Imagine The Demilitarization Of The World

“Imagine” by John Lennon didn’t seem outrageous. 

It seemed like a love song.

Yet the Dalai Lama says the same thing in simple words, “There is a wonderful verse in the Bible about turning swords into plough shares.  It’s a lovely image, a weapon transformed into a tool to serve basic human needs, symbolic of an attitude of inner and outer disarmament.  In the spirit of this ancient message, I think it is important that we stress today the urgency of a policy that is long overdue:  the demilitarization of the entire planet.”

The definition of ‘Outrageous’ is shockingly, bad or excessive, synonyms:  shocking, disgraceful, scandalous, atrocious, appalling, abhorrent, monstrous, heinous.

To oppose the morals of our time may appear wrong.

Perhaps, it may be time to reevaluate our morals regarding armament.
