THE NEW WORLD ORDER
A GOOD THING?
THE DREAM AND THE REALITY
by Dee Finney
|9-25-2001 - DREAM - I was outside with a large group of people.
There was going to be a picnic. I thought that sounded like a lot of fun
and volunteered to be one of the corner posts for the large red tent, which
would be held up by human beings, not mechanical means.
People I knew were coming by and I invited them to come to the picnic, but they would say, "I'd love to join you, but I have something planned with my own family and I have to go get my kids and do my own thing."
I couldn't blame them for wanting to be with their own family, and got tired of being turned down by everyone who came by, so eventually I took the red tent and wrapped it around myself like a blanket and went to see what my own family was doing and perhaps gather them together for the picnic.
So, I arrived at my mother's house. She was angry at me for something I had done and didn't want to speak to me. My grandmother was sitting on a bench over in a corner by herself. My mother and grandmother weren't speaking to each other either.
A couple of my kids came by so I invited them to the picnic. They told me they wanted to do their own thing with their friends, so they were to busy too do something with their Mom.
So I left then and began to walk up the street by myself.
I came to an intersection where a highschool band was playing. It was a huge band, dressed all in blue with a white stripe down the pant leg. They sounded great.
The cheerleading squad was practicing too, but separately. The girls were beautiful with blue tops, short silver skirts and high white boots. They looked really good together.
Then I saw a group of younger school children on the other side of the street with their teachers under a different tent. This tent had 4 silver tubes for corner posts. I saw a Father bring his son to class. He wanted to help teach his son, but the woman teacher said, "Oh No! You can't do that. Only teachers can teach the children. The parents can only bring their children to the school and drop them off and leave again. You can't be part of the child's school life."
I felt very dismayed. I couldn't stay and be with the children either though I had raised 6 of my own children back in the old days when parents knew what was good for their own children.
So I had to leave and went up the street by myself.
Then I met a man named David, an old friend. He had been gone for some time. while he was gone, and I didn't know if he would ever be back, so when I moved, I moved his clothes too, hangars and all and hung them in my own closet, just in case he ever came back.
David (means 'dearly loved' ) was happy that I had thought of him and hadn't forgotten about him so we started to walk up the street together. David was the ultimate gentleman and walked on the street side of me, like the old fashioned gentlemen used to do in the old days.
The street was so steep, it was like climbing a mountain. It was really difficult and we were having a hard time. It seemed to get steeper and steeper, the closer to the top we got.
Then a large green car came along and David recognized the driver as someone he knew. This car was huge with a powerful engine and could make it up the hill much easier than we could on foot, so David waved at the car and it pulled over to pick him up. David asked if I could ride along, and the people in the car said, "Sure thing!", but it wasn't easy to get in the vehicle.
The vehicle was only a 2 door and one had to get in up near the hood over the engine which opened like a flap. Then we had to squeeze past the edge of the front seat which didn't fold forward and crawl into the back seat.
A tall skinny guy was sitting on that right-hand seat and the guy said, "Only long legged people can fit through there. I assured him I had long legs and managed to squeeze past the front seat and got into the back of the vehicle.
Once inside the vehicle, I saw that it had green carpeting and the inside the vehicle was huge. It would hold dozens and dozens of people easily. It was just hard to get in. As it was, David and I were the only passengers.
So, I settled down for the ride the rest of the way up the steep hill.
Once inside the vehicle, a screen came up behind the driver's seat. The screen showed all the small groups of people of the earth. There were lots of small groups and they were aligned in five columns and that seemed to be a very precarious way of living. The people were arranged in loosely arranged small groups in the stacks and not at all connected.
Then I noticed some new people came in near the bottom of the groups and they began to form a bridge between the 1st stack and the 2nd stack of people which made both stacks more stable.
I could see immediately, that the more bridges people built between each group the more stable the whole of humanity would be. Perhaps a New World Order of mutual support wasn't such a bad thing afterall.

Much has been written about British diamond magnate Cecil Rhodes, founder of the Rhodes Scholarship. Briefly, he was dedicated to establishing a socialist one-world government controlled by a small group of elite -- a world view he received from John Ruskin, his socialist professor at Oxford. After making his fortune in diamonds, Rhodes established a secret society in the form of a scholarship to promote this ideal should it fail to materialize before his death. Rhodes biographer Sarah Millin wrote: "The government of the world was Rhodes' simple desire."
In a letter to close friend and publisher W. T. Stead (fall of 1890) Rhodes described his plan: "The key of my idea discussed with you is a Society, copied from the Jesuits as to organization ... an idea which ultimately (leads) to the cessation of all wars and one language throughout the world.... The only thing feasible to carry this idea out is a secret one [society] gradually absorbing the wealth of the world to be devoted to such an object.... Fancy the charm to young America ... to share in a scheme to take the government of the whole world!" Rhodes also told Stead that scholars should possess the following traits: "smugness, brutality, unctuous rectitude, and tact."
To develop a genuine world order there needs to be:
A World Government: to enact the laws required to satisfy the needs of all peoples. It will have at its disposal the combined forces of the world in order to maintain peace.
A World Parliament: The members of this should be elected by the people in each country, and their election should be confirmed by their respective governments.
A World Code Of Law: based on justice for individuals and for nations.
A World Tribunal: Its decision will be binding on all parties.
World Police Force: An international police force must be created, dedicated to upholding justice with complete impartiality.
Universal Equality: Everyone must have the right to education and to be equal before the law. There must be a universal bill of human rights.
A World Language: A world language will be either chosen or invented. This will be taught in all the schools of each country, in addition to the mother tongue of the region.

A world that is united and living in peace and harmony with all of nature.
Everyone follows in life, what excites them the most - the things that bring them joy, with integrity, conviction and trust.
Everyone recognises their personal value and how they always fit in perfectly with the whole.
Everyone supports the whole and the whole supports them.
Everyone has a state of personal health that could only have dreamed about a few decades ago. This resulted from the discovery of how the body heals itself, optimal nutrition and new technology.
The world's energy needs are now supplied from a source that was only recognised to exist around the turn of the century. This energy is known by several different names - Zero Point Energy (ZPE), Enhanced Energy, Space Energy, New Energy; Free Energy, Super Energy and many others. ZPE is inexpensive, inexhaustible, non-polluting, portable and is derived from natural sources.
Noiseless vehicles travel safely at super-high speeds over land and sea. They are guided by on-board NAV (satellite) navigational systems and utilise ZPE as their fuel. This makes it easy for people to travel anywhere in the world and also commute to and from remote areas to their place of occupation.
The economic system is a new process that allows people to live their lives the way they want to whilst being of service to others.
The old taxation system has now been replaced by a very simple and inexpensive method. Governments simply allocate themselves a 'slice' of the national pie instead of picking up all the 'crumbs' the way they used to. The amount allocated is predetermined from a formula that is varied, as and when required.
Food and wealth are now evenly distributed throughout the planet. There are no longer any scarcities - there is enough for everyone's needs. This has resulted from the non-limiting economic system, the automated manufacturing systems, the abundance of clean energy, efficient transportation and above all societies new attitude of peace, goodwill and inter-cooperation.
Forests of the world have largely been re-planted and many of the original fauna and flora species are now recovering.
Farmland soils have been replenished with 'concentrated humus' processed from brown coal, organic compost from recycled waste and natural mineral-rock additives. Chemical fertilisers are no longer used and have been replaced with occasional applications of rock dust mixed with soil microbes that slowly release plant nutrients. A system of multiple cropping is now common practice allowing plants to flourish in a symbiotic way that minimises pest and disease attack.
With the advent of ZPE, huge irrigation projects became possible that permitted food to be grown in formerly non-productive areas.
Petroleum oil and black coal are now used exclusively for manufacturing raw materials that are used to produce building and other materials - all of which are recycled - for example, a 'superwood' that was developed in the 1990's. Additionally, there are new agricultural non-food crops that are being phased-in that provide chemicals for industry that were previously obtained from oil and coal.
All waste products are either recycled or used for other productive purposes that are themselves recyclable. Land and water have now been cleansed - thanks to microbiological and electromagnetic technologies that were pioneered in the 1990's. Nuclear power is no longer used and all radioactive wastes have been neutralised or otherwise made safe using an encapsulating technology developed late in the last century.
Governmental bodies are exclusively serving bodies. Society has much more say in what governments do through the means of 'electronic voting' - as a type of referendum - as and when needed.
Population growth has now slowed and decentralised. Many people have moved from the city environments into areas that were formerly considered uninhabitable or too far away from their livelihood.
Education is focused on developing the students natural abilities. Personal growth and well-being are priorities and support is given when and where needed to accomplish this.
Artists are able to perform with the confidence that they are always supported in their chosen endeavour. Plentiful leisure time is available making it possible for everyone to appreciate their favourite form of art and other forms of recreation.

|"NEW WORLD ORDER"
PRESIDENT BUSH'S SPEECH TO CONGRESS
March 6, 1991 (extracts). This speech has often been cited as the administrations principal policy statement on the postwar order in the Middle East.
... Tonight I come to this House to speak about the world the world after war.
The recent challenge could not have been clearer. Saddam Hussein was the villain, Kuwait the victim. To the aid of this small country came nations from North America and Europe, from Asia and South America, from Africa and the Arab world, all united against aggression.
Our uncommon coalition must now work in common purpose to forge a future that should never again be held hostage to the darker side of human nature.
Tonight in Iraq, Saddam walks amidst ruin. His war machine is crushed. His ability to threaten mass destruction is itself destroyed. His people have been lied to, denied the truth. And when his defeated legions come home, all Iraqis will see and feel the havoc he has wrought. And this I promise you: for all that Saddam has done to his own people, to the Kuwaitis, and to the entire world, Saddam and those around him are accountable.
All of us grieve for the victims of war, for the people of Kuwait and the suffering that scars the soul of that proud nation. We grieve for all our fallen soldiers and their families, for all the innocents caught up in this conflict. And, yes, we grieve for the people of Iraq, a people who have never been our enemy. My hope is that one day we will once again welcome them as friends into the community of nations.
Our commitment to peace in the Middle East does not end with the liberation of Kuwait. So tonight let me outline four key challenges to be met.
First, we must work together to create shared security arrangements in the region. Our friends and allies in the Middle East recognise that they will bear the bulk of the responsibility for regional security. But we want them to know that just as we stood with them to repel aggression, so now America stands ready to work with them to secure the peace.
This does not mean stationing US ground forces on the Arabian Peninsula, but it does mean American participation in joint exercises involving both air and ground forces. It means maintaining a capable US naval presence in the region, just as we have for over 40 years. Let it be clear: our vital national interests depend on a stable and secure Gulf.
Second, we must act to control the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and the missiles used to deliver them. It would be tragic if the nations of the Middle East and Persian Gulf were now, in the wake of war, to embark on a new arms race. Iraq requires special vigilance. Until Iraq convinces the world of its peaceful intentions that its leaders will not use new revenues to re-arm and rebuild its menacing war machine Iraq must not have access to the instruments of war.
And third, we must work to create new opportunities for peace and stability in the Middle East. On the night I announced Operation Desert Storm, I expressed my hope that out of the horrors of war might come new momentum for peace. We have learned in the modern age geography cannot guarantee security and security does not come from military power alone.
All of us know the depth of bitterness that has made the dispute between Israel and its neighbours so painful and intractable. Yet, in the conflict just concluded, Israel and many of the Arab states have for the first time found themselves confronting the same aggressor. By now, it should be plain to all parties that peacemaking in the Middle East requires compromise. At the same time, peace brings real benefits to everyone. We must do all that we can to close the gap between Israel and the Arab states and between Israelis and Palestinians. The tactics of terror lead nowhere. There can be no substitute for diplomacy.
A comprehensive peace must be grounded in United Nations Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338 and the principle of territory for peace. This principle must be elaborated to provide for Israels security and recognition, and at the same time for legitimate Palestinian political rights. Anything else would fail the twin tests of fairness and security. The time has come to put an end to Arab-Israeli conflict.
The war with Iraq is over. The quest for solutions to the problem in Lebanon, in the Arab-Israeli dispute, and in the Gulf must go forward with new vigour and determination. And I guarantee you: no one will work harder for a stable peace in the region than we will.
Fourth, we must foster economic development for the sake of peace and progress. The Persian Gulf and Middle East form a region rich in natural resources with a wealth of untapped human potential. Resources once squandered on military might must be redirected to more peaceful ends. We are already addressing the immediate economic consequences of Iraqs aggression. Now the challenge is to reach higher to foster economic freedom and prosperity for all people of the region.
By meeting these four challenges, we can build a framework for peace. Ive asked Secretary of State Baker to go to the Middle East to begin the process. He will go to listen, to probe, to offer suggestions, and to advance the search for peace and stability. I have also asked him to raise the plight of the hostages held in Lebanon. We have not forgotten them, and we will not forget them.
To all the challenges that confront this region of the world, there is no single solution, no solely American answer. But we can make a difference. America will work tirelessly as a catalyst for positive change.
But we cannot lead a new world abroad if, at home, its politics as usual on American defense and diplomacy. Its time to turn away from the temptation to protect unneeded weapons systems and obsolete bases. Its time to put an end to micro-management of foreign and security assistance programs, micro-management that humiliates our friends and allies and hamstrings our diplomacy. Its time to rise above the parochial and the pork barrel, to do what is necessary, whats right and what will enable this nation to play the leadership role required of us.
The consequences of the conflict in the Gulf reach far beyond the confines of the Middle East. Twice before in this century, an entire world was convulsed by war. Twice this century, out of the horrors of war hope emerged for enduring peace. Twice before, those hopes proved to be a distant dream, beyond the grasp of man.
Until now, the world weve known has been a world divided a world of barbed wire and concrete block, conflict and cold war.
Now, we can see a new world coming into view. A world in which there is the very real prospect of a new world order. In the words of Winston Churchill, a "world order" in which "the principles of justice and fair play ... protect the weak against the strong ..." A world where the United Nations, freed from cold war stalemate, is poised to fulfil the historic vision of its founders. A world in which freedom and respect for human rights find a home among all nations.
The Gulf war put this new world to its first test, and, my fellow Americans, we passed that test.
For the sake of our principles, for the sake of the Kuwaiti people, we stood our ground. Because the world would not look the other way, Ambassador [Saud Nasir] al-Sabah, to-night, Kuwait is free.
Tonight as our troops begin to come home, let us recognise that the hard work of freedom still calls us forward. Weve learned the hard lessons of history. The victory over Iraq was not waged as "a war to end all wars." Even the new world order cannot guarantee an era of perpetual peace. But enduring peace must be our mission ...

stage which human society is now approaching. Unity of family, of tribe,
of city-state, and nation have been successively attempted and fully established.
World unity is the goal towards which a harassed humanity is striving.
Nation-building has come to an end. The anarchy inherent in state sovereignty
is moving towards a climax. A world, growing to maturity, must abandon this
fetish, recognize the oneness and wholeness of human relationships, and establish
once for all the machinery that can best incarnate this fundamental principle
of its life."

"The United Nations, he told an audience at Harvard University, 'has not been able--nor can it be able--to shape a new world order which events so compellingly demand.' ... The new world order that will answer economic, military, and political problems, he said, 'urgently requires, I believe, that the United States take the leadership among all free peoples to make the underlying concepts and aspirations of national sovereignty truly meaningful through the federal approach.'" -- Gov.

|Remarks by His Holiness the Dalai Lama
to the Members of the United States Congress
Mr. Speaker, Senator Mitchell, Representative Gephardt, Senator Dole, Representative Michel, Senators, Members of the Congress, other distinguished guests and brothers and sisters, I am extremely happy and honored to be with you today.
Now, if you would give me permission, I would like to use my broken English. I think there is a solemn atmosphere. Now since there isn't much time, I would like to first express my deep feelings. I am a bit moved and touched today; so therefore, instead of reading my prepared statement, I would like to say something else.
As human brothers and sisters, I have a feeling that deep down we are all the same human beings. Therefore, it is quite natural that when some human brothers and sisters suffer, then other brothers and sisters spontaneously develop some kind of sincere feeling or concern. At this moment, I find this very much alive. I consider this a hope for the future.
Another basic thing very useful for humanity is a good heart. Without that, I think our future is doomed and there may not be a very happy state. If this human feeling, this human affection, is kept alive, it will be carried in all human activities and then there will be real hope. I believe that during this century, we have learned many negative things. As a result, humanity has become more mature. So, I have every reason to believe that the next century will be a nicer and friendlier one. I feel a more harmonious world may be achieved.
Now I would like to say something about my own case. Here, I enjoy the freedom of speech, freedom of thought, and freedom of movement. This nation has always cherished these principles. However, when I was about 15, I lost those freedoms. Now I am 56... 40 years later. The first nine years were not only without freedom, but also witnessed real terror and I was always surrounded by fear. Somehow I managed. Now after more than 32 years, although there is no longer that kind of terror or fear, I still remain a refugee. For the most part of my life, I never enjoyed this freedom or liberty. And the worst thing is that thousands and thousands of my Tibetan brothers and sisters have not only lost these freedoms, but they have suffered tremendously, something really unthinkable. Besides this suffering, there is also a lot of destruction. For the present Tibetan generation, we are passing through the most difficult and darkest period in our history.
Sometimes, when I look at this negative side, I feel very sad. But then on the other hand, if there is a challenge, then there is an opportunity to utilize our human intelligence and determination. Its seems to me that the Tibetan nation is not only a civilized one, but also one that possesses genuine inner strength. So, this is a good opportunity to face the challenge. I think after 40 years, after so much destruction, after so much human misery and suffering, the Tibetan spirit was never lost. It is still kept very firmly.
And in recent years, positive changes have taken place in the world as a whole. It is still changing due to many factors, both internal as well as external. I have a deep conviction that things will change. At the same time, this problem is basically a human created one. In order to solve this problem, the answer must come from humanity itself. Nothing else can be blamed. The answer or solution must come from ourselves. With this feeling, with this conviction, when I look around my own country and other continents, I see more or less a similar situation existing in other parts of the world.
The world is becoming smaller and smaller. Our interdependent nature is now much stronger and clearer. I think a crisis in one part of the world is essentially a global crisis. It is the same with the modern economic situation, and also the new environmental and ecological problems. These facts and events show us that humanity needs a wider outlook, a holistic view to solve this crisis, including our own Tibetan issue.
I consider a genuine sense of universal responsibility as the key element. With this motivation, and also the realization of oneness, our entire humanity with it's different human actions and activities can be constructive. I believe this is the beauty.
Unfortunately, there are some cases that I feel are due to ignorance, shortsightedness, and narrow-mindedness. I think in certain fields, such as in international relations or the contact of continent to continent or nation to nation, the atmosphere is not healthy. I think in some cases it is quite sad. We still have something lacking. Look at the recent Gulf crisis. In my mind, this crisis was not due to the behavior of one or two people, but there were many levels of causes.
Therefore, now that East-West tension has been reduced and some of the other factors I mentioned earlier appear to be having a more positive development, perhaps the time has come to think more deeply or more philosophically in order to solve or to find new arrangements that are more enlightened and civilized - or what you call the new world order. I feel the new world order should be based on principles of compassion and freedom.
We need to think very deeply and hold consultations to come up with some kind of master plan for a better world. Sometimes, perhaps I think it is a little bit idealistic, but I feel our role should be based on the principles of democracy, freedom and liberty. I think the ultimate goal should be a demilitarized world. I feel very strongly about this. This may appear very far and we may face many obstacles. But I believe if we keep our determination and effort, we may find some way to achieve this kind of goal. I usually call this `nirvana' or the salvation of humanity.
So in this respect, our entire humanity has a responsibility, particularly this nation. Among others, you have economic power, but the most important thing you have is the opportunity to utilize your human creativity. This is something very good. Therefore, I think America has the potential to make this world straight. Certain activities or certain atmospheres are unhealthy and seem to be very crooked. I think in order to make them straight and more honest, with more human feeling, this nation has the real potential and the ability to correct those smaller nations trying to change the world, but the existing pattern may face some immediate consequences which they cannot face. I think this nation is the only superpower. Therefore, I think you have the opportunity or ability to change it.
When some of you talk about this nation, you have mentioned its ancestors. I think they greatly cherished and implemented these basic human principles. Now, with these principles, I think the time has come for you to expand everywhere, not only in your domestic policy, but also in your relations with other nations and continents. So long as there is human business, I feel we can solve many problems with these principles. This is my hope and my prayer.
Finally, though the Tibetan and Chinese issues have similarities, they are vastly different. Yet on behalf of the six million Tibetans and millions of Chinese brothers and sisters, I would like to express my deepest appreciation and gratitude to this country, particularly to the Congress, for all your support.
Thank you very much.

The New World Order will consist of communities of nations, each bound together by a common religion and culture and joined in economic and political relationships. I foresaw this trend many years ago. That is why for more than forty years I have been promoting inter-religious activities pursuing dialogue and harmony. For a New World Order to be realized, we must prevent religious war.
To solve this problem I have been painstakingly laying the foundation that can embrace every religion. Before I began my ministry, I took the principle which was revealed to me before Jesus, Buddha, Confucius and Mohammed in the spiritual world, and they attested that it was correct. Now leaders of every religion recognize that to substantiate a world of peace all religious people must center on the original teaching and take positive steps to make harmony with each other. It is my God-ordained mission to bring the world into unity under God.
The Inter-Religious Federation for World Peace and the Federation for World Peace will work together as mind and body. Until now, fallen people have been allowing the body to dominate their individual lives, creating a world of selfish individuals, oppressing others for their own pleasures. This is hell on earth. Only a few people have followed the voice of conscience, emanating from the mind, which teaches them to pursue truth, beauty and goodness and to resist the temptations of the body. Only these people can meet God, and find heaven on earth.
When the religious leaders have united for the sake of world peace under God, the politicians will obey the teachings of religion. Then and only then will the social and economic problems be solved, and the nations of the world naturally unite on the path of peace. The Federation for World Peace will succeed where the United Nations and many other organizations have failed because it has this foundation.
The role of scholars for the sake of the New World Order is very important. To insure a well-rounded education for individuals, close communication between all segments of society is necessary. People must constantly cooperate with one another in order to raise up individuals who can develop civilized families, churches, schools and society. The greatest task of our generation is the problem of how to implement this well-rounded education in our pluralistic global village.
|A BOOK REVIEW
A NEW WORLD ORDER:
DEMOCRACY, CIVILITY AND WORLD PEACE
A New World Order: Democracy, Civility and World Peace (Commonwealth 1997) provides a formula based on the Law of Nature (Natural Law); the majority rule, respect for human rights, and global peaceful participation. Fascinating and controversial, this book provides a unique vision of a new world order and a tangible solution to increasing serious international problems.
Casting a perceptive eye on the current world situation, the author asserts that humanity is on the edge of certain disaster unless mankind takes positive steps to avert it.
Mehdi Alavi believes that the United Nations must be empowered to prevent international aggression and human rights violations, bring to justice the individuals responsible for these actions, and force the perpetrators to provide remedy to the victims. "I believe," he says, forcefully, "that the participation of a nation in international affairs is not a right but a privilege which must be earned by proper domestic and international conduct."
Armed with these principles, Alavi begins his work. On the 50th anniversary of the United Nations, he reviews global history and seeks words of wisdom to design a new world order, one that rationally rests on "unalienable Rights," and encourages unity among mankind. He surveys philosophical treatises related to free will, freedom, democracy and peace. He inspects other peaceful movements like those sponsored by the Romans, Persians, Muslims, League of Nations and the United Nations. In an age where religion often appears passe', he skillfully draws from the religious writings of Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam to boost global cooperation and respect for human rights.
For the first time in history, Alavi carefully designs a new world order, based on majority rule and respect for human rights with emphasis on the importance of education and population policy. Then, he revises the new world order for our practical world where suppression, oppression, and violence are the way of life in nations. Every nation with a significant literate population is scrutinized, graded and given two scores, freedom and civility, where the first is a measure of domestic and the second of domestic and international conduct. A nation's civility score is then incorporated into its influence at the United Nations. In the process, he examines the United States democracy, identifies its problems and offers suggestions for improvement.
To broaden readability, Alavi uses elementary English and lively anecdotes. To stimulate intellectual minds, he applies philosophy, theology, and politics to explain ideas. To simplify the analysis, he reserves substantiating mathematics for the appendices.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
In 1965, Mehdi Alavi arrived in the United States with $200 in his pocket. Often working at two or three jobs, he fully supported himself through college, earning several degrees: BSEE and MSEE from Texas Tech University, MBA from University of Houston and Doctorate of Philosophy from Texas A & M University. In 1980s, he managed professional staff on some of the world's most challenging projects. His technical contributions are published in a number of journals, including the prestigious IEEE Transactions. To Alavi, America is the land of opportunity, "Where there is a will, there's a way!" He believes that if he could make it in the United States so can anybody else.
Alavi's interest in freedom, human rights and international affairs stems from the fact that his brothers were tortured for their political views, his baby-brother died in war, and his causin was shot by a sixteen-year-old boy after he had given the robber all the money in the cash register. "With these experiences," Alavi says, deplorably, "I feel I can appreciate the pain and suffering many victims bear due to human rights violations, international aggression and lack of security."
Mehdi Alavi writes with deep conviction. His book, O God!, written in fiction, ordains the standards for universal virtues. The novel is a powerful tool for harvesting inner treasure, empowering us to live to our fullest potential. The book emphasizes the importance of inner relationship. It reveals real life characters, discusses important social and political issues, promotes ethics, and fosters brotherhood.
Alavi's book, A New World Order: Democracy, Civility and World Peace promotes worldwide peace in a new world order. The new order is based on majority rule and respect for human rights. For over a hundred nations, Alavi gives two scores, freedom and civility, where the first is a measure of domestic and the second of domestic and international conduct, to determine their relative influence in the United Nations.
Alavi has spoken before civic groups on America, freedom, democracy, the Middle East, and religion. Presently, he works part-time as a consultant and dedicates most of his time to raising his children. He is writing more books with positive social impact including currently updating data for freedom and civility scores for evaluating our current international influence.

"Further global progress is now possible only through a quest for universal consensus in the movement towards a new world order." -- Mikhail Gorbachev, in an address at the United Nations (December 1988)
In late September, 1995, the Gorbachev Foundation, spearheaded by Mikhail Gorbachev, sponsored a five-day "State of the World" forum at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. Attending the premier event was an impressive parade of approximately 500 international dignitaries, scientists, spiritual leaders, and giants in the business and entertainment industries. The high-powered and the high-profiled - from Vice President Al Gore, Colin Powell, and Margaret Thatcher, to ABC commentator Ted Koppel, and Microsoft, Inc. Chairman William Gates III, to Ted Turner, and John Denver - filled the hotel to discuss the future of the world.
Now an annual event, the forum is scheduled up to the year 2000. The purpose of these meetings is to discuss and formulate initiatives and policies which would advance the "one world order."

Gorbachev gathers pals for a new world order
By Desmond O'Grady in Saint Vincent, Italy
Mikhail Gorbachev wants Malcolm Fraser to help him save the world.
When the former Soviet leader decided to set up a World Governance Forum, the former Australian prime minister was among the politicians he invited to join him.
A Gorbachev aide said there had been a positive response by telephone from Mr Fraser, but he had been unable to attend the forum's inaugural meeting in the Italian alpine resort of St Vincent last week.
Mr Gorbachev told the meeting that after World War I the League of Nations had been established, after World War II the United Nations, and, after the end of the Cold War, new structures were needed to govern globalisation.
The protests of the "people of Seattle" confirmed his analysis, he said.
Mr Gorbachev said his forum would be a political version of the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, which is confined mainly to businessmen and economists.
Those present included the former Polish leader General Wojciech Jaruzelski and the former Italian prime minister Giulio Andreotti.
"We're not returned [political] soldiers," Mr Andreotti said, "but experienced politicians who realise existing international institutions cannot handle new problems."
Representatives of the Italian and European parliaments attended, and Mr Gorbachev announced support from figures such as Jacques Delors, the former European Union commissioner, Mario Soares, the former Portuguese president, and George Bush snr, the former US president.
The former US presidential candidate George McGovern, who is the US ambassador to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation, described the forum as an "enormously important step forward in the history of the world", and Mr Gorbachev as one of the four greatest 20th-century politicians along with Mahatma Gandhi, Sun Yat-sen and Franklin Roosevelt.
PRIDE IS A VIRTUE
Pride as a virtue is considered "moral ambitiousness," (See Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand) because it demands that an individual is to live up to one's ideals. Without pride as a fundamental principle the individual has no means of taking the necessary steps required to achieve self-esteem; therefore pride is a moral principle of valuing one's self. Each individual has a profound need for self-esteem therefore pride as a fundamental principal is essential, in order to achieve a robust self-esteem, grounded in the facts of reality. A healthy self-esteem is not something people can achieve automatically or easily.
How can we justify our regarding Self-esteem as a value? Ayn Rand already did a fine job when she described self-esteem as "one's inviolate certainty that his mind is competent to think and his person is worthy of happiness, which means, worthy of life." Therefore Self-esteem is a positive self-assessment in terms of ones worthiness and ones competency. These two forms of positive self-assessment are the aim of the virtue of pride. As such, pride as a virtue seeks to encourage the individual to seek a positive assessment of one's actions, i.e. self-esteem in one's competency, and grants a reward of oneself to the self as the originator of any and all positive, innovative actions, i.e. in one's worthiness. The result of pride makes a person able to look at one's accomplishments and say both "I did that" and "it is good."
Pride demands a commitment to achieving a positive but honest assessment of oneself in the full context of one's life, and offers two essential perspectives: looking at ones past and hope of a future. By looking at past accomplishments one has an objective earned appreciation of one self, and motivates one to commitment and success in the future
Its is, therefore, justified and right for a person to take credit and feel pride for one's specific achievements, to take time and reward oneself by recognizing oneself with either "I did it," or "This is good" and the feeling of pride in ones own accomplishments. It is not boasting nor vanity but merely taking credit, as a self-accomplished being, and for simply being who one is, in both character and personal intellectual development.
To have a healthy orientation toward the future, pride is an essential tool for enhancing one's self-esteem, for being worthy of life, for building one's character; all of which are essential to mental health. Without pride, it is hard and almost impossible to strive for moral and therefore existential improvement, with oneself as the beneficiary; which simply means that pride is justified by default since one has a responsibility to develop a healthy robust self-esteem.
