Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1001 to 1500
~ Idea 1191 ~ 14 October 1997
The notion of a world government is decried by nationalists. They claim that it would lead to world dictatorship. Well, the same applies to national government. If the concept is rejected for humanity and for the Earth, the same should apply to national and all other levels of government. Let us see what the world would be if national governments, state and provincial and local governments would disappear. It would be an incredible disaster. How would these societies function without laws for implementation, without common services financed by taxation? Well, the same problem poses itself now pressingly to the entire humanity and Earth which find themselves in a chaotic state of non-government that imperils our future generations and survival.

WORD FOR THE DAY
In an age where there is much talk
about "being yourself,"
I reserve to myself the right to
forget about being myself,
since in any case there is very
little chance of my being anybody else.
"Day of a Stranger," Thomas Merton Reader, p. 431
