Building global communities require understanding of global problems this generation is facing. There are several major problems: conflicts and wars,
no tolerance and compassion for one another, world overpopulation, human activities,
as population increases the respect and value of a human life is in decline,
insufficient protection and prevention for global health, scarcity of resources and drinking water, poverty, Fauna and Flora species disappearing at a fast rate,
global warming and global climate change, global pollution, deforestation, permanent lost of the Earth's genetic heritage, and the destruction of the global life-support systems and the eco-systems of the planet. We need to build global
communities for all life on the planet. We need to build global communities that will manage themselves with the understanding of the above problems.
God Law, Nature Law, the teaching of the Soul of Humanity with the teaching of the prophet are fundamental pillars of our Global Law.
The work of the Global Community, the global civil society, and the determination of government worldwide, make it possible for everyone to comply with the law.
The Global Protection Agency (GPA) enforces the law.
Results from previous Global Dialogues
have showed us that the governance of Earth through global cooperation and
symbiotical relationships was the only possible option for a large population such as the Earth's population, and so, to help
achieve this goal we have developed the Global Constitution
Global Citizens Rights, Responsibility and Accountability Act
to govern ourselves as member nations of Global Community Earth Govewrnment (GCEG).
Building global communities requires a mean to enforce global law that protects all life on Earth.
GCEG Global Protection Agency
will train and lead a global force, bypassing traditional peacekeeping and military bodies such as the United Nations and NATO.
This is a great opportunity for globallateralism.
The Global Protection Agency (GPA) is leading a group of people in the world who participate in:
a) peacekeeping or peacemaking mission;
b) creating global ministries for:
1. the policy response to the consequences of the global warming, and
2. the development of strategies to adapt to the consequences of the unavoidable climate change.
c) enforcing global law;
d) saving the Earth's genetic heritage;
e) keeping the world healthy and at peace;
f) protecting the global life-support systems and the eco-systems of the planet;
g) dealing with the impacts of: global poverty, lack of drinking water and food, global warming and the global climate change, threat to security, conflicts and wars,
lack of good quality soil for agriculture, polluted air, water and land, overcrownded cities, more new and old diseases out of control, widespread drugs, human and Earth rights
abuses, world overpopulation, and lack of resources;
h) broadening the traditional focus of the security of states to include both the security of people as well as that of the
planet. Global security policies include:
* every person on Earth has a right to a secure existence, and all states have an obligation to protect those rights
* prevention of conflicts and wars; identification, anticipation, and resolving conflicts before they become armed confrontations. The Earth
Court of Justice will help here.
* military force is not a legitimate political instrument
* weapons of mass destruction are not legitimate instruments of national defence
* eliminate all weapons of mass destruction from all nations and have inspectors verifying progress to that effect
* all nations should sign and ratify the conventions to eliminate nuclear, chemical and biological weapons
* the production and trade in arms should be listed as a criminal act against humanity; this global ministry will introduce a
Convention on the curtailment of the arms trade, a provision for a mandatory Arms Register and the prohibition of the financing or
subsidy of arms exports by governments
* the development of military capabilities is a potential threat to the security of people and all life on Earth; the ministry
will make the demilitarization of global politics a high priority.
* anticipating and managing crises before they escalate into armed conflicts and wars
* maintaining the integrity of the environment and global life-support systems
* managing the environmental, economic, social, political and military conditions that threatened the security of people and all life on the planet
* over the past decades and even now today, all Five Permanent Members of the United Nations Security Council (mostly the United States,
Russia and Britain) were responsible for selling weapons and war equipment. These three nations are required to give back to the Global Community
an amount of 8 trillion dollars (American) as a payment for the immense damage they have caused in the world.
They have created a culture of violence throughout the world. They are nation bullies, nation predators. They are responsible for economic mismanagement, ethnic tensions,
crimes, drug abuse, high unemployment, urban stress, worldwide poverty, and pressures on natural resources. Most conflicts in the world
are direct legacies of cold war power politics, senseless politics. Other conflicts were caused by the end of the cold war and the collapse
of old regimes. Other factors have combined to increase tension: religious, economical, political, and ethnic aspects.
The dollar fine is to be administered by Global Parliament.
In the past, security was thought as better accomplished through military means. Expanding the military capabilities and forming alliances
with other nations were the only way to 'win'. Today wars are unlikely to produce winners. The Global Community is all over the planet. Ethnic
groups are everywhere. Some say there are more Italians in Montreal, Canada that there are in Italy. So we would fight our own people? Wars truly
make no sense! The world is too crowded and too small nowadays! And weapons too lethal! So security cannot be achieved through the military. The
only job the military should be asked to do today is to protect the global life-support systems. These systems have the highest priority
on the Scale of Human and Earth Rights and are certainly more important than any of the other rights on the Scale including security. Simply because without life there is
no other right possible. Without Oxygen there is no life! Without clean water there is no life! So protect life on Earth at all costs.
Wars are the biggest threat to life and the ecosystem of the planet. Primordial human rights come next on the Scale of Human and Earth Rights. Without a shelter life will still exist in some places but is not possible in cold place.
There are many related aspects of the global life-support systems:
* global warming
* Ozone layer
* wastes of all kind including nuclear and release of radiation
* climate change
* species of the fauna and flora becoming extinct
* losses of forest cover and of biological diversity
* the capacity for photosynthesis
* the water cycle
* food production systems
* genetic resources
* chemicals produced for human use and not found in nature and, eventually, reaching the environment with impacts on Earth's waters, soils,
air, and ecology
So security must be achieved by other means than wars. We might as well shelved the war industry from humanity right now and that means phasing
out all nuclear, biological, chemical weapons right now. No waiting! That also means having inspectors verifying the phasing out in
all nations of the world, and not just in some Middle East country. The nature of global security has changed since the rise of the Global Community.
Security used to be about the protection of the state and its boundaries, people, institutions and values from an outside threat.
The Global Community emphasizes as a priority the prohibition of external interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states. Today the security of
people within the Global Community is just as important as the security of states. Citizens must be secure. The Global Community is just as important as the security
and life of citizens and states.
There are many threats to security other than the threats to the global life-support systems and threat caused by weapons of mass destruction and the threats to
the sovereignty of a state, and they include:
* the proliferation of conventional small arms
* the terrorizing of civilian populations by domestic groups
* gross violations of human and Earth rights
Global security can only be achieved if it can be shared by all peoples and through global co-operation, based on principles as explained
in the Global Constitution such as justice, human dignity, and equity for all and for the good of all. All people and states
are protected by the Global Community.
In connection between human well-being and a sound environment, Earth rights are ecological rights and the rights that human beings have in protecting their global life-support systems.
Earth rights are those rights that demonstrate the connection between human well-being and a sound environment. They include individuals and global
communities human rights and the rights to a clean environment, and participation in development decisions. We define ecological rights as those rights of the ecosystem of the Earth beyond human purpose. They are those rights that protect and
preserve the ecological heritage of the Earth for future generations. The Earth Court of Justice guarantees ecological rights in its Statute. The Court guarantees also the rights to a safe environment and an environment free
from environmental degradation.
Earth rights are the rights to life on Earth.
The Global Protection Agency provides leadership for training of other countries' citizens who would like to participate in peacekeeping and Earth security
so that we have a ready cadre of people who are trained and equipped and organised and have communications that they can work with each other.
The overall size of the force, or who would pay for it, have not been discussed, but the idea has been raised with countries in Europe and Asia.
As well, there are questions about how many nations would sign up if such a force were under the control of GCEG.
To act as a global policing force, as the GPA aspires to do, many foundations must be laid, especially regarding the move from wielding power derived from
GCEG to legitimate global leadership. There are many required characteristics that are prerequisite for legitimate leadership:
1. Legitimate leadership is built upon trust. Those who are led must largely believe that the leader is committed to integrity, honesty, and transparent inquiry into problems. The leader’s actions must align with his words
2. Legitimate leadership rests upon checks and balances, which are necessary to ensure power is not corrupted.
3. Legitimate leadership is an act of service. Those in power must show a primary interest in the good of the collective ahead of their self-interest. In this way, true leaders are mission-centered rather than self-centered.
4. Legitimate leadership empowers others appropriately rather than concentrating power disproportionately. In other words, true leaders produce more leaders and empower them as situations demand.
5. Legitimate leadership is visionary, carrying the torch of a possible future.
6. Legitimate leadership is willing to lead by example, including following a foundation of ethics, performing more than one’s share of work, and making sacrifices where appropriate.
7. Legitimate leadership is compassionately fierce when something undermines the good of the whole.
In a company this might mean the CEO fires a slacking employee. In a city, the police may jail a murderer. On a global level, this might even mean
arresting those breaking global law.
The defence function of a leader requires that he safeguard the good of the whole by whatever the most skillful means are to accomplish that defence.
While that is not a comprehensive catalog of leadership prerequisites, I do think those few requirements are foundational and relatively unquestionable.
Without at least a solid foundation of those requirements, the GPA’s actions among nation-states will remain those of a unilateralist leader rather than a global leader.
We will be, and should be, legitimated in the role of a global leader among nation-states and validated as an enforcer of global law.
GCEG offers a few recommendations for actions that would strengthen and legitimate the GPA’s role as a true global leader by gradually creating an international structure
that better safeguards the whole than we can ever do now as a unilateralist leader.
The GPA recommendations:
1. Ban military action in all parts of the world;
2. Lead the way in creating legitimate power for Global Parliament, subjecting ourselves and multinational corporations to taxation that generates money for programs
that are focused on world betterment and world problems. As a mark of our global leadership, we should commit a greater percentage of our resources to this effort
than any other organization.
3. Hold ourselves to a high standard of compliance around global treaties that aim for collective benefit and the redress of economic, environmental, military,
and political problems. Our adherence should be exemplary. Or, if we truly question the merit of a global accord, we should lead the way in creating agreements
that even better serve the global interest rather than simply ignoring or undermining the existing attempts.
4. Exert strong global leadership on multinational solutions to pressing health, environmental, and other problems. We should propose innovative new solutions and show leadership in carrying them out, especially in areas such as clean energy development.
5. Take seriously the process of coming clean by exposing corporate interests in politics, lobbying by powerful organizations,
subsidies of fringe military groups, etc. When our global government officials commit to be honest and transparent, a much deeper foundation of international trust
will be built.
As we enact global law, we will begin to take on a much deeper kind of global leadership, one that earns more respect than envy and more gratitude than hatred, one that
can catapult the whole planet forward into a future where war is no longer thinkable between nation-states and a legitimate and beneficial global government is able to cope
with global problems.
I believe that there is no greater task in the world today than for GCEG to proceed through the maturation of its leadership, emerging from a more self-interested
adolescence as a global leader into a nobler adulthood. We have the potential to act as a torchbearer for a better tomorrow. Do we heed the call? I hope this message has convinced
at least a few people that the question of how to proceed with that maturation is of far deeper significance than the reforming of the United Nations. I thus pray that we move
with wisdom, grace, clarity, and love in the days, years, and even decades ahead.
