Fondation for world peace

Increasing our knowledge of all cultures and societies, overcoming ignorance/fear/prejudice is a potential foundation for world peace. All conflict stems from prejudice of one sort or another, predudice springs from ignorance, 'the parent of fear,' and is substantiated by pride.

Academic History should be that of our World, without judgemental pride & prejudice and with open-minded discussion supporting evolving thinking, without expectation of conclusion. This would apply to the self-professed knowledgeable, as well as generational offspring.

As with all, individual choice is all we can depend on.
