Political systems of nations dont have to be democracies.
December 2002 Newsletter: 2E
November 2002 Newsletter: 2M

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 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. On the other hand, representatives to Earth Government 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 Earth Government) that representatives to Earth Government 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 Earth Government.

In order to elect representatives to Earth Government it is proposed the following:

A. Each individual government in the world will administer the election of representatives to Earth Government with an NGO and/or members of Earth Government be allowed to verify all aspects of the process to the satisfaction of all parties involved.
B. Representatives be elected every five years to form a new Earth Government.
C. It is proposed here that there will be one elected representative per 1,000,000 people. A population of 100 million people will elect 100 representatives. This process will create a feeling of belonging and participating to the affairs of the Earth Community and Earth Government.
D. A typical community of a million people does not have to be bounded by a geographical or political border. It can be a million people living in many different locations all over the world. The Global Community is thus more fluid and dynamic. We need to let go the archaic ways of seeing a community as the street where I live and contained by a border. Many conflicts and wars will be avoided by seeing ourselves as people with a heart, a mind and a Soul, and as part of a community with the same.
E. Earth population is now 6.114 billion people. If all representatives had been elected this year there would be 6,114 representatives to form Earth Government. They would be the Legislative elected body of Earth Government. They would participate in some ways in choosing the Executive and Judiciary bodies of Earth Government.

It our experience and knowledge that by-laws, regulations, standards will not save a community and all life unless the resources are managed for the long run in mind. Global warming is an example of how bad things got to be.

Let us look at our history as a species, the human species, the millions of years of evolution that got us here. How have we survived? We fought predators around us looking for a human being to snack on. We lived in cave for protection and security. We survived together. When a predator got too close to our group, did we ask Uncle Sam, Uncle Sam is a fictutious name, did we ask Uncle Sam to defend the group just by himself? By himself Uncle Sam would have been the predator's dinner. NO. The whole group fought the predator and we killed it, and probably ate it too. We survived because we worked together to protect the group. We are who we are today because we lived as a community.

So why do we give resources to Uncle Sam? Where is the logic? Where is our sense of self survival as a community gone? What happen to it? Is it not burried lock, stock, and barrel under a culture, in a way of life and of doing things, that is counterproductive? During two global dialogues, the Earth Community Organization has developed the Scale of Human and Earth Rights to get us and the rest of the world back on track. The Scale tells us what is the most important, and less important. It was designed on values that are part of our history as human beings and on values that have kept us alive throughout the millions of years. We have to correct for the wrong way taken by our society and governing bodies.

The ecosystems of the Earth, the global life-support systems, have to be given the highest priority, the greatest importance, because that is where they sit on the Scale of Human and Earth Rights. The rights of the community to life, clean air, freshwater, a healthy environment, security, is the most important right on the Scale. It is a primordial human right. The right of the property owner, Uncle Sam, is much lower on the Scale, near the bottom of it.

In most places, Uncle Sam is a developer, any corporation from a logging company to a food packaging company, even Natives maybe called Uncle Sam, even nation governments maybe called Uncle SAM. They lost their way.

History can help us understand ourselves and what is happening to us, and our impact upon the rest of the world, only when we look at ourselves on the grand scale of time. As members of families, we note the passing generations. Historians traditionally deal in centuries. For the most part we are unaware of the deep rhythms that lie beneath naturally occurring events, rhythms that must be measured in millennia, or in millions of years, or in tens of millions of years. We have a huge effect upon all life on Earth and the fabric of the planet itself yet we are vaguely aware of the rhythms. From an engineering point of view that is totally unacceptable. If Earth was seen as a spaceship whith specific life-support systems, to think of those rhythms would be of outmost importance. The knowledge and understanding of the rhythms would determine our policies now, today. Even though our lives are so brief, a million years should be a proper unit of political time. Politicians would become in a way engineers who can think not only a week at a time but can also think ahead a million years. The world needs 'engineer politicians' with the highest integrity of judgment.

The Glass Bubble concept of 'a Global Community' was brought forward during Global 2000 as a fundamental concept to define the working of global communities of the New Age Civilization of the 3rd Millennium.

Wherever you go, you are inside 'a global community'. Every thing, every living creature there, interacts one upon the other. Influences inter-weave and are responsible for causes and effects. Worlds within worlds orbiting in and out of one another's space, having their being.

To interact knowledgeably within one's global community has to be taught ~ especially to urban children. It has to be brought to them very clearly all life forms interact and depend upon other life forms for survival. They need to know reasons why ignorance of nature's law causes such damage, and why working in harmony with nature produces such good results. The world is already witnessing effects of global warming, itself being caused by ignorance and indifference of nature's law.

The concept of the Glass Bubble was extended to include the planet Earth and all the global communities contained therein.

We can no longer perceive ourselves as a People who could survive alone and a People who does not need anyone else. We belong and depend to this much larger group, that of The Global Community. The 21st Century will see limitless links and interrelationships with The Global Community.

One could think of a typical community of a million people that does not have to be bounded by a geographical or political border. It can be a million people living in many different locations all over the world. The Global Community is thus more fluid and dynamic. We need to let go the archaic ways of seeing a community as the street where I live and contained by a border. Many conflicts and wars will be avoided by seeing ourselves as people with a heart, a mind and a Soul, and as part of a community with the same.

Every single human being must deal responsibly with the affairs going on in his (her) own 'global community' ~ when a person takes personal responsibility for his own affairs ~ he becomes empowered as a person. He can then reach beyond his own property and family, and help to work with others living in and around, even a part of the local community he lives in ~ the villages, the town community, the surrounding territory, and so on.

The key is personal responsibility. Therefore the individual is the important element, one who takes responsibility for his community. This individual cares about jobs, homes, streets, the welfare and success of his community.

When a group of ordinary people realized they, personally, will make the changes they need in their fields, in their village. They can then find ways to bring these changes for all. There is a wisdom in the ways of very humble people that needs to be used. Every humble person deserves to have ideas respected, the courage to develop his own life for the better and for the good of all. Sound solutions to help manage and sustain Earth will very likely be found this way. Everyone can help assess the needs of the planet now and propose sound solutions for its proper management, present and future.

Perhaps now we should introduce some important members of The Global Community: the global civil society, the Earth Community, the human family, all different ways of expressing the same people. Most of the time many politicians representing their citizens at the United Nations have no knowledge, experience, and understanding of global problems. They seek advise from others, and these 'others' are always memebers of the global civil society. Yet politicians make global decisions or the lack of them during meetings. Politicians become actors on the world scene. Actors taken jobs they are not always qualified to take in reality. They make decisions and they dont understand consequences. In effect, politicians are threatening the security of all people and all life on Earth.

The global civil society is made of people from all aspects of life who have a greater understanding of the problem whatever it may be. The global civil society is the mind, heart and Soul of humanity, the human family. They maybe NGOs, businesses, agencies, scientists and professionals, religious groups, or other groups. They should have a voting right during all meetings of the General Assembly and Security Council of the United Nations. They are given an important status in Earth Government.

During Global 2000 and Global Dialogue 2002 we have found why each member of this Global Community is important ~ and how all work together to create a good place to live. Now is time to assign rights to these working communities. What rights should be assigned to 'a global community' and to The Global Community? All life on Earth is part of communities and, therefore, every human being has a responsibility toward all lifeforms.

To determine rights requires an understanding of needs and reponsibilities and their importance. The Scale of Human and Earth and the Charter of the Earth Community are the best guidance for continuing this process. The Scale shows social values in order of importance and so will help us understand the rights of a community. What are the universal needs of a person, family, a community?

All families need shelter, food, parents, a child (see Article in October Newsletter 'The world overpopulation problem resolved along with several other global issues') , language, body of knowledge, certain skills, a source of income. Security of the home is an important aspect for any family and the global community it belongs to. Essential elements and concerns of a community were listed in this Newsletter. Please read 'Biophysical and Economic Assessment of Mount Benson and surroundings in the context of a Vancouver Island Urban Master Plan'. These needs raise the question of interacting universal responsibilities. In terms of parenthood, parents must raised their children mentally and physically healthy. It is a responsibility to do so. Which also means each local community must have an educational system to help parents rasie the child.

On the Scale, Primordial Human Rights are those that individuals have by virtue of their very existence as human beings: to live, eat, drink fresh water, breath clean air, security, and have shelter. Human rights represent an ideal and a supreme goal which can give meaning to life in society. Throughout the history of humanity, the rights of human beings have been defined and enshrined with reference to the values of the dignity of each individual and of freedom, equality and justice. These values are universal. Earth Government has accepted and enshrined them into its own ways of behaving and dealing with all peoples. Cultures and societies differ so much that their expression takes varying forms, but diversity does not affect the foundation of inalienable values constituted by human and Earth rights. Each individual is recognized as a representative of humankind. Human dignity resides in each of us, and this dignity must be recognized and respected by all.

As universal values, equality, justice and freedoms are concerned with our ability to decide, to choose values and to participate in the making of laws, and they are dependent on the recognition of other people. These values forbid any form of discrimination on the grounds of race, nationality, sex, religion, age or mother tongue. By accepting both values of freedom and equality we can achieve justice. One can be answerable for one's actions in a 'just' way only if judgements are given in the framework of democratically established laws and courts. Social justice is another universal value to which Earth Community aspires and accepts as a universal value. Social justice consists in sharing wealth with a view to greater equality and the equal recognition of each individual's merits. All persons within a given society deserve equal access to goods and services that fulfill basic human needs.
