Eric's personal declaration of peace begins: "When the lawn is too dry, we water it. When the room is too cold, we turn up the heat. When the dessert is too sour, we sweeten it. When a solution is too acidic, we add a base. The concept is simple, even for a child. But in one respect at least, this concept is lost to most of humankind. While lamenting the countless wars and conflicts which make our planet so dangerous to human life, we arm our young men and women to the teeth and send them out to keep the peace. For some reason we cling to the notion that if we add just a touch more violence, just one more army to the battlefield, we’ll find true peace. Violence plus violence produces peace? How logical is that?"
