  • The journey of World Constitutionalism has already begun in different spheres of life, such as Human Rights, Environmental Laws, various World Order movements etc.

Fundamental Requirements

There is a need

  •   For Concepts on World Constitutionalism.
  •  For a Popular Movement towards World Constitutionalism.
  •  For Academic Recognition to World Constitutionalism.

 

  • Concepts for World Constitutionalism
    • There is a need for concepts that will facilitate the process of enactment of World Constitution in the near future.
    • There is a need for rethinking on various concepts such as war, peace, inner and outer harmony, sovereignty, rule of law etc. so that we reformulate them to suit the requirements of New World Order.
    • Our language is loaded with the terminology of war. We fight, struggle, battle, etc through life. Through various periods of history we have admired our conquerors, their mighty deeds, the great battles, the great events that manipulated the superiority of one civilization over another. We have projected them in literature, poems, songs and national anthems. Do we need a rethinking today, so as to preserve their wealth but at the same time extract out the wrong projections that they create on young and impressive minds?
    • We may need to pick on some old concepts like Human Brotherhood, concern for others, that are favourable for a new world order and are buried under the dust of history.
    • We may have to build up new suitable concepts for the future society. Brand creation is a fad of the modern times, and we may have to use it for World Constitutionalism.
    • We need to reorient our approach to peace, inner and outer harmony, keeping in view the modern theories of mind control.
