 To:  Meet the Minimum Needs of All
  By M. Radh Achuthan

 We could meet the “Minimum Needs of All’ (MMNA) through restitution
 and a “Restorative Justice Compact” between the Rich and the Poor.

 The minimum needs are:

 — Sufficient drinking water for each per day.

 — Nutrition of 2,500 calories per day, per person.

 — Localized basic clothing and shelter

 — Basic primary health care.

 — Substantive primary education of five years duration, in practice.

 In our world population of about six billion, 2.9 billion live on less than $3
 or Euros per day, and 1.3 billion within that population live on less than $1
 or 1 Euro per day. The 2.9 billion may be designated as The Poor; they
 live mainly in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns =
 "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Africa, Latin America,
 South Asia and China. The discussion that follows applies to the
 population of 2.9 billion people who live on less than $3 per day as
 outlined above.

 First, what has been done to remove poverty at these levels in the 21st
 century? People have been concerned, and their concern is reflected in
 certain developments. During 2002, powerful world institutions such as the
 United Nations, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and the World
 Trade Organization arrived at “The Millennium Development Compact”
 (MDC), which intends to remove the dire poverty of the 1.3 billion people
 who live on less than $1 per day by the year 2015. Even if all the
 conditions of the MDC were met, it is unlikely that the MDC will unfold as
 expected, since only the economic incentive within the politics of time
 (enabling the Poor to become consumers makes business sense in the long
 run) has been advanced to fuel the MDC.

 What is missing but vaguely implied and necessary is an ethical compact
 between the groups identified as the Rich and the Poor, to realize
 restitution and restoration at these levels of justice, so far unrealized in
 human society within the politics of eternity. This ethical component to
 remove dire poverty, and in addition to meet the minimum needs of all, has
 yet to be crafted.

 Second, spiritually, human beings have been working toward this end, and
 in the 21st century, after the lessons of World War I and the Cold War of
 the 20th century, we may sense we are almost there. We may wonder
 whether the groupings Rich and Poor exist in an organized manner. The
 Rich are identified and organized; the Poor are identified but have little

 Based on their material resources, both groups are armed, unequally, of
 course, and for different reasons. Any form of violence from either side in
 the pursuit of social justice is to be abhorred and will not lead to a solution.
 The pursuit must be elevated to a higher ethical and a deeper spiritual level.
 But what human resources can we rely on to achieve restitution, and to
 elevate the Rich and the Poor to these levels of human potential?

 We could easily familiarize ourselves with the facts, contend and agree
 upon the truth, and understand and reconcile on the steps that were taken
 historically, since we are used to these activities in civil society. We can
 then call upon our spirituality ‘to make things right’ through restitution and
 restorative justice, the best we can, after nonviolent negotiation. The
 outcome will no doubt fall short, as the descendents of those who have
 suffered and/or died in this context will readily acknowledge.

 Third, though no two situations are alike, historically there is good evidence
 that the process can work:

 — Konrad Adenauer, chancellor of West Germany, got the Bundestag to
 agree to provide restitution to the survivors of the Holocaust in terms of
 support for Israel in 1950. He committed Germans to pay about $1.2
 billion to Israel and the Holocaust survivors, though, without
 acknowledging any “responsibility,”

 — In 1970, Chancellor Willy Brandt, took the process a step further,
 absorbing some “moral responsibility” on the part of the Third Reich, and
 Germans in general, for the Holocaust.

 — In the 1980s, the U.S. government made provision for restitution for
 Japanese American citizens who were interred in camps after Pearl

 — In the 1980s, Japan acknowledged some responsibility for the Korean
 “Comfort Women” operation during WWII for the benefit of the Japanese
 soldiers and offered restitution to survivors.

 — Free under Nelson Mandela and Bishop Tutu, in the 1990s, South
 Africa formed a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to enable all South
 Africans to come to terms with the deeds against “coloreds” by the
 departed Apartheid government of South Africa.

 — Beyond the civil rights legislation, restitution for American blacks on the
 past institution of slavery is under consideration and yet to be agreed upon.

 — The North American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, in 1990,
 reclassified Indian remains from “specimen” to human,” to enable
 restitution of human remains (nearly 600,000) to American Indians, which
 is currently underway; much headway has been made with regard to
 restitution of sacred objects, and on restitution of land, negotiations

 — The original inhabitants of New Zealand, the Maoris, have come to
 some satisfactory terms with the British Crown on their claims.

 — The Aborigines of Australia continue to press their claims with the
 government of Australia.

 The above achievements of the spirit represent the recent political mood on
 restitution and restorative justice in the world on matters of diverse origin
 where the human spirit has found itself culpable.

 Fourth, acknowledging the wealth and capabilities of the world in the 21st
 century, and the ability to disseminate through the media the chilling
 disparity in distribution and consumption levels of global produce and
 resources among the different global populations, restorative justice
 between the Rich of the world and the Poor of the world, in terms of
 MMNA, as a form of redress for the past victimization of one part of the
 human enterprise by another part of the history of colonialism, can and
 must be placed on the spiritual/political agenda for resolution.

 The current global opposition and ambivalence to the propriety of
 approaches like “Shock and Awe” to impress consciousness and subdue
 spirituality provides an opening for the forces of spirituality to access the
 table on restitution.

 Firth, spiritually, MMNA will be about and around the identity of
 economic humanity—the economic human identity of the individual. Who
 owns it? Is there a threshold? If so, imposed by whom? Was it a
 self-appointment? A group appointment? Where did the sanction for
 separation on this identity in secular life among human beings come from?
 Did the human spirit authorize it? Was it of necessity? Was it of choice? Is
 it necessary today?

 Sixth, there is a need for a strong pan-poverty movement of the Poor that
 calls for the transfer of those held Poor into economic humanity. The Poor
 are strong in their spiritual human identity and in the process of realizing
 MMNA each group will be enhanced somewhat in what it is lacking. The
 Restorative Justice Compact would negotiate around economic human
 identity to realize these potential enhancements. The Rich will benefit
 spiritually, in ceasing to keep People Poor and become more wholesome;
 the pan-wealthy who set up and own the system must come to understand
 this aspect and commit themselves to the redefinition of economic human
 identity to facilitate MMNA. This type of restorative justice is yet to be
 negotiated into a compact.

 In having inherited or participated in bringing about the current social
 condition, there is group social guilt, which is a powerful political tool in all
 cultures. About 35,200 human beings die each day of hunger and
 malnutrition, and global consciousness (that of the Rich and of the Poor)
 may not play hide and seek on the question of responsibility any more.

 MDC is a good beginning and it can lead to MMNA. In all this, Charity is
 not involved at all. Charity is a great restorative attitude and action as a
 problem gets initially identified, but it is not an appropriate response for
 one like poverty, which historically is created and maintained through one’s
 own complicity in the economic structure, and historically endured by other
 human beings different from the self but aiding the self as a part of one’s
 own system!

 Seventh, when consciousness prevaricates from addressing the economic
 human identity of nearly half the global population, elements of the
 deprived group, in frustration and ill advisedly, turn to acts of violence, as
 in 9/11, expressing their grievances directly to the people of the First
 World. We condemn violence and uphold nonviolence as the only
 approach for resolution of grievances, and make an urgent call for a Global
 Truth and Reconciliation Commission on economic human identity.
 Meeting the Minimum Needs of All (MMNA), through restitution, is the
 proposed stable solution.

 The help facilitate the process of restitution, it is desirable to get First
 World children of the pan-wealthy in developed developing countries to be
 concerned about and involved with the issue of global poverty. It is
 undesirable to get them alienated from their less fortunate pan-poor
 brothers and sisters, through demands on their time, energy and ambition
 to participate in wasteful consumption. Hence the suggestion of July 28,
 2003, to the North American Human Rights Education listserv of 3,000, to
 make issues of global poverty a part of public school human rights

 Thereafter, let the youngsters choose, even as we do.

Fyi info be well
I find this shuffeling difficlut to believe
I am curious Jewish is not a racial or an ethnic catagory at this .gov
web site and all of the other ethnicity's are obviously non "white",
Jews and Hispanics (notably Cubans) are considered Honorary
whites yet numbers exist for Hispanics but not Jewish Americans.
Which country's receive the most "foreign and" and are not counted
among the citizens and identified numerically or otherwise as to there
portion of the total population.

Why is this.

The site below continues in the same tregectory except an alternative
polarity now a Jewish .org is defining themselves as white and
condemning Blacks as NAZI!
While it is America that now like Israel  is historically in sync with
Hitler with  so called Pre-emptive strikes & race based nationalism.
racial profiling ect.
Gee Whiz Why isn't Israel multy cultural & democract like America?

Why do we spend so much time and money on weapons instead
 of schools & health care for the so called Palestinians?

Without that focus it is business as usual slow and not so slow
 motion genocide ethnic clensing...

These guys are very strange.
