Nuclear weapons are considered an important deterrent for war, but there is a high price to pay. There are crazy leaders in our world who would jeopardize the security of the world for their own egos. Using strength or power to maintain peace has failed in the past. Strength and power must be buttressed by strong moral leanings. No one can bring force peace in the world by conquering countries, cutting financial resources, or using sanctions. World peace is the concept of an ideal state of happiness, freedom, and peace among all nations on earth.
This should motivate leaders to cooperate. Different cultures, religions, philosophies, and organizations have varying concepts of how such a state would come about. World Peace Day has been observed on September 21 since 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly. The day was designated to prevent violence, and in 2013, it was dedicated to peaceful education to prevent war.
However, it troubles me that we have not seen any tangible results so far. World peace will come with good extensive training for all world leaders prior to participating in elections. The principal criteria are to participate—no matter what cultural background, religious doctrine, political affiliation, or age demographic. Anger and negative thinking cause wars and fighting. Leaders can live in peace and harmony if they become positive thinkers and love humanity. World peace would be simple if all leaders had basic training, understood what the public needs, and accepted their job as a calling. No one wants war except for a few crazy leaders. Everyone generally wants peace, respect, and cooperation. Human rights are broken routinely because of the lack of trust and desire for power that corrupt our leaders.
Various religious and secular organizations have the stated aim of achieving world peace through addressing human rights, technology, education, engineering, medicine, or diplomacy. Since the twentieth century, there have been two world wars with a staggering loss of approximately 115 million people. The League of Nations failed to prevent World War II. The UN and the Security Council’s goals created afterward were an improvement, but they had glaring issues. There have been many conflicts, and we may be going down the road toward World War III. A new independent global leadership designed to train the next generation of leaders is important.
This organization will have input from many countries, and a general training regimen and selection criteria will be created. This will help create camaraderie among leaders. The book has been a long journey. I hope readers can come away with some ideas for how we can shape global leaders. Many political systems have come and gone. Many of these systems have focused on reining in the excesses of human avarice with checks and balances. My view is that we need to be better, be individuals of upright character, and be morally responsible. If we develop this by having gratitude and a sense of responsibility to a UOP or God, the world will move toward peace. As a people, we are ultimately responsible for our destinies.
I realize that these ideas are not in their final form, and I am open to refining these ideas with experts and working on implementing these ideas. My goal is to start a conversation because as time moves on, more problems will arise. As a concerned citizen of the world, I fear a day will come when I must pay for all the mistakes of our corrupt leaders. Together, I hope we can prevent that from happening and create a more just and peaceful world.
