Can there ever truly be peace?

As we all already know so far, United states and it's military have grown too big. So in order to protect it's national interests, it causes undercover/open conflicts in order to profit from them. Otherwise, people would become poor to far greater extent, especially with FED in play for the past 100 years.
And so "underdeveloped" nations and innocent villages become battlefields. In the end, all that is left from those places that once knew peace, is just misery and pain.

Lets face it, we all want peace, that same peace which Ron Paul so much struggle to bring back during all this years as politician.

However, while it is greed on this side of the world that runs the wheels of conflict, what about those who are doing the fighting?
When one looses somebody dear to him at the hands of somebody, they will try to take revange on him; and in turn the opponent will try to take ravange on them back; thus creating an endless cycle of hatred, which will never be broken; because vengance will only breed more vengance in turn.

We all know what happend in the past, and we can almost predict what the future will be.
Are humans beings truely incapable of understanding eachother?

Is this world only ruled by greed and hatred?

That being said, how can one confront hatred, in order to create peace?

Or is the Watchmen (book) method only way to bring the peace to the world?

If Massacres Happen In Gun-Free Zones...

If massacres happen in gun-free zones, and allowing self-defense is the answer, then we should probably give away nuclear weapons to any country that is feeling intimidated so that the odds of anyone actually using them will be reduced.

The very rare practice of free market capitalism without government taxation produces the most peace for any society. The Great Experiment was beyond successful...it became dangerous to the people who let it happen.

If people were simply allowed to keep what they earned through their own hard work, without redistruting their hard earned wealth to non producing elements of society, peace would be a global event.

World Peace and prosperity is only possible with limited taxation, and small, local forms of government.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts.

Greed

If there are a significant number of people who know it is abhorrently wrong to be employed in support of the military, and do it anyway, then we have what may seem like an insurmountable problem. The problem is known as greed, and stems from people who do not care or take into account the feelings or interests of others.

I would venture to guess that most/all of us has acted out of greed at one point or another without even being cognizant of it. In fact, most of us do it every day!

This gets right at the heart of why I wrote the article "Sowing The Seeds For A Peace Revolution"

Jesus Said ...

"Let he who is without sin cast the first stone". So maybe before we can blame those in the military of acting out of greed, we first need to start leading greed-free lives ourselves.

Anything less would be hypocritical, and therefore not honored by God.

Ephesians 6:12

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

One of the biggest pitfalls in a "movment" is the temptation to get cultish about it and refuse to realize that it is only part of the picture. -Joel Salatin ; You Can Farm pg 202

No, but the highest amount of freedom will create the highest amount of peace I believe.
