The Youth Federation is a think-tank founded in 1988 which promotes establishing a
world constitution and world federation to defend humanity's basic international human
rights and to protect and save the fragile ecology of Planet Earth.
The Youth Federation is based in Santa Cruz, California and has been promoting world
citizenship across the U.S and world since 1988. We organize events, rallies, lectures,
concerts and play an active role in creating a better world for the future. The Youth
Federation was inspired by Garry Davis, the leader of the world citizen movement and founder of
the World Government of World Citizens (www.worldgovernment.org).
The Youth Federation was also
inspired by the teachings of Albert Einstein, who was asked on his deathbed what could be done
to save humanity from nuclear annihilation. His reply was that he couldn't do anything for he was
about to die, but what needs to be done to save the human race is that the youth from all nations of
the world need to form a world government to rule in peace and justice.
The Youth Federation is a think-tank to promote the ideas of world citizenship and
world federation. We have also taken on the goal of helping to comprehensively end the federal
prohibition of Cannabis hemp for industrial, medical, nutritional, and personal use for adults
The Youth Federation realizes humanity needs a world constitution and world federation so that
humans can govern themselves internationally. The present United Nations is of a confederate
structure. Confederations have three powers of their political organization from which they
can operate: 1) treaties 2) wars and 3) embargoes. The Continental Congress was a confederation
composed of thirteen colonies each with their own language and currency. Between the separate,
sovereign thirteen colonies there was no law governing them- just anarchy. The colonies had
separate economies and languages. The present United Nations is also of confederate
structure. It can enact treaties, wars and embargoes as its means to govern its 191 member
nations. However, the United Nations has no legal power to execute law upon the individual.
It's World Court takes mostly nations to court and has hardly any legal teeth to enforce its
rulings. Moreover, the people of the world are generally left out of the picture and have no
representation and decision-making power under the United Nations.
A federation is a political organization with three powers from which it operates:
1) legislative 2) executive and 3) judicial power. These three powers are enforced upon the
individual- the lowest common denominator of society- under a federation.
