The Reunification of Korea and World Peace

5 Action for World Peace
5.5 The House of Unification for World Peace, The Women's Federation for World Peace (WFWP)
The House of Unification for World Peace that I propose is not a political party. In other words, it will not have the function commonly associated with political parties of seeking to preside over the executive powers of government in a given country. It is, rather, a "house" whose purpose is to reinforce the concerted efforts of the world's countries and foster a unified foundation and common effort for world peace.
Through this structure, we can provide a new impetus to the work of providing opportunities for meaningful exchange and education on a God-centered vision for world peace to people of all nations and all walks of life, including religious and political leaders, scholars, journalists, educators, artists and cultural commentators, as well as leaders of women and of youth. This vision of world peace will be centered on families in which mothers, representing all the women of the world, achieve mind-body unity through love. (234-251, 1992.08.24)
To settle down on this earth, God has to settle on the cornerstone of the love-centered family nucleus. We have to make unity to achieve world peace, and the world has to aim for peaceful unification. The original source is not in the individual, family, society, nation or world. Though America is at present a leading nation of the democratic world, where must it make the foundation upon which to advocate peace from now on? Not in America. If the foundation for peace is placed in the United States, all other countries will rebel. If the origin does not put its root down in the family, which is the fundamental standard, it cannot bring peace. Even though we receive harsh opposition and there are enemies lurking around us, we must not give up the family foundation at any cost but must settle upon a stable foundation, or we will not be able to lay the cornerstone for world peace. It is in this sense that the body is to be known as the House of Unification for World Peace. You must clearly know this. (241-014, 1992.12.19)
The Women's Federation for World Peace (WFWP) must settle as a movement of the most thorough education in family ethics. Otherwise, there will be no fulfillment of God's Will, no world peace nor any national rehabilitation. To lay the foundation, a person like myself must go in search of the family.
The women's movement for world peace has become the House of Unification for World Peace. The Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU) is a "house" for families, not a political party. Conflict cannot become the yardstick for peace. (232-199, 1992.07.06)
