The Winter 2016 issue of The Modernist is a timely examination of Governments; Can’t live with them, can’t live without them. Democracy is a great idea—until the other guy wins; and surely no one wants to live in anarchy? Unless you are an anarchist. Obviously. At the other extreme a dictator usually comes to a sticky end; so think on if any of you a planning on becoming one. As for us—be you communist or capitalist—you're welcome as long as you are a modernist.

The Government issue includes features on scouring the globe for the products of government; Pondering how to run the country after we have destroyed it; A diplomatic grand tour of the world’s modernist embassies; stripping off in the name of socialism. A wise man once said ‘everybody wants to rule the world’. Not us though. We are internationalists. We are the brotherhood of man.
