The world is on the precipice of either World War III or World Peace. I believe a war-weary world is ready to embrace World Peace.
The world needs and wants an alternative to war. Once countries deal openly with each other there’s no limit to what we can accomplish together.
Country Acquisition Example Outline –
Once we achieve World Peace countries will need a world-wide approved diplomatic policy adopted to redefine their borders.
This proposal includes the creation and institution of a World Peace Organization, the WPO, that will oversee a peaceful negotiation of any Country’s concerns that would here-to-fore have resulted in War. And the drafting of a World Standardized Nation Inclusion Petition that would be used as a means to acquire a country or region without the need for war. The writing of a Two Country Consolidation Treaty should be drawn up to and agreed to by the countries involved. The TCCT, Two Country Consolidation Treaty is to be amended by the countries involved to suit their individual needs.
I will use the fictional Nation of Algadones as an example of a future Country, Nation, Kingdom, or Motherland wishing to expand or to redefine its borders. In this example Algadones would like to add the fictional Country of Kinglet.
The explanation of these six steps is contained at the end of this post:
1. The acquiring government’s decision.
2. The Petitioner Nation Popular Vote.
3. The World Standardized Nation Inclusion Petition or offer with proposals of what the petitioned nation can expect, is to be presented to the World Peace Organization.
The World’s standardized approved Nation Inclusion Petition with proposals of what the petitioned nation can expect can be drawn up. The NIP can be presented by the World Peace Organization or the Country doing the petitioning.
4. The mandatory vote of the people of the Nation being petitioned. These votes should be counted regionally and collectively.
5. Acceptance or Declination.
If all regions of the petitioned Nation decline (vote ’No’) then nothing more can be done.
If some regions vote ‘Yes’ but the majority of the petitioned Country’s votes are ‘No’ votes, then the option to secede should be offered to the regions that voted ‘Yes.’
If all regions accept then a Two Country Consolidation Treaty and acceptance application is to be drawn up and approved by the World Peace Organization. With that the process would be complete.
6. New Country Boundaries
The example, using the fictional Nation of Algadones the fictional Country of Kinglet, of the breakdown is as follows:
1. The Acquiring Government’s Decision
The government of the Nation of Algadones decides it wants to include the Country of Kinglet into its Country.
2. The Petitioner Nation Popular Vote
The government of Algadones then informs the people of Algadones of the pros and cons of including Kinglet in their Country and they put the proposal to a vote. The people of Algadones vote whether to invite Kinglet to join the Nation of Algadones. The vote should be counted by region and should include a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ vote.
If the majority of the people of Algadones vote to petition Kinglet to be included in the Algadones Nation; then Algadones will offer the government of Kinglet the Algadones government’s World Standardized Nation Inclusion Petition or offer.
The World’s Standardized Nation Inclusion Petition or offer with proposals of what the petitioned nation can expect is next presented to the newly established World Peace Organization for approval.
The WPO approved Nation Inclusion Petition with proposals of what the petitioned nation can expect, can then be submitted to the petitioned Nation by either the World Peace Organization or the Petitioner Country.
4. Popular Vote of the Petitioned Country
Once Kinglet gets the petition, the people of Kinglet have a mandatory vote on the decision to become a state, region or province of Algadones or whatever designation the Petition states.
5. Acceptance or Declination
If Kinglet votes ‘Yes’ then those two countries draw up an agreement to have Kinglet become part of Algadones.
If the vote in Kinglet shows only one region or area of Kinglet wants to join Algadones then another vote should be taken to see if the country will allow that region to secede and join Algadones. If that vote is ‘Yes’ then it will be up to the seceded region and the petitioner work out that agreement based on the Two Country Consolidation Treaty.
If the majority of the people of Kinglet vote ‘No’ then nothing further can be done.
6. New Country Boundaries
Once the TCCT is ratified by the WPO the new Country definition can be accepted into the UN, assuming the country is a candidate for the UN or is already a UN member.
Note: Ideally the WPO will be made up of five former Nobel Peace Prize recipients from varying countries.
The TCCT can be drafted using input from various countries’ Secretaries of State.
