I am planning to write a book series titled Ethics of the Nations on the subject of how every nation has applied fifteen principles written in the United Nations charter and 30 articles of the U.N. Human Rights in their nations since 1945 to bring about increased integrity in the world. The intent of this book series is not only to examine how all nations have applied these UN principles since 1945, but also to arouse interest in developing them further. This book series will be useful in diplomacy, leadership, business, education, military and other security force training to create more understanding of the positive achievements that each nation has made in developing these principles and so inspire more cooperation and respect.
This series is most valuable for diplomacy because the fifteen principles are used to measure the correctness or incorrectness of a decision or action. They give the standards. Additionally, the book series presents all efforts of every nation since 1945 to develop and utilize these fifteen principles, and also gives each nation’s plans to further them in the next few years, so in any diplomacy the efforts of all nations toward the achieving of the fifteen principles can be reviewed in the books to see what the most successful ones were, and these can be suggested as solutions to the nations which are having specific problems in dropping certain principles like peace or justice or cooperation, etc. Points of deliberation and mediation can be better made through accurately seeing what each nation has done and is planning to do in upholding these principles. This information is very helpful in building trust and respect for every nation. Also, when trying to resolve a diplomatic or national problem the books are helpful in gaining ideas from the efforts other nations applied in trying to better uphold the thirty U.N. Human Rights.
Business can use this book series to better grasp the developing values and real efforts of each nation to live the high principles of the United Nations. Businesses will then better appreciate the nations’ standards and history of applied values so that only the highest ethical products and services will be sold or manufactured or agreed upon in any deals. Respect to the nations’ principles will be promoted. For example, no product or computer game or video or film that contains violent thought or images will be part of any business deal out of respect to the nations’ principles.
All senior high schools could use the book series in their ethics classes and in government classes and social studies. This series could also be used in college classes, including business and international studies and leadership courses. A teacher’s guide will be prepared to use the book series.
World militaries will be able to use the books in their training camps and academies to teach the genuine efforts of each country to develop these essential principles in themselves and with other countries. The books would be constantly referred to in each interaction with a nation. Thus a more fair appraisal can be made of the countries.
Police and other security forces can use the books in their training programs to end personal prejudices and help create points of understanding with people of other nationalities. Through these books it is hoped that bigotries, misunderstanding, disinterest and disrespect between nations will be ended. It is also hoped that the book series will bring about involvement of more citizen participation within each nation in developing the principles.
Would you please give copies of this letter to all your leaders who are knowledgable of the efforts their nation has made in developing and future planning for the fifteen principles to be covered in this book series and ask them to answer the questions under each principle in this letter? It is asked that each country also give a vision for the future development of the fifteen principles. This book series is also very beneficial as a review of all nations as to how they are achieving the United Nations intentions and goals as agreed upon by all nations since 1945. Please include the addresses of each organization mentioned under the various efforts to carry out each principle so that readers could participate in some of them to help their purposes, and also for research or studies.
