Peace, It's What We All Want

Peace is what we all desire. 

Peace is more than the absence of conflict. 

Peace is balance and harmony. 

Peace is more than civility and cooperation. 

Peace is recognition of responsibility. 

Peace is more than wisdom and moral maturity. 

Peace is shared consciousness. 

Barriers to peace are distortions of reality. 

Barriers to peace are rooted in individual human ignorance and immaturity. 

All barriers to peace, are created and maintained by us. We build ethics and systems that create conflict and make peace impossible.

Accumulating Stuff

Accumulating stuff does not make one important, powerful, happy, healthy, wise or loved. It's a game!

Prosperity at the expense of others, is gamesmanship. Problems arise when people apply this idea to life.

We must cooperate and collaborate to endure. When competition, prosperity at the expense of others, is unlimited; society disintegrates.

Take Care of Your Government

I think the purpose of all government is to enable each of us to do what we can not do alone. 

When an individual, or group of individuals, manipulates a government system for their exclusive benefit; they commit an evil deed. They have defied community norms and ignored their responsibilities. They must be identified and held to account.
