Learning to live in a technological society. II. Toward a world community

Brown, Harrison
October 1979
Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;Oct1979, Vol. 35 Issue 8, p23
The article presents a discussion on how world community can help in solving the problem of resource depletion and deficiency. From a resource point of view, the world as a whole is basically self-sufficient. But it has been divided into national boundaries out of which only few have adequate resources. Thus, flow of raw materials, manufactured goods, food, money and even people is impeded by national boundaries. They necessitate the diversion of valuable materials and human resources into military efforts by increasing the likelihood of war. This implies that human progress is impeded by nationalism.
