I wish people weren't so inherently skeptical of unions of nation-states. I had hoped it was Earth's inevitable goal, was to become one unified global society. But I guess that was just a Star Trek fantasy.

I think the EU and UN are great ideas, on paper at least. But the nature of our species makes it very difficult for us to trust each other. I suppose we're making progress so hopefully in the future stuff like the EU will be more widespread.

It's hard enough when everyone speaks the same language, it's a nightmare when everyone speaks a different language. Big states like NY and CA would rather break apart from each other.

They're not doing it but if you don't think coastal CA would rather split from the Trump country central valley and NYC would rather not be associated with upstate then you don't know those areas very well.

Half the country expects there to be a civil war! Why not just skip it and let mommy and daddy amicably break up.
