Does Donald Trump Deserve the Nobel Peace Prize?

Donald Trump is taking credit for the historic handshake between Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae In, and happy to hear several members of the media question whether this will lead to a Nobel Peace Prize. He is now even more firmly under the illusion that his maximum pressure tactics succeed, and now Secretary of State Pompeo is in Saudi Arabia encouraging the Saudis to join them in putting pressure on Iran.

Can his maximum pressure policy lead to peace? 

People who have been dragged into a war lack the principle of equality. The first requirement for conflict resolution is that both sides must be considered equal. If you consider a court case to be like a mini- war, for a fair trial, both sides must be equal under the law. 

Trump's policy of maximum pressure is based on the premise that he is more important than others, including Kim Jong Un and North Korea, and Bashar Al Assad and Syria, and Iran, and therefore, he believes he has the right to put them down. This doesn't lead to peace. It leads to perpetual wars. 

An example of that is Iraq. It can be considered an example of maximum pressure.

George HW Bush waged war on Saddam Hussein, and that set the stage for George W. Bush to judge Saddam Hussein to be Axis of Evil. The conflict devolved not as a war, but as a genocide, and it is still going on today. People who have been dragged into a genocide lack their unalienable rights. 

Before the US Constitution can be used as the basis for the international legal system, laws and practices that cause chaos in our legal system must be purified to prevent the chaos from spreading onto the international level. Our first step is to address a misunderstanding. Many people see two levels to our legal system--constitutional law and federal laws--and omit Universal Law. There are always three levels in the Universe--the principles, the power and the project. When you leave out Universal Law, you leave out the seven principles of equality, liberty, freedom, compassion, abundance, capacity and tolerance. Governments can justify laws and practices that are based on power games that are oppressive to the people. 

The Iraq War was considered constitutional, but it went against Universal Law. It was an unlawful war, and because it was based on a sense of judgment, it devolved as a genocide. It deprived the Iraqi people their unalienable rights, and because the US government did that, now we are losing our rights. To get them back again, we must now stop playing the power games and guarantee our unalienable rights granted to us by our Creator to everyone person on the planet.

The policy of preemption goes against the premise that someone is presumed innocent until proven guilty. It is failed policy. The policy of maximum pressure doesn't treat both sides fairly and equally, and it is also failed policy.

World Peace is Not What You Expect

People all over the world are aware of the plan for world peace, and it was opened to debate, but how to bring it about is not what anyone expects. Our World Peace Marketing Strategy says that people must be squeezed to come in. Why? Why not just have all the world leaders get together and do it?

Because, it wouldn't work. It wouldn't address the root cause of the problems, and they are the power games that governments--and people--play.

World peace requires a paradigm shift, and that won't occur on the individual level unless the existing paradigm is proven not to work. Mankind must let go of the seven power games known as the Seven Deadly Sins.

Mankind lives on the third dimension, which is known as the Illusion. We all go along thinking the power games will help us get the life we want. Each of us is born with a blueprint in our heart for our ideal life, and every choice we make is supposed to help us reach our goal, but misunderstandings kick us a few degrees off course. We keep believing we are headed toward our goal. Eventually, we are so far off course that we are 180 degrees from where we think we are. We see ahead of us our dream life, and it is like walking toward a door, and all we have to do is to open the door, and we are there. Instead, we open the door and we find a brick wall. We are 180 degrees from where we think we are.

At this point in time, several world leaders have been jockeying for power to see who will be the next superpower. Donald Trump, for example, reached the door and opened it, and he became president of the United States, but he is also facing investigations. He keeps thinking he is the most powerful man on the planet, but he isn't. What Trump wants is cannot be found in the White House.

The truth is, the power any government has is derived from its people. There is a misunderstanding about where true power comes from, and this is the lesson mankind is working through as the result of the Iraq War.

The Bible talk about the Banquet Table, and compares the third dimension to be like the dogs under the table, fighting for the crumbs that fall from it. Which dog will get the crumb? The dogs believe they are getting their life, but it is all an illusion.

In the parable, the fourth dimension can be considered the leg of the table, and that is the understanding that you can get your life, but it is not based on fighting for crumbs. There is still blame, and you still have not achieved your life.

The top of the table is the fifth dimension, and that is when you are actively working to create the life you want. It is not based on illusion, but on the planning process.

World peace requires a paradigm shift from believing you are getting your life to actually being the person you were born to be.

People must be squeezed to let go of the power games. When people believe they can't get the life they want, that is when they die, so for most people, it is their end of life crisis.

To go back to Donald Trump--from the perspective of an archetype--how easy would it be for him to let go of his power games? Who can convince him not to use maximum pressure against North Korea?

There are five power games that governments play, and they are all associated with revenge. Five people or groups of people come together to get revenge on one individual, such as Saddam Hussein. One group believes they have the right to put him down. That draws in those who believe they can judge him to be evil. The next group believe they can take what is rightfully his. That brings in those who believe they can own him, and that brings in those who believe they can deny him a voice.

Revenge goes against Universal law. There is always a backlash to the games, and so if you believe you are more important than him, and therefore you have the right to put him down, under Universal Law, he will go up while you go down. When the power games backlash on you, that is when you reach the point of the Brick Wall, and you, too, are being squeezed to let go of the games.

While the world leaders jockey for power to see who will be the next superpower, don't expect them to be able to create the international government. They must be invited in by their people, and the people must choose when that nation is ready to participate in the plan for the international government.
