I despair at influencing others in my old age. However: the World Government would be broadly democratic and republican. One person one vote. An elected President (popular vote with no nonsense like electoral college). The old national governments would continue bu with decreased powers (particularly losing the power to make war and to restrict trade). They would have local police forces; but the World Government would retain all heavy forces. It would probably come about as an outgrowth of the UN. Its major missions would be 1. To end war. 2. To produce an acceptable standard of living to all parts of the world (by taxing, transferring wealth, reducing population of poor people (voluntarily, by paying poor people well to be sterilized). 3. Standardizing minimal education. 4. Reducing global warming.
5. Defense against asteroid strikes. 6. Development of interstellar travel.
What's on your mind...

I don't know who that Ted is? Is it a real person or just a code word?
