||Well, I'll bid your //armed insurrection// plus cookies!
||I like this idea, and I'm bunning it, but it will have
absolutely no impact on armed conflict. Nothing will. If
you somehow removed all of the world's weapons (and
improvised weapons), nations would still send their armies
to wage war barehanded. Violence is a part of us, just as
it is with nearly every animal (even mice and little fishes
attack and kill each other).
||Folks, the equation of History is extremely simple. The lack of conflict leads to overpopulation. Overpopulation leads to conflict. It's been true ever since some old tribe of Homo Habilis got numerous enough to divide into two tribes --except that all the neighboring territories were already occupied.

||Re visiting this idea: I heard that in Montesore kindergardens
the kids are not allowed to play with toy guns and toy soldiers
and that everything is made from wood, so the boys take the
wooden giraffes and shoot at each other.
