Summary
How can the new world order of the twenty-first century avoid the horrors of the twentieth? Will nations form a real community or continue to aggressively pursue their own interests? Will the Machiavellian approaches of the past prevail over idealism and a more humanitarian politics? What role can religion play in a world increasingly dominated by transnational corporations? Kung tackles these and many other questions with the insight and moral authority that comes from a life-time's devotion to the search for justice and human dignity. Arguing against both an amoral realpolitik and an immoral resurgence of laissez-faire economics, Kung defines a comprehensive ethic - founded on the bedrock of mutual respect and humane treatment of all beings - that would encompass the ecological, legal, technological, and social patterns that are reshaping civilization. If we are going to have a global economy, a global technology, a global media, Kung argues, we must also have a global ethic to which all nations, and peoples of the most varied backgrounds and beliefs, can commit themselves. "The world," he says, "is not going to be held together by the Internet."
