At the conclusion of the meeting, with a debate,
that was held in the French Senate, on the subject of
National Sovereignty, the Permanent Mundialist Committee,
which regroups twenty associations among which the World
Citizens and the World Federalists, has published the
following proposition :
THE FALKLANDS : WORLD
The war in the Falklands shows to what excesses
promoting the mythology of the Nation can lead, as does
the belief in the Absolute Sovereignty of the States that
divide the world.
"Nationalism" said Einstein, "is a childhood disease,
it is the measles of humankind". When will the peoples of
the world become grown ups ? When will they refuse the
risk of triggering a war when national self-esteem is at
Nowadays, the situation is that no juridical
institution has the power of implementing the
"International Law", that is, in that case, the
Resolution of the United Nations : the guns alone, today,
take the place of International Law.
To palliate this situation, Mundialists suggest that
the Falkland Islands become World Territory, placed under
the guardianship of United Nations with the protection of
the blue Helmets.
In the same way, other trouble-spots of the globe
could, also, ask for the effective implementation of that
world arbitration force. Little by little, the present
chaos of Nation States would make way for a world
political administrative power which would make it
possible for World Federal Laws to rule in all the places
where they would appear necessary to avoid humankind
reach the point of self-destruction.
