Welcome to a page dedicated to Peace in our time.

The Path to Peace is discussed in ‘
Dear Ahed.. The Game of War and a Path to Peace’, a book by Argentinean Pianist and peace campaigner, Alberto Portugheis, which is now available from book shops and from Amazon books. In Dear Ahed , which is a collection of radical and compassionate essays and letters, Portugheis demonstrates that through ‘education’, through understanding the way words are used, a society could be created that is free from war.

Portugheis explores how and why language has been used to separate societies, to control and antagonize people, demonstrating, how today, well educated and talented writers with extensive knowledge of the lexicon and assistance of psychologists together with scientists who have great expertise on mind control’, help politicians organise chaos, violence and wars as they use techniques to create fear in the population, so that they can offer us protection.

‘We should not underestimate the capacity of well-run propaganda systems to drive people to irrational, murderous, and suicidal behaviour’.

‘We need not stride resolutely towards catastrophe merely because those are the marching orders’. Noam Chomsky

'The majority of politicians, on the evidence available to us, are interested not in truth but in power and in the maintenance of that power. To maintain that power it is essential that people remain in ignorance, that they live in ignorance of the truth, even the truth of their own lives. What surrounds us therefore is a vast tapestry of lies, upon which we feed'. Harold Pinter. .(Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech).
