[ by Charles Cameron — ever grateful ]
Top-down peace talks are by no means a bad thing, maybe even a source of joy..
but to tell the truth..
.. peace is with the withinners:
Pravmir, Egypt’s Al-Azhar University to Hold Peace Conference With Pope NCR, Vatican calls on Catholics and Buddhists to work together to promote nonviolence
A tip-of-the-hat to Ursula Le Guin for her marvelous coinage, “the withinner”.
