Build a Peace Economy

Build a Peace Economy!

This photo is from a while ago, this past October third. But I held this same sign earlier tonight, January second, during a weekly peace vigil that I participate in.

We live in a war economy. War is not working. War is destructive—harmful and unproductive. War is ineffective toward true resolution of conflict. Let's build a peace economy, an economy that is truly life-serving.

Nonviolence and social/ecological/economic/political justice practiced in daily life: that is the path to peace. Peace is possible. Let's build an economy based on peace—not war. Let's replace the war economy with a peace economy!
