A Deterrent to Save the World

Author Name: Prof. Dr. D. Swaminadhan | Format: Paperback | Genre : History & Politics | Other Details

The precarious situation of Planet Earth due to the dangers of nuclear, biological, chemical weapons of mass destruction; environmental degradation leading to global warming; the man-made deadly viruses, apart from natural disasters and the cyber crimes; and the influence of social media on the elections of other countries are causing serious concerns. While the horrifying reminiscence of the World Wars is still haunting, the threat of the Third World War is already hanging as the ‘Damocles Sword’. The holocaust created by the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki should not be repeated. Unless serious measures are not undertaken immediately, it is sure that the destruction of life on Planet Earth may not be far off.

The present conflicts like the Russia-Ukraine war and such problems elsewhere on the globe are signalling the potential for a world war. The regional conflicts are threatening world peace and security. The dysfunctions and failings of today's international order, including the UN, are evident.

Now we have to find ways to prevent the present regional conflicts from blowing up into a World War situation. Using the existing mechanisms like the UN and through discussions and negotiations, we should try to find solutions. However, success is not assured.

In parallel, we have to initiate steps to put in place a permanent democratic and federal system of world government within a reasonable period. The author has presented a proposal for establishing a democratic and federal system of world government to be funded by all the countries. This book aims to provide a future deterrent for world wars and world peace and security.
