Mohammed Mesbahi. Heralding Article 25: A Peoples’ Strategy for World Transformation.

(Kibworth Beauchalp, UK: Matador Books, 2016).

For the time has come when we must demonstrate in our millions not against this or that;  but on the basis of the goodwill and compassion that defines who we truly are. For within each and every human heart is embodied the love of wisdom of all humanity. 

Mohammed Mesbahi.

                            Mohammed Mesbahi.

Global economic change for a better world  by ending poverty and hunger;  and implementing a basic needs development framework;  also requires an  inner transformational change within individuals on a collective and mass scale.  The  author calls for a worldwide awakening of compassion and empathy;  toward the poorest members of the human family;  millions of whom are needlessly dying each year.

The Basic Needs approach is set out in Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services and the right to security in he event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, ole age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.” 

The author stresses that the beauty and promise of the United Nations founding vision be recognized anew with a reawakened understanding of its indispensable future potential.

The Basic Needs approach was further developed at the June 1976;   World Employment Conference of the International Labour Organization. (1)

The Basic Needs approach  is also highlighted in the Commission on Development Policies chaired by  Willy Brandt. (2)

Willy Brandt

The Brandt Commission proposals;  would involve directing considerable amounts of additional finances to underfunded humanitarian agencies;  as well as deep cuts in money spent on arms.  A reordering of global priorities toward meeting the basic needs of all people;  is dependent on achieving a rapid de-escalation of the military and armament budgets.

Again and again;  the reader is urged to look at the current global crises – poverty, armed conflicts, climate change, environmental degradation – from a truly planetary inclusive and holistic viewpoint;  and an awareness  of the interconnectedness and spiritual unity of humanity.  The principles of sharing and cooperation are the foundation of a sustainable  global economic system.

Understanding The Interconnectedness of World Problems.

Understanding the interconnectedness of world problems;  means that we recognize our responsibility to act as ambassadors of the necessary international cooperation. 

The challenges facing us are manifestly international in scope;  and can no longer be tackled on a strictly national or unilateral basis.

However;  more than awareness is needed.

If we declare and truly believe that another world is possible;  then what are we going to do about our blindfolded politicians;  our collective indifference and com placement and all the ‘isms’ that  are preventing us from finding our way to truth and freedom?”

There is a need for collective;  world-wide action of people and organizations demanding a Basic Needs approach to economic and social policies. It is not enough that there be positive currents in a few countries.  World challenges must be met by world-wide responses.  This is one of the aims of the Association of World Citizens.
