Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1001 to 1500
~ Idea 1330 ~ 2 March 1998
Several people have written to me that the UN should proclaim an International Day of Atonement and Reparation.
Each year nations would review their wrongdoings, ask for forgiveness and offer reparation to the victims.
Cases would be: colonialism, racial discrimination, atomic bombings and tests, the robbing of indigenous lands, the destruction of the Earth and nature, the protection of nazi gold and assets in foreign banks, the keeping of land mines in the soil of foreign lands, etc.
Yes, an International Day of Atonement would be justified. (see Annex: The Dismal Alphabet)

Become a Master of Life even if no University on Earth teaches it and grants that degree. The new UN University for Peace might do it.

WORD FOR THE DAY
Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
George Bernard Shaw
From a speech given at the
Municipal Technical College and School of Art in Brighton
