Regarding an End to Militarism and WMD

Problems To Solve

The endangerment of all life on Earth through the constant striving of nation states to gain the upper economic hand using (or threatening to use) militarism or weapons of mass destruction. This is frequently a consequence of:
  • A thriving military-industrial-congressional complex
  • War-profiteering by those with a neoliberal agenda who infiltrate government institutions
  • Individualistic materialism (i.e. moral immaturity) that justifies individual and collective aggression
  • Permeating “culture of violence” within entertainment, communities and institutions

Proposed Solutions

  1. Lead by example (attenuate international militarism and WMD development and stockpiles)
  2. Link the quality, orientation and extent of trade relations with international peers to their demonstrated societal moral development (inclusive of evidenced militarism and WMD development and stockpiling)
  3. Change the Constitution to reflect a two-stage direct democratic control over military budgeting and major military actions
  4. Create alternate, nonviolent, collectively binding mechanisms for conflict resolution, law enforcement, correctional institutions and international disagreements
