Atrium Society – Youth Peace Literacy Presents theBrave New Child Peace Museum


 

Are we born hardwired for war? Is war in our DNA?

 

“Most honest combat vets will tell you, perhaps not eloquently but in their own way, the same thing: essentially that combat is in our human DNA and demands to be exercised.... The question is, can we humans evolve peacefully, or will we succumb to instincts we can’t transcend?”

In today’s world there is conflict the world over – at home, at school, in offices, among nations. There are ongoing attempts to stop the fighting, stop battles, and stop wars, yet they still go on. What creates this conflict? What is its origin? Is it possible that we are hardwired for war?

The intent of this museum is to understand what prevents peace through observing the nature and structure of conflict created by conditioned thinking.
