Every being that lives on Earth is an Earth Citizen and deserves the right to life and happiness.
Earth Citizenship can be thought of as a group of individuals that freely choose to help life and happiness to thrive. Earth Citizens are not bound by location, race, nor nation, but belong to a single community based on a shared morality to help life and happiness to thrive. Earth Citizens may form various groups based on interests and preferences for helping life and happiness to thrive. These individuals or groups can share a set of agreements, not rules, to help them collaborate in a peaceful and sustainable way. As a global society, Earth Citizens empower the wisest ideas, people, and groups for helping life and happiness to thrive. The wisdom of an idea, person, or group is determined by the positive or negative impact they have on the environment and social happiness. This rank, zRank, is determined by a combination of expert analysis and a public vote. The ideas, people and groups with the highest rank get the most support.
Note: Anyone can be an Earth Citizen no matter his or her social status, economics, gender, ethnicity, culture, nationality, spiritual belief or life conditions.
“Many people constantly talk about their rights, but citizenship also comes with duties.” - Ingrid Holm-Garibay
We take ownership of our own happiness and accept responsibilities to help life and happiness thrive. We do not see this so much as work, but as service.
We are not bound by rules, but by agreements. We choose to seek the truth and live by moral codes that help life and happiness to thrive.
“Of all that is good, sublimity is supreme. Succeeding is the coming together of all that is beautiful. Furtherance is the agreement of all that is just. Perseverance is the foundation of all actions.” - Lao Tzu (571 BC)
Most importantly is that each individual and group sit down together and utilize the agreements set forth here to decide how they can come to agreement on their own purposes, visions, ethics and actions to ensure they are helping life and happiness to thrive.
