That we may grow and learn, each of us according to our level of consciousness. I do not see that we are weaker because we are separated from other races, please tell me how it could possible help the world to have africa swarm into every civilized nation on earth.From: Gary Kevin Shepherd <gshepher@...>

HiExactly. The boundaries between nation-states are artificial, created by humans for their own purposes, and can be ‘unmade’ by humans just as easily. There is some evidence that ordinary people are deliberately kept divided by the societal elites so that they can be more easily controlled. Whether or not that is true, the fact is that when we are divided we are weaker (“A house divided against itself cannot stand”; “Divide and conquer”) and less likely to be able to confront and surmount the challenges that face us.World Peace and Unity,
GaryGary K. ShepherdEditor, United World MagazineReligions have no boundaries. Business has no boundaries, Education has no boundaries for Employemet. There is no boundaries to Envornment. Animals and Birds are moving without any nactional bounaries. Them why there are boundary restrictions for the different Governments. Why can't we have a single Global GovernmentGood points Richard...While the US encouraged the League of Nations and later the United Nations, it does not so much control it as it exercises 'leverage' which it has by controlling to whom and how US Aid and money is distributed around the world. When it comes to following UN advice.. the US doesn't do it. President GW Bush.. in a speech before invading Iraq, said he would not allow a bunch of third world nations to dictate US policy and so he disregarded the UN inspectors who said wait. Turns out the UN was right.. there were no weapons of mass destruction of any significance..I based my statement on the US rankings in Human development Index, Transparency, and Amnesty International. While the US does have problems, it ranks a whole lot better than many other countries with respect to human rights. Just ask any offender in the legal system and then compare it with elsewhere.. even our neighbor Mexico.One cannot compare human rights in the USA with places like Myanmar, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe, Syria, Algeria, Iraq, Afghanistan and a whole long list of other nations.Pretty much everyone agrees that human rights are best in North America, Western Europe and Australia... and pregressively worse everywhere else.Andres(the other Andrew)AndresWben you say "not even the USA" it may sound to some like the USA has lead the field in human rights in some way. It is my strong view that the USA is one of the worst and leaders in the violation of huiman rights. For a start they are in charge in my view of a system that sistematically pervades endemic human rights abuse practices. The USA is the main contributor the the UN and although the UN is a key institution in the fight for human rights and the human rights act is a very important law, the UN has done appalingly in ensuring it is adhered too and some would say it is ultimately controlled by the US, we should relocate the UN to somwehere independent thinking now for a start, New York is not the place for it. For the human rights act to start to work a few very important people would need to be charged with things such as crimes against humanuity, those charges only seemed to be available for the use against enemies of the current global power structrues. Just for saying this my name will probably be placed on a list somewhere if it has not already.I will never forget when I worked at a meetingt for the United Nations Commission on Sustainability and was refusing to accept the flow which was that everyone was capitualting to the US position of an unsustainable and unjust world. As I passed security the UN Security Guards unusually started to read my papers, they then conifscated my papers with no good reason. I made an official complaint which went no-where. All those papers did was ask for real action on climate change not just an industry based agenda. Funny but the seurity guards that were working on the search area were US security guards, the one I spoke to to complain was also from the US. Although I understand the UN is made up of security from all over the world, the ones I got sight of were US. I wont talk about the time I confronted a leader at a summit about their total lack of respext for people rights at a public meeting where they didnt want me to cofnront thenm with thetruth and 5 minutes later someone asked me in a rather scary way "are you not afraid to die".; That was at a UN meeting in JoBurg South Africa where it would be easy to die unoticed.We need a world governoment but one that is independent and I think that the UN being depenmdent on the US for money makes that a mockery especially when elections in the US are so reliant on industry money making it in effect a nation run by companies whose only interest is profit and making the wealth ywealthier.ThanksRichard LevickiInternational Sustainable Development NetworkI agree with Gary most of the time and specifically on this.
The United Nations passed the resolution in 1948 called The Universal Declaration of Human Rights. To date no nation has honored it completely.. not even the USA. The nations that respect it at all simply honor the parts they agree with.

Far from a first step, I think this kind of strategy scatters and diffuses our efforts, thus weakening our cause.Besides, even if a national constitution guarantees equality to the citizens of that nation, it still says nothing about the treatment of citizens of other nations.World Peace and Unity,

How can one in Indonesia apply for the World Passport?
----- Original Message -----From: Andres EspinoSent: 11/14/12 12:43 AMTo: WorldCitizen@yahoogroups.comSubject: [WorldCitizen] Another use for World PassportDear Group,Across America thousands of people are feeling the economic crunch and thousands more each week are depending on food banks and community help. Winter's outlook is grim.The trouble is, at least in Arizona food banks and kitchens require photo ID to get foodstuffs because they are trying to weed-out illegal immigrants from help. I presume other states may require ID too. With my Hispanic name, I stand out for denial.i was unable to collect this months food bank allotment because I did not have ID, but I went home and got my World Passport (which shows me born in the USA) and returned and they took it without question. The food amounted to between $30-$50 if one had to buy it at the grocery (or unfortunately manage without food).The basic World Passport only costs $45 and is well worth having as secondary ID for these purposes alone, even if one does not travel!As for getting a bank account with it, I was pointed to a poster in the bank that says Homeland Security and the Patriot Act requires a Social Security number from Americans even if they are using a passport. Someone from outside America can open an account with a Passport without a social security number. This is what they explained to me.I KNOW there will be those who cry foul and say no Social Security number is required, but in actual practice I think it may vary from place to place and Bank to Bank... and how far out the manager is willing to stick their neck.OR one might try a foreign owned bank like PNB (Philippines National Bank) in Las Vegas or NYC... or Bank of Venezuela in Miami, NYC or Los Angeles.The World Passport is certainly worth having as a backup ID.Andres(the other Andrew)
