Our deepest and highest impulse is to peace

Somewhere near our core is a violent impulse, and so there will always be men and women who choose force to get their way – and we must be vigilant.

But in our very deepest place we mean no harm to others. Our deepest and highest impulse is to peace – to leave others alone and to be left alone to enjoy and explore this world, this universe.

Perhaps here, on this world more than eight light years from Earth, we may build a commonwealth where all have so much plenty that none have the urge to take lives and property from their neighbors by violence.
