Considering that the nuclear powers have led us at various occasions to the brink of the abyss of war which would destroy hundreds of millions of human beings;
RecallingArticle 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, according to which
Everyone has a right to life, liberty and security of person.
Considering,too, that the leading nations are spending about 120 000 000 000 dollar annually on such weapons of mass-destruction, while one third of the peoples of the world go hungry, and
RecallingArticle 25 of the Universal Declaration of the Human Rights that
Everyone has a right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family...
Convincedthat, although the desire of the people in all nations for security is common sense, but seeking it on a national level causes a threat to all those people which are excluded from the “security through strength” measures of a particular nation, or group of nations (collective defense policy), and
Convincedthat, although we need governments in order to effectuate security through law and order among individuals, today, only on authority of the people and their states would be in the position to secure the inalienable rights of men and could guarantee security for the civil population throughout the world, and
Convincedthat it has become a question of survival of the human race to establish this key instrument for a world without war as soon as possible,
Supports the aim of the WORLD DISTRICT AGENCY to study and prepare a project of the peoples of the world as following:
The regional development of a
WORLD FEDERAL DISTRICT,
preferably located in a geographical position within equal distance from the main centers of the continents; to plan and to build within this World Federal District a
WORLD-CITY FOR PEACE
as an acceptable site for a
WORLD PEACE-KEEPING MACHINERY;
Convincedthat this new instrument for World Security requires the same kind of legislative, executive and judicial institutions on a world scale as the experience of centuries has shown to be necessary for the maintenance of internal order in local communities and within nations,
this plan must provide the building of the following institutions:
(1) The World Parliament;
(2) The office of the Executive body;
(3) The Federal World Courts of Justice;
(4) The Headquarters of the World Federal Police;
(5) Other institutions which would best serve on a world level for the common interests of the peoples of the world and states;
Bearing in mindthat Morocco is geographically in a central position to all continents and that this part of the world has a favorable climate for the majority of the peoples,
Requests the Government of Morocco for the cause of Humanity to consider this plan for action and
RequeststheGovernment of Morocco to accept the proposal of the World District Agency within a reasonable period of time to discuss this project in details upon the presentation of a first study, based on the area of the Province of Tangier, which could be made available after the Government of Morocco has indicated its interest in this plan for peace.

284 The means to real peace. -
No government nowadays admits that it maintains an army so as to satisfy occasional thirsts for conquest; the army is supposed to be for defence. That morality which sanctions self-protection is called upon to be its advocate. But that means to reserve morality to oneself and to accuse one‘s neighbour of immorality, since he has to be thought of as ready for aggression and conquest if our own state is obliged to take thought of means of self-defence; moreover, when our neighbour denies any thirst for aggression just as heatedly as our State does, and protests that he too maintains an army only for reasons of legitimate self-defence, our declaration of why we require an army declares our neighbour a hypocrite and cunning criminal who would be only too happy to pounce upon a harmless and unprepared victim and subdue him without a struggle. This is how all states now confront one another: they presuppose an evil disposition in their neighbour and a benevolent disposition in themselves. This presupposition, however, is a piece of inhumanity as bad as, if not worse than, a war would be; indeed, fundamentally it already constitutes an invitation to and cause of wars, because, as aforesaid, it imputes immorality to one‘s neighbour and thereby seems to provoke hostility and hostile acts on his part. The doctrine of the army as a means of self-defence must be renounced just as completely as the thirst for conquest. And perhaps there will come a great day on which a nation distinguished for wars and victories and for the highest development of military discipline and thinking, and accustomed to making the heaviest sacrifices on behalf of these things, will cry of its own free will: ,we shall shatter the sword‘ - and demolish its entire military machine down to its last foundations. To disarm while being the best armed, out of anelevation of sensibility - that is the means to real peace, which must always rest on a disposition for peace: whereas the so-called armed peace such as now parades about in every country is a disposition to fractiousness which trusts neither itself nor its neighbour and fails to lay down its arms half out of hatred, half out of fear. Better to perish than to hate and fear, and twofold better to perish than to make oneself hated and feared - this must one day become the supreme maxim of every individual state! - As is well known, our liberal representatives of the people lack the time to reflect on the nature of man: otherwise they would know that they labour in vain when they work for a ,gradual reduction of the military burden‘. On the contrary, it is only when this kind of distress is at its greatest that the only kind of god that can help here will be closest at hand. The tree of the glory of war can be destroyed only at a single stroke, by a lightning-bolt: lightning, however, as you well know, comes out of a cloud and from on high. (R.J.
