Very controlling and possibly repressive to keep order, but on the plus side, all research and innovation would be fast tracked.

This is honestly a matter of time. The number of dividing factions in the world has been steadily decreasing. From hundreds of countries, city-states, dukedoms, principalities, empires and duchies, we're down to under two hundred countries.

In a hundred or so years time, it's quite possible our governments will finally see the benefit of being united, and organize the world on the principles of secular enlightenment and scientific and liberal progress. That is the only way for our continued, sustainable survival - an universal move forward towards a better tomorrow and a global unity under modern, liberal, progressive values.

Just as unbalanced as modern politics.

With rich and wealthy countries having the most suitable and capable candidates for the most part, and therefore them exercising the most power, and therefore in their personal interests they would try and secure the wellfare of their country/region/area.

At least that's my cynical outlook.

Best regards all!

No idea. Depends on how the government was elected (if at all), what policies it passed & how much power it had. It'd almost certainly have to be federal.
The difference in economies, culture, language, traditions, religion etc means that it'll be a long time before we see a One World Government. It'd take a major event, such as an attack by aliens, to bring one about in our life times.

Unless they fought back, I mean there are 1.3 billion of them versus Trump and his followers

Yes but look at how many Jews Hitler and the Nazis massacred.

Just under two hundred, actually.

It will happen and we will all be a great deal better off for it, wars would be abolished and many, many good and ambitious and wonderful things could be achieved.

Getting there in a way that most people find acceptable and that makes sense, is humane, well run and intelligent, will be difficult, but it is not impossible and if enough of us want it, we can get it.

In theory, fine. Getting there, like said above, will be iffy at best. And certainly not quick.

It also needs prove that it does represent people, cannot be corrupted too badly and is better than what's gone before (LoN, UN, etc {I know they're slightly different, but they'll still get compared}).
