US, China trade war and companies support for Human Unity Movement

As Mozi said, human miseries an calamities are originated by partiality or, what is the same, by non-inclusive or non-joint decision-taking because partial decision-taking results in that a development of a party is a threat to the others since partial development also increases destructive power or destructive capabilities as weapons.

And that is the explanation of the commercial war launched by the US against China and also of the US conflict with Iran. The sale of Iran’s natural resources allows it to develop also militarily and, even without nuclear weapons capability, this development poses a threat to its neighbors, Saudi Arabia and Israel, supported by US. And so goes on with the rest of the conflicts, to which we can add that friendship and cooperation of some countries with others, such as Venezuela’s with Russia and China, results in threats and enmity with their strategic rivals as USA, etc.

This priority drive for security and thus development at all costs against others, apart from the aforementioned human misery directly derived from the confrontation, makes that some people have to work tirelessly while others have no job, that we are unable to face common challenges such as the deterioration of the environment, the extinction of fauna, climate change, etc., because the opposite interests predominate and subordinate all others issues, leading us to accept mutual destruction and genocide as a way to solve them.

These are the facts and the condition we face and intend to resolve with our Human Unification proposal, with the establishment of a joint and inclusive decision-making system, with a shared projection of our future, so that our objectives are limited only to the mutual and common benefit and the possibility of a harming purpose is discarded, since, together, it would be incongruous as one attempting against himself.

To that end, the Human Unity Movement (HUM) proposes a transparent and open World Congress for 2020 to the whole world where to discuss, agree and establish human unity and a system of joint and inclusive decision-making, as well as the promulgation of a Universal Human Constitution to be there always as a statement of our unification purpose so that everyone can clearly understand and agree with it.

A main issue of the World Congress on Human Unity is the union of all the armed forces under the same command so that they become redundant and disarmament is not only possible but its logical consequence.
With human unity, not only armed organizations, weapons and their development for the damaging or harming become obsolete and are eliminated, but all other objects will stay there only to serve us all and it will help us to implement objective justice and fairness. We all objectively understand what improves an object, so also how destruction power improves a weapon, because we see if it accomplish better its purpose and, at the same time, we understand how this object shall be used, who should be served by it according with his needs or purpose of use, what training is necessary for its use, etc. But also, in the same way that we are now pawns of the weapons which divide us, hierarchize us and discriminate us, the rest of the objects, all meant to serve us, will unite us and equalize us according to a common sense they give us.

In a world where objects are only meant for service, equality or non-discrimination between individuals is not only possible but also its logical consequence since, whatever serves us or is useful implies a standard universal criterion within the reach of any understanding. In the same way that a car is meant to go fast and transport heavy things, if you manufacture a faster, safer car, more capable car, it is a better car, although the suggestion or contribution of those improvements comes from different individuals. That same understanding of service or utility leads us not to discriminate against people in accessing resources according to their needs or purposes or to the management of teams according to knowledge, skills and qualities, as well as the aim of work or cooperation is transparent, shared and common, so that this command does not mean inequality and it can usually be an eventual condition. This concept is exposed as early as by Mozi in IV century BC, but also many other thinkers speak of the only possible peace, harmony o equality as only derived by a common cause, by cooperation.

This is how a system of governance rules in a united world in which we are all equal and in which we all participate equally in it. The politics we know –meant and dedicated to managing violence- under human unity condition is spurious, unnecessary, as weapons are. So, what we have to deal with now is ventures change.

We see that companies are subjected, like everything else, to their respective states and they are just state resources. Many Chinese companies are state-owned companies and Chinese companies are usually accused of sticking to political dictates. American companies, which were considered to be freer than their Chinese counterparts, also comply with their administration decisions as now against China and also they have to align themselves with political measures of boycott or blockade to other countries under the penalty of serious, unbearable fines, so that political affairs reduce their market in contradiction with their own business logic. However, large companies are transnational entities and, therefore, in position to be a reference for humanity if they assume, beyond their CSR, Human Responsibility, that is, making and becoming aware of the human original problem of partiality as mentioned above and, consequently, they adhere to human unity movement.

Companies produce services and supply products that meet our needs and desires and consumers can choose between different offers of products or services according with that seems best for them, but those differences in service and products are not very big and what differentiates most companies is their marketing, their advertising, their adornment, their patronage, their art, the emotion and pleasure they propose and promise, their CSR and all that together has a great influence on consumers when choosing a company to deal with and, therefore, that overall image is companies base for viability and sustainability.

Today, companies can communicate and promise a united world, a world without conflict, where human dignity and happiness prevails and ventures only compete to provide the best possible services and products and are no longer subjects of partial interests as it is happening now. The need and desire of the human union is there, HUM promotes it successfully without any resources, so that we can say the market has been already tested and we have certainty now that if the movement for human unity is supported with some corporate resources, the overall need for human unity will result in a unstoppable development and its scope will be rapidly universal. In consideration of that easy journey, we have set the date of the World Congress as early as autumn of 2020.

As we mentioned before, objects and thus companies equate individuals universally when their service seeks entirely benefit and rejects any harm, but that equality, unlike political equality which is a contradiction, is at the same time maximum empowerment because it constitutes each human being as responsible or supreme head on all armed forces of the world, since this is how, united, these are useless, redundant. This is the treatment that each person deserves and not only from companies, but it must stay at the base of all communications, giving it to understand with everything that by our intention reaches the intelligence of the other, with this we will not only achieve freedom, but harmony throughout the Earth.

HUMAN UNIVERSAL CONSTITUTION DRAFT

HUMAN UNIVERSAL CONSTITUTION DRAFT

PREAMBLE

We understand that humans share the same common sense, that is; the same criterion when judging about other people or about things, and for that reason we can give ourselves this Constitution.

We publish this outline of a Universal Human Constitution in order to give us each other security and guarantees on the foundation of the relationship that we intend and propose to establish, namely; unity, all humans living together, so that we can all support Human Unity with clear conscience of what we do and expect from that it, since we want all people to corroborate and accomplish unity now according with this understanding, as well as to provide an unequivocal reference for future humans.

UNIVERSAL HUMAN CONSTITUTION

We, the people of Earth without distinction and without discrimination and in conditions of equality, give us on ourselves this Constitution that serves as a reference and understanding of our purpose of unity and avoid any confusion or doubt about it now and for future generations.

We intend to unite, to live together, this is: to take decisions jointly and inclusively, projecting our objectives, aims always taking into consideration or account the interests, desires and concerns of all humans without distinction or discrimination.

In this sense, we consider two main aspects, according to human natural motivations:

A CONCEPT OF HUMAN SECURITY whose purpose is to prevent and avoid harm against each and every one of all humans and of life in general.

A CONCEPT OF SHARED HUMAN DEVELOPMENT, whose purpose is to meet the needs, satisfy human desires, develop our capabilities, increase our welfare, benefit and, in short, pursue and achieve the happiness of each and every one of all humans.

  • FIRST: SECURITY

The most important threat and the obstacle to human coexistence and cooperation are weapons, so that eliminating them is our first and main common objective.

To this end, the first step is to put all arms under a single command so that they are redundant, since they are one because of others, and, therefore, united, we can proceed to disarm. Uniting, putting the weapons under the same command, results in that arms cannot take any initiative without permission from that command and, therefore, no harm initiative could be desired or can occur, because in unity any armed initiative would be a damage against itself, and, on the contrary; what is then convenient and appropriate is the agreed, joint and simultaneous disarmament.

The actual execution of disarmament is the adaptation of humans to themselves, that is, to humanity, by developing a coexistence free of violence, based on understanding and voluntary cooperation that will be generated with attention or considering the common human interest, guaranteed by the undoubted greater good that is use of resources for our benefit instead of for harming. Disarmament has to be also carried out by application of human common sense without discrimination based on transparency that generates an objective criterion since arms are meant for reciprocity, they do not make sense by themselves. As also taking into account collateral effects, such as demobilization, recycling, etc.

Now, the first moment to achieve HUMAN SECURITY is the will of each one of us for human unity so that disarmament can take place.

We are all equally responsible for common human security, but we can establish a commission or working group whose task is the study and prevention of possible dangers or threats for humanity as a whole and for each one of the human beings in particular including climatic change, Earth pollution, etc. whose observations always be open, public and transparent and that group can already be the expression of the unity of all the armed forces of the world and coordinate disarmament so that it is carried out by agreement, jointly, reciprocally and simultaneously.

  • SECOND: AIMING AT A SHARED HUMAN DEVELOPMENT

In order to satisfy human needs and desires without discrimination, we need to establish a transparent system of communication and coordination of the best proposals for joint human development, possibly generated or supervised at least by the best experts in the different areas of development. .

The criterion for decision making is based on common sense, that is; taking into account the urgency, the importance, the available resources, with a coordinated planning, etc., considering humanity as a whole without discrimination and so also its current living space, the planet Earth, which must also be preserved, protected and improved, always with total transparency and universal commitment.

As with weapons, the current starting point is the division and human inequality in terms of the availability of resources, so we must distinguish between:

  • The disposition of common human public resources detached from their dependence on a specific weapon or its deprivation by it, to serve the whole of humanity from the moment this unit is constituted or this constitution enters into force. Rational use of resources makes ownership redundant.
  • The inequality in the disposition of resources by individuals, accustomed to very different conditions of life, by which those who are now enjoying privileged conditions can maintain them without any imposition on them, while advancing towards equality or justice in terms of individual disposition of resources for the new generations.
