New Blog: Dutch From Toon: Last week I undertook to translate in Dutch the ' Ten Commandments to all Humans' as formulated by the Honourable Robert Mueller. I have tried to do so for the blog. A translation in Dutch of 'My Commitments' is also on the blog.Please do not hesitate to have my translation checked by other Dutch speakers.
Send translations of your favorite Good Morning World ideas and dreams from Robert so they can be posted to a blog of the translated language. Please include the GMW #.
Introduction (Ideas 301 to 400)
3. Absolute necessity for a World Security System
The United Nations Charter established a Military Staff Committee of the Security Council in which the heads of the armies of the five permanent members were supposed to come up with a world security system whereafter they would turn to the disarmament of the planet.
This sensible way was cut short by the cold war, and still has not been revived since the end of that war. If the five permanent members of the Security Council do not comply with this requirement of the UN Charter, the Secretary General of the UN should come up with his proposals for a world security system allowing effective disarmament thereafter. It is gratifying that the Worldwide Consultative Association of Retired Generals and Admirals has taken up that task and has come up with proposals for a world and regional security system.
My own proposals for a world security system include the creation at the United Nations of a World Peace Room similar to the War Room of NATO to monitor all potential conflicts and inform immediately the Security Council and the Secretary-General. Another proposal is to create an instantaneous telecommunications system between the Secretary General and all heads of states, open day and night. There are several other proposals in these 2000 ideas.

| Robert's Golden Sayings |
|The government of a great country announced the creation of a panel to prevent nuclear terrorism by individuals against cities and civilian populations. This is a strange decision by a country which holds practically every city on Earth under its nuclear threat. Should one not call such countries ‘nuclear terrorists’? This reminds me of this famous passage in St. Augustine’s City of God: |
When Alexander the Great asked a captured pirate what he meant by infesting the sea, the pirate boldly answered: “and what do you mean by warring on the whole world? I do my fighting on a tiny ship, and they call me a pirate; you do yours with a large fleet, and they call you a commander.
My Testament to the UN
-A Contribution to the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, 1995, Chapter 9
|What is my greatest wish for the UN? |
That the world will increase immensely its support for it, so that all humanity can be ushered peacefully into the next millennium.
For centuries the religions have claimed the allegiance of the people, promising them paradise but in reality causing some of the bloodiest wars on this planet. Now nations are doing the same and again the people fall for it. Do we never learn anything from history? Dear people, it is high time that you proclaim your allegiance to the planet and to the human family. Politics and governments must become the servants of that higher allegiance.
We must teach children to love this planet and their human family more than any group claiming their allegiance.
Robert Muller responds to World Heritage Day
Your April 18 International Monument Day is marvelous, a significant contribution to human happiness. Thank you for sending it to Barbara and me.
It reminds me of a remark of U Thant, "In every capital I visit they take me to a Monument to the Unknown Soldier, but never to the Monument for the Unknown Peacemaker."
Where are also are monuments to women? Barbara and I have one to Eleanor Roosevelt at the University for Peace in Costa Rica.
And why for 60 years did we have only men as Secretary Generals of the United Nations and never a woman? That is my dream that a woman will be the glorious next United Nations Secretary General.
Warm Embraces, Robert Muller
PS We need an agency for injustices and of the not yet achieved dreams for a better world..just a thought..
There are many Environment Days in the year we can celebrate. Today is one of them!
World Heritage is the shared wealth of humankind. Protecting and preserving this valuable asset demands the collective efforts of the international community. This special day offers an opportunity to raise the public's awareness about the diversity of cultural heritage and the efforts that are required to protect and conserve it, as well as draw attention to its vulnerability. http://www.gdrc.org/heritage/world-heritage-day.html
The International Day for Monuments and Sites was created on 18th April, 1982, by ICOMOS and later approved at the 22nd UNESCO General Conference in 1983. This special day offers an opportunity to raise publicâ€™s awareness concerning the diversity of the worldâ€™s heritage and the efforts that are required to protect and conserve it, as well as to draw attention to its vulnerability. http://www.international.icomos.org/18thapril/2006/18april2006.htm
There are many monuments in the world we can think about on this day -- these include:
The Taj Mahal, Stonehenge, the Pyramids and Sphinx, the Temples of Malta, the statues of Easter Island, Machu Picchu, the Mayan Temples, Angkor Wat, the Colosseum in Rome, the Great Wall of China, the Parthenon, and so many more they can't be listed here. You can find information on the internet easily and hopefully on this day many people will join in celebrating our wonderful World Heritage.
