they can, but they CAN'T. They WANT to control you for the sheer power, but they CAN'T address your concerns. You will be forgotten.
ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT IS SOMETHING WE MUST AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
Ron Paul understands these concepts, and has warned us repeatedly of the consequences. All you have to do is listen and GET IT. There are no benefits whatsoever to a one world government, only detriment. The local needs of the people are barely, and rarely, addressed as it is now. How do you think they would fare under some far removed world government who gives no crap at all?
VERY, VERY BAD IDEA.

My own view observing the pressures for formation of a world gov doesn't really have much to do with bringing order to places like Africa and Middle east, I mean those places have always been in fighting its just that now with social media we get to see it every day. My view is the push is on because behind the scenes has been discovered an energy source and new area of science which literally could transform everything, from the transport we use to how we see our origins and fitting into this cosmos.
This energy source used wrongly however also has the ability to wreak incredible destruction. The world gov therefore is the control system required to roll out this technology, as it provides a safe forum where it can be controlled at all levels, without hinderence of borders or radical groups as those things wont be allowed to exist under a world gov.

Because here on earth anytime there is a single power of any kind that controls more than just itself it leads to tyranny, despotism and brutality on a massive scale.

The way I see it is a one world government would be a good idea for those in control of it and the friends of those in control , look at the corruption rife in countries now and multiply it several fold , I see no real benefit for the ordinary person.

ONE world government would mean the collapse of different systems, there would not be "capitalism" or "communism" or "socialism" anymore, means nations don't need to spend TRILLIONS on DEFENSE to defend against the lie there is "another system which is threatening our system".
DO YOU REALIZE that on this planet you cannot even go somewhere else if you want to, because there are borders and "different nations"? You cannot even fricking ENTER another country without "permission" and papers, let alone live there because you would just like to.
You don't think this is odd there are artificial borders which make it literally impossible to just travel and go to, say, South America, the US, Europe, Australia..just like that? You don't think this is odd that this is impossible respective requires major efforts?

We could see this new form of global authority as a tool to better the world. Just like a Federal Government sees the wealth is equally distributed between the states or provinces that form a country, a OWG could seek to do the same globally. Erase borders, end racism, xenophobia, territorial disputes, etc.
PS. Sorry for any grammar mistakes, not a native speaker.

No need to apologize for grammar! You're writing is great!
If I go out and pick apples all day, and pick 50 apples, why should my lazy neighbor who only picked 10 apples get the same as me?
Now extrapolate that to countries.
Sorry. Global socialism is not the answer.... unless the question is, "What can we do to totally F*#( up the world?"
