Time again for some good vibrations, today with Give Peace a Chance by John Lennon. Good sound, great lyrics!  Yes, who needs …ism! They are a source of separation and therefore of wars.[audio:http://www.positivefeeling.org/media/peace.mp3]

John Lennon is right. All these separating “…ism” promote war. Would he ever have had a chance to win the Nobel Prize of Peace? I guess not. They prefer to give it to bankers and environmentalists, not to speak of Arafat and Rabin, Kissinger, Obama and so on…. This is really a strange list! Prize Laureates

On the unorthodox pick, Asle Sveen, a historian remarked to the AFP: “There were enough good nominations in the area of conflict resolution in the strictest sense but the Nobel Committee is increasingly taking the fight to the fundamental reasons for which war is waged. It is not enough to make peace, this peace must be a just peace and the causes of war, such as hunger and poverty, must be treated at their roots. ”

I ask myself: How come then that one of the richest countries of the world – the U.S.A. – makes war after war ?
