    Thanks for the good discussion.
    I was thinking about what Leonard commented last night that is it possible to make peace profitible. I knew it shouldn't be, but I couldn't explain why. Now I have a good answer in mind by taking an example of Jesus' story in the wilderness. He rejected the ability of transforming everything into food, miricales, and infinite power because, I think, those things cannot save this world. The motivation of pursuing profit comes from and benefit our physical self, however, too much of it will lead us into destruction. I believe Jesus realized that, so he chose another way. He showed us what love really is and hoped people can follow his example. And I think that is the key to guide us to peace.

      I see, but the world Jesus expected to come should build up on earth, right? (Mattew 6:10)

      It would be great if that would happen. We'll do the best we can.

    I have an interview early tomorrow, so I'm opting out. I hope someone records this, because I'm interested in Aristotle.

      As it turns out, Joseph, these are AUDIO lectures that we listen to and then discuss. So, yes, the group has the CDs.
