   Citizens in the streets of the world are crying out for “JUSTICE, HUMAN RIGHTS & DEMOCRACY  
   Yet even when the old rulers fall, they’ve been replaced by the military or other rulers who just dish out more of the same – oppression, bureaucracy, riches for the few, exploitation of nature, and money policy based on unsustainable growth, debt, and war.  Why?  Because such universal concepts as “Democracy” and “justice” cannot be realized in an 18th century, dysfunctional, war-dominated and artificial political entity called a “nation".  
   As long as we allow the old order to artificially divide us into nationalities, the true power of the people will never be realized. Humanity entered the 21st century with its survival in question. But humanity also entered this century with the knowledge and tools to make a successful "Crossover" to One World NowToday, we must think and act as citizens of the world on behalf of all generations to follow. The only way we can truly claim our power is to move beyond protest and rebellion and become the creators and founders of a new way for we-the-people to run our small planet. We must choose a positive way to transcend the entire broken system of nation-states and ask the question, “How can we, as sovereign world citizens, govern our world?”

   The first step has already been taken. In 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), adopted unanimously by the United Nations, stated “Everyone is entitled to a social and international order” which can protect human rights and freedoms.  It called on “every individual” to take “progressive measures both national and international” to secure these rights.  
   Eleanor Roosevelt, the US delegate to the UN, went further and wrote  “How very much better it would be if Mr. Davis would set up his own governmental organization and start then and there a worldwide international government…”  
   So, in 1953, with 750,000 people signed up as World Citizens, I declared the “World Government of World Citizens.”
   The new government established the World Service Authority (WSA) in Washington DC, as the microcosmic beginning of a new model for a people-powered world.  It started by providing a service for individuals to identify themselves as world citizens by obtaining world ID’s, Passports, Birth Certificates and other documents based on the UDHR. The declaration of Human Rights was the great gift of the 20th century to human governance.
    Buckminster Fuller, design-science philosopher, wrote that “"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete." In 1993, inspired by the genius of Buckminster Fuller, cybernetician Stafford Beer, Commissioner of World Cybernetics  (1987-1994) invented a protocol for self-organization and self-government of we, citizens of Earth. Its formal title is "The World Syntegrity Project." You can observe the results of the grassroots "Infoset" meetings from 14 cities on 4 continents--with over 500 volunteers "syntegrating" to answer the question: How can we, sovereign world citizens, govern our world?  (See )
    "Syntegration" is a transparent, proven method to unite our wills, both as individuals and together as members of a world community of fellow humans.---much like a symphony orchestra is composed both of individual instrumentalists and functions as a whole at the same time.
   The aim of the worldwide grassroots meetings was to provide subject matter for the eventual elaboration of a flexible, ongoing and dynamic “world constitution” wherein each and every citizen could play a vital and useful part.
   With the digital one world technology, world citizen agreements, knowledge and actions are today already inter-connected in the frontierless “technosphere”—the planetary real-time knowledge-enriched collective intelligence commons of humanity. With satellites, we are experiencing the first waves of citizen-centered connectivity, and the World Syntegrity Project 4.0 offers world citizens a ready tool to go from unstructured  NO  to coherent  YES.  The basis of YES for humanity is already expressed and codified in the above-mentioned Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  "The will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of government." (Art 21[3], UDHR) Our agreement to think and act as a world citizen is expressed in the Statement of Allegiance  (see appendix 1 or  web-site registration form for world citizen registration).
   The aim of WSP4.0 then is to provide a world governance space to enable world citizens to focus on and achieve specific Crossover actions based on the recognition of humanity and Planet Earth as sovereign.
   When you meet in a "World Syntegrity" gathering, you are already in the “Global Commons” as world citizens seeking the agreements and actions that realize the challenges of the core question ([3]).  When connected with the communication power of the ‘one-world technosphere’,  it unites  those who “enter”  OUR  GLOBAL SPACE with all other world citizens who together acknowledge and affirm its legitimacy. The collective intelligence of humanity can thus be focused effectively to find and enact the Crossover actions that enable individuals-in-society to make it successfully to a viable 21st century future.
   The totally democratic structure of the meetings in the geometric form of the icosahedron allows 30 individuals of diverse backgrounds, cultures and social status to join in a disciplined framework to arrive at a whole-system answer to the World Citizen Question: [4]
   The protocol is available from WSP 4.0 for world citizen use. We are looking for co-researchers-in-action to build the continuous learning system that connects the syntegrity follow-throughs with other world citizens to enable coherent, transparent, sociocratic, simultaneous Crossover.
   The results of the  original 1993 “Infosets” were transferred daily  to the WSA’s site, for all the world to peruse. What became most striking from the first round of World Syntegrity Project “Infosets” was the similarity of concerns addressed in diverse parts of the world.[5][3] In many cases, infoset participants in far-flung locales arrived at nearly identical conclusions. Ecological preservation, multicultural diversity, drug legalization and economic responsibility were just a few of the issues addressed in common by the various infosets. This was in 1993—before the omni-presence of the World Wide Web.  These same issues are now real-time, front-line news—20 years further along, and, mostly, 20 years further down the wrong road. The nuclear option, for one, is still ticking away on the national Armageddon clock.
   Any group of world citizens are offered to use the WSP protocol within the terms of reference of the world government principles inherent in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Pledge of Allegiance. 
   Let us suppose that in Cairo, Alexandria, Tunis, Tripoli, Damascus, Tokyo, Baghdad, Jerusalem, Gaza City, Tehran, Baghdad, Riyadh, Jeddah, Geneva, Manchester, etc., etc., 30 people gathered for three days using the icosahedron as model to “play” the game, “Syntegration,” generating answers to the prime question:

 “How can we, sovereign world citizens living in world cities co-govern our way forward to a viable society/world partnership?
   WSP 4.0 will connect the answers, concepts, people and action, over the next 3 years to:    make explicit, measured, forward movement on core societal needs/goals relating to the survival and benefit of humanity living in/travelling through our cities; locate the principles and policy agreements that make sense to align Crossover initiatives;  seek global world citizen legitimization of these results; develop capacity and competence for citizen-centered societal governance; co-operate fully in enabling a successful Crossover of all our World Cities to a viable future; join other world citizens and create the outcomes that matter together.[6]
   Article 19 of the UDHR, to which all Member-States of the UN are subject, provides that “Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion…” while Article 20 provides that “Everyone has the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and association.”  The issue is one of sovereign right. Every national constitution with the exception of Saudi Arabia, provides that its original power derives from the people themselves.  

  As “World Citizen No. 1”, I here (re)announce this updated world peace-affirming program. We are enjoining a citizen-centered world future to enable World Citizens, at all levels, to tackle the issues of human survival facing humanity.   Having worked 60 years to articulate the principles, practices, and protocols of world citizenship, we are now re-activating the World Syntegrity Project to amplify and integrate the values of human sovereignty in transcending the nation state prisons we are all in.  

   We are already FREE and our POWER IS NOW!

   All aboard Spaceship Earth!

   Launching of WSP4.0 Crossover Facility.
   Resourcing  Offer from World Syntegrity Project.

   Each  world citizen syntegration increases the value of all world citizen syntegrations.  To establish the effectiveness and viability of the WSP in its Re-Activate phase (2012-2015), a resourcing schema is presented below.  The start-up funding requires a Booster funding to achieve and sustain the Momentum required for effectiveness in the 21st century.  That funding will evolve in a 3 year agreement with our key allies.
   Foundation Stewards:
   These are individuals /groups of individuals who identify themselves as world citizens and commit the funds necessary to implement the syntegrated agreements around a Core Crossover question that matters to them most.  They participate in the Launch Event and make available the requisite resources for the 6 month follow-through to bridge the time between launch event and next resource infusion.
   These will identify themselves on a case-to-case basis.  We seek a launch fund of 480.000 euros to ensure the competence and capacity of our digital socio-infrastructure. For 2012.
    Viable Future Investors.
    These are individuals and organizations who will partner with world citizens to accomplish a priority Crossover.  (e.g. From heavy to light footprint;   FROM fossilized infra-structures TO renewable infra-structures. ETC>)  They co-create the solution with a high-talent  world citizen team and are entitled to claim a R * 0 * I * achievement in  ROI currency[7].    We seek only partnerships with for profit organizations willing to take responsibility for their own organization’s  Crossover mandate(s). 
   World Syntegrity Project is available to enable world citizens in world cities to make significant Shifts in their city-planet relationships.   These problems, held by local governments, and addressed by local world citizens, provides feasible answers for citizen-centered responsibility in major Crossover issues. (eg. migration; eg. C02 reduction; disaster resilience. Etc.   We invite urban leadership to use the world talent living in their city to integrate a citizen-centered whole planet element in their Crossover strategy.
   Local Champions.
   Six world citizens can host a World Syntegrity project. 30-42 people have the breadth of experience/influence and depth of commitment to liberate the social energy required to make rapid social-system Shifts.   At the moment, we can only provide the quality service the ReStart Up of WSP 4.0 demands for a minimum market price of 30.000 euros.  This is an extremely low service fee—for a protocol that cuts Start to Results time by more than 50%; delivers 30 -40 high-agreement  solutions; and is immediately eligible for significant large funding.
   The lowly-resourced.
   If you are six world citizens with a Common Quest of world citizenship, and have the involvement of the key people you want to succeed with,  send us your question, the participants who have agreed to join in, and the place FROM which the six of you want to move TO the place you want to get to as world citizens in the coming 2-3 years.   We’re already seeking funding for you!

The generic question is always:   How can we as sovereign world citizens govern our world?  The current 21st version of that question is: How can we, as world citizens living in (a large city..or a watershed.. or around an ocean.. or… or..) ____________, Crossover FROM ______ national   TO  -global   government  in the shortest possible time without ecological offense of the disadvantage of anyone?  
[4] "Crossover" signifies that the dimension of World is core to where we are moving as a species.  WSP 4.0 focus  for the next 3 years is to enable citizens of the world to make the specific, significant FROM-TO decisions relevant to their situation and its place in the World.   All Crossover Questions include Planet as relevant recursion and all Coherent Sets are government-in-action experiments.   WSP 4.0 is in a learning-in-action phase and is currently designing a Continuous Improvement Learning System for syntegrated world citizenry.

[6] This, of course, has to be designed and implemented. Thus a Crossover Question:  How can we, as sovereign world citizens, co-create a reciprocal value-exchange economy  to accelerate successful Crossover to  self-governing non-hierarchical systems of government on planet Earth?  Each question comes out of the hosts of the event, a unique variation of our Earth generic question:  How can we as sovereign world citizens govern (in) our  world together?   This question is asked in an area of application (e.g. Artic Ocean; e.g. Moslem country. E.g. World Tourism Association,  etc.)  and is open to others to join, co-create, co-own responsibilities and rewards, etc.
