Robert's Golden Sayings
The UN is the convergence of all life forces on this Earth, an evolutionary cradle of new collective ways of life of the human race. It was born from the sacrifices of millions of humans who suffered and died from earlier more primitive political beliefs. And we are not yet over the hump! National sovereignty and the nuclear powers still stand in the way of a better future.

My Testament to the UN
-A Contribution to the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, 1995, Chapter 7

It is not so much socialism and capitalism which we must right, but militarism which infests almost all nations.

Rituals manifest a feeling of faith and togetherness. All religions understand this and incorporate rituals in their sacraments. Nations follow this example. Today we need world rituals to manifest our faith in humanity and in a better world. The United Nations has adopted many world celebrations and symbols which people should support.

Good morning,

Look at this inspiring interview with Robert.

Love, Barbara

Most of All They Taught Me Happiness By Robert Muller
Selected Quotes and Related Comments
By Vicky Rossi

#10 Quotation from the chapter entitled “Of Simplicity”, volume 4 “Lessons from Other People”:

“(…) in my view it takes a lot of courage to be superficial. The man [or woman] who buries himself [or herself] in his [or her] speciality often closes his [or her] eyes to the more general streams of life and knowledge. His [Their] specialization can become resignation and an escape from the difficulties of grasping the total order of things. The world continues to turn, knowledge to expand, humanity to grow, while specialists keep on building protective walls around them. (…) We surely need specialists, for the march of science will proceed farther and farther into the infinitely large and small, but we need also generalists and universalists – that is, people who have the courage to know the essentials of all sciences and see the totality. Superficiality can be a duty. In any event, it is certainly a form of courage.”

My related comments:

Amongst the challenges faced today by the human race we are increasingly aware of the global impact of climate change, large-scale migration, and air, water and soil pollution. Is the human race not in the predicament it is today precisely because we have a lack of universalists, or at any rate because we continue to put the onus so strongly on the need for specialization? The universalist might, for example, have predicted that unrestrained development had the potential to lead to pollution of the atmosphere, which in turn had the potential to result in dramatic changes in weather conditions, which in turn have the potential to create, in the future, large numbers of “environmental” refugees, that is, people who migrate because of environmental difficulties.

Chemical weapons provide us with another contemporary example of how the absence of universalist thinking at the beginning has led to the difficulties of today. Beyond the issue of the pain and suffering that can be inflicted by these weapons, whilst the U.S. and the ex-Soviet Union were building up their stockpiles of nerve agent and mustard gas, there was most certainly little consideration given to the potential impact of the aging chemicals on the environment, how they could be safely destroyed in the future or the fact that they would become a security threat as a result of growing international terrorism. As such, the ex-Soviet Union produced 40,000 tonnes of chemical weapons and the U.S., in its turn, produced 32,000 tonnes.

Today, under the Chemical Weapons Convention, Russia and the United States have agreed to destroy all their stockpiles of chemical weapons by 2012. These destruction processes are underway but continue to be fraught with difficulties: the U.S., for example, has had repeatedly to temporarily shut down or postpone its destruction activities because of technical problems or protests from the general public living in the vicinity of the stockpiles; in Russia, shortfalls in available funds have also put destruction activities behind schedule. The lack of universalist thinking in the case of chemical weapons is evidenced in the fact that these weapons might have been reasonably easy to produce and stockpile at the beginning, but right now there is no chemical weapons destruction technology available which is 100% safe or efficient.

In praise of Most of All, They Taught Me Happiness: "Robert Muller's extraordinary vision, courage and ebullience can't help but engender hope in anyone who hears or reads his words. How, you might wonder, can a man who, as an Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations, was within the circles of power in the last half of the bloody 20th century have so much enthusiasm for human possibilities? Somehow he manages to see half full glasses as full glasses in the making. He has inspired my life as I read this book and allow him to do the same for you."
-Vicki Robin, co-author Your Money or Your Life, founder Conversation Cafes.
