Citizen Of Conscience
of the Republic Of Conscience
With politics dividing and disrupting people’s sense of individual and global community, whether it is racism and ethnic disrespect, or power politiking like the recent Brexit in Europe, the Republic Of Conscience endeavors to serve the emerging peer-to-peer, stateless reality of the developing global Internet Of Citizens. As a sort of “proxy” for the non-existent “U.N. Passport” the
More and more people around the world are beginning to carry on their daily lives in a subnationalist manner – yes, they remain citizens of “x” country, bounded by imaginary lines on a map and enforced by a professional military and police, but the real source of most people’s daily pride are the things closest to them – their families, their regional culture, costume, food, familiar landscape, language and a certain level of care for their local community, regardless if it is prosperous or not. Everyone comes from somewhere and calls it home.
Subconsciously (and in certain circumstances consciously), most people realize that Social, Environmental and Economic cohesion of the community has a much greater impact and is much more important and relevant to their everyday lives and prosperity. As the Chinese saying goes: “the mountains are high, and the emperor is far” – the statistics of military prowess and level of GDP reported by any remote government, no matter how benevolent, is rather abstract and for the most part irrelevant to city dwellers and rural people alike.
The African continent, for instance, has a variety of subnational movements. Although historically manipulated by the typical ethnic elites for their own tribal and economic purposes (at least initially), and certainly subject to divisive religious, linguistic and cultural forces – given enough economic independence and political freedom, subnationalist movements tend to develop positive inter-community and inter-ethnic alliances underpinned by a sense of respect for other’s territorial autonomy and pride in their own indigenous political culture. Who prints the money is irrelevant – where the money is spent IS relevant.
Peace, Justice and Sustainability
In the “Change Ecosystem” made up of the Republic Of Conscience, the World Sustainability Project and Organization, LOHHAS and Sust10 everything in the world is CHANGING VERY QUICKLY and by necessity, shifting our consciousness away from the sluggish, un-responsive, centralized “New World Order”, toward a locally-adaptive, decentralized Sustainable World Order of Pluralism, Partnership and Participation.
Clearly, global governance or even the centralized basic management of a diverse, multicultural world is almost impossible and certainly unsustainable in the long term. Only local, semi-autonomous self-governance and Individual Social Responsibility (ISR) within each individual in a group has the potential to deliver a Lifestyle Of Health Happiness And Sustainability LOHHAS.
Internet Of Conscience
The political map of the world is fluid. European borders looks quite different than they did at the beginning of the 20th century and with the Internet Of Citizens and the emerging Republic Of Conscience the reconfiguration or even elimination of borders is not beyond the realm of possibility.
the most successful movements. This trend, he suggests, may presage a gradual reconfiguration of the political map of Africa in a way that is more reflective of indigenously rooted political culture, a culture that embodies a distinctive respect for local and territorial autonomy.
Think of the nation as a hierarchy, of sub-nations and sub-sub-nations and so forth. And each person’s loyalty is divided in different extents up and down the person’s “chain”. And among these different layers, it is a zero sum game. Thus, strong loyalties at a particular level are resented both by levels higher and lower, and justifiably so. But the higher the level at which the loyalty remains, the better it is for the provision of public goods and development. http://noenthuda.com/blog/2015/08/23/on-sub-nationalism/
