Peace is a life necessity! No home, no family, no economic growth and development, no solutions to climate change, clean water, poverty, equality. War destroys everything in terms of human progress, don't fall for that war gives us all those medical breakthroughs (50% of people who die each drink contaminated, polluted water : fact). If we spent the money spent on war, for health research, care, preventive care, clean water, 90% of the world's population would improve "peacefully" in just two years. Amazing the facts the waste of war and it's costs long term.
so true ~ and harder to have this much needed conversation with those who've made their careers in military service
Thank you for this.
Communication on the both personal and political level is the key. Creating a paradigm in which all people feel like they have power over their life is necessary for a better world. People develop complex’s and other issues when they feel powerless and this is why the Palestinian people and many of the other oppressed people of the world are so willing to use violence.
Global violence is a symptom of a greater problem.
