This article will argue that we need a global social contract under the Constitution for the Federation of Earth to solidify and actualize our planetary coherence and interconnections in such a way that it will both protect and respect our diversity, our freedom, and our future. For more than a century, the central on-going discovery of all the major sciences has been the deep coherence and holism of our universe. Everything that exists is coherent and deeply integrated into its species and its environment, except for human beings. However, the immense problems of environmental destruction, poverty, and war that are devastating our planet cry out for a paradigm shift from fragmentation to holistic integration. That paradigm shift would embody a global social contract through which human beings begin cooperating to build a decent future for our planet and all its creatures.

Keywords: agreement, global economic system, global social contract, de-mocracy, poverty, environment, the Constitution of the Earth, Federation the Earth.
