"The rich will strive to establish their dominion and enslave the rest. They always did...they always will. They will have the same effect here as elsewhere, if we do not, by the power of government, keep them in their proper spheres." -- Gouverneur Morris - (1752-1816) represented Pennsylvania in the Constitutional Convention of 1787, author of large sections of the Constitution for the United States, credited as the author of its Preamble (from ICH)|
*Democratic World Federalists A path to a peaceful, just, and sustainable world... What is a World Federation? It’s a global government, elected by the people of the world, with local problems solved locally, national problems solved nationally and global problems solved globally. Has news, blog, articles, and opinion
World Beyond War a global movement to end all wars. A global security system: An alternative to War!
*Democratic World Parliament (DWP) Excerpts from website:
“There is no salvation for civilization, or even the human race, other than the creation of a world government.” – Albert Einstein
“It is important to realize that in many respects, we already have world government! The problem is that the global agencies that perform functions that really ought to be the responsibility and the job of a DWG—the World Trade Organization, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the UN—are not democratic at present … nor do they even pretend to be democratic … nor are they ever likely or expected to become democratic through any process of internal reform.” – Jim Stark
“We have been engaged in a civil war of humanity for millennia. We have … killed each other over religion, tribe, ethnicity and nationality. In all these battles we allow our secondary identities, our national identity, our religious identity, our tribal identity and others to overcome our primary identity, our human identity. In short we lose our humanity. Our existing political systems have blinded us to our humanity by imprisoning us in a conceptual paradigm in which only national political goals are imaginable.” – Lyndon Storey (from his summary of his book, Humanity or Sovereignty)
“So long as there are sovereign nations possessing great power, war is inevitable. That is not an attempt to say when it will come, but only that it is sure to come. That was true before the atomic bomb was made. What has been changed is the destructiveness of war.” – Albert Einstein
It is possible, by using the Internet, to collect the global mandate in a manner that does not depend on the cooperation of our national governments... This does not mean we will all speak one language, share the same religion or blend everything we value into a kind of cultural stew—only that we can be united in our need to prevent World War III, and in our determination to create a democratic world government to ban war from the human agenda and to begin the repair of the planet’s environment (among many other things). We can put the global referendum ballot “out there” electronically, and promote it for as long as it takes to reach a point where the majority of adults are factually known and proven to be in support of the creation of a democratic world government.
The DWG will have the power to carry out its mandate, which should include the following matters as priorities:
1 Outlaw war and address its root causes;
2 Create and execute a rescue plan for the Earth’s environment, and ensure a sustainable future for the planet;
3 Establish the judicial system that will be required to ensure the full observance of its laws and the resolution of disputes in areas under its jurisdiction;
4 Develop and promulgate the laws necessary to protect the rights of persons as set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other globally binding instruments; and
5 Establish, train and equip a modest military peace force to ensure the full implementation of DWG policies and judicial orders in all situations where the “enforcement” of world law is clearly the only way to resolve a dispute.
The Internet makes it possible for the human race to speak as one, to interconnect, communicate, organize and act on a global basis … and to publicly demand and get what it is that we need most—a lawful end to the international state of anarchy and a new institution of democratic global governance that is directly elected and so transparent as to be completely “corruption-free”.
