Stassen, ‘Blueprint for a World Government’, New York Times Magazine, 23 May 1943. See also H. E. Stassen. ‘We Need a World Government’, Saturday Evening Post, 22 May 1943. Stassen’s ideas for a ‘United Nations of the World’ soon brought him to the attention of President Roosevelt who selected him to be part of the US delegation, led by Secretary of State Edward Stettinius, to the United Nations Charter Conference held in San Francisco from April to June 1945.

One step in that direction could be the creation of a single house or parliament in which nations would be represented and given voting power in proportion to their strength in world affairs. An executive body, a seven-member United Nations council, designated by the chairman of the parliament, would be responsible and accountable to the legislative branch. The ‘United Nations government’ would have several functions, including the following: establishing temporary governments or trusteeships; administrating international airways and airports, and the gateways to the seven seas; contributing to the increase in trade between nations; increasing the literacy and improving the health of the world population; and establishing a United Nations court and a world code of justice emphasizing human rights and the protection of minorities.
