Hubs across the world unite for peace.

    I think we could use more peace and understanding, less tolerating of governments, political and religious extremists and news media pushing us farther apart.  I am suggesting a peace ring where people from around the world do a hub on peace and link together.   Thoughts?

      Here is the link to get started.  I hope that I did it correctly.

    Nice idea, but how would we go about it?  Just write and then link to the others?

    That was my initial thought, but hopefully we would have so many that it would prove difficult to link all of them.  Any thoughts from the people with Know How would be appreciated.
    Perhaps also post a picture to identify that it was a world peace link hub.

    Paper Moon, why don't you start a request, and then post the link to the request here in this thread so that people can go answer it.  (Like the HubMob does things!)

    I'll even make a graphic that everyone can use in their hubs. smile

    You're right, putting the links would require regular updating. Why don't we just start a thread where we can post a link to our peace hub once it's published. And probably share a peace picture/logo that we could put on out peace hub - to signify inclusion in the circle of peace hubs cool

    We could inundate Facebook.  Publish the peace hub via hubpages, link to your FB page and get it out there.  Start a separate Group on FB?  Let it spread via friends of friends of friends.  Maybe everyone publish on the same day - that would create an energetic push and let it ripple or wave out over a month. smile  Ripple effect would be via comments and straggling hubs to keep the momentum going.
    I'm in.

    Once you peel back the layers of regurgitated rhetoric and seemingly endless mindless chatter,it is possible to view the universal truth.The complexity of life is beautiful in it's simplicity.Regardless of your philisophical,metaphysical,theoretical or politcal leanings,we all need each other.It is simply that simple,how unfortunate that truth is lost in the rhetorical pathos of the chattering classes.The collective ignorant and apethetic masses are convinced that truth,love and personal peace will be found with the purchase of the later and greater gizmo and they submit,only to be left with a bill and a bill of sale.The solution,to this emptiness, proposed by those with the power of influence is to get back out there and get the latest and greatest gizmo and it will all be better,4 out of 5 people said so!This fraudulent circle continues and the robber barons have Madoff with your time,labor,liberty and future.As the oligarchs have been paid off with your time,liberty,labor and future.

    Perhaps it is time for a change of perspective and a lifting of the cleansing mists of memory and once again remember what it means to be human.The naked truth in it's simplest form,is that every exhalation you make,regardless of your opinion or rhetoric,sustains nature.The very nature that sustains my own existence with every inhalation,regardless of my opinions or rhetoric.That is the true circle of life.

    I like this idea,the alternative is our continued collective descent into anarchy and the brave new world that will rise from the ashes of the old.I am in but I can offer no solutions for peace,only a glimpse of our collective trajectory and our shared destiny without peace or civility.A world of lost liberties,existentialism and truth,baptised by fire with everyone left with nothing but the shallow emptiness of a bill of sale.I for one am ready to demand a refund.

    What a lovely and important idea. I look forward to reading the peace hubs as I am so sick of all the negativity on TV, radio, from people. We need some kind of positive forward momentum if we, as a planet, are going to accomplish anything.
