This year's conference of the Francophone European Association for Baháí Studies (Association francophone européenne des études baháíes, AFEEB) on 24 and 25 October 2009 in Luxembourg discussed the future world order and global governance.
The programme included a presentation of the concept of a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly (UNPA) by the Chairman of the Committee for a Democratic U.N., Andreas Bummel. Outlining the path towards a directly elected world parliament, Mr Bummel stressed the "spiritual dimension" of the efforts. "The establishment of a UN Parliamentary Assembly would represent a changed consciousness. For the first time in human history such a body would establish a direct political connection between every human being and the planet," Mr Bummel said.
Daniel Schaubacher, European Baháí Business Forum, and Jean-Francis Billion, Council Member of the World Federalist Movement, further elaborated on the representation of the peoples in the United Nations and the efforts towards world democracy. Among other things Mr Billion stressed the success of the international coalition of non-governmental organizations which advocated the establishment of the International Criminal Court. Mr Billion noted that the World Federalist Movement spearheaded this effort and that the International Bahá'í Community was part of the coalition. In the discussion it was agreed that the Coalition for the International Criminal Court is a good example to draw upon in the efforts for a UNPA. Further speakers at the conference included, among others, Esther Zana-Nau, Programme Manager at the International Master Programme in Social Policy Analyis IMPALLA who gave an introduction into globalization and global governance.
For Bahá'ís, the term "new world order" has a special and clear-cut meaning. More than one hundred years ago, Bahá'u'lláh, the founder of the Baháí Faith, invoked the phrase to categorize a future series of momentous changes in the political, social and religious life of the world. According to Bahá'u'lláh, these changes include the setting up of a world government, an elected world parliament, a binding world tribunal, and a world police force.
At least they’re being open about it.
Sounds like the "V" episode last night.
Paving the way for the Antichrist.
Is this satire???
Nevertheless if they ever got a break into popular culture... who knows.
I wish it was but it is not supposed to be.
And your take is??? Otherwise I will assume you are friendly to this pacifist bunch of lunatics who would my freedom and yours at risk so everyone can just get along
My take is they want Totalitarian Control and the end to our sovereignty and they are trying to bring their dreams to fruition using things like cap and tax. What is your take?
This is the end of our world as we know it don’t you realize that?
It will make getting the payments from Nigeria easier - won’t have to pay all those upfront fees they keep requesting the different governments require.
Socialized beer! Finally!
I watched that and I said to my husband this is freaky maybe they are trying to introduce us to something strange they are planning. I got chills from that show for some reason.
Socialized CRYIN in the Beer where we all share the misery.
Did you see this?
That's where this old world is headed, and it has nothing to do with self-determination and freedom.
Not just no, but hell now.
The view of this is something that should be one of the first things we want to know about any person who seeks government office from here on out. "Will you support removing the U.N. from the U.S. and the U.S. from the U.N.? Yes or no!
Yes, and I mean ‘hell now!!!!’. LOL
SHB “Hell no!”
“discussed the future world order and global governance”
According to Bahá'u'lláh, these changes include the setting up of a world government, an elected world parliament, a binding world tribunal, and a world police force.
Is this is why obama was fast tracked to presidency? Addresses the world. Use of Acorn, media, mystery back ground and tons of money. Seems like a very powerful group, with passage of Lisbon Treaty. We need to really keep an eye on Gun control through the courts and any internationl treaties, G20 agreements.
