Talk: Do we need global democracy?

The latest of our Joy in Enough talks features a debate with Mark Dick, a GP, author and advocate of global democracy. He writes:

“Why the need for a World Parliament? Because it is time to represent all of humanity in decision making. Presently we, the peoples, have no say at a global level.”

“Central decision makers must be held accountable” says Mark. “A world parliament would aid the development of a planetary consciousness, and ideological voting blocks would form to discuss shared ideas and eventually global political parties would emerge, to have open discussion on globalisation, climate change etc. A practical idea? Visionary? Not workable? Could a kind of global citizens assembly ever be workable?”

Watch the debate and let us know what you think!
