fwiw.. I think it pivots NOT on singular v plural as the 'World' is a singular object...
upon the entity (appealed to) being an 'authority'.. and one could argue that the 'world' is not an 'authority'.
One could invoke Congress for protection.
I don't like beseech/implore... as it implies the concept of 'begging'.
So I deferred to the translation to come up with an alternative.
Thanks for CARING enuf to help me.
