Recommendations concerning the Preamble of the Global Constitution received from Doug Everingham on Thursday, June 9th 2005.
See Doug Everingham file for Papers and participation in several issues.
(as proposed by Doug Everingham)
The peoples of all Nations, in creating an ever closer Earth Government among
them, are resolved to share a peaceful future based on common values. Conscious
of its spiritual and moral heritage, Earth Government is founded on
the indivisible, universal values of human dignity, freedom, equality and
solidarity; it is based on the principles of democracy and the rule of law.
It places the individual at the heart of its activities, by establishing
the Global Community citizenship of Earth Government and by creating
an era of freedom, security and justice.
Earth Government contributes
to the preservation and to the development of these common values while
respecting the diversity of the cultures and traditions of the peoples of
all Nations as well as the national identities of Member Nations and the
organisation of their public authorities at national, regional and local
levels; it seeks to promote balanced and sustainable development and ensures
free movement of persons, goods, services and capital, and the freedom of
establishment. To this end, it is necessary to strengthen the protection
of fundamental rights in the light of changes in society, social progress
and scientific and technological developments by making those rights more
visible in this Constitution.
The Global Constitution reaffirms, with due regard for the powers
and tasks of Earth Government and the principle of subsidiarity, the
rights as they result, in particular, from the constitutional traditions
and international obligations common to Member Nations, the Scale of Social Values, or Scale of Human and Earth Rights,
adopted by Earth Government and by the Global Council of all Nations
and the case law of the Earth Court of Justice of Earth Government and of the
Global Court of Human and Earth Rights. Enjoyment of these rights entails responsibilities
and duties with regard to other persons, to the human community and to future
generations. Earth Government therefore recognises the rights, freedoms
and principles set out hereafter.
We the Peoples of the Global Community are reaffirming faith in the fundamental human rights, in the dignity and
worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and smalll. We the Peoples
implies every individual on Earth. Earth management and good governance is now a priority and a duty of every responsible person
on Earth. We will establish conditions under which justice and
respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained, and we promote
social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom.
The ethical belief, universal values, principles and aspirations of the Global Community will be attained by:
* practicing tolerance and living together in peace and harmony with one another as neighbours,
* promoting the economic and social advancement of all peoples,
* maintaining peace and security in the world by using negotiations and peaceful means,
* finding unity in diversity with all Life,
* establishing the respect for the life-support system of the planet,
* keeping Earth healthy, productive and hospitable for all people and living things, and
* applying the principle that when there is a need to find a solution to a problem or a concern, a sound solution would be to choose a measure or conduct an action, if possible,
which causes reversible damage as opposed to a measure or an action causing an irreversible loss.
* the Global Community today has come to a turning point in history,
and that we are on the threshold of new global order leading to an era of peace, prosperity, justice and harmony;
* there is an interdependence of people, nations and all life;
* humanity's abuse of science and technology has brought the Global Community
to the brink of disaster through the production of weaponry of
mass destruction and to the brink of ecological and social catastrophe;
* the traditional concept of security through military
defense is a total illusion both for the present and for future generations;
* misery and conflicts has caused an ever increasing disparity
between rich and poor;
* we, as Peoples, are conscious of our obligation to posterity to save the Global Community from
imminent and total annihilation;
* the Global Community is One despite the existence of diverse nations, races, creeds, ideologies and cultures,
* the principle of unity in diversity is the basis for a new age when war shall be outlawed and peace prevail;
when the earth's total resources shall be equitably used for human welfare; and when basic human and Earth rights, responsibilities and accountabilities shall
be shared by all without discrimination; and
* the greatest hope for
the survival of life on Earth is the establishment of a democratic Earth
We, citizens of the Global Community, hereby resolve to establish
