Looking back, from 1945 to 2019, has our world made much progress? Yes, our science and technology, medicine, education, material richness, internet and many other aspects of life, are constantly improving. However according to the data of the United Nations, only some of the world's population, in developed countries, can enjoy these advanced achievements.
Since World Wars ended, the world could have enjoyed a century of peace but due to human weaknesses, greed and power struggles, political immaturity leading to further invasive military conflicts and civil wars, man made disasters continue to haunt us. The death toll is shockingly large. It totalled more than the death toll from the two World Wars combined. The fact is really chilling.
Moreover current existing military conflicts have created more than 70 million homeless refugees, fleeing and drifting around the world, apart from suffering the destruction of their families and homes, they are living in hell like environments. Do we really think of them when we live comfortably in peaceful and luxurious environment? Has anyone ever considered helping to investigate and solve these man-made disasters?
In addition, the UNOCHA data shows that more than 94 million people are living in extreme poverty, facing various natural disasters, such as floods, typhoons and fires etc and tens of millions of ordinary people are still living on one to two US dollars a day with lack of nutrition and medical services, so they could easily died of starvation and illnesses. Many of these are caused by political mismanagement and turmoil.
We should not try to blame anyone but we should explore the root causes so that tomorrow can be better for our poor brothers and sisters no matter where they live in this world.
Everyone wants to live a good life , in peace and contentment just like the people living in developed countries.
According to research by Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, in 2019 , the defence spending of all countries in the world, adds up to a staggering US 1822Billion. Research shows that if we use US 1822 billion wisely, we could help to settle all refugees, millions of poor people living in poverty and those who suffer from man made and natural disasters and more.
They can all live a healthy and happy life like us in the developed countries.
We in developed countries emphasize that everyone should be born with equality, freedom, fraternity and happiness.
We are taught to
respect , help, tolerate and accept one another living together in a multicultural world.
We have to learn to solve our disputes and differences through dialogue and International Rules of Laws and communicate with one another for peace and shared prosperity.
We have to learn to enjoy one another's company so that we can all live a beautiful, happy , peaceful life.
Some would say the idealism is just a dream, a fantasy, but through proper education, I believe that the civilization of humanity and peace of the world will eventually prevail. This is the biggest challenge for mankind in 2020 and beyond! We might not be able to achieve it now but we can make a start and hope our future generations will continue to take up the challenges. I am confident one day The World Appeal for Peace will be realized under the great Charter of United Nations and the fair and just rule of International Laws.
Finally I wish you all the best in your undertaking in 2020 and please join me to promote The World Appeal for Peace with blessings from Heaven.
