FOR PERPETUAL PEACE AND A HAPPY LIFE
The year 2020 has united humanity like never before. The sad events caused by the covid-19 pandemic, show how small, fragile, chaotic and unhappy the world is, and imposes awareness on every one of the inhabitants of the planet. The pandemic has made it clear that the political, productive and financial systems do not work because they're based on irrational bases, like the power struggle, exasperated competition, accumulation of enormous wealth in the hands of a few, speculation, violence of weapons and wars.
We believe that the time has come for a reform that will radically change humanity and bring it definitively to peace, righteous sharing and harmony among peoples. The unstoppable advance of globalization gives us the opportunity to act in this direction on a planetary level.
It is therefore essential to create a new paradigm that will ensure social and economic stability in all the continents and therefore we propose to call a world conference, the World Ethic Forum 2020, at which representatives of all nations, none excluded, will participate:
1) Create and reform the supranational organizations with the primary aim of protecting the environment, nature and harmony among living beings. Guarantee all essential goods and services such as food, medicine, education and housing; rebalance traditional forms of property in a proper balance between people's rights and duties.
2) Stopping all wars, destroying and stopping the production of weapons and ensuring enforcement of the principles contained in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
3) Reordering the monetary policies of Governments and Central Banks, solving the Countries’ debt problem, reserving the right to create and print currency only to the Countries, excluding the participation of any private organization.
4) Prohibiting speculative finance and the use of derivative financial instruments, in all areas including currencies, government bonds and commodities.
We are aware that we are now living in an interconnected system that makes a new way of life possible, in which violence and poverty will be eliminated. For the first time in history we can create a "life for free", so that everyone can realize his skills and be happy, able to study and travel, without having to consume their whole life working.
Now we have at our disposal an immense quantity of resources, material and immaterial, financial and monetary, that makes it possible.
All humanity feels a strong need to live according to the ethical rules of friendship and freedom.
The time has come to begin a new era of history.
The more hopeless something seems, the more it is bound to happen.
