International Conference, 10-11 December 2018
“Building the World Parliament”
Conference Theme: “The World Parliament and Human Rights”
“The future peace, security, and ordered progress of the world demand a world federation of free nations, and on no other basis can the problems of the modern world be solved. Such a world federation would ensure the freedom of its constituent nations, the prevention of aggression and exploitation by one nation over another, the protection of national ministries, the advancement of all backward areas and peoples, and the pooling of the world’s resources for the common good of all.”
The Earth Constitution as a universal model and blueprint for a transformed World System
Conference Goals and Reflections:
1. We must articulate the need for the world to unite politically in the light of the threats to human existence such as weapons of mass destruction, climate destruction, worldwide wars, and ever-worsening global poverty. How are human rights fundamental to this process?
2. We must understand why and how the Earth Constitution is
essential for uniting the world in these ways. What are its main features? How will it work? What is the role of human rights?
3. We must understand basic structure and functioning of the Earth Constitution and how it deals with war, WMDs, climate change, and poverty. How are human rights related to this structure?
4. We must show how the World Parliament can be established as rapidly as possible and how it will operate to serve this goals for world transformation. What is the role of human rights in relation to the Parliament?
5. We must articulate and actualize the process of ratification. How can we do it as rapidly and efficiently as possible? What can each of us do to make this happen? How are human rights fundamental to this process?
6. We must articulate the process of establishing the Parliament and the ministries of the World Government even prior to ratification (as specified in Article 19). Will human rights be a feature of this process?
