  1. The UN Secretary-General warns that states can actually make the people less safe by undermining good governance and the rule of law, referring to policies that erode human rights to bolster counter-terrorism efforts. The best way to counter terrorism is revision of government structures to improve power and resource allocation. Also needed is One World under One Set of Laws and a commitment to a common destiny for humankind. Ensuring human security, including 'personal safety', is the most urgent duty of constitutional guarantors. This means revising constitutional standards as needed to keep pace with changing times and allow governments to protect their people from fear. See the Charter for Permanent Peace and Development.
