Peace amongst nations means effective Earth governance and management.


Earth governance and management are related issues and must be discussed together. They are also related to the sovereignty issue which will be defined here.

Global Community criteria for sovereignty:
  • a global community is in place
  • the land and its natural resources are just enough to live a sustainable life and for a healthy living
  • the community governs its owns affairs as per the Scale of Human and Earth Rights, Global Law, Global Constitution, and the protection of the environment and of the global life-support systems
  • a symbiotical relationship exists between the citizens and the Global Community
  • a democracy based on the fact that land, the air, water, oil, minerals, and all other natural resources within the community rightly belongs to the community along with the Global Community, and that the Earth is the birthright of all life
  • Earth management and taxation of all Earth natural resources

Without this criteria no one can claim ownership - sovereignty - of land. No one can own an area of land. Like we have explained in another article on sovereignty, putting a flag on the Moon does not give you ownership. Our first explorers did not own the land just because they stepped foot on North America. Just because you put a flag on Mount Everest means you own the mountain. You dont! If someday a colony is set up on the Moon will that mean the people making up the colony owns the Moon? No it does not! The people of the colony could say they own an area large enough for their own survival, a sustainable living. Not the entire Moon. Similarly for any land on Earth. Somewhat like the colony on the Moon would be taken care of by the nation on Earth. So the Inuit people can only claim to own a small area around their communities. This means that people from all over the world could come to settle a community in any area on the planet. On Earth there is also a vast array of different life-form communities such as the polar bears, caribou, Arctic foxes, seals, beluga whales, northern fulmars, and those communities of organisms that inhabit the sea floor like brittle stars, worms, zooplankton, microalgae, bivalves and some of the lesser known sea spiders. And there are millions more. Everyone of those global communities have an Earth right of ownership where they live and of all its natural resources. It is their birthright. They dont express themselves in English, but we understand them. Human beings have a moral obligation to protect and conserve the biodiversity of life on Earth.

The Earth management of any land is an asset to the Global Community. The Global Constitution shows us how it can be done with Global Law, the Earth Court of Justice, and how the Global Protection Agency (GPA) and the Agency of Global Police (AGP) can protect the territory. Global Community Arrest Warrants can be issued to anyone breaking Global Law. The GCNA Emergency, Rescue and Relief Centre is vigilant and quick in helping all life in need of help. Fot the protection of those global communities we will need to create several biodiversity zones around the planet by way of Earth rights and taxation of natural resources.

The Global Community is defined around a given territory, that territory being the planet as a whole, as well as a specific population, which is the Global Community. The Global Community has the power to make the laws of the land and to make the rules for the territory of the Earth. Global Law has been and continue to be researched and developed for this purpose. We are all members of the Global Community. We all have the duty to protect the rights and welfare of all species and all people. No humans have the right to encroach on the ecological space of other species and other people, or treat them with cruelty and violence. All life species, humans and cultures, have intrinsic worth. They are subjects, not commodities, not objects of manipulation or ownership. No humans have the right to own other species, other people or the knowledge of other cultures through patents and other intellectual property rights. Defending biological and cultural diversity is a duty of all people. Diversity is an end in itself, a value, a source of richness both material and cultural. All members of the Global Community including all humans have the right to food and water, to safe and clean habitat, to security of ecological space. These rights are natural rights, they are birthrights given by the fact of existence on Earth and are best protected through global community rights and global commons. They are not given by states or corporations, nor can they be extinguished by state or corporate action. No state or corporation has the right to erode or undermine these natural rights or enclose the commons that sustain all through privatisation or monopoly control.

We define Earth governance Previous work on Earth governance and management as the traditions and institutions by which authority in a country is exercised for the common good. This includes:

(i)     the process by which those in authority are selected, monitored and replaced,
(ii)     the capacity of the government to effectively manage its resources and implement sound policies with respect to the Scale of Human and Earth Rights and the belief, values, principles and aspirations of the Global Community,
(iii)     the respect of citizens and the state for the institutions that govern economic, environment, Earth resources, and social interactions among them,
(iv)     the freedom of citizens to find new ways for the common good, and
(v)     the acceptance of responsibility and accountability for our ways.


The quality of Earth governance is reflected in each local community worldwide. The Global Community will show leadership by creating a global civil ethic within the Global Community. The Global Constitution describes all values needed for good global governance: mutual respect, tolerance, respect for life, justice for all everywhere, integrity, and caring. The Scale of Human and Earth Rights has become an inner truth and the benchmark of the millennium in how everyone sees all values. The Scale encompasses the right of all people to:

*     the preservation of ethnicity
*     equitable treatment, including gender equity
*     security
*     protection against corruption and the military
*     earn a fair living, have shelter and provide for their own welfare and that of their family
*     peace and stability
*     universal value systems
*     participation in governance at all levels
*     access the Earth Court of Justice for redress of gross injustices
*     equal access to information


The Global Constitution is itself a statement for the fundamental rights of all citizens, ensuring the rights of minorities, one vote per million people from each state government. When member nations vote during any meeting they are given the right of one vote per million people in their individual country. That is the most fundamental community right, the right of the greatest number of people, 50% plus one, and that is the 'new democracy' of the Global Community.

Governance of the Earth will make the rule of arbitrary power--economic (WTO, FTAA, EU), political, or military (NATO)-- subjected to the rule of law within global society, the human family. Justice is for everyone and is everywhere, a universal constant.

The Global Community has no intention of changing the status and privileges of state governments. In fact, state governments become primary members of the Global Community. Global governance can only be effective within the framework of a world government or world federalism. There is no such thing as global governance through the work of a few international organizations such as the WTO, the EU, or the United Nations dictating to the rest of the world. These organizations are heading in the wrong direction and are causing conflicts between nations, doing away with democracy, increasing the gap between rich and poor, and creating a culture of violence worldwide, terrorism being a small example of what they can do.

The Global Community allows people to take control of their own lives. The Global Community was built from a grassroots process with a vision for humanity that is challenging every person on Earth as well as nation governments. The Global Community has a vision of the people working together building a new civilization including a healthy and rewarding future for the next generations. Global cooperation brings people together for a common future for the good of all.

Earth governance does not imply a lost of state sovereignty and territorial integrity. A nation government exists within the framework of an effective Global Community protecting common global values and humanity heritage. Earth governance gives a new meaning to the notions of territoriality, and non-intervention in a state way of life, and it is about protecting the cultural heritage of a state. Diversity of cultural and ethnic groups is an important aspect of Earth governance.

Earth governance is a balance between the rights of states with rights of people, and the interests of nations with the interests of the Global Community, the human family, the global civil society.

Earth governance is about the rights of states to self-determination in the global context of the Global Community rather than the traditional context of a world of separate states.

Although the Global Community ensures state governments that it will obey the principle of non-intervention in domestic affairs, it will also stand for the rights and interests of the people within individual states in which the security of people is extensively endangered. A global consensus to that effect will be agreed upon by all nation states.

Effective Earth governance requires a greater understanding of what it means to live in a more crowded, interdependent humanity with finite resources and more pollution threatening the global life-support systems. The Global Community has no other choice but to work together at all levels. The collective power is needed to create a better world.

Governance of the Earth will make the rule of arbitrary power--economic (G8 Summit, WTO, FTAA, EU), political (UN), or military (U.S.A. and NATO)-- subjected to the rule of Global Law within the global civil society, the human family. Justice is for everyone and is everywhere, a universal constant. Earth governance does not imply a lost of state sovereignty and territorial integrity. A nation government can exists within the framework of an effective Global Community Global Community Earth Government protecting common global values and humanity heritage.

Diversity of cultural and ethnic groups is an important aspect of Earth governance. Earth governance is a balance between the rights of states with rights of people, and the interests of nations with the interests of the the Global Community, the human family, the global civil society. Earth governance is about the rights of states to self-determination in the global context of the Global Community rather than the traditional context of a world of separate states. Although the Global Community ensures state governments that it will obey the principle of non-intervention in domestic affairs, it will also stand for the rights and interests of the people within individual states in which the security of people is extensively endangered. A global consensus to that effect will be agreed upon by all Member Nations.

The political system of an individual country does not have to be a democracy. Political rights of a country belong to that country alone. Democracy is not to be enforced by anyone and to anyone or to any global community. Every community can and should choose the political system of their choice with the understanding of the importance of such a right on the Scale of Human and Earth Rights . On the other hand, representatives to the Global Community must be elected democratically in every part of the world. An individual country may have any political system at home but the government of that country will have to ensure (and allow verification by the Global Community) that representatives to the Global Community have been elected democratically. This way, every person in the world can claim the birth right of electing a democratic government to manage Earth: the rights to vote and elect representatives to form the the Global Community.

Responsible and accountable government and global citizens is what humanity needs. Acountability in business and trade is an obligation. The Global Community deserves nothing less.
