A working Global Parliament Constitution is the only way for us all to guarantee essential services, Justice, and protection to every home. Global Parliament is not a World Government or Earth Government. No! It is the Federation of Global Governments. Global Parliament and its Constitution were researched and developed from fundamental principles as opposed to kitchen recipe types of Constitution that follow a set of instructions for a world parliament of some kind. Some of those principles we developed are the Global Community and the Scale of Global Rights. That is what differentiates most our proposal from others. The Federation and its Global Parliament operate as per those principles. The definition of the Global Community concept is truly the 21st century "philosophy of life" framework, some called it the religion of the third millennium, others called it the politics of the future generations now.
Global Parliament primary goal and focus include only a few essential aspects. Global Parliament Constitution itself gives the highest priority to the following essential aspects of life within civil society:
* essential servicesto manage the needs of the Peoples of Member States.
These four aspects are a part of the Global Movement to Help of the Global Community. From now on we serve the people of all nations, all life on Earth. Each Global Government is made more responsible and accountable to the people of member nations within the region where it operates. Essential services to the people of each member nation are now the most important global rights on the Scale of Global Rights and are protected by the Global Protection Agency (GPA) of each member nation.
This Movement is described here. First the meaning of the Global Community expression was defined back in 1985. All Global Citizens are a part of this Global Community and have accepted the Criteria of the Global Citizenship. We are all volunteer soldiers of the Global Community Peace Movement.
This Global Movement to Help offers Essential Services to serve the people of all nations, all life on Earth. As a first step to getting help, all nations can and should approve the first three sections on the Scale of Global Rights. The approval would supersede the political and physical borders of participating member nations. The approval would mean politics and justice without borders only concerning those three sections, i.e essential services. The Global Protection Agency (GPA) would have the approval from all member nations to give immediate help, bypassing normal government protocols. Somewhat like an emergency unit but at the global level. That is what those first three sections on the Scale of Global Rights mean. They represent an efficient and immediate emergency response to help.
First, participating member nations need to give their approval to the GPA. The GPA is a global organization much like the World Trade Organization (WTO) for trade between nations, the World Health Organization (WHO) for health, or the European Union, North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), South American Community of Nations (SACON) for trade and economics. The GPA offers an efficient emergency response to help. The GPA is a short term solution, an immediate and efficient response to help. There are also long term solutions. As with the short term solution, the most significant long term solution is also related to the Scale of Global Rights. The Scale was entrenched is Global Parliament Constitution and is thus the fundamental guide to Global Law. Now the Scale of Global Rights is a long term solution and is also a part of the Global Movement to Help of the Global Community. The Scale was designed to help all life on Earth. What would be preferable is that nations unite amongst themselves to help. And that is our reason for proposing the formation of the Federation of Global Governments.
Over time, we have seen the creation of the United Nations, the European Union, the South American Community of Nations, and the North American Free Trade Agreement. Except for the UN, these organizations are mainly concerned with trade and economics.
The Global Community offers a more meaningful union in the form of nine or more Global Governments. For instance the South American Community of Nations can be a Global Government by simply accepting Global Parliament's Constitution as a way of dealing between member nations. A Global Government is concerned not only with economics and trade, but also with the environment, health, agriculture, education, energy, food, social, cultural and many other essential aspects.
The Federation of Global Governments is the place of meeting between Global Governments.
The very first step of Global Parliament, and maybe the only one for several decades ahead of us, would be the approval of essential services amongst the participating member nations. The Global Community has researched and developed such services and listed them here. All of them are already in operation on a small scale. We want each Global Government to take a larger share of responsibility of the specific region where it operates, and be more accountable to the people of that region. And we want a Global Government to be made of wealthy nations as well as nations in need of help. Be compassionate. Each Global Government is obliged to offer Essential Services to the people of its member nations.
Over the past several decades, the Global Community along with Global Parliament, have promoted a just and fair global government. The United Nations (UN) organization does not offer such global service to all Peoples. It is not a government. It is not a democratic institution. It has no power to legislate, protect and offer essential services. There is no Justice possible coming from the UN. The Five Permanents Members are the only rule of law. There are themselves subsidized by corporate rulers, lobbyists with vested interests in keeping things the way they are now. There are no change in sight because they cannot change themselves. We must let go the UN. It is a 20th Century WWII organization that can truly make things work for only 5% of the world nations. Staying with the UN certainly means there will not be a 22nd Century to live for most people on Earth. The world needs a 21st Century organization able to manage Earth and bring hope in every home.
Global Parliament is the only possible and practical solution to our world. We know how everything work, and we know what to do to make it work for us all. We do volunteer work for humanity. We do 'soft activism' work. Global Parliament Constitution shows us how to operate our organization. We follow Global Law as shown in the Constitution. All those who do volunteer work for us must become familliar with it and become 'global citizens'. You are required to read about the Criteria of the Global Community Citizenship. Once you are sure you understand the Criteria, then you are required to live a life as per the Criteria. You do not need to let go the citizenship you already have. No! You can still be a citizen of any nation on Earth. But you are a better human being as you belong also to the Global Community, and you have now higher values to live a life, to sustain yourself and all life on the planet.
We do not relate in any way with the United Nations. We are here to replace it. For several decades the Global Community has tried very hard to reform the United Nations. It has become clear that the United Nations promotes a culture of waste, mismanagement and corruption, and that it cannot reform itself. Today, the only logical, most equitable and sustainable alternative, is to replace it with the Global Community. The Scale of Global Rights is our fundamental principle for development.
