Galbraith on World Parliament

"...the 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."

UN Chronicle, no. 3, 1997.
John Kenneth Galbraith is the Paul M. Warburg Professor of Economics Emeritus at Harvard University.

(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."

Lenin on Parliament

"Criticism--the 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."

V.I. Lenin (Left-wing communism, an infantile disorder, Chapter VII. Should we participate in bourgeois parliaments?)
