1.  The problems of our times are best understood as a crisis of modernity. 
Humanity is seeking optimal syntheses of modern and traditional institutions.

2.  The greatest illusion of our times is that modern capitalism has
unlimited opportunities for profit making and therefore could (if it were not held
back by misguided idealists) provide jobs and security for everybody.

3. The second greatest illusion of our times is that modern nation-states
could take up the slack and provide jobs and security where markets fail.

4.   What Viviane Forrester calls "economic horror" (i.e. the insecurity of
most and the poverty of many) cannot be overcome without relying also on older
institutions, such as families, churches, and neighborhood communities; and
also on the post-modern institutions, such as economia solidaria which are in
the process of being invented. 

5. Without an end to economic horror there will be no peace.ANYWHERE

6.  People  sometimes do not like community, do not like bonding, do not like
cooperating, do not like participating, and prefer to be left alone to
control their own private worlds.   The thesis that cooperation is necessary to
overcome economic horror and establish peace does not require the premise that
people are naturally or culturally inclined to like it.

7.  It is a mistake to focus exclusively on the poorest of the poor.   The
greater problem is the majority.

8. Peace culture is a middle class culture.

9.  Bringing in the excluded  is not just bringing in the poor.  It is
bringing in the drug abusers, the people with criminal records, the mentally ill,
the alcoholics, and many other categories of rejected people.

10.  The military, police, and corrections establishments are essential parts
of the American economy.  They will continue to be essential until
communities offer viable healthy survival strategies to the excluded and to the people who now make their livings controlling them..

11.   Two of the reasons why churches are key places to work for peace are
(1) religion is the citadel of the warmongers, and (2) without an ethic of
service an inclusive economy cannot be constructed.

12.  Moral education programs applying the findings of developmental
psychology, and experiences like work camps, may promote an ethic of service among people whether or not they are religious or interested in religion, 

13. Taking a tip from other nations, economic security here might be
organized neighborhood by neighborhood (barrio by barrio), but maybe in the U.S. some other way to fit everybody into some community or other is needed.
