We, the human species of this planet,
given that everything we currently are and
hold dear to us is contained on this one small planet,
do pledge to not be dicks to each other as
much as possible. And if we fuck up, we'll admit
it and apologize.

Under god. Thumbsup

(not sure about that last line, though)

What happened to your pledge of non-participation?

Ohmy

I raised my hand, but my other one was behind my back with crossed fingers.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

RE: Pledge of Allegiance.
I'm not very versed in allegiances, are there specific requirements? Maximum length, certain attributes, etc?

Simple:

Don't Be A Dick.

.....or I guess in this case:

I Pledge Not To Be A Dick.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Yeah, I totally stole your line stark, sorry bout that.

RE: Pledge of Allegiance.
Okay. This would be my first draft.

I have been thinking lately (uh oh, more thinking Wink ) that we humans are absolutely horrible at getting ourselves together. We are capable of so much more than we are right now and it could all be lost very easily. We are still a sort of dark ages. We have the potential to be so much more and to advance ourselves, but losers (like one's who won't let women drive because it'll make people gay, or the chemical warfares) are bringing us down.

I wasn't sure what sort of political power to pledge in this one because I think we haven't created an appropriate system yet… but it's a start.

Carl Sagan's pale blue dot had an influence, I tried to keep the future in mind considering this is a global allegiance, also there is the fact we can't stay on Earth forever (but she's our home Heart ).



As citizens from our beloved Earth
We, humankind, pledge allegiance to each other as united people
To work together as peaceful as possible
To treat each other with kindness regardless of ethnicity, gender or nonreligious/religious affiliation
To uphold safety, happiness and wellbeing for now and future endeavours
Which we anticipate to achieve through exploration and survival of our species
To preserve ourselves and our home in our best possible known way



I have to sleep on it though.

I can't really see all the little 2nd Graders, lined up next to their desks, with their little hands over their hearts, in Sister Mary Quite Contrary's class...saying in their little voices
"Don't be a dick".... but it sure would be fun to propose, just to see the look on their faces.

Yup I agree, tbh.

But I do like a vision statement if is written well.
It can unite, inspire, give direction, demonstrate leadership etc. if it's well communicated and achievable.

Typical shitty vision statement says "We are here to make money blah blah..."

Good ones:
The SG National Pledge
Asian Development Bank: "Eradicating Poverty in Asia"
JFK: "We will put a man on the moon and return them safely (before the Russians do).

Now that I can get behind!
