Beyond Internationalism to Globalism
2014 Sam and Marilyn Fox Atlas Week
Monday, March 31
2:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Busch Student Center 253 B
Sponsored: Department of Theological Studies
Philosophy Professor Ronald Glossop and Theology Professor David Oughton, both board members of Citizens for Global Solutions, will explain the differences between internationalism and globalism. For example, internationalism means making treaties between national governments such as in the present United Nations Organization while globalism means having a world parliament that would create world laws, a world police force that would arrest individuals who violate world laws, and a world court that could prosecute individuals. The need for promoting world citizenship and a universal auxiliary language will be explained. The role of the world's religions for moving from the current international system to a global system will also be emphasized.
