Ending the world of violence begins at grass-roots level

America does not need to continue blindly along the path that leads to war and more war. We have a choice.

Let us initiate a comprehensive program through the United Nations to include, for startups, the following seven points.

1. End starvation. This should mobilize the “haves” to provide food delivery and farming help to the “have-nots” worldwide.

2. Establish worldwide medical support to bring an end to diseases that tear down humanity’s wholeness.

3. Provide secure housing for all.

4. Intensify international devotion to rescuing the natural environment.

5. Completely eliminate all nuclear and bio-weaponry.

(And now here are the two most important principles.)

6. Persuade all citizens of all nations both male and female to participate in the world vision.

7. Build the total program from the bottom up. Encourage neighborhoods and family groupings to share together; to create support for the Big Picture. Let us talk with each other and listen to each other in new ways.

This is not first of all a plan run by politicians. It is for us, the grass-roots citizens, to make it work. The ending of violence in the world begins with us.
