Voices of Humanity - Order out of Chaos
finding our common humanity across
all national, religious and cultural boundaries

Welcome to the ongoing Order out of Chaos discussion. Facebook Sign-in Use the Facebook button to sign up and sign back in anytime or click the Join button on the left of the screen. You'll fill out a short form that will become your online profile.

When you have signed up, begin by posting a “candidate” message addressed to Dr. Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Executive Director of UN Women. Your message will be read and rated by others. All ideas are good ideas! And be sure to rate messages written by your co-conspirators for human unity - use the green and orange rating boxes.

At the new moon on International Women's Day, March 8, 2016, the winning messages, from the women, from the men, from youth, middle-aged, seniors and humanity-as-one will be hand-delivered to Dr. Mlambo-Ngcuka. The discussion will continue and at the new moon each month, the highest rated messages from these six Voices of Humanity will be sent to Dr. Mlambo-Ngcuka. We know we can get the messages on her desk, and with enough participants, expect she will be interested to read and reply.

Feel free to set your own topic when you write. A gender related topic is appropriate for the current round of the Order out of Chaos discussion, but it is OK to write about something else. Possibilities: the global roles of women and men, violence against women, Convention on the Elimination of all Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), expanding the scope of the Women's Movement, how to bring in the men, and so forth. You might ask Dr Mlambo-Ngcuka a question, or encourage her. The field is wide open. If you have any thoughts about steps we can take towards human unity, please share!

About Voices of Humanity

Voices of Humanity (VoH) is a project of Collective Communication, Inc. (CCI), a California non-profit. Roger Eaton as President of CCI is the project leader. See below for the complete list of supporting organizations.

The mission of the VoH project is to build an online community that will heal the world, bringing order out of chaos.

The online VoH community has three components:

  • First is the "Order out of Chaos" discussion which brings all participants together across group lines to give a voice to the genders and generations, and to humanity-as-one.
     
  • Second there is a group forum facility. Messages posted at a particular group are shared only within the group.
     
  • And third, there are social media facilities for individual participation, including a “wall” and the ability to “follow” and "invite" people. There is also a Global Town Square group that everyone automatically belongs to. As of January, 2016, Global Town Square has about 1200 members.

The Voice of Women and the Voice of Men build gender equality into the foundations of the Voices of Humanity online community. While the aim of the project as a whole is to bring humanity together, the fact that gender equality is built in to the process is expected to make the project of special interest to the global women’s movement. The Board of CCI is looking to bring in women from around the world to take the lead on the Voices of Humanity project with the election of a woman as President of CCI by International Day of Peace (September 21) 2016.

About Order out of Chaos

The Order out of Chaos discussion differentiates the VoH online community from other social media. The six Voices of Humanity will be morale builders whose messages are always new and inspiring. The winning messages each lunar month will weave a tale of love and wit, remaking humanity's vision of itself in the process. Through this new lens, the human race will see itself as the intelligent, generous and capable species that we are, giving us the trust and confidence we need to cooperate on pressing global matters.

By adding a collective dimension to the social media experience, we can build a sense of community that will heal the world, bringing order out of chaos. That is the timely vision the Order out of Chaos discussion is designed to fulfill.

"Geographic levels" have recently been implemented for the Order out of Chaos discussion. Now the scope of the online discussion can be easily shifted from Global to National to State, Metro, City and group levels. Also, four special Voices are supported for Indigenous Peoples, disadvantaged Minorities, Veterans, Refugees, and the Interfaith movement. Coming soon participants will be able to focus the discussion by topic using hashtags. For instance #MayorsForPeace will give nuclear disarmament supporters a collective voice at the city through global levels.

The Voices of Humanity online community is implemented via InterMix open source software at github under the AGPL license.
