As outlined on www.PeopleNow.org:


The United States and all the countries of the world have agreed to implement the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their Targets. Developed countries, including the U.S., have agreed to help undeveloped countries implement the UN SDGs and targets.


PeopleNow.org is developing the following for use by the public and private sectors:

 

    The Universal Strategic Plan to Prepare Target Action Plans for All UN SDG Targets And Make Preparations for Their Implementation.

 

    Forty-three UN SDG Target Action Plans (TAPs), to implement the more urgent SDG Targets in the most effective and efficient ways possible. They cover about one third of the SDG Targets. Many of these TAPs need some work and changes will routinely need to be made to them as they are implemented and situations change


These plans, which were prepared primarily for the U.S. Federal government, will be replicated for use in parallel plans in cities, counties, states, other nations, the UN and its related organizations. Lessons learned, corrections and suggestions from the replicated plans will be fed back into the Federal Government plans.


Each significant paragraph of every TAP and USP document is uniquely numbered making it easier to recommend changes and edit. Attachment A of the Common Agenda provides a Glossary of Terms and Description of the Standard Numbering System for UN SDG Targets (TAPS and Universal Strategic Plan (USP) documents.


Implementing the UN SDG and their targets will ultimately end nuclear weapons, wars, violence, conflicts, poverty, hunger, inequalities, combat climate change, etc. and provide clean water, nutritious food, decent housing, quality health care, full employment at guaranteed living wages, clean energy, equal justice for all and much more for everyone all over the world.


Millions of people and thousands of organizations in the public and private sectors all over the world are working on change and reform but are not collaborating and working together from a common strategy and plans.


In his book, The Sane Society, Eric Fromm states: "Change must be a simultaneous change in economic, education, political and cultural spheres. Changes restricted to one sphere are destructive of every change." This implies that we must collaborate and work together from a common strategy and common set of plans and adjust our planning as situations change.

Implementation of this plan by the public and private sectors will resolve all the significant problems of the world including:

 

   Permanently disable all nuclear weapons, end all wars, air and drone strikes, conflicts, occupations, use of-force, disarm, demilitarize, convert the Military-Industrial Complex (MIC) to Co-ops, etc..

 

   Put everyone possible to work at living guaranteed wages and provide funding food, land, materials, equipments, etc. to get everyone in the world self-sufficient as rapidly as possible, combat global warming/climate change, etc.

 

   Show where the up front surge funding and donations will come from to accomplish all this work, implement the SDG TAPs, fund the government, eliminate excessive wealth and income inequalities, etc.

 

   Ensure we have an enforced rule of law, everyone has their guaranteed human rights and civil liberties and equal justice for all, reform the criminal justice system, end mass incarceration, etc.

 

45     Implement UN SDG TAPs and TAs and USP documents as rapidly as possible in a logical, orderly, holistic fashion using whatever procedures are necessary e.g. emergency injunctions.

 

45.1  TAP18: Permanently End the Use of all Nuclear Weapons and End All Wars, Air and Drone Strikes, Conflicts, Occupations, Use of-Force, Violence, Sanctions, Military Alliances and Empire Building. Sincerely Apologize, Pay Reparations and Make Donations to Countries Harmed by the U.S. Turnover Most Overseas Bases and Facilities and Assign Personnel to the UN Peacekeepers and Interpol. Bring all Troops, Offensive Weapons and Contractors Home. Settle all Disputes and Conflicts by Pacific Means

 

45.1.1    USP Document #69 Proof that all Wars, Use of Force, Nuclear and Other Offensive Weapons, Violence, and the Doctrine of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) Are All Illegal Under International Law. This law includes in particular the Kellogg-Briand Pact of 1928, currently effective international law, in which the U.S. and many other countries:

 

45.1.1.1 Solemnly declared that “they condemn recourse to war for the solution of international controversies, and renounce it, as an instrument of national policy”

 

45.1.1.2 Agreed “that the settlement or solution of all disputes or conflicts of whatever nature or of whatever origin they may be, which may arise among them, shall never be sought except by pacific means." This means:

 

45.1.1.2.1   If anyone fires a nuclear weapon at any country that country cannot legally fire a nuclear weapon back because that would not be pacific (peaceful). Also, it would probably kill many children and women which is also illegal under the Geneva Convention and other international law.

 

45.1.1.2.2   That sanctions are illegal.

 

45.2  TAP19 Permanently Disarm, Demilitarize, Phase Out the Military and All Offensive Weapons, Ships and Aircraft, Strengthen State not National Guards and the Coast Guard and Convert Much of the Military-Industrial-Complex into Co-ops that will Provide and Implement Products for use for Peaceful, Sustainable Purposes including in particular for TAPS 41 and 25 below

 

45.3  TAP20 Reform, Strengthen, Fully-Fund and Support the United Nations, its Related Organizations and the Rapid Implementation of the UN SDGs. Do Not Make the UN a World Government but Give the UN, World Court, ICC, Interpol, etc. the Authority and Means to Form a Global Law Enforcement System, Open Satellite Offices, Rapidly Make and Enforce International Laws and Help Settle All Conflicts and Disputes by Pacific Means.

 

        Implementing TAPs 18, 19 and 20 will provide:

 

45.3.1    A workforce of millions of disciplined, well-educated and trained workers, engineers in all disciplines, planners, estimators, supervisors, police officers to supplement local government, businesses, etc.

 

45.3.2    Numerous Co-ops to manufacture and provide expertise to install the systems, materials and goods to help people become self-sufficient and combat global warming.

 

45.3.3    Hundreds of transport ships and aircraft and their crews loaned/turned over to UN and local governments to deliver needs and necessities for a decent life for everyone, everywhere in the world to become are self sufficient.

 

45.3.4    Additional UN Peacekeepers and Interpol police officers and UN security personnel to protect Peacekeepers

 

45.3.5    Up to approximately $1 trillion of up-front, surge funding and donated food, shelters, healthcare, materials etc.

 

45.4  TAP1 As rapidly as possible, put everyone in the world, including refugees, immigrants, prisoners, etc. to work at meaningful, decent work at guaranteed living wages primarily implementing:

 

45.4.1    TAP41 Eradicate all poverty. Ensure everyone has all the needs and necessities for a decent life, a guaranteed, basic, living income and the wherewithal to become self-sufficient until they are and

 

45.4.2    TAP25 Reduce the rate and degree of global warming and climate change and mitigate their adverse effects. Speed up and improve recovery, rebuilding, hardening and funding efforts against global warming/climate change for the Gulf Coast, the Caribbean and ultimately the World

 

45.4.3    This will be accomplished by implementing the following TAPs:

 

45.4.3.1 TAP2 End hunger and ensure access by all people to safe, nutritious and sufficient food.

 

45.4.3.2 TAP42 Provide universal and equitable access to safe drinking water for all as rapidly as possible.

 

45.4.3.3 TAP6 Ensure Decent, Affordable, Accessible, Resilient, Sustainable Housing for All

 

45.4.3.4 TAP43 Provide adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all and end open defecation, paying special attention to the needs of women and girls and those in vulnerable situations

 

45.4.3.5 TAP3 Provide universal, quality, comprehensive healthcare for all with doctors, nurses, healthcare officials, etc. paid guaranteed living wages instead of doctors billing for each visit, treatment, operation, hospital stay, pill, etc. This will save billions of dollars each year.

 

45.4.3.6 TAP44 Ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services and increase substantially the share of renewable energy.         

 

45.4.3.7 TAP5 Provide Quality Child Care, Pre-K Through a College Education and Vocational, Job Readiness and Literacy Training for All for Life.

 

45.4.3.8 TAP7 Provide safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems for all including building a comprehensive, worldwide, rail-based/maglev network, transportation system integrated with local systems.

 

45.4.3.9 TAP10 Provide publicly supported universal, internet access for everyone in particular to deliver universal life-time education and vocational training to everyone.

 

45.4.3.10    TAP9 Repair, modernize, strengthen and expand infrastructure to combat global warming/climate change and accommodate future generations.

 

45.4.4    The above TAPs in Section 45.4.3 will be implemented:

 

45.4.4.1 By local people organized in Co-ops and small businesses:

 

45.4.4.2 Using extensive donations of expertise, food, medical supplies, equipment, materials, arable land, up-front surge funding, etc. from governments, other Co-ops, individual corporations, non-government organizations and individuals;

 

45.4.4.3 With the locations of all individuals, communities and Co-ops in need, what is needed and organizations providing and delivering specific needs, all organized by nine digit zip-code addresses as outlined in the: Global Matrix Network; and,

 

45.4.5    In particular doing things that both provide the needs and necessities for a decent life and combat global warming for example:

 

    45.4.5.1 Plant vegetables, beans, rice, fruits, berries, herbs, peanuts, bushes, vines, fruit trees, foliage, etc. (This will both provide nutritious food and decrease atmospheric carbon dioxide).

 

    45.4.5.2 Install solar panels, windmills, weatherise and insulate homes, install energy efficient appliances, build train/maglev transport systems, repair, modernize and strength the infrastructure, etc.

 

    45.4.5.3 Reduce and ultimately end the need for fossil fuels.

 

45.4.6    As these TAPs are implemented, within a few months everyone will rapidly become self-sufficient and within a few years global warming will be mitigated and as Soros said this will “be far more effective than spending the same amount over several years.”

 

Section 45.5 through 45.6.2.2 implementation will provide the fund and donation sources to implement the SDG TAPs and eliminate excessive wealth and income in equalities.

 

45.5  The estimated cost/value of the up-front surge funding and donations will probably be over $1 trillion to rebuild and harden the U.S. Gulf Coast and the Caribbean. The estimated cost to implement the UN SDG TAPs worldwide and could be as high as $700 billion per month depending upon how fast the funds and donations can be provided and used wisely. This will decrease rapidly as individuals, families and communities become self-sufficient and total cost will be less the faster this is accomplished. Funds are readily available to pay for all this.

 

45.5.1    Total net worth of the U.S. is roughly $55 trillion and the world $241 trillion. This net worth is concentrated in the very large corporations/companies and in the 1%.

 

45.5.2    The top 1 percent of families now have about the same amount of net assets as the bottom 90 percent, while 20 individuals have as much net assets as the bottom half. Forty percent of families in the US have zero or negative wealth, meaning their debts are greater than their assets. It is dumb and immoral for them to have to pay any taxes. Some of the wealthiest 0.1 percent of the population buy elections, bribe public servants and control much of the government.

 

45.5.3    The 2000 largest corporations/companies in the world have a total $169 trillion in assets in 2017 according to the Forbes 2000. Of the 2000, 565 corporations/companies are in the U.S. and have $40 trillion in assets. Of the 565, there are 25 large banks and financial institutions which have $19.1 trillion in assets. Note that the financial industry has almost as many assets as all the other large industries in the U.S. - defense, housing, food, cable, internet, movie, etc., combined and only 4.4% of the number of corporations.

 

45.5.4    The Problem of the Twentieth Century: Poverty in the Midst of Plenty explains how Beecher "businessmen" have kept unemployment, prices, profits and executive salaries high by paying low wages and laying off employees. This has kept 3 billion people in the world in poverty and debt and provides evermore unemployed workers willing to work for even lower wages

 

45.6  TAP31 Provide net asset and income equality within and among countries and provide funds and donations to rapidly implement the UN SDG TAPs in the U.S. and in developing countries, end deficit spending, pay down the national debt and end recessions and economic collapses forever. In particular implement:                

 

45.6.1    TAP32: Reform taxation. Eliminate very regressive sales taxes and all other taxes except for one - a progressive property tax on all the net assets including natural resources and the land of all individuals, corporations, businesses and other entities with more than $500 thousand in net assets. Provide generous tax deductions based on worthiness of the charitable contributions of the taxpayer. Place limits on total income and net assets. Simplify all tax codes and remove all loopholes. This will jumpstart the economy, decrease the wealth divide and help provide the necessities of life to billions of people. The $500 thousand as the proposed threshold for taxes is approximate and should be carefully calculated and could be different for companies and individuals

 

45.6.2    TAP22 Reform financial system. Carefully vacate as null and void the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, Nationalize the Federal Reserve, Convert Federal Reserve District Banks into Public National District Banks and large private banks into a National Bank and National State, City and Community Public Banks. Congress print and appropriate U.S. currency and exchange for Federal Reserve Notes at a rate based on how Federal Reserve Notes were earned and are planned to be used.

 

45.6.2.1 Despite the fact that our Constitution says that the Congress will Coin (produce) and appropriate all money, the Federal Reserve has originated and produced and loaned trillions of dollars at zero and other very low rates to the large banks and these banks, aided by the Federal Reserve, have produced trillions of dollars more with "fractional banking" which they lend to other large banks and corporations at very low rate and consumers at mostly usury rates.

 

45.6.2.2 No one really needs over say $20 million in total net assets. More than that is mostly greed. We must collectively determine limits on total net worth - funds, arable land, resource, income, etc. that individuals, corporations and other entities may own

 

Sections 45.7 through 45.12's implementation will ensure we have an enforced rule of law, a reformed criminal justice system, no mass imprisonments and guaranteed human rights and civil liberties for all

 

45.7  TAP28 Promote and have an enforced rule of law at the national and international levels.

 

45.8  TAP27 Ensure That All Human Rights and Civil Liberties Are Respected, Observed and Protected for All Humankind and Ensure Equal Access to Justice for All in particular human rights and civil liberties guaranteed by:                    

 

45.8.1    The Constitution and its Bill of Rights.

 

45.8.2    The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in its Articles 22-27 provide the right to social security; the right to work; the right to equal pay for equal work; the right to rest and leisure; the right to a standard-of-living adequate for health and well-being; the right to education; and the right to participate in the cultural life of the community.

 

45.8.2.1 Note: By adopting the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, the United Nations General Assembly has finally stood up to the United States, England, France, Germany, etc. They should now also make the Universal Declaration of Human Rights mandatory and be provided the resources and authority to enforce it all over the world.

 

45.9  TAP29 End massive incarcerations, humanely reform the criminal justice system and prisons using timely restitution, truth and reconciliation, restorative justice, rehabilitation and eliminate punishment for all crimes and confinement for non-violent crimes described at www.HumaneJustice.org

 

45.10     TAP30 Privately Investigate, Negotiate With and If Necessary, Prosecute Alleged Lawbreakers with Timely Care and Restitution for Victims, Rehabilitation for Lawbreakers and Reconciliation and Restorative Justice Opportunities for Both described at www.HumaneProsecutions.org

 

45.10.1      These procedures must be conducted rapidly and in “absentia” if necessary. Currently investigations and prosecutions take too long. For example the former Bosnian Serb leader was convicted of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity 21 years after he led a campaign of terror against civilians that included the slaughter of 8,000 Bosnian Muslims at Srebrenica in 1995 and the nearly four-year siege of Sarajevo.

 

45.11     TAP27.4.11 End the War on Drugs, Decriminalize the Use of all Drugs, Release Non-Violent Prisoners and Provide Treatment as Needed. Pay Reparations to Those Prosecuted Under Draconian Laws.

 

45.12     TAP35 Plan to Prioritize Using New Thinking and Doing Holistically, Engaging and Mobilizing New Voices and Constituencies, Strengthening Capacity of and Collaboration Among Organizations and Individuals Engaged in Progressive Issues. Ensure that the public and private sectors are informed and educated about the importance of this and encouraged to use it.

 

45.13     TAP13 Vacate as Null and Void, Set Aside, Repeal, Replace or Amend All or Portions Of Unconstitutional, Unjust and/or Injurious Laws and Repair the Damages Caused by these Laws. This will reinstate Glass-Steagall, other finance regulations, etc.

 

45.14     TAP14 Vacate Citizens United and Scores of Other Unconstitutional Court Rulings without Amending the Constitution and Repair the Damages Caused by these Rulings. This will reinstate all election financing/donation control legislation.

 

45.15     TAP15 Provide Humane, Constitutional Immigration Laws and Practices Considering that the U. S. Purchased 2/3rds of Mexico for $20 million in 1848 at Gun Point.

 

45.16     TAP12 Reform and Reorganize Congress and the Executive Department by Function and as Necessary to Have an Effective, Efficient Government.

 

45.17     TAP21 Require Renewable Federal Charters and Licenses for Large Corporations and Companies, Eliminate Corporate Executives Control Over Public Servants. Convert Portions of Large Corporations/Companies into Co-ops

 

45.18     TAP11 Ensure Independent, Honest and Accurate Media Not under Corporate Executives’ Control is Available for All Without “Censorship.”

 

45.19     TAP16 Make Elections about Each Candidate’s Character, Performance, Experience and Position on Issues/Actions, Allow Very Limited Campaign Contributions from Citizens Only and Reform Elections.

 

45.20     TAP17 Vacate as null-and-void all free trade agreements, replace them with fair trade agreements on a case-by-case basis and end “fast track.”

 

45.21     TAP34 Develop and Implement Parallel Movements and Plans for Cities, Counties, States, Other Nations and the United Nations that Replicate Applicable Parts of the Plan to Implement the SDG TAPS beginning with Washington D.C. This will expand this work countrywide and globally

 

45.22     Implement all other and new TAPs and TAs as rapidly as possible as they are developed.
