Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1001 to 1500
~ Idea 1317 ~
17 February 1998
There is now a very strong current in the world that to human rights should be added human responsibilities and duties. This will come up strongly at the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights this year. For the first time also in human history we will have an Earth Charter which defines the "rights" of the Earth, i.e. our duties towards her.

All this leads me to conclude that henceforth the best economics in the world is to take into full account the value, preservation and proper management and renewal of our Earth. Perhaps in order to bring this closer to the people we should change the names ecology and economics (Greek oikos, logos and nomos, knowledge, and management of the home) to Earthology (science or knowledge of the Earth) and Earth management. In the political language we should replace world government by Earth government and the United Nations Organization by Earth and Humanity Organization. The Charter of the UN does not mention once the words Earth, nature and ecology. This shows the dramatic changes which have taken place since World War II. An entirely new philosophy (love of wisdom) and ideology (science of ideas) are being born on this planet.

Volume II Chapter 12 - Of Forgiveness
Dear God, please forgive me for not having loved life and your Creation as I should have. What a misguided fool I was! How I will regret it in my tomb!

"Do not worry, dear son, you will have all the time to do a lot of good from heaven. I will use you to the brim."
