War or Peace

United Nations building in New York City - Bernard Buffet Print of the United Nations building in New York City – Bernard Buffet artist. This was the first thing my husband, Patrick Shannon O’Brien, and I bought for our home-to-be in 1959.

Here are suggested issues in your personal life and in governments whose result can be a matter of choice.  Pick one to work on as you take this journey into the Interactive Peace Museum.

An Issue of War or Peace

1.  Your neighbor is shooting at your pets with a BB gun.  How do you stop them from doing this?

2.  The President of the country in which you live states that there are Weapons of Mass Destruction
in a distant country and he is going to war.  The U.S. and the Iraq War is a current example.  What could the government do to stop going to war?  What could you do?

3.  Two contiguous countries debate where their boundaries meet.  How can they resolve this peacefully?

or choose your own issue.  Make sure to state the issue clearly.  Write it out on a piece of paper.
In fact, you might want to jot down the various paths you have taken as you venture through the Museum.

After you have picked one issue to work on, scroll down and pick three things you could do to resolve this issue.  If you would like to read a prayer before going on, click here.  If you would like to walk a labyrinth to meditate on your issue before starting, click here.  http://www.lessons4living.com/finger_labyrinth.htm   One way to walk the labyrinth which you might like:  First circle:  state your issue, Second Circle:  state the emotions around the issue.  Third Circle:  State the physical and economic ramifications of your issue.  Fourth Circle:  How does this issue effect you personally and spiritually?  Fifth Circle:  Ask whoever is your highest power to help you.  Sixth Circle:  You get a manifestation.  It may be what you already thought, but it may be something completely different.  Seventh Circle:  You get the first step.  Middle:  Relax-don’t think.  As you come out of the labyrinth, in each circle think about what you learned.  Peace!

For those who question whether their thoughts effect others, click here for a fascinating experiment:

http://www.masaru-emoto.net/english/e_ome_home.html

1.  Below are various techniques & steps you may choose to take to address your Issue of War or Peace.
Click on the three which you think would be most helpful.

2.  After picking the three techniques/steps you think would be most helpful, research each by
a)  Clicking on the suggested web links  and
b)  Research each technique/step on the web; in your library; with an expert of your choice.

3.  If you would like to clarify your learning:
a.  List your issue.
b.  List the three choices you made and detail the research you have done on each.
c.  State why you think that step or technique will work or not work.  You might want to consider some of the questions
below in your analysis:
1.  Is the step pro-active or reactive?
2.  Can the step be done by yourself or do you need to create or join an organization?
3.  Does the step mean that the culture in which you live has to change?  In what way?
4.  Does the step mean that the structure of your government has to change?  In what way?
5.  Is this a step to be taken world-wide, country-wide or on a smaller basis?
6.  If this is a step you can take by yourself, what are the risks involved?
d.  State what you think the results of your intervention will be.
e.  State what you might want to do next, if anything.  (examples:  1.  form a discussion group through email or in
your geographic area  2.   do further research.

4.  If you would like,  send your summary in an email to the author of the Interactive Peace Museum.  I would be happy to
learn from you what you think of the Interactive Peace Museum, what you liked about it, and what could be improved.
If you have techniques or steps and links you think would be useful in this website, please send them to me.  Thanks!

1. Ask an expert in Conflict
Resolution to work
with you and the other party. For information

2. Sign up to join the Army, Navy or Marines. That way you don’t have to
worry about war or peace. You have
chosen! You might get an education
after your stint in the service – leading
to a better job. (revised 09) http://www.writing.com/main/view

3. If the head of your government
takes the country to war, don’t
disagree or you will be termed unpatriotic. Try to silence anyone
who disagrees with you by calling
them “traitors”. (revised 09) http://rethinkafghanistan.

4. Establish a Civilian Service for
Peace. Originally set up as an alternative to
Military Service. All those who, for
religious or moral reasons, did not
wish to bear arms could thus take
an active part in actions of
reconciliation, development,
Civil Rights advancement or
protection of the environment instead of fighting for the defense of Peace, they were able to build it up.A long term objective may well be the gradual substitution of civil for military structures.

17. ” Addressing Root Causes – including
peace building and meeting people’s
basic human needs as well as
transforming deep structures and deep cultures of violence, transforming social, economic, and political systems which
are themselves rooted upon and
based in violence and inequality,
including creating at every level social, political, and economic democracy – people’s power.” Johan Galtung

in all its forms, from the micro-
level to the macro, including
physical, emotional,
psychological and verbal, working
to end domestic violence, sexual violence, and the institutions and structures of violence and war.”

22. Use non lethal war tactics as suggested by a United States Air
Force Research team – called the Sunshine Project:
1) Expose enemy troops to powerful aphrodisiacs in order to distract
them into lustful hookups with each other (irrespective of gender).
2) Give the enemy severe halitosis
(so they could be detected within a civilian population).
3) Overrun enemy positions with
rats or wasps.
4) Create waves of fecal gas. http://marcyfrommaui.powerful

27. Social Investments were
initiated in the U.S. in the 1920’s. Europeans had to wait until the
1980’s before they could invest in
morally, socially, and
environmentally correct
companies. A socially controlled economy allows investors to live
up to their principles. Instead of giving their support to companies
that turn out weapons, pollute the environment or have something to
do with tobacco, alcohol, gambling
or child labor in third world sweatshops.
