Education as a right or a privilege?

Families with money can afford to send their children to college, but what about the other 99%? The Earth Constitution's Bill of Rights calls for "free and adequate public education available to everyone," and equal opportunity for anyone who seeks a higher education.  

Can the world community afford education as a right?  Very easily with an end to massive military budgets.

With the Earth Federation's peace system, the Pentagon would not be buying "2,443 F-35 joint strike fighters" at $133 million each, a cost complained about in a recent AARP Bulletin for senior citizens. Strike fighters terroize, and educate no one

Less Government or Good Government? 

An AP story by Jenny Barchfield (2/2/12 SF Chronicle) describes how Rio De Janeiro is "crumbling" over the last year while Rio tries to get ready for the Olympics. 

Editor's commentary:  Rio's unregulated system amounts to having "less government" -- and it hurt Rio.   (read on OPINION)

Twitter announces new way to censor individual tweets
in specific countries reports the San Francisco Chronicle.  Twitter, Facebook, and Google must deal with local laws, customs, and political agendas varying from nation to nation in regard to  Internet content.       

Editor's commentary:  Attempts by countries to censor free speech have serious implications.  Democracy requires that political speech, in particular, be protected.  This issue will require thoughtful attention from the Earth Federation Movement.

Dinosaur Party presidential candidate Mitt Romney may be eating his words as "monster storm" Sandy chews up the East Coast. This "worst storm ever" may cause Romney to back off from energy policies calling for more oil, fracking, and coal. 

Will the Dinosaur's finally decide to heed the warnings of scientists regarding climate change?

The Earth Federation's World Parliament under the green friendly Earth Constitution leads the way as a model for world governance since it would provide the means to regulate appropriately those nations and multinational corporations that avoid living up to needed environmental standards.

May 26, 2012

An important new book "Classified Woman" exposes how an unconstitutional "state secrets privilege" was invoked to cover-up crimes by high government officials and certain members of Congress. FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds refuses to remain silent having evidence of deep corruption in high places -- the Pentagon, State Department, Congress, and the FBI itself. The 9/11 truth movement appears to have been justified in its warning that the 9/11 Commission Report was full of omissions and the Report's conclusions could not be trusted.

Editor's comment: An advantage of having Earth Federation government is that in a nation with a corrupted judiciary and government, the Earth Federation's Office of World Ombudsmus could be utilized by whistleblowers to obtain an independent investigation, particularly important if authorities are attempting to cover-up criminal activities. The World Ombudsmus under the Earth Constitution is given authority to investigate and if justified, to prosecute.

Understanding militarization, war, core
masculinity, and loss of empathy

Professor Kathleen Barry's latest book "Unmaking War, Remaking Men" offers a worldview which challenges the traditional masculine values seen in the world's fixation with violent solutions over peaceful cooperation and empathy. 

Core masculinity is seen to harbor "contempt for women." Soldiers are taught sociopathic traits and are expendable.

Why Americans need the Earth Constitution

Despite the fact that health care is a "life or death" issue for many unlucky citizens, the US continues to debate if seeing the doctor, or the dentist for that matter, should be a public right, or another domain owned by private Money.

Why we need world federal government


The headlines these days make it clear that the conflict between Israel and Iran may move beyond economic sanctions against Iran.   Israel has stated it may attack Iranian nuclear facilities.   Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has warned that any attack would be met with retaliation.
