As a citizen of the world...
I BELIEVE in the dignity of all
humanity, that each person is a being of supreme worth.
I BELIEVE in the wholeness of the human race, undivided
by economic, cultural, racial, sexual or national
I BELIEVE in the stewardship of life and resources to
the end that all may mutually benefit from the earth's
bounty and that no person may have to go without food or
I BELIEVE in the primacy of human relationships as a
person committed and responsible to other persons,
regardless of their economic status, race, creed or
I BELIEVE in the global community, interdependent and
mutually responsible for our physical and social
I BELIEVE that we are One World and affirm that I am a
citizen of this world. My allegiance to it and its
people, my brothers and sisters, is primary over all
other political entities.
I AM, therefore, committed to the promotion and care of
the whole of humanity without partiality or prejudice
and with such resources as I have at my command, both
within and without.
I HEREWITH AFFIRM that I wish, as much as I possibly
can, to base my actions on my beliefs and thus
contribute to a world where justice and compassion rule
and where greed and hatred are diminished.
