A world parliament as part of a federation of the earth. “How can we the people better influence global affairs?” One route to enhance global justice and therefore peace is to enlarge representation for the interests of the mass of humanity. The democratic deficit in the United Nations has created a gap between the system that we have and the world that most people want. Visionaries have dreamed of an elected world parliament that expresses the will of the earth’s inhabitants. An earth federation may indeed be functioning by fifty years from now. Within that structure, an elected world parliament could be able to enact enforceable world law. However, to get all the way there from current political realities may take quite a while.
