One World! One Language!

Someone decided that computers should have a simple language, one that has conly two letters, 0 and 1. and now, no matter what computer, device we're using we know for a fact that with little practice we'll understand what its saying.
sadly due to the way humans came into existance this wasn't possible (imagine what that would be like?) 010010010100111101010101 instead of "hi, wanna grab a coffee"
should there be one language?
should this one language be on a district / state / national / world leve?
can we rely on technology like we see in star trek, etc. to understand anyone irrespective of their language? is it practical?
Is language the cause of some problems that we face today, political and otherwise?

Question asked quite a while..back..i see...

I think, language by itself is never a problem. It's the thought and the expression that is!

I can vouch for this, since I see the Japanese smile whether I say Konicheewah or Hello !

It, would be a problem of course if I brought up war/religion/patriotism

there are certain things everyone understands! greetings being one of them. but true communication. the coffee shop chat about say, the attack of US on Iraq or who the latest good looking girl/guy is (ok maybe that everyone'll understand) but u get the point.

real conversations are important and a must for most humans. without this we'll all go insane.
