La libertà, considerata innata, inscindibilmente legata all’umanità dell’uomo, e inalienabile – proprio come entro le Dichiarazioni rivoluzionarie (americana e francese) dei diritti che precedono i singoli dettati costituzionali –, è definita qui «facoltà di non obbedire ad altra legge se non a quella a cui avrei potuto dare il mio consenso».

E' incredibile vedere come gli Stati siano andati nella direzione auspicata nel 1795 da Kant. Siamo ancora molto lontani dalla pace perpetua (e mondiale), ma sembra proprio che il processo sia in corso d'opera. Al tempo di Kant, l'Unione Europea o le Nazioni Unite erano un miraggio, mentre oggi sono realtà quotidiana. Quanto efficaci è ancora da vedere, ma Kant stesso affermava che la pace perpetua era un ideale al quale bisognava sforzarsi di avvicinarsi il più possibile. ( )

A nice find on Librivox. Agree or disagree with Kant, he definitely has a very comprehensive and elaborate philosophy. Would be interesting to know how Kant would have interpreted the United Nations and NATO. ( )

Kant's most directly political work. It anticipates the international system of our own day.

First words
Republicanism is the political principle of the separation of the executive power (the administration) from the legislative; despotism is that of the autonomous execution by the state of laws which it has itself decreed. […] Therefore, we can say: the smaller the personnel of the government (the smaller the number of rulers), the greater is their representation and the more nearly the constitution approaches to the possibility of republicanism; thus the constitution may be expected by gradual reform finally to raise itself to republicanism […]. None of the ancient so-called "republics" knew this system, and they all finally and inevitably degenerated into despotism under the sovereignty of one, which is the most bearable of all forms of despotism.
