The sole aim of world citizen voters has to be sustainability: sustainability of clean water, air and soil; sustainability of chemical-free food and farms; sustainability of our planet, free from fossil fuels; sustainability of fairness for the systemic poor, underprivileged, unprotected and persecuted groups; sustainability of access to affordable education, free from religious, corporate or militaristic bias; economic sustainability free from war-based pork, voluntary wars and banker bailouts; sustainability of international law; sustainability of free speech and a free press, and the sustainability of civility, in order to create a more perfect union and avoid the trap of division set for us.

Our dual-party system of control ensures the obstruction of such norms and is hence unsustainable by design.
