FAQs regarding WPE 2008

- What can I do at the moment to make WPE 2008 a success?

The most effective thing you can do is tell others about the event and ask them to sign up on : in our chat meeting we decided that on October 1st, we will probaly close admissions and focus more on other aspects. In addition, if you want to help us to make WPE 2008 a success it would be great if we could all work on the main page, make proposals there and comment on other people's proposals to make this site interesting for newcomers, because we will probably have many people who want to come but cannot make it for financial reasons, so it would be good to have a strong discuss online that we can connect to the real life meeting in February.

New Questions

A World Parliament indicates a World Government. What and where is the World Government Constitution for this World Parliament?


(Taken from

We can outlaw war! All human conflicts can be worked out through law. We can live under law globally as easily as we do within our nations, provinces and cities.

Lower taxes globally! "Collective security" will cost you far less than financing your nation's defense against all other countries. Imagine if your city or town had to hire, train and equip a military force in case a nearby city or town invaded! We have "collective security" within our nations; now we need it among all nations.

Solutions for global problems! With a globally enforced peace, we can actually defeat AIDS and poverty, get serious about everyone's human rights, deal with climate change, encourage freedom and democracy everywhere, and build a truly sustainable future for our planet.
