Surely, there must be some way that the great minds who influence our international community can come together and solve issues that relate to war and peace--especially the glaring issues such as getting all countries to sign up to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and coming up with strategy and implementation so that every country in the NPT feels that verification is solid and fair for every country with nuclear capacity. An all-watching-all-and-working-with-all effort. Why not have an "Olympics" or "World Cup" of the mind for such urgent tasks? Something much larger than that already tried by individual nations, organizations, or even the U.N. needs to be attempted. Perhaps the great ideas for these kinds of problems just can't surface above the "noise." Let the "common man" in on this contest as well. These problems take the souls, minds, and hearts of all to fix.
