TRUTH IS HERE [03 Dec 2011|04:31pm]

Why do you think it is so hard to burst into to the ranks of elite? You may think they guard so hard the purity of their family bloodlines only out of the idea of preserving the status of their ancestors. It already became a tradition over the centuries. Does it mean people outside of their status are not considered worthy anymore? It all has much deeper reasons than you ever thought of.

..wot a great idea... [13 Jan 2006|12:43pm]

It's called "Since Sliced Bread" and the concept is simple: ask regular people to submit ideas about how to improve life in America for working families. Then vote to find the best proposals, and launch a campaign to make the winning vision a reality.

...a team of volunteers and experts have narrowed the field down to the 21 most powerful and innovative suggestions. The plans range from new ways to provide universal health care all the way to nationwide wireless internet access.

Oh, thank the Universe.

I have just this minute discovered this community, after searching wiith the interest "earth" for just such a community.

When I was a boy of eight, nine, and ten, Star Trek and Buck Rogers gave me visions of a united humanity, with one government. As early as then, the idea of nations and borders, with their correlated wars over lines on maps as well as resources, struck me as the height of absurdity. I looked at the real world and saw that governments were larger than they had ever been before, and that the trend was to cover larger and larger areas over time. It seemed only logical to me that there would be fewer and fewer governments over time, until it was realized that duplication was a waste of resources, and that national divisions only create human ones.

I considered the United States Constitution the best on Earth, and the natural model for the eventual (and, I felt, inevitable) one-world government. When my nationalist uncle railed against the United Nations, I upped the ante by expressing my desire for a one-world government.

We need to get our stuff together on Earth before we can hope to be regarded as anything more than a provincial, infighting backwater.

About me: I am a thirty-five-year-old administrative assistant, photographer, and creative writer in Los Angeles. My wife is an elementary-school teacher for the Los Angeles public-school system.

I have always considered myself, like Socrates, a citizen of the World first and foremost.

Spielberg's "War of the Worlds" [03 Jul 2005|02:53pm]

vanishingemily
Anyone else see Spielberg's new "War of the Worlds" adaptation? I saw it the day it came out, and was very disappointed with the message (or lack thereof) that came across--it certainly WASN'T Wells' philosophy of the new social order/world government that is presumably supposed to arise out of the attack from outer space. (In addition, in Spielberg's adaptation, it isn't even hinted that the aliens are from Mars, or why they are there at all--in the book they are there because their planet is dying [nebular and entropy theories] and they are acting under urgent necessity in an attempt to colonize Earth so that their species does not die out--in the movie, the character who represents both the curate and the artilleryman quotes a phrase from the novel: "This isn't a war; it's an extermination," and that's the most that's said in the movie about why the Martians are there).

I'm not sure if Spielberg just plain forgot, didn't care, or if he had his own personal agenda in creating his adaptation (this is a very critical word here) of Wells' masterpiece. Or, perhaps he was too ignorant to realize that there even WAS a message in the story...I wouldn't any of these things past him.

What do you guys think of the movie (and how it relates to Wells' notion of a "New Republic"), those of you who have seen it or read reviews?

A work in progress [13 Nov 2004|08:35am]

Started at around 5.30am this morning... Thoughts?


n e o t o p i a . o r g



Are the social systems and cultural structures of the early twenty-first century (C.E.) really as good as we can do?

Is it not possible to imagine a new and better society? To envisage an ideal which could potentially become real?

That is the purpose of this community. To propose elements of a new, ideal societies. To have those elements and ideals tested.

Your contributions are welcome.

I found this on community_promo...hope you don't mind a stranger joining and posting. Me and my mom have been researching Agenda 21, the United Nations' blueprint for world government, for a few years..but we think it's bad. We have a website if you are interested in a different view point. Cheers!

Wikipedia has an excellent article on world government. Why didn't I look there first?

The World Federalist Movement "is is an international citizen's movement working for justice, peace, and sustainable prosperity. We call for an end to the rule of force, through a world governed by law, based on strengthened and democratized world institutions. We are inspired by the democratic principles of federalism."

World Beyond Borders doesn't seem to work well in my browser (Safari) but looks like a collection of ideas and links.

WorldGov.info is a discussion forum.

I originally posted the following entry in my personal journal ... then realised that one world government is a subject that will probably occupy my mind for years to come.

If it's of interest to me, maybe it's of interest to others, too. And since I can't find an existing LJ community devoted to this concept, I made one.

This 'community' may just consist of me burbling away happily to myself, and that's fine. If anyone else wants to join in and have a burble, please do! The more, the merrier.

...

I want a meaningful world government. I have huge respect for the United Nations, but when powerful nations can, and do, ignore the UN, we can't really think of it as the ultimate world authority.

I want a world government that can make and enforce decisions on issues that affect us as a planetary community. The big ones are human rights and world heritage, where the UN already has the moral authority, but very little power.

I want us as a planet to find more agreement on the Big Moral Issues of Right and Wrong. It's not okay to torture or kill people. It's a good idea to let people do whatever they want as long as they aren't hurting anyone else. Slavery is bad. Strive to be kind, thoughtful, compassionate and tolerant.

Is it possible to develop and enforce a worldwide set of laws on such issues? The UN has made a start. Let's keep building the strength, authority, and accountability of the UN. Can we make it more representative as well? Using the European Parliament as a model, maybe.

I don't want to abolish the differences between us. I just think that there are many things on which we as a species should be able to agree.

I want to get rid of official definitions of nations. I don't like national boundaries. They might be useful for tourism and administration, but let's scrap border guards and immigration requirements and national currencies.

The European Community has the right idea with a single currency, and relaxing the boundaries between nations. Europe is building a strong entity that other nations are clamoring to be a part of. Can that model spread to engulf the world one day?

We'll still need some smaller form of government to manage local issues and services according to the needs of each community. Schools, hospitals, public transport, utilities, social welfare, and the taxes and rates to support them.

Um, social welfare. That's a huge challenge for any worldwide system. Should there be a minimum living allowance paid to every citizen of the world? I like the idea. But our national boundaries are designed, in part, to keep the poor people away from us rich people, so they can't be too much of a burden on us and our (comparatively) generous social welfare systems. If people are free to live wherever they like, if everyone has an equal right to the means to live, the richer nations are going to feel the pinch.

I'd like that to happen. But when it comes down to the crunch, when I have to give up my three-bedroom house with my three computers, am I going to be quite so sanguine about it?

I don't have any expectation that I'll see a meaningful world government in my lifetime. But the events of the last month have trampled all over my political idealism. I want to take a moment to remember what my ideals are, and why I care.
