>> I have, therefore, chosen this time and this place to discuss a topic
>> on which ignorance too often abounds and the truth is too rarely
>> perceived -- yet it is the most important topic on earth: world peace.
>> What kind of peace do I mean? What kind of peace do we seek? Not
>> a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not
>> the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking
>> about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth
>> living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and
>> to build a better life for their children--not merely peace for
>> Americans but peace for all men and women--not merely peace in our
>> time but peace for all time.
>> I speak of peace, therefore, as the necessary rational end of
>> rational men. I realize that the pursuit of peace is not as dramatic
>> as the pursuit of war--and frequently the words of the pursuer fall on
>> deaf ears. But we have no more urgent task.
>> First: Let us examine our attitude toward peace itself. Too many
>> of us think it is impossible. Too many think it unreal. But that is a
>> dangerous, defeatist belief. It leads to the conclusion that war is
>> inevitable--that mankind is DOOMED--that we are gripped by forces we
>> cannot control.
>> We need not accept that view. Our problems are manmade--
>> therefore, they can be solved by man. And man can be as big as he
>> wants. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings. Man's
>> reason and spirit have often solved the seemingly unsolvable--and we
>> believe they can do it again.
>> Let us focus instead on a more practical, more attainable peace--
>> based not on a sudden revolution in human nature but on a gradual
>> evolution in human institutions--on a series of concrete actions and
>> effective agreements which are in the interest of all concerned. There
>> is no single, simple key to this peace--no grand or magic formula to
>> be adopted by one or two powers. Genuine peace must be the product of
>> many nations, the sum of many acts. It must be dynamic, not static,
>> changing to meet the challenge of each new generation. For peace is a
>> process--a way of solving problems.
>> With such a peace, there will still be quarrels and conflicting
>> interests, as there are within families and nations. World peace, like
>> community peace, does not require that each man love his neighbor--it
>> requires only that they live together in mutual tolerance, submitting
>> their disputes to a just and peaceful settlement. And history teaches
>> us that enmities between nations, as between individuals, do not last
>> forever. However fixed our likes and dislikes may seem, the tide of
>> time and events will often bring surprising changes in the relations
>> between nations and neighbors.
>> So, let us not be blind to our differences--but let us also direct
>> attention to our common interests and to the means by which those
>> differences can be resolved. And if we cannot end now our differences,
>> at least we can help make the world safe for diversity. For, in the
>> final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this
>> small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our
>> children's future. And we are all mortal.

> It is the folly of good men who think that Peace is obtainable without

> The world is like a tree, the branches are the various nations and
