Peace and harmony---all well and dandy when you don't have a cult of a billion who can lie until they kill all who do not submit to their cult. ](*,)
Two major obstacles; that cult, and world gross overpopulation, unmentioned. [-X
They must be recognized before there is any hope of reaching the sustainability required for real world peace and harmony. #-o [-o<

Like the UN's Charter of Human Rights or the Rights of Children or the Ten Commandments, or even our most basic civic laws - all nice ideas. Excellent, really, if seen as a guideline. But ultimately, it really doesn't matter what politician, even in good faith, signed whatever "peaceful" agreement because agreements are broken all the time by individuals who break them. In the end, it is up to each individual, knowing or realizing that s/he is part of a whole, and simply behaving in a way that reflects it. There is no treaty, law, agreement, war or revolution that has ever, or will ever, bring it about. We've looked outside of ourselves for millenia and what we have come up with are ideals and beliefs and proclamations of peace or how to behave, but none of these, war nor revolution nor change of government, has ever created a different way of being. So, I would ask, why bother spending more time on such futile pursuits? Why create yet another charter that tells us all how it should be? Is that not just a way of escaping what actually is?
