Si vis pacem…

Knowledge is an important tool against violence; it plays a fundamental role regarding to taking the blame of our own actions and it deeply influences our vision of the world and of THE other.

Unfortunately it doesn’t seem that this precious instrument is considered as much as it should be by our governments that in fact do nothing to spread culture where it lacks causing a bigger and bigger distance between those who can afford a high level education, and so a high level quality life, and those who simply cannot and are doomed to live a miserable life.

Instead of investing money on arming our soldiers we should better try to improve the quality of education, letting it to be more acccessible. We’ll see that more than be true the old saying «If you want peace prepare you to war» (Si vis pacem, para bellum) it’s true the fact that spreading culture is the best way to avoid violence.
