peace on earth



"Though peace may be defined as the absence of violence many believe that peace is more than a negative condition. From this perspective, peace is a positive state in society where there is not only the absence of violence, but also the presence of justice. Proponents of the concept of positive peace argue that in a society where there is the structual and cultural oppression of one group by another, though there may be no violence, such a situation cannot be considered peace."

"There is also a call by some "peace thinkers" to abandon the idea of one peace. Rather, they promote the idea of many peaces. The thoughts behind this call is that there is no one, correct way to define peace. Rather, peace should be seen as a plurality."
