Who does the guaranteeing and the allocating? The United Nations, of course. Who pays for the water, food, shelter? The United Nations is a full-fledged subscriber to the socialist philosophy "from each according to ability, to each according to need." With the power of the new International Criminal Court and the longed-for global taxing authority, the United Nations will be able to take wealth from those who have produced it, and re-distribute it to those who have not. Those who have endorsed the Earth Charter have endorsed the principles of global socialism, administered by the United Nations. Citizen members of those towns and organizations that have endorsed this document might want to follow the example of the citizens of Sanibel and demand that the endorsements be rescinded.
