Never had humanity
such an opportunity to prepare itself well
for a new century and millennium
We seem to be doing it.
For the fist time in history, humanity is preparing itself properly for its entry into a new century and millennium, something unprecedented. At the end of the last century, there was practically no such preparation. Only two efforts were made: the holding of a World Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893 and the first World Peace Conference in The Hague, Holland, in 1899. There existed only two small international organizations, the UPU (Universal Postal Union) and the ITU (International Telegraphic Union), for the first two global reasons that the mail had to be transported across borders and telegraph poles and lines built across them.
Today there exists a still imperfect, insufficient but first universal organization, the United Nations, strengthened by 32 specialized agencies and world programs created on the historic path opened by the UPU and the ITU.
The UN and these agencies had the vision and foresight to hold and plan a whole series of world conferences reviewing the present state of the world and looking into the next century and millennium.
There is also the unprecedented birth of a series of Independent World Commissions of Eminent Persons, usually headed by a chief of state, doing the same inspiring, forward looking work on some of the most fundamental issues confronting us at this stage of our evolution.
Oh! If we could only teach all children in all schools of the world one lesson: that life is the most precious gift of all, that to live a happy, long, marvelous, exciting life should be their primary aim. It is done in the Robert Muller schools.
