What unites us is greater than what divides
Garry Davis, the self-styled "World Citizen No 1" left Naples, Italy for America yesterday-with only 5s 3d in his pocket. He announced that he had abandoned his ten-year struggle to tear down national boundaries and create a world federation of States.
To my surprise- the newspaper cutting is from 1959- Mr Davis is still alive, still campaigning and active on the internet. Or at least he was in 2004, campaigning for erm..."World President" . His campaign message contains the sentence: 'I will consider myself “elected” after receiving votes from 1% of the
world’s population, that is 50 million citizens.'
