    A good economic system that is fair and free and open to all who wants to participate. This path to prosperity is the prerequisite for a peaceful society.

      Very true Jack Lee, thank you. But that economic system should be based on justice and equality, right?

      yes, equality of opportunity but not equality of outcome. Justice meaning no foul play or crony capitalism. Everyone gets equally chance to succeed.

      I do agree that equality has to be in terms of opportunities and justice has to be for and by the people, but what do you say about the source of dispensing justice?

      That is the responsibility of a limited government. To maintain law and order and to insure equal playing field. No one get's special treatment. That is why we have police, FBI, SEC, FTC, ICE, ATF and many other law enforcement agencies...

      True, to discharge responsibilities one should have some sets of principles and standards that help understand what justice is all about, what do you say about those standards and principles?

      jackclee lmposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      I would fall back on our Constitution. All people are created equal, and endowed by our Creator with life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness...and that justice should be blind and applied equally...due process...

      Excellent Jack, wish we could realise accordingly and strive hard to achieve the same.

    In my opinion, people are just way too sensitive. They get upset over the littlest thing anymore.

      Thanks Greg. You mean to say people should be trained to be tolerant and patient?

      To be respectful of others too, which should start from birth in the family.

      Very true. Agreed.

      The authoritarian left has said in the name of love and tolerance, debate is labeled hate and dissenting views shall not be tolerated. It also cedes the morality to the most emotional/irrational person in the discussion, favoring tantrums over talk.

    The elimination of self-centerdness, something that is unfortunately a very innate human characteristic.

      Thanks Elijah, do you think self- centeredness is an obstacle for peace? It means it's a collective disease?

    2. jackclee lm profile image81
      jackclee lmposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      I totally disagree. It is good to be self-centered. That is our survival instinct. You cannot change human nature, but you can design laws that will keep it in harmony with the society at large.

    3. Dr CHE Sadaphal profile image72
      Dr CHE Sadaphalposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Self-centerdness is the obstacle for peace. Peace means nothing if I am the only one that has out-survived everything else that I exploited for my own self-gain. Laws are only as valid as the truth that animates it: e.g. slavery vs. 19th amendment.

    4. m abdullah javed profile image78
      m abdullah javedposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      But what do you day Jack if the self centeredness crosses the self-limits and harm others?

      jackclee lmposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      You are mis understanding me. You need to read Milton Frieman's book Free to Choose. He explains it better than I can. Greed is good to better our own lot but in the process make society better. The rising tide lift all boats...

    6. Dr CHE Sadaphal profile image72
      Dr CHE Sadaphalposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      I already read it so I understand you quite well. The book is a treatise on libertarian economics but peace is built upon more than financial interests. Greed is a daily experiment all over the world. The experiment has failed over and over again.

    7. jackclee lm profile image81
      jackclee lmposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Where has it failed? The only failure that is proven again and again is socialism and communism. Capitalism is the only free enterprise system that builds wealth and prosperity for the greatest number of people.

      You are debating a person who is not arguing about capitalism, neither am I debating economics in general. I am speaking about self-interest & global peace.

    I agree with Jack Lee.  Judging by the most peaceful countries in the world, it appears a Socialist government is best.  In addition, there needs to be ZERO corruption in the government.  In America, cities with the lowest crime rates tend to have the least corruption, and vice versa.

      Yoleen if it's so in a socialist form of government, then we need to understand the dynamics of corruption and in what way it helps is establishing peace in the society.

      And the ones with the highest crime and riots have been Democrat controlled for decades.

      I was referring to Scandinavian countries like Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

    I think the chant "no justice, no peace" is not only a threat to an unfair status quo but also a reflection of the reality that unfairness in the world engenders violence. People who are disenfranchised and oppressed  have little to lose. Anyone who has been powerless and poor or shunned and disregarded knows the effects of exclusion. Rage, panic, fear, hopelessness-- they are very human responses to being dehumanized. If we want peace, we have to work for an economic, political and social justice that is inclusive of all the world's people. We must be mindful of how we use the world's resources and stop demonizing people with whom we disagree like frightened children. We have to realize that, as your graphic shows, people of all races and faiths deserve a place in the circle of humanity.

      The left wing is the establishment, those protesting violently are on the left. The authoritarian left is fomenting violence to justify more power, the opposite of peace.

    There is this seemingly natural development in people to blame other people for their problems and to rely on other people to fix them. These tandem traits result in a conflict. Peace is the absence of conflict. Until people start accepting responsibility for themselves and their peacefulness and without expectation of human help learn to be self sufficient there will always be conflict. The idea of taking which is another's is not healthy going from any spectrum of society to the other.
    When I accept responsibility for my own happiness I do not expect or project that need on another.
    How can there be conflict if peace is self sustained?
    Governments, religions, nations and classes are not the cause of conflict. People are.

    If everybody can find faults in his/her, If I can only see my faults, if you can see your faults only, then this will be the mantra to bring peace in our personal life, in our family, in our neighborhood, in our locality, in our community, thus in the whole society.

    These days, we're very busy in finding faults in others. So we should stop doing this practice in order to achieve peace and tranquility.

      Good. You mean to say we should introspect ourselves.

      Exactly that is. Without examining your thoughts, how would you know that whether you're wrong or right!
