Education for peace

Question from the Internet:

“How can we promote the lesson of peace among the people?”

As you yourself wrote, it is a “lesson”. We need a unique “peace education” in order to learn and implement peace.

We can’t, by default, make peace as our inherent nature is against peace. Inherently we are all 100% self-serving, self-justifying, proudly and fiercely individualistic. We all define ourselves through comparison to others, incessantly thriving to prove ourselves better, higher, stronger, wealthier and more powerful than others.

Life and human society are built upon ruthless, exclusive competition and success at the expense of others. This is why human history is an endless change of wars through recurring vicious cycles, occasionally paused by temporary and unsuccessful peace agreements which only serve as preparation for the next war.

This is why we need a unique educational method that can teach us our true inherent nature as the root cause of all conflicts and wars. Then this method can also teach us how to start existing and behaving above and against our instincts in order to build positive and sustainable, mutually responsible and mutually complementing connections and cooperation.
