This is the (temporary) home of the
Global Human Party
This organisation, although labelled a 'Party', does not seek election in any nation. Its purpose is to propose a system of global government, help refine that proposal, and help the species get used to the idea.
The way in which we organise ourselves into a system of competing nation states is not a product of conscious design, but is a product of multi generational evolution.
Nation states have been useful tools during the evolution of the human species. However, this system that we use to organise ourselves perpetuates problems such as wars, land disputes, tariffs, borders, tax havens, trade wars, national debt, terrorism and mass migration. It actively promotes cultural differences that prevent us working together as a global society, and is responsible for preventing global responses to natural disasters and man-made problems. It makes us squander resources and effort on defensive and offensive competition and entangles many of us in economic debt that prevents us improving our situation.
The paper “On the organisation of the species” proposes that we now have the tools to consciously design a better system, and explores ways to achieve it.

What is in it?
It proposes that we take a bold evolutionary step in the way we organise ourselves, and move on from our current system of competing nation states towards one global system of government.
It proposes that cultures free themselves from geographical boundaries, enabling global diasporas to co-exist within a single efficient governance framework.
It focuses on a long term species vision that requires a better way to organise ourselves so that we do not destroy each other, or our home, and do develop the technologies necessary to live off planet before cosmic forces make earth uninhabitable.
It proposes common governance processes, common global services, and a common financial model to enable us to tackle major global issues.
It answers underlying questions such as:
- How do we prevent wars?
- How do we raise living standards and ‘level up’ globally?
- How do we enable global free movement of people goods and services and remove trade barriers and tariffs?
- How do we finance a transition to green technology and infrastructure?
- How do we finance the research and development of technology to live off-planet?
- How do we organise ourselves at a global scale to achieve the benefits of species collaboration and rule of law yet retain personal freedom?
- How do we manage migration, over-population and demographic change?
- How do we prevent famine?
- How do we reduce the drugs trade and its effects?
- How do we improve infrastructure (housing, water, electricity, communications) to common global standards?
- How can we better respond to pandemics and natural disasters?
- How can we resolve national border disputes and national resource disputes?
- How can we remove the shackles of national debt?
- How can we improve democratic processes to fit a global scale?
- What are the pros and cons of autocracy, direct democracy, representative democracy and party politics? Which would be best for a global society?
- How can we harness capitalism and socialism to support our species and and improve its capabilities?
- How can multiple cultures co-exist without conflict or isolation?
- How can corruption be reduced to the point where people trust the system and the system trusts the people?
- How can businesses and people contribute to our common success, in a competitive environment?
It proposes a contract between state, citizen and organisation that enables the exploration and adoption of new ideas, while providing the stability that allows us to achieve long term aims.
The paper then explores how we might adopt this new system, and transition from our current situation. It identifies blockers that might prevent transition, and behaviours that will make it easier. It also attempts to identify which of our current nations or institutions might lead the charge, why ‘federations’ won't cut it and, most importantly, what individuals and organisations can do to help now.
Could the EU, UN, CCP, US or a religion lead us into a global system? How long might it take? What responsibilities would be required of a citizen? How could businesses and other organisations play a part in the system and contribute to the species vision?
Too good to be true? Maybe. Have a read and then make up your own mind. Read it, think on it, relax your own national and cultural bonds and become one with the species, even if it is only temporary.
Consider that at birth, there is no notion of nation or culture. These are taught to us by those who have it already.
It would be perfectly possible to instill a single global governance culture if the next generation were taught to do so from birth.
Law, money, nation, religion, border and debt are all concepts that we have invented.
They only exist because we have told ourselves that they do, and we can refashion them to our evolving needs as required.
Nations are already aggregations of families, clans, tribes and regions.
A global government system is the next logical step.
A system of global law and a single economy is the only way to escape our perpetual cycle of international conflict, destructive competition and inequality of infrastructure and services.
Better social organisation is the only real solution that can help us sustainably manage the exploitation of our limited natural resources and protect us from global threats.
