Monday Musings

So now that we've survived December 21, 2012, experts tell us that we are entering a new age - an Age of Enlightenment. Some say that we will have peace for a thousand years.

What do you think must happen in order to ensure peace around the globe?

Consider the reasons people go to war - or inflict harm on another. Religious beliefs conflicting with others' beliefs is one of the major causes for war. Another is the quest to control land, water, food, or resources - gold, silver or uranium as examples. Some wars are fought simply because one man wants power - and has the backing of powerful people behind him to enable military might.

Then you have people who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Or people who suffer from mental disorders who may or may not have been diagnosed. In the history of the world, some of these people have risen to great heights and seized power not only from their own countrymen but have marched across the globe to conquer others.

If you were part of a task force to form global peace, what would you do to ensure this happens?

I would tell everyone to unite in a large "peace" sign. The sign would be big enough to be seen from outer space. This is the signal to aliens that we have given up firearms. They would come down and take over the world, and we would then become the United Worlds of the Universe. We would have social societies of "unclean" and "clean" depending on how much human the blood is...

Oh wait... you want the truth of the matter?

There will never be peace on earth until we learn to cope we our inner selfish desires.

And maybe if all men were extinguished throughout the planet - maybe keep one or two for procreation purposes... ahem.

Happy New Year! And I'm tired as heck today!
