War Has Been Abolished And Is Now Illegal; International Peace Quotes, Songs And Stories

Did you know war has been outlawed internationally? So why are groups and nations still using weapons and violence? Shouldn’t all weapons of mass destruction be outlawed and banned as well, as a followup?

WARS HAVE BEEN OUTLAWED, SO WHY ARE THEY STILL GOING ON? WHO IS PARTICIPATING ILLEGALLY? 

The End Of All Wars; Kellogg–Briand Pact Abolished And Outlawed All Warmongering

TOTAL BUDGET FOR DEPT OF PEACE IS ZERO, ZERO, ZERO, BUT DEPT OF WAR IS GETTING 1.3 TRILLION PER YEAR

The total budget for a Dept. Of Peace in the USA is (0) ZERO Dollars. At the same time, the Dept Of War(s) are funded to the tune of $1.3 TRILLION Dollars per year in the USA alone. This is symbolic for how much people value peace, and the value that they assign to wars. However, this value can be changed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Department_of_Peace

Why are nations spending money on something that is now illegal, immoral and unethical? Why not spend the same amount of money on peace, and peace building organizations, such as the Peace Corp?

Maybe it is time to assign new values, and vote in people who will change this balance of power and reverse this formula? What would the world look like if 1.3 TRILLION were spent on peace each year, and zero was spent on illegal wars and weapons? 

IMAGINE

Imagine there’s no heaven,
It’s easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today…

Imagine there’s no countries,
It isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace…

Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you’ll join us,
And the world will live as one.
John Lennon

“Man must put an end to war or war will put an end to man.”
John F. Kennedy

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, dedicated citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has”
Margaret Mead


“An eye for an eye only makes the whole world blind”
Mahatma Gandhi

“I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.”
– Dwight D. Eisenhower

Do not think lightly of good, that nothing will come of it. A whole water pot will fill up from dripping drops of water – 

Lord Buddha, Dhammapada v 122

All I am saying is give peace a chance 

John Lennon

“I believe in compulsory cannibalism. If people were forced to eat what they killed, there would be no more wars.”
Abbie Hoffman

War is much too serious a matter to be entrusted to the military.
Georges Clemenceau (1841 – 1929)

Either war is obsolete or men are.

Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.
John F. Kennedy

If we divide into two camps–even into violent and the nonviolent–and stand in one camp while attacking the other, the world will never have peace. We will always blame and condemn those we feel are responsible for wars and social injustice, without recognizing the degree of violence within ourselves. We must work on ourselves and also with those we condemn if we want to have a real impact.
-Ayya Khema, “Be An Island”

It is not enough to be compassionate. You must act.
Dali Lama

When I dare to be powerful- to use my strength in service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.
Audre Lorde

Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.”

On poverty

“When I see waste here, I feel angry on the inside. I don’t approve of myself getting angry. But it’s something you can’t help after seeing Ethiopia.” –Washington 1984. Mother Teresa
On the Nobel Peace Prize
“I choose the poverty of our poor people. But I am grateful to receive (the Nobel) in the name of the hungry, the naked, the homeless, of the crippled, of the blind, of the lepers, of all those people who feel unwanted, unloved, uncared-for throughout society, people that have become a burden to the society and are shunned by everyone.” — Accepting the Nobel Peace Prize, 1979. Mother Teresa
On war
“I have never been in a war before, but I have seen famine and death. I was asking (myself), ‘What do they feel when they do this?’ I don’t understand it. They are all children of God. Why do they do it? I don’t understand.” — Beirut 1982, during fighting between the Israeli army and Palestinian guerrillas. Mother Teresa
“Please choose the way of peace. … In the short term there may be winners and losers in this war that we all dread. But that never can, nor never will justify the suffering, pain and loss of life your weapons will cause.” — Letter to U.S. President George Bush and Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, January 1991. Mother Teresa

The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them 

George Orwell

The religion of Christ is peace and good will — the religion of Christendom is war and ill will.
W.S. Landor

In Germany, first they came for the communists and Gypsies and I did not speak out because I was not a communist nor a Gypsy.
Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. 
Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. 
Then they came for the Catholics and I did not speak out because I was a Protestant. 
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me.’ 
— Pastor Martin Niemoller (1892-1984)
People only think they are free in America — It looks more like the USSR to me. It is Soviet Style Government brought to you by the Busheviks.
Cindy Sheehan

— Thomas Jefferson. 
“If we make peaceful revolution impossible, we make violent revolution inevitable.”
— John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
Fundamentalism isn’t about religion. It’s about power.
Salman Rushdie
“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense.”
Dwight Eisenhower
“It is not enough to win a war, it is more important to organize the peace” 
Aristotle

“This great and powerful force-the accumulated wealth of the United States-has taken over all the functions of Government, Congress, the issue of money, and banking and the army and navy
in order to have a band of mercenaries to do their bidding and protect their stolen property.”
~ Senator Richard Pettigrew
“St. Augustine tells the story of a pirate captured by Alexander the Great who asked him “how he dares molest the sea.” How dare you molest the whole world?” the pirate replied: because I do it with a little ship only, I am called a thief; you, doing it with a great navy, are called an Emperor.”
~ from Pirates & Emperors by Noam Chomsky
“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”
~ James Madison. Federalist 47.
“Propaganda is a soft weapon; hold it in your hands too long,
and it will move about like a snake, and strike the other way.”
~ Jean Anouilh
When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.
Jimi Hendrix
People have not been horrified by war to a sufficient extent …
War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector
enjoys the same reputation and prestige as the warrior does today.
~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy
“How far you can go without destroying from within
what you are trying to defend from without?”
~ Dwight D. Eisenhower
‘Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.’
~~ Mark Twain
Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.”
Edward Abbey
”What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty and democracy?” Gandhi
Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.
Harry S. Truman
“War does not determine who is right-only who is left.”
Bertrand Russell
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
There was a stump of a tree, and in the dark a thief came that way and said, That is a policeman. A young man waiting for his beloved saw it and thought it was his sweetheart. A child who had been told ghost stories took it for a ghost and began to shriek. But all the time it was the stump of a tree. We see the world as we are. That which we have inside, we see outside. ~ Vivekananda 
An old rabbi once asked his pupils how they could tell when the night had ended and the day had begun. “Could it be,” asked one of the students, “when you can see an animal in the distance and tell whether it’s a sheep or a dog?” “No”, answered the rabbi. Another asked, “Is it when you can look at a tree in the distance and tell whether it is a fig treee or a peach tree?” “No”, answered the rabbi. “Then when is it?” the pupils demanded. “It is when you can look on the face of any man or woman and see that it is your sister or brother. Because if you cannot see this, it is still night.” ~Tales of the Hasidim 
“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”
Mother Teresa ” 
May those who hold in their hands the fate of the nations take care to avoid anything that might make the situation in which we now find ourselves still more difficult and might still further endanger us. May they take to heart the wonderful words of the Apostle Paul: ‘As much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.’ Romans 12: 18 This is true not only for individuals for also for nations. May they go to the utmost limit of possibility in their effort to preserve the peace with each other, so that there may be time for the human spirit to grow strong and to act.”  
Albert Schweitzer 
“He who wants to do good, knocks at the gate; he who loves finds the gates open” 
Rabindranath Tagore
One who seeks delight in form seeks delight in suffering. One who seeks delight in suffering, I say, is not freed from suffering”
-Buddha

 President Eisenhower 1956
The motto of war is: ‘Let the strong survive; let the weak die.’ The motto of peace is: ‘Let the strong help the weak to survive.’ “
President Franklin D. Roosevelt 
“Hate begets hate; violence begets violence.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
‘We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love.’
Martin Luther King, Jr.
‘There is within human nature an amazing potential for goodness.’
Martin Luther King, Jr.
“All humanity is involed in a simple process, and all men are brothers. To the degree that I harm my brothers, no matter what he is doing to me, to that extend I am harming myself.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
‘For we must come to see that peace is not merely the absence of some negative force, it is the presence of a positive force.’
Martin Luther King, Jr.
 ‘We must never lose infinite hope.’
Martin Luther King, Jr.
‘Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.’
Martin Luther King, Jr.
‘It is no longer a choice between violence and nonviolence in this world, it’s nonviolence or nonexistence.’ 
Martin Luther King, Jr
As Jefferson put it when he succeeded Adams and repealed the Alien and Sedition Acts;
“Should we wander [from the essential principles of our government] in moments of error or alarm, let us hasten to retrace our steps and regain the road which alone leads to peace, liberty, and safety.”
Whenever you hear that someone else has been successful, rejoice. Always practice rejoicing for others–whether your friend or your enemy. If you cannot practice rejoicing, no matter how long you live, you will not be happy.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche
Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for October 2007
If any influential nation had the great spiritual strength to lay down its arms and appear with clean hands before the world, the world would be changed. I see no evidence that any influential nations has such great spiritual strength and courage. Therefore disarmament will be a slow process, motivated by the wish to survive.
Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words – Pg. 101
“I don’t see much improvement in man’s heart. The whole thing is in man’s heart: his desire, his greed, his lust, his pride, his ego. All of these things meshed together bring about sometimes a world war and sometimes a small war, but wars are going on everywhere, even in families. It’s a personal thing with each of us.”
Billy Graham
The old parties are husks, with no real soul within either, divided on artificial lines, boss-ridden and privilege-controlled, each a jumble of incongruous elements, and neither daring to speak out wisely and fearlessly on what should be said on the vital issues of the day.
Roosevelt
“No power but Congress can declare war, but what is the value of this constitutional provision, if the President of his own authority may make such military movements as must bring on war?” Daniel Webster (1782 – 1852)
Theodore Roosevelt
The price of war is newly placed grave stones, mangled bodies, shattered minds, broken hearts and homes, economic instability, depression and all its attendant miseries
Major General Smedley Butler

Via Jackson Person “It’s time.
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing 
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.” 
― Rumi
“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.” 
― Masanobu Fukuoka, The One-Straw Revolution
I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.
– Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969)
If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart.

SUMMARY

Peace is the ONLY reality and it starts within. War is the illusion. Peace is the real value. Forgiveness is the only way to get to peace when starting from where most people are. True compassion means forgiving everyone for everything. The hardest person to forgive is oneself. War offers only the illusion of value. Peace offers sustainability, while war offers certain destruction of all life. Peace offers a secure future while nuclear weapons and nuclear power plants guarantee the destruction of all humanity.

Peace is the real value and worth investing in or donating something for, while war is a total waste of money. Peace is the way, while war is losing the way. Peace is the only worthwhile goal inside and outside, while war is the manifestation of fears and anger that are totally worthless and useless, other than to show the constrast between war and peace.

Peace is cheap, war is becoming more and more expensive. Peace promotes health, while war destroys it. Peace promotes harmony and brotherhood, while war destroys this. Peace values and respects all religions and paths, while war promotes division and hatred. Peace promotes more peace, especially if it is taught in school via non violent communications methods and alternatives to violence options. War only plants the seeds for more wars, bigger wars and Armageddon.

The End Of All Wars; Kellogg–Briand Pact Abolished And Outlawed All Warmongering

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-end-of-all-wars-kelloggbriand-pact.html

War and WMD; what are they good for? Nothing. War has been abolished, so what is humanity waiting for? Isn’t it time to send all of the troops home to their wives and families? Isn’t it time to destroy all WMD? Isn’t it time to dismantle all of the weapons and turn them into plowshares? If not now, when?
