Global Governance of the People, by the People, for the People

Good Global Governance (GGG) makes sense. It is safer, more humane and cheaper than the military strength based world order.

On National Security Systems

There are two ways to achieve national security.

In the war system security is based on the law of force. In this, the traditional security system, might makes right. Justice is not a primary concern. Right or wrong, my country is an accepted position. In the war system disarmament and abolition of nuclear weapons are contradictions as they weaken the military force.

In the peace system security is based on the force of law. Global justice is the primary concern. Conflicts between nations are solved in court. In the peace system disarmament and nuclear weapons abolition are natural.

Today, with the existence and proliferation of nuclear weapons the war system for national security is no longer meaningful. It is expensive and threatens mutually assured destruction. A rapid transition to the peace system of national security is urgent. People centered global governance is needed for the transition to law based security of nations.

Open Letter to 195 Heads of State

Open Letter to 195 Heads of State The undersigned congratulate all heads of state on the Climate Change Agreement of December 12, 2015 in Paris. This is a historic event because you subordinated to some extent national sovereignty to the prevention of climate change for the sake of the common good. The undersigned propose to all heads of state an additional and similar global agreement and agenda for international conflict resolution as a renewed commitment to the Charter of the United Nations. The existence of weapons of mass destruction make the replacement of war by the rule of law necessary for preventing the risk of mutually assured destruction.

Respectfully,
On behalf of the Science for Peace Working Group on Good Global Governance for a Just and Sustainable World Professor Helmut Burkhardt, Dipl. Phys., Dr. Rer. Nat., Coordinator helmut.burkhardt@bell.net, www.goodglobalgovernance.org

COP21: Additional Agreement Proposed

On December 12, 2015 all heads of UN member states did sign the global climate change agreement. The normal insistence of nations on absolute sovereignty has softened by virtue of the signing of the climate change agreement. This partial subordination of national sovereignty to the common good raises hopes of achieving an additional agreement on the abolition of war.

The draft open letter below is a plea to all members of the United Nations to reinvigorate their peace effort by creating a similar global agreement for eliminating war. The open letter is to be sent to all Heads of State and distributed widely for drawing public attention to war as an issue of global politics as vital as climate change. Individuals, corporations, governments and non-governmental organizations who agree with it can add their signature on the website.  Here is the text published on the website indicated:

Definition of good global governance

Good global governance is a political order that promotes the welfare of all through  economic, social, demographic and ecological sustainability and justice. It is a people-centered global governance with the mandate of regulating global issues only without interfering in the internal affairs of nations.
