[GMW #2378] World People's Assembly Makes NATO Obsolete

Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1001 to 1500
~ Idea 1240 ~
2 December 1997
I cannot repeat it enough, NATO has lost its justification now that the cold war is over. NATO should be transferred to the UN as a regional arm of a world security system. Its forces would become blue-beret Peace-keeping forces. Its resources would do a lot of good to the UN. As proposed earlier in these 2000 ideas its War Room, which monitors the world situation should become a United Nations World Peace Room. How long will people tolerate the ongoing waste of expenditures of NATO and SEATO? A peoples' world movement for their abolishment should be formed. The subject should be taken up by The Hague Centennial Peoples' World Conference in 1999 and by the World Peoples' Assembly 2000, accompanying the UN's General Assembly 2000.

Every morning, when we wake up, we should say:
"Dear God, I promise You not to complain today.
I will be joyful and grateful to You
for Your wonderful, incredible gift of my life."

Daily Good
A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates,  should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas  - a place where history comes to life.  -- Norman Cousins  Good News of the Day: Libraries have a special place in history as a hearth of culture that kindled the greatest feats of science and the grandest works of art. Yet today, they're in danger of being left precisely there -- in history. As our collective use of libraries dwindles in the digital age, five brave efforts are innovating the concept of "the library" in ways that make it as culturally relevant today as it ever was. {More}
