The prevailing world reality is, for sure, so frightening. The civilization and technological achievement of man - instead of becoming an instrument to erase poverty, ignorance and related grave problems - is turning to a means of universal destruction.
This is the dark side of scientific revolution. Science has almost no moral principles. It will serve a Hitler almost as well as it will serve a free democracy, enough to create terrible dangers. And science has given us the atom and a hilltop view of the end of the world.36
Huge accumulation of them is in the hands of some governments; others are still secretly, devising to acquire. In the COLD WAR37, amassing was justifiable; but in the absence of EAST-WEST Global division-retaining the stockpile or string to acquire is not only meaningless, but condemnable !! As a single spark may start a prairie fire (Mao Tse Tung), no good reason at any time might trigger the use of these strategic weapons. Of course, the fear of world children!
This is the reality and the truth; all must insist on it.38
These weapons deny the world-lasting peace and security, but both are pre-requisites for the realization of meaningful development.
Botswana's former prime Minister Ketumile Masire said peace and security are the least the people of Africa ask from their political leaders.39
... The sanctity of the celebrated maxim stands out: "Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom40" But-the cry for FREEDOM alone has become outdated; the two billion world children have rung the alarm-bell that it's the basis of freedom - mankind - that is endangered!
So, each generation must, out of relative obscurity, discover its mission, fulfill it, or betray it.41
The U.N. with its charter of 111 Articles, could not be in a position to fulfill the objectives for which it was founded; one of the major obstacles being the charter itself. The Global reality during which and for which it was framed by and large do differ from the present; hence - up-dating the charter to this effect has become an absolute necessity.
For instance, the interpretation of Article 2(7), which prohibits the UN from intervening in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction - has remained highly controversial both in the United Nations and among scholars. The various mutually inconsistent constructions that have been placed upon it have left the entire field in a state of chaotic fragmentation.42
Therefore, overhauling the UN charter might enable the already existing, experienced and tested world establishment to shoulder additional, responsibilities, and also discharge its duties in a proper and efficient way.
In fact, there can be no absolute guarantee that any organization on earth could surely prevent a third great war and the possible suicide of the human race43 for everything depends on the willingness of world powers and Governments.
Finally, such 'ENFORCEABLE INTERNATIONAL LAW' which is forethought by the students of City Montessori School (CMS) of India is said to provide a safe future for children, born and yet to be born; it is also believed that not only children, but mankind is to benefit from.
I also submit that such a unique idea should be accorded sufficient publicity through U.N. and its Agencies; N.G.O.s and the Governments which participate in the 4th INTERNATIONAL CONFRENCE OF CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE WORLD.
"Let the better always come out victor over the worse.44
I appreciate all the efforts of the Government of India.
