Global problems require global solutions. We can only truly solve our problems by working together as a people. Our goal is therefore to 'unite the interests' of humanity by transitioning from a National to Global Model, from self-interest to shared interest - from 'Me' to 'WE' thinking.
Competition and Self-Interest
A Nation-centric model with each country focused on its own interests – in political, economic and military competition with the others – leads to aggression and a state of ‘conflicted interests’ between all countries. This results in serious problems.
The focus on political, economic and military ‘competition and self-interest’ creates major problems in the world – war, nuclear threats, greed, corruption, extreme wealth inequality (a major factor behind the recent brexit vote in the UK), human trafficking, environmental issues, species being hunted to extinction, etc.
Also, when each national government meets to discuss important global issues, their psychological focus is often self-centred – ‘What deal can I get out of this for myself or my country’. This is why they lack the ability to resolve global problems.
To effectively resolve these problems, we need to transition to a global model.
Cooperation and Shared Interest
A Global model is based on all countries working together in true cooperation for the benefit of ALL PEOPLE – resulting in an incredibly positive and supportive world. This approach makes intelligent sense as it supports and benefits all people.
A global model is an intelligent model as it is based on the principles of cooperation and shared interest. By working together as a people towards our common good – we all benefit. This practical and common sense approach would phenomenally improve all sectors of society, in all countries.
As there is a new focus on achieving goals based on our collective interest, there would be a more positive approach and successful outcome to international meetings – ‘What can each of us do to help achieve our shared goals so that we all benefit?’
When we work together as a people, there are no limits to what we can achieve.
"I agree - Working together for everyone's benefit makes perfect sense. It's the right thing to do. So how do we implement it?"
Can National Governments implement this change?
In your opinion, do the political leaders of the world’s national governments have the necessary maturity and respect for one another to make a commitment to work together for the common good of all people?
If they did, wouldn’t they already be working together – instead of competing AGAINST each other?
The reality is, most governments have major problems today. These problems include immature egotism, political power games, despotic behaviour, cross-party aggression, ‘politics-for-hire’ lobbying, blatant corruption, and so forth. Due to these serious political problems, it is simply unrealistic to expect these governments to have the maturity to globally work together – however nice that would be. As there is also a clear lack of trust and respect between them, they cannot easily achieve this important transition.
What about the United Nations – can it be ‘upgraded’?
Would the National Governments of the world willingly choose to give authority to an ‘independent’ United Nations which could unite them all under a single banner of global cooperation that would benefit EVERYONE?
This again is one of those ‘It’s a nice idea, but…’. While it makes perfect sense for the United Nations to fulfil a role for humanity that should have been implemented 100 years ago, it is also not likely to happen without serious international and political support.

WHAT IS THE STRATEGY?
As a global community, we will coordinate our efforts and work together on a range of strategies to achieve our shared goals as efficiently as possible. Our unity and combined numbers will become one of our greatest strengths. How can you help?
Some people can contribute time. Some money. Some skills. Some can do all three. Some are talented organisers, facilitators or community engagers. Some will want to focus on addressing the environmental problems while others may want to focus on the political challenges. There are those that can help get the word out by social media and those that can help provide resources to the community. We can all contribute positively in some way. What role you play and how you wish to engage - is your choice.
