"Someday, this world will be peaceful, united, educated and prosperous. There will be no war, no poverty, and no discrimination. A world able to protect itself from global warming, over consumption, nuclear disaster, pollution, acid rain, ozone layer depletion, and AIDS. A world that is able to practice sustainable development, protection of environment and responsible parenthood. There is a world future where there will be no national boundaries, no racial discrimination, nor religious fanaticism.
Because every human being is a child of God, everyone is equally important and deserves to enjoy human rights, freedom, happiness and prosperity. The citizens of the world have the duty to act towards this vision, in wherever, whenever, and whatever they can within their status in life. As soon as possible, and through a democratic consensus of all nations via global plebiscite and a drafting of a global constitution through an international constitutional convention, the goal of the citizens of the world is to set up a single and unified global government with police powers, powers to tax, and has the power of eminent domain.
This task is arduous and long, but there is no justification for any armed solution in pursuance of this vision. Diplomacy should be the only way.
The global government will have judicial, executive, and legislative branches; a government-financed two-party system from the global presidency down to village level; with one monetary system, civil service system, electoral system and an economic system grounded on free enterprise. A global president, vice-president, a chamber of hereditary leaders and a chamber of territorial representatives will be popularly elected. The territorial divisions of the world will have governors, vice governors, and territorial representatives who will also be popularly elected. The cabinet heads of the global government and as well as that of the geographical divisions should come from the popularly elected representatives of the territorial divisions.
Ten (10) Stages towards the formation of the Global Government: 1. Information drive and leveling - off using the Globalist Manifesto 2. Formation of the critical mass of global advocates from every corner of the world. 3. Formation of the International Global Government Organizing Committee. 4. International Convention to Draft the Global Constitution. 5. International Plebiscite on the Global Constitution. 6. Formation of the global two - party system. 7. Election of the Global President, Vice-President, Territorial Representatives, and International Council of Hereditary Leaders. 8. Appointment of the Global Cabinet from among the Territorial Representatives. 9. Formation of the Global Seat of Government, Armed Forces and Central Bank. 10.Managing the world towards lasting peace and prosperity.
This manifesto should be advocated worldwide to kings, queens, heads of the states, heads of the government, diplomats, military leaders, educators, scientists, church leaders, business leaders, personalities, thinkers and everyone. Leaders from all over the world would advocate this vision and one of them should become the founding president of the global government with the rest as the founding fathers.YOU COULD BE ONE OF THEM."
(The original manuscript of this manifesto emerged from the classroom of the Master in Development Management, Class of 2003,at the Asian Institute of Management, Makati City, Philippines, on October 18, 2002. The purity of this manifesto should be maintained to avoid misunderstandings as we go on our journey towards the Global Government someday. That government may not happen within your personal lifetime but it will come within the time of the Creator.)
Nice to hear from you. I must say that I find the idea of me being the president of the Global Government rather humorous. But I will serve in any way that God asks.
In my book I recommend a committee of three co-equal executives for the global government, so as to keep the executive branch rather weak compared to the legislative and judicial branches. But leadership is needed either way.
I've not spent much time promoting my Global Governance petition on-line, but now that http://stevemcintosh.com is up, I may turn to promoting these sites more actively.
Thanks for the info about our ranking on the search engines.The integral perspective attempts to transcend the politics of left and right.
However, I am registered as a Democrat and I will certainly vote for Hillary Clinton if she is the democratic nominee.
The big event for me here is the forthcoming issue of What Is Enlightenment? Magazine, which is publishing a feature interview of me this month called "Integral Politics Comes of Age." In the interview I do my best to advocate world federalism in and I hope it is well received. I will send you a PDF of the article once it comes out.All the best to your family too.
