~ Idea 1324 ~ 24 February 1998
I hope that someone will create a world peoples' association or movement called "Enough Is Enough" calling for the total demilitarization and disarmament of this planet. Read what Tolstoy said about the military (idea 1284).
Peoples' opinion should not tolerate that 3/4 of a trillion dollars are being spent by governments on militaries and ever more sophisticated armaments when there are so many poor, hungry, suffering people in the world.
People should have the courage to say to their governments: "we are fed up; we want a change; give the UN the means to secure peace among nations; the plans are all ready for it; all that is missing is your consent.

| Robert's Golden Sayings |
|If you want a safe, problemless, questionless life, it is very simple: take side for capitalism or communism, take side for your race, your nation, your religion and all will be chewed in advance for you - the arguments, the philosophy, the justifications, the infallibility, the methods, the sentiments, the commitments, the symbols, the hymns, the art, the literature, your personal meaning, life and death. Join the most powerful group of your time and you will have no problems in your life. If you choose God, the Earth, humanity and yourself, you will have endless difficulties and troubles. |
* The Russian people applauded the invasion of Afghanistan.
The Jews applauded the invasion of Lebanon.
The Argentineans prayed God in their cathedral for victory in the Malvinas islands.
The British thanked God in Westminster Abbey for their victory in the Falklands.
The Americans applauded the invasion of Grenada
Where is the peace of the world in all that? How can there be peace if people applaud their armies and the violations of the United Nations Charter?

| When Victor Hugo declared that humanity needed a United States of the World, his friends thought that he had gone mad. |
Well, today, we have a universal United Nations which is undoubtedly the first step towards a United States of the world.
Nation states are too big to handle local problems and too small to handle global problems.

WORD FOR THE DAY
Saturday, Jan. 21
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more.
| Melody Beattie |
Dear Robert and Barbara,
I deeply admire the linking of spirituality and politics.
With my little forces, I also work in this direction.
My little book “Demokratiemanifest für die schweigende Mehrheit”
may be useful.
I dare to add a very recent interview by the German spiritual magazine
“Tattva viveka”, and a related, but less spiritual article in English.
My approach is a structural and philosophical one, which wants to prove
that philosophy can become practical.
The Divine forces bless you!
