Thanks for the Pinder link.

It's a shame that the interwar federalists (globalists) never consulted the Federalist Papers or the problems that Madison and co. faced. The globalists would have found their situations to be almost exactly alike, and the "republican remedy" put forth by Madison and co. to be exactly what Europe needed (and still needs).

I think Hayek was correct to pinpoint national sovereignties as a problem that needs to be solved. The 18th century Americans solved this problem with a federal union, and I don't see why this exact same federal union -- which is still in place and which has created a republic powerful enough to prevent conquest by non-republican polities - is not being used to further integrate societies today. That is to say, why can't England or Taiwan or Liberia federate with the 50 American "states" under the Madisonian constitution?
