~ Idea 6272 ~ All non nuclear countries should create a powerful, vocal, active world alliance and give a resounding welcome and substantial philanthropic prize to new countries having demilitarized themselves.

|I have to be worthy of the incredible chance to work for the United Nations. |
My Testament to the UN
-A Contribution to the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, 1995, Chapter 10
|I will never forget a wise and melancholic remark made by Premier Zhou En Lai during the visit of the UN Secretary-General to Beijing in 1972. |
"I am sitting here surrounded by my advisers trying to figure out what they might be scheming against us in Moscow and in Washington. In Moscow, they are trying to figure out what Beijing and Washington might be scheming against them. And they are probably doing the same in Washington. But perhaps in reality no one is scheming against anyone!"
And he concluded that the role of the UN Secretary-General as an intermediary between heads of states was extremely important. As I listened to him, I closed my eyes and visualized the day when in his huge offIce there will be an audio-TV system linked instantaneously with all his partners in the administration of planet Earth.
Twenty years later, there still does not exist such a system between heads of states, although consultations between some of them were almost instantaneous during the Iraq-Kuwait war. How many decades will it still require to emerge from this stoneage non-system of working-relations between heads of states? Multinational business is infinitely better organized.
Sometimes I go about pitying myself, and all the time I am being carried on great winds across the sky.
