Re: United Earth? No Thanks.

keep in mind that an "abolition of war as an instrument of policy" doesn't have to be equivalent to some utopian "let's all hug each other" pacifism. There's a concept of juridical pacifism, whereby disputes between states could be resolved through international courts. It would be like nations agreeing to something like binding arbitration for the resolution of disputes. With mass communications and international bodies, such an idea isn't as absurd as it might have once seemed.
