I suspect that one ramification of the current economic crisis is that nations are being forced to work together in ways that we've never seen on a global scale. My hope is that we are being forced to find new ways to work together as partners for the common good. And the same applies to the global threat of terrorism - the people of the world have a common enemy. I'm not a fan of the notion of a world government, but the idea of moving towards a truly global community is in everyone's best interest. We have wasted enough blood and treasure on wars.
