PEACE ON EARTH:
ESTABLISH A WORLD PEACE FORCE,
THEN DISARM ALL NATIONS

INTRODUCTION:

    Even a movement requiring 100 years for completion
must begin with year one.
How many of the 7 billion people living on the Earth
would favor giving up their national armed forces
if there were a World Peace Force to prevent tribal warfare?

    In 2016 probably less than 5% would agree to disarm.
But if each year this segment of human beings
could be increased by 1 percentage point,
then about 100 years from now,
the World Peace Force would be fully operational.

    Local police forces would still be required
to enforce all local, state, & national laws.
But the World Peace Force would guard against genocide
and prevent nations from going to war against one another.
Military violence would no longer be used to settle disputes between states
or to achieve and maintain political power within a nation.

1.  HOW OUR FACEBOOK SEMINAR IS ORGANIZED

    Exploring the dream of peace on earth
takes place by means of a world-wide Facebook Group called:
PEACE ON EARTH:
ESTABLISH A WORLD PEACE FORCE,
THEN DISARM ALL NATIONS
:
http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/groups/199878276819122/?fref=ts
Every week a new subject is introduced.
Then members of the seminar offer their comments, questions, & responses.

    This discussion might lead to some revisions of the essays
as published on the Internet.
And these essays will become the chapters of the book.

    Sometimes our discussions might lead to the creation of new essays,
which will become new chapters of the book.

    The weekly discussion themes are linked below.
This permits participants to read ahead if they wish.
And any reader can sample any theme at any time.

    Specific dates for each discussion are not included,
since there might be unexpected delays
if we have hot discussion of some particular theme.
So, we will have a new theme approximately every week.
The members of this Facebook Group will shape how we proceed.

    Our organized discussions will begin
when there are about 100 peace-loving people in our Facebook Group:
http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/groups/199878276819122/?fref=ts

    Once you join this Facebook Group,
set your Notifications to "All Posts".
Then you will receive the discussion-starter once a week.
Post your comments and questions on Facebook,
directly under the chapter to which you are responding.
