We define Earth governance 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 New Age Civilization,

(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.


Global 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.


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 Charter of the Global Community 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 Charter 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 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.

The Global Community needs a global democratic leadership based on the Global Community and able to take responsibility and leadership, a stronger world order, more efficient and more democratic.

Today, 65 % of the world population lives in democracies than dictatorships. This trend is increasing as more people want to live in peace. Because of a rapid transition to democracy, several of these democracies have not had time to develop strong democratic institutions and cultural changes. Many changes occur during a transition: written constitutions, legal reforms, multiparty elections, a free press, and an independent judiciary. but all changes take time to grow in people's new way of life.

Earth has long been waiting for a truly global governing body based on universal values, human rights, global concepts and democracy. The Global Community might as well be created now, there is no longer any reason to wait. We are the Global Community and we will form the Global Community. Earth management is a priority and is a duty by every responsible person.

The Global Community will now be formed, and we want you to reflect on future effects of such an event on the history of humanity. Certainly one will expect extraordinary changes: a reorganizing of human activities all over the planet; participation by all societies on the planet in solving local and global problems; new alliances forming; north meeting with south (eradication of poverty will be the price to pay to get votes from the south) in order to gather more votes within the newly created Global Community to satisfy power struggles between European, Asian and Western countries; adoption of democratic principles, human rights, global concepts, and universal values by every human being; expansion of consciousness; gathering and coordinating of forces to resolve social and political problems in a peaceful way (no more conflicts or wars); gathering and coordinating of forces (technologies, scientific research, exploration work, human resources, etc.) to resolve global problems such as global climate, environment, availability of resources, poverty, employment, etc. Thousands more changes!

Let your heart and mind reflect on 'the good' of a democratically elected Global Community. Everyone is part of the Global Community by birth and therefore everyone has a right to vote. Everyone should be given a chance to vote. If you live in a developing country this time you will have a vote, human rights like all of us, you will be part of the Global Community, and we will stand by you. Decisions will be made democratically. You will finally have a voice and a friend, many friends, within the Global Community. Your lives have values just like all of ours.
