Why are you a world federalist?
I am a world federalist because I believe that democratic world federation with enforceable world law offers a solution to global problems.
What is the future you are working towards?
I decided to dedicate my retirement to promoting democratic world federation with enforceable world law offers a solution to the threat of nuclear war, a way to save our fragile planet and better address global pandemics, and a path to protect universal human rights.
