>I saw a bumper sticker that said “Department of Peace.” A google.com search brought an interesting movement to light–The Department of Peace. Here’s a bit from their website:
Participate in an historic citizen lobbying effort to create a U.S. Department of Peace. This legislation was introduced into the U.S. Senate and re-introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives in September of 2005.
The primary function of a Department of Peace will be to research, articulate and facilitate nonviolent solutions to domestic and international conflict.
The Department will focus on peaceful conflict resolutions, prevent violence and promote justice and democratic principles to expand human rights.
