Responsibility for Global Governance

Who? Where? When? How? Why? Which? What?

Adaptation of the classic "poem" on collective responsibility [see comment on original]


When? Who?
Where?
An initiative of global importance requires engagement Everytime Everybody is called upon to engage in an initiative of global importance An initiative of global importance requires engagement Everywhere
Everytime implies that it should at least happen Sometime Everybody is sure that Somebody would do so Everywhere implies that it will at least happen Somewhere
It could happen Anytime, but not when there is Notime. Anybody could do so, but Nobody does It could happen Anywhere, but is now happening Nowhere.
Anger arises Sometime because engagement should happen Everytime. Somebody is getting angry because it is Everybody's responsibility. Anger arises Somewhere because engagement should happen Everywhere.
Everytime implies that it could happen Anytime, but it takes Notime to realize that Sometime will not do. Everybody knows that Anybody could do so, but Nobody realizes that Somebody will not. Everywhere it is known that it could happen Anywhere, but Nowhere is it realized that Somewhere it is not.
Everytime blame is assigned Sometime because it takes Notime to do what could have been done Anytime. Everybody blames Somebody because Nobody did what Anybody could have done. Everywhere blame is assigned Somewhere because Nowhere has happened what could have happened Anywhere.

Why? What? How? Which?
An initiative of global importance calls for justification on Every-ground An initiative of global importance should take account of Every-issue An initiative of global importance requires engagement in Every-way possible An initiative of global importance should emerge from consideration of Every-choice possible
Every-ground implies that it should at least be justified on Some-ground Every-issue implies that it should at least take account of Some-issue Every-way implies that it should at least be done Some-way Every-choice implies that it should at least be based on Some-choice
It could be justified on Any-ground, but has as yet been justified on No-ground. It could take account of Any-issue, but not when No-issue is considered It could be done Any-way, but as yet has been done No-way. It could be based on Any-choice, but not when No-choice is possible.
Anger is evoked by its justification on Some-ground only because it should be justified on Every-ground. Anger is evoked by considering only Some-issue when account should be taken of Every-issue. Anger is evoked by doing it Some-way because it should be done Every-way. Anger is evoked by restriction to Some-choice because it should emerge from consideration of Every-choice.
Every-ground implies that it could be justified on Any-ground, but on No-ground is Some-ground how it should be justified Every-issue implies that account should be taken of Any-issue, but consideration of No-issue cannot be considered as taking account of Some-issue. Every-way implies that it could be done Any-way, but in No-way is Some-way how it should be done. Every-choice implies that it could be result from Any-choice, but No-choice is not the basis for Some-choice.
Every-ground renders justification on Some-ground questionable because that is No-ground on which to justify what could have been justified on Any-ground. Every-issue aggravates Some-issue when No-issue is taken into account in considering Any-issue. Every-way challenges Some-way because that is No-way to do what could have been done Any-way. Every-choice undermines Some-choice because that is No-choice for what could have been based on Any-choice.

The 6 adaptations of the original ("Who?") variant are inspired by the set of so-called "WH-questions" and their previous use in exploring world problems and global strategies:
