John Birch Society on World Federation (1958)

“An honestly intended federation of nations, in some later years or decades, for the legitimate purpose of increasing the freedom of individuals, goods, and cultures to cross national boundaries, and hence for the very purpose of decreasing governmental restrictions on individuals, is something we would support with all our hearts. But until- the intended Communist Internationale now called the United Nations has been wiped out or made over from the bottom up, our attitude towards so-called internationalism is made clear and uncompromising by the stated purpose of the Society. As Richard Cobden said, “peace will come to this earth when her peoples have as much as possible to do with each other; their governments the least possible.  It is axiomatic that we shall strive to hasten the world’s approach to those conditions in every way we can.”
