world peace and human nature

World peace is achievable according to philosophy professor emeritus of Empire State College, New York City Dr. John J. Neumaier.

Writing in the, Dr Neumaier confutes the view that warfare is an inevitable consequence of human nature.

"Itís true that violent social conflict has been around for as long as recorded history, but this doesnít make it a law of nature."

"[T]heoretically at least, it is not impossible for human beings to abolish war and eventually achieve permanent peace."

"Whether humanity will be sufficiently rational to end the recourse to war before a nuclear holocaust puts an end to civilization (or indeed to humanity itself) is another question."

Dr Neumaier suggests that "[m]ost of all we need to join in common actions in behalf of peace and social justice, here and abroad".

Since relations between women and men are the driving force or engine room of culture, arguably the most significant action to achieve world peace provides a balance of power between women and men, notably government comprising women's and men's legislatures presided over by an executive of elders accompanied by courts of women's and men's jurisdiction.
