TO SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE
THE HUMAN COST OF VIOLENCE,
IN OUR COMMUNITIES AND WORLD
What makes our virtual Centre For
Teaching Peace special?
We are promoting a successful,
results-oriented web site:
1. to motivate individuals, the general public, government,
nongovernment agencies, and business in a large way, to reduce violence and crime at: (i)
the individual level, (ii) family level, (iii) community level, and (iv) world level;
2. to provide a business-like, focussed approach to achieve peace goals;
3. to raise awareness, use new information technology, teach, learn,
network, work plan, recognize achievement, and act locally and globally.
We believe that most
violence is the result of unscrupulous leaders.
We believe to dramatically increase our achievements globally, we must
start with our own education and use an information based approach to change individual
and organizational behaviours and attitudes. What we learn at one level (eg. individual)
we can apply at other levels (eg. family, community, world). Finally, we are driven by one
thing: to make this world better for our children [see Overview;
see CCTP's Vision].
most important life skills are not being taught in schools or by parents (eg.
Social intelligence, conflict transformation, relationship building,
communications, peacebuilding, etc.)•
- As one of the foremost peace educators in the world, it is
clear to us that, in the next twenty years, we’re going to get the society
we’re creating now. But, we
have it in our power to build a better world … a world with peace.
- As Leaders in our Communities and Families with a Peace
Mission, if we want to increase our success,–
- Take the time to look at what we are doing now, and–
- What will we do in the near future, to make it a saner
and more socially intelligent place to live for all of us?
"...of course the people don't want war.... But, after
all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always
a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a
fascist dictatorship ...the people can always be brought to the bidding of
the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are
being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and
exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country" Hermann
Goering, Nazi [See more shocking quotes.]
“Bush and Blair both have been criticized at home since their WMD claims about
proved false. … In the March 22 memo from (British) Foreign Office political
director Ricketts to (British) Foreign Secretary (Jack) Straw, Ricketts outlined
how to win public and parliamentary support for a war in Britain: "We have
to be convincing that: the threat is so serious/imminent that it is worth
sending our troops to die for; it is qualitatively different from the threat
posed by other proliferators who are closer to achieving nuclear capability
(including Iran)." Blair's government has been criticized for
releasing an intelligence dossier on
before the war that warned Saddam could launch chemical or biological weapons
on 45 minutes' notice.”
Thomas Wagner, The Associated Press, Saturday 18 June 2005 [Editor’s
note: the desire for governments and other unscrupulous leaders to manipulate
people, will make this particular form of unthinking compliance more and more
prevalent in the future. It will be increasingly important for the society,
therefore, to understand the how and why of automatic influence.
