An idea worth spreading
Armed Conflicts in the world arise for various reasons but are fuelled by the oversupply of weapons/ammunition.Thus there is the commercial imperative to create/facilitate conflict so that there is a market/demand for these goods.Thus if there is going to be a minimal conflict world (it is naive to assume a utopian world with no conflcts!), world leaders (particularly United Nations) will have to find a solution to find an outlet for these industries without actually producing these destructive items. e.g. Gun Barrel makers can produce thick wall tubing for gas/oil industries; Tank/armored vehicle manufacturers can make high ground clearance heavy vehicles etc.One has to be realistic to ensure that the production facilities for such items remain available to revert back to produce military items at short notice if the world situation so requires it. As the income from such production might not match what weapon/ammunition sales generates, UN might have to subsidise such manufacturers.
I'm passionate about
Delivering results/outcomes in whatever area of undertaking overcoming obstacles.
Talk to me about
Innovations that help the human race at large.
