Catch A Peace Tiger By The Tail

This week, we have added a tiger to our menagerie of animals for peace. Is that safe? Shouldn’t we remember Life of Pi, for goodness sakes?

It’s true that we all have the capability to act violently. We may even have the propensity toward violence.

That doesn’t mean we have to act violently.

The peace tiger reminds us that it is possible to be both powerful and peaceful. We don’t have to be perfect. In contrast to what some well-meaning, but annoying, activists say, no, we don’t all have to cultivate the purity of inner peace before we have a chance of ending the carnage of war.

Our dark impulses are real. So is our ability to keep those impulses under control.
