Note to the reader:
The September 2019 Newsletter was based on the articles, letters, reports, research papers, discussions and global dialogues, and messages written by author(s) whose work were published in monthly Newsletters of years since 1985. All published work can be found in the Global Dialogue Proceedings (check link http://globalcommunitywebnet.com/GIMProceedings/). Follow the Proceedings sections, and you will find the actual authors lists, with their papers and all references. Global Community Media is a way to communicate workable sound solutions to problems arising in the world. Let us share our problems and workable sound solutions. Sharing information is a necessity to all life and humanity's survival. Our world is changing fast before our eyes, and we must react quickly and hard to protect all life on Earth. No hesitation! Right now and no waiting! Life on the planet is our first priority. We must protect it at all costs. We, global citizens, fight to protect life on Earth for this generation and the next ones. We are the defenders of the environment and the global life-support systems. We know who the beasts are, and how they destroy the living on our planet. We have rallied together all over the world to protect our home, Earth. Just so you all know we don't pay anyone, and we don't pay expenses. We do volunteer work for humanity. We expect volunteers to be responsible and accountable of all their actions. We do soft activism work. We do not have a copyright research expert to do this work. In order to create a harmonious and compassionate Global Civilizational State , and to protect our planetary environment, the global life-support systems, we want to help you concerning all issues, and you may become a volunteer yourself. Check our volunteer page at: http://globalcommunitywebnet.com/GPA/gpahelpsyou.htm
It is impossible within the scope of this paper to describe, compare, and evaluate all past and present civilizations, and conclude that "A successful Global Civilizational State for all Life" would have the following distinguishing characteristics. Nevertheless, let us see what can be found within the context of today civilizations, what are possible surviving solutions for life on Earth, and even attempt to promote a system of global governance consisting of a more meaningful world union in the form of nine or more Global Governments and Global Parliament.
Human history stretches through generations, and is the history of civilizations. Civilization and culture both refer to the overall way of life of a people, and involve the values, beliefs, norms, institutions, social structures, and modes of thinking to which successive generations in a given society. The composition and shapes of civilizations change over time, the cultures of peoples interact and overlap. A short list of values humans have developed over time to survive as a species are shown here.
People have shared a few fundamental values and institutions throughout history, which may explain some constants in human behavior but it cannot explain history, which consists of changes in human behavior.
If the term civilization is elevated to what is common to humanity as a whole then the largest cultural groupings of people would be a single Global Civilizational State, that is a variety of cultures, of peoples, of religious worlds, of historical traditions, and of historically formed attitudes.
The development and evolution of the West are in large part the factors which enabled the West to take the lead in modernizing itself and non-Western societies. These factors were truly concepts, practices, and institutions have been more prevalent in the West than in non-Western civilizations. Over time, characteristics of Western civilization have been defined by religion and moral principles, human rights, language, ancestry, history, ethnic groups, customs and laws, and also by maintaining a meaningful independent existence, and ways of life. America is the distinct core-state civilization of the West. Inevitably, the fate of the United States within the West grouping of states depends upon Americans asserting strongly once more their commitment to Western civilization and today, their commitment to the Global Civilizational State which is seen by global citizens as the guardian, custodian and embodiment of Western civilization.
The effect of the expansion of the West has promoted both the modernization and the Westernization of non-Western societies. However modernization does not necessarily mean Westernization. Non-Western societies can modernize and have modernized without abandoning their own cultures and adopting wholesale Western values, institutions, and practices. In short, modernization has meant a great victory and achievement of Global Civilizational State on Earth.
The attitudes, values, knowledge, and culture of people in a modern society differ greatly from those in a traditional society. As the first civilization to modernize, the West leads in the acquisition of the culture of modernity. As other societies acquire similar patterns of education, work, wealth, and class structure, the argument runs, this modern Western culture will become the new culture for Global Civilizational State. Modern societies could resemble each other more than do traditional societies because the increased interaction among modern societies may not generate a common culture but it does facilitate the transfer of techniques, inventions, and practices from one society to another with a speed and to a degree that were impossible in the traditional world.
The components of order in today's more complex and heterogenous world are found within and between civilizations. The world will be ordered on the basis of civilizations or not at all. In this world the core states of civilizations are sources of order within civilizations and, through negotiations with other core states, between civilizations.
Because of modernization, global politics today is being reconfigured along cultural lines and civilizations. And of course, Global Civilizational State is finally giving its historical place as the global solution to saving humanity, and all other lifeforms on Earth, from complete extinction. Peoples and countries with similar cultures are coming together. Alignments defined by ideology and superpower relations are giving way to alignments defined by culture and civilization. A civilization may also include people who share in and identify with its culture, but who live in states dominated by members of another civilization. Civilizations usually have one or more places viewed by their members as the principal source or sources of the civilization's culture. These sources are often located within the core state or states of the civilization, that is, its most powerful and culturally central state or states.
In modern era, Western civilization, the West, is referred to the European-American civilization and America has become the land of freedom, equality, opportunity, the future, and is a distinct core-state civilization. Not so much ideologies, simply economics and politics now differentiate peoples of different civilizations. Nevertheless, cultures, ways of life, ways of doing things have been the most distinguishing characteristics. Those characteristics have been defined by religion, language, ancestry, history, communities, ethnic groups, customs, nations, and also by major levels of classification being civilizations.
In a multicivilizational world, there are core values which different ethnic and religious societies have in common. The constructive course is to renounce global culture, accept diversity, and seek commonalities. Commonalities exist between Asia and the West. Whatever the degree to which humankind is divided, the world's major religions, Western Christianity, Orthodoxy, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Confucianism, Taoism, Judaism, also share key values in common. A more inclusive Global Civilizational State can emerge gradually through the exploration and expansion of these commonalities. Peace in a multicivilizational world is the finding of those commonalities and so peoples in all civilizations should search for and attempt to expand the values, institutions, and practices they have in common with peoples of other civilizations.
Now, let us have a more specific definition and understanding of non-Western civilizations. Non-Western societies, such as those in East Asia, are expanding their economic wealth, political strength, military power, claiming their own cultural values and letting go those constrained on them by the West. Nations with cultural similarities cooperate economically and politically. For instance, East Asian economic success has its primary source in East Asian culture. Power has shifted from the predominant West to non-Western civilizations, and global politics has become multipolar and multicivilizational.
For China, unity is its first priority. The Chinese state enjoys a very different kind of relationship with society compared with the Western state. It enjoys much greater natural authority, legitimacy and respect, even though not a single vote is cast for the government. The reason is that the state is seen by the Chinese people as the guardian, custodian and embodiment of their civilization. The duty of the state is to protect its unity. The legitimacy of the state therefore lies deep in Chinese history. This is utterly different from how the state is seen by Western societies.
As a modern state, China accepts the concept of the sovereign equality of states and prevailing conceptions of human rights. China is unique due to the many traditions and features originating from its civilization. This is also the key conceptual difference between a civilizational state and a civilization-state. The civilizational state represents an amalgamation of an old civilization and a modern nation-state. On the other hand, a civilization-state reflects the tension between the two. As a civilizational state, China is both old and young, both traditional and modern, both Chinese and global. At least eight features can be derived from the civilizational state of China: 1) a very large population, 2) a vast territoty, 3) very long traditions, 4) a unique language, 5) richest cultural heritages, 6) a political system with Chinese characteristics, 7) a distinctive society, 8) and a unique way of running an economy.
Within China development model, the main features of the civilizational state (population, territory, tradition and culture) all constitute China's greatest strengths. China has the richest human resources and potentially the largest consumer market; China has an unparalleled geopolitical and geoeconomic status; China has its tradition of independent thinking, and has the richest cultural resources in the world. China is a civilizational state generating its own standards and values and making unique contributions to the world civilizations. China's civilizational state has a strong capability to draw on the strengths of other nations while maintaining its own identity. The Chinese people have a deep respect of Nature and have applied the secular application of ethics and political philosophy to social, economic, and political governance. Chinese culture is more inclusive than exclusive, within the broad conceptual framework of the Confucian idea of 'unity in diversity". The greatest wisdom of a civilizational state is its long tradition of seeking common ground while differences are set apart, and this wisdom is first reflected in the Chinese language.
Chinese characters are commonly made up of various components, and the components often give a hint of the pronunciation and the meaning of the word, and they are structured in such a way that they often follow the principle of "seeking common ground while reserving differences".The Chinese language seems to underline the fact that seeking commonality from diversity is a trait of Chinese culture. The governance of a civilizational state follows the same logic, and if one can focus on seeking the commonalities of different interest groups, one stands a better chance of solving the tensions among them, whether it is a tension between regions, between enterprises, between social groups, between rich and poor, or because of global right issues.
Over ancient time to this day, morality in society made its way into our ways of doing business. So the set of behaviors that constitute Global Civilizational State ethic for a business also evolved largely because they provided possible survival benefits to increase evolutionary success. Consequently, peoples evolved socially to express emotions, such as feelings of empathy or guilt, in response to these moral behaviors. Humans developed truly moral, altruistic instincts. When looking across cultures of geo-cultural areas and across millennia, certain virtues have prevailed in all cultures, the major ones include:
wisdom, knowledge, courage, justice, love, truth, empathy, kindness, and social intelligence.
These virtues were not always incorporated into the ways of doing business because the 1% super rich businesses became corrupted, greedy, no longer in line with humanity's survival on the planet, and more interested in keeping most of the wealth, resources and power for themselves keeping the remaining 99% of the world population in poverty. But today, Global Civilizational State incorporates these virtues and proper behaviors into corporate citizen global ethics.
Global Civilizational State ethics for a business are about how we treat others and a commitment to respect every person humanely and with dignity. For this process to work, global citizens learn to forgive, be patient and compassionate, promote acceptance, open theirs hearts to one another, and practice a culture of solidarity and cooperation. Let go narrow differences between us all for the greater good of humanity and future generations.
Economic and political power must be used as a service to humanity instead of misusing it in ruthless battles for domination. Global Community faith can help to develop a spirit of compassion with those who suffer, with special care for the children, the aged, the poor, the disabled, and the refugees.
We need ways of organizing ourselves to help us live in a world with less energy and to grow strong caring communities in which we get more of our human satisfaction from caring relationships and less from material goods. We need to reclaim the ideal of being a democratic middle-class people without extremes of wealth and poverty. We need to recover a deep sense of community that has disappeared from many of our lives. This means letting go a sense of ourselves as consumption machines. We need a Global Civilizational State leadership for all of humanity.
The increased interaction among peoples which includes trade, investment, tourism, media, electronic communication, is generating a common world culture. Improvements in transportation and communications technology have indeed made it easier and cheaper to move money, goods, people, knowledge, ideas, and images around the world. By increasing trade globally is unlikely to ease international tensions or promote greater international stability. Economic interdependence fosters peace only when states expect that high trade levels will continue into the foreseeable future, otherwise war is likely to result. Often people define their identity by what they are not. As increased communications, trade, and travel multiply the interactions among civilizations, people increasingly accord greater relevance to their civilizational identity. In an increasingly globalized world characterized by historically exceptional degrees of civilizational, societal, and other modes of interdependence and widespread consciousness, there is an exacerbation of civilizational, societal, and ethnic self-consciousness. The global religious revival, the return of the sacred, is a response to people's perception of the world as a single place, Earth, and Global Community.
Today the evidence-based argument for the appearance of a Global Civilizational State is really the result of the broad processes of modernization that have been going on since the eighteenth century. Modernization involves industrialization, urbanization, increasing levels of literacy, education, wealth, social mobilization, and more complex and diversified occupational structures. It is a product of the tremendous expansion of scientific and engineering knowledge beginning in the eighteenth century that made it possible for humans to control and shape their environment in totally unprecedented ways. Modernization is a revolutionary process comparable only to the shift from primitive to civilized societies that is, the appearance and evolution of Global Civilizational State.
In consequence of globalization, the new economic and political distribution of power around the world has become very different then we were used to. It has become very fluid, in perpetual motion and affected by global markets. Giant new markets are forming all over the world. Competition is hardening. National economies can no longer insure or guarantee rights of possession on any property. National borders no longer mean protection, security, cultural boundaries, resources ownership, political and economic control.
Environmental problems have contributed to numerous collapses of civilizations in the past. Now, for the first time, a global collapse appears likely and global warming, overpopulation, overconsumption by the rich and poor choices of technologies are major drivers; dramatic cultural change provides the main hope of averting calamity.
Today, for life survival on our planet, a distinction must be made in the developed countries between necessary and limitless consumption, between
socially beneficial and non-beneficial uses of property, between
justified and unjustified uses of natural resources, and between
a profit-only and a socially beneficial and ecologically oriented
market economy. The lives of all lifeforms and plants on our planet deserve protection, preservation, and care. Global Community disapproves of the limitless exploitation of the natural foundations of life, the relentless destruction of the biosphere, and the militarization of the space within and above the Earth's atmosphere. Global citizens must live in harmony with nature on and above the Earth's surface.
The life extinction crisis on Earth is an environmental issue and also a social justice issue, one that is linked to long histories of capitalist domination over people, other life forms, and plants. The extinction crisis needs to be seen as a key element in contemporary struggles against accumulation by dispossession. This crisis, in other words, ought to be a key issue in the fight for climate justice. The 1% people have as much wealth as half the world's population, and are controlling all economies on the planet. They stand behind an economic system based on capitalism that has institutionalized a global ignorance, in which producers and consumers cannot know or care about one another, and in which the histories of all products will be lost. It is now increasingly evident that only by sharing the world's natural resources more equitably and sustainably will we be able to address both the ecological and social crisis we face as Global Civilizational State .
The combined effects of aggressive marketing, advertising, and planned product obsolescence mean that the American consumer’s oversized footprint is largely a consequence and reflection of the global power of Transnational Corporations(TNCs), and more specifically corporate America. Global warming and climate change denialism requires shutting one’s eyes to obvious realities when the truth is that the Earth is warmer than it has been in 120,000 years. In that sense, it is perhaps more accurate to speak of corporate ecological footprints rather than the footprints of nations or individuals. Globalization has meant the distancing of cause and effect, source and sink, so that the pollution and human exploitation caused in the production and transport of goods has remained invisible and opaque to consumers.
How can further troubles not come into being when a vicious globalized capitalism system is in existence for which maximal profits, not people and their needs, is always the overriding goal? The global socioeconomic system of capitalism is forcing us to work harder to surpass previous consumption and population numbers until we have devoured everything that maintains life, ending up with a polluted, lifeless, and scorched planet.
Although the yearning for peace is deep-seated, it has never been achieved during civilisation due to its competitive nature. If we keep capitalism, the ultimate in competitiveness, it will finish us. Peace can’t be attained with military force; one can’t fight for peace or for cooperation. Peace is now possible because we have to have it to survive. People have the intellectual and the emotional ability to work out the multitude of changes to enable us to be fully social and survive, if it’s our goal.
What would be the shape and fundamental goals of an expansive anti-capitalist movement against extinction and for environmental justice? It would have to commence with open recognition by the developed nations of the long history of ecocide. Such an admission would lead to a consequent recognition of the biodiversity debt owed by the wealthy nations of the global North to the South. Building on the demands articulated by the climate justice movement, the anti-capitalist conservation movement must demand the repayment of this biodiversity debt.
A legally imposed contraction of the fossil energy supply and a rapid global conversion to renewable energy is a necessary step toward saving our world, Earth. So what should society do to avoid the worst impacts of climate change? Capitalism is based on ceaseless compound growth that is destroying ecosystems the world over, the goal in the rich nations of the global North must be to overturn our present expansionary system by fostering de-growth. Most importantly, nations that have benefited from burning fossil fuels must radically cut their carbon emissions in order to stem the lurch towards runaway climate chaos that endangers the vast majority of current terrestrial forms of life.
To become great again, the US parlayed the world’s largest national debt, its trade deficit, budget deficit, capital account deficit and savings rate deficit, into a position in the global driver seat through the dollar remaining global hub currency. Unemployment in the USA is very low and the economy seems great only because the USA Government is having a 21 trillion dollars debt to create jobs and subsidize its industrial complex, especially its corporate military industry which actually employs more than half of America's population. This 21 trillion dollars is mostly obtained from China and handed over to the USA Federal Reserve to help America create jobs in America. Naturally, the more the dollar was used in the world, the more America had the power to spend on the military. For the US, paying a bill of 6 trillion dollars (this is the cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan) has been effortless, and this constitutes an unparalleled advantage over countries like China and Russia whose military spending in comparison is a fifth and a tenth respectively.
The main source of economic reliability in America was transferred over time from gold to dollars, specifically to US treasury bills. This major shift allowed the Federal Reserve to print dollars practically without limit (as seen in recent years with interests rates for borrowing money from the FED at around 0%), well aware that the demand for dollars would never cease, this also keeping alive huge sectors of private and public enterprises such as the coal industry, fracking industry, car manufacturing, food and farming industries, and most importantly the military industry which has always giving jobs to more than half of America's population. No wonder President Trump, and several USA Presidents before him, have been claiming the lowest unemployment rate because more than half of America population works for the war industry, the industry that has produced most of the greenhouse gases globally at the expenses of the global life-support systems. This set a course for a global economic system based on financial instruments like derivatives and other securities instead of real, tangible goods like gold. In doing this for its own benefit, the US has created the conditions for a new financial bubble that could bring down the entire world economy when it bursts.
The United States found itself in the enviable position of being able to print pieces of paper (simply IOU’s) without any gold backing and then exchange them for real goods from other nations. This economic arrangement has allowed America to achieve an unparalleled strategic advantage over its geopolitical opponents (initially the USSR, now Russia and China), namely, a practically unlimited dollar spending capacity even as it accumulates an astronomical public debt (over 21 trillion dollars). The destabilizing factor for the global economy has been America's ability to accumulate enormous amounts of public debt without having to worry about the consequences or even of any possible mistrust international markets may have for the dollar. Countries simply needed dollars for trade and bought US treasures to diversify their financial assets.
The primary goal of the developed nations must be to overturn the present expansionary economic system based on capitalism by fostering de-growth and creating steady state societies founded on principles of equality and environmental justice. Most importantly, nations that have benefited from burning fossil fuels must radically cut their carbon emissions in order to stop the climate chaos that endangers the vast majority of current terrestrial forms of life. Let us now define what economic system should be used to govern our planet. What would be best is a "democratic socialism plus". The "plus" means added essential elements for governing sustainably. For instance, people would have free health care, free education at all levels, and employment for everyone. People would control and manage natural resources at all stages: exploration, production, transportation, manufacturing and distribution. A Global Trade and Resource Ministry would be formed to look after the management of naturel resources worlwide.
"Democratic socialism plus" advocates that the control and management of natural resources be under the control of the people. The 1 % super rich people worldwide who thrive within capitalism, must be overthrown. This new way of governing can be achieve through legitimate democratic means by voting in a party that represents this way of governing. "Democratic socialism plus" implies public owership, not private ownership of natural resources.
Because of the limited quantities of Earth resources to be made available for this generation and the next ones, and because of environmental, climate change, and world population concerns, there is a need to manage the entire process of using Earth natural resources. And we all know that the amount of oil left in the ground in the world has already passed its peak quantity. So why waste the oil on doing things we know are nothing but a waste of energy and often used for destruction and certainly will shorten the life span of the next generations. A Global Trade and Resources Ministry is needed to look after the management of Earth resources and trade at all stages: exploration, production, transportation, manufacturing and distribution.
The quality of Earth governance is reflected in each local community worldwide. Global Community will show leadership by creating
a global civil ethic within our ways of life. 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 global Rights
has become an inner truth and the benchmark of the millennium in how everyone sees all those values.
Earth environmental governance can only be achieved successfully within the larger context of sustainable developent and Earth management. All aspects are inter-related and affect one another.
A healthy environment is essential to long term prosperity and well-being of Global Community citizens. That demands a high level of ecological protection. This is the 'raison d'etre' of the Scale of Global Rights.
Primordial human rights are those human rights that individuals have by virtue of their very existence as human beings: to live,
eat, drink fresh water, breath clean air, and have shelter. These rights are separate categories than ecological rights, the right
of the greatest number of people, economic rights, social rights, cultural rights and religious rights. Ecological and primordial human rights
are the only rights that have existed unchanged throughout the evolutionary origin of our species. Any major change would have
threatened our very existence. All other human rights listed here are rights created by human beings and can be changed depending
of new circumstances; they are not stagnant but are rather flexible and adaptive, and they can evolve. Ecological and primordial human rights
of this generation and of future generations are therefore much more important than any other human rights existing now and in the future.
In this way the Scale of Global Rights gives us a sense of direction for future planning and managing of the Earth.
Earth management is now well defined and becomes a goal to achieve. We no longer waste energy and resources in things that are
It has also become a necessity of establishing the Global Trade and Resources Ministry that will be assessing, compiling, managing and protecting Earth resources, and the Earth Court of Justice prosecuting cases involving crimes related to the relentless misused of the Earth resources.
It's time for us to come to terms with reality. We need ways of organizing ourselves to help us live in a world with less energy and fewer material goods.
We need to recover a deep sense of community that has disappeared from many of our lives.
The world is in global crisis and a planetary state of emergency. We are exploiting our natural resources, minerals and fuels faster than we are gaining access to alternative sources.
We are polluting the natural environment faster than the environment can regenerate itself to reach the level suitable for human needs.
We are changing the global climate dangerously. Our attitude and way of life show a moral degradation toward
the existing forms of life on the planet. It's time for us to protect what is left to protect: life itself on Earth.
This was the reason for the creation of a planetary biodiversity zone.
Global Civilizational State has shown the benefits of biodiversity to humanity and hope this approach will motivate others to help create the zone.
The stewardship of the ecological base has to be given priority before the fulfilment of various economic and social wishes. All families need shelter, food, language, body of knowledge, certain skills, a source of income. Security of the home is an important aspect for any family and Global Civilizational State it belongs to. Primordial human 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 raise the child. On the Scale of Global Rights primordial human rights and the protection of the global life-support systems and of ecological rights are on top of the Scale. They are the most important aspects on the Scale.
As global crises of all sorts further intensify, the Global Community may have no alternative but to show solidarity and help each other out of crises, and such solidarity can only be built on the basis of harmony and moderation, and on respecting the political and cultural diversity of this troubled world. A successful Global Civilizational State for all life on Earth is on the horizon. Let us lead the world toward a Global Civilizational State.
Yet, the main reason that the whole mess will be curbed is a simple one: infinite growth, whether economic growth or population growth, cannot continue indefinitely. Anyone who believes exponential growth can go on forever in a finite world is either a madman or an economist. Accordingly, one can envision that a crash is coming. In large measure, it's because environmental tipping points are already on the way and, for those people in the worst locations for the collapse -- the desperation, conflicts and chaos will likely be horrific in scale and ferocity.
How could they not be when our governments worldwide and the status quo do not encourage our transitioning to a steady state economy, business based on regionalized commerce and a cooperative inclusive economic arrangement rather than out of control global competition, "democratic socialism plus" rather than capitalism? How can further troubles not come into being when a vicious globalized capitalism system is in existence for which maximal profits, not people and their needs, is always the overriding goal? Despite its desirably from many standpoints, how can an alternative scheme be put in place when it bumps up against the prevailing paradigm and the corporatists -- the powerful über-elites that control the gargantuan transnational companies and our fawning government toadies?
Earth has long been waiting for a truly global governing
body based on universal values, global rights, global concepts and democracy.
We might as well start this new way of doing things creating process now, there is no longer any reason to wait. But then Global Civilizational State is already here.
As never before in history, common destiny beckons us to seek a new beginning. It requires a new sense of global interdependence and universal responsibility.
We must develop and apply the vision of a sustainable way of life locally, nationally, regionally, globally, and within ourselves
throughout life. Our cultural diversity is a precious heritage and different cultures will find their own distinctive ways to
realize the vision.
Global Civilizational State has now a Vision of the Earth in Year 2024 and a sense of direction.
Global Civilizational State embarks on a new path in history, the inevitability of global societies living, sharing, and creating symbiotical relationships
interactively is, beyond doubt, that which we must confront. Our creativity today may influence tomorrow's socio-economic strategies
and contribute to the evolution of human societies - an evolution directed towards a global partnership and cooperation with each other for survival.
In order to build a sustainable global community, each individual, each local community, and national governments of the world must initiate their commitment to Global Civilizational State. Global Civilizational State was defined as a social, and political movement in the sense of having a broad organizational structure and an ideology aimed at governing. The environmental movement, within Global Civilizational State, expresses the concerns of groups of people regarding depletion of water, clean air, climate change aspects, degradation of land and other changes in ecosystems affecting traditional patterns of natural resources exploitation . Global Civilizational State has taken the role of helping these groups in protecting and managing the environment by coordinating their efforts. Global Civilizational State is aware that religious beliefs, traditional customs and standards could burden the sustainability of all life on Earth. They could burden Earth society or any society forever, and holds individuals in a straitjacket. We cannot accept that. No one can! There are choices to be made, and we must make them. Cultures can develop and can go on developing. Even religious beliefs may evolve. We are living now, and we are able to create these changes. We are at least as bright, most certainly brighter, than the people who were living thousand of years ago.
Global Civilizational State opposes environmental, economic, population and military warfares. Global Civilizational State was first to oppose any type of invasion of a people by another people. An invasion is either an environmental, economic, population or military offensive in which large numbers of combatants of one geopolitical entity aggressively enter territory owned by another such entity, generally with the objective of either conquering; liberating or re-establishing control or authority over a territory; forcing the partition of a country; altering the established government or gaining concessions from said government; or a combination thereof. An invasion can be the cause of a war, be a part of a larger strategy to end a war, or it can constitute an entire war in itself. Due to the large scale of the operations associated with invasions, they are usually strategic in planning and execution. Global Civilizational State has been witnessing such different types of walfares for decades. And now is time to stop all types of invasion no matter what they maybe.
Overpopulation worlwide is a crisis. Everyone is responsible and are required now by Global Civilizational State to follow Global Law as defined and developed by Global Community.
Symbiotical relationships are needed today for the long term future of humanity and for the protection of life on Earth. Humanity needs to slow down significantly world population. This 21st century is very crucial for humanity as it will determine our survival or not as a species and, consequently, the survival of the next generations. It is now increasingly evident that only by sharing the world's natural resources more equitably and sustainably will we be able to address both the ecological and social crisis we face as Global Civilizational State. This does not imply that a section of the world population whose idea of survival is to have many children and Global Community would see that they are given all social services needed for survival. No! There are global laws concerning procreation and everyone is required not to have more than 1.3 children per family in a given population. Global population warfare is not permitted, much like military and economic warfares in the world today. All other life species than human are also part of Global Community and their population will also be protected for their own survival.
Population warfare definition (as defined by Global Civilizational State in 1985): use of a very high fertility rate to conquer a nation, and that could mean as many as or more than 2.11 children per family. It is a form of cultural and/or religious aggression and invasion by having a much too high number of new born babies. For instance, there has been a rapid increase in population among Muslims to the extent that in fifty years all of Europe and North America are expected to be mostly Islamic. The influx of Latino immigration into the western states of the USA will also have the effect of a population warfare.
Global Community Ministry of World Population.
Moratorium on world population and the fertility rate, and ending population warfare.
Clearly the environmental challenges facing humanity in the 21st century and beyond would be less difficult in a world with slower population growth or none at all. Population is a critical variable influencing the availability of each of the natural resources considered here. And access to family planning services is a critical variable influencing population. Use of family planning contributes powerfully to lower fertility, later childbearing, and slower population growth. Yet policymakers, environmentalists and the general public remain largely unaware of the growing interest of young people throughout the world in delaying pregnancies and planning their families. In greater proportions than ever, girls want to go to school and to college, and women want to find fulfilling and well-paid employment.
