A New World Picture

12 points about the development of mankind

In the first volume of Martinus’ main work Livets Bog (The Book of Life) he describes in Chapter 4 an international world kingdom in the making. He lists 12 points on which the terrestrial human energy of development will be focussed during the gradual creation of the future world society.

  1. The victory of unselfishness over selfishness in all its forms. (The victory of common interest over private interest).
  2. The creation of an international, democratic world government.
  3. The disarmament of all countries for the benefit of the establishment of an international, impartial, world police force.
  4. The development of an international, undisguised, not secret, supreme system of law and justice, represented by science’s most eminent beings in spiritual as well as in material fields, who would be qualified to know the difference between "abnormal actions" and "crimes", knowing the course of evolution and life’s eternal laws and being thereby a guarantee for absolute right and justice for everything and everyone.
  5. The abolition of the private possession of natural resources in favour of their appropriation by the world state.
  6. The abolition of money in favour of the establishment of an individual’s personally rendered work as the only denomination, and the receipt for it as their only means of payment.
  7. The establishment of a common fund for childhood, old age and illness for the world state based on deductions from the work receipts.
  8. The employment of machines for shortening material working hours in favour of study days and spiritual research.
  9. The abolition of all bloodshed and policies of aggression.
  10. The abolition of torture and capital punishment in favour of expert arrangements for internment and education.
  11. The development of vegetarian food, of health, of the care of the body, and of healthy, light housing conditions.
  12. The development of spiritual freedom, tolerance, humaneness and love for all living beings, for people and animals, for plants and minerals.
