ACHIEVING WORLD PEACE THROUGH A UNIFIED, REPRESENTATIVE WORLD GOVERNMENT
Global Initiative 2012 is dedicated to the proposition that for Humanity to survive and flourish as a species, for all the world's citizens to realize world peace, equality, liberty and justice, it is imperative that we find both the way, and the will, to move beyond the inherent limitations of the tribal mindset which predominates the current state of international relations.
We are endangered by antiquated notions of National Sovereignty, by our historically inviolable prerogative to do as we please within our national borders, regardless of the consequence to our neighbors, both near and far, with whom we share this singular planet we all call home.
We no longer have that luxury. Our problems, Globally, are too pressing, too complex to solve burdened by parochial self-interest, counter productive market manipulation, monopolistic resource control, and a general disregard for the welfare, health and well-being of all the Earth's six and a half billion citizens by our elected, selected and self-appointed leaders.
And so, to move forward in a fair, just and equitable manner, one that while respecting the rights of the Individual, still promotes and protects our cultural differences; one which celebrates our unique identities while embracing our shared similarities; one that offers us and our heirs a chance of a future free from want and fear; we must cast aside our entrenched narrow tribal definitions and accept the notion that we are all members of one vast tribe, Humanity, and as such institute a rational system of Unified World Governance.
Working together we can change the world. Through the implementation of a world-wide representative democracy we can bring liberty, justice and equality to all.
World peace is achievable--the way exists, if we have the will.
