Joseph White (Santa Barbara City College) has started a project called “A Year Without War”. The goal of the project is just like it sounds–to have one year without war. The year is 2020. White and his students hope to have reached 765 million people by that time.
The story is here, and the project website is here.
Well, clearly there’s something in the air. Human beings want to get away from war as a means of conflict resolution. While conflict is inevitable, war cannot be used as a resolution. There must be other methods to bring about nonviolence. Throughout the duration of this project, we will essentially be lobbying relentlessly towards one year without war — the year 2020.
