Prerequisites to Planetary Peace: A Nonkilling Checklist
POETRY FORMAT, 8 October 2012

A Rhymed Reflection
In a critical perspective, all current political systems would be taught
Their peace-nonviolence-nonkilling common denominators would be sought
The first major required application of planetary peace:
all communities causing all forms of interethnic violence to cease
All kinds of nuclear war would be sustainably prevented
ways of coping with urban violence would be invented
Planetary Peace would be a global program in individual/social transformation
carried out in all school curricula through nonviolence-and-nonkilling education
