Seven Reasons Why World Peace is Possible

Post by Mordae on Sat Sep 13, 2014 3:04 am

Interesting article that I think is well worth the read....

http://permaculturenews.org/2014/09/12/seven-reasons-world-peace-possible/

Introduction

The 21st of September will be International Day of Peace. It may seem a little premature to declare that world peace is due to break out by the end this month. I do not deny that the amount of killing and death and war and torture and death and coercion and abuse and death all over everywhere can be overwhelming. Nor do I deny that considering this it is a natural assumption to believe people are sinners, destined for extinction. However, I do argue that compassion is as much a part of human nature as cruelty.

There is evidence that humankind did not always live violent lives. In fact, I assume most people reading this article are not habitually violent, and do not desire to watch someone suffer. All animals have the capacity to enrich the lives of others. We have the capacity to be both selfish and kind. What matters is which quality we chose to focus on; bringing that quality into focus within ourselves, the world, and our children.

Here I have collected an array of research demonstrating that there is a positive potential within each social group and person. I argue that humans can learn to build societies which are not founded on the expectation of organised violence. Here are seven reasons why world peace is possible. You won’t believe your own strength of belief: There is at least some hope...

We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.

There is always three sides to every thing, if you create peace war will be the balance, what we create, the third angle is always the balance. I would like to think we cannot create anything by itself once we have created it we can only control it.
