When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I feel the pain in the world
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Poverty, Education, Violence, Human Rights
So what is it?
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Fear, prejudice and hatred play a strong role, but mostly those seem either to stem from religion or to be exploited by religion.
Can we change the world?
More about me
I'm a full-time crank. Some of you might think I'm a war-mongerer for my views on the Global War on Terror (http://fixthiswar.ning.com), but if you read the whole thing, you'll see that I'm just trying to figure out a better approach. When our enemies clearly are not peaceful, I have a hard time with a passive approach.
I care less about whether you agree with my views than I do about whether your views are thoughtful and worth discussing. We often (maybe almost always) can't change each other's views, at least not with a simple argument. But if we're thoughtful about our own views, we can at least begin to understand each other and find common ground, where it exists.
