In college you could have a professor that was terrible and EVERYONE told the dean he was terrible but even then they didn't do anything about it.

Because professors are there to do research and bring in grant money for the university. They are not hired nor are they evaluated on their teaching skills. Tenure is determined by funding.

there are a lot of people who won't give up their national sovereignty to a world government (even if it's a democratic one).

Sounds good until you get to the details. What does a democratic world government look like? Each nation gets one vote = North and South America are fucked. Each human gets one vote = China tells everyone what to do.

Don't panic.
