"Your idea is a great idea, worth launching on the ... 3rd millennium." (Robert Muller, Former Assistant U.N. Sec.-Gen. and Chancellor, University for Peace, Costa Rica - see letter)
(Das war allerdings vor dem Start von UNFOR 2007, betraf aber im wesentlichen die gleichen Ziele!)

I like the ideas proposed by Dr. Klaus Schlichtmann to the Permanent Representative of Germany to the UN, namely to include in UN reform the proposal that nation-states would limit their national sovereignty in favor of "a United Nations security sovereignty". He cites as a first step in this direction the provision in the Japanese Constitution abolishing war as a sovereign right of the nation. The subject should be inscribed on the agenda of the UN upgrading as we enter a new century and millennium. (Idea 1315 ~ 15 February 1998 ~ http://www.robertmuller.org/volume/ideas1001.html)
Robert Muller (portrait)
Wherever in the world there is a major peace initiative, a peace conference, or a new initiative for international cooperation, the name of Robert Muller is often encountered. Born in Belgium in 1923, and raised in the Alsace-Lorraine region of France, Robert Muller experienced constant political and cultural turmoil during his youth. Often as a child he would look out his window at the border he could not cross, and long for the day when he, like the birds, would no longer have to observe that imaginary line.
Joining the UN in 1948, Robert Muller rose through the ranks to the position of Assistant-Secretary-General. He was one of the main architects of the UN institutional system in the economic and social fields. He was the main idea person and trusted collaborator of three Secretary-Generals, and has been called the philosopher and prophet of hope of the United Nations.
After 38 years of behind the scenes work at the United Nations, he emerged as one of the foremost peace-makers of our time. His inspiration and optimism have given hope to innumerable people around the world through his actions, idealism, and uplifting speaking and writings. He is a role model to his international colleagues, and he is the hero to innumerable young people because of his total devotion to the good of humankind. Robert Muller is an outstanding world servant whose deep love of all humanity and this planet merit serious consideration and recognition through every possible means.
Now in active “retirement", he resides in Santa Barbara and Costa Rice where he is Chancellor Emeritus of the University for Peace. He can often be found at his own “bench of dreams” (where?), or up on the hills overlooking the University of Peace.
A devoted grandfather to eight grandchildren, he still is able to concentrate on his lifelong efforts promoting human understanding and global awareness through his books, correspondence and occasional speaking engagements. His world core curriculum is embraced by more and more schools around the globe, and earned him the 1989 UNESCO Education Peace Prize. In 1993 he received the Albert Schweitzer International Prize for the Humanities, and in 1994 he received the Eleanor Roosevelt Man of Vision Award. He is fully behind a UNO Reform 2007.

Human, All too Human
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. Hollingdale, transl., Human, All Too Human. A Book for Free Spirits, Cambridge Texts in the History of Philosophy (1996), pp. 380-81)
