Example text

These huge, stifling bureaucracies maintain themselves in power not merely by force (including the force of inertia) but also thanks to the vestiges of patriotic legitimacy of which they boast ; and such legitimacy is maintained, or sometimes artificially created, by the myth of encirclement and the fear of war. The years of detente showed that a lessening of external tensions did not ipso facto lead to a relaxation of internal constraints-on the contrary, it initially increased fears of contamination through contact with the outside, and at all events the purely domestic reasons for maintaining the apparatus of repression remain powerful.

The danger is that persistence of the dream of one world and ignoring its threat to freedom leads us in wrong directions and encourages despair. It ignores, furthermore, the threat of unification and homogenization, the consecration of efficiency, and various kinds of leviathan already in motion. The threat comes from the juggernauts of international trade and commerce. ) It rolls inexorably, bringing prosperity and distress. It is a phenomenon not at all easy to discipline, one we cannot and do not really want to arrest.

The trust in formulae, in solutions, induces civil complacency and leads to the torpor of the Orwellian world. It also encourages the predominant cynicism about government which, after World War II replaced the confidence in the magic power of government. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Interdependence is not a slogan for brotherly love ; it is a description of our plight, full of promise and terror. World government simply cannot come about even in the face of nuclear extinction or planetary exhaustion.
