"Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution".

The Single Most Important Idea
Needed to End War

The belief that it is possible

When this website was first envisioned (2003), most people were highly skeptical that humanity could ever escape the curse of war. If asked, "Do you believe it is possible for humans to create a future without war," the overwhelming majority of people answered, No.

No man gives generously of his hard-won financial resources to the bottomless pit of a lost cause.  

No woman works tirelessly to reach a goal her heart believes can never be reached.

No one passionately reaches out to enlist others in a campaign that's a fool's dream.  

No politicians will wage a campaign to end wars if they judge the idea to be ridiculous. We may admire Don Quixote's willingness and unswerving determination to dream the impossible dream, but we don't want to be him.

We can never build something magnificent if we don't believe in its value and in our ability to accomplish the task. To end wars, we must believe it is possible.

This website isn't intended to explain why or how ending war is possible. For that, see the book, Women, Power, and the Biology of Peace.1 Instead, the purpose here is
