Upholding the policy of peace of the Kellogg Briand Pact of 1928 which is an international agreement still on the books is needed right now.
In 1928 many countries of the world agreed to peaceful policies of peace and to refrain from war by signing the Kellogg Briand Pact. As we know the peace agreement broke down quickly there after but the pact still remains on the books as international law. Is it possible for us to return to this pact and get back on tract from here. Humanity can never win at war and the quicker we realize this the better our chances at survival are. Please do all that you can to help humanity eliminate war as a foreign policy option. All of our discoveries on Earth will become meaningless if we continue on destructive paths. We have to stay focused on saving life on Earth, on improving our environment, dealing with waste management, harnessing renewable energy, feeding the hungry battling disease. We do not have the time, money or effort for war. Our economy may collapse if we continue to build the national debt to pay for destructive wars. We need to promote peace and engage all leaders and people into that process. We have to be smarter than falling for the old tricks that have goated humans into fighting since the beginning of time. Have we not learned anything in all these centuries? Are we capable of a mass destruction of all weapons on Earth and living just as simple humans, not armed to the hilt with the ability to destroy all life on Earth?
