    On these questions, I recommend the book “Haves Without Have-Nots” by Mortimer J. Adler. Adler argues that a peaceful world will only be possible with the subordination of the nation-state to a confederated world government. Another consideration is the very size of some nation-states with population and resources that enable that nation-state to impose its will by threat or actual use of military force.
