This would be near impossible to manifest but it would be a great and mar vales thing. The global amount of money that goes into the research of weaponry and bio-defense is more than anyone can comprehend. After that think of the global manufacturing of weapons and other defense systems. There is so many recourses going in to killing each other. If it was possible to get all countries to create a space program we would be colonizing Mars in no time. But it's not just that each country pays to do research on the same things. If research and manufacturing was done on a global scale the human race would have gotten much further than we are already.

Note the prompt is 'If we could' not 'could we'

I don't think we could, but if we could then why not? a huge government that works for everybody? War would be gone, global inequality and poverty could be seriously confronted.

Plus we could call ourselves "The Federation." That would just be friggin' sweet.

The fact is, As a planet we are in constant struggle. For who is better than whom and for population controll and are for more land. If each country could get its own (habitable) planet than yes, it would be better to have some form of Galactic Government.

Well in theory it could work but it will never because we as human beings hate one another and probably never over come that hatred

Humanity can't even create a global or national government that functions properly, why even consider a larger endeavor we are not capable of doing well on a smaller scale.

we could, but somebody would want more power in the government and then they would destroy the whole system.

Such need would come if we ended up discovering we were not alone when it comes to intelligent species. We would need to represent ourselves amongst the others.

At this time i don't think it's needed, we don't even live harmoniously in earth, such harmony would come if we saw ourselves endangered by an extraterrestrial threat (extraterrestrial threat can be anything that comes from outside earth, just so we are clear) of that im sure.

Long story short: no, not at this time.
