The easiest way to get it done is to wipe out a large percentage of the population and start over. Sure all the the other ideas are decent, but human nature is diverse and many, like the stars in the sky. To be able to bind them all to a unity would take something spectacular. If a large amount of the population was gone, oh lets say 95%, and give the 5% all the accumulated knowledge wisdom and power, they would have a better chance of uniting and the ability of being able to start over knowing what to do and guiding the remainder of humanity down a glorious path. Kinda got the idea from the Foundation series by Asimov. Psychohistory, fantastic stuff really.
Or something less bleak. You know there's been points in human history, when something was discovered or created that gave us a boost, like fire the wheel alphabet paper. Sometimes, something would give a nation or a group of people a golden period where the culture grew at a massive rate that generated wealth science and art. It happened to the Greeks after Persia declared war on them. Happened to Rome. Heck, happened in America right after WWII and now the Chinese are going on one due to the Olympics. What needs to happen is a discovery or an event that will give all of us, as a race, a golden era, a time when humanity as a whole just grows exponentially.
The way I see it, our species is relatively young compared to the rest of the universe. As a race we are still childish. I think it has to do with our lifespan. An individual only lives what, 50-60 years? WTH is that?? It's to freaken short so we act rashly and make really stupid decisions. We as a race just needs to grow up. That's really it. Grow up.
