I'm completely against any world government, however I am curious how you think it would work.
What areas would this world government you envision have authority over, and how would this authority be enforced?
Would nations be able to succeed without repercussion? The US would not even be whole anymore without militarily forcing its members to stay.

Flinx, I totaly agree with you.
I think that EU should serve as a model to create similar unions in other parts of the world, like middle east, south east asia, south america, etc, etc. Countries would still keep their sovereignty, but also be a part of a union largely based on economy, trade, exchange of information, same currency, basicaly what the EU has.
When all those unions are formed, they could form some kind of council with representatives of all unions, to be the governing body of Earth.
There would be a set of agreed upon laws that everyone would have to follow
This may all seem far fetched, but wait until some tremendous worldwide disaster happens (massive plague, alien invasion, asteroid hit, etc.). You'll see a one-world government faster than you can blink!
But if you look at the average person.. they are not like this. I believe it is the "system" which changes the nature of the person.. bringing out the savage and warlike ways of the human.

Democracy on a world wide scale with every nation having a equal say Im telling you nothing would ever get done in a system like that. Every nation will try to look out for themselves like they do now.
