< 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.........


Cyprus is a small, pretty island in the Mediterranean Sea, populated by less than 1 million inhabitants. It is my ancestral home.

Here are my directions to resolve the Cyprus problem:

  • Cyprus should become one Federation made up of two tribal states. Each with their own Governor. A bit like the United States of America, with only two states or a bit like Britain (re. England and Scotland).
  • The constitution of both states and that of the Federal Republic of Cyprus to be created with the help of local tribal groups (Greece, Turkey) and neutral clubs (UN, EU).
  • The constitution of each of the two states may only be changed in the future by the majority vote of BOTH the two states.
  • The president of the country to be voted by regular national referendum, but his/her power shared using proportional representation.
  • The new federal constitution should forbid Cyprus from forming an Army, but allow national defense by Nato membership under Nato control in a merged Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot "army". This army may only be used in international peace keeping or humanitarian missions.
  • The Sovereign tribes of Greece whose CIA backed military junta and certain Cypriot factions in the 70s started the recent problems by trying to merge the state of Cyprus with Greece are directed to compensate Turkish Cypriots for loss of property and land since 1975. I also direct the Sovereign tribes of Turkey who compounded the problem by backing a policy of mass immigration from Turkey to Northern Cyprus, to likewise compensate Greek Cypriots for the loss of their properties and land. A neutral binding judicial process to undertake the above as quickly as possible. The funding (interest only) from the above to be found by way of a Special Bond created by Greece and Turkey, underpinned by the European Union. And a small increase in Cypriot VAT, income tax and departure tax from Cypriot airports to pay the capital repayment on this bond.
  • The Sovereign Tribes of Turkey to be allowed entry into the European Union as soon as qualification criteria has been met.
Undertake the above and watch a miracle happen.

Wow! That will definitely generate loads of money! Enough perhaps to pay for 4 small apartments and a goat field on both sides of the border. What about funding a settlement using all those undersea gas and oil reserves around Cyprus?
