Despite incontrovertible evidence of spreading wars and escalating global tensions, in the worlds of entertainment, politics and media, there is a deafening silence in the call for peace.
From millennials to boomers, from New York to Shanghai, across age groups and around the world, not a peep about peace.
Why? Is it because war, violence and bloodshed are big-entertainment, video-game and military-industrial-complex moneymakers, and Hollywood, Silicon Valley and arms manufacturers see no profit in selling and championing joy, beauty and peace on Earth?
In the absence of mass movements to elevate society to higher levels of consciousness — and the money, commitment and influence to power them — Albert Einstein’s prophesy will be fulfilled: “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”
