of the Earth
A. Human history on planet Earth has reached its final cross-roads.
Human beings can continue on the road to imminent perdition, or
we can rise to a new level of civilization for the Earth. This
manifesto clearly describes that cross-roads for all who care
to see and hear. Our message is not a confused and sentimental
longing for a better world as is so often heard today from groups
seeking to protect human rights, or advance democracy, promote
peace, or address poverty and disease. Our message is clear, precise,
and specific. The reasons we are on the road to imminent perdition
can be easily understood. And the reasons for the Earth Federation
are clear, compelling, and decisive. This manifesto is about that
choice. Time is running out when this choice will be available
to us. The time for firm decision is now. There is no other time.
B. This choice is not an arbitrary or irrational
one. For holism, unity, emerges as the fundamental insight of
every twentieth-century revolution in science. The Einstein revolution
showed that nature and the cosmos must now be understood holistically.
And Quantum physics has shown this to be true on the sub-atomic
level. On both the macro and micro levels, our universe exhibits
unity as a seamless, interdependent field of space/time/energy/matter.
Ecology and the biological sciences have also demonstrated holism
at every level of living nature, including the encompassing ecosystem
of the Earth.
C. The only sphere where fragmentation, division,
and reductionism remain is the sphere of human social life in
the system of territorial nation-states and the global economic
system of violence, greed, and non-cooperation. It is no accident
that Einstein was an outspoken advocate of planetary federal government.
He understood the inescapable holism of the world we live in.
The choice before us is to convert our thinking to holism (the
unity and interrelatedness of all persons on the Earth) or to
continue into destruction with our fragmentation and violence.
This holism is embodied in the Constitution for the Federation
of Earth through a dynamic and comprehensive relationship of unity-in-diversity.
We must immediately choose the holism of federal world government
or we may soon perish from the Earth.
D. Today, a creative groundswell in the movement
for a sane federal world order is making the current lords of
the Earth tremble in their corruption and fragmentation. The people
of the world are awakening to the lies and distortions of the
media, their subservience to power, and the corrupt interests
defending the old rotten order while destroying the Earth for
future generations. We citizens of the Earth Federation are the
spokespersons of this new world order predicated on wholeness,
democratic values, and the common good of all persons on Earth.
They may imprison or kill us as individuals, but the groundswell
of awakening among the poor of the Earth is unstoppable. We are
poised at a crossroads for humanity. We must choose wisely - for
humanity - or we may perish from the Earth.
