Its excellent that this is suggested, it's a wonderful dream which we can each accomplish on our own or in communities that may gradually spread. However. to demand that every government in the world drop the monetary system (THAT ALONE) is outrageous. It's not a system I even acknowledge but this will just never happen with 10,000 votes. Optimistic isn't even the word. All resources distributed based on the requirements of the people. What are all the resources then? What are the...

Its excellent that this is suggested, it's a wonderful dream which we can each accomplish on our own or in communities that may gradually spread. However. to demand that every government in the world drop the monetary system (THAT ALONE) is outrageous. It's not a system I even acknowledge but this will just never happen with 10,000 votes. Optimistic isn't even the word. All resources distributed based on the requirements of the people. What are all the resources then? What are the requirements of the people? Its one thing to ask for this, but then what? How does this petition even begin to suggest how this can be done? It's irresponsible and will be ignored. Until a movement can work along side the current way of things constructively and thoughtfully, things like this will always be ignored. If anyone were to carry out the suggestions in this the world would implode. Not in a good way.

all the institutions teaches us about war, destruction and greed. none teaches us about peace, love and unity..

Although you may see the goal of 1,000,000,000 a little on the ridiculous side, I believe this is totally do-able. Yes, we were born into a world where money, corruption and greed have already been set in stone, but deep down we know this is not right. Some of us see the millions that are homeless, then see even more empty houses, and we know something isn't right. We have the technology and the resources to feed, shelter, and clothe EVERY human being on earth. Yet so many have to go hungry...

Although you may see the goal of 1,000,000,000 a little on the ridiculous side, I believe this is totally do-able. Yes, we were born into a world where money, corruption and greed have already been set in stone, but deep down we know this is not right. Some of us see the millions that are homeless, then see even more empty houses, and we know something isn't right. We have the technology and the resources to feed, shelter, and clothe EVERY human being on earth. Yet so many have to go hungry on the streets, with worn-out clothes if they are lucky, and drinking dirty water, all while we pee in clean water. We believe this is fair because it's the way it's always been; we also believe we are too insignificant to truly make a difference. Well, this is exactly what they want us to believe, but we can use our voice and our words; together, we have power in numbers, and our numbers could be greater, and give us greater power, than they ever imagined. The current world is ruled by paper, true, but naturally it's meant to be ruled by love.

We can take this planet back, and it is time!

Are you serious?! This petition is for sharing resources and moving away from a cash-based society to help the entire world's citizens have everything they need. You missed the whole point of this petition: it is not about homeless people. It is about America resource hoarding and having the ability to feed, clothe and shelter people all around the world. But instead, they'd rather have us work for pieces of paper that have no real value, take a chunk so that they don't have to work or...

Are you serious?! This petition is for sharing resources and moving away from a cash-based society to help the entire world's citizens have everything they need. You missed the whole point of this petition: it is not about homeless people. It is about America resource hoarding and having the ability to feed, clothe and shelter people all around the world. But instead, they'd rather have us work for pieces of paper that have no real value, take a chunk so that they don't have to work or provide anything of value, and give the rest in government handouts.

Like i said, you completely missed the point of this post, but on your subject: Since the dollar has moved away from being gold- or silver-backed, it is completely unfair to say that because someone doesn't have a piece of paper, they can't get a clean shirt, or clean water. Some people are homeless because they have mental illness, or they do not believe they are able to get out of their situation. We have 3.5 million homeless in America, and over 10 million empty homes. The banks will purposely give people mortgages they know they can't pay, just to be able to foreclose and make a profit.

If you think this paper-based economy will hold up for long, you are wrong. The only value it holds is in the mind of it's possessor: once we realize it's not worth anything, it will no longer be able to control our society.

I wish that this wasn't framed as a "Petition" I liked the opening statement of "IT IS MY WILL..." but at the bottom its suggests we're signing a petition. I want to get away from the serfs begging their masters paradigm. Anyway, maybe this is less designed to impress 'governments' as to encourage individuals who might feel alone and powerless that they are not a lone voice, and to that cause I have signed.

It means exactly what it says, People's Mandate. Regrettably unless you have studied law, which 99.9 % of the public haven't, then they are not aware of the legal/lawful dynamics between a petition and a mandate. Please re read the preamble, it lays out the fact, that elected governments can only govern, if given a People's Mandate. And they have to obey the WILL of the people. A mandate is not a request, it is a Command.

We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at soem kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian=Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments of inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living."

I think this is more to get attention to the matter, but me and chelsea are having the same feelings. Something inside both of us is screaming that it is time.

I am a single mum of four in the UK, I have been on benefits for years now, without them me & my children would not be where we are now. I am so grateful for the benefit/charity the UK has given me & my family. So much so I would be more than happy to share my portion with them that have nothing in other countries. It is my dream that no one has to go hungry or drink dirty water, be homeless or naked. One world, it's not hard to achieve. Greed separates us & poisons the earth. Right now a...

I am a single mum of four in the UK, I have been on benefits for years now, without them me & my children would not be where we are now. I am so grateful for the benefit/charity the UK has given me & my family. So much so I would be more than happy to share my portion with them that have nothing in other countries. It is my dream that no one has to go hungry or drink dirty water, be homeless or naked. One world, it's not hard to achieve. Greed separates us & poisons the earth. Right now a child is being raped somewhere, another is being beat halve to death, another has died from drinking dirty water & another has died from hunger. People say to me there is nothing we can do about it & that charity starts at home. For me the earth is my home (all of it,) therefor the charity is worldwide. WE CAN CHANGE THE EARTH FOR THE BETTER, we have been doing it for centuries now. Treat others as YOU yourself would like to be treated, for karma has a way of making it so. ♥

Being a mom for all there children would mean they actually have to take responsibility for their babies. Besides that is the monetary system not a Resource Based Economy...
