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, Education, Violence
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
The mechanism of biological evolution has created us to deal with few people, short distances and relatively small segments of time. These do not exist much in the world today. We are reacting with brains programmed for another way of living. Fear is one of these inheritances. Fear of being attacked by wild animals, fear of demons, starvation and pain. Fear of the stranger. In many places humankind has all but eliminated the causes of these fears, but the fear is internal and we need through education and various practise s to reduce the internal fear to a realistic level.
Can we change the world?
