A Plan for Peace

A Plan for Peace

We as students, must realise that a cynical acceptance of conscription in N.Z. is not enough. We have a duty to ourselves and to NZ to work for a better solution—to demand a more worthwhile solution.

I list some suggestions.

1.A rejection by the NZ people and Government of conscription or any form of war expenditure or preparation.
2.A more honest and detached appraisal of international affairs by our Press and—
3.A more tolerant and positive attitude by our own representatives on international bodies.
4.Active dissemination of peace propaganda showing the probable wreckage of another war and the vital necessity of mutual international co-operation.
5.Set up our, own Ministry of Peace—in replacement of the Ministry of Defence.

Some nation, somewhere, sometimes must lead the way into permanent peace and international cooperation.

Why not now before it is too late and why not NZ?
