We have been sent some very beautiful poems, songs and even a vision endorsing the concept of world peace. With all due respect to the talent and idealism of the people who sent them this is not what we want. Every sane person on the planet knows that world peace is a desirable state of affairs; we don't have to wax lyrical on it. What we need are comments on the practicality and logistics of what is being proposed so that we can have something concrete and practical that can be put on the tables of world leaders as something that will actually work.

Brilliant! loved the intro and clarity of the site and look forward to looking at it in more detail.Can I stick your website in a webring? my own notion of worldpeace can be assisted through the thought-experiment 2020worldpeace check out the website if you like. Would you be interested in a discussion conversation to compare models of how to achieve worldpeace realistically because I like your opening statement which is so bold: We believe that in this website lies the only real solution to the creation of World Peace. Brilliant! Thanks David Pinto, Teacher, Portugal.
Thanks for your support. Please feel free to promote this website anywhere you think it will help.
Global education leaders must be persuaded to teach a common language, (not
Thank you for raising an important issue: we haven't touched on language in this website, but one of the consideration in creating a universal army of the nature that we have described, is that the soldiers would all have to speak the same language if it was going to work effectively. This may or may not open the door for the large scale application of esparanto, which would be ideal for this military purpose, but it would definitely require all cadets/soldiers wishing to join this army in learning the same language, which no doubt would eventually trickle through to the rest of the world's affairs.
Your website is very interesting but my comment would be that you have your head in the clouds -Nanaya (assistant to the president of Ghana)
Thank you for saying what no doubt many others will think. There is nothing wrong at all with having your head in the clouds as long as the feet are kept firmly on the ground. We have tried to present a plan that can actually be implemented in fact; not an idle dream. As far as we can see, we have succeeded.
While I haven't read your entire website yet, I would respectfully suggest that at the very opening you left off the most important of the world's problems and the solution to world peace, namely, "Treating animals with respect!" This is veritably the pathway to world peace because it establishes the basic respect for life, without which we will never have world peace! Dr.Albert Schweitzer said it best: "Until he extends the circle of his compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace! If we also seriously consider the dictum of Socrates: "There is but one good, knowledge; there is but one evil, ignorance" we can come to recognize
I don't mean to rain on your parade, but people can never bring about world peace, desirable as it may be. All the reasonableness on the planet will never make world leaders agree on any given program. I say this because I too want world peace, but I have found a real solution and (in my opinion, as well as that of 7,000,000 others) the only realistic solution. Don't shut your mind to this next comment please, because I am talking about Bible prophesy. People tend to close their ears and minds when the Bible is mentioned and I'm hoping that you are not among those so disposed. The book of Daniel shows how the world leaders are merely
Thanks for your comment. We did include prayer for peace in our website, as you well know, a
I hope I am not the only one, but it appears to me that all the 'problems' you list on your website are symptoms and not the real problem. I believe the real issue is that of a lack of connection with knowing who we really are. Once that is discovered and understood by all of humanity the other 'problems' will cease to exist - Dave Miller
Thank you for your comment. What do you think would be the greatest and most difficult challenge: to enlighten the whole world or to set up a temporary security system while we are waiting for that to happen? It's the first isn't it! It is our intention that the army that we intend to create to uphold world peace would also of necessity be an institution that educated its members to 'know who they really are' and thus contribute to the enlightenment of the world. We do not believe that its services as a peace keeping institution would be required forever, however we would hope for it to exist indefinitely as an institution of education, training (in health and martial arts) and enlightenment.
Hi Great Idea I really like it, after all what could be better than world peace through a huge military with bases everywhere and a monopoly on the use of violence. I can't see anything that could go wrong there. Count me in!
While it is very clear that this joker did not trouble himself to read the website before he submitted his comment, I am actually very grateful to him for drawing attention to what would be the greatest potential danger of this undertaking - it falling into the wrong hands of an incorrectly principled leadership. The website pages that deal with this problem are: 4):The Crucial Point and 5):The Set Up.
I like the idea you are promoting, but I want to introduce you to another solution that I believe to be easier to achieve. Research shows that the 'Super radience' effect created by groups of specially trained meditators ahve created periods of peace both globally and in specific locations over the last thirty years.

Kind regards Jeremy Old
We are very happy to post your comment on our website and to endorse its content. We have made a similar assertion on the page: Program for Peace
I like your ideas and commitment but as a country's military is one of its key pillars to maintain its sovereignty, none will be ready to give it up, ever. The best way I feel is through education. Conflict is born of poverty and ignorance, the best way out is through education, and when I say education I mean secular education.
I'll finish reading your website in detail and I'll see what I can do to help.
Regards, Richard, Ex-soldier.
Thank you for your interest and comment. What we hope we are offering here is an alternative means for countries to maintain their sovereignty without further need of national armies. You are perfectly correct that it will be a tough nut to crack. One possible solution could be for citizens to make sure that their leaders have adequate sexual equipment before voting them into power so that they don't have to compensate for any lack in that department by wanting bigger and better armies and weapons. National armies are not something national leaders are going to give up easily, but this is the major sacrifice everyone has to make to establish a permanent and enduring peace. The will to achieve it will not come from the top but from the bottom, the will of the masses at grass-roots level is the force that will overcome any power-tripping leadership's erroneous ideas of national pride. For this reason the most important thing is for the masses to fully grasp the ideas that are presented here and to take them to heart, and the best help that anyone can give this cause is to spread the word at all levels.
