Kyu-won was already active in the social media of Twitter and Facebook. With the help of the campaign manager of Vauxhallites, he prepared a short 10-minute video on how technological revolution had brought the world together and how the people would benefit if anyone could live and work anywhere in the world. As soon as he posted the video on Twitter and Facebook, it went viral; its content resonated enormously with the people; it didn’t take even a week to get 50 million hits; a million people from all over the world offered to collaborate with Kyu-won. So far, Kyu-won hadn’t trusted friends outside his motherland, but now he started Skype interviews with people of many different countries and set up a well-knit organisation, spanning worldwide. Millions, then billions of people around the world collaborated on the common theme: ‘Let’s belong to our world and let world belong to us; to work for and to live in. Let boundaries disappear between countries and families’.
While Kyu-won and his close associates prepared a white paper on WO, they started collaboration with people-smuggling groups of various countries. They researched various ways of people smuggling—sending boatloads of people to foreign countries, dropping paratroopers, taking help from the army of the country, building tunnels beneath the country borders for smuggling people, flying people across the border without immigration check.
Kun-woo and Chun-ja of Jie-won’s camp researched on pairs of countries separated by land borders. Most countries have at least one neighbouring country separated by a land border. The longest land border between two countries is 8,891km between Canada and the United States. The longest single segments of land borders are:
Kazakhstan and Russia: 6,846km
Canada and United States: 6,414km
Argentina and Chile: 5,150km
Kun-woo and Chun-ja located on the world map, all land borders between countries. United States’ land border with Mexico is 3,141km long. Jie-won planned to mobilise WO supporters to buy land in the bordering towns on both sides of the border. New houses would be constructed. Under the cover of construction work, tunnels would be built beneath the border; these tunnels would enable smuggling of people from the house in the bordering town of one country (say Mexico) to the house in the bordering town of the other country (say USA). All people smuggling needn’t be done simultaneously, but done whenever convenient between the two countries connected by hidden tunnels.
Woo-jin coined the idea of marriages between WO supporters of different countries. He said: ‘Inter-caste marriages remove the boundaries among different castes. Inter-country marriages would remove boundaries between countries’.
Myung-sook objected because recently a few overseas girls married Canadian boys only to become permanent Canadian residents. Woo-jin explained that the goal was legal immigration; wedded partners would be prepared to get divorced later. Kyu-won worked on this idea: the person from developed countries would travel and marry spouses from developing countries. After the wedding, both partners would reside in the developed country.
Min-jun and Su-bin considered use of paratroopers for moving people from one country to another. The word AIRBORNE speaks volumes to those who know what these paratroopers once were, and still are. These paratroopers were perhaps a crazy bunch, but they got the job done. One veteran paratrooper said to all comrades, ‘Airborne all the way, do or die; come home with your shield, or on it’.
Kyu-won considered paratrooper migration wouldn’t be feasible; owing to the limited capacity of cargo aircraft, paratroopers rarely jumped in groups larger than 20 from one aircraft. Also, because of radar controls, it wouldn’t be possible for the aircraft to enter the sky over a foreign country.
Around this time, a dating advertisement appeared on the internet offering free flights to beautiful persons. One could respond either as an Attractive Traveller or as a Generous Traveller. Attractive Travellers love to travel, but lack the budget. They would look for Generous Travellers who would pay for their partner’s travel either in cash or in frequent flyer miles. Generous Travellers would get free access to this website; they need to pay only when they communicate with any Attractive Traveller. Both Attractive and Generous travellers may search the hundreds of thousands of real members worldwide. One may choose to email a member directly, or send a travel invitation via the website. Using this online dating site, two members travel together, the Generous Traveller pays all travel expenses.
Jie-won preferred to be aloof from this online dating website that might lure attractive girls to prostitution. This was the time when a wife’s family of four girls, born in the husband’s country, made a very public bid to prevent the children from being sent back to the husband’s country to have a custody dispute heard in the court system of the husband’s country. The court of the country had to follow the International Convention, signed by both countries.
Men's Rights Agency of the wife’s country said the apparent outpouring of sympathy for the children's mother was reflective of men's poor standing in such situations; many fathers are left behind by mothers abducting children both within a country and internationally. To Jie-won’s way of thinking, had the world been one country, the custody battle could have been fought in any court of the world, using virtual courts, if needed.
This was the time when a German policeman wasn’t permitted to move to Canada with his autistic stepdaughter, even though his 25-year-old daughter had two jobs and volunteered with the Scout movement. He was offered a job as a constable on a remote coast of Canada and was due to start work as soon as his visa was approved. His family had to continue in Europe. Jie-won and Kyu-won thought, had the world been one organisation, then this policeman wouldn’t have the problem of relocating to Canada.
This was the time when boatloads of asylum seekers were drowning at sea while trying to reach the shores of developed countries. One billionaire said that the government of involved countries should allow asylum seekers to fly into the developed country at one-tenth the cost of coming on people-smugglers’ boats. He requested the government to allow asylum seekers to pay their own return plane fare into developed countries and process them for immigration; the ones not found legitimate would be sent back on the next flight. He urged the government to follow international responsibilities of allowing people to arrive safely.
This was the time when the world’s understanding of the origin of the universe had taken an historic leap forward with the discovery of a subatomic particle that scientists believed to be the Higgs boson or ‘God particle’. The discovery had been hailed as virtual proof of the Standard Model of physics that describes the interactions of all known subatomic particles and forces. According to the Standard Model, the Higgs boson is the manifestation of the so-called Higgs field, an invisible energy field filling all space. The Higgs boson gives mass to other subatomic particles such as protons, neutrons, quarks and leptons. Physicists of the world put their heads together; Jie-won envisaged that every individual is blessed by ‘God Particle’; let all individuals inspire one another to enhance the health and productivity of the world, if not the universe.
This was the time when the frequency of identity theft was rising fast. It was becoming difficult for the real person to prove his or her identity. Kyu-won used identity theft tricks to camouflage his comrades; many of them had the same names, similar handwriting, similar mannerism and voice. If one comrade moved from country A to country B, another identical comrade would continue in country A, as if no-one had moved. These comrades appeared to be omnipresent and omnipotent in multiple countries.
This was the time when super-rich people from developing countries were migrating more and more to developed countries to invest there and live better lives for themselves and their next generation.
