Robert's forward for the new book: Lookingfor Square Two: Moving from War and Organized Violence to Global Community by Douglas Mattern:
We are living in the worst of times and the best of times. The worst of these is that for more than fifty-five years, nuclear weapons have threatened the earth and everyone on it. Testing and production have caused environmental degradation everywhere on the planet and created the possibility of a nuclear war. It is absolutely imperative that we eliminate, eradicate, and forever destroy all nuclear weapons from the face of the earth to keep it the paradise we were given at birth.
The best is the solution offered by Douglas Mattern in Looking for Square Two-Moving from War and Organized Violence to Global Community. Since the earth is in peril and the greatest part of humanity is still in misery, we must be audacious, strong, and loving. We must stretch our minds and hearts to the dimension of the problems. As President Roosevelt wrote in his own hand on the day before his death for the speech he was to deliver at the opening of the San Francisco Conference convened to give birth to the United Nations:
"The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today."
In my view, after fifty-five years of service in the United Nations, this all points to the utmost urgency and absolute necessity for proper Earth Government. It should be number one on the agenda of world affairs at the entry into the third millennium. There is not a shadow of a doubt that the present political and economic systems -- if systems they are! -- are no longer appropriate and will lead to the end of life's evolution on this planet. We must therefore absolutely and urgently look for new ways. The less time we lose, the less nature we will destroy.
I would urge therefore that immediate consideration be given to the proposals offered by Douglas Mattern. It's a matter of life and death.
