Imagine

So call me a dreamer! Someday a world government, a world religion, a world language. The end of wars and miseries.The death of disease. The prophet Isaiah (circa 800-700 BC)  paints a vista of the great peace: “…and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.” Socrates (circa 469-399 BC)  declared: “I am not Athenian nor Greek, but a citizen of the world.”(http://bahaiblog.net/site/2013/11/10/the-birth-of-bahaullah-and-the-spirit-of-the-age/). The fusion of all nations, classes, races and creeds. The Bahai ideal of the Most Great Peace..

Nation states were created through violence and coercion.http://www.globalethicsnetwork.org/profiles/blogs/thought-leader-thomas-pogge talks about the difficulties of creating global peace, about a supranational global order, global justice and global ethics.

Pogge recommends a global resource dividend to be paid by all nations to tackle problems  such as  gross poverty
