~ Idea 1715 ~

All national constitutions and international charters like the United Nations Charter must be redrafted in view of the fact that they did not take the Earth into account at the time when they were drafted whereas today the Earth has become our priority number one.

These constitutions should also take into account the overriding preoccupation and obligation for peace. Only one constitution, namely the Japanese Constitution adopted after World War II outlaws war as a way of solving international problems. This provision should be adopted by all constitutions on Earth.

Furthermore there should be included in national constitutions the concept of global duties and global responsibilities. Most of them were drafted and adopted at a time when there was no concern about the global world in its totality and responsibilities toward the Earth and the whole of humanity. Another chapter should deal with non-rights or prohibitions, e.g. no nuclear arms and tests, no projects endangering other countries or the world commons (atmosphere, seas and oceans, outer-space).

Robert's Golden Sayings
It is the same with wealth. Cease to admire the wealthy and they will have much less reason to accumulate wealth. When I see flashy sports cars or expensive limousines, I turn my eyes away. I want the owner to know that I could not care less. Why on Earth should I admire a metallic carcass and its owner?

My Testament to the UN
-A Contribution to the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, 1995, Chapter 9

The UN is the first organization in history which defends, world wide, the rights of the Earth, of humanity and of the individual. This is its sacred role, its threefold agenda. UN documents should start with the words:

In the name of the Earth In the name of humanity In the name of the human person.

Someone sent me a horoscope of the UN on its fortieth anniversary. According to the stars, the UN is the Noah's Ark, the structure through which humankind can salvage the best it has created.

Re: [GMW #949] UN World Conference On Violence and the Peaceful Resolution of All Conflicts

Dear Robert and Barbara:
I applaud and completely agree with this recommendation -- it is essential to look at violence from the ground (family) up -- which is of course why I co-founded the Spiritual Alliance to Stop Intimate Violence. Our sourcebook with resources for violence prevention will soon be on our website
I hope this finds you both well, and send you love,

About SAIV

SAIV was founded by Riane Eisler with Nobel Peace Laureate Betty Williams and is a project of the Center for Partnership Studies a not-for-profit 501©)(3) organization recognized as an Non-Governmental Organization by the United Nations.

THE MISSION OF SAIV is to stop intimate violence — the training ground for the violence of war, terrorism, political repression, and crime.

Goals of SAIV

  • Ending the Silence
    Sadly, in many religious traditions the topic of intimate violence is avoided. Yet religious leaders are clearly in an excellent position to affect moral attitudes. Under the direction of SAIV Project Director Jim Kenney (former Global Director, Council for a Parliament of the World’s Religions), SAIV is building the SAIV Council of influential religious, scientific, and political leaders to lend their voices to this issue.

  • Educating the World
    SAIV is using digital media, conferences, networking with organizations worldwide, and grassroots projects to inform religious and spiritual leaders, health professionals, policy makers, teachers, and parents. From statistical facts to best practices and prepared sermons, SAIV will spread the truth about intimate violence and provide tools for its prevention.

SAIV promotes positive action in seven critical ways:

  1. Creating a movement
    Enlisting and leveraging the active support of informed and concerned individuals from all walks of life
  2. Bringing key groups together
    Networking with partner organizations to support existing programs and develop new ones at local, regional, and global levels
  3. Providing the tools
    Developing and distributing materials – including the SAIV CD-Rom – providing statistics, analyses, interpersonal technologies, and links to groups creating positive alternatives to violence in its many forms
  4. Raising a moral voice
    Actively involving global spiritual and religious leaders to speak out against intimate violence and the national/international violence it engenders
  5. Creating a forum for inspiration and action
    The global SAIV Council provides a critical platform for engaging spiritual and cultural leaders, policy makers, and influential activists to promote urgently needed changes in attitudes, behaviors, and policies
  6. Nurturing projects to end intimate violence
    SAIV works with its partners, committed individuals, and the SAIV Council to identify, create, and support existing or new projects to end intimate violence
  7. Generating the materials, momentum, expertise, moral authority, exemplary projects, and practical models necessary to change customs and public policy
    This is the heart and soul of the Spiritual Alliance to Stop Intimate Violence. Every aspect of SAIV supports this vital and realizable goal.

Good morning, dear friends,
As a viewer and appreciator of both Good Morning World and, I note that the quote cited below in your mailing of yesterday was lacking attribution, so that viewers who had not seen the quote on the site would not know that the words are those of Joseph Campbell.
It is good to see that you are including the "Word for the Day" offerings from time to time, and the referrals to the gratefulness website are much appreciated.
Blessings to all,
Liz Stewart
Yes, the attribution was inadvertently not included. Here is the quote with the attribution:

The sin of inadvertence, not being alert, not quite awake, is the sin of missing the moment of life — live with unremitting awareness.
Joseph Campbell
