Benefits of Global Government

Humanity's productivity and ability to reach far and wide to embrace people from other cultures and distant places demonstrates an escalating inclusiveness of humanity as one family, and with all its diversity establishing universal norms and practices accommodating such diversity while augmenting assurances of just and fair intercourse around the world.  Such efforts, at best, are what have unified geographic tribes into nations, nations into federations, and federations into a unified planet.  We are at the threshold of unifying the planet, as the vicious parasitics of one nation over another are addressed with more ethical more's and practices.

Many people say that different national interests are the only hurdle in the formation of a world government.  In my opinion this is not the only obstruction; rather, this is just a minor difficulty.  The real cause lies in the fear of local leaders losing their leadership.  With the establishment of a world government the powerful influence, which they enjoy today in different countries, societies and in national life, will no longer exist.
Different national interests and popular skepticism may hinder the formation of a world government.  The progress of this work must be carried on step by step to remove the baseless fears in people's minds.  Besides, due consideration will have to be given to removing any possible obstacles to the formation of a world government.  The world government has to be strengthened step by step and not suddenly.
For example, two houses may be formed for an unspecified period for administration.  The lower house will comprise representatives from parts of the world elected on the basis of population, while members of the upper house will be elected country wise.  By this arrangement those countries which cannot send a single representative to the lower house due to their small population, will benefit by expressing their opinions before the people of the world by sending their representatives to the upper house.  The upper house cannot adopt any resolution unless the lower house has ratified it, but it will enjoy the privilege of disallowing the decisions of the lower house.
In the first stage this world government may act only as a law framing body.  The world government will be vested with framing the rights of implementation or non-implementation of any particular law in any particular region.  In the beginning when the world government is being established, the government of different countries will have only administrative power.  As they will not have any power to enact any laws arbitrarily; it will not be easy for any government to inflict atrocities on its linguistic, religious, or political minorities according to the whims of the governing majority.  
Political Democracy can and will be fortuitous
