The people and the peoples of the world must find a way to communicate to the holders of public power – the international Hofmafia – their moral outrage at the present state of the human world. It is an outrage made almost unbearable by the complacency of those who operate the international system and the conniving of those who rationalise it, as commentators in public discussion or analysts in an academic context.
Social evil on a national scale is routinely legitimated and enforced through social theory and social practice, including the legal system, of each national society. National systems contrive to make us see social injustice, and socially caused human suffering of every kind, as incidental and pragmatic effects, however much they may violate our most fundamental values and ideals.
For 250 years, a perverted, anti-social, anti-human worldview has allowed the holders of public power to treat social injustice and human suffering on a global scale as if it were beyond human responsibility and beyond the judgement of our most fundamental values and ideals, and the holders of public power have imagined an international legal system which enacts and enforces such a worldview. And the people and the peoples of the world have simply had to acquiesce in and to live with the consequences of this disgraceful perversion of theory and practice.
It would be possible, and it is necessary and urgent, to destroy the old international unsociety and to create the theory and the practice of a true international society, the society of all societies and the society of all human beings, enacting and enforcing a true international law, the legal system of all legal systems, for the survival and prospering of allhumanity.[…]
