To the World
The Charter for Permanent Peace
– the Best System for Human Beings
--- Chien-ming Huang
Question 1: What should I believe? (One of the three big questions of philosophy)
A: I believe that I can determine my own value, the value of the country and the value of the world:
- "It is jealousy and lack of confidence which prescribes limited constitutions, to bind down those whom we are obliged to trust with power. Our Constitution has accordingly fixed the limits to which, and no further, our confidence may go.’—Thomas Jefferson: Draft, Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.
- Believe in the rule of law and science. Do not believe in the great jurists who compose to the "dictator's voice", the big entrepreneurs who acclaim for the "profit concession of the authoritarians", or the politicians, media and scholars who cheer for "the smile of the totalitarian" - they are the beneficiaries of the accomplice structure.
- One aspect of my beliefs is "Why Nations Fail": Everything goes back to the system. I believe that the "inclusive system" is better than the "exclusive system" expounded by authoritarian dictatorships. It offers a fundamental way out for individuals and nations by eliminating the subject conscious of reliance on “wise emperors" and “honest bureaucrats", and promoting rights-based, part-responsible citizenship, that rejects rule of the persons and respects rule of law.
- When values are determined by others, they will be taken away by others. Only values that are determined by yourself cannot be taken away. Letting others decide your constitutional values means giving your soul to others to dominate your body. Constitutional amendments must be decided by the people.
- Comparison will determine which is better. The comparison method is an invincible tactic. Thus, we believe in the human wisdom accumulated over thousands of years. Trust your eyes and hands, use your mobile phone and ask questions, and you will find the basis of the rights that protect your dignity and values. Choose the most favorable law around the world (provided by the association) for yourself, manage your constitutional guarantors payed by your taxes according to the constitution, and enhance the value of yourself and the country.
- I believe that [Taiwan] is a beacon of democracy. More than 10 million people travel across the Taiwan Strait each year. There is no language or cultural barriers, meaning that the people of [Taiwan] are in a unique position to break through the CCP's internal information blockade and lead the Chinese people to democratize. When that happens, permanent peace will be achieved. The long river of history inundates all empires. As long as you believe in the wisdom of the rule of law of all human beings, you can transform the destiny of the nation-the family-the person. You can turn the tables and contribute to the world.
Question 2: What may I hope? (The second big question of philosophy)
A: You can have your own dreams, national dreams, and world dreams based on the Charter for Permanent Peace:
- Believe the first part - preparation clause - seventh item, about self-actualization: you are the master of the country; also the navigator who creates freedom, democracy, human rights, rule of law (for details, §1 ~ §4); and lifelong holders of sovereignty in legislation, administration, prosecution, and justice (§5~§8).
- Rolling transformation and integration of standardization (Figure3). The advantages of this charter are not included in any other country’s laws, and shortcomings in any other country’s laws are not included in this charter. The articles guarantee that you are the representative of universal values, and show that everyone will achieve self-actualization, live and work in peace, and prosper through generations. It will let you enhance the world, and look beyond the past and the present. The country is great because of you, and the world is peaceful because of you.
- For the time being [Taiwan] is not able to function as a normal country and take part in international organizations; but as soon as it can act as a supra-national government and assume its calling as a savior of freedom and democracy, it will be the capital of Unity and the sun of peace, and you will shine as well, wherever you go.
- If the people of [Taiwan] cannot make the transformation to this supra-national level, even if they take the form of the Republic of [Taiwan] they will be no more than a group of scarecrows without the soul of a nation.
Question 3: What ought I do? (The third big question of philosophy)
A: The Constitution is the fundamental law of the country. The right of Constitutional amendments will always belong to the people unconditionally. As long as you support the demonstration of the Charter for Permanent Peace, every email is a sacred light:
- Autocracy is always the enemy of human peace. Constitutional reforms promoted by those in power always usurp the power of the people. Constitutional amendment is absolutely the right and obligation of the people alone. As Kant said, "The pursuit of permanent peace is the highest goal of rationality and a moral obligation."
- This Constitution is not an unattainable ideal, nor is it a Utopian socialist theory. It is a fundamental great law that we can apply immediately and all countries can follow. It can specifically save countries that are not completely democratic, and save human civilization from nuclear mutual destruction.
- People who live on the earth in different regions sharing cultural, racial and national diversity have the right to press trigger the button of "permanent peace", without taking any military actions. As long as you band together to support [Taiwan] Model of the "Permanent Peace Charter", it will lead the country to move forward courageously, attract the world to follow bravely, launch the largest wave of global democratization, save more than half of the oppressed people in the world, determinate the dictatorship, nuclear and chemical weapons forever.
