A plan to end poverty and bring World Peace

I've learned that World Peace and ending poverty are actually the same goal. The two go hand in hand. The same thing is needed to accomplish both, and neither can be accomplished without it.

The people are the true power of any nation. The leaders must to some extend do the will of the people. Even a cruel dictator must to some extend do the will of the people. So, if the people hate, the nation makes wars, and its children die. If the people love, the nation has peace.

How can a nation with a 2 billion dollar defense budget defend itself against a nation with a 700 billion dollar budget? There is only one way, and that is to make the people of that nation refuse to allow that war.

We need to accomplish two things to make this work. One is that small nation will need to give a billion dollars, or half of its defense budget, to my project to help end world poverty. That money must have maximum efficiency in its poverty reduction effect, and I have just the project for that.

The problem is, the other thing. I can not do this without the support of the people. That, I need help on. How do I get the support I need.

Once one country does this, other countries will see how smart it is, and they will start to do it too. Soon, every country will stop making weapons, "and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. "

Anyway, here's a link to my new video, which might help you understand. It's called A New Hope for Mankind.

  • Nov 8 2013: Poverty is product both for non-profit and profit organizations.For non-profit organisations it is an evergreen cow to milk endlessly and for ever.And for profit organisation it is opportunity to get recognition and win social awards. For some people it is profession.There are more that 60 lac non profit organisations in India who claim to be engaged in the eradication of the proverty.

    Now,imagine that if the poverty has been eradicated all of a sudden , then what would happen to those organizations who are engaged in the process of poverty eradication program. Many organizations will become defunct and many people will become jobless . And again creating a set of poor people. But,Don't worry poverty will never be eradicated.
