What is the Einstein-Kim Project and why Einstein now?
Korea occupies a central place in shaping the future of peace and stability in the world's most prosperous and growing regions. North Korea’s persistent launches of ballistic missiles near or over international air routes without prior notice pose an enormous threat to airplanes flying in the region, including Swiss International Air Lines, Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines. This danger was highlighted in July last year, when an Air France airliner flying from Tokyo to Paris flew past an area where a ballistic missile splashed into the Sea of Japan off Hokkaido just several minutes later.
What Einstein would do.
As a Humanist-Pacifist of Scientific Rationalism, Einstein had a particular aversion to Nuclear Arsenels, no matter in whose hands, whether Kim Jung-un’s or Donald Trump’s or whoever else’s. With our approach, new directions of N. Korea, to become a neutral nation on a par with Switzerland, in all such areas as free-spirited education, economics and all the rest will follow.
We must bring peace between North and South Korea in order to avoid such threats and another civil war, possibly a nuclear and chemical one. Part of the problem is a lack of understanding between the two peoples because ideological differences between the two governments, one authoritarian and the other democratic, and consequentially nearly 70 years of separation from one another. A humanist like Einstein would do something for North Korea. What would he do? What could he do? If Einstein were reincarnated as a leader of North Korea (however unlikely it may seem) to implement his political social ideas, can we not then expect revolutionary innovations in North Korea?
There are a number of areas where we urgently need and have to make cautious non-threatening steps forward on North Korea issues, and this is the time to do it. Here is a list of some of our contemplated programs, which can be delivered in the form of cartoons, videos, animations and/or computer programs, and a series of workshops in the North and/or South.
