International community consists of about 200 sovereign states, and has not obtained good enough results of international cooperation to solve global issues as human rights, environment, security and others, in the cause of block of stateÅfs sovereignty and national interests.
Present International Organizations such as UN and ICJ have functional limit too. The reality shows us the necessity of the World Federation, which can change the state-nation into the world- citizen.
Thinking the fact that the states and the IO have been artificially and historically established, there is every reason to ensure that the wisdom of mankind will be able to build up the WF.
