The premise is wrong.

Humans do not love nor desire peace.

Yes, maybe the premise is wrong. Smile

I do.

I long for a world in which everyone can live as they want as long as they don't hurt each other.

You may say that I'm a dreamer. But I'm not the only one.

As a person I do too...

I think however, as a species, humankind, does not. Smile

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can

I doubt it.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Nowhere better exemplified, tommy, than in John lennon's song. A hymn to nihilism and anti-humanism.

Funny the guy who wrote that seemed to have a LOT of posessions didn't he? Or at least certainly the guy who sang it. (Not sure it was the same guy.)

Herman Cain made "Imagine" all about corporate greed and pizza.

If it wasn't for pay and adulation, who'd take the ***ed job?
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

The pay isn't that great, but the travel & expense budget is outstanding! I don't think any private sector job comes close . . . an armor/missile-equipped 747 and a fleet of smaller planes . . . an armor-plated Canadian bus . . . limousines & SUVs . . . and hundreds of bodyguards, go-fers, and staffers . . . not to mention teleprompters . . .
