Imagine, for just a moment, a sustainable, peaceful, and well-governed world. Envision, if you will, the expansion of the rule of law to a planetary scale—even in your lifetime. In this talk by two experts on the spiritual and religious dimensions of global governance, learn how a thriving world can be created through a very practical plan: creating a compassionate world community that is governed by all the world’s people according to universal human values. You may say that we are dreamers, but we believe this goal is far more practical than the current world system of sovereign nations led by a weak United Nations that is inept at handling deadly pandemics, preventing climate catastrophe, and stopping the scourge of war. Let’s stop cowering in despair in the face of possible environmental collapse and so much gross injustice around the world. Instead, learn to enjoy the blessing of a life of deeper meaning by joining in the historic effort to create the just government of all humankind, guided by a federal world constitution, and featuring a separation of powers, a global legislature, and world courts to adjudicate disputes among among nations. Imagine creating such a democratically governed world by 2045.
