"Just Give Peace A Chance"



Problem:
We live in a violent society which is conducive to random killings. Whether we blame the media; poverty; poor education; or even the government's imperialistic agenda (constant state of war and terror); - we have to face this fiasco and remedy it.





Solution:
To welcome certain acts of violence and to shun others has proven futile in nurturing a healthy society. Hence we have given violence its fair chance: for throughout history we have allowed war; aggression; and patriarchal methods. Is it not time to "just give peace a chance"?




Methodology:
If in the absent of violence there is peace, then it is non-violent methods we seek.

Ideally we would be able to seek a solution in a 'top down model' - where the government would change certain policies and the violence would diffuse. As nice as that would be - it is unrealistic and many would suggest that the solution lays more at a grassroots level in a 'bottom up model'.

Yet the grassroots level may very well be a too high of a point to start as well - for the ultimate change lays in the individual. For before individuals can congregate and collaborate for a greater communal consciousness - they themselves must have actualized its virtues.

To anticipate the such: individuals laboring at finding peace within themselves - would be at best - naive. The probability that individuals will self-motivate and began the arduous task on their own is close to zero.

Thus the method to finding communal wellness lays not within top down or bottom up models - but rather lays in every facet of the society becoming involved in "refinement." Example can be made of China's recent 'refinement regiment' (i.e. no spitting in public spaces)- to better present itself for the upcoming Olympics. From the governance to the media; private enterprise; academia; and grassroots - every asset of society must be mobilized in finding better citizenry and communal wellness.

Task:
Thus to bring non-violence into our societies psyche - individuals must let go of their violent thoughts; methodologies; and actions. This begins with deep introspection and studies aided by a strong will to live righteous. Realization of concepts that have been scribed about non-violence: i.e. it is not a double negation as in 'not getting angry is non-violence' - rather non-violence lays in refining one's thoughts and actions and coming to higher understandings of life and its processes...

Despite the truth that the external or walking location with the belt could possibly not definitely be esthetically attractive, the portion
of the belt that's in fact not actually noticeable is certainly essentially the most essential.
