Nature does not even favor a "one world order." Nature is set up for competition. That doesnt mean the competition should be rigged so the losers of the last round always lose, and that the winners of the last round make the rules for the next round. Nature doesnt allow that either. But natures requires competition in order that adaptation and change and evolution can occur.
Just because what we are doing now is unfair, and causes enormous injustice, does not mean the idea of competing groups themselves is a bad idea. Thats the way things are at every single level in the biosphere, and nature has had billions of years to try different models. Its telling that competition is the one dominant strategy that works.
If we cannot make smaller nation states work in such a way that the needs and will of the people is done, there is absolutely no way we should move to a more complicated, more dangerous level of integration before we master this level.
