Why is world peace so hard to attain?

They (our Governments) shake hands with Government who lock up their citizens because of their ethnic group or faith, who put them in labour camps, and who shoot then without trial.

Until we learn how to live without killing each other World Peace is not possible. We have democratically elected Governments in many parts of the World who are signatories to the International Convention of Human rights.

That convention does not allow children to die of starvation or from war. But they do – every day. We have also allowed crime to become too acceptable a part of our lives.

Yet our Governments appear on television and tell us how important it is that we allow all persons not to be harassed or bullied. They tell school children not to bully and harass. They tell us the People we will be arrested and go to Prison for life if we commit murder.

They (our Governments) shake hands with Government who lock up their citizens because of their ethnic group or faith, who put them in labour camps, and who shoot then without trial.

Our Governments then increase their hypocrisy by visiting those same countries and giving them AID money which allows those same Countries to arm more military and suppress their citizens rights with an even greater excess of force.

How can there ever be World Peace without adherence to the Principal of Defending the Weak and the Innocent and the Principal of respect for another human?

If I ever become the Prime Minister the United Kingdom I would close down every embassy in the UK whose Government abused human rights – and that would include China.

We must reform the U.N and use overwhelming Military Intervention to bring conflicts to an end and that means all of the Security Council not just the U.S.A the U.K and their allies.

Until we draw the red line of human rights and defend that red line we will never have World Peace.

 

Why has the world failed to maintain peace?

On the day that ‘We the People’ have a say in International Democracy then that is the day when the road to World Peace will begin.

Because ‘We the People’ have no democracy at the International Level. We have no say in who represents us at the United Nations.

This is a very strange state of affairs considering that the United Nations is meant to be the ‘peak’ organisation in the World representing human rights’.

In face none of the International Organisations that exist have representatives of Countries in which the people have a say in whom is to speak and act for them.

I live in Sydney, Australia. I work alongside all race and their respective cultures. In Sydney Jew works and plays with Arab. In the Gaza they kill each other.

It is not the people preventing the World from enjoying World Peace it is our Governments and vested interests.

On the day that ‘We the People’ have a say in International Democracy then that is the day when the road to World Peace will begin.

I have written a new United Nations. It is not the people who do not read it or prevent it from being read – it is Theresa May, Donald Trump, Nikki Haley, Malcolm Turnbull and the media who do not acknowledge and support my work.

We must ask the Question ‘ When are we the people going to be able to vote in the United Nations for Peace?’

What even is world peace? Wouldn’t it stop innovation and creativity? Isn’t world peace subjective?

To a child who was moments before sitting chuckling to herself as she amused her imagination with her tatty and dust laden angel who had promised her that all the dreams she could ever had would come true, it was very subjective. To a child who was moments before sitting chuckling to herself as she amused her imagination with her tatty and dust laden angel who had promised her that all the dreams she could ever had would come true, it was very subjective.

Q&A on Quora

World Peace is subjective. To a child who was moments before sitting chuckling to herself as she amused her imagination with her tatty and dust laden angel who had promised her that all the dreams she could ever had would come true, it was very subjective. After her chuckling came a sound she had never heard before. It was loud, very loud. If pain could be given a name then that was the sound she heard. Her Angel was gone. Instead two mangled bleeding bloody legs remained. She was a victim of collateral damage – that is the term the Generals use so that they don’t scare their own children.

To the Prime Minister or President who ordered the bombing attack World Peace was also subjective. But he or she never felt the pain or the fear whilst in the Vatican shaking hands with the Pope.

I have used the illustration above to show that World Peace is indeed subjective. If you are a victim of the lack of World Peace then your view is very different to those who are not,

War does not innovate. All it does is speed up the rate of technology change that produces more weaponry to kill us with. More weapons are developed in so-called Peacetime than in major conflicts.

World Peace will provide the People of the World with the opportunity to live lives of mutual self-respect. Unfortunately at the moment it is unlikely to occur.

Until the United Nations is reformed to ensure that no sides are taken by all the members of an enlarged Security Council in any conflict then we will never have World Peace.

What is wrong with our society today?

I have tried to do something about the screaming child who in Africa has a swollen mouth and tongue chocking her. Her muscles wasted with bones so fragile they cannot take her weight without breaking. I thought it wrong that all she ever knew was pain before she will die of Aids.

This is a QA on Quora.

Absolutely nothing. It is obviously humane and compassionate to allow 20,000 children to die of malnutrition, conflict and disease everyday.

As I eat my MacDonald’s Burger and consider buying another I look around me and I note that some people have so many they can hardly walk.

I do not see my Government doing anything about the deaths of so many children. The Pope shakes the hands of all the World Leaders who are responsible for the World’s Economies. Is that a sign of approval?

Therefore, it must be OK for me to have plenty to eat and the Children in Africa to die.

I do not see thousands or even million protesting so the people of the Western World and all those who have plenty to eat must consider it to be OK.

I do not hear the Ayatollah of Iran saying it is not a good thing. The Chief Rabbi of Israel cannot be heard saying the World must not be so greedy and selfish.

I have tried to do something about the screaming child who in Africa has a swollen mouth and tongue chocking her. Her muscles wasted with bones so fragile they cannot take her weight without breaking. I thought it wrong that all she ever knew was pain before she will die of Aids.

But nobody took any notice of my writing with new ideas and systems to save her life and the lives of so many others- not one member of Government anywhere in the World or one member of the Faiths of God. Not one Journalist. Nobody, zero,

Is it worth it to sacrifice one million people to create everlasting world peace?

There can be no everlasting Peace that comes about with the death of a million people. The deaths of one million people and more occured in 1914–1918 and 1939–1945 with no everlasting Peace.

This is my answer to this Q which is on Quora.

If I were the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, which is a country with nuclear weapons, which you would have to be equipped with in order to answer the question I would state this:

“Nuclear weapons have only one purpose and that is to kill in the millions. The only deterrent they have been is to ensure those Nations with Nuclear Weapons do not make a sudden decision to use them on other Nations with nuclear weapons.

They did not stop Al Qaeda killing 3000 Americans at 911 and they did not stop the Vietnam War or ISIS invading Syria and Iraq. I would use them at the negotiating table to provide a framework with other countries to discuss and achieve a planned and phased reduction in nuclear weapons. Which is a forum much promised but lacking in delivery.

However, if my only option to end an immediate threat to the United Kingdom from a nuclear military force was to use them specifically to bring an immediate end to the threat I would do so. It is highly unlikely that such a threat would involve one million civilians. It is also highly unlikely that such a situation would occur without any of the United Kingdom’s allies being involved. Therefore the question is too hypothetical to consider a more detailed response”.

I would also state that the United Kingdom as an Island is at much more of a risk from a hostile force than the majority of developed Nations. An island is a strategic target and one which is between Europe and the United States even more so. Unless we are able to ensure we know where every Nuclear Weapon in the World is there can never be a complete nuclear disarmament.

Theresa May did not give that answer. Without thinking May said ‘I would’ to the question by Jeremy Corbyn of would she kill 100,000 with a nuclear strike.

Let us hope that Theresa May is able to ‘think’ when faced with a real situation of a ‘United Kingdom under threat’.

Theresa May does not hesitate to say she would kill 100,000 with nuclear strike

There can be no everlasting Peace that comes about with the death of a million people. The deaths of one million people and more occured in 1914–1918 and 1939–1945 with no everlasting Peace.

1.5 million have died in Afghanistan since 1979. A negotiated Peace for the war weary people of Afghanistan is as distant as it has ever been.

If the World wants everlasting Peace then it must begin with the reform of the United Nations. The Security Council must be expanded, the veto dropped and every conflict dealt with by not taking sides.

 

Is world peace possible, or just a fantasy?

truth

This is my answer to this Question on Quora.

For me personally World Peace is a practical achievable state of World Affairs.

My solution for World Peace is simple and available;

To achieve World Peace we either reform the United Nations or replace it with the following Mandate.

‘To achieve World Peace a renewable World Mandate is required for a Legal Unified Overwhelming World Force, under a single command and without taking sides, to bring to an immediate end by all means available any conflict which immediately threatens the people and stability of the Country and Region involved’.

However, we live in a World where Governments do what is best to keep them in Political Power and not what is best for the World.

Therefore, until such times as such a Mandate exists without the veto then World peace is a fantasy.

What are the problems of culture of peace?

cropped-cropped-truth2.jpg

This is my answer to this Question on Quora.

There is a problem and that is that Peace can not be obtained by Peace. I wish it were not so but unfortunately Peace will only be obtained by the use of a Democratic Unified Legal Overwhelming Force – in effect what the United Nations was intended to be and has seldom ever been.

It is a parallel as to why true Socialism will never exist except as a dream for those who seek to achieve it. Not everybody is honest, unselfish, principled and loyal to a cause. In order to co-exist we must rid the World of Evil and that as God, Jesus and the Prophet Muhammad know is not an easy task.

Before we can achieve Peace, as otherwise mankind will destroy itself, we must first ensure we all want Peace.

To do that the enforced promotion of the culture of Peace must begin in the place which has in modern times sought so hard to bring Peace; the United Nations.

If we cannot achieve Peace through a Culture of informed dialogue then we must obtain Peace by force.

We must remove the barriers to Peace that exist to further Nation’s vested self-interest and promote instead a Conflict resolution that has the world’s mandate to stop any conflict by any means available and without taking sides.

Until we are able to stop all conflicts with the World’s Mandate for Peace then there can be no culture of ‘Peace for Peace’.
