Principles of the Free World Charter
April 9, 2017 by Steve Beckow
In this year, 2017, our personal freedoms, environment and biodiversity have become critically endangered by our mismanagement of global resources.
This charter document proposes ten fundamental principles on which to grow an entirely new world society based on fairness, common sense and survival. Once observed, these principles will realise human equality, minimise suffering and injustice, create a cooperative society that promotes progress and technology, and guarantees a healthy, diverse and sustainable world for all species.
If you agree with this vision, please register your support by becoming a signatory and sharing this website and its ideals with your friends. It is only with popular support that we can effect the kind of changes now necessary to sustain life on Earth into the far future.
