We need to visualize world peace. What would it be like?
We glorify the warrior but what do we do for the one who seeks peace?

This is an excellent article detailing the role of various people and organisations in conflicts over the last 5 years or so.
What is truly frightening is that the conclusion of the author is spot on, as can be seen every day on ATS.
In the race for power and money masquerading as patriotism, many have lost sight of the essential parts of humanity that makes us different from the animals - the ability to look at the truth, in a reasonable, circumspect manner and declare that war is not the answer.
But because those who rely on the MSM for their view of the world are drip fed their daily dose of war-fuelled propaganda and view it as truth, the world will be a dangerous place for many years to come.
We could have come so far in the decades since WW2, but instead it seems we are going backwards.

The twin monsters of greed and war have been allowed dominance in our new world order while other values, such as empathy and generosity are seen as effeminate weaknesses. I don’t think that the level of violence or the hunger for power that has swept through our country and has led to the bankrupting of all social nets is a coincidence or an unintended consequence. It is what was intended all along.

We have AIPAC running its major policy session this week in Washington with Obama, McCain and Clinton all needing to speak there and assure them of their allegiance to the State of Israel, which is odd because they are not Israeli citizens. Yet, such things, this kind of right wing, reactionary war mongering goes on and on.
This is your political agenda made to read like a list of public fears. Clever attempt though.
