What is peace?

  People want peace, but what is it? Is it simply an absence of conflict or is it something deeper?

to me, peace is like serenity. i think people want to not be at war all the time, and i think that a sense of peace involves a sense of security and therefore brings about happiness to a degree. but if everything was peaceful, it would be boring. i know it goes deeper than this for me, but seeing as how i have to eat dinner, i'll comment later.

  AS humans, we will never have peace.

  peace is balance for me, we will never have peace anywhere it would have to come from every human being. We are too selfish, too careless, too naive.....we will have to give up many things we do not wish to..

  I think this needs to be broken down. International peace? Peace among humans? Peace among carbon-based life forms?

Or is that your question?: How far does man want this peace to go?

  Peace is best defined by it's opposite, war. You all know what war is, the lack there of is peace.

but without war, things can still be unfair. Is it simply a lack of warfare? because even then, we will have so many problems to deal with.

  peace - leunig

peace is my drug
it stops the pain.
in safe reflecting rooms
or in a lane
or in a park
i will lie
and get some peace
and get high
if it's pure
and there's lots of it about
i overdose
and pass out
and dream of peace
my favourite thing,
when nobody wants me
and nothing's happening.

  Peace can only be brought about by the end of class warfare. Kill the burgeoiueioius! Viva la Revolucion! Marx! Marx! Marx!

Ahem, sorry, that was my spleen talking.
