  2. I love and admire Johan Galtung, but I wish instead of being what you rightly all him, “a noted pioneer in the field of Peace Studies”, we could call “a noted pioneer in the field of PEACE”

    PEACE is our RIGHT.

    The War industry exists for politicians to organise wars. By accepting the War industry and their “users”, the Armed Forces, we can endlessly ‘study’ Peace and Peace will never come.
