Thanksgiving

My dear fellow World Citizens!

 

Welcome to my story.

 

Thanks to Martin Luther King, we had a dream.

Thanks to Walt Disney, we made our dream come true.

Thanks to John Lennon, we imagined …

… all the people sharing all the world.

… with no need for greed or hunger, a brotherhood of man.

 

Thanks to Pope Francis we recognized, that human rights are violated

     by unfair economic structures that create huge inequalities

Thanks to former Danish foreign minister Per Stig Moeller

     we understand, that the fight against terrorism

     should be combined with the fight against hunger
Thanks to the states- and chairmanship of Mogens Lykketoft

     we dared to put World Citizenship on the UN-agenda

Thanks to Barack Obama, we got the guts to say: Yes we can!

Thanks to Abraham Maslow we identified
      the steps of individual realisation

Thanks to George Marshall we realised
      the perspective of worldwide responsibility

Thanks to Joost Smiers we understand,
      that divine inspiration must be free of charge

Thanks to Steven Shafarman we realise that fantasy feeds fulfilment.

Thanks to Jiddu Krishnamurti we experienced choiceless awareness

Thanks to Rudolf Steiner we explore the philosophy of freedom

Thanks to Martinus we acknowledge cosmology and spirituality

Thanks to Mahatma Ghandi we value one man’s power, pure and poor

Thanks to Nelson Mandela we cherish faith, hope and love

Thanks to H.H. Dalai Lama we identified a philosophy of kindness
Thanks to Philippe van Parijs we was amazed by the common good
     in freedom for the Crazie Jobbie as for the Lazie Hobbie

Thanks to Socrates, Christ and Kierkegaard we saw the point …

… of knowing, loving and being our eternal and present I

 

We imagined the World Bank establishing a world citizen account belonging to every single world citizen.

And we imagined the United Nations every month contributing a Granted Basic Income to the account of each and every world citizen, sponsored by global consciousness, care and capacity.

   To prevent poverty, hunger, terrorism and war.

   To encourage human welfare, creativity, integrity and prosperity.

 


Like a water pump that pumps oxygen from the bottom of a lake to allow it to breathe and sustain life, the UN-GBI succeeded in energizing almost all local communities into human integrity and prosperity.

Together they made well doing regions, which flourished into bright and brilliant nations.

      Which became the very foundation of what we nowadays know as Global Diversity:

The overwhelming wealth of physical, cultural and spiritual tribe’s of love and understanding.


This is our story … please feel free to join it!

 

Best wishes
