"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God."
Doesn't seem to need much further interpretation, does it?
If you can figure out some way to make peace as profitable as war, maybe we'll get somewhere. Is it naive of me to suggest that we spend the money on feeding the hungry, putting roofs over the heads of the homeless? What if our military budget went to education? Environmental protection? Universal health care?
Funny thing is, I'm an optimist. Give us peace on earth and end this dreadful, dreadful war.
