What? You don’t think mere talk?

What, you don’t think that “simply” talking can cure the violence? Well, then, what good has throwing more bombs and fists accomplished? If that does not work but we keep doing it, do we not label ourselves as insane?

Perhaps the difficulty is that what we want is wrongly conceived: for we want our way to prevail. Why? So then we can live as we wish to live, without being bothered by others. We think peace will not get that, but look: we are the ones who have thus defined peace. But I lay before you a larger vision of peace: live as we wish, being enriched, encouraged and challenged by others; a fuller life, always fuller.
