I think the only way everyone on this planet can unite together is when the whole world is in danger by an outside threat.

Like, a 6 mile long asteroid or maybe "if" it ever happens extraterrestrial threat that can really effect everyone. May sound sci-fi but i am thinking out side the box. What is our* opinion?

It would only work until the crisis was over, then back to quibbling. Similar to what we see during and after a World War except for the two way split seen during world war.

That would be ideal , but knowing the way the world works everybody world probably argue about what would be the correct way to destroy it and more focused on getting all the glory and being in the limelight .

Sure, but the unity would last for about 12 hours. Then the arguments...which last forever.

World unity goes against capitalism and nationalism. Until as much profit can be made working together as is made killing one another, it will never happen.

I agree on against capitalism, but it has nothing to do with nationalism. Nationalism is just a defence of the traditions, and human conditions of a nation, a nationalist has no desire to expension or domination on other countries. So it is the perfect enemy of capitalism and communism.

The question is more, why do you want everyone to be unite together? and what is the goal for that? A whole world country doesn'T means the arrest of wars and suffering of people, It just means that you will have a unique culture all around the globe, so no more diversity, the paradise for the multinationals, but the nightmare for our human condition, the lost of all roots, so the link with the humans before you.

I seriously doubt even then would the whole world unite. Some will want to destroy it while others will tell you it is some deity's will and we shouldn't interfere.

If aliens came to earth it would be convenient if there only weakness was lead. As for the asteroid that means were pretty much screwed.
