    Descriptive info: We are a coalition of organizations working in various ways toward a civilized system of world law.. World Law Enforcement to.. Ban weapons of mass destruction,.. Protect the Earth's environment,.. Prevent/stop international military aggression,.. Uphold basic human rights,.. Help eliminate poverty and hunger worldwide.. Individual Accountability--a Fundamental Concept:.. World law enforcement would apply to individual persons.. We believe that it is dangerous and unjust to punish an entire nation for the crimes of its leaders.. Universal Accountability:.. Everyone would be accountable under world law, including all national and world government officials.. No one would be above the law.. A World Constitution:.. Before law enforcement powers are given to any world organization, there must be safeguards against world tyranny.. An essential safeguard is a world constitution with a global bill of human rights.. Global Structures:.. The world constitution (whether a modified UN Charter, or a document drafted independently of the UN) would provide for a democratic federal world government under world law.. The world government would include a democratically elected world legislature, world courts, and a world executive with a world  ...   law, to.. Protect innocent people on each side of the conflict,.. Stop the violence,.. Arrest and prosecute persons responsible for the aggression.. Essential, Not Merely Desirable.. We think that a democratic federal world government is essential for the protection of the Earth's life support systems, because we believe:.. 1.. That national and international laws are inadequate to protect the global environment and halt the proliferation of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction;.. 2.. That there is an urgent need for enforceable world law to protect the world's people and the future of our children;.. 3.. That an adequate system of world law requires some form of world government;.. 4.. That the only type of world government that would have any chance of being acceptable to the world's people would be a constitutional democratic federal world government under world law.. A democratic federal world government, founded on a world constitution with a global bill of human rights, will protect cultural diversity throughout the world and enable the human family to act as one to protect its common global home..

  • Title:
    Descriptive info: from Bob Gauntt.. A few years ago, Hank Stone and I drafted a list of proposed points of consensus, divided into two parts (Part I--The VISION of a WF and Part II--WHY is WF IMPORTANT?).. We sent the list to about 32 prominent world federalists, asking them to serve as consultants.. Twenty of them responded to the survey.. All 20 responded to Part I; 19 responded to Part II.. Overall, there was about 94% agreement about Part I.. and 93% agreement about Part II.. This report includes:.. (i) The list of the proposed points with the tally of responses for each point: A (number agreed), D (number disagreed);.. (ii) A list of the respondents.. (The report does not include the many comments and suggestions made by the consultants.. ).. PROPOSED POINTS OF CONSENSUS.. PART I: VISION OF A WORLD FEDERATION.. (20 responses).. A world federation, whether a new world organization or a restructured UN, would provide a system of world law enforcement to:.. A (agree) 17 D (disagree) 0.. a) Protect the Earth's environment.. A 18 D 1.. b) Prevent/stop international military aggression.. A 20 D 0.. c) Uphold human rights.. d) Ban weapons of mass destruction.. A 19 D 1.. e) Help to eliminate poverty and hunger worldwide.. Individual Accountability: World law enforcement would apply to individuals.. We believe it is dangerous and unjust to hold entire nations guilty for the crimes of its leaders.. A 19 D 0.. Peacekeeping: If international military aggression occurs, the world government would act, in accordance with world law, to a) protect innocent people on each side of the conflict, b) stop the violence and c) arrest and prosecute persons responsible for the aggression.. Universal Accountability: Everyone would be responsible for complying with world law, including all national and world leaders.. World Government: Systematic world law enforcement would require some form of world government, whether a restructured United Nations or a new world organization.. A World Constitution: Before law enforcement powers are given to any world organization, there must be safeguards against world tyranny.. A 17 D 3.. (I spoke to the three people who objected to Point 6 above about a world constitution.. All three indicated that there would be a need for a world constitution or a modified U.. N.. Charter that would be the  ...   security.. A 13 D 3.. b) Some nations will want nuclear weapons for security, not only to deter nuclear aggression, but also to deter conventional aggression from larger nations.. A 16 D 1.. Until we have a world organization that nations can count on for security, we cannot have nuclear disarmament and the world will drift toward unparalleled catastrophe.. A 16 D 2.. Global security requires nuclear disarmament and a system to prevent/stop convential aggression, which in turn requires enforcement of global laws for the security of citizens in every nation, which in turn requires world government.. The only form of government known to satisfy the diverse local requirements, while preserving unity in areas of common interest, is federal government.. A 17 D 1.. Areas of common interest to the world go beyond nuclear disarmament, and preserving peace and justice.. Human rights violations, pollution, climate change, resource depletion, loss of biodiversity, famine, poverty, and unemployment are all of global concern.. A 18 D 0.. These problems, all beyond the power of national governments to solve, are likely to be made more serious in the next decades by unsustainable population growth and unsustainable consumption.. At stake is not just our ability to keep the peace, but protection of the life support systems of the earth for our children and their children.. World federal government will give us a mechanism to solve the key global problems.. LIST OF RESPONDENTS.. John Anderson, President of WFA.. Joseph Baratta.. Tad Daley, Founder of Campaign for a New U.. Charter.. John Ewbanks.. Bob Gauntt, Coordinator of WF Consensus Project.. Ronald Glossop, First Vice President of WFA..

Civitatis International.. Esperanto League for North America, Inc.. International Simultaneous Policy Organization.. THE AMERICAN MOVEMENT FOR WORLD GOVERNMENT.. World Federalist groups since 1905 had made attempts to cooperate in the U.. S.. When the (former) World Federalist Association focused on a gradual approach similar to that of the United Nations, the American Movement for World Government (AMWG) was established by Wm.. H.. D.. Cox Jr.. (Bill Cox) in 1955 along with many other respected leaders in the movement (see website below).. AMWG created a new home for "all" American world federalists, including those that favored a constitutional convention.. And, AMWG played a significant role in creating the Coalition for Democratic World Government.. AMWG believes that the growing and unregulated power of transnational corporations, along with superpower preemptive unilateral strikes, strongly suggests that NOW is the time to push for world government.. AMWG is associated with World Peace News (see below) and invites readers to subscribe to WPN.. We invite you to join AMWG.. Basic dues are $35.. 00 per calendar year.. Send check payable to AMWG to Frances Jellinek, Treasurer AMWG, 104 Paradise Harbor Blvd.. #515, North Palm Beach, FL 33408.. Hal Schaffer, President.. Telephone: 561-863-7187.. Fax: 561-863-5763.. Email: haldpd93@aol.. com.. http://www.. americanmovementforworldgovernment.. org/.. THE ASHBURN INSTITUTE.. The Ashburn Institute, established in 2004, is a non-profit organization emerging out of the Association to Unite the Democracies, an organization born in 1939 to promote international peace through federation of the world's democracies.. We are dedicated to uniting democratic nations, by promoting democracy and cooperation.. We do this through educational and cultural exchanges among the representatives of the global community.. We organize and sponsor conferences, discussions and forums in order to bring together students, academics and professionals worldwide to contemplate and find solutions to the challenges and opportunities of democratization and cooperation.. Increased cooperation among the peoples of the world will ultimately lead to greater peace, more freedom, and the eventual integration of democratic nations.. Greater cooperation and federation will create an environment in which fledging democracies can thrive, and attract other democracies to join.. We believe that a federation of democracies is the most effective means to address the common problems of all peoples.. Marielle Reiss, Executive Director.. P.. O.. Box 77164.. Washington, D..

Citizens for a United Earth (CUE) exists to promote global thinking and global citizenship, leading to a positive, sustainable future for all passengers of spaceship earth.. Our roots are in the nuclear disarmament movement, but we now believe world peace cannot be achieved without addressing hunger, poverty, ignorance, injustice, overpopulation, and environmental damage, and especially renewable energy, as well as war.. We send out periodic emails on subjects related to peace and the global future--.. The [PEACE] List.. --and invite you to subscribe from our website.. We print and distribute FREE bumper stickers featuring the Earth Dot (a light blue solid circle representing the earth seen from space).. Messages include: World Peace, Many Colors-One Human Family, Every Child Deserves a Future that Works, There are No Foreigners, Earth is our Neighborhood, and many more.. People increasingly know about the world's problems.. But before they can accept democratic world government, they need help arriving at a new, self-consistent and positive vision of the human future.. Until that vision takes root, people will continue to reject global governance as unrealistic.. c/o Hank Stone.. 1880 Route 64.. Ionia, New York 14475.. U.. A.. Telephone: 585-624-3673.. c-u-e.. CONSULTATIVE ASSEMBLY OF THE PEOPLE'S CONGRESS.. Many individuals and groups are working toward global justice.. Many of these have a presence on the Internet.. Some deal with world governance, direct democracy, or new economic democracy, and most are concerned with the environment and sustainability.. The Community of World Citizens has merged with the Consultative Assembly of the People's Congress to contribute to the coordination of these separate efforts.. Coordination can present a problem.. If different initiatives are brought together in an ours vs.. theirs way, effectiveness may be lost.. We promote a new perspective allowing for a common ours , theirs as a pool of resources, and democratic procedures to connect the two.. Join us! Our website tells how to declare yourself as a world citizen, publicize the idea, interact with others cooperatively, and help us develop the fully democratic tools the world needs.. We seek both organizations and individuals to associate themselves with us, including political, governmental, and non-governmental.. Group participation will clear the way for political action within the assembly of world citizens.. Josep L.. L.. Ortega.. Email: jllortega@andorra.. ad.. http://ascop.. editme.. com/home.. DEMOCRATIC WORLD FEDERALISTS (Formerly WFNCA).. Since the 1940 s, we have been promoting awareness of the concept of good global government, and urging the creation of a democratic world federation.. This could be achieved in many ways, including restructuring and democratizing the United Nations.. In 2004 we became an independently incorporated tax exempt educational organization, with supporters in 15 states and 3 other countries.. Our quarterly newsletter,.. Toward Democratic World Federation.. , has been in print for 14 years, with a circulation of about 1,200, throughout the US and in two dozen other countries.. The citizens of the world are sovereign, and have the right to participate in self-government, delegating their powers at any level they see fit.. The United Nations is not a government; and a world government is needed to address the global problems of war, civil conflict, poverty, disease, environmental damage, and to uphold human rights.. This is the federalist message that we bring to movements for peace, human rights, and social justice.. We have speaking engagements, email messages, letters to the media and to politicians, and work with other organizations as well as with the public..

At the Genome Project announcement in Washington and London it was declared that there is only one race--the human race.. Black, brown, white, yellow, red, and tartan we are one people.. People are people are people.. But there is no self-government for the global village.. Global Citizens' Association is a non-profit, non-partisan corresponding world network supporting the notion of planetary citizenship, the brotherhood and sisterhood of humankind, the Nation of Humanity.. No paid staff or office.. Supported by donations and volunteers.. Proposed for funding: an experimental, exploratory Global Assembly with nominated delegates from existing political jurisdictions of ten million--sub-national, mega-cities or nation-states with electronic weighted voting by population with a global perspective agenda set by the Assembly..

We are planning a four-day conference focused on the eventual creation of a Constitution for Earth.. The first annual gathering will be in Philadelphia, September 14-17, 2005, at the birthplace of federalist government, where the U.. Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787.. Rather than specifically creating a particular document at this stage, our focus will be on fostering DEPTH and BREADTH in the peace movement.. By.. depth.. we intend that there be opportunity for full participation in deep dialogue with all other attendees, so each day will include face-to-face discussions of key substantive issues, such as (1) the desirability of world federalism; (2) whether it can be structured to assure respect for individual freedom, local autonomy, and participatory democracy; (3) its appropriate scope (minimalist vs.. maximal) and values; and (4) strategies for implementation (practical ratifiability issue).. With annual conferences, attendees will get to know one another well: of value in itself.. breadth.. we intend outreach to a general public that has been mostly unaware of our goals and ideas.. We intend to find ways to involve youth, especially the many college students in this area (there are 90 colleges in this region).. We plan to do presentations to college classes before this conference.. Besides top-flight speakers and analysis sessions, we will attract publicity with nationally known musicians.. We will have simultaneous translations and some videoconferencing with sites worldwide.. Visit our website and take part!.. James T..

Home Rule Globally is a nonprofit corporation which sponsors and coordinates a constellation of projects.. HRG emphasizes both voluntarism and the desirability of adequate; but constitutionally restricted, governmental authority over individuals and corporate entities when government is appropriate.. HRG's decentralism stresses local, regional, and provincial government with minimal government at national, continental, and global levels.. For about 500 years, over-centralization at the national level has endangered humanity.. A constitution for a world government should "de-fang" nations by abolishing all national monetarism and all national militarism.. Provinces and towns should handle whatever can plausibly be locally managed in a predominantly demilitarized world.. HRG is a think-tank promoting research projects.. Debates about alternative Proposals for a Constitution for a Supra-National Federation should be predominantly in provincial legislatures because such debates are irrelevant to coping with traditional treaty law.. The Contest Appraising Democratic World Government (CADWEWG) makes such shift of where the future should be debated.. CADEWG requires 67% of world support, as measured by each of population, wealth, and military power before a Supra-National Federation would be launched.. CADWEWG preserves the UN during a Dual Systems Era until each nation voluntarily joins such federation.. GLOBE-LIB is a worldwide membership organization for seekers of global liberty and government, sponsored by Home Rule Globally..

Eight sessions have been held, enacting 30 world legislative statutes, providing an excellent legal basis for democratic world government.. The law of the Provisional World Parliament is not subject to approval by national governments, but only subject to the duly-elected World Parliament, when that forms..

The World Federalist Movement is an international citizen's movement working for justice, peace, and sustainable prosperity..

There is just one world that we all must share.. It is rich in resources, information and technology, but for the world to work for future generations we must share these cooperatively.. World Government Institute was founded in Pakistan in 1990 as a forum, with goals of establishing world government, developing an international currency, treating nations equally, and improving the world s standard of living.. The United Nations is not a world government but only an instrument to be used by sovereign member states..

The Center for War/Peace Studies believes we are seeing gross planetary mismanagement because of an obsolete international political system based on full sovereignty for almost 200 nation-states.. The United Nations cannot handle global problems because its Security Council veto makes the greatest powers exempt from its jurisdiction.. The General Assembly can only make recommendations, and in it small states have a voting strength vastly disproportionate to their political/economic/military strength.. Our innovation is the Binding Triad weighted voting system for the U.. General assembly.. The Binding Triad would require just one amendment to the U.. It would give the U.. a legislative body, which it doesn't now have.. With the Binding Triad, the General Assembly would be able to make binding resolutions, if and only if three concurrent majorities of votes for a resolution were achieved:.. one-nation-one-vote (same as now).. population, and.. contributions to the U.. budget.. The population leg of the triad introduces a strong element of democracy into U.. decision-making.. Contributions to the U.. , roughly based on a country's GNP, reflect the importance of having the countries that will have to pay most of the bills supporting legislation.. The Binding Triad system would protect against frivolous resolutions.. But where balanced solutions to problems of peacekeeping, regional conflicts, drugs, international finance, and arms reductions can be found, this innovation would allow them to become law..

CITIZENS FOR GLOBAL SOLUTIONS.. We envision a future in which nations work together to abolish war, protect our rights and freedoms, and solve the problems facing humanity that no nation can solve alone.. This vision requires effective democratic global institutions that will apply the rule of law while respecting the diversity and autonomy of national and local communities.. We are a membership organization working to build political will in the United States to achieve our vision.. We do this by educating Americans about our global interdependence, communicating global concerns to public officials, and developing proposals to create, reform, and strengthen international institutions such as the United Nations.. Today Citizens for Global Solutions promotes its vision and mission through member activism and grassroots advocacy, the support of political candidates who share our values, program initiatives like our International Criminal Court project, research and writing conducted by our "big-picture think tank" -- the World Federalist Institute, and education and outreach efforts nationwide..

Sidney, BC V8L 3S6.. INTERNATIONAL SIMULTANEOUS POLICY ORGANIZATION.. International Simultaneous Policy Organization (ISPO) is a growing association of citizens worldwide who use their votes in a coordinated, effective way to drive all nations to co-operate in solving our planetary crisis.. Simultaneous policy requires governments in all jurisdictions at once, worldwide, to implement a policy shift.. at once.. , so that none is disadvantaged.. Citizens who "adopt" the Simultaneous Policy (SP) take the formulation of global policy into their own hands.. Their adoption of SP represents their pledge to vote in future elections, not for a.. particular.. politician or political party, but for ANY politician or party - within reason - that pledges to implement SP when all or sufficient nations do likewise.. With more and more parliamentary seats and even entire elections increasingly being won or lost on very small margins, a relatively small number of SP adopters have the opportunity to make it in the strong interests of all politicians and parties to pledge to implement SP while also making it potentially disastrous for them if they fail to do so.. As such, ISPO claims that SP permits civil society, through its adoption of SP, for the first time to "lead governments, not the other way round".. Simultaneous initiatives are a way to avoid prisoner's dilemma type problems, wherein there is a strong reward for defecting, and a risk for going along with a proposed plan if there is even one defector..

  • Title:
    Descriptive info: Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.. The world in arms is not spending money alone.. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.. President Dwight D.. Eisenhower.. The world no longer has a choice between force and law; if civilization is to survive, it must choose the rule of law.. There must be, not a balance of power, but a community of power; not organized rivalries, but an organized common peace.. President Woodrow Wilson.. Unless some effective world supergovernment for the purpose of preventing war can be set up.. the prospects for peace and human progress are dark.. If.. it is found possible to build a world organization of irresistible force and inviolable authority for the purpose of securing peace, there are no limits to the blessings which all men enjoy and share.. Winston Churchill.. There is no salvation for civilization, or even the human race, other than the creation of a world government.. Albert Einstein.. we have been warned by the power of modern weapons, that peace may be the only climate possible for human life itself.. There must be law, steadily invoked and respected by all nations, for without law, the world promises only such meager justice as the pity of the strong upon the weak.. We must create world-wide law and law enforcement as we outlaw world-wide war and weapons.. President John F.. Kennedy.. There is an increasing awareness of the need for some form of global government.. Mikhail Gorbachev.. There is enough bad in people to make law necessary, and enough good in people to make it workable.. Source unknown.. The international community should support a system of laws to regularize international relations and maintain the peace in the same manner that law governs national order.. Pope John Paul II.. World federalism is an idea that will not die.. More and more people are coming to realize that peace must be more than an interlude if we are to survive; that peace is a product of law  ...   vague imagining of a visionary.. But we must go on or we will go under.. We must have new thoughts, new ideas, new concepts.. We must break out of the straightjacket of the past.. We must sufficient imagination and courage to translate the universal wish for peace which is rapidly becoming a necessity into actuality.. General Douglas MacArthur, July 5, 1961..
