The Epilogue explores the different forms the New World Order might take.
Will it be benign and engender the abolition of war, disease and famine under the auspices of the UN, or will it be malevolent and so usher in an era of world dictatorship under a tyrant of the Hitler/Stalin type?
How democratic will it be? Will it replace North American civilisation or be a phase within its development?
Gathering up all the threads of the book, it asks whether the nation-state can survive and what the lessons for the future are.
