Question #12 (the second question #11)

I feel that in 2106, there will be no individual states. There will be one world government. I feel this because, even now the EU is seeking to create one government for all the European states and with institutions like the UN, the World Bank and the IMF, I feel that a world government is not long in coming. Of course African and some Asian countries have problems that will need to be resolved on an organizational and governmental scale before a world government can be created. With that being said, I feel that there will still be an issue of sovereignty in the future because of different groups and factions who will control different areas within the one government. It will be a lot like in Snow Crash where the Burbclaves have their own security system and constitution but a lot more based on commonalities, such as history, race, and common interests. I'm not saying that a global government would be a bad thing, I'm just saying that it could feasibly happen within the next 100 years.
