15th May 2023, Madrid/Spain  -  Wishes 16 / 17 / 18

In the name of Peace and Justice.

I have three wishes today, which I present to you in the name of Peace and Justice - in the hope they may be fulfilled.

My wishes today are again about the United Nations Organization, the biggest and most important international organization today, which is meant to guarantee peace and security in the world.

What is the biggest threat to peace and security in the world today?

Obviously, it is the existence of nuclear arms. Nuclear arms are so powerful they can destroy all life on earth.

Historically speaking, humans have kept developing ever more powerful and lethal weapons - and of course using them. There is no point in developing weapons and not using them.

Now, what comes after the destruction of all life on earth? Of course you can imagine the development of even more powerful weapons that can actually break up and pulverize the whole planet - which somehow is absurd and ridiculous because when everything is dead, what more damage do you want to do? Pulverize dead bodies? When everybody and everything is dead, there is nobody around to take any more action.

That's as far as we could go. And we've gone too far already. It's time to say, enough is enough, we've gone too far, it's time to take at least one step back.

It is my wish that humanity take a step back.

It is my wish that humanity decides that we want to get rid of all nuclear arms - not in ten or fifty or a hundred years time, but NOW.

I'm asking the UN Secretary-General to invite the ten nuclear powers of today - the USA, UK, France, Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, India, Pakistan, Israel - to sit together and reach a common agreement as to the elimination and destruction, once and for all, of all existing nuclear arms.

Obviously, that won't be easy. It will need a whole range of supplementary agreements as to mutual security provisions and so on. But it's all doable, if we decide to do so.

And it won't be enough. We have to do more to safeguard Peace on earth.

We need a Peace Army.

A permanent standing UN Peace Army, to keep peace, and to enforce peace.

This is my second wish for today.

Up to now, the UN has had very limited resources and opportunities to intervene militarily in the case of conflict, in order to protect civilians and maintain security in vulnerable regions. What's more, the budget for peace-keeping actions is really very low. This has to change.

In the long run, the UN Peace Army has to replace national armies. The fact is: We don't want armies at all, all armies, the world over, have to be dismantled and discarded. In Paradise, we don't want any armies. In this sense, the UN Peace Army can only serve as an intermediate step, to slowly replace national armies, only to be gradually dismantled itself.

So, once again I'm asking the UN Secretary-General to take the initiative and convene a special session of the UN General Assembly to discuss the matter and decide on the establishment of a PERMANENT UN Peace Army.

Which of course begs the question of its financing.

OK, then, let me present my third wish for today, about the financing of our new permanent standing UN Peace Army.

My suggestion is that, in the first year, every nation in the world contribute one percent of its average annual national defense budget (military/police/security) to our new UN Peace Army - "average" meaning, let's say, the average of all money spent for defense matters over the past ten years.

In the second year, this contribution will be increased to two percent of the average last ten-years' defense budget - with an additional one percent every following year, until we reach a contribution of 100 percent in a hundred years time. This will normally be the time when national armies will have become totally obsolete, and  be fully replaced be a hugely efficient professional UN Peace Army which will guarantee Peace and security throughout the world.

Speaking in numbers: Total worldwide military spending in 2020 was apparently somewhere around USD 2 trillion. One percent of 2 trillion is 20 billion. 20 bn corresponds to Brazil's annual defense spending, the country being ranked number 17 on the list of military expenditure worldwide.

By comparison: The total UN peace-keeping budget 2020 was somewhere around USD 8 bn - so, the new one-percent contribution would already be a very welcome increase.

The USA spent somewhere around USD 780 bn in the same year.

In 40 years, with all nations contributing 40 percent of their average annual defense spendings, our new UN Peace Army can count on a budget of some USD 800 bn. This will certainly guarantee a most effective possible use.


Such is my third wish for today, which I present to you in the name of Peace and Justice, in the hope it will be fulfilled.

In the name of Peace and Justice, thank you!
