Welcome to Democratic World Government. Democratic globalization is the concept of an institutional system of global democracy that would give world citizens a say in world policies, such as warfare, climate change, human rights, etc.
This would, in the view of its proponents, provide a sphere of world law above the nation-states for a more democratic system of governance, focused on people rather than nations. This Democratic World Government website is devoted to the practice of democracy as a method of governance – the good, the bad, and sometimes the messy aspects of democratic rule – a rule of, by, and for the people of the world.
Please note that since democracy is the governance of people “derived from the will of the people”, it seems proper to ask the people of the world if such a system of democratic global governance is wanted. With the rise of the Internet, this question has now been posed – “Do you support the creation of a directly-elected, representative, transparent, and democratic world parliament that is authorized to legislate on global issues?”
Jim Stark has initiated a process for a Democratic World Parliament through a Global Referendum – back in 2004. You may vote “yes” or “no” in the referendum by clicking on the pop up on the top of this page. Mr. Stark has published a companion book to the online referendum entitled Rescue Plan for Planet Earth.
There is a “popup” on the top of this page – please follow it to vote on the current global referendum asking the question… “Do you support the creation of a directly-elected, representative, transparent, and democratic world parliament that is authorized to legislate on global issues?”
