According to Dr. R.B. Herath, we have reached a nuclear tipping point and a catastrophe looms.
With A New Beginning for Humankind: A Recipe for Lasting Peace on Earth, a study by Dr. R.B. Herath, he explains why the current global system of checks and balances are failing to meet new challenges to world peace. He presents a novel, revolutionary approach to lasting peace on the planet and an end to global war.
The book demonstrates that the main challenges to world peace are primarily a possible outbreak of a worldwide nuclear disaster and the likelihood of the world repeating its violent history, leaving a present dismal human fate of living under intermittent clouds of global war. However, according to Herath, these challenges can be overcome.
"Overcoming global conflicts is not possible if we continue to depend on conventional peacekeeping measures," says Herath. "It will become possible only if we think creatively for new and different solutions."
Pulling from his experience in international relations and conflict resolution, Herath fears that if we do not take action soon, it may be too late.
"We humans have the ability to make the world what we want it to be," says Herath. "The four worst enemies of peace are found within us: greed, vengeance, irresponsibility and the inability to treat global wellbeing as a major issue."
According to Herath, every human, no matter the age, can play an important role in the push for lasting global harmony.
