How To Make The World A Better Place

World peace. Yes that elusive desire spoken of by thousands of beauty pageant contendors world wide.

What can we do to create world peace? I propose a dramatic solution to world peace. My solution is so radical, it will make you wonder, "Why didn't I think of that?"

My solution is that half of the world should be insurance agents. Yes, you heard it right, insurance agents. Not religion, not peace talks, but the humble insurance agent.

When people become insurance agents, they become nicer people. They call you at least once a year to see how you're doing. They remember your birthday. They are intensely interested in your family developments, when you get married, when you have kids, which college your kids are interested in going to.

When insurance agents meet up, they will almost always offer to buy you lunch or dinner. They will be on time for appointments. They are kind and courteous.

If these are the things that happen when people become insurance agents, wouldn't that be the solution to world peace?
