Give Peace A Chance? Not Likely

It's hard to imagine that it's been 35 years....and still no peace.  I was studying for fourth year final exams and can clearly recall listening to non-stop John Lennon over my headphones.

  1. I find myself shaking my head in disbelief and disgust that we are so hellbent on killing our fellow man. As the world matured, communications improved, and people traveled more many of us hoped the catalyst for war would diminish. Instead with new technology we have only expanded our abilities to spread death and destruction. National pride, political agendas, religious and ethnic hatreds are some of the biggest roadblocks to world peace. Sadly over the history of mankind peace has been the exception rather then the rule.

    While those who benefit from the production of weapons busy themselves with promoting war as a solution to our woes as an answer war often fails to be either easy, swift, or true. The true reality is that across the world few mothers want to see their children killed and most farmers want to be left along to raise their crops and earn a living.

    Though we live in an imperfect world mankind should not bring more misery upon himself by self inflicting injury. War tends to open a Pandora's box rather than the easy solutions and answers we seek. More on the subject of war and the reason it is not a solution to conflict in the article below.
