Cure for War.

The idea for this stems from the book: Mutant Message Down Under by Marlo Morgan and I’ve added some rules, just to play it safe. War is insanity, for whatever reason you think you need to enter into it. However, there will always be wards, for the simple reason that a lot of people are insane.

If for whichever misguided reasons a group of people decide that they do need to start a war, then let us lay down some ground rules.

The duration of the first battle of the war shall take a grand total of five minutes, after which each party takes home their deceased loved ones to be put to rest and to mourn them and this for a period of one month.

After this admittedly short mourning period, the soldiers and the politicians have to(obligation!) spend eleven months living among the mourning families of their opponents, but in total peace. In other words, the miscreants are forced to live through the consequences of their actions.

After one year has elapsed, everyone goes home to decide whether to have another five minutes of war. Should we stick to these rules, how long do you think the notion and practice of war would remain in existence?
