Objections to World Government

Davis, Elmer
November 1954
New Republic;11/22/54, Vol. 131 Issue 21, p80
This article presents the need for the formation of a world government. A world government would have to be a coalition government, in which the Russians and their acolytes would have a large share. There is no reason to suppose they would behave differently in a world government from the way Communists have behaved in every national coalition government, or for that matter in every labor-union coalition government. This policy is open to objections, too. It offers no hope for the liberation of the peoples now enslaved by the Kremlin--unless the Russian empire should fall apart from its own internal contradictions, which is possible but not at all probable.
