9781517623135: Worldian: (And Other Writings)

It’s time to stop war and misery...but to do so, we need to eliminate two forces that work to hold humanity in their grip: sovereignty and religion.

In Worldian, international law firm partner Thomas G. Maira proposes eliminating these two factors in favor of a one world governmental system without sovereign countries, political parties, or religious zealotry. In Maira’s one new world, executive committees and counsels oversee a global democratic system with no single individual holding the reins.

With nationalist jingoism a thing of the past and religious dogma no longer a corrupting influence, Maira foresees a world capable of eliminating war, oppression, and poverty—a world which, while not ideal, comes closer than at any point in human history.

The author expounds on his theory through a series of provocative essays that deal with commonalities of human experience and motivations—and how these universal traits apply to his vision for the future. While dealing with serious, potentially species-saving issues, he manages to maintain a cutting and sometimes self-deprecating sense of humor.

Read Worldian. Contemplate it. It just may change everything you think you know about how humanity should live, govern itself, and survive into the next millennia.
