Strategy to Open the Door for a New UN and for an Earth Constitution


Roger Kotila, Ph.D. | Earth Federation News & Views – TRANSCEND Media Service

29 Oct 2022 – The United Nation’s primary job is to end war.  It hasn’t worked.  It could not prevent the devastating criminal invasion of Iraq by the US, and now it’s Russia against US/Ukraine.  To add to the frustrating madness, US/NATO promises a future war against China over Taiwan. And despite the new international agreement to prohibit nuclear weapons, nuclear war is feared over the Ukraine crisis.

The articles selected for DWF NEWS in this edition illustrate serious problems that the UN cannot fix.  Take the Cuba story.  Despite years and years of the UN majority declaring that the US economic blockade is illegal and wrong, nothing has changed and the people of Cuba continue to suffer.  The same situation happens with Israel’s oppression of the Palestinians.

Despite a new international agreement to prohibit nuclear weapons, a number of nations refuse to comply.  And multinational corporations/Big Money greed appears to be one of the causes of the inflation hurting people around the world.  Shutting off Russian gas and oil to Europe is another factor.  The UN lacks authority to supervise and regulate opportunistic private capitalism taking advantage of the Ukraine situation.

The Current UN Geopolitical System Has Reached Crisis Levels

What is the solution to these dilemmas?  A small core of world federalist think tanks has developed a strategy which evaluates the flawed UN Charter and compares it to the Constitution for the Federation of Earth (aka Earth Constitution).

THE SAN FRANCISCO PROMISE is the strategy now underway which draws upon the fact that the UN has yet to fulfill the legal requirement of Article 109-3 which requires a review of the UN Charter (see the Center for UN Constitutional Research).

The launching of a General Review Conference can occur in two different ways:

  • A handful of nations informally begin evaluating the Charter by comparing it to the Earth Constitution; or
  • postponing a Review until a 2/3s majority is reached in both the General Assembly (128 needed out of 193 nations) and also the Security Council (9 out of 15).

A serious flaw in the Charter includes the fact that there is no enforceable world law.  When nations are in the conflict the final arbiter is war, not the UN.  In a world federal union, nations in conflict resolve the problem nonviolently by going either to a World Court or to an elected UN World Parliament.  For countries plagued by criminal leaders, under the Earth Constitution they can be held accountable as individuals.  No longer will the leaders of Bully nations remain free to plunder, kill and overthrow other governments.

The chaos and paranoia caused by covert agencies such as the CIA, Mossad, MI6, FSB and the ilk should become illegal.  These secret agencies should no longer be allowed to function above international law.  In a UN world federal union, these intelligence agencies can be utilized for universal inspections to insure disarmament.

The World Constitution & Parliament Association, working with Democratic World Federalists, is educating government officials and politicians on the need for a review of the Charter.  WCPA’s brilliant Constitution for the Federation of Earth is being proposed as a guide and model for a “new UN” once Charter review is launched.

The Ukraine crisis would have never happened if we had a different United Nations Charter.  The UN needs a world federal constitution.

  1. Thank you Roger for your call for a New UN. On 22 April 2022 I published on TMS the article “Is the UN able to promote peace in 2022?” (see text in my blog ) and I sent a letter by registered mail to UN’s Scretary-General Antonio Guterres suggesting that the ecceptional situation in Ukraine would justify an ecceptional action: the temporary removal of Russia from the Security Council, even at the risk of loosing his own job. In the meanwhile, the historicasl UN resolution (L41, 27 Ottobre 2016) prohibiting the existance of nuclear weapons still lacks half of the necessary ratifications from UN’s members. Why such a general timidity toward eliminating an historical stupidity of umanity?
