Book 8: North-South Unification and World Peace
True Parents have offered their entire lives to end the kingdom of hell on earth and in heaven, which arose due to the Fall of our first ancestors, and to establish the kingdom of heaven on earth and in heaven. True Parents' course is truly the eternal model course, the pattern that humanity must inevitably follow. Because True Parents have tread this course, God and humankind will realize their dream of an ideal peaceful world on earth and in the spirit world.
True Father knew that in order to achieve world peace, he had to block the spread of communism, which advocates atheism. He set up a number of organizations to reunify the Korean Peninsula, including the International Federation for Victory Over Communism (IFVOC) and the Citizens' Federation for the Unification of North and South Korea.
When True Father met with President Gorbachev in Moscow, the heart of the communist world, he advised him to advocate returning to God. The following year, during his visit to Pyongyang more than 40 years after his departure from North Korea, True Father encouraged inter-Korean exchanges during his meeting with President Kim Il-sung. True Father presented his vision of North-South unification and world peace, based on true love and head-wing thought. Earlier, Father's declaration of the end of communism and the conclusion of its ideological conflict with democracy had been set forth at the Second International Congress of the Professors World Peace Academy (PWPA), held in Geneva, Switzerland, in August 1985.
True Parents knew that international campaigns to triumph over communism were necessary in order to achieve world peace. For this reason, they initiated numerous projects in the United States, Japan, and other countries. In particular, they established the Association for the Unity of Latin America (AULA) and the Confederation of the Associations for the Unification of the Societies of the Americas (CAUSA) in order to preserve peace in North and South America. They also founded the Mongolian Peoples' Federation for World Peace, identifying the central responsibility of Mongolian-root ethnicities in the world peace movement. In addition, True Parents knew that the United Nations should be reformed for the sake of world peace. They systematically founded and developed the Inter-Religious Federation for World Peace (IRFWP), the Federation for World Peace (FWP), the Interreligious and International Federation for World Peace (IIFWP), and the Universal Peace Federation (UPF). They ultimately declared that the world has to be unified under the Peace UN, which would have as its center a deliberative body of religious leaders in the position of an upper house or senate.
True Parents proposed the construction of the International Peace Highway as a way to connect the world substantially. They also initiated various international and academic conferences and educated the public about the construction of the Korea-Japan Undersea Tunnel and the Bering Strait Tunnel. True Parents saw that we can establish the substantial Cheon Il Guk on earth, the "one world under God" that God so desires, and they exerted themselves for the sake of connecting the global village as one family and creating mutual understanding.
