A global political party - which could lobby and create institutions of legitimate global grassroots governance via global political will.
For untold ages humankind has dreamed and foretold of its eventual unification in a dreamlike state of global unity. This age-old dream is becoming a practical and utterly necessary reality as the economic and social issues of our time call for a system of practical global social and political institutions and commons. From Albert Eisenstein to Aristotle they greatest intellectuals among us of realized the need for this alternative to mankind's present anarchic nation-state relations (or city-state for Aristotle).
Why must this remain a theory? It's is common sense to even the illiterate and uneducated among us who too call for global recognition of their rights and freedoms, and their stringent enforcement. What global social issue such as the environment, women’s rights, poverty, disease control, animal rights or those of refugees and nation-less millions (according to UN) can realistically circumvent 180+ government bureaucracies? The need for global governance has never been greater, nor the means to accomplish it easier. Today a global generation exists more familiar culturally and socially to one another across nations than to previous generations. Global youth unemployment and vast economic stagnation and environmental degradation have already forced upon this generation the need to work together intimately, globally, consistently or face a decline into extinction. If humanity cannot unite, then it is not fit to survive, but many know it is fit, it is ready, the 21st century will be defined by the rise of supra-nationalism. Thus as with all social movements before, a political and social party that is neutral non-partisan should rise to advocate, lobby, and create these institutions in a grassroots and truly global manner - a Universal Party.
There has been millenniums of talk on this issue, the time has come for action for change for it's realization by practical day-to-day action.
My question is to your own sensibilities; does this seem a feasible goal?
