one of the most inspiring quotes I’ve ever read in my life. I believe that hate
is the primary act of violence. Yes, I was born as many of you in a country
where they teach you to hate your enemy and where they give you several
arguments to justify violence and make you picture hate as resistance, pride,
dignity, courage and sometimes manhood! Unfortunately, this education is
believe that justifying hate to a child is both shameful and tragic…
the human being grows in the international cycle of violence:
cartoons, weapon shaped toys, violent movies, violent video games…etc When the
good guys are the ones who kill the bad guys and the hero is Rambo or some
muscled guy with a ton of weapons, you know there is something wrong with this
doing it wrong.
of fact, as violence gained the real world, it had invaded the virtual one as
soon as it was created…
most noticeable phenomenon on the web is the massive use of fake profiles in
publishing hate comments, violent photos, racist pages and groups which target
young people and brainwash a lot of them…
èE-terrorism: a new
form of terrorism is spreading on the social networks.
peace makers themselves use networks to create virtual communities and
movements which bring people from different countries and religions together,
sometimes people “who are supposed to be ferocious historical enemies”. This is
the power of E-PEACE: when you create an unlimited exchange space to unify people
who normally aren’t even allowed to talk to each other, when you destroy the
ever inherited prejudices and let people get to know each other on their own, when
you break all the boundaries, get over all the taboos, when you say: READY TO
LIVE IN PEACE and I LOVE YOU!
Therefore, as once people like Matrin L. King, Gandhi, John Lennon and
Nelson Mandela tried to bring people together, today young leaders can make a
difference too, people “who let no man pull them low enough to hate him”.
