The Declaration of Principles.

    `DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES for Freedom, Prosperity and Peace.

    `We, citizens, former officials, and representatives of governments and private entities, united by common values, have agreed as follows:

    For seven decades, free nations have drawn upon common principles to advance freedom, increase prosperity, and secure peace. The resulting order, built on the foundation of democratic values and human dignity, has brought better lives for our citizens and billions of people around the world.`

    The above is an excerpt from the Atlantic Council and CIGI, (Centre for international Governance Innovation). These are two research institutions that influence the leaders of today.

    Former officials and representatives of government such as Madeline Albright (former secretary of State, USA) Stephen Hadley, (Former national security Advisor, USA) Gareth Evans, (Former Minister of Foreign affairs, Australia) Allan Rock, (Former Minister of Justice, Canada), David Miliband (Former Foreign Secretary, UK), and many others from around the world gathered together to formulate this Declaration of Principles.

    There is much talk of rights, security, prosperity, justice and rule of law. There is the real drive to get all peoples and nations to join and implement these principles. Yet hidden amid all these `fine and noble` statements we find that there is a very serious agenda.

    `Principles are not self-executing. Working with all who are ready to join us, we will develop a plan of action to implement these principles and advance our common goals……

    We will establish a standing mechanism to track compliance with these principles and call out those that are seeking to undermine them.

    We will urge our governments to act when these principles are violated.

    We will stand firm behind our principles and work together to advance freedom, prosperity, justice, security and peace for all nations.`

    The Principles include -

    • Ensure equal protection and non discrimination with regard to race, religion, ……sexual identity.

    • Support the peaceful settlement of disputes…& refrain from use of force, except as just and necessary to advance these principles.
    And much more involving climate, environment, food, water, medical supplies, etc.

    We have had the Global Principles for a while - tolerance, inclusiveness, respect, etc but interpreted by man and not God. Now however we will see that anyone who does not comply with these Global Principles will be penalized. No wonder the Rugby player in Australia, (Israel Folau) was stood down from his position, for he violated these principles. He quoted the Bible of who would go to hell, including homosexuals. Thus he was discriminating against those with that sexual identity.

    And the enforcing of these Principles will not end there…….

    Simple questions...

    - what is the relationship between this body and the UN.

    - From where do they assume the right to have authority over Governments?

    The UN is certainly involved and the lie that it was the United Nothing is over and the UN is increasing while national sovereignty is decreasing. There are other lists of principals like the UN earth charter, adgenda 21, the rio summit and they have think tanks and Non Profit Organizations that partner with associations of city counsels and governors to implement into legal action the laws derived from these principals. For instance UN agenda 21 has maps and zoning plans for the whole world then in places like California they have round tables with city planners and we see our zoning falling in line with their maps. We are designated for high density housing and you cannot believe the number of town home clusters going up everywhere. Psalm 2 nails it. The nations are taking counsel together against the LORD and trying to cast off the bonds of Christianity

    Why do the nations rage,
    And the people plot a vain thing?
    2 The kings of the earth set themselves,
    And the rulers take counsel together,
    Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying,
    3 “Let us break Their bonds in pieces
    And cast away Their cords from us.”
    4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
    The Lord shall hold them in derision.
    5 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
    And distress them in His deep displeasure:
    6 “Yet I have set My King
    On My holy hill of Zion.”
    7 “I will declare the decree:
    The LORD has said to Me,
    ‘You are My Son,
    Today I have begotten You.
    8 Ask of Me, and I will give You
    The nations for Your inheritance,
    And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
    9 You shall break[fn] them with a rod of iron;
    You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ ”
    10 Now therefore, be wise, O kings;
    Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
    11 Serve the LORD with fear,
    And rejoice with trembling.
    12 Kiss the Son,[fn] lest He[fn] be angry,
    And you perish in the way,
    When His wrath is kindled but a little.
    Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.

    Hi Carl,

    Very good questions. Brian has answered that and I will add some later. As to your second question concerning authority -

    `You know that the rulers of the gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them.` (Matt. 20: 25)

    Much to discuss. Marilyn.

    Hi Carl,

    Your first question. The relationship between this body and the UN. This is their seventh statement -

    SEVEN Collective Action.

    We affirm the right of all people to cooperate in support of these principles and to work together to advance them. Governments, private entities, and individuals should seek to advance these principles by supporting;
    - Partnerships, coalitions and alliances that bring together like-minded governments, including a potential new alliance of free nations.
    - Public-private partnerships and coalitions that bring together governments, private entities, and other stakeholders.
    - International institutions and agencies, INCLUDING THE UNITED NATIONS, that aim to foster dialogue, cooperation and shared responsibility between nations.

    Your second question. Their authority? It is of themselves, of many nations and emotionally and eventually economically motivating people to come under these values and support the United nations, and international institutions, (IMF, World Bank, etc etc)

    regards, Marilyn.
