Global Stability

A resolution to slash worldwide military spending.

Category: Global Disarmament

Strength: Strong Proposed

Proposed by: Dreudel

Description: International trade, commerce, and civil and political rights are almost always negatively impacted by war. This is especially apparent in the aftermath of the war. Those most affected by war, whether civilians or sometimes even neutral nations, sometimes suffer the most. Global Stability proposes several resolutions that all UN nations should follow in a time of war to ensure the fair treatment of other human beings and nations.

I. Peace proposals must always be arrived at honestly and in full public view. No nations may form secret pacts or agreements after the terms of peace have been arrived at.

II. The seas not within a nation's territorial boundaries should be open to navigation by any nation in the global community, whether in time of peace or war. The only exception to this would have to be based on an international agreement between nations.

III. Trade barriers between nations should be removed and all must be given an equal standing in trade agreements and negotiations. This should, of course, only be the case for those implementing Global Stability.

IV. Any colonial claims acquired through warfare and during time of war must be impartially and open-mindedly be reconsidered with the colony's population's best interests in mind.

V. Attacks on civilians during war should be completely stopped and reparations paid to the families of those accidentally killed or injured.

VI. The UN must afford mutual guarantees of political independence and territorial integrity to great and small states alike.

Global Stability must be followed in full or not at all for the resolution to take its full effects and make the world a better place for all of us.

Approvals: 3 (Dreudel, Tactical Grace, Tuesday Heights)

Status: Lacking Support (requires 139 more approvals)

Voting Ends: Tue Jun 15 2004

Though I really wish people would think of this when they post ... :roll:

Thanks for posting it, I wasn't thinking of posting since I don't really make proposals often...this is just my second and for my first a few months ago I didn't know we could debate them here.

Agreed.

Just saying, "Hey endorse my proposal" doesn't make it seem like that much effort has been given to an idea.

Item III, which my nation is opposed to, has no business in a Global Disarmament proposal.

I suggest it be moved to its own proposal, though I think it is a bad idea to force all nations to remove tariffs without any consideration of nation's rights to decide what products they want to control and which ones they don't.

That is exactly what this forum is for. :)

More importantly, many of us post DRAFT proposals here before submitting them to the queue. That way we get input on what to change and fewer negative comments when we do post the proposals.

OOC: I also like to post links that provide supporting information for the proposals I am really attached too. This doesn't work as well with disarmament proposals, since real-world nations don't exist. Welcome to the forum.

I agree that international trade is screwed up by war but face it as long as man walks the earth, there will always be fighting. There is no such thing as global stability until all of mankind is obliterated off the face of the planet.

i don't buy the pretense of impossibility but i do see devising
a mechanism of enforcement as something of a rather monumental challange.

but such a glorious challange to accept. certainly a more glorious challange then any mere combat itself could ever begin to approach.

the intestinal fortitude to make war has long been proven. can humankind ignore the challange of putting an end to it? do we truely lack what it takes to do so? are we so lame that it is inconsiderable to even attempt?

our species will do so and do so in order to survive. because it is a survivor and it will have to and it can.
