I am wondering about the allure of false peace.

  • You know the kind of “peace” that comes from accommodation, rather than effective confrontation.
  • You know the kind of “peace” that comes from quiet acquiescence to the outcomes of the process of conflicts.
  • You know the kind of “peace” that people seem to favor, when they shrug their shoulders, and seem to passively accept a false outcome, rather than doing the hard work of actively pursuing a different choice.

I wonder if the presence of false peace makes it harder for real innovation and change.

There is a marked difference between real peace and being “just left alone,” or, vainly hoping that the lion of conflict will consume your emotions and spirit last rather than first.

I wonder, do people really want change in their hearts, or do they just say that they do with their mouths?
