The issue of voting has been discussed in the article Direct Democracy Direct Voting. and by the Global Information Media (GIM) Democracy aspects and issues GIM Democracy aspects and issues

Shortly after 1985, the Global Community Assessment Centre (GCAC) has researched and developed a process for global voting. Since then GCAC has conducted several global voting on issues. There are 161 nations that have so far been surveyed. Some results are shown here. More surveys will be completed in the coming months and published here. Global voting has been and will continue to be a strong mean of obtaining the global opinion on issues. This method is different than data obtained from government agencies of the 161 nations. Data from those agencies are important but global voting is also very important. Global voting probes directly into a population. It is actually direct democracy.

 Global issue  yes    no  
  In view of the criteria for sovereignty of a people and the process developed by the Global Community regarding the creation of a nation, should the Global Community endorse Kosovo's break from Serbia?  3  97
  The invasion of Afghanistan by the White House and other NATO nations has been flawed from the start. The Afghan freedom fighters are the same people who help the USA fight the Russians during the Cold War. They did not want invaders, Russians, Americans, or any other invaders, to be in their country. They took their message to America on 9/11. Should Canada be getting out of Afghanistan as it is wrong and illegal to be part of an invasion?  78  22
 Should Canada get out of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the United States until such a time when all economic, social, cultural, and environmental aspects have been approved in a referendum by all Canadians?  72  28
 Should Canada get out of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with the United States and Mexico until such a time when all economic, social, cultural, and environmental aspects have been approved in a referendum by all Canadians?  76  24
 Should Canada get out of negotiations concerning the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) until such a time when all economic, social, cultural, and environmental aspects have been approved in a referendum by all Canadians?  91  9
 Should Canada negotiates the establishment of the Global Government of North America (GGNA) with the United States and Mexico to include all economic, social, cultural, and environmental aspects, and a veto power for each partner, and have that approved in a referendum by all Canadians?  58  42
 Should there be a global ministry of sustainable agriculture?  92  8
 Should global laws of the Global Constitution become universal and well used?  57  43
 Should people, businesses, nations be made more accountable of their ways of doing things?  91  9
  Do people understand how important it is to obtain a strong commitment from all nations to achieve a negative average annual population growth rate?  18  82
  Should organizations such as the United Nations (UN), the World Trade Organization (WTO), World Health Organization (WHO), North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), North American Free Trade Association (NAFTA), European Union (EU) be required to operate as per the 'fundamental criteria' of the Global Community? The 'fundamental criteria' stipulates that a relationship is created for the good of all groups participating in the relationship and for the good of humanity, all life on Earth. The relationship allows a global equitable and peaceful development and a more stable and inclusive global economy.  68  32
  The Global Economic Model proposes to collect for the people a payment for the use of natural resources and to remove taxes on labor. Would you say that is a better way of handling taxes?  74  26
  The Global Community stipulates that 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. So, by definition, land here, covers all naturally occurring resources like surface land, the air, 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. Would you agree with this definition?  83  17
  The cost of peace has too often been the cost of continued injustice and conditions of economic servitude. Only Global Parliament has adequate legislation to overcome this problem. Would you allow Global Parliament to apply appropriate sanctions to a business, nation, or any organization responsible for causing injustice?  95  5
  The invasion of Iraq by the White House is now being seen as the biggest mistake ever done by a nation on an other nation. It is a crime against humanity and all life on Earth, and a crime yet to be prosecuted. Would you agree that those guilty of this crime be held responsible and made accountable?  98  2
  Global Community recommendations concerning UN climate change conference in Bali are:
1. Re-write the Bali road map into a legal document with legislation, global laws to be enforced;
2. Include sanctions to be implemented when a nation failed to achieve the objectives of the Bali road map; and
3. Acquire funds to be administered by the Global Protection Agency ( GPA ) for the implementation of the sanctions.
Would you agree?

  American have brought disgrace to humanity by their selfish, immoral, unethical, incoherent, inconsistent, dishonnest, erratic, and mostly aimed at making money behavior in the Middle East and towards Afghanistan. You would think we would be 'civilized' by now. Military intervention in the affairs of other nations is wrong. There are other ways, there are peaceful ways, ways that are not based on profit-making and the gain of power for itself. The invasion of nations such as those of the Middle East and Afghanistan are crimes against humanity and will be prosecuted. War is the greatest violation of human and Earth rights that one people can inflict on another. Would you agree?  85  15
  Should President Bush be impeached?  95  5
 Some people say it was a Magnitude 5.9 quake that hits off Indonesia. Be is there any proof of that? In the confusion of all, everyone believed what the media was saying. The media was being told information from governments but no one actually can prove it was an earquake that created the tsunami. No one truly knows for sure. There is now another theory. A submarine was testing the use of nuclear war heads by exploding them over the ocean bottom. Actually, it was not the first time that some nations have exploded nuclear war heads in the oceans. Our oceans have been hit several times. Exploding war heads in our oceans is at least as bad as a major oil spill. It is showing barbarism. It is killing the global communities of life in the oceans and destroying the delicate balance of our oceans physical, biological and chemical characteristics that can accelerate the climate change drastically when disturbed. It is showing ignorance and stupidity.
In 2004, the war heads were more destrutive and were over the bottom of the ocean, and that scenario created a tsunami wave. Just a test, said the captain of the submarine that did it.
Of course I have no proof of that. But then the only way you could prove it was truly an earthquake is by conducting an independent forensic investigation of the ocean bottom. So all we can say is that it is more likely that it was a powerful nuclear explosion that created the tsunami. That is the goal of the military, to test its armament and they did. But they were not going to admit it to the world. Gees! Not a good thing to admit that you just killed thousands of people and destroyed communities from several nations of the world. In today's planetary state of emergency, Global Law must be applied. All nations capable of such an extreme action against humanity and all life on Earth must pay for the independent investigation. The Earth Court of Justice will see that Justice is done. Would you agree that there is now a planetary state of emergency and that a nation or an organization is guilty until found not guilty and that we should protect our oceans and all other global life-support systems by stopping those responsible and make them accountable?

 The United States is the only nation that would profit from the melting of the North Pole and is capable of such an extreme action against humanity and all life on Earth by exploding nuclear bombs to melt glaciers and North Pole cap. The Earth Court of Justice will see that Justice is done. In view of the planetary state of emergency, the Global Community says: for the protection of all life on Earth, a preventive principle is our only alternative. You are guilty until you can prove otherwise. Global Law must be applied. The United States must pay for the independent investigation. Would you agree?  98  2
 NATO and the White House claimed that they do what they are doing to give security to its population and to the world. In the past, security was thought as better accomplished through military means. Expanding the military capabilities and forming alliances with other nations were the only way to 'win'. That is how NATO came into existence. Today wars are unlikely to produce winners. The Global Community is all over the planet. Ethnic groups are everywhere. Some say there are more Italians in Montreal, Canada that there are in Italy. So we would fight our own people? Wars truly make no sense! The world is too crowded and too small nowadays! And weapons too lethal! So security cannot be achieved through the military. The only job the military should be asked to do today is to protect the global life-support systems. These systems have the highest priority on the Scale of Human and Earth Rights and are certainly more important than any of the other rights on the Scale including security. Simply because without life there is no other right possible. Without Oxygen there is no life! Without clean water there is no life! So protect life on Earth at all costs. Wars are the biggest threat to life and the ecosystem of the planet. Primordial human rights come next on the Scale of Human and Earth Rights. Without a shelter life will still exist in some places but is hardly possible in cold place. So security must be achieved by other means than wars. We might as well shelved the war industry, the worst of all polluters, from humanity right now and that means phasing out all nuclear, biological, chemical weapons right now. No waiting! That also means having inspectors verifying the phasing out in all nations of the world, and not just in some Middle East country. The nature of global security has changed since the rise of the Global Community. Security used to be about the protection of the state and its boundaries, people, institutions and values from an outside threat. The Global Community emphasizes as a priority the prohibition of external interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states. Global security can only be achieved if it can be shared by all peoples and through global co-operation, based on principles as explained in the Global Constitution such as justice, human dignity, and equity for all and for the good of all. Would you agree that the military option and the war industry should be shelved foerever from humanity and never to be used again to solve a global problem?  77  23
  Prosecuting criminals on the basis of universal jurisdiction regardless of a territorial or nationality nexus requires a solid commitment of political will from national governments and the Global Community. The Earth Court of Justice will hear cases involving crimes related to the global ministries. The Court will have a dual role: to settle in accordance with international law the legal disputes submitted to it by national governments, local communities, and in some special cases by corporations, non-government-organizations and citizens, and to give advisory opinions on legal questions referred to it by duly authorized organs and agencies. The Court will make judgments in accordance with the principles and values of the Global Constitution. Would you agree to let the Earth Court of Justice prosecute criminals?  81  19
  In view of the fact that the United Nations and many of its related organizations have failed humanity and all life on Earth on many levels:

1. the Universal Declaration of Human Rights should be replaced by the Scale of Human and Earth Rights;
2. corruption, mismanagement at the highest levels, and bad global governance;
3. promotion of the military option, war;
4. allowing the genocides of several peoples;
5. the business of deceiving, making believe, controlling without a democratic mandate from the Global Community;
6. the U.N. is operating using precepts dating back 2000 years and developed by the Roman Empire; those precepts best suit the invasion of nations and the destruction of the global life-support systems and the Earth environment;
7. the absence of proper governance and global justice at the U.N.;
8. the use of trickery to deceive the world and subdue nations; and
9. powerful lobbying groups forcing decision making at the UN.

and that the permanent members of the United Nations are showing a destructive leadership to the Global Community, it has become clear that the United Nations should be replaced by Earth Government. Earth Government's action on the international scene shall be guided by, and designed to advance in the wider world, the principles which have inspired its own creation, development and enlargement: democracy, the rule of law, the universality and indivisibility of human rights and fundamental freedoms, respect for human dignity, equality and solidarity, and for international law in accordance with the principles of the Global Constitution. Earth Government shall seek to develop relations and build partnerships with third countries, and international, regional or global organisations, which share these values. It shall promote multilateral solutions to common problems, in particular in the framework of Global Parliament.

Would you agree to replace the United Nations by Earth Government?

  Building global communities require understanding of global problems this generation is facing. There are several major problems: conflicts and wars, no tolerance and compassion for one another, world overpopulation, human activities, as population increases the respect and value of a human life is in decline, insufficient protection and prevention for global health, scarcity of resources and drinking water, poverty, Fauna and Flora species disappearing at a fast rate, global warming and global climate change, global pollution, deforestation, permanent lost of the Earth's genetic heritage, and the destruction of the global life-support systems and the eco-systems of the planet. We need to build global communities for all life on the planet. We need to build global communities that will manage themselves with the understanding of the above problems. Recommendations to humanity

In general, populations of all lifeforms grow exponentially that is by a steady proportion of whatever was there before. When there is no practical limit on resource then populations usually grow maximally and the only limit is that of the reproductive capacity of the female animal. About 10,000 years ago, human beings were obliged to commit themselves more or less fully to agriculture and the human population was 5 to 10 million. Then about 2,000 years ago, after only 8,000 years of large-scale agriculture, the human population was 100 to 300 million. After this time, the exponential growth of the population entered its rapid phase. The billion mark was passed by 1800 A.D. By year 2000, the human population exceeded 6 billion. Thus agriculture allowed a thousand-fold increase in numbers over a period of 10,000 years. Obviously something has to be done! We propose a tight global policy, benignly implemented, or it will be very nasty indeed. In practice, a human population of 10 to 12 billion would be too uncomfortably high and would add a high strain on world resources. What kind of world population would be reasonable? What goal should we aim at? A population should be small enough to be sustainable indefinitely and still allow plenty of leeway for ourselves and other lifeforms. It should also be large enough to allow the formation of healthy civilizations. Comprehensive population policies are an essential element in a world development strategy that combines access to reproductive health services, education and economic opportunities, improved energy and natural resource technologies, and to healthier models of consumption and the 'good life'.

Would you agree to the promotion of the world development strategy proposed by the Global Community?
