Subject: Feedback and Suggestions – Earth Constitution Draft

Dear Prof Martin,
Dear All,

Please find a review and suggestions to the draft Earth Government Constitution for speedy and effective implementation and functioning in response to the Emergency situation created by the Covid and Climate Lockdowns, Ukraine War, China Uprising and Central Bank Digital Currency with programmable expenditure. Burdened by the legacy of ‘sovereign nation-sates’ in an era of intense globalisation, world government is urgently needed than ever before. It is an idea whose time has come.

2. Design of the Earth Constitution Pg 3

Study of the Constitution for the Federation of Earth reveals that the principle of unity in diversity is built into the structure of the emerging Earth Federation government from beginning to end.

CV: Fully agree with the core principle of Unity in Diversity. I would like to make the following suggestions on the structure and election process for a grassroots-to-global Earth government.

The process should begin with the formation of a Steering Committee with 5-7 members from among founders who are dedicated to this vision and mission and an earliest possible publicly announced timeline in response to the global emergency situation. Starting with the Global Oneness Design 2-member Steering Committee, we should invite 3-5 more members who can work together from a single location – in Rajkot. The Steering Committee will be tasked with raising the funds, talking to state actors starting with the Union Government of India and State Government of Gujarat and to form the secretariat to look after various functions of the Earth Government. 

The Steering Committee will screen all the candidates, who have to fulfill the eligibility criteria for their character and capabilities set and reviewed by the Earth government, as due checks and balances. It will form the Executive body, with a deeply ingrained spirit of Trusteeship, with a World President and Global Council of Ministers.  

I. The World Parliament includes a House of Peoples with delegates from 1000 electoral districts worldwide, roughly equal in population. 

CV: 4000 electoral districts of ~2 million (+/- 10%) population each. These Community-States (CS) based on the LACE (Localized Abundance and Circular Economy) model  are direct democracies where the Head of Community-State is directly elected first through consensus and only if that fails, through voting. The Head will form the Council of Ministers for various roles and responsibiities. They constitute the House of Peoples.  

Ii. The House of Nations includes delegates from all the nations of the world and the Constitution does not prohibit the creation of more nations if we wish to recognize additional diversity among states, for example, a Kurdish state, a Palestinian state, or an Uyghur state. 

CV: 80 Provinces of ~100 million (+/- 10%) each. Each Province is formed with 50 CS.  These 50 elected representatives elect one Head of Province through consensus (including Open House sessions for public consultation) and only if that fails, through voting. These 80 representatives constitute the Legislative Assembly.  

Iii. The third house is the House of Counselors, 200 representatives chosen from 20 World Electoral Regions and again representing the diversity of humankind.

CV: 11 member Peace & Harmony Council, who will mediate in all the conflict zones as well as on contended issues among various parties to meet the overall objective of justice, equality, peace and overall progress of human society. The Steering Committee will screen the nominations for the 11 member council and select from among them. In case, 11 suitable candidates are not selected in the first round, further rounds of nominations will be called. 


Iv. No main agency established under the Earth Constitution is headed by one person. Every agency or department is required to have a presidium of 5 leaders, one from each continental division of our planet.

CV: The Steering Committee in the spirit of Unity in Diversity, will entrust responsibility and authority in single individuals for accountability and decisive action. The House of Peoples and the Legislative Council will have proportional representation from around the world. The Peace & Harmony Council will constitute people with high level of spiritual awakening and intelligence, regardless of their geographical location.

In this light, I would also like to share this presentation adapted from a 1952 declaration by seer-scientist and spiritual leader Sadguru Sadafaldev Maharaj on this link here for your feedback and suggestions.
