We need an enemy. We need patriotism. We need illusions.
Borders/Factions/Countries/Differing Gov. all contribute to those in power.
Way I see it, borders/governments are an illusion for patriotism.

Here's a question.
Would a one-world government work and why or why not?
Keep in mind, I'm not advocating the "NWO" or saying the type of society where we live without rights and freedoms is acceptable, nor do I think the elite should be the ones making all the decisions, but honestly.
What if Earth united? What if we were able to set our major differences aside and start working toward the betterment of human kind? Is it possible? What about one currency?
Please help me out on this.

I think it would work but the motivation would be hard to come by. I do not believe that fighting aliens would bring us together as one world. People would fight over the spoils of the war. What we need instead is extra terrestials to come and show us the path. They would show us the wondeful possibilities ahead for us, but would also make us see that to attain them we will have to unite as one and see eeveryone else as an equal. That's when you would see the purge, as uncooperatives would have to be removed from society. It won't be until we work as a one united world that we will be able to achieve what we are truly capable of.
