I’ve often wondered why so many people who are not part of the ultra rich elite imagine a global government could serve the interests of all the great diversity of peoples and cultures properly.
Even in a city of quarter of a million population, the city authority cannot serve the interests of half the people for half of the time. The larger a unit gets the more likely it is to become a tyranny, either an autocratic or bureaucratic dictatorship. That’s why the EU needs to be wound up and return powers to member states, and if I may suggest it, the US should decentralise and give the states more responsibility for their own affairs.South California (which dominates the state’s politics,) and Oklahoma are never going to have much in common
