Memorial Day always gets my attention. This is not a happy holiday. Do wars kill quite a few people? Well, World War II killed about 50 million people! And how many were terribly injured, lost family members or personal possessions and property? And besides death, pain, torture, detention, expense, destruction, and suffering from abnormal conditions …
By the 450,000 US cops, only about 1000 killings occur each year. Close to 99.8% kill nobody. But if just 1 cop could be convicted of an improper killing, and imprisoned, this could lead to more justice, less violence, and more peace for all Americans! Not one convicted in 2014 or 2015.
It should be a felony to seriously be intending, planning, preparing, and/or recruiting to commit violence against any person or persons for any reason. That’s not freedom of speech.

Murders and violence by terrorists and others would be preventable with The Peace Law recommended in Dr. Ed Marshall’s book The Peace Prescription, available on Amazon. Read on and contact your legislators to get it done.
Recruiting people to commit murder, as by ISIS, can be prevented by five steps. Military and personal weaponry for self-defense will be required until those steps are properly taken to reduce violence on both sides.
Check out the “jump-Starting America” plan for ending the unsuccessful War on Drugs, and other innovative problem solving. Dr. Ed’s books have real answers for real problems.
Korea was a single unified and mainly independent country for centuries until that all changed starting in the early 20th Century. Can North and South reunify? How? Other equally “impossible” peaceful results have happened. Check out the Five Step Plan Dr. Ed Marshall, author of The Peace Prescription, proposes for Koreans.
We need The Peace Law to prevent killings and massacres. Here is how that law would do the job.
Some people believe that killing is a good thing and that they must do the killing. That’s not what most of us would call “a good human value”. Read about the difference “The Peace Law” could make.
Burma’s civil war had almost ended after the plan I suggested in 2009 was followed by leaders of pro-democracy forces and of the then ruling military dictatorship forces. Flare-ups in violence over the past couple of years between multi-ethnic factions and the central government call for one more step. Here it is.
