The Declaration of Interdependence
We the people of the world do herewith declare our interdependence as individuals and members of distinct communities and nations. We do pledge ourselves citizens of one CivWorld, civic, civil and civilized. Without prejudice to the goods and interests of our national and regional identities, we recognize our responsibilities to the common goods and liberties of humankind as a whole.
We do therefore pledge to work both directly and through the nations and communities of which we are also citizens: To guarantee justice and equality for all by establishing on a firm basis the human rights of every person on the planet, ensuring that the least among us may enjoy the same liberties as the prominent and the powerful;
To forge a safe and sustainable global environment for all -- which is the condition of human survival -- at a cost to peoples based on their current share in the world's wealth;
To offer children, our common human future, special attention and protection in distributing our common goods, above all those upon which health and education depend;
To establish democratic forms of global civil and legal governance through which our common rights can be secured and our common ends realized;
To foster democratic policies and institutions expressing and protecting our human commonality;
and at the same time,
To nurture free spaces in which our distinctive religious, ethnic and cultural identities may flourish and our equally worthy lives may be lived in dignity, protected from political, economic and cultural hegemony of every kind.
