REALITY SHOW FOR PEACE
Today’s challenge asks if you could produce a reality show, what would be your topic. Thought at first it was a frivolous topic but bent my mind around it to make it less frivolous. My reality show would be Fighting for World Peace. The world leaders would be the participants. There would be various peace making tasks, a gong eliminating dirty tricksters and mis-information. The reward would a world peace treaty that would be based on the various statements of human rights that few leaders currently follow. The losers would lose the power to control armies. There would be a combination of judges and audience voting to decide the winner.
By the way, once upon a time wars were decided by one-on-one combat between the leaders of the opposing foes. A better way than our current collateral damage way.
Enjoyed this fantasy; also know it is a fantasy as too many power brokers would not play because of the mis-information and dirty tricks clauses.
The real differences around the world today are not between Jews and Arabs; Protestants and Catholics; Muslims, Croats, and Serbs. The real differences are between those who embrace peace and those who would destroy it; between those who look to the future and those who cling to the past; between those who open their arms and those who are determined to clench their fists.
William J. Clinton
An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.
You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.
Peace hath higher tests of manhood than battle ever knew.
John Greenleaf Whittier
Five great enemies to peace inhabit within us: avarice, ambition, envy, anger, and pride.
