I’m doing some writing for the new book on peace. It’s an odd topic interestingly enough, not as straightforward as it sounds. It is a theme punished by lip service especially in political realms. It’s easy for some to idealize and romanticize about peace. The reality is that there are more people than you would imagine who make a lot of money and stay rich from war. They are as cut-throat about it (pun pardoned) as one would expect any Wall Street shark to be: profits over people and planet, and peace.
This is precisely why any chance of each anywhere is in the building of alternative economies. It is far more difficult, strategic and innovation intensive work than the barbaric acts of war. To that, education must be focused.
