Here is a picture of Spy vs. Spy from the long running comic strip in Mad Magazine. It reflects nation vs. nation. Is this the best we can do? Our global community is now spending more than 1 trillion dollars a year on military spending. Unite is not saying that military is unneeded. It is needed. What Unite asks is how can we construct an international social order based on the rule of law instead of the rule of war so that we can reduce expenditures and shift them to better forms of security such as mutual well-being?
Existence is fragile when it’s being lived at arm’s length. Europe has gone a long ways to show that it’s possible to have a handshake without a bomb in the other. Unite brings people, businesses and governments to the table together, not so they end disagreements, humans will also disagree, but so they can find a better way to diffuse and resolve disagreements.
