The meaning of real peace.



What does peace even mean? What does it mean to you? 

I just wanted to say a few words that came into my mind. All the terrible things that are happening all over the world show me, what propaganda can do to people's minds and how much the world needs peace. 
I pray for the people in Paris, Beirut, Syria. I pray for people all over the world. Of course I ask myself 'why is this happening?'. I can't understand why some people misuse religions. But don't forget that Islam and most of Muslim people don't have anything to do with these terrorism attacks. That is why I don't understand Pegida or the AFD, a German party. They norture from hate against refugees, against muslim people. They are scared from an Islamization of Germany. They grow hate in people's minds. We are all people living on one earth.

Even though there are different religions, different looking people, we are all the same. We have one heart beating for our dreams. 

If you see the differences of every human being you should learn to respect them. But concentrate on the things we have in common. Jews, Christians, Muslims have also a lot of things in common. The 'golden rule' is in nearly every religion the same. Why don't behave like this? 

Of course religion plays a huge role in nowadays society. Jewish teachers that are scared to wear a Kipah in Hamburg, children that don't want to say that they are Christian out of fear from other's thoughts, Muslims that are treated like unknown species in some parts of Germany or even Europe. Also take a look at the situation in India. How people fight against social wrongs caused by Narendra Modi. 

Loads of you probably ask yourself : why do we need religion, if religions make this out of people? Keep in mind that it is not the religion's intention to treat humans like this. It's the people that make a religion like this.

That is why I want everybody to receive a good, neutral education. We are the ones that can change the world and make it a better place. 

Something interesting about the meaning of peace by Nietzsche.


The means to real peace. — No government nowadays admits that it maintains an army so as to satisfy occasional thirsts for conquest; the army is supposed to be for defence. That morality which sanctions self-protection is called upon to be its advocate. But that means to reserve morality to oneself and to accuse one's neighbour of immorality, since he has to be thought of as ready for aggression and conquest if our own state is obliged to take thought of means of self-defence; moreover, when our neighbour denies any thirst for aggression just as
heatedly as our state does, and protests that he too maintains an army only for reasons of legitimate self-defence, our declaration of why we require an army declares our neighbour a hypocrite and cunning criminal who would be only too happy to pounce upon a harmless and unprepared victim and subdue him without a struggle. This is how all states now confront one another: they presuppose an evil disposition in their neighbour and a benevolent disposition in themselves. This presupposition, however, is a piece of inhumanity as bad as, if not worse than, a war would be; indeed, fundamentally it already constitutes an invitation to and cause of wars, because, as aforesaid, it imputes immorality to one's neighbour and thereby seems to provoke hostility and hostile acts on his part. The doctrine of the army as a means of self-defence must be renounced just as completely as the thirst for conquest. And perhaps there will come a great day on which a nation distinguished for wars and victories and for the highest development of military discipline and thinking, and accustomed to making the heaviest sacrifices on behalf of these things, will cry of its own free will: 'we shall shatter the sword'—and demolish its entire military machine down to its last foundations. To disarm while being the best armed, out of an elevation of sensibility—that is the means to real peace, which must always rest on a disposition for peace: whereas the so-called armed peace such as now parades about in every country is a disposition to fractiousness which trusts neither itself nor its neighbour and fails to lay down its arms half out of hatred, half out of fear. Better to perish than to hate and fear, and twofold better to perish than to make oneself hated and feared—this must one day become the supreme maxim of every individual state!— As is well known, our liberal representatives of the people lack the time to reflect on the nature of man: otherwise they would know that they labour in vain when they work for a 'gradual reduction of the military burden'. On the contrary, it is only when this kind of distress is at its greatest that the only kind of god that can help here will be closest at hand. The tree of the glory of war can be destroyed only at a single stroke, by a lightning- bolt: lightning, however, as you well know, comes out of a cloud and from on high. — 


In: Nietzsche, Friedrich. Human, All Too Human: A Book For Free Spirits, Vol. II, §284. Trans. R.J. Hollingdale. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1986. 


Do you agree with Nietzsche's way to define the role of peace? 

Keep your head up, we are stronger than terrorism. The world needs every single one of us. We need peace more than anything else.
