"A day will come when the cannon will be a museum piece, and we will be amazed to think that these things ever existed! "

The Project on Abolishing War is a program of the Center for War/Peace Studies, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization headquartered in New York, New York. The director of The Project is Tad Daley, J.D., Ph.D., author of the book APOCALYPSE NEVER: Forging the Path to a Nuclear Weapon-Free World, (Rutgers University Press 2010 and in paperback in 2012). The centerpiece of The Project is Dr. Daley's work on his second book, intended both to introduce a broad general audience to one of history's Great Ideas — that something like a world republic, some distant day, could bring about both the abolition of standing military forces and the abolition of war itself — and to apply that idea to the challenges of the 21st Century.
We will be soon posting a great deal more about The Project and about the history and future of the idea of a world republic.

"Man will never write," they said before the alphabet came and man at last began to write. "Man will never fly," they said before the planes and blimps zoomed and purred in arcs winding their circles around the globe. "Man will never make the United States of the World. No, you are going too far when you talk about one world flag for the great Family of Nations." They say that now.
