(4) Amend the constitution upon a two-thirds approval
of the convention.
Each federal convention is to be divided into nine electoral colleges, according to the nine societies of kindred
nations and cultures, or regions, wherefrom its members
are declared to derive their powers, such regions being:
Europa, Atlantis (including the United States of America),
Eurasia, Africa, Afrasia, India, Asia Major, Austrasia, and
The legal machinery provides for the election of a president serving a single, fixed term of six years. Councilmen
are to be elected, with the United Nations Assembly as the
The world republic is to choose a site for a federal capital, adopt one language, a federal unit of currency, a federal system of measures, and a federal calendar. The
underlying "rights of man" are enumerated, the right of
private property being omitted from this category.
The executive power, together with initiating power in
federal legislation, is to be vested in the World President.
He is also to serve as World Chief Justice of the Grand
Tribunal. He is to serve as chairman of the Chamber of
Guardians, having control and use of the armed forces of
the federal republic. He is to make a triennial budget of
the world government.
The Federal Republic of the World would be "indivisible and one," and vested with the organization and disposal of federal armed forces; the limitation and control of
weapons and of domestic police forces; the levying and
collecting of federal taxes; the administration of banks,
issuance of money, control of credit; control of immigration and emigration and the movements of peoples; the
final decisions of forming new states and the alteration
boundaries; the maintenance of peace; the intervention
violations of law; the establishment of agencies conduci
to development of the world's resources and the advani
ment of physical and intellectual standards; regulation
commerce, transportation, and communication; legislate

Under the proposed constitution, what is to become c
the three outstanding world legal systems extant — U
Anglican, Romanesque, and Mohammedan; or the Jap>
nese, Chinese, and Hindu, which last three govern imp"1
tant sectors in the Far East? These dissident systems cal
not be welded into one. Neither can they be ignored, v?i"
any hope of lasting world peace. A world system of g<"
ernment, to succeed, must be predicated on practical pr"
ciples of law or force.
Here, then, in a single legal package, we have submiW
a world government, calling for surrender of national so*
ereignty, inauguration of socialism or communism, cnta"
ing the loss of control of foreign relations, the removal'
the "veto" power reserved under the UN Charter, W
imposition of the obnoxious features of the Declaration0
Human Rights and the Genocide Convention, the remo*1
of tariff and immigration barriers, the establishment of
new monetary system, free trade, governmental control <
public utilities and resources, the imposition of a foreij
judiciary, the abnegation of the American system of 1»*
the loss of private property, the rape of national resourrf
and the infliction of burdensome taxation to prom1'
socialistic doctrines — a program wherein, if adopted, "j
United States, Constitution and all, would be absorbed'
the maw of internationalism.
Moreover, the proponents of this novel plan bokj
assert, "World government shall come — this is practical
the consensus of this generation — whether within ""
years or fifty, whether without a conflagration or after
The plan quickens, to an unpredictable extent, the hi5'0'
ical process of which it is a forerunner."
It is worthy of careful consideration that all the pi*
for one-world government curtail voluntary withdrtj
by a given state or nation. They would grant world c'
zenship to all individuals. Control of armaments "
nuclear power is cached in the world agency. The natfefj
judiciary is tampered with, shearing the jurisdiction of
tribunals and system of jurisprudence. The scales of I
peculiar govenunent&Ticheme, through checks and b*
ances, are thrown out of equilibrium. All the plans seel'
commandeer hue. '

We also were assured and believed that
the original wording of this proposed
amendment would provide a warning
against further federal encroachment on
the powers reserved to the states and the
people, respectively, which reservations
have heen our chief — though sometimes
breached — defenses against the dictator-
ship ol a centralized bureaucracy. . . .
We remember that a resolution acceptable to the President was adopted hy the
Senate two years ago. We also remember
that we were then told that the wording
of that resolution was inadequate. The
wording involved was: "A provision of a
treaty or other international agreement
which conflicts with tin's Constitution shall
not be of any force or effect."
MOW, We are a ski (I to give our support
to a resolution that, except for "three little
words." is the same resolution we Were
told was inadequate two years ago.
Because of our long association we have
tried to find in this new wording the I1^
