Hi,guys This is my first topic here in this section of the forums so please be gentle! While at work I have seen a lot of kids wearing peace signs and t-shirts spouting the long dead slogans about,love,peace and understanding.What they fail to understand is as long as there are humans there will be war it's our species nature to conquer and pillage those weaker than us.All this talk about peace is naive when put in context of human history,we try to break that cycle but we deep down don't want to or are not allowed to.As the report from Iron Mountain says:"Control over a Nation's people lies with it's war power."

I usually say that nothing is impossible.
However, when it comes to the issue of world peace i have to make an exception. Our world will never know peace, we are just not capable of it.
The best we can do is as individuals be as peaceful as possible.
"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace."
Too many powerful people are unwilling to give up their power, its sad but true.
