In the 1930s, the New York Times correspondent at the League of Nations, Clarence K. Streit, observed the rise of the Hitler-Mussolini-Hirohito totalitarian forces and the failure of Western democracies to agree on measures to halt their aggression and enable the League to work. In alarm he wrote a book, published in 1939, titled Union Now: A Proposal for a Federal Union of the Leading Democracies. In the book, Streit proposed a federal union of democratic nations, which he hoped would avert another world war, create incentives for democratic reform in outlying states, and gradually expand its membership. *Note: The articles posted here do not necessarily reflect the views of the Streit Council.see more
