There is much unfairness, poverty, discrimination, misery, war & famine, and everybody knows it, in a sense...
The answer to all the problems is education:
Don't you think that education is the anwser to all??

However, social and spiritual. Who’s spiritual teachings would you suggest? Buddhist, Christian, Muslim, Shinto?
Who’s social education would you recommend? Since Social behavior is deeply rooted in spiritual practices, I think you would be hard pressed to find a single acceptable curriculum to teach. This is of course at the root of the problem around the world as it is.

If only that were the case... But, when facing a foe willing to sacrifice himself and his future for an ideology of hate, do you think education would be a goal he'd seek? I doubt it.

Dogma is just another one of the differences that he was talking about. Reguardless of dogma, most philosophies the world over to aspire to some situation of peace, not only in the hereafter, but also here on earth. What Alduos Huxley termed the "Perennial philosophy". It is only the aspects of the perennial philosophy that need be taught, all other "specifics" can be left up to the individual. The world would be a better place

I believe the Country that is the biggest threat is the one with the most pacifists. Other countries will not respect them because of the inherent weakness of their people. They will be attacked by more dominant countries like China. Tibet was a great example of this. By the way, china has been occupying Tibet for many years now. They have treated the Tibetan people like dogs. Why is the U.S.A so evil in comparison to an obvious totalitarian and expansionist regime such as China?
