Ummm...

Who does "our" refer to?

What are the "ends" being sought?

What are the "means" being employed?

what I'm saying is that any ends obtained (whatever they may be) will only be as good as the means by which those ends were obtained


which is to say that any peace brought about by gunfire will not be a peace that last

I agree Visions.

Choosing the right tool or means to achieve the right end is important. People should understand what cause to use to produce the desired effect.

Along my current journey, it was revealed to me that peace does not always require peaceful action.

peace is balance

Balance is achieved thru conflict

Whether it be in an ecosystem

Or

Inside your body

Or

In your mind


The means to achieve balance is determined by the opposing force
