Projet de Loi
Jean De Villeray
• To insure a certain international order on the earth;
• To avoid the overthrow of democratic governments;
• To avoid military dictatorships;
• To avoid internal wars in a country;
• To avoid that countries invade other countries
Presently, the United States are playing the role of international police when it expect its military expenses to be reimbursed. There are surely many other reasons, but all of the other countries are willing to play the same role for the same reasons and at the same conditions. Where there are no material assets - petroleum, mines or others - no nation is willing to try to restore order and peace. And all the other nations say that because the Americans are rich, they can do it.
They can’t do it (it’s too costly, the poor in the country will suffer) and they must not do it. It belongs to the international community to organize itself (it’s its duty) and go forward to do it. It is the duty of all to put in place an organization capable to intervene rapidly and settle the crises before they become unresolvable with excessive losses of life.
This police would replace the United Nations Security Council which is composed of 15 countries amongst which 5 have a veto right.
1. The signatory countries cannot disengage themselves without the consent of their population by secret vote under the supervision of this police.
2. The signatory countries must provide each month for the necessary expenses of this police in order to assure its good operation.
3. Barracks or offices are established in all the signatory countries.
4. Cannot be a member of this police those who have a police record; those who have a police record but have behaved like honest citizens during seven years after their jail term or after having paid a fine are considered rehabilitated and become eligible as soldiers or else.
5. All the members of this police become neutral international citizens and cannot belong to or be a member of a political, patriotic or nationalistic organization.
What are the advantages for an individual in this Police?
All members of this police don’t pay any income taxes or taxes wherever they are and as long as they are members of this police. They have access to free medical services in any public hospital. They receive the salary of a middle class worker, based upon the average salary in the signatory countries. Free transportation in the subways and busses when they are in duty and wear their uniform. After 30 years of service, they can retire and live in any country (among the signatory countries) but loose all these advantages. The highest salary paid shall not exceed by more than 25% the lowest.
What are the disadvantages or inconvenient?
During trouble times, when he is in duty, the member of this police could be positioned in a foreign country as long as the crisis subsists. He can’t disengage himself without the consent of his superiors if his presence is considered vital or indispensable. If he quits the service or is expelled, his departure is definitive.
Contributions of countries
Each country contributes to the setting-up of the international police by supplying human resources, material and equipment as much as it can. How? By supplying 1% of its manpower and 1% of its gross national product for those who can. Or we can also choose the complex formula of payment applied by the United Nations. We must not consider this contribution as a war tax, but rather as a peace tax or a peace insurance policy. This peace insurance policy will allow to avoid an excessive spending in trouble times. For sure, the costs could differ from time to time but countries could agree on increasing or decreasing the costs. It should be clearly understood that the costs should never exceed one percent (1%).
Conditions for membership of a country in the International Police
1. To have a democratically elected government.
2. To adhere to the Convention of Geneva, to pledge itself to respect the international rules, the anti-pollution laws with respect to water, air or land, the law with respect to fishing and whale protection as well as anti-drug laws.
We could also add other conditions but it is preferable at first to have few requirements and gradually add to those later on.
How does the International Police work?
it works as works a city or municipal police. As soon as it receive a S.O.S. call from a country leader, right away it send as much manpower as it feels necessary to re-establish the peace and it is the police who totally controls the operations until the peace is re-established. It then has all of the powers it feels necessary to lead the operations. The country is then under guardianship. The country does not have additional charges to pay because it’s already paid for. Once the operations are over, the country is gave back to those who detained the power before. And if is seems there are a general discontent, monitored elections are organized to put back things in order.
The police does not have the right to deny a call for help. It must answer in the shortest possible period of time, as would an ambulance called to the site of an accident. If a leader got worried for nothing, we forget it and consider the operation as an exercise. The police detains every powers, even the right to enter in any house of the country at any hour day or night. It can detain and interrogate an individual as long as deemed necessary.
Is it possible that abuses occur? For sure, but we must trust this police, because it is not the police of a country, but rather a neutral police, impartial, at the service of all of the countries’ mankind. If this police commits abuse, the country could then decide by way of a referendum to get rid of it.
Do you wish that such a police exists? Yes or no? If yes, talk about it to your deputy, your minister, your parents, your friends, your enemies, your cat and dog. Who knows? The latest might be more intelligent than the first ones…
