    This is a perfect companion quote to the previous one by Spinoza. In Peace Studies, yes, there is such a thing, there is a concept of Peace being a non static process, an ongoing transformative dynamic that must be cultivated and constantly nurtured. It is in contra-diction to conflict and violence, which like a cancer must always be fought and attacked again and again as hatred based conflict has an agressive tendency to return. To completely eradicate it takes dedication and an acceptance that peace is never permanent. This is why we call initiatives like resolving the Israel Palestinian conflict the Peace Process. It is hard work, requires patience, resilience, presistence, and sweat!

    Peace doesn't require any sweat at all. All you have to do to achieve peace is surrender to your enemies and do what they want. The struggle comes in wanting to live your own life as you see fit.

    Funny how the Marine Corps told me the same thing.
