You’ve heard of chaos theory. You might know it as the butterfly effect - a hurricane in China is caused by a butterfly flapping its wings in New Mexico. A more rigorous way to express this is that small changes can lead to large results. Our lives are an ongoing demonstration of this principle.
We live in an age where ideas travel as fast as a tweet and an instagram. Change can be achieved by cell phone! What are the long term effects if millions of people Instagram pro-peace messages? What will the political effects be if we imagine and share a vision of a world without war?
Antiwar.me is a resource site providing tools and activities to promote peace. From social media campaigns and contests to merchandise that show where you stand and help fund Antiwar.com. The days of large peaceful sit-ins are gone. We must escalate peace in a different way.
Take part in our current campaign, “I’m already Against the Next War”. Sign up for our free Thunderclap and send a message to the President. Additionally, post a selfie with a pro peace message along with the hashtag #WhyIamAntiwar. That’s it -- you are Escalating Peace. Post pics with your friends, flash some peace signs or hand color t-shirts with pro peace messages and make sure to use our hashtag #WhyIamAntiwar.
We also have facebook, twitter and google + social media covers you can download.
Small changes will have big effects when we each reach out to people we know and ask them to renounce violence in favor of peaceful alternatives.
