Peace Scientists work for peace
If you are not actively working for peace, you are continuing war.
At home, in your community, in your country: are you at peace or at war?

Is your neighbor at peace or at war?

Peace is not about giving in to bullies and oppressors.

Peace can be won nonviolently, in fact, the only way to peace is through nonviolence.

Make peace with the earth. SJ Dodgson MJoTA 2014 v8n2 p0923

We declared war on the earth the minute we learned how to start a fire, how to burn wood and oxygen into ash and that stayed on the ground and carbon dioxide that floated in the air.

We can declare peace by accepting that we do not own the earth, we are merely stewards passing through, and our duty is to cut down use of resources, and cut down waste.

1. Walk, ride a bicycle or use public transport.

2. Do not buy or accept plastic water. Drink tap water in the United States and Europe. Recycle all plastic.

3. Bring buckets into the shower and use the run-off to flush the toilets and water plants.

4. Collect rinse water from washing machine and use it to water tomatoes, peppers, spinach, soy beans.

5. Do not buy too much food. Have a small fridge that goes under the table so you don't have the possibility of loading it with food you will throw out.

6. Avoid processed food. Bread, that is ok, make it yourself if you can. Avoid buying anything that comes in a paper or plastic box.

7. Avoid canned and fresh fish. Overfishing and trash has decimated the fish populations, and the world's coral reefs and turned the oceans into trash dumps.

No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.

by John Donne

When I was young I occasionally stopped by a pub for a drink. In 1986 I did that in the city in the Black Forest of Germany, in Freiburg-im-Breisgau. It was ANZAC Day. I convinced the pianist to play Walzing Matilda, Lothar offered me a drink....
