We know that something is wrong with the world. We can hear the explosions of sophisticated missiles and home made bombs, the impact of stones on tanks, orders to open fire, automatic rifle fire, the whine of bullets, bodies hitting the ground, cries of pain, the gnashing of teeth, the weeping of mothers. Of course we have a problem. What can we do? Nor do we believe that the solution is in our hands, although we know that someone must do something urgently. The problem gives rise to anguish and despair due to our own impotence.
What can we do? Probably we need an entire new world order.
Jaspers, in 1950, raised the problem of unstoppable globalisation, and saw that it was necessary to have a world order to control this. This involves two alternatives: The world empire, under a single power which imposes a forced peace on the uniform masses or the world order, which integrates a variety of countries without violence, as the result of a common decision, freely assumed as the result of a negotiating process.
The international relations have developed prevailing the law of the strongest. The result is the Empire.
The author analyzes the present American Empire and he compares it with the international relations within the European Union, but
What is the European Union?
Why have a European Union?
What is the European Union for?
On examining the identity, reason and mission of the European Union this book contributes to eliminating the ideological deficit, which is still argued and underlies the difficulties involved in approving the Constitution.
Also the Islamic fundamentalism is analyzed, explaining its ideology.
Finally, the author proposes a model to harmonize the international relations in a globalised world and to assure peace. We find that human beings have gone from “being in several confined juxtaposed worlds” to “being in a single, open, shared world”, in which “living” has been transformed into “co-living”. How can nations coexist in peace throughout the XXI century?http://www.authorhouse.com/BookStore/ItemDetail.aspx?bookid=46986
