Description

Is the world ready for world government? This book presents a restrained yet powerful argument for a supernational federation tentatively designated the 'Federal Union of Democratic Nations.' The author argues that as worldwide human civilization approaches the third millennium A.D., the ideological, economic, and nationalistic barriers to supernational political unity are weakening and a legitimate state entity, beyond the United Nations today, is a realistic possibility. It would hold the power to tax, to maintain military forces and house elected legislative and executive branches in a capital city. Contents: A New Perspective on International Organization; A Proposal for Supernational Federation; Prospects for Ideological Harmonization; Prospects for Economic Equalization; State and World State; Summary and Conclusion; References; Index.
