Kamala Sarup: Peace A Chance To See

Peace A Chance To See

By Kamala Sarup

If 2005 was the Year of Allocation, primarily devoted to working out deals concerning violence, agreements and peace and political conflicts, what can the suspecting world expect in 2006?

The war must be wind down, and world will begin the slow march home under the "Peace With Honor" Banner, saving face and grace for our boys and girls in uniform. The war will be studied and dissected for lessons to be applied to future. World will continue to be the most advanced locus of positive forward thinking. The true democracy will begin the massive task of upgrading and improving world's ponderous economy. Vast, vast fortunes will be made as the lot in life of the average people is inexorably improved. The infrastructure improvements alone will take years to complete and add billions and billions of dollars to the economy. Light speed thinking and below the surface action will continue to serve world well.

So what we have to do? We must fight for the peace effectively. War or violence means more blood and economy lost, which affect the prices of good bought by ordinary people more than by rich ones. Thus, give a peace chance to see. Hard to see how it can do worse.

Our priorities are more similar to those of the peace loving people in the world. So as long a people persist in bringing peace in the world, people will not tire of spending their time and efforts to bring peace. In this case, violence will be defeated. However, it will take a long time.

Peace is a vast subject. Peace is important in a democracy. Peace also promote in work and business pursuits too. Democracy can't function unless the general population has at least the ability to work in security. True, our politicians not very often, speak of the useful to win peace.

Violence bring pains, reversals, etc., but as people learn more about the effects of violence and vice-versa, these deleterious effects will be overcome. If eventually people overcomes peace resolutions, it will simply corporate peace efforts. We have to make a peace statements in a civil manner when addressing people.

A peace based economy is dependent on many inventions, but two groups of them are memorable: forgiveness and love.

We all believe, in 2006, the world will have a spirited peace and will quietly continue to negotiate behind the scenes with various groups. What will emerge will be remarkably similar to what went in with the exception that people in the region will begin to see things and events slightly differently.

If violence fails, so much to the good for the people.
