Will sometime in the future, the human race would see itself as one nationality?

At the distent past people saw themself as part of a tribe, then as a city state and so on societies conjoined. But the problom is that everytime it happend it was due to external power. Either a strong conqueror absored them, or they united to fight him.

This is why, to my belief, only a successful alien invasion will unite the human race. Because after a failed one we are too likely to go back to fighting each other. Irregardless to this very unlikley scenerio, Is sometime in the future, the human race will see itself as one nationality?
