What is world federalism?

Federalism: A government system where states/provinces are subordinate to a central governing body.

World Federalism: A centralized global government system where nations would play a subordinate role under a world government, where all officials would be elected to their positions.

In this new global government, local problems would be allowed to be solved locally, national problems solved nationally, and global problems solved globally. State sovereignty would still be respected.

The Pillars of World Federalism
Our world federation will be built on the principles of democracy, republicism, secularism, and federalism

Together these concepts support a worldwide structure that can tackle today’s most pressing problems

Democracy

In our global democracy, citizens will have a voice in the affairs of their government through a variety of means, such a congress or parlimentary body. That creates laws and holds free and fair elections for every nations. as free and fair elections.

republicism

Each  nation and region on Earth is provided with elected officials to represent their interest.

In our democratic-republic supreme power is held by its citizens and exercised by elected officers and representatives who govern according to law. Republics are governed by  law, and not  ruled by dictators, monarchs, oligarchs, aristocrats, or theocrats.

Secularism

Our global government will be secular in order to respect the freedom of people’s beliefs.

With over 4,000 world religions including atheists and agnostics. Our secular government can help eliminate the pitfalls of religious extremism, and allow religious communities to flourish peacefully without interference. This will help prevent unwanted wars because of religion.

federalism

Solverign nations joining together under one central world governing system.

Our government allows nations to join together in while still maintaining their national governments. Because international problems cannot be resolved by the nations unilaterally. The world’s nations will join together as one to deal with dire problems.

“Humanity is reaching its most advanced stage, the era of maturity, characterized by cooperation among men in contrast with the antagonism of the past.”

Dr. Francesco Stipo, World Federalist Manifesto (2007)

The Key Areas where we need to make change.

Supporters of World Federalism

Bono

“We’ve all heard about globalization of power and globalization of profit and globalization of greed until we’re blue in the face… It’s time to balance the books with globalization of peace, globalization of freedom and justice, globalization of prosperity and opportunity. If we want it, we can have it.”

Al Gore

“There’s an old African proverb that says “‘f you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.’ We have to go far — quickly. And that means we have to quickly find a way to change the world’s consciousness about exactly what we’re facing, and why we have to work to solve it.”

Pope Francis

“To build peace also means to work actively for the care of creation… The efforts made in recent times to respond to climate change will meet with increased cooperation on the part of all, for the earth is our common home, and we need to realize that the choices of each have consequences for all.”
