The First Global Revolution

"It would seem that humans need a common motivation, namely a common adversary, to organize and act together in the vacuum; such a motivation must be found to bring the divided nations together to face an outside enemy, either a real one or else one invented for the purpose....The common enemy of humanity is man....democracy is no longer well suited for the tasks ahead."

- King, Alexander & Russell, Bertrand; The First Global Revolution (The Club of Rome), 1993
