Excerpt

The world is in trouble, at the national and international level; of that there can be no doubt. A true federal system based on liberal representative democracy is still the most viable solution to the challenges facing the world currently, even though problems exist within such systems. Here, using the history of the United States and later the history of the European Union, an attempt will be made to identify the problems with such systems and their potential solutions, and to outline a way that such a federal system based on liberal representative democracy can be implemented worldwide for the benefit of the greatest part of the populace.

This volume begins with the adoption of the assumptions that were set forth in Volume 1:

First, the assumption that a world union will be established on the basis of the tenets of representative democracy, using the US Constitution as a guide;

Second, that all member nations will either be representative democracies or convert to the use of representative democracy within a reasonable time after joining the world union;

Third, any nation choosing not to join the world union will find its isolation from the union unsustainable and seek to join the union within a short period of time . . .
