A New International Standard of Human Rights Needs to be Fundamentally Redefined

In order for the standard of human rights now in the process of formulation by the community of nations to be promoted and established as prevailing international norms, a fundamental redefinition of human relationships is called for. Present-day conceptions of what is natural and appropriate in relationships—among human beings themselves, between human beings and Mother Earth, between the individual and society, and between the members of society and its institutions—reflect levels of understanding arrived at by the human family during earlier and less mature stages in its development. If humanity is indeed coming of age, if all the inhabitants of Mother Earh constitute a single people, if justice is to be the ruling principle of social organization—then existing conceptions that were born out of ignorance of these emerging realities have to be recast.

Movement in this direction has barely begun. It will lead, as it unfolds, to a new understanding of the nature of the family and of the rights and responsibilities of each of its members. It will entirely transform the role of women at every level of society. Its effect in reordering people’s relation to the work they do and their understanding of the place of economic activity in their lives will be sweeping. It will bring about far-reaching changes in the governance of human affairs and in the institutions created to carry it out. Through its influence, the work of society’s rapidly proliferating nongovernmental organizations will be increasingly rationalized. It will ensure the creation of binding legislation that will protect both the environment and the development needs of all peoples. Ultimately, the restructuring or transformation of the United Nations system that this movement is already bringing about will no doubt lead to the establishment of a world federation of nations with its own legislative, judicial, and executive bodies.

We have been getting alot of help from the planets to make this change, as of the last full moon, Sept. 23rd! This full moon was in Aries, opening energetic gateways and revealing new options! This was a compelling formation in our sky!! There was a cardinal grand cross with eight oppositions and fifteen squares! Each opposition requires social awareness, and each square demands that we radically shift our perspective and direction! For more details visit!!!

Having just returned from the wind River Reservation in wyoming, I saw the good progress and the sadness that racial profiling still happens every day. It was a beautiful trip of rich memories, and prayers that we can really stand in circle one day, we are all related, being more than our motto, but a way of life! Mitakuye Oyasin

With an eye towards history, any such endeavor will require the greatest care in its crafting, enactment and how it is carried out.

All considerations must be given their due.

Ultimately the determination of is human rights is critical.

But what of all other nations, not just the two legged ones? What rights will they have? Will their rights be at the expense of those of us who speak the languages of human beings?

Thank your for sharing these thoughts and efforts towards making a better world.
