One world means there is no need for such big armies. Maybe a small police force is enough – just for hooligans, Mafia, small gangs of criminals. But there is no need for nuclear weapons, atomic plants, and no need for millions of people simply go on polishing their guns.
The poverty can be so easily eradicated. If we can create one world government, then we can create the World Academy of Sciences. So all the scientists of the world, who are right now in the service of death, can be put in the service of life.
There is no need to go to the moon. When the earth is starving, you are wasting billions of dollars to go to the moon – for what?
Whenever I think the first man standing on the moon, I always think he must have thought, “What the hell I am doing here? It is good that nobody is seeing. Otherwise I must be looking silly. There is nothing to see.”
And so much effort, so much science, so much technology for something utterly useless.
A world academy of sciences will put all the efforts into producing better food, more food, better fruits, new fruits. In Soviet Russia they have done some crossbreeding between fruits: apple crossbreed with lemon. A new fruit which has never been in existence, with a new taste.
You can create thousands of new fruits, new crops, new food.
You can make this earth a paradise without any difficulty. All that is needed that the worship of death should be stopped. The possibility of war should be completely eliminated. The humanity is one, hence there is no question of war.
National governments can exist, but they will be only functional because they won’t have any armies. They will be just like post office, railway board.
Nobody cares who is the head postmaster general. There is no need to know about him. All that is needed is that you receive your post in right time. It is a functional thing.
As nations lose their war machines, politicians lose their significance. They should disappear from the first pages of newspapers, televisions, radios. They have no need to be there. Those pages should be given to the creators: musicians, poets, people who have done something to make life more richer, more glorious – mystics, those who have opened doors of new mysteries of consciousness.
Right now everything is simply insane.
And it can be put right very easily. Only the intelligentsia of the world has to stand up courageously and say that, “Now it is time. That we don’t want any nations. That we don’t want any passports and we don’t want any visas. This whole earth is ours.”
There are countries where people are dying without food. In America thirty million people are dying by overeating. Now, this is incomprehensible. These thirty million people in a world which is dying with hunger are simply psychologically sick.
And they are also dying, because they are eating too much.
