The Taiwan Model - A Charter for Permanent Peace Urgently Needed in Asia – A Declaration

Preface

  Clearly the world urgently needs a peace system: 2019/9/14 two major Saudi Arabian oil fields were attacked, and the global daily supply of oil was suddenly short of 5.7 million barrels, giving rise to the highest ever one-day hike in oil prices. In The National Interest said "5 Places World War III Could Start in 2018", and Taiwan ranked second among five of these potential war zones. Over the last few years, the Chinese military aircraft and warships have been constantly patrolling around Taiwan; more than 2,500 missiles are targeted at the island; troops are massed in nearby Fujian Province; spy satellites are deployed to monitor Taiwan 24/7; countless light armed groups are ready to deploy to Taiwan. In order to control information and spread the propaganda about China or the CCP, the Chinese government also bought media in Taiwan. The military, education and industrial sections as well as some 12,000 temples are being infiltrated with the Chinese spies and propaganda. If war broke out, Taiwan’s 50% share of the global market for electronic wafers and the country’s democratic system will be threatened. In the face of such constant threats and disturbances, peace is pertinent and must be permanent, otherwise it is no more than a temporary cease-fire

  Given that ultimately mankind has only two choices: peace and destruction. In the wake of constant nuclear weapons development, once war erupts, everything in the world will be turned into ashes. Therefore, it clearly indicates that peace is life, ultimate truth and the only way forward. To this end, the UN was established in 1945 to replace 1920’sthe League of Nationsin preventing the outbreak of war. However, there has been little improvement over the past ten decades, even with the absolute law of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (§53) onethnic cleansingwar crimesandcrimes against humanity」: "Not using the veto is not possible." Therefore, we have integrated the philosophy, ideas and legal wisdom of "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” (the whole world is one single family: India), and ”Global Unity” (China), with the West’s “One World, One Principality – the Human Family” to provide a peace system that nations can utilize both independently and permanently;

  Given that ultimately China also has only two choices:either to split into independent states, or peacefully evolve into a Chinese federation with 33 systems. History shows that all wars will eventually return to a domestic "institutional performance" battlefield, where systems will be valued as good or bad, and nations will either be defeated or victorious. When a nation fails, it proves that broad-based democracy (inclusive political institutions/inclusive institutions) is superior to oppressive autocracy(extractive political institution/extractive institution)In fact, dictatorship and democracy are inherently incompatible with each other. The ongoing protests in Hong Kong has clearly shown the ineffectiveness of China’s one country, two systems. Therefore, for the sake of permanent peace for mankind and to end the totalitarian government in China by promoting federalism, the best approach is to support Taiwan’s model of a permanent peace charter, as a common cause of mankind;

  Given that Taiwan always had only two paths: permanent democracy or permanent slavery:History has shown that "non-violent civil disobedience" movements by the people against the nation are the most effective and practicable method for ending an authoritarian dictatorship. Taiwan is the only political entity that is shaped by geography, history, language and culture that allows more than 10 million people, each year to cross the Taiwan Strait to visit relatives, conduct business and tour. Therefore, as long as democratic countries support Taiwan’s model for a Permanent Peace Charter, pro-communist forces on the island will not be able to cause any disturbances or pose any threat. The Permanent Peace Charter will naturally encourage the Chinese people to resist the CCP and peacefully evolve China into a federal republic. This is the destiny of Taiwan: to save itself and the world, and to avoid being "at the world’s mercy".

  The permanent peace strategy’s origin is: (1) “He drew a circle that shut me out-Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout. But love and I had the wit to win: We drew a circle and took him In!” (2) "The enemy of my enemy is my ally [friend]. " The biggest enemy of the CCP is its people, who are essential partners for anti-Communist movements. (3) "Do not rely on one who offers you promises; count only on things you can do by yourself." The Constitution is right and the general will of the people, and constitutional power is always with you. (4) "Do not trust anyone in politics. It is necessary to use the chain of the Constitution to restrain people from carrying out bad deeds" (Thomas Jefferson).

       Now we are based on the UN global governance system:At the super-national (international organization), national (US, China, Japan, Russia) and sub-national (Hong Kong, Tibet, Xinjiang, province, state...) levels, the charter is the basis for permanent peace and development, establishing constitutional standards for the 249 political entities(including 193 UN member nations). It is a long-lasting operation based on a “from the bottom-up” approach, and inside and outside the system. Every individual has a final say on their destination, which leads to the universal adoption and effective observance of the Charter for Permanent Peace that reveals the ultimate truth and destiny of the humanity

(Editor's note: Our mode is different from the top-down approach of the UN.)

Basic Concepts behind the Charter for Permanent Peace (Subjective thinking)

1. Permanent Peace initiative: Integrate the laws of all nations, invite judges to participate in global justice and promote constitutional standards (ISO).

2. Sustainable Development initiative: Everyone is the master of the world, working for global unity and promoting governmental standards (ISO).

28 Basic Propositions for Permanent Peace:(Basic Principles for Nation-building)[1]

Conclusion

  This Charter (abbreviated as the 228 Charter) is a versatile strategic constitutional tool for any national or political entity. Every provision of the Constitution offers necessary and sufficient conditions for permanent peace and development; all articles serve to guarantee human rights and as an amulet for the people. However, it still needs necessary amendments to become the universal international standard for a permanent peace constitution (ISO). Therefore, any kind of suggestions and recommendations from global legal experts and judges are pertinent and necessary.。

  Considering the broad scope of permanent peace, only when international organizations and the national security organs of democratic countries - the legislature or other influential people - lend their support, will the butterfly effect be triggered, attracting large numbers of world citizens to bravely follow the Taiwan’s path of permanent peace without any bloodshed. Taiwan will break through its domestic and external barriers to peacefully change the totalitarian systems and eventually eliminate nuclear-backed autocracies.

  To this end, the more than 4 billion people in Taiwan and Asia 40 living under the threat of dictatorship will lose only their iron curtains and chains, violence and lies, while others will suffer no loss, instead steadily leading the way to permanent peace and development in Asia, finding self-realization and living in security, happiness and good fortune for generations to come.
