Hans J. Morgenthau on International Relations - Dictionary of Arguments
Brocker I 289
International Relations/War/Peace/Morgenthau: The technique of peaceful settlement of disputes can only go so far as sovereign states are prepared to actually surrender objects in order to submit them to an international court. What would be the most effective solution to the problem of peace and transnational stability?
Question: Which central factor supports stability at the national level and which central factor is responsible for continuing instability at the international level? (1) The answer falls into one: It is the sovereignty of the state itself. To the outside, it cements anarchy. Internally, it provides continuity in time and space; it provides a home; it nurtures and protects a space in which social change remains in peaceful paths; it ensures the effectiveness of law (2).
Peace/Morgenthau: Whoever wants to put world peace on the safest possible foundation cannot avoid the world state.
