As men have committed wars that cause billions of refugees over the years, not to mention aggression and its aftermath stuffed into Pandora's Box, what will it take for the male testosterone fueled by industrial military toxic weaponry to cool its heels? What will it take to stop proxy wars and arms exports for blowing up Earth and all forms of life escalating man-made climate change? What will it take? Here are some of the voices from the past regarding the history of a male-dominated world:
"It is not by the sword or spear, by soldiers and armed force, that truth is to be promoted, but by counsel and gentle persuasion."–Athanasius, Bishop of Alexandria
"And of all the plagues with which mankind are cursed, Ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst."–Daniel Defoe, as in Robinson Crusoe
Regarding centuries of faith wars, "We have enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love."–Jonathan Swift, as in Gulliver's Travels
"There is no such source and cause of strife, quarrel, fights malignant opposition, persecution and war
and all evil in the state, as religion if it once enters into our evil affairs as our government would soon be destroyed."–Wisconsin Supreme Court
"Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge and the unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind."–Bertrand Russell, British philosopher and historian
It would help the United States especially to produce a candid ongoing TV program describing world religions and their varied dogmas that have for centuries influenced society- politics and government. Such facts would aid young people to understand what influences the world the most. The big-three related related faiths alone would bring enlightened truth to young people who are not aware of Ecclesiastic history. America is is still fighting in the Middle East partially through scorch and burn devastation. Syria where Jesus of Nazareth walked along the road has left orphans and their mothers as widows. The good teaching of this prophet was been left along the rubble and wastelands in Aleppo where the voices of babies and children crying will forever haunt the human mind as they echo other ghosts of deplorable wars.
