Provisional World Parliament (PWP):
The PWP is a world legislative body operating under the Authority of Article 19 of the Earth Constitution that debates and passes World Legislative Acts building a new peaceful, just, and equitable world order within the shell of the old rotten world order. The Parliament is organized by WCPA but is an independent governmental body whose decisions create genuine world law under which, for example, the world criminals who today act as heads of warring nation-states may be prosecuted.

iNCLUDES CRITICAL SOCIAL analysis IN THE MARXIST TRADITION,
COMPASSION OR AGAPE FROM THE Buddhist OR CHRISTIAN TRADITIONS,
AND ACTIVE NONVIOLENCE IN THE TRADITION OF DIRECT SOCIAL ACTION:
UNDERSTANDING THAT CAPITALISM, THE SOVEREIGN NATION-STATE, AND THEIR INEVITABLE MILITARISM MUST BE ABOLISHED FROM THE EARTH FOREVER !!
G. T. Martin
The Earth Federation is designed for synergistic system sustainability as explained in the Anatomy of a Sustainable World. The Integrative Complex within the Earth Federation government coordinates humanity's economic, industrial, waste, and consumption activities for the synergistic actualization of a sustainability system, which is also a peace system, a prosperity system, and a justice system. A united humanity is infinitely more effective than a humanity divided into competing sovereign states. Our common human survival is simultaneously our human liberation.
I now go on to speculate that I think that what we all really mean by wealth is as follows: “Wealth is our organized capability to cope effectively with the environment in sustaining our healthy regeneration and decreasing both the physical and metaphysical restrictions on the forward days of our lives”…. It is obvious that the real wealth of life aboard our planet is a forwardly-operative, metabolic, and intellectual regenerating system…. Our children and their children are our future days. If we do not comprehend and realize our potential ability to support all life forever we are cosmically bankrupt. (77-79)
