A supernational empire for the Savitri Erans

[How does an alliance of English-speaking, freedom and market friendly nations sound?

The socio-political dimensions of Savitri Era have to be diligently worked out in an atmosphere of collective consultations. Here we are dealing with the Global culture and ethnicity in all its diversity. The myriad aspects of political sensitivities have also to be responded to. The present formulation of Multiculturalism is surely not the answer and the Marxist enthusiasm to keep religious sentiments out have to be fought against. The future vision of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo constitute an authentic reference point for a genuinely federal, if not unitary, collective living. And time and again Sri Aurobindo has pointed out that the future identities would not depend upon geographically contiguous political entities.

Such a supernational empire can be conceived for the Savitri Erans. In fact it is already in operation. A little bit of an organizing initiative can make it a formidable force to reckon with. Then we can have our say at all international forums more forcefully. [TNM]
