When you hear the term 'World Government', how does it make you feel? Afraid, hopeful, neutral? Well, for many people around the world there is no greater threat, no event more to be avoided, than the spectre of world government or a planet of global democracy where all were equal participants in choosing a government that quite literally represented the interests of everyone. In today's episode we speak with long-time international peace and security and human rights advocate and analyst Frederick John Packer who is the Neuberger-Jesin Professor of International Conflict Resolution at the Faculty of Law of the University of Ottawa in Canada. In this conversation John and Scott delve deeply into the many real (and not so real)hurdles in place that will need to be overcome if the quest for a unified global polity is to ever come to fruition. Taped during the height of the Black Lives Matter demonstrations across the world, Episode 23 asks whether now is the time for all of us to no longer accept things as they are and begin to jointly venture to build the much brighter future all of us know in our hearts is possible. In so doing, all of us can bring Planet Love just one step closer.
