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: Most of the poverty programs are designed not to eradicate poverty, but to boost the ego of donation givers , charity doers.Donation and Charity will never eradicate poverty, but the Attitude of sharing will do somthing.Poor people have to be educated , not the current process of education. But the education that changes their way of thinking and attitude.Poor people are constantly reminded through various means that they are poor , they are poor and only way to elevate their status is to give them everything free.And the poor people believe that those who have abundance of things have been given to them(not poor people) free by someone else or may God.
