A Framework for Peace

The Time for Change is NOW

A WORLD WITHOUT WAR gets to the heart of how our society needs to change.

My sense is that if we do not deal immediately and directly with the systemic and cultural issues laid out in this book that we are at risk.

The situation also presents an unprecedented opportunity for human cooperation and evolution, should we seize the moment. If we do, a very and bright and peaceful future can certainly be ours.

There are optimistic signs. The Hunger Games is filling up theaters because it is tapping into a latent desire within people for change. 'Old Guard' institutions and people are being challenged. The Occupy Movement will also hopefully continue and provide a vehicle for channeling social energy toward change that can effectively impact government policies. Behind the scenes, NGOs and others across the world have been working on several fronts toward a sustainable future.

A WORLD WITHOUT WAR describes how change can occur within a democratic framework. We must regain trust in our democratic ideals, belief in the overall goodness of humanity and thus our ability to govern our own affairs, and understand we no longer have the luxury of gaming the system for individual or group advantage.

We need to cooperate for our very survival. Whether left, right, center or some variation thereof, we need to put down our disagreements and work together for the common good, or we could end up looking very much like the dystopian world of Hunger Games.

The choice is ours. Please read the book and ponder what I’ve said. My sense is that events will force change upon us, and soon.

While the powers that be assume the worst, I assume the best of humanity. I for one am glad to truly believe we can create A WORLD WITHOUT WAR.
