Dear friend,

My name is Manuel Herranz, founder of HUM – Human Unity Movement. Our first proposal has been to call for an open and transparent Congress of experts dealing on the establishment of human unity because we understand that if we, humans, unite in an inclusive decision-making system we will only look for the common benefit and will avoid and prevent mutual harm.

However, that Congress has not taken place because is better and needed to face reality and act accordingly:

  • The cause of humans discord is the weapon, objects to kill, necessarily organized in armed units or states.

  • Human concord and cooperation are the consequence of disarmament, which can be only universal -something only possible in our time.

  • For disarmament we need to unite all arms, since they are only because/against each other (the weapon is by itself), united they are unnecessary, redundant.

  • Therefore, I am assuming command on all arms and require acknowledgment of each arm conditional to the acknowledgment of all.

  • A single command ends with harm and threat since even that command cannot cause it, since that would be to harm itself.

  • From it follows the use of common sense, this is human equality and the (best) use of all resources for common good, so that private property becomes redundant too.

(Indeed, without the armed enforcement there cannot be private property, the arm is the necessary cause of private property which cannot exist without violence. But even more, the arm is the sufficient cause of private property because the arm is to kill and therefore cannot be shared and all the things are private property because this is the way they all serve a particular army or state)
  • I am at your disposal for clearing or detailing what you might need with openness and transparency.

Some intelligent people of the past saw and understood that Peace and Love are the same as Human Unity or inclusive decision making because logically and obviously in this way (mutual) harm is excluded and, best, it brings about the use of common sense, this is, to treat others as we would like to be treated. But the vision of those people was only a dream, a hope in an unknown and incommunicado world.

And those people’s works could hardly have continuity because, in the past, beyond being human unity an inviable proposal in an unknown world, common sense weakens the state, something clearly exposed by Socrates’ case, and so is it that we hardly have references of this so simple, logical and evident way to put an end to human misery.

However, today with the current global interconnection allowing us to act simultaneously, universal peace and love are already possible, and promoting human unity or common good is no longer prejudicial to the state since it affects all states in the same manner.
