Submission is not Cooperation; Thoughts on True Peace

“If you want to make peace, you don’t talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies.” Moshe Dayan

……………………………………

The great Israeli leader and military man, Moshe Dayan, was certainly on the right track when he made this statement many years ago. I think Israel Kalman, the bullying expert from New York, would agree with him. We (a collective, global  “we”) are often under a devastating impression that, if we can just overpower another person or another group enough, they will willingly follow us wherever we go. They follow because they have ropes around their necks.

The real question is: Will they follow when the oppression is removed?

At best, force and coercion are only temporary. True peace involves communication and free-will cooperation.
