In June 1982, a Special Session on DISARMAMENT
will be held in New York. In 1978, a similar session held
whose result was a failure, just as all the Conferences
on Disarmament have been since 1899.
If an "effective control of disarmament" is really the
wish of the parties, as it is stated 14 times in the
Document that concludes the United Nations session of
1978, is it not urgent to address at laste, the principle
of the absolute national sovereignty of each Nation-State
Mundialists are not the only ones that have
acknowledged this necessity :
Leon BLUM said : "Disarmament implies, for the control
to be effective, the limitation of national
sovereignties" "The problems of Peace", 1931.
In 1946, André PHILIP recommended this
principle to be written in the preamble of the Frenc
Constitution, which DE GAULLE kept in the 1958 one :
Under provision of reciprocation France consents to
the limitations of sovereignty necessary to the
organization and defense of peace.
Numerous countries have similar provisions in their
national constitutions (Italy, West Germany, India
Why do political parties and today the French
socialist Party in office not follow these great
predecessors to avoid self destruction of the human
species in a third world war, whether designed or
accidental ? This principle should be supported at the
U.N. session in 1982 on DISARMAMENT.
