It’s been 2 or 3 weeks since the epiphany (that was first written in September 2012): plenty of time to go off the boil, forget what I thought, or just give up. But I haven’t. So here goes.
A plan has been put together, initial domain names are registered, and the installation of the blog, forum and wiki begun. I have a number of articles sitting in text files ready to be uploaded.
Now I just need to get on and fill in the details, then start the marketing of the two ideas.
- No New Wars. We do not need to start wars to solve the world’s problems any more. There are better alternatives to resolving problems than using our tax money to kill people including innocent civilians. Let’s explore those options and ensure our politicians, civil servants and media are aware of them, and make sure these alternatives are used instead.
- Eleven-Eleven-Twenty-Eighteen. The Great War, the “War to end all Wars” finished on 11th November 1918. In just a few years we will have had 100 years’ experience to learn from that horror. Long enough to know better. So let’s get a commitment from the politicians in our own country that we will not let them start any new wars as from 11/11/2018. We do this as individuals by telling our own elected and hopeful candidates, and the media, that this is a number one priority for for us and that if their party approves starting a war, or they personally vote for war, we will NEVER vote for them nor their party ever again. That is, if they individually or jointly try to start a war, it will cost them their political career for life.
