Making The World Peace Plan a Reality

Do you think world peace is possible? Most people, especially in these difficult times, would answer "no." That is why we have had to take the long way around to introduce the plan.

Most people think the United Nations is the solution, or leave it to the government to deal with. Or think world peace is not possible at all because of mankind's inherent inability to work together peacefully. People had to reach the understanding that the existing structure is not solving the problems, and then look for an alternative that functions on a higher level. Then whose plan would be accepted? The one that is already dealing with the crisis successfully.

For any plan to be successful, it must address the root cause of the problem. If it doesn't address the root cause of the problems, it makes the crisis worse.

The War on Terror, for example is not working because terrorism is not caused by "bad people wanting to hurt good people," to paraphrase George W. Bush, but because people "on the bottom have no voice in matters of grave concern, and must raise their voice to be heard, oftentimes to the point of violence."

Will the World Peace Plan be considered? Will it solve the problems we are facing as a nation, or make the problems worse?

Several years ago we put our webpage online, and asked for anyone who supported the plan to add their name to our affiliate membership list. As of this date, people from 53 nations have added their name to the list. We then introduced the proposals for specific nations to the ambassadors in Washington, DC through a series of newsletters. The support from the people of the nations leverages the plan amongst the ambassadors in Washington, DC. The idea then spread to the governments.

Now it is time to make the plan a reality. Month by month, we are introducing projects that enable the plan to come about. The proposals solve the problems the way the proposed international government will solve them.

The first proposal is actually one of our economic stimulus plans. The War in Iraq is a drain on the U.S. economy that must be plugged. We are calling for mediation between President Bush and one of Saddam Hussein's ranking lieutenants. The mediation can end the fighting, but not decide the case, and so it will lead to the creation of the local court system of the One World government.

Before the stakeholders will agree to the mediation, they must see how they can function on a higher level, and so we are introducing precursor plans, starting within our organization. The first is a teaching project that allows average people to learn how to create the life they want, and the other is to introduce conflict resolution instruction. More on those in later posts.

In May 2011, our organization started to address a concurrent proposal, a grassroots movement within the United States calling for an Article V constitutional amendment convention. This process can take some time to come about. Thirty four state legislatures must ask the U.S. Congress to hold the convention, and then thirty eight must ratify the amendment before it becomes law. The success of this aspect of the plan is dependent on people understanding that world peace is possible, overcoming the helplessness that so many people are feeling now about the future.

Then, we will address the Iraq proposal.
