Nathan,

Full marks for faith, but nobody who might be capable of making the world a better place is going to take notice of anything I say, even if they knew about it. OLO is just a place where people can sound off, express their opinions. There are public figures out there who would like to see the same things happen that you want to happen; they've been trying for years to make them happen, but there are not enough of them. The real world is not a particularly nice place, or at least too many of its occupants are not nice, and they are getting worse. All that most of us can do is try to live a good life and do no harm; help those we can, and hope for the best, but prepare for the worst

individual,
Where did you get the idea that the rioters in Stuttgart were (or were claiming to be) refugees from Islamic countries?

The BBC report at http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-53126464 gives a completely different impression.

Dear Nathan,

Peace without can only come from peace within.

If you can maintain your inner peace, then no matter what happens in the world, you will experience profound and permanent peace, so nothing can disturb you. The top of the sea could be wavy and stormy, but if you dive beneath those waves, you enter undisturbed, calm, stable waters.

People have tried for ages to create peace on the external, objective level and some well-meaning participants here just made similar suggestions as well, but this can only change very little because it goes against nature, because the age we live in now and for the next 426,879 years, is not a peaceful one (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kali_Yuga).

There used to be the "New Age" movement, which believed that the bitter age in which we live is about to end, or can be ended if only we do this or that. You may recall how some called the coming new age, "The Age of Aquarius". You CAN, personally, live in the Age of Aquarius by diving within, under the turbulent waters. However, you will not be able to carry the masses with you.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, in answering your very question, tried, but failed. He envisioned the necessary technology to turn the age, but despite all his monumental efforts he was unable to amass the numbers of people he needed, because peace in our times was not destined to be.

Here is his answer your question:
