~ Idea 20 ~ 30 July 1994
I hope that many countries will follow the example of Costa Rica and Panama and will demilitarize themselves by Constitution.
There are already 14 of them in the world. They should create an association of demilitarized states and show others how it can be done, and what immense benefits they derive from it. Those which are members of the United Nations should create a Group of Demilitarized Countries at the UN.
To begin with, all Central American Republics should imitate Costa Rica and Panama and make Central America a demilitarized zone of peace.
To reduce the impact of unemployment, a good part of the militaries should be transformed into environmental and productive forces (reforestation, road construction, rehabilitation of the inner cities, etc.) possibly with financial help from rich countries.
Here is the list of countries without armies:
Costa Rica, Dominica, Kiribati, Liechtenstein, Mauritius, Maldives, Monaco, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, San Marino, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Solomon Islands, Panama. 1996: also Haiti
12 more countries have no army but defense arrangements with another country:
Andorra (France), Cook Islands (New Zealand), Gambia (Senegal), Iceland (USA), Marshall Islands (USA), Northern Marianas (USA), Federated States of Micronesia (USA), Niue (New Zealand), Palau (USA), Tuvalu (UK), Vanuato (Papua New Guinea)

Chapter 12 - Of Beauty and Arts
May your life be a beautiful work of art.
Work at it always. Make it your priority, your purpose, your ideal.
Be able to say to yourself: I have made my life a resplendent work of art.
