~ Idea 3985 ~
I like the idea of Ross Smyth, a senator of over 60,000 honorary life members of the Jaycee's International that the UN should open a campaign against the legality of war as a way to settle disputes. He proposes that the 1928 Kellogg-Briand Treaty be re-examined by the United Nations. Articles one and two of it are as follows:
Article 1 - The High Contracting Parties solemnly declare in the names of their respective peoples that they condemn recourse to war for the solution of international controversies, and renounce it as an instrument of national policy in their relations with one another.
Article 2 - The High Contracting Parties agree that the settlement or solution of all disputes or conflicts of whatever nature or of whatever origin they may be, which may arise among them, shall never be sought except by pacific means.
Ross Smyth is entirely right when he says that: "This 1928 treaty did not provide effective law nor compulsory procedures for arbitration, nor a definition of war. Seventy-three years later a new attempt to make warfare effectively illegal is both justified and overdue in the nuclear age. We owe it to our children and grandchildren."

I repeat these words by Goethe which so well apply when you have decided to be a good-doer on Earth. They applied fully to my life. I could give innumerable examples of them, write a whole book on them.
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.
Concerning acts of initiative and creation there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:
That the moment one definitely commits oneself then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.
A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no one could have dreamt would come their way.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
Begin it now.
