About this product
- DescriptionThe international political system, built on a foundation of sovereign states, has t effectively addressed age-old quandaries of war, crime, poverty, oppression, corruption, and environmental degradation. Modern social and techlogical trends are further stressing this system to the breaking point. Global Government Under the U.S. Constitution examines this failing system and proposes an entirely new approach. Instead of an international system built on sovereign nation-states, this work argues that federal democracy provides a better, proven model for global governance. While such an idea may linger from time to time in the background of thought, it has never moved to the forefront because of the difficulty in imagining how it could be realized. Now, however, this book thrusts forward a concrete method, arguing that the U.S. Constitution establishes a sound system for large-scale governance. This federal democracy should naturally extend globally, to address current international social problems. It did so first among thirteen colonies and later across a continent and beyond. Global Government Under the U.S. Constitution also explains specific legal means to effect such an idea, making it a fascinating read for officials, academics, leaders and students alike.
