"I believe that as soon as people want peace in the world they can have it. The only trouble is they are not aware they can get it. It's all down to you, mate …All we are saying is give peace a chance…All you need is love…Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one."-John Lennon

 Mankind is the only species that has the choice of annihilating itself. "Since the end of the Cold War, the world has spent more than $10 trillion on armaments. The Untied States alone spends approximately $100 million every day to keep its nuclear arsenal at the ready." [2]


American money proclaims "In God We Trust" but the facts on the ground are that we have become an empire of blasphemers, for what we trust in are weapons of destruction.
