The Primary Question of Our Time

Prophetic voices secular and religious are warning us that humanity is entering into the opening stages of WWIII.

If we stay on this present course, futurists predict rapid and radically negative and downward trends in the quality of life on this planet beyond 2050.

Given all the war and more war on the evening news, drones on others today and drones on us tomorrow, it appears the only thing a large majority of humanity agrees upon is that it embraces the Age of Terror, some with great eagerness as war is their way.

Kick starting the Age of Peace 2050 Project in 2015 is one place to start building the wings of peace.
