Protecting the environment through energy efficiency and the use of renewable, safe, nonpolluting energy sources such as wind and solar

Ending special interest control of our politics through (1) elimination of PACs and soft money, (2) public sponsorship of election campaigns, and (3) prevention of lobbying by former public servants on behalf of domestic and foreign interests

Promoting more prosperous and harmonious international relations by shifting our foreign policy away from the export of weapons towards the export of U.S. know-how and technical assistance in key areas, such as business, entrepreneurship, education, sustainable agriculture, and environmental technologies

The Idea:
Research shows that conflict and violence is fueled by deep-seated social stress-including acute racial, ethnic, and religious tensions. Supporting scientifically verified approaches will prevent terrorism, reduce crime and violence, and eliminate warfare. These approaches diffuse such stress, disarming conflict at its very basis, and thereby preventing conflicts before they begin and creating a permanent, positive peace.

The Problem:
As you sow, so shall you reap! The United States continues to sow the seeds of death, destruction, stress and tension throughout the world. These seeds grow into the hatred and resentment that spawns terrorist activities against the United States as well as stress and tension domestically.

Conventional strategies of defense, such as large standing armies, nuclear overkill, and even "Star Wars"-style anti-missile shields, are increasingly irrelevant. America's ability to deliver massive retaliation affords little deterrence to terrorists, who are anticipating such retaliation and feed on the associated escalation of violence and the potential spread of conflict.

Yet our government continues to rely on these outdated, conventional strategies in order to "create peace". We continue to react to conflict, crime and violence whether domestically or internationally because human designed conflict exists within our frame of reference. We can use all the force known to mankind; we can blow a hole through the Earth and cripple the human enterprise, and still we will not eliminate conflict or violence because we have not removed the conditions that spawn it.

A Perspective:
Consider that the United Nations charter states, "Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is the minds of men that the defenses of peace must be constructed;"

A Solution:
Promote more harmonious and life-supporting international relations by co-creating solutions that are sustainable and create independence, and by exporting American know-how in areas such as consciousness-based education, sustainable/organic agriculture, preventative/natural health care and sustainable business practices, programs that nourish and promote life, thereby sowing the seeds of trust and friendship among nations.

Promote the creation of a Department of Peace in our government - a true peacekeeping force trained to create peace both domestically and internationally by using the most advanced, cutting-edge discoveries in quantum mechanics, neuroscience, and human consciousness - diffusing acute social stress, including the acute religious and ethnic tensions that underlie most violence and acts of terrorism.

Focus on conflict resolution, prevention, mediation and other nonviolent forms of creating peace, including restorative justice, enlightened sentencing, educational programs that enliven the consciousness and reduce stress and tension, health care programs that create a health individual, and the creation of a Peace Academy that focuses on peace creating technologies.
