Some individuals still believe that a sustainable global society with “freedom and justice for all’ is attainable with an integrated global economy underpinned by the rule of law. And this is our only way to sustainably maximize all of humanities freedom and security.
Some are now suggesting that the arc of history may soon turn back onto a democratic pathway where a majority of humanity champions ‘liberty and justice for all’, and call for a new and accountable global political system that puts the protection of human rights that former generations championed and acknowledged with Universal Declaration of Human Rights, superior to the rights of nations, which is now supreme to anything else. While this future is not likely — it is possible. And it may now be in its birthing stage in the protests sparking up around the world. Could this be a backlash to the nationalism, anti-globalism, and populist politics that the world has been spiraling down into for more than three decades?
