Eliminating War


Man created war and is now trapped in his own creation. Somebody told me that, a long, long time ago. The person who told me that believes that there’s no way men can escape this game once it’s set in motion. I used to agree with that opinion.

Not anymore. Not after I heard about an unhistorical idea conceived by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, when he was still a shinobi serving Oda Nobunaga. Unhistorical? Yes, it was said by Toyotomi in a gekika manga created by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima, Path Of The Assassin, the story of Hattori Hanzō, the master ninja whose duty it was to protect Tokugawa Ieyasu.




The idea was actually very simple it’s brilliant. To rid the world of war completely, men do not really need to try to hold on to peace. Trying it will only create a situation we’ve already k experienced before, and that’s what we called Cold War. Trying to keep the peace forced us into a sort of global Mexican stand-off called MAD (Mutual Assured Destruction). Both sides take the idea that if you want peace (and to maintain it) you have to be ready to go to war. That will work up to some degree, provided both sides are led by level-headed sane leader.

No sir, that’s not a good way to rid the world of war completely. Definitely not by trying to keep such a forced peace. Instead, men need a totally new general rule of war.

We are all aware that in a war it is the soldiers who fight in the front, led by their officers, with the generals planning the steps behind them, and the supreme leaders waiting and giving orders from their castles. Like flies, the soldiers are the first to die. That’s the general rule of war.

Now, what if all supreme leaders of each nation in the world are to agree to an agreement that in any war it have to be the supreme leaders of each party who fight first? And when the supreme leaders fall, it is the turn of the generals of both sides to fight each others? And when the generals die off, it is the turn of the senior officers to fight? And after all the senior officers of both sides bite the dust, it is the turn of the junior officers of both sides to fight each others? And the soldiers are the last to go to war after all the officers and NCOs are gone for good?

Very likely, when the soldiers are the only ones left to fight (and of course their numbers are far greater than all the supreme leaders, generals, senior officers, junior officers and NCOs put together), they already lost the reason to go to war. Why? It’s simply because a war is always started by the supreme leaders, no matter what their excuses are.


This idea is very simple it’s brilliant. Unfortunately, it’s also too sane for this insane world.
