Permanent World Peace

Criteria for Peace

  1. No more spending on new weapons for a 5 year time period. Only maintenance of existing weapons, so no change in military status quo
  2. All major countries join a world defence force under the banner of a highly improved United Nations infrastructure, and this would be called the World Peace Alliance
  3. 50% of money saved on new weapons expense (approximately US$407.5 billion per year – see Appendix point 1) goes back into the domestic budget of that particular country. The other 50% goes into a world defence/peace force, which funds humanitarian work in under-developed countries
  4. Approximately 50% of current defence troops (approximately 9 million personnel – see Appendix point 2) will work an interchangeable year in the Peace Force doing humanitarian work, whilst the other half maintains a military role to secure peace. These groups would rotate annually
  5. Interchange of high level military officers between nations to prevent arms cheating
  6. All finances controlled internally and externally by United Nations, under strict audit control, and nothing given directly to receiving nation’s government
  7. U.N. to organise three major world conferences for:
    • National Leaders
    • Religious Leaders of all major denominations
    • World Military Leaders
  8. Must abide by agreed rules of World Peace Alliance or arbitration of International Court of Justice
  9. All major countries such as the U.N. Security Council and G20 countries to join at same time, to provide strength and stability, plus reassurance
  10. If a country does not join, then as a last resort, a full economic blockade, (ie. no imports or exports) not military intervention, would be put in place until people power took control

Reasons Why Countries Would Join The World Peace Alliance

  1. Huge monetary saving of billions of dollars to help own domestic budget, only positive spending (see Appendix point 1)
  2. Guaranteed security and peace, as too militarily strong to fight
  3. Politically very popular with people power
  4. Very media friendly
  5. Popular vote catcher
  6. Leaders could be Nobel Peace Prize Recipients
  7. Poorer countries obtain enormous benefits to upgrade their standard of living
  8. Costing to implement peace plan not significant as United Nations infrastructure already present
  9. Slow reduction in arms requirements, especially nuclear
  10. Only countries in World Peace Alliance allowed to maintain Nuclear and Weapons of Mass Destruction, which will slowly be reduced over time to eventually zero
  11. Having English as a mandatory second language, to be taught in all World Peace Alliance countries, so in two decades there will be better communication between countries
  12. Shared responsibility of world security and not just left to a few countries. The face of war has changed, with unknown enemies, drones, etc and 99.999% of people do NOT want war

Reasons Why Countries Would Not Join The World Peace Alliance

  1. Certain loss of independence
  2. Dictatorship or military controlled government
  3. Loss of arms trade income (see Appendix point 3)
  4. Loss of jobs in armament industries that cannot be adapted to peace production
  5. Lack of trust in other countries

World Peace Alliance Bylaws

  1. This concept will only work with strict and enforceable laws
  2. Cheating in arms production will result in automatic suspension and economic blockade, causing people power revolution and political breakdown
  3. Political corruption/bribery will result in total removal of all assets from offenders. There will be no ‘Swiss’ Bank Accounts, and assets cannot be protected in any way, such as trusts, and extensive judicial penalties will be implemented
  4. A complete ‘Open Book’ situation must occur, with interchange of top ranking military and government officials, and all countries have access to each other
  5. Extensive international audits by U.N. will occur, and no money will be transferred to other countries unless it is specific for a project. All monetary transactions must be transparent and well documented, and sent only to the project and not to that country’s government. Funds cannot be spent unless authorised by U.N
