We Can End War
"There's something more powerful than all the armies in the world and that's an idea whose time has come." - Victor Hugo
What we need is a bold, unifying vision. Victor Hugo's famous quote stresses the great power of ideas over armies. This website is dedicated to one such idea whose time has come:
We can, within two generations from the time we officially resolve to do it, create a future in which was is not only unacceptable, it's abhorrent and obsolete.
Is This Only a Utopian Dream?
On this website you’ll find essays, a blog, book and movie reviews, links, and much more. Nine cornerstone essays (nav bar "Nine Cornerstones") describe efforts unified by the goal of ending war. Other articles and essays (nav bar "Overview") offer key insights into topics from the biology of war and sex differences to the role of women to how long it would take to end war. "An Action Plan" and the capstone essay "To Abolish War," combined with the nine cornerstones, describe a strategy for a nonviolent warfare transition to a more egalitarian, just, ecologically sustainable and peaceful future. This site offers a vision of hope for a future in which negotiation, mediation, and compromise—nonviolent means of resolving conflicts—will be the tools we choose.
