I do have a thought. Please forgive me if it is not very original. But, anyhow, I still think it has some possibilities.
The idea I want to have looked over is this:
The 200 most important political and military persons in each superpower should be required to provide one family member who could act as a hostage by living inside the other superpower. Thus, every powerful politician or general would have one family member.
I claim this might be arranged easily, is really quite inexpensive, and I believe it has the potential of putting the world in a different frame of mind. It might make nuclear war seem out-of-the-question to all.
The hostages--maybe one can find better word--could be children or grandchildren or perhaps nephews and nieces. We could afford to have excellent schooling for the hostages, for the number involved would be very moderate.
I admit is a gimmick. However, it seems to me to be a gimmick with more than the usual protection for the dollar.
Improvements welcome, of course.
Thank you for asking me. I plan to send this immediately. If I have more ideas I will send them later.
Say hello to BJ. June sends her best.
