Is there really anything that can be achieved and sustained without first establishing world wide solidarity in Peace with all good people of the world?
What can be achieved before Peace without it needing to be dismantled by Peace afterwords?
Demand Peace now. WWIII is going to crush this awakening if people do not continue to push with unbeatable intent and motives.
Yes 'this IS a movement of peace'
I don't know. Whatta you think?
No, this is an us-versus-them witch-hunt movement. It says so right on the home page:
Demand peace now!
Then co-opt it with a message of peace.
I like your spirit! But how about a message of voting instead? Does that work? It's fairly positive...
Vote for Peace!
Win! Vote for Peace!
Choosing sides in wars is useless.
All wars arrive there eventually.
Howabout the greed and corruption of nearly 50% of the people in this country that pay no income tax at all?
You will have no peace unless you demand it. Your family will have no peace unless you stand up for them and demand Peace. Money paid or not paid will not free you.
"If you want peace, prepare for war." - Vegetius
We are in war. No preparing needed. Nothing to do but Demand Peace.
Yes, I'm also the 53%.
Peaceful language needed now more than ever.
"The New York Times reported that analysts say this latest flare-up has brought a new level of dehumanizing, hateful language in the political, digital and civic discourse. The language of annihilation from both sides can be frightening to read and hear."
I agree things are horrible, overwhelming, & a continuation of long standing battles.
I understand the reflex to express all the anger & frustration.
I just believe that every interaction (however small/bug) that adopts the age old war mongering rhetoric only adds to the intractability of this horror.
As such, every interaction that embraces peace in thoughts, language, & actions contributes to the peace we desperately need.
Surely we support peace.
In the end it is right wing MIC/oil war mongers who desire/foment/benefit from all these wars.
I submit we serve peace when we speak of it. And serve war when adopt war speak.
Nobody is slaughtering me boss.
I just support peace.
In the end. We all do. The King, Traitorous Confederates, & every other party to war.
Just as war is inevitable, so is peace.
Why waste the bullets, blood, & treasure? Cut out the middle man (war)
WE must fight for that change in thinking.
The fact is, war mongers feed off of our war speak. It bolsters them, & their agenda.
Peaceful language in turn feeds off of itself as well.
Right now war speak is winning, & war mongers are ascendent
Speak peace, It's for dinner
Me neither. But even as war mongers feed off of the current escalation of violence as well as war speak , I do see them panicing,
They so want us to send the troops in somewhere, anywhere!!
They old hawks have been trotted out and denounced, Diplomacy is being ridiculed but we have resisted their efforts.
And that with the voice of peace barely a whisper.
If the peace chorus grew everywhere. And it will. There will be a positive affects.
Worth a try.? You wouldn't object to others making the effort while you focus on your strategy, would you?
Occupies message is still growing. Picked up by innumerable like minded organizations.
It was/is about non violence and it is/will be successful.
I simply submit that all war must be met with calls for peace.
