IN ORDER TO END ALL WARS, RACISM, PREJUDICE, BIGOTRY, CLASSISM, CITY-STATE AND NATION-STATE DISPUTES, TERRORISM, AND PROBLEMS AMONG NEIGHBORS, WE PROPOSE THE FOLLOWING:
The Department of Neighborhood Babies:
Every citizen will be mandated to babysit his/her assumed enemy’s babies and/or children for one year before allowed to kill, maim, impose sanctions on, or starve assumed enemy people. This goes for all people.
Babysitting will have to be carried out by males and females of the people of proposed aggravated attack and with strict supervision. This will apply between nation states, city-states, neighborhoods, and small villages.
Babysitting will take place at least two hours a month, while the baby or child is awake. This will apply first to all army personnel, then larger mafias and gangs, and at its least, to neighbors who just don’t like each other and may do something like cause legal action to get them out of your neighborhood. The same may be proposed for potential gentrification of poorer neighborhoods.
If there are no babies or children involved or existing between aggravated parties, then the aggravated parties will be forced to share a meal, coffee, tea, or times of such celebration at least for two hours a month, with shared monetary coverage.
If a party is planning on using rocks or smaller weapons against proposed enemy, the time to babysit or celebrate may fluctuate based on amount of proposed damage. Otherwise one year of babysitting two hours a month will be the normal sentence. The larger the proposed aggravation and attack, the longer the babysitting hours will be.
This should curb the need for violence, aggravated assault, and smaller battles based on acquisition of territory or violent resolution.
There could be babies or children in the way, you see.
