Global Democracy. Torbjorn Tannsjo


Is world government the answer to pressing global issues such as war, global injustices and environmental problems? Torbjorn Tannsjo presents the case for this idea. The notion of a sovereign world government has been defended in the past by philosophers such as Bertrand Russell and A.C. Ewing, but has been eclipsed by less radical ideas to do with peaceful cooperation between sovereign states or, at most, through systems of shared sovereignty. Tannsjo argues that such solutions cannot be effective; moreover he argues, in response to philosophers such as Kant and Rawls, that not only is a world government necessary if we want to solve pressing global problems, it is desirable in its own right.

    European Union is an example of how difficult it can be establishing one government of a group of culturally close nations.  It would be more difficult for the whole world with many distinct cultures.

    Also  powerful nations,,USA,Russia and China most likely would not agree to follow decisions of a world government.

    A realistic alternative would be empowering United Nations to deal with global  issues and providing UN  with funds for implementing solutions.

    Europeans want to lecture others on democracy and build new worlds although they have nothing to say in the world of today and no one wants the global government or anything global anywhere else outside Europe.

    the UN should be dissolved. The global compact on migration show us how very distant from reality and potentially dangerous are the decisions of those chosen people…
