We Could Have Peace Today

Friday, July 16th, 2010

The only thing keeping us from having world peace today is that not enough people believe peace is possible.

If enough people believed in peace, they would have hope. If they had hope, they would try for peace. And it is this lack of trying, this lack of effort, which leaves out a vital ingredient in the recipe for world peace.

When enough people awaken to see world peace as more than just a dream, world peace will become a reality. Put another way, with each person who comes to believe in world peace, we get one step closer to peace actually coming true.

Peace starts with you. Look for peace inside yourself. Once you’ve found it, look for peace in the world and how you can help make it happen.

On the Brink of World Peace

Friday, July 16th, 2010

Do you believe we could achieve world peace in 100 years, if we really tried for it?

Now, given how fast technology is moving forward, imagine where we will be ten years from now. In ten years, perhaps the idea of seeing world peace within a decade won’t be unrealistic.

If this is true, then we really are on the brink of world peace. World peace is coming, and it is likely to be here within 20 years.

Soldiers Against War

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

Here is an excellent video about how the real enemies we need to fight are those who send young men and women to war.

Why of course the people don’t want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don’t want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship …Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.
