Reinventing Peace is the World Peace Foundation‘s blog.

In 2011, the World Peace Foundation established a program at the Fletcher School at Tufts University, under Executive Director Alex de Waal.  In line with the educational and practical vision of its founder, today the Foundation aims to provide intellectual leadership on issues of peace, justice and security. We believe that innovative research and teaching are critical to the challenges of making peace around the world, and should go hand in hand with advocacy and practical engagement with the toughest issues. As the Foundation enters its second century, our underlying theme is reinventing peace for the globalizing world.

    In the year 2014 around 1.700 billion dollars were used for weapons and armies; 4, 6 billion dollars a day.

    Do you think that wars would still exist unless weapons were bringing so many profits for a handful of stone hearted individuals that produce them? It is sold to heavily manipulated people with a lust for killing. Before that unease, anger, hatred, desperation and fears are spread amongst those people in order to divide them and make them eager to fight each other without any basic root cause. After the fear has risen, weapons are being sold to all conflicting clients…………………

    The need to eliminate all weapons and war on this planet! Then we could start talk about peace and the quality of life on this planet, which is the only one for all of us. That is the solution, how to emerge from the global crisis. Everything else is wandering in the fog and prolonging the agony. We have to abolish the weaponry and the monetary system. This was also proposed by Pope Francesco.

    Around the world, we suggest a command for the destruction of weapons and for world peace.
    Peace cannot be achieved through violence; it can only be attained through understanding . (Albert Einstein )

    “More than ever before in human history, we share a common destiny. We can master it only if we face it together. And that … is why we have the United Nations.” ( Kofi Annan, the seventh Secretary – General of the United Nations, served from 1997 to 2006)
