[GMW #2856] Annual Better World & National Happiness Reports

[GMW #2856] Annual Better World & National Happiness Reports Idea Dream -Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 3500

~ Idea 3251 ~
Each government should submit every year a report to the United Nations on the peace and help it has received from the United Nations and other countries for its people and also what it has contributed to the peace and progress of other countries and of a better world.

Such a report could also be submitted by governments and by the United Nations Secretary General for the entire period since the creation of the UN after World War II.  The document would be of great value to the next generation and to future global historians.

O, what a better world it would be if people and nations spoke less badly of each other!  This was U Thant's first law for personal as well as international behavior.  His son-in-law, Tyn Myint U, once told me:
"There is one thing I did not understand about my father-in-law.  For example, when a new Ambassador was invited to our home, invariably after he left, U Thant would say:
"What a nice man he is." 

I retorted to him:  "How can you say that?  Why don't you wait and see how he behaves before pronouncing judgment?  He might turn out to be quite bad."  U Thant answered:

"In my eyes he is a human brother and a nice man until proven contrary."
U Thant had another rule:  if he disliked or disapproved of someone, he would never say it, he simply remained silent, even if asked for his opinion.
