World Peace Still Entirely Possible

Monday, August 4th, 2014

World peace isn’t just possible, it is highly probable. And we could see it come to fruition within the next decade.

Even after many years since I came to the conclusion that world peace can actually happen right now, I still haven’t been dissuaded one bit.

Here’s why:

1 – Technology is getting better and cheaper faster than ever before. This will help eliminate global poverty, which will greatly decrease the drives to war.
2 – With this technology comes the Internet, and this is letting a global world connect on a local level, something never before possible. As we unite as a species, we see there are no enemies left for our armies to fight.
3 – This unification will also reveal the mostly unspoken truth behind wars, which is that a handle of companies are making billions of dollars a year on this bloodshed. Once we work together on a multi-national level, we can hold the defense industry accountable to us – the world’s people.

The goal is to take the financial incentives out of war, and it starts with the arms industry itself. We can implement 100% taxes on the profits of weapons manufacturing. We can issue fines and demand repayments for death and suffering cause by defense contractors’ products. We can sue and win huge settlements in class action suits against the key corporations involved in equipping the world’s militaries.

The idea of taxing, fining, or even suing the biggest industry on earth may seem absurd, but that’s only because we haven’t tried it yet. And why the hell shouldn’t some businesses be held accountable. We don’t need their weapons of war in our world anymore!

Once hundreds of millions of people around the world see it as possible, we will have the leverage to make it happen. The trick will be to reach these hundreds of millions of people in time.

Without Peace Nothing is Possible

Nothing is possible without peace. Had not people thought revolt is the ultimate means of avoiding injustice, tyranny and suppression, they’d never have created the slogan “Understanding in Brain, Honesty in Heart & Responsibility on Shoulder” which is why human rights should be protected by rule of law.

The Year 1995 is remarkable for the starting of Maoists revolution, yet many children born in 1995 still have not experienced peace. However, the youths are a very important power of the development of a nation, yet their roles have been limited to speech and slogan. They have been used as a device for personal interest. Such a tradition of using youth as device should be eradicated. In the present context, they should be given key responsibility of developing the nation. Rather than putting nation destroying weapons in their hands.

Every organization is born with great dream. That it fails and distorts the ground has been a tradition in Nepal. However, in spite of that fact, we will be responsible and dedicated to the country and people as long as the voice of a child, helpless and the poor, remain unheard. We can’t believe that peace can be established if people are afraid in returning: a child from school, a worker from factory, a teacher from school & others.

We conceive wisdom as one of the source of peace. To help of people in pain and decide what is right and what is wrong is wisdom. In the light of wisdom and peace are interrelated, the motto of this is to enable people think properly.


Mr. Santosh Bidari is the Founder and Director of Nepal’s Peace for People non-profit organization. The mission of the ‘Peace for People’ Program is to involve at least one person from each family for peace establishment and human rights protection.

‘We want to influence people psychologically with an aim of making people aware of their role towards peace and human rights. We will attempt to establish peace and human rights education from primary level. From our side we will leave no stone untouched. We will forward a campaign of making aware one member from each family on the issue of peace and human right. Furthermore, it will take a form of non- formal education for those who are out of school and education.’ – Peace for People

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.
