Who should own the Earth ?

August 18, 2007


I appreciate very much your comment and that of others such as Garry Davis and John Watkins. Certainly we live a time when the Global Community is to do a giant step forward to let go the old way and embrace the new way we are in the process of building.

Yes I agree much more refinement is needed to make our proposals more suitable to all. Global Dialogue 2008 will give everyone a chance to bring forward their thoughts on what will be best as a first draft. I like to call this draft the Global Economic Model. Well! Nothing has been said until everything has been said so let us work hard here.

I have added our email discussion at the following locations for others to read and discuss further:

John mentioned that

  "Rather than redistributing existing ownership rights, it's easier to change the inheritance and gift tax laws by taxing the estate of the recipient.  "
It is really not changing much of anything. The state of the world would still be the same.

As I mentioned in my message, we need to take a giant step forward to a new form of democracy. We, the Global Community, must now direct the wealth of the world towards the building of local-to-global economic democracies in order to meet the needs for food, shelter, healthcare, education, and employment for all.

The Global Community has proposed a new democratic mandate recognizing that the gifts of nature - the land, oil, minerals, other natural resources and a substantial amount of the monetary value accruing to their use - rightly belong to the Global Community.

Dear Germaine,

I like your recent refinements on "who *should* own the Earth." But, in my opinion, it needs further refinement so that your concept is more directly linked to the structured diffusion of power to each man, woman and child as a fundamental human right. That "social link" to all the land and natural resources should take the form of a single, lifetime, non-transferable, voting share in a Global Natural Resources Bank as described in the attached email exchanges between John Watkins of the Alliance for Human Empowerment and me and HB 2352, a bill that I drafted that passed the Illinois House of Representatives by a vote of 115-0. Specificity is important in your initiative to bring Peace through Justice to the global community.

If you haven't already done so, I suggest you contact World Citizen Garry Davis, to obtain a copy of his excellent book, /Who Owns the World. /Garry/ /is a seminal thinker and has many wonderful insights on the question in your subject line./

Who owns the Earth ?

The theme of Global Dialogue 2008 is:
The planet-Life-Soul of Humanity symbiotical relationship
which brings up a question
Who owns the Earth?

In today's affairs a very powerful few are in possession of the Earth's resources, the land and all its riches, and all the franchises and other privileges that yield a return. These few people operate virtually without taxation. Is that what we want as a global democracy? Who should own the Earth?

Soveveignty is the status of a person or group of persons having supreme and independent political authority. The concept of sovereignty is related to the concept of power: power over a territory, land and water, oil and minerals, as well as life on Earth. The United Nations (UN) cannot have normal attributes of sovereignty, which has been defined around a territory and population.

The Global Community has in fact been defined around a given territory, that territory being the planet as a whole, as well as a specific population, which is the Global Community. The issue here is not that of populations and boundary lines, but of the demarcation of power and control over the Earth that is the foremost formal attribute of sovereignty.

To speak of enforceable global law is to speak of world power. Global Parliament has the power to make the laws of the land and to make the rules for the territory of the Earth. Global Law has been and continue to be researched and developed for this purpose.

Today's problem is that democracy has not grounded itself. We have not extended democratic principles to the ownership and control of the Earth. The democratic global government as currently proposed by the Global Community, is grounded in equal rights to the Earth, and thus can create the world of peace and justice that we seek.

Conservation, restoration, and rational use of the Earth resources is about asking ourselves the question of "Who owns the Earth?" The large gap between rich and poor is conected to ownership and control of the planet's land and of all other Earth natural resources. This causes a fundamental threat to democracy. What has become of democracy? What has become "we the people?

We need to take a giant step forward to a new form of democracy. We, the Global Community, must now direct the wealth of the world towards the building of local-to-global economic democracies in order to meet the needs for food, shelter, healthcare, education, and employment for all.

The Global Community has proposed a new democratic mandate recognizing that the gifts of nature - the land, oil, minerals, other natural resources and a substantial amount of the monetary value accruing to their use - rightly belong to the Global Community. The Earth is our birthright and our common heritage. What we make from our mental and physical labor can rightfully be held as individual property but the profit of the Earth should be shared by all and for all.The unjust and inequitable ownership and control of vast amounts of the land and of other natural resource wealth of our planet is also a root cause of the great majority of local-to-global conflicts and wars. Our current form of democratic governance is severely limited in its capacity to negotiate peaceful means of resolving resource inequities and disputes, whether over oil and other minerals or over land for housing and livelihoods.

The Global Economic Model proposed by the Global Community is truly the best response to the world.

Again here we will keep this dialogue within the "philosophy of life" framework of the Global Community, some called it the religion of the third millennium, others called it the politics of the future generations now. Let us remind everyone the definition that has been guiding us throughout the previous dialogues: The Global Dialogue

"The Global Community is defined as being all that exits or occurs at any location at any time between the Ozone layer above and the core of the planet below." The Glass Bubble concept  of a Global Community

This is the fundamental definition of the expression "Global Community" first defined by myself and my wife Virginie in 1985. The Glass Bubble concept  of a Global Community This definition includes all people, all life on Earth. This is the fundamental definition of the expression Global Communit It also implicitly says that no-one in particular owns the Earth but we all own it together. Not just us people, but all life on Earth owns it. The beginning of life stretches as far back as 4 billion years, and so Life claims its birthright of ownership of Earth, and so does the Soul of all Life, the Soul of Humanity. Evolution, Creation and now, Guiding Souls Throughout this dialogue the land ownership of the Earth means ownership of the land and of all other Earth natural resources.

"A global community" is not about a piece of land you acquired by force or otherwise. One could think of a typical community that does not have to be bounded by a geographical or political border. It can be 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 we 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.

The old concept of a community being the street where we live in and surrounded by a definite geographical and political boundary has originated during the Roman Empire period. An entire new system of values was then created to make things work for the Roman Empire. Humanity has lived with this concept over two thousand years. Peoples from all over the world are ready to kill anyone challenging their border. They say that this is their land, their property, their 'things'. This archaic concept is endangering humanity and its survival. The Roman Empire has gone but its culture is still affecting us today. We need to let go the old way of thinking. We need to learn of the new concept, and how it can make things work in the world.

A typical community may be what a group of people, together, wants it to be. It can be a group of people sharing with the same values. It can be a group of people with the same cultural background, or the same religious background. Or they can be people with totally different backgrounds and beliefs. The people making a global community may be living in many different locations on the planet. With today's communications it is easy to group people in this fashion. It can be a village, or two villages together where people have decided to unite as one community. The two villages may be found in different parts of the world. It can be a town, a city, or a nation. It can be two or more nations together.

Following this thinking we see land ownership is no longer a problem. The Earth and all its natural resources belong to all the "global communities" contained therein. A village, or a city is "a global community" and owns the land around its boundaries. Along with the Global Community, it has ownership of all natural resources within its boundaries. We will see in the Preview how this new system can work.

As mentioned above, land here, by definition, covers all naturally occurring resources like surface land, minerals deposits (gold, oil and gas etc), water, electromagnetic spectrum, the trees, fish in the seas and rivers. It is unjust to treat land as private property. Land is not a product of labor. Everyone should therefore be given equal access to such natural resources.

On the global level the Law of the Seas Covenant is an example of a ground rent basis for public needs as it has affirmed that ocean resources are the common heritage of all and a proper source of funding for global institutions. Water belongs to the Earth and all species and is sacred to life therefore, the world’s water must be conserved, reclaimed and protected for all future generations and its natural patterns respected.

Water is a fundamental human right and a public trust to be guarded by all levels of government; therefore, it should not be commodified, privatized or traded for commercial purposes. These rights must be enshrined at all levels of government. In particular, an international treaty must ensure these principles are noncontrovertable.

Water is best protected by local communities and citizens, who must be respected as equal partners with governments in the protection and regulation of water. Peoples of the Earth are the only vehicle to promote democracy and save water.

Similarly, all the Earth natural resources belong to the Global Community to be used, developed and conserved for the maximum benefit of the people and of all life.

The Global Community should set up expert groups and begin the necessary intergovernmental negotiations towards establishing alternative revenue sources, which could include fees for the commercial use of the oceans, fees for airplane use of the skies, fees for use of the electromagnetic spectrum, fees levied on foreign exchange transactions, and a tax on carbon content of fuels.

This thinking should give us a fresh start for a better future and bring some light to understanding previous claims of the many different groups such as:

None of the above groups can claim ownership of the land and other Earth natural resources. They never did own the land and of all other Earth natural resources. And they never will.

Only the Global Community can rightfully claim ownership of the Earth.

The theme of this Global Dialogue being "The planet-Life-Soul of Humanity symbiotical relationship", we will see how the relationship can help this generation of young people and the next ones to remain healthy.

The young people of to-day are interested in all the secret wisdom behind all the existing religions and sifting out the common truths. They seek the best of the best. They are aware of the Soul of Humanity and have established a spiritual symbiotical relationship with it, and thus with God. They seek the exaltation and merging of their Souls into one to gain strength, friendship, creativity, love and light.

Their childhood conditioning has prepared them to act on a firm understanding of what it takes to get along with others, working as a group.

They are educated to understand a broad panorama of human truths ~ all those universal needs and rights every one shares. The Scale of Human and Earth Rights has become an inner truth and the benchmark of the millennium in how they see all values. The Earth Court of Justice brings security, peace and justice for all. They no longer fear the unknown as Justice is for everyone and is everywhere, a universal constant. The Global Justice Movement for all life is now driven by these young people.

They see money for what it is - energy to use for good.

Their idea of power is power over Self.

Each and every Self is dedicated to an idea for good that others can share together in creating this new Eden. Doing good and the well-being of the "other" have become the basic building block of any symbiotical relationship.

What we have here is the birth of genuine group concern and unconditional support for the individual's well-being ~ a giant leap in human behaviour which could well change the functioning of global communities everywhere. We are becoming the human family. This new "philosophy of life" of the Global Community has made grounds in people's way of life.

What we have here is the age of global co-operation and symbiotical relationships of all types for the good of all. An age with a mind, a heart and a Soul of its own. A unique and wonderful age never seen before over the entire human history! An age with a vision to caring for life and Earth! An age of the Soul!

However, we have reached the deplorable circumstance where in large measure a very powerful few are in possession of the Earth's resources, the land and all its riches, and all the franchises and other privileges that yield a return. These monopolistic positions are kept by a handful of men who are maintained virtually without taxation.

Whoever owns the land and all other natural resources exerts power over those who are landless and no resources. The Global Community proposes to extend democratic principles to include the ownership and control of the Earth. The Global Economic Model was created for all the people on the planet. The model makes sure that the rights of all people and the rights of the planet are one and the same.

The Global Economic Model stipulates as well that we, as human beings, are trustees and caretakers of all other life forms on Earth.

The Global Economic Model is global, as people are freed to move beyond borders and boundaries and claim the whole Earth as their birthplace.

How the Earth should be owned is the major economic question of this time. The world should be owned by the people living in it.

Unless a reformed or empowered Global Parliament is leading firmly upon the principle of equal rights for the Global Community, then the planet will be controlled by a handful of vested interests.

Land here, by definition, covers all naturally occurring resources like surface land, minerals deposits (gold, oil etc), water, electromagnetic spectrum, the trees, fish in the seas and rivers. It is unjust to treat land as private property. Land is not a product of labor. Everyone should therefore be given equal access to natural resources. The Global Economic Model proposes to make private property the product of labor. Common property is all what Nature offers. The Global Economic Model policy removes taxes from wages and increases taxes and user fees on common property.

The model eliminates subsidies that are environmentally or socially harmful, and inequitable.

Your questions are excellent, and I think they will undoubtedly be raised in the development of the fine details in implementing CICs, perhaps differently in different states and different parts of the world.  Let me start by looking at the big picture, and then focus down to the community level. 

It is not inconceivable, given the developing nature of the "global village," that there would someday be a Global Natural Resource Bank in which every world citizen would automatically have a single share in the Bank that would own all the world's land and natural resources.  That share would be non-transferable from life to death so that the rentals of land and natural resources for productive purposes would enable the Bank to provide an equal dividend income from the gifts of nature to each world citizen.  Obviously, if such a global entity existed, it would make no difference where that citizen happened to establish his or her primary residence.

On the other hand, man-made structures and technologies would be owned separately through competitive private sector enterprises within a market-oriented system.  Whenever those structures and technologies are to be added, new shares of these enterprises would be financed through Capital Homesteading for every citizen, as described in our book, Capital Homesteading for Every Citizen.  Interest-free capital credit allocated equally among all citizens to enable them, with help from the lending commercial banks, to choose among certain options to buy these newly issued, full dividend payout, full voting shares from the pool of new and expanding enterprises.  Those options might include the choice to invest in (1) companies in which a member of the family works, (2) companies in which  the family has a monthly billing accounts, (3) local or regional for-profit Community Investment Corporations (CICs) in adding basic infrastructure to the land for rentals from those using the land, or (4) companies listed as having a solid history of profitability.

Let's assume realistically that the process starts with State and national legislation that authorizes and encourages CICs for "communities" designated by States or regional compacts of several States.  Based on the premise that anything owned by a government entity can and should be owned individually by its citizens, then a citizen would receive a personalized single free and non-transferable equity share in the non-governmental CIC that owns and rents out the undeveloped land and natural resources of the "community."  In my opinion, that equity share in the land and natural resources should be tied to whatever community that that person has established as his or her primary residence.  Why one share?  Because each citizen would have an equal stake at risk, just as a democratic society allocates votes on a one-person, one-vote.  When that person moves from that "community" that share would be cancelled or allocated to a new resident.  Natural resources by themselves were God-given and thus did not require any contribution from any citizen.  Only when these natural resources are used for human purposes do they acquire a rental value that can be established under an auction system. 

With regard to shares in operating companies for developing and using these natural resources for meeting human needs, or for financing CIC infrastructural assets or any other man-made technologies and structures, the citizen should be able to take his shares wherever he wants to locate in the world.  The rights of private property in human productive assets (which would accumulate in different amounts according to the Capital Homesteading choices made by each Capital Homesteader) should be protected for the life of that citizen, even if he or she wants to live in a cave and be a hermit.

If you agree that one of the basic rights of private property is the right of the owner to the full, undiluted fruits of whatever assets he or she owns (whether in one's body or in one's non-human assets), then any assertion that that owner is a parasite is wrong and a display that the critic doesn't understand the social nature of private property.  That's why it is so essential that people become acquainted with Kelso's binary economics.  (See http://www.cesj.org/binaryeconomics/be-inanutshell.htm)

I hope this is helpful to you, John.

Because it would use the land for the  benefit of the "public" (in a truer sense of the word than if it were the government), the CIC could be granted by the State its power of condemnation under eminent domain.  Then the CIC could buy the structures and improvements at a fairly appraised price and either lease back the structures and improvements to the new owner, sell them to others, or tear them down for redevelopment for purposes more beneficial to the citizens.
Noem, I picked a somewhat arbitrary section of your earlier post in order to frame an additional question.
I wonder how you would address mobility in terms of local rights. People must move from place to place and what rights would they give up in former locations and what rights would they acquire in new locations.
I'm concerned about the tendency of people to move from less favorable to more favorable locations when their primary motive is to simply benefit from work that has already been done by others--to be parasites to cast in it less-nice terms.
But, it also seems to me that distribution o rights on a localized basis will tend to encourage such behavior--even to make it sensible from a personal basis.
