on World Parliament
United Nations role must now be open to major discussion--and
change. The day will come I believe for a legislative oversight
of the world economic and social system, the first step toward
world government. And a tax base--a beginning might well be the
tax on international financial transactions proposed by Professor
James Tobin--the Tobin tax. And more generally and urgently, it
must have responsibility in keeping with the new problems-economic,
financial, cultural--of internationalism, of the modern global
village and the protection of the welfare State....This is not
in the area of fantasy. Rather, it is action to accommodate to
the modern reality. It is what the underlying and controlling
economic and social change has made essential. Let us now begin
the serious discussion."

(Galbraith is said to have since
1997 reconsidered the propriety of the Tobin tax.)

Report on progress for world jury system from
the World Jury Commission:
"In addition to drawing the provisions of these laws within
the context of the Earth Constitution, the adjustment of the Rome
Statute addresses a primary critique of the ICC Statute,
--that is, the House of Peoples version of the statute contains
provisions for jury
process, a basic human right as recognized by civilized
people and governments nearly everywhere."

keenest, most ruthless and uncompromising criticism--must be directed,
not against parliamentarianism or parliamentary activities, but
against those leaders who are unable--and still more against those
who are unwilling--to utilise parliamentary elections and the
parliamentary tribune in a revolutionary, Communist manner."
