A theory of peace

Building direct structural cultural peace

There is a mainstream narrative:

Problem: There are dangerous and unruly classes and countries

If let loose life becomes brutish, nasty and short for all

Remedy: Economic-military-political-cultural rule from above

If vertical enough we get pax by rule of force, balance and law

This book challenges that and argues an alternative narrative:

Problem: There are traumas and conflicts to be mediated

There are cooperative equity and harmony projects to be built

Remedy: Mediate traumas and conflicts and we get negative peace

Build equitable projects with harmony and we get positive peace
