[edit] Overview

The Free World Charter is a website that promotes a Charter, written by Colin Turner, a songwriter and music producer from Dublin, Ireland. The charter consists of a statement of principles claimed to have the potential to optimise life on Earth for all species, eradicate poverty and greed, and advance progress. The charter is claimed to be neither political nor religious, and that could form the foundation of a new, advanced society that uses no money, is free, fair and sustainable. They are also claimed to be based solely on nature, common sense and survival.

The website requests visiting users to select which individual principles of the charter the visitor agrees with, and sign the charter. The Charter has the following principles:

  1. The highest concern of humanity is the combined common good of all living species and biosphere.
  2. Life is precious in all its forms, and free to flourish in the combined common good.
  3. Earth's natural resources are the birthright of all its inhabitants, and free to share in the combined common good.
  4. Every human being is an equal part of a worldwide community of humans, and a free citizen of Earth.
  5. Our community is founded on the spirit of cooperation and an understanding of nature, provided through basic education.
  6. Our community provides for all its members the necessities of a healthy, fulfilling and sustainable life, freely and without obligation.
  7. Our community respects the limits of nature and its resources, ensuring minimal consumption and waste.
  8. Our community derives its solutions and advances progress primarily through the application of logic and best available knowledge.
  9. Our community acknowledges its duty of care and compassion for members who are unable to contribute.
  10. Our community acknowledges its responsibility to maintain a diverse and sustainable biosphere for all future life to enjoy.

The Free World Charter is now widely considered[by whom?] a logical progression out of the failing mechanisms of today's society, and a natural step in our evolution.
