< Previous Issue Higher Issue All Issues Next Issue >

What if you were put in charge of the World tomorrow? How would you run the planet?

If you have arrived onto this page from an external link or search engine, the material below will make no sense whatsoever unless you know why www.12-12-12.org was written. A very brief summary can be read by clicking here

This globally popular educational and research website lists every national and international problem in the world in a rather unusual and entertaining way, so remember to bookmark www.12-12-12.org in your favourites folder! For the record: Andronicos the author does not profess to greatness in any shape or form. Lets continue.................

Andronicos "The Great" as Director of the Human Race and Manager Planet Earth commands and Andronicos "The Cynic" responds as follows.........


I wish to honour the city of Melilla, Morocco. Under the guidance of its Spanish tribal authority, the mixed population of Muslims, Christians and Jews live with each other in peace. The children go to the same schools and learn to respect and enjoy each others religious festivals such as Ramadan, Navidad (Christmas) and Hanukkah. Let other city authorities learn from this excellent example.

Sikh     Christian     Muslim

I want all schools to teach the youngest pupils about the cultures of each others minority races, but not in the manner of a zoology lesson or merely the historic or religious technical aspects. Why do Sikhs wear turbans? Bring an unwrapped turban to school and get children to see how it's wrapped around the head of a respectful volunteer. Bring pastries or sweets to honour the culture of a special festival. Why is the Chinese New Year different? How is a giant paper dragon made? The children can help.

The best way local minority leaders can help children and cultures integrate, is to arrange for volunteers within their tribal community to visit schools in the region to explain why their strange customs are quite normal.

I commend universities that self-publish guidelines on how students should respect each others religions on campus. I direct all large schools should have such guidelines in place.

Subject to local laws and copyright issues, I direct movies such as Amistad and Schindler's List be available to teachers to show and use in junior High School history classes all over the World.

I suggest "One flew over the cuckoo's nest" would be a more appropriate movie to watch and be indicative of His Greatness.

It will take an average person 12 hours to read and understand the contents of this website and listen to 'The Speech'. Is one hour a day for 12 days too long? Why don't you email the www.12-12-12.org link to 12 of your friends and discuss their opinions in 12 days time? Maybe the 7th person in your email chain can break the secret code and the 12th person, may hold the key to World Peace. Are you or someone in your family the 7th or 12th person?
