The Salina Journal Sunday, February 2,1986 Page 28 Writers' road to peace littered with remains of humanity WASHINGTON (AP) - Would nuclear conflict between India and Pakistan persuade mankind to forsake its warlike ways? Would environmental catastrophe force cooperation between the superpowers? How about an exchange of hostages? These were among the visions conjured by more than 1,300 entrants in an essay contest sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor. Imagine a world at peace in the year 2010, Monitor editors said, and tell us how it came to pass. Forty of the best essays are contained in a forthcoming book, "How Peace Came to the World," edited by Earl W. Foell and Richard A. Nenneman of the Monitor and published by The MIT Press of Cambridge, Mass. The editors discerned two major directions among the essayists: "those starting with governments alone or through intergovernmental organizations, such as the the United Nations, and those starting with individuals" such as anti-nuclear movements. Many saw the road to peace littered with the charred victims of nuclear catastrophe, while others envisioned an orderly transition achieved through negotiations, exchange programs, or rapid advances in communication technology that would all but eliminate misunderstandings. One of the most apocalyptic visions came from Richard Lamm, the Democratic governor of Colorado, who wrote that war in the developing world would be an undesirable but possible road to peace. The darkest hour was on Nov. 29, 1994, Lamm wrote. India and its "But peace is neither the absence of war nor the presence of a disarmament agreement. Peace is a change of heart. — Richard Lamm neighbor Pakistan acquired nuclear weapons, and used them against one another for reasons that are obscure, buried in the rubble of their mutual destruction. "Peace was not negotiated: It burst on a stunned mankind," Lamm wrote. "Simply put, one minute, tens of millions of people were going about their daily routines and the next moment they were ashes," he wrote. The destruction was so unexpected, so swift and so thorough that no reports came from either India or Pakistan. "Few were left to carry the word. The first news came from U.S. and Russian satellites that reported a nuclear exchange involving at least 20 detonations," Lamm wrote. "The first sound of .this war was silence. Chilling, eerie silence." U.S. television networks carried the first images of the conflict, taken from airplanes and showirg "panoramas of a moonlike landscape.'' A three-year nuclear winter en- sued, and the U.S. fed the world from its grain reserves. "No formal negotiatons followed the holocaust. Politicians continued to find barriers to treaties," Lamm wrote. "But peace is neither the absence of war nor the presence of a disarmament agreement. Peace is a change of heart. Both the Soviet Union and the United States simply stopped building nuclear weapons and missiles." Vernon F. Wilkinson, of Christchurch, New Zealand, said the catalyst for peace might be a Soviet missile accidentally fired on Manhattan, and shot down with superpower cooperation. Robert Aronstein of Falls Church, Va., envisioned conflict in Eastern Europe sparking nuclear strikes against the third largest U.S. and Soviet cities, Chicago and Kiev. The exchange sobers Moscow and Washington, and paves the way for broad international agreements. Essayists describing peace achieved through citizens movements were often, in the words of the editors, "naive about the Soviet system." Businessman Dan Baker of Escondido, Calif., imagined that peace could be brought about by forming a private corporation to end conflict by means of public relations and business management. Others urged exchange programs to reduce the threat of war. Kenneth E. Boulding, an economist and environmentalist from Boulder, Colo., revived an idea from the 1970s — sending 50,000 children of the Soviet and U.S. elite to study in the other superpower, serving as hostages against nuclear attack.
