I agree with Ariel. I have never even pondered positive peace but always had what is defined above as “negative peace” in mind. Having learned the distinction between the two is great because it almost makes me more passionate about establishing it. It gives me motivation and incentive to not only strive for peace but ways to achieve it as well. I think it is important to educate people about these two categories because generally peace is such a simple concept. For some, it’s as simple as putting up your two fingers, as no war or even as mutual disagreement. Defining it in more specific terms and emphasizing the need for sustainability of peace is important because it will help people devise a plan of action for the peace they are working towards. I know it makes me think personally, that what can I do not to only achieve peace or promote peace, but how I can promote the maintenance of it as well. At the same time, I must bring us back to my first point…….most people strive for immediate satisfaction rather than a large delay reward, is it even our issue to worry about sustainability when we are so far from achieving peace in the first place.
