How to end all war, including the 'war' on terrorism!

11sept is approaching fast & war (including the 'war' on terror) is still in the air. I feel a need for us (We the People) to seriously try to harmonize our ideas about better ways to deal all our differences! Neither war nor terrorism, make any long-term sense! We can't afford the waste caused by either! I'd like to suggest that our best hope is for each of us to personally make sure we always invite open dialogue with those who disagree with us & try to assure them that we need to hear their viewpoint! And we need to try to reach a consensus on serious matters involving action! Notice I say "try"! Consensus is extremely hard to reach, even when only two people are involved! But my experience tells me that even just making the effort to agree on important matters will bring us closer together in our ideas! So I advocate that we all make a life-long commitment to always make efforts toward consensus on matters that really matter whether we ever reach consensus or not! Yes, I mean it: keep trying to harmonize our ideas over&over&over again! We must try to consense on a general direction for our global society! [We're all in the same boat & it is so hard to get a single boat to go in two different directions at the same time!]
Let's not forget that we are all imperfect beings: none of us can ever accurately predict the future. But because we have to 'do', if we want to keep on 'being', we have no choice but to do our doing in the dark (as far as the future is concerned)! [If you've ever played at being 'blind', you know that we tend be alot more cautious with our eyes closed!] So, even after we reach some sort of agreement on action, we should proceed with caution! This means trying to take the smallest possible steps (into our future!) & staying very alert to the consequences of our action! When danger appears, let's all humbly head back to the 'drawing board'!

Speaking of 'boats' (see above), perhaps if you sing this song before you add your own comments you'll have more energy to do so. (The tune, of course, is "Row, Row, Row Your Boat"): Let's row, row, row our boat toward our common dream of community, harmony, peace & joy on life's exciting stream. If we don't, our common boat is headed for disaster & I think we'll sing into the drink unless we harmonize faster! Let's stop our stupid wasteful ways, like wars & exploitation; let's solve our problems peacefully with win/win situations! Let's focus mainly on life's needs & make sure the're all met! Let's help all those in most distress to get what they don't get! If we give-of-ourselves till no one hurts, let's give & do it gladly! Since we're all earthmates on this earth, let's show we love us madly!

You can, of course, 'sing into the drink' if you want to, but it was my intent to say 'sink into the drink'!

I applaud your idealistic vision. And it may even come to pass, only if you forcfully march all the world's people into the "reprogramer" so that they will all think just like you! I praise God that you are not the current "DIC", Despot-In-Charge. Most Despots started out just like you with these lofty ideals and goals. Until they decided to "make" people think, do, live a certain way not only for their own good but for the good of all humanity. What rubbish! Basic Human greed, thirst for power and wealth will ruin all those lofty ideals. Haven't we learned that yet? Haven't we learned that communism doesn't work?

Cool post you got here. It would be great to read something more about that topic. The only thing this blog misses is some pics of any gizmos.
