World Peace Is Possible!
This plan has been created using two books: ‘Peace Within Our Grasp’ by Crandall R. Klineand ‘How To Achieve World Peace’ by Jim Des Rocher.
The Basics
1. International Laws Implemented By The United Nations
International laws which ensure people’s basic human rights and the prevention of war are adhered to, will do much to prevent world peace. These will be particularly effective if an international police force/ military made up of the U.N. member’s militaries would workto enforce these laws by arresting people who break them and defending any countryunder attack from another.
2. Departmentalise The United Nations
The United Nations could be organised in departments to ensure the rights of all peopleare adhered to.International Criminal CourtDefence DepartmentInternal Affairs DepartmentEnvironmental DepartmentHumanitarian DepartmentReligious Council
3. Religious Teachings For World Peace
The morals of people are greatly influenced by religions. Religions can further promotepeaceful living and the U.N. laws of defence only. They can also teach religioustolerance and condemn anyone who tries to enforce their religion on another.
4. Empathy Lessons
Racial and religious hatred causes many wars. Teaching people to respect all groups of people and managing conflicts would help to reduce wars and create a more peaceful,understanding world.
5. Ethical Diet
By going vegan or cutting down how much meat, eggs and milk you consume, you canhelp to alleviate world hunger. If we all lived off a vegan diet, there would be enough foodfor everyone and the effect of global warming would be significantly reduced.
International laws (to be enforced internationally)
The main aim of the current United Nations is to prevent wars. As long as a dictator keepstheir military within their country's borders, they can do whatever they like to the people of thatcountry. While this may help to prevent wars, it doesn't help the people who are denied their basic human rights within a dictatorship. The current U.N. looks after the world leaders asmembers of the U.N. and not the citizens.The U.N. has 32 humans rights articles but none of these have to be adhered to by anymembers of the U.N. Two of the most important human rights articles within the U.N. charter are:1. Freedom from slavery.2. The right for people to choose how they are governed.Many people of this world don't currently have these basic freedoms.
 
The U.N. can devise a number of international laws to ensure the human rights of all peopleare adhered to and wars can be prevented. Here’s an example of some international lawsthat would enable the rights of all people to be protected:
Selling weapons to other countries is illegal.
Nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction will be illegal. (1)
Harbouring international criminals will be illegal.
Disagreements between countries can be settled in the U.N. Internal AffairsDepartment instead of going to war. If the two countries cannot reach an agreement,a majority vote within the U.N. could be taken instead. (2)
All people have the right to choose their own religion and anybody who violates thisright will become an international criminal.
All people have the right to choose how they want to be governed and anybody whoviolates this right will become an international criminal. (3)
The U.N. has control over 25-50% of their members’ militaries in order to act as aninternational police force to arrest international criminals or to defend a country that isbeing invaded. (4)
Militaries can only be used to defend countries and can’t be used to attack. Militariescan be built up and prepared if a country is threatened by another.
Any world leader that goes to war against another country will become aninternational criminal. No civilian will be killed or harmed (including with sanctions) inthe process of capturing a world leader unless it is in self defence. World leaders willalso not be killed but captured using non-lethal weapons and tried at the InternationalCriminal Court accordingly. (5)
The U.N. Security Council has the authority to order the arrest and trial in theInternational Criminal Court of any leaders who violate U.N. laws. All nations mustaid in the capture and extradition, regardless of the nationality of the accused.
The U.N. shall make no laws that infringe on the rights described in this list or theDeclaration of Human Rights.
The U.N. has no other rights. All rights not listed here remain the rights of the nationalgovernments or their citizens. The U.N. shall make no laws not covered by this list of rights.This list is just a suggestion of laws that could be brought to the U.N. and there could be avote on these and any others that are likely to ensure world peace. With these laws,each country should still be able to maintain their unique nationality and culture but eachcitizen of these countries will also be ensured the right to live in peace and freedom.1. Nuclear weapons are one of the biggest threats to world peace. They threaten the livesof innocent civilians and as long as they are present, there is always the threat that aterrorist could get hold of one. All countries can gradually disarm their nuclear weapons afew at a time. If the U.N. Security Council were to keep just 5 nuclear weapons under tight security, this would prevent the risk of somebody creating new weapons and beingable to threaten countries with them.2. Internal Affairs Dept – This could be used for settling disputes between countries.Organisations such as Peace Grows Inc and the Centre for Applied ConflictManagement, currently train people for settling disputes and reaching compromises. If the staff of this department were trained in this way, they could help to settle disputesbetween countries to prevent war.3. People having the freedom to choose how they are governed, is a basic human right asstated in the U.N. Human Rights Articles. The U.N. can ensure this right is given to everyperson with an international law. Some countries may be divided as to how they want tobe ruled, particularly if they are of differing religions. In this case, democratic theocracycould be used. There could be one council overlooking two houses of congress. Eachhouse could represent what one group of people want. For example, Israel could haveone congress house which governs Muslims and another to govern Jews. Each housecould enforce laws according to the group of people they oversee and the one main
