Most people aren’t aware of an alternative that was proposed to the United Nations which was never implemented, one that did not bias power into the hands of the few (Security Council) but was actually equitable across the globe. 

Mitchell’s guest, Glen T. Martin, Ph.D., has been one of the major advocates of the World Constitution & Parliament Association (WCPA) which has also proposed the Constitution for the Federation of the Earth in which the Earth, as a living being, has a voice.

Glen T. Martin, Ph.D., is Professor of Philosophy at Radford University in Virginia, USA. He is the founder and Chair Emeritus of the Program in Peace Studies at Radford University. He is President of International Philosophers for Peace (IPPNO) and President of the World Constitution and Parliament Association (WCPA), a worldwide organization that sponsors the Constitution for the Federation of Earth.  He has traveled and lectured worldwide on behalf of the Earth Constitution and the philosophical foundations of emerging world law, as well as on behalf of WCPA projects such as sessions of the Provisional World Parliament and the development of a World Court system. He has helped organize and participated in every session of the Provisional World Parliament in different cities around the world from the 4th session in 1996 to the 14th session in 2015.

Since his college years in the 1960s and 70s, Martin has been an outspoken critic of war, imperialism, and global injustice. Since 1995, he has actively worked with WCPA in the attempt to transform our unjust and unworkable world system from a system of violence, war, and private accumulation of profit for the rich to a system organized around peace, justice, and sustainability. In this effort, he has traveled to many countries, especially in Latin America, Africa, and South Asia, meeting with ordinary people, often as chapters of WCPA, to reveal the links between local problems like poverty, gender inequality, and political corruption and a broken world system that is fundamentally responsible for these problems. He has encouraged people worldwide to connect grassroots activism for peace and justice with ratification of a holistic global framework for supporting peace and justice in the form of the Earth Constitution.

Martin has received several international peace awards, including the GUSI Peace Prize International in Manila, Philippines, 2013. He has published hundreds of articles in popular as well as academic venues. He is author or editor of eleven books, including his well-known book, Millennium Dawn: the Philosophy of Planetary Crisis and Human Liberation (2005) and his latest book, Global Democracy and Human Self-Transcendence: The Power of the Future for Planetary Transformation (2018).  WCPA websites include www.earth-constitution.org and www.worldparliament-gov.org/  Martin’s blog can be found at www.oneworldrenaissance.com.

He had the honor to live with indigenous peoples in different parts of the world, defending Mother-Earth & Native Culture/Human Rights.
Oannes hosted and produced an award-winning international radio program; “Honoring Mother-Earth/Indigenous Voices” broadcast on www.radio4all.net and on Radio for Peace International www.rfpi.org, short-wave radio across the planet.
For Oannes a major priority was networking with students & youth organizations in order to encourage and support young people’s activism.
Mitchell and Oannes were both on the Advisory Board of Radio For Peace International, Costa Rica, where each had shows and both interested in promoting environmental and social justice.
This interview was conducted on location at the RFPI studio in Costa Rica, at University for Peace, owned & operated by the United Nations.

A Threat to National & International Security
A Threat to Democracy, A Threat to a Dignified, Cooperative & Compassionate, Diverse Society
It is a sad day when one feels that one’s elected officials are truly out so much for themselves and in such egregious betrayal of their oaths of office to serve the people of our nation, the American People, so much out of integrity, that they will do just about anything to preserve their own sense of power, influence and financial position.
They will ‘sell’ the American way of life, the delicacy of Democratic process and the dignity of freedom for their own benefit at the expense of hundreds of millions of people in the U.S. and billions of people world-wide, since their decisions influence most all sentient beings on the planet.
But in fact, this is what I believe we are witnessing in a blatant way that actually has very serious repercussions and threatens the semblance of peace and dignity the world has despite so many conflicts and difficulties.  True enough, the U.S. has acted egregiously toward others and its own for what really amounts to centuries to different degrees.  I’m certainly not going to unpack this now as it would actually take a 2,000-page tome.  Suffice it to say that the way the U.S. legal system and culture has so discriminated against people of color, the Native Peoples of Turtle Island, the Chinese, the Latins, the Japanese, women and against endangered species, it can make one truly ill.  There has been a profound lack of moral compass and leadership in this government and the Oval Office perhaps from the beginning.  Presidents have always been heavily influenced by money, corporations, private interests, banks, wealthy families and the like from inception, to varying degrees.  FDR was one of the few exceptions and even that just to a certain extent.
But what we have today is an utter abrogation of responsibility to Democratic process and an absence of accountability.  It is as though the rule of law has been significantly suspended, as lying to Congress under oath and other egregious acts that are felonies are going unprosecuted and this simply opens the door to more of same.
In just relatively recent history,  the U.S. Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, just after 9-11, lied under oath to Congress and the American People regarding surveillance of and the spying on Americans.  Whistle blowers instead,  William Binney and others, were prosecuted for telling the truth about what the intelligence agencies were doing:  breaking the law.
Jeff Sessions, when being interviewed in the Confirmation Hearings to be the chief law enforcement officer of the land, lied under oath to Congress, and to the American People.  Prosecuted?  No.
Donald Trump, who lies to the American People virtually every single day, not infrequently by so doing, jeopardizes national security and the safety of Americans, has not been prosecuted because of a flimsy, virtually whimsical ruling of the Office of Legal Counsel stating that a sitting President cannot be prosecuted.  Why?  Then let him stand and then prosecute!  He is either subject to law or not.  Being President should not be an exemption no matter what.   When one learns about how that ruling—not a law—it has only the power we agree to give it–one would want it rescinded forthwith.  It is undemocratic, it reinforces a wrong idea of an Imperial President and it allows a President to simply break the law at will which the current President has done, not once, not twice but as a practice.  And the only remedy is impeachment?  I don’t think so.  This is not ethical or legitimate.  And if we have a situation as we do today that the Senate has a majority of the same party as the President and they choose to protect him no matter how egregious his non-law-abiding practices are?  And you have an AG who does the President’s bidding instead of upholds the rule of law as we now have? You effectively no longer have a Democracy.  And this is where we are today.
While there have been so many egregious, unethical, self-interested acts of both parties over time, McConnell’s refusal to hold confirmation hearings for Merrick Garland stands out is a most blatant defiance of decency, civility and protocol.  That he refuses to acknowledge the madness of Trump and how unqualified he is to be President just so he can personally and financially benefit in broad daylight along with his wife and also go unprosecuted is nauseating.
The wide-ranging corruption of our elected officials and the clear bias against the People despite all the rhetoric is also nauseating and we’re so tired of it.  When it comes to the infrastructure of this country on all levels—energy, medicine, chemical, agriculture, security, military and media–it is all destructive, self-serving and wholly out of alignment with Nature, her principles of conservation and sustainability.
From separating children from parents at the Southern border, to flirting with Kim Jong Un and keeping sanctions in place (an economic war) for North Korea and Iran, what we really see is that there is little hope for a world at peace.  One doesn’t achieve peace by punishing a perceived adversary.  From inciting racist and white supremacist violence in his speeches from the beginning, this man has shown that he in no way qualifies for President but for being a Mafia figure, which is really what his training has been.  He is a place-holder in the Oval Office.  He barely won even in the electoral college, just by the slimmest majority.  See this excerpt from a Washington Post article:
“The most important states, though, were Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Trump won those states by 0.2, 0.7 and 0.8 percentage points, respectively — and by 10,704, 46,765 and 22,177 votes. Those three wins gave him 46 electoral votes; if Clinton had done one point better in each state, she’d have won the electoral vote, too.” (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/12/01/donald-trump-will-be-president-thanks-to-80000-people-in-three-states/)
So while I was not at all for Hilary Clinton, I do want to see a fair election under all circumstances.  From my point of view, she and Deborah Wasserman-Schultz should be serving time for having illegally and certainly unethically stolen the nomination from Bernie Sanders, and they damn well know that they did this.  And Sanders would have trounced and trumped Trump.  And we wouldn’t be dealing with this nightmare.  Another one perhaps!  But one that would have put the subject of reversing Global Warming on the table, reduced wars, reduced school loan amounts and would have begun a much more equitable health-care system.
But this fellow in the Oval Office is ill-equipped for virtually anything except being a used car salesman and a bully.  For that, he is eminently qualified.  He hurts, insults, divides, injures others as his M.O. which I think is why Republicans got behind him:  they’re scared!  They don’t want to be chastised by him in public.  No one can blame them because he is like a wild animal stalking prey and will stop at nothing as we have seen, even when it comes to hurricane threats in Alabama.  But in reality, we must blame them because their radio silence and standing by while he rapes and pillages the country of its long-standing, decent values and qualities (even though they are in too short supply) is nothing short of despicable.  The group responsible for this madness of what is going on day by day is the Republican Party.  Trump is the symptom of a Party gone mad.
And one sees that our systems, political, economic and social are completely inadequate to meet the demands of the day.  Trump has pushed almost every boundary and protocol there is and has poked holes in the fabric of our society, on all these levels.  We assume decency among people, but we see now that what isn’t legislated, he will drive a bulldozer through and has.  
While the systems have proven to be wholly insufficient, perhaps the most damage being done is the denial of the reality of Global Warming, which is tantamount to mass murder.  Our storms, hurricanes and all are directly a result of heating oceans, icecaps, and the Greenhouse gases heating up and skewing our atmosphere and oceans.  This man is aiding and abetting mass murder on the global/climatic level as well as his words which incite violence, a total and complete tragedy. 
This man needs to be removed from Office as quickly as possible, whether it is through the 25th Amendment, rescission of the OLC’s ridiculous platitude of a President not being indictable or simply his party demanding that he step down as he has made a complete mockery of them and what are sound Republican values which I acknowledge though I am far from Republican.  All systems and institutions need serious transformation and an economy based on renewable energy and moderate profit, win-win, not “making a killing”.  All of this is especially sad because we have so many millions of people in this country and world who are fair-minded, healthy, compassionate and intelligent souls who want to see the world “work for all’, not just the few.
