ESTABLISH A WORLD PEACE FORCE, THEN DISARM ALL NATIONS

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Even a movement requiring 100 years for completion
must begin with year one.
How many of the 7 billion people living on the Earth
would favor giving up their national armed forces
if there were a World Peace Force
to maintain world law-and-order?
Today probably less than 5% would agree to disarm.
But if each year this percentage
could be increased by 1 percentage point,
then about 100 years from now,
the World Peace Force would be fully operational.

Local police forces would still be required
to enforce all local, state, and national laws.
But the World Peace Force would prevent genocide
and keep all conflicts between nations non-violent.

This seminar will take place by means of a Facebook Group
of the same name: PEACE ON EARTH:
ESTABLISH A WORLD PEACE FORCE, THEN DISARM ALL NATIONS:
http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/199878276819122/?fref=ts
We will present and discuss one theme per week.

When enough people have joined the Facebook Group,
the list of themes will be published here.

What might emerge from this EXCO group?
Do you want to discover others who dream of making peace on Earth?
While we work to end particular wars,
can we imagine ways in which such wars could have been prevented?
Spread the word among all your friends committed to peace.
