Comment: Peace vs. Anti-War

Peace vs. Anti-War

Peace is for the most part conceptual.

War is very real. Anti-war, as the opposition to war, is conjoined to war. So to speak, it is the other side of the coin.

As a political tactic for 2016, anti-war (or non-intervention) may be more pragmatic choices than peace, semantically. Since we all, unfortunately, know too well what is war, anti-war has no identity problem.

But, peace is a much more powerful forte by far. Mother Teresa's quote points to its great mystery and untapped energy, far beyond that of anti-war.

If the liberty movement would seek a prime position at the cutting edge of the launch of civilization's first global model of peace, presidential politics would pale in comparison to such a crowning achievement.
