I am an advocate for world peace through a single, globally inclusive democracy.
I believe we must adopt this as our goal, and that we can achieve it within our lifetimes. It is simply the best design for human society.
We Americans need an inspirational goal, a guiding star to work toward that is more enduring than the next election, more just than preserving our privileged status, more positive than preventing the next crisis or correcting the latest injustice, and more ambitious than spending our money wisely. We need a higher goal that can keep us headed in the right direction, one that will inspire us enough to insist on reaching it.
On this site, I will express why I think a single, globally inclusive democracy is that goal, and make the case for it.
As a practical matter, international borders are standing in the way of humanity responding effectively to the greatest challenges we face, ranging from climate change to human trafficking to financial crimes and economic inequality. It’s time we eliminated them, and created something dramatically better.
The United States of America is a useful model. What I propose is, essentially, a United States of the World. A single, globally inclusive democracy.
I invite your comments and humbly ask for your support in developing and advancing this vision.
