When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I am a born activist
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Education, Our Planet, Violence, Inflation, Human Rights, Our Shrinking Freedom, Other
So what is it?
All of the above
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Other
More
Ironically, focusing on the obstacles to peace is the biggest obstacle to peace. "You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete." (R. Buckminster Fuller) The situation in Gaza is a perfect example. The more people focus on the conflict and argue about the reasons for it, the less peace there will be. Instead, create a solution that makes the old conflict obsolete. Focus on the people themselves. Help the children. Implement an unconditional, permanent, universal cease-fire.
Can we change the world?
Definitely

Promise to respect others and refrain from spamming?
Yes

It's 1984, Newspeak. Everything means its opposite.



What kind of game is this?

Isn't defense when you're pushing back against an invader,

blocking the objects being lobbed into your territory?

When you're the one… Continue
