Department of Peace

Chris Lugo has posted on Knoxviews an argument for a Department of Peace. He writes:
The primary function of a United States Department of Peace will be to research, articulate and facilitate nonviolent solutions to domestic and international conflict. The Department of Peace will facilitate the most cutting edge ways to wage peace. From nonviolent communication skills, to conflict resolution techniques and cultural relationship building, the Department of Peace will employ proven and effective strategies for diminishing violence in our country and in our world.
You can follow the work of the Peace Alliance Campaign to Establish a Department of Peace, learn about it, and get involved.

It is time.
