We must first of all commit ourselves to respect our life and ourselves, in order to achieve a correct psycho-physical balance and a decorous life according to the inalienable principles of freedom, solidarity, justice and respect for others. It is right to commit, as far as possible, to guarantee to everyone in the world the respect for life and the research for the best quality in every moment and, therefore, a serene childhood, adolescence and maturity, by favouring health, essential needs, education, work, home, safety, by living our third age in a dignified and respected way, all this in good social and environmental conditions, until a well assisted natural death. It is a duty to recognize the equality of genders, of all the sexual tendencies and to fully respect minors. The commitment to fight the trafficking of human beings and their enslavement, as well as the prohibition of dangerous experiments of any kind on people and even more the trade of organs, is overwhelming. It is also a duty to fight any form of degrading and damaging attitude toward psycho-physical integrity, particularly with regard to women, for example with infibulation and clitoral resection, but also to men with castration. We must also commit ourselves to the abolition of the death penalty in whatever way it is performed, first of all the indescribable system of stoning and, again, the abolition of torture and, in general, of every form of harassment.

3rd PEACE AND CIVIL COEXISTENCE
Every citizen has the duty to guarantee at local and universal level THE PEACE AND CIVIL COEXISTENCE, BY STRUGGLING AGAINST EVERY FORM OF VIOLENCE, TERRORISM, ORGANIZED CRIME AND WAR. It is important to commit ourselves in order to prevent and stop any war from its beginning, wars between states or ethnic groups, religious groups, political movements, etc. unless it is a form of defence against aggression or interventions to support the populations victims of violence and abuses by dictatorships that do not respect the fundamental human and peoples’ rights. We should commit ourselves to guarantee peace against all forms of terrorism, and to prohibit the military involvement of unarmed civilians, their mass arrest, their killing in retaliation. It is also right to prohibit the use of any weapon of mass destruction, in particular of atomic weapons, cluster bombs, mines, chemical weapons and gases and to commit for the physical and human respect of prisoners. It is right to prevent and stop any ethnic genocides in whatever form it may be carried out: wars, forced exodus, deprivation of the essential forms of survival and health. It is also a duty to strenuously fight against all forms of organized crime.

Every citizen has the duty to guarantee at local and universal level CORRECT AND IMPARTIAL EDUCATION AND INFORMATION FOR EVERYONE AND FREE SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL RESEARCH, WHOSE APPLICATIONS ARE ONLY AIMED AT INCREASING THE QUALITY OF LIFE.

It is also important to commit ourselves so that life can be lived in a healthy and safe environment, with initiatives and places suitable for promoting cultural, sport, leisure activities, as well as facilities for childcare, education, health, elderly people, services for public hygiene, waste collection and treatment, water supply, electricity, transport, interpersonal and mass media and any other primary needs. It is a duty to ensure that the scientific achievements and their technological applications are used according to the ethical principles that must be prioritized with respect to any other motivation and, in any case, must be used only to promote a better quality of life and never for the socalled factories of death (war-related applications).
5th JUSTICE and EQUITY
Every citizen has the duty to guarantee at local and universal level FAIR AND JOINT JUSTICE, RESPECTFUL OF THE FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS OF MAN AND PEOPLE.

In these cases it is necessary to encourage the reunification with their families, the integration in the countries of arrival and their correct distribution in the hosting country and/or the free transfer to other States upon their request. It is desirable to promote a fair distribution to all peoples and in particular to people who lack essential natural resources and, above all, drinking water, just as it is a duty to fight productive, agricultural, commercial monopolies and, in particular, the monopoly of drugs for treating endemic epidemics.
8th FREEDOM of CULTURE and RELIGION
Every citizen has the duty to guarantee at local and universal level THE RESPECT FOR ALL CULTURES, RELIGIONS AND SPIRITUAL MOVEMENTS WHOSE PRINCIPLES ARE NOT IN CONTRAST WITH THE FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN AND PEOPLES’ RIGHTS.

We must commit to plan the development of environmental sustainability both for the present and the future generations and to protect every form of animal and vegetable life. We must commit to fulfil the energy needs with safe and environmentally friendly systems that respect the quality of life and the environment as much as possible. It is a duty to prevent and fight against human activities that upset the natural balance of the earth.

10th PROTECTION of the EARTH and of the SPACE
Every citizen has the duty to guarantee at local and universal level THE INTEGRITY OF THE EARTH, OF THE STRATOSPHERE AND OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM FROM EVERY FORM OF POLLUTION AND NUCLEAR IMPLOSION. We must work to ensure the universal integrity and the protection of life on our planet and of the solar system endangered by various factors but in particular by the craziness of the military arsenals owned by over 190 national states with powerful and countless new generation and conventional, chemical, bacteriological weapons, and above all with many thousands of powerful nuclear warheads that could cause the implosion of the planet, destroy it, and destabilize the solar system. It is therefore a duty to ensure, for our safety as world citizens, a progressive demilitarization of the planet, and in particular the urgent dismantling of nuclear warheads. We must also avoid any form of global, stratosphere and space pollution due to the residues of missiles, space stations, wastes of all kinds from space missions, and tens of thousands of artificial satellites orbiting the earth that are more and more out of control.
