Q: What is the path to peace?


[from left] Margot Bass: “Since I am a biologist, I think there has to be a balance between the hawk population and doves. If there are too many doves the hawks take over and if there are too many hawks there’s over-agressiveness.”
Jane Bass: “The only path is a vast reduction in the world’s population, so there is not a constant competition for resources.”

Caitlin Arlotta: “Full bellies.”
Edward “Butch” Rudolph Warren: “We have to learn to get along with each other all over the world, make friends from other countries.”
Lucy Dorenfeld: “A walk in the woods.”
Jim Litchfield: “I think it’s probably just good cooking.”
Al Lacey:
“Women taking over. There’s no doubt in my mind about this. If you mess
with me I’m going to punch you in the face. If you mess with a woman,
she’ll come up with a different solution.”
Gabriel Shandler:
“I think everyone has to get along with each other, that includes no
more racism, and obviously, no war. We have to get through this
recession that’s stressing a lot of people and bringing out the worst
in people.”

  1. Feeling free from fear and free to be generous.
    Being persistent to love and disarm and stand up for self and others when some dominate and waste.
    Catching self from falling into aggression to stop, discern the problem and generate solutions before approaching offender to collaborate.
