The following is an excerpt from the WSDC 2022 Platform, approved June 25, 2022:
The United States should lead by example and work within the world community in a spirit of peace, cooperation, and generosity to support human welfare, freedom, and democracy. Diplomacy and nonviolent conflict resolution must be the primary organizing principles of our foreign policy. We pledge support of our troops and honor our veterans who act in the service of our country. The core task of the U.S. military is to provide for the common defense. Our military must be adequate to provide for our nation’s defense and should never be open to abuses of power by any branch of government. The rule of law is a prerequisite for a democratic civil society. A good government provides for the safety, security, and justice for all, with care, fairness, and respect for everyone. Finally, Government derives its legitimacy from the people, to whom it must be answerable; it serves as their instrument to achieve ends that the people could not achieve individually. Our representative democracy requires full participation by an informed citizenry; a voting process that is fair, transparent, and open to all; and public officials who are accountable to society. An informed citizenry and persistently inquisitive media are essential for democracy to flourish. The free flow of information is fundamental to democracy.
