Does iPeace have a future after July 2010?

When I was 18, all things were black or white. Now my hair is grey, I know that wasn't right.

Profile Information

When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I'm just a peaceful person
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
Poverty, Education, Our Planet, Violence, Human Rights
What must we overcome to achieve peace?

I must acknowledge that I am bigoted. I believe that to some extent all people are bigoted. (Bigot: A prejudiced person who is intolerant of any opinions differing from his own.)

Is bigotry desirable? Of course not!

Can we change the world?
More about me

I am (still) trying to work out what I'll really do/be when I finally grow up. Worked in IT most of my life. Feel the need to work with people rather than things. I tried for quite a while to keep SULHAoz alive here in OZ, and am now active in other social justice and (re)conciliation issues and interfaith and intercultural issues.

I love drinking good espresso coffee, talking with people, playing with computers and, above all, being a devil's advocate... After all, I am genetically and neurotically Jewish. :-)

I have little patience for and with those who just talk the talk yet do not walk the walk.

Promise to respect others and refrain from spamming?
I'll do my best

Some uncommon common sense

Here are some relevant brief pearls that make sense to me:

  1. "Peace is not an ideology, it's a way of life." (Cofounder of SULHA, Gabriel MEYER)
  2. "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." (Margaret MEAD)
  3. "Blessed are the cracked, for they let in the light. (Spike MILLIGAN)
  4. "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." (Oscar WILDE)
  5. "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it. (George SANTAYANA)
  6. "Never ascribe to malice that which may adequately be explained by incompetence." (Napoleon BONAPARTE)
  7. "When in doubt, tell the (whole) truth." (Mark TWAIN)
  8. "Text without context is pretext" (Dr. Eugene GARCIA)

For those who don't know, I am told that David C. has decided to keep iPeace alive for at least one more year. On what basis and according what rules, I do not (as yet?) know.

Thank you Paul for your mess, it's nice to know what's hapen here.
