Also known as the Huangshan Accord, Huangshan Treaty, or Huangshan Agreement the treaty is a multi-national agreement that formally phased out the ASB in favor of a reformed institution called the Third International. The document lays down the foundation of the Third International law as agreed upon by its signatories.
The Treaty of Fair Freedoms of International Commitment and Unity of International Social and Labour Parties also grants accord to independent Socialist and Communist Parties abroad to become members.
On this date - July 2, 1977 - the nations of the United Socialist States of America/United States of America, New People's China, The Kingdom of Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, The People's the Revolutionary Communes of Western Russia (Novogord, Talinn, Saint Petersburg), The Republic of the Philippines and the People's Republic of Northern Finland convene in accorance and in the interests of free soveriegnty, privledge, and cooperation in friendship for all peoples meet and do sign this document. Granting to each elector the strengths and promises of support social, economical, and politically to safeguard their social, cultural, and economic advancement and to shield against foriegn enemies of the state who would seek intentional harm on the people.
It is thus the purpose of this treaty to dissolve the former Asian Socialist Bloc as under the Treaty of Beijing and to recraft it into a new institution that does not threaten to endanger each other's unique social, economic, or political virtues, while at the same time promoting the advancement of ideals to the benefit of the workers. To usher in a society truely equal.
As a signatory, each state agrees to abide by these laws in faith of each nation and the scrutiny of the people which they serve. It is the duty of each signatory to thus provide aid to each member when summoned. To involve themselves in the laws and legislature of the new International. And that signing, you are subscribing yourself in honor and faith to uphold the virtues and honors of the International, and that within the International no one state shall have on another complete and total influence. It is with this proud faith we muster our strengths in the vision of defense.
As stands: all states signing agree to recognize the complete and total soveriegnty and independence of all nations involved.
We do thus also agree to submit to internationally binding agreements commited to the world by its signatories provided a member state is a signatory. Agreement to which may be rendered in full based on questions posed, and comittee drawn to discuss as equal, free peoples.

To act against the humanism of a population is the active destruction of their unique culture and identities through forcefull assimilation programs and mass-murders. This is also extended to political or religous ideology however deviant from the current norm.
If however these populations are to act aggressive against the hosting power than aggression action may be taken to quell their own anti-humanist action given that the population is not destroyed, but pacified to where it may live in unity with their brothers. But only in the event of aggression against the host.
