Intellectuals love to publish and share their ideas in print, or nowadays in electronic media or in blogs. Members involved with the World Intellectual Forum are no exception to this general rule and have been writing and publishing for many years, in diverse fields. Below is a sample of our writings so far, with ongoing activity emanating from our pens and keyboards as we speak. We work as intellectuals because we have faith that the "pen truly is mightier than the sword", as the old saying goes, or as the famous Hadith of Prophet Muhammad put it, "The Ink of the Scholar is worth more than the blood of the martyr".

World Parliament Breakthrough Legislation under the Earth Constitution. Edited and with an Introduction by Glen T.

• One World Renaissance. Holistic Planetary Transformation through a Global Social Contract. Glen T. Martin, Appomattox, VA: Institute for Economic Democracy Press, October 2015, 418 pages. This book makes the case that the way forward for our misgoverned world is to get in step with universal evolution, which always gives birth to greater and more inclusive wholes. In its most practical sense, this requires that we adopt a planetary social contract based on an awareness of the oneness of humanity—its unity-in-diversity. Such a global agreement would guarantee justice under law, ecological sustainability, and fundamental human harmony, the very presuppositions of civilized living. Ultimately, expressing our wholeness requires that we adopt a world constitution for a democratic federation of earth, the very embodiment of a practical utopia.

This book examines the concept of democracy and the related concept of nonviolence in the light of the global crises we face at the dawn of the 21st century. It develops a deeper understanding of democracy that is inherently nonviolent and fundamentally holistic. It argues that the way out of our current set of interdependent crises and systemic violence is to establish an Earth Federation through actualizing, under a world constitution, the three most fundamental features of authentic democracy: positive freedom, reasonable economic equality, and a global community premised on the many “human universals” that we all share, as well as the common good of the Earth and future generations.

Martin, eds., Pamplin, VA: Institute for Economic Democracy Press, spring 2009 (437 pages).

It develops a philosophical framework for democratic world law by drawing on the scientific revolutions of the twentieth century, the history of democratic thought, and contemporary discussions of human rights. It traces the history of the philosophy of law from ancient times to the present, showing the progressive development of democratic thought that culminates in the imperative for global democracy.

Prof.Dr. D. Swaminadhan, Ph.D., D.Sc. (Global Co-Chair of the World Intellectual Forum) Phd University of Liverpool, The New World Government-Structure and Constitution, 2019 Selected Speeches of Dr. D. Swaminadhan (2013) In hia Selected Speeches of Dr. Swaminathan he covers a wide range of disciplines ranging from sociocultural development to the tools of economic development like higher education, technical education, environment, science and engineering, and technology. The first part covers higher and technical education, value education, engineering and technology, environment, and science. The second part covers the disciplines of development studies, economy, finance, planning, rural development, urban development, tribal development, nongovernmental organisations, and general areas. Independent India wanted to build a modern, strong, dynamic, and self-reliant nation and embarked on the path of planned economic development. Growth, modernisation, self-reliance, and social justice are the basic objectives governing Indian planning. Dr. D. Swaminathan's lecturers presented a clear view about India's planning process. In the context of globalization, reforms in higher and technical education have been set in motion in India. The need for effective cooperation between universities, industries, R&D national laboratories, and the national scientific and engineering associations and bodies has been well recognised for bringing relevance in higher and technical education and for indigenous technology development and sharing of resources. In this context, "Swaminathan Model for University-Industry- National R&D Laboratories-Professional Bodies and Academies Interaction for Country's Economic Development" plays an important role

Gevork Manoukian - Director, Armenian Constitutional Rights Protection Centre (ACRC) , and member of the European Board of the World Intellectual Forum the main journal of the ACRC is edited religiously by Gevork Manoukian for many years now. ACRPC publishing activities are a part of its human rights educational strategy and are aimed at raising the efficiency of education and public awareness. The first printed ACRPC leaflet was distributed in 1989 and was entitled Struggle for the Motherland and for Justice. It was focused on the protection of human rights and education. In April 1997, the leaflet’s content doubled and by August it had grown into a review and started to be published under a new title, For the Sake of Justice. The change in name reflected ACRPC’s mission reform: “to contribute to the development of democracy and human rights protection all over the world”. Since April 2003, the review has been included in the Republic of Armenia Higher Qualification Commission’s list of reviews. The review is published in Armenian. Since February 2003, English and Russian summaries of articles have been added. The Review is edited by Gevork so he hasn't had much time to publish outside of this context as he is also busy dealing with inquiries seeking his legal advice on human rights cases throughout his country. Since June 2002, the review has had a 1,500-copy distribution and is sent to secondary schools in Armenia and Montainous Karabagh. Being a legal-scientific publication, the review covers not only human rights, but also civic education, state and law and other scientific materials. The editorial staff of the scientific-methodological review For the Sake of Justice are not solely responsible for the publication of this particular review, but contribute to all ACRPC publication activities. For the Sake of Justice has received support from both local and international organisations, with its authors and correspondents having won awards. Gevork hopes that For the Sake of Justice will leave its mark in the history of the Armenian periodical press by staying true to its objective: to raise the legal, constitutional and human rights awareness of its readers. We should also reflect that sometimes those who are busiest in the front line of service to the community have little time to do the research that is needed for a string of academic publications. It doesn't mean they are any less "intellectual" than those with countless publications to their name. For example, Socrates never "published" anyway as far as we can tell, and nor for that matter did Jesus - but that they were both consummate intellectuals, at least as WIF defines it, can hardly be doubted.
