For the last several weeks we've explored one of the most fascinating papers in The Urantia Book, Paper 72, Government on a Neighboring Planet.

In Paper 50, The Urantia Book states, "The progress of civilization is hardly alike on any two planets. The details of the unfoldment of mortal evolution are very different on numerous dissimilar worlds. Notwithstanding these many diversifications of planetary development along physical, intellectual, and social lines, all evolutionary spheres progress in certain well-defined directions."

So far, we've explored these interesting aspects of how civilization has evolved on a nearby planet: political organization, home life, educational system, industrial organization, old age insurance and taxation. This week we cover the special colleges, universal suffrage and dealing with crime.

The insights revealed in Paper 72 are relevant to the problems currently faced by the developed nations on this world. Paper 72 is practical and insightful and thus far we've had some very scholarly helpers who have called in to explore these concepts. Many thanks to historian Charles Olivea, who has contributed such depth to this discussion with his historical understanding and insights.

We hope you will join us again on Saturday morning at 10 AM MDT, as we once again delve deeply into the meaning of these remarkable teachings. Humanity shall not fail!
