Unified Human Government
|Summary||One universal and local system of government is a long standing answer to many of the problems that plague humankind.|
|Details|| Great minds and our collective experience have illustrated the need for a common system for managing our affairs for a very long time now. The main questions are what is the best system we can create and how to go about doing it. This solution suggests that we convene online in a global forum to consider the best proposals from all people who are willing and able to participate then put together the details and just start building it online and start using and promoting the principals developed into a working system without waiting for permission or any expert to guide us.
The current state of the world is very similar to the birth of the united states of america under the articles of confederation, the United Nations is our international confederacy with all of the flaws inherent in a weak central and undemocratically elected government with no power to create and carry out justice according to common laws. The abuses rampant in a globally unregulated exchange of money. Civil war, dictatorships, totalitarian governments and the general human abuse, terror and murder that are allowed in failed states all over the globe is an untenable situation. Sooner or later we must band together into a common system of law and trade and recognize our collective and individual rights and responsibilities. In order to deal with the issues that face us as a species of life on earth that no know borders there is no other rational way towards a common survival than a common government.
A unified human government as a solution is one built by the people that want to build it. It does not depend on any official government sanction to begin. Such a government could come about through organizing an international political movement that adopts a completely open and egalitarian approach to government of the people, by the people, for the people. If enough people want it we can create it.
There are many groups working for this and historically there has been a great deal of support for the general idea. If you think about how the current defacto world government or the UN is similar in nature to the Confederacy (with all of it's attendant issues) which lead to the creation of the USA then I think again, history is pointing towards it in our future and that future due to many factors (economic, legal, environmental, energy etc) are pushing us inexorably in that direction.
The tipping point will be the people of the world uniting (at least in majority) for it and the only banner to rally them that makes sense to me is to make it of the people, by the people, for the people in a way and on a scale that hasn't been accomplished just yet.
