History of the Global Community organization and Earth Government

1985 to 1988  

 

 

Part of the period from 1985 to 1988 not shown here has been covered in an other article.

Historically, the Earth Community Organization (ECO) was called The Global Community organization. the  Global  Community The name was changed during the August 2000 Global Dialogue. Global Dialogue 2000 Thereafter, we used both names as meaning the same organization. The Global Community means the Earth Community Organization and vice versa. Global Community WebNet Ltd. has operated its business under the name of the Global Community for several years and is still doing now. Global Community WebNet Ltd.

The Global Community organization was first discussed in a report on global changes published in 1990 by Germain Dufour. See professional qualifications The report contained 450 policies (workable sound solutions) on sustainable development, and was presented to the United Nations, the Government of Canada, the provincial  government of Alberta and several non-profit organizations and scientists.

The  Earth Community Organization aims to establish a new, permanent dialogue on measuring and managing sustainable development. It is a grassroots process. Everyone is involved. Everyone is part of the  Earth Community. Your views are important. We want to hear what they are.
Submitted reports on sustainable development to Green Plan of Canada, the Alberta Government and the United Nations.

Submitted to the United Nations the definition and a method of measurement of sustainable development. The method is based on a scale making wide use of hundreds of indicators, indices as well as statistical and field data. Two local / global indicators were developed to measure the quality and cost of development: the Gross Environmental Sustainable Development Index (GESDI) and the Gross Sustainable Development Product (GSDP). Measurements were made and a benchmark for the 21st century was obtained for Calgary, Alberta and Canada.

Wrote 450 environmental policies towards the development of the Green Plan of Canada and the Alberta Environmental Protection Enhancement Act, Bill 23. Title of the report:

Global Change
A grassroots process
To develop new policies, and create new mechanisms and strategies, to increase our planet's ability to assure the continuation of life, and to pursue the goal to make Canada, by the year 2000, the world's most environmentally friendly country.

The Head Offices of 'The Global Community Organization' and the 'Interim Earth Government were moved to Guelph, Ontario, Canada.
Drafting of the Charter of the Global Community on basis on alternative choices.
Plan agreed for an Interim Earth Government to meet regularly.
Global Dialogue 2000
August 17-22, 2000, in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, and August 1-31, 2002, on Internet.
Global Dialogue 2000 was promoting The Global Community organization, the Earth Community Organization (ECO), the Human Family, the Earth Society, (different names for the same organization) with the mandate of managing Earth. The World Congress on Managing and Measuring Sustainable Development - Global Community Action 1 was about establishing the foundation for a sound Earth Government. We estimate that so far the World Congress and The Global Community concepts have made contact by 'ricochet' with at least a million people throughout the World. We have three mailing lists: the Participants list of about 500 businesses, NGOs, universities, professionals, and the public from 90 countries; an intermediate mailing list of 5,000 "interested" individuals (an 'individual' here may either be a person, a corporation, a NGO, a local community, a group of people, a business, or a government); and finally an extensive mailing list of 18,000 individuals from all countries of the world. Again by the effects of 'ricochet' and chain reaction after creation of new thoughts we will touch the hearts and the minds of the billions of people on Earth. This will happen very quickly. Most likely within a year. The World Congress has broken grounds not only in the number of interested participants but also in its new global dialogue on Earth Management. The hundreds of people who have sent us their research work (280 research papers were submitted) from around the world represent only a part of a great ground-swell of concern for the future of our planet. It is quite possible the men and women who have produced this body of work will go down in history as major instruments of change. We now have 73 Discussion Roundtables divided into the four interacting quality systems: Social(37), Environment(16), Economics(8) and Availability of Resources(12). We went past previous Earth Summits organized by governments who have been focusing only on a specific issue without including the public throughout the world and without taking into account all impacts. We are proposing here to The Global Community that sound solutions to world problems can only be brought forward after analyzing all important interacting impacts.
The Global Community Assessment Centre (GCAC) publishes monthly reports and articles concerned with Earth governance and management; Global sustainability; the Global Community overall picture; Humanity's new vision of the world.

1.     Global Justice for all life on the planet
by Germain Dufour, with the Global Community
The Global Community Global Justice Movement has many inter-related components: monetary, social, economic, environmental, democracy, and peace. The Global Community Global Justice Movement promotes new thinking to benefit all economies and societies – the true, fair, democratic and efficient solution to poverty. The Global Community has the productive resources to eliminate poverty and injustice. Humanity is now in the process of developing the democratic and transparent communications infrastructure which can bring this about. Our approach transcends left-wing/right-wing designations. We see both conventional capitalism and socialism as being two arms of a philosophy which concentrate power in an elite, to the detriment of society as a whole. Reforming the current money system, to empower each and every person, is a first step for justice. Global Justice for all life on the planet
2.     Global Warming: driving governments to take action , by John Bunzl – ISPO Founder, Trustee and Coordinator, jbunzl@simpol.org Simpol promotes the Simultaneous Policy (SP), which aims to deliver social justice around the world, resolve global problems like environmental destruction and regulate the economic power of international capital for the good of all. Simpol seeks solutions to problems that individual national governments cannot resolve by acting alone. Global warming is now at the top of the political agenda. But why aren't governments taking the necessary action? Because any nation legislating to curb the emissions of its industries will make its economy "uncompetitive" with other countries, thus risking investment and jobs moving elsewhere.

2.     Global Justice for all life on the planet
by Germain Dufour, with the Global Community
The Global Community Global Justice Movement has many inter-related components: monetary, social, economic, environmental, democracy, and peace. The Global Community Global Justice Movement promotes new thinking to benefit all economies and societies – the true, fair, democratic and efficient solution to poverty. The Global Community has the productive resources to eliminate poverty and injustice. Humanity is now in the process of developing the democratic and transparent communications infrastructure which can bring this about. Our approach transcends left-wing/right-wing designations. We see both conventional capitalism and socialism as being two arms of a philosophy which concentrate power in an elite, to the detriment of society as a whole. Reforming the current money system, to empower each and every person, is a first step for justice. Global Justice for all life on the planet
3.     Global Warming: driving governments to take action , by John Bunzl – ISPO Founder, Trustee and Coordinator, jbunzl@simpol.org Simpol promotes the Simultaneous Policy (SP), which aims to deliver social justice around the world, resolve global problems like environmental destruction and regulate the economic power of international capital for the good of all. Simpol seeks solutions to problems that individual national governments cannot resolve by acting alone. Global warming is now at the top of the political agenda. But why aren't governments taking the necessary action? Because any nation legislating to curb the emissions of its industries will make its economy "uncompetitive" with other countries, thus risking investment and jobs moving elsewhere.

The Global Community has the productive resources to eliminate poverty and injustice.

Simpol seeks solutions to problems that individual national governments cannot resolve by acting alone. Global warming is now at the top of the political agenda.

Because any nation legislating to curb the emissions of its industries will make its economy "uncompetitive" with other countries, thus risking investment and jobs moving elsewhere.

1.     Global Justice for all life on the planet
by Germain Dufour, with the Global Community
The Global Community Global Justice Movement has many inter-related components: monetary, social, economic, environmental, democracy, and peace. The Global Community Global Justice Movement promotes new thinking to benefit all economies and societies – the true, fair, democratic and efficient solution to poverty. The Global Community has the productive resources to eliminate poverty and injustice. Humanity is now in the process of developing the democratic and transparent communications infrastructure which can bring this about. Our approach transcends left-wing/right-wing designations. We see both conventional capitalism and socialism as being two arms of a philosophy which concentrate power in an elite, to the detriment of society as a whole. Reforming the current money system, to empower each and every person, is a first step for justice. Global Justice for all life on the planet
1.     Global Warming: driving governments to take action , by John Bunzl – ISPO Founder, Trustee and Coordinator, jbunzl@simpol.org Simpol promotes the Simultaneous Policy (SP), which aims to deliver social justice around the world, resolve global problems like environmental destruction and regulate the economic power of international capital for the good of all. Simpol seeks solutions to problems that individual national governments cannot resolve by acting alone. Global warming is now at the top of the political agenda. But why aren't governments taking the necessary action? Because any nation legislating to curb the emissions of its industries will make its economy "uncompetitive" with other countries, thus risking investment and jobs moving elsewhere.

by Germain Dufour, with the Global Community
The Global Community Global Justice Movement has many inter-related components: monetary, social, economic, environmental, democracy, and peace. The Global Community Global Justice Movement promotes new thinking to benefit all economies and societies – the true, fair, democratic and efficient solution to poverty. The Global Community has the productive resources to eliminate poverty and injustice. Humanity is now in the process of developing the democratic and transparent communications infrastructure which can bring this about. Our approach transcends left-wing/right-wing designations. We see both conventional capitalism and socialism as being two arms of a philosophy which concentrate power in an elite, to the detriment of society as a whole. Reforming the current money system, to empower each and every person, is a first step for justice. Global Justice for all life on the planet

If we reach that point, it won't matter except to resilient beetles and bacteria free at last from us. Instead of being an asset, superior human intelligence has us on the brink of our own self-destruction. Resource Wars: Can We Survive Them?

A few people at that time attempted to promote a balanced perspective by pointing out that the United States had also been responsible for causing those same feelings in people in other nations, but they produced hardly a ripple.

Strengthen Women’s Resistance: Oppose Imperialism’s Intensifying Attacks! Assert Women’s Basic Human Rights!
In Canada, a patriarchal resurgence and ever-more entrenched systemic racism are intensifying the exploitation, oppression, and economic exclusion of working class, (im)migrant, refugee and Indigenous women. We are hard hit by the neo-liberal policies of the Canadian government of liberalization, deregulation and privatization which leave working class women unable to earn a decent income or to access affordable housing, health, and other services. Amidst rising corporate profiteering, government corruption, and military spending, government funding for childcare and women’s programs have been slashed. The insultingly paltry and unjustly distributed $100/month childcare benefit has been a slap in the face for women demanding a genuinely universal national childcare program. (Im)migrant and refugee women face the punitive and exploitative nature of immigration policies such as the Live-in Caregiver Program and unjust deportations. Indigenous women face the ongoing colonization of their land and resources.   Grassroots Women International Women’s Day 2007 Statement
5.     The Crime of War in Iraq , by DR. Charles Mercieca , International Association of Educators for World Peace, Professor Emeritus, Alabama A and M University, Environmental Protection, Human Rights & Disarmament What is the purpose of having rules and regulations when we can disregard them at will at any moment we like? Since the early days of human existence, those that transgressed rules and regulations to the detriment of others always tended to be punished, sooner or later. In order for us to understand the seriousness of such violations, we need to understand properly the significance of laws. In order to do that, we must have a clear concept of the four hierarchical laws of which ascetical writers spoke over the past several centuries. The Crime of War in Iraq

To explain, since "Justice" is the principle of Moral Rightness, its a rational view that to force a human being into submission when that person has neither threatened nor caused harm to others, is both Irrational Enslavement and Morally Unjust. In this connection, it's worth noting that while civilized people have voluntarily agreed to make illegal the Initiation of Physical Force by one human upon another, as in murder, rape, and robbery, no government on earth has yet been held to the same Moral Standard.

1.     A Predator Becomes More Dangerous When Wounded, by Noam Chomsky, with The Guardian, and published in Countercurrents.org For the US, the primary issue in the Middle East has been, and remains, effective control of its unparalleled energy resources. A US attack on Iran would effectively launch WWIII. The US invasion of Iraq virtually instructed Iran to develop a nuclear deterrent. The message was that the US attacks at will, as long as the target is defenceless. Then again, a predator becomes even more dangerous, and less predictable, when wounded. In desperation to salvage something, the Bush administration might risk even greater disasters. It has created an unimaginable catastrophe in Iraq. It has been unable to establish a reliable client state within, and cannot withdraw without facing the possible loss of control of the Middle East's energy resources.

Strengthen Women’s Resistance: Oppose Imperialism’s Intensifying Attacks! Assert Women’s Basic Human Rights!
In Canada, a patriarchal resurgence and ever-more entrenched systemic racism are intensifying the exploitation, oppression, and economic exclusion of working class, (im)migrant, refugee and Indigenous women. We are hard hit by the neo-liberal policies of the Canadian government of liberalization, deregulation and privatization which leave working class women unable to earn a decent income or to access affordable housing, health, and other services. Amidst rising corporate profiteering, government corruption, and military spending, government funding for childcare and women’s programs have been slashed. The insultingly paltry and unjustly distributed $100/month childcare benefit has been a slap in the face for women demanding a genuinely universal national childcare program. (Im)migrant and refugee women face the punitive and exploitative nature of immigration policies such as the Live-in Caregiver Program and unjust deportations. Indigenous women face the ongoing colonization of their land and resources.   Grassroots Women International Women’s Day 2007 Statement

To explain, since "Justice" is the principle of Moral Rightness, its a rational view that to force a human being into submission when that person has neither threatened nor caused harm to others, is both Irrational Enslavement and Morally Unjust. In this connection, it's worth noting that while civilized people have voluntarily agreed to make illegal the Initiation of Physical Force by one human upon another, as in murder, rape, and robbery, no government on earth has yet been held to the same Moral Standard.

In order to do that, we must have a clear concept of the four hierarchical laws of which ascetical writers spoke over the past several centuries. The Crime of War in Iraq

Recently, the response to the fisheries crisis has included a considerable effort directed toward raising the seafood awareness of consumers in North America and Europe. The resulting campaigns aim to affect the seafood demand and to lead to a sustainable seafood supply. Though there are indicators of some regional successes, lack of support by the Asian market and the proliferation of self-serving seafood labels are but two of the many significant limitations of these campaigns. This contribution investigates the difficulties and successes of seafood awareness campaigns, as well as the need for indicators of campaign effectiveness.

The assessment is based on the most recent and complete data available, taking into account direct impacts, along with the impacts of feed crop agriculture required for livestock production. The livestock sector emerges as one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global. The findings of this report suggest that it should be a major policy focus when dealing with problems of land degradation, climate change and air pollution, water shortage and water pollution, and loss of biodiversity. Livestock’s contribution to environmental problems is on a massive scale and its potential contribution to their solution is equally large. The impact is so significant that it needs to be addressed with urgency. Major reductions in impact could be achieved at reasonable cost.

Strengthen Women’s Resistance: Oppose Imperialism’s Intensifying Attacks! Assert Women’s Basic Human Rights!
In Canada, a patriarchal resurgence and ever-more entrenched systemic racism are intensifying the exploitation, oppression, and economic exclusion of working class, (im)migrant, refugee and Indigenous women. We are hard hit by the neo-liberal policies of the Canadian government of liberalization, deregulation and privatization which leave working class women unable to earn a decent income or to access affordable housing, health, and other services. Amidst rising corporate profiteering, government corruption, and military spending, government funding for childcare and women’s programs have been slashed. The insultingly paltry and unjustly distributed $100/month childcare benefit has been a slap in the face for women demanding a genuinely universal national childcare program. (Im)migrant and refugee women face the punitive and exploitative nature of immigration policies such as the Live-in Caregiver Program and unjust deportations. Indigenous women face the ongoing colonization of their land and resources.   Grassroots Women International Women’s Day 2007 Statement

3.     A Predator Becomes More Dangerous When Wounded, by Noam Chomsky, with The Guardian, and published in Countercurrents.org For the US, the primary issue in the Middle East has been, and remains, effective control of its unparalleled energy resources. A US attack on Iran would effectively launch WWIII. The US invasion of Iraq virtually instructed Iran to develop a nuclear deterrent. The message was that the US attacks at will, as long as the target is defenceless. Then again, a predator becomes even more dangerous, and less predictable, when wounded. In desperation to salvage something, the Bush administration might risk even greater disasters. It has created an unimaginable catastrophe in Iraq. It has been unable to establish a reliable client state within, and cannot withdraw without facing the possible loss of control of the Middle East's energy resources.

The assessment is based on the most recent and complete data available, taking into account direct impacts, along with the impacts of feed crop agriculture required for livestock production. The livestock sector emerges as one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global. The findings of this report suggest that it should be a major policy focus when dealing with problems of land degradation, climate change and air pollution, water shortage and water pollution, and loss of biodiversity. Livestock’s contribution to environmental problems is on a massive scale and its potential contribution to their solution is equally large. The impact is so significant that it needs to be addressed with urgency. Major reductions in impact could be achieved at reasonable cost.

1.     A Predator Becomes More Dangerous When Wounded, by Noam Chomsky, with The Guardian, and published in Countercurrents.org For the US, the primary issue in the Middle East has been, and remains, effective control of its unparalleled energy resources. A US attack on Iran would effectively launch WWIII. The US invasion of Iraq virtually instructed Iran to develop a nuclear deterrent. The message was that the US attacks at will, as long as the target is defenceless. Then again, a predator becomes even more dangerous, and less predictable, when wounded. In desperation to salvage something, the Bush administration might risk even greater disasters. It has created an unimaginable catastrophe in Iraq. It has been unable to establish a reliable client state within, and cannot withdraw without facing the possible loss of control of the Middle East's energy resources.

Strengthen Women’s Resistance: Oppose Imperialism’s Intensifying Attacks! Assert Women’s Basic Human Rights!
In Canada, a patriarchal resurgence and ever-more entrenched systemic racism are intensifying the exploitation, oppression, and economic exclusion of working class, (im)migrant, refugee and Indigenous women. We are hard hit by the neo-liberal policies of the Canadian government of liberalization, deregulation and privatization which leave working class women unable to earn a decent income or to access affordable housing, health, and other services. Amidst rising corporate profiteering, government corruption, and military spending, government funding for childcare and women’s programs have been slashed. The insultingly paltry and unjustly distributed $100/month childcare benefit has been a slap in the face for women demanding a genuinely universal national childcare program. (Im)migrant and refugee women face the punitive and exploitative nature of immigration policies such as the Live-in Caregiver Program and unjust deportations. Indigenous women face the ongoing colonization of their land and resources.   Grassroots Women International Women’s Day 2007 Statement

In this connection, it's worth noting that while civilized people have voluntarily agreed to make illegal the Initiation of Physical Force by one human upon another, as in murder, rape, and robbery, no government on earth has yet been held to the same Moral Standard.

4.     A Predator Becomes More Dangerous When Wounded, by Noam Chomsky, with The Guardian, and published in Countercurrents.org For the US, the primary issue in the Middle East has been, and remains, effective control of its unparalleled energy resources. A US attack on Iran would effectively launch WWIII. The US invasion of Iraq virtually instructed Iran to develop a nuclear deterrent. The message was that the US attacks at will, as long as the target is defenceless. Then again, a predator becomes even more dangerous, and less predictable, when wounded. In desperation to salvage something, the Bush administration might risk even greater disasters. It has created an unimaginable catastrophe in Iraq. It has been unable to establish a reliable client state within, and cannot withdraw without facing the possible loss of control of the Middle East's energy resources.

Strengthen Women’s Resistance: Oppose Imperialism’s Intensifying Attacks! Assert Women’s Basic Human Rights!
In Canada, a patriarchal resurgence and ever-more entrenched systemic racism are intensifying the exploitation, oppression, and economic exclusion of working class, (im)migrant, refugee and Indigenous women. We are hard hit by the neo-liberal policies of the Canadian government of liberalization, deregulation and privatization which leave working class women unable to earn a decent income or to access affordable housing, health, and other services. Amidst rising corporate profiteering, government corruption, and military spending, government funding for childcare and women’s programs have been slashed. The insultingly paltry and unjustly distributed $100/month childcare benefit has been a slap in the face for women demanding a genuinely universal national childcare program.

To explain, since "Justice" is the principle of Moral Rightness, its a rational view that to force a human being into submission when that person has neither threatened nor caused harm to others, is both Irrational Enslavement and Morally Unjust. In this connection, it's worth noting that while civilized people have voluntarily agreed to make illegal the Initiation of Physical Force by one human upon another, as in murder, rape, and robbery, no government on earth has yet been held to the same Moral Standard.

Jacquet. and Daniel Pauly, The Sea Around Us Project, The Fisheries Centre, University of British Columbia, 2202 Main Mall, Vancouver, BC, Canada V6T 1Z4 The human appetite for seafood has intensified and so has overfishing and damage to marine ecosystems. Recently, the response to the fisheries crisis has included a considerable effort directed toward raising the seafood awareness of consumers in North America and Europe. The resulting campaigns aim to affect the seafood demand and to lead to a sustainable seafood supply. Though there are indicators of some regional successes, lack of support by the Asian market and the proliferation of self-serving seafood labels are but two of the many significant limitations of these campaigns. This contribution investigates the difficulties and successes of seafood awareness campaigns, as well as the need for indicators of campaign effectiveness.

4.    Letter sent by Grassroots Women to the Global Community Grassroots Women International Women’s Day 2007 Statement
Strengthen Women’s Resistance: Oppose Imperialism’s Intensifying Attacks! Assert Women’s Basic Human Rights!
In Canada, a patriarchal resurgence and ever-more entrenched systemic racism are intensifying the exploitation, oppression, and economic exclusion of working class, (im)migrant, refugee and Indigenous women. We are hard hit by the neo-liberal policies of the Canadian government of liberalization, deregulation and privatization which leave working class women unable to earn a decent income or to access affordable housing, health, and other services. Amidst rising corporate profiteering, government corruption, and military spending, government funding for childcare and women’s programs have been slashed. The insultingly paltry and unjustly distributed $100/month childcare benefit has been a slap in the face for women demanding a genuinely universal national childcare program. (Im)migrant and refugee women face the punitive and exploitative nature of immigration policies such as the Live-in Caregiver Program and unjust deportations. Indigenous women face the ongoing colonization of their land and resources.   Grassroots Women International Women’s Day 2007 Statement
5.     The Crime of War in Iraq , by DR. Charles Mercieca , International Association of Educators for World Peace, Professor Emeritus, Alabama A and M University, Environmental Protection, Human Rights & Disarmament What is the purpose of having rules and regulations when we can disregard them at will at any moment we like? Since the early days of human existence, those that transgressed rules and regulations to the detriment of others always tended to be punished, sooner or later. In order for us to understand the seriousness of such violations, we need to understand properly the significance of laws. In order to do that, we must have a clear concept of the four hierarchical laws of which ascetical writers spoke over the past several centuries. The Crime of War in Iraq

7.     GREAT SHIFT OF POWER, by Triaka Smith, The CONSTITUTION of UNITED DIVERSITY, The New Earth Cooperative
To explain, since "Justice" is the principle of Moral Rightness, its a rational view that to force a human being into submission when that person has neither threatened nor caused harm to others, is both Irrational Enslavement and Morally Unjust. In this connection, it's worth noting that while civilized people have voluntarily agreed to make illegal the Initiation of Physical Force by one human upon another, as in murder, rape, and robbery, no government on earth has yet been held to the same Moral Standard.
