WAR DANCE

Is there anyone left who believes that the inhabitants of earth won't have to learn to live together? Fear is our enemy, not other people. Will war help? Maybe we need to get started in eliminating our fear of each other. Will the internet be the way to accomplish this? What kind of a chat room will that look like?

many people , when asked on the street don't believe we can change, or that war will ever go away. "It's human nature'' they say. I think I have thought that myself, but lately i heard a scientific study that changed my mind. Here is a link to a very cool story that might bring hope and an optimism to your heart that may have been shut off for obvious reasons.(?)

Please take a look, and as the story begins the author states: by GWYNNE DYER
The good news for humans is that it looks like peaceful conditions, once established, can be maintained. And if baboons can do it, why not us?

I found this interesting; The Norwegian Academy of Sciences has determined that since 3600 B.C. there have been 14,531 wars and only 292 years of peace. This is approximately 2.6 wars per year, and one year of "peace" out of every two decades, or a little over 36 hours of peace per month, or about one minute of peace every four hours. IF you could change human nature that might help but the facts show that we all practice bias and prejudices whether we admit it or not.
