Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 1027 ~    3 May 1997

In a remarkable, timely, historic document, the Director General of UNESCO, Mr. Federico Mayor, has proclaimed the fundamental human right of each Earth inhabitant to peace.  Bravo, bravissimo.

At the beginning of his document he quotes Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "Each individual has the right to life, liberty and the security of his person."

I go a step further:  I ask in these 2000 ideas the fundamental human right not to kill and not to be killed, not even in the name of a nation, religion, race, nor of any other human ideology or institution, the individual person being the basic cosmic unity of humanity's evolution on this planet, or as the religions call it, a sacred human being, or as I call it, a true miracle, a child of God.

Article 3 of the Universal Declaration means: if I have the basic right to life, no one else, especially not a nation, religion, race, ideology or institution has the right to take this life away from me.  Young men drafted into military service or into an army should refuse to go and take their case to the International Court of Justice for a violation of a basic human right, the right to life.

Writing and art are preserved life, a form of longevity, perhaps of eternity.

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky is by no means a waste of time.
