Do you want world peace? If so, how do you think world peace can be achieved?

Most people understand that world peace will not automatically “just happen” as if by magic or by waiting for someone to bring it about. It will be a process of design, integrity and purpose.

While it’s a common notion that peace must first be obtained within ourselves, before a world without war is possible, it is actually not necessary to wait that long. Individual and collective peace can develope side by side and promote each other.

Some think that a “group of leaders” can do it for us. The United Nations has been looked upon by some as the “group of leaders” that can create world peace.

However, since the United Nations was created more than sixty years ago, it's becoming more apparent that they have failed.

After acknowledging this, some claim that yet another international organization needs to be created to replace the United Nations and achieve world peace.

But, really, how can any “group of leaders”, created on a world level, achieve world peace without the consent of, and the cooperation of, the People of the World?

All the futile attempts to “impose” world peace from the top-down originate from the lack of means to do it grass roots up. Until recently we had no means to include all the people in decision making processes. But this has changed.

So, how does it all start?

Whatever we believe the solution to world peace is, we start to assemble with the other like-minded peace-loving people. And if everyone is to be respected equally (as equal co-Sovereigns or co-Grantors and not citizens/subjects or co-Trustees or Beneficiaries), everyone needs to have open access to the decision-making process - knowing, at the same time, that not everyone will participate. Hence, a sufficient number of people need to agree to use a particular decision-making method in which to make decisions together on each geopolitical level.

Please keep in mind, however, that each of these levels will have a government structure created by the People. Within this structure the People can elect or appoint certain Deputies amongst themselves to carry out as directed certain clearly identified duties for different seats of government. So “everyone” will not be involved in making “all” the day-to-day decisions in every seat of government. It’s just important to understand that the ultimate authority is always retained by the People, and they may intervene at any geo-political level, at any time, to make right what may have gone wrong - rather than having to wait till the next election to possibly vote someone else into that government seat (in hopes that a replacement will perform better). This is just being responsible and it’s responsibility that leads to peace.

Before considering the various on-line decision-making methods that have been developed over the years, there’s something important to consider.

Many have come to the somewhat obvious conclusion that a “vessel” needs to be created first. This “vessel” will have the capacity to hold any number of decision-making systems that can be easily interconnected. This will allow the People in each geo-political level to select a decision-making technology of their own choice - all of which will all be interconnected (using the same data bases). This vessel will also allow all the various geopolitical levels around the world to be interconnected at the same time. Therefore, everything will be transparent and everyone can learn from each other’s experiences by a simple search function.

So, there are people currently forming two groups that may be called “passion groups”. These groups are made up of people who have a specific passion they wish to nurture, grow and share. One passion group consists of those who are building the “vessel” by interconnecting all organizations who share the goal of world peace (this may even include the existing United Nations organization). The second passion group consists of those who are building the on-line decision-making technologies and figuring out how they can all be interconnected.


The organizations currently focusing on, and formally declared to be committed to, the possibilities of creating the “vessel” are:
