A Mechanism for the
the International Order
Statement of Principles for a World Supreme Council
This proposal and 'Statement of Principles for a World Supreme Council' is addressed to the leaders of the world for when they gather together in a world convocation after nuclear World War Three to form a world government - a New World Order - that will assure Unity, Justice, Peace and Prosperity for the whole of humankind.
After World War One the world formed the League of Nations and after World Two it formed the United Nations - both with the idea of assuring peace while maintaining the 'sovereignty' of nations. Obviously that idea did not work. Unless the world wishes to try for World War Four, and the same result, now is the time to do something different because it is considered a scientific truism that repeating the same actions will have the same results as previously.
What is proposed here is a World Supreme Council. Not a Council of nations, not a league of nations, not a union or uniting of nations, because the nation concept as regards the sovereignty of nations is the very element that assures failure for any prospects of establishing and maintaining peace. In this proposal National identities may continue and do their own thing - so long as they do not interfere with the mechanism described here.
The form of New World Order, proposed here, can bring about Unity, Justice, Peace and Prosperity to the whole of the remnant of humankind - and their descendants. All that is needed is the selection of leaders who see themselves as citizens of the world and who put forth the needs and concerns of the whole of humanity over that of some particular national, religious, racial, or class identity. The whole of humanity must then be educated in this global concept.
The first and foremost need of the planet is for all its inhabitants to become unified. Unification does not mean homogenization. There can still remain all the variety of religions, cultures and races, and even greater variety may develop, but all the flowers of the garden must be allowed to grow in peace.
There must be continuous progress towards each and every individual of the planet identifying themselves as being a citizen of the entire planet and, most importantly, recognizing ALL the other inhabitants as citizens of the planet also, and having all the same rights as themselves.
The world leaders must not only be leaders in the sense that they have authority, but more importantly they must be leaders in thought - in being foremost to recognize and teach the unity of all the citizens of the planet in their concern that all the citizens of the planet come to desire unity and justice for all the world's citizens.
Let then, those who gather together to rescue and reconstruct civilization be of global and humanitarian mind, as has just been described, and let them consider the following manner of accomplishing this desired goal.
No ratification by the nations or peoples of the world is needed because all the nations of the world have already unanimously ratified the World Charter of Rights and Freedoms which this mechanism implements and because this mechanism provides for the first time the means by which every individual on the planet will be equally provided with the means of modifying it.

Any higher in-line Council may at anytime

regarding any Council's boundaries
or any other decision
then the decision that is binding is that
of the highest in-line Council making a decision.

C4. The most recently elected designate
C5. On March 21st of each year -
D1. All persons within a grassroots community
D2. Balloting is always by secret ballot -
D3. Elections and decisions are always by majority vote.
D4. If a majority does not elect or decide on a ballot -
D5. Only the nine members of any Council can vote
D6. Only present members of the Council
D7. No one can be elected to the same higher Council twice
D8. Higher Council members can move about

D16. A Council may determine,
D17. In this system, every individual has equal value in their vote and there is no emotional campaigning, no allegiances or alliances created by campaign funding, and no time or effort wasted in seeking campaign funds or support to remain in Council.
D18. In this system, terms expire automatically without possibility of renewal and Council members have not this reason to be subject to bribes or pressure and should therefore vote only their consciences.
D19. Councilors have no authority individually, but only in their collective vote, except for such temporary responsibilities designated to them, from time to time, by a Council.
E1. The Councils embody the Legislative, Judicial, and Administrative authority of their level. This system eliminates any conflicts of balance of power between various functions because all functions are embodied in the Councils and each Council has supreme authority over the Councils below it.
E2. The Councils at each level are elected from and by the members of the Council below them assuring all the way to the grass roots that the Councils reflect the best of the qualities and attitudes of the Councils below them and providing a truly universal democratic process of representation. Those voting for Council designates should strive to develop a growing maturity in selecting people of the highest spiritual and social qualifications.
E3. The actions, regulations, and decisions of any Council may be reviewed and modified by any of the Higher Councils in their line ascending to the World Supreme Council but a higher Council cannot reject or refuse to seat a lower Council's designate.
E4. Review and modification of the actions, regulations, and decisions of any lower in-line Council is not dependent upon an appeal to the higher in-line Council and any higher in-line Council may initiate any action that they wish, subject only to the implicit or explicit instructions of a still higher-in-line Council.
E5. Regulation and administration should be done on the basis of Stated Principles rather than by statute, by-laws, or other such legal mechanisms.
E6. Each level of Council should reform or restate ALL of its Principles and goals at least every five years.
E7. Each Council is responsible for holding monthly assemblies of the 81 members of their electing Councils in which they will explain the Council's principles, goals, decisions, and recommendations and in which they will listen to the recommendations of the electing Councils.
E8. All Councils will consider the recommendations of their electing Councils but they are not bound to abide by or conform in any way with the recommendations.
E9. All Councils are bound to abide by the directions of all Higher in-line Councils. Should a Council feel there is a conflict in the directions of intermediate Councils then the direction of the highest Council giving direction will take precedence.
F1. The Judicial System is to be one of restorative justice rather than administrative justice.
F2. Restorative Justice works on the basis of consultation to find a healing process for all parties although this may include a punishment or corrective process for offenders.
F3. Restorative Justice works upon the basis of Principles rather than legislative acts, rules, regulations, laws or by-laws because laws and legalism often work against Principles and Justice.
F4. Restorative Justice dispenses with
F5. Justice that must be determined by justice professionals is not justice but legalism. Justice can be determined through consultation among decent, intellectual, just, spiritually minded individuals who at each higher level have been selected by their peers at the previous level as having best reflected those characteristics. They can call upon scientific and technical experts for fact and opinion where necessary.
F6. Each level of Council is responsible for the protection of the Freedoms and Rights of all people in its area - all being subject to any required review and modification of the highest in-line Council that wishes to intervene.
F7. Each level of Council is responsible for the teaching of all people in its area regarding the World Charter of Rights and Freedoms along with the responsibility of each individual regarding those rights and freedoms - all being subject to any required review and modification of the highest in-line Council that wishes to intervene.
F8. Any Council or any individual may appeal to any in-line Council. It is at the Council's discretion whether or not they will hear an appeal unless the appealed Council is ordered to do so, or to not do so, by a still higher in-line Council.
G1. Each level of Council is responsible for Property and Credit Entitlement within its area in accordance with any policies and procedures of higher in-line Councils.
G2. Each level of Council is responsible for a monetary system at its level limited only by any policies and procedures of higher in-line Councils.
G3. Each level of Council is responsible for full employment in its area limited only by any policies and procedures of higher in-line Councils.
G4. Each level of Council is responsible for the economic well-being of all people in its area - limited only by any policies and procedures of higher in-line Councils.
G5. Each council may administer and execute its policies directly or through Commissions of it's appointing.
G6. All members of all Commissions serve at the pleasure of the Councils that appoint them and can be replaced or discharged at any time by the appointing Council or a higher in-line Council.
G7. All policies and decisions of any Commission are made at the pleasure of the appointing Council and may be changed at any time by the appointing Council or by a higher in-line Council.
G8. Commissions having been mandated by Councils to act upon the Council's behalf - the Commission's policies, actions, and decisions are therefore the same as if they were initiated, instituted or implemented by the Council itself.
G9. If so directed by the Council, a Commission may also perform the judiciary function of the Council. The Commissions may thus be perceived as thematic courts dealing with the arbitration, resolution or judgement of matters related to the Commission's particular theme. Conflicts between rulings of different Commissions should be resolved by the Council at the appropriate level as well as should be any appeals.
G10. World Supreme Council Resolutions are binding
Non-compliance with Council and Commission decisions at any level may initially be the most difficult problem facing the Councils. This problem should diminish as the Councils' prestige becomes recognized and their authority recognized, but in the interim it will take the utmost skill and wisdom to achieve compliance with their judgement and decisions. They will have several tools at their service.
G10b. Isolation of non-performing and non-complying entities, organizations, Councils, areas, or whatever identifiable groups that are the problem. These can be trade, participation, or such other sanctions as may be devised.
G10c. Penalization of non-performing and non-complying entities, organizations, Councils, areas, or whatever identifiable groups that are the problem. These can be trade, participation, or such other sanctions as may be devised, including the withholding of entitlement, assistance, recognition, and removal of authority.
G10d. Lastly, the collective use of force by the higher in-line Councils, using all the resources necessary within any elements of their in-line areas, to bring the recalcitrant entity into compliance.
G10e. But - first and foremost Councils should use the principles of praise and incentive to encourage as compared to the previous system of law that sought to find, judge and penalize violations. Both regarding individuals and other entities there can be those who are saints, sinners, and satans. The principle should always be to encourage the saints, direct the sinners, and restrain the satans. Contrary to the previous system in which there was almost no effort to encourage or support the saints - that should be the primary effort and tool of this system.
for the World Supreme Council
and for lower level Councils
Any Council may decide, unless directed differently by a higher in-line Council, to implement or not implement Commissions similar to the following or for that matter still other Commissions of a completely different nature or purpose.
A. Authority Commission -
a2. To define the responsibilities of all the Council's Commissions - and if desired - those of Commissions at lower levels.
a3. Commissions should be made up
a4. Commission appointees motives
a5. Ideally, all members of all
within the Council's area boundaries
subject to the implicit or explicit approval
of the highest in-line Council
that wishes to make the decision.
c2. All elections to any Council are subject to monitoring
c3. Increasing standards for Council participation may be imposed at each level as the voting base is pressed democratically downwards. Those higher Councils which are not democratically elected in process from the grass roots base will still be permitted to elect designates to the next higher level Council but their designate, while seated and participating in the consultation, should not be permitted to vote.
c4. Based upon its compliance and attainment
of the standards
c5. If desired, the weight of a designate's vote on a Council
e2. Listening to and gathering information from leaders of religion and moral teaching.
e3. To assure universal literacy and as free as possible universal access to technical and scientific education at all levels.
Similar Commissions may be appointed by Councils at each level but their policies, standards, decisions and reports are subject to review and any differences from those of the higher levels are to be duly noted therein.
i1a2. Entitlement shall be passed on through inheritance, only at the pleasure of the Councils and concentrations of wealth shall be limited as deemed fit by the Councils.
i3. Councils must always strive to balance a number of apparently opposing principles:
i3b. Individuals endued with entitlement must feel secure in their entitlement and authority and must not in any way fear arbitrary encroachment upon that entitlement and authority.
i3c. Nevertheless, Councils must assure that the general good is served and that overall injustices and inefficiencies do not arise by some misapplication of monopoly or over competition and are free to adjust entitlements and authority as they see fit.
must develop and implement plans
suitable to their own needs -
and they need delegated authority
to utilize local resources -
(natural, physical, intellectual)
including the ability to determine entitlement.
k2. Councils should be free to impose lesser remedies to whatever extent that they feel that they can afford them and that the lesser remedies do not create a danger to society. Higher Councils may wish to impose restraints or requirements for review before the more drastic measures are imposed by lower Councils.
12b. The 27 members of the Language Commission General Body must initially vote for 5 individuals from among themselves who will be the Steering Committee of the World Language Commission. The first five individuals so elected will draw lots to determine the order of their sitting and each year on March 21st, or on some other date designated by the World Supreme Council, the person in Chair number one will retire and become a Language Commissioner at large with only authority, duties and responsibilities as assigned to them by the Steering Committee.
12c. Election to the Steering Committee will create a vacancy on the Language Commission General Body which be filled in the usual manner described above in 12a.
12d. All appointments (elections) to the Steering Committee and the Language Commission General Body are at the pleasure of the World Supreme Council which may implicitly or explicitly sustain them or remove them at any time - and likewise all decisions, policies, programs, or other activities of the World Language Commission are at the pleasure of the World Supreme Council, which may sustain, revise, or revoke them as it wishes.
12e. The World Language Steering Committee may appoint members of the World Language Commission General Body as chairmen of Committees of experts drawn from, among others, such relevant fields as education, linguistics, economics, the social sciences, and the media, to give them advice and opinion in their selection of the international auxiliary language and the adoption of a common script, and later as to its modification and maintenance.
of all people in their regions and areas

m2. A single global currency
m3. Limitations cannot be imposed by a higher-level
n2. In point of fact, these will often represent a better solution to many situations than would Council appointed Commissions.
n3. Councils therefore have ultimate authority over NGOs operating at the Council's level.
n4. NGO's can be viewed as defacto Commissions, implicitly or explicitly acting under the Council's purview.
n5. NGOs' modes of operation may be left up to the NGOs so long as they do not directly interfere with the accomplishment of Council Goals, and that they abide by the social principles established by the Council.
n6. The Councils, within their level, are free to move functions from Commissions to NGOs or from NGOs to Commissions as they see fit to best attain specified goals or efficiency.
n7. NGOs may spring up to further goals and projects in thousands of different areas dealing with every aspect of human existence from social justice, education, health and medicine, international cooperation, and technical fields of every sort. Far from placing barriers in their way - they should be encouraged and supported.
o2. Responsibility for specific functions should be assigned to specific individuals that serve at the Council's pleasure and who can be replaced at anytime that the Council desires.
o3. The Operating Commission, like all other Commissions, should operate on the basis of continuously published and reviewed principles, rather than on the basis of legalistic procedures.
04. Service within the Operating Commission, and all Commissions, at all levels, should be for reasonably limited periods of time, not exceeding ten years, and with gradual rotation of expert skills from other organizations to assure both continuity and dedication to the goals and principles of the Commission rather than to the organization per se.
p2. Peace should not be a concern of only the World Supreme Council but also the concern of Councils and individuals at every level. All Councils should concern themselves with achieving and maintaining the means of peace at every level below them.
p3. All persons and Councils should be concerned with achieving peace and the causes of peace - everywhere, and not just immediately surrounding themselves.
r2. Higher level in-line Commissions have a responsibilty, and similarly the authority and resources, to achieve the goals of full employment and just distribution of product within all levels in their areas.
* Freedom of expression
* Employment and unemployment
* Medical care and health
grading should cause sufficient embarrassment
to eventually achieve compliance.
s3. Sociologists should establish

t2. All regional and area transportation
t3. A higher Council will be free to determine which nodes of a transportation or communication system, within a lower region or area, are a part of its higher system and will have the authority to regulate those nodes as it feels necessary.
u2. The Universal Rights Commission must assure that the variously designated Charter of Human Rights, Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Bill of Human Rights is equally applied regardless of sex, religion, race, nationality, or culture.
u3. Similar Commissions may be appointed by Councils at each level but their policies and decisions are subject to review and modification by the Commissions at the higher in-line levels.
u4. Separately or in cooperation with the Statistical Commissions the Universal Rights Commissions should measure and publish attainment to the universal standard.
should of course not be tolerated.
Neither should national harbouring of terrorists.
v2. Terrorism - broadly defined as anything
v3. With maturing society -
v4. Other issue areas that might need to be addressed under such a system would include drug trafficking.
x2. Minerals and all natural resources are ultimately the property of the World Supreme Council - in trust for the whole of humanity.
x3. Control of minerals and natural resources may be implicitly or explicitly assigned to Councils at any level, such assignment subject to revocation at any time by higher in-line Councils.
x4. Entitlement to and conservation and exploitation of the resources should eventually rest with specific individuals for such duration as is the pleasure of the assigning Council or some higher in-line Council.
x5. Higher Councils should regulate the use of resources to assure that they are efficiently obtained, that there is not unfair competition in their distribution and use, and that there is justice for all those associated with the involved industries.
y2. Children's welfare and health standards.
y3. Assuring universal education and rights of children.
y4. These Commissions will undoubtedly have to coordinate their activities with other Commissions and with NGOs.
standard equipment for their police and emergency forces.
There should be standard training
for all forces so that the forces
are interchangeable and can supplement one another.
The amount of equipment
and the size of each force
will be regulated by the World Supreme Council
dependent upon the Council's objectives and the areas needs.
z2. Each lower Council's force would be required
z3. The forces at all levels
The alphabetic list of example Commissions is nothing more than that - an example of the types of Commissions and activities that Councils must concern themselves with. At various levels some of the examples may be thought entirely unnecessary while there are many dozens, even hundreds or thousands of others that may be desired in some particular circumstances. Circumstances and needs are always changing.
Many people would like to return to the past. The past did not work because it was defective. It was not just partially defective such that making a few adjustments in the old system would correct it - no, it was totally defective.
The old system needs to be replaced by something quite different. Any supposedly 'balance of power', political party, power politic systems will have the same inherent problems of contention, strife, and the powerful eventually winning at the disadvantage of the less powerful economically, politically, avariciously. We should not want such adversarial systems.
What is proposed here is that the new system should be based upon ever improving Principles, that are being continuously examined and modified as the needs may be. The basic principles seen here are that:
b. Bottom up selection. That higher-level leaders should be selected from the bottom up so that they reflect grassroots interests rather than selecting new leaders with an outlook similarly to those already at the higher levels.
c. Very defined limits to terms of office. This applies in the Councils, in the Commissions and in the administrative organizations, so that there does not arise a bureaucratic mentality of preserving the organization or one's position in the organization rather than serving the intended purpose and goal of the organization.
d. Individual responsibility for Commissions and Enterprises so that decisions are the responsibility of specific individuals rather than soulless committees or corporations.
e. Security in entitlement and authority from the lowest to the highest levels so that decision makers will not feel subject to arbitrary review of, or challenge to their decisions, but that higher authority can still take direct intervention to whatever extent they desire when they feel that circumstances decree that such intervention is the lesser of the two evils.
f. Open sharing and publication of facts and statistics so there can be critical and reasonable evaluation of the reality of all situations.
g. Continuous improvement in establishing universally the Principles embodied in the Charter of Human Rights.
h. A continuous striving to improve upon the spiritual, moral and social principles governing the affairs of humanity.
The Principles presented here are not a final ideal but rather a mechanism for beginning what must be a continuing journey in the progress of humanity towards universal unity, justice, peace and prosperity in accordance with the wishes of its Creator.
