dc.description.abstract From earliest days of formation to Homo sapiens this species had been known to have resorted to violent conflict between individuals, groups, tribes and later between states. The last phase had caused the highest volume of destruction as human casualties and the destruction of an environment order. Despite, the valuable effort taken by the United Nations, the human conflict stands at a highly explosive level mainly due to the never ending issues. There are two other more potentially dangerous threats. Several nations are in the possession of nuclear and chemical weapons and attempts by the UN and other non- governmental organizations such as the Pugwash Conference have not achieved much success on nuclear non-proliferation as well as to minimize threats from an extended chemical warfare. Second danger could be the danger of extension of conflict to the newly discovered arena of outer space. Needless to say the vast majority of people are tired of these endless brutal killings and massive destructions. Will there be peace at least among nations? In this connection, there are certain views to justify the need for a world government in order to last world peace and order at the most. For instance, there is the liberalist approch which is primitively stood the possibility of the world government. Further, their views on world government is to be associated in particular with those idealists who believe that peace can never be achieved in a world divided into separate sovereign states. (Dunne, 2001). It is this question which is particularly examined from a perspective of the wisdom of some philosophers and intellectuals. These include Arnold Toynbee, Bertrand Russell, Arthur C. Clarke and an entirely different personality, John Lennon the famous musician of the Beatles. en_US
