    How do we bring human-centric peace on Earth? Likely impossible without serious abdication of key realities of being a human. Things like privacy, travel, speech etc. I remember reading 1984 a long time ago and remarking about how peaceful life was in Oceana.

    I think it's more realistic to think about World Harmony rather than World Peace. Harmony allows for violence and death, as long as it's offset by opposite acts. I think the Earth right now is rather harmonious despite all the terrible news we see on TV. We're not dead yet!

        May 17 2011: No form violence is acceptable to me but World Peace is a fairy tale. The best thing you can do is model peaceful ways to those around you and teach it to your offspring.

        Ain't nothing I can do to curb violence in another country fueled by other mindsets.

    May 16 2011: The western world has achieved a level of peace where it's citizens can live with a high degree of freedom from fear of violence. Why do so many people believe that can not be extended to the entire world's population?

      May 17 2011: I am assuming that Sami is refering to peaceful world with no requirement for a country to arm itself in defence and where differences can be settled without bloodshed.
      I agree that the western world is peaceful to a certain degree but still has not reached this point (think dissident republicans!).

        May 17 2011: I was assuming that Sami would like to be able to walk around town without worrying about a bomb going off. Or travel into the country without fear of being kidnapped. Or not thinking it's a gunshot every time he hears a bang.

        My guess is that his day to day reality is a lot different then yours or mine.

      May 17 2011: I know that his reality is very different, I have witnessed it first hand. Yet I still believe that it is beyond at the very least our life time that total world peace can be achieved.

    May 18 2011: The way would be our youth and young adult population of today. If it were possible, this is how it would be done and it's quite simple. Worldwide teachings of our children from infant ages of today and don't let them ever lose their "inner child". Cultivate and grow it into the next generation of peace and prosperity. That's how you'd achieve it I think.
  • May 16 2011: You are talking about peace???hmmm,
    It can't be achieved by the only one person,he has to collect all hands who will support him.There are the various scums are there in the world who will always stops you when you are doing the good thing for mankind.
    Might be there are several possible ways to stop,It is the thing which my mind speaks,I am also confuse about what to do for the mankind,that will save our species and also makes the peace between us.first of all we have to be the stop the all production of nuclear weapons and also to follow the non violence,for better future..

    and there is one final solution is:follow the < Humanity >.
    Might be you may help me to think ,follow...Thanks for the great topic..

    May 16 2011: World peace is a concept that is completely unachievable. The freedom of the human mind means that there will always be people who have different opinions and feelings. The only way to create a peacefull planet would be to remove a persons ability to make decisions!

        May 17 2011: I am simply saying that it is the ability to make a decision that makes us human,therefore humans will always hold the ability to disagree and in my experience they will exercise this right on a daily (sometimes hourly) basis.

          I agree that we will always have different opinions, feelings, different decision making methods, and disagreements. That is part of what makes our world interesting. It would be pretty dull if we all thought, felt, acted and reacted in the same way. I think world peace IS possible, and it has to start with peace in ourselves...inner peace and a willingness to be open minded and open hearted. For me, the differences in each of us are the gifts we offer each other. We need to learn to share those gifts in a peaceful way:>)

        I agree with what you have said full heartedly. I do however not believe that there are enough people in the world who either share your view or would be willing to adopt this attitude.

    May 16 2011: Equality in educations, resources, and common goals.

    But first humans must understand themselves and realize we are already simplified and really not that complex. Between cognitive science and critical thinking ideologies that is pretty much everything involved with being human and responding to the world.

    Teach a man to reason and he will think for a life time! Nothing more true!

    Teach global reasoning ultimately bigger and bigger consensuses will be made. Keep asking this question and thinking in that direction, eventually it will become the reality of the world. Just do not think it will happen in your life time sir.

    To add, there are many conversations already created with this as the topic. This will probably be closed because of that. However I am just glad this is one of TED's top conversations.
